cato/clove as the final two when the rule change is made

there's gold in my heart
but the wind took my sails through the dark
and if you wait too long,
then you'll never see the dawn again

Johanna/Finnick

Howling ghosts they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lionheart.
A lionheart.
Finnick, there ain't much future for a man who works the sea / there ain't no island left for islanders like me

Within A Long And Broken Night

He stays awake at night, but there is always someone else awake too. He packs and repacks and they've decided his insistence on neatly folded belongings is part of his psychosis, which makes him laugh, and only makes them jot down notes and adjust his dosages.

There were a few times that he managed to sleep, but each time he woke with his lashes sticking together, and damp spots on his pillow, and he can't remember why. He knows she stands outside the window, he can sense it, the little hairs on the back of his neck, on his arms standing right up. Sometimes he bangs on the window, hoping she's on the other side of it and startled out of her sick observation. Sometimes he just lies in bed. Once, just once, he leans his forehead against the glass, and puts one hand up against it, moving his thumb against what he imagines is her face, if she had pressed her forehead against his on the other side of the glass.

Haymitch sits in the room on the other side, and watches his thumb move back and forth.

"He do that a lot?"

The nurse shakes her head. "No. Most of the time he just gets up and runs to the glass real quiet-like and bangs on it once. Like he's hoping someone is there. Happened a lot when Soldier Hawthorne would come in here."

"You let him in here?"

"He has clearance."

"Yeah," Haymitch says into his hand. "Don't let him in here for awhile, hey? See if he does it to anyone else. I mean, he can't see through that glass, right?"

"Well, no, but he's not an idiot, Haymitch. He knows it's two-way."

"I never said he was an idiot. A fool sometimes, but never an idiot."

"He has been much better with the staff."

"That's good."

The nurse stands there for several minutes. "I'm told the Mockingjay is going out in the field."

Haymitch nods. "Without her here, he's not getting better, but he's also not getting worse, am I right?" The nurse just nods once, slowly. "Dammit," he says to himself.

The day they come for him, they dress him up like a soldier. Haymitch just stands in the doorway. "Sending me out to die like a good little Tribute?"

Haymitch can't help but think they are.

Haymitch/Maysilee: AU, circa 50th Games, Maysilee and Haymitch are the ones who spark that little Mockingjay's Rebellion off.
finnick/annie,

as we're escaping,
ghosts of the past sleep lightly
katniss/peeta, i did eeny meeny miny moe. you lost. and I still chose you.
THIS
Haymitch, I'm gonna start a revolution of convoluted disillusion / I'll lead a war with no conclusion / And in the final hour I'll be a confident coward
Finnick/Annie, AU modern day highschool, love is all, all my soul, you're my playground love
Finnick/Annie, spoilers for Annie's story, PG, swimming pool silence

The car crash was quick, though the aftermath was not, and Annie had dreams about her brother’s headless body chasing her through the night.

She was teased at school for it, because children can be cruel about things they don’t understand, and only Finnick, the boy who had been her friend for years and had sat in the hospital with her and wiped the blood from her face, didn’t mention the new wildness in her eyes.

The only time they’d be apart was when he swam, because she couldn’t bear the water. That was how they’d crashed, you see – her mother had turned too early for the bridge and careened into the river, and the windscreen had shattered and taken her brother’s head off, but she could swim.

(not any more)

He moved through the water like he was born there, and she would sit and watch him, her legs tucked up under her, headphones in her ears, pretending to be listening to the Beatles but in fact examining the way his body moved. She didn’t
consider it romantically (well, not really), more wondering how he could bear it.

“You should swim with me,” he said, pulling himself up onto the side, hair dripping. She shied away, automatically, and he saw it, yet said nothing.

“Next week,” she promised. Empty promises, of course, but they both knew, so it was alright. Hee wrapped a towel round his shoulders and sat on the bleachers above her, and flicked water droplets at the back of her neck like a child. She shuddered, but bore it.

“Have you spoken to your mom?” he asked, and she knew without turning that his eyes would be turning the colour of the sky on a warm day, rather than the colour of the sea on a spring one. Annie shrugged.

“I speak to you,” she said. “That’s all.”

“It’s not healthy.”

It’s the closest he’d come to pointing out her problems. She stared at the huge swimming pool, glimmering with silent death. “I know,” she said.

“I love you.”

(it was quietly spoken, almost lost in the slapping of the water)

“I know that too,” she replied.

Katniss & her father
My father moved through theys of we,
singing each new leaf out of each tree
(and every child was sure that spring
danced when she heard my father sing)

Yet another crossover [Pretty Little Liars] Katniss had thought, by volunteering in the Games, she could finally escape A's torments and threats. She had thought wrong.
maysilee/haymitch, once upon a time there was a fairy godmother, but the rest of the time there was none.
Doctor Who/HG crossover, Katniss & the Doctor he only takes the best
Love this, want someone to write it!
