It's the last topic of Second Chance Idol!

Half the remaining contestants will be joining the Home Game, and the other half will emerge to fight another day in the ranks of the main competition!

The final topic is

Open Topic

For those unfamiliar, and open topic means you can literally write anything you want. YOU decide. Bring your A-game though, because this is the "most important" week of Second Chance, the final one.

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Sunday, April 2nd at 8pm EDT

It's Week 3 of Second Chance, as the field is narrowing and the time to get into the main competition is getting closer.

There's only one way to get to that point though, and it's the same path as this particular topic:


Getting to Carnegie Hall

There are some special times in life, ones that you want to capture forever.

Some of them come every day, but you don't always realize it.

Take time to enjoy those moments.

Especially this week's topic:

The Blue Hour

Good evening!

The Second Chance Idol sign-up sheet is "officially closed", but I have decided to unofficially still accept people until the Week 1 deadline. Mostly because I forgot to give one piece of crucial information, something that no one actually asked me, which is why I forgot to say it.

Unlike previous years, this Second Chance is *just the people who sign up*. If you are eliminated from the main competition, you *are eliminated* and will (hopefully) join the ranks of the Home Game.

It's going to be a pre-determined amount of weeks, and whoever is left standing at the end of it will join the main competition. No revolving door. No strategic decisions on if to advance or not into the main competition during the course of it. No byes. Just a short fight, followed by joining the long struggle.

With that in mind, if people want to sign up http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/981280.html we will continue to accept them until the deadline for the Topic 1 entry, listed below.

***

As for the topic itself, there really could have been only one choice for this. To me at any rate.

This is your shot at a comeback. This is your shot at redemption.

Which is why your topic is

Not Throwing Away My Shot

Post the links to your entries (and only those, comments should go to the daily Green Room or the Work Room http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/985477.html) in this thread.

The deadline to link your entries here is Monday, March 6th at 7pm EST!

Have fun!

Again, the timing of this week's topic is pretty much perfect.

I selected it for Week 10 a few weeks ago, and then today, I'm out living it! Or, at least one of the meanings...

You want to know what it is? What is this week's topic?

Take a hike !

You have until Thursday, March 2nd at 8pm EST to link your entries back to this post.

Have fun!

It's funny, because when I added this topic to the list for this season, I had no idea that I would be getting married.

It's appropriate to have it this week, because it was such a big part of our "courtship".

What is it?

Why, the "Trolley Problem" of course. :)

It's almost like people knew that this topic was coming and have been preparing in the Green Room! ;)

What it is?

No comment

I just made a post about some folks who made it to 100 weeks, which fits nicely into the idea that everyone has an origin story, a beginning place they called "home", a "square one"...

Everyone has a tale of

Where I’m From

Which is your topic this week.

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

Once again, I was going back and forth between a couple potential topics on my list - and Cynthia broke the tie.

So what did she pick? Not this one. I'm actually going the other direction, because the more I looked at it, the more it spoke to me as "Week 5". :) The other? Will probably be Week 6 or 7. :)

For now though, your topic is

Fear is the heart of love

It's easy to get caught up with where you are at right now. Or where you were in the past.

But it's 2017, and LJ Idol Season 10 is back in action with a new topic!

What is it?

It's a Wayne Gretzy quote:

“I don't skate to where the puck is. I skate to where the puck is going to be. "

Yes, there is a Break, and this is it.

However, I am putting this up as a non-mandatory challenge. A challenge with a reward.

The topics this week are:

Jantelagen
Sang-froid

Kummerspeck
and
Possum ran over my grave

You have until Jan 2nd at 8pm EST to complete ALL FOUR entries.

Have fun!

We all have that person in our lives.

Maybe more than one of them in some cases.

You know who they are. You know what sorts of things that they do.


They are

That One Friend

and they are the topic this week!

Hello and welcome to the first topic of LJ Idol Season 10!

There was going to be whole spiel here, but I'll save that for the Work Room and just let you know that your first topic is:


I need the struggle to feel alive



The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Wednesday, Nov 23rd at 8pm EST


(Please remember that the topic thread is for posting of links only - and declaration of a "bye" being taken. You have two of them for this season, usable until the Top 50. All other comments should go to linked entries or to the Work Room)

Have fun!

Take at look at the subject line, that should help you decide "Am I in the right thread?" If you have identified yourself as a newbie, this is the place for you.

If you have taken part in Idol before, if your name (or a user name you have used) is on this list: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html , or if you think "well technically, you could consider me a newbie, but..." If there is a "but"/"if"/"kinda" in there - please go to the other thread: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/947738.html

Now that it's just the newbies, I'll let you know that this is the Week 0 topic thread for you.

It's an easy start, with something that I almost always use for "Week 0". It's not mandatory. No one will be eliminated.

I'll talk more about it in the Work Room (which will be posted in a few minutes, keep an eye out for it) but for now, I'm going to bold the Week 0 topic:

Introduction


and let you know that you have until Thursday, Nov 10th at 8pm EST to link your entry back to this thread. ( Please note: this thread is for links only. Entries are posted in your journal and comments are posted in the Work Room.)

Have fun!

This is an optional topic. No one is being eliminated. I'm telling you that ahead of time so there is no confusion.

The topic? The usual Week 0:
