There comes a point where it’s not longer apt to say that it “got real”. Because it was always real. And, if somehow it wasn’t, it would have become real long before now.
But this is a big week though. I think we can say that without any hesitation. Well, you can. I would probably have quite a bit hesitation if I were saying it! Thankfully though, I’m writing it. Which means that it will come out fluently!
We do have some business to handle. Both mc_lji and talon have succumb to the evil powers of the LJ Sisterhood, dropping from the ranks of the main competition into the thankless dregs of Second Chance Idol, never to be heard from again. Unless of course, you happen to check out that poll. In which case, there’s a chance you will see them!
Which means of course our 20 remaining contestants have now become 18, and 8 more contestants will be joining them when this poll closes!!
That’s taking out half of the field in one vote! So you had better make sure to get out and support your favorites by reading, commenting, voting - and telling others to do the same!
The poll will close Monday, March 11th at 10pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
A few words from clauderainsrm:
We have some bad news in Second Chance Idol as well. I mean other than being the unforgiving dregs, which you already knew.
Two people missed the deadline: alien_writings and everywordiwrite. Two incredible writers, who will very much be missed.
There was also one person who emailed me to let me know that she was dropping out that I wanted to single-out in a mention: turnerwolf. I wanted to make sure to acknowledge her, not only as a talented newbie but also as someone that I hope will stick around as part of the Idol family. After all, once you are in, you’re in. :)
I was nervous that her entries weren’t going to get read, due to the font size and color scheme on her LJ. That sort of thing can definitely turn off some readers. But once she fixed those things, it felt like people were finally starting to see what I had noticed right off. It’s sad to see her go, but hopefully it’s a “see you later!” situation.
Anyway, before I get too sappy - there are still eliminations to handle. You look at the numbers, and it’s pretty easy to figure out how many are leaving us this time around... that’s right 10!
The poll closes Monday, March 11th at 10pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
