She awaited his response, silent and hopeful, her bonfire pelt muted in temporary sobriety. "Maybe one day," Galadriel replied. The earthen male, shadow and cream, honey and loam, took a step back, his haunches pressed against the bars of the sunflower prison. "But we are not friends, not now." His words were deliberate, his gaze diverted. Another wolf might have taken offense - might have been hurt by the automatic refusal. But Embryn only smiled, open mouthed and tongue lolling. He was being careful, meticulous, and she could not fault him for that. "One day, then," she readily agreed, her tail waving as much as the close confines of the sunflower forest allowed.

She twisted, stepping away, her body curving around the stiff stems of the overhead flowers. It accorded her some distance without hiding her from immediate view, allowed the male a modicum of breathing room. The bars bent to accommodate her weight, greenery arching to shadow her vulpine pelt. "We'll work on it for next time," she offered, mischief sparking quietly within her gaze. The male's stoic demeanor did not bother her; she was not perturbed by his reticence, was not offended by his sparse words or precious impressions. She did not question, she merely accepted; amber and gold mixed, diluted, strains of yellow coming to a wordless understanding.

The petals danced around them, and Embryn tilted her head. "Are you always this quiet?" she asked all of a sudden, her voice neither judgemental nor disproving, merely curious. She smiled, her expression artfully innocent, her eyes soft. "Not that I mind, you understand. Just tryin' to get a feel for what to expect." She was the flickering flame, mischief incarnate; an errant wind might set the entire field ablaze.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

President Snow goes on to tell us what happened in the previous Quarter Quells. “On the twenty-fifth anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that their children were dying because of their choice to initiate violence, every district was made to hold an election and vote on the tributes who would represent it.”
I wonder how that would have felt. Picking the kids who had to go. It is worse, I think, to be turned over by your own neighbours than have your name drawn from the reaping ball.
“On the fiftieth anniversary,” the president continues, “as a reminder that two rebels died for each Capitol citizen, every district was required to send twice as many tributes.”
I imagine facing a field of forty-seven instead of twenty-three. Worse odds, less hope, and ultimately more dead kids. That was the year Haymitch won . . .
“I had a friend who went that year,” says my mother quietly. “Maysilee Donner. Her parents owned the sweetshop. They gave me her songbird afterwards. A canary.”
“And now we honour our third Quarter Quell,” says the president. The little boy in white steps forward, holding out the box as he opens the lid. We can see the tidy, upright rows of yellowed envelopes. Whoever devised the Quarter Quell system had prepared for centuries of Hunger Games. The president removes an envelope clearly marked with a 75. He runs his finger under the flap and pulls out a small square of paper. Without hesitation, he reads, “On the seventy-fifth anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that even the strongest among them cannot overcome the power of the Capitol, the male and female tributes will be reaped from their existing pool of victors.”
My mother gives a faint shriek and Prim buries her face in her hands, but I feel more like the people I see in the crowd on television. Slightly baffled. What does it mean? Existing pool of victors?
Then I get it, what it means. At least, for me. District 12 only has three existing victors to choose from. Two male. One female . . .
I am going back into the arena.

The earthen male, shadow and cream, honey and loam, took a step back, his haunches pressed against the bars of the sunflower prison. "But we are not friends, not now." His words were deliberate, his gaze diverted. Another wolf might have taken offense - might have been hurt by the automatic refusal. But Embryn only smiled, open mouthed and tongue lolling. He was being careful, meticulous, and she could not fault him for that. "One day, then," she readily agreed, her tail waving as much as the close confines of the sunflower forest allowed.

She twisted, stepping away, her body curving around the stiff stems of the overhead flowers. It accorded her some distance without hiding her from immediate view, allowed the male a modicum of breathing room. The bars bent to accommodate her weight, greenery arching to shadow her vulpine pelt. "We'll work on it for next time," she offered, mischief sparking quietly within her gaze. The male's stoic demeanor did not bother her; she was not perturbed by his reticence, was not offended by his sparse words or precious impressions. She did not question, she merely accepted; amber and gold mixed, diluted, strains of yellow coming to a wordless understanding.

The petals danced around them, and Embryn tilted her head. "Are you always this quiet?" she asked all of a sudden, her voice neither judgemental nor disproving, merely curious.

[32] But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

[33] On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

[33] On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

She awaited his response, silent and hopeful, her bonfire pelt muted in temporary sobriety. "Maybe one day," Galadriel replied. The earthen male, shadow and cream, honey and loam, took a step back, his haunches pressed against the bars of the sunflower prison. "But we are not friends, not now." His words were deliberate, his gaze diverted. Another wolf might have taken offense - might have been hurt by the automatic refusal. But Embryn only smiled, open mouthed and tongue lolling. He was being careful, meticulous, and she could not fault him for that. "One day, then," she readily agreed, her tail waving as much as the close confines of the sunflower forest allowed.

She twisted, stepping away, her body curving around the stiff stems of the overhead flowers. It accorded her some distance without hiding her from immediate view, allowed the male a modicum of breathing room. The bars bent to accommodate her weight, greenery arching to shadow her vulpine pelt. "We'll work on it for next time," she offered, mischief sparking quietly within her gaze. The male's stoic demeanor did not bother her; she was not perturbed by his reticence, was not offended by his sparse words or precious impressions. She did not question, she merely accepted; amber and gold mixed, diluted, strains of yellow coming to a wordless understanding.

The petals danced around them, and Embryn tilted her head. "Are you always this quiet?" she asked all of a sudden, her voice neither judgemental nor disproving, merely curious. She smiled, her expression artfully innocent, her eyes soft. "Not that I mind, you understand. Just tryin' to get a feel for what to expect." She was the flickering flame, mischief incarnate; an errant wind might set the entire field ablaze.
