It had been an interesting twelve hours to say the least. Two of the mentors had essentially gone missing since a pair of rather unexpected events. Jared had insisted that he go down to the island to escort Karen off of it, and he was still yet to return. And Dr. Millard Smith had essentially been a useless lump of flesh ever since his favorite student had eaten a shot to the face. A used detonator sat on his desk as he ran his eyes over the lists of the deaths, every single one still vivid in his mind. Each and every one; well, close to every one had been oh so much fun to watch, completely unedited. The raw footage. Just the way he liked it.

In another world, another time, Leonardo would probably have been locked up a long time ago. A sick freak, a cold blooded killer at some point in his life. Today, he was nothing but a figurehead though. A star, a target for public scorn and outcry. And he loved every moment of it.

No sense in wasting time. It was time for the announcement once again.

---

"Hello, to everybody that's still around to hear the sound of my voice! It's only been forty-eight hours since the fifteen of you first woke up down there on our beautiful, commandeered resort island. Enjoying the fun and the sun? Oh, what's that, fifteen you ask? Yes, there are only fifteen of you left! And congratulations to those of you who are still standing. You've endured quite a bit in the past few days, haven't you? Well, trust me, it's almost over for you, and for some more than others! Isn't it so exciting? There are so few of you left alive! Here, let me give you a little game I've been told about by one of our more vicious winners in previous seasons. By the time they got to the final five, they wandered around the island, spotting each and every body, and they spent a few minutes imagining exactly how the person died. Then, they took a look at their list of the dead and see if they got it right. Oh, the mystery, the intrigue. Isn't it so exciting kids?

"I hope you're enjoying the waves, the sun, and your newfound fame while you can. It's always the little things.

"But you don't want to hear me blather on and on, do you? No, of course you don't. You want to hear all about the last twenty one of your classmates died! That's almost one kill every half an hour, easily one of the most action packed segments we've ever seen here on Survival of the Fittest! If one of these was your doing, give yourselves a pat on the back! If not, well... We've got a little incentive for you. Don't worry, you'll understand when I'm done.

"We start off this spree of killing with an old favorite, putting another notch in her belt. Karen Ruiz gunned down Brenda Hernandez at point blank range, and then took off running across the island. In stunning contrast, our next death one one of the more touching, even if you could almost taste the tension in the air. Odile Jones put Cesar Perdomo out of his misery with a quick single gunshot.

"So, viewers at home. Do you remember this guy, that we haven't seen since the first scene now? He's back! And he... picked the wrong guy to mess with. John Benson decided he was going to play it smart, hide, stay out of the limelight. And all that effort and good rest led him to what? A crossbow bolt through the eye, courtesy of Daniel Renard. Kid, you're doing the red team good, and trust me, nobody else out there really is. You know one of your teammates let that little bastard get away with a smack to the head on the first day?

"Our first kill of the second half of the game was one born of sheer stupidity. Michael Clark decided he didn't need his head anymore, and sat around in a danger zone for a little too long. So anti-climactic, wouldn't you all agree? Well, the boring deaths didn't last for long, with Karen Ruiz getting her ninth kill of the game! That's right, another few bullets into Leopold Sutherland and that was the end of that.

"You know what I hate about this late part of the game? Gun kills get all samey after a while. Which is why I always appreciate it when someone manages one of the fun kills after the halfway point. Sterling Odair killed Jonas Jefferies with a hatchet directly to the forehead. And Vincent Sullivan continued the pattern, running Ben Grayson through with a sword. And the last of the Pink team perished with a gunshot, Glen Bole dying at the hands of Simon Porter.

"So, I hear some of you might be gamers. If so, you'll recognize this one. D-Double kill! That's right! Chelsea Roberts scored a pair of kills in relatively quick succession, beating Michael Marshall to death, and then stabbing Axel Stadler right in the neck!

"And... Well, huh. Will you look at this. Another anticlimactic moment. Karen Ruiz is being credited for this one, as Zachariah Johnston finally gave in from wounds she inflicted on him in that little altercation a while back. Can you count kids? We'll see. Natalie Chauncy was a first to our scoreboard today as well, accidentally shooting April Stone in the head. Come on kid. We all know you meant to do it. Now the question is, can you admit it to yourself?

"Ferric Tam took a hit to the head that would make an all star linebacker hurt. Of course, that hit was from a bullet, sent his way by Madelyn Connor. He sure was a smart one, so he should have known. You rarely survive strikes to the temple, much less gunshots. Bad situation to sit in. His mentor has been nearly inconsolable ever since. Tsk Tsk, Mr. Tam. Tsk Tsk.

"You know, I always love it when this happens. Axel Stadler got a kill from beyond the grave, and our femme fatale Chelsea Roberts just couldn't hold out. Sweet poetic justice, for those who care. Vincent Sullivan decided to show himself as a force in the game again, successfully gunning down Anna Hitchins over near the lake. Oh, right! Speaking of Poetic justice, we had a nice little kill back only a couple of hours ago! Jacob Langston went in a way I'm not envious of. Bobby Goldman hit him in the neck so hard with a metal rod that it actually bent around him. However, Bobby Goldman went down a few seconds later thanks to Amber Lyons, who stabbed him in the back, sending him down a flight of stairs. We'll have to get a coroner's call on what actually killed him, although my money's on the head trauma.

"So, kids, this next one is a lesson as to why you listen to what you're told by us. Jared Clayton got a kill from the winner's circle. Apparently Jhamel Thompson thought it would be a good idea to attack Karen Ruiz after she'd gotten her tenth kill, and Mr. Clayton is loyal to his team. I've heard collar detonations are not fun ways to go. Oh, and speaking of Karen Ruiz, you don't need to worry about her anymore. Oh no, she isn't dead. She's on a helicopter somewhere over Florida right now, if I had to guess. That's right, she's our ten kill winner, and she's on her way home right now. Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz, you should be proud of your daughter. She was a pleasure to have.

"And rounding out the deaths this section was another give up and die type of death. Marcus Walker fell over dead from wounds given to him by Madelyn Connor. Yes, that's your kill my dear, don't worry.

"So, if you've been keeping count, we're down to our last 15 of you. That means it's time to push you together, to keep the action going. We're only leaving five zones open right now, so listen closely. If you're in any of the following areas, you need to move, and you need to move now. The following areas are now Danger Zones. The Tar Pits, The Open Plains, The Northern Beach, The Western Beach, The Coastal Lake, The Geyser, The Ski Resort, The Forest, The Rain Forest, and The Hot Spot. Again, you must be in the The Resort Hotel, The Cruise Ship, The Docks, The Inland Lake, or The Resort Beach if you want a chance to make it until the morning.

"This is Leonardo Dahnke, as always, signing off."

Alrighty folks! The rolls are as follows.

Summary:
1. Sterling Odair (Acidic)
2. Mikaela Warner (Namira)
3. Mason Ross (Outfoxd) - Timothy Walker (Lord Shadow, Hero Card Used)
4. Brennan O'Brian (Pippin)
5. Daniel Renard (Corrupt Dropbear)

Three days for cards, and another seven days after that for deaths. You all know the drill!





Inactivity for endgame will be handled a little differently than it has been for other Minis and AUs. Specifically, once it becomes your turn to post, you have six days to get a post up. If you fail to do so, your character gets yanked and inactive killed. It doesn't matter if you were supposed to win; inactivity will be enforced. Being Away is still allowed, but we're hoping to avoid huge delays caused by handlers being gone for months at a time.

If that describes you, if you have no interest in being in endgame, or if you do not feel that you can keep up with the posting regime, you can opt out by sending Help a PM stating that you are doing so. We'll count those characters as automatically rolled, then roll down to the finalists from whoever we have remaining.

Please note that six days is the absolute maximum. Really, it should take you much less than that. Bookkeeping is going to be very strict on this; you can and will get busted if you stray over 144 hours at all.
Second Chances:
B??: Chadd Crossen (Audi R8) - Colehurst Secondary School - (Kill Count: 0) - 100% - "I've got my girl and my ride. What else does a guy need?
B??: Rekka Saionji (Sushi Knife) - Colehurst Secondary School (Kill Count: 0) - 100% - "I don't think I'll ever get used to this place... The sea is where I belong."

So what is that now, three in a row? Something like that. Anyway, like last time, I'd love for a hero for Brennan. I kinda doubt I'll get one, but I can't bear the thought of the poor guy dying.

On another note, not sure whether it was intentional or not, but Glen's death in the announcement is incorrect. Jus' saying.

As Mikaela's original handler, I would obviously appreciate any effort to save her, and might be in a position to discuss repayment.

While I don't expect a hero, I will accept death ideas. Also, I may swap. So send ideas for both Sterling and Madelyn.

I know, don't worry. If you glance over a few of the older announcements, that's part of Leonardo's character. I guess that might not have been the best call in creating this character, but oh well. What's done is done in his personality. He got Harold's death wrong and a few others.

Oh hey, completely forgot I had a hero left.

Heroing Timothy Walker for Mason Ross. (OOC because there's no way that'd happen IC)

Death rights claimed folks, sorry.

It'd be quite cool if Mikaela were saved (I know Kyle, as above, would definitely like it), but I'd like some ideas for scenes either way, as I honestly have no idea about how to get her killed. Inbox is open. : )

A quick addition to the announcement (the first post has also been edited to include this information):

If you fail to do so, your character gets yanked and inactive killed. It doesn't matter if you were supposed to win; inactivity will be enforced.

Please note that six days is the absolute maximum. Really, it should take you much less than that. Bookkeeping is going to be very strict on this; you can and will get busted if you stray over 144 hours at all.

Three hours and forty-one minutes for cards.
