Okay so this is another journal about my long on hiatus fanfic series of TD called "Survival of the Fittest". Again though it's kind of hardly a proper fanfic since the only canon characters meant to appear and be really important to it are Chris and Chef while other connections lie in SOME members of the cast being future children or relatives of the main cast (really only to show the fic takes place in the future and has SOME connection to the main series besides only having Chris and Chef in it). But there have been fanfics with even less influence by the canon people so yeah. Now to be fair, all of the contestants are my own OCs. But these are OCs exclusive to this rather than my main ones because alot of these guys are, well, meant to meet demises.
Because as the title suggests: It's Total Drama gone Hunger Games/Battle Royale style. As in, Chris has lured 54 teenagers to an island and told them they need to start literally murdering eachother in order to win 1 million dollars. Most of them take it as a joke, but others take it seriously while others probably were going to commit murder regardless.
But yes, 54 characters. May add more though. My limit would be 60 or 64. The reason for such a large cast is that most of them are going to die and also sometimes do so in rapid succession, so it pays to have a larger cast that way the story can still have length to it despite the times where the deaths are rapid. It's not like a competition story typically is, there will commonly be more than one death per chapter especially early on. The deaths will range from being comedically over the top, to dramatic, to downright gruesome as all hell. Depending on the death scene and the significance/lack thereof of the character dying.
There will be more than just murder and bloodshed there. Romance, Mysteries, and other drama will all be present here. Though it won't really be a secret who the main killer is since it's not like one of those stories. Like, it's no secret who's killing MOST of the people once I post it. However there will be some characters in this who may surprise you and some death scenes you may be surprised by too (Even though all of the characters are OCs except for Chris and Chef).
Now, obviously the story also takes place in the future. The old cast members are all grown up and the TDI-TDPI ones are old enough to at least have teenage kids of their own, but it's not specified ever how far into the future this specifically is. Only a handful of the cast is connected to the original cast, and even then that is pretty much hardly ever, if ever, mentioned or relevant to the story. It's basically just a behind the scenes trivia and a hint to what the character may look like rather than an important story piece. It's also really just a way of connecting this with the main series since Chris and Chef themselves aren't even going to have many appearances. Mainly because Chris knows if he stays where the action is this time he'd be putting himself in lethal danger haha.
As for the characters? I'm still working their names and appearances out to be honest. I have some already finalized but most of those are the ones who have too much importance in the story-line to be changed all that much. I am readjusting the old cast-SOTF cast relations though, making less of them related to the old cast. It's only gonna be like a few of them, basically.
Also this story is NOT related to any of my other fanfics. I would post the old version of the story on here via typing it out, but with the advent of TDAS sinking the damn original island, I have to rewrite this thing to make the setting of the story being in the future make sense.
