"We tried to be better, but we aren't. I don't think anyone could last more than a week here if they weren't willing to do bad things." - Alba Reyes

Z is making me do it.

The Plastic Hammer Awards!


The Basics

Handler Name: Espi

Your Trademark Character: Blair Moore

Current Status of Trademark Character: So fucking close, in the one-on-one room.

Favorite Character: Min-jae Parker. Alba Reyes and Coleen Reagan for honorable mention.

Favorite Weapon: Sawlaska Thunderfuck 5000 the sawblade slinger.

Favorite Scene: No clue. Lots of great ones out there.

Favorite Death: Enzo Gatti, Astrid Tate, Caleb Diamond.

Favorite Quote: Too many, no ideas.

Favorite Post: See above

Favorite Location: I really enjoyed the crematorium sections. Got lots of mileage out of the garden/chapel.


Characters

Best Character Development: I like that Jae went from 'kind of an angry jerk' to 'a horrible person' without missing out on the in-between that made it a plausible change.

Best Game Impact: Penelope Fitzgerald just out of sheer effort to do good.

Best Innovation: Noah Whitley was unlike anyone else in SOTF, and he made it work. Also, Cass Prince and Enzo Gatti for being the first nonbinary SOTF kids and solid characters in their own rights.

Best Realism: Serena Waters was really grounded all throughout and I enjoyed her straightforward manner.

Best Heroic Character: Alba has earned her place among the SOTF Heroic Greats in my mind.

Best Villainous Character: Caedyn was pure evil, let's be real. Isabel too. Alessio gets special props for just being a pathetic scumbag.

Best Tragic Character: Bryony Adams was a pure and innocent child. Raina Rose plus Johnny McKay ended up this way as well.

Best Humorous Character: Noah Whitley was funny throughout, with special props to the deathpost side joke, and still managed to be a serious character as well.

Best Tactics: Nate surviving against all odds for so long gives him some merit here.

The Sympathy Award: I want to put Bryony in a pillow case and escape so she can be free and happy ;~;

The Empathy Award: Sandy Bricks was a jerk but he also really wanted people to leave him the fuck alone and I can get that.

The Gone-Too-Soon Award: Asha, Travis, Noah, Rene.

The He-Had-It-Coming Award: Matt had this for a while. Caedyn was this in pregame, somehow.


Scenes and Deaths

Best Tragedy: Caleb's death was very romantic.

The Stomach-Churner: Anything with Isabel. Anything. Also Jae killing Jon (eventually)

Best Impact: Isabel dying, Caedyn dying, Alessio dying, etc.

Best Comedy: Everyone's going to say the car death, but I actually think Astrid trying to shoot Penelope with the Bang! flag gun was the best thing.

The Sunglasses-and-Explosions Award: Battle Royale, Die Anywhere Else.

Best Feeling-Inducer: How many times can I vote Caleb's death?

Best Drama: Caedyn/Fiyori. Coleen/Alessio.

Best Surprise: Caleb. Again.

Best Meanwhile: All About My Mother needs to be a book. 100%


Predictions, Preferences, and Positions

If you could change ANYTHING that has happened thus far, what would you change? I mean, there's a lot of selfish stuff I'd want to change, but nothing for like, a good reason.

There are four remaining characters. Who are you counting on to be the overall winner of V6? Jae has been my favorite all version, but Fiyori has some solid chops too. Nate's good, though maybe not winner material, but I might be surprised.

How do you predict the ending of V6 is going to turn out? I'm excited for it. Mostly I just hope delays don't kill the momentum. I have high expectations though!

How much did you enjoy/not enjoy V6? It was by far my best version, and I had a ton of fun with it.

What do you like the most about V6? I liked that most of the cast was pretty memorable. In previous main versions we had tons of people who sort of floated around, and that was far less apparent here. Everyone was doing stuff.

What do you think could have been better about the version? Like Laurels said, I think the island was a little too cramped, since its torus shape and huge defining feature meant it was hard to justify certain movements beyond doing laps or staying in place.

What do you think of the overall SOTF story? I think the STAR subplot has interesting ramifications, and I think the V7 story might see some more unexpected turns.

How do you feel about V6 compared to prior versions? I was a little concerned about size at the start, but I think it turned out great overall as far as quality and connectedness of the cast.

How do you think V7 will differ from/compare to V6 and prior versions? I hope it retains that tight-knit aspect, but I wouldn't like to see it get smaller than V6 was. Just my feelings.


Talk About Yourself

What has been your favorite thing to write in V6? All my kids were fun to work on. I think in general having people like Jae, Alba, Fiyori, Bryony and so on really gave me a lot of energy to keep it up.

Which of your V6 characters was your favorite to write? Blair actually turned out as this, despite being my last concept created. I think I got into a real groove with her and I'm really happy with how she turned out overall.

What are you proudest of in V6? Not just making it past the halfway point unlike V5 and TV2, but getting to the top ten meant a lot. I also got heroed for the first time which was really gratifying. Generally I think my narratives were strong and developed and I think I did a decent job on the voice. EDIT: Also Heroing Jae was a really good decision and I'm glad I did it.

What do you wish you could improve? Henry really could've used more love. I think I just got a little stuck on his direction and never got to dig deeper there. Would love to have made him stand out more. EDIT: Also I wish I'd been more active at points.

What is your favorite V6 memory? Basically anything except for the parts where I was depressed. SOTF community is fantastic one to be a part of and I'm glad to still be around to play.

What else would you like to share? Anything goes! PIPPIN YOU COCKAMAMIE DOODLEPUFF (I kid, you are great forever)
