"The Fittest" is a quest for survival that leads through West Allis. While the main character is from Milwaukee, he must walk across most of West Allis as he nearly freezes. A bit like Jack London's "To Build a Fire," but with more drinking and fewer dogs, but not quite Monty Python's Holy Grail. Then again, it might be more of an adventure. We'll discuss. 


  • The quest is the "search for a person, place or thing, tangible or intangible." Specifically, the main character is looking for that certain something that they expect or hope will change their life. - http://www.mit.edu/~mbarker/exercises/exer970117.txt
  • The hero searches for something, someone, or somewhere. In reality, they may be searching for themselves, with the outer journey mirrored internally. They may be joined by a companion, who takes care of minor detail and whose limitations contrast with the hero's greater qualities. - http://changingminds.org/disciplines/storytelling/plots/tobias_plots.htm
  • The plot involves the Protagonist's search for a person, place or thing, tangible or intangible (but must be quantifiable, so think of this as a noun; i.e., immortality). - http://www.tennscreen.com/plots.htm
