Looks like Shaega's made a friend. Whether he wanted or not.
*sighs* Shaega...I know we're kinda supposed to sympathize with you or something, but...it's just not working. There's "boring but funny" and then there's...boring but unfunny. You're the latter.
Thank goodness for Dustin being Geoff/Fabio to the max and in such an exaggerated way that it helps balance that out. And of course Sylvia was funny, too.
@Tailslover13: All the Surfer guys sure can get lumped together
@SWSU-Master: Well, duh! Because they're all the same! They're blonde, optimistic, say "bro" and "dude" a lot, talk about surfing or the water, and try to be nice to everyone. That's all they are. Not saying that's a BAD thing, but...it's the truth. Stereotypes exist for a reason.
@Tailslover13: I was also getting pretty strong Geoff vibes him. I haven't watched Nicaragua (I realize I probably should at some point) so I don't know Fabio too well.
@Tailslover13: Is it bad that I read that as Slyvia at first?
Well shega is depressing but then if I could see dead people I guess I be like that too.
@crazy fan: He seems more apathetic than depressed
@SWSU-Master: No i mean his personality can make the things depressing.
Aaaaaand Shaega is a sociopath. Good to know.
Also I'm predicting Dustin sacrifices himself for a friend near the end of the game, only to come back at practically Final Tribal Council and win. Just seems like something a guy like him would do...for some reason.
@Vilecheese: I see what you did there lol
I half expect Dustin to spontaneously change into Michaelangelo and no one notices it.
@qazox: But can he paint?!
@SWSU-Master: No, but he sure can sculpt!
@qazox: you know I meant the Turtle ;)
Shaega can't feel emotion, huh? Well then, I see no reason to have emotions towards him.
Dustin and Sylvia are still entertaining at least, so as long as they're here, we'll have good times with Golgora.
@ChronoAlone: Maybe they can unlock something with Shaega
shaega was funnier in the last comic... so, he can't feel any emotion? i'm beginning to wonder why he was even picked to be on a tv show. shouldn't survivor pick big personalities? how strange. i wonder what would happen if he got possessed by a xeradonus soul? would it be the first time he'll get to feel emotion?
not sure if having no emotions is a shaman king thing - i'm not familiar with the series. can we get a shaman king expert in here?
i kinda want to see more sylvia.
dustin's a ray of sunshine, isn't he?
dustin's feet looked kinda large... and now i just realized you probably edited your sprite bases to have larger feet.
@Congo: Indeed. Big Feet are in.
>i'm beginning to wonder why he was even picked to be on a tv show. shouldn't survivor pick big personalities?
One name: Brian Heidik. The guy had NO emotions - he was just there to pick up his million bucks and get out, and he didn't bother to give a damn about anybody there. Thankfully Shaega doesn't seem to be anything like Brian, but sociopath Survivors are not unprecedented.
Like, Dustin was like, saying like so much that, like, it reminded me like when Hash was all like "like, I'm like a dude guys" and when he was like not like a dude and I went back through his dialogue, he, like, said like so much I thought "that's, like, so OBVIOUS now!" And now that this tribe was like talkin about how there's like one too many guys on the tribe, I like....can't stop thinking of Dustin secretly being a girl XD
He's not, but still. Brings back flashbacks. In other news, I wonder how long Shaega will seriously survive while wearing his emotions on his sleeve like that. Yes, all zero of them.
@anime9001: If Dustin is a girl he has some Reeeaaaally small breasts
This is quite the interesting conundrum. I'm excite to see how this plays out. Bully may be going home sooner than expected.
By the way Shaega, that thing your describing? It's called being a sociopath. I'm sure he was cursed or something, I'm assuming his story will slowl unravel itself.
Dustin reminds me a lot of Mac, which will be...interesting to say the least. And of course Sylvia is just being a genuine queen looking for Billy. What a great bunch of characters this season has got! Truly don't want to see a larger majority of them go.
And in Shaega's confessional his hand appears to be extremely close to fire. Not only can he not feel emotion, he can't feel any physical pain! XD
@JboyInc: I wouldnt exactly call Shaega a sociopath. Since he doesn't seem to be too malicious
@SWSU-Master: Sociopaths aren't necessarily malicious. They just can't connect with people or feel emotions.
@JboyInc: Sociopaths/psychopaths are generally much more immature (which Shaega hasn't demonstrated), much more prone to lying (which Shaega hasn't demonstrated), and much more reckless (which Shaega definitely hasn't demonstrated), in addition to the cinematic lack of empathy.
0_o Ppfffff.... *LMAS SO HARD*
Ok, I'm sorry but, that so SO hilarious w/ Shaega! I say this too bc, of all the things I repeat, ALL the things that he COULD have said/done, this was what we GET?! Hahahaha! But seriously, I'm INDEFINITELY interested in him now bc, he is basically SOULESS w/ NO emotions WHATSOEVER! & to top it ALL off, now I have to starting thinking like" What the HELL did you go THROUGH, that made you like this!?" Surely enough though, I HIGHLY assume that we'll get some answers of him MUCH sooner than expected.
Dustin/Slyvia I agree are basically the Positive reinforcement of the Normals/Golgora (w/ extra help from Marie, but more on her later on an ACTUAL comic for her). Out of those 2, there more hope for Slyvia overall, but Dustin is basically the OTTP Male that can ONLY rival Daisuke/Ky (wow there are a LOT of guys being SUPER OTTP, which in unusual).
Also, this is late I know for the last comic bf, but I was about right w/ Xerodonus/Billy in 2 aspects. allegiance/power for control.
P.S. Last note for now to you SWSU, but if you feel the want/need to ask ANY kind of question for my character's application, I have some more details for you to use through a PM or some other means, jic. *winks*
It's the clash of two worlds! Dustin is the optimistic chatterbox while Shaega is the far too honest mood killer.
I wonder what happened in Shaega's past that he cannot deal with emotions. I just know that it's a far bigger burden than I expected in the
cast release because having someone in your alliance who always says what he thinks makes the game harder for both sides...
When I said Shaega was a sociopath a few strips back, I didn't think I was actually right. On the plus side, this gives him a really interesting dynamic with Dustin.
Hmm, this was pretty entertaining. Liking Dustin and Slyvia a fair amount, but I still like people on the other tribe more. As long as Cordelia sticks around I hope that the supers win, but I'm not sure if I'll change my mind afterwards. It's funny how Dustin doesn't seem to realize the normal cannotation of "x on x action".
SWSU-MASTER'S GUIDE TO WRITING YOUNG PEOPLE
Step 1: Add ''like'' to almost every other sentence.
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit!
Seriously, Taylor, Betty, I think even Mac got into it for a few episodes. What is it with you and ''like''?
Despite that, I like Dustin, Sylvia.. Don't know. Shaega can't feel emotion? If Eli was in this comic he might have a heart attack. It can't be more obvious that Shaega is going deep and is gonna get a healthy dose of Character Development. Unless you swerve us..
Seriously how did Billy get to the Tortana camp? Did he teleport? Or did actually make the trip across the island? Or maybe this is One World and nobody else noticed?
@Blastoise_FTW: It's a different minion. There are a lot of them, after all. WAAAAYYY too many of them.
@coolkyledude: Then why can't they find Billy at Golgora? Besides I think the Producers would know if there were multiple Minions on the island.
Oddly, I still like Shaega, even if his Emotions are broken. I'm still curious to see his potential over time.
Interesting, about Shaega. Kind of a sad backstory for the guy. This could be really important later on - there's no telling how it'll affect the story. It also explains his vote for Billy - he didn't really care about the infighting between Cha'Telle/Cordelia and just did what he thought most tribes would do at their first tribal: vote out the weak, annoying one.
Honestly, I'm loving Dustin a lot more than I expected to going in. He's a lot of fun and he's got a great dynamic with almost everyone else at the camp at this point - him/Tamara, him/Slyvia and now him/Shaega. My prediction right now is that later on, he'll bring Shaega out of his shell and maybe sacrifice himself to keep Shaega in the game? That part depends on whether they're close later in the season, which may or may not happen.
