A Guide to Not Making Your Tribute Suck, published on Fanfiction.net, began as Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Originally posted a straightforward list of dos and don'ts (but mostly dont's) in the creation of original characters in The Hunger Games Fandom, it had gone through several evolutions, both at the author's whim and in attempts to better conform to the Fanfiction.net content guidelines.

Currently, the story features an actual plot, centering around Gamemaker Deyna Balthazar. As the Only Sane Employee, he tries to teach his fellow Gamemakers how to choose tributes that won't make the public suspect the reaping are less than random. Eventually he leads them on a Sue-hunt through the internet, joined by a Parody Sue they nickname Spot.

The story was written by FoalyWinsForever, who removed it from Fanfiction.net. The first three chapters are available through the Wayback Machine.
