Sharlot wasn't a complete stranger to the Capitol, but she had never been inside the Training Center before. She found herself completely overwhelmed by the people, the cameras, and all of the excitement from the Reaping and the Feast. She was going to have to get used to all of this attention. When most of the tributes had gone off to bed, Sharlot took the hotel wing elevator to the lower level.
As Sharlot walked to Vester's room she placed the silver charm from her necklace in her mouth, adjusting it into place. The silver chain hung from the corners of her lips. She punched in the password and entered Vester's room.

Vester was intensely studying a holographic projection of the Capitol. When he heard Sharlot enter he turned around and greeted Sharlot with a warm hug. "So good to see you, my dear Sharlot! How is Mr. Cuprick? I heard you spent the holidays with his family. How did it go?"

Sharlot gave him a pat on the back. What was this? He never hugged her. And Sharlot didn't want to talk about Mr. Cuprick. Her marriage wasn't technically an arranged one, but it was definitely the result of one of her father's plots. "We can talk about that later, Dad. Let's just get right into it."

"This year I'm going to put on a live show so people can experience the Hunger Games first hand. This will be the year that no one will ever forget. With so much at stake, viewers will be glued to the screens as they watch the tributes take part in the most cruel and twisted arena ever conceived."

"Oh you won't be the leader. I've already chosen the leader of my rebellion. Millie Cartwright, victor of the 2nd Hunger Games. She founded an alliance called the Primrose Accord and led a group of tributes to believe they could keep each other alive and break the Hunger Games. Of course they failed.
So this year I'm going to give them a taste of that rebellion by taking the tributes into the streets of the Capitol. We will lead them to believe they have escaped, and they will valiantly fight for the rebel cause, only for the tributes and all of the viewers in Panem to find out that it's all a make believe war. Another Hunger Games.
But we need to rekindle that spark of rebellion, and it needs it to come from within the tributes. Plant the seed of rebellion in her mind. Make her believe that the tributes are willing to defy the Games and take down the Capitol. Plus I'm going to need someone who can pull a few strings, someone who knows how to bypass security codes around here. You do want to be a Game Maker, don't you?"

It sounded insane to try and stage a rebellion. Would anyone truly believe it? And more importantly, could they get away with it? There would be massive repercussions unless she could convince the tributes and all of Panem that the rebellion was their own idea. But deception was Sharlot's favorite game. And it was her dream to become head Game Maker and she had to prove to her father that she was willing to do whatever it took.

Nilla Nightsand: Anybody up for some more freeform style RP with lower stakes after this is all over?
