A few words from clauderainsrm:
Let us try this one more time:
Here we are, at the Final Round Two.
The first grouping were the victims of circumstance. The second were the brave, people who stepped into the danger knowing what was awaiting them.
This final group - the ones who were hanging back, who are here because they had to be here. :)
There have been people with theories about what was going to happen to this final grouping, and I'll confirm it now - the exact same fate as the people who walked into it willingly. :)
Which means we will still be losing four contestants from this particular poll.
The poll will be closing tomorrow, Thursday May 19th at 10pm EDT. It's a small window and huge stakes. Hopefully you already started reading ahead. If not, fortunately there aren't very many entries in the mix this time. Well, fortunately for readers.
Read. Comment. Vote to keep your favorites in the running.
Good luck to everyone!
