- Coraline’s final chapter.
- A post detailing the events of the War of Britain (a seven year struggle following the events of the Hunger Games).
- Your final task prompt, entitled Epilogue: Ten Years After…
Kyrie can hardly bear the pace of his heart as it thuds against his ribcage. He is numb to the world around him, trapped by the intensity of his heartbeat. After what seems like a lifetime, it all rushes back with a crash, gunshots cracking and fires flashing. Kyrie feels a sudden stinging in his eyes and suddenly registers Feral’s voice and the shape of his friends at the edge of the roof.
Nessa is hardly conscious of the bodies and buildings as they slide past her on either side. Her veins pound with adrenaline and her despair has all but disappeared, legs flying in a powerful stride and arms pumping with abandon.
The St. Hilda unit, led by Amarei Flynt, cleans the street effectively, preparing for the rescue of Linus Moore. None of the undead put up much of a fight, and once Wolf—the second in command—reports that the area is clear, they move towards the little house.
Figures stream through the smoke around the entrance, dressed in red and white. From this distance, Rose can only make out their colour and the tiny flashes of their firearms as they make their ways down the streets.
Feral’s eyes are drawn away from the smoke vanishing up the dome by movement on the ground. Figures in red and white, tiny because of the distance, are streaming down streets, their lines curling around bits of smoking rubble. Feral can make out the flashing of their guns as they move, and watches the moving corpses fall all around them.
Make sure your read Coraline’s latest chapter so you know the context of this task.
Take up your tributes’ stories directly from the end of Task 10 and write until they arrive at the entrance to the arena, where Coraline and her unit is posted.
Less than five minutes after the explosion and ending events of the last task, a unit of red and white garbed soldiers will meet your tribute. They will be securing the area while making sure your tribute is safe, healthy, and not frightened. They will explain themselves immediately and will respond to any questions or concerns before escorting your tribute to the entrance, where Coraline and her unit awaits.
Feel free to create names and character for the soldiers who assist your tributes (Paula is leading the St. Bede unit), and make sure to keep to your own tribute’s character: perhaps she is resistant to assistance, or maybe he doubts the soldiers’ legitimacy. Write this into your task.
As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask! Your task will be due by next weekend.
After this task, there will be one more task, an epilogue of sorts, which will take place in the Highlands and will be detailed in a future prompt. I look forward to the coming together of all our stories!
