  1. Summary

    "The game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement. Several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired or strengthened by it, so as to become habits, ready on all occasions. For life is a kind of chess, in which we have often points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with, and in which there is a vast variety of good and ill events, that are, in some degree, the effects of prudence or the want of it." - Benjamin Franklin, The Morals of Chess, 1786

    The first stories in this series (The Poisoned Pawn Variation, The Eighth Square and The Queen's Bishop) are my version of how S4 could have happened. Though I certainly didn't expect it when I originally wrote these stories, I more or less ended up in the same place as the actual show, so from The Hedgehog Defense on, the series is Canon-Compliant.

    Summary

    We've established something of a routine, Peeta and I. Come to think of it, we've gone through several different versions since we first found our way back to District 12. Back to each other. But this one might actually stick.

    Summary

    "I don't need it," Peeta says firmly. "I don't want anything from you." And it's not true, there are things he wants from Katniss; her smile, her laugh, her warm breath on his neck, her body moving beneath his in the dark. But he doesn't want them as part of an exchange. He wants them because she wants him to have them.

    (AU - Gale dies in the Hunger Games.)

    Summary

    "Some nights she sits on the floor in front of the fire and laughs at him as he insists he must learn to braid her hair. It’s grown back, full and thick, if not as long as it once was.

     

    'You and my hair,' she says, low voice laughter laced. Peeta resists the urge to lean forward, to bury his face in her neck where he knows redolence of her scent lingers."
