Vote - Second Chance Idol - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It's Crunchtime!

Oh, come on, you knew I was going there!

Thanks to beautyofgrey for the topic last season. It didn't get used then, but it came in handy this week!

It really is getting down to the wire, and unfortunately that does mean that some folks will not be continuing the journey with us.

bituinatbuwan,estelle, gildedage, michikatinski, pandoraboy and birthday boy viagra are saying goodbye this week.

The stakes continue to go up as the numbers go down.

This week it will be our Top 5 who can go into the main competition and the Bottom 5 who will be eliminated!

So MAKE SURE to take the time to read the entries, comment on them, and support the ones you want to see more of in the weeks to come!

The poll closes Saturday Feb 5th at 1pm EST

Good luck!

Well shit, six people leaving because they didn't make the deadline. Sucks! Have reading and writing to do.

Damn, first, yay!

I knew some people missed but six..man. And 5 leaving...wow. I wonder if I will be one of them.

It's been fun:) I hate to lose so many at one poll though..
Feb. 2nd, 2011 05:44 am (UTC)
Dammit, can't I just get in already?

Argh! I would hate to get down to like 10 remaining and bust out!
Feb. 2nd, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
What I hate is, what if I get in the main game...and lose that very next poll?

Which would be worse? I can't decide.

Ah well. Maybe I won't get the chance to know...

Eek, way to turn up the pressure!!

I almost didn't make it to the deadline - it doesn't help that the timezone is nothing like mine so I'm never really sure when the deadline is! I should perhaps work that out sometime soon :D

Gotta do better or reading and commenting this week. People have been so good and kind to me on that and I feel neglectful. Even if I knew going in to this Second Chance Idol, i'd have enough to write, but much less to read.

It's why I never signed up for the main season to begin with.

Now... if Gary started coming up with a cash prize? I'd make it my life... but of course everyone would.
Feb. 2nd, 2011 03:45 pm (UTC)
Now THAT would be neat (not that I would win but it would still be fun:)
Feb. 2nd, 2011 08:23 am (UTC)
Oh dear, I'm so sorry I missed.

I had to go on a volunteering work trip from Sunday morning to Tuesday afternoon. It involved 3 long train rides, 3 cities and sleeping in two different hotels in those three days. And because I live in Europe (time zone difference) and didn't have internet access on the road I only saw the topic when I got home Tuesday evening. I wanted to write something, I really had all the best intentions... but I was so exhausted from the trip I just fell asleep.
When I woke up this morning I was like "Fuuuuu...."

A bye would have been very handy. Too bad I couldn't transfer my 2 byes from the main comp over here.

Sorry, I let you all down. :(

For anyone wondering, I'm fine. I'm just an art student, and my classes this semester have left me creatively tapped. I haven't been producing quality work, so better for me to just sit out.
Feb. 2nd, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
Did you have a good birthday?
Feb. 5th, 2011 03:01 am (UTC)
Frowny face.
Feb. 4th, 2011 07:27 am (UTC)
I don't know which is worse--missing the deadline by accident or choosing to back out for personal reasons. In my case it was the latter. I'm sad not to be here. :(
Feb. 5th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
There's always the home game?

As time goes on, the home game will get it's own thread. After all, we all become home game eventually!

::hugs:: I know that feeling. I thought I was out for the season until Gary started SCI.

I hope you keep writing...and sharing it!
Feb. 7th, 2011 05:54 am (UTC)
:) :) :)

Home game it is, till another opening to the game arrives! Looking forward to my first Home Game entry. Also looking forward to the choice of topics each week! Yeeeehaw!

I like you. :) Thanks for making my day a little brighter.
Feb. 8th, 2011 12:09 am (UTC)

And I hadn't thought about it but I guess anyone can home game one or both topics (SCI or Main Comp topics)

Good luck! Never stop writing!

It might be too late to mention this and even be seen, but I wonder if people would vote for me more if they knew I'm a fictional character? I know I came across as a bit of a jerk in the first couple of entries, so my writer tried to insert some partial truths from his/her life since last week.
Feb. 5th, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC)
*feels bad* I have a fondness for fictional characters who take on a life of their own, especially here on LJ.
Feb. 5th, 2011 10:47 pm (UTC)
In that case, I definitely should've mentioned it earlier. I didn't know how to react to the people who assumed my week 1 entry was fictional because I wanted it to be believable, so I wrote about cheating on a non-existent girlfriend who found out the following week in an attempt to explain why I didn't respond to comments that week! But of course that just made me seem like an even bigger jerk!
Feb. 6th, 2011 12:34 am (UTC)
I knew "alandunne" was a fictional character, from the name. I am not as good as some at figuring out who the writers are (I tend to let works stand on their own; I read in little bubbles, if that makes sense)

I feel bad that you didn't get to go further with it.
Feb. 6th, 2011 12:40 am (UTC)
Heh. I think, then, if you had been more familiar with the writer's background, it would have been very easy to guess.

I mean, how many competitors do you know that are Australian, or at least have enough knowledge of a certain part of Australia to be able to write (hopefully) to make it believable to those who live/have been there?

I don't know how obvious it was to other people that I was a fictional character, though.
Feb. 6th, 2011 01:04 am (UTC)
And that's the thing... as soon as I connected those dots (went to a website a few weeks ago and went, oh, huh) I filed the info and promptly forgot to leave a note.

Too much IRL to keep stuff straight. Something your writer and I are going to have in common, I suspect.
Feb. 6th, 2011 01:06 am (UTC)
Understood. My writer has definitely had too much going on IRL to try and figure out any of the other alts hanging about.
