Yes, I've closed the polls.
I've thought about since I've heard the news, and with Gabriel Garcia Marquez dying today, we need all the writers we can get.
There will be no eliminations today.
The people who sacrificed this week were: linzbnl, kecharasmoon and x_disturbed_x. A newbie, an old friend with a new face and a fan favorite. Those are losses as well.
The rest of you have been spared this week.
Go forth and create something magical. Create something full of joy.
If you are not familiar with the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, use this opportunity to go forth and become familiar with it.
