Results - Week 12

We just had ourselves a good ole fashioned Idol barn burner!!!

Unfortunately, two fell behind early on and never did get the attention that they deserved. Those last two spots though, those were hard fought. I wasn’t sure who was actually going to go until the final minute or so, and even then, I wasn’t sure what would happen until I hit “close poll”. Idol is better than hooking yourself up to jumper cables!

That said, there is some sad business to attend to - saying goodbye to

roina_arwen

All of whom had fantastic runs this mini-season, and I hope we will continue to see them in the Home Game.

Also, they are eligible to select something from the Community Chest! So it’s not all that bad!

Hope you stick around to see how the End Game is going to play out!

The deeper we get into the season, the harder eliminations are, but I'm particularly sorry to see roina_arwen go.

Up until today, I thought I might squeak by. I tried everything to get a few more votes, but alas it didn't help. Oh well! Thank you for your kind words, tho.

Thank you. I'll still be around, of course.

Wall, meet writing. Writing, meet wall.

I saw it coming. I has a sad, but thank you for being there and for your support this week!

I loved it -- and voted for it -- if it makes any difference to you.

You're welcome. Mind if I friend you? I'd love to keep up with what you're writing.

I wanna thank everyone who did vote for my alt, and those who tried to give my entry some extra attention this week. :) You guys are awesome.

I'm sad that I didn't make it to the Top 10, but it's a fierce bunch here and that's the way the cookie crumbles. :) I may or may not be home-gaming. I've got that erotica gig I'm playing around with that needs my full attention. ;) But I'll stick around for the rest of the competition to read and vote, definitely. :D

It's...going. I started a new short today that's based off of something else I wrote not that long ago. Except it's requiring a complete rewrite as opposed to salvaging what I can. But I wrote 1000 words of it, and will hopefully get another 1000 done tomorrow. :)

But hey! You're still in. :) So that's good. I'll just hang around and increase my skills for season 9. ;)

This week was sort of guaranteed to be a brutal nailbiter, I think. As I was reading the entries, I kept waiting to get to the inevitable weak posts, dropped balls, etc., and...it just never happened. There was a shitload of A Game afoot this round, and we definitely lost some heavy hitters.

I know it was ultimately between the two of us, but roina_arwen has been my friend for years and I hold her in very high regard, so I tip my hat off to her especially ... and the excellent writers she takes with her this week.

Aww, thank you!

I just realised that the way I worded my reply could be read that I don't think you're an excellent writer ... which is not the case. Sorry, it's really late here!

No worries, I understood what you meant!

There really were no weak entries at all, and sending anyone home at this point is like a punch to the gut. That was just a really close poll across the board.

The universe is determined not to let me have pretty round numbers! First I get ousted last full season with 99 weeks of play under my belt, denying me the 100 Week mark, and now I get ousted in 11th place, denying me the Top Ten.

It was fun while it lasted and I might HG if inspired to do so, but at least I went out on a piece that I'm proud of.

Hugs to all and congrats to the Top 10 - I will still be around making bad puns and haunting the GR.

PS:
Okay, I have to ask -

Who the hell submitted "That's What She Said" as a topic?!
