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!

(Lizzie Luz continued from Luz Interpretation.

Of course, as soon as she left the house, she took off the coat and folded it over one arm, because the morning was far hotter than she expected and she and Scarlett were both drenched in sweat.

And Lizzie was grinning.

She loved this feeling--the sauna-like sensation of heat nearly overwhelming her senses. It made every exertion more sweet, made her muscles feel rubbery with potential tiredness. She kept cheerfully correcting Scarlett's piss-poor Spanish as they walked.

"Oh, it's not that bad!" Lizzie cajoled, since Scarlett was starting to look a little down. "It's just that you don't have practice. Your tenses are all over the place. It's like listening to a computer. You don't have any nuance." She paused, then added, "Also, maybe take what I say with a grain of salt, okay? It's only my grandpa who speaks Spanish. The rest of us learned from him."

Lessons? Lizzie frowned. "What, like tutoring?" she asked. She felt suddenly very uncomfortable. There was a reason she shied away from clubs and obligations. They made her feel trapped and tethered, claustrophobic with all the places she couldn't do because someone made some new claim on her.

But Scarlett was her friend, and she didn't want to upset her. "That's not really my bag, Lettie. I don't mind...this." She gestured between them and made a talking mouth with her right hand. "Like, helping you practice? That's fine. But that would be, uh..." She shrugged and felt lame and shamed. "I don't even think I'd be any good."

Lizzie smiled. "That would be much more better, Lettie," she said. "We can practice anytime." She stretched, rolling her neck on her shoulders. "You going to this dance thing?"

"Hell yeah," Lizzie said. "Chance to put the other foot on the...shoe..." She trailed off, blinking. "That ain't right," she muttered, scratching at her short hair. "Shit."

She shook her head and said, "I dunno. No one really springs to mind? A lot of my guy friends already have people taking them. I...think Junko's having some kinda anti-party? Not sure what that means, but there's gonna be a bonnnnnnnfire!" She half-sang the last word, grinning. "Maybe I'll hit both. Be anti-anti." She nudged Lettie with a shoulder. "How'sabout we ride stag together? Hit both parties like boss bitches?"

"Oh." Lizzie cleared her throat, studying her friend. "Uh...yeah."

Christ, emotional issues like this made her feel twitchy. She could feel the soles of her feet itching, her ankles aching with the urge to run. How did you let yourself get trapped in-

No, no. Focus.

"Yeah," she said again. "You, uh...you doin' okay?"

Completely over? That...that seemed like a lie. Like a real lie. Did you bring someone up when you were completely over them? Didn't you just kinda forget about them?

But hey, if Lettie wanted to pretend things were okay, who was Lizzie to judge?

"I'd guess a lot of girls?" Lizzie said. "Dunno." They had made it into town proper now, winding their way through flat streets. "We, uh...we close?"
