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!

Some of you might remember the Questions Game thread that Solomir put up two years ago.

Well, seeing as we're nearing pregame, I felt that it might be appropriate to bring it back for our V5 characters. It always struck me as a fun way to fleshen out our characters after all.

Here are the basic rules:

Instructions:
1) Read the question asked in the most recent post.
2) Pick one of your characters and answer that question. Put the question in quote tags so we can see what the question is.
3) Ask a new question for the next person to answer. Questions can be random and silly, or be deeper and more probing. (Don't flood the thread with silly questions though)

The above-linked thread features a lot of good (and bad) examples of the kind of questions that could be asked, and how best to reply to them. Just make sure to avoid pitfalls, such as borning yes/no questions and forgetting to provide a question after answering the previous one, and this thread should go along fine.

(Also worth mentioning that its best to assume that the questions aren't being asked by an interviewer or something IC, seeing as one problem I noticed with the original thread was that some characters answers were more-or-less "I'm not answering because it's a secret".)

So, without further ado, I may as well ask the first question:


Question:
Where do you picture yourself twenty years from now?

Jack McDonald: "Hmm... with any luck, a pro tennis player, but that might be a bit of a stretch. If that fails, something in psychology."

Monica Bowman: "Always thought professional gamers were cool. Being payed to sit on your butt and play games all day sounds like my kind of life."

Maximillian Sawyer: "Run my dad's business, of course. What else?"

Question: What would you look for in a romantic partner?

What would you look for in a romantic partner?

Rachael Langdon: *grabs notepad and writes down answer. Holds answer up*: "HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WHO CAN HANDLE SPENDING TIME WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN'T TALK AND HAS TO WRITE ALL HER RESPONSES DOWN. OR SOMEONE WHO AT LEAST KNOWS HOW TO UNDERSTAND SIGN LANGUAGE."

Claire Monaghan: "Someone really cool like Humphrey Bogart, smart like Gregory Peck, sexy like young Marlon Brando, suave like Marcello Mastrioni, funny like Buster Keaton, and tough like Daniel Day Lewis."

Laura Nyquist: "Someone who doesn't mind raising someone else's baby. Also must be rich and own a beach house."

KAT TOLSTOFF: I'd be with Mila Kunis, and we'd probably spend the evening swimming, and maybe catch a movie.

ZUBIN WADIA: Commander Shepard (FemShep, naturally), and we'd be fighting the Reapers and kicking ass.

MIKE WHALEY: (Stated through ASL and oral English) Michael Jordan. Basketball. What could be better?

Question: If the first were the last and the last were the first, where would you be?

Alex- *she tilts head to the side* .... What? If the first were... the last and the last were the... first... I dunno. Still in the middle? I don't get it.

Lana- The same as everyone else. No one is the first and last of anything. :/

Miranda- Oh god, some kind of logical thing? I dunno. I'd be at the last, I think. I don't know. Don't look at me.

What was the last wacky Youtube video you saw? Describe it for us.

Jack: Oh man, that's a hard one... um... I think it was a commentary on RandomDCE. Yeah, that was it. Aaaand no one even knows who that is.

Monica: Some guy running around drunk at a Maroon 5 concert. It was actually pretty hilarious.

Maximillian: I don't really use YouTube, or the Internet much for that matter.


Question:Favorite movie?

Question:Favorite movie?
Rachael: *writes it down and holds it up* SINGIN' IN THE RAIN BECAUSE IT IS A WONDERFUL MUSICAL AND GENE KELLY IS HOT

Claire: Well gee, how do I choose? I mean, if I had to list my favorites, it would include Citizen Kane, La Dolce Vita, Seven Samurai, Suspiria, Don't Look Now, The Third Man, Persona, Ran, 8 1/2, Pulp Fiction, Persepolis, and The Day the Earth Stood Still. But if I had to pick one, probably Spirited Away. I love Miyazaki <3

Laura: I don't know really. Probably Kill Bill, just because Uma Thurman kicks ass.



If you could have only one item of clothing to wear for the rest of your life, meaning you will be nude without it, what would it be?

If you could have only one item of clothing to wear for the rest of your life, meaning you will be nude without it, what would it be?

Red: If I was forced to? A leotard. It acts as a full body piece of clothing and is difficult for an opponent to tear it off you. It is also easy to add to more ... athletic events. Is that it? Good, I was getting tired of this damned quest.... (disconnect)

Luna: Only one piece? But, that means no..... -_- ... Umm... I guess a nice dress. At least I would be fully covered......

Jack: Hmm..... what piece? I guess... my mother's fur coat... Wait... it's not as it sounds! It's just, we live in the north.... and it gets real c-cold in the w-winter! I don't want to be out nude when it's real cold out... I might freeze to death!

Question:
Let's get Psychological on this one. In the form of a nightmare that you've have, tell me your worst fear. It doesn't need to be something physical (spiders/dark) it can be a mental or social fear as well (isolation/ loss of control).
Possible V5 Characters

Jack Widdlestone- A boy with his head in the clouds and his feet in the shadows. He tries to keep with himself, but will generally make friends with the stranger people out there. Has a thing for food and fairytales.

William Tyler Folley- A shortsited, energetic boy who's interests range from magic, to pranks to 80s/90s nostalgia. Never seen without his red hat.

Luna Vanderhof An obese student who is kind and sweet despite her large exterieror. She is also rather shy and has a large appiteite. She'll join a cooking club if there is one. Or an animation club.... or a bird watching/ singing club.

Garrett: I'm in the park where I spent my 10th birthday. I'm watching everything from someone else's eyes, but I'm not sure whose at first. I'm looking at myself opening presents, and he looks happy. We eat cake and laugh and play those stupid party games we all did as kids, and everything seems normal. Then I say something that I can't even understand, but this other me, the one I'm watching, he does. He gets really angry. I try to calm him down, but he's not listening. I slowly realize that I'm watching things through the eyes of Trent, my best friend back then. This other me, he shoves and I trip, and then...

Look, I don't want to talk about this anymore. We're done today.


Alfred: Gosh, I don't really have nightmares. Dad says that nightmares are a sign of a guilty soul, and I don't have anything to be guilty about. I mean, sometimes I have this dream where I can hear Mom and Dad fighting, like they did before Mom got sick sometimes, and I think it's about me, but I wouldn't really call it a nightmare. They're just words, and like Dad said, words never hurt anybody, right?


Lee: Okay, man, you know that story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"? It was written by that guy Ellison, it's a neat little sci-fi piece, you should check it out sometime. But anyway, that's my nightmare right there. Not the whole "Crazy AI playing with your head" shit, but that ending where the dude needs to scream but doesn't have a mouth anymore. See, in this dream I've figured out something big, like life or death big. It changes each time, and it's been everything from knowing a friend is going to die to preventing some huge-ass war. Here's the kicker though: Everything goes right for a little bit. People let me talk to whoever I need to, and I'm all set up to come through in the eleventh hour, you know? Then things go wrong. This person I'm supposed to talk to shows up, and I'm already to just spill the whole thing and get to fixing stuff when my lips won't move. I can feel my jaw straining against my skin, but my mouth isn't opening. I reach up, and my mouth is completely sealed over, like it was never even there. Just skin, you know? I look back up, and this person is gone too, never to be seen again.

Trippy shit, man. Taught me to watch what I eat before bed, heh.


Question:
How important is education, really?

Alina: Uh, yah, I mean I t'ink I'm afraid of, ya know, drowning. Dis one time, when I was fourtin', we were visiting' Gran Gran back down in Nawlins, she had just moved up to Waveland since she wanted to get out of the city after Katrina, and we were at the beach, you know. I kinda got caught in one of dose undertows, and it took me a while to get back to land. I mean, I wassin' hurt or nuthin', but it was really scary cause my legs were kickin' and I wassin goin' anywhere...

Angeline: Uh...I dunno, man, I haven't really been afraid of much, and let me tell you, when you've been through what I have, you become a lot less afraid of the small stuff. I can't really think of anything I'm afraid of. Sorry 'bout that.

Jasper: No comment.

Tessa: Oh my god my worst fear, you totally know what that is right, it's like if I was to like take all these exams, you know all those exams we gotta do before we graduate and stuff, but the worst thing that could happen happened like if I forgot everything! Like I know they probably won't be the end of everything but I work so hard man, it'd just totally suck to not do the best, y'know!

And because Doc is a sneaky ninja:

Question:

Alina: I don't really think it's dat important, cause we gotta be happy for us to live our lives to the best.

Angeline: It's okay, I guess.

Jasper: *shrugs*

Tessa: It is the most important thing right now! I mean, we only get one high school, and we don't wanna screw it up! We gotta learn, we gotta know everything so we can make the most of what we have, come on!

Casey: Around the world. London, Moscow, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Cape Town, those salt flats in Bolivia...Throw a few good conventions in there...Man, two weeks is not nearly enough. I'd get as far as I could, though.

Harvey: Something fun? Get a bunch of friends, maybe some family, maybe some guys I haven't seen in forever, and head out to a beach or island somewhere. We could have camp outs and all that kind of stuff.

Mia: Uh...I'd guess I'd go to New York first and check out Broadway. Then to West End. While I'm in Europe, I might as well hit Paris and Milan, right? Maybe Rome too, if I have the time.


QUESTION: If you were to turn into any animal, which one would you want it to be?
Version 4 Character:
Simon Fletcher (B104): Dead at The Sawmill

Casey Malkovich (G037): Dead at The Farmhouse

Sean: *answering without a moment of hesitation* Crow! Crow crow crow CROW!

Jessica: Definitely a cat. If I got to live like our cats do, my daily life would consist of walking around like I own the house, demanding to be fed, actually getting fed, and sleeping lazily in sunbeams. Yes, please.

Cody: That is the stupidest... fine, fine. I'd be a horse. Not one of those wimpy miniature shits, I'd be a fucking draft horse. Do you see all the muscles on them?

Alex- Ooooooh. I could say a lot of stuff! But it's gotta be something important that I'll need. I'd say... hm, how about a guidebook to the place?

Lana- ... Why only one possession? Why can't I bring all my things? Can't I just take the rest of the things with... nevermind. I guess my plush bat, then.

Miranda- A pair of shades, just so I can at least look cool in the foreign place? I don't know.
