• Next Hunger Games
    Our next Hunger Games is a little different than our previous ones. Called "Battle Royale," this Hunger Games will feature one lucky class to be sent to the Hunger Games together. Mr. Dressler's honors history class tried to ignite revolution in Panem. And for their trouble, they will be sent to the arena together. Join us by making a high school junior (16-17 years old) from District 11. See the Battle Royale Subforum for more information. We aim to start in December so now's the time to start developing your character!

Marcus steps off the bus, into the, manure smelling district, this was the first time Marcus has been here, but he was curious to seeing what the district was like, he met his friend Deirdre in District 9 which looked beautiful. Marcus scanned around the area he was at, there was a bunch of animals everywhere. Marcus knew this was the Livestock district, but he didn't expect it to have so little places to explore. Marcus started walking down a walkway. He was passing by different farms, seeing the citizens that lived here in 10, they dressed differently then the people in 8. But it would make sense. Marcus pulls his jacket tighter to himself, it was pretty cold here in January. But 8 was much colder for him.

Marcus kept following the trail, eventually wandering off it. Marcus had stumbled upon a forest, 'A forest in 10?' Marcus couldn't believe it, he didn't really expect it. Marcus went inside the forest, looking around for a good tree that he could climb. He looked and looked until he finally found one. He took the first limb he could find and started climbing, making his way up to the top of the tree. Looking around the district.

Kipton's hand ran smoothly through the soft fur of his cat, her purrs were quiet yet he could feel the rumbles with each stroke. Her head was high and her eyes and mouth were closed as he continued to pet her while he picked at his breakfast. He ate slowly so he could savor each bite of the small meal. He lightly tapped on the cat's head one more time and stood up and began walking away, listening to the sound of her tail tapping the ground. It didn't take long but he made it to the front door of his small house, it seemed quiet. Everyone was out either trying to make money, shopping, or visiting other people. He turned the door handle to the side and pushed it out as he walked. He stepped outside, the smell of manure was a lot more evident outside yet he was used to the smell. He felt a chill in the air from the winter season, he saw his breath as he exhaled. He saw a few people walking around the neighborhood as he walked to the chicken coop nearby and picked up a bag of chicken feed. He opened the gate and tossed out a handful of chicken feed and let them out, they began pecking at the food and walking around. He hoped the cat wouldn't chase them today. He left them to eat knowing they shouldn't get into any trouble with the small fence and they'd most likely walk back into their coop. As he walked away from his house he felt the soft frozen grass crunch beneath his shoes, they were slightly worn but they were good enough to still use. As he walked he decided he would take a short trip to the forest and after a little while of walking he arrived to the edge of the forest. It was mainly surrounded by a field and there weren't a lot of trees allowing light to seep in but as it got deeper the forest was a bit more dense, it was really neat seeing the new landscape. As a younger child in elementary school he always thought only District Seven had a forest, it turns out many other districts have them. He began walking inside the forest locating the brown path that was only a few feet wide. He walked through the forest with his eyes looking around for animals, he saw the occasional squirrel running up the tree, he wasn't sure if they were squirrels but they looked like one. His legs were sore after all the walking so he looked for something to sit on. His legs were usually capable of walking a good distance from all of the walking he does but they would get sore eventually. He found a tree stump with grass growing around it and he walked over and sat very uncomfortably on it, he relaxed and took in the surroundings and continued watching for animals.

Marcus kept looking out towards the district. He saw a farm everywhere he looked, He did see some occasional kids playing around. But other then that, this district wasn't very active at this time. 'Crunch Crunch Crunch' Marcus was definitely familiar with this sound, it was the sound of frozen grass getting stepped on. Marcus looked downward, seeing a kid with light hair walking towards the forest. Marcus just observed, looking at the kid. Marcus saw the kid go towards a stump, and sit on it, it was not far from the tree. 'Well, I do need to practice for football anyway.' Marcus scooped up a handful of snow from a branch on the tree. Marcus crushed it into a ball and got lower down on the tree. He aims towards the boy, and Marcus throws it, hitting the kid right in the back of the head, Marcus watches as the white snowy crystals slide down his back.

Kipton sits on the branch noticing some of the breath going out from his mouth, he thought he heard some rumbling coming from nearby. He looked up into the trees in front of him trying to detect the moving animal, he never realized it but he had some pretty good senses. Second later he felt something collide with the back of his head causing his upper body to push down from the impact. As his head went down he gasped from the cool chill of snow running down his back and quickly he reached his backwards and began wiping it off. He knew the snow had to have came from a higher angle, maybe fell from a tree but the force seemed too strong. Clearly someone threw the snowball, he felt his heart begin to pound a little faster. He turned around looking in the direction it may have came from, he wondered if a child threw it or if he had an enemy. He felt a little nervous from the different ideas of potential attackers in his mind.

Marcus chuckled a bit when he saw the boy look around rapidly as if he was being attacked by somebody, I guess he technically was. Marcus tried to climb back up, but slipped on the branch he was holding onto. Marcus fell into a bunch of snow, making a loud 'Schhh' Noise, Marcus looked from the snow, observing the boy. Marcus tried to stay hidden in the snow as best as he could, but stealth wasn't exactly his forte.

As Kipton gazed into the distance he watched as a human figure fell from a tree crashing into the snow. The sides of Kipton's lips rolled up into a small smirk, he felt as if it served that person right since the person's whole body was in the snow now. He wouldn't leave the person there, however, even though the snowball was a rude gesture. He ran up to where he saw the person fall and when he got close enough he saw simple features of the person, it was a boy that looked to be somewhat around Kipton's age. Kipton wasn't exactly a socialist so all he said was, "Hello?"

Marcus looked up at the boy who was above him. 'hello?' Marcus had heard him say. Marcus got out of the snow, patting himself down. He looks at the boy and says. "Hey, didn't mean to startle you with that snowball down there. I just saw an opportunity and I took it." Marcus looked at the boy, examining him, the games were soon, and Marcus was deciding wether he should trust this one. "I'm, Marcus, District 8." Marcus holds his hand out waiting for a handshake.

Kipton watched as the boy stood up, he had blonde hair similar to Kipton's yet the boy had blue eyes. He didn't recognize who this person was, Kipton never met everyone at his school but he'd seen a lot of people. Kipton's head turned to the side while he looked at the boy trying to figure out what just happened. Kipton listened as the boy spoke about taking an opportunity, Kipton's eyebrows pulled closer together slightly. He didn't understand what the boy meant by opportunity, what kind of opportunity was he looking for? His eyebrows went back to their normal place and Kipton just stared at the boy as he introduced himself, Kipton never met someone from a different district. Well at least another teenager. Kipton put out his glove covered hand and grasped the other boys hand who seemed to be wearing better clothes, he was from eight after all. "My name is Kipton, what are you doing here?" He asked curiously still assessing what happened.

Marcus looked at the boy, he found out his name was Kipton. "Well, Kipton. I'm here in 10 because I wanted to explore this district, I wanted to know how, uh. Beautiful, compared to my district." Marcus smiled a little. "Kind of a dump compared to my district." Marcus said snickering a little. "I mean, wheres all the places to explore around here? I saw a weird wooden circle a ways back, but that was probably the most exciting thing I've seen here." Marcus picked up some snow and formed it into the shape of a ball. Marcus tossed it back and forth between his hands.

As Marcus went on explaining how District 10 is trash compared to District 8, he tried to think of some cool things. In the summer time, the pastures look beautiful from the lively green grass the the streams that flow through them. Kipton also thought the forests looked pretty nice. Kipton remembered he would love going to the animal shelter and he'd admire the animals there even if they weren't groomed and smelly. Though whenever he'd leave he'd be sad because they looked miserable from his absence, people usually never adopt them. The houses were small in ten and power would often go out, usually the lights in his house are off during the day time so they don't face that problem except with some appliances they need working. Kipton realized he was lost in through for a moment and snapped back to the conversation, with a small hesitation he calmly said, "Well, you came at the wrong time."

Marcus looked at Kipton as he mentioned Marcus had came at a wrong time. "I guess you're right. I mean, plant life blooms more when it's not freezing all the time." Marcus saw snowflakes fall all the sudden. It was starting to lightly snow. "But, Winter is much more fun." Marcus threw the snowball he had, at Kipton.

Kipton stared at Marcus with a blank face as he mentioned the plant life in the other season which was obvious. Kipton didn't really know how to reply so he said nothing and let Marcus admire the snow which would only make Kipton's house colder this night if the electricity goes out. As he stared at the snow falling he saw Marcus's arm move with his peripheral vision, he looked down to see the snowball raising. He would have tried to dodge but he didn't have enough reaction time and the snowball collided with his shoulder. His shoulder moved to the side and Kipton just looked at Marcus and brushed the snow off of his shoulder. He said nothing and just wondered whether he liked this kid or not. Kipton didn't know who this was really and the snowball throwing was a bit rude since they weren't friends. After taking a deep breath Kipton simply said, "I have to go home now, I need to check on the chickens, this isn't their favored weather." He definitely used it as an excuse to leave Marcus but at the same time it was true. Unhesitatingly, he turned around and began walking away.

Marcus looked at the kid as he was walking away. "I didn't expect you to be scared of a little snow." Marcus laughed a little and started walking behind Kipton. "Let me guess, you have the best farm in town?" Marcus said chuckling a little.

Kipton continued walking away ignoring Marcus's comment about the snowballs, weird how he assumes that when all Kipton said was he had to go check on the chickens. He ignored the comment and continued walking. Kipton then heard footsteps in the snow behind him, he rolled his eyes knowing that Marcus was following. Kipton always got irritated at the people that invited themselves places. He said nothing as Marcus came closer and began talking about the best farm clearly trying to patronize Kipton which was stupid. He wanted to tell the boy to shut up and go away but he wasn't as rude as him. "No, we only own chickens. We plan on buying a cow when we can afford it," He said not enthusiastically awaiting the boy's reply.

Marcus listens as Kipton talks about how they only have chickens, a cow when they can afford. "Well, I know how being poor is like." Marcus keeps following the boy until he gets to the edge of the forest, and Marcus just sits down. "You know what. Sorry about calling your district a dump." Marcus looks around some more. "And, Uh, sorry throwing a snowball at you when you didn't expect it."
