    Summary

    Ataraxia - a state of freedom from emotional instability, anxiety ; tranquility.

    The entire stadium erupted into chaos as did Sander’s heart because gliding smoothly on his firebolt, one hand clutching the still fluttering snitch and the other fisted towards the sky, Robbe looked like he could command the heavens to fall down on the very pitch that screamed his name.

    Summary

    Now, that all of his librarian work was done, at least until someone returned a book to the circulation counter and he would go off in search of its rightful spot, Robbe could focus on this essay, or a story, that his writing teacher had assigned as an “introduction” to their mindset as writers. And, the topic that had been chosen by his other 25 classmates was soulmates.

    He let out a breath of air, burying his face in his hands.

    Robbe hated soulmates.

    Or, rather, he hated the idea of soulmates.

    Summary

    Ever since the rule change in the Third Quarter Quell, there are two Victors allowed in every Games, but only on two rules: that each of them have at least one kill under their belt, and that they’re from two different Districts.

    Some people see such a rule as mercy. Allowing you not to have to brain in the head of your final opponent, of being able to have someone who understands you, of the Capitol showing its mercy on the Districts by allowing yet another child to live.

    The old-school Victors certainly act that way. Robbe knows they resent the younger generation, and he gets it, honestly, even if he hates it. They got to bring someone out of the Arena. They have someone by their side who understands their specific Arena, someone who gets why they flinch at particular sounds or colors or substances.

    As for Robbe's, well, he has Sander Drisen. District One. Robbe’s lone ally in the Arena- and the boy he's in love with.

    (How to survive the Capitol when you're one half of a Victor pair.)

    Summary

    When Shiro's long-time partner—in life and in dance—exits his life, it's like all of Shiro's joy goes with him.

    But then he meets Keith, who's fire and beauty and grace rolled into one, and when they dance together, Shiro's reminded of all the reasons that he ever loved dance in the first place.

    When Adam tells Shiro that he'll be competing with a new partner, it's pride that makes Shiro lie. It's desperation that makes him ask Keith to be his partner. (It's love at first sight that makes Keith say yes.)
