Survival BranchEditTeleported to the Survival Challenge, the duo decide to start quickly. Staying on a serious tone, the two decide that the challenge consisting of a pure survival made it difficult for them to harm any of the alive animals because of the lack of resources. The two immediately start with knocking down the only tree on the island. Retrieving the wood, they decide that creating the essential tools would be the best idea. Cupquake crafting the wooden tools, she digs down and creates wooden tools which she shares with Stacy. Getting blocks of dirt, Stacy blocks up into the bedrock fortress, while Cupquake headed down to find a mine.

In their first night, hostile mobs spawn the island causing Stacy and Cupquake to attack them.Cupquake then finds an abandoned mineshaft, containing chickens. The two talk about their low resources such as food for them and food for the animals. Then decides to make a wheat farm to maintain their health and for their challenge. Stacy and Cupquake went off to pull in the remaining animals to their make-shift cage. Heading down into the caves, the mineshaft provided important items such as string to complete the list. In the mines, they collect coal, iron, an ender pearl, gunpowder, and a lava pool. Dowsing the lava pool into obsidian, they built a Nether Portal, providing a way to enter the Nether.
