Vote - Week 23

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Week 23. The week where the wheels fell off and things started sliding down that hill, without any brakes or sense of direction.

It is also the week where we ended up losing three contestants before we even get to the starting line. When it happens early on, it's a shame. When it happens when there are so few of you, it has a way of changing the landscape. Especially with overall votes being as close as they tend to be this season.

Goodbye to sonophax, who posted to let people know and to the other two, who I hope are doing well: ____hejira and dizzydog - Thank you all for coming out to play this season, and for all of the enjoyment you have given people over the weeks. I hope that we will continue to see you in the Home Game, and that you will be sticking around to see where this crazy thing ends up!

For the rest of you, who are still along for the ride, this week the topic was "The Weak Force". Because, well, it was. :)

From what I've seen out of the entries this week, it certainly took people in some interesting directions!

I think you're going to have a good time reading!

So, get out there - read, comment and vote for your favorites, because the bottom two contestants are leaving us this week.

The poll closes Thursday, April 19th at 9pm EDT!

Good luck to everyone!

Just because I like to put the fear into people some times. Gary, a few Topsy-Turvy questions! When is the deadline to say if we'd like to use it? Also, can it be conditional? (eg. Gary, please flip the poll if X is bottom/top but if not then do nothing?)

You have an hour before the poll closes and absolutely you can make it conditional.

May I ask where/how you got that icon?
Because I know I qualified for it, but I never got a link to it. I only got a "Top 100" icon, as you can see...

Oh, I put it in the topic thread because I was hoping to save someone from being eliminated... drat. Suppose I ought to have mentioned that in an email or something. :(

I'm still getting used to your name change too :D Thank goodness you have the same icon... which is what I use to identify most people first, anyway.

Wheels completely came off with this one. I'm fine but had a messy day.

I made it 10 weeks further than any other season I played, survived my first Gatekeeper, and had two great intersections, so I'm happy with my results this season :D I'll be around, best of luck to those that are left!

Gary, can we request a Home Game thread this week? Well, sure, we CAN, but MAY we please have a Home Game thread? I found a couple homers through the green room threads, but I know there's more, and it's low enough numbers now (sigh) that I'd like to make a point of reading them, too!

I voted.
I even managed to coment on something.
I think I'm going to sleep some even if there is writing stuff I should work on. I need to write more for Dragon Prime and work on A Vampire Artist and i has a zombie story I want to rewrite. Also, I think sometimes that it would be a good idea to jot down more of the poetry junk that runs around my brain. Then I remember I'm crazy so it really doesn't matter.

I voted. I commented for the first time in a while. I'm about to go to bed before 11, because I have to be up at six tomorrow (to get ready to lead lab for a bunch of prenursing students).

...is the world ending?

Sort of nerve stretching, with real life turning up chaos and warfare, and three art shows to juggle, its getting a little hairy around here!

Have voted and read ...I think but anything is possible.

Bring on the next challenge, and am rather evil as I haven't had coffee yet.

HOW did you manage to do this by our Monday night? I'm still boggling at that.

I know you read early, as entries come in. I've been trying to learn from your example there, over the weeks.

But finishing reading 54+ entries just after the submission deadline? Wow.

You must have had some good plans for the week that you wanted to get to. ;)

Husband and kids sleeping. We' re across the country, and jetlag is working in my favor! Sorry I've not been around much; school vacation means I'm on Mom Duty more than usual. XOXO

Good luck, and have a good vacation.
