Title: Fic Pick

I'm writing up a BR fic and I need some help picking one of the scenarios.

The first is Battle Royale: Breaking Old Habits, a plot in which the Republic of the Greater East Asia has been steadily losing their influence upon the subjects whom they rule over. So in one desperate attempt, they launch BR Act: Gedatsu. Gedatsu is meant as a deterrance for rebellion using three groups of 11th graders from the countries of USA, England, and Russia. The setting takes place on the island of Bontekoe, Greenland. Pretty much Artic Combat.

The other, Doomed to Obscurity, is a rather interesting one. Following the concept the manga follows BR being a reality show, the government decides to add some spice to thier latest Program incarnation. Instead of going with the 9th graders for starters, 11th graders are chosen for this Program and the battleground is one of which the BR Act has never seen. The "warfront" is onboard a luxury cruise liner (think Titanic) of which the individual rooms and cabins become danger zones and the lifeboats have been removed. Save for one, a submersible on board which is in a Danger Zone until only one lives, then the Zone is deactivated. But, the sea can hold many surprises.

Of the two, the second sounds a bit more enthralling.

Number two has been done before, and number one would probably start a war between the Republic and those three countries, but it depends how you work them.

The only one I know of using a ship was a script like fic that was never completed (only 2 short chaps). It was meh IMO. Other than that, I saw nothing of the sort on fanfiction.net (and I'm anal about stuff like that, trying to create something fresh and new... especially since I had the idea for KH3 before I played and got the special ending for KH2. >>)

May I ask why you want to change it to 11th graders? I don't known how old they'd be but it seems they'd be older then normal BR kids, personally when people put older people into BR I think it loses some of it's point, it't not adults punishing other adults, its adults punishing the innocent, children.

*Twitches* can I just say, there is no Reality tv show concept in the BR manga, all the TV show bullshit was made up by the idiot who 'adapted' the manga.


Both the ideas seem ok, although the first one would create problems
1) the Republic don't have contact with the other countries, so how would they kidnap the kids?
2) it removes the concept of "could you kill your best friend" and it becomes "could you kill a total stranger who doesn't even speak the same language as you?"

The second fic i've seen done several times already, it's not on fanfiction.net but if you know of the Battle Royale Film forums a poster called "Vizier Mountain" already posted a fic with a BR on a luxury cruise liner.

Yeah, the second sounds a lot better, but make it really unique!!!
