victor!clove, she laughed and danced through a field of graves pg-13 (sort of dark) ~not sure this is what you had in mind, but~

She laughed as she looked down at the body of her newest victim. She’d won.

She’d won because she was cold, cold as the blades of her knives. She’d won because she was smart, smart enough to lure the others into the traps she’d set. She’d won because she didn’t get attached.

How many had said that she stood no chance because of her young age? Clove wanted to laugh in their faces. They did not know her. They did not understand.

In her world, there was no time for loneliness, no space for mercy, no need for love.

And now everything was hers.

And she smiled and she laughed, alone now, in the huge arena. How foolish the others were, she thought. How easy it was, getting rid of them.

Years and years of training, of preparation. It paid off in the end.

And everything was hers now and she laughed and danced through a field of graves.

Haymitch, Measuring a summer's day, I only finds it slips away to grey / The hours, they bring me pain.
katniss' mom, all the lonely people, where do they all come from?
katniss/peeta; we were born to fuck each other / one way or another
not sure if this is what you wanted but anyway, yeah..

Two Realities, Peeta/Katniss, Post Mockingjay

Sometimes, he and Katniss make love.

They make love in the ruins of their old Ditrict with the sunlight coming in through the window and the smell of bread and dirt surrounding them. He holds her gently, lightly touching her face and caressing the tip of braid.
She sighs contently and moves slowly, savouring every moment.

‘I love you’ He whispers, ‘Please don’t ever leave me, I love you so much’

And she smiles, and replies with meeting her lips with his.




Other times, when the lines blur between reality and the lies in his head, he fucks her.

It’s anger and hatred. He draws blood when his teeth sink into the skin above her collar bone. She yells. He enters her harder, trying to own her in every way, trying to fight at what he feels.

Each time she protests but a part of her likes the raw brutality of it all.

‘You fucking whore,’ He yells, his eyes hard and unforgiving.





Afterwards, he cries. His tears mix with the bloodshed and she wonders what other part of him the Capitol took.

Caught In the In Between of Beautiful Disaster - PG-13. Also at Archive Of Our Own.

1/2


--

After the end, there is nothing.


Johanna packs a bag, tucking in the pine bundle Katniss’d given her inside first. There isn’t much else to add, and she can barely feel its weight when she swings the bag up onto her back. She stands there, in the bare compartment they’d shared, her hands opening and closing reflexively, wondering if she should…


It’s supposed to be different, safe, better now, even though it’s only been a few days after the end. But if there’s anything that winning the 67th Hunger Games taught her, it’s that only idiots fail to have a few tricks up their sleeve.


… She deliberates for another half-minute before she heads to the armory to collect her axe, just in case.



She boards a train to District 7. She doesn’t even know why she bothers.


Her family’s gone; Snow took care of that years ago, when he’d sold her to two brothers who’d wanted her for a night. She’d gotten back to her apartment only a few hours after leaving, her hands shaking and covered in blood. Half an hour later, the call had come from Snow, telling her to go home for the funerals.


It’s barely recognizable, home. She wonders if the trees, or what’s left of them, anyway, are having trouble placing her, too. She finds a house in remnants of the woods, near the broken dam, and tries to make do.



When the rain falls, she forces herself to go outside, naked, and do a cursory cleansing of her body. She tells herself that if it’s not coming from a machine, it won’t hurt her.


The night the rebels came for her, the Capitol’s soldiers been working her over again, slowly and deliberately. She can still feel their hands on her, in her, tight and slick with water.


One time, two men catch her this way. She tilts her head slightly in their direction, a sneer on her face, and picks up the axe she’d brought with her just in case. They continue on their way again quickly, and she drops the weapon and resumes her makeshift shower.


Johanna tries to stay, because she has nowhere else to go, but being home encourages the splintered memories she’d shut out to worm their way back in. She wakes up in the middle of the night, repeatedly, gasping for breath and clawing at her own neck.

katniss/peeta, before you came into my life, i missed you so bad, and you should know that
cato(/clove), "In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do." - C.S. Lewis

johanna/annie, tame the ghosts in my head that run wild and wish me dead
yes. yes please, universe.
gale/katniss

you never knew what i loved in you
i don't know what you loved in me
maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping i might be
all of us are going forward, none of us are going back

he fell in love with a girl in the woods once.

gale isn't used to having things that are his. when his dad dies, he has to take care of his family. when katniss's dad's dies, and almost takes her mother with him, he helps her to take care of prim.

(i don't need your help. katniss used to hiss at first, but she never sent him away.)

he gives most of what he has away. he shares it. but this, the woods, the girl, the bow, all of it. it's just his. it's theirs.

it's something he'll never have to give away, he hopes. (there is no room for hoping in district 12, and perhaps that's why he looses it in the end.)

---

they are angry, they are furious, but they are contained. the fence is always around them in the end, and they can't leave the fence.

---

she leaves.

steps right into the lion's mane, without him, and he waits for her to come home.

and she does.

she comes back but she's no longer the girl in the woods, she's on fire now.

he doesn't think he'll ever love anyone as much.

---


he fights the war.

it's brutal, and it's tough and by the time that is over she can't even look him in the eye.

she sent him away. and he knows that he lost the girl in the woods a long time ago but now it feels like he is losing her all over and it makes him think she wasn't his to keep in the first place.

all fire leaves in it's wake is destruction.

---

a smiling girl with a bow, a willow tree, a meadow. he even sees the woods in his dreams sometimes.

he loved her once.
