Good morning and welcome the LAST Day to vote!http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/969972.html

So make sure to get out there and support your favorites!

What massive conspiracy is distracting you from the *truly important* things you should be concentrating on today?

The axe has fallen once again - and again, it was really close.

A single vote separated people from going and it being a 6-way tie.

Two votes? That could have created a 7 way tie. (or a 10 way if those 1 vote up also received a vote)

Anyway, what I'm trying to get across here is that *every single vote matters*. If you haven't picked up on that yet, now is a good of time as any to learn that lesson!

As is... we have two people being eliminated, and it's a 3 WAY tie! (AKA, that axe fell *most* of the way, but not *all* the way)

What this means is it's another Sudden Death Write-Off between

It's an Open Topic. Which means you can literally write anything you want. Bring it!

2 of you will be eliminated, and 1 will move forward to Week 6.

I'll be posting a thread below for you to link at. The deadline to link your entries back to that thread is tomorrow. Thursday, Jan 19th at 10pm EST

Have fun!

I invited a Mentor this week, and then I completely forgot to remind her.

She *is* coming - in Part 2 of the Work Room.

For Part 1, I'll remind you that there is a Sudden Death Write-Off: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/970905.html

and that the new topic is posted: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/971359.html

I will also let you know about some exciting news in the Idol-verse.

Friend of Idol Jason Franks SixSmiths was picked up by Caliber Comics and they have reissued the first volume: The Sixsmiths - Volume 1

"The Sixsmiths are a family of suburban Satanists who've fallen prey to the global recession. Now their life is in turmoil: the father Ralf needs to find a new job; the twins, Cain and Lilith, need to survive the horrors of the public school system; and wife Annie needs to keep them all sane and under budget. Meanwhile, their estranged elder daughter Jezabelle is having her own crisis of faith. Will the Devil rise to smite their enemies, or will he damn them with hellfire, wrath and underwater mortgage payment? Collects issues 1-4. A light hearted comedy satire for adults. Its The Simpsons meets The Osbournes. "


and closer to home, our own [livejournal.com profile] fourzoas now has an excuse that she byed-out in Week 5. She had work in this book that was just released

Rhetorics of Whiteness: Postracial Hauntings in Popular Culture, Social Media, and Education

"With the election of our first black president, many Americans began to argue that we had finally ended racism, claiming that we now live in a postracial era. Yet near-daily news reports regularly invoke white as a demographic category and recount instances of racialized violence as well as an increased sensitivity to expressions of racial unrest. Clearly, American society isn’t as color-blind as people would like to believe. In Rhetorics of Whiteness: Postracial Hauntings in Popular Culture, Social Media, and Education, contributors reveal how identifications with racialized whiteness continue to manifest themselves in American culture."

One of the things that I've loved seeing, over the years, is Idol writers (and "Idol-adjacent" in the case of Jason) putting their work out there!

So please, go and support your fellow Idol writers in this, and anything else that we have in the Idol store! http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20 (and if there is something I've forgotten, or you want to see added - of your own, an Idol-adjacent friend, or just something you really love and you think other people should check it out too). Be sure to mention it to me!

While we are waiting for the Mentor post though, first thoughts on the topic?

(and don't forget, those of you who are Patrons, you have the chance to *send me topics to use this season*. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027 )

Things have been going pretty well so far.

Everyone gets along, and peace reigns throughout the land.

But sooner or later - you know it's coming.

There is going to be a

Heel turn

and that will be this week's topic! :)

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Monday, Jan 23rd at 7pm EST
The deadline has been extended due to LJ issues: the new deadline is Tuesday, Jan 24th at 7pm EST

Have fun!
