Author's Summary:
Before Katniss and Peeta, seventy-three children won the Hunger Games. Some were brutal. Some were clever. Some were lucky. A few were almost decent. These are their stories. This is the Victors Project.

Review:
Absolutely fantastic! Every chapter is a new one shot of a games and each one is beautiful in the same terrible way as canon. This is a fic you don't need to read in one go - it can be read chapter by chapter over time - but it can also be really enjoyable as a whole, driven by the diversity of narrator voices (some chapters are POV of the victor they focus on, some of viewers, some of Capitol fans or Gamemakers, even some of mentors), the overarching themes of Hunger Games history and the lives pre- and post-war of some canon favorites and the continued human drama/trauma of the canon verse expanded. The characters and plots are amazingly well written from the first to the last and at 77 chapters and more than 300,000 words, this is a complete and classic epic every Hunger Games fan should read.
