my D1 vote on Shade was based on a hunch. When Lenlo arrived and brought up Shad slipping, I thought it was about the "bussing" but then he explained it was the "v/v". That made it stronger.
I was going up and down on Shad in my head. When I posted the read on him, he was up, when I voted, he was down.
I didn't have any strong reads. I even considered not voting but then I realized that was a bad idea, as I was a possible lynch candidate and my vote can help.
I think I considered voting Sooh and voting Shad.
TBH I think I voted Shad for the dream (finding the scum page 1), but it also makes much more sense gameplay wise and that was a factor somehow.
Voting Sooh there does nothing. There'll be another player with a single vote, and Sooh wouldn't be around so it's unlikely that she would get a real train and it sure won't get any reactions or much gameplay (as she wouldn't be around).
Voting Shad actually does something. There's the first player getting two votes, that's a serious lynch candidate, moves the game forward, and that player will be around too and if he's a villager, he's likely to do fine.
I also had to go to sleep (I think an hour past bedtime at that point).
I'm not sure how much of all this factored into it, now that I think about it, the most important factor was probably the last one (moving the game) but I don't even know.
Some things I did didn't make much sense to me actually and I had to think about them afterward to figure out why. Like, when Doing asked me why I didn't vote her, I really was like "hmm that's a good point why indeed".
