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!

Oh man, what have I gotten myself into now?

On one hand, he had to admit this whole weapons raised back to back thing was totally badass (note to self: high five Violet later). But on the other hand, they were suddenly surrounded by people. Last time this had happened they'd sat around arguing for what felt like two months and attracted a psycho with a gun.

Just like last time (Should I even be doing it like last time if it only got us in trouble? Oh well), he scanned the crowd before making a move. There was Jessica right in front of him, he vaguely remembered her from classes and whatnot; Violet had Courtney in the same position. Then there was ummm... Jimmy something and some other guy who looked a little crazy. Great. Coming in from the other direction was...

Maddy?

She'd made it. Shit, Mike hadn't seen her since... since she'd saved his life. He began to wonder about the others he'd met that first day. He'd heard Edward Belmont's name that morning... so that one was certain. Imraan he hadn't heard of, same with Vivien... and Violet was right here behind him, threatening a classmate with a blowtorch. Right! There was a situation at hand.

"Maddy! I-"





Kzzzzzsszzzzzzkt.


Wait, what? The announcement had already played that day-


"Good afternoon, students."


No fucking way.

Mike stood stiller than he'd ever been in his life, but his mind ran fast enough to win the Daytona 500. This couldn't be right. Kwong was dead. It was a prerecording or something, they'd planned this ahead of time to scare them or whatever, there was no way someone had actually-

"As a punishment, we will now detonate a collar."

What. Fuck, this was NOT a- shit, I'm going to die!

One, Mississippi.

Two, Mississippi.

Three, Missi- ok seriously, how long do they plan on keeping us strung up like th-


"B148, Daisuke Nagazawa, eliminated."

Fuck. They'd really done it. This was- fuck.


"Vi..." This was going to sound really stupid but anything was better than this silence-

"Did you hear that?"

"I'm going, Mike. I'll get it if you don't wanna come, but I need to find her. Just to talk. That's all."

What? No. She couldn't just leave him here. Besides, who was she- wait. Liz. She wanted to find Liz Polanski.

One of the two guys started to say something, about helping out or something. If nothing else, Mike had learned one thing from the past few days- regardless of these guys' intentions, Violet was not going to respond well. He turned around and put a finger to his lips. "I got this," he mouthed.

"Violet-" He needed to say something. Not something stupid, he needed to be confident and self-assured and stuff. But he had to get her attention before she went. Before he knew it, he'd grabbed Violet's wrist- probably not a good idea in hindsight.

"Sorry." He let go- she'd stopped, but she didn't turn around. "Look, Violet- we've never been like, best of friends or anything. In fact, if we hadn't just been thrown together at the beginning I wouldn't have given you a second thought. But-" Still here. That's good.

"Well, you're kind of all I have here. I guess what I'm saying is, I want us to stick together. I know we're not supposed to be doing that or whatever because both of us aren't supposed to survive, but fuck that. You're the only friend I have here, and I don't want to die without that."

Dude, what. He sounded like the token female character in a cartoon. Time to wrap up.

"Anyway, if this Liz has actually found an answer, I'm willing to look with you. It's... it's not like we have anything to lose here."

Mike looked around. Courtney was gone, Jessica was gone... so much for the badass standoff. And Maddy... she was gone again. All that was left were these two guys, who were still awkwardly standing there mumbling about the "friendliest group" or whatever. It was definitely time to leave.

"Well, ready when you are. What's the plan, Vi?"

Just like before this whole fiasco, they were alone again. Alan and Jimmy had walked off just like the rest of the small crowd they'd just drawn, leaving nothing but Violet's words hanging in the air.

"Me and you are gonna find that girl."

Mike knew full well that doing so was going to get him killed. But then again, what wasn't going to get him killed here? It was just like he'd said before. Nothing to lose. Everything to gain, especially if it meant a chance to go home without submitting to the foul game.

Of course, that didn't mean the plan was completely without flaws, at least at this point. As far as Mike could tell, neither he nor Violet knew where to find this Liz Polanski. And even if they did, how were they going to get there without getting blown up like Nagazawa? All kinds of plots and solutions filled his head, but none seemed successful or even possible. In the announcement, Danya had made things sound as airtight as possible... well, as airtight as a security breach could get. Mike's head began to hurt, partially due to fatigue and partially due to stress. It was definitely time to leave.

"Alright, Vi. Let's get the hell out of here."

They quietly packed their things, still not completely aware of what came next for them. All they knew for sure was that they were looking for someone and that what they were looking for wasn't here. It was still something though, and knowing that was to be their one comfort as they set out for whatever the rest of the game would bring.
