A Hunger Games (Book 1) Timeline

Hi all!

About a month ago, I was inspired by an idea for creating a timeline for the HG books.   As a visual learner, I felt that something that anyone could reference easily for the details on when certain events happened.  So, I began going through the book, and what follows is a timeline based on the first book (page references are from the paperback edition).

My thanks to the always wonderful @mtk4fun and @norbertsmom for looking over and helping me correct mistakes and improve the details.  You both are the best!

So, here it is…

A small tribute to @porchwood from my heart. Thank you for all your perfect and enchanted stories, they never fail to brighten my day and make me smile. <3

Headcanons on what dating Peeta Mellark would include?

Dating Peeta Mellark would include:

  • Walking to school with him everyday as children
  • Growing up together as best friends
  • Watching him work in the bakery alongside his family
  • Stealing secret glances of his muscles while he lifted the enormous sacks of flour
  • Baking cakes with him, and ending up having adorable food fights
  • Having to confess your feelings towards him first because he’s oblivious as hell, but it turns out that he loves you too
  • Sharing cute and loving kisses all the fucking time
  • Having to say good bye to him when he leaves for the games
  • Staying up for days watching him in the games
  • Running desperately into his arms when he finally comes back after winning the games
  • Calming him down when he wakes up from nightmares, and holding him in your arms until the two of you can fall back to sleep
  • Though you may have ups and downs, at the end of the day the two of you would ABSOLUTELY love each other!

I’m coming back into focus when Caesar asks him if he has a girlfriend back home. Peeta hesitates, then gives an unconvincing shake of his head.Handsome lad like you. There must be some special girl. Come on, what’s her name?“ says Caesar.Peeta sighs. "Well, there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on her ever since I can remember. But I’m pretty sure she didn’t know I was alive until the reaping."Sounds of sympathy from the crowd. Unrequited love they can relate to.She have another fellow?” asks Caesar.I don’t know, but a lot of boys like her,“ says Peeta.So, here’s what you do. You win, you go home. She can’t turn you down then, eh?” says Caesar encouragingly.I don’t think it’s going to work out. Winning…won’t help in my case,“ says Peeta.Why ever not?” says Caesar, mystified.Peeta blushes beet red and stammers out. “Because…because…she came here with me.
