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!

((Blair Moore continued from Creeping Doom))

It was too much.

On one hand, she was vindicated, proven in her suspicion of Caedyn Miller's morals, ethics and intentions. The bitch had apparently bludgeoned and stabbed a girl to death. Knocking someone over the head? Possible accident. Stabbing them repeatedly? There was no other way to put it; she was a psycho.

The rest of the deaths barely registered as she sat on the sandy beach; same killers, more victims. That Will guy killed someone apparently, the infamous Darius van Dyke, but that was all. Mostly it was Caedyn. Because Blair being right about the other girl was a chilling prospect; she really was dangerous.

It startled Blair when it occurred to her that murdering Caedyn was now much less morally questionable. Stupid idea. As long as the bitch didn't show up on Blair's doorstep, she'd probably get killed by someone else. It wasn't Blair's problem, sick as it was. Plus, she was unarmed and probably less fit than Caedyn, though she'd hate to admit it.

Since running into that creep Alan, Blair had spent the day wandering to and from the asylum, somehow slipping any sort of contact with other students, though she did have to hide on occasion. She had been soaked in the rain and cold and was probably going to get sick, but shelter was an enticing risk. After all, other people wanted it too.

Now that Day 5 had rolled in, she was frankly surprised she was still alive. Not for lack of trying and luck, but for all her bluster about staying alive, she'd had doubts. It was still early, and very likely that she was still doomed in the short and long run, but living to see morning five days in a row on a murderer-filled island was good enough for her.

Shivering in the wind, Blair checked her rations in the bag sitting next to her for the umpteenth time. Only about a day left worth of stuff. Not good, but what solution was there? Looting corpses? Robbery? She was better than that, and stealing was impractical, dangerous and difficult without a weapon.

Another day, another problem. How wonderful. She laid back in the surprisingly comfy sand and closed her eyes.

Rene sat down next to Blair, who tried to smile in return. Not much luck, but some progress was made. She sat up and brushed the sand out of her hair. She looked at her companion. The poor thing, she was probably used to eating a lot-well, okay, that was unfair. What a time to be judging someone for their lifestyle, when they're one of the few people you think won't be out to kill you.

"Hey. Go ahead, not like I'm doing much." Fuck, her mind went back to Caedyn. She'd won something, hadn't she? A prize for being a good sport. Hah. Fun times.

"It's a stupid name, Survival of the Fittest." Blair spoke up after a moment of silence. "It's a misappropriation of a scientific term. If this was about the fittest, we'd all be equally armed to start, so we'd adapt. And I mean, in the real situation we'd reproduce but nobody here is thinking about babies I'd bet."

Just then, before Blair could continue her random train of thought, some guy called out. She turned to look at him; he wasn't a familiar face, but at least he seemed not-crazy, unlike Alan.

"Sup. You here to kill us?" Blair heaved herself to her feet. "'Cause you can try, but I'm bulletproof and my friend here has, uh, we'll say eye laser powers. The water's, I dunno, radioactive or something." She shrugged comically. A bit of mirth, not like her, but she was beyond taking this seriously. Someone here was probably going to kill her, and it was doubtful she'd get a chance to fight back when it came down. Why not go out with a snarky one-liner?

She laughed, nearly doubling over before devolving into violent coughing.

Blair had to admit, corny though Wade was, it was a pretty funny reaction. She could at least assume he wasn't some kind of psycho, at least, not yet. Jesus, what a morbid thought. 'Oh, he's not crazy. YET'. Then again, morbid didn't exactly mean unrealistic.

For example, almost everyone here who'd killed was probably some manner of nutjob. Nancy, Kimiko, Alessio, Alvaro, Isabel, etcetera. Caedyn too, but she was probably crazy to begin with.

Blair realized her mirth had almost totally decayed by this point; she felt sad again. Whee. It didn't help that Wade, though obviously not actually dead, would probably find himself in that state sooner than later. Then again, same for Blair and Rene. Ugh.

"Yeah, haha." She forced a laugh, but it was pretty obvious she'd lost the humor of the situation. Blair sighed. "You can get up now. We're not gonna hurt you."

Well now Blair just felt guilty. The guy seemed pretty down on himself.

She considered her options. Having him tag along would only bring trouble; hell, it took her this long to get used to Rene, and look at her. This kid seemed about to freak out, and she was not excited to have a loose cannon around if she could avoid it.

On the other hand, why stress about it too much? She was fucked anyway, as established since Day 1, and this guy didn't exactly scared her. If he wanted to stick around for a bit, hey, more the merrier.

On the third hand-wait, what was he looking at behind her? Suddenly paranoid, Blair whipped around to look. There was someone over there, and Blair's eyes widened in shock. She couldn't tell for sure, but they looked armed. Not good.

"Shit, we should go. Coming?"

Blair made a run for it in the opposite direction. Her poor internal organs, complaining now though they were, would thank her later when they weren't perforated.
