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!

Brendan was feeling unsure when Alessio said that it was okay to him. But he wasn't going to say anything. He was only going to speak when things were cooling down more. He was a little surprised when Alessio refused Lucilly's offer of letting him use some of her money. But he wasn't going to judge. Everyone had a right to ever say yes or no to someone else's generosity. And then he watched Alessio walk away. Leaving him alone with Lucilly.

He couldn't help but stand in front of her awkwardly. He couldn't decide if he wanted to leave or not. He felt that it would be rude of him to go after Lucilly had just showed up. So he just shook his head and he offered Lucilly a small forceful smile. He glanced at his table which still had his apple on it. He then looked back at Lucilly.

"Hey, Lucilly. I hope that we didn't make you uncomfortable. Uh.... Would you like to take a seat and eat your lunch with me? I would feel like I am being rude if I would just run off and leave you alone."

Although, he did want to run away and hide in his room at home. He sat back down at his table and he picked up the apple. He turned it over a few times in his hand. But he wasn't going to take a bite out of it yet. He tilted his head slightly to look up at Lucilly. Using his other hand to pat the space beside him for her to sit down. He should get to know her more.

"Come and sit with me, Lucilly. We can talk about.... um..... whatever you want. I mean, if you want to. I don't want to be a bother if you don't want to talk to me.... Uh..."

Ugh. His nervousness was coming out and he didn't like it. His confidence was getting lower and lower. Possibly after that little drama with Alessio and Blair. Maybe he should have just stayed quiet.

That smiled died as the light of the sun at dusk, and Lucilly could only watch helplessly as her quarry escaped with nary another word of acknowledgement. Brusque, rude, but Lucilly deigned not to pass judgement. Clearly Alessio had been dealt some dearly crushing blow of spirit. As always, it was but right to let what was beyond her control fall into the judgement of those superior to herself. Others had true providence, lost only before Heaven itself. A hand carefully and deftly managed several loose pins managing the bulk of the knot in her hair, showing in full her prowess as a sewer in other circumstances. Her last pins before market, as the twins had already sequestered the remainder. She would have to be especially judicious with this last bunch.

Without missing a beat, hands still working on her hair, she considered the one young man left by her side. An especially nervous one, carrying all the energy of encounters lost and won in the past few minutes of time. By the glance at his bounty of fruit it seemed he still had yet to lose his lunch. At least someone had not. Lucilly nodded with a smile whose relaxation was far more palpable in prose. She had some words, perhaps, for his consideration.

"Of course! And I'm glad you considered me in the process. I would not have judged or thought any less of you if you'd left at that, however." A nod strong of jaw, as she took her seat beside him, carefully positioning herself so she was neither too close nor too far. Respectful of his space, yet distantly affectionate as one would expect of a friend by fellowship. "Feel free to eat. I have already eaten, I was just out here to walk a bit. It's a lovely day, I didn't want to waste it." A lovely day beaming with the blessing of light, to the point where it was almost too much. Lucilly allowed herself some freedom, rolling up the sleeves of her shirt further to expose her elbows, as was the typical limit of her humble modesty.

"You're no bother," Lucilly giggled politely, trying to reassure. "And I'm willing to talk about whatever you want to talk about, unless you insist I take the initiative! I'll warn you I'm not that good at it though." She reflected on previous discussions in friends where she had been expected to lead. "Inevitably I will discuss books, sewing, or perhaps other things less suitable." Best she exclude her religious tendencies, for the time being. With diplomatic consideration, it was fair to both parties to avoid potential subjects of offense. "You do seem nervous though. I'm sorry if what just transpired was difficult for you. I'm willing to listen, if you need to say anything." They only had a few minutes before they would be called to return to their nests, but for now Lucilly would be what she felt she needed to be. All ears.

(I don't know what to write here since Cicada Days is gone so I'll write a quick short thing)

Brendan was happy with Lucilly's company and they ended up talking about books. He was just glad that she seemed to really listen to him. She seemed like a really nice girl. They should hang out more. He glanced at his cell phone a few minutes later. It was time for him to leave to go to his next class. He packed up his things and he got up to his feet. He gave Lucilly a gentle smile.

"It was really nice to speak with you, Lucilly. We should do this another time. I'll see you later."

And with that, he left.
