|A medley of fics!|
Bang by She's Classy
Summary: I hate those damn recordings. After all, it's become obvious that this is all harder on me than it is on him.
Review: Bang is an intense AU fic - a really memorable, almost chilling read. The emotive language is powerful and really carries the fic. Character death and tragedy lie within.
Pleasure To Burn by Howlynn
Summary: Katniss and Cinna may have shared more than ability to keep cool in the face of danger. They may have shared burning flames that were more than symbolic.
Review: Howlynn does such a wonderful job making readers believe this pairing; the setting and plot is fab to read.
The Lucky Ones by Ruby Sword
Summary: Everyone knows it's not easy growing up poor in District 12, but does the mayor's daughter really have it any easier? All Madge Undersee wants is a real friend, and to prove she's more than just a girl in a pretty dress.
Review: One of the best Gadge fics I've read. Ruby Sword's characterisation of Gale is spot on - and the chemistry between the two lead characters is enticing.
Learning To Swim by imaginarycircus
Summary: Peeta and Katniss grow back together. Takes place at and after the end of Mockingjay.
Review: This lengthy o/s contains one of the best Katniss-and-Peeta's-first-time sex scenes I've ever read. It's a perfect read, sexy and cute at the same time.
Incidentally, Kiddo, Sweet Dreams by Adreus
Summary: Because in the end, it's down to what you get and what you don't, and which side outweighs the other.
Review: I heart this fic so much, it's so lovely and melancholy and a perfect continuation of the tone at the end of Mockingjay.
Five Loaves of Bread: Capitol Pastries by aimmyarrowshigh
Ships: Katniss/Peeta, Peeta/Cinna
Summary: The only person who wins the Hunger Games is Snow, and you know it. You gave up happy when you kept playing Snow's games.
Review: This is an amazing, inspired and imagintive fic. V takes this AU story world and its characters to a decadent, grimy extreme.
Hold On To What You Believe by hgfan1111
Ships: Katniss/Peeta, Katniss/Gale, Katniss/Finnick
Summary: Katniss Everdeen is the Victor, but the price that comes with that title may be too high for her to pay.
Review: This author wonderfully explores the darker side to being a Victor in a tragic AU world. Character death inside.
