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!

[Lili Williams continued from God in Three Persons.]

Lili leaned back in her chair, teetering on the back legs of the wooden frame as she stared up at the ceiling. While she had, in fact, looked through a few books, nothing quite caught her eye. Maybe bloody wars and history textbooks weren't very good reading material for people staffing what was, essentially, a prison for the less-than-mentally-stable. Too stressful? Or maybe it was a danger that a book like that could get into the hands of a patient and trigger some panic attack or something. Lili didn't know, and she wished she didn't care, but at this point, every minute she spent in Spiderland made her feel like it was growing a part of her.

She figured that her father's pep talk about naming things and attachment would've been better to remember when she woke up in the bell tower.

"I helped carry it this far," she said, leaning her chair forward until the front legs again touched the ground, "I might as well see it through. Plus, I wanna meet these friends of yours. Might be someone I know among them, y'know?"

Great. Finally, things were starting to move in an exciting direction. Who knew what wacky characters Darius had made friends with over the course of his own adventures? It was quite possible that among them were several of Lili's friends as well, and as far as she could reconcile in her head, the more the merrier.

At Darius' suggestion, Lili left the majority of her stuff with Natalie, but she silently picked her light-saber out from her bag and clipped it onto her waist. It wasn't much of a weapon, but as far as blunt implements went it was lightweight and stung.

The corpse's weight was familiar to Lili, but the exhaustion of walking from building to building over the course of the day had started to take its toll on her. What was once manageable to lift on her own was now impossible without Darius' help.

"Pleasant parts?" she chirped, "Walking around with a body was pretty pleasant, if you ask me. Nothing like a good corpse haul."

Demented humor. Lili was starting to feel more and more at home.

The small space of the library was still not small enough to eliminate all of Lili's nearsightedness - in fact, even the titles of books on higher shelves were nigh impossible to read - but it was a great deal better than the open air outside. It was enough, in fact, for Lili to make out movement through the veil of distance. Her ears, the sharper of the two senses, confirmed what she could have assumed was delirium; there was someone else among them.

Lili furrowed her eyebrows, concentrating on where the shape could've gone next. Darius, however...

"You just said ell-oh-ell out loud, like it was a word, didn't you?"

She sucked her teeth, shaking her head back and forth. It could've been something harmless, like a squirrel or another animal, or even a careless student that wouldn't be too much of a threat. Maybe I could convince them to hang out with us. The more the merrier, the more the merrier.

Then, a louder sound than before, and Lili jumped, letting her grip on the body go just as Darius did the same.

The body made a loud "Thump!" as it hit the ground. Lili backed up against the wall and removed the light-saber from her waist with shaky hands and nervous fingers. Holding down the release button and flicking her wrist, the green plastic beam shot forth. Lili pulled the end out until it wouldn't go any further, strengthening the hold of the "blade".

Words piled up on the wall that was her gritted teeth, quip after quip ready to spill out and scare the living daylights out of whoever was waiting for her.

All that came out were sharp, short breaths as Lili's eyes darted around the room.

[GMing approved.]

The pair's stalker came spiraling around the corner in a brown-haired tornado, arms flailing. The girl tumbled narrowly past Lili, taking her time to stumble around a little bit, but started back around on a pivot, on something of a collision course that looked like she was heading right for Lili's face. There was no time for the neurons in Lili's brain to fire fast enough to get her out of her way. There was only enough time to brace. There was only enough time to hope for the best.

Like a flash of lightning, the human storm's arm thrust forth like a piston, hitting Lili beneath her left rib cage. The punch would've been hard enough to wind her had it landed in the right spot, or enough to knock her out if it had slammed her nose back into her skull and into her brain. Instead, Lili was knocked back, taking a few reflexive steps until she found her back against the wall.

There was no time.

Lili screamed and swung the light saber at her attacker's face as hard as she could, striking her nose. She stumbled, blood starting to trickle down her face, giving Lili enough time to see Darius running out the door.

In all honesty, Lili knew that she probably should have seen this coming.

Ducking past, Lili ran after her 'friend' as fast as she could, even if only to drag him back to the library to fight.
