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!

Concealed from the concrete pathways by sight, tucked behind a bush that lined them – that was where Bernadette hid. No one bothered the girl curled up and completely immersed in the pages of the book in her hands. A lovely interlude between walks despite the cold; a chance to really imagine the characters and world so vividly described.

Though a thick coat and gloves protected her from the elements, there was nothing to tune out the voices of familiar faces. Slowly, she withdrew from the world of swordfights and kidnaps, tucking the book away in her pocket as she stood. It was easy to peer over the bush, but in the end Bernadette had to rely on her ears to guide her around a few bends before she very nearly walked into the back of Clarice.

Instead of looking like a complete idiot though, she decided to improvise and turn the close encounter into a hug from behind. “Hey!” she greeted with a warm smile, brightening further when she moved and saw Cassandra knelt down beside Grommit. Considering how her day had started, things were swiftly improving for the better. “Is Sunday being nice to you both?”

Clarice and Cassandra both had very good points. Sunday was, as far as Bernadette was concerned, one of the best days going. Most people preferred Saturdays, filled with activity and crowds and things to do, but Sunday was ultimately superior to her despite its immediate connection to Monday. Then again, Bernadette actually liked the beginning of the week whether it was going to be a chaotic or peaceful affair.

Laughing, she squeaked in protest intentionally at the bear hug that she received (and had entirely expected); warm, welcoming but never too tight. A subtle nod to the fact that Bernadette was not as sturdy as she wanted to be, but that it did not change things. It did not bring her down though. After the morning that she had had, this pick-me-up in the form of best friends and an adorable dog was exactly what she had needed.

Once released she, still smiling, crouched to pet Grommit whilst her eyes stayed focused on her friends. “These things all sound like the start of a really brilliant Sunday, but two things could make it better.” One hand reached into her coat and pulled out her just-started novel, whilst the other rubbed Grommit’s ear affectionately between fingers and thumb. “Either of you got time to sit indoors to pour over the worst- I mean best- that romance fiction has to offer?”
