    Summary

    The birds whistle through the trees like dive-bombers. One, two, three; one, two, three. They mark the passing of seconds like a conductor and their baton; whiz, whiz, whiz; whiz, whiz, whiz; the branches rustle as their wings catch on the edges of leaves. Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh; whiz, whiz, whiz. They keep ¾ time in the silence of morning.
    Their chirping whistles echo against the boughs of the pines. It forms a sort of peaceful chorus against the occasional breath of wind, the distant sound of rushing water and the resonant silence.
    And so Gale waits, on the platform.

    Summary

    Artemisia grins, slow and creeping like the spread of fresh blood across the floor. "Oh mentor, I think I like you."

    Lyme actually laughs, using the burst of sound to chase away the last of the demons clawing at her skull. "Good. I chose you because --" I saw myself, because everyone else had given up on you, because you'd given up on yourself, because I know you're more than this -- "I knew you could do this, and you're going to prove me right."

    District 2 Victor Lyme, two years fresh from the Arena, gets her first tribute to mentor. Her vow to remain aloof to avoid getting attached lasts until she finds Artemisia: wicked, irreverent, blase and a little unhinged, whose childhood photos showed bruises her Games training never put there.

    The day Artemisia volunteers, the male tribute from District 6 reveals a girlfriend back home with a baby on the way. The tragic story sweeps the Capitol by storm, and it seems like the ending to these Games is already written. Lyme has to change the narrative, convince her suspicious tribute to trust her, and -- if Artemisia wins -- figure out how to piece the half-mad Victor back together.

    Summary

    "He looks good and mean."
    "l don't know... he's pretty sweet."
    "You can make any dog mean."

    Cato is a big dumb boy with big dumb hands and a big dumb brain. His parents ignore him, his teachers sigh at him, and school is hard and sitting still is hard and he's not good at anything. Except at the Centre, where he doesn't have to read or sit and the trainers give him cookies and no one yells at him for being stupid or loud or clumsy. At the Centre there's only one thing Cato needs to do for grownups to like him, and lucky for him, it's easy.

    Summary

    I’m on top of the world
    Waiting on this for a while now
    Paying my dues to the dirt
    I’ve been waiting to smile
    Been holding it in for a while
    Take you with me if I can
    Been dreaming of this since a child

    --------------------

    Late fall is nice every year, the weather cooling off from the inside of a dog's mouth heat of summer, still far away enough from the madness that is the Victory Tour, but this year it's special. This year Brutus gets something he hasn't seen since 52; this year, late fall means a Victor tapering off his meds, the haze of mood stabilizers and nightmare drugs burning away to reveal a bright-eyed, curious kid who just figured out he's got the rest of his life to live.

    Brutus has pulled himself a second Victor, but mentoring doesn't end with the trumpets. The best part is helping them decide the person they want to become after they wash away the blood.

    Summary

    Magnolia had grown up West Seam, poorest of the poor down at the bottom of the hill, with all that implied. It meant no grandfolks to claim because most Westers were of community home stock, three siblings dead too young for her to know them, her pa slowly coughing up his lungs in sticky black chunks, and a ma whose thin and tired body finally gave out with a last unexpected baby when she was fourteen. It meant too little of everything—coal, soap, fabric, food, hope.

    A "what if" AU regarding the fate of Haymitch's family.

    Summary

    I am trying to see

    This is not where I should be
    I am trying to believe

    "...Brutus, a volunteer from District 2, who must be at least forty and apparently can't wait to get back in the arena..."

    When the Victor Games are announced, District 2 must send its heroes along with the rest of them. Brutus hopes doing his duty will silence the voices telling him this is wrong; Enobaria wants to burn the traitor Mockingjay for bringing this on people who only ever followed orders. Lyme needs to make it through without stabbing President Snow in the eye.

    Pre-AU. Complete.

    Summary

    She doesn't want to win anymore but she can't afford otherwise, and anyway, she's too good to do anything else. Put a weapon in her hand and no one can stop her, and they don't train the girls in One to lose.

    Amber is a pretty girl who's murder with a mace; there's almost no way she can lose. The problem is, she knows what happens to the girls from District One, and winning the Hunger Games only means another war that never ends. But what do you do when you've never known anything else?

    Summary

    And though you’re dead and gone believe me
    Your memory will carry on
    We’ll carry on

    ---------------------------------------------

    "I get attached, I know. And then it rips my heart out and Enobaria accuses me of doing it on purpose so I can steal you away for a month while you stop me from getting on a train and burning things down. I know. But I can't stop."

    The good thing about being a Career mentor is you get to choose your tribute; the downside to being a Career mentor is you get to choose your tribute. The girl Lyme picks for the 73rd is familiar to her, too, but not because she's met her before. Not exactly.

    Summary

    "Do all tributes get to do this?" asks Feather. "Once you accept the bid? Is this normal?"

    Max and Chrysalis exchange a look, and both draw a measured breath before Max answers. "No," he says. "The circumstances are - out of the ordinary."

     

    In a time of unrest, two trainees from District One are allowed to visit District Two's Center, in order to strengthen the interdistrict alliance.

    Devon turns back to the boy and says, "What's your name, so I can remember when you win?"

    The boy's face goes proud, chin up and eyes set. "It's Felix. Felix Hunter."

    "That's a good name," Devon says with a nod. "Okay, Felix Hunter, I'll remember you."

    Ten years after a routine PR appearance at an elementary school, District Two mentor Devon is choosing this year's tribute from the top candidates when a familiar face crosses his desk.

    Summary

    "No," Nero says again, not looking up from the gauze he's affixing around her wrist.

    "No what?" Lyme demands. "I didn't do anything!"

    "No whatever you're thinking, little girl, because I know your faces and that's not a good one." Nero raises an eyebrow. "Prove me wrong."

    Before rebel and renegade, between victor and mentor, Lyme was in recovery: angry, bitter, confused and lost, a trained killer without a purpose. Nero, her mentor, has his work cut out for him -- especially since not all ghosts come from the Arena.

    Summary

    "It's my leg that's broken, not my hands," Brutus grumbles, snatching the beer away and downing half of it in one go.

    "I just want to make sure you're okay," Lyme says, patting his other knee. "Plus I owe you for that time I got the flu and you kept asking if it was possible to get pregnant from pretty boys letting me fuck them."

    Brutus falls down a mountain and hauls himself back on a broken leg, because A Man Does Not Ask For Help. Lyme's gonna make him wish he just picked up the damn phone.
