safe with peeta

The Braves - Chapter 1.

Today is a very special day.

It’s @titaniasfics birthday.

Everybody knows what she did for the fandom, how she helped, beta-ed, encouraged so many of us, how she believed in us, every single day.

So today, please, let’s join into celebrating her.

My dear C, here is for you … the WW2 story I told you about.

@akai-echo just surpassed herself with the banner (it’s so perfect !!!) and @dandelion-sunset did the beta-ing part :)


Un très joyeux anniversaire !!!

With love!

THE BRAVES

Chapter 1.

“God not only plays dice, he also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen.” Stephen Hawkings.

April 1942, Panem, France.

Rain was falling heavily on the trees, clicking on the roofs, echoing in the streets of the town, soaking the man’s shirt.

But he couldn’t move.

One single move, and the sentinel standing closeby would undoubtedly see him.

He just couldn’t get caught.

There were barely two hundred meters left to reach Peeta’s house, to get to the safety of his home. Two hundred meters, but they were always the longest and most dangerous.

Trigger warnings: Logging operations? Heights? The mating habits of quail?

A/N: Happy birthday! I hope all of your birthday wishes come true! Never-ending gratitude to @xerxia31 for helping in every way possible.


Peeta hunkered down in his chair, swiveling away from the opening of his cubicle. He had two immediate problems; his editor was looking for him and he was hungover. Again. Plutarch Heavensbee was hard to take on a normal day, but with a blazing headache and already sour stomach, Peeta feared the consequences of a run in this morning.

“Damn,” he muttered, sucking a sharp whistling breath as he burned his tongue on his scaldingly hot coffee. Why did the little kiosk in the entryway always insist on making horribly weak, but ridiculously hot coffee? Maybe a better question was why he continued to buy it. But every time he walked into the chrome and marble opulence of the Capital Media Corps foyer, with its twenty stories of frantically busy, hungry machine of information and commerce looming above him, he felt like an imposter. He felt like every silk-shirted woman in her clackity-clacking heels determinedly running to the next important story, each shiny-shoed, cuff-linked man barking into his cell phone that he “needed it yesterday, dammit!” could tell he didn’t really belong there. That he was a small-town boy from District 12 who still dreamt of his parent’s bakery, cinnamon and dill-scented tendrils curling through his dreams.

Happy birthday, pagedancer87!

Author’s note: In all honesty, the first thing that came to mind with body swapping was Charmed. There’s an episode where Piper and Leo have their powers swapped by their unborn baby when they are fighting. So that was the original inspiration. I hope it brings you heaps of joy on your birthday! Many thanks to @writingbutunpublished for reminding me of more details of that episode, helping me come up with this concept, and helping smooth it all out in the end.

I slowly open my eyes, feeling the pressure on my chest. It’s odd because I’m usually the one stretched over Peeta.

And then I see the dark hair. Not blonde.

“What—” I cut off before I can say anything else. It was deeper than my own voice. But it came from my mouth.

The head on my chest stirs and looks up at me.

With my eyes.

The Braves - Chapter 3

Here it is … the third chapter of this WW2 story…

My deepest thanks to the awesome @dandelion-sunset for her beta skills, and to the fabulous @akai-echo for the banner she made for this story. My friends, you are incredible.


Of course, feedback is more than welcome …

Here on FFN // AO3

 
 

Morning came way too soon for Peeta, as it always did after his nightly travels on the other side of the Demarcation lines. He really hoped his proteges would make it to Portugal safely, in order to have safe passage to free lands.

He needed a coffee.

A real one. Not that chickoree or the roasted barley they were now forced to use, drinking it as if nothing had changed in their world, when so much had.

Just like any other day, he would have to pretend. Blame the nightmares that still plagued him for the circles under his eyes, pretend everything was right in a country, in a world gone crazy.

I can’t believe you didn’t rescue Peeta.
I know,” he replies.
There’s a sense of incompleteness. And not because he hasn’t apologized. But because we were a team. We had a deal to keep Peeta safe. A drunken, unrealistic deal made in the dark of night, but a deal just the same. And in my heart of hearts, I know we both failed.

I went down my review history to the very beginning, when I first started reading fanfic. These were the first fics I read, the ones that made such an impact on me as a writer and fangirl. I have others but these stood out to me because they are the ones that drew me into writing. 

I’ve read so many more. I will likely make other posts! (Fun fact - Madam Beth’s When the Red X is on the Door is the first fic I ever beta’d for :) ) 

Links featured below are for fanfiction.net.

Clockwise from top:

Not in Our Favor (twilightcakes) -  Katniss thinks she had found her happily ever after with Peeta, but when a hunting accident lands her in the hospital, she wakes up discovers she has no idea who he is. Her memories of life for the last two years are all blurry, but she does however remember Gale. Will the baker that seems to be her polar opposite be able to win her over twice?

Fae (HGRomance) -  When they were children, he stole her heart. But then he vanished and she never saw him again. Many years later, Katniss finds a portal into an enchanted and dangerous forest, guarded by a fae boy who seems vaguely familiar.

When the Red X is on the Door (Madam Beth) -  Post Mockingjay. Katniss and Peeta rebuild their relationship while trying to deal with the trauma of having been through the horrors of their lives since being reaped into the Hunger Games. They are there for each other when nightmares creep in the dark, but how does Katniss know when it is not safe for Peeta to be near her because of his hijacking? When the red X is on the door.

When the Moon Fell in Love with the Sun (Mejhiren) -  “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.” Peeta Mellark, winner of the 74th Hunger Games, returns from his Victory Tour to make the starving Everdeens an offer they can’t refuse. Canon divergent, based on the fairy tale “East of the Sun and West of the Moon.”

On The Hogwarts Houses

In my opinion, being a Gryffindor isn’t only about being brave - just like being smart, kind or ambitious doesn’t make you a Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin. It’s also about what defines you and what you want to define you. What’s important to you.

Hermione for example is smart and goddamn ambitious but she uses all this out of Gryffindor reasons - and she really is not a Ravenclaw, like, at all. Her main goal is to do what is right - or rather what she believes is right. Gryffindors have a black-white mindset, they are sure about their beliefs, they are righteous. They barely question themselves. And because of this they NEED to be brave to withstand the world around them and actually act on their beliefs. Bravery isn’t a given trait of a Gryffindor - it’s a needed one. It’s something they most value because they need it.

A Ravenclaw questions.

jroseley  asked:

Drabble prompts: Katniss and Peeta loading a moving truck. They have different definitions of a safe load. Please.

“Dammit, Peeta, stop playing Tetris! We can’t stay in the middle of the road forever.”

Katniss had been watching her boyfriend carefully put each and everyone of her cartons in the truck they had rented. With Peeta, though, moving made it to the next level. Every single piece of furniture or every case had to be placed cautiously, in order to perfectly fit with the rest.

In short, watching him was like watching a giant, live game of Tetris.

Which took forever, too.

To Katniss’s despair.

“We won’t be there forever. We’ll gain so much time when we’ll unload…”

“We should just throw the cases in!” she grumbled, not convinced at all that so much time would be saved.

“Wouldn’t be safe, love.” Of course it would be, she thought. She had nothing of value, most of her possessions coming directly from Ikea.

Another idea formed in her brain. She smiled wickedly, as she approached him, to whispere in his ear.

“The sooner we’re in our house, the sooner we can start christening the kitchen counters. Or the shower. Or the rest of the house….”

Peeta stopped his move, turned to look at her, then at the rest of the crates.

“Pass me the rest of the cartons. We have a deadline.”

They were home forty two minutes later.


Here it is, @jroseley ! unbeta-ed, all mistakes are mine :) hope you will like it!

Tennis Shoes, Chapter 4

Summary:  In honor of 4/20, a fic with Katniss and Gale stumbling into growing pot before finding they’re completely out of their depth. Seeds are sown (pun intended) for Everlark. The story can be found on AO3.

Chapter summary:  Katniss and Gale turn to Haymitch for help with the threat to their business. Even though she’s trying to protect Peeta by keeping him out of her messy life, Katniss can’t seem to maintain any distance from her favorite baker. Gale throws his annual Solstice party and Katniss accidentally (on purpose) asks Peeta to be her date.

A/N: Hi! I can’t believe it has been a year since I posted (then completely neglected) this story. In honor of four-twenty, I got my act together to update. I hope you enjoy this chapter.


That evening, Gale and I met Haymitch at the diviest dive bar in the Seam, and that was seriously saying something. Despite their low standards in cleanliness, Gale still had to bribe the bouncer to let us in. In true Seam fashion, underaged “kids” were welcome to grow and sell, and in this case bargain with, weed, but not necessarily enter a bar. 

As I nervously rolled my foot back and forth, sticking and unsticking my Chuck Taylors from the floor, Gale told Haymitch the whole story. At one point Gale leaned over and pressed his palm against my knee to stop my compulsive bouncing, so I used my feet to gather a small pile of peanut shells on which I could perch my the toes of my shoes . Gale was hunched over with his elbows on the filthy table and he kept pulling the sleeves of his hoodie down over his hands, but I couldn’t tell if it was a cleanliness issue or a nervous tic. Either way, I was reminded of him as a gawky fourteen-year-old. And, peeking at Haymitch grudgingly from the corner of my eye, I was struck by the way Gale and I both bristle at and crave a certain type of man, dare I say, a father figure.

When Gale had reached the end of his story, Haymitch knocked back the rest of the filthy glass of amber liquid that he had been swirling and trained his bloodshot, eagle-eyes on me. “So how’s the bakery gig, Sweetheart?”

Scowling at the casual use of “sweetheart”, I cleared my throat and said, “Good. It’s fine.”

He nodded slowly and asked, “And the boy?”

I felt my cheeks flush, but held his gaze. “Which boy? There are several.” Somehow, I knew we were talking about Peeta. In my flustered state, I defaulted to surly and demanded, “What do you care?”

The Signs As Mockingjay Quotes
  • Aries: "All the people and things you loved or cared about almost cease to excist. The pink sky and the monsters in the jungle and the tributes who want your blood become your final reality, the only one that ever mattered. As bad as it makes you feel, you're going to have to do some killing, because in the arena, you only get one wish. And it's very costly."
  • Taurus: "Now why don't we ask the guards to take me back to my quarters so I can build another hundred card houses?"
  • Gemini: "There won't be enough of us left to keep going. If everybody doesn't lay down their weapons - and I mean, as in very soon - it's all over anyway."
  • Cancer: "I know that Finnick can't focus on anything in 13 because he's trying so hard to see what's happening in the Capitol to Annie, the mad girl from his district who's the only person on earth he loves."
  • Leo: "Do it. Now's the time. You could ask for the moon and they'd have to find some way to get it."
  • Virgo: "Perhaps the capitol's leaders thought that without help, 13 would die off on its own. It almost did a few times, but it always managed to pull through due to strict sharing of resources, strenuous discipline and constant vigilance against any further attacks from the Capitol."
  • Libra: "Time and tragedy have forced her to grow too quickly, at least for my taste, into a young woman who stitches bleeding wounds and knows our mother can hear only so much."
  • Scorpio: "If he wants me broken, then I will have to be whole."
  • Sagittarius: "When that wire was cut, everything just went insane. I can only remember bits and pieces. Trying to find her. Watching Brutus kill Chaff. Killing Brutus myself. I know she was calling my name. Then the lightning bolt hit the tree, and the force field around the area . . . blew out."
  • Capricorn: "I want everyone watching - whether you're on the Capitol or rebel side - to stop for just a moment and think about what this war could mean. For human beings. We almost went extinct fighting one another before. Now our numbers are even fewer. Our conditions more tenuous. Is this really what we want to do? Kill ourselves off completely? In the hopes that - what? Some decent species will inherit the smoking remains of the earth?"
  • Aquarius: "Katniss, I don't think you understand how important you are to the cause. Important people usually get what they want. If you want to keep Peeta safe from the rebels, you can."
  • Pisces: "He left me a rose! I want to scream, but it's not information I'm sure I should share with someone like Plutarch looking on. First of all, because it will make me sound crazy. Like I either imagined it, which is quite possible, or I'm overreacting, which will buy me a trip bak to the drug-induced dreamland I'm trying so hard to escape."
  • * Well I tried hahaha, oh and this is based on sun signs and well some of my most wonderful quotes. Can't promise if this is accurate sorry xo*

everlark + sleeping

“It feels like such a luxury, sleeping with Peeta again. I didn’t realize until now how starved I’ve been for human closeness. For the feel of him beside me in the darkness. I wish I hadn’t wasted the last couple of nights shutting him out. I sink down into sleep, enveloped in his warmth, and when I open my eyes again, daylight’s streaming through the windows.”
