Day 15[edit | edit source]

I was not that actively playing the game the last few days for a personal issue, but now it is all kinda fixed. However, I did do one thing; I talked to Cali to understand why Josephine went home and gave her some advice - get out Ry. Ry is some sort of very emotional and irrational player it seems and I won't allow more people I genuinely want to give a shot at working with go home due to Ry. Hopefully her and Ali can get their shit together and drag Marie across, but Marie seems like a pretty bad player from what I've seen in this season.

Meanwhile, Julia the snake managed to survive tribal, at the expense of Felix going home, which genuinely made me happy since NuAzorella just cut one of their limbs and didn't even cauterise the wound. Furthermore, I would also like to point out that with Felix and Nick gone, the original Gallieni tribe is now ""free"" from their leaders and will probably self implode, and I won't waste time on picking out whatever scraps are left as allies, they all seem chill, except Nifty, whom is shifty as heck and seems to fall into the Felix/Kevin comp beast low social category. If I had to draft a team right now to fight against these mess Ry and Julia at the merge, I'd summon: Cali, Ali, Aren, George, Zak, Nathan, Jenna and Charlie. That is 8 out of the 17 people left, add me in and we have 9, majority. I can probably also pull Trent and Adrian in, but they are kinda these satellite component to my game whom just don't hold enough relevance for me at the time of being, but I should probably start speaking to Adrian more, since we've barely talked so far. If I had to pick the boot order for the next bunch of tribals I'd probably go something like this: 17. Julia 16. Marie 15. Ry 14. Nifty They are just people I feel that I will not be able to work with, Julia betrayed me, Marie seems pretty thick-headed, Ry is an overly emotional player and Nifty did do that idol play. So yea, that is all for now, I'll have to start talking to Adrian sometime soon.

Hahaha, this is a funky day for me personally because this is day 15 - and of course that might not be the ACTUAL day count of how many IRL days we've spent playing but gamewise this is the day that I was voted-out in Socotra. Hopefully it'll be the day that I win immunity here!!! :)

–Aren


So, Zakriah & I have been talking about what we should do going forward or in the case that we lose immunity again, and we're thinking of maintaining our alliance with Trent and taking Julia out. It'd really suck to let her go but if I have to make a decision between her & Trent? I'd say that I've already made my choice.

–Aren


I'm so happy I'm still here. Julia is still freaking me tf out in this game, I feel really solid with Trent and Aren going forward, I hope this doesn't turn out like it always does for me and the two people I think I can trust are really trying to snake me out all along! Only time will tell, maybe I'll come to fully fucking regret writing that I trust them and want Julia out, maybe I'll be incredibly satisfied with this decision. All I know is I have a decent opportunity of surviving should we lose this next immunity and I feel a lot better about my position than I did last night for sure!

–Zakriah


I'm really really hoping I can dodge tribal again, even with that shoddy puzzle score I turned in due to a lack of time yet again for me to do the challenge. If we do go to tribal this time though, Andy and I are gonna have to work some magic to sway Miguel over cuz I am 95% sure he knows I voted him, so roping him back in to vote out Nathan will take some dedication. I'm just hoping I can avoid that and swap out of this tribe though, I need more space, this tribe is activating my claustrophobia.

–Nifty


The biggest issue with conversing with Miguel is that there's always a part of him that seems distant whenever I talk to him. Like it could be the "LIT"-esque vocabulary he uses and the whole LEDGLEDGLEDG thing he does every now and then, but like you'll be having a short conversation with him and then all of a sudden boom he doesn't talk anymore and leaves you unseen. Or he just seems to be beating around the bush whenever you want to talk to him about something. Idk he's just hard to get a read on or relate/bond with just cuz he acts so distant in conversation.

–Nifty


I feel bad enough as it is about my puzzle solving abilities and then I tell everyone my time which is like 2/3 mins off theirs and George is like "oh shit we're going to tribal XDDD". And I'm just here like wow thanks! If we go to tribal I'm coming straight for his ass. I've grown tired of him.

–Charlie


Day 16[edit | edit source]

Welp!!! Yet another win in the bag for me! And, honestly, it's kinda bittersweet. I'm glad that I don't have that nasty feeling of paranoia due to having immunity, but I really, really don't want Cali to go home at the same time :'( if she goes I'll be really upset and I would have then lost my two closest allies from OG Azorella - both Cali AND Josephine. Lord have mercy.

–Aren


So, we lost and I have only 30 minutes to talk to my tribe because I'm going out ouf my house and coming back after the deadline which ughhh. I completely sucked in that challenge so hopefully they won't get me out. I think Cali's with me and I want Ry gone. We just need to convince Ali.

–Marie


Ali told me he's gonna vote Ry and I made an alliance with him to completely lock his vote, hopefully it'll work out. Cali still needs to talk to him though. Ugh, it's so stressful.

–Marie


BITCH FUCK ME UP okay so second again like literally all of the tribe challenges myself, george and jenna have gotten 2nd....I count that one that I sat out as 2nd place because technically we finished in second place but due to the fuck ups we won regardless, bitch in IDS I was voted out on day 11 in 17th place like fuck me up I have officially beaten my placement! YYAAAAAAAAS that is one goal off my list!!! now I just need to survive a tribal and I'll be happy! But will that happen???? Probably not tbh

–Adrian


I officially have beat my previous total days lasted from Sumbawa. I'm happy because this makes me the first sumbawa returnee to improve their longevity, furthers my record for longest lasting sumbawa returnee, and proves that I was a great choice to prove that I've improved :)

–Zakriah


YES YES YES YES YESSSSS!!!

Apparently Random.ORG is my new closest ally in this game because I randomed what idol guess I'd take next and guess who now has the idol?! Lil Aren does!!! *kisses it* it's so beautiful omg I'm so happy yasssss <3

I just gotta make sure it ain't a fake now lmfao

–Aren


As for who I'm going to tell about this beauty? Probably nobody. If I manage to meet up with her again, perhaps Cali? Other than that, though, this is my lil secret. A man never kisses an idol and tells!

–Aren


Okay, lol, uh, so, apparently Nifty's idol literally looked the exact same as mine? But doesn't 703 usually change the look of the idol based off of the tribe it's from? Now THAT'S fishy... But it makes no sense that to create a fake idol someone would simply take the Gallieni picture and use that because it's so easily identifiable.

I'm gonna do more research into the history of 703 and what the idol's look like, but as of now I'm just gonna keep in mind that this idol could still potentially be a fake and therefore I shouldn't do anything ballsy with it.

–Aren


NVM, just checked Caracol and the idols seemed to be the exact same there too? So, aye, I think my idol is legit and... holy damn this game is looking good for me lmao.

I'm gonna be honest, when I came into this game, I didn't truly think I was gonna win... As much as I might have said that, I never truly believed in myself. I've had the determination to win, yes, but I've only really gained true HOPE recently. With this idol and how the game is going for me right now; the hope sure is dramatically increasing. And my ego is inflating itself! :)

–Aren


Daaaamn do I wish I was with Cali right now.. I would totally consider saving her with this idol, tbh. I can't say that I'd definitely do it because this idol is insanely important to my game but I'd certainly consider it.

–Aren


Honestly I'm so glad that yet again I just get to sit back, enjoy a day of little strategising and make one of my favourite cocktails ever. I find it interesting that all the challenge beasts are being targeted early on. Like Kevin and Felix were pretty damn amazing, and I wouldn't be surprised if like Ryan or Joan ended up joining them soon. Personally I'm someone who'd keep those challenge beasts around as shields but, apparently, other people have different plans.
