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?"

(It's been 12 hours. I'm posting.)

“Actually, Kiba,” Sasuke smirked. “All girls in Konoha are fair game. The terms of the bet don’t exclude Tenten.” He turned back to Tenten. “Tenten, would you like to go out with me?”

“Absolutely not!”

Tenten glared at her teammate. Not that she wanted to go out with Sasuke, but… “Who do you think you are, Neji, that you can tell me who I can and can’t date?”

Tenten’s voice could have frozen magma. Even Sasuke felt chill go up his spine from Tenten’s killer intent. Considering he’d faced both Orochimaru and Itachi in battle, that was saying something. (Neither of them were slouches in the killer intent department.)

“Wait!” Neji’s instinct for self-preservation kicked-in. “I mean this was your idea. So you need to remain impartial to supervise our progress.”

Outwardly, Sasuke shrugged and remained as indifferent as ever. But Inner Sasuke crowed at Neji’s obvious display of jealousy. This is how you do it, Naruto. I hope you’re taking notes because I’m so going to rub this in during our next spar.

Tenten looked a little mollified.

“Sakura, would you like to go out with me?”

(Inner Sakura did a victory dance. “Yes! Finally, a date with Sasuke!”)

“I’d love to Sasuke.” Sakura gave Ino a superior smile. Take that, Ino-pig!

“What about you, Ino?”

“Of course, darling! Did you even need to ask?” Ino returned Sakura’s superior smile – with interest. Back at you, forehead-girl! (Over the years, Ino and Sakura had toned down their rivalry and were actually best friends again. But old habits are hard to break.)


“M-m-me?” Hinata stuttered. “B-but…”

“No way!” exclaimed Naruto and Kiba simultaneously.

“Naruto-kun… Kiba-kun…”

“Leave Hinata out of this you jerk!”

Sasuke hmmed. But he didn’t push the issue. He had bigger fish to fry.

“Well, Hyuuga. Looks like the score is 2-0. You’d better hurry. The early shinobi gets the prey. Or if you’d like, you can admit defeat right here.”

Neji grit his teeth and attempted to reign in his temper. Why that little…

Kakashi was having a good day.

He strolled leisurely into the Jounin break room (a spacious room with dozens of squashy chairs, nicked tables, and a kitchenette with an unending supply of coffee and tea for those late nights) his favorite book in hand. For once, he’d completed everything on his to-do list - and it wasn't even noon yet. Despite everyone’s belief to the contrary, Kakashi did have an extensive to-do list.

Complete and turn in mission reports? Check.

Visit the Memorial stone and pay his respects? Check.

Irritate at least one person by being extremely tardy? Check.

Oh wait. How could he have forgotten his daily encounter with a certain green-spandex clad jounin? Gai, Kurenai, and Asuma were already in the break room.

“Ah! My Eternal Rival Kakashi! Let us have another competition! The current score is 284 to 285 – in your favor. You must allow me the opportunity to regain victory! Hahaha!” Gai’s smile was blinding.

“Speaking of competitions,” Asuma interrupted, “have you heard what your darling students are up to today? Specifically, Neji and Sasuke? It appears they’re having a competition themselves.” Asuma quickly explained the purpose of the wager to his fellow jounin.

“Yosh! My Eternal Rival! The power of youth is moving me!” Gai had tears streaming down his face. “Our students reflect on us! If Neji wins, you must admit publicly that I am your better! If he does not (and Sasuke wins), then I will run around Konoha 100 times…” Gai paused for dramatic effect. “… On my hands!

“Eh… What was that? Did you say something, Gai?” Kakashi put his pinky in his ear and turned another page of his favorite book.

Gai face-planted on the floor and started crying. “Oh! How cool and hip you are, my Eternal Rival!”

Kakashi smirked – not that anyone could tell – behind the book and beneath his mask. Tormenting Gai was fun! No wonder it was on his to-do list.

Give Gai a hard time? Check.

Maybe he would go spy on his brats today.
