When the Mooniverse
26 Dec 2016
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."

She tilts her head curiously at the sight of me, as though some exotic bird has alighted upon her doorstep. “The last time I saw your like in the Seam,” she remarks by way of greeting, “Jack Everdeen got a sweetheart, and a fiancée by week’s end.
“No,” she amends after a moment, frowning slightly. “I take that back. Your mama was the last town girl I saw here, all pink skirts and high-buttoned shoes, carrying a satchel full of pretty dresses and kerchiefs and soaps and a canary in a cage for Jack’s new bride, who ran away from home with no more than the clothes on her back.”
She regards me thoughtfully. “I don’t see a canary or a packed case, Miss Undersee,” she says. “Have you come for a sweetheart?”
The day after New Year's, Madge Undersee goes to the Hawthornes' to talk business. A parallel fic to When the Moon Fell in Love with the Sun, with references to previous chapters.
Title taken from Ch 3 of When the Moon:
I silently curse Gale as colorfully as I know how. What was he doing at the mayor’s house anyway? It's a good six months to strawberry time, and he'd have nothing else to trade.
