Wanna help out my friend?

So, my BFF theun4givables is in the Top 10 for the mini-season of LJ Idol, and I'm superduper proud of her. She's been putting out amazing stuff and really stretching herself as a writer. Her piece this week was kind of a huge risk and competition is tough and lord knows I remember how fierce it got near the end in season 8. She's not doing great in the poll and I'd love to help her out if I can.

Would y'all mind checking out her post and maybe throwing her a vote if you enjoy it?

A few warnings in case you're the triggery type (but they're spoilers): [I warned you about this warning]gore, violence, sexual abuse and language.

The poll is here:

Voting ends at 9 pm tonight.

Which gives you plenty of time to check out all 10 entries and vote for any that catch your fancy.

Thanks, y'all! :D

And yeah, woops. I forgot to put trigger warnings because hey, I thought this was no worse than a few other things that I've posted and well...

Thank yoooooou. <3

I almost said it was no worse than most of the stuff I write but I don't know if that's actually true or not.

I actually think it might be worse, but I think I also have no real limits when it comes to written gore. Like I really didn't think this was all that graphic until a few people commented that they couldn't push through it. D:

That's the thing. I'm not sure because I never write gore. Like, ever. My stuff is a different kind of bad.

I've already voted, though after this season I don't think I will any more. Too many good writers with smaller friend lists going out and too many crap writers with a large friend list making their way into the top.

But we need people who vote on the writing aspect alone to stay in so it doesn't become a total pimp fest. ;)

I appreciate the vote, though. <3 At this point I'm just glad I managed to get as far as I did WITHOUT hassling my friends list or Sarah's friends list every fricken week. :) But I am also highly competitive and am hoping that this at least pushes me a little closer to not the very bottom. This morning I was like 8 votes behind applespicy -- so the pimping I've done already has helped, some. :)

I hope you manage to pull through the week!

I don't always vote on writing aspect alone to be fair, and last idol I absolutely 100% just voted for friends, but it's sad to see really good writers go home in the place of people who really aren't very good.

It's really hard when you've got a small friends list, which is one reason I'm trying to help out theun4givables. She's made this far with a teeny tiny flist and me posting a link for her ONCE.

Although to be honest, once you get to this point in the game it's super hard no matter how big your flist is. Or at least it was for me. I'm still traumatized by the 17 posts in a week and a half thing.

I'd campaign for her, but my FL is about as minimal as they come. It's nice to see someone who's not in it because they have tons of friends but only because they are a good writer. I'll cross my fingers for her.

And yeah, still super hard, but still super duper much easier when you can put up a post every week begging a few dozen folks to click a poll for you than when you only have a handful of actives on your FL.
