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!

Keith hadn't been able to keep up with Ty and he was pretty damn peeved about it. He knew Ty had every reason to be upset, but fuck, back on the roof he'd looked at Keith like it had all been his own fault. And it hadn't been, not really. That Ty's girlfriend was dead definitely wasn't his fault, and Lizzie, well, he was a teenager, not a prison warden. If Lizzie wanted to run off that was her own decision, even if it was a stupid decision.

That's when he caught up enough to see Ty in his view again and hear the scream.

"Fuck," he muttered.

Ty was still far away, but he spotted a girl, he thought her name started with a C, but he couldn't remember it at that moment. Keith started waving his hands, trying to get her attention. If he was loud Ty would probably hear him, and well, he probably didn't want to know that the reason he was gesturing was to say that approaching Ty was a super bad idea.

Keith didn't feel like having his limbs broken after all.

The girl had ignored his arm-waving, as far as Keith could tell. But she had a rifle in her hands. Maybe with that she didn't need to be afraid of how Ty would react. Ty was strong, way stronger than either Keith or the girl probably, but strength didn't stop bullets.

He moved closer, his eyes focused on the gun in her grip. He was pretty sure it was some kind of AK, although he didn't know enough about the different types to guess which specific kind. He'd seen them in video games before, but that was it. Despite his family's Republican views and general support of the Second Amendment, they weren't gun people. Keith had never touched a gun in his life.

He was about twenty feet away from the pair when he stopped walking. Ty was probably still pissed at him, even if it was stupid. It was probably best to stay back a little bit. He said nothing for a moment, then it occurred to him that it was probably still polite to actually greet people.

"Hey."

"No problem," Keith lied.

Even if he could understand, Ty's behavior was still bugging him tons. But fighting about him wouldn't fix it, even if it would feel great to just let out some of his frustration by telling him not to be a dick about everything. Especially about looking for Lizzie. It would have been a lot easier to search for someone if they had searched together instead of Ty running along and Keith having to follow him. That hadn't gone well before though. Sandra and Alice had just taken off on him, and even if their plan had been stupid, he felt like a bit of a jerk about it now.

Just a bit though.

Keith listened to the girl and he wanted to plug his ears and refuse to listen as she got near the end. He had suspected what she was going to say, but was hoping that she would say anything else so he listened anyway. For a moment as she finished with saying that Lizzie had left a message he just stared down at his shoes. He'd fucked up again. Maybe Ty was right to be pissed at him.

"Shit," he muttered.

He could feel his eyes watering and he was surprised. He didn't think he'd cried in a few years prior to being on the island, and now it felt like it could happen again at any moment. He brought his hand up to his face, and slipped a finger under his glasses to rub his eye. Maybe it would stop it. He wasn't sure.

He wasn't sure about much of anything at the moment.

Keith's finger came away wet. He was crying and he hated that. He turned away slightly so the two of them couldn't see his face. He could feel his face getting hot and red. He wasn't supposed to cry. His brother and dad had told him that. That real men didn't cry and now he had cried when Jasmine threatened him, and he was crying now and he felt like a huge fuckup.

It was just so hard to accept that Lizzie was dead. She wasn't someone he really knew, but shit, they'd spent a few days together. She'd given him weed. She hadn't had to do that. She could have just left him on his own after Alice and Sandra had taken off.

He didn't know what to say about the who's and how's. It didn't really matter. Lizzie was gone, and knowing that Isabel and Lily had done it meant nothing.

He exhaled quickly, then inhaled again, and then exhaled. He could feel his hands shaking.

But he didn't know what to say.

Keith froze up when he heard Ty's question. They were going after them. That was four people that were in the running for them to attempt to kill now. Keith couldn't kill that many people, but, could he tell Ty that?

He turned back towards the two others. The talk sounded important, but not like his business. He stayed silent.

Shit, how were they supposed to to kill the others with no weapons? His eyes locked onto the girl's AK.

He shook his head slightly. It'd be wrong, and he hadn't wanted to try and kill people anyway.

Keith just kept back from the conversation. There wasn't anything he could add to it. He hadn't known Ty's girlfriend really, or had seen her on the island.

But it turned out they were going to be on the move again.

"Alright," he told Ty.

He realized he hadn't really said anything to the girl.

"Uh, good luck," he told her before following after Ty.
