Hello everyone, I took a break because I wasn't that motivated to keep writing this, but I'm back and I have thought of a storyline and will finish these somewhat during these 3-5 weeks.
Everything was going on as planned, Snow was executed by Katniss, President Coin announced the symbolic hunger games. The Capitol was cleared, people thought President Coin was going to be a change from Snow's evil.
The year of the symbolic hunger games came around and children of higher ups were reaped including Celestia, Snow's Granddaughter.
Coin didn't waste any time, a day later she put them in training, and after three days she put them in the games, there was no interviews or chariot rides as Ceaser Flickerman and Claudius Temple smith was among the ones executed.
About five died on the during the bloodbath, including the daughter of Seneca Crane, Lilith. Lilith was gutted by a fellow tribute, placing her in twenty-fourth.
By day 6 a feast happened, all eight of the tributes arrived, a second bloodbath happened. Celestia was the first down, she was killed by a young girl named Tanya. Tanya added four to her death count and became the victor.
Five months later, President Coin was found dead and another President was elected, no one really had a choice actually.
Her name was Tanya Enikk, the victor of the Symbolic Hunger Games.
Celestia skin was pale as snow, her hair used to be all colourful but now black as the dark night. You can sense her eagerness of bloodlust, she returned The Hunger Games, making Thirteen Districts and one Capitol offer up two Tributes one boy and girl. These games were bloodier and scarier, just like how Celestia wanted it to be.
Tanya died of old age during the 160th Annual Hunger Games, her Granddaughter Vana was later elected as president continuing the death and horror of the Hunger Games.
Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favour!

The Chariot Rides
Coco Levinson, The Capitol, Avenue of Tributes
"Coco you look so beautiful!" My stylist Susanne said, My prep team didn't really have to prep me for the Chariot Rides, all they had to do is bathe me, do my hair and put on makeup and dress me. I stand on the platform closing my eyes waiting for Priya to tell me to open my eyes.
Susanne was an older lady, she had black hair that was sleeked back and put into a ponytail, she wore a black jumpsuit with the rims decorated with diamonds; she was one of the best Stylist in The Capitol, everyone wanted her. Priya was one my prep team, she wore a bright pink dress and hair was styled into a bun.
I feel Sith tugging on the fabric that I'm wearing, I feel that it's heavy but easy to move around in, Sith starts to apply more make-up to my face, Sith was my other half of the prep team, he had a short orange hair with fierce bright red makeup."okay, dear open up" Susanne says.I gasp to see the girl that is standing before me, my brown hair is let loose, my body is tightly fitted in a long golden gown, my sharp blue eyes are outlined with glittery gold eyeliner, my lips are coated with gloss."Oh.. I don't know how to thank you guys, the " I say smiling "I...I look beautiful" I say quietly.
I see these comments are making my Prep Team smile and giggle, "Show the Capitol their female Tribute" Susanne says placing her hand onto my shoulder, Susanne was one of my favourites during all of this chaos, my mentors Cleo and Apollo both too cheery about me fighting to the death. I remember when Apollo won his game, probably a decade ago; Apollo was a charming young man, won all of the sponsors and when it was his final kill, he cheered and laughed holding the bloody knife.
On the other hand, Cleo was everyone's sweetheart; her blonde curls are now a light pink, she usually has it all pinned up. She won by seducing the Career's boys to turn against each other and killed the girls while they slept. After she won the game she started to drink but stopped as soon she had a child: Vivian, is around my age probably even older.
Susanne slowly guides me to the Training Centre.I notice all the other tributes are already out there, Romulus is wearing a golden suit with glitter on it. Romulus is standing with our teammates; The Careers. The District One pair looks lethal, The girl from One: Luxia is sexy, she's wearing a bejewelled corset with a matching black skirt, her hair is in a messy braid. Her District Partner Gleam, he is so far the strongest and biggest Tribute I've seen so far, his blonde hair is spiked and is wearing a bejewelled jumpsuit with the District One seal on the back.
I walk up to them, holding the long fabric at the end of my dress, "guys this is Coco" Romulus introduces me, I smile at them. The District Two pair smile but I knew that the girl wanted to rip my throat out.Terra stood arms crossed, her mousy brown hair reached her shoulders, she is wearing a black crop top with a black and gold striped skirt. Her Partner is Hercules, he is wearing a peacekeeper costume but its black and gold stripped as well.Next was the girl from District Four, her partner decided not to join the Careers.Delta is wearing a long sea blue dress, her brown hair now has blonde streaks running through it, she is finished with a shell tiara.
"What happened to your partner, Delta?" I ask "Arno? I don't know... told me that he didn't want to a part of a murder club" Delta replied, I hear a scoff coming for Romulus.
"Tributes Mount Up" The robotic voice spoke, I look up to Romulus and then back to the others "I guess we need to go," Luxia said "see you guys at training" She added.I walked to our chariot with Romulus, "how do you like this year's Career Pack?" I ask "good," he says. Romulus helps me up the Chariot, "I don't think the girl from Two likes me," I say "I don't think she likes anyone" Romulus laughs, I weakly smile. I see the big doors start to open up, "Good luck" I say.
Arno Hyberts, District 4, Avenue of Tributes
I latch onto my trident I feel my palms getting sweaty, I notice Delta is looking at me "don't be nervous Arno, they're gonna love us" Delta tells me, the rest of her sentence is cut off from the roaring crowd of the Capitol.
I watch the District Three pair who are shining Green, Blue, Red and Yellow start rolling. It's not long till a dark sea blue horses start to march forward, my Mentor: Aruna told me to wave and smile at the crowd, easy way to get sponsors.
I start to wave and smile at the crowd, I notice District Five is so far the favourite, Maxeen dress is just plain black but the white dots are eye catching but so is her evil glare, It's not long till District Six takes over, siblings and the girl is only twelve years old.
Sterling, the young girl is wearing a simple white dress, stating her innocence, her brother is wearing a simple white jumpsuit with a hat, possibly representing a mechanic. I turn to see Delta, she has a big white cheery smile, she seems to be holding a rose, high in the sky.
That gives me an idea, I lift my hand with the trident and scream District Four, that makes the crowd go wild. They still continued for District Seven, The boy and girl both wearing plants, the girl is wearing a dress entirely made of plants, flowers decorate her hair.
"Good idea" I hear Delta whisper to me "thanks" I look at her smiling. Delta was my friend even although he's going with The Careers and I'm not, we're still close. We've been friends at District Four her family lives on the same street and I trained with her older brother and sister. Delta's sister only won six or seven years ago, her name escapes my tongue.
District Eight is always the Capitol's favourite even Hundred years ago during the Second Rebellion. This year the boy and girl are wearing a silk robe with different colours and patterns, I'm guessing silk is all the craze in The Capitol and what's so ironic is that the male tribute is named Silk.
District Nine, Ten and Eleven all pass getting moderate cheering, District Twelve is next the Medicine/Mining District, the girl is wearing a black lace dress that covers her neck and the boy in a black lace unitard.
Next was District Thirteen the crowd stops all of a sudden, why wouldn't they, they're were horrible or what Lysander Fairbanks would say.
They were wearing a dirty green jumpsuit with District Thirteen on the back, no makeup, no glam.
I see Capitol and District One stop, soon followed by Two, Three and us. Our Chariot is placed next to Three and Five, I look over to Six, Sterling is holding onto her brother's hand like someone is going to grab him and take him away.
President Vana Enikk walks onto the stage, her skin is pale as snow, her hair is endless void of black, so is her eyes. When you look at her you get chills, she talks about how lucky to be picked and be in the 170th Annual Hunger Games and like she has been doing for so many years saying "May the odds be ever in your favour."
Our chariot is taken back to the Tribute Centre, Anure and Bellix are standing there "you guys were great!" Anure my mentor says "yeah, great touch with that Trident of ours Arno" Bellix says "why don't we go back to our room and talk about our tributes" Teal our Escort says.
Nina Valie, District 13, Training Centre
I stand next to Hugo, my partner. I'm thankful to my stylist King, we weren't dressed up as something dumb; military. Our chariot spoke the strongest showing that we don't want to be here, that the spirit of The Mockingjay is still here.
Cosmia Zinx the head trainer start to walk up to the Tributes, she then yells for everyone to come to her so she could tell everyone the rules, her dark green hair is let loose and wild, she is tall and athletic. She talks about the games, how that most of us will die during the first few hours and that we need to learn survival, but that doesn't matter when she dismisses us most of the tributes go to the deadliest weapons.
I turn to Hugo "what do you want to do?" I ask, even tho Hugo is younger than me, his smart and he knows what his doing; we were talking to the District Twelve pair, Ember and Phoenix both look like they haven't had a meal in a year, Hugo brought up an idea of an alliance named The Anti-Careers, It's been done before: During the 156th Annual Hunger Games, that wasn't really successful the anti-career were all killed during a building collapsing. We were all down for it, we wanted to get some others in on it before they go off to the Careers. So far it looks like the girl from District Ten is recruited, her brown pixie cut hair is spiked and face is decorated with freckles, she was strong; growing up on the farm and basically brought up on it.
"Lathen, the boy from my district he would like to join," Beka says, "that's great," Ember says smiling "the more the merrier" she adds.
Beka and Lathen both from Ten were aboard. "So, who's going to be the leader?" I say, everyone looks up and looks at me "let's have a vote, I nominate Ember and Phoenix" Hugo says, "no I'm not going to be the leader but I do vote for Phoenix" Ember says, "same" Beka and I say, Lathen wanted to be the leader but Phoenix won the vote.After the voting Phoenix told us to train on a skill we didn't know; that was fire starting.
The girl from 7 was also at that station "I see there're two groups forming" Petal says, Petal hair is tied back into a ponytail, her dark green eyes are lighted by the fire, "what?" I say "The Careers and your alliance," she says, she was right tho, once the Capitol gets ahold of this information they're going to use it as a way to get more views 'Which side will win? The Careers and The Anti-Careers' automatically everyone will be cheering on the Careers, sending sponsors to the District 1 girl, cheering on when the Anti-Careers is picked off, one by one.
In the corner of my eye, Baxter is listening deeply into Petal's and I conversation. "Why do you want to join?" I ask, "no are you joking that's a great way to kill myself," Petal says, "good luck tho," Petal says before blowing out the fire and walking away.
Petal seems to be doing the sexy angle, the usual one for The Career girls, Luxia is standing way too close to Romulus, probably trying to be his favourite, the District Two girl is beheading dozen of targets, the boy from 1 is cheering her on, Coco and Hercules are talking to Zea, another strong Tribute.
Zea's honey blonde hair is tucked behind her ears, her creamy skin and her dark red lips, of course, The Careers would want her as a teammate, they did lose one: Arno the boy from 4, that didn't really affect his game he's still the Capitol's favourite, whoever kills him is going to be The Capitol's worst player ever. His charming smile and golden blonde hair, District four tributes are always the best looking.
Gleam Howard, District 1, Training Centre
I watch the dummy's falls onto the floor with a thud, Terra was very impressive with her sword and knife skills, we both share the hatred of Romulus, I turn to over to the other careers. Romulus showing off his muscles to Luxia, Coco and Hercules trying to recruit more people, we did need more people on our side.
Apparently, people want to make another strong alliance, they call themselves the Anti-Careers, they are never successful in their mission: defeating the Careers.
The lunch bell goes off, I follow Terra into a room full of tables, at the back of the room is where the food. The food ranged from all Thirteen Districts and The Capitol. One table had a reserved sign, it was for the careers.
I take a seat next to Luxia, I wasn't really in the mood to eat, the others, they were already up to their seconds, you would think us The Careers would already have enough food. "Romulus, I'll like to address The Anti-Careers" Terra says, "what about them?" Romulus says with food in his mouth, "don't you think they'll be a threat?" Delta chimes in "no, they're weak have you seen them" Romulus laughs.
I felt my blood boil, Luxia knew so. Why was he the leader! I would be making up plans to sabotage and get rid of The Anti-Careers so one of us could have a chance of surviving and winning.
"It's ok Gleam, we'll think of a plan" Luxia says whispering into my ear. "Also what do you guys think about Arno and Angora," Luxia says smiling, "Arno and Angora are not going to be a threat to us, we should just leave them alone," Hercules says, "I agree," I say.
I look over to Zea, who's eating her food quietly, "anyways besides all of that, welcome Zea" I say, Zea looks up at me and smiles "thank you for inviting me to The Careers"
It wasn't soon till the Lunch bell goes off and everyone hurries off for another hour of training, I decide to go to the axe station where the boy from 7 was, Root. Root had fiery red hair he seemed strong for his age; only being Fourteen.
"Hey, " I say, Root looked at me "oh, hi" Root says nervously "it's alright I'm not like Romulus, I thought your skills were, cool." I say, Root laughed slightly "that's why we want yo to join the Careers," I say, "yeah, sure," Root says smiling.
I knew inviting Root to the alliance was going to make Romulus angry.
Phoenix Flint, District 12, Training Centre
It was early in the morning when Xan was slamming on my door, another day of training. I hated this whole thing, fighting to the death. The Districts learnt our lesson! Are they just going to keep it going? Well, it already has been 170 years.
I slip out of my bed and into the shower, after the shower, I got in my training clothes; a black jumpsuit with red, like all the other districts. Ember was already sitting in the dining room, her muddy brown hair is let down, she's just staring at the distance.
"Missing home?" I say walking in, making her jump "yeah, wouldn't trade it for here, even though everyone is starving to death, this place doesn't seem like home." Ember says moving her gaze to the window, "we should go, we're late." I say. I tap the button and then we're shooting down towards the training centre.
Terra Marbet, District 2, Training Centre
"And why aren't you going, missus?" Fawn says rolling her eyes "because it's useless! All I'm doing is flaunting my skill to make the others scared of me" I raise my voice, Fawn looks at me with wide eyes "don't you dare raise your voice! I am your mentor, you will respect me and follow what I say" Fawn says her nostrils blaring.
Fawn was around early 30's, annoying, know it all, overall a bitch. I didn't like her, so didn't Hercules even our escort had a bad taste of her. Fawn hair is in her typical bun, with a pin going through it. I roll my eyes, "whatever you say bossy boots" I say annoyingly.
Fawn stands up fast, she pushes my against the wall "listen here! You may not bloody like me, but I'm your only hope to survive in that arena, and if you want to be a disgrace to our home and then be it because I will tell them everything you been doing. Smoking, drinking and what else?" Fawn's is bright red, steam is almost coming out of her ears.
I push Fawn off me, I can tell Fawn lost her footing. I storm out of my room, pushing Zainin out of my way and going straight to the elevator. I didn't bother fixing my look. I was fighting back tears, I'm going to be a disgrace to District Two, Fawn is going to ruin my family's name.
I walk out the elevator and walk straight to the hand-to-hand combat station. The District 13 girl is there already, she looks at me with a smirk "Two! Versus me?" She says I smile back "my pleasure" I retort back.
"Okay here the rules, once the person says stop you stop, don't kill each other, also no weapons."Got it" Me and the girl says.
I throw the first punch, she falls back but she comes back quickly with another punch, after a few hits, the anger with Fawn fires up again, the fury burns deep inside, I throw stronger punches, I then grab her by the hair and start to knee her in the face before she starts to scream stop.
I throw her onto the ground. I see her nose is starting to bleed, I turn around to see I have a crowd of shocked kids, but then there are my team members who are clapping and laughing.
Maxeen Howitt, District 5, Training Centre
I watch on as Terra beats up Nina in a station, I stand there along with the rest of my competitors in amaze. Well, I really wasn't I just didn't want to seem like a bore to the others. Today was the last day of learning new tricks and then trying to impress the game-makers.
I'm starting to get really good at with my knife skills and my hunting skills.
Petal, Oxford and Tech had approached me to make an alliance, I agreed because its best to survive the majority of the game with a group. You need the mindset of back stabbing and I have that mindset, none of these people is my family or my friends, there are my predators.
The bell rings, we all are sent into a small room with Twenty-Eight Chairs. Coco sits at the front and then the boy from Thirteen is last.
I sit next to Wattson, we really haven't talked. Maybe small chit-chat at the dinner table, but not that much of in depth. I don't want to, it will the last thing to get emotionally attached to someone in this place, you will end up doing something like risking your life.
I laugh at that, so many dumb girls 'fall in love' and end up killing the selves but then moments later their boyfriends are killed by the careers.
One, Two, Three, Four.
"Maxeen Howitt report immediately to Training," The Robotic voice says.
I look over to Wattson to give a weak smile, "good luck" Wattson says, I stand up nodding.
Walking down that hallway was dreadful, but what was more dreadful was the door sliding open and to see the Game-Makers all sitting there, their eyes piercing my soul causing me to tremble.
I walk over to the tree climbing station,I was alright this. I missed a few ropes causing me to fall but I ended finishing it.
I walk over to the knife throwing station. This is the one I have to go good at, they don't care if I can climb trees, they want to know if I can kill. I hold a knife in my hand, and send it towards my target, it didn't even hit close to the bullseye. I tried again but this time, it falls to the ground, the metal clings against the floor.
The Game-Makers chuckle. No this can't be. I grab another knife and send it straight at the bullseye. I don't look back at the Game-Makers or wait to be dismissed.
Sterling Tripp, District 6, Tribute House
"Guys it's starting!" Wonda says, eating popcorn. I walk slowly towards the coach, my stomach feels sick, I have a pounding headache, I just want to see what score I got so I can go to sleep and study for the Interviews.
Lysander Fairbanks comes up with a cheerful smile, piece of papers in her hands, containing my score.
"Lets begin with The Capitol!"
"Coco with a score of 9.... Romulus with a score of 11."
Luxia's face shone on the screen, long blonde hair cascading in blonde curls, her bright toothy smile, she was the definition of natural beauty, well to me. People say Coco is the most beautiful girl around, but shes all fake, plastic. Luxia ended up scoring a 10, so with her partner Gleam.
District 2 was a couple I feared, Terra fought that girl from 13 in a heartbeat, and finished it quickly. Her black hair is usually in a bun, the loose strays of her go against her tanned skin, Hercules was the 2nd biggest boy, His height and amount of muscle astonishes me, I'm pretty sure Hercules and Romulus are made out of pure muscle.
I don't pay attention to District 3, I liked to listen to the Careers, and picturing them jumping and down on their score they got.
I liked District 4, Arno not teaming up with The Career's amazed me, but The Capitol loved it, someone from a Power-House District became a major underdog, His tanned skin made his bright blue eyes pop, his bleached blonde had a messy look, looks like he didn't bother to fix his bed hair. On the other hand, Delta was the complete sweetheart of the Capitol. She had a pure innocent look, her brown hair had blonde highlights, her skin was abit lighter then Arno, maybe she didn't spend as much time in the water. Both were tall and strong.
Delta's score showed up on the screen, an 11. I appluad her. Next was Arno, everyone in the Capitol wanted to know what the most wanted winner had scored, and without a doubt, a 12.
I completely skipped across District 5 scores.
Here's the dreadful moment of them announcing my score, an embarrassment?
"Sterling with a score of 7, and Metro with a score of 9."
I get up in a jump and turn to Metro and hug him "congrats guys!" Wonda says patting my back with a bright smile.
The Training Score and Odds
Angora Weaver, District 8, Tribute Centre
I stare at myself in the mirror, completely naked, makes me shiver. Roxie comes walking into the room with a big bright smile "Angie, you will look lovely in this outfit" Roxie smiles, Roxie gave me the nickname Angie, she said she liked Angie better but to me, I think she couldn't pronounce my name. "Close your eyes dear" Roxie orders me.
I obey her and close my eyes. I hear the door open, high heels clicking on the marble floor, It was probably Bell, one of my prep team here to help Roxie.
"Okay, open up now," Roxie says, I see in front me.
