A/N: a couple quick side notes, one, Katniss and Peeta never sparked a rebellion. President snow died soon after at 91, of old age. But his son, President Snow II was put at the head of the capitol. Also, Rue's oldest sister, Lynne, has become a mentor, winning the 85th hunger games, which she volunteered for at 18 to avenge Rue's distasteful end. Otherwise however, everything is generally the same, and Peeta and Katniss have been married happily for 13 years, and have four children, 3 boys and 1 girl, Marco- 12, Jonah-7, Aaryn- 5 and Primess- 13. You may use them in the hunger games as tributes. And Katniss and Peeta are mentors for district 12, but one can be used in another, as a new rule has been made that districts without mentors will get mentors from other districts.
Now for the prologue.
It feels like I've spent an obscene amount of time in here with all these stylists. But I need to look good for this national broadcast. It's only my second year in office, after my father's unexpected heart attack. I still get the jitters with these televised things. I wasn't meant to be the next president, the role was meant for my older sister, Danielle, but she went off a 'found' herself, and left this nutcase job to me. I hate speaking in public, not to mention the stage fright that attacks me once the camera is turned my way. This job is horrible, running Panem takes something your born with- confidence! I don't have that gene. For Christ's sake, i would rather crawl in a hole than speak to the nation on live television. I don't want to! Never was much to talk anyways! I had planned to have a laid back adult life, with my husband Prezton, and get to enjoy motherhood. Though, the stylists surrounding me with the cameras filming my arrival tell otherwise. Like it or not, I have become the political figure, President White. And now, my presence for the announcement of the 4th quarter quell has been requested. I waltz up to the podium, not enjoying the piercing spotlights. And, I begin.
" The hunger games are an annual affair, but this year is different. When the original game makers created the hunger games, they wanted to find a way for the districts to honor an anniversary of sorts from the years after the rebellion. So, they made thousands of these cards, detailing the special affairs of the anniversary games. Every 25 years we honor their wishes by pulling out the next card. Each time it dictates a special theme and twist for the year. On the 25th anniversary of the hunger games, to remind the rebels of how it had been their choice to rise from their ashes, each district had to vote on the tributes for that year, the ever handsome Spark Serene, aged 18 from district one! He stayed with the traditional career pack then turned suddenly when only 1 was left, then, using brute force, he attacked the not too lucky little Maris Shawl, aged 13 from district 8, who had not made a single kill. he had ran for cover in the very beginning and waited out the other tributes in his tall tree, but Spark found him easily once he began to look. Then with the 50th anniversary, to remind the rebels of how many lives they had wasted in their futile attempts, twice as many tributes were reaped. Our victor from that year was the lovely Haymitch Abernathy, who discovered the force field set up by the capitol and used it to his advantage, luring the remaining tribute, ready to kill him, over to it. Poor Mayislee Donner threw her axe into the force field unknowingly and it shot right back at her, beheading her. both were aged 16 and from district 12, but Haymitch was the brains rather than the brawn that made it out of the arena and into his quiet home in victor's village. On the 75th anniversary, as a reminder of how nice the capital can be, but also to remind the rebels that the strongest of us had been the ones to rebel, the tributes were reaped from the preexisting pool of victors, however only one tribute was reaped. A very brutal games, Haymitch Abernathy was the luckiest amongst the victors, pulling one over on Brutus Granger district two. At 41, Haymitch Abernathy, the second quarter quell victor, and first of three lone victors in district 12, was the resounded victor. Now, on the 100th anniversary of the end to the uprising and beginning of our grand hunger games, to remind the rebels that they turned brother against brother, and father against son, the reaping bowl shall only have the names of those with siblings. And the tributes reaped will enter the arena with their next oldest or next youngest sibling with them, regardless of whether or not the sibling is in the age range, for the rebels did not pick and choose each life lost. if both siblings make it to the end, they may both be crowned victors. That is all, thank you."
I carefully step off stage, greeted by water and a soft chair. Now, I can relax, even if it isn't for long.
A/N: this will be a SYOT, if you want to submit, just go visit my profile, which will have the application, submit via PM please. For each of the 24 spots, there needs to be the submission of the sibling along with the reaped. Please make them INTERESTING! And hope you enjoy! Also, each submitting author will receive 250 points to use to sponsor their tributes! And sponsoring of other tributes will be looked upon as a good chance of their tribute going far! I will post a list of possible items to send to tributes during the game, please be patient with the wait on new chapters, I am only human. HAPPY HUNGER GAMES, AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!
