Green Room - Week 15 - Day 14

Here we are, at the end of "The Week that would not end", staring down over the cliff of the Top 100, when Idol becomes a slalom on triple black diamond EX course. Or at least gets closer to that point.

We still have until tonight though to decide who it is that will be joining us in that Promised Land: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/763043.html

Based on what you've seen, who isn't getting the love that you feel their entry this week warrants?

Who are the "sleepers" of the competition? The gems that just haven't broken through the permafrost quite yet, but deserve the chance to grow into a gem tree?

Results - Week 15

It's time for the worst part of the week - saying goodbye.

diagenou
minikin

are leaving us from Tribe 1. Two well respected veterans leaving us far earlier than I would have predicted.

From Tribe 2 we have something slightly different:

Because dreamsreflected was one of the people who would have been eliminated. Except that she was the one who received BOUNCING IMMUNITY from roina_arwen this week! Which means that she is safe, and now that has been used, that immunity is gone from the game.

Which means that leaving us this week is our favorite time traveling T-Rex octavian_trex

and that crimsonplum and Heather Hambel Curley will be forming a new Redemption Tribe where they will be facing off next week.

Thank you to everyone who is leaving us this week. I hope to see you in the Home Game, and that you will be throwing your hat into the ring for a Second Chance!

Topic - Week 16

As we get to the Top 100, people are starting to wonder "What is coming up next in Idol?"

The only things that I can tell you right now is that

“A terrible beauty has been born”

and that the deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Tuesday, August 5th at 8pm EDT!

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 16

The new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/764463.html

Which just leads us to "What are you going to do with it????"

I was just reading a description of "How to pitch" to professional markets that I thought was quite interesting. (Completely paraphrasing) She said to find an angle that fits with a current need of the publication, and work the story you want to tell into that angle.

That's pretty much what happens with Idol topics! I put out a request for a specific concept, and then you figure out how to make it work with something you want to write about! :)
