3rd fic, 1st non humor
Battle Royale is a Japanese movie that came out in 2000. It is also a wonderful book and, arguably, a better manga. It was created by Koushun Takami. I want to shake his hand, I am addicted to the world he created.
Chapter 1: "Inauguration"
Government Memorandum 012751
To Whom it May Concern:
Due to the success of the Battle Royale Act in Japan, the inaugural American Battle Royale will commence in twelve days time. Further information about Battle Royale No. 1x, including location and participants, will be released at a later date. The official reason given as to why the act is being instituted is that it is in the best interest of the country and national security. Opposition is expected to be fierce, so the military is being allotted authority over the American public during each Battle Royale until opposition is no longer a threat.
The President will shortly be informed of this revelation. If he is unwilling to "play ball," he will be impeached and the Vice President will take the helm. If he opposes, measures are currently being taken to make the entire cabinet seem corrupt. A puppet cabinet is already established in case this scenario comes to be. The Minister of Defense, including other key political figures, are already on board and support the BR Act.
This memo also marks the induction of the Battle Experiment Division, a new military branch comprised of loyal officials and Special Forces soldiers. It is headed by long time loyalist and chief of foreign affairs Hank "Hammer" Madsen. He claims to have corrected the problems that plagued Japanese Battle Program No. 12. Mr. Madsen is confident in the success of this experiment as are all of us here.
This document should only be viewed by those with the highest security clearance. Therefore, the President and his cabinet, Congress, etc, should never lay eyes on this form. Keep it under the highest security.
Ah, so there it is, the prologue to my long awaited (by me) Battle Royale fanfic. I hope you are looking forward to the rest. As always, feedback, positive or negative, is greatly appreciated.
