    Summary

    “I was joking about Kaz marrying you,” Inej says slowly. “But what if it’s not such a bad idea?”

    “What? No. I am not marrying Kaz!”

    “Not him,” Inej says. “Someone else. Have we ever mentioned Matthias Helvar to you?”

    “Matthias who?”

    “I’ll take that as a no. He’s another one of Kaz’s… contacts. Norwegian. We helped him get out of jail a year ago, and he owes us a big favor. If he married you, he might – ”

    “If he what? He was in jail?” Nina is aghast. “So he’s a criminal?”

    “You know,” Inej says, bone-dry. “We’re all criminals.”

    “Yes, but if he was in jail, that means he got caught, and that means he’s a stupid criminal. I could marry a criminal, but I draw the line at a stupid criminal.”

    Summary

    Tributes, victors, mentors, people who love them. Their lives, their deaths; who remembers, who doesn't.

    Character exploration, missing scenes and backstory for canon and original characters: how the District 2 Career Centre makes its tributes, how they win their Games and how their mentors put them back together. How some rebel, some don't and some never get the chance.

    We grew up in golden light
    Every chance to get it right
    What did we do with it?

    It’s gone, what I had back then is gone
    Can’t get it back again

    Sorry for the things we should have done
    Sorry for the kids we pushed too far
    Sorry now for all the lonely hearts who can’t move on because

    We waited

    For love, for dreams in the night
    For days to come when we’d be all right
    I can’t remember why I did the things I did
    I was just a kid

    All the lines we knew back then, they now are faded
    All the laws we once obeyed, they have betrayed us
    People that I used to hate, I hardly remember
    Forgive the children we once were
