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!

((Serena Waters continued from Go to a school trip they said, it will be fun they said))

She had lost him, some-fucking-how she had managed to lose Al. She had spent the night looking for him, wandering the asylum building, if the building looked eerie during the day did not compare to how it looked at night. She stopped for a bit rub her eyes when she heard a crackle in the air as loudspeaker started. A familiar voice echoed through the halls as he ratlled of his speech, the same man that shot their teachers and told them to kill each other.

Abby was dead. Sweet, dear Abby who wouldn't hurt anyone, dead at her own hands. the only thought running through her mind was why would she do that? Something horrible must have happened to her for this to happen. The thought made her eyes well up. And not just her either, Scarlett, Barry and Harold were all dead too, good people snuffed out for this sick game.

And the names continued, Isabel Ramirez came up twice. Already they had someone who's decided to kill their way home, no one kills two people by complete accident.

The worst about it were the jokes. The macabre things this person were spewing out about people. It shook Serena to her core. It wasn't enough for them to force them into this, they had to sit back and joke about it the entire time.

And a final kick to her hopes were administered, he announced the only danger zone for the day, and of course it was the supply depot. Serena reacted to this with calm and grace, she threw her bag on the floor and screamed out obscenities in the hall. She stomped on her bag for a bit before slumping down near the wall and let the tears out, her friends were dying or dead and the plan she had was stopped as easily as them snapping their fingers.


After she had calmed down, she got on her feet, grabbed her bag and started walking again. No destination in mind, no plan for now. She just wanted out of this place.

The announcments were a wake up call for her, she knew people would die and people would kill, but it still took her by suprise with how many she knew were just....gone. The only comfort she had from it were that more of her friends weren't dead. Jeremy, Alice, Al...please be safe. She thought as she looked around for an exit. Every noise she heard echoed through the building making hard to tell where it came from. Sometimes it looked like something or other moved in the dark, as if they were following her. Eventually she flat out stopped walking and ran.

The asylum was getting to her. She had to get out.

The instant she saw something that looked like an exit, she ran straight towards it and burst through the door. The feeling of fresh air almost felt foreign. The asylum was old and felt like it, the very air inside gave a sense of deadness to the whole area. With what's going on now, this whole place is going to feel haunted, moreso than it does already.

At this point she noticed the tower, maybe where all the noise came from earlier? She decided to make her way there, get a proper lookout over the area. However, getting closer she noticed two people.

Aiden was a very distinct person to say the least if not in appearance, then certainly in personality. He liked giving nicknames to people she's heard, a bit weird in some respects, but he was always nice to her whenever they spoke to each other, maybe she could try and talk to him and his friend. She stepped in for a closer look.

Annnnnd she just noticed that he was covered in blood, great.

As the two stood close to the tower and talked to each other, neither of them looked armed, so Serena walked closer to the pair. It was a dumb idea, it went against everything she had told Al earlier and one of them looked like they had been through some shit, but Serena didn't care, after the night she just had, she needed to talk to someone.

It was then someone burst out the tower, running away fast enough Serena could barely tell who it was. A boy, she'd seen him around school sometimes, she blanked on the name. Whoever it was, something bad must have happened to spook him so badly. It gave Serena second thoughts about being here.

The pair looked suprised at the retreating boy, before talking to each other again. She could have left when the boy ran out, hell she probably should have, but she didn't. Instead she raised her hand and waved at them, trying her best to come off as friendly.

At first she felt like a dolt standing there waving at two people she didn't interact much with back home, but when both of them responded in kind, Serena started to close the distance between them. As she got closer, she recognized that the girl was Mel, she didn't know her that well back home though she seemed nice, she looked like she'd been through less than Aiden at least.

"Thanks for being friendly... I need it after the night I've had." she said as she rubbed one of her eyes, both felt heavy after she had not slept throughout the night, a dumb mistake that she would pay for.

Once she got closer to them, she noticed the blood on Aiden looked dry, he didn't look hurt from what she could tell, but it wouldn't be bad to ask right? "Um...are you hurt...?" She gestured at his shirt. "Y'know..with all that..." The word wouldn't come out, it was still insane to her that one of her classmates was standing in front of her; shirt caked in blood, his or someone else's.

Aiden looked surprised at her. He seemed not to realize what she was talking about at first, till he looked down at himself, as if the blood wasn't there at first. His response was almost casual, but then he stopped mid sentence and started stammering. It was the sudden awkwardness, the pause and the look at Mel that told her all she needed to know. Mel's answer was just the clincher, something bad had happened and her question had stirred up memories in him.

"I'm sorry.. I shouldn't have..." She looked away, she couldn't look at him. A mixture of blood and regret made it difficult, she looked down at the ground for a bit before looking at the tower, the centerpiece of this area. Just yesterday there were people here ringing the bell, could that boy have been drawn here by it? They can't have been the first ones here, if his response to them outside was to run away.

As Serena was thinking over this, she heard Mel talking about Aiden having to change clothes. She looked over at the two to see Mel taking of her jacket to give to him, she looked away again, face a bit red and said out loud. "Th-that would be good, so uh..people wouldn't assume..." Her words trailed off at the end, she wondered herself why she walked up when he was looking like that, maybe she was too trusting? Either way, it was better than being stuck in a room with someone holding a gun outside.

Aiden didn't want the jacket, he wanted Mel to keep it. She didn't get his reasoning, if he was caught walking around with that much blood on him, people will figure it's alright to attack on sight. Mel didn't look pleased with it either, Serena looked at the two feeling a bit awkward. Neither looked to be giving up.

Almost as if to break the subject, Aiden wanted them to check out the tower, the reason they were all there. As they walked closer, Mel walked up front and opened the door. It was then they saw Barry, or rather what was left of him.

His neck was snapped, the angle almost made it look silly, like this was all a black comedy and his death was a punchline for people to laugh at.

"How... how could h-he have done that to Barry!?" The words squeaked out after Mel closed the door, she was trying her best not to freak out at them, but the scene of one of the nicest people she knew killed, and for what? So Alvaro could go home and continue as if he hadn't done nothing wrong? Serena wasn't going to stand for that.

She looked at them for an answer, trying; and failing not to cry.

Neither had an answer for her, that was the worst thing. It's as if everything stopped making sense for Serena, Al running off without her, her classmate in front of her covered in blood that's not his. The dead body of Barry inside the tower, twisted and broken by Alvaro. At least now they knew why the boy ran away so fast, holed up in this place with that at the front door

Aiden lost his temper and yelled out loud, his back to them as he started swearing up and down about leaving. Swearing aside, He had a point. They couldn't stay there, not with Barry...inside.

As Aiden started walking away, Mel extended her hand out to Serena and told her she was with them. She looked at her for a bit, earlier she had told Al to be distrustful of everyone, even friends. You never know, back home Alvaro didn't seem like the type to just...murder someone like that, but what else could she do? Spend a day alone out of paranoia? Or go with two people who had their heads on straight?

"Thanks Mel, I...I appreciate it."

So she did.
