Whoa, I am stupified to say the least. That was amazingly written.

I don't think "morbid" is the right word. "Incredible" definitely describes this story-all your writing, actually-but "morbid" does not.
I think the plot itself, the ultimate paradox of "one of these people is going to die" has a macabre beauty to it. Your characters are artfully developed, especially The Club. And the climactic fight was orchestrated beautifully...I love the certainty with which you climax, only to have that certainty shattered in a sentence. My only criticism of the piece is the Two-Blade Woman's final line. It seems such a trite thing to say and makes her character static. It's also confusing because if she had three blades all along and she just used the third in this fight, why would she change her name for the next fight? Obviously this fight was the first fight of the Three Blade Woman...which makes the statement banal and not true to character. Does that make sense? I don't think I'm explaining myself well.
Don't get me wrong. I think it's an incredible piece; it positively gave me chills. I just think the ending could use some work.

I have to say very original though a little on the morbid side. Keep on writing
