Victorious

By InkyBlood

Drama / Other

Tradition

The victors had a tradition. The day after their newest member was announced, Haymitch would buy three bottles of vodka. They would gather in a room without cameras and microphones, and talk in soft voices.

They would talk about the twenty-three, but not of the victor. The tributes, but not the games. The Victors would talk and talk and cry and talk some more until the cold names weren't names anymore, but living, breathing people who had lived tragically short lives. Then, they would drink each and every one of them away.

In those not-quite funerals, the first talk of rebellion sprang up. The revolution was planned in a small storage room in the Capitol.

After the war, someone found the room, and pasted tiny headshots of every dead tribute on the walls, complete with their name and district. It was the memorial of the victors.

In truth, there are more memorials, trapped inside pages of notebooks that were carried and protected and hidden away.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

biviaana: i love the plot line of this story and i fell in love with all of the charterers. though the spelling is a bit off at times. but i do understand well to often.

cassy466: Great story, however there were some issues with the chapters and some grammar or poor choices of words. It would be better if it was revised before being posted.. and whatever happened to the mother? And how did the relationship with her and peter became what it is.. need more details
