I was tagged by StoryRPArt to do a fact thingy, but I forgot to copypaste the whole thing and I'm lazy, so I just got the questions. The point of this thing is to answer the questions they gave in their journal, and then I'm supposed to come up with my own questions but omg my brain function is low due to exhaustion, so feel free to just...reuse these questions. if you want to. I'm not tagging anyone, but if you feel so inclined, just do it. Do the Dew.

1. What's currently your favorite song and why?

Probably...Blank Space by TSwift or Ready to Run by One Direction. I'm completely unashamed. I live for pop music.

2. Top three favorite words?

Rubbish. Pants. Chaos.

3. If there was one fictional universe you would rewrite, which one would it be and why?

Rewrite? Good lord, I don't think any fictional universes I love could be rewritten- oh, you know what? Actually I'd rewrite The Deathly Hallows and make sure both Weasley twins made it out alive ok. No dying on me. No dying on each other. No dying.

4. Which art piece are you most proud of right now?

Um, idk if I'm proud of any at the moment. I'm trying really hard to be positive about my work, but it's not easy lately.

5. What made you start drawing/writing/painting/etc.?

After reading the Lord of the Rings and seeing the movies, I was inspired. I always hated writing before because I felt like it was so much work, but the Lord of the Rings taught me that writing is imagination and inspiring and beautiful, and I don't have to be afraid to do whatever I want. Thank you Tolkien.

6. If there's a project you have started on/want to start on, whether artistic or some big community thing, what is it and what gave you the idea for it?

I have been trying to complete and publish a novel for like. three years now. Every time I think I'm close, I hate something about it and can't continue. I'm my own worst enemy.

7. Your favorite kind of gift?

Food. Literally, just buy me a meal, people.

8. What's your favorite season and why?

SPRING BECAUSE THUNDERSTORMS AND RAIN AND STUFF. UGHHH SPRING. I mean the mud sucks but hey, mud happens.

9. Your favorite OC that you've created? Why?


Ummmmmmmmmm. Goodness, I have so many tho. Probably my Harry Potter OC Curtis Hodgkiss. He's a Gryffindor and he's got a lot of things that happen throughout his life that I've gotten to write out and RP with friends that made me really close to him. He always comes out on top, though, thanks to the love of his life.

10. Your favorite memory?

I'm not really sure LOL so, that's awkward.

I love cosplaying, but I haven't done it in two years. I really miss it and want to return to it. Probably will try to next year.

I'm currently in school. Graduating with an associates degree this year.

And I'm trying to finish a novel and get published. So, there's me.

The Unknown Weasley by HopefulCloud
The Unknown Weasley
So, I recently decided to become a ginger. It's been a great experience thus far. I've been told I look like a Weasley, and yes. I'm happy with this. I'm probs gonna keep my hair like this for a good long while. i'm quite happy with it.

Morke had worked tirelessly to try and memorize and properly identify various types of plants. It had been hard work, but Morke was smart. She honestly surprised herself with her ability to remember things, but technically she’d always been kinda smart. She’d never known it, because her family constantly told her she was stupid, but whatever. She’d show them up now.

She spent most of her training in front of a screen trying to learn everything she possibly could. The first week was difficult, and she became so frustrated at all of her wrong answers at one point that she picked up the nearest chair and nearly threw it at the screen, but she was promptly stopped and told to take a break by the individual that was overseeing their training.

Regardless of her mistakes, she actually retained some of the information on identifying poisonous berries and that night, in the penthouse apartment, she wrote down as much as she could remember. She knew she had to learn it all, and she had to keep learning. Survival was key.

The next week she also spent trying to learn as much as she could about good plants, bad plants, and edible ones. It wasn’t easy, and sometimes she felt like her brain was going to explode with all the information she was trying to retain, but at the same time she knew she had to do her best. If she got killed by eating the wrong type of berry, then she was definitely not going to be happy. That wasn’t how she wanted to go. And from watching the other tributes, she saw quite a few of them focusing on fighting techniques. She wasn’t going to waste her time on that, because she knew she wouldn’t be able to learn how to do things like that as well as the Careers, and she was not going to be afraid of killing anyone with her mediocre skills.

The third week came around and she decided that she had learned everything she could about plants, and decided to work on some hand-to-hand close combat. She wanted to be able to defend herself if she was thrust into a situation where she had to be close to fight another tribute. She was pleased that her rather sturdy lower half was able to keep her well balanced and grounded, and although she was rather clumsy in her fighting skills, she felt that she’d learned to defend herself a bit, at least. Maybe enough to fight off an attacking tribute as long as they were weaker than her.

But now that it was all over, the training long behind, she was going to have to show her talents. She’d been mulling over what to do, how to impress the judges, but she wasn’t sure she had anything to impress them with. She could use a knife to cut dummies up, but surely that wasn’t too impressive. She could talk to them about how she could tell the difference between a Bittersweet berry and Pokeweed berry, but how would that be interesting? And she knew her hand-to-hand combat was nothing impressive, so...what? What would she do?

She sat quietly, wringing her hands as all the tributes went in before her. She hated watching the Careers with their smug faces as they walked in so confidently to receive their high scores. It wasn’t fair- they were born and bred for this sort of thing.

When her turn came around she stood and she felt the muscles in her legs tense up so quickly that she thought she might just keel over. She took a moment, took a deep breath, and finally walked inside.

She looked up and saw the judges and she was sure they were all eating. They looked to be much more interesting in the food on their plates than in her sudden appearance in the training room. How could she possibly draw their attention now?

She looked around the room and then spotted the plant identification area. There were berries and plants there to be properly identified, and she wondered how many people had used those things in order to impress. Surely they would not. And yet she approached.

She noticed that there were good berries here and the poisonous ones. She was proud of herself for being able to tell the difference, especially since some of them looked quite similar, and she could only bet that the judges sitting up there eating couldn’t tell the difference. She smirked a bit at the prospect. But how could she use her knowledge to impress them? They were already so bored.

She picked up two similar looking berries and then she turned to look up at the judges. “I can see that you’re all quite hungry, and definitely don’t have time to pay attention to someone like me, but I’d like you to see something,” she held up two similar berries, one being Baneberry and the other being Buffalo berry. They were both about the same size and color, but one could kill you and the other was harmless, albeit usually sour. “It looks like I’m holding up the same type of berry, but this is not so. This is a trap that most won’t be able to identify.”

She felt like she had captured the judges interest, if only a little, and then she turned and went back to the station and began sorting all the berries by inedible and edible. Once she’d done that, she turned to look back at the judges and she gestured to the left side of the set up she’d created.

“These berries are my trap for starving tributes. I can tell you them by name: Pokeweed, Nightshade, Baneberry, Bittersweet, and Woodbine. Eating just one of these berries might only cause diarrhea and discomfort, but if I gave enough of these to one tribute- Well, it’d cause their death. How many tributes have shown you their fighting prowess while ignoring the simple skills of survival? With this ability to identify berries, I think I have an advantage,” Morke said confidently as she lifted her chin.

Then she picked up one of the edible berries and she looked at them with determination. “I've made allies in this Game, and I'm not afraid to feed them these berries in order to get ahead. I have to do what it takes in order to be the victor, right? And I'm going to be the victor,” then she tossed her braid over her shoulder and then popped the edible berry into her mouth and turned to leave. She felt that she had left an impression, and hopefully it was a good one.

She didn’t really care once she’d left the training room, though. She was just honestly glad it was all over. And she was glad she hadn’t eaten the wrong berry by mistake. With her nerves, she was surprised she hadn’t picked up a baneberry instead.

She smiled a bit to herself, however, and removed her little trinket from home out of her shirt where she kept it hidden. It was a little note that said ‘I love you mommy’ that was scrawled in a child’s handwriting, although Tox had helped him move the pencil in order to form the words properly. She missed them. She even missed Tox.

She quickly slipped it back into her shirt, resting it near her heart, and took a deep breath. The Hunger Games was soon. It would all be over soon.
Final Training Entry: Morke Hurd
:iconthehungergamesoct:

Morke used her skills with plant identification in order to /hopefully/ catch the eyes of the judges. I'm not very hopeful, but it's what she felt most confident in LOL she felt like it'd be dumb to throw a dummy around, or whatever, so berries it is. Woooo.

And that's it. We'll see what happens.
