Vote - Week 21

I was going to eliminate the two people who let me know that they dropped. I was going to eliminate the two people who didn't make it to the starting line on time this week.

But instead, I'm going to show some mercy and include them in the final vote-out numbers for the week. It also gives them the opportunity to, if they are able to do so, get an entry in to be considered. Of course, every one is going to know they were late... but might as well go out swinging!


If all of that sounds super vague, then you don't know what's happening this week.

It's a GATEKEEPER round.

I've gathered a group of trusted advisors to read and vote for their favorite entries. It's the first time this has ever happened in a non-"Open Topic" week, which makes me a little nervous, and a bit excited as well.

I certainly hope you brought your A-game.

You're going to need it.

When this week ends, next Tuesday evening at 8pm EDT, we will have our TOP 20.

And yes, the Jury will be voting for immunity, and there is still that Legacy Advantage floating around somewhere in the game. Which could very well make things interesting!

Good luck to you all.

You're going to need it! ;)

Good luck, everyone!

This is my first time in a gatekeeper week. *nervous*

Eeeep! Good luck everyone!

I'm glad I'm going on vacation this week and will have something to distract me from the agony. I've never been through a gatekeeper round before, but I'm already nervous!

Wishing all the best of luck. (This is pretty scary. I've never been through a gatekeeper vote either.)

I'm so sorry to everyone for missing the deadline, but I had a family thing that escalated and I'm pretty sure that, even with the reprieve, I won't make an entry in... so, I bow out and tell you all that it has been an extraordinary fun time! :) I am humbled to have made it this far.

Nooooo! I hope you'll reconsider and try to reach the deadline! I've enjoyed your stories, and I know that life happens. If your decision to bow out is final, please do visit us from time to time.

Don't give up! You can do it!

I had made my peace Gary!

and you go and give me a second chance and I'm freaking out

Your mercy, it burns my lord...

Ooh interesting...
I hope the Gatekeepers enjoy poetry.
Here's hoping they like everything and it becomes like that week recently in The Voice Australia where they gave two people the chance to stay together as a duo instead of eliminating one.

If that happened here, I'd hope we'd make the cooler choice then they did to go for the duo! (Although these two said no... and then did it anyways, but not on the show... so yeah)

What I'm saying?
Good Luck to us all.

Very interesting. But, this too, shall pass! Good luck to all.

Oh man. I'm a bit scared.

And may I say, Gatekeepers, I have no idea who you are, but that's a lovely shirt you're wearing.

Jun. 16th, 2017 02:28 pm (UTC)
Best of luck to everyone!

I'm sorry to hear that we've got some writers who are feeling the pressure.

This is a little later in the season than Gatekeepers have appeared before, I think? After they didn't show up on last week's open topic I thought that meant they weren't coming at all, I should have known better.

When I saw it was a Gatekeeper round, I had a moment of clarity because I realized that when Gary mentioned it last week it was actually foreshadowing...
Jun. 17th, 2017 03:48 am (UTC)
There's always foreshadowing.

This time I decided to break the pattern and use that pattern *as* the foreshadowing! :)
Jun. 17th, 2017 03:47 am (UTC)
Yep. This is the closest to the end that the Gatekeepers have ever appeared. But approximately the right number of months into the process.
Jun. 17th, 2017 05:38 pm (UTC)
That makes sense, of a sort. It's still a little frustrating on this end, but sensically frustrating now. I'm not certain that's better. ;)
Jun. 17th, 2017 12:20 am (UTC)
Ohhh boy. No polls to check hourly? No voters to bribe with cookies and bacon? My nails will be bitten to the QUICK by next Tuesday!
Jun. 17th, 2017 04:40 am (UTC)

I am probably not a gatekeeper..but accept cookies and bacon.
