For my Best Kill Award? Summer freaking Simms for her devastation of Naomi Bell. Holy mother of God, Mimi brought down the house with this one. With some really well done back-and-forth between Violent-Medic and Mimi, we got to see an ugly, brutal fight between bitter rivals, and both handlers made an excellent job of communicating it to the audience blow by blow. Props to both handlers for an excellent scene, and the best kill so far in this anonymous handler's opinion.

While I'd love to give this award to Violent-Medic as a BDA as well, I felt that Pippin brought out a very solid death post that encapsulated his character's frustration and utter anger at the whole thing. I love how it was a surprise death, that it didn't go the way I expected it to, and I especially love the way the narration goes outside of Francis' POV to change to a much more muted and colder tone as it dispassionately describes how Francis landed. Beautifully done.

See you all next month!

Best Kill Award: Megan Emerson.

Reason: I like this kill because it comes off as very real. It's not intentional, just a brief and sudden outburst with a tragic end that results in an instant and very human feeling of guilt and contrition on behalf of the killer. Other kills this version have been more impressive or dramatic, but few have appealed to me on a personal level so far.

Best Death Award: Naomi Bell.

Reason: Speaking of violent acts that appealed to me on a personal level, Naomi Bell's death scene also qualifies, but in a very different way. This was the first death I've read so far that made me cringe inside and hesitate to read the next sentence. That's not a bad thing at all; I like it for the very fact that it comes across as disturbing without resorting to childish levels of gore or ultra-violence.

Best Kill: This was a lot harder then my vote for Best Death, but in the end, I'm going to give it to Summer Simms, for killing Naomi Bell. It fits very well for Summer's character and shows an eye-catching future for her arc on the island. The scene as a whole is great, as Mimi and Medic worked very well together as writers. It was also very gritty, with neither of the girls coming out in their best shape. That was nice to see as well.

Best Death: Pippin, for the death of Francis St. Ledger. Again, this was a bit tough, but I came to this decision much easier then I thought I would have. Realism is a thing we as a board are trying to capture, especially in our deaths, and I think Pippin did well in making Francis' death come off as believable. His emotions, thoughts, and actions were very real with great characterization and a strong voice, and they also conveyed him as sympathetic while still letting him be the moody guy he is. I usually like deaths that are great scene as a whole, and while this was also a pretty great scene, I think it would still be my pick if Pippin did not have Jill doing his part of the deal nice too.

I only have a limited time to post as I need to head to work, so these reasons will be somewhat short and I'll copy/paste my BDA pick from the wiki:

BDA: Pippin, for the death of Francis St. Ledger

I was impressed with Francis' short time in the game. I mean, he was already an interesting commodity in the pregame as well and I love how Pippin stayed true to that 'bitching' personality that Francis was finally able to let loose on the island, which eventually led to Francis' death sequence. It was a unique scenario for a death, but at the same time very realistic and the sort I'd love to see again. It wasn't really a kill, more of an arguement with a great build up which led to one of the more realistic accidents I've ever read. Yes, I've read and have been apart of some contrived accidental death scenes before, so this one was refreshing as it felt a lot more natural than most.

BKA: Summer Simms, for killing Naomi Bell

The build from the beginning of the game.. no, actually from the pregame even that ultimately led to the kill here was n incredible read. What happened to Summer in the game, especially recently built up to the kill and the scene itself was well crafted with a good writing partner in Medic for Naomi. Summer's thoughts against Naomi from pregame served as a some interesting justifications, and I always love callbacks to pregame.

Kill: Summer Simms. I love it. It made sense for the characters, her state of mind was fantastic for the situation considering her personality and what she'd recently gone through and the kill was bloody and gruesome and cruel in the best ways possible. I loved it, so there's where my votes goes.


Death: Francis St. Ledger. This was an accidental death I really dug because both parties were fairly aggressive. It was very fast, due to the nature of the death (falling down stairs) but I liked the simplicity of his death and the way it was written. It felt real, but not showy and it was a character I enjoyed. So props to Pippin here.
