Welcome, welcome! This is a cross-fandom, “What if I dumped my favorite characters into another fictional world, just for kicks and also because the wait till Season 5 is slowly making me lose my mind” post! Now, I realize the residents of Beacon Hills are facing quite enough chaos already …
But it’s not like it’s out of the realm of possibitilies. Remember him? Yep, that’s baby Derek all decked out in Tribute garb.
Who would die because of an unfortunate event involving their own feet, tripping, and an exploding platform? Who would reveal their true selves and emerge as a cold-hearted mastermind?
For the sake of hypothesis, let’s say any supernatural abilities are removed in the Arena, leaving everyone on an even playing field. Ready?
“Nous chassons ceux qui nous chassent.”
Archery was cool before Katniss Everdeen hit the screen, you know. While in general both Katniss and Allison would rather follow the “We protect those who can’t protect themselves” code, in the Arena it’s every hunter for herself.
Status: Dead. A Jabberjay attack mimicking her loved ones screaming for help leaves her too vulnerable to retaliate when a bunch of Career Tributes attack.
“Just once, can someone try to come up with something that doesn’t involve killing everyone?”
Scott is a peace-advocate before anything else and makes an effort to see the best in everyone he encounters.
Yes, even the Monkey Mutts. “They’re just misunderstood furry babies!”
He’d try to call off the Games, insisting that if everyone united and played nice, they could be stopped altogether.
But as we all know, President Snow doesn’t take too kindly to acts of rebellion.
Status: Dies in an “accident” orchestrated by the Gamemakers. Scott McCall is too precious for the likes of Panem, y’all.
“I got bored with classical Latin.”
First of all, let’s take a moment and picture Lydia Martin in (off-brand!) camo pants and covered in plum-sized, oozing stings from a Tracker Jacker attack. Still there? Good. Lydia would charm everyone at her pre-Games interviews, making the sponsors fall over themselves to help her in the Arena.
The odds don’t need to be in her favor, the odds already worship her.
Status: Alive. That cute lil’ headband she was wearing as a district token? Yeah, it doubled as a poisonous boomerang she designed herself.
“I cloned them using the RFID emulator.”
Everyone underestimates Gumby Stiles but he’s 10 steps ahead of you at all times. While you’re still trying to figure out how he stole the coveted sleeping bag that reflects body heat from right under your nose, he’s planning an elaborate trap ending up with you hanging from a tree by one foot. This may be the Hunger Games, but Stiles plays by his own rules.
Status: Alive. A strategic alliance with the Careers allowed him to rely on their protection until he could manipulate them into killing each other. He almost met his demise after one smartass comment too many …
What can I say, the Careers have short tempers.
But in the end his scrappiness prevailed and he survived. The only question is: will the blood on his hands ever wash away?
As for Malia, Kira, Jackson and Isaac…
Status: Dead. There’s a reason the initial rush towards the Cornucopia is called the blood bath, you know. Kidding, I’m actually 100% sure Jackson would survive, hopefully not by pulling a Titus.
“Nobody ever wins the games, period. There are survivors. There are no winners.”
Any other crossovers you’d want to see? In the meantime, Teen Wolf Today, Teen Wolf Tomorrow, Teen Wolf Forever …
