Results - Week 17

It doesn't get any easier - week after week, saying goodbye. But this is one of those weeks where it sucks just a little bit more.

Because, I'm not going to lie - and even if I did, anyone with a knowledge of the history of Idol knows that I'm a fan of the work of alexpgp"- and unfortunately, this week, he is leaving us. Given that he wrote a serial for 17 weeks, in a mini-season where the refrain seemed to be "don't write serials" is just one more thing to put in the "why I like this guy" column.

It wasn't one vote this time, it was by two. He is leaving with someone who is quickly becoming a favorite as well: murielle. She went quite a ways into the game the first time, and then fought her way back in through Second Chance and stayed for another month! (that's pretty damn impressive - it not only shows how talented she is, but a love for the game itself)

I'm really hoping that we get to read more from both of them in the Home Game!

I had a good run. Learned some stuff.

Thanks to you, Gary, and to my teammates and rivals.

Cheers...

Well, drat. Both very talented writers and I've really been getting into the serial. Sorry to see both of you out.

I will keep reading the serial if you keep writing it Alexpgp.

"I will keep reading the serial if you keep writing it Alexpgp."

Me too!

How can we get you to keep sharing your wonderful novel, alexpgp?

As much as I hate that alexpgp is leaving the competition this week, because I have looked forward to every chapter in the ongoing tale of Feather and Usha, I feel honoured to be going out with such a fantastic writer.

I cannot begin to tell you how much this journey has meant to me. When I started out with you all I honestly didn't think I would last more than a week or two--the reality is absolutely astounding. I have enjoyed every single second, and it is largely due to the wonderful generous writers/players/people in lj_idol. You are seriously awesome! And I am going to be reading your work as long as you're sharing it. I also hope to be homegaming, so I will still be around.

Gary you are the king of awesomeness! Thank you for your endless patience in answering all of my questions, and never once calling me an asshat. :-) You totally rock!

I will miss both of these writers! Murielle, I enjoy your comments and the conversations we've had around them Alex, I'm always amazed by the creativity that has kept Feather interestiing and fresh each week.

I hope you continue to home game so we can continue to enjoy your work.

Fearsome fighters, the both of you. Sorry the proverbial bucket happened to be right in the middle of the walkway. Don't know who put that there.

Thank you! You have become a writing hero to me, and your kindness and encouragement has meant so much. :-)

I will miss both of them so much -- I was a big fan of their entries. I will especially miss murielle's icon, so I hope she will continue to grace us with her presence.

Both alexpgp and murielle are such talented writers, and and I'm sorry to see you go.

You've both enriched my LJ life outside of Idol, and I'm especially glad murielle came in this round because such a sweet personality is one I would hate to have missed getting acquainted with!

Oh, thank you! The entire experience has been pure joy. I feel I really got to take part fully, and I couldn't be more delighted and grateful. Getting to know you all, and to read your wonderful work is the ultimate win for me.

Sad to see two of my favourites leaving.

I've marveled at how succinctly alexpgp has been able to keep his serial within the parameters of the variety of prompts!

And my long-time friend murielle who jumped in with both feet and wrote and wrote and wrote. AND read! She read every entry every week and commented. A huge shout out for her sincerity and a HUG.

Bless you! It has been such wonderful experience, and I really have you to thank for it. Your encouragement to enter, and all along the way has been vitally important to me. Especially as you are such a fantastic writer yourself. Thank you SO much! :-)
