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!

Lucilly Peterson: Pregame Start
((Continued from Yea, We Did Put All Our Seeds Into The Earth))

The sun beat upon the brows of the children of the Earth, so it came to pass, and so Lucilly passed Blair as she returned to the core of their institution, their lives, the school, while Lucilly continued by.

She sought a moment of respite, and was granted it in a quiet moment of walking meditation following taking her lunch. A premade meal from home, bounty borne from the freezer section of the local Safeway and prepared watchfully by her mother. Fettuccine Alfredo, creamy and wholesome. The taste still lingered, even as her pale skin quailed under the stern gaze of the sun. Thus it was that she rolled up the sleeves of her cotton long sleeve, a forest green and modestly thick as was proper.

Her eyes first found two young men, one large, one small, one boldly manly and one dashingly nondescript. Her eyes would refract gracefully in the sun as she briefly looked at each of them in turn, meeting eyes as was polite. After her notice immediately found a mess of foodstuffs, no longer especially nice to behold, spilled upon the ground. A bountiful harvest, wasted. Or perhaps to be returned to the fauna of the wild, or to the soil of the earth. Who knew how it was ordained, how it was planned? But Lucilly was curious, and she would ask the boys, who she only knew in passing, by name and no more.

"Hi Brendan, Alesso." Lucilly could perhaps tell that there was a foul mood, a miasma amongst those she addressed. To some extent she saw storms in their eyebrows. She would carry herself no differently, but kept a watchful eye for the peace. "Did one of you guys lose your lunch? Quite a mess." Obvious, but reiteration was a tool as potent as any other in the pursuit of justice.

Ah, there were some places man should never have tread, and here would be one of them. Lucilly knew the vague pang of regret for having even spoken, but it would only last for the moment and no more. Before her was the judge and judged, and neither carried themselves in a way especially hospitable. In one sense or another. Lucilly continued to smile with ease of politeness, her demeanor eternal as the sun's sometimes unwelcome passage through the sky.

"I see, I'm sorry." A statement as vague as it was intended to be diplomatic. Lucilly would not allow herself any opportunity to pass judgement onto either boy, that was not her providence. The less she knew the better, a rare case where ignorance was perhaps truly bliss. If there was no wish from the offended parties to speak, she would allow them respite as the lambs of the earth. It seemed Brendan was extending the olive branch of his own accord anyways. She did however, feel a charitable compulsion to aid, as was within her providence. She allowed his issuance of apology, with a slight nod in unconscious acknowledgement of his attempts, and then spoke up in turn:

"Nobody should go without a lunch, in my opinion. We do have a few periods left to clear." As important and venerated as schooling was to her, Lucilly acknowledged that it was not always the most favorite of her peer's institutions. "I brought my lunch from home today so I have my usual lunch money to spare. If you want."

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.
