consider: post-mockingjay, annie and finnick’s son has a “bring your dad” day coming up at school. since his biological father passed away before he was born, he asks johanna to go with him to school on that day. johanna, who’s spent a lot of time in district four helping raise annie’s son, is absolutely moved and honored, and she gladly agrees to go as his dad.

YA LIT MEME: Eigth OTPs.

↳  THE HUNGER GAMES; Finnick Odair and Annie Cresta. [7/8]

And suddenly, it’s as if there’s no one in the world but these two, crashing through space to reach each other. They collide, enfold, lose their balance, and slam against a wall, where they stay. Clinging into one being. Indivisible.
A pang of jealousy hits me. Not for either Finnick or Annie but for their certainty. No one seeing them could doubt their love.

  • My OTP: *exists*
  • Me: *goes in to cardiac arrest* *rants about how 'they deserve all the happiness in the world' in the afterlife* *nearly gets kicked out of the purgatory for excessive chattiness*

Give me Finnick returning from the war and kissing his wife first on the lips and then on the stomach

Give me Finnick and Annie cuddled up at home at night, talking about baby names and all the possibilities for their little family

Give me Annie ecstatically yelling for Finnick to come look in the mirror with her because she finally can see a baby bump

Give me Finnick buying too many stuffed animals and baby toys for the nursery and Annie banning him from going to the store on his own when she sees all the receipts

Give me Annie getting crazy intense sugar cravings and Finnick calling up Peeta desperately asking for baked goods because Annie NEEDS THEM NOW 

Give me Annie telling Finnick whenever the baby is kicking so he can put his hands on her tummy to feel it

Give me Finnick worrying about not being a good father because of his past and Annie rolling her eyes while she tells him about all the wonderful things he’s done for her and the baby

Give me Annie worrying about not being a good mother because of her mental illness and Finnick reminding her that she’s been recovering in leaps and bounds ever since the war ended and that he knows she’ll be perfect

Give me Annie absentmindedly singing lullabies with her hands on her stomach while Finnick watches with a grin on his face because he thinks it’s beautiful

Give me Annie excitedly arranging little outfits for the baby, complete with sets of little baby booties

Give me Finnick growing increasingly anxious about Annie and the baby, always hovering by Annie during the day and reaching for the phone to call the hospital whenever she fidgets uncomfortably and Annie needing to stop him from panicking and dragging her to the hospital too soon

Give me Finnick surrounding Annie with books to read and snacks to eat and notebooks for her to write in when she’s on bed rest

Give me Annie tying knots to distract herself while she’s in labor while Finnick tells her stories and strokes her hair

Give me Finnick holding his son for the first time, too overcome with joy to speak, leaning against Annie’s shoulder and kissing her temple every few minutes because he’s so happy to have the two people he loves most together and safe and happy

Give me Finnick carrying his baby around when he’s a few days old, his muscled arms looking massive around such a tiny baby 

Give me Annie kissing the baby’s forehead and cheeks and nose and tiny earlobes and fingertips and toes

Give me Finnick shooting out of bed each night when the baby cries and insisting that it’s his job and Annie needs to sleep even if Finnick is always the one getting out of bed to help and is probably only running on caffeine and sugar

Give me Finnick presenting his baby to all the victors proudly and getting overly offended when Johanna makes an unnecessary comment about his absolutely perfect newborn son

Give me Annie curling up next to Finnick at night after they’ve finally gotten their son to fall asleep and telling him that she’s never been happier, and Finnick agreeing and thinking for the first time in his life that maybe all the pain the both of them went through was worth it

Give me the life that the Odairs deserved dang it Suzanne Collins 

Headcanon: Annie Cresta lived a very full life, and finally after a long long time without Finnick, she finally went home to him; but not before she got to do her life’s work of raising their son. and he looked just as perfect as she’d remembered. She went to tell him about their boy and how much he was like him, but Finnick already knew and it’s confirmed that he was with her through it all; not in the way he wanted to be, but there nonetheless.

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: Finnick Odair didn't deserve to die, he just got married and lived his entire life either fighting for his life or being sold for his body plus his wife can barely keep her sanity without him and she was pregnant and he never got to meet his son and he was always helping Katniss and especially Peeta even after he was hijacked and he got eaten by some gross slimy mutts in the end

just a reminder that annie cresta went “mad” after her district partner was beheaded…BEHEADED JUST LIKE THE WAY HER GENTLE, SWEET AND DAMAGED CINNAMON ROLL OF A HUSBAND WAS. MAKE NO MISTAKE. SUZANNE COLLINS SURE DID THINK OF THAT NOW DIDNT SHE

Odesta Fic Recs

I’ve been reading Odesta fic for more time than I care to admit to, and I’d love to discover some new things. I believe I’ve read all the well-known fics, but I’ve been looking for some less-popular but still amazing stories. Anybody care to share?

Please reblog with recommendations (or message me, and I’ll add them to my list to share with others). Let’s all find some hidden gems together!

My Recs:

Such Great Heights by bleachers  In which Finnick is rain-soaked, late, and on the cusp of something great. (Rated T)

Crescendi by turtledoves  Basically, it’s an interpretation of “she crept up on me.” Unbasically, Finnick Odair is broken beyond repair, and Annie Cresta is an enigma he really doesn’t care about until suddenly he does. Like a string of crescendi, his emotions rise unnoticed until they burst. (Rated T)

The Disremembering by infinitelyrichandbeautiful  What Finnick Odair unlearns about sex. (Rated M)

I See Who You Are by OnyxJinx  Finnick dares not protest Annie’s motives, for her ways are special and to question them would be cruel. (Rated T)

Chromatography by thewindwarns  Finnick Odair knew this: Annie loved colors and he loved Annie. (Rated G)

Underwater Graveyard by Ninazadzia  After her Games, Finnick takes Annie to his place of refuge. (Rated K+)

Daddy’s Little Girl by SabaceanBabe  Finnick was perfectly okay with baby-sitting duty; it gave him some alone time with his daughter. (Rated K+)
