Results - Week 25

With the dwindling numbers and two immunities in the mix, it was only a matter of time before one ended up making an impact.

Was it the Legacy Advantage? Nope. That advantage guaranteed the person who held it going into this vote an automatic spot in the Top 10. So congratulations to j0ydivided!

Which means it was the Jury who threw a wrench into the poll this week, and caused things to turn out differently.

Heck, the last few hours of voting made me wonder if things were going to turn out differently even without the Jury vote...

2 votes made the difference this time around, with the Jury ultimately awarding this week's Immunity to favoritebean! Congratulations!

Which means that she is safe, and she was actually the one who would have gone home this week... which means the person with the next fewest amount of votes is going instead.

This is where things changed the most in my "what if" scenarios.

At the end of the day though, it is flipflop_diva who is saying goodbye this week. She will be joining the Jury for their remaining weeks to make those last, crucial decisions on who will remain safe.

That's the one bright side of saying goodbye to anyone at this point, especially someone that you always really enjoying reading - that they will have a say in how this will all play out.

Thank you so much for everything you have brought to this season!

Wow! This was a tough poll! I'm really glad my intersection partner Favoritebean is safe, but I really liked FlipFlop_Diva's entry this week too!

I'm sorry to see flipflop_diva leaving, especially on such a great quake piece! I've really enjoyed reading your relatable entries. I still see the vivid picture you painted of your father attempting to teach you how to drive a manual transmission! :)

Congratulations to favoritebean for her Jury immunity!

Awwww, thank you!

And heh. That's awesome. I'm not sure my dad would be quite as amused if I told him how his bad teaching inspired one of my writings, but that's so cool you remember that one!

I had this sneaking suspicion all day it was going to be me. I'm a little sad, but I'm also pretty proud of myself. I went into this season just hoping to make the Top 100, so Top 11 is pretty cool, I think.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who read, voted for me or commented through all these many, many weeks. I've had a truly wonderful time, and I am looking forward to being part of the jury.

Also, Gary, a huge thank you to you for running this amazing competition! You do not get nearly enough thanks for all the work you put in.

I swore it was going to be me this week, and if the poll ended a few hours earlier, it would have been, but you did some incredible work all season and that is the simple fact of it!

No! I enjoyed your stuff all season and this week you made me laugh out loud, more than once.

But now you get to come and hang out on the jury. Maybe we can convince Gary to get us snacks.

Sorry to see you go! I also enjoyed your piece this week. I clicked to remind myself which entry was yours and when it came up I thought "Wait, really? That one got cut?" The contest is definitely starting to feel more brutal as we get closer to the end!

Congratulations favoritebean! Well deserved!

At this point in this season, I am resolved that someone is leaving each week. Is it easier to say goodbye? No. But I am resolved. flipflop_diva I have enjoyed so many of your entries this season, and I am grateful to have been able to read your work for the past 25 weeks. I hope you will Home Game, and will enjoy being on the jury. Very best writerly wishes to you. Hugs

Thank you so much! That means a lot!

I'm excited for Jury. And I'm definitely going to try to Home Game. I like having a reason to write every week, so I'm not ready to give it up yet!

That was quite the shakeup in results vs. implied at the end there. I don't even know what the Legacy Advantage is, or when it came into being. :O

So sorry to see you go, flipflop_diva! I've enjoyed so many of your entries this season, both the non-fiction and the fiction ones. You have a lot of talent, and you've used it well!

I just got back from a bucket list checking performance, and am very surprised by the results.

Thank you to the jury for granting immunity. I am humbled by your vote and support this week.


flipflop_diva, I'm sorry to see you go. I really loved getting to know you through your stories this season. Your departure came as a surprise to me. I hope you'll participate in the home game.
