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!

(Posting. 12 hours. Etc.)

Hyuuga Neji was having a Very Bad Night.

As the sun had disappeared below the horizon line, so had Neji's temper. Really, what was he doing? Walking around Konoha in search of a likely girl to approach and then lie to? Because Tenten didn't actually expect him to date any of these women, did she? It was simply a competition to see how many would actually agree to such a thing.


He'd left the gates pretty quickly, a little miffed that Sasuke had asked out the females in the vicinity before him. He certainly didn't want to do the same thing and let the Uchiha think Neji needed any sort of example. Because he didn't. He was a Hyuuga, he could certainly complete this mission better than that brat, Sasuke.

Except that an hour had passed and he had yet to approach a single girl.

"So, let's see, uhm, zilch, zero, nadda, and - oh yes - nothing." Ino's eyes glittered at him from her too cheerful face. "I'm sure Sasuke-kun has loads of names by now."

"Che," Shikamaru muttered beside her, chewing lazily on a piece of grass. He said nothing else but Neji suddenly felt that he was the only one speaking sense that night.

"Offer them food, Neji. Chocolate. Can't resist it." Chouji advised, stuffing another potato chip in his mouth. Neji felt his eyebrow start to twitch. The day he had to resort to food as a lure (he had a particularly vivid picture of putting a candy bar in the mouth of a steel trap cage) would be the day he cut his hair and started wearing green jumpsuits.

He just needed the right approach.

Glancing to the side, he spotted a likely subject. A little too tall for his liking, and her hair was blonde not dark, and it was obvious she was no kunoichi (Neji gave a mental snort) but she would do. He walked towards her purposefully, hand on the hilt of one of his ceremonial katanas.

"Hey. You."

The girl halted, looked over at him - white eyes gleaming in the darkness, stern expression, holy crap he's got a sword - gave a little squeak of surprise and pelted into the nearest restaurant.

Behind him, Ino giggled and sauntered up beside him, almost beside herself with glee. "You sure know how to charm them, don't you?"

Neji quelled the urge to rub his temples.

Very Bad Night indeed.

Maito Gai observed his wavering student high atop the restaurant, carefully hidden by one of the eaves. He had obviously arrived just in time. His brilliant student was faltering! His youthful stamina choked by the first taste of failure! Gai clenched a fist in fervent determination. He had to do something. The hearts of young girls everywhere depended on it!

"Never fear, Neji," Gai said, careful not to be overheard by the group below. "I won't let you fight alone! Together, we will conquer!"

The girls of Konoha felt a sudden chill. Maito Gai simply rubbed the tears from his cheeks and got to work.
