I Wordcounted V4

So, last week when I was opening the store at 6 am I wondered who the longest character in V4 was by word count and there was only one way to figure it out so I ended up word-counting every character in V4 and thought folks might find the results interesting, especially combined with some calculations I ran. That said, before we get into it, there are a few things I'd like to note:

First off, word count is in no ways an indicator of quality. It's an indicator of length. In that capacity, it's a much better one than thread count, as we'll see shortly, but is still flawed—a one-shot, for examples, is weighted the same as that many words of a character hiding while someone else reads the John Galt speech out loud in the posts between theirs, and the latter is clearly a much higher load/commitment (unless you skip the stuff not by the character you're following).

Also, V4 had a bunch of characters who shared posts. These are marked with an asterisk (*). This can mean a lot or a little. Some characters, like, say, Ivan, have two or three early posts shared with someone they're killing or something. Others, like Marty and Josh, are basically joined at the hip and have probably close to 30% overlap with someone else. I did not bother hashing out which paragraphs belong to who, though, unless it was super obvious; I just threw it all in the pot and added a *.

This list includes only V4 proper. It does not have Pregame, Post-Game, or the Epilogue. Adding that stuff would take a while and dilute the comparative element by adding a bunch of stuff done off deadline.

I have this list ranked in two ways. The first is by placement—this is the exact death order. The second is listed from fewest to most words. This second list retains note of where the characters died, for point of interest—you'll see if someone with few words made it to the finals or if someone went out with a ton early.

I've also color-coded things a little. The first is pretty self-explanatory; characters in green got pulled in the V4 Rescue. Characters in purple, on the other hand, held the word count record among eliminated characters at the time of their death/rescue; these characters were the longest out to date at that precise moment.

I've also run some averages, grouped by announcement, that may prove mildly interesting.

To preempt the inevitable: I do plan to do, at a minimum, V5 and most Minis. That said, I gave myself some finger/wrist strain doing this so it'll be a while. I may eventually do V6 but wanna let the ground there cool a bit first/the game actually end. I may also do V2/3, but quirks of the era combine with my own unfamiliarity to make that trickier. I will almost certainly not do V1; the V1 site is hard to read and Invisionfree lacks some functions that were pretty key to doing this without going totally insane.

That said, for a point of trivia/interest, I did do V1 Dodd. He weighs in at 155,250* including Endgame but not the Epilogue. Epilogue-inclusive, he's at 198,950*—nearly double the V4 high score. This does not include his V3 stuff.

Note, in the averages, that each announcement's average grows with a few exceptions. There's a drop from the Fifth to the Sixth Announcement I'm gonna call "The Clio Effect"—Clio's stats were so much higher than anyone else at the time that she actually single-handedly pulls the average for the Fifth Announcement up. The Rescued characters also beat those who died for the Tenth Announcement, but I think that's due to the high proportion of characters in the rescue who were favorites to their handlers (which tends to correlate to more writing).

Fun trivia: V4 is roughly three times the size of In Search of Lost Time and roughly six times the size of Atlas Shrugged. It is longer than the entire Wheel of Time series. It is also longer than The Mahabharata. This count is excluding Pregame.

I'll likely pull out more stuff for highlight and discussion later, but in the mean time have fun poking through the fruits of my pointless obsession.

Born underneath a Canadian sky to parents who were quite possibly mounties, Lore roamed the wild unknowns of Quebec, becoming a kickass gamer girl and a sassy action lady. She has both fought a beaver to the death and won several arguments on instagram. Scientists have struggled for years to figure out which is sharper - her wit or Valyrian steel. She is most known outside of SOTF for her portrayal of Yuno Gasai in the anime series The Future Diaries, which she shot for 43 days on-location. She still has the pink hair dye.

"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
