Retribution

Welcome to the 13th Round of Making the Cut (MTC, in short.)

And so, 16 have signed up for a journey of epic proportions, including serious backstabbing, secret alliances, revengeful actions, and voting one another out of the game, in essence, 'cutting' the other members out, who will wait until the last round, to vote for one of two people, who will become the ultimate survivor of Making the Cut.

11 are already cut, and they have become the first few members of the jury. In the end, only 2 will be left, and the remaining 14 who have been cut will decide upon the winner.

*****
(Round #13 Info)
*****

*With only 5 players left in the game, things are getting pretty tense. The game can shift any way.. and it soon will be. These 5 players are currently resting up in a different location, but the jury has been summoned in to the seating area. The members of the jury that have arrived are a little stunned, the players are not here..*

Mateui: You may be wondering why you are here, and the players are not. You have been cut, and you're already out of the game - but not for this round, at least for awhile.

*The eyes on the jury’s faces light up..*

As you may or may not know (Although you should be following the game..) there are only 5 people left in Making the Cut. They are:

DarkPriest
Deluge
Gamewolf
MasterDarkNinja
Safari

This round, and this round only, instead of these 5 people participating in the vote, and voting one of themselves off, you, the people in the jury will decide which one of these 5 people is not worthy enough to make the final 4. That's right, this round, you will need to vote, of who you want to cut from those 5 people. Who shouldn't be in the final 4? Who should be in the jury instead, alongside with you? Please vote, and remember, Revenge is sweet.
(NOTE: PLEASE, DO NOT, AND I REPEAT, DO NOT TELL THESE 5 PEOPLE THAT IN THIS ROUND THE JURY WILL VOTE. I WANT THIS TO REMAIN SECRET, AND TO BE A SURPRISE FOR THEM. I DON'T WANT THEM TO KNOW WHAT'S COMING. SO PLEASE, JUST VOTE, AND KEEP IT SECRET.)

(You may receive some sort of punishment if you do not abide by the above rule. Do not tell them. Just imagine how shocked they will be when they find out what happened. It will be more fun this way.)

Good. I trust no one will spill the secret.

That is all. You may now begin voting.

*The jury looks at each other, and is glad to have an impact on how the game will take place. One jury member gets up from his seat, and walks up to the voting platform. It is Koromai. He writes down a name angrily.*

DarkPriest

Koromai: I'm not sure but I think he voted for me last round.

*Koromai was hoping to exact revenge on DarkPriest, and to pay for what he did to him.. But did DarkPriest really vote for him in the last round? It was too late to change the vote anyway..*

*Meanwhile, Faust was now standing on the voting platform. He writes down a name.*

MasterDarkNinja

Faust: He's the ONLY way DP isn't going to win this heh, as Safari is pretty unpopular (not in my eyes, love ya babe!), and Deluge = who? No offence XD. DarkPriest IS going to win this. I command it.

*Faust was pretty sure of himself, and that his vote would hold great power.. Maybe it would, but maybe it wouldn’t – only time would tell.*

*Fire Mage was now standing on the voting platform. He too wrote down a name, and held it up to the camera.*

Safari

Fire Mage: I vote out Safari because the he's just lucky. But then I want DP out again..... but... I hope I'm making a good choice?

*Fire Mage was a little unsure about his choice, but Safari needed to go – he got lucky twice in the past, and cheated death.. Perhaps this vote would send Safari right out of the game.*

*Humigotchi had walked up to the voting platform – and he knew right away who he would vote for. He wrote down the name.*

MDN

Humigotchi I vote out MAsterDarkNinja because for some reason I think he deserves it. Mwahahahahaha.

*Revenge was sweet for Humigotchi.. and MDN would not win.. at least in his eyes.*

*Humigotchi walked back to the seating area, and Turkpimp now got up to the voting platform. He thought about his decision for a while, and then wrote down a name.*

Safari

Turkpimp: I'm going to go with Safari, just because.

*Turkpimp put his vote in the container, and walked back down to the seating area, and left. Only one more jury member was left, and he was seating along in the seating area.. Little did he know that his vote would make the largest impact of all..*

*Cawin looked around, and noticed that he was the last one to vote.. He tried to calculate who everyone voted for, and for the most part his assumptions were pretty accurate.. He needed to decide who he would vote for. He stood up from his seat, and walked to the voting platform. He picked up the pen, and wrote down a name on the ballot. He held it up.*

The Vote is Not Seen By the Camera

*Cawin says something, but alas, the camera too cannot hear it..*

*Cawin walks back to the seating area, and leaves. The vote container is now sealed, and brought to a stand before the seating area.. A few hours pass, and finally, everyone is brought into the seating area, including the 5 players.*

*The 5 players are all anxious to vote. This round will be a very strategic one, and will decide how the game will play out in the next two rounds. Surviving this one will be crucial, so voting must be done right.. But regrettably, any plans they had will be useless, as they will soon find out their fate..*

Mateui: Round #13 is over. What?! You say. Well, while you thought that you were waiting for Round #13 to begin, it was already going on. This round revenge will be served - meaning that the jury would have to cut one of you 5 out of the game.

*The jaws dropped on the 5 player’s faces.. This was a really bad situation, and fairly unnerving – having your life placed in the hands of the people you lied to and cheat, all so that you could make it this far.. Regret was showing up on some of the players faces.. Who was safe, and who wasn’t?*

Mateui: Some of the jury voted, and now, one of you will join them in the jury. All your past actions were taken into consideration, and the jury made their choice based on how you played the game. If you made many enemies - watch out, because your head may be on the platter tonight.

Ready to see the jury's choice? (I will not tell you which jury member voted for who, I will only state first which members of the jury voted.)

5th Vote:
Safari

Mateui: And this is what the person said who made that vote: (“I am gonna take a bribe to get his sister... IN MY PANTS!")

That has got to be the funniest vote in MTC history. But, unfortunately, it is not so funny for the person who is now cut. I'm sorry, but you've just been eliminated from Making the Cut, and have joined the jury.

Do you have any final words?

*Safari nods.*

Safari: Oh gosh.

Well, let's start from the beginning. I started out in the game, very well expecting not to make it past the first round. As I soon saw, I wasn't very wrong in my thinking. People started voting for me quite a bit right from the get-go. (I think it's my charm) I decided that it would be safest to stick with Erave since he has so much influence, and very well wouldn't be voted off any time soon. By round 6 I think it was, I finally pulled out and voted for Erave himself. HO NOES, TEH BACKSTAB! I noticed that more and more people were realising the threat he posed and so I figured that I might possibly have a chance to get rid of him. It didn't work, and unfortunatly, he found out. The next round, he arranged everyone to vote for me because of my backstabbing I understand, and as luck would have it, I got PA status because of it. GOOD BYE ERAVE! RARG! Anyways, with Erave gone, the game went into hysterics. (Just the way I wanted it. Heh.) A couple more rounds went by and I go lucky enough to stay in, and then came the riddle round. Everyone assumed that Erave's assumption was correct and voted for me for the one catagory. As it turned out, I got PA again instead by sheer luck once again. This was when I had to make a big decision. Everything rested on my shoulders for this. I could have voted for MDN who was quite wroth with me, but that would be very unwise. I instead got rid of Cawin, who I had person emnity with and who had been backstabbing the whole way through. this was the right choice. I then teamed up with MDN and Gamewolf in mock alliance to take down Koromai. Everything was working exactly as I had planned, and my final ace up the sleeve was about ready to be played. I had stayed in with DP by voting for him to come back and by taking up half-alliances with him, and this was where I was gonna fall back on. I was going to backstab MDN and Gamewolf and move in for the kill with DP so that I could face him and have an almost equal chance in the finals. (MDN and Gamewolf just have too much popularity to be able to contend with. They're too nice.) Well, I was going to anyways. I was going to send the PM to DP which I was sure he couldn't refuse as soon as the next round started, because my plan would be ruined if I took action too quickly. Well, Mateui pulled another trick out of his hat and had the revenge round. And so, the mighty juggernaut was finally sunk.

You may ask how I made it this far, and my answer is truthful. LUCK. I was amased even myself with how far I went. It's been a good long run, and now I finally say goodbye. Good luck to you all, and I'll see you all in the final round.

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA *cough*cough* HAHAHAHAHAHA!

*Safari picked up his things, and left the seating area. On his way out, he turned around and looked at the remaining players.. He really didn’t care for them at all – this was a game, not a place to make friends.*

Mateui: Only 4 remain, and one of them will be the final survivor, and they will be the sole person to make the cut. Who will that be?


CONFESSIONALS:

(This section will inform you about various things – things such as who voted for who (and for what reasons), who allied with who, the strategy that was used by some participants, and generally, what was happening in the heart of the game. The members speak out.)

Cawin: haha. Sorry Safari, I got my revenge. And now... I GET YOUR SISTER IN MY PANTS!

I wonder who casted that vote? Hmmm... Maybe it's that person you kicked out for backstabbing and lieing too much. I love you Safari.

MDN: (RIGHT AFTER SAFARI WAS VOTED OFF:)
Besides DP's final statement that's the best and most informative one I've ever seen.

I figured that you were gonna betray me Safari, your idea of me Gamewolf and you being the final 3 when you KNEW that we were in an alliance together didn't make sense. I could see through your plan (except for the DP alliance). I only agreed to get Koromai since I felt that I'd be voted out if I didn't, I didn't trust him anymore for his backstab and was certain that he was gonna vote for me in the last round that we got to vote in (but I was wrong only one person voted for me, and I'm not saying any names).

Though you are right you did get lucky to survive this long from how that the PA power round saved you.

I admit though I thought that I was out this round in Making the Cut from how Gamewolf PMed me saying to get onto MSN now when I saw what had happened.

MDN: (IN THE LONG RUN, AFTER THE GAME:)
While I couldn't do anything this round from not knowing that it was happening I have to say that it turned out to be a good thing that I didn't vote out Safari earlier in the last round. If I had then I would of been defeated for certain in this round.

Black Aurora: (Funny Vote: Guest Voter)
If I'm allowed to vote on Making the Cut, I'd like to vote Gamewolf off the island...yeah.
(Mateui Note: This really made me smile.. ^_^!)


VOTES REVEALED:

(This section simply points out who everyone voted for in this episode.)

Koromai -> Darkpriest
Cawin -> Safari
Faust -> MasterDarkNinja
Fire Mage -> Safari
Turkpimp -> Safari
Humigotchi -> MDN


NEXT TIME ON MTC:
