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!

The skinny, long-haired blonde girl sitting next to Georgia Lee hadn't said a peep up to this point. That's how it always seemed to operate with her; school had been rough for little Coleen. Kingman had treated her far kinder than all the other cities she had lived in and all the other elementary schools she had gone to. Here, she had some people she could consider friends. She had some teachers that would help her to fit in and not point her out. She almost felt normal.

Well, almost. Georgia Lee had meant well, fetching all sorts of cosmetics from around the household in order to 'fix up that face'. Coleen was unsure of makeup; for as long as she could remember, she'd have to put lotions on her face in order to keep it moisturized and to keep scabs from getting too bad. Her mother was always very insistent on it. She'd have to take some between classes - her mother made sure that the nurse made her do it. Such practices felt alienating. To have to go through some sort of ritual that other kids didn't, and all over a stupid accident that she had only the faintest memory of. The only kids who never judged her for it, she thought, were her younger siblings.

Anyway, there was no telling how other substances and creams and powders were going to react to her face. Georgia Lee seemed right on top of things; she knew without being told that moisturizers were more important than anything (it was vital that they be gentle to skin, though). Foundation would do most of the cover-up job.

"You think all of this could make me look normal?" Coleen asked skeptically, peering over at GLD with her uncovered eye. Nearly every day at school saw her covering half her face with her long, straight hair. Some people thought it looked cute, like it was some design choice to convey shyness or inhibition. Then, of course, a stray gust of wind or an errant toss of the head and it was instantly revealed why Coleen dressed her hair that way.

Coleen picked up a bottle or two from the library table, looking at them and reading each label. Georgia Lee DID have a treasure-trove here: mascara, lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush... Maybe they could have some fun with the good side of her face, too. Coleen's shoulders un-hunched. Just a tiny bit.

"Okay. Gosh. Goooooosh, uh, where do we start?"

Coleen looked down to all the tools in front of her. Or should they be calling them 'toys'? Tools was the more appropriate word, she thought, but Georgia Lee had made it clear to some extent that this was for experimentation, and Coleen had resolved to have fun with this. That was how she crossed the hurdle of her anxiety; it wasn't exactly easy to let somebody else get all up in her face in order to 'fix' her.

"I guess the foundation. Umm..." She picked up one disc-shaped container of the foundation, then set it down and picked up another. Any of the really dark shades that she knew wouldn't fit her were put aside, and from visuals alone she narrowed down the selections... slightly, anyway, to about four or five different shades. "This one? This one? I don't know... should we just start putting them on me?" Coleen had no idea what she was doing. At their age, the number of girls wearing makeup wasn't huge, or at least so she thought. Anybody who tried usually ended up doing things garishly and making themselves look like a clown, risking humiliation from their classmates. But if this was going to help her look pretty, darn it, she wanted to get better.

"One of these two," Coleen decided. "Try my right side. Then... then I guess, we could try..." She scratched the side of her nose with a long fingernail, looking nervously off to the left.

((Frankly thought that was a lovely way to end it. So... Coleen continued elsewhere.))
