Our Fave Fics of All Time: Cindella204

Hey fellow tributes! Over the next few months we'll be bringing you segment called "Our Fave Fics of All Time, Hands Down", reviewing the fics that make our eyes glaze over in memory of such great writing or even squee in delight. If you'd like to recommend your favourite fic, drop a comment in these posts and we'll collate them too.

Today Cindella204 is reviewing her faves!

The Modern-Day AU: Bright Lights by IPunkPrincess
AU - Katniss Everdeen is a singer, working hard with her bestfriend to get signed to a record label. When she is on the road to fame, what will she leave behind? Will it be worth it?
For a very long time I thought that AU stories were...lesser fanfiction. Over time I've realized that that is definitely not the case. I started to beta-read a high school AU series by PurpleBoo on FF.N (Go read it, it's good). And then I discovered Bright Lights. And I decided that AU's could definitely be good. Her portrayal of the characters is absolutely perfect, and it's just fun all around. For a more detailed review, check out the rec I did when I crowned IPunkPrincess as the October 2012 Author of the Month.

The Backstory for Another Victor: Resistance by It's All In Your Mind
Have you ever wondered how Annie got the way she is? How she and Finnick fell in love? 
Resistance is probably the story that made me fall in love with fanfiction. This beautiful piece tells the tale of How Finnick and Annie Fell In Love, and while this is something many have done, I think It's All In Your Mind does it best. First of all, as a Finnick reader and writer I absolutely love how she writes his character. We see both sides of him, his flirty Capitol persona and his brokenness, it just the right ratio to make it absolutely real and perfect.

"It's something out of an old tale: a golden young man in a white bearskin, striking strange bargains with desperate souls on the cruelest night of winter." AU fic, based on the fairy tale "East of the Sun & West of the Moon." Peeta Mellark, winner of the 74th Hunger Games, returns from his Victory Tour to make the starving Everdeens an offer they can't refuse.
A story without Finnick! This is proof that Finnick Odair is not the only way to my heart, probably just the most prevalent one. Anyway, When the Moon Fell in Love with the Sun was already a great story before I even clicked on it because of the Panic! At The Disco reference in the title. According to Mejhiren not many people catch that, but I did, and it made my day. And then it was even better when the story was actually good. This story is a crossover with a fairy tale called "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" and her descriptive writing is beautiful. Combined with a depiction of Katniss that is different, but lovely, this piece is easily one of my favorites to read.

Next segment, Little Miss Mionie will be revealing and reviewing her faves!
