Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
It was a power move they wanted, and Eliminating Luna was the strongest move for them.
Luna was probably the most well rounded player in the game, and was able to deflect most of the controversy surrounding her, Everyone else in the Tortana alliance had a vendetta against one other member, and by eliminating Luna, all of those rivalries would continue and split the vote.
The key part of Luna is that she was not affected by the chaos at her old tribe, with the calm and collected personality, it was the prime reason for her ouster. In the end, I think Luna was a fine character and someone that was needed in the early stages of the game to move the story forward, but after 4 episodes, I sadly had to get rid of an applicant.... and also unintentionally the first girl of the season.
In before 10+ Luna hate comments.
@anon: She might not have been as eccentric as others, but she was pretty inoffensive.
Didn't get the Hate.
@SWSU-Master: Agreed. I just thought she was a little dull is all. No reason to hate her.
Well shit. I was kinda hoping Cordelia was leaving, but eh.
@ChronoAlone: At least it's one less stratbot here now.
With that said, glad to see Daisuke, Brandi, and Marie still around. Cordelia wreckage ftw! Let's check the damage, and cause some more!
@ChronoAlone: It was a close one
Shoot, Luna was an applicant?
Meh, still don't care about her. The owner's probably on DeviantArt anyway.
Well, now at least the supers and Marie can now officially unite as four and take out Brandi and Cordelia. Hopefully.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: The owner's here too, actually XP
Don't hurt me.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Your guilt is punishment enough
And all around the SFC world, everyone (or at least 90% of the viewers) praised the almighty SWSU-Master for FINALLY eliminating the hated Digimon. Truth to be told, I must admit that Luna seems a LITTLE unfairly hated. Just because she has no personality and is mostly all about strategy doesn't seem ENTIRELY fair. She did play her role well this season. She helped save her tribe from destruction from Xeradonus, she did her best to maintain a majority alliance, and she basically just got screwed by a couple of lying bitches and a couple of dumbass teammates. I didn't like her because the very first Digimon representative in SFC shouldn't have been so...generic. It just doesn't feel right. At least Lea being the first actual Pokemon is a lot more interesting and define. Luna was...well, you wanna know what she was? She was Beth (SFC3, SFC6). She was pretty much Beth in a Renamon's cosplay outfit. I won't miss her.

@Tailslover13: BethxLuna OTP
What the shit even was that? I read it twice over and I'm still not 100% sure what happened. I won't complain though. Crazy TC, wow. A 3-2-2-1 vote and now a 3-2-1-1-1 vote.
This answers the question of who has the Normals idol now. Also, notice how Brandi got another crazy move out? Sure, why not. This is much more believable than last episode, at least.
@coolkyledude: This one was a team effort with Cordelia and Shaega.
Compared to this tribe; the Joker's a well-adjusted person. And where does Brandi get off standing there directing traffic? Thought that was against the rules.
And in panel #21 just who was speaking there? It's not readily certain who said that.
@qazox: Brandi was speaking there to make it seem like Daisuke was the target to get him to freak out
Welp, this went as I expected. I'm glad Luna is out. No offense to Luna's creator, but sometimes dull is worse than rage-inducing. On the minus side, Cordelia is infuriatingly smug. On the plus side, Gekkota is vulnerable and Cordelia/Brandi have shown their true colors. That means Gekkota will get desperate and the entire tribe can take care of Cordelia. No matter which way you slice it, one less strategybot to take attention away from the movers and shakers.
@Sonofhades: If you want to blame someone for being dull, I was the one writing things, and some things just might not have popped in the season
Okay this move did make sense except for one thing; why did Daisuke vote for Juli? "OH MY GOD GEKKOTA AND LUNA ARE TARGETING ME I NEED TO VOTE OUT JULI!!!"? Should've been 3-2-2-1 with him voting Gekkota with Juli.
But yay, the boring character is out! Like others said Luna wasn't godawful but seeing her make it here instead of Donut/Billy/Freddy was kinda painful.
@Vilecheese: Two Reasons. 1.)3-2-2-1 vote happened last episode. 2.) The Bluff freaked Daisuke out and he panicked.
Huh, the exact reason why I thought Gekkota was leaving is why she stayed. I thought SWSU was gonna take Gekkota out to quiet down some of the drama, but he kept her to keep it going. Fair enough. Although this vote worked out a bit too conveniently in my opinion. And I agree with Vile that Daisuke voting for Juli didn't make much sense.
That aside, Daisuke should be able to piece some things together after tribal. Not sure that he will, but he should.....
@anime9001: It was going to be 3-2-2-1 or 3-2-1-1-1. And since 3-2-2-1 happened last episode a random vote flip didn't change much
You know, while I'm here I might as well start my own post-Tribal ranking system. But what should I do to differentiate myself from everyone else who does rankings? Hmm...
1. Opinions of each eliminated castaway! AKA the thing that everyone's already doing but I still kind of have to do.
2. Power rankings, like Survivor Oz!
3. Cute horserace-esque nicknames!
Alright, let's do it! Starting with everyone who's already left.
Stuffed Turkey: I think this is the first instance in a while in which the Angry Bitch character was taken out early. I guess this means only genuine females can pull it off. Cordelia's first victim happened to be the person nobody liked, so I guess all is good in Golgora.
Michael Xera Donuts: I want to punch the player who beat me to the Michael Cera joke. Anyway, I understand that he was a hassle to write for, but he was still probably the most entertaining guy this season in the beginning. Hopefully he's having fun with Billy on his Pre-Merge vacation.
Minion Fodder: Exactly that. We got our obligatory minion character out of the way, and we don't have to deal with them again. I feel like I'm going to hate myself in a few months when next season's cast is revealed.
The Golgora Decomposition: I don't really remember Freddy doing anything important during his stay. In all honesty, the only reason I was upset with his elimination was that it meant Brandi had the upper hand.
Snoreymon: While I never explicitly hated Luna, it was still very hard for me to care about anything she did. In fact, I actually completely forgot she existed back during the Episode 4 Immunity. Thank you, Vilecheese, for reminding me of her existance, and more endless apologies toward Chrono for obvious reasons.
Question: Should I use the nicknames in the rankings as well, or just use them for eliminations?
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Probably just for the boots. As far as the character rankings go for both teams for me. An awesome system you got. I like the nicknames too.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Oh, I'm not Luna's owner. I was just stating that her actual owner comments here now and then.
@ChronoAlone: Fine then, but you have a sword. What if the owner pays you to hunt me down?
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Then may God have mercy on your soul.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: You should team up with Tailslover for nicnames. You'd make a great team
Sweet glad Luna was the one to go. She wasn't a terrible character, just by far the character I was least interested in this season. Glad it was her instead of Gekkota cause I feel like she has a lot more to offer.
Taro > Ky > Marie > Sylvia > Shaega > Dustin > Daisuke > Lea > Juli > Zach > Leah > Cordelia > Tamara > Gekkota > Brandi
Gotta say I'm very optimistic about this season so far, shaping up to be one of my favorites. Big fan of your series SWSU, glad I finally decided to start commenting!
@dat4yc: Thanks. I hope it continues to deliver
What happened to their original plan? Luna would of at least had a chance with a Tie.
@Timeheart: 1.) Juli and Daisuke had animosity for Luna/Gekkota and were never truly on board. 2.) The Idol surprise caused the votes to splinter further
The hate on Luna was a little over the top. I do think she was a dull, boring character, and I can understand why Brandi/Shaega/Cordelia kept Gekkota around over her.
As for this upcoming episode, I'm going to assume that Gekkota may end up as the obvious boot in the Double Boot, and it will probably NOT be Lea in the Tortana boot. So I'm going to say Tamara or Sylvia.
Golgora: Daisuke > Brandi > Juli > Marie > Gekkota > Cordelia > Shaega
Tortana: Tamara > Zach > Leah > Sylvia > Taro > Dustin > Lea > Ky
@TJBambi93: Why don't you like Ky? .-.
@Pie31415: Actually, I adore Ky. My rankings are more based on who I think can win the game as opposed to who I like more. And Ky... well, he's basically comic relief based on five episodes so far.
@TJBambi93: Ohh, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the clarification c: Btw, I really enjoyed the waterfall finale. I wasn't rooting for the person who won, but I did feel like he/she deserved it. (Tried to avoid spoilers for fellow fans of your stories who haven't read it yet.)
@Pie31415: Thanks, glad you liked it. ^^
@TJBambi93: Gekkota cracked at the vote, and that was very handy for the others
Meh. I didn't particularly care about Luna one way or t'other, but Cordy still needs to leave like the manipulative bitch she is, and Brandi needs to leave like the paranoid pawn she is.
@landis963: Brandi is the Queen not a pawn
I don't know how to feel about that. I should be happy Gekkota still has a chance this season but the price sure was high and I still wonder if getting rid of Luna was worth it.
Ok, Luna definitely wasn't the most interesting super and there were drama reasons to boot her but Golgora would have needed her for the immunity challenges unless... the normals trio are only aiming for the merge and if it means losing all challenges and leave the others behind so be it. I'm just confident that Brandi's "idol" will be her downfall at some point since it's definitely a fake.
Now what? I wonder how Gekkota's game will continue now that she's really the lone fighter...
@SkySurfer: Whether it's short or a march to the end, Gekkota has a hard path
THANK YOU SWSU-MASTER <3.
Ding dong the bitch is dead. 4 more bitches to burn in the bottomless pit.
I hated Luna, it? will not be missed as far as I know, even though I kinda get why it had to be that straightforward and generic boring. Enjoy 16th place stratbitch.
Me when everyone became dumb af. <_<
great swap episode plus extra hearts because Luna got booted.
(Slyvia is bae and Shaega is not.)
@arv0908: They didn't really go dumb, we saw from the other episodes that there was very little trust and it was exploited.
daisuke is getting destroyed by this game. voting for juli? what?
too bad about luna; she never really got a standout moment.
next episode, tamara and sylvia go at it?
@Congo: Daisuke panicked
Awww, bye Luna :c
I have no idea what the hell just happened. This is more complicated than the Lembotto was.
Anyway.. Yeah, maybe the Luna hate was a little uncalled for. (And if her creator really is here. sorry if my harsh words about your character upset you) But... She was just SO BORING. Beth had more personality. Eric had more personality. JAKE HAD MORE PERSONALITY! FUCKING JAKE!!
And honestly, I like Cordelia a lot more now. Not Brandi though. Brandi still sucks.
@Blastoise_FTW: Jake was also more likable. And he didn't even need to say a word.
Hmm.. I just had an interesting idea. What if we started a sfc skype group? That could be fun.
@Pie31415: It could work. But we'd all have to be able to meet up at around the same time.
@Pie31415: There actually already is a group of people centered around SWSU's comics. But...it's honestly filled with morons and/or people who don't actually tend to read SFC that much. They just do ORGs. But...getting one with actual commentators would be interesting. Not sure who all has Skype, though.
@Pie31415: That would be worth a good try, actually. We could also center a group around not only Survivor Fan Characters, but Survivor in general, and other fan works.
