The Summer continues to take it’s toll, like a long walk through the Red Waste. The topics took their own toll, with some rising to the challenge while driving others insane. Well, more insane than they already were... which many doubted was possible!
Somehow though, most people did make it across to the Promised Land of the poll. “Most”, but not all. bringing_words, emileonus and myrna_bird notified me that real life was taking them out.
While the elements got to annaonthemoon, barrelofrain, bewize, cacophonesque, i_id, jennickels and sweeny_todd
forcing them to collapse in a heap within sight of their goal.
They will most definitely be missed, and I hope whenever the heat stroke wears off, that they will be able to continue to Home Game, as well as supporting their favorites in the entries, and hanging out in the Green Room!
As for those who got here - first off, congratulations. Second off, welcome to your new tribes!
How were they decided? You did it yourselves, when I told you to declare your topics last week. The tribes have been broken down by what you posted on Week 4. The only exception to that was the two people who decided to write *all* of the topics, and I’ll admit, I was tempted to put them in a tribe by themselves to watch them fight it out. But instead, I put them on the two tribes with the fewest amount of members, to help balance things out a little. Of course, that was *before* the drops... so it didn’t work out quite as well as I’d hoped. Apparently choosing certain topics in Week 4 made one more likely to drop in Week 5!
We will be losing one from each tribe. So, on top of those who “self-eliminated”, we will be losing four more contestants. That should satisfy some of the more bloodthristy members of your ranks! ;) At least for a moment or two!
The polls will close Thursday, June 20th at 9pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
