  1. Summary

    Alma Coin's dictatorial tendencies don't go unnoticed by everyone; over the years, a faction splits from her rebellion and seeds itself through the districts. They have no resources, weapons, or strongholds, but they do have eyes and ears. And so they infiltrate and gather intelligence from both sides, waiting until the time when they can save Panem from President Snow and Alma Coin.

    When Brutus is pulled from the 75th Arena and accidentally resuscitated by a squad of District 2 Peacekeepers, the second resistance takes a chance. Coin considers District 2 an acceptable sacrifice -- a convenient scapegoat, full of loyalist traitors -- but after all, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

    A fix-it that isn't; nothing is rosy, nothing is easy, but maybe a few lives will be saved along the way. Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, beginning with Part 2.

    IN PROGRESS.

    NOTE: for those interested in the other side of things, kawuli is writing the 'rebellion from below' (based out of District 9) that takes place in the same continuity here.

    More than begin
    But less than forget

    Welcome back

  3. Summary

    Rokia grew up in District Six, where "Stay Alive" is good advice well before the Arena. When she's Reaped for the 71st Games, she counts on good instincts to keep her alive for the people at home who need her. Her mentor, Phillips, knows better than to hope, but she catches him hard from the start.

    But for Victors in Panem, the Games are just the beginning.

  4. Summary

    The prairies spawned the Progressives, back at the turn of the 20th century, and a fair few socialists in the 1930s–and in the Dark Days, the scattered depots fought the Capitol by doing nothing: shipping no grain out, bringing nothing in, getting by the way folks out here always have–with hard work and ingenuity and more than a little luck.

    So the Capitol killed off the depots, sent everyone to the City, formed roving crews to plant and harvest as the seasons moved from South to North, and the depots became nothing but elevators alone on the prairie, and crews crawled the spiderwebs of roads without seeing anyone else for weeks.

    Hard to organize, out here. But there’s a few lonely rebels, meeting in the city in secret, waiting for a moment that’s come before on these plains. Careful steps into something new, electricity in the air like the sky before a storm.

    And prairies know about storms.

    Summary

    Old Marethari, with all her grace and wisdom, had not seen past Merrill’s blood magic to her purpose. Had still loved her, and died for her, but it had been a pointless death, and Merrill knew that.

    A small mercy then, Hawke thought, that she’d been able to deflect the clan’s ire enough that they did not attack. She would not have relished ending the lot of them, but if it meant defending Merrill from their bloody-mindedness, she would not have faltered.

    Isabela and her, they were jealous as High Dragons about the things they loved.
