Green Room - Week 16 - Day 7

There is a poll going on, for those who might have missed it
Also, the Second Chance Topic:
and Work Room:

because, as you know, there have to be priorities in life! Making sure your Idol business is handled is clearly on the top of that list!

Which is why it is on the top of this list.

Which is also why this list is now a sworn enemy of the Flash.
So, how is your week going?
Welcome to March !
What sort of madness can we expect from you?

Results - Week 16

All eliminations are sad. This one strikes a personal blow to my heart. It ends one of the most dramatic runs in Idol history, coming to an end here in Week 16. Still, WEEK 16, I hope that everyone who leaves at this point is proud of what they have accomplished.

There are other people going as well, and some damn fine ones as well, but there was one that I was watching with bated breath to see what was going to happen.

Given how close the polls were anyway, a few more votes in either direction could have tipped the scales in both polls, and I think that speaks highly of the overall quality of Season 8 Idol contestants, as well as the support that they enjoy. In Tribe 2, it literally came down to a single vote. In Tribe 2, the difference with two of the three was two votes!

Oh Idol voters, you like to keep us on our toes!

Leaving us this week, as the first victims of the 'of Doom are:

and the one true Master of Redemption sikander7

It's been incredible having all of you. I hope that we will continue to see you in the Home Game, and sticking around to support your favorites! Thank you so very much for everything!

Vote - Second Chance - Week 3

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Welcome to the next to last week of Second Chance Idol.

The theme of the day was "Second Look" and there are certainly a collection of talented writers assembled here who deserve one. So, I hope you take the time to read, comment and vote for your favorites. Because things are about to get interesting!

Unfortunately, some people didn't make it to the starting line this week. But thank you to everyone who has taken part in Second Chance Idol! For those who didn't mention dropping, I hope you are OK!

10 contestants with the highest vote counts will have the opportunity to move forward into the meat grinder of the main competition. 7 with the lowest votes will be eliminated.
Those remaining will slog it out for the final spots.

So, make sure to show your vote for your favorite Second Chancers!

The poll closes Monday, March 5th at 8pm EST and then, we will see what we shall see!

Have fun!

Topic - Week 17

It's Week 17 and we are in the (a few weeks) of Doom.

Which means that by now, you should be bringing your "A-game".

It may be the final week to use your byes, but I suspect that a lot of people are going to continue to step it up this week, to prove that they deserve their spot in the Top 100. After all, you can't be

Bringing a Knife to a Gun Fight.

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Monday, March 5th at 9pm EST.

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 17

The new topic is up:
and even I'm amused that the life long pacifist in real life (me) went with the violence this week! :)

But with the scent of Doom in the air, it seemed apt.

Congratulations to our Top 100 of Season 8. It's been a long, strange journey, with a lot of road ahead of you. But take a moment, breathe in the air and remember your fallen comrades.

Now regroup, and try to get that taste of Doom out of your mouth? You can't can you? That's why I told you to breath it in!!

I actually don't have a lot to say this week. I suspect you already know whatever it was that I would have thrown out for the sake of conversation!

It is the final week to use your bye, and given how tight things were last week, I imagine that it stands the chance of being even more insane this time!

Looking through the entries from the past couple of weeks, do you see anything that is either a "common mistake" or at least a commonality in entries that didn't quite grab you? Something that people can fix in their own work going forward?
