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!

Evelyn silently trailed after Thea, lightly chewing on her bottom lip. She didn't know what to say. How do you comfort someone who'd lost their boyfriend? After the announcement, she had offered what sympathy and comfort she could but it was starting to sound hollow. Words were not going to bring James back. Oh, James...

Poor James. Poor overly polite, slightly doofy James. He had been such an unlikely pick for a cheerleader's boyfriend but Thea had really loved him. He hadn't deserved to die, especially at the hand of a skank like Hayley. It wasn't right. It wasn't fair. James had so much more potential, so much more to give to the world. Hayley had robbed him all that time, all of that potential. And more importantly, she had robbed Thea of her happiness.

Thea stopped and leaned against a tree with Evelyn stopping a few steps behind her to give her privacy but be close enough if assistance was required. The straps of the bags were starting to bite into her shoulders now that they had stopped walking. She tried to discreetly adjust them, her face screwed up as straps on one of the bags pulled her hair. She must not have been successful since Thea turned to her and asked for James' bag.

Scurrying over, Evelyn dumped the other two bags before carefully placing James' bag at Thea's feet. Dropping to her knees, she sat back on her heels while quietly waiting to see what Thea was going to do next. It was important to be as supportive to Thea as possible, since Thea had been taking care of her up til now.

Jason stood and yammered at her, but Evelyn’s attention was focused on Thea and Alex. And, of course, Charlene. Leave it to Charlene to shoehorn her way into a situation where a guy is. Although, ugh…

Evelyn grimaced as she glanced over at Alex’s stump. There hadn’t been a lot to recommend him before and there was even less of it now. She couldn’t make out exactly what the one-armed boy was saying to Thea, who wasn’t even trying to hide her tears. As she watched Thea go through James’ bag, a new thought occurred to her. What would she do if the situations were reversed?

What would she do it if she had to sit and sift Nik’s belongings because someone had killed him? What would she do if she never got the chance to tell Nik how much she loved him because someone else had taken him away forever?

As the mental scenario unfurled in her mind, Evelyn’s breathing began to speed until she was practically panting. She felt like she was suffocating. Everything was pressing in on her, especially Jason who wouldn’t stop talking!

Waving him off, she walked into the trees a bit. She didn’t even notice that she did not have her bag. Evelyn focused on putting one foot in front of the other. She would just take a walk and calm herself down. Walk to that tree over there and back to get herself under control. Thea had enough to deal with without her going to pieces on her.

However, when she reached her initial target, she was no calmer than when she started. Picking another target, she quickly started walking in its direction, fully intending on turning around and heading back once she got there.

Evelyn zeroed in on her footsteps, every bit of her attention focused on putting one foot in front of the other. If she could just occupy her mind with the walking, she would stop picturing herself in Thea’s place. Focus on the footsteps. STOP PICURING NIK DEAD! Just…watch where you put your foot. Keep it balanced. Heel, toe. Heel, toe.

She never even noticed when the others disappeared from view completely.
