Skin Deep
                               Skin Deep
      If there's anything to be learned from the world that I live in, it's that appearances are everything. Everyone says that the Hunger Games are not a beauty pageant. This is true, to an extent. Beauty will only get you so far, but it will get you sponsors. And, nobody gets anywhere without sponsors. The Gamemakers make sure of that. It's a very simple way of making sure that this story ends the way the audience wants it to. It's a gruesome, bloody fairy tale, and every fairy tale needs a princess. The people of the Capitol have everything. They spend all of their considerable free time preserving and enhancing their own aesthetic appeal. My job is to make them preserve mine as well. I am that lovely little reprieve from the horrific images that fill their scr

I'm almost arrogant enough to take pride in the fact that no one has come looking for me yet. I know that it has less to do with my stealth, and more to do with the simple fact that everyone knows I'm an easy kill. It's a matter of time, really. The Gamemakers must be getting restless by now, with Cato and the pair from Twelve on opposite sides of the arena. I made a point of keeping tabs on them, watching from a safe distance once I had my pack, which held enough food for one day. Considering what was in the packs from Two, I think it's obvious the audience has lost interest in me. I'm not a power-player, so I'm pretty sure they were hoping to weed me out, leaving the real competitors to spice up the show. Cato went after the boy from Eleven. I know that much. He seemed pretty messed up when his district partner didn't make it out of the Feast. I admit I was surprised he cared. But then again, she was his best hope against the girl from Twelve, being the only remaining tribute

Countdown
A/N- In honor of THG coming out on DVD soon, I'm doing a few more oneshots. They will probably all be short, because I'm on a "moment" kick. This one was done to round out "Gone", which is an exploration of Cato's complex feelings for Clove. I felt like I needed to write something from her perspective. Please review, it makes me happy.
Countdown
55…54…53…
When I was a child, training for the Games, a previous victor came to give a talk on what it was like in the arena. She said that when the countdown ends, you are left with two options. You can be afraid of the other tributes. You can run away and wait for someone braver to find you and take you out, dying a coward's death. That's the first choice, the one almost everyone makes. To be a victor, you have to take another path. You have to be the person weaker tributes fear, make them pray that they never encounter you alive. I know how much the others fear me, and it sends a thrill of anticipation through me. The kids fro

Irrevocable
Elena woke up with a splitting headache. She'd been out the night before with Caroline and Bonnie, and Caroline had compelled the bartender to keep her well-stocked in tequila. According to her, Elena had forgotten how to have fun with all that had been going on. She vaguely remembered leaving the Grill at closing, Caroline half carrying her down the sidewalk. She had been trashed, quite a feat for her. Elena breathed a grateful sigh that it hadn't been Damon who'd brought her home. Her relief would be short-lived. Elena stretched out an arm and jumped. She wasn't alone. A very shirtless Damon was gazing back at her, smirking in a way that couldn't possibly mean anything good. She examined her own body. She was in her camisole from last night, but her jeans had been removed, leaving her in a pair of relatively skimpy briefs. Oh shit.
"Oh, my god. What...What happened?" Elena was starting to hyperventilate. Damon looked like Christmas had come early. "I thought Caroline brought me home?

Dandelions and Valley Songs
I've long since given up trying to remind myself who I am. It doesn't matter that I survived the Hunger Games, or that I was the Mockingjay. District 12 is in ruins. So many people I love have been ripped from my life that I've lost all sense of identity. I never knew how much I depended on them to find my true north. Now that they're gone, I'm broken. The Mockingjay died with the end of the war, she died with Madge, with Finnick, and with Prim. She died when the person she trusted most escaped to District 2, to lick his wounds and wash the stain of her sisters' blood from his hands. It will never be gone. Not for me. No matter how much I miss him, I'll never look at him the way that I did before the Reaping. That Gale is gone forever. Without the people who gave me purpose, I don't want to be Katniss Everdeen anymore. I don't want to remember. But I do. I see their faces every night, hear their screams in every cell of my body. Sleep brings terror, but morning is unbearably worse. It

Sweet Irony
I swear to god, the second we get down to the top eight, I'll kill her myself. It's half the reason I was so keen to volunteer. Since we were twelve, and she hit puberty, she's done nothing but rattle on about clothes, and her hair, and which products would clear up my "unfortunate skin condition". And all these years, while she's been fantasizing about parades and stylists, I've been envisioning driving a spear through the invisible pimple that apparently mars her otherwise perfect forehead. If I hadn't been so distracted by the flaming morons from Twelve, I would have pushed her out of the chariot before the Games even began, consequences be damned.
As it is, I'm not allowed to hurt her until the alliance breaks, which is still five cannons away. Cato thinks she'll be useful for long-distance attacks against stronger tributes, because she has a bow. What he doesn't understand is that she'd never even held one before the bloodbath. The only way she'd be any help with someone like Thre

Kiss In the Rain
     I still remember when Finnick taught me to swim. Not just me, but all of the sixes. It was a cloudy, rainy, gloomy day.  He was so graceful, even at eleven. He moved through the water like magic. As I watched him dive beneath the foamy crests, and felt the steady push and pull of the waves against my body, I could almost forget the reason I was there. I say 'almost' because none of us can ever forget what we were doing. We were in training, as each of us had been since reaching the age of five.
Being an orphan in District 4 meant being responsible for preserving the innocence of children lucky enough to have people to miss them. We were fed and clothed and taught to survive. We were given the best chance possible. Then, when we were old enough, the strongest volunteered for the Games. It was a cruel reality that we faced, but it was better than letting everyone live in fear. We were respected, honored even. In some districts, we were called Careers, i

There are few things in life that thrill me as much as thousands of nerds gathered into a small space. Youmacon 2012 was no exception. I was only able to attend on Saturday, but it was a blast. The first panel I went to was called "Ethics of Death Note". Not many people know how much I adore this anime. I had anticipated a thorough, in-depth, philosophical discussion on the different metaphors and character dynamics present in the story (I am such a freaking Ravenclaw :ashamed: ). I was disappointed. However, we DID play Death Note Mafia. AND I GOT TO BE L!!!! And I DOMINATED!!! There were two L's and two Lights. I got both Kiras in a total of 3 turns. BWAHAHAHA!!! Anyway...

After that, I went to the Fairy Tail panel- which was awesome, because Todd Haberkorn and Cherami Leigh were there. And the best part. Wait for it...Todd personally gave me (and, like, everybody else) an M&M. :squee: I managed to keep my composure, which was difficult because Hikaru gave me candy. And then I almost ran face first into Caitlin Glass an hour later.

Overall, it was amazing. There were so many fantastic cosplayers, and people were so nice. It was also an excuse for me to wear my Death the Kid hat (which I knitted myself, thank you very much ;) ) in an environment where people actually know what it is. Now, to think up a good cosplay for next year. Any ideas? :)

I have this weird thing where I constantly fall in love with characters who only exist in books and TV shows. Then I draw them. Kinda badly. I also write. And knit. And make awesome jewelry.
