Most Heart-Wrenching Poem
Sea Green Eyes by Monopedius Brevitius [Riah]
He loves a girl that’s crazy,/ She loves a boy that is mad,/Both in different worlds so strange,There’s never been a love-story so sad.
Most Likely to Make You Dissolve into a Puddle of Tears
A Rue Blooming on the Battlefield by Alex M. Stache
She continues to brush my hair, and I close my eyes. Those moments when I was younger, before I had the responsibilities of my other siblings, rained down on me. My mother brushing my hair as I fluttered my eyes closed. It was like I was a baby. The lullaby she sang while I was being drawn into sleep. Her dark eyes stared at me, nestling me down. I was happy.
Best Pre-Katniss Story
Silence by Hayley Rue Mockingjay
It wasn’t my first reaping, but this year was guaranteed to be the worst yet. The previous year, my brother, Jonah, was sent to the arena like a lamb to the slaughter. He didn’t make it out of the bloodbath at the Cornocopia. He was just thirteen, having celebrated his birthday several weeks before the reaping. The odds were certainly not in his favour. They never are for tributes of District 10.
Most Satisfying Peetnis Story
Mellarks After Mockingjay by Im Just Liz 🙂
After the defeat of the Capitol I finally allowed myself to love Peeta. I was sort of obliged to for a couple reasons. For one, he would not let me do anything otherwise, secondly, after Prim’s death I had not had really anything else to love, and finally, I figured out that I do love Peeta. He complements me, he has tenacity like me, but he has the gift of melting my rage.
Best Ode to Seneca Crane’s Beard
Gamemaker by Alexandra Edwardson
My name is Seneca Crane. I have been the Head Gamemaker for four years now. I expect to do the same for a fifth. But with President Snow’s odd behavior towards me, I can’t be sure what’s in my future.
