I know I said I was going to take a break and that these games were going to start during a time when I can actually update but I have just found out that I have a school holiday soon so that's why I've decided to start them now. Also, it might take a while for people to send in characters/tributes since the storyline is quite big.

I appreciate anyone that signs up.

Rules and things to remember

  1. Capitol and District 13 allowed.
  2. I will write in POVS.
  3. I will write outside of the Games as well as in (due to the storyline)
  4. The person that has the support of the district of the victor will be named President.
  5. You can send in 3 tributes and a victor each.
  6. You can send your tributes items.
  7. Remember to send in advice for your tributes to increase their chances of survival.

Durring the Cornucopia, she ran as fast as she could to get the knifes, axe or an emergency bow, and managed to get it. However, a female career tribute from District 2 was headed to get the knifes too, and reached them before Claide did, so Claide decided to use her fangs and bite her hand in order to get the knifes. It was succesful as the knifes fell out of her hand. However, in order to be safe she won't have to kill the District 2 career tribute anymore, she threw a knife in her neck. After that, she grabbed a backpack and ran hidding in the woods. She managed to get into the final four by basically hunting, and killing a few attackers- when the only ones left were the three career tributes and herself. She realised they'd be after her, so she waited untill they went in the woods, and went out of the forest and set it on fire, while she herself ran to the other side of the arena, where she was rather safe. After an hour, she heard a canon bang, then another two and she became the victor.

Destiny Maysall's POV

It had been two days since Father died. I was forced to visit all of the districts, along with my half-brother Leo, to announce Father's death. The Capitol and the rich districts like 1 and 2 were sobbing their hearts out. This was not the case in the poorer districts. They were celebrating his death with dancing, stolen food supplies and breaks from their jobs.

I wasn't offended by it. Father had never treated the poor districts fairly. But he never treated them like dirt on his shoe to an extent. He carried on and on and on. He even went as far as to convince the rich districts that citizens of the poor districts should be avoided like a disease.

The remarks of my father caused a brief conflict within Panem. That's when I intervened. I was only 13 at the time so most people expected me to not understand what was going on and to be a normal Capitol kid, obsessed with fashion and be upbeat about The Hunger Games.

But I'm not like that. I had my father imprisoned, since he was the ringleader of the conflict. It was the only way to silence everyone.

Then for six months, I became the temporary President of Panem. made new laws. Made Panem a safer place. I abolished The Hunger Games. This made the richer districts angry so the only way I could please them was by increasing production of luxurious items. While I made sure some of the products went to The Capitol, I allowed for the citizens to help themselves to the other half of the products. Just to cheer them up.

As of the poor districts, well I was worshipped. My main priority for those districts was to give them more food. In return, I received gifts from the citizens and endless stories of how young children considered me as their role model. Tears filled my eyes.

But happiness wasn't going to last for long. My father broke out of prison and plotted to overthrow me. He did, successfully.

As punishment for imprisoning him, I was forced to watch him descend Panem into chaos again. He re-established The Hunger Games, reduced the amount of food the poor districts had and returned Panem back to it's old ways.

I tried to stop my father again but he threatened to put me into The Hunger Games. So I had to just observe him.

But now, he's dead. And I'm 15. Leo's now 10.

Yesterday, I declared live on television that I would take a shot at presidency again but not temporary. Permanent. That was when Jared Malone, an old friend of my father's and a Peacekeeper, also offered to be President.

Due to this, the Gamemakers agreed that the tributes for this year's Hunger Games would be forced to support either me or Jared. The person who the remaining tribute was supporting would be named President. I didn't agree with this. I would have preferred an election but I decided to follow along with the Gamemakers' plans.

In a few minutes, I had to reveal that to the districts and The Capitol.

But before I would make my way onto the balcony, I gave myself some time to prepare in the library.

I wore a knee length a-line lace dress and a black fascinator, which sat on the side of my head. Even though I wasn't on good terms with Father, I still had to wear black. If I didn't, I would be put under public scrutiny.

I stared at the mirror, which had been hung up on the wall for years on end. Many considered me beautiful and fashionable. Yet, all I saw was just an ordinary teenage girl. My hair was neck-length short and it was the dullest shade of black. My eyes were dull too. I wasn't much to look at.

Leo suddenly entered, looking dapper in his black suit.

"Don't you look handsome?" I ask him, cheerfully. I had to be strong for Leo.

"Not as beautiful as you though." He replies, hugging me. I smile and shed a little tear. It was crazy to say this but being hugged by Leo reminded me of my childhood, when Father loved me and thought of me as his world.

There was a moment of silence after that. I looked at the clock and found out that it was 11:56am. Traditionally, I had to be out onto the balcony for 12:00pm.

"It's time to go, Des." said Leo. He grabbed my hand and we walked out onto the balcony together. We were met by an array of colours, which were actually Capitol citizens. The majority of the crowd cheered and were pleased to see me.

Some, however, were not. I assumed from their heckling that they were Jared's supporters.

"Go and sit down, Leo." I say.

"Okay." Leo toddles over towards the chair that was provided on the balcony every year. It had become a tradition within the Maysall family.

I hold onto the balcony and wait for the Capitol citizens to be quiet. They finally do when the Peacekeepers tell them.

"BE QUIET!" All 20 of them, lined up against the mansion, yelled.

The citizens look up to face me. I was quite intimidated at first but then, I got into the swing of things.

"I am gathered here today to announce this year's Hunger Games. Only this time, it doesn't just determine a victor. It determines who your next President will be."

Everyone started either cheering me on or heckling me again.

"THAT'S ENOUGH!" shouted the Peacekeepers. They began shooting, which caused the crowd to go crazy and berzerk. Some of the citizens collapsed to the floor, dead. I could make out puddles of their blood.

"LISTEN TO ME OR YOU DIE ON THE SPOT!" I shout and everyone now listened to me. The Peacekeepers dropped their guns on the floor, in shock.

"I will continue this speech and you will listen to me!" I continue shouting. Even Leo was in shock. I had resorted to shouting. Father shouted during his announcements of The Hunger Games.

"Now, the tributes of this year's Hunger Games will support either me or Jared Malone. The tributes supporting me will be dressed in blue and the tributes supporting Mr Malone will be dressed in red. This year, the tributes will be ranked not just in training, but in the entire Games themselves. There are also more surprises that I cannot reveal yet. But for now, just enjoy trying to work out what the other surprises will be."

"But when are the reapings?" Someone from the crowd asks.

"Tomorrow. Be ready." I reply before walking back into the building. I was too annoyed to continue my speech. Leo, however, was screaming next to me.


I turned around to find that someone had fired a bullet at me. Leo stood where the bullet was going to hit.

"LEO! GET AWAY!" I shout.

"NO, I'M GOING TO PROTECT YOU DES. LIKE YOU'VE PROTECTED ME." He yells. Despite his sweet offer to protect me, I pushed him aside and allowed for the bullet to hit me. It had formed a hole in my dress and I was starting to bleed heavily.

Through the holes in the balcony, I catched a glimpse of the Capitol citizens going berzerk. The Peacekeepers once again fired shots at the screaming crowd.

"Destiny..." Leo cried. He thinks I'm going to die.

"Leo, I'll be fine..." I say slowly. I held my stomach and watched Leo gather The Capitol's socialites, who had been visiting me. They picked me up and took me.

After that, my eyesight went blurry.

Jared Malone's POV

"A few moments ago, Destiny Maysall, the daughter of the late President Marcus Maysall, was shot today by someone in the Capitol crowd. The bullet was originally intended to hit Destiny. Leo, the President's son, had offered to save Destiny but Destiny pushed Leo aside and was hit by the bullet. Destiny will now be hospitalised until she's recovered."

"So Maysall's in hospital. This gives us an advantage." I say to Gaivan, my friend. President Maysall had been my best friend for many years. Usually, people who were friends with the President would end up famous. Me, however, managed to keep a low profile until now. Yesterday, I offered to be President and now I'm running against Miss Maysall.

"Yes, but we need a plan." Gaivan turns off the TV. A plan immediately strikes my mind once the TV had been turned off.

Since the events earlier was a clearly an assassination attempt, it would be useful to use the assailant in my presidential campaign.

"Here's my plan. We track down the culprit of the attempt and once Destiny recovers, we'll expose her dark side."

"But how?" Gaivan asks.

"It's simple. Provoke Destiny that much that she'll want revenge on whoever tried to kill her. Then make a major scandal out of it. That way, Destiny will lose supporters and everyone will defect to my side. And then I become President." I reply. Gaivan smiles in what I think is agreement.

All is good. But in order to initiate the plan, the 'princess' must awaken from her deep sleep.


Lyssander Ghan, Capitol Male

"Get up! It's reaping day!" shouted one of the psychiatric institution workers, who entered my room. I had beaten my mother to death and so Peacekeepers had put me in this institution full time. I didn't want to be in here. I deserved to be punished for what I did. So I've decided to volunteer at the reaping.

The worker had laid out the institution's basic uniform. They took my own clothes away so that I had no option but to put the uniform on.

As soon as I put the uniform on, I took one last glance at my room. All of my books had been stacked neatly in the bookshelf, my bed had been made and everything was pristine.

I finished looking at my room for the final time and walked out. The worker locked the door behind me and escorted me outside.

I was met by the glistening sun of The Capitol and the bustling of it's citizens. Everyone had to make their way to the Maysall mansion, where the reaping will take place.

Despite the dirty looks and glances I received, I didn't let it bother me. I was a very relaxed person. I ignored everyone and let the worker take me to the mansion.

We walked past many shops, selling different types of goods. Most of the shop signs read 'closed'.

It didn't take long for me to arrive at the mansion's entrance. The Maysall mansion and the psychiatric institution were actually not far away from each other.

No one could actually enter the entrance however, as the stage with the two reaping bowls blocked it. Like always, the two screens that would show the traditional reaping video were at either side of the stage. Barriers where some of the children were standing had been marked out. 12 year olds had to stand at the front, near the stage, where as the 18 year olds had to stand right at the back.

I was taken over to the table, where two Peacekeepers sat. Without no hesitation, I let the Peacekeepers take a small sample of my blood and dab it onto the chart.

"How old are you, kid?" asked one of the Peacekeepers.

"12." I simply reply. The worker waved me goodbye. I waved back before I was shoved into the 12 year old's barrier.

People looked at me in disgust, because I was a resident of the psychiatric institution. I didn't bother looking back at them. I was only here to volunteer and go into the Games, so I would have to go through punishment but I would have freedom from the institution.

Within a few minutes, the district escort, Sophia, arrived. She wore a black strapless gown with a matching fascinator. She was probably mourning the President's death. Destiny Maysall had made fascinators a trend within The Capitol.

"Before I show the reaping video, I want you all to stop speaking for a minute. This minute will be spent remembering the glorious President Maysall." said Sophia. Paying my respects, I stay quiet for a minute. Many were speaking around me but they would probably get told off or punished for it.

A picture of the President were on both screens. I also knew that the President's birth year and death year (268ATSR) were on the screens but I turned away before I could read it.

"Ok, now we shall begin with the video."

I looked at the video. It was President Maysall who was narrating. Different images appeared when President Maysall brought up different topics. There was an image of Katniss Everdeen and mockingjays. There was even images of Destiny and her rebellion.

"Here's the moment of truth."

Sophia walked up to the female reaping bowl first. She rummaged around the bowl until one slip was picked out.

"Camellia Theacea." announced Sophia. A girl, who was around my age, made her way onto the stage. She looked angry and suspicious at the same time. I noticed that she was wearing a camellia flower hairpin.

"Is your name Camellia?" Sophia asked the brown haired, brown eyed girl.

"Yes." Camellia replied. I knew that Camellia was hiding an urge to say something.

"And the boy."

Sophia walked over to the male reaping bowl. This was my opportunity to volunteer. But I waited for Sophia to call out the reaped male.

"Ziggy Zephenson."

Immediately, I shouted "I volunteer" as I made my way onto the stage. Everyone turned to stare at me.

"Here are The Capitol's tributes for the 268th Hunger Games!" Sophia boomed, concluding the reaping.

Trinity Mace, District 1 Female

So today is reaping day and I am so excited! I'm walking to the reaping with the love of my life, Bronze, and this golden party dress looks really nice on me.

I looked at the grandfather clock beside me.
