Round Robin [ Festival Event ]  
Our first event for this festival. A simple Round Robin game. I will provide you with a small excerpt, and you will follow. Still confused? Just look at the rules.

Round Robin Rules
- This event, I repeat, STARTS NOW.
- Members who are participating are listed on the first post, and you will go in the exact order from that list.
- Wait until your turn. Don't skip anyone unless the person before you does not post in a timely manner and a moderator for this thread writes the word SKIP.
- If you can't think up anything, just post the word SKIP and the next member will be allowed to go. You will not be taken out of the game if you post this.
- If a member does not post within 12 HOURS, you will be skipped automatically for the first time. If you are skipped for a second time, you will be taken off of the Round Robin list. Please don't abuse the time limit.
- Remember that each post has a word limit. You CANNOT double post, so make sure that you get your story/point across effectively.
- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A WRITING GOD FOR THIS CONTEST, BUT YOU MUST AT LEAST BE ABLE TO FORM A LOGICAL SENTENCE AND PASS THE STORY ALONG. I do NOT want to see any net speak during this. I will just delete the post and ask the next member to continue if that is the case.
- When posting, please don't comment to the previous user. It wouldn't make sense to since the next person wouldn't even know anyway. This will keep us from those annoying tiny comments. :)


Don't forget your order please. So, with that said, let's get the game underway. Here is your start off point. Make up whatever you want from here. If there are any questions, please post them in the sign up thread here. If you want me to remind you if you are going next, please leave your email in the sign up thread as well and I will email you when it is your turn. Have fun!

"You do realize how ridiculous this all is, right?"

"Buuuut Neeeeeeeejiiiiiii," Naruto whined, tagging after the incensed Hyuuga like some sort of really persistent puppy. "Why won't you listen to meeeeeee?" His voice was pitched even higher than it normally was - it annoyed most people. What most people didn't know is that Naruto had long ago realized this, and used his Powers of Annoyance for his own benefit.

Neji grit his teeth and increased his pace; Naruto merely bounced alongside, his boundless energy not at all taxed by this. "Go away, Uzumaki!" he barked. "Why are you so eager to play dress-up anyway? Aren't you a male?"

Naruto sniggered. "Oi, long-hair, I really don't think you're anyone to be criticizing someone else for manliness. Especially when you're wearing a skirt."

"It is NOT a skirt, fool."

"Coulda FOOLED me."

* * *

Tenten shook her head. "Gai-sensei, I can't interfere with the contest like that. It would be unethical of me, as the judge and organizer. If you want Neji to sing -" SHE wanted Neji to sing, " - you have to convince him yourselves."

Gai and Lee stared at her with great mournful eyes, and Tenten felt herself wavering. She grit her teeth - very like, though she didn't know it, as her teammate was doing at that very moment. "I said no! I am not going to--"

* * *

"--change my clothing based on your advice, Uzumaki."

The young jinchuuriki's face crinkled into an indignant, slit-eyed expression. "Hey, what's that supposed to mean?"

Neji leveled a flat glare in his direction. "Why should I follow the suggestions of someone who's been chasing the same kunoichi with rather pathetic devotion ever since the Academy? With nothing to show for it except bruises? Yes, real motivation there."

Naruto bristled. "I'll have you know that I have more to show for it than bruises! Sakura-chan likes me! I was able to convince her to -" His jaw snapped shut as he was about to spill the truth of the infamous French maid costume.

"Able to what, Uzumaki?"

"Never mind." Naruto shook his head, and when he looked back at Neji the expression on his face was serious and a little sad. "And why do you call devotion pathetic? That's why you haven't been able to win Tenten-chan, you know. You need to be able to let go of your damn pride long enough to tell her."

Neji gaped at the unexpected seriousness, then flushed. "Wha- I don't know what you are talking about."

Naruto laughed softly. "Oh come on, Neji. Everyone knows that--"

* * *

"--you can't just stroll up and say, 'Oh, Neji, would you please sing love-songs for me - I mean, for my sake - in front of an audience.'" Tenten spun on her heel and began to stalk away.

She had gotten a fair distance from her disappointed (but already hatching alternate plots) teammates within a short time, using a summoned bolo knife to hack her way throug thick Konoha forest.

She sighed exasperatedly and swung herself into a large tree, choosing the largest branch to sprawl on. Within a short time - though she didn't mean to - she had fallen asleep, not even noticing when a dark-haired member of the Konoha Rookie 9 (why that term encompassed Team 7, 8, 10 and Gai - who were not even 9 in number, and had not been Rookies for several years, she would never know) landed on the treebranch, and gazed at her quietly.
