Step 6: Crisis

Step 10: New Life
The tenth step is new life. Katniss has to pretend and convince the Capitol that she is truly in love with Peeta. Katniss is no longer a tribute but a Victor. She defied the Capitol is now a figure of hope for all of Panem.
Step 11: Resolution
The eleventh step is resolution. Katniss returns to her district, but she is now a new person. This is her new Status Quo. She wants her life to go back to as normal as it can be but it will never be the same.
