Results - Week 19

We come to the end of another week here at Casa de Idol, and once again need to say goodbye to a mix of old and new friends.

It doesn't get any easier. However, now that it's September, we had least have the knowledge that Second Chance will be opening up in the near future.

Most people know that the great monkeysugarmama sacrificed this week. So that's one less person on the main tribe who has to worry. In fact, her sacrifice ends up creating a tie. More on that in a moment.

For the Redemption Tribe - we are losing two: miintikwa and uncawes

In the main tribe, we were scheduled to lose three, but because of the sacrifice, that number goes down to two.

kajel and ryl are tied, so neither of them will be eliminated, thanks to that sacrifice. They will join the Redemption Tribe next week.

However, that still leaves one - and the great deza is the one who will be leaving us.

Thank you to all of you for coming out this season, and I hope that you will Home Game until the Second Chance opens, and you will throw your hat in for one last grasp at the ring!

Topic - Week 20

It's Intersection Time!

For those of you who haven't been through this before, that means you need to partner up with a fellow contestant. You will each write your own entry, but how (or if) they connect will be completely up to the two of you.

DO NOT post here for partners. Go to the new Work Room. That is the place for such things.

There is a list of four topics. Choose ONE of them. Your partner must choose one of the others.

The topics are:

Intersubjectivity
Shibusa
Rapture of the Deep
Captcha the flag


The deadline to link your entries back here is Tuesday, Sept 9th at 8pm EDT Please make sure to mention the name of your partner when you post your link!

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 20

You've seen the topic post and are probably now scrambling around with that "WTF" look on your faces. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/776330.html

Some of you may be cackling with glee.

So, I'll make it easier by providing links to information about the topics themselves. Who to partner with? You'll have to figure that bit out on your own!

Intersubjectivity - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersubjectivity
Shibusa - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibui#Defining_shibui_or_shibusa
Rapture of the Deep - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrogen_narcosis
Captcha the flag - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAPTCHA


When it comes to writing and creative projects, people are often called upon to work together closely with someone else. The process of writing for publication itself is often a collaborative effort involving a lot of give and take.

You've had 19 Weeks now to get your feet settled and get to know the people you are competing with, it should be interesting to see how you figure out this next step.
