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!

((Cass Prince: existed with some small amount of love))

"Whenever I'm alone with you, you make me feel like I'm home again..." Cass quietly sang along to the song playing over their earbuds as they walked through the park. Ever since they were a kid, Cass's Sunday bike rides had followed the same basic outline. Cass would bike to a convenience store a couple miles away, get a snack, enjoy it in Liberty Park, then go home. Good, consistent exercise, and Cass got to have tasty things. Fun times all around.

Cass had just finished tossing their lemonade can and doughnut wrapper in the trash when they spotted Clarice out on a walk with Grommit. Cass smiled and raised a hand in greeting as they walked over. Seeing Clarice always gave Cass a slight urge to start exercising more. Like damn, fitness goals, right there. Girl was built.

Clarice's incredible exuberance and argumentative tendencies seemed to clash deeply with Cass's more quiet nature, but they didn't mind at all; considering her to be a fairly close friend. In general, Cass found it relaxing to hang out with talkative people - it lessened the burden of conversation, allowing Cass to spend more time being a good listener. Their mutual love of romance stories certainly helped as well.

"Looks like he's enjoying the fresh air." They said as they gave Grommit a few scritches behind the ears. Big and battle-scarred he may be, but all pups given proper training were good pups, and Cass couldn't think of a better owner for him than Clarice. They suited each other, even on an aesthetic level, though Cass would never say that out loud.

"Nah, if anything he'd whine because he's missing you. It's no fun to yank a robot around, I'd bet." Cass said. 'It'd be one hell of a robot that could match your strength, anyway.' Cass almost said, but didn't. That would be rude, and they chastised themself for even thinking it.

From their romance talks, Cass knew that Clarice wasn't exactly always comfortable with their build. Cass thought that was very silly, (who wouldn't want to be literally swept off their feet?) but for the most part kept that to themself. Silly or not, that was Clarice's opinion, and who was Cass to presume that they knew better than Clarice herself did?

Grommit was happy, at least. A happy pup. The world would be a better place if all pups were happy pups. That was Cass's highly sophisticated and nuanced opinion on animals. Cass's mom was, unfortunately, allergic to furry creatures of all dispositions, so Cass had to get their dog fix in whenever they could. They gave Grommit a couple more pats on the head with a smile before turning back to Clarice.

"Yep. Went to get some fresh air and buy a snack while I'm at it. That probably cancels out the calories burned from biking, but oh well, I guess." Cass shrugged. Hardcore exercise wasn't really the point of the expedition, anyway.

"Maybe it'd spark some kind of perfume-ish arms race. Companies compete to produce the most realistic-smelling robots to gain the approval of pups everywhere." The only acceptable type of arms race, and thus the only one that would likely never exist. Sad. Cass would like to live in that future. It sounded like a nice place.

That vision of utopia was interrupted when a wild Bernadette appeared, sneak-hugging Clarice. Cass was quietly grateful for her choice of target. Sudden, unexpected touches always unnerved, even from friends. Regardless of all that, Cass smiled and said a quiet "Hello!", getting back to their feet, much to Grommit's sorrow.

Bernadette had been a close friend ever since Cass had met them in Freshman art class, and was one of the very few people in the school that Cass had outed themselves to. She was also the third member in Cass and Clarice's trio of hopeless romantics.

Cass gave a slight nod in response to her question. "There are snacks to eat and dogs to pet. All the signs point to 'yes'."

Cass faked a grimace when Bernie produced the novel from her coat. "I don't know, I think I still need a bit of time to recover from the last you introduced us to." After a moment, Cass laughed, a smile coming back to their face. "Kidding. I swear, you've got a talent for finding these things. I'm game."

It looked like it was going to be a lovely day.

((cass will have a problem.))
