Result - Week 40

We've come a long way together.

Now we are almost at the end of the road. Which means that every step forward is going to involve a huge sacrifice to get there.

We are losing another contestant this week.

But before we do, the Jury has made their final decision - saving one person and guaranteeing a spot in the Final Four for someone else. (because they are the only one left who has not previously held immunity)

It was back and forth for quite some time between the last two remaining. But then, around mid-day today, a lead opened up and held.

The Jury selected lrig_rorrim to receive immunity.

Which means, as long as suesniffsglue makes this week's deadline, she is immune! So congratulations to her as well.

Which means we only have the sad news left to deliver.

With that immunity, that means the person with the next fewest votes will be leaving us.

Goodbye to an amazing writer, someone that I'm personally really glad that I got the chance to read this season (and I know a lot of other people are as well): watching_ships

Thank you so much for everything this season - I really hope that we will see you in the Home Game, and hanging around to cheer on your favorites, as this thing comes in for a crash landing!

Oh wow! I feel like time and again, my bacon has been saved. I'm not out of this frying pan and into the fire yet, and I'm really grateful to the jury for keeping me in. (Of course, I may yet be wailing and gnashing my teeth depending on what this week brings. Heh.) Thank you!

watching_ships, I've really enjoyed your stories this season. I'm sorry to see you go, but I know you'll still be writing! Is the best place to keep up with your words your livejournal or your blog? :)

Thanks! unmowngrass kept telling me I should do this...clear back to I don't know when. I'm glad I did.

My blog is the best place to follow me. There and on Twitter @ElizabethMelle.

So sorry is leaving. I hope to read her work again in seasons to come. Getting to this point is no small accomplishment.

Congrats on creating a larger and stronger fanbase .

I liked the Paul Newman "personal hell" quote! Ha.

Because, yeah, Taylor Swift IS sort of that for me. Except that stinking "Style" song. I don't want to like it and I do.

I liked it, too! It totally made me think of you! But it wasn't loading on my screen...glad to hear it did for you, though.

Thanks, Gary!

And thanks to everyone who kept me me around. It pushed me to write things that would have never seen the light of day otherwise.

Lesson learned though. Complain about not having enough time to work on your novel and you'll lose your job and get kicked out of Idol in the span of a week ;)

On to the next thing!

It was getting down to the wire on some things that needed to be done before I go on my little book research trip/girls' weekend to Minneapolis.

Best of luck to you!

You've been one of my favorites from the very beginning, and I'm so glad I got a chance to read so much of your writing. It's been wonderful, all the way through!

Bummed to be losing watching_ships, her work is fantastic. (Will just have to follow her on Twitter instead, for the time being.)

I will miss reading Watching ships! Another author I could (in my daughter's parlance) fan girl all over.

I hope to write again with her in the future. :)
