Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: "She is the avenging messenger of ''all the drowned ghosts'', all the lost children of Panem."

Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDarK: "Once you've taken your friends to a watery grave, what will be left of ''you'', Annie Cresta?"


** More subtly, though ultimately more important to the plot, Lorelai's obsessive training to prepare Annie for the Games, and making Annie responsible for caring for her during her worse PTSD episodes from a young age, can easily be considered a form of emotional abuse.



* AmbiguousDisorder: Averted; it doesn't come up in the fic itself because Panem [[ThereAreNoTherapists has no therapists]], the in-universe language used is "strange" or "mad" for Annie and "damaged" for Finnick, but author's notes confirm them to have schizophrenia and PTSD, respectively. A case could be made for Lorelai Cresta, however, a previous victor whose games seem to have traumatised her to the point where she is almost completely unable to care for herself, relying on her teenage daughter to keep her somewhat stable.

* DeadPersonConversation: Luka lives on as a voice in Annie's head.



* GirlyBruiser: Annie wears lacy dresses and makes jewellery. She's also an action girl career tribute who doesn't seem to see the hunger games as a real challenge.

* GoOutWithASmile: Ajax



* KnifeNut: We haven't seen it in practice yet, but Annie's self-assessment of her chances in the games mentions that she's "good with knives".

* KillingInSelfDefense: Annie to Adora
* KnifeNut: We haven't seen it in practice yet, but Annie's self-assessment of her chances in the games mentions that she's "good with knives".


Added DiffLines:

* OlympicSwimmer: Annie is a very skilled swimmer, able to easily swim with a flood that she was directly at the source of, though unlike many examples of the trope this stems from practice and overall athletic ability rather than simply being amazing with no effort.


Added DiffLines:

* PsychoPsychologist: Lunaria Etumbe is a capitol psychiatrist who works with victors after their games; based on her interactions with Annie, this mostly means molesting them and trying to convince them that being forced to murder children wasn't actually traumatic at all.
* SexSlave: The fate of most victors after the games, Annie included.
* SlaveToPR: Annie feels like this is a central part of being a tribute or victor, and decides that she is having none of it.


Added DiffLines:

* TraumaticHaircut: Annie undergoes one before her games, which serves to show the control the capitol has over the tributes' and victors' public identities.


* AbusiveParents: Adora casually relates that the scar on her face comes from her father, though Annie notes that she doesn't seem particularly upset by this and wonders if Adora was lying so that she looks more sympathetic to the capitol.



* AerithAndBob: Annie, Luka, and Mags exist in the same world as Finnick, Adora, and Topaz.



** BreakTheBadass: Annie is a career tribute coming to understand the reality of Panem and of the games.
* BurialAtSea: A district four tradition that Annie tries to do for Luka in the arena.



* ChildByRape: Possibly Annie; her mother was a previous games victor and in all likelihood would have been sold as a SexSlave by Snow.

to:

* ChildByRape: Possibly Annie; her mother was a previous games victor and in all likelihood would have been sold as a SexSlave "sold" by Snow.



* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Poor Luka. And Adora.



* DoomedByCanon: All the 70th games tributes except Annie have to die for her to have the story she does in Hunger Games canon.



* EyeScream: See 'Flying Seafood Special', below. It's an illusion, but the idea is somewhat squicky in itself.

* EyeScream: See 'Flying Seafood Special', below. It's an illusion, but the idea is somewhat squicky in itself. Later, Annie kills Adora by squishing her eyeballs in before stabbing her.


Added DiffLines:

* GirlyBruiser: Annie wears lacy dresses and makes jewellery. She's also an action girl career tribute who doesn't seem to see the hunger games as a real challenge.


Added DiffLines:

* MoralityAdjustment: A big part of Annie's character development; chapter three ends with her deciding to not be the perfect tribute the capitol wanted her to be anymore, and that she "belongs only to herself".
* MummiesAtTheDinnerTable: Annie keeps Luka's severed head with her.


Added DiffLines:

* OffWithHisHead: Poor, poor Luka.


Added DiffLines:

* TogetherInDeath: Ajax and Topaz volunteered for the games together, knowing that likely neither of them would win, because neither wanted to be left living without the other.


Added DiffLines:

* RapeAsBackstory: Like in canon, Finnick has been a SexSlave for the capitol since he won his own games. When he was ''fourteen''.


* ActionGirl: Annie scores a 10 (out of a possible 12) during training for the games. Presumably though, this trope applies to all female career tributes, and at least some of the non-career ones.



* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: Coral Brigham "all but threatens" Annie into saying she'll protect Luka in the arena.



* ChildrenForcedToKill: By definition; it's Literature/TheHungerGames.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Can be inferred for career tributes like Annie and Ajax.
* ContrivedCoincidence: A victor's daughter being reaped for the games herself.
* CoveredInScars: Orca.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Annie is a very observant girl, for all her strange mannerisms, difficulty expressing herself, and reputation as "mad".
* {{Determinator}}: Annie views it as an established fact that she'll survive the games, before she ever enters the arena.



* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: Annie's fish. They talk as well, but only to her.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Somewhat dark version with Annie. Or more accurately, to all non-human oceanic living things; Annie is described as befriending seagulls and starfish, but has a fairly logical, detached view of being forced into a tournament that will require her to kill people.
* {{Hallucinations}} and HearingVoices: Annie.

people, likely as a result of her upbringing as a career tribute.
* {{Hallucinations}} GreenEyes: Most citizens of District Four; specifically, "sea-green".
* {{Hallucinations}}: Annie; mostly visual, though she has also alluded to hearing voices.
* {{Jerkass}}: Ajax Titinius' creepy, objectifying comments about Finnick,
and HearingVoices: Annie.Annie's view of him as "pretending to make friendly conversation while he searches for her weakness" suggest him to be this. However, he is also a tribute, and one that seems quite naive as to the reality of the games, so he's arguably as much a victim of the Capitol as they are, not that it necessarily makes him any more sympathetic.



* MeaningfulName: Aside from the ones in canon (Finnick, Cresta); Lorelai was a woman in German mythology who drowns herself in a river, and many of District 4's residents have oceanic names eg Coral and Orca.
* NervousWreck: Lorelai manages to go from scolding Annie for getting distracted too easily to having a breakdown about her own hunger games over the course of one sentence. Of course, Lorelai is presented as being unstable at the best of times.



* TheOphelia: Played with a little with Annie. She has hallucinations, atypical speech patterns, a somewhat limited attention span, and a fondness for starfish, seashells and torn frilly dresses, and she's quite pretty in a dishevelled sort of way, but she is also very emotionally insightful, quick thinking and surprisingly coherent, and sometimes mocks the way people assume she is before they know better.
* OriginalCharacter: Several secondary characters, mostly from around district 4, including Annie's partner in the games, Luka.
* StepfordSmiler: Annie describes Finnick as "beautiful and lost, with ghosts in his eyes and a smile that looks out of place on his too-perfect face". She's probably right.
* {{Transsexual}}: Annie is a trans woman, and was once called Ayden.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Annie, though she walks the line between quirky and genuinely insane. Mostly she comes off as living in her own world, 'not quite right' mentally, but basically functional if you can keep up with her strange logic.
