Summary: “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.
Why I chose this fic: The author’s descriptive language is so detailed I can taste the food in the story.
Summary: My father would be turning over in his grave if he knew I was on my way
to Victor’s Village for a job interview. Although, if it weren’t for my
father being in the grave, he’d still be working, my mother would still
be functioning, and my sister and I wouldn’t have lived for years on the
edge of complete starvation. As it is, he’s gone, my mother’s gone, and
it’s all up to me.
Why I chose this fic: Once again Katniss is selfless as she works at a risque club to provide for Prim. At this club she meets bodyguard Peeta and sexy times happen.
Summary: Katniss and Peeta play along with the Capitol’s wishes and marry within a
year after the 74th Hunger Games. The only thing they refuse to do is
have children. At the 91st Hunger Games they find out that Snow can
still punish them, even without children of their own.
Why I chose this fic: This story is what happens if Snow is still is in power and Everlark don’t have kids: Peeta’s nephew is reaped into the games. The author does a great job writing in the past and present.
