Okay so you’ll have to bear with my scatterbrained thoughts as I type this out. So the people playing are: Me (obviously), Julie, Ally, Karlee, Riley, Katie, Chelle, Bianca, Rhyan, Susan, Carrie, Dani, Sami, Lizzy, Manda, and Kellie. Everyone else, sorry but you don’t get to participate.
The main purpose for this post is that I was watching Catching Fire and so I’m going to run these next couple weeks as follows. As of this post, our Hunger Games Week (which is actually closer to three weeks) is now open. Today the capitol has announced that for this years quarter quell, the tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors. For some of you (especially those in the lower districts) you know that this means that you are going back. The reason I’m opening Hunger Games Week up now, is for you guys to play with the psychological trauma that your characters probably have from their first games. If you want a PTSD flair-up, have fun. If you want a panic attack, go for it. You don’t have to, but I think it would be fun. This time would also be the perfect time to think about how your character won their games, just remember that the specific year they won will only be assigned to the ones who are reaped so don’t put down any years yet in your headcanons. Yes we would love to see your headcanons. Also on your list of things to think about is your relationships, if your ship is in the same district: are they married, do they have kids, etc. If your ship isn’t: is your character married to someone else, do they have a crush on their other half but have never done anything because they only see each other in the capitol, etc. Remember, you all are victors, you all know each other. Come to terms with the fact that if you’re back you’ll have to play kill or be killed with your friends.
Next Monday, I shall do the reaping. The victor of the 75th Hunger Games will be drawn that Wednesday so that gives everyone plenty of time to notice if they win or die (chances are you’re gonna die) and to figure out how they want to die. During this time, feel free to design the tribute parade outfit, to rp some training, to have tear-filled goodbyes to friends a family (especially those ships in the same district where one is going but the other isn’t, those that aren’t drawn will still be going as mentors), if you want to write-up how the interview with Cesar goes, that’s fair game too.
Now, the games will officially open on Monday the 19th and will go for a week. That part is pretty self-explanatory so I’m not going to go into any detail. Just remember that if you want your character to die by some mechanism of the arena go ahead and ask, I never leave this place so you’ll get a speedy response. I will be designing the arena and I will make sure that a description of it (because I cannot draw to save my life) is up for you to view no later than Sunday night before the games start.
Last thing, and this is the part that I want everyone to take note of, during these next two weeks, feel free to rp the intro to the games but also feel free to continue rping like normal. When the games officially start it will be only Hunger Games so for those lovelies not playing you’ll unfortunately have to sit back and relax for a week. While the normal rping is still going on, all Hunger Games posts need to have that information in the original starter. So for example I would put something like: I don’t wanna go back | Open | Hunger Games, just so everyone knows that this is a hunger games post and we don’t have someone talking about school and someone talking about games in the same post.
If you have any questions just come talk to me, I don’t bite….much
Happy Hunger Games and may the odds be ever in your favor,
