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 Thursday's Child))

Their traveling had been punctuated by the silence. An ominous feeling surrounding the area, almost as if all sound had been gobbled up. There were occasions she thought she'd heard something or someone else than Aiden or Melanie, but there was nothing. They kept their distance from the asylum, Serena was fine with that. If she had her way, she would never step foot in that place again.

When they made camp at the cave, they had an agreement for one to guard while the other two sleep, then switch up after a few hours. Her heart racing as it was her turn to guard, praying no one would find their camp. when her turn was over and she went to try to get some sleep, she heard screaming coming from different places. She feared the screams were coming closer. Particularly from the asylum, reminded her of the house on the hill. When it was morning, as she rubbed her eyes, a familiar sound burst through the speakers.

Announcement time.

She pulled her legs close as she listened to the announcements, more classmates and friends killing each other. She noted to herself to keep an eye out for Nancy Kyle, how many had she killed now? 3 or 4? Didn't matter, she was a danger to them all. Same with Isabel and Kimiko.

The next killer...when their name was said, Serena felt her heart breaking.

Brendan killed someone. Fucking Brendan Harte killed someone, what the hell was this place doing to everyone? She looked at the other two, Mel was crying. She was not the only one taking these announcements hard. "I don't get it..." It has to be self defense right? There's no way the Brendan she knew would do something like that. "Do they want to get home that bad? Don't they realise people will hate them?"

She remembered the case of one of the winners, there was a media frenzy surrounding his death. Specially since they never found his killer. He was just like them. Killed and tortured people mercilessly, then gunned down in his own home. They can't win. They shouldn't win.

She listened as Mel talked about why they did this. it made more sense to her now. You take something away from someone, it was natural for them to want it back.

Serena knew she couldn't do it, ignoring everything her parents taught, what she'd been told in church, in school. She would be giving up for them if she did.

But what if her friends did? Could she look them in the eye and accept that? They were out there surviving just as she was, she just had to find them, make sure they were all right.

That's what she was going to do, to hell with winning this crap.

She looked at Mel now, just like at the tower, she was moving onward despite it all. She had barely known her back home, and yet she had helped her all the same, it brought a smile to Serena's face. Shame she only got to know her now.

She got up on her feet. "Yeah, Right behind you guys.." She wasn't in the driver seat which she didn't like, but she trusted them somewhat, neither wanted to kill. And everything's a better alternative to that at this point.

Serena followed her out to the sand, taking her shoes off as she reached it. It felt good looking out at the sea, almost as if she wasn't there, she wouldn't have to worry if her friends were dead or if a killer was around. She could imagine herself away, so far away...

A thought pushed it's way into her mind as she stood there. What would her parents say if they saw her now? Standing at the edge of the beach, would they fear she would kill herself like Abby did? And Jordan, what would they tell him? She prayed they wouldn't watch any of this. Remember her as she was, not what she became.

She felt the water hitting her feet, cold as can be, but nice. Sand sticking to her soles as she wandered close to Mel, taking in the scenery around them. It didn't give off the oppressive feeling the other places did, like no one had been there in a long time. If only Jeremy or Alice was here, she could show them this place...

She listened as Mel talked about wandering around the island, finding something beautifull to draw or paint. Serena could only nod at the thought, it was better than whatever they were supposed to do. Better to take the piss out of this stupid game than play it.

She had turned to her, asked her if it was her thing, Serena assumed the art part. She shrugged at that

"Not really. I was never good with painting or taking pictures. I'm better with other means of expression." She hadn't sung since she got here, if she saw them again then maybe she could...

"As for what I want? I want to find my friends, make sure their alright and...there's one in particular I have to see, tell him something before it's too late." She felt her face redden afterwards, it was something she hadn't told anyone before. She just hoped she would have the chance.

It felt weird to talk abut, she had never mentioned it to anyone, family or friends. And here she was admitting it to someone she'd only known for a day. it was then she caught what Mel said it was.

"Tr-true love?" She hadn't thought of how she felt about him like that, she had hoped it was something that would go over after high school, not ruin what they had going as friends. And would it be true love when she was fairly sure only one of them felt like that? Another thought popped into her head as Mel suggested to her that they find him, how would he react? She'd known him for years and yet she didn't know...

"Follow my heart...if you do-don't mind then..."

She put her shoes on and hurried over to the cove, there was only so much time on their hands, and if she wanted to find him then she had to hurry. She grabbed her bag and started rummaging through it for the map.

"Aiden wake up! We're moving out!"
