Ooh I think you wrote this really well, despite it being from two very different and equally difficult characters!
Memphis is creepy, but understandably so, within reason. Obviously, the bit about him killing his father isn't nice, but he does justify his reasons for summery thoughts, kind of... Although, thinking about it, it is weird that he and Holly had Colette when they were only fourteen/fifteen- but she's only three years old! How could you let a baby go into the Games?
I actually think that Gwen may be the more peculiar of the two siblings. Of course, it's because of Memphis' influence, but still! She's only six! Yet, she's willing to do whatever necessary to win these Games. And she is as obsessed as her brother is with fire. And she can use a pocket knife well, I assume. Aaaaand she's going to teach a three year old to use one! What if Colette stabs herself, or something!
But it was really really very good!

Sorry it's taken me so long to read, but I've had exams and the like.
But it was worth the wait! I really liked the Smithin family. Generally, they were all cheery and friendly towards each other. Obviously, though, there's the exception.
I did really like how they all seemed to have a purpose to their family, however. Like, Daisy was there to keep them happy and laughing on reaping day, whilst Harrey seemed to be there to make it normal. And it seems as if Ninah will be there, as the only sane one in her family, during the Games.
To be fair, I think Ninah is slightly mad, in the sanest possible way. Whilst she is the only one thinking logically, she's not even considering her family leaving the Arena with her. And she's only thirteen! But I do think that makes her more interesting.
Harrey and Clara's relationship was really cute, though. It's just extremely upsetting that both their families discussed their marriage, but they hadn't looked into it.
It's sad how the Games are breaking people up!
I should read the next chapter soon, I hope!

Whoot whoot! Go Johanna!
I liked this chapter.
I like Lyana's personality. She seems smart and I like how you described how she was attractive. I also thought it was really interesting how you wrote about all of the heads turning in unison when the Sectore family was called onstage. Very well written and detail-packed. Nice job Kat! :)
For me, I try to break up my paragraphs too and keep my chapters on the shorter side. But whatever works for you is good with me!
Only two more chapters to catch up on.. I'll do them soon-ish. Probably tomorrow if that's okay.
Also, I started a new SYOT called 'So Cold.' I'd love it if you'd join, but only if you want to!

KAT! I'm sorry I've been gone so long! I'm back now and I'll go back and try to review everything later! :) I'm so excited!
Gwen is so adorable, I love her! She seems really smart and I think she could actually make it far, despite being six..
And I gotta love him (but only if he really loves Gwen).
I think/hope Memphis was trying to comfort her, but really I don't know!

BABY NO NOT A BABY! YOU CANT PUT A THREE YEAR OLD INTO THAT GAMES THAT IS TOO CRUEL OMG DIE CAPITOL DIE!
Memphis: he seems to be tricking and caring for Gwen. I don't really know what I think of him. A little crazy?!
Gwen: very clever for a six year old! Anyway, she really reminds me of my own sister (weird that?)! Anyway she seems so cute!
Holly: she seems nice. Not overly strong willed or anything but she seems like a genuinely nice person!
Amazing chapter anyway, Kat. I can't wait to read more :)

I really liked the characters. They were all really interesting and I want to read more about. I think Memphis cares about Gwen, but I think he has manipulated her as well.
| Flyere chapter 11 . 3/18/2014
Memphis seems to be both manipulating and caring for his little sister. I think he sees value in her-enough to care about having her planted firmly on "his side" so to speak. I don't think he was saying it to try and make her feel better, I think he was saying it to make sure she didn't have a complete nervous breakdown in the arena.
Gwen seems like quite the six year old. She definitely has a higher mental capacity than the average child, and its a bit frightening to see her understanding things like the capitol and the hunger games before being able to read. However I have no doubt that such things have been pressed upon her by her seemingly psychotic older brother whom she clearly idolizes.
Holly seemed to have good intentions, but was powerless to do anything. She doesn't seem to stand up for herself much. Memphis, on the other hand, doesn't seem like the kind of person who would be easy to stand up for.
I FEEL BAD FOR THE BABY! This tugged at my heartstrings-the idea of a little baby being put forth in to the hunger games. I think this also helps bring out Memphis's seemingly psychotic character.
Overall, excellent chapter! I look forwards to seeing more and seeing the pre-games side of things after the reaping!

My goodness I am behind. This system never sent me an alert when it was updated and I haven't been reviewing! I'll re-sub and get back on track. As for this and every other chapter:AMAZING Kat! I can't wait for more!

It's all I can say
You just portrayed the family perfectly. How can you write this well. You got everyone's personalities into the chapter. All of them. It was so sad about Harrey and Clara though. I really loved that part. They seem so perfect together. I love the way Harrey felt the need to comfort everyone. I see why you wanted to write Ninah's POV. She was my little extra creation, who I currently love. She really added a twist to the happy family, a darker side. Her POV must have been the best part of the chapter. It all seemed so sad to everyone else by Ninah was pretty content. Wow. Just. Okay you made my creation of this family be perfect. You just pirated them amazingly well. All of them (and the Harvesters)
It was just amazing

Loved family seems cool.
| Bondgirl88 chapter 10 . 2/20/2014
I think this family is my favourite so far. I really like that it doesn't have all the drama. everybody is close to each other,even Ninah:)2 POVs is actually a good idea,thank you for a great chapter
| A-Bookworm-Named-Steph chapter 10 . 2/19/2014
It wasn't too long. I love high school AUs. But you have to commit, no half AU and half cannon. I would love to see your take on it. These are getting better and better, I feel so sorry for everyone. Why? It's so unfair... I don't know who I want to win, other than Shade's family;). The updates aren't bad, I understand. Highschool is a lot of work isn't it. Happy late Valentines day!
| Gnomewithoutahat chapter 10 . 2/19/2014
Really like this chapter. And the family. I really hope Harrey makes it through to get back to Clare. Ninah is probably going to have a dofferent strategy for the games to the rest of her family. But that's up to you obviously. Thats just what i think will happen. But yeah. Long review for a long chapter. I await the next
| RandomAngel123 chapter 10 . 2/19/2014
I like Ninah's character she's really interesting. I actually think the Smithin family is my favourite so far
