Hey fellow tributes! The lovely jfka06 emailed us recently wanting to get recommended fics that involved a major switch in Catching Fire/Mockingjay: that Katniss was the one, instead of Peeta, being hijacked and tortured by the Capitol.
Having already read HalfHope's popular Hijacked, jfka06 wanted to know if there were anymore fics out there with this plotline. So, I searched and searched - and this is what I found.
At Any Cost by AlexaBones
Summary: This is my version of what would have occured had Haymitch saved Peeta at the end of Catching Fire. Katniss returns from the capitol hijacked; Peeta and Gale battle for her affection and the revolution draws near. Peeta POV.
In A Sentence: At Any Cost has a lovely measured pace that allows ample time for readers to understand how Peeta is feeling - many will appreciate this over a complete mirroring of canon elements. This was my favourite apart from Hijacked in terms of good writing.
Anything by whaddupshelbyx
Summary: Instead of rescuing Katniss, the rebels have rescued Peeta, Katniss is the one hijacked, and Peeta will do anything to get her back.
In A Sentence: Katniss' characterisation and voice is a little OOC, and the chapters are quite short, but I enjoyed Anything because it showed the hijacking from her point of view. (It's a nice short exploration.)
Anything To Get Her Back by PeetaMellark'sKatniss
Summary: My name is Peeta Mellark. I am 17 years old. I survived the hunger games twice. Katniss Everdeen, the person i love, has been captured and talken away from me, she's been hijacked and i WILL do anything to get her back.
In A Sentence: This isn't the best written fic ever, but honestly these three were the only ones I could find that totally fit the build: this author has great dialogue, nonetheless.
Caged Mockingjay by Cassidy Joleen Conner
Summary: After the arena was blown up, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark was taken by the Capital where they both endure physical and emotional torture.
In A Sentence: So, it's not quite Katniss-hijacked, but both of them are captured by the Capitol. An very unique plotline that intrigued me right away.
