I decided to do a SYOT, so you guys submit the tributes to me using my tribute form on the next page and they will be used in the games. It will not be first come first served and there will be a sponsoring system as well.
Enjoy the announcement!
The third quarter quell – Fairytales
All around the nation of Panem people were glued to their screens, capitol and district people alike, all awaiting the announcement of the 3rd quarter quell. Katniss Everdeen and her fiancée Peeta Mellark sat patiently, wondering what surprise twist awaited the tributes they would mentor.
Suddenly the screens burst into life. President Snow began to speak, reminding the districts of the dark days, from which the hunger games evolved. When the games were first created, it was dictated that every twenty-five years, on the anniversary of the rebellion, the games would be changed slightly. A glorified version of the games to make fresh the memory and suffering of the dark days. A quarter quell.
President snow took in a breath and began to speak
"On the twenty-fifth anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that their children were dying because of their choice to initiate violence, every district was made to hold an election and vote upon the tributes who would represent them"
He paused, letting the audience process his words before moving on
"On the fiftieth anniversary, as a reminder that two rebels died for each Capitol citizen, every district was required to send in twice as many tributes"
Snow looked out among the sea of colours and saw the excitement building up as they all prepared for the big announcement.
"And now we honour our third Quarter Quell" Snow said as the little girl hurried up to him with the plain wooden box. Snow lifted the lid to reveal rows of neatly placed envelopes, yellow with old age. President Snow carefully picked out the envelope that was clearly marked with 75, pausing to blow the dust off it. He gently peeled open the ancient envelope, squinting at the tiny writing before clearing his throat and reading out the little card.
"On the seventy Fifth anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that age is irrelevant when it comes to the rebellion and that no one is immune, every child aged 4 to 19 will be eligible for reaping"
All around the magnificent country of Panem gasps were heard. In the districts there were gasps of horror and sorrow, mothers clung to their young and those who thought they had faced their last reaping where confronted with the chance of going into the games. In the Capitol there were gasps of joy and excitement, sure they were children, but they were district children so it really didn't matter at all. Everyone in the capitol chatted happily as they were sure these games were going to be the best yet.
President Snow just smiled, the horrifying scent of blood and roses emitting from him and up into the sky of Panem.
He was going to enjoy these games.
The Tribute form is on the next page, only submit via PM or else they will be ignored.
