• 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!

The 101-Fall Hunger Games are wrapping up. You have 24-48 hours to enter the final posts. Members can still post in the "History of Sixth Station" and the "Connection" forums.

School is over, it's time for Thea to come back home. She doesn't really want to but she has no choice. The sun is beginning to come down, it's the end of the afternoon. There are not any people in the street she's walking now, everyone is at work and the others students have taken their own way to go home. It's calm, she enjoys that silence before she arrives at home where his father is probably drunk. If there was only him, she wouldn't comes back. But there is her little brother and she can't let him. When her father discovered he was deaf, he wanted to give him away. But Thea was taking good care of him and the father was tired to think about it. So he let him lives under his roof, but he doesn't do anything for him. Thea cooks for him, helps him when he needs. Unfortunately, he doesn't communicate. So they don't speak to each other.

Here she is, at home. She enters without saying anything. She hears a man's voice screaming her to clean the house. She doesn't reply and goes to her room. It's crazy how her father can drink a lot of alcohol everytime and be poor at the same time. Thea open her room's door, let her little bag and goes to see her brother in the room next to hers. He's sit down in front of the window, looking outside. He often does that. She'd likes to know what he's thinking about. She always wanted to know but he always stays quiet. Not a word, not a sign. She gets closer to him and taps his shoulder. He turns, looks at her and gets back to his window. Thea stayed a few minutes with him, looking outside, trying to understand. But she still doesn't, and she can't stays here with him everytime.

She gets out of the house, time to get fishes. The port is not that far and she's there fifteen minutes later. She stops at a little hut on the beach to take her fishing rod and goes on the wood's pontoon to access to a good profundity of water. Then she begins to fish, looking at the horizon, dreaming of impossible things.

Finnian missed the fishing boat some days. It was part of his life as a child, but after Lizzie's victory and then their parents' deaths, the boat was long gone from their life.

He missed the boat mostly because, as much as it would mean more work instead of what he did now, it would mean a more normal life than this. Not that he had hoped that Lizzie had died in the Arena at all, so much as... well, if she had, he wouldn't have to pretend to be a Career to be accepted by his peers. Worse yet, he wouldn't have the consistent and festering worry that perhaps - just perhaps - he would be far more likely to be in the Arena himself.

It was on these days that he found himself drawn to the beach, wandering the pier a bit carefully. At least it was easy to get out here - it helped that he didn't have any kind of brace on his arm any more. He was free, at least, from that. That was relieving.

At the end of the pier, he saw a girl who looked rather familiar - she was... probably in his grade at school. Maybe even had a class or two with her, actually. He waved at her and called out to her. "Hey, Sombrend?" He was never good with first names - only last names. Or else nicknames. She was a fairly normal girl that he remembered. Perhaps a little dense sometimes, but most people were as much.

She was dreaming awake, what is there far away this horizon ? Is there another land, much better than this, where everyone can live properly ? A land where the sky is bluer than this one ? A land without clouds and, the best of it, a land where there are no killing games. Yeah, that's a dream. A weak dream, but a beautiful dream. It always has been difficult for Thea to be the dream's girl. She secretly dreams about good worlds but there is another part of her who doesn't want to live this place. She always lived here and the last thing she would do is leave. The better thing for her is to not be chosen for the games and she'll just have to live a simple life. But how can she with her violent dad ? And her little brother ? It'll never be normal. Not in this world.

"Hey, Sombrend ?"

She blinks. Does someone just called her or was it just a dream ? She turns, see a boy. Oh, okay. It wasn't a dream.

"What are you doing here ?"

She told, obviously she didn't know what else to say. She droops her head and raise it , why can't she says hello ?

Finnian responded to the question with a shrug. "I wanted to visit the pier." He replied. "I like to see the boats coming in and leaving." It was familiar to him, even if it was familiar as a half-remembered childhood reality. Sometimes, that familiarity was welcome. Those days had been easier, not because he was a child, but because the Reaping had been no more than an unrealistic fear for him.

Unlike now.

"What are you up to?" He asked, although he knew the answer. Fishing - with a pole, not a net as he was familiar. "Trying to get a bite?" He articulated further. She seemed a bit intruded... Perhaps he had? He didn't know this girl as well as he knew some of the others in his class. Perhaps that was why.

He replied a logical answer, one that Thea could understand. Indeed, this place is beautiful and relaxing. It can makes you forget the bad things. Except when you're really hungry and you can't get fishes. But apart this, this place is cool.

He asked questions back. The first didn't need an answer and the second was more to make the conversation goes on.

"- Yeah, but it seems fishes don't want to become my dinner."

She sighed and shrugged, weary to wait but happy of the calm ambiance.

"- Do you fish ?"

Finnian chuckled at the idea that fishes wouldn't want to be dinner. Well, he supposed everything had some kind of sense of survival, didn't they?

Even fish.

"Yes, but I'm more handy with nets and spears in fishing than with fishing poles." Nets seemed to gather more, although they were far more useful in shallower waters and in the coves that peppered the shore line. Not that he had needed to even use such skills as of late, but more than once he had been recruited to help out a friend in gathering more fish for their market stall, which he often did willingly without pay.

It was something to do and it was usually fun for him to be around his friends, even if he had simply been working.

She was thinking about spears now he had mentioned this. Her dad had a boat with everything we need to fish well. She didn't use it often but she liked to go on the water. She turned the head, watched the sea and returned to the guy still behind her.

"- Maybe we could take my father's boat one day and go fishing. Today it's too late."

She turned the head some seconds to watch her fishing rod. Still nothing. She could stay here all night it wouldn't change anything. Usually, it would have bitten. It seems the odds weren't in her favor, or more clearly : the fishes.
