Results - Week 24

Immunity came into play this week, meaning that kathrynrose is safe. So if you didn't know that (and she mentioned it in her entry, so if you didn't know it, you didn't read it - and you missed out!!)

Which unfortunately means there is someone else going. It would be unfortunate regardless of who it was. But it's also the way of our world.

I was starting to think that this mini-season was going to be a replay of Season 9. But apparently the voters had something else in mind.

Goodbye to bleodswean

Thank you so much for everything you have brought to the table this mini-season, and to Idol in general.

I hope that we will continue seeing you for the Home Game (although there's not much of that left) and for the special celebration coming up!

THANK YOU, Idolars, and THANK YOU, Gary!

I love this “game”! I have had a fantastic time playing this mini-season, both in the writing and the reading. I wrote over 40,000 words during the mini-season and really cemented where and how I want to take my modern dress Hades/Persephone into a novella-length story! I can’t thank you enough for the concrit and feedback you gave on those experimental writings. I appreciate it! therealljidol truly offers a fertile ground for writers to plant their ideas and try out new approaches. Idol readers are some of the best readers I’ve ever known! The Real LJ Idol is a challenge but it also is a gift.

Idol writers! Thank you for bringing your A Games! I have spent countless hours in reader-ly enjoyment of so many wonderful entries!

It has been a pleasure and an honour. I wish all of you the very best, until we meet again. Keep writing!

I've always said that every person can "win" Idol if they get out of it what they are hoping for. Congrats and well played. :)

You're very welcome.

"The Real LJ Idol is a challenge but it also is a gift." That needs to be on some promotions for next season. :)

You wrote some amazing things this season, and sharing a poll with you really pushed me to work harder and harder every week. Your petrichor entry in particular will stay with me a long time.

Thank you for all you bring to the game!!!

Thank you for everything you give to this wonderful game. Not just the writing which has been so rich and beautiful, but the generosity of spirit and kindness, especially for newbs like me. Oh! And me! You brought me here, too! Thank You!

Very sad to see you go. Your works have been awesome and wonderfully lyrical and reading them has been inspirational. And if I haven't mentioned before ;) I'm really looking forward to the Hades/Persephone novella.

Thank you, hon!! There is no question AT ALL that Idol is responsible for me finding the direction I need to take my story. What a great benefit is that?!

I am so late doing this - I took the weekend off from the Internet.

I have enjoyed your writing so much this entire season. I know this isn't your first year in LJI, but its the first time I've gotten to encounter your work and it was a total pleasure. I look forward to your pieces every week.

I also very much appreciate that you've been one of the most active people in the comments of the entries. Your replies have been engaging, well thought through and often thought-provoking. I can't thank you enough for that.

Congratulations on a terrific body of work and I look forward to hearing more about your Hades/Persephone story!

Thank you for such a sincere and delightful goodbye. I appreciate it muchly!

Idol offers so many things to the players, but getting to know the amazing people behind the words is one of the best parts! I am so happy we got to "know" one another a little through this crazy game and I hope to see your Joey LJ begin casual updating.

Be well and good luck! To the best writer may the spoils go!

*kicks you*

It doesn't matter how many times immunity is played, there's always someone who thinks "Oh, no one is leaving!" I figured I'd head that off!

I am so sad to see bleodswean leave Idol this week, but what a fantastic game she played! FABULOUS writing, an exemplary player, kind and generous to all, I loved not only reading her entries, but her comments on other writers' entries and her responses to comments on her own entries. I learned SO much!

I am so fortunate because as a friend I can go on reading bleodswean's wonderful work. I owe this wonderful woman so so very much not the least of which was her introduction to therealljidol. Her love of this game is contagious! Thank you!
