Green Room - Week 34 - Day 7

If you love "Extreme Sports" - I hope you are following this week's poll. Because, in watching it over the past couple days and trying to project what is going to happen, I have no idea where this thing to going to end up!

Ditto for the Jury votes! Which, of course, have the potential to play spoiler to the poll and throw things into an even more chaotic state!

So, take the day off from cliff diving or alligator wrestling, or whatever it is that you do - and sit down to read some entries!! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/828189.html


Given how close it is - this would also be a good time and place to let people know which entries out there have gotten YOUR attention, and why! Who should make it into the Top 12??

You know, I have chocolate chips in this house. Time to bake some cookies for breakfast. Thanks for the fabulous idea! Also, congrats on first. ;)

Did anything remarkable happen to you this weekend?

Preparing for the supposed Nor'easter From Utter Hell, woot!

OK, not really. It's not supposed to start in earnest until tonight. They're upping the potential snowfall to 30+ inches. I'm sitting here trying not to project my anxiousness because suddenly the thought of being trapped in the house is doing weird things to my psyche.

Guess I'm not working tomorrow because if they think I'm doing to drive in that, they're nuts. I don't care if I have 4 wheel drive.

I got kicked in the pants (figuratively, not literally) by a friend to submit more stuff, and also to apply to Clarion West this year. I think if we'd been in proximity it would have been a literal kick. It's nice to have friends who will tell you when you're making up excuses and help by calling you on your bullshit. <3

Gary, I have a question about immunity. Can you receive immunity from the jury more than once? I thought you made a comment awhile back that you were eligible for one immunity from KF, and one from the jury. I assume you are eligible for Quick Fire every week since you haven't discouraged past recipients from writing a Quick Fire entry. Can you confirm? :D
Jan. 26th, 2015 04:52 pm (UTC)
You are correct.

You can only receive it once from the Jury and once from the Killing Floor.

In theory, you could receive it every single week from Quick Fire, because it's a new set of Judges every week.

This poll is craaaazy. Like, I have absolutely no clue how it's going to turn out. This is both exciting and nerve-wracking.

Because it's never too late to talk about stuff I loved!

- I really enjoyed crisp_sobriety's story this week; the structure of vignettes interposed with conversation worked super well, I think.
- fodschwazzle wrote a seriously creepy story this week.
- halfshellvenus's lighthearted look at fairytale and folklore tropes and plots was reallllly satisfying
- I can't resist a good time travel story. kickthehobbit's fits the bill.
- talon wrote something sweet and emotional that struck a nerve with me this week.

To quote the lego movie: everything is awesome. This is going to be a hard week no matter what, I think.
Jan. 26th, 2015 08:00 pm (UTC)
I have to second halfshellvenus—hers was awesome. :D

Also, thanks! :3
Jan. 26th, 2015 08:01 pm (UTC)
Oh! Thank you. I'm in good company, there. :3

I haven't been paying close attention to the poll—it's felt too close to call, the last few days. In retrospect, that seems like the wisest idea, especially seeing other people talk about it. o.o

There are a few entries that stuck out to me, tho. I really liked gratefuladdict's acid trip. I loved fodschwazzle's, tho I'm pretty sure it gave me nightmares (like, no, actually o.o ). Definitely liked yachiru's...it felt really wonderfully lyrical, and I liked talon's—it was poignant without being saccharine.

I can't call who will or won't be in the top twelve. I hope they make it, tho—especially fod! His weird little pieces have come to be one of the highlights of Idol for me. :)

The 'schwazz, has a wonderfully twisted and imaginative brain! I look forward to reading his entries every week along with everyone who is left.
Jan. 26th, 2015 11:05 pm (UTC)
I just wanted everyone to know I read your work, even if I haven't left my usual comment or acknowledgement I have given it a peruse.

Things are hectic right now, my MIL took a bad spill and is in rehab, we're trying to get her affairs settled. If you want to know more, or care to friend my alt. It's madmusings3 (This way my hubs can't read and I can vent, and boy, canI vent!)
