     Horrible Males, District 1 - 6 

Rome Gnaeus:

  • Adaptational Villainy: Maybe a little annoying, but certainly not villainous in the original.
  • Affably Evil: So much that he went for the "fun and friendly" angle during his interviews.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Even if you don't like the guy, you have to admit that being betrayed by his ally/crush and croaking out her name as he lies dying is a sad way to go.
  • All Love is Unrequited: Although he's certain that Ania will fall for him, it never happens.
  • Anti-Villain: a dark Type IV, if you squint. He spends more of his time boasting and flirting than doing anything actively malevolent, and the only time he succeeds in killing somebody in the core storyline, it’s by indirect means. Despite this, he still definitely opposes the protagonists.
  • Beta Couple: with Ania, albiet unrequited.
  • Big Bad: of the Horrible career pack, until Ania takes over.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Decides he just has to take on a giant lizard mutt by himself for the fun of it.
  • Brains and Brawn: The brawn to Ania's brains.
  • The Casanova: Apparently dates dozens of girls at once.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Against Gries in the sixth What If.
  • Dirty Business: How he seems to view killing females and the defenceless. He doesn't like it much, but feels he has to do it anyway.
  • Et tu Brute: Gets stabbed in the back by his ally, Ania.
  • Evil Duo: With Ania; she being the Superego, he being the Id.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Definitely fighting, and his introductory chapter was so darn narcissistic the author had difficulty writing it.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Ania.
  • Large Ham: "I, the great and powerful Rome!"
  • Last Kiss: Kisses Ania as she dies in the sixth What If. Since he dies not long afterwards, this would make it his last kiss as well. Slightly subverted in that it's more creepy and manipulative than romantic.
  • Love Hurts: Like a sword through the back. Literally.
  • Love Martyr: Never stops hoping Ania will reciprocate his feelings, even when it's incredibly obvious she hates his guts.
  • Laughably Evil: Definitely an antagonist, but his narcissism makes him humorous.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Surprisingly, he has a moment of this in the sixth What If when he tells Ania he'd feel a lot less guilty about killing her if she returned his affections, then exploits her desire to repay him so that she lets him kiss her.
  • Mutual Kill: With Igris in the sixth What If.
  • Nice Guy: For a career.
  • No Kill Like Overkill: Amer tears his neck to absolute shreds in the first What If.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Does absolutely nothing – until he mortally wounds Fronce.
  • Pet the Dog: Quite a few: he Took a Bullet for Ania on their first meeting, has a distaste for harming females and the defenceless (although he does it anyway) and was polite enough to carry Gries' body to where the hovercraft could get it in the sixth What If.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Ania.
  • Taking the Bullet: Shielded Ania from a hit on her first day in the Career training centre, for which she wants to repay him.
  • WTH, Costuming Department?: In-universe. Rome didn't think the fake eyelashes went too well with his 'manly' angle.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Though, to his credit, he doesn't like it much.

Vash Zerlan:

  • Accidental Murder: Possibly. The author has never confirmed if he intended to shoot Dardana at the bloodbath or was innocently testing out his crossbow.
  • Adaptational Villainy: More neutral in Hetalia.
  • The Archer: Or Crossbow-Shooter, as the case may be.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Doesn't do much talking, but fine with killing.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Dies suddenly and unceremoniously from an explosion in the early stages of the Games.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Shoots his own district partner, Dardana, in the head.
  • Evil Orphan: Hasn't had a morally-nurturing life after escaping the orphanage.
  • Freudian Excuse: Lived a miserable childhood on the streets and in orphanages before turning to the Career training program as his only option.
  • Killed Off for Real: By pinecones.
  • Lack of Empathy: has absolutely no sympathy for any of his competition, killing Dardana and Meghna without a second thought.
  • The Stoic: Devoid of emotion other than vague annoyance.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: In a way. The version of Switzerland in ‘’Horrible,’’ Switz, lasts nearly to the end of the Games, but Vash dies sooner and far more unceremoniously.
  • Trigger Happy: Is a little too eager to let loose his arrows.

Spain Carriedo:

Wiremu Sachy:

Igris Kirkland:

  • Aloof Big Brother: To Shiran.
  • Anti-Hero: A wannabe of it; Igris keeps on saying that he's okay with killing people in order to get out of the Games alive, but when it comes down to it, he doesn't actually kill and never slides beyond Type II at worst.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Both Fronce and Amer love to rib him about it. And his little brother, Shiran, also has them.
  • Chekhov's Hobby: His skill with embroidery comes in handy when he has to knit up Fronce's wounds.
  • Cool Big Bro: Aloof but caring.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: his death serves as this for Amer.
  • Deadpan Snarker: This is what makes about the majority of his banter with Amer and Fronce enjoyable in a crapsack world.
  • Defrosting Ice King: At first glance, he seems like a callous jerk- but then you see him soften up like a marshmallow-pillow.
  • Death by Adaptation: He doesn't fare too well in the What Ifs.
  • First Person Smart Ass: As a result of him being a Deadpan Snarker, his narrative is also snarky.
  • Friendless Background: due to his wealth and general Jerk Ass attitude, his only friend is Fronce and later Amer.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's very clever and smart, AND he's strong enough to subdue the Careers in battle.
  • Honor Before Reason: Despite what he says about how Anti Hero he is, he never abandons Fronce even though it would've been the more pragmatic course of action. Heck, he doesn't even kill ANIA.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: What he starts wearing during the Games- although it doesn't stop him from putting Honor before Reason.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: One of his defining characteristics. We even sympathize with him when he learn of his reason for wanting to abandon China to die alone.
  • Killed Off for Real: By poison.
  • Lethal Chef: He once brought in some home-baked cookies to share with everyone...and guess how that turned out?
  • Lonely Rich Kid: It makes it even more sad when Fronce , his first and only friend, dies.
    • Even Shiran knows of that and thanks Amer for being Igris's friend.
  • Messy Hair: Perpetually so, Games or otherwise.
  • Mutual Kill: with Ania in the first What If.
  • Not So Above it All: It's noted that even though he tried to act like a gentleman, he got too annoyed by Caesar to fully keep his composure during the interviews. Amusingly, the same fate was also shared with his fellow Tsundere, Lovi.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He is cynial and aloof, while Shiran is optimistic and friendly.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Always gratingly sarcastic, but deep down just terribly lonely and insecure.
  • Skewed Priorities: Really, Igris? You really had to move out of your hiding place to make TEA in the CHILDMURDER GAMES?!
  • Stepford Snarker: See Sour Outside Sad Inside.
  • Technical Pacifist: He has no qualms with combat; he just doesn't want to kill his defeated opponents.
  • Tsundere: A platonic version to Fronce. Even though Igris tries to make himself look all grouch and stoic, his true feelings are shown in his narrative.
  • Would Hit a Girl: has no qualms with attacking the fierce Ania in self-defense.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: with Fronce.

Fronce Foybon:

  • Accidental Murder: Neglects to tell his allies that his berry sauce is poisonous when consumed in large amounts. He is duly horrified when China eats too much one night and dies.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: when he asks Igris if he would leave him behind to die like he did China. Although Igris doesn’t let Fronce know it got to him, he clearly thinks it over before his later No One Gets Left Behind moment.)
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Igris expresses horror and grief when Fronce is severely wounded and eventually dies.
  • Bandof Brothers: With Igris and Amer.
  • Bishōnen: Not particularly well-built but quite the ladies' man.
  • The Casanova: It's unclear just how successful his flirting is in everyday life.
  • Chekhov's Hobby: He's a good cook. This comes in handy during the Hunger Games.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: an unashamed flirt, but a decent human being nonetheless.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: His death serves as this for Amer.
  • Distressed Dude: Not the fighter in his alliances.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: with Igris and Amer.
  • Hollywood Healing: zigzagged. He initially survives a sword through the stomach thanks to only stitches and disinfectant, but dies later – though not of this injury, but infection from an unnoticed wound on his neck.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: unsuccessfully begs Igris to leave him behind after he’s been severely wounded and infected.
  • Killed Off for Real: By infection.
  • The Load: To Igris and Amer, after he's been wounded.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: In a plot-relevant way, no less.
  • Meaningful Echo: After Igris abandons China to die alone, Fronce indignantly asks him if he would leave him behind in a similar situation. Igris responds that he would instead stick around to taunt him. Much later, after Fronce has been gravely injured and knocked out, he wakes up to discover Igris is carrying him on his back. The first words out of his mouth? "So you didn't leave me behind after all."
  • Mortal Wound Reveal: The infected cut behind his long hair.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After accidentally killing China.
  • Non-Action Guy: Apart from a swordfight with Igris in the training center. Justified, as he is never given a weapon, and cannot fight with his bare hands.
  • No One Gets Left Behind: Igris refuses to leave him to die, even when he’s badly injured.
  • Only Friend: To Igris, before Amer enters the picture.
  • Power Trio: With Igris and China, then Igris and Amer.
  • Prince Charming Wannabe: Treats China like a Proper Lady, but she remains unimpressed.
  • Replacement Goldfish: He and Igris could be seen as Amer’s replacement goldfish for Eston and Raivis.
  • Sacrificial Lion: One of the last characters to die.

     Horrible Males, District 7 - 12 

Eston von Bock:

  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Amer and Raivis, especially during the third What If.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He says in his intro chapter that he’s very skilled with all sorts of technology, and that he could easily start a fire with a battery and some wire. In the third What If, it’s revealed that his dream is to become talented enough to work in District 3.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Allows Amer to kill him so that Raivis can win in the third What If.
  • Hesitant Sacrifice: In a truly heartbreaking scene, he goes off by himself and cries after a coin toss decides he must die for Raivis. This doesn’t stop him from eventually making the Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Vahn.
  • Non-Action Guy: Rather scrawny, actually.
  • Megane: Has glasses and can arouse some affection.
  • Only Sane Man: Compared to the paranoid, the brain-damaged bully, and the kid with the hero complex...
  • Replacement Goldfish: Raivis’ new ‘brother’ after losing Toris two years previously.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His death definitely makes a difference for Amer... and Vahn.
  • Shoot the Dog: Amer kills him in the third What If so that Raivis can be the Victor.
  • Slashed Throat: Dies this way in the third What If.
  • The Smart Guy: In his alliance with Amer and Raivis.
  • Someone Has to Die: in the third What If, he and his allies Raivis and Amer are the final three tributes, but only one of them is allowed to survive. Amer volunteers to kill one of them and then himself. Eston loses a coin toss and dies in place of Raivis.

  • The Von Trope Family: Courtesy of his Hetalian name.

Sadik Ottoman:

  • Cool Mask: Wears one 24/7.
  • Honor Before Reason: intended to go as far as he could through the Games without killing to entertain the Capitol. His resolve caved in pretty quickly when hunger got the best of him, although he still couldn’t bring himself to kill Lovi.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He features in the Brutal epilogue before becoming a more important character in Horrible.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Amer.
  • Last Episode, New Character: In the Brutal epilogue.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: to Spain and Lovi, when he holds the latter hostage in exchange for supplies. He’s not intending to kill her, though.
  • Never Bring A Knife To A Fistfight: Sadik commences his and Amer's fist fight by pulling a knife, and promptly loses it. Guess who wins. Sort of zigzagged, though, since he wasn't trying to play dirty by taking out the knife, just warning Amer not to mess with him.
  • The Quiet One: Unless he's around Gries.
  • Sadistic Choice: Forces Spain to choose between Lovi's left and their alliance's vital supplies.
  • Shoot Him, He Has a Wallet!: Zigzagged. Sadik is killed for pulling out a knife, averting this trope, but he was doing so to dissuade, not harm, his attacker.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: with Gries. Unlike most of the rivalries in the series, it isn’t too serious and doesn’t culminate in violence in the arena.
  • Slashed Throat: Dies when Amer cuts his throat with broken glass.
  • The Stoic: Doesn't do much overreacting.

Vahn Larus:

Amer Jones:

  • America Saves the Day: Or he certainly wants to.
  • Anti-Hero: definitely wants to be a straight hero, but ends up as a type II-IV, depending on how the reader interprets him.
  • The Atoner: During the latter part of Horrible. Notable in that all his attempts to make up for what he had done wrong failed miserably, through no fault of his own.
  • Band of Brothers: First with Eston and Raivis, then Fronce and Igris, and finally Shiran.
  • Be All My Sins Remembered: Can't rebuild his self-image as hero after killing Vahn.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nice enough to swear protection over most people he meets... And horribly murder anyone in his way.
  • Berserk Button: Never hurt or threaten his friends in front of him. Ever.
  • Big Brother Instinct: To Raivis and Eston (ironic in that he's younger than both of them) as well as his own brother, Matt. Eventually extends to Shiran as well.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He rushes in to save Raivis and Eston in chapter 25.
  • The Big Guy: In both of his alliances.
  • Big Eater: One chapter opens with him whining for more food, which is apparently a habit.
  • Bonding Over Missing Parents: He bonds with Shiran over their missing friend/brother, Igris.
  • Broken Bird: He's pretty much traumatized for life by the end of the story.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Vows to save most of the people on his path.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: It's hard to pick just one for him, between the deaths of all four of his allies, his survival at the cost of Igris' life, his murder of Sadik, torturing and killing Vahn, and losing his illusion of himself as a hero. Suffice to say that he's pretty broken as of the epilogue.
  • Deadpan Snarker: On occasion, particularly later in the fic when he's allied with Fronce and Igris.
  • Death by Adaptation: As he won Horrible, he's pretty much doomed to die in every What If ending.
  • Declarationof Protection: To pretty much all his allies.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After the death of his first alliance.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The manner in which he kills Vahn.
  • Doom Magnet: Justified and lampshaded.
  • Driven to Suicide: Almost. Played nearly straight in the first ending of What If: he doesn't kill himself, but allows Gries to slit his throat. Played straight in the sixth What If.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: Platonic version; he is more than willing to die for friends he's known for only a few days.
  • Eagleland: Wants to be a Type I, but is more of a mix between the two.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: This trope is exactly what happened after he realized what he did to Vahn.
  • Face Death with Dignity: At the end of Horrible (although it winds up being Igris who dies) and in the third What If.
  • Heel Realization: After killing Vahn.
  • The Hero: In his first alliance.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Falls into this after the death of his first alliance and never really gets better, even in the four-year later epilogue.
  • Heroic Resolve: When fighting Vahn in the third What If.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He volunteers for the Hunger Games in place of his twin brother, Matt, although slightly subverted in that he doesn't die. This trope is played straight in the Third What If.
  • Heroic Suicide: Considered this near the end of Horrible so that Igris could win. He ends up going through with it in the 3rd What If.
  • Not So Different: Realizes that anything bad he says about Vahn would also apply to himself, as they have both been responsible for deaths in the Games.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Amer is outgoing, brave and excitable, while his twin brother Matt is introverted, shy and calm.
  • Power Trio: Twice: first with Raivis and Eston, then Fronce and Igris.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Eston and Igris.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He charges off to kill Vahn after Raivis’ death, ignoring the fact that he’s just left his other ally alone and defenceless. This makes everything worse.
  • Russian Roulette: Does a variation involving poison with Igris at the end of Horrible.
  • Sadistic Choice: Being forced to choose between killing himself, thereby traumatizing his brother, and killing Igris/letting him die. In the third What If, he immediately chooses to kill himself, but then has to choose between doing so right away or killing Eston first.

Sve Oxenstierna:

Raivis Lithu:

  • The Alcoholic: In "Hit the Bottle", he tries to Drown his Sorrows after winning the Games.
  • Ascended Extra: Barely mentioned in Brutal; a rather important character in the sequel. Even more important in one of the What Ifs, and the central character in the oneshot "Hit the Bottle" (which is based off that What If scenario.)
  • Band of Brothers: Part of this with Amer and Eston. Especially pronounced in the third What If.
  • Broken Bird: Sort of. His brother's death made him incredibly paranoid, and the Games did even more to scar him. However, he's not cynical in the slightest.
  • The Chick: He fulfills this role in Amer's first alliance.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: Becomes a drunkard and almost kills his father in "Hit the Bottle". Fortunately, he gets better.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's scared of nearly everything, but when it comes down to it in the third What If,he was willing to put his life on the line to give Eston a chance at going home.
  • Twice Shy: In the epilogue and follow-up to the third What If, he falls in love with Raisa, a girl just as shy as he is.

     Horrible Females, District 1 - 6 

Ania Jerume:

  • Dragon-in-Chief: she may be Rome's right-hand woman, but she lasts longer and is definitely more of a threat than he is.
  • Evil Duo: With Rome. Her being the Superego and Rome being the Id.
  • Gender Flip: Germania sure makes a scary chick…
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Averted - Ania is definitely not a hero, and she's great with swords.
  • Lack of Empathy: At first, it's played straight. Then it's unusually averted; Ania gets nightmares from all the people that she's killed.
  • More Deadly than the Male: She ends up killing more people than Rome.
  • Not So Stoic: Eventually gets nightmares from killing other tributes.
  • The Quiet One: Sadik comments on how she doesn't talk much in the interviews, and you don't see her saying much during the Games.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Ever read a passage where she's smiled?
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: Her killing of Rome has shades of this. Especially when you consider how much she snapped at him for checking her out.

Dardana Angstrom:

  • Pet the Dog: Her friendship with Corianne gives her a little more humanity than the average Career.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She wanted to volunteer to avenge Corianne’s death in the very next Games, despite the fact that she wasn’t anywhere near well-trained enough. The trainers make her wait two more years.
  • Undignified Death: What else do you call training for the Games for two years only to be shot by your own district partner in the first five minutes?
  • Villainous Friendship: Type IV with Corianne, eventually growing into Type I.

Lovi Vargas:

  • Accidental Murder: Almost. After deciding not to kill Spain, she accidentally conks him on the head with the hammer, giving him a concussion which would likely have landed him on her kill list if it wasn't for Ania.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Gets this quite a bit, particularly when she thinks she and Spain are about to be killed by cat muttations.
  • Cry Cute: Breaks down sobbing and thanking Spain for all he's done when she thinks they're about to be killed. Of course, in typical Tsundere fashion, after it's over she denies the whole thing ever happened.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Her death turns her sister Feli into a paranoid, overemotional wreck.
  • Damsel in Distress: Although she tries her hardest to deny it, she really wouldn't have gotten anywhere without Spain.
  • Et tu Brute: She is very disturbed by Spain's admission that he's killed someone before the Games, worries he will betray her, and almost stabs him in the back for it.
  • Eye Scream: Gouges out her own eye with a hammer in the first What If.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Spain, at least before everything goes downhill.
  • Ship Tease: With Spain, though it could just as easily be seen as platonic.
  • Tears of Remorse: After injuring Spain in Horrible and actually killing him in What If.
  • The Un-Favourite: Her intro chapter makes it clear that her grandfather preferred Feli to her. It's also telling that he didn't come to see her after the reapings, while apparently giving Feli advice on staying away from Careers when she was reaped.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: YMMV, but if you support the Ship Tease between her and Spain, it's definitely there.
  • Yank the Dogs Chain: After complaining of hunger for quite a while, she and Spain finally get some food donated to them... only for it to be stolen by Sadik.

Taberah Atalanta:

  • Anti-Villain: Type II (or possibly IV). She has no interest in killing people, but does so only to win the money for her ill father. Outside of the bloodbath, she never succeeds in killing anybody.
  • Token Good Teammate: Among the Horrible Careers, she volunteers for the least selfish reason and displays most remorse about killing.

Perdita Adva:

  • Tears of Fear: Said to be "sobbing too much to get a word out," [[spoiler before her death]].

China Wang:

  • Only Sane Woman: Had shades of this during Fronce and Igris' bickering, although she's likely to get in on it as well if cooking is involved.
  • Plucky Girl: Quite determined, and doesn't let anyone run the show for her. Though that eventually gets her into trouble...
  • Stay with Me Until I Die: Discussed when Igris and Fronce abandon her to die alone. Fronce is sure she would have wanted this, but Igris claims that Fronce's presence would just have made her angrier (since she died from eating too much of his unknowingly poisoned food.)
  • Yank the Dogs Chain: Sick of Igris and Fronce bossing her around, she sneaks behind their backs and eats the rations they wouldn't let her have. This turns out to have been a very, very bad idea.

     Horrible Females, District 7 - 12 

Laine Berna:

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Abnormally upbeat, especially for someone in the Hunger Games.
  • Die Laughing: Possibly, she dies amused that the spear that killed her looks like a carrot.

Gries Karpusi:

  • Brilliant but Lazy: One of the biggest minds in the Games, but spends most of her time sleeping. Although that's exactly how she wants it.
  • Common Sense: What she really specializes in.
  • The Cynic: She's pretty cynical when she kills her opponents.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Got a cameo in the Brutal epilogue before becoming an important character in the sequel.
  • Teen Genius: Sadik mentions that she's the top student in Math and Philosophy. And then, think of all her philosophizing, her common sense, and her plans for the Games...
  • Took a Level in Badass: Almost sleeps through her interview, spends most of her time hiding ... then kills a career when half-asleep!
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Sort of, kinda hinted at with Sadik. Definitely goes towards this trope in the "If NOFOJ Wasn't NOFOJ" chapter of What If.
  • Wake-Up Fighting: A bit zigzagged when she spears Taberah with her curvy-weapon-thing.
  • Warrior Poet: In between bouts of philosophy, she also manages to kill at least two people.

Natalya Larus:

  • Defiant to the End: After Vahn dies, she and Sve discuss surviving to the final two and then killing themselves so that the Capitol will have no Victor. When they are punished for this, they decide to Face Death with Dignity by deciding just when to die rather than trying to escape.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After Vahn dies. In the third What if, this is so extreme that she loses the will to feed herself and dies of dehydration.
  • Determinator: say what you want about her, but there’s something to be said for scouring an entire mountain for your brother over two days on the sustenance of nothing but an apple.
  • Face Death with Dignity: rather than trying to escape the fire the Gamemakers set after them, she and Sve jump into it holding hands as a final act of defiance.
  • Lighter and Softer: her portrayal here, as opposed to the portrayal of Belarus in many other fanworks, including the author’s other Hetalia fic, The Rules. Her canon Yandere and Knife Nut tendencies are often taken Up to Eleven in fanworks; here, the worst thing she does is stalk Vahn and try to break down his door, never killing or even harming another tribute.
  • Not Blood Siblings: with Vahn, although it’s not used to justify the squickiness of their relationship.

Meghna Cinge:

Finni Vaina:

  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Sve. When she dies, he feels he has no purpose left in life.
  • The Load: To Sve and the Horrible Career pack.
  • Love Cannot Overcome: Played tragically straight – all of Sve's devotion is not enough to overcome her fear of him and the Careers.
  • Official Couple: She and Sve are this for Horrible, though not for the series overall.

Celladora Talith:

  • Accidental Murder: Vahn wasn't entirely intending to kill her with that pickaxe.
  • Doomed by Canon: In The Hunger Games, District 12 has only ever had four victors (three in the canon series, one established by Journey's other fics), so you pretty much know she's going to die.
