Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

[[Celeste Beaumont, G042, start.]]

The first thing Celeste had done, upon reaching full awareness, was freak the hell out. She'd started shaking violently, hugging herself, pulling hair a bit...her under-arms were damp from sweat, and now she had two hideous dark spots under her arms...That's lady-like, she'd snorted when she'd calmed down a little.

It just couldn't be happening...this never happened to her, it only happened to other people. SOTF wasn't really real, it was just...just something that no one really went through, other people, people who you really couldn't care about because you didn't even know them. Hell, they didn't even exist because you didn't know and you didn't care. It wasn't supposed to happen to you! "Son of a bitch!" Celeste cried out, voice high-pitched, squeaky, a sharp contrast to the actual words--she sounded completely ridiculous.

Now what was she supposed to do? She couldn't stay in one spot--certainly not for long, she'd get killed. One way or another. Wait...Weapons. We got a weapon, she thought desperately, unzipping her duffel. She pawed through the items inside, tossing the bread and crackers out, shoving the first aid kit aside, and found...a sledgehammer. A fucking sledgehammer! "How in the hell am I...?" she asked out loud, slowly pulling the thing out and letting it fall on the ground in front of her. Shoving the other items back in the bag haphazardly, Celeste stared angrily at the weapon. It was a useful thing, yes, but...it was heavy! And almost as big as she was! How was she supposed to kill with that if she couldn't even lift and carry it easily? "Maybe I'll get lucky and trip someone with it...and they'll break their neck," she muttered darkly, rezipping the bag and slinging it over her shoulder. She stood up, bending down to try and lift the sledgehammer--she managed to lift it, though it was difficult, and balance it over her other shoulder. That shoulder was already a bit sore, and she'd have to alternate shoulders every...what, three minutes?...but it was easier to carry this way at least.

The dark-haired girl's head suddenly snapped up, hearing shouting nearby. Head for the voices. Stick with a group...that or kill them and get their weapons, Celeste thought to herself, slowly shuffling towards the sounds. Either way, she should probably alert them that she was there--sneaking up on someone in this situation would only result in getting her head blown off, or her heart shot with an arrow, or whatever. Like wild animals--nobody could be startled. "HEY!" she shouted out to them. "HEY, WHO'S OUT THERE? ANYONE OKAY?"

Nobody was shooting at her at least. Celeste adjusted the hammer on her shoulder, shuffling closer to the group. As she came a little bit closer, she could see a girl--Lucky bitch got a sword!? she thought in shock--and two guys. From where she stood, neither male looked happy to see others...the girl, she had no clue about.

But even if they were less than enthusiastic about seeing her, again, at least no one shot her and sliced her open. Celeste frowned a little--briefly considering swinging the hammer, but decided against it. She was outnumbered, and no one had done anything to her yet. And she'd be much safer in a group than by herself, even if she did swap weapons.

"I don't want anything..." she called out again, switching the sledgehammer to her other shoulder. It was starting to ache. "I just thought I'd find people--civilization, whatever you wanna call it. Safety in numbers, girls being supposedly weaker sex, all that crap...I don't want to die, so why not find people who don't want to, either?"

The word "baby-sitting" made Celeste visibly bristle, though the rest of that statement pissed her off too. But that one part of that one word--baby...Dear God, it pissed her off! And now he was...What, 'cause he's a big man he thinks he can't have a couple girls hang around him? Is that it? Damn it, I thought guys wanted to protect girls! It was lucky that the other girl spoke up to defend herself, because it meant Celeste wouldn't have to say anything herself...and she didn't think she could speak to the guy without letting out a few swears and pissing him off. Well, pissing him off further, from the looks of him and the tone of voice.

"What she said," she settled for grumbling instead, lowering her head a bit and glaring at the more confident boy, attempting a Kubrick Stare. Her hand tightened on the handle of her sledgehammer--out of her anger, only a childish desire to use it, like to smack a tree or the ground. The other boy, his damn floundering, pissed her off too...didn't know, did he? Asshat. "What, you don't want girls around you--you'll be our baby-sitters and we wouldn't do jack-shit to defend ourselves? I just said i didn't wanna die--which means I'd fucking use this thing if I have to, okay?! I'm not gonna just...just sit around and--UGH!" Celeste shook, stopping in her little rant...why even bother with these two? Maybe the girl would be more willing to have a traveling companion.

Yeah, that sounded better--ditch the jerks and go with the girl. "I just want to have someone with me for a while...Least til I find my boyfriend, then if I piss you off, you can leave." John... Celeste didn't want to admit it, but she felt a sick feeling in her stomach at the thought of him. He hadn't seemed very athletic--except in the bedroom, but hey, who wasn't? She only hoped that he'd gotten a better weapon than she had. Shaking her head, she turned her attention to Kayla, still glaring somewhat. "You'll walk with me, right? uhm...Person?"

Weeell, perfect. Absolutely perfect. The two boys just walked off, leaving Celeste and the other girl all by themselves. Sure, with weapons, but still! Celeste gave the finger to their retreating backsides, switching her sledge-hammer to the other shoulder. "Assholes," she spat, shaking her head.

At least the other girl, Kayla, wasn't going to leave Celeste for the wolves--students...whatever. Celeste saw the other girl give her a nod before turning and walking off in another direction. She took that to mean that it was okay for her to follow the other. "Hey, thanks," Celeste called out, walking after Kayla. Probably didn't hear me, though...I'll say it again later, she told herself.

[[Celeste Beaumont continued elsewhere]]
