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!

((Kizi continued from Not Quite the Zeitgeist.))

Kizi was always one of the first out of the building, unless she had to stay behind to discuss some schoolwork, or one of her friends she was mid-conversation with was taking slightly longer, or she belatedly realised she had messed up her organisational priorities and had left one of her textbooks out for too long, or was in a classroom a fair walk away from the exit to the grounds...

In hindsight, that was quite an unverifiable generalisation. Extenuating factors aside, she was usually out of the building before a majority of her peers.

There. That was a far more valid statement.

She broke away from the crowd first opportunity she got, walking off in a slightly different direction from the bulk of the student body, taking a slightly eccentric angle across the grounds. She was never bothered with the heat of the sun. She was far more adept with the heat than the cold, but at least when it was too cold you could put more layers on. No similarly easy solution with the heat. Luckily it was nowhere near that level.

She spotted Jasmine, and waved, and began making her way over. Was that Jasmine? She couldn't tell at this distance, and her wave stopped mid-swing as she hesitated. She took another step forward. Yep. Definitely Jasmine.

Yep.

Definitely definitely Jasmine. That split second before Jasmine had processed her own presence was enough for the doubts to set back in again. That was a relief. She broke into a wide smile, as she usually did, when she broke into a purposeful walk towards one of her friends. It was always good to see someone happy to see her. Not that that was a rare occurrence (although, she hastened to add to her mental train of thought, for the sake of modesty, it wasn't ubiquitous), but it was still nice. One of those everyday pleasures.

She had accidentally waved at the wrong person before. Enough times that she had rehearsed a list of excuses, ready-made ones that she had trialed on her siblings, so she could use them if the situation inevitably arose. Almost regrettably, she had seemingly become better at avoiding such awkward cases of mistaken friendships since she had placed these preparations in place. She'd probably forget them by the time such a scenario came about.

Ah well. She had tried. That was the main thing.

"Hey Jasmine!" Her walk became slightly faster, and soon she was close enough to begin more detailed conversation. "How're you?"

"Oooh, nice, was it a good movie?" Kizi liked the variety introduced by movie viewings, despite their relative unorthodoxy. Culture was good. Learning from a wide range of sources was good. Kizi was somewhat unique in that she did try looking at the films in relation to the contents of the lessons, a habit she had opted to not voluntarily disclose. Her note-taking during films probably invoked enough suspicion, anyway.

Kizi shrugged.

"Same old, same old. Just had maths, which was pretty fun. Thinking of killing some time with some studying for Spanish." She shrugged, knowing Jasmine would likely not wish to join her. "But yeah, tell me more about the movie!"
