Stiletto's sad, La'Toya's pissed, Sid's in deep you-know-what, and Couscous is probably pretty happy about it. A big vote happens, Sylvester is the casualty, and the Tera tribe has officially gone extinct.

Sylvester was a ton of fun to write for. I always wanted to have an "upper class twit" play Survivor since it's a fun character archetype to make fun of, but I wanted to do a lot of new things with it. It would've been SO SO INCREDIBLY UNBELIEVABLY EASY to give Sly an OTTN edit but what made him great was that he could be both P and N with his personality, incredibly loyal but also incredibly stubborn and delusional, and with a hard-wired love/hate for certain types of people. And have the loyalty thing explained in that; shocker, he's a Pokemon. :o

I also really enjoyed how his penalty vote shaped the strategy of the post-merge. He ended up getting votes every round because people thought he could make for an easy boot but other people were bigger targets and he had a fairly safe core of protection throughout his stay.

I could've let him go farther and there were drafts where he did (and drafts where Nelson/Cree were the last Tera standing lol), but I felt with Bart leaving last time and just starting to explore Sid's new dynamic I felt it was time to give Stiletto a similar dynamic and take out the last obvious pair.

The best part is, this is only half the drama for this episode!

GOD DAMNIT! And so Sylvester has left us. What the fuck.
We all know that La'Toya is going to have a huge downfall and it is going to happen VERY soon, but I sincerely hoped it would be in this comic. Unfortunately for me, Sylvester had penalty votes.

I swear to god Vile, if La'Toya makes it to the finals, I will stare at you in a way that makes you uncomfortable for the rest of your life, or my life.

Yay... now we only have to wait until the FTC for Latoya to get her comeuppance... just great.

@qazox: Or at F5, F4, or F3, or she wins.

@Vilecheese: She ain't gonna win.

@LandenMaster: He was a good character. I'm glad I bumped him up to the F6 when originally he was going to finish 9th.

R.I.P. Tera
I probably won't miss Sylvie because he always felt entitled to be the P angel of the series (which that was your intention, and it was great), his delusion made me laugh on how he was oblivious to most things, but he came off as a hypocrite when I was trying to like him, he gave Stiletto more complexity, and I appreciate that.

@Missalice3: Sylvester is someone who legitimately does want to do the right thing, but can be very inaccurate on what that is depending on the situation.

@Vilecheese: I can see that.
