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!

"You're not Min Jae..."

"Al, put that shit down before I put you down."

"I'm not playing games here, put it away."

"I don't know, actually."

"I expected you to pull the trigger."

"Do you know who I am?"

"Not without shooting at each other, no..."

"What are you doing here anyways? Hiding from someone?"

"Why... Alessio, why would you want to kill your friends anyways? I don't get it."

"I couldn't do that. I've killed someone already, and I know I don't deserve to go home. I don't want to anyways. I want to be with the people I care about."

"..."

"You mind if I take my mask off?"

"Al, I'm not going to beat around the bush here... I'm probably going to end up shooting you anyways in a few minutes, maybe earlier if you reach for that gun."

"It's not a trick question, all I want is an answer."

"If this conversation's over, then tell me, because it'll just be a waste of time otherwise."

"Can I take off the mask, now?"

"Okay."

"..."

"I... I don't really like wearing the mask to be honest with you, and I know it's still me, but I like to pretend it's not when I do bad things with it."

"I want to pretend I'm some insane psycho killer on the hunt for people who wronged me or something, but I'm not. I'm just... me."

"I wish my friends were still alive, so I could do something else, but they're not. I could've got us all out of here, but I was just too dumb or lazy or scared to actually pull through."

"I can kind of agree with you though, living is good, but do you really call this living?"

"You don't get it Al. You won't get it until later. I don't know what type of person you are, but I couldn't sleep like a baby knowing there's blood on my hands Al! I've seen the dead, I've fucking talked to them!"

"I... I want to be one of them. They're the only people I could belong with anyways."

"Al, do you really want peace, or are you just scared of dying?"

"You don't have a choice. You might as well, because it's coming faster than you think."

"I want to know why you did what you did. Why did all those people have to die, Al?"

"Just talk, Al. How many people do you think are watching you right now? Don't you think the families of your victims need to know? Doesn't your own family deserve to know?"

"The cafeteria group you mentioned, they said it was better to die with their friends then kill and end up alone..."

"Why didn't you stay with them?"

"Didn't you have any friends, or did you forget that part when you started killing people?"

"Well... that makes two of us then."

"What's even been keeping you going?"

"Do you really think you can just 'start all over' again?"

Jon thought that maybe, just maybe, people could be redeemed.

He thought maybe he could talk sense into Al.

Why was he always wrong?

Every time he tried to do something right, it went wrong.

But every time he did what he thought was the wrong thing, it brought results.

From the way Alessio spoke, he knew it was going to be the latter.

Out of everyone he's met, Al was one of the worst people he knew, barring Min Jae Parker, and Alex Tarquin.

Whereas the other two were psychopaths who did this purely for enjoyment, Alessio did it out of cowardish, and selfishness.

He didn't care who's lives he destroyed, and he didn't regret a single thing he did. He thinks he's going to go home, and just start over, and nobody will remember a thing he did.

Jon would have kept talking to him until he got the chance to shoot Al himself, however, a girl, Coleen, was sneaking up behind him with a rifle, automatic too. Any videogame or movie he's ever scene told him all he needed to know about the gun. That gun was pointed right at Al's back.

He won't be seeing what happens next on this island. Jon and Coleen will.

She called him out, but she didn't shoot. Not yet. Wait...

The safety. Al threw something, he's rushing her, stop him Jon!

*DAKKADAKKADAKKA*

Jon dropped everything and hit the deck, ears ringing. He felt cold sand cling to his bare skin as his eye trailed up into the stars.

Was he hit? Was it over? He couldn't hear anything but the feint ringing in his ears. He felt frozen, paralyzed. The world stopped, nothing but the stars and clouds and that ringing. What the hell was going on? Why couldn't he move? He couldn't feel the pain of the bullets, but he could still feel everything else. Was he hit or not?

Was he going to die?

It couldn't have happened now, not now! Not this close. He had to get up, he had to move! There was things he still had to do, he couldn't lose it all this close!

He didn't want to die... He didn't want to die!

Jon was finally terrified of the unknown.

The ringing in his ears turned to screaming, his eye moved over and saw Al forcing Coleen into the fire.

Move damnit move! He wasn't hit, he couldn't feel it, he had to move!

Jon was terrified, he was helpless again, he couldn't save her. He remembered what happened to Barry, to Michael, to Brendan.

It didn't take long for that fear to become anger.

Jon felt his hand twitch.

He couldn't find his gun, it was gone, fuck! His hand felt around the sand and gripped the machete.

He turned back around and saw Al with the AK.

"No!"

Jon scrambled to his feet as the familiar sounds filled his ears.

He shot her. Jon failed again.

Jon was running forwards as those horrid sounds filled his head again.

Al turned the gun to Jon, ready to fire.

Was this it?

Is it over now?

No.

Jon screamed as he swung the machete towards Al, knocking the barrel of the gun upwards.

Jon wasn't good at helping people, but The Shape was great at hurting them.

It was time for Al to figure that out.

Alessio Rigano would never see his home again.

The Shape was closing in, Al couldn't shoot him, nor could he hide behind his rifle. It was over for him.

"You had a choice! You chose this!"

Something came from his peripheral vision, landing into Alessio's midsection. It was a spear! Where did it come from?!

The Sh-Jon froze, he was stunned. It was Coleen, despite the obvious, she... she was still alive? After all of that, she got back up?

Jon was missed by everything, and he was too terrifyed to move. Coleen was burned alive and shot multiple times, and it didn't take her much longer to jump back into it.

He looked back to Al who was raising his gun again.

Jon lurched forwards, driving his machete into Alessio's abdomen.

"Not this time you bastard! Not again!"

He wrapped his other arm around Al, and pulled him closer into a form resembling a hug, forcing Alessio deeper into the blade.

"Not again! Not again..."

He only stared straight ahead as he felt the blood drip down over his hand.

"It's over... It's over Al. You don't get to choose anymore, we choose!"

He stared into Al's eyes as he dragged him away from Coleen, away from the gun he dropped.

"You're through... Just give up. It's over... It's over for you... Don't worry about home anymore."

Jon's voice lowered to a whisper, as his hand left Al's back and moved to his chest. Jon gave a hard shove and forced Al off the machete.

As he watched him hit the ground, Jon realized he wasn't wearing his mask. He wasn't The Shape. He was Jon, Jonathan Gulley, and he may have just done something right for once.

Wait... What about Coleen...

Jon turned around and ran back to her, hoping if she got up, maybe she could be helped. A gut feeling told him otherwise, but he still had to try.

As Jon tried to help Coleen up, he knew there wasn't much more time left for her, but he wasn't going to just leave her here to die with her killer. Jon glanced behind him at the writhing form of Alessio, laying in the sand.

Coleen asked about Vanessa. Jon couldn't say anything about her, he'd never seen her on the island.

As they were walking out, she asked what was Jon's name. He wanted to tell her that his name didn't matter. He simply told her the truth. Maybe she'd know, maybe not.

"Jon, just Jon."

Jon couldn't help but feel terrible however, if he didn't freeze up, he could have saved Coleen. It should have just been Al, or it should have been him instead of her.

"Where do you want to go, now?"

((Jonathan Gulley continued in Summertree ))
