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?"

Indignation is not a Hyuuga trait. And yet there, encompassing the total sum of his emotions (limited as they were), was just that in Neji's reply.

"Absolutely not," he replied.

"So you're rescinding on the bet then."

He flustered a bit, just barely but enough for his teammate of many years to see. "I don't see the point," he attempted.

She put her hands on her hips. "It is a well known fact that there is always a heartthrob for ever genin class. You were ours, Sasuke was his year's. The debate over who was the better resulted in the kunoichi of our classes regularly coming to blows. In fact, there is still resentment over the whole affair."

"If you had time to debate things like that, you should have been training."

"Please, as if I would get involved with petty squabbles," she replied waving him off immediately. Almost too quickly, he noted. "Look at it this way, this will finally bring closure and peace to the kunoichi of the village."

He didn't know what to say. "Uchiha will never agree."

"Agree to what?"

As if on cue, the brooding heir of the Uchiha clan meandered into the forest. Tenten's face lit up on seeing him and despite his initial plan to make Neji jealous, he suddenly felt some trepidation over her joy in seeing him.

"Neji and I are making a bet. I think that if it came down to it, you would be able to get more girls to agree to go on a date with you then he would."

Sasuke looked over at Neji. Neji looked over at Sasuke.

"Che, like I would ever lose to him," Sasuke remarked.

"Exactly. As I stated before Tenten, he would never..." Neji paused and looked over at the other prodigy as he finally heard the response. "You can't honestly think you have a chance."

Sasuke gave a dismissing snort. "I used to feed an entire village with Valentine candy I got."

Neji's eyes narrowed. "They used to accuse me of killing an entire forest from the sheer volume of love letters I got."

"So!" Tenten said, jumping between them to prevent it into degrading into a real brawl. "We have a competition!" She paused. "In order to keep things fair, we'll need impartial observers to monitor your progress. Team Eight can monitor Sasuke, Team Ten can monitor Neji. I'll go straighten out the details with the other teams, you two can go get ready and we'll meet at the main gate at six in the evening."

Not wanting to risk either of them rescinding their agreement to participate, she disappeared in a plume of smoke instantly. The two prodigies, however, were not in the mood to back down.

"You're not getting anything out of winning," Neji observed.

Sasuke smirked. "Of course I am. I get the gratitude of your teammate which I'm sure will convince her to agree to go on a date with me."

The birds in the air suddenly disappeared. The forest around them seemed to wither back in fear. A cold wind blew through Konoha and even the great Hokage had to suppress a chill.

"Is there anything wrong, Hokage?" Shizune asked, seeing her mentor suddenly look pale.

"I just... have a bad feeling..." she replied.

As the sun set on Konoha, a small gaggle of people had collected at the front gate. It was originally supposed to be just the two teams that were helping in the judging but it was nearly impossible to keep it secret from the rest of the tightly knit group of friends.

In fact, ten of the original Konoha genins were there. The only two that were missing were the center players in the game. As the clock rolled over to fifteen minutes to six, both finally made their appearance.
