haymitch, katniss/gale,
saccharine read, such a sentimental novel
give you cavities if it doesn't drive you to the bottle
Gale/Katniss, post-Mockingjay - and she begins to lose count of how many letters she has written to him.
I don't know if this quite follows your prompt, but I did write a post Mockingjay fic wherein Katniss writes Gale a letter here.
Peeta & Annie (shippy or not) - "You be nice to her Finnick, or I might try and take her away from you."
Seconded.

Cato/Clove - Victors!AU? Basically, any fic in life that gives them (even a semi-) happy ending and I will be building your temple.



I would also like to point out that this ficathon has taken me from not even knowing C/C was a thing, to basically becoming an OTP. WHAT IS GOING ON?!
OMG I swear so hard I am working on it, got another thousand words written last weekend but ALL OF THESE PROMPTS are distracting me. I want a (sorta) happy ending for them, too, and I'm determined to have it even if I write it myself.

If you don't mind waiting for the rest of it, maybe I'll put up chapter one though!

PS thank you for the lovely feedback.

haymitch/effie, is a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse?
Haymitch/Katniss || Drink up baby doll, are you in or are you out? It's all right, ‘cause there's beauty in the breakdown…so let go
Portia (bonus points for Portia/Peeta or Portia/Cinna)

i had the blankest year
i saw life turn into a TV show
it was totally weird
the person i knew
i didn't really know
Portia, Moments, M (kinda sorta got away from me while I was writing so possibly outside prompt)

“I don’t want to die.”

I turn then, noticing for the first time my Tribute as he stands tall against the wall. He’s stripped down to his bare form, Beauty Base Zero as they call it in the Capitol, and he looks raw. And beautiful. I don’t love Peeta Mellark.

Not yet, anyways.



When he holds me and shifts against me, I know it’s not me that he’s picturing. That’s okay – we don’t do this for meaning in the Capitol. Only ever for lust.

That’s what makes it okay.

That, and the fact that this boy hadn’t had the words to ask for something he clearly wanted before he died. I couldn’t deny him even if he didn’t say the words out loud.

So when he pushes through to his finish I don’t make him feel bad that he’s left me behind. I sit up, professional as always, and straighten my skirts down again.

“Are you ready to make an impression?” I tidy his hair back into place and pat his cheek gently. He doesn’t smile.



Standing in the tube he looks too young. He’s stoic as he looks above him to the circle of light that beckons. I want to run through the glass and bring him back. Keep him safe.

He’s entranced me, this one has, with his words and his love story and with everything that he stands for. I know it’s not the love that binds but instead the desperate kind of need that makes you want to save someone.

When I go home that night, my TV never turns off. I watch the whole way through just to make sure he lives.



He’s screaming when he comes out. I’m not sure why they’ve brought in me but they have. I try to keep my stomach contents down as they threaten to rise while I look over his tragic body. The Arena has destroyed it.

The announcement that he’s going to lose the leg catches me off guard. It’s quite rare now-a-days that the Capitol can’t salvage a limb. To be honest, I think they’re just unwilling because he’s broken all the rules.

I go home that night and set to work immediately on designing a new leg. Function, strength, mobility – all the things I thought I would never use in Games design.



The day he wakes up I’ve already attached the new addition to his body. I run my fingers across his jaw as his eyes flutter open. They’re panicked and not nearly as steady as they used to be. He grabs my wrist tightly, squeezing it between his fingers.

I don’t resist.

“You didn’t die Peeta, you’re right here.” I whisper it quietly to him. I watch him try to shift upwards but the weight of the leg has caught him off guard and his body slips against the smooth steel of the table.

I try not to match his sobs as he realizes that he’s missing something.

“Katniss...” It all clicks then and I long to sooth his worries.

“She’s alive too. Both of you are.”



He’s not the same boy I met before 74. No, this time before the Tour he’s fragile and sinking and I can’t help but mourn for the way his eyes look hollow. He keeps up the show for the cameras, but I can see through it.

When he dresses for the final day of the Tour, there’s almost elation in his face at the realization that he gets to go home again. It’s almost okay again for him.



I tried not to get attached to my Tributes. That’s what everyone in the Games warns against – get too close and you lose your edge. But he was different. He wasn’t in this to win. He just didn’t want to die.

So when I watch the announcement of the Quarter Quell rules I can’t help but feel for the boy I know. This won’t bode well for him – he’ll go in for her and he’ll save her, but that means undoubtedly that he will be lost.

He’ll give up everything for her. It’s what he does. That’s why everyone loves Peeta Mellark.

Okay, this is probably WAY OFF from what you were thinking, but since this prompt of yours inspired me to write fic for the first time in like, two years I figured I should share. (Also, thanks for the potential new OTP. I loved both Seneca and Foxface but never thought of them as a pair before this.)

star-crossed lovers indeed; Seneca/Foxface.

katniss/gale, post-mockingjay
we've been lovers and strangers and friends who get angry
make mistakes and amends and brief moments of magic
we forgive and forget and give in to attraction
this whole thing depends on amnesia and madness
OMG I want to write affair!fic.
