Since seeing Mockingjay Pt. 2 last night all that’s been running through my head has been a Hunger Games/TMFU AU. Haven’t developed much and prob won’t go any farther with it but I need to write it down to make it go away.
Elizabeth and Alexander- cruel tributes from District 1. Illya- probably from District 3 it’s known for electronics (he poked fun at Napoleon’s poorly made American bugs). After his father is taken away for some slight to the Capitol he has to apply for tesserae to help his mother support them, as no one would hire them for fear of upsetting the Capitol. Napoleon- I’d say Napoleon would be from one of the richer Districts…. District 2 is in charge of fighting and weapon making. However, District 2 usually has Careers volunteering for the Games and Napoleon would not be volunteering for it. Either he was forced to volunteer or the drawing was rigged (and no one volunteered after him). Gaby-little chop shop girl comes from District 6. It specializes in transportation after all. Waverly- former victor and/or a sponsor for Gaby (and later Illya and Napoleon). He has a plan to destroy the Capitol and stop the Games. Rudi- sponsors Alexander and Elizabeth.
So they all get thrown into the Games and I’m not smart/creative enough to figure out why in this AU but Napoleon is tasked to protect Gaby, Illya is tasked to do the same. At some point they go from fighting each other to working together.
THIS CONTAINS HUNGER GAMES AND ROMAN EMPIRE CONTENT
Ok so basically I was watching Mocking Jay Pt2, and I began to think about the hunger games and the Gladiator fights, and how similar they are. The gladiator fights in the Roman Empire were the slaves fighting against each other to stop the people from rebelling, the Hunger Games is very similar. All the people in Panem are like slaves for the Capital. They work and provide for the Capital, but get little in return, so the kids sent off to the Capital are almost (yes I understand they are not actually slaves of the capital, and a lot of slavery is a lot worse then what they were going through) like the slaves put into the Gladiator fights. The Capital does this to stop rebellion, like the Empire did it to stop rebellion. Also after further thought I realized that there were 12 Districts, and 12 gods. Each god represents a District.

District 9 (Grain) // Ceres (Demeter in Greek)
District 10 (Live stock) // Mars (Ares in Greek)
District 11 (Agriculture) // Diana (Artemis in Greek)
