Green Room - Week 19 - Day 7

The poll is closing tonight. In less time than it will take Tyrion Lannister to ferret out the Sons of the Harpy from Meereen, we will be losing 3 more contestants!

It's up to you - dear readers and voters in the battle for who will claim the throne of LJ Idol - to decide who will get one step closer, and who will end up a head shorter!



You know what they say: "When you play the game of Friends and Rivals, you either win or you die!"

(or something like that)

What do you plan on doing?

(and what did you do this weekend? Did you win more than you died? Or died a little more than you won?)

Results - Week 19

Every time I thought I had come to peace with "who is leaving this week", something would change.

That's the danger of basing your sense of mental calm on something like an Idol poll in the last few hours before it's going to be closed. No matter what the eventual outcome, the voters are going to find a way to mess with you!

In the end though, they landed on a decision - a decision made by 4 votes. Which means it was less than 1 person voting for everyone in a given group.

The group that ended up being safe was Group 2. So congratulations to you.

As for the others, we are losing 2 contestants from Group 3:


We are also losing 1 contestant from Group 1:


That's a hell of a lot of talent to be cutting at once, but cut we must.

I hope that we will continue to see them in the Home Game (*cough* more songs please encrefloue) and of course around here, cheering on their personal favorites!

Topic - Week 20

It's the Top 12 - time to shake things up a little bit!

You are used to seeing the list of topics and picking 1.

That's been nice.

But now you are looking at the list and selecting 2 of them! To make matters more interesting, we are also at the end of the first run topics! So starting this week, people who already had their topic selected will have the chance to have another of their ideas featured!

Those topic selections for this week are:

Yes, Anastasia
Game night gone wrong
Creeping Meatballism
Immanentize the eschaton!

The deadline to link both of your entries back to this thread is Friday, April 29th at 8pm EDT

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 20

There's a different sense of balance that comes with doing two pieces in the space where you would normally take to due one.

People get into patterns and schedules - but deadlines (Idol or otherwise) don't also fit to those. Sometimes you need to shake things up a little bit.

You have four topic choices, and need to pick two of them to write. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/924359.html

Which ones are speaking to you? Which square peg are you going to try to fit into the square hole and which into the oval?
