Hey I've watched and contributed to everyone else hunger games so I decided to create my own. This will be a normal games not a quarter quell or include district 13 or the capitol.
-token (if they have one)
-reaping info (optional)
A giant castle. The cornucopia is in the middle of the court yard the castle is surrounded by a mote. The castle is 5 floors high with mutts roaming the halls. Suits of armor are along the walls. Also around the cornucopia is a beautiful garden with an apple tree. And that's it. No items in the cornucopia. They are hidden around the castle.
You can ask for for any of these things-
anyone can sponsor a tribute just say the tributes name and the item you want. if you wish to contribute to the money on the tribute comment on the post. Meaning if person 1 wants to give tribute a some food he may only get an apple or two, bread or meat. if person 2 also wants to give food they just comment on person 1 comment so the tribute gets more food, fish,and a whole turkey. This aren't literal examples but just to give the basic idea.

The square in district one is buzzing with excitement. Many teenagers waiting for there opportunity to shine and win the games for their district. The stage in front of the justice building has the past victors of the hunger games (about 10 of them) along with the mayor and Sunny Nealson, the district escort. Sunny smiles to the crowd and talks about the dark days and how the hunger games was born. She saids in a loud clear voice, "Now let the reaping begin!" She pulls a name out of the glass ball to her left, "Are female tribute is Naarah Tompkins!" A blond girl with curly hair walks up to the stage. She is breath takingly beautiful with a cocky grin. Sunny reaches into the bowl to her right. "Are male tribute is CreamDonahew!" A boy with tan skin and red hair walks up to the stage. He has his hands pressed together, as if he's praying, and he stares at the sun.
The justice building sots in front of the Nut and in front of that is a large stage. Victors and the mayor standing on it looking out at the crowd of young teenagers, scratch that, solders. Natia Crew the district escort talks about the dark days before reaching into the glass bowl full of male names. "The male tribute for district 2 is Julian Moore!" She saids in her capitol accent. A young boy slowly walks to the stage. He is overweight and 13 years old and looks extremely scared. When he gets on stage Natia calls out, "Any volunteers?" Adrian Christenson raises his hand and saids in a strong voice, "I volunteer as tribute." Natia nods approvingly. Adrian pats Julian on the shoulder as he switches places with him. Natia pulls a female name from the glass ball she barley has time to read the name before Evelyn Dreamcatcher volunteers as tribute. Natia seems overjoyed at the fact two people volunteered and the chances of winning is high.
District 3's escort Zap Troll claps enthusiastically. "Well lets get this reaping rolling!" He grabs a name from the female ball to his left. He reads the paper, "Anna Grenwism!" Anna walks up t the stage no tears but she appears to be shaking. Her black eyes look pleadingly at the crowd. No one volunteers. Zap gives her a reassuring shoulder squeeze and gets a name from the boys bowl. "Ulrich Wright!" He calls. An 18 year old boy starts to walk up to the stage but half way there starts crying his eyes out. A boy with light brown hair runs up to him and yells, "I'll volunteer for him!" Zap turns his head to the side but shrugs it off and waves him on stage.
Kajama Odair volunteers for her neighbor girl. She hates seeing 12-year-olds in the arena it makes her cry. Clarson Clickman the district escort smiles and nods respectfully. He pulls a name from the male bowl. "Centril Bowlman!" when Centril arrives on stage Clarson asks for volunteers. Cedar Mellark steps forward desperate to protect his friend Kajama. Clarson shakes his head and mutters, "Volunteers, why do they always happen?"
The square is filled with families. children clinging to their parents for a few more moments before walking into the square. The stage has A women with bright pink hair with two large bowls next to her. "Lets the reaping of this hunger games begin!" She pulls a name from the female bowl and reads clearly, "Cathy James!" Cathy walks up steadily breathing deeply. Past victors smile to each other. The district escort pulls out another slip of paper, "Rick Jones!" Rick walks from the back of the square. The crowd murmurs to its self. The worst age to be reaped is 12 but 13 is very much better.
District 6 is all concrete. Very few trees are viewable. The stage is made of concrete as well. Two morphling addicted victors play with each others hair absentminded. The escort, Bibi Vivi, smiles warmly at a sea of cold faces. "Lets start with the girls!" She reaches deep into the bowl and pulls out the slip of people and with a flourish of her hand has it open, "The female tribute is Bessy Tower!" Mayor Tower next to her stiffens. A few of the poor family call out things like, "About time!" or "Finally someone rich!" Bessy stands next to Bibi crying silent tears. Bibi snatches the first piece of paper she touches from the male bowl. "Male tribute is Hinder Black!" A boy with jet black hair and dark eyes he has a dark tattoo on his pale skin. He takes his walk with pride and shakes Bessy's hand.
District 7's square is full of beautiful trees. The tributes stand on the stage. Plank oak and Cypress Beech. Mixed reactions from everyone. No one wants to see two kids go fight to the death but no one likes Plank and Cypress. The districts biggest bullies. Even their parents don't want anything to do with them. A few of their biggest targets even make calls of joy.
Fabby Croon's eyes widen. In all her years as district 8's escort she has never seen a tribute volunteers the way Eve Cotton did. Screaming at the top of her lungs, "I wish to volunteer for this event kind women!" Everyone knows Eve is a little loopy taking in direct fumes from the factory. Fabby takes a step away from Eve and grabs a male name from the bowl. "Thread Form is th....." Her words get drowned out by the crowds cheers. Thread is considered the worst person in the district. Hated by everyone. Loved by peacekeepers. Thread starts to sob and this brings on another round of cheers.
District 9's square smells like fresh bread. Well all of district 9 smells like fresh bread. Much to the displeasure of the starving children. The only living victor of district 9 is Sandy Thorne. The district escort, Red Wormwood, reaches into the female glass ball, "The female tribute is Willow Thorne!" Sandy's heart tightens. Her adoptive daughter has been reaped. The chances are astronomical. Willow starts to cry before she even moves towards the stage. A peace keeper escorts her to the stage. Sandy gives her adoptive daughter and hug and takes a deep breath before the next blow hits her. "The male tribute is Elder Thorne." Sandy feels like some has punched her in the face. This must be rigged. Both of her adoptive children have been reaped. This sets of a new round of crying for Willow and starts Elder off.
Jadynette Olive smiles at the crowd of open mouths. Volunteering for an 18 year old who is probably the smartest and strongest person in the district. District 10's escort looks sad at the fact that she went from a promising tribute to a b***** looking one. Herflex smiles. He is the male tribute and likes the idea of having Jadynette as a tribute he thinks he can kill her easily. Both volunteers both believe they are better than everyone else.
Seeder and Chaff make polite conversation with Leppa Reet the new district escort. Leppa nervously reads off a note card about the dark days. She then reaches deep into the bowl full of female names. "Our female tribute for district 11 is Mara Lockhart!" Mara smiles to her self. She has always wanted a chance to kill but was still a little nervous to attempt the games. After she gets on stage Leppa pulls out a male name, "Monroe Dew!" She calls out. After a small black boy gets onstage Leppa asks for any volunteers. Ramm Lockhart steps forward, "I volunteer to go into the arena with my sister." He didn't need to say they were related. Same tan skin, same brown hair, same nose they were very obviously brother and sister.
Effie trinket looks out into the crowd. It's full of starving children but she smiles out and hopes for the best. She pulls out a name from the female bowl, "Leevy Crews!" Leevy a girl from the seam walks slowly up to the stage. Mariah Abernathey volunteers as tribute. Effie backtracks and is quite flustered at the volunteer. They don't happen that often, well, not at all in district 12. Effie grabs a name from the middle of the male bowl. She opens it and reads carefully pronouncing the name, "Jeremiah Heddorian!" Jeremiah walks up with mixed emotion. Always wanting to go to the capitol but not as a tribute in the games. THe only reason he wants to go to the capitol is to see if his mom is an avox there.
The tributes rise slowly into the arena. All dressed in what looks to be gray armor but ads no protection to the tributes them selves. The arena it self is a giant castle. With high ceilings and windows. Full of big rooms that range from bathrooms to bed rooms to kitchens. With four tall towers at the corners. The only area outside other than the cornacopia which is about the size of a court yard (Decor of a court yard too, with stone benches, a fountain of clean water and one apple tree with 45 apples and it doesn't grow anymore.) With the cornucopia in the dead center. The tributes are only a few feet away from each other. "Ladies and Gentlemen let the 17th hunger games begin!” No one moves. One minute later the gong rings. Still no one moves.
Quite obviously there are no weapons anywhere in the cornucopia. Now no one moving has delayed to the point where no one wants to make the first move. Eve Cotton from District 8 turns on her heel and walks calmly to the opening into the castle. Everyone watches her. Suddenly its a mad dash in every direction.
All the careers get together along with Herflex Nome District 10, Jadynette Oliver district 10, and Mariah Abernathey District 12 who have a predetermined deal. The careers accepts them based on their attitudes alone.
Thread Form from District 8 in seeing the careers already establishing camp in the cornucopia sprints for the apple tree. The Careers yell in anger and Cedar Mellark District 4 tackles him. He keeps his hands on Threads throat choking the life out of him. Thread claws helplessly at Cedar’s hands. The careers talk amongst them selves, “So are we going to go after everyone?”, Mariah asks, “or are we going to look for weapons?” A slight murmur goes through before Herflex saids, “Or we could do both wouldn’t that make more sense,Mariah.” His snobby tone annoys Mariah.
Ramm and Mara Lockhart District 11 stand on the edge of the cornucopia out of sight of the careers. “Mara, we should try to collect food or water from the cornucopia.” Mara shakes her head. “But, Ramm, they are just standing there talking and there might be hidden stuff in one of these rooms. Or whatever...” Ramm grabs his sister by the shoulders, “Mara, I’m going to get some food and run this way. Hide in that room, “ He points to the bedroom three doors away from them, “I will be back with the food, okay?” He gives her a hug and and turns. Mara nods and runs to the room.
Kajama Odair District 4 hears a crash. She turns and sees a boy with ebony hair sprawled on the grass with blood coming from his head. Kajama quickly understands, “He guys. Check out district 11. He tripped over the bench and bust his head open.” They snicker to themselves and Cedar squeeze tighter on Thread’s throat. Kajama walks carefully to the boy on the ground. “He’s out cold,” She tells everyone she steps on his head pushing his face into the dirt. Taking away any chance of air. “Hey, Cedar. Let’s see who chokes them out first!” A few seconds later Thread stops breathing. A little later Ramm stops breathing. Two cannons fire.
Rick Jones District 5 hears the cannon fire twice. He is hiding in what appears to be a bathroom of some sorts with a huge bath tub and some soap. A chamber pot sits in the corner. Rick smirks, “That has to be the lamest Blood Bath ever.”
-Thread Form District 8: choked by Cedar Mellark placing 24th
-Ramm Lockhart District 11: head wound from tripping over bench then suffocated by Mariah Abernathey
Hinder Black District 6, he jumps at the cannons. In the time it took to run up two flights of stairs two people died. Hinder looks around the corridor. Suits of armor line the halls and high ceiling have chandeliers hanging low. Hinder takes a closer look at the Armor.
He can see a thin line going down the chest plate. He taps the armor. It's chest flies open like a door almost hitting Hinder in the face. Sitting inside the armor is a cross bow with 10 arrows. He goes down the hall opening the next four suits of armor inside he finds 5 more arrows, two apples, bottle of water, and a small empty bag. He taps another suit of armor and there is nothing inside of it.
Cypress Beech and Plank Oak District 7. Cypress climbs the fourth flight of stairs, "Plank! Can we stop on this floor instead of going higher?" Plank nods and pulls Cypress in his arms. "Okay, Sweetie. What's our plan of attack?" Cypress pulls out of his arms. She walks carefully forward into the corridor. She finds a hallway full of doors. "Hey, Plank! Check these out!" She opens the closest door to her. Inside is a giant bedroom. A king sized mattress, big wooden table with a bowl of fresh fruit, wooden end tables, and a dresser full of clothing. Cypress grabs a pear from the bowl and flops on the bed. Plank follows her into the room and gets himself some fruit, "Ya, our plan should be to chill here."
Mara Lockhart district 11. She bites her nails nervously. She paces the bedroom Ramm sent her to. A room of complete stone. With stone floors, furniture, and a fire crackling with a cauldron hanging over it. She glances in the pot. Soup, carrots, potatoes and onions bob around. She grabs the knife sitting on the ground. She had taken it off the cutting board and considered following Ramm but she felt it was a bad decision. She hears foot steps. She tightens her grip on the knife. Voices float through under the door.
Careers+Herflex Nome, Jadynette Olive district 10 and Mariah Abernathy district 12. "So that is two down lets go find some food!" The careers walk down the hallway. Passing by Mara's room not smelling the soup. They walk up two flights of stirs and see Hinder walking down the hall with a black bag. His back to them. Mariah silently points at the armor. Their chests wide open. Kajama and Adrian walk quietly trying to sneak up on him. He hears their steps. He whips around and fires his arrow. The crossbow has already snapped two arrows but this one flies straight hitting Kajama in the throat. Hinder runs down the corridor pacing a good lead on the careers they don't bother chasing him instead they watch as Kajama dis and her cannon fires.
Joe Grenwism and Anna Grenwism District 3. They look carefully down the corridor with a big bag full of items. They had raided from armor down the last two hallways. When the cannon fires they drop the bag. A loaf of bread, a bottle of juice, a pair of gloves, and an ax. They repack the bag keeping the ax out. "Come on, Joe." Anna whispers leading Joe to the next suit of armor. Joe taps it carefully. When the suit opens there is no food, or weapons, or items but a net fires out of the armor. Joe dodges it swiftly but it entangles Anna. Electricity surges through the rope. Anna screams in pain. "Anna!” Joe yells he can actulley see the electricity going through it. He grabs the gloves from the bag. Before he can even get them off her screams die out and her heart stops beating. Her cannon fires and Joe collapses crying.
Bessy Towers District 6. She finds a bathroom with running water after hours of searching. She turns the faucet and starts drinking from it. After a few gulps she hears the Panem anthem play. Hard to believe the first day is already over. She hears stone scraping. She looks up. The wall above her is changing. A small window is beginning to open. Directly in the center of it is the nations symbol. The pictures of the dead start flashing. The girl from district 3, then the girl from district 4, boy from district 8 and then the boy from district 11. She sighs. “Four down. 19 more still running around.”
-Kajama Odair District 4 death by Hinder's arrow 22nd
-Anna Grenwism District 3 death by Electric trap 21st
Rick Jones district 5, woke with a start. A loud crash had woken him up. He climbs out of the bathtub he was sleeping in. He had left the bathroom in search of food and had figured out the secrets of the suits of armor. He hadn't been able to find food though. He found two knives, a blanket, 35 arrows, and some medicine. He hid the arrows in a cabinet in case he found a bow. He glances under the door. He see's 8 pairs of feet. Careers. He holds his breath and hears them talking, "That boy from district 6 is going to die. I'm going to kill him with my bare hands!" He hears one of them say. The boy must have killed Kajama. Rick couldn't help but smile. One career down.
Eve Cotton district 8, starts to sing to her self, "In the jungle the mighty jungle twinkle star how i wonder if you know the muffin man?" She even starts to skip. Her stomach starts to growl. She knew what to do. She skipped up to a suit of armor. She tapped the side of it. The door flew open and a spear fired out of it. Embedding itself into the wall. Eve's eyes widen, "Oh, that's very dangerous," She walks over and pulls the spear from the wall, "someone could hurt themselves." She tries to put the spear back in the armor but it won't get back in. She decides to carry the spear with her.
Willow Thorne district 9, she started to cry. The site of the kitchen had overwhelmed her. She had been wandering around the castle all day and she finally found the kitchen. She didn't even know if the castle had a kitchen but she found it. Giant pots of soup, bread lying around, meat cooking. It made her mouth water. She opened a door and found rows of preserved fruits. She grabs a jar and opens it. "Peach!" She mutters. She eats the entire jar in under a minute. The best thing she's ever eaten. Wouldn't be a bad idea to stick around for a while.
Elder Thorne district 9, he gets to the top of the castle. He didn't know how many flights of stairs he had climbed but he knew he was at the top. Elder was tired. He was hungry and thirsty and wanted to find a place to sleep. He walked quickly hoping to find food soon. He practically ran past the suits of armor. He opened door after door but only found empty rooms. He slumps against one of the doors, "I just want some food." He mumbles and falls asleep.
Cathy James district 5, looks behind her before sneaking into an empty room. She layed out all the items she had collected from other rooms or armor. Mixed food to last 9 days, 5 days worth of water, two swords, mace, light armor, sleeping bag, comforter, pillows, juices, a whistle, and a big black bag. She nodded approvingly at her haul, "That will last me at least for a while."
Jeremiah Heddorian district 12, taps another armor. After finding some moldy bread, and one piece of candy Jeremiah was desperate for something good. He got something worse. Three genticly altered bees flew out of the armor. Jeremiah screamed and tried to run but the bees are to quick. He gets stung in his arm lg and back. He can feel their poison enter his body. The bees fly off buzzing loudly. Jeremiah stumbles wildly around the hall. Bumping into multiple suits of armor. Having a variety of items fly out of the armor. He collapses and falls asleep.
Careers, shout, "Here tribute, tribute, tributes. Here tribute, tribute, tributes!" They laugh at their jokes. Gaining whole new confidence when they find out the suits of armor have weapons and food. Each of them has a giant bag filled with items. A fight had broken out between the careers when Cream had wanted to sacrifice most of their food to the sun. "You can do what ever you want with your share but don't sacrifices our shares!" Jadynette had yelled at him. Lack of food, water, and comfortable sleep had made her edgy. The careers spot a blond girl carrying a giant spear. "Hey is that the girl whose crazy?" Herflex asks pointing at Eve. The careers smile to themselves. "I got this," Herflex saids with his smugness overflowing. He pulls a sword from a sheath he had on his back. He jogs up to Eve and mocks her by calling her, 'Crazy' and 'loopy'. This sparks an aner in Eve and she thrusts the spear at him. Stabbing him in the leg. Herflex screams and slashes at Eve cutting her deeply. She cries in pain. Herflex stands on his good leg and plunges the sword into her chest. Her cannon fires.
Hinder Black district 6, looks up while the anthem plays. The wall slowly opens revealing Panem's symbol. The only face that appears is the girl from district 8. Hinder feels his chest tighten. She was so......well, crazy. She was just so fragile. Hinder feels sad that her death had to come.
-Eve Cotton district 8 Herflex had stabbed her 20th
