Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Never pick a fight with the pony who's the swing vote, and with all that off of her chest, Sunflower sends Artemis packing.
Now I'm not going to get into the issues people had with her owner, but I do feel that it did create a scenario so that Artemis was never able to be viewed as a character alone. And while I do know there were some issues with her later on, I'm still unsure how much of that was compounded with the drama. I feel that had there been no comments, Artemis would have been semi favorably viewed.
Onto Artemis herself. I honestly liked her. She did everything that I needed her to do. She was a perfect Co-Leader with Flay, and I did in all honesty write the first half of the season with Artemis as the winner to give more backup to Eli's claims. She was a contender for most people, and I also wanted to have a story option with her of once Flay left she would emerge and take over. Which I saw echo'd for ALOT of people in the comments. She was always the one who would last longer. However we saw it in the edits, so do you really think it would pass the character in the season that could see the edit? She was very strategic, and very dominating, and I needed those qualities in her whether they were appreciated or not.
Chimchar if you feel this was personal against you, or done in ANY way to spite you. This comic was done before the shit hit the fan in the comments, you did not hurt Artemis's chances. This is where she was always meant to place.
Ding Dong the Nitch Is Gone and We Can All Celebrate!
Chimchar, I know you're probably mad by the time you're done reading the comic, but take a really deep breathe and think of happy thoughts. Don't say something you'll really regret.
Please Chimchar. Do this for all sake.
Can't wait for the fireworks between Tailslover and everyone
Imma go grab popcorn yall brb
I hope Artemis's creator is not too upset by this.
@shadow0knight: Lol. For Chimchar, there is no happy thoughts. This has been the best selection for F9 in a while.
Well, with the two who were in the most control gone, this game has really changed. I can't wait to see what's next for this group.
Goodbye, Artemis. I think the comments ruined her for most people, but I still appreciated her. She will be missed. The Artemis Wars will not.
Meanwhile, I'm going to celebrate my favourites making the merge. Keep up the good work!
@Friend of Fennecs: She'll probably be a bitch on the jury though.
*huddles in nuclear fallout shelter waiting for Tailslover to comment*
Wow Sunflower really grown a backbone. The only downside to this is that those two clowns Juiced Up and Claus are going to themselves credit for this, while it was Sunflower that did everything.
@BlueDevil: I know, but since this whole drama is not only happening here but also on Deviant Art and I'm the main reason he knows about SFC, so it's my responsibility to try to keep him calmed down.
@shadow0knight: I see. Well, you taking responsibility for this is noble of you and I cannot deny your kind gesture. You have my eternal respect.
Ohgod, Tailslover is going to be so pissed.
I don't think Tailslover is commenting today. Tailslover has been the first poster for pretty much the whole season. I'm starting to think when she called it quits yesterday, she meant it...or at least she's going to comment way down the line. But at least Artemis made the jury. If a character I submitted made jury, I'd be really happy about it.
And on that note, I feel that both Artemis and Tailslover ragequit in very much the same way the last two days ironically, not that I mean that in a bad way or anything.
As for what happened, a lot more obvious than the last 2 votes (had to be :p), but still really well done. People seem to have called it when they said Artemis's speech to Sunflower did her in, and I love how she threw that back in the voting panel with "Sorry also for voting you off, but as you said, It's a game! ^-^" And as a side note, even Whitney ignored her on their tribe? that's surprising.
@anime9001: Yeah they basically treated her like crap whose sole purpose was used as a vote. Her position was like Naruto at the beginning. She managed to find friends through the Hantz Tribe with her first and only friends at the moment being Eli and Paine. Remember, Sunflower did say she was lonely for a long time until Hatnz Tribe. Because of Eli and Paine's influence, they gained her trust and friendship, which is what she wanted all along.
@SWSU-Master: I know this has been asked recently but I can't recall in which comic, but how can one send in character applications for your comic? I'd love to come up with someone to get cast :)
Don't let the door hit ya on the way out...
Wow, I'm surprised Sunflower went and grew a backbone out of nowhere.
I never really cared for Art, myself. Sunflower hit the nail on the head when she said she was always "strategy, strategy, etc." Gamebots are boring, quite frankly, and her pre-tribal council talk with Sunflower was hilariously galling, arrogant, and insincere. My only regret for her elimination is that I can see her returning in an All Stars season.
@QJD: Yeah, but she won't make it as far though. I can see her going against Ventious though and Vent just beating her by a mile because he's liked more.
Best Day Ever!
Bye Artemis!The F3 Eli predicted are gone in back to back tribals, but anyway I didn't really like any of the last 3 who left, so I'm glad there gone, since I found them overrated and they got to much screen time. Also I don't have to bite my tongue anymore when I see certain comments that pissed me off, but then again I have to be nice about things, an just ignore it, since everyone is different in views and personality.
Now that Merge is coming, What do you think the Merged tribe will be called. Will it be named after another Survivor? Will it be something random? MAKE YOUR PREDICTION FOR FUN!
The merge tribe better be named Diaz-Twine! D: Or like... Lusth? IDK.
It'll either be Hatch or Diaz-Twine. My gut's saying the second.
Eli has completely shattered the edgit mold this season, so I feel that it's a fitting name :p
Now all the good characters and JU & Claus are left in the game this is going to get interesting.
And finally the merge has come, in my opinion I think that Flay atleast would have gotten a jury spot not only artemist, but o well thats how you wanted, im okay with it
@sesareee: pretty much the popular opinion on Deviantart lol
Tailsover can be pissed, ain't care.
The comment title pretty much says it all. If someone like Tailsover is going to get pissed, over events that happened in a comic like this, knowing it is NOT to be taken seriously. Then Tailsover doesn't need to be saying much else. Good riddance to bad garbage. Artemis is a good character, sucks I can't say the same for the creator...
.... sorry, had to be done.
Sunflower is secretly IKE! :O
Either way, great set of Tribals this episode.
Well, at least she got Jury. That should lessen the rage. But just in case...
Hey qazox, got any more room in that fallout shelter of yours?
Friendship is tribal victory.
Sunflower certainly grew up in those comics, who would have thought she would be responsible for such power moves...?
As for Artemis: I had high expectations as she was a great strategizer. Too bad her character development followed the wrong path (in a somewhat extreme way in the end). Although she deserved it for treating Sunflower without true respect I wouldn't mind seeing her in the next AllStars once she takes care of her anger issues
I doubt Dwayne will be too thankful for the saving. Eli&Co were honest with him but I expect him to rejoin Whitney and her alliance after the merge because he won't know better
this is the best thing to ever happen in the history of this comic. as i said on last comic, flay was a good guy to leave.
and now artemis is out, this eliminates all the loose ends to the story line, all the people who didnt really have a point.
as for the next elimination, im guessing one of the stronger people will go.
also YAY MERGE :3 idk why but i think the tribe will be the Equestria tribe or whatever it is from MLP.
@Sunslicer2: What about Hatch?
To be honest I was okay with Artemis until I saw her voting confessional. So immature and petty.
For the Merge name, I'm betting that it's Diaz-Twine.
Well, I figured I might as well put my two cents in, seeing as everyone else seems to be.
I was honestly surprised and interested in what happened in the comics...until I read the comments.
Okay, I rarely get frustrated at people. I'm more calm and composed than most, and can handle people that no one can. But that...that's almost blew my top.
Seriously. Artemis was no witch, she was no devil, she was a GOOD character. She got treated worse than Crisco did...and that bothers me. Crisco was MEANT to be a villain. You were SUPPOSED to get mad at his existence. But Artemis's hate was ALL fan based. She became a villain because the fans MADE her a villain.
Really? Really guys? I understand she was a real player, smart, and game focused, but that doesn't make her a bad character! I can think of many old survivor characters that were very similar to her that got NONE of the hate she is getting now.
You guys finally got your way, Artemis is gone...but seriously, suck it up. Don't cheer and celebrate, you may have officially emotionally scarred someone. Chimchar was a bit competitive and annoying at times...but he NEVER deserved this...
I hope I didn't offend anyone, but I hate seeing so much...well, "hate" on here. She may not have been interesting, but that doesn't mean you whine and whine and whine about it! This comic was made to make everyone happy, NOT JUST YOU. If there's a character you don't like, don't whine like you deserve better. You wake up every morning to free entertainment that probably took at least an hour to make. Whichever direction the game goes, wherever the road takes, suck it up, and either keep reading or stop. I don't want a repeat of this again...someone was badly hurt here, and that's just not right.
Sigh... Why is there all this drama anyway? I was half paying attention to the comment section. Though I did comment every now and then. But that was mainly to do with the page. Or being random. But I guess I was too subtle in saying that everyone is taking this way to seriously and should calm down. For that I am sorry. Well, not like anyone would listen to me anyway.
I seriously would not blame SWSU-Master, for closing this comment section this season, and maybe other seasons, if this is the kind of thing that continues to happen.
That is, if he could close the comment section, I honestly don't know how this site works because I do not make my own web comics and post them here.
Anyway, I really hope everyone will finally calm themselves and enjoy the comic, instead of going crazy ballistic over everything.
Oh well, that is my 2-cents about this matter, and I hope that is the end of it.
For All those Smackjeevers
I can see you guys upset about the Artemis war the Deviantarts and TailsLover had. What we were only simply trying to do is tell him that he needed to not overreact over a character. Tails made Artemis when he was young and he should be happy she got in. We were only simply arguing with him mainly because we were only thinking that he though his character was the goddess of SFC and was perfect to win. If she had a full detail backstory at the beginning, we might of not hated her. But his comments saying how Artemis wouldn't have lost this or Artemis wouldn't do that was what made us got into fights with him. SWSU only did his best on how Artemis was going to do. People would need to know they can't win at everything and the way we saw her was 100% Stragey bot, sure her backstory involving her brother is sad, but she even said he was stupid. And when she finished speaking to her, she got super cocky that things were back with her. Sunflower did all this to help show that you can't be cocky in this game. What Artemis should of done was to see what would of been more important to her own ally. She would of known Sunflower is from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic because she is a Pony and in Ponyville Friendship is important to them. That what lead to Artemis downfall.
@Scorpio: plenty of room, just don't knock over the beer.
Good riddance to a generic character, a complete jerk, and all of the comments drama. Second reading, and this is now retroactively my favorite strip of the season.
I love it :D
OMG this doble tribal counsil, was the best of the history i love it :D
