Not too late to vote!

There's mysterious talk about this being the last poll in which voters will get to decide who stays. No matter, go to the poll, read the entries, and vote for your favorites. I'm one of your favorites, right? ;)

Voting closes today at 1pm EST, so what are you waiting for?

Thank you, thank you!

To everyone who voted for me in Idol, and those who rescued Ro at the last minute, thank you. We have both made it through to the next round. Sadly, my other intersection partner in this competition, ladyozma was eliminated. Along with four other good writers, I might add.

This next round of writing will be judged by an independent panel of judges, identity not [yet?] revealed, and a "deeper cut", quantity not specified will result.

That sounds intimidating; the purpose is to attempt to base the next round solely on writing ability. But really, I think I'm still getting over the whole Open Topic problem. I generally flail around enough when it comes to picking an angle with a given Topic; picking my own topic from scratch seems to bug me.

So, a poll!
