Vote - Week 2

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Gather ‘round kids and kidlets, masters and misses, messrs and madames, Freys and Lauries - for I have a tale to tell.

it was the best of times, it was the worst of times and I believe your liver is diseased.

Stop! Stop! I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, there's no reason to do these lines here.

What we are actually doing is the Week 2 poll of LJ Idol: Exhibit A. Why? Because we like you.

And because it’s time for the Week 2 poll. You just get to read a bunch of talented writers suffering for your entertainment because we like you!

Before we get to the actual poll though, we have a bit of business to deal with. There were a couple contestants who did not make it to the poll this time around. Which means they have left the main poll and have automatically been placed in Second Chance Idol. They will have a shot to get back in, but it’s going to be a lot more difficult.

Those leaving us are: barrelofrain, n_maranda_coy and ravenshrinkery! Good luck in Second Chance Idol!

For the rest of you, it’s magic time!

We will be losing the Bottom 7 this time, so the stakes just got a little higher!

Make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites - and tell your friends to read, comment and vote as well! (with the emphasis on the first two!!)

The poll closes Monday Feb 4th at 9pm EST.

Good luck to everyone!

Ummm...

Shouldn't that be the "fristies" dance?

Happy Frist. I'll dance either way!

What happens when you mix a member of a Game of Thrones family known for betrayal with a comedic genius and force them to perform together!

Ohhhh.

(I'm still confused, but at least I'm confused in a way that makes sense now. :) )

Yikes, losing 7! That's a lot of writers going home :(

I know - but we knew it was going to be a short season, and for better or worse, that's how it's done. Ugh!

Is it just me, or are all the hyperlinks in the message text to some coupon service?
Nevermind...

Apologies to everyone - I haven't read or commented yet due to a host of medical crap. But I'll be doing so this weekend. I can't wait to see how things go this weekend, and wow - 7 people. Could be interesting... well, it WILL be interesting! The game will just be losing some lovely, talented people, as always. :/

I'm in the same boat. I've read all of them, but only commented on a handful before I got completely burned out.

Ouch 7 of us! I need to catch up on my reading, but so far I've loved so much of what this topic has inspired.

Feb. 1st, 2013 02:21 am (UTC)
I fully agree. There have been a lot of outstanding entries this week - and I've only been able to read through about ten of them! This will be tough.
roina_arwen
Feb. 1st, 2013 05:31 am (UTC)
Me too - I'm hoping to get more read tomorrow, since we'll be on a 2-1/2 hour road trip down to TN.

Same here. This is going to be a rough one.

Oh noes! 7 this time? Time to get nervous.

Oops, too late, already did that.

Feb. 1st, 2013 02:36 am (UTC)
Seven! I am very sorry to hear that, especially as the quality of entries I have read so far has been superb!

At this moment, I just want everyone to pause and reflect on the fact that Bea Arthur was the best Golden Girl.

I happily pray at the altar of Bea.

While Bea Arthur was amusing, especially as a part of that cast - I counter that with the fact that Betty White is still alive, and still funny as hell.

7...eek! I keep forgetting this is Mini Idol, with extra added bonus doom, or at least a higher rate of doom per week.

God I'm so nervous I'm literally sick to my stomach!

I need to finish reading everybody and commenting but I have GOT to go to bed. Good luck everyone, I am amazed at the entries I've read so far. You all are a talented lot.

We lost power for several hours tonight, which means I didn't really get to do any reading yet. Hopefully tomorrow will prove more reliable in the electricity and internet department.

Because, EEK! Seven people!

Oh my goooooood, SEVEN.

...Wait. Last week we lost 10 (5 that didn't get entries in, 5 to the polls). This week we lose 10 (3 from entries, 7 to the polls). Is this a thing? Or am I reading too much into it? Would it have been 5 and 7 either way?
roina_arwen
Feb. 1st, 2013 05:36 am (UTC)
Yeah, I wondered the same thing!
lapis_lazuli615
Feb. 3rd, 2013 08:26 pm (UTC)
I hadn't even put 2 and 2 (or, in this case, 7 and 3) together... yikes.
dreamsreflected
Feb. 4th, 2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
this was my thought as well, if we're losing 10 a week that's going to go very quickly, which I guess it the point of the short season right?

Phew! Everything read and vote completed! My eyes are exhausted!

Same! Suddenly not looking forward to the full Season 9 fun - it should have a LOT to read and deal with, eek.

This reading and commenting and voting thing. Of course I'll get it done in time, but my goodness, the brainfog caused by sickface is making this difficult! Ever onward...belated best of luck to everyone, now that we're so close to the wire!
kandigurl
Feb. 5th, 2013 12:26 am (UTC)
Aaaand DONE. With half an hour to spare, even! Much relief. :)

Feb. 5th, 2013 01:07 am (UTC)
That was me last week. Probably me next week! This week I'll be a wee bit late. LOL. I managed to sleep for half the day. Oops?
