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!

((Samya Franklin continued from Eep.))

Lost. Samya was lost, separated from Zach, confused and upset and so very alone. She'd missed the rescue attempt, but, from the sound of things, that had been for the best, had saved her life. Zach was still here too, so all hope was not lost. She just had to find him once more. Find him and never let him slip away again. He couldn't leave her. Not after everyone else.

And everyone else was truly gone. Melissa was dead, murdered by Nick Reid, who had in turn been killed. Aislyn had died a long time ago, and Vivien too. Felicia had gotten herself involved in the whole escape mess, and had perished there. Claire was still out there somewhere, maybe, but Samya had no idea where. Zach was the one she could hope to reunite with. It had happened before. He'd be able to take care of himself. Better than she'd been able to manage so far, at the very least. He'd hopefully be near here, somewhere.

She still had her weapon, at the very least, the weapon she didn't really know what to do with. She was still hoping she could use it in defense if it came to that. She was still hoping it wouldn't.

And now she was at the cliffs, at the edge of the island, hoping to gain a little perspective, to maybe see someone or something she could recognize, or at least to get some time alone, but instead there was a figure there. She blinked, and she got her weapon out, but didn't point it yet. Couldn't be too safe, but wanton aggression? That just wasn't her.

The girl had gotten her gun out. That was because Samya had realized that she just couldn't do it. She couldn't hurt someone who hadn't absolutely and completely shown that they were trying to kill her. That was the only reason the other girl had had time to draw her weapon: there was no time pressure at all. Just as Reiko's gun leveled at her, so too did Samya's lower, pointing at the ground. Even though she could recognize this girl now, even though she had a pretty good idea of what she'd done, she couldn't live with blowing her away as a preemptive measure.

"Stupid?" she said. "Nah, not me, Reiko. I just want to find my friend. Zach Jamis. I thought he might be here, but I guess not. I can go, if you want. No reason we have to have problems."

Yeah, that was how to handle it. Lay things out nice and simply, and then disengage. Had Zach been around, maybe she'd have had some more courage, been able to stare Reiko in the face and demand that she be the one to go, but, really, that bravado would've just gotten everyone killed. No, no, she wouldn't have been so rash, Zach or no. She didn't want trouble, didn't want a fight. She just wanted to make it out of this alive.

This? This game, this day, this encounter. All of those things. She wasn't going to get shot here. Not if she could help it. She just hoped Reiko could see reason.

She was just about to take the chocolate. Just about to sit down and maybe make some peace for a change. It'd be nice. One last little treat before everything went wrong again. But of course, someone had to come along and ruin it.

Of course, Samya didn't mind in the slightest, given who it was.

It was Zach. She'd lost him, thought she might never see him again, but somehow he had caught up with her. He was here, and he was with her, and he was... he was standing in front of someone who had killed a whole lot of people. It was one thing for Samya to say she wouldn't throw the first blow, to accept that she might die, but it'd be a whole other story to let Zach get killed for her.

"Hey," she said. "It's okay. I'm sure she was't doing anything like that, right?"

Of course, she couldn't be sure of that. She just wanted things to stay alright, though. She wanted everything to be okay, just for a little while longer. She made sure she was still holding her gun, made sure she could snap it up if she had to. Just in case.

"Hey," Samya said. "Hey, let's all calm down here."

What was Zach doing? Was he trying to cause trouble and get killed? Surely he wouldn't have given up. Not Zach. No, he had to have some angle here. He had to have a goal in antagonizing Reiko.

It clicked. He was trying to protect Samya. He was doing this so that, if Reiko really was dangerous, she would go after him instead of Samya. That was sweet of him. He was keeping her safe, and he was also making wise tactical choices. Samya was better armed. She could actually do something about it if Reiko snapped and started shooting. She had a gun. She was close to the other girl. She could probably do a lot of damage from here.

There was absolutely no reason for it to come to that, though. She didn't want to die, didn't want to see Zach die, didn't even want to see Reiko die.

"Come on, Zach," she said. "We can just go. We can stop bothering her and go."

It all fell together. No one died. No one fought. She was with Zach, and maybe, just maybe, it could still be okay.

With the crisis averted, Samya followed Zach away from the cliffs.
