Challenge list
Whoa, I really got confused on my list! I had one challenge listed twice, which I did notice and added the last since I said there'd be ten. I didn't notice until I was doing this list that one person got two fics (I normally don't, but you know... good challenges!). And I just got all kinds of confused where things went. If I do different categories again, remind me to ask for them in different posts! :D

Alternate Universe
  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 (As Happens Sometimes)
  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 (Kiss or Kill)
  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 (Smart Decisions)
  4. Katniss and Peeta as mentors in an AU where there was no rebellion. yalumesse (Sometimes Q)
  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 (Dead Victors)
  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 (Ghost Gulf)
  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 (Baby Brother)
  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 (Allies)
  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 (Blip 12M2)


Past-fic
  1. Mags trying to figure out mentoring when there were so few mentors to learn from for upupa_epops (A Little Bit of Hardness Helps)
  2. Something from a young Daughter please for torturedbabycow (What You Have To Do)
  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 (Naïve)
  4. Could you flesh the Jewishness of district 8 out a bit? Perhaps an origin story?for karintheswede(Strangers)
  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 (Grace)
  6. What triggered the first Rebellion (the one that resulted in the HG to begin with)? for vesta_aurelia (Neighbors)
  7. The Daughters of the Founding try (and succeed?)doing some good. Maybe including some talk about Panem's history? :) for Anon (The Course of Human Events)
  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 (Rebels)
  9. I would love to read something involving Chaff as he's recovering from his games, and/or beginning to mentor. for Anon (Strategy)


Canon
  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 (Eleven Point Two Seconds)
  2. I'd love to see something from Wiress' POV, either during her games, or maybe mentoring a nearly-successful tribute for maraudercat (Making Things)
  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(On Red Rock)
  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 (Intelligence)
  5. I'd love to see you write an example of Bad Fannick Fic from the height of the Finnick Odair craze! for Anon (Fate's Surpsie)
  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 (Lonely)
  7. I'm curious about Jack and Lindens first meeting after Jacks Games. for sousha (What To Talk About)
  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 (Learning to Walk)
  9. 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 princesselwen (Staying the Course)
  10. 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 (Support)

I always love seeing your take on younger versions of familiar characters, whether it was your young marauders in the Potterverse or younger victors in the HG-verse. You do such a good job with unique voices and picking up on little things that add up to big decisions/personalities later on--those character insights never get old. Looking back at the original post--did you end up choosing a past fic to expand? I'm really curious about what happened between Seeder's first ballet class and Chaff's reaping.

I'd love know which ones people were that into. Not many comments this time around!

Of the past ones, the one I was most interested in didn't get much interest from readers -- the one about the beginning of the Dark Days rebellion.

I've been absolute pants at commenting, so it's my own fault, but I would love love LOVE more of that!

I have to second how fantastic that particular challenge was. I had a monster fic due for one of the holiday fests, which completely ate my free time in a way I definitely hadn't anticipated when I thought it would be, oh, maybe 10k instead of over 20. I have every intention of going back and commenting on my favorite of these, now that I have some breathing room. But, since this one was already mentioned: you wrote Angus!!! I've been wanting to know more about Angus since Bazil's dedication in the dictionary. And he was awesome; I love how you portrayed, with both Angus and the ancestor of Butterfly's how certain traits just keep showing up in families. The way they spoke and thought, you could just *feel* that they were the ancestors to the modern HG characters. (I loved how practical and brilliant Angus was; I could never get enough of your Abernathy family)

I know there are other things that're actual nuances of the fic I want to comment on--I have notes on all my favs of this list--, but it's insanely late on my end, so I'll have to give a proper comment on the post within the next couple of days; just had to mention the familial similarities now because that was the thing that's continued to make me most gleeful about that particular piece.

Many, Many Thanks

For all of these stories, and particularly the one I requested. My real life has been crazy the past few weeks (I had my second kid) so I haven't been commenting as assiduously as I should, but I've been reading as faithfully as ever and appreciating all of your creativity, as per usual.
