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?"
Current Mood: gigglygiggly

How, oh how...

The question resounded in her mind over and over again. Not like a broken record, but more of like a ripple through a lake. With effects which can be felt across the entire surface on a clear day.

And indeed, the sun was shinning, the birds were chirping and there was not a cloud in the sky. The perfect day for a well made plan.

The only question of it, went back to how.

They arrived at the sparring field. And without even a bit of hesitation, began the daily stretches that had become a habit for them as breathing or walking, ever since the month prior to the finals of the chuunin exams.

Like any excellent kunoichi, deception was a large part of Tenten's game. Being around the Hyuuga prodigy ironically enough, has helped her greatly in this department. It was usually hard to keep things from him, but nevertheless she'd grown good at it over the years.

"I'm perfectly alright Neji. As alright as anyone can be after seeing Sakura-san in a French maid outfit. My question to you is, are you alright? Seeing a pretty girl like her in such a way had no affect on you at all?"

A steady quiet followed her question.

They finished their stretches, and proceeded into the katas.

"You know me very little if you think that I'd be affected by such a display."

"That's true... you never seem to be very interested in girls."

The art of deception was more like a parry than a block. A skilled parry turns the opponent's movement and makes it into one's own attack.

"You're not affected by girls... so I wonder... are you ever affected by guys?"

"No. Don't even think of something so ridiculous."

Besides the art of deception, something else she had also learned... how to take advantage of any openings she saw available in a virtually fail-proof defense.

"Why's it so ridiculous, Neji? Haven't you ever been curious about your own preferences? Likes and dislikes? Having feelings for the opposite sex is normal for people our age. It's sort of abnormal for you not to have them at all."

The katas were finised. They began to engage in a light spar. Tenten retrieved her kunai, and Neji his. They would gradually move on to more serious fighting in which the conversation would have to end. But before that...

"I have them. But I prefer not to let them get in the way."

Aha... an openning.
