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!

((Daniel “Danny” Brooks: Pre-Game Start.))

Danny arrived by clattering his way into the chair next to Bridgette and dropping his bag onto the table with a thunk.

“Why're you spending your lunch in here? Libraries are quiet.” Danny paused, then grinned and put on a melodramatic 'serious-guy-in-a-movie' voice. “It's quiet in here. Too quiet.”

He leaned over to peer at what Bridgette was drawing, dropping his face into his hands as he gazed at the page with fascination.

“Whatcha drawing?” he asked, without giving her a chance to answer his first question.

Danny kept staring at the picture, face still propped on his hands.

“What about a ninja? Or like a warrior person with lightning and shit going 'bzzttpewpewpew.' Or... no, no, wait! A ninja with lightning. Or one of those bearded wise dudes with the martial arts skills. Who're all like 'hwaaaaah!'” He made a kung-fu gesture and nearly smacked Bridgette in the face. “Shit, sorry. But if I'd punched your head off and you hadn't been you and instead had been, I don't know... someone villainous and muahahaha... it would have been cool. If I'd been an old man on a mountain or something. You should draw that.”

Having totally solved Bridgette's quandary on drawing ideas, he beamed at her.

He liked Bridgette. She had mad drawing skills, and she didn't shout at him, and she was smart and knew a lot of stuff. Never had time to hang out outside of school, which sucked, and made it even more perplexing that she'd spend her spare time in the library of all places, because why?

“I dunno. 'Old man on mountain' might work, but maybe, uh... yeah, monk. Or 'old kung fu guy.' Or you could Google that old man who did the kung fu teaching in Kill Bill Vol.2? Uhhhh... Pai Mei? He was cool. ...Wait, no, he was a douchebag. But a cool one. Or just look up an old man and then add some, uh... robes and shit.”

Danny's elbows slid apart until he'd moved from propping his face up with his hand to his face using the table as a pillow.

“Seriously, though, there's places to draw outside. Less silent-as-the-grave places. Can't eat in here, either. Well, you can. But you have to be sneaky.”

Shit, right. Bridgette likes quiet stuff. Danny wasn't being quiet. Chattering was the opposite of quiet. He was being loud and ruining her quiet time and their friendship. Well, the second thing was a maybe. But it felt like a very strong maybe right at that second.

He stood up in order to peer over her shoulder at the kung-fu man picture.

“Sweet leg movements. That guy could kick a giant in the face without having to jump. Yeah, that's good.” He peered at the Google results and gestured at one of the other pictures. “Oh, there's the Pai Mei dude. Check those eyebrows. Phwor.”

He sat back down, returning to propping his face on his hands.

“I'm just gon' watch. In silence, because... quiet time.”

Danny watched Bridgette draw for a while, trying his best to stay quiet. Or to not move around, because that made noise. But it was difficult. He started drumming his fingers against the table after a while, shifting around in his seat. He could draw. But he didn't like doing that while people were watching. He couldn't dance in the library, either. He could try, but he'd probably knock down a shelf.

Ughh, who could spend their time being quiet? Well, the answer was Bridgette.

But if he got up, she'd know he was bored and then she'd be like 'am I boring you' and then Danny would feel like a jerk.

He gazed at the in-progress picture of the old man. It'd be cool if he were shooting lightning out of his hands or something.

Danny was distracted from idly staring at some graffiti scraped into the desk (the contents of which were not worth repeating) when he realised Bridgette was asking him something.

“What? Oh. Uhhhhhh...”

Outfit design was not his forte.

“Put... that thing... over the other thing?” Danny scratched the back of his head, then said, “Maybe it's chilly outside. Because mountain. Layers. I dunno.”

Danny went back to observing the graffiti on the desk. Not that Bridgette's thing was boring or anything, but he'd see it when it was done. What was boring was libraries. Ughhh. He could work on some shit, but people might look at it and ask questions and be like 'your art skills suck' and fuck that. He started bouncing a little in his seat.

Then that weird Henry guy turned up. He was okay, Danny supposed. Sometimes his friends were like 'oh, that dude is weird' and Danny was all 'yeah, he's totally weird.' But whatever, people were weird in general.

"Sup. And it's a library, man. Nothing's up except, uh... y'know, books and shit."

Danny retrieved a pencil from his bag and started using it to shade over the rude graffiti on the desk, for lack of anything else to do.

Yep. Weird guy.

"Why would anyone draw spaghetti and meatballs? Unless it was a dude eating spaghetti and meatballs during some dramatic moment or something. Just take a picture of spaghetti, dude. Besides, way too many lines," Danny said.

This guy was ruining the quiet. Okay, Danny was also ruining the quiet to talk to him. But Bridgette was all about the quiet and they were fucking it up.

"Did you want something, or...?" Danny asked slowly, trying not to sound like a jerk as he said it, but at the same time what the hell did this guy want? Food? That was outside. Like, anywhere but the library.

What a weird guy.

Danny awkwardly waved good-bye as Henry hurried off. Did they look like they were dating? He couldn't date Bridgette. He'd known her since she was tiny, it'd be weird. Maybe it'd be best to hurry out of the library. Bridgette was busy, anyway, and he already had kind of a reputation for being a flirt. Which was totally unwarranted. He couldn't help it that he met a lot of cool girls. In any case, just not something he wanted to tangle Bridgette into.

"Well, libraries are super boring--no offence, Bridge--so I'm just gonna go. Show me the finished drawing thingy later, though, it looks kickass so far. All 'hwahhhhh.'"

Danny almost gave her a friendly slap on the shoulder, but stopped at the last second because he didn't want to shake her drawing hand. Instead, he waved and hurried out of the horrible void of boredom that was the library.

((Daniel 'Danny' Brooks continued in Ice Cream Truck Beat.))
