Ooh, an episode of "Survivor"? Interesting! :) These would be the items I'd bring if I were really trapped on a desert island:

1. A lighter
Lighter by wojtar

Perfect for starting fires (especially for cooking), as well as making torches to navigate at night and/or distress signals to any passing aircraft.

2. A cooking pot>
Totoro Pot by XxH3LLOxKiMCHixX

Not only is this particular pot's design super cute (yay Totoro!), but it's probably the most important item in this list. Water is especially crucial - people have been known to survive without food for a few weeks, but no one has survived dehydration beyond just a few days. If anything, I'd primarily use this pot to collect seawater from the ocean, then boil it and collect the resulting vaporized/condensed water which is now no longer salty. This way, I'd have an unending supply of water all to myself.

3. A hunting knife
Longship Hunting Knife by LongshipArmoury

Perfect for cutting through animal skin and meat (meal preparation) and dense shrubbery, as well as defending myself from unexpected attacks. Basically the ultimate multi-purpose tool!

4. An axe
Dwarven axe by racoonart

Primarily used for chopping up firewood, as well as creating building materials for a small hut and/or benches. Plus, this dwarven axe simply looks awesome. :D

5. A rifle
.308 Hunting Rifle by AirborneLeaf

I'm not exactly the most aggressive person in the world, and my fitness levels aren't quite where I want them to be (need to work on that...), but at least with a rifle I can even out the playing field a little. Most animals would likely run a lot faster than I do if they sensed they were in danger, so going after them with the hunting knife wouldn't be too ideal. A much better approach would be to sneak up on them with this bad boy right here. ;P

I would take Monster Energy Drinks because I drink those almost every day. c: They're that one thing I NEED to survive by chloee1784  
I would take a fishing pole with me so I can make fish, and also so I can have food to survive. I'll be able to find bait somewhere. :3 Fishing Pole by amanduhmiller  
I would take a solar-powered grill(if those even exist) with me so I can cook my fish, because there is NO way I'm eating raw fish. ewe On A Grill by Clair-e-scapist
I would take a boat like this(without that lady in there) because I wanna go places, and it would be boring just sitting there alone. x'D Teaser of Lake Erie Shoot by IDiivil-Official  
I would take Vriska with me because I love her and I would have somebody to...make out with. ewe Yeah but someone to be with and lean on and shit because I love Vriska and of course if you're gonna be deserted on an island, it'll be better with someone by your side! <3 ;u;Homestuck:  Vriska by LegendaryFrog    
DasGhul Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014   General Artist

I would take a weapon Choose Your Weapon Of Choice by Estruda to kill and eat stuff, electricity Crossroads by DpressedSoul for connectivity, connectivity so I can post pictures of myself while killing and eating stuff no permission by davedavid303 on dA, and for personal reasons, a What a delicious brain you had! by thergothon cat. :meow:

Plus, maybe, a boat Onwards to Freedom by Sleepwalker1803 or something. :shrug:

the pink lotus by hadas64 Baby Cerberus by Evolvana Ancient stars map by ViRALY Handmade Crossbow by KaligulaPRO Titan by XRosewaterX

* I would need a mandala for deep meditation and to comfort myself, just to be happy with me alone :)
* Furthermore I would need that baby cerberus to watch over me. You can never know what lives on a desert island.
* The ancient star map would help me find my direction in the night as a replacement of a compass.
* When I am too hungry and I cannot get anything around to it, I can use the cross-bow to shoot the baby cerberus because the dragon can watch over me as well.
* At last, the dragon. He is keeping my sword for my self-defense, serves as a light/fire/warmth giver (grill the meat, send fire signal into the air and others) and as a guardian as well.

Thanks so much for picking one of my answers for last week as a winner! :la: that's very kind of you~
DecepticonFlamewar Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
* I would want Suicune from Pokemon to purify drinking water for me.
* Likewise, I'd need an electric Pokemon like Manectric to power my devices. Since it's one of my brother's favorite Pokemon, we'll use it to double for him as well. 
* A laptop computer with appropriate cables would enable me to stay on deviantART and chat with my friends!
* A satellite Internet linkup would be needed so the computer was good for more than minesweeper.

Cute Doofenshmirtz by Leibi97 100 iPad wallpapers by Psychopulse My Pooh... by Just-To-Look1 Books Books Books by LuthienAngel Pizza by DAV-19

If I were to be stuck on a desert island, I would need Dr. Doofenshmirtz (because he's my favorite character. Plus, he looks cute. :3), an iPad (don't mind the wallpaper in the deviation above) to check out deviantART, my small Winnie the Pooh plushie (secret: I sleep with it every night. Plus, I didn't make it.), some books in case my iPad accidentally gets eaten by a hundred piranhas disguised as Winnie the Pooh, and PIZZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lewanut Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014
I'm starting off with the assumption that items for escaping the island (helicopter) are implicitly disallowed. Which makes me wonder why I'm stranded on this island to begin with; I'm guessing I'm an exile? Anyway, here are my five picks.

RV Trailer 1 Main Sitting Area by talonboy3
#1: An RV

I'd need someplace to live, and a compact all-in-one home sounds like the best pick. I'd choose a really nice one, with a Wi-Fi hotspot built in. Gas won't be an issue, since I don't plan on actually driving it anywhere; deserted islands have really crummy roads.

Tech Inventory 6 by kproductions
#2: A Computer

So I can connect to the internet, for socialization, entertainment, and knowledge.

Extreme HD Camcorder by invisible3D
#3: A Digital Camcorder

Here's where it starts to get clever. We've already established that I have an internet connection, and I'm on a deserted island, right? I'm thinking viral webshow material, right there. Using sites such as Patreon, I can monetize said webshow, which will let me afford digital downloads, internet service, and whatever material goods I can get have shipped to the island. (I realize that since I'm not under any legal system on this deserted island, there's nothing stopping me from digital piracy, but that's not how I roll.)

gun in white and black by Tanja-A
#4: A Gun

Okay, these things are a political firestorm right now, but keep in mind that I'm not going to be going to the mall with this thing, 'cause there ain't no mall on a deserted island. No, this bad boy's only here to protect me from anything that might wish to harm me, whether it's wild animals or bloodthirsty pirates. I'd be strictly following the Lead Rule, which is "shoot unto others as they are trying to shoot unto you." (Or bite you, or rend you with sharp claws, or whatever the local wildlife's jam happens to be.)

And now, the most important item on this list...

AKW - Nuclear Power Plant by deepbluesheep
#5: A Nuclear Power Plant

Yes, you heard me right. A nuclear power plant. I'm going to need electricity for my RV, my computer, and my camcorder, and having gone nuclear will put my own little private island on the map. Some government or the other is bound to step in to oversee it, and make sure it doesn't fall into the hands of their enemies. That means military and scientists will have to move in onto the island, and they'll need a steady stream of incoming supplies (as well as medical infrastructure). I can then use my webshow revenue to buy food, ammunition, and medical care, as well as whatever luxuries I can get imported (Nintendo games and puzzle magazines). If my show really took off, I might even be able to have a proper house built for me.
withinmeloveresides1 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014  Student Writer
books' love. by M0THart I would need books to survive being on the island, I'd be driven insane without them.
Daft Punk by Cherubun I'd bring Daft Punk (in the AU world where they are actually robots) so that they could help me without needing food and water to survive.
Kiki's Delivery Service by pheleon I would want this adorable plushie of Kiki with me simply to comfort myself with.
Happy Daddy by withinmeloveresides1 Last of all I would want my Dad with me because he has a great mind for common sense and working with his hands. I would not live long stranded on an island by myself.

If I were stuck on a desert island, I would need these four things to live there: my girlfriend for the daily dosis of love, my laptop to check my deviantArt, some cake to feel comfortable and much roses for much more love. ♥ 
I would see this time then as a vacation with my girlfriend because we have finally some time together.
Don't need more to live there, maybe some water but nothing more. ♥

JoannaMoory Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014
You can go far with a survival kit. Not sure if the bike will be useful on an island, though :slow: As the artist says in the comments below the kit, you only need to "add a machete and it's also good for zombie outbreaks."
Books are a necessity, since there might not be much to do on a desert island and I love to read. As long as I got books, I'm happy.
Axe for getting wood for a camp fire and maybe shelter, ashovel for digging and a tent to sleep in.

Get out, live longer to get out and survive, have skills that would be necessary at that point, have skills+book+people who have skills to not kill me and help me the same way I would.

I wouldn't want to be far from dA, so I would have my laptop with me and pray for satellite internet access!

Considering I would have to be out in the sun... a lot... I would need a case of sunscreen to avoid burning! I can burn and get a heat rash on the inside of twenty minutes :relax:

Sunscreen by Ninjacupcake314

I would need plenty of food I can eat, as well as bottled water. If shipwrecked, it would behoove me to collect as many supplies I can!

And, I would want my family with me... of course!

The only reason I'd be stranded on a desert island would be because of a zombie attack.  Therefore, I would need the following items:

Zombie Survival Kit by BantamArt Zombie Survival Guide by musicismylife2010 Bunker by arsenixc Canned preserved food by pacolv Puppy in Tree Stump by AdmiralAngela

1) Zombie survival kit
2) Zombie survival guide
3) Zombie-proof bunker

DestinyRose09 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm. Since this is a desert island, I'll try to be as realistic as possible; obviously electronics (though I would love to bring them *ipad, laptop, internet*) wouldn't work T.T
1. Item 1 Boyfriend by destinyrose09 My boyfriend of 5 years. I'm pretty sure we both can survive, scavenge for food and devise an escape plan together judging from our great problem solving skills. Ahem. Lol.
2. Hammie item #2 by destinyrose09 This is Hammie, my glutton hamster christmas present. I need him with me, because NO ONE would take care of him otherwise.
3. Item #3 Razor by destinyrose09 A razor (or razors). I absolutely cannot stand hairy legs or armpits as a woman. I NEED THESE. LOL
4. Item #4 Pills by destinyrose09 Contraceptive Pills. AHA! Stranded on a desert with my boyfriend Nosebleed  , Family planning is still important to me. No babies until I'm all set with my career (and married)! :love:
5. Item #5 by destinyrose09 a volleyball, so I can turn it into Wilson once on the island, and recreate "Cast Away." (cant miss that chance!!) What an awesome desert island movie. :la:

Firstly, a survival kit; that way I would be able to bring multiple items at once. :w00t: The books would be to help keep me busy. With so many, I'd never stop reading! :love: Next, valentine chocolate cupcakes with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream & strawberry filling... I don't think I need to explain why. :drool: And, of course, my lap top. I could continue my writing and keep contact with the outside world. :highfive: Last, but not least, my good friend For-the-Third-Time. I'd drag her along to keep me company.

Here we go~

If I was on a desert island, I wouldn't want to be alone. I'd take (or force..heh) my best friend Terrafan4242 to come with me. She's like a sister to me, and I couldn't imagine being without her. So, it makes sense that we'd have to survive on a desert island together! As for what I would bring with me, first, a sketchbook to document out adventure with doodles and writings. So if we unfortunately succumb to cannibalism :lol: someone will find it in the future and know of our story! Like an artists version of a time capsule!
Sketchbook by HBisnt
I would bring a knife (or set of knifes) in order to forage for food and defend myself.
knife by pich
As for rations, I'd proably use native island life and fish to create carious types of homemade sushi. While I might not be able to get rice, I'm sure I can find seaweed. I've watched Chopped on the food network, I know how to work with weird ingredients. So we'll be set~
Sushi by Freacore
Lastly, I would bring some sort of camping set or tent, in order to shield myself and my friend from the elements. Maybe it'll have a flashlight or something we can use to signal for help
Tent by pepperin

p.s. Totally loved how this made me search for things I would never have searched before. I added that last piece to me favorites~ :D

- knives~ (to kill and to cook! knives are very useful for this reason, and if theres nothing to cook it cuts plants well~)

and the person;
katniss from hunger games (she is awesome with the bow and arrow so great for the longer range shots, increasing our chance of surviving, afterall she survived the games~)
