But here's the thing. It's a poll with four people. alephz who is currently at the bottom, is one of the people I most love and adore, and I really don't want to see him eliminated either, never mind that he is an awesome writer. Plus, he's told me that I'm not allowed to sacrifice for him. So what would be especially amazing is if you could put some tickies on both of our names.
I'm the_vernacular, as always.
I also want to draw your attention to one of my favorite pieces of the week in a second poll. yachiru wrote this crazy insane riff on The Wizard of Oz that is off the hook in a should-not-be-so-far-down-the-poll way. I don't know yachiru very well, so this isn't a "please vote for my friend" thing, this is a "please vote for someone who consistently shows up with awesome ideas and writing" thing. Here's the entry in question. You can read the other entries by ticking the links in the poll. Two people will be eliminated from this one, so if you have other favorites, vote for them, too.
Thank you very much! Whoever makes it through this poll will be in the Top Eight, so that will be excellent and fun! Last year, the entry assignments got more exciting the closer to the end they went, and I'm hoping that's going to happen this year!
Both polls close at 8pm Eastern Time tonight, so in about 12 hours.
