2 Works in Brutus & Lyme (Hunger Games)
04 Apr 2015
“Look, boss, Brutus would kill us if we had anything to do with feelings, right, but he loves competition. Plus these Games sucked and everyone is all mopey and weird, and I don’t know about you but that’s a shitty way to end a decade that got us three Victors. So, barbecue and a contest, and yeah everything still sucks but at least we’re all alive and awesome.”
The 20th anniversary of Brutus' win falls on a Games year no one in the Victor's Village feels much like celebrating. The younger Victors deem this unacceptable, and cook up the best kind of shindig: a 'who's the bigger badass' contest between Lyme and Brutus, because nothing says 'party' in District 2 like a little friendly competition.

“I’m not hallucinating!” Devon pushes a hand through his hair. “I saw Lyme leave the house and I stopped behind a tree so they wouldn’t catch me and I saw them. She turned back and he held her face and he kissed her, like this."
After years of teasing Lyme and Brutus for their horror at the Capitol thinking they're a couple, their Victors start to wonder if maybe the rumours aren't true after all.
