The grip they held was nice and tight.

Ilya reached out his hand to Stephanie in turn once he lessened his grip. She clearly hesitated, but after a beat her hand was raised to meet his. They were a group now. Things were going to reach some level of okay, she thought. They just needed to find everyone else. Dave was one, for instance.

Lana nodded, seeing the suggestion that they should get out.

She picked up her rifle, examining it a bit more. This was what they expected her to kill with. She didn't think that it was what was going to happen, though. Lana wasn't a killing sort. Nor, she suspected, Ilya or Stephanie.

After picking up her things, Lana slowly stepped in one direction, towards what she expected was the exit. She didn't want to lose them, not so soon. The birds still laid scattered about, causing Lana to raise her feet to avoid touching them. This was, however, to no avail. Her shoes still occasionally brushed against the corpses, giving her somewhat of a slight jump.

The sooner they got out of here, the better.

Once they were away from the aviary, Lana turned around and waited for Ilya and Stephanie.

She smiled. She knew that even in SOTF, there was still a chance of hope.

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:

- Chat
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
- Anything else I missed

I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.

This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.


Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.

So that was that. Ilya shook hands and cemented his partnership with Batgirl and friend. It wasn't much, but it was something. Would it prove to be a last bastion of decency and hope among the world of savagery and murder, or would it just be a more gentle transition into their inevitable breakup and death? Only time would tell.

For now, Ilya just followed Lana out of the aviary.

Stephanie found herself nodding to herself as they began leaving the aviary. She wasn't really sure why, but she felt like things would be okay in the company she was in. Things almost felt normal. She had the fortune of finding her best friend fairly quickly, and now that they had Ilya with them, she felt safe.

As she picked her way through the dead bodies of the birds that once inhabited the aviary, she couldn't help but hope that it would be the last time she saw anything dead on this island. She doubted it would be.
