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?"

Sasuke was the first to arrive. An amused assembly of their shinobi friends watched as he suddenly appeared, emerging from a whirlwind of faded autumn leaves. (Rather strangely, for it was still in the middle of spring.) There were quite a few appreciative noises from the kunoichi of the group; the Uchiha was dressed in a smart black suit, his jacket slung over a shoulder, tie loosened and sleeves rolled up to the elbows. Evidently he was going in for the kill.

Tenten smiled cheerfully when he stalked towards her, a confident smirk on his face. “Hello, Sasuke.”

She looked him up and down unabashedly, nodding approvingly. While secretly she thought that there was no comparison between the two heartthrobs of Konoha – like anyone could actually best Neji! - she was pretty sure that Sasuke would win the bet, simply because out of the two ice cubes Sasuke was younger, a little more reckless, more approachable. Neji, unlike Sasuke, was too afraid of showing a wilder side, of breaking the rules.

(Oh, how wrong she was.)

Her foremost reason for coming up with this bet – what she had managed to convince herself, anyway – was that she wanted to force Neji into wearing a French maid costume. However, a secret, more selfish motivation came from a hidden insecurity, a hidden fear............that perhaps she liked Hyuuga Neji a lot more than just a friend. Lately her hormones had been performing pirouettes with her emotions whenever the Hyuuga was involved but - but she was Kunoichi, Neji’s best friend and she simply couldn't be in love with him because it would spoil everything and he wouldn't want her anyway and - and challenging him to ask out as many girls as he could would surely prove that she couldn’t care less about who Hyuuga Neji had a romantic interest in, right?

(Oh, how wrong she was.)

“Hyuuga too scared to show up?” Sasuke raised an eyebrow, stepping up close so that Tenten had to look up to meet his eyes.

“In your dreams.”

Tenten glanced to her right and felt her heart flip. Hard.

In the background, Ino and Sakura swapped bemused glances at the possessive snarl that had edged Hyuuga Neji’s voice as he strode through the gate, past the silent cluster of shinobi. He headed straight for Tenten and Sasuke, a dangerous glint in his eyes as he glared at the Uchiha and his rather friendly proximity to his teammate.

Neji was dressed in the traditional grey kosode favoured by his clan, with the addition of two long, thin ceremonial swords tucked into his obi. Tenten couldn’t help but think wistfully that he looked very handsome, the warrior-at-leisure garb bringing out the fact that he was truly nobility to the bone.

“Hyuuga,” Sasuke greeted him sourly. Neji merely nodded, still eyeing the insubstantial distance between the Uchiha and Tenten.

“Let’s get this over with so we can go train, Tenten,” he told her gravely.

Sasuke raised an eyebrow. “Funny. I was just about to ask her the same thing.”

“.....You were?” Tenten blinked.

Neji grit his teeth, glowering darkly at the man. “Tenten wouldn’t want to train with you.”

“That’s up to her, isn’t it?” To her immense surprise, Sasuke slid an arm easily over her shoulders, drawing her close to his chest. “Would you like to train with me after this little game has played out and Hyuuga here has admitted defeat, Tenten?”

“Why, you little – ”

“Whoa, whoa. I thought you two were supposed to ask other girls out, not Tenten,” Kiba broke in hastily.

“I wasn’t –” Neji began, but then stopped abruptly, a slightly confused expression on his face.
