What if the 2nd Rebellion failed...?
What if the Capitol managed to subdue Katniss and had her and all her accomplices executed for all the Districts to watch?
What if they overpowered the rebels hiding in District 13, killing President Coin, and forced them to release control over their nuclear weapons?
25 years on, the rules have been changed. People as young as 10 and old as 21 are entered into the draw; and anyone past that age is entered into a separate lottery during the Victory Tour, in which the winner of the Games draws the names of 2 unfortunate adults to be executed live on stage!
It's been 100 years now since the Games began, and the theme for the 4th Quarter Quell has been announced... Only Tributes who are related shall be entered!
Yay for jumping on the bandwagon! XD
I adore the Hunger Games and the thought of using my -Alpha- characters as tributes made too much sense! It's one of the few AU stories of these guys I've put much thought into!
A few characters I had to make up on the spot using the RandomNameGenerator, especially since most of the Alpha's have no surnames :S
- Most of these have their image very altered for their appearance in the Chariot (Savannah's hair shaved into a mohawk, Petra's given her wig, Danniky's b.rown hair/green eyes are changed, etc)
- District 13 manage both Graphite and Coal mining now, as there's no more District 12. 13 is now one of the biggest District's as the entire population was moved out of their compound to above ground; their base is now a large military hub
- There are no longer Career's; the Capitol now forbids any training prior to the Games (though some still train in secrecy and some school's still run classes)
- Kids now are much less shy showing their absolute hatred for the Capitol; some are much more rebellious than others
- 13 has never came close to winning the Games; the Capitol purposely kills off their Tributes since they're still butthurt about the rebellion. They disguise it as bad luck as they're relatively new to the Games, but 13's citizens know it's not the case and know having their name called is an instant death sentence...
District 1: Bibi and Castel Etzkorn
Ages: 15 and 17
Relation: Niece and Uncle (not very close)
Info: They make Bibi look more violent-minded and intimidating during her interviews since she's only small, useless and doesn't have much chance without the help of sponsors
District 2: Maricela and Nolan Benzine
Ages: 19 and 10
Relation: Siblings (close)
Info: Nolan volunteered in place of his cousin Junipper (also 10); stylists had problems with Maricela refusing to wear their clothes and needed guards to 'persuade' her every time she made public appearances; Nolan is ridiculously b.rave bordering on reckless
District 3: Savannah and Jace Nevarez
Ages: 18 and 14
Relation: Siblings (mortal enemies)
Info: They get many sponsors due to their hatred and promises to kill the other themselves; their father died in an 'accidental' fire at their factory, their mother killed during the previous year's Victory Tour reaping; Jace has respect for every Tribute besides his sister and gladly talks to them; hates killing kids as he looks after a lot of them back home; treats everyone's body with respect after killing them; Jace allies with the District 7 tributes throughout the games
District 4: Danniky and Lineon Perla
Ages: 18 and 12
Info: Danniky is extremely shy and nervous; almost b.reaks down in tears when she's in the chariot due to her revealing outfit; cries for an hour when they dye her hair blue and give her similar coloured contacts to look more ocean-y; Lineon temporarily sides with Petra at one point; wants to kill himself every time a Capitol citizen makes comparisons between his hair and surname ('cause it's oh so original)
District 5: Kadis and Hanno McKasson
Ages: 11 and 16
Relation: Siblings (very close)
Info: Hanno is one of the older ones who plots with the others to get the youngest to safety at the Cornucopia; Kadis joins Petra's group of kids a couple days into the Games; Hanno previouly worked in a solar panel plant (which made specialized panels for Capitol vehicles)
District 6: Nenita Delrie and Tobiah Nott
Ages: Both 14
Relation: Cousins (she likes to think he likes her, is totally not the case :P)
Info: Nenita is one of those least likely to survive the Games due to her being a lazy clueless b.rat; her token is the silver/pink hairclip; one of the few who actually wants to go to the Capitol; Tobiah is completely different in personality; already working and doing whatever he can to earn money
District 7: Harriet and Daryll Ravello
Ages: 16 and 17
Relation: Siblings (very close)
Info: Both worked in the same paper factory; Daryll is very skilled with blades; his token is a very old sharktooth necklace; Harriet is a good strategist; her token is a paper flower attatched to a paperclip she wears in her hair
District 8: Avis and Tineo Hascall

Info: The only two to volunteer in place of both chosen Tributes as they were only young; both know they'll die; both help kids survive the Cornucopia bloodbath; DeLaan's wife Yestynn b.roke up with him after the Reaping because she was angry/devastated for him volunteering (later regrets it)
District 13: Petra Helioskovic and Jezi Irvan
Ages: 13 and 19
Relation: Distant cousins (not close)
Info: Had no knowledge of the other's existence before the Reaping; Petra has Alopecia and is made to wear wigs by her prep team; Petra never hides her disgust for the Capitol, even during her televised appearances; Petra serves only as a protector for the younger Tributes, not trying to kill anyone since she knows there's no point (though there's still one death she helps with)...
