Austen fantasy week six: Winners and heading into playoffs

11 Dec

I didn’t announce that week six was the second to last week, and this week is the last! I’m quite excited to send out the prize. We had four lovely scenes this week, go read them here.

All of the scenes were fabulous for various reasons! I love that both Mary and Kirk referenced Army versus Navy. Cinta’s scene included a letter and the complex emotions of impatience, tension, and jealousy, while Kirk’s scene provided laughs, modern references, wit, and a dance between the author and Tom Lefroy. Who wouldn’t love that? Nicole continued her epic story with intensity, and Mary provided lovely description and several emotions. I gave everyone 10 points for these reasons and 20 to Mary for being this week’s winner!

Don’t forget to pick your 5 players for week seven/the playoffs!!


The scoring system:

5 points per character that you play each week that I use in the scene

10 points if you respond to the weekly scene

15 points if a character you played “wins” in the weekly scene

20 points if I pick your response for the weekly scene


Here are the point totals for this week:

Cinta: 210

Kirk: 190

Mary: 180

Nicole: 175

Irene: 150

Sarabeth: 75

Rebekah: 25

Karen: 20

Andrea: 15

Alysa: 10

Jen: 10

Susan: 5

Betsy: 0

Life in Labels: 0

Now it’s time to put your team in for week seven. The playoffs!!

Don’t forget that you’re playing for a leather-bound copy of Austen’s works, which I will buy and ship during the week of Christmas!
