"Is my chest really… bigger?" Eddie wondered. He couldn't really tell. Now that he thought about it, there seemed to be more heft there, but it could be his imagination. But the increased sensitivity, that wasn't just his imagination. It almost hurt, but as soon as he had that thought, his beloved pushed against his chest, kneading him just right to ease away that painful ache.
Yes. Bigger, it confirmed. Softer, too.
"Ugh," Eddie groaned, covering his face with his arm. He'd probably gained some baby weight, between the hormones and the increase in appetite. He had no doubt he'd be able to melt it off again, but it was still a little embarrassing.
Not embarrassing, his lover objected, nudging at the soft extra bits of flesh padding his hips, his belly, and his pecs. Beautiful, Eddie.

Rokia grew up in District Six, where "Stay Alive" is good advice well before the Arena. When she's Reaped for the 71st Games, she counts on good instincts to keep her alive for the people at home who need her. Her mentor, Phillips, knows better than to hope, but she catches him hard from the start.
But for Victors in Panem, the Games are just the beginning.

When the Arena falls and Brutus dies, Lyme leaves for District 13. It's soon clear that Alma Coin is less than perfect, but with her best friend dead and no other options, Lyme vows to make the best of her decision. Meanwhile, Brutus' youngest Victor joins President Snow in the Capitol to be the symbol of loyalty and the voice of her people as District 2 prepares for war.
The twist: when Brutus fell, the hovercraft team who retrieved his corpse fought to resuscitate him, refusing to stand by and watch their hero die. A second rebellion — split off from District 13, fearing that Alma Coin had gone too far — saw their opportunity to gather fighters and a potentially valuable symbol, and recruit them to fight against both the Capitol and District 13.
The Victors of District 2 are now split along five fronts: Enobaria in custody in the Capitol; Lyme and Claudius in District 13; Petra, Ronan and Odin in the Capitol; Brutus and the Peacekeepers who turned traitor to save him in District 8; and the rest at home in District 2, mourning and waiting and fearing whatever is to come.
Some things will change, some will not, but one thing is true: District 2's Victors have the chance to make it out alive.

The rebellion fails. The wrong person finds out about the Arena plan and it all falls apart: Plutarch Heavensbee and the mentors are arrested, President Coin cuts her losses and retreats to District 13 to plot another day, and the victor-tributes in the Arena are on their own. No lightning, no forcefield, no rescue.
Not that Brutus knows any of this, of course. He's too busy trying not to die.
