Results - Week 23

Thank you again to our Gatekeepers: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1030354.html

It was a difficult choice this week.

I can tell that from how close the voting ended up being.

We could have lost between 4-8 is week.

We are losing 4.

Because *1 more vote* and it tipped it into what would have been a 6-way tie! That's 1/3 of the contestants would have been in a tie...

Before I reveal who is leaving, I also want to thank our Jury! Once again, it came down to a single vote. It didn't end up "saving" anyone, but I'm also quite sure that having immunity from your peers is always a good thing when facing the Gatekeepers!

Congratulations to bleodswean!

Which means that I can't delay any more in giving out the results, who will be leaving us and crossing over to join the Jury!

It's 4 veterans. All of them have had an incredible season this year. But, eventually we are going to get down to only 1 person left standing, which means at some point we need to say goodbye to all the others.

Those leaving us this week are:

i_17bingo
lordrexfear
murielle
swirlsofblue


Thank you for everything that you have brought to this season to make it special! I really hope that we will continue to see you in the Green Room and posting for the Home Game!

Welp bye.

I won't have time to actually probably do the jury, at least the way I wanted... I never had time to do reading properly while playing, so if you don't see here on LJ don't be shocked.
It's why I gave out my twitter and Facebook awhile ago. Here they are again, if you wanna hang out still and see my regular crazy thoughts:
Twitter: reidhcooper
Facebook: Reid Harris Cooper
Instagram: reidhcooper

If you do decide to add/friend me on either, please also send a message along with it so I know you're a real somebody.

Love you all. Some of my favorite fellow contestants are out... some of my favorites are still in here.

This will probably be my last season of LJ Idol as well, unless it opens some networking I wasn't aware of.

I'll try to remember to check the prompts and Home Game if inspired, but no promises.

I am sorry you didn't survive. You provided a fascinating, urban view that I loved.

I am glad I was enjoyed and I won't stop writing. I'll just concentrate a bit more of certain other writings. If worthy for the world they might find their way to my official website

LordRex, I feel like I've watched you grow up in Idol. Are you sure you wouldn't try it again? You're a regular, an old timer!

I was already I think 22 when I started on LJ Idol. I'd have to hunt through my calendar...
so I hope I wasn't that immature back when!

Not like THAT, silly!
Regardless...22 is still really young!
And, not immature, just, you have had a lot of living thrown at you since then.

I'm so sorry to see you go! I'm going to add you on twitter next time I log on — I have the same username there as here, so you'll know it's me :)

That will definitely make it easier to know it's a real person adding me and not a lot of adds I get based off idek.

Yay bleodswean! Yes! Yes! Yes! So well deserved! Way to go, E! Way to go! So proud of you! Hugs!

What a magnificent journey this has been! Everybody has been so kind and so supportive. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Can't believe the other names on this list--such wonderful, wonderful writers, every one of you. Sorry I won't be reading your work every week. Unless of course you're like me and intend to haunt Idol in the Home Game and in the Green Room.

What a fabulous season! Hugs everyone! And the very best of luck to the survivors!

Right back at you lordrexfear! It's been a pleasure to get to know you a bit better this year. I hope this won't be the last we'll see of you. (Don't care if I embarrass you...I'm hugging you back!)

Awwww, Murielle. I'm so sad to see your name up there! You're always such a positive and supportive force every week, and I have loved your entries so much. I do hope you keep haunting like crazy because I would super miss you otherwise <3333

Murielle, you are terrific. I agree with all that's being said here, a wonderful writer and lovely soul. I'm not ready for you to be gone.

Oh, thank you! You're so kind. But have no fear, I'll be around. Gary will have to beat me with a large stick to get rid of me. Hugs

It was a pleasure reading you this season and there are a lot of entries that come to mind at this moment and you really make Idol more chirpier and a happy place to be in <3 *Hugs* Stay the same!

Thank you so much! But you won't have to miss me too much, I'll be around. (Thinking about Home Gaming.) This season has been such a joy for me. I've been grinning from ear to ear from the start. And your wonderful comments and encouragement have meant so much. Thank you, halfshellvenus! Thank you SO much!

I don't know if there is some funny punctuation mark thing for shedding tears, but I am so very sorry you will be gone. You have an amazing heart.

Jul. 11th, 2017 02:47 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! No tears, rayaso. Gary can't get rid of me that easily. ;-> I'll still be around, commenting in the GR, and Home Gaming if the spirit moves me. I love you all too much to just vanish. You have been so, so very supportive and kind, and such a great writer. I'm looking forward to what you're going to do in the next few weeks.

I think it's ;-; or ; ; Maybe the second. The first one looks like a vampire or a space invader from an arcade game.

Whichever one it is, it goes double for me. That was a painful list to read.

Thanks. I agree, the first does look like something from an arcade game. The commas look like little legs.

I definitely wouldn't have guessed these would be the four leaving. I'm so sad to see all of you go!

i_17bingo, I am especially going to miss your tales of Rafaela! I hope you continue them! I look forward to them every week.

And swirlsofblue, you've had some of my favorite entries this season. I really loved your one this week.

Eliminations suck, you guys!

In a way, I'm glad we had multiple gatekeeper rounds because it really is difficult to have to be involved in the voting out weekly, especially at this point in the competition... But this was an especially harrowing week.

I'm not buttering up anyone on this list by saying you are all tremendous writers and have accomplished some really great pieces all season long. I expect to be reading more from all of you in whatever format you choose.

i_17bingo, my amazing intersection partner...I have been consistently impressed by you all season. I was really excited to get to work with you and was not disappointed by the outcome. I love the way your mind works, the humor and romance and surprises. I know you won't stop creating because that is part of who you are.

And swirlsofblue, your entry was my very favorite this week!! It just goes to show I have no idea what Gatekeepers are looking for! I love the depth you brought to the prompts. You will be missed.

Thank you, Jury, I'm humbled. And feel hugely encouraged by your vote of confidence.

These are really hard eliminations. Particularly swirlsofblue and murielle. :( I thought you both had an incredibly strong season. Great writing, lots of experimentation, leaps and bounds with words, and truly generous reading and commenting of the other players. I know this doesn't feel good. I hope you both are looking over the weeks and weeks of great writing you've done and feel proud and accomplished! *HUGS*

i_17bingo, sorry to see you go. I was so excited to see you return and bring Rafaela with you. And of course, you are a great Idol player!

lordrexfear you certainly seem like a man with a lot going on. Best of luck with future endeavors, writing, acting, enjoying life!

~*Congrats*~ on the immunity, very well deserved! :D :D

And thank you so much for those kind words, they mean a lot, especially coming from you. And thank you for always being such an amazing support. Being voted out was a lot easier back in season 9 when I didn't expect to make the top 100. It is hard. But I do feel proud. *Hugs*

Just want to say how honoured I feel to be going out with i_17bingo, lordrexfear, and swirlsofblue. Each one of you is such a fantastic writer, and I have enjoyed your work so much, and I hate to see you go. Losing each of you is a huge loss for Idol.

Hugs all round!

Oh no! We really are starting to run out of people, aren't we? Particularly sorry to see i_17bingo and murielle on that list - you've both been very supportive in your comments, which I have really appreciated.

Overall, I think swirlsofblue has written her best stuff _ever_ this season, and I've really enjoyed it.

i_17bingo has such a polished style and such a way with humor-- I would never have expected him to go out this week. :(
