This is the last chapter, I promise!
Ferro Rete went on to be the mentor for the male District One Tributes starting the year after this, for the 100th Hunger Games (4th Quarter Quell). He led quite a few to victory and retired thirty years later, right before the 128th Hunger Games, at the age of 45, but was never really liked in District One after the events of the 98th Games. He married a girl from a wealthy family named Mia, perhaps in an attempt to gain popular approval, who died a year after their marriage under mysterious circumstances. Ferro was twenty-one when he married. Mia had no children. No charges were brought against him, though popular opinion in District One held that Ferro was somehow involved in Mia's death, if not directly responsible for it.
Anya's little sister Irulan was Reaped two years later, in the 100th Hunger Games (4th Quarter Quell). Her other two sisters, Chani and Alia, were never Reaped and went on to marry and have children. Their infirm aunt, Anirul, died peacefully in her sleep three years after Anya did.
Jack's brother eventually married Julie, one of the orphans that he and Jack lived with.
Tinder's body was brought back to D12 and he was buried with his parents and little brother Sereph. His adoptive parents lived for about fifteen more years, then died within two months of each other.
Kyla's little brother Bentley was taken from his father, who was arrested on charges of rape and assault of a minor, and adopted by the mayor of District Nine.
Romulus' little sister, Astris, was Reaped for the same Games as Irulan (4th QQ).
No one else really had interesting lives...

Interesting Notes Not Included
-Rydel Dewleaf has a birthmark shaped like the old country 'America' on his right ankle. His mother, Striolania Dewleaf, suffers from seizures and bipolar disorder due to a medical accident immediately following the birth of Rydel's twin younger siblings Delilah and Leighton. She (the mother) is in a mental hospital and apparently occasionally escapes and threatens her family.
-Eve Epstein is the daughter of the mayor of District Ten. Her older brother Cole died two Games ago (in the 96th Hunger Games) and both she and her brother were trained for the Games. So she's technically a Career, but she hates them.
-Zana's Token was a marble that was originally part of a set that her grandmother owned (and died with in her hand). Zana kept one and sucks on it when she is afraid/emotional.
A note on the chapter titles:
From Chapter Eight onwards till the end (including this one!), there was a theme. They were all Star Trek t.v. series episode titles! If you got that, good job. If not, I didn't expect you to.
I really had an amazing time writing this story. Thanks to all who submitted and reviewed and supported me! I'm planning on doing another SYOT at some point, I'll contact y'all if you want to submit a Tribute. I'll miss these characters...
My personal favorites were Ferro, Fiore, Anya, Zana, Romulus, Servic, Tinder, and Kyla. It was the most fun to write Ferro's lines but my favorite p.o.v. to do was either Fiore's or Anya's. I didn't like Eve or Avi, they were total Mary Sues. My favorite pairing was Zana/Fiore. I would've totally shipped Ferro/Romulus, Fiore/Kyla, Anya/Jack, Tinder/Saffron... yeah. Don't judge. My favorite alliance was either the Careers or the Zana/Fiore one, it was fun to write for both.
I had fun writing all the death scenes. But I liked Anya's, Jack's, Avi's, and Fiore's. Romulus' last line was kinda epic... 'Ah... well, it's not as though someone like me could've won anyways'. Haha. Kyla's backstory was really interesting, hope I did an okay job with that. Writing all the Jack and Anya arguments was fun, and I liked most of Ferro's scenes, too.
Thank you to everyone, again.
