Reviews for The Victors Project
LeonPianta chapter 6 . 1/5/2014
If the capitol thinks this is the most interesting games yet, they are, so right. Platinum's definitely an interesting type, and it sounds like we have our first actor! This was a great read. I have to say, I'm a little sad he didn't find the 2M, but certainly in 69 more Games we'll have plenty of opportunity.
Thanks for the chapter! -Don

So I just read all five chapters in one sitting.

Oisin, you're my author-crush. I'm also extremely envious of you, but that is besides the point. :D

I just don't know where to start or what to say except, gah! You serve us so much in these chapters. From murderous husband who teaches his brainwashed son with twisted fatherly guidance to privileged artist with a superficial mother to simple-minded urban legend Victor to the Tribute who started volunteering, interviews, and the sexy angle. And we're only four Victors in! A quick review of the chapters:

-It was deeply disturbing reading Ahenobarbus's Games; I wasn't certain I wanted to continue on. His inner monologue and actions made me dislike him, but in reality, he's still "a piece in their Games", if not more so than any other Victor. He was the first. He had to set a standard. He is bound by the Capitol, District Two, and his father. I love his name, btw. It's so wordy (six syllables) and sounds terrifying. It makes you stop reading in order to mentally pronounce it all. Reminds me of Enobaria's name. Perhaps they're related?
-Luxe's chapter was very soap-operay, a welcomed change from the brutality of the first. It was humorous and sad to see Mrs. St. James so wrapped up in this preconceived notion of their image garnering them safety. Was it truly an accident that Luxe's name was in there? While she cares deeply about her son, she hardly knows how to comfort him, wanting to flee the scene when she sees what he now is.
-Orchus's is by far my favorite. He is like those dead celebrities you always hear rumors about still living. Such a great way to tie in Rue and Katniss in the story too. Though I don't understand how District Eleven folk didn't know who he was. The district is huge, but how could you overlook such a large man who helped in the orchards?
-Wheaton was doomed from the start. He brought upon far too much attention. He is probably the first prostituted Victor. No good deed goes unpunished.

As I've said before, your world-building is fantastic. Capitol Games Network, a clever spin on ESPN. Fanboys of the Hunger Games as if it's a true sport. Hunger Games products. The aftermath of The Dark Days. Both the districts and the Capitol acclimating to the new Panem they live in. Brilliant! Now I'm going to end this review because I'm rambling. It ended up being far longer than I imagined. Happy writing!

Why am I just seeing this?! I feel so left in the dark. Damn you Oisin...

I'll leave a real review once I read the first chapter. Until then, I'm so excited about this! I'm always for more world building, and The Hunger Games series is in dire need of it. Which makes it fun for fanfic authors. More creative freedom for us, less work for Suzanne Collins. Everyone wins!

(By the way, I giggled when you referred to your previous works as 'novels'. Not to be disrespectful of course, I've never thought of fanfictions as novels. Some are certainly on the same length and caliber as them.)

This was a really amusing chapter THAT TOOK AN AWFUL, AWFUL TURN? FEELINGS?
Ooh, I hope our next Victor is a girl. About time we had some of that equality and awesomeness.
Thanks for the chapter! -Don
LeonPianta chapter 4 . 12/31/2013
TALK ABOUT FEELINGS, MAN. THIS CHAPTER MADE ME SAD, ESPECIALLY THERE AT THE END. But Orchus seemed such an interesting fellow. Shame this is all he has.
Ah man, only one more chapter! But no worries man, do not rush to write :P Enjoy it! -Don
LeonPianta chapter 3 . 12/31/2013
Oh dear I keEP HaViNG, fEeLiNgs, Oisin why are you doing this to me. Augh I just want to pat Luxe and tell him it will be okay
LeonPianta chapter 2 . 12/31/2013
My only reaction to Ahenobarbus is HoLy sMoKeS
LeonPianta chapter 1 . 12/31/2013
Oh dear, another fic you wrote. Are you trying to give me feelings? (It's working)
This is gonna be a doozy, I can tell. Although I'm excited for the journey. I'm kind of looking forward to the earlier years. I bet since the games were new there wasn't too much hype and maybe there weren't really Careers who knows. But totally I bet the winners are a mystery.
Well, it seems I have a few chapters to get through! -Don

Great chapter- it hit all of the right emotional notes and it's very different from the usual "Victor" stuff.
