Results - Week 8

Last week was brutal, and this week continues that trend, with some unexpected results.

Close votes and unexpected results - that's what Friends and Rivals is made of!

In this case, 1 vote separated staying and going, and about .75 between the teams! That's damn close.

We are losing:

Team Late to the Party's idekmybffjill
and
Team Norbert's ellakite

From the Rivals, it was

leni_ba

and a tie between aresrising05 and tijuanagringo which will send them into a Tie-Breaker head-to-head Death Match next week!

There will be another chance to get into the competition coming up relatively soon, so I hope everyone sticks around and plays the Home Game until that window opens up - and then goes full speed into the fray to fight for their second chance!

Didn't feel like signing in under idekmybffjill...
I'm actually really glad I went out this week. I love Idol and I love playing under an alt and it's always interesting to see how long I can keep me secret (answer: I can't. It's impossible. I'm sorry. xD).

I also love (and I'm being sincere) that I went out on a piece that reminded me of why I want to write, in the first place. I've been in a weird place where writing is (mostly, partially -- I can't be sure anymore) very much a slog even though I do it every day and average something around 1300-1400 words a day, even while holding down a part-to-full time job and maintaining my household and watching my child.

If I decide to jump back into the game, I'll be playing fully as me and I'll listen to my heart more than my head. Because that's what happened this week and it resulted in a piece I'm incredibly fucking proud of and couldn't be happier with, even if it cost me my position in the game.

Thank you everyone who've voted for me and commented on my entries. <3 You guys are the best.

I do hope you homegame.

And it's fantastic to hear how upbeat you are. Ending on a personal high note has got to be the better way to end. So that's great!

SCENOD!
I'M DEAD TO EVERYBODY!

Eh... I saw this one coming. My piece this week wasn't "lame", but I just didn't have the time to polish it the way I would have liked. C'est la vie.

Well, folks, it's been fun. I'll see if I can "Home Game" it, but I know my life will be getting busy in the next few weeks, so perhaps this is for the best.

It's been an honor, folks. Take care.

Not dead. Hibernating. For a little while. But not dead.

Re: SCENOD!
I hope you'll undead yourself and home game a bit, when you can. I also hope the upcoming busy-ness is of the good kind, too, but either way... this will cut down on the stress.

I'm sad mostly because I didn't get s chance to vote this week, because real life, and all these names and the close vote ...

On the other hand welcome to Team Home Game! It's not official, but anyone who is home gaming it I am up for messaging/brainstorming how we'll take over the world, um, get back into the game

My heart is heavy. I have been sitting here trying to figure out why I am so so sad, and then it came to me like a fist to the gut.

I am not just losing new friends idekmybffjill, ellakite and my very dear, long-time friend leni_ba this week, and either aresrising05 or tijuanagringo next week, but I am losing my teachers. I am losing players who have been inspiring me and encouraging me, and my heart is sinking.

Please, please play the home game from time to time, because I will miss you, and I do read the home gamers entries, and I will be looking for you. :-(

I am so glad I got to play with all of you.

OUCH :(

theun4giveables and I had talked about this, and god yes, she was so damn happy with what she wrote this week and said she probably was going to go out on it (despite my saying "You don't know that!") I get it. She wrote from the heart about characters she fiercely cares about. Am I disappointed? Given that we're now down two people, yeah. Am I upset? No. She knows I love her <3

...speaking of which, Gary, now that Team Late To The Party is now down to 3 members, does that mean I can recruit for more or do we disband or...?

(I swear we don't bite!)

You can recruit more. If you lose one more though you are disbanded.

I just went to the FAQ to make sure that was right: "If your team drops below 3 members, it is dissolved and all members become individuals for at least one round. "
