A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

There were a few moments when I was trying to recall if there was any precedent for *everyone* missing the deadline. (I decided that although that exact situation hadn’t happened, that there was an rule I could use for the situation. That’s one of the advantages of having a decade to draw from!)
As it turned out though, that wasn’t needed. Idolers, as ever, just like to wait until the last possible second. Maybe it’s because they want to perfect their entries. Or maybe it’s just because they like messing with me. (I know what my guess is).

Unfortunately, [livejournal.com profile] magazhchi ended up missing deadline which means they are leaving us. (Hopefully not for long though, because Second Chance sign-ups are still open! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/981280.html)

For those who remain, there are three spots and two of them are moving forward.

The poll will close Feb 28th at 9pm EST so make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites!

Good luck to everyone!

You never know how a season is going to shake out. Heck, this season, I'm not entirely sure how it is going to go week-to-week.

Of the four people leaving us this week, 2 are sacrifices:

The extremely promising newbie [livejournal.com profile] llblckraincloud and Season 9 Winner [livejournal.com profile] suesniffsglue!

Not sure that either of you will be available to jump into Second Chance, but hopefully life gives you the time and space for the Home Game!

Those last two spots? In Season 10 fashion, there is a 4-way tie!

are going into a Sudden Death Write-Off!

4 enter. 2 survive to fight another week!

It's an "Open Topic", so you can write on anything, just remember to "bring it"!

There will be an identified thread, below, to link your entries. You have until Monday, Feb 27th at 8pm
Have fun!

The only thing that is making it OK for me to be saying goodbye to 2 of these people is that I can point them to the Second Chance sign-up sheet and hope they will take my advice.

For the moment though, we are saying goodbye to

[livejournal.com profile] aniron_iorhael and [livejournal.com profile] bunnika

Thank you so much for coming out this season. I've really loved reading your entries, and seriously, get yourselves over to Second Chance right now...

I don't want this to be "goodbye".

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

My favorite part of a Write-Off is that it is a spotlight on folks who may have fallen off the radar. There’s no “I didn’t have time to read everyone”. In this case, there are literally three short entries, if you don’t have the time to read them, you probably didn’t have the time to click on the link to see this post! ;)

My least favorite part? That we will be saying goodbye to some of them.

In this particular case, there are three contestants, and only one spot left in the competition for them. Which means two of them need to go… fortunately, the sign-ups for Second Chance have started, so I hope we will see them there. I’ll admit it, I *personally* really hope that we will see them there, because these are three folks I’ve been enjoying reading this season and knowing that two of them are going is only cushioned by that hope.

Who that person is, who will be moving forward, is entirely in YOUR hands. So read the entries and vote for your favorites!

The poll closes Saturday, Feb 18th at 10pm EST

Good luck to everyone!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

They had 24 hours to write, in order to stay alive in the competition.

Week 5 had ended in a 3-way tie, and the only way to settle it was with the blood of innocents pistols at dawn a good ol’ fashioned Write Off!

Unfortunately, one of them did not make it to the starting line. Which means they are automatically eliminated. Goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] thepheenixeyri. Really sorry to be losing you like this.

Thank you for coming out for the season, and I hope we will see you mount a comeback in Second Chances.

As for the two remaining contestants - there is only one spot and two writers who want it!

Which means it comes down to the will of the voters.

Read the entries. Comment. Vote for your favorite(s)!

They wrote these in dire circumstances, and deserve your attention and affection. So go show them some love!

You have until Friday, Jan 20th at 10pm EST to cast your votes and decide who will be staying, and who will be joining the Home Game.

Good luck to both of you!
