Pairings: Mostly Noah/Courtney and all of the canon pairings at the end of TDWT.
Warning: Violence and Character Deaths. This story is pretty dark, especially in the beginning.
Summary: After the end of Total Drama World Tour, some of the contestants wash up on a deserted island. Will they be able to get together and survive?
Courtney felt like she had been plunged into hell. One moment they were laughing at Chris when his лодка capsized and the Далее moment they were swimming for their lives when the sky started to rain down ash and large pieces of rock.
Everyone started swimming right away except for Heather, who was still fixated on the stupid money. Courtney didn't know whether to be scared for her или just furious that she was endangering herself because of her greed. Most of the other contestants didn't even notice her and were just focused on getting away. She didn't even know why she was willing to slow down just to watch. She briefly considered going back to pull her away before she saw a large rock hurtling towards Heather.
Courtney wanted to scream или warn the other girl. Heather had done and сказал(-а) some very nasty things, but now all she could think about was the time when Heather had comforted her when she cried about Duncan Поцелуи Gwen. She had really meant it. For once she hadn't been fake-
She didn't want to see it happen, but she couldn't look away или do anything to prevent it.
Heather eventually saw the rock and screamed.
It was too late.
And she saw it. Heather getting crushed by the rock. She wanted to vomit when seeing the impact. A chill ran up her spine. Courtney found it agonizing just treading water.
Her immediate shock ended when a small rock hit the water near her, close enough to splash her face. She didn't have time to think.
Just swim. Don't be like Heather. Swim and don't look back.
That was what she told herself over and over as she moved through the water, forcing her aching muscles to their limit.
The haze of tears that blurred her vision showed that she was finding the секунда part impossible to carry out.
Noah wasn't a good swimmer. Everyone who wasn't behind him at the start had passed him, even a petrified DJ doggie paddled past him.
Great. I'm going to die because of this stupid show, he thought, trying to avoid thinking too deeply into it или how tired he was getting.
Where would they even go? Wouldn't they get tired eventually? These Вопросы that plagued him made it harder to keep going. Thinking was not the right way to go.
He would go at it one step at a time.
He would catch up to Owen and they would stick with the group. When the вулкан stopped, they would figure something out.
Catching up wouldn't be so easy. He cursed himself for avoiding all athletic activity. If I get out of this alive, I'll at least try to do a sit-up once and awhile.
He was so focused on keeping up his energy, that he almost missed Owen swimming up ahead at an alarmingly slow pace.
"Hey...little..buddy," Owen gasped, losing his breath. Occasionally, the large boy stopped to catch his breath and let Noah catch up to him. A rock almost grazed his shoulder.
"Owen!" Noah cried, picking up his pace. His large friend was too tired to even flinch at the near miss. "Keep going!"
"But I can't leave my little buddy." Owen gasped, trying to force a smile as Noah swam up beside him.
"I think I can manage to keep up." Noah сказал(-а) sarcastically.
Owen laughed, but it had a breathless quality to it.
This was really bad. It was getting harder and harder for Noah to clamp down on his own fear that it wasn't just another game.
Any moment now Chris Mclean was going to swoop by and pick them up in some sort of ridiculous speed лодка with his camera men and producers. The crew would cheer at the заворачивать, обертывание of another season and they would go Главная where Noah could get reacquainted with his video games and try to forget that he had participated in another humiliating season of total drama.
Maybe Courtney had something there with the lawsuit thing...
"-tired..." Owen gasped. "Maybe I should rest."
"We're almost out range." Noah told him. It was an empty statement. He had no idea if that true at all. But there was no way he was letting Owen stop so he could get burnt up by lava.
"I'm slowing Ты down."
"You do realize that Ты were ahead of me."
A scream from just up ahead caused Noah and Owen to look towards the Источник of the sound. It sounded like either Katie или Sadie.
"Kaaattttiiieee!" the voice cried in anguish.
A little bit of his spark returned to Owen's eyes.
"We have to see if they're okay!" he cried.
Noah nodded, shocked by Owen's sudden energy.
He had been on the verge of giving up, but Owen's energy was limitless when it came to helping others. They could hear Sadie starting to wail. Owen let out a frustrated grunt.
"We have to hurry!"
Noah nodded, his arms burning.
He knew why Sadie was crying. There wouldn't be anything they could do to help. Owen had to know too. One look at the crazed desperation in the large boy's eyes showed that he was hoping to disprove what he knew was true.
Noah hung back.
He didn't want to see it.
"Noah-!" Owen looked back at him, his eyes begging him to not leave him to face it alone.
Noah's mouth grew dry. He nodded and swam up beside his friend.
He hated this. Every expletive he knew came to mind as he and Owen made their way to Katie and Sadie.
When they reached them, Owen squeezed Noah's shoulder, shuddering.
Sadie was treading water, holding Katie against her.
Katie wasn't moving.
"No..." Owen whispered.
"Help her!" Sadie sobbed, holding Katie out to Owen. Katie was bleeding heavily from a large gash on the вверх of her head, which looked a bit caved in. There was no way she was alive. Sadie knew, but she definitely wasn't accepting it.
Owen shuddered, trying to avoid looking at Sadie. Her pleading for him to help
Katie who was beyond help was disturbing him.
Noah gently pushed him aside. His arm shook as he pressed a hand against Katie's neck to Показать Sadie that he was feeling for her pulse.
"She's gone..." He told her, his voice a little еще than a whisper.
Sadie's eyes widened, her lower lip quivering violently.
"You have to keep going," Owen urged her on.
"No!" Sadie screamed. "I'll get Courtney! She knows first aid!"
"Wait-!" Noah cried. He knew that dragging a heavily bleeding person around in the ocean wasn't a good idea. "Sharks are attracted to blood! You'll be-!"
Sadie shoved him into Owen, tears running down her eyes. "Courtney will save her!" she repeated stubbornly, leaving a dazed Owen and Noah.
Owen held Noah up as he tried to absorb what happened.
It was real. Somebody was dead. Chris wasn't coming. Was Chris even alive? What about Alejandro and Ezekiel?
"It's really happening." Owen сказал(-а) with tears in his yes.
Noah nodded silently.
"We should go too," Noah сказал(-а) thickly, "we should catch up to the others."
"Do Ты think Sadie will be okay?" Owen asked him.
"I don't know." Noah sighed.
I hope so.
It felt like they had failed Sadie somehow.

Note: I don't hate any of the characters and Heather's pretty high on my Список of вверх characters.:( This fic might get pretty long. There are a lot of characters in the Показать to play with.
