2 Works in 67th Hunger Games
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” - Albert Einstein
As murmurs of rebellion travel Panem, an unfortunate 'coincidence' means that every tribute chosen in the Reaping of the 67th Hunger Games just 'happens' to be twelve years old.
Claudius, the male Career volunteer from District Two, finds the moment he spent his entire life training for tainted as he's now forced into the role of the Capitol's executioner. Lyme, his mentor, refuses to let her tribute go down as the villain.
Contains massive headcanon about the District Two Career training academy, Career culture, and D2's mentor system. Also Lyme, because apparently no one ever writes about Lyme, and that's a darn shame.

Another fill for the Girl on Fire Ficathon: haymitch/johanna, the heart beats in its cage.
Edit 3/25/13: Added an "epilogue" prompt fill for those who wanted to know how this story ended. :)
