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!

((Candice Banks continued from We Are Monsters))


Candice had vaguely recalled there being a cabin in the area, and had thought for some reason that it might be a good place to hide out. Instead, she found herself standing just outside the cabin door, having frozen the moment right before she had been about to enter due to the sound of voices coming from within.

It probably would be a good place to stay. So of course there would be people already there. Candice would have wondered what she could have possibly been thinking in coming here, but honestly at this point she felt like her brain had shut down several days ago, so the lack of thinking something through wasn't really anything new.


She sat down against the outer wall, listening to the people inside. They seemed quite friendly. Who knows, maybe they were even trustworthy. And if they weren't, no big loss. It's not like she was going to actually work up the courage to speak to them anyway.

I shouldn't be sticking around here.

It wasn't quite right to say that that was how Candice felt. Rather, it was how she thought she should feel. As in, "you were looking for someplace to hole up by yourself, you won't find that here, get your ass in gear and start looking somewhere else". It felt like that should be her reaction, but it wasn't.

Specifically, it felt like that would be the "smart" reaction. But even so, Candice couldn't tear herself away from listening to the conversation going on in the cabin.


Not accomplishing anything.

Not doing anything meaningful.

Just marking time.

They all felt that way as well.


She stood up. The "smart" course of running off to who-knows-where was still an option for now. But still, she didn't quite want to leave.

Besides, what do I know about making decisions, she thought as she hesitated outside the door.

In the end, Candice didn't enter the cabin. She didn't call out to the two inside or make a conscious effort to let them know that she was there.

Part of it was worry about them thinking they needed to defend themselves. No matter how nice they sounded from outside, it wasn't impossible that they might get the wrong idea if Candice were to suddenly pop up. No... even if they sounded nice, that was no guarantee that they were good people. That was the line of thinking that Candice needed to force herself to consider.

Even setting aside the matter of what they might have done to her if she tried to enter, it just felt... wrong? It wasn't a matter of asking to join, because she hadn't felt the same way about Brendan's group. It took Candice a while to put her finger on it, but she thought she had the idea now. The group she had found before, they had just been talking about utilitarian things. Where to go, what to do with bodies, shit like that. This talk, on the other hand, was so very personal. Like, not just "details about my private life" but instead something in the same magnitude as questioning your reason for existence.

It was a conversation that resonated strongly with Candice. And that was why she couldn't intrude.

Because if she felt that way, then they must surely feel that way as well.

It would feel like waltzing into some stranger's house, sitting down at their dinner table, and helping yourself to some food.


With that all being said, though, she was incredibly hesitant to just walk away. It was too good of an opportunity, and Candice couldn't help but feel dumb for just leaving it like that. So instead, she told herself that she would just check out the surrounding area for a bit. Give the two some space and then come back to meet up with them if they're still there. Hopefully something like that could happen.
