• 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!

Hallie sat in some field not far from the main part of Ten. She had to take her goat out to the field every once in a while, her parents were getting mad that the thing was eating all the grass in their backyard. It wasn't her fault the thing had to eat, but she didn't mind bringing it to the field and watching her goat eat the grass there. She was pretty sure it wasn't illegal, if it was... she'd just cry and beg until they let her off.

She was losing track of time, but she was sure it had only been a few days since the end of the Games, and since the feast. Watching the Games and everything that was happening at home, it was just... trauma. Hallie hated to admit it, but she didn't know how she was still acting the same. Sure she had started little forms of rebellion towards her parents, but she was still the same. Even after everything with the Games, Hallie was pretty sure she'd just go on with her life. But that was bad, she missed her brothers, even if one was still alive. Her parents had kicked him out, and yet it didn't seem like anything was wrong.

Her forms of rebellion were small. Naming the goat she had found after Seb, always awkwardly staring at her parents, doing little things to make life harder on them. It was the only way she knew how to deal with things now. Take care of her goat, ignore her parents, and do well in school. That was enough to last her the next three years until she was eighteen, or so she hoped.

Bastien walked over to her, not being far off to start because of the rope leash she had him on, nudging her hand with his small head. "Ablutophobia, the fear of washing or bathing," she told the small goat, who seemed happy enough.

Hallie sat up a little straighter from her spot in the grass and watched her goat wobble back off to a patch of grass. She sighed and looked at the sky, wondering how the next few weeks of the total end of the Games were going to run. She was sure she'd be seeing her brother on the screen even more, more than she had hoped. She just hoped no one else she loved would get reaped, not ever in this life at least.

Sebastian wasn't really busy with being a courier today, so he took to taking care of Arrow. He was little, really, and shy. More than once, Seb had to take him away from the other animals at the Arcadia's house... Not that they ever hurt the little guy, but Arrow seemed to be so afraid in the new environment. It was around these times that he either took the puppy outside or back to his room.

Today, he had decided to go out with Arrow in tow. He knew that Meadow was following like she always did - possibly with Sino as well. The kitten had taken to following around the fox - they both seemed to like to hunt mice and rats together, judging by the times that Sebastian had to clean up after their meals on occasion.

There was a field of grass he had snuck into. He let Arrow down onto the ground, the small leash he had on him still there as he led Sebastian along. However curiously, the dog seemed to be moving towards another person, as if going towards the odd goat that they had. "He-" He started to greet until he fully realized who it was. Hallie, who... at least seemed to look all right physically. But, still, he felt odd around her if only because he wasn't sure what his parents - no, her parents would do if they found he had talked to her now. "Hi, Hallie."

Hallie didn't hear the foot steps up to her as she watched her goat play in the grasses around him. The little goat seeming to ignore the world around him, Hallie didn't mind because the goat was there to fill whatever holes had been left at least at the moment.

Acerophobia- Fear of sourness.

When she heard her name she turned toward the sound. Sebastian. She blinked, wondering if it was actually him for a second. But it was her brother and she couldn't help but give him one of her awkward smiles. "Hey, Seb," she said quickly.

She pulled gently on Bastien's leash and stood up to talk to her brother. Even if their-- her, parents had kicked him out, he'd still be her brother. Just as Orsino would always be her brother. She dusted the grass off of herself and looked at Seb. "How--" she started, trying to figure out how to word what she wanted to ask right. "How have you been?" she asked. She felt bad. Her parents had kicked him out because of Orsino, but they loved each other... and it didn't matter because Orsino had been in the Games.

Hallie looked at the goat as it trotted over to her. "Maaa"ing happily at her.

The question was... real, he felt. Real because so often people asked how someone felt, but never really meant to hear the answer. So often, it was just a sense of being polite and the expect - no, required - response was something along the lines of just damn fine. But this was Hallie. She knew to some expect what had gone on, even if she maybe did not understand the full reasons why he had been kicked out... But, then again, no. She was smart. She would know.

"I've been... good, I think. As good as can be expected." If they got angry at him for this... well, they could just deal with it. Besides, he thought they would have told Hallie if they didn't want her talking to him. Granted, she could be just going against any such orders. "I found people who are helping me, anyway." Strangers, maybe, but... He could not afford to be picky or prideful, as he so desperately wanted to be.

"And umm... how are you dealing?" Maybe she hadn't had Orsino confess such love for her, but they all lived under the same roof for four years - at least, four because Orsino had only arrived at fourteen himself. He wondered if Orsino knew - knew how much it all changed for them. Arrow was sniffing carefully along the grass, edging very carefully towards the goat that Hallie had in tow.

Hallie just nodded slightly. Her brother, or whatever she had to call him now, was doing fine. She wanted to twinge away and cry because it didn't seem like a big deal, but it was. Hallie wasn't the over emotional type, but she felt like what happened in their lives were big, even if she hadn't lost her life of her home... she had just lost her brothers.

Acarophobia- Fear of itching or of the insects that cause itching.

"That's good. That you at least have somewhere to stay," she said. The worry for her brothers were still there, even if they weren't really her real brothers or the fact that they had only been siblings since she was ten. But it didn't change anything for her.

Hallie bit the inside of her cheek at his question. She really had to think because she was just the person to over think the little things. "The best way any of us could. Rebel against parents and get a pet goat," she answered with a slight smile.

Sebastian only grinned wryly at that last statement. "In that case, train the goat to kick them in the kneecaps for me. That'd be nice." There was an edge of sarcasm in his voice, but he knew that he would quite like for that to really happen to them. They more than deserved it as far as he was concerned and, well, Sebastian never claimed to be the most moral person.

"What's the goat's name anyway?" He asked, watching it curiously as Arrow watched it. It was a cute little thing and he could see the use in it. It would give milk - either that they could use or sell. Could even make it into goat cheese, which was always rather good on the few times that he had eaten it. "Sally?" He asked, unsure if the goat was even a girl or not. He was not in the habit of looking under a goat to check that and didn't really have the urge to start that habit.

Hallie laughed some at Sebastian's request. It was actually a good idea for Hallie to rebel even more in the slightest ways. Teaching her goat to do little things to make her parents mad. It was actually a good idea, and plus it wasn't like she'd let them do anything to her goat. "That's actually a good idea," she grinned at Seb.

"No... it's name isn't Sally. It's Bastien." She smiled and shrugged. It might have been awkward to name her goat after her brother. But it was her form of rebellion towards her parents at least. Show them that Sebastian was still part of the family, at least in Hallie's eyes. That they'd be reminded of him because of the goat. "Anyways, when did you get a dog?" she raised an eyebrow at him in question.

Achluophobia- Fear of darkness.

Sebastian laughed slightly at the name, unable to keep himself from smiling really. All right, so it was a little creepy... But he could recognize the genius of naming the goat after him. He wondered how many times they had already looked at the goat with a sense of unease... Maybe they had kicked him out, but Sebastian could not bring himself to think that they did not feel guilty at all... Mostly because they probably did feel some guilt.

"A few days ago. Just snagged one from this cardboard box that was set up in the square." He shrugged. "The family I live with doesn't seem to mind. They already have a lot of animals, so... well, another one doesn't hurt. I take care of him as I can anyway." And the others, too... Though Meadow seemed to take care of herself just fine and, notably, so did Sino... Well, for the most part anyway. About the only other one of any grave concern was Coffee. She was mostly kept in her cage unless he let her out to play on the bed. "His name's Arrow."

He contemplated telling her about his bow... But this he found unwise. He knew how to use knives - and now was adjusting to that bow. Originally meant to hunt, but now it was just a desperate attempt to keep his hands from doing something else - something that Orsino would have voluntarily died to keep him from doing, he was sure... Well, if he had not voluntarily died as a choice to evade the cancer, anyway.

Hallie smiled back at him. Clearly naming her goat after Seb wasn't all that bad in his mind. Yes it was awkward, but it was better than nothing. At least he knew that he wouldn't be forgotten in the house they had all lived in for four years. That he now knew that she was making an effort to make her parents feel guilty whenever she could. It was a good thing to know at least he knew the name of her goat now. It wouldn't be so awkward at least.

"In the square? Weird. I got my goat in Seven's square," she pointed out. She wondered if there were other districts with other animals now. But she was content with her goat, it was a nice pet at least. "But he is cute. And its a good thing that they don't mind animals, I guess. I mean, them not minding them at least," she said. It would have been nice to have a family not care about pets, but she wasn't much help when it came to that factor. Naming her goat after the brother that was kicked out and all. She figured if she got another animal she could make the guilt worse in her house by naming it after Orsino or something.

Acousticophobia- Fear of noise.

She was the lesser known sibling at least. Not as much trauma for her, she guessed. All of Panem didn't know about her at least. Not like they knew Seb from Orsino. Hallie was sure that Orsino had loved Hallie, just that he obviously loved Sebastian more. She was more or less the forgotten sibling at that point. But now she was the only sibling, she guessed.

"I miss everyone being at home... just everything is different," she had to say it. It had to be said. Sooner or later it was going to have to be said.

Sebastian nodded carefully at that. He could... definitely agree. Sure, part of it was missing Orsino dearly - about wanting him back more than a little desperately... But there was a certain, different desire to be with his family again. He could not ignore that there was a certain sense of jealousy that stirred in his gut when he saw the Arcadias together. Sure, they were a little odd and they weren't what someone might define as perfect, but they were nice enough. He liked them... but that didn't mean that he couldn't feel jealous. In fact, it made him more likely to be... Even if he felt a little guilty about that too.

But, then again, there were a lot of things that Sebastian felt guilty about as of late.

"I miss being home but..." He thought about Bolt helping him get back to that house - he had seen what they had said. Their decision, guilty now or not, had been final. He was as good as a stranger to them, probably. "I don't think they'll let me be around any time soon." If ever again... "Actually..." He shifted, taking something out of his back pocket.

"Here." He untangled it carefully before holding it out to her. "It was... it was his. I got it for him awhile ago because... you know, his thing with puzzles." That Sebastian helped fuel almost a bit too much, judging by how he sometimes got quite feminine things for him on the sole fact that they were, well, puzzles. "I took most of his things that I could." Rather, snuck in at night and stole them over the period of a few days... But Hallie did not need to know that little detail. "You should have something of his even if..." Even if Orsino never did mention her... which maybe was good for her. As it was, he wasn't dealing well with the aftermath of his death because of those confessions he had made. He could not imagine more people being broken open like this.

Hallie nodded, understanding that Seb wasn't going to try to go home. Not now. If things had been even a little different, surely he would have been allowed home. But it wasn't, and Hallie had lost both of her brothers in a matter of weeks. Things changed all the time, Hallie knew that because of her childhood when she was younger, spending time in a group home before being adopted. It was a hard childhood, and things had changed quickly then. But now, Hallie hadn't imagined things could change so fast again.

Acrophobia- Fear of heights.

She bit the inside of her cheek as Seb shifted and held something out. Hallie looked at it, recognizing it as one of Orsino's puzzles. Hallie just nodding at Seb, knowing that Orsino had liked puzzles and all. Hallie just stared at Seb, unable to think of what to say.

Hallie was just the over looked little sister. She understood that. But Hallie knew that it said something that Seb was giving her one of Orsino's things. They had had a different relationship than Hallie had had with either of her brothers. It was special and probably something beyond what Hallie wanted to know about.

She took a breath and looked at her puzzle locket again. "Are you sure?" she looked at him questionably. Hallie was sure that he wouldn't have offered if he didn't mean it. But it was something in itself of giving up a little thing of Orsino, even if it was to Hallie. And she knew that.

He saw the hesitation and... the question. It made sense, for he was so clinging to all the things that did remind him of Orsino. He even claimed the name that was not really his, even if it may well have been if Orsino had made it out alive... If Sebastian had gotten the chance to accept that proposal of marriage at all. Or, for that matter, return the words - all the words that still flooded and repeated over and over again in his mind. All the thoughts and feelings - always returned, but never spoken out of fear of... of... what? Rejection?

Somehow, Sebastian knew he could have - would have dealt with rejection better than he was dealing with this now.

In the spirit of this, he took one of Hallie's hands in both of his and pressed the locket into hers. "I have a lot of regrets." His voice was dangerously quiet again... Not in the way of anger, but in the way of sadness. "Even if he hadn't said half of what he did about me - to me... This would be the same." He cared about him so much - and maybe saying as much would have kept Orsino here, would have kept him alive for just a few more years, would have kept him away from his fate in the arena.

"I don't know if he had some regrets." Did he regret not talking to Hallie? Did he regret not hearing what Sebastian said? Did he regret never acting on these feelings. "But whether he did or not, he would have wanted you to have something. For his sake alone, I can't deny you it. I don't deserve his love as it is. I don't deserve everything of him either. You should have some of him too." He pulled his hands away from her hand, leaving the locket where it was before facing away from her, shifting where he was sitting so his knees were to his chest and his arms wrapped loosely around them.

Aerophobia- Fear of drafts, air swallowing, or airbourne noxious substances.

Hallie stared at Seb as he pressed the locket into her hands. Tears filled her eyes, but she refused to let them spill. She may of never been as close to her brothers as they were to each other, but they were family. And they all had regrets. Everyone had regrets, at least Hallie thought everyone should.

Even if he was right, about Orsino would have wanting Hallie to have something. She didn't feel like she deserved it. In Hallie's eyes she was the one who didn't deserve the puzzle or anything. She wasn't really the one Orsino loved, it had been Sebastian. He should have had all the things, but even then, Hallie still wanted a piece of her brother.

"Do you think things would have been different if he had won?" She looked at Seb as he moved away. Hallied moved the puzzle in her hands, not wanting to look down at it yet. "If things would have worked out and all... if things would have been better and all that."

Sebastian felt his fingers go to his wrist and Arrow seemed to move back a bit closer to him, nuzzling into one of his legs as his fingers played with the wristbands. One his own - the other Orsino's. He only barely managed to get a hold of it since it had come home with the girl from Six - not with Orsino... And he remembered so hoping that he would not be the one to wear it for long.

Not that that wish ever came true.

"I don't know." They had kicked him out during the sixth day - before they even knew Orsino's death when he could well have come home. He knew that she was asking about that - because it was without saying that he would be with Orsino somehow if he had lived. But would they still somehow be a family?

He pulled Arrow into his lap, petting him. "Arrow reminds me of him, you know. When they first brought him home... He's usually shy and scares easily, but is curious like that, like him." Arrow... well, at least Arrow made more noise than Orsino had then. Hallie would probably remember if only because it seemed like he could have been an avox with how little he spoke then.

Hallie held back her frown the best she could, it only turning into a half frown at most. She wanted to hug her brother and just say everything would be fine. But it wouldn't not for a long time. She had realized that even if her parents had kicked Sebastian out, and Orsino had won, they really wouldn't have been that much of a family anymore. Orsino and Sebastian were both eighteen and could do whatever they wanted, and would have had the money and house to do whatever with.

It only made Hallie wonder if she would still have been left alone with their parents and if they would be acting how they were. If she'd still be rebelling because of her brothers. She figured that her parents would get use to her rebellion soon and she didn't want to push it much farther.

Hallie had to smile a little, that a dog could remind her brother of Orsino. But it wasn't too weird for Hallie. She just nodded slightly: "It's funny how much animals can remind us of the people we lose..." Hallie pointed out. "I bet he would have liked Arrow. They probably would have gotten along since they were both kind of quiet and all, right?" Hallie looked at Sebastian.

Aeroacrophobia- Fear of open high places.
