Voting - Week 24

A few words from clauderainsrm:

I have some good news and some bad news. Since the former is very much tied into the latter, I'll go with the bad news first.

Real life has claimed a couple more victims. Every great climb has people who fall out the closer you get to the summit, and Idol is no exception. Today we are saying goodbye to one amazing writer ecosopher and one annoying hack cemetaria who was never quite the newbie she played on television. I hope there will be a reveal on that latter, since it's one of those "was I really good enough???" stories where it's exactly what I said would be the case - they are as successful in an alternate identity as they were in the oneand they should really just listen to me in the first place! But some people want to see for themselves... and then let "real life" get to them!! *kicks her again*

At least one of them will be missed. *kicks the other*

I promised some good news was coming out of this - and here it is, due to those two leaving - CONGRATULATIONS, you are now officially the TOP 50 of LJ IDOL SEASON 8!

The Top 50 icons should be ready for rolling out by the end of this poll for anyone who wants them.

So, while you are celebrating - we are still getting down to the business of the actual poll, and losing a couple more from the collective talent pool.

The bottom two vote-getters from the poll will be eliminated. Anyone wishing to use a special power needs to let me know up to one hour before the poll closes. porn_this_way opted to use her Bye power this week, for those keeping track of such things at home.

There are a lot of good entries out there this week, as usual - so go forth - read, comment and vote for your favorites! And tell a friend to check them out as well!

The poll will close April 26th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

My evil plan to exclude her was exposed, so I guess that I should go ahead and post a link to the missing post, so people can at least read it! http://tigrkittn.livejournal.com/200533.html. (sorry about that)

ecosopher, you will be sorely missed! Although not really because you're on my friends-list so I still get to read your regular posts :D ♥

"cemetaria", you sly dog, you! :P I was about to get offline when I saw your post from your regular journal, and then I had to stick around to see what name you'd been playing under because I just had no idea!!! Aww man.

For the record: I enjoyed both ecosopher's and cemetaria's writing, and will miss them both...

Ditto that. Such special writers, both.

o.o I did not think I would get this far.

Sorry to see both ecosopher and cemetaria go—I've enjoyed both of their writing a lot. :(

Unbelievable. I figured both ecosopher and cemetaria for at least the Top 20, if not higher. They will be missed.

Did we have icons for making the top 100? I don't remember seeing them...

PS. Good luck to ecosopher and cemetaria with whatever else they'll be doing in real life.

I had a feeling cemetaria was an alt, but I have no idea for whom. Now I'm really curious.

Sorry to see them and ecosopher go. On the other hand...woohoo! Top 50! Congrats everyone, and good luck!
pixiebelle
Apr. 24th, 2012 02:19 am (UTC)
I guessed she was an alt too and I've been trying to guess for the longest time. I didn't even put it together when the real person said they were dropping in their real journal. It was that good!

Does that mean we are down to only two Aussie's now? mstrobel & jacq22 need to hang in there, we need an Aussie in the top 10. No, the top 2. No dammit, we need an Aussie winner!

In the sense of oddness, since I've come in from second chance, I know nothing of special powers. I'm sort of going on the belief that I don't have any, because ever since I tried that whole invisibility thing, they don't let me ride the city bus anymore.

Yo, Gary!
Out of curiosity -- does tigrkittn get a "free pass" this week because you forgot to include her in the poll?

I'm not complaining; just asking for a rule clarification.

Re: Yo, Gary!
I don't penalize people for my mistakes. So, yes, she's immune to the vote this week.
Thought so. - ellakite - Apr. 24th, 2012 03:18 am (UTC) - Expand

I am so sad to see both ecosopher and cemetaria go. cemetaria, of course you were good enough. I am still in awe of your entries. Naturally, I'm the most fond of the one in which you built gorgeous sand castles in my sandbox, but I would buy a collection of stories about the times that the world ended :D

Truly sad to see both go, intersection partner Cemetaria, and a friend since at least the beginning of this season, ecosopher. Kinda dampens the Top 50 celebration.
