Hello, people of Panem. Or Parks Fandom. Pandom, if you will.

This post will be the (virtual!) home of the Amber Games.

What are the Amber Games, you might ask?

Well. Basically, [ profile] saucydiva & [ profile] stillscape are fighting to the death in Hawaii. And I'm the gamemaker, and yeah, that's about it.

Pull up a seat, and watch them duke it out. ([ profile] craponaspatula and I are gong to have a good time watching. Amirite?)

To start, we abandon you on a ship with nothing but a case of white wine, a couch, and history channel documentaries.


(tell me how you get off the ship and onto the islands. Andie, it's your choice as to which island we are on.)

You look so gleeful about our deaths.

I don't suppose I can stay on the boat? I really hate the water. Is there a life boat? If not, I guess I grab the wine and try to whack her in the head with it? But I probably fail. I suppose I'd jump overboard and doggie-paddle to land. Or try to hide on the ship.

You are not allowed to stay on the ship. This is like Titanic, the ship is going down.

There are 12 lifeboats.

Do the lifeboats have oars?

No. These ones do not. Because you will beat each other with them.

Actually, yes, they do, because I doubt either of you ahve the upper-body strength to actually beat each other with them.

I feel like you're arbitrarily changing the rules.

Now, you might not know this, but I spent my youth wrestling large farm animals, so I have some upper body strength, and I know how to use torque.

I mean, I'm the game-maker. I do what I want.

But. The oars are like those on a Viking Longship. You are 1/2 mile from shore.

So I'll just swim, then. Or ride to shore on a dolphin.

I accept this.

This isn't fair. I spent my youth- god, what was I doing? There were no farm animals, that's for sure. God no.

Look, it's not my fault that you didn't spend your childhood preparing for the Amber Games.

I had no idea I was going against a Career

I had no idea I was going to be a Career, really.

Yeah, but... If it's going to be one of us, it's sure as hell not me.

If it makes you feel better, I've never shot a gun or killed anything. Well, insects. But those don't count.

I mean, it's not my fault that she didn't learn how to navigate cornfields or wrestled animals.


You never know when an Amber Games is going to happen.

I mean, I can swim pretty well, so I'll probably just jump off the boat and go for it, possibly clutching a bottle of wine. Or I'll tread water until saucydiva finally jumps off the boat, and then I'll drown her. Easy enough.

You are actually not allowed to touch each other until you reach the center of the island. Because we want a show.

saucydiva, it is your turn. How do you make it to the shore?

Date: 2012-06-22 10:59 pm (UTC)

I didn't know there were dolphins!

Scary beasts, really.

I guess I paddle to shore in my boat.

Finally answer, Amber.

Good answer. You are now tired and must find shelter before you make a trek to the center of the island.

I will turn over my boat and sleep under it.


I will let her think I'm under the boat, and then I'll go sleep under a tree.

Yes. You get something from a sponsor. The fans like your spunk.

What do you need?

I was going to say a machete, but I don't really think I could slit someone's throat, even if they were threatening me.

So smoke bomb.

So I can confuse her and run away.

Okay, well you get a canister of soup.

Date: 2012-06-23 04:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Do you eat the soup, or keep it?

Am I tired? If so, I will take shelter in a small rock cove. It has a trickle of fresh water running through one of the rocks, so I'm going to stay there and hydrate.

You are tired and she is not in sight, so you take shelter in the rock cove.

But you get stung by a Man-O-War that is hiding in the cove.* What do you do?

*Note: this actually happened to my mom when she was in Hawaii.

Flush the sting with salt water and wait for the pain to subside?

Ok, I just became aware that his is happening. Why is there not more FIGHTING??!
