    Summary

    And though you’re dead and gone believe me
    Your memory will carry on
    We’ll carry on

    ---------------------------------------------

    "I get attached, I know. And then it rips my heart out and Enobaria accuses me of doing it on purpose so I can steal you away for a month while you stop me from getting on a train and burning things down. I know. But I can't stop."

    The good thing about being a Career mentor is you get to choose your tribute; the downside to being a Career mentor is you get to choose your tribute. The girl Lyme picks for the 73rd is familiar to her, too, but not because she's met her before. Not exactly.

    Companion to District Two, Male

    Summary

    "Do all tributes get to do this?" asks Feather. "Once you accept the bid? Is this normal?"

     

    Max and Chrysalis exchange a look, and both draw a measured breath before Max answers. "No," he says. "The circumstances are - out of the ordinary."

     

    In a time of unrest, two trainees from District One are allowed to visit District Two's Center, in order to strengthen the interdistrict alliance.

    Why do we sacrifice the beautiful ones?
    How do you break a heart of gold?
    Why do we sacrifice our beautiful souls?
    Heroes of tales unsung, untold

    ------------------------------------

    Devon turns back to the boy and says, "What's your name, so I can remember when you win?"

    The boy's face goes proud, chin up and eyes set. "It's Felix. Felix Hunter."

    "That's a good name," Devon says with a nod. "Okay, Felix Hunter, I'll remember you."

    Ten years after a routine PR appearance at an elementary school, District Two mentor Devon is choosing this year's tribute from the top candidates when a familiar face crosses his desk.

    Summary

    "No," Nero says again, not looking up from the gauze he's affixing around her wrist.

    "No what?" Lyme demands. "I didn't do anything!"

    "No whatever you're thinking, little girl, because I know your faces and that's not a good one." Nero raises an eyebrow. "Prove me wrong."

    Before rebel and renegade, between victor and mentor, Lyme was in recovery: angry, bitter, confused and lost, a trained killer without a purpose. Nero, her mentor, has his work cut out for him -- especially since not all ghosts come from the Arena.

    Summary

    "It's my leg that's broken, not my hands," Brutus grumbles, snatching the beer away and downing half of it in one go.

    "I just want to make sure you're okay," Lyme says, patting his other knee. "Plus I owe you for that time I got the flu and you kept asking if it was possible to get pregnant from pretty boys letting me fuck them."

    Brutus falls down a mountain and hauls himself back on a broken leg, because A Man Does Not Ask For Help. Lyme's gonna make him wish he just picked up the damn phone.

    Summary

    Lyme turns around and shades her eyes with her hand. "Let's go, caveman," she calls. "Not getting any younger here."

    Brutus opens his mouth, shuts it, then slaps a hand down over his face and shoves the door closed with his foot. "This is gonna be a great night," he mutters to himself. "Bet she orders the fucking lobster."

    Brutus and new-victor Lyme go on a date at the behest of their mentors. It really, really does not go well, but maybe that's okay.

    Summary

    Six weeks after Brutus carries Petra from the car to her new home in the Victors' Village, she asks him to kill her.

    A mentor should always know what to do. But twenty years of experience don't mean anything when Brutus' girl comes home after the all-maces year with a shattered pelvis and empty eyes.

    A look at what happens when District Two's toughest mentor learns his newest Victor might never walk again.

    Summary

    Once he held a baby for a young girl with skinny knees and a dress too small for her while she slipped into a store; stood there for an hour before the shopkeeper poked his head out and hollered that she'd long run out the back door. Darius carried the baby -- tiny and big-eyed and silent -- to the group home, handed it over to the world-weary woman in charge. He looked down into the face of a little girl with a handprint on her cheek, bright and stark because it didn't matter who saw, no one would care.

    Nobody cares about District 12. No Peacekeeper asks to be stationed there. Not until Darius.

    Written for the Girl on Fire Ficathon, prompt: Darius, no good deed ever goes unpunished

    Summary

    So you can fall right to pieces on the floor tonight
    You can break down if you need to cry
    But I won’t ever change my mind
    ---------------------------------------------
    Brutus forces his tongue between his lips. "I won?"

    Odin smiles. Odin never smiled at him before. Always solemn, serious. Approving but distant. But now he smiles, the lines of his face rearranging as though a mountainside decided to get up and walk away. "You won, my boy."
    ---------------------------------------------
    A mentor's job doesn't end when they pull their tribute out of the Arena. For District Two, especially, the real stuff begins now. But Brutus, who won his Games based on strength and stubbornness, figures weakness is for other people.

    Summary

    Everyone knew a kid or two who went to the Centre, but no one ever remembered the volunteers. Now Kate sees them in a different light; she thinks of their terrified parents, the mothers who prayed that their children could just be normal, be like the others.

    Three people who knew Madeline watch Lyme's Reaping: her mother, her father, and the teacher who helped her find her dream. Only one makes the connection.

    Companion to Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice.

    Summary

    "You have a gift," Mags says, and Brutus swallows hard. "The Capitol will be watching you now. Some of us have the option of staying out of the spotlight, but not you. Not anymore. Learn to take that for the blessing and the curse that it is. Make it work for you."

    Victors are legend but mentors are heroes, and Mags is the only non-Two mentor Brutus gives his wholehearted respect.

    Snapshots of two very different mentors as they interact throughout the years.

    Summary

    She dreams about the Centre. In her dreams it's a big white building, huge and shiny, and everyone inside is beautiful but sharp around the edges and there are no dresses anywhere and nobody tells Madeline she's not behaving like a good little girl.

    Before she was Lyme, she was Madeline, an angry little girl who needed to learn to fight.

    Part of my exploration of victors before they were victors, and how the Centre works to make its killers.

    Summary

    “Lyme! What in the—” She chucks the ball at Brutus's head. He gets his hands up in time to catch it before she breaks his face.

    Before Brutus has time to finish his question, Lyme barks out “Come with me.”

    Brutus’s hands flex around the ball several times as his eyes try to bore past her defenses. Lyme waits, immovable as the mountains surrounding them, until Brutus throws the ball back.

    “Lemme get my court shoes.”

    Brutus and Lyme, just after the 58th Games.

    Summary

    (so we compromise. we make our dreams more realistic)

    Each year Brutus thinks, maybe; each year they die. Glorious, valiant deaths, but deaths all the same.

    Victors in District 2 have it the best in Panem, and Brutus will be the first to agree that he ain't got nothing to complain about. That doesn't mean everything works out the way he planned.

    Another in my Career Victor exploration series. A sequence of 10 drabbles on a theme.

    Summary

    On camera they're perfect; sharp, nasty, competitive, a pair but distant. Alone they snap together like one of Clove's knives into a target.

    The 74th Hunger Games from a mentor to her tribute. It's a game Lyme knows is rigged to lose, this year more than ever.

    'Come back', Lyme told Cato by the hovercraft. 'We'll forgive everything'. Marshmallows coated in a dead girl's blood. Killing Clove.

    A sequence of ten drabbles.
