I came into Survivor: Fan Characters with high expectations; I haven't really found a Survivor fanfic that filled my need for Survivor and videogame characters at all. Survivor: Fan Characters? It comes damn close.
I'll start off with the negatives. First of all, grammar and spelling needs a lot of work. Most of the time, I can see what the author was trying to do, but it's disconcerting to go through a dramatic scene and suddenly see a mispelt word that throws the whole mood of the scene out of whack. Next, we have the main plot and the characters: what's kind of glaring is that the focus of the story doesn't seem to be on Survival, like the main TV series, but more on alliances and gameplans. I'll chalk this up to being video game characters, and therefor not really needing much survival skills, or maybe even just a distillation of the series: maybe the author doesn't like the characters on the show, but more the strategy part of it, the social game. But then why do you have injuries and such, but not starvation, inability to start fire, or the effects of malnutrition or a far whittled down supply of food, like the show? As a whole, it makes the characters seem too much like bland strategy bots, and for the most part not really discussing the important stuff as often as they do on the show.
That's not to say they're bad characters, god no. I'll pinpoint Season 3 for this: You can see a lot of character development going around for the characters that need it: Montana, Violet, Baxter, Spade, Hope, "N", all these important characters are for better or for worse, the best things about the season (oh, and Popper, gotta love Popper). There's no such thing here as an not-deliberately unlikeable character. On the show-wide side of things, the twists are more entertaining than the show for the most part, such as Midway Island and the Curses. You've got other parts of the comic which seem to take inspiration from the show, the blindsides, fake immunity idols, etc, and those are just as good.
So...final verdict? Survivor Fan Characters has a lot of work to do to become perfect, but for the moment, it's the closest you'll come to a great Survivor Fan fiction. It's interesting, greatly characterised, and wonderfully twisted. I only found it days ago, but I haven't stopped reading since. I might submit my own character some time. Who knows?
