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!

((Clarice Halwood: Pre-Game Start.))

Second run today. Sundays were the best day for cramming in a good, long run. Clarice always ran in the mornings, so early that the sun was usually barely visible at that point, but if there was time in the afternoon she was going to go for it. It helped Grommit get all his extra energy out, anyway.

She'd jogged for the last half-hour, but now that they'd reached Liberty Park it was time for Grommit to sniff everything. Who could deny him that privilege? So now Clarice had slowed down to a walk, plastic bag in her waistpack and ready to clean up the mess if he decided to go number twosies, while Grommit sniffed at each tree they passed by.

Grommit was a big dog, and he tended to scare people. A large, stocky pitbull with light fur and part of his ear missing, as well as some scars. Clarice had picked him up from a shelter over a year ago. He was a sweet boy, but people saw the muscle and the scars and tended to carefully avoid him. Or run in the other direction. Clarice supposed the fact that she was the one holding the leash didn't help.

Babies. Didn't matter much. Grommit was pretty shy around people unless he knew them well, so he wasn't likely to escape from his leash to slobber on someone's face.

While Grommit stopped to examine another tree, Clarice removed her bottle of water from her waistpack. She kept bouncing on the spot whenever they stopped for too long. Stupid winter. Not that it was, like... 'cold' cold, but it was kind of cold. Stupid tank top. She should have at least worn a proper t-shirt.

“Come on, Grommit. It's too cold to stay still,” she mumbled under her breath, though she made sure not to take too much of a tone with him. Didn't want him to think he'd actually done something wrong. She took another swig of water as she waited.

Clarice beamed and waved at Cass as they approached, a movement that was so energetic it might have proved fatal to someone who'd gotten their face too close to her hand.

Cass was cool. Nice to talk to, into romance novels, and goddamn did they paint the coolest paintings. All that detail and everything, phwoar. Enough to make Clarice a little jealous in a purely amiable way. She could film, but she couldn't create scenes from whole cloth like that.

Clarice would have normally warded people off approaching Grommit too fast. He wasn't vicious, by any means, but sometimes he got kind of skittish around strangers. Cass was fine, though, Grommit knew them well enough to be friendly. He wagged his tail happily as Cass scratched his ears.

“He can't get enough of it. Once robots progress enough that every household owns one we'll have to program one to walk him twenty-four hours a day, and even then he'll probably still whine once the robots needs to be recharged.

“But anyway, how's stuff? Bike riding?”

“Robots probably would lack a little something-something, wouldn't they? They don't smell like humans do. Dogs are way into the smell.”

Clarice watched Cass pat Grommit some more. Anyone who liked dogs, or animals in general, automatically got a higher level of respect from her. Because who the fuck hated dogs? Jackasses, that was who.

Clarice grinned. “Nothing wrong with that. Only so many sacrifices one can make in the name of physical perfection and all that. Long as you're keeping a balance, right?” Clarice preferred to keep her current weight rather than change it. She was about as heavy as she could be without having to move up a weight class in wrestling, and she liked to keep it that way.

“If there are ever sentient robots, I hope that's the purpose they were made for. Instead of, you know... war and that crap.”

Clarice was abruptly tackled from behind by Bernadette, making this an even better day. One of Clarice's best buddies since middle school, bonding over romance novels and an intolerance for bullies being jackasses.

“Bernie!” Clarice turned to return the hug, briefly transforming it into a bear hug before putting Bernadette down. Grommit also looked happy. Lots of people he knew made a happy pup.

“When is Sunday ever bad?” Clarice started bouncing a little on the spot again. Bernadette's thick coat had reminded her of how cold it was.

The worst or best? Either way, that had appeal. The bad romance novels were hilarious (and had their own charm.) The best ones… well, they were the best. It was a win either way.

“If it's an indoors place that'll accept pitbulls hanging around, sure. Promise he won't whizz all over the place. If not, I'll have to run home first. But either way, fuck yes, I am all over it. I'm running out of reading material.”

Clarice grinned as she bounced around on the balls of her feet. It was getting too cold out, anyway. Plus, when was she going to pass up the chance to hang with friends?
