Survivor: Central Hub is a fanfic series done as a Spinoff to Survivor: Fan Characters, which is itself a spinoff of Reality TV show Survivor. While done in story format as opposed to comic format, the series is known to have fairly-long episodes, averaging about thirty pages of material per episode.
The format is identical to the show. A set number of contestants (each representing a different franchise) are put into teams go against each other in challenges. The losing team votes someone out at a Tribal Council and the process continues until only one remains.
Eight seasons of Survivor: Central Hub have been completed, with a upcoming ninth season currently in development.The series can be found here, or here for the addition of cast drawings so readers will know what the characters look like.
Tropes associated with this story:
- Author Avatar: The author is the host in this series.
- Cameo: Every season, there is a guest episode around the final 6 or seven. Each guest is a canon character of the franchise the remaining fan characters represent OR another OC that happens to be related or friends with the fancharacter. Season 8 had nine of these cameo characters come back and play the game for real.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: While the series has several, Sandy from Season 1 and All Stars is obviously the biggest example in the series, and it doesn't hurt that she's one of the most-popular characters either.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Season 4 contestant Corey has an Uncle Leeroy, who is just as reckless as you'd think.
- Let Us Never Speak of This Again: Couscous, Helen, and Zita invoke this at Ponderosa after Waluigi does Waluigi Time on them.
- Loads and Loads of Characters: With around eighteen characters every season, there will indeed be a lot of different characters and personalities.
