The Celebrity Games

"May good fortune follow you wherever you go!" The celebrity games, only one rule: Kill or be killed. When the royal family took over the world, region 13 of England rebelled and in consequence, got nuked within an inch of its life. As payment for this rebellion, the royals instated The celebrity games where each year a celebrity would be chosen and the country that they're from would have to produce two female or male competitors to compete in a chosen arena, fighting to the death. As a prize for surviving, they get to marry the chosen celebrity. But this year is going to be so different...


1. The beginning

"May good fortunes follow you wherever you go..."

The celebrity games. There's only one rule: Kill or be killed. Every year, two girls or guys get selected from each region to compete in the celebrity games. The winner gets to marry the most up and coming celebrity or band of the year. In each major country in the world there are 13 regions. The country gets chosen by what nationality the chosen celebrity is. The whole world ends up watching, breathing a sigh of relief that most of them would never have to go through it. And as well they might, the celebrity games are the most barbaric thing ever started on this planet (and I'm including the things Hitler did here) and the people who watch it and enjoy it are either devoted royalists or complete phycopaths.

It all started back in 1988 when in England, the 13th region rebelled and tried to overthrow the royalty that basically rule the whole world. They destroyed and bombed that whole region and instituted The celebrity games to remind the whole world how powerful they are. Well, that was 24 years ago and its still going on today in 2012.

The contestants who are chosen are treated like proper V.I.Ps until they're sent out into an unknown territory that the game makers had been working on all year, usually in some abandoned ruin from the first years of the british empire back when Queen Elizabeth I was around. Back when it was just England and a few bits of what we know now to be America. Sometimes the contestants get shipped off to some random country and expected to just adapt.

One year, it was in a desert, and half the contestants died of sun stroke in the first week. Apparently that didn't get the viewers exited enough so obviously they won't be doing that again... I mean, the royalty say they're doing this for the 'viewers' and some do actually like it, but really, we all think its an abomination and the Royalty only do it because they're bored and so there won't be another rebellion. Its like they're dangling our freedom in front of our faces on a stick and teasing us, sneering, 'We got your kids, nah nah nah nah nah!'.

Mind you, obviously the royalists in the capital cities don't mind, they get to live a cushy life, eating their fine foods and not having to ever bother about their children being sent off to compete in the celebrity games. As the name suggests, they support the royals and completely love the games. They're the target audience and everyone just has to suffer... Just like watching Jersey Shore-which is also compulsory watching... Woe betide the man who has to win the games for Snookie in a few years time.

I'm Fran by the way. I'm 16, 5'6", have wavy copper blonde/strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, peachy skin and perfectly straight teeth thanks to having braces at 13. I guess I'm quite handy with a bow and arrow and can use a sword or a knife pretty well. I live in region 12 - east midlands. We're a relatively small region that specializes in mining, lace and beer and we also supply the whole of the UK with water. We have the only resevoir left in the UK after the bombing of '88 up in the peak district. We also hold the beer festival here in Nottingham castle every year and the royals wear our lace on their wedding dresses. That's not to say they like us though. We're too close to region 13 for their liking and plus, the only survivors from the bombing there live here, or what's left of them anyway. Now and then there will be a missing person and everyone gets worried until they realize that they had survived the 13 bombing of '88. Then everyone just stops asking questions. You see, the royals don't want people knowing or surviving what happened in 13 so they employ willing royalists to try and get rid of everyone that came from there. There are a lot of undercover royalists snooping around 12, trying to catch anyone out.

You would think after 24 years these people would have just become one of us, but no. Word still gets around that someone disappeared last night, or Mrs Miggins down the road looks awfully posh for someone living in 12 despite all the authorities shushing it all up.

Now that I've given you an insight into my terrible world, shall we get on with the story?
