Katniss as a Capitol whore || judge me all the your hearts desire, but I can breathe again.
Katniss, shades of Cinna/Katniss, The Honey Trap, PG-13

If only her father could see her now.

Dolled up in a candy-colored bustier, her hair loose, her dignity stripped from her. A tart in the Capitol.

Katniss took a shaking breath as she stepped from the posh launch room onto the plate in her glass tube. Cinna had tried his best to prepare her as he always did, but in so many ways this was worse than the Games. She couldn't save herself with a bow, or a knife, or her bare hands. She couldn't really save herself at all. She watched his face look away from her as the platform began to rise and she was ejected upwards into the crowded Capitol room.

The lights were blinding and she tried not to squint but the chatter and the lights disoriented her more than the arena ever had.

A spotlight hit her then and the room quieted, something she didn't expect. An electronic display above her head rattled blood red digital numbers—bids—and they began to soar. Her price. Caesar Flickerman called out her name from somewhere unseen, describing her biography for anyone with a head injury in the audience. Everyone knew who she was and why she was there.

The day Haymitch had told her the news she had almost taken her own life. She was the inspiration for the uprisings, agreeing to this would be agreeing to Capitol rule, but the risk to District 12 was too great. President Snow had threatened to clear out the entire District, children and families slaughtered in the streets. Cinna, Peeta, Haymitch, Portia, all gone. It was something Katniss couldn't bear the thought of. The Capitol knew all of her weak spots.

So a plan was hatched in secret. If Katniss would rather die than live her life as a Capitol whore then she should risk her life for good. The plan was to get herself invited into Snow's bedchambers, and leave him dead when she left. With the President out of the way there was a chance for change. While the Capitol rushed to restructure, the Districts would revolt with one last push.

She could hear Cinna's voice in her head. Smile, Katniss. Smile. For this to work you have to submit. Just for a little while. She steeled her reserve and managed a soft, false smile as the numbers crept higher. Caesar climbed the steps to her platform, offering his hand to help her down. "How about a round of applause for the lovely Miss Everdeen?"

She gave a small curtsy to the crowd as Caesar helped her down off of her platform. She caught sight of the high number displayed above her head as it crawled to a stop. She couldn't even understand the amount of money, it was more than she'd ever imagined.

Katniss/Gale, Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby, edgy and dull, and cut a six inch valley through the middle of my soul. (Bruce Springsteen, "I'm on Fire")
And... mine! This will justify all the awkward laughter he got whenever Gale in the movie was shown watching Katniss and Peeta in the Games.

Katniss/Peeta, You say you don't love me, girl you can't hide your desire, 'cause when we kiss, fire. (Bruce Springsteen, "Fire")

Katniss + Peeta + Haymitch || i'm the fury in your head, i'm the fury in your bed, i'm the ghost in the back of your head
Annie || and I sailed the seas but you were never even there
I'd give my bones for you to get a few more years for you and I, oh, Annie
omfG THIS SONGGGG
I NEED.
Katniss/Peeta: The truth is, love doesn't heal PTSD and neither does sex... after all this, we're still here fighting on.
Cato/Katniss, You are my obsession. My festish, my religion. My confusion, my confession. The one I want tonight. You can kiss me with your torture. Tie me up to golden chains. Leave me begin undercover. Wrong or right, it's all role play. Based off movie!Cato and Katniss.
