In all of these sets Poppy is all smiley and stuff, but that's only because the only suitable pics I could find of Miranda Cosgrove were smiling. Just pretend Poppy is all grim and scared, k?

My last minutes with my family were all too short. May gave me a bracelet that had the word "hope" on it. I doubted there was any hope for me now, but accepted it anyway. After my time was up the peacekeepers led me to the bright red train that would whisk me off to the capitol.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When I came aboard the train, Alto was already there. I'm pretty sure my grief was quite obvious, because he said. "It's okay, you're gonna be fine." Although I know he knows that I'm most definitely not "going to be fine". We chatted for a bit, Alto trying to make jokes as a weak attempt to cheer myself up. But I noticed the worry and sadness in his eyes.
The red-haired lady walked into the room. "Hello, lovelies." She chirped. "My name is Sasha, but you probably already know that. And I'm guessing you are Poppy and Alto."
"No we're the other tributes from District 11." Alto said sarcastically, but only so I could hear. I giggled.
"What is so funny!?" But then a tall, graceful woman walked through the door. She had cream-colored skin and brown hair that tumbled down her shoulders. "Idina, right on time!" She glanced at me and Alto. "Tributes, this will be one of your mentors. Your other one should be here any minute now."
We talked with Idina, she reminded me of my mom, until our other mentor arrived. It took a while though and when he finally came Sasha remarked disdainfully about how he was a whole hour late and how we really need to start watching the reapings, but now it was almost time for dinner.
Our other mentor's name apparently wasn't "your other mentor", as Sasha kept calling him. His name was Cordo. His crazy name matching his craziness. He stumbled in through the doorway with a cigar in his hand mumbling something no one could hear. Alto must have noticed my disappointment, because he whispered to me about how he was the only other District 11 victor who was still alive. 
"How about we watch the reapings!" Sasha said with her ever-present cheeriness. Not waiting for a reply she grabbed a remote from her pocket and pressed a button. A screen materialized out of the wall. She flipped to a channel that had just started the D12 reaping. We watched that and then watched our own. When they called my name and I stumbled backwards almost collapsing and the peacekeepers led me, with a dazed expression on my face, to the stage. When Alto got called he walked calm and dignified, showing no emotion. I thought about what bad a position I was in. I looked like a weakling. So much for sponsors.
But to my surprise Idina congratulated me. "Good, the other tributes won't see you as a threat." We then watched the D10 reaping and then went to the dining car for supper. We ate a huge feast, more food then I'd ever seen in my life. We had chicken and oranges in a cranberry sauce. There was this thick bread, that tasted unlike anything that we had in District 11. And for the first time in my life I ate until I was full. We then watched the District's 9, 8, 7 then 6 reapings. We waited for a half hour or so and then then watched the District 5 reaping live. There was a tall girl, whom was only a year or two older than me and looked rather innocent. But she was not to be underestimated. The rest of the reapings didn't start until morning, and Sasha told us to get plenty of sleep. We got escorted off too our rooms. There was a white cotton nightgown on my bed. I changed into that, carefully placing my hope bracelet on my nightstand. I quickly fell asleep, exhausted from the day's activities.
