I have invented none of these stories. They are taken from many different sources, and in clothing them with an English dress my work has been that of adapter rather than translator. In picturesqueness of conception Japanese stories yield the palm to none. And they are rich in quaint expressions and dainty conceits. But they are apt to be written in a style almost too bald. This defect the professional story-teller remedies by colouring his story as he tells it. In the same way I have tried to brighten the rather bare structure of a story, where it seemed to need such treatment; with touches of local colour in order to give emphasis to the narrative, and at the same time make the story more attractive to the foreign reader. Whether I have succeeded or not, the reader must judge for himself. I shall be satisfied if in some small measure I have been able to do for Japanese folklore what Andrew Lang has done for folklore in general, and if the tales in their English dress are found to retain the essential features of Japanese stories.

Your story is good and it fits into the universe. I do know in universe they mentioned some of the earlier Hunger Games, but I dont remember what they said about that years games. But I do hope you follow to the cannon of the universe! <br> But my dear sweet friend. I really, really, /really/ hate it when people say _____'s POV. I personally feel like its better to let a reader use context clues to figure it out. I also feel that if youre going to switch around someones point of view you should spend 2 or 3 chapters/parts on one character before switching. Now thats just my opinion, take it or leave it. Its also just somthing that annoys me. <br> If you do continue to use POVs please, please never switch POVs in the middle of a chapter. It annoys me beyond belife. <br> But still, its a good story and fits in cannon! Keep up the good work!
