Results - Week 25

There were a few minutes, around 8:30, that I had no idea what I was going to be saying tonight.

I thought I knew, coming into today, but there was a strong surge that made me wonder.

That said, the results are in and the final two are set.

But before we get there, we have to say goodbye to two awesome people, who are also talented writers.

One is a veteran and the other is the last remaining newbie.

Newbies have never won a mini-season (in contrast to the regular seasons, where a veteran has only won 2 of 9!) so there were definitely times I wondered if orockthro was going to be the one to break that curse. She wasn't, but she sure gave it a damn good run, and was the last remaining Avocado standing!

The other Avocado is also leaving, having come further than she has ever been in a season, mini-season or anything (she also did really well in Exhibit B) . There was *a lot* of buzz that she could be the winner. Who knows what would have happened if RL had not sideswiped her.

She is kathrynrose and she too is leaving us. (*kicks her on the way out*)

Thanks to both of you for your time and dedication - but most of us, for giving us weeks of awesome things to read!

I hope we will continue to see you in the "10th anniversary celebration" and of course when Season 10 kicks off later this year!

I know I say this every week, but it's true every week. I am so sad to see orockthro and kathrynrose go, especially this late in the mini season, but that said, I congratulate both for making it to the semi final week! Both writers have touched my heart, and entertained me throughout this game and I have enjoyed and looked forward to reading their entries each week. As I said before, orockthro's entry this week was wonderful and as well as being sad to see her go, I am also surprised. I hope to read more from these wonderful writers in future Idol seasons.

And now to our finalists: gratefuladdict and prog_schlock, congratulations! But really guys! How am I ever going to choose between you? You are both such durngude writers. Each week you have taken me on the most wonderful journeys out of my little world, lifted my spirit, and enlightened me--all I could ever hope for from a writer. gratefuladdict has moved me to tears so many times and prog_schlock has made me laugh and widened my musical horizons. So seriously, how am I ever going to choose one of you?

Best wishes to each of you...can't wait to read your final entries!

You are so sweet!! Thank you for being such a wonderful and supportive reader and writer to everyone throughout this season! I always look forward to hearing your thoughts on my entries. :)

Aw, thank you! I honestly do not have the words to say how much this Idol experience has meant to me. I came into it hoping I would grow as a writer, and looking forward to reading as much as I could of other's entries. What I didn't expect was how much I would love reading everyone's writing and watching you all grow.

I have only one regret. And that is that we couldn't convince Gary to sell byes. What about a bye auction every now and then? Limbs for byes? Rumplestiltskinian deals for byes?..Sorry, I'm okay now. Minor lapse. 😁
