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!

((Reiko Ishida continued from Coming Home))

Perched near the edge of the cliff face, Reiko sat, feeling the ocean as it thumped against the rocks below. She broke off a little block of chocolate before wrapping the rest of it and secreting it away in her bag again. She let it slowly melt in her mouth, sugar was something she'd sorely missed over the past week, but Sarah's supply had returned access to her.

It had only been for a day, but Reiko was happy that she'd been able to spend time with Sarah again. To know that she hadn't quite lost everything, that someone still loved her despite all the damage she'd done...

Unfortunately nothing that good could last, and now she was on her own again. Alone, on this island, while Sarah was safe. Somewhere miles away, beyond the horizon, her girlfriend was probably being fed and treated. And Bridget was probably keeping her company, making sure she didn't do anything stupid... Like try to steal a boat and come back to get her.

Reiko smiled at the thought. She wouldn't put it past her.

The last announcement had come and passed, with a new man behind the speakers. He listed off all the dead, including Sarah and Bridget, supposedly having died in the escape attempt. She would have been worried, but Reiko knew bull shit when she heard it. They were just covering their asses, trying not to let slip that they'd lost, for once.

Still, she would have been lying if she pretended hearing their names didn't get to her a bit. The announcement probably should have created a little bit of doubt. But somehow she knew that Sarah was still alive. Call it a hunch, or intuition, or whatever, but Sarah Xu was still alive. Reiko was certain of that.

For a few moments she focused on listening to the waves crashing on the rocks below. It was nice that amid all the chaos, she was able to find a moment of peace. A moment to reflect on her many past mistakes, and to prepare herself for future ones. She may have been clinging to the idea of 'self-defense' before, but no more. There would be no more excuses on her end. If she was condemned to stay on this island, then she wasn't going to roll over and die just so some other asshole could go home.

Reiko would fight, she would do whatever it took to survive, and she would get the fuck off this island. If that meant she would have to win, then so be it. She would tear down every last person left to be with her Sarah again, and nothing was going to stop her short of death, she'd make sure of that.

Reiko Ishida was back in the game, whatever that meant.

Reiko continued to stare out into the water in front of her, in no real rush to go anywhere. With her luck she wouldn't even need to go anywhere before someone showed up and attacked her or something. Even her own girlfriend had met her by pointing a rifle at her. So it didn't surprise her too much when she heard rustling behind her. The smaller girl glanced behind her back, seeing one of the girls she didn't recognize holding a gun.

Reiko didn't wait for long, turning her cross-legged sitting position into a kneel, facing the new girl. Her hand shot to the grip of the pistol tucked in behind her belt, removing it and holding it in two hands. She didn't point it at her just yet, since she didn't seem to be hostile. There was no telling how long that would last though. Reiko had a way of having things turn violent on her.

So, now what? Reiko stared at the other girl, waiting for her to move, not saying a word. A part of her just wanted to embrace the darker side of this game, to just point her gun and shoot the girl, get it over with and move on. Something stopped her from doing this though. She knew her goal was survival, so she could be back with Sarah. She also knew if she survived by wantonly killing everything in sight, Sarah would never forgive her. So really, the only way she was getting out of this would be if the other girl attacked first.

Reiko lifted her gun, aiming it at the girl, but keeping her finger off the trigger. "I suggest you don' try to do anything too stupid right now." Yeah, she wasn't very good at sounding threatening, but it's not like she didn't have the 'cred' so to speak to back it up.

Reiko stayed in her position for a moment, before finally lowering her weapon. In another time, she may have shot, but now, now wasn't the time. She couldn't bring herself to kill someone who wasn't going to fight back. It just didn't feel right. The girl shoved her weapon back into behind her in her belt, reverting to her cross-legged position, only this time facing her company.

"You can go or stay. Just don't cause me problems and I won't cause you any." Reiko said finally, moving her eyes off the girl and onto her bag. Pulling it's bulk over to herself, she pulled out the chocolate she was eating from before, zipping the bag up after doing so. Breaking off another piece, she popped it in her mouth, looking back at the other girl.

"Chocolate?" Reiko offered. She wasn't entirely sure why she did, because chances were no one would take her up on her offer at the best of times. Even still, she felt like she needed to do something to prove she had no intention of harming her. Not right now. She didn't want to do something to hurt Sarah this quickly after leaving her.

Someone else arrived on the scene, someone who was familiar with her present company it seemed. He also accused her of poisoning the chocolate or some shit like that. She wasn't that subtle. If she'd wanted to kill someone, she wasn't going to waste time trying to befriend them. Reiko shrugged, breaking off another piece of chocolate and eating it.

"Suit yourself." the small girl said through the mouthful of chocolate. She kept her eyes on the others, making sure she kept herself ready for anything. Making mental note of the locations of her weapons, Reiko simply sat in place. She would be ready if they decided suddenly that having superior numbers would make for a good chance to try and overpower her.

Her focus shifted between the two, eventually landing on the male. He was the one she needed to worry about. If anything was going to go down, he'd be the one to start it. Reiko's hand strayed to the nailboard, resting lightly on it. She made no other moves, but even just that small movement would hopefully be enough to send the message. She didn't want a fight, but she wasn't going to go down quietly either.

Reiko sat in silence during the boy's little tirade, calling her "Gacy-chan". She had no idea who or what he was referring to, though the "chan" part was a painfully obvious attempt to provoke her. The more he talked the more it did seem like a good idea for her to just get rid of him. No one would really miss him, especially if this was how he was all the time. At the same time it wasn't in her best interest to go all slasher villain either.

The girl spoke up before she got a chance to say anything, which was probably a good thing. She also made the most sense right now, suggestion they left. It worked for Reiko. More time stuck here with these two was less time she had to do other things. The chocolate went back into her bag, which she hoisted on her shoulder. She grabbed the nailboard in her hand, standing up. Once again her focus shifted between them.

"I suggest you listen to your friend." Reiko said, her eyes clearly settling back to the boy. "Unless you'd rather I force my way through."

Finally the two of them were leaving. Or at least one of them was. Since they probably weren't going to suddenly stop her from leaving as well, Reiko figured it was time for her to move on as well. She had spent enough time there already. It was time for her to move on as well.

Reiko collected her bag, swinging it's bulk around her shoulders. Holding her nailboard in her hand still, she walked in the opposite direction that the boy went, not really sure where she intended to go. Not like she ever planned these things in advance.

((Reiko Ishida continued in Out of Sight, Out of Mind))
