I think Amanda and I are from District 8 but we're kind of on the border between 8 and 10.
Our tributes didn't have offical names which is kind of sad. Can I name them? I'll let you name them in the comments if you want :) But our district is the one where the first rebels Katniss meets in the woods are from. We are the ones that staged the rebellion while Katniss got proposed to.
District 8 was one of the districts that President Snow was concerned about, mainly for the uprisings. On the night when President Snow read the card for the Quarter Quell, District Eight rose up and fought against its Peacekeeping force. The Peacekeepers were caught off guard and overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of the mob. The Peacekeepers' Headquarters, the Justice Building, the armory, and the Communications Center were all secured by the rebels. However, the Capital responded by sending in thousands of Peacekeepers and using Hovercrafts to bomb the rebel strongholds. The rebels began to flee and the forward momentum slowed, then stopped. Everything went into a lockdown mode, and no one was allowed out of their houses for a while. The factories were shut down and the only time the T.V. played anything but static was when it showed suspected rebel instigators being executed. Eventually things returned to normal but the Capital blew up one large factory when they found out the talk of rebellion started there.
So, yeah. Amanda and I are a part of the rebel district. What district are you?
Ps. I think it'd be really fun to copy the map and do your own post about the history of your district.
Pps. If you are underwater, I'm sorry! That sucks. Just go to whatever district is closest :) and if your out of country pick a random district and that can be where you live :)
Happy Hunger Games :)
