Okay, a little different this time. I want to kind of spread out the topics. And I want to not write future-fic, because I'm tired of getting derailed. ;p

So, in keeping with the the 27 chapter theme, I'll do 27, but in three categories, first nine of each. As it was last time, in thanks for all the misplaced definite and indefinite articles, and bad punctuation, and silly typos that she found, queen_bellatrix gets the first one, in whichever category she'd like it to be.

(ETA: Bookverse, not movieverse.)

CLOSED.

I think my eyes skipped over a couple of canon requests before putting in the last one. I'll check when I get to the canon ones, and if so, I'll add those in.

Past-fic (anything before Haymitch's Games)
  1. Mags trying to figure out mentoring when there were so few mentors to learn from for upupa_epops
  2. Something from a young Daughter please for torturedbabycow
  3. how about something on the breakaway of District 13 -- maybe the negotiations/threats that got Snow to agree to it, or how the latter reacted. for snorkackcatcher
  4. Could you flesh the Jewishness of district 8 out a bit? Perhaps an origin story? for karintheswede
  5. May I have something about a victor who's more involved in her/his home district? Am I right in thinking a few of them volunteer in the schools and get to know the children? for Anon
  6. What triggered the first Rebellion (the one that resulted in the HG to begin with)? for vesta_aurelia
  7. The Daughters of the Founding try (and succeed?)doing some good. Maybe including some talk about Panem's history? :) for Anon
  8. Some more on the proto-rebellion in 2. Or anything about Lyme in those days - before, during or after her Games. I liked someone else's idea about the origin of Careers - Career psychology fascinates me. for Anon
  9. I would love to read something involving Chaff as he's recovering from his games, and/or beginning to mentor. For Anon


Canon (per my stories - from Haymitch's Games to the end of war, not including epilogue and pre-epilogue stuff)
  1. Something from Effie's point of view after she's taken at the end of The Golden Mean, without her pills to alter her emotions, what does she think about the entire rebel situation? for mariachillin
  2. I'd love to see something from Wiress' POV, either during her games, or maybe mentoring a nearly-successful tribute for maraudercat
  3. Finnick and Johanna discussing Haymitch and Effie sometime before the 75th. Or just them discussing Haymitch, doesn't have to be Effie. for beceh
  4. The final days of Peacekeepers Beckett, Cray, and Thread. Do any of them get a gold watch and a pension, or is it a lead slug and a shallow grave? for Tom
  5. I'd love to see you write an example of Bad Fannick Fic from the height of the Finnick Odair craze! for Anon
  6. I'd love to see the other Victors' reactions to Effie's, uh, treatment at the end of These Are the Names. She seems to have become friendly with quite a few of them. for rosaxx50
  7. I'm curious about Jack and Lindens first meeting after Jacks Games. for sousha
  8. I'd be interested in seeing something with Mags and Carolyn. When did they meet? When did Mags figure out who Carolyn was? for Anon
  9. I know that Katniss does not have a good relationship with her mother. However, she (Katniss) did such a good job of Healing on several occasions with very basic supplies, etc. I'd like to see Ruth tell her how well she did and how proud it made her. for Sara Libby
  10. Something from the perspective of one of the other Star Squad members, the soldiers from 13. What was it like growing up in 13, and what was their perspective on the war? for princesselwin


AU (no real restrictions)

  1. I just have to ask for some Haymitch/Gia if she hadn't had to leave--naturally when he's older-- , maybe framed by/including a snipet/reading from one of those fantastic detective novels about the detective struggling with drinking while showing up the Peacekeepers you mentioned in one of your Haymitch AUs since we know from HT and TLT that they both love mysteries. for queen_bellatrix
  2. I'd be very curious to see a moment from an AU of your 'verse where Maysilee lived and Haymitch died. What kind of victor does she make (and who gets sacrificed)? for orichalcum
  3. I would absolutely to see an AU where Haymitch said "Yes" when Mimi asked him if he loved her. I know it will probably end horribly, but damn it, I still want to know. for sonetka
  4. Katniss and Peeta as mentors in an AU where there was no rebellion. yalumesse
  5. What if Haymitch or one of the other victors (other than Peeta) had found out about Caesar being a Victor before his death? for danel4d
  6. Finnick Odair survives the events of Mockingjay. What is his reaction to Coin's death, and what place do he and Annie find in a post-war Panem? for princesselwen
  7. I'd love an AU where someone in Peeta's family actually lives, please. How do they react to his capture and subsequent crazy? Does he ever get something like closure? for redrikki
  8. One where Prim isn't reaped for the 74th games? I'm curious as to how you think Peeta would've handled the games sans Katniss. for Robin
  9. Haymitch as a rebellious Gamemaker (either in the sense of involved with the canonical Rebellion or not) and involved with Effie (married or not, aware of Haymitch's rebellious sympathies and/or activities or not)? for anon



Also, I'm thinking about doing a collection of these (under these categories); they won't necessarily all be this batch. I just want to pick some good ones that haven't been at the other archives. If there's a ficlet from the past that you think would be good for expansion to a ~4000 word story, let me know which one and why.

So I was wondering if you could do one on movieverse Haymitch/Effie? Just a scene from Mockingjay Part 1 since they have her in District 13 with him. If not, could I ask for something else?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: December 10th, 2014 04:48 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't really do movie stuff per se (all my stuff's in the same verse, and Effie being separate from Haymitch was a pretty big deal in NP!). So yeah, go ahead, ask for something else!

Thank you so much!

Canon

The final days of Peacekeepers Beckett, Cray, and Thread. Do any of them get a gold watch and a pension, or is it a lead slug and a shallow grave?

Re: Canon

Well, Thread probably gets a big old fire bomb in the face for his troubles, along with the rest of Twelve. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. (Not buying the movie-verse, where the people had the warning of the Peacekeepers leaving; I'm assuming the firebombs just started falling). I'll get the others. (Both, if I can fit them into one.)

I'd love to see you write an example of Bad Fannick Fic from the height of the Finnick Odair craze!

Not sure if it's too close to yalumesse's, but I remember during The Golden Mean, you had Peeta and Haymitch worry that Snow would contrive things to make Katniss mentor Prim in the Quarter Quell.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: December 10th, 2014 06:40 am (UTC) (Link)
I actually did that one already, though not in Katniss's POV. Did you want that 'verse in another POV?

I'm always full of pre-series fic prompts, so I'm just going to give as many as I can think of, for you to pick and choose, okay?

- How did the Careers come to be? (It's my headcanon that Mags invented Careers, but I'll take anything!)

- The First Games. Who was Reaped? How were they forced to fight? Who won? What were they like? How were those Games different from what we know from canon?

- Mags as a tribute. Mags' reaction to first Reapings (that she must remember). Mags trying to figure out mentoring when there were so few mentors to learn from.

- anything Duronda-centric

- The First Quarter Quell. I know you already had Charlie narrate it, but how about the vote-Reaping in other districts? Who was voted in in Career districts? Who was voted in in 12? How did mentors deal with voted-in tributes?

I'm sorry for dropping them all on you, but I figured, with the scope being so broad, it'd be better to list everything I'm craving, and ask you to choose whichever you feel like writing.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: December 10th, 2014 07:15 am (UTC) (Link)
I did the first Games one, very briefly, if you're interested.

I think I'll grab a Mags one, from the rest.
torturedbabycow From: torturedbabycow Date: December 10th, 2014 07:35 am (UTC) (Link)
Oooh, past-fic is wide open!

Something from a young Daughter please. (I'll leave it pretty general, because I suspect you have some nifty backstories in mind for all that already.) Since I can't ask for future-fic of where they all ended up afterwards. :P
snorkackcatcher From: snorkackcatcher Date: December 10th, 2014 07:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Not sure if this counts as AU or just crack, but: Cato is secretly a rebellion sympathiser who "gets" the possibilities of the Peeta/Katniss story, and in the arena he's playing a Plutarch-like double game.

Or if that's too weird (!), how about something on the breakaway of District 13 -- maybe the negotiations/threats that got Snow to agree to it, or how the latter reacted.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: December 10th, 2014 07:57 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm going to go with the second, because I just don't feel like I have a good grasp on Cato.
karintheswede From: karintheswede Date: December 10th, 2014 08:04 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I'm in time for one of these!

I find the way you have different religions influencing the various districts very interesting, could you flesh the Jewishness of district 8 out a bit? Perhaps an origin story?
sousha From: sousha Date: December 10th, 2014 10:37 am (UTC) (Link)
*waves* Hi, new fan here. I'm currently reading my way through your amazing fics, almost finished with "These are the Names" and I'm curious about Jack and Lindens first meeting after Jacks Games.
