Results - Week 35

Saying "I'm shocked" by the results today is one of those double-edged thing. After all - if you say "I wasn't expecting so-and-so to go" means you were expecting someone else!

I think we've covered that pretty well in the past.

But hopefully you will bear with me, and not think that I'm saying anything about anyone else, when I say that I was shocked when I hit "close poll", because I had no idea where things were going to land with that final refresh!

There was a point when it could have been just about any combination of names that I announced were going home tonight, and I think that says a lot about the people left in this competition.

We have two immunities that had a huge impact on this week. The first was from the Quick Fire, which went to kickthehobbit. But everyone knew she was safe. So the vote totals reflected that.

The other - well, we'll get to that in a bit.

Leaving us from the Redemption Tribe is the Co-Winner of Exhibit B (and quite frankly the person I thought was going to be a strong contender to win Spirit of LJ Idol for Season 9) lrig_rorrim

From the main tribe, we have another person who had their name bandied about not long ago for "one of the best shots to win" yachiru

Two completely amazing writers, who will definitely be missed - and who I hope will continue on with the Home Game and serving on the Jury that will decide immunity in these crucial final few weeks!

Speaking of the Jury vote - I mentioned that things were tight. What I *didn't* say is that at one point it was a 4-way tie for immunity.

When those final votes of the night came in - it was a 3-way tie.

Being a tie, my first instinct was "OK - do any of them *actually need it*?"

The answer was YES.

talon was vulnerable and thus receives immunity.

So the *next* person would be eliminated... except that fodschwazzle was ALSO in that 3-way tie - and I'm not going to give one person, who was tied, immunity, and put one of the others on the chopping block. So he ALSO receives immunity!

Nor will I eliminate anyone else for what the Jury clearly had a difficult time deciding on. (and even if I did, the next level up is also a tie!)

We have a Top 11.

Welllllll that happened. Heh. Super congratulations to the top 11!

I've had a marvelously good time and had a hell of a lot of fun playing this season, meeting everyone, and writing like crazy. I am sorry I didn't get to leaving comments for folks this week on their entries - I'll get to them tomorrow, most likely, when I actually have some time (there was both a lot of snow shoveling today, and a lot of being away from my computer in general). I'll be sticking around. I really want to see how this all goes!

I was so hoping the Jury would give you immunity, and I'm sorry they didn't.

I've loved your entries this season, and always adore your unique approach to the prompts. I think you could probably sell much of what you've written for Idol, and most of us really could not make that claim.

Not how I thought this was going to turn out. :( *hugs*

Your writing is imaginative and wonderfully penned. Nice, complete pieces every week! And your presence in the GR is always so upbeat and positive and truly smile-worthy!

You are one of my perennial favorites. The minute you put out a book, I will snatch it up!

This was a difficult poll to watch. :( Both of these writers have strong and unique voices. I have enjoyed every single entry they've posted.

Wish everyone still in the very best.

I hope you'll try to publish some of the things you've written, and if for any reason you write another story like Judas and Jesus on a road-trip, it will be here where all of us will know!
