Results - Week 25 and Last Chance Week 4

The polls ended together, so I thought it fitting for the fates to be announced together as well.

I'll handle the main competition first. After all - Last Chance Idol has good news attached as well, and always end on the good news when you can.

The main competition is losing 2 contestants from the Redemption Tribe, one was a sacrifice: belgatherial and the other is leaving us by *a single* vote: ryl

Votes were extremely tight this week, and have every sign of continuing to be that way. At this point, any loss is going to be a painful one.

From the main tribe, we were supposed to lose 3 but there was a tie for that final spot - sending them to fill out the ranks of Redemption next week. (and continuing that tribe's existence)

Which means that the 2 people leaving us are two old and dear friends of Idol impoetry and sarcasmoqueen

Last Chance Idol is a little different, because it is not only losing people - there is the opportunity to gain some as well, as they earn the right to take their place in the ranks of the main competition for Week 26.

There are 4 who have the chance to move up, and 6 who are (hopefully) joining the Home Game.

Those leaving us this week are: kehlen_crow, kfp_rawr kristalsawesome, the_dark_snack, vik_thor and xlovebecomesher

For all of you leaving - thank you so much for everything this season. Eventually, we are going to get down to 1 person, so it's the same fate that is in store for everyone but that person - and one met by 200 or so folks before now. You have made it a long, long way and I hope you are extremely proud, because you should be. (Heck, even the people who were eliminated in Last Chance - you had an uphill battle and still came out swinging. That takes a great deal of something really special - especially to have made it to almost the very end of LCI)

I hope that we haven't seen the last of you and that you will be Home Gaming the topics and continuing to show up to chat, and cheer on your favorites!

Now the good news - because we really need some of that. We have four contestants eligible to join the main competition. They have 24 hours from now to let me know if they will be "moving up" or staying where they are one more week.

The people with that choice? crackpotpie, ellakite, meridian_rose and uncawes

Congratulations to you - and let me know your decision at clauderainsrm@gmail.com

It was a good ride!

I'm not going to quit writing my story. As I've mentioned before, these characters have taken up permanent residence in my brain and want more stories. And now I have time to do it. Time to get to outlinin'! Actually, time to go to bed. I have to get up at Ungodly O'Clock tomorrow morning.

Every week nowadays I'm losing a favorite. :{ I liked everything in LCI this round, too, that was tough.

Well, the voters have spoken...
Gary, it's very kind of you to give me the option to stay in Last Chance Idol... but let's face it: from the voting, the readers clearly don't want me there anymore. So I guess it's time for me to say goodbye to LCI.

I would just like to say to all the other LastChanceIdolers that it's been an honor for me to work with you all. It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I wrote my first piece for LCI. Goodness, how time flies...

No tears, please. It's time for me to go. And you could kind-of say that I've gone off to a better place. And believe me when I tell you that I will forever treasure the memories of my time in Last Chance Idol.

Best of luck to the remaining members of LCI. Really.

i'm not gonna cry... i'm not gonna cry... i lie like a dog... i'm not gonna cry...

Aw, so sorry to see every one of these people go!

So apparently reckless_blues and sorchawench are the ones tied and joining us in he doomed tribe :-) this week.

(I was one of those in both competitions, and now finally I'm just in the one. Phew.)

That surprises me! I was just going to check to poll, because I was certain I would have been one of the new redemption tribe members.

I want to let everyone know how much kfp_rawr has appreciated the positive feedback on his writing. I'm going to keep him doing the home game, because he's been responding so positively to this experience. Lately, he tells me that he either wants to be a writer, a structural engineer or a clown, and I think his experiences this season with LJI have been a part of that!

Well huh. Guess I should check the polls more often! Thank you all for having me. I went out early in the season because I didn't write anything. Depression and anxiety got the better of me.

I'm glad I've turned a corner, made it through LCI, back into the game, and at least went out with something I'm glad to have written.

Best of luck to all!

I hope those leaving may still play in the home game!

And congrats to all who are advancing, yay!!

Congrats to those advancing to The Main Game!
»waves« to the others leaving.

I am truthfully not surprised at all that this was my week leaving. But I will try to stay in the home game. (But, I said that the last time I was playing… so we shall see.)
I do want to keep active again here on LJ. I dropped mostly off for quite awhile, lured by the FB for much of it. I enjoy the feeling here on LJ much more. (After all, something like LJIdol wouldn't even really be possible on FB.)

LJI - again
So, it looks like I'm having a third crack at the brass ring.
I was tossing up whether to take the shot, but fanclub posts from
lapis_lazuli615 and eternal_ot made it not a tough choice in the end. Thanks :)
Hope I can be worthy of your support for a few weeks at least.

To everyone who got voted off this week, please keep writing. Like Gary said, you got a long way. Don't stop now.
To crackpotpie, ellakite, and meridian_rose, best of luck. Not that you'll need it - you all rock :)

Re: LJI - again
Thank you, and best of luck to you too :) I also decided to take the shot, but I am pretty nervous about it!
