Results - Second Chance - Week 2

It's that time again. Fortunately, with the Second Chance results, I am able to give some people good news as well as delivering the bad.

It makes for a more "mixed reaction post" but, eventually everyone will be leaving SCI one way or another - and from there, everyone but one person will be exiting from this season of Idol.

So, it's something that everyone will have to face at some point. Given that this week features exclusively veterans, in both the coming and the going, I know that's something that they know all too well.

Saying it doesn't make it any better, but maybe there is some solace in that notion. Maybe.

Leaving us from SCI this week are:

bakerlooline
dreamwriteremmy
genesisdesire
read2781
soprano1790

Thank you to all of you, not only for trying again with Second Chance, but for showing up in the first place. I hope we will continue to see you in the Home Game!

As for the five who have the opportunity to move forward into the main competition, they are:

barrelofrain
dakotawitch
kathrynrose
michikatinski
talon who has, like clockwork, already declined moving forward this round.

Anyone else who doesn't wish to move has until one hour before the next main competition topic deadline (Week 17) to let me know. Thanks, and congratulations!

Ah, pity the forfeited spot doesn't go to the next person in the list!

Grats to the four moving on, who were all, I think, quite deserving!

*HAPPY DANCE* for those moving on this week! All totally deserving! And I am so glad to see my friend michikatinski moving back in, she's such an awesome person!

I am sorry to see the others go, and I really do hope to see you around the GR's and the Home Game!

talon seems to have a mysterious strategy in play! Welcome back to any or all of the four who come back to the game! Sorry to see the five who have to go - I hope you'll stick around for the Home Game and GR and all!

Perhaps stretching SCI out for longer, seeing as how it means less people move into the main game each week?

Sorry to see some have to leave but congrats to those still in the game.

Sorry to see those who are leaving us go. There is some incredible talent in this group.

Good luck to all of you moving on to the next round of SCL. Hope to see many of you in the main competition if I get to stick around for a few weeks :)

I also want to thank everyone who reads and comments on my work here. It's not always been an easy choice to write as personally as I do in my Idol work, and I sometimes fear that y'all will get tired of hearing me process. But at the same time it's been a profoundly healing journey to put those words to screen, and to know that I had a deadline each week (whether in main competition or SCL) and the wonderful comments that so many of you leave has kept me at the keyboard through some fairly rough writing experiences. So thank you. And thank you to all of you who share yourselves through your own work.

Congrats to the people who moved on!

I FIGURED I was probably going to end up on this list (I seem to fall out whenever I go abstract LOL though I actually like the challenge of trying to write things SHORT). Either way I'm gonna see if I can get something out for erm... the next home game topic (and I might home game SCI AND archive-home-game too [does that make me weird?] for personal reasons -- I have a goal to write over 75k on ANYTHING this year and I like prompts, soooo yup.)

that is a worthy and noble goal!

I'm just curious. How many times can someone be in the top five and decline to move forward? I'm not trying to be bitchy. It just seems wasteful when someone consistently turns down the spot in the main competition, when other people would really like it.

Well... That's what I get for not doing fiction this week. I know fiction is more my strength. Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments. I love getting comments from people who are reading my work.

Congrats to everyone who is moving on. There were seriously some good entries this week.

I won't lie, I'm really disappointed to be leaving this week. I'm sad that SCI has to involve eliminations as well as the main game, but there you have it.

I hope you keep writing about Gwen.
