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!

Lily had yet to find somewhere safe.

Of course, there would be no safety. Not on this island. But somewhere she could hide, or protect herself from or… something.

That ‘something’ was really starting to get to her. She hated any plan that had vague steps, and as long as her plans stayed vague her survival would be running on nothing but fumes.

But she had decided to cross the bridge for two reasons. The first was what Lili had told her. That trading had been happening here. She doubted that was still happening, but it was worth checking. In case someone was willing to trade their water.

The second was that the asylum was on the other side of this area. A lot of kids would head for the asylum, but there was likely to be a room she could block up. It was unlikely other kids would try to break in if they just thought a room was locked, and she’d be… not safe, but safer than she was out in the open.

Although, she’d also be boxed in. But still, as long as she knew an exit was possible…

She’d stopped at one end of the bridge for a while, regaining her energy. That was the big risk here. There was nowhere to escape to on a bridge. Nowhere except down. So she waited until she had as much energy as she could summon up. Drank a little bit of water—just a bit—and ate some of one of the ration bars while waiting.

Then she took off at a jog across the bridge. Would have been a run, but she still had a bag of supplies dragging her back, and if she ran she’d wind herself long before the end.

As it was, she was already breathing heavily when she got near to the other end and saw Mitch.

She knew Mitch. He worked on Robotics like she did. Smart. Creative. Also bigger. Older. And unlike everyone else she'd met so far, the way he was looking about actually suggested that he was on his guard. If she had a list of who she wouldn’t want as an enemy on this island, Mitch would likely be up there. He had his hand near his belt—

He had a gun.

The moment Lily noticed the gun, her thoughts short-circuited as that horrible wave of fear she'd felt when she thought Jasmine was armed coursed through her again.

But her feet just kept going. She clutched the mirror shard to her chest, like it would deflect bullets.

Ohhhhhhhh not good, not good, not good—

Lily sped up. She couldn’t turn back now. She sped up, and with all the energy her weak, spindly legs could provide, she bolted past him. If he lifted his gun, or did anything, she didn’t see it.

This was one time she wouldn’t bother keeping her back safe. Back or front, it wouldn’t make any different with that gun.

She just kept running.
