Night Before the GamesAlec was sitting on his bed, but he couldn't sleep. He'd run into his bathroom twice because he thought he was going to vomit, but each time he settled down and realized it was just nerves. He was on edge, and he hated it. He wasn't supposed to be afraid. He'd been strong through each of these dumbass trials and now here he was shaking in his boots. Fuck that. He walked out of the room and slammed his door behind him and then knocked on the door to Tony's room. "Tony, are you awake? Tell Tyler I'm gonna be on the roof." he turned and walked out of the penthouse and got into the elevator to head up to the roof.
Tony paced back and forth in his room, his eyes glued to his feet. For the first hour or so after his interview, he'd felt relieved, almost excited. And then it hit him. Tomorrow the Games started. Tomorrow he could die. Or Alec. That's when he started shaking and felt dizzy, the world running in circles around him. He'd tried to keep the feeling in and force it away, but it just
If I hear your voice I'll be fineThis was it, the little boy thought as he sat down on the train and looked out the window. He smiled a bit as he saw his mother, father, and baby sister all waving at him. This was his first act of independence. He was going to Hogwarts and he was going to become the best wizard in the world. Well, that was the plan, anyway. He couldn’t imagine being any less than the best, especially since his father was a very skilled wizard that worked in Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic. He had to live up to that.
He swung his feet back and forth as he sat there. He squirmed in his seat and gripped the edge of the bench. He was a little nervous, but he was more excited than anything. Still, sitting here alone with his thoughts and knowing soon the train would be moving away from the platform made his stomach churn a little. He’d never been far away from home for very long. He knew he’d have his older cousins there, though, so that was a little relief.
“Excuse me, can
Valentine's Day PlansAsh knew he had to get ready for the big day. Valentine’s Day was sort of a big deal for him and his girlfriend, and he wanted to make sure they celebrated it right. He liked to surprise her and treat her to as nice of a dinner as he could get for her, and he knew it often wasn’t much, but she always appreciated it. He loved that about her.
He arrived at her front door and knocked. He smiled as her father answered, and Ash was quite close to her whole family, so he wasn’t nervous about him being the one to answer the door. “Hi, is Hazel ready?” He asked.
“Almost. Come in.” Hazel’s father said as he stepped aside and Ash walked in and looked around. The house was sort of small, like his own home, but it was cozy. He waited a minute or two, but then Hazel walked out. Her beautiful light blonde hair was in a braided crown around her head, and she wore a lovely brown dress that had obviously been made recently. She had probably made it hersel
HGOCT: Training FinalAlec waited his turn and he stretched his arms above his head. He was anxious to go inside, but he wasn’t really nervous or anything. He had nothing planned, other than showing the one skill he’d really gained during training, but that certainly wasn’t going to be all he’d do. He had to prove he was worth watching, and as unpredictable as he wanted to be. Hopefully that would get him a good score, but he didn’t really care as long as he made his point clear. Whatever that point was.
He stood up when he was called in and he smirked as he approached and looked around the familiar training room. He looked up and saw the judges, all pompous and absurd looking. These were the people he had to impress. Marvelous.
“I’m Alec Watt of District 9.” He introduced himself. He turned and began approaching the climbing wall, but then he stopped and turned back to look at them. “I know you’re looking for a tribute that’s gonna really im
HGOCT Training: Week 3 Here he was again. He was tired from all that work he'd been doing honestly, but he was ready to go at it again. He'd never put so much effort into anything, other than reading maybe. Still, he couldn't exactly stop giving at least half effort. He'd die if that happened, and as the days went by he started disliking the idea of dying more and more. So, he decided he was going to have to try climbing again. He needed to be good at it, and he needed to be able to get away from these psychos that could wield spears and swords and bows. He had been watching, so he was no fool in that sense. He knew the Careers were going to be the death of him if he couldn't get away from them. Yeah, maybe he should have learned to wield something, but he figured that no matter how talented he became with some weapon, he'd never be as talented as those who were well practiced and had been working much harder at being a victor than he.
Alec made his way to the climbing wall and then began ascendi
Fools Live Quiet LivesIt was bright outside, the warm sun was shining down on the cobblestone paved roads and the very elegant looking homes. He strolled down the street, glancing around. His back was rigidly straight, his hair tied back in a ponytail, no hair out of place, and his face a mask of seriousness. He wore the uniform that signified he was one of the Military Police, so it earned him respect from passersby as they nodded to him. He was one of the captains too, but he definitely was not one to brag. He hated his work.
All of it was the same. Waking in the morning, going for walks around his route to make sure things were fine, ensuring those under his command were not fools and were behaving themselves despite being so comfortable and safe within Wall Sina. They were so easy going, and he hated them. They weren’t interesting, and his life here was completely dull. He didn’t feel like he was making a difference at all, especially during these times when Titans had apparently been spotte
HGOCT Training Week 2Alec looked around as he walked in. It was fairly quiet, but everyone seemed to be concentrating. He rolled his eyes and headed over to the fire starting station. He knew he should probably learn this, because he had no idea what kind of weather they'd be experiencing in the Arena, and he figured it might be a useful tool to keep fire around.
Of course, Alec was very untalented with the fire starting and burned himself nearly immediately after managing to spark a little flame. "Fuck!" He shouted at the flame, to which it just blew out. He glared at the pile of dry leaves and such and then he huffed as he was informed he should wash the burn with cold water before working anymore. He got up and walked towards the bathrooms, grumbling under his breath, and then as he was about to head in he saw that kid, Bishop, and pestered him for a few moments with questions about how he was doing and if he had any allies. Of course, as usual, Bishop was no fun to play with. He rolled his eyes and wen
