Results - Week 1

One vote in Tribe 1.
Two votes in Tribe 2.

That is how close it was between who was staying and who was leaving. It's why it is important to make sure you cast a vote every week to keep your favorites in the running.

This week we are losing two veterans, and two friends of Idol. One has been around for awhile and the other coming back after a long absence:


Thank you so much to both of you for coming out this season. I hope we will continue to see you around!

The one piece of good news? There *will* be a Second Chance later this season. So please Home Game, and be on the look out for your shot to get back into the fray!

So sad to see you go grail76 and worldofcraimar. I hope you will home game and take advantage of Second Chance. In other words, don't go!

Am sorry to see both grail76 and worldofcraimer go. I'd hoped to see more of worldofcraimer's work, since I hadn't read much of it before. Grail--at least I'll see your wonderful posts on my flist! Hugs to you both!

This first week was tough because there are so many entries to read, and I really wanted to try to say something responsive to each writer, but also the fact that there were so many byes! In a way good because less to read, but in a way scary because you had to make sure you had something happening in your piece to protect yourself... I mean 25 byes in Tribe 2?!

It was an odd week anyhow with Thanksgiving and all. But some really strong, great, curious and wonderful entries throughout. Congratulations to those that survived... the challenge is on!

That's seriously a lot. O...O I'm new to this game (I joined mid-game last season and this is my first full season) so I suppose I don't know all the nuances or what tends to happen, but 25 byes in a single week seems like a lot even for someone without a lot of experience in how these things go!
Nov. 30th, 2016 12:37 pm (UTC)
The truth is that nobody knows all of the nuances! Things can change in a snap. Or you'll get a prompt that you don't have a handle on, or you'll realize you have a three hour block of time set aside to write and that'll evaporate somehow, leaving you twenty minutes to create some sort of brilliance.

I'm guessing that people just either didn't know the deadline was up or that they just missed it meaning that most of the byes were "unintentional." Still, When you only get two, you hoard and covet those byes!

That's part of the reason why Gary describes this as "a writing rollercoaster with iffy brakes!"

I've had the week from hell. WEEKS from hell. I was fortunate to write my entry in basically one sitting, minimal editing, and then my world crashed around me. I didn't read any entries... I barely read the comments on my own page ... I didn't vote. I apologize to my fellow idolers and profusely thank the 24 who voted for my little piece ... and hopefully life will leave me alone long enough to do better this "week."

I hate that we ever lose ANYBODY even when it's so many folks I never find time to read anything till sometimes after voting is said and done. and then I try and comment and become a blank... but that is LJ idol and trying to enjoy it while creating for it.

"I hate that we ever lose ANYBODY..."

I second that emotion!

This was such a tough week. There was so much to read but I'm glad there's a Second Chance this season. That opportunity to hear again from people is awesome. Sorry to lose Grail76 and WorldOfCraimar go. Although I don't know either of you well, Craimar admittedly even less than Grail, I appreciated your entries and I hope we can see you again.
Nov. 30th, 2016 07:35 am (UTC)
Hoping to see you both around and try for Second chance again.
Nov. 30th, 2016 11:46 am (UTC)
Sorry to see you guys go :(
Nov. 30th, 2016 02:17 pm (UTC)
Two good writers down. I know it's the whole point of the game but I hate this part. Sharing a piece of yourself takes a scary-brave leap of faith. Thank you both for putting yourselves out there.
Nov. 30th, 2016 02:43 pm (UTC)
The first week is so hard! Thank you both for playing. It's obviously going to be a hell of a game. :/
Nov. 30th, 2016 03:41 pm (UTC)
Sorry to see you both go. I hope to still see you reading, commenting and voting!
Nov. 30th, 2016 04:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you for giving us your words. <3
Nov. 30th, 2016 04:48 pm (UTC)
I hope you both Home Game!
Nov. 30th, 2016 04:54 pm (UTC)
Awww, this is the sucky part... I hope you stay around for Second Chance! :)
Nov. 30th, 2016 05:15 pm (UTC)
Awww, I hope to see you both in the Home Game and in the 2nd Chance idol! :)
Nov. 30th, 2016 06:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks to all who wrote. I really enjoyed reading so many different entries and people's different takes on the prompt. I was sure I would be the first to go! I think it can happen to anyone, so to those first two -- I hope you don't take it too hard!
Nov. 30th, 2016 08:06 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry to see grail76 and worldofcraimar go, and I'd really hoped to see more of craimar's world and what exactly was going on there. Fookin' disappointed. :(
Nov. 30th, 2016 08:16 pm (UTC)
Sorry to see anyone go. It was definitely a tough week.
Nov. 30th, 2016 09:49 pm (UTC)
Sad to see y'all go, but I hope you do stick around for home game!
Nov. 30th, 2016 10:08 pm (UTC)
I want to say good bye, but I feel awkward doing it! Umm... Good bye! I wish I could read more of both of your writing!
Dec. 1st, 2016 01:04 am (UTC)
Sorry to lose both of you so soon! I hope you keep reading and playing the home game.
Dec. 1st, 2016 01:57 pm (UTC)
Farewell friends-to-be. I am looking forward to the "second chance." I hope anyone who we have to say farewell to sticks around to read and comment (I know I plan to).
