Well, I finished the big revision, so I guess it's that time again! :D

First fifteen (plus an extra for queen_bellatrix, for the nice long comments and beta-ing along the way). If you're an LJ-anon, please put on some kind of name so I know I'm doing one per person, and also to distinguish which is which.

ETA: List so far (room for one more!)
*Peeta and uncle Haymitch if he hadn't "broken up" with his friends, set anywhere in the timeline you like. I just keep wondering how different Peeta generally--which of course leads to a totally different pre-games lead up-- would have been with a third party adult support system that was outside his dysfunctional family. for queen_bellatrix

  1. Waiting to hear from PotterGirl, if she wants an alternate
  2. I've always been curious about what would've happened if Haymitch had been in the Third Quell instead of Peeta. for Lise
  3. I can't remember if you've ever shown us this, but I'd be interested to see some of Seeder's Games. for Maraudercat
  4. From the time that Snow is taken out of the greenhouse and tied to the post, to the time that Coin is shot, in both Coin's and Snow's POV. for Tom
  5. How about child Effie's POV from the scene where she got Haymitch's autograph ("To the girl carrying everything")? for golden_d
  6. What did the surviving Avoxes do after the war? for sonetka
  7. Linden. Anything. You know I love him. If I have to come up with a scenario, I'd say shopping trip with Gale. Bonus points for ribbing by Gale's brothers. for Willow-At-Work
  8. Post-war -- what are relations/problems with the out-district people like, now the barriers around the districts are gone (or genuinely there for protection, not mainly to keep the District people in), and in principle any citizen of Panem can go anywhere? for snorkackcatcher
  9. Enobaria - any time. for Aylat
  10. In The Hanging Tree, the last chapter. You had Ruth be the midwife when Peeta was born. And Danny was looking after baby Katniss along with his older two Jona and Eddie. How did this come about? What was Mir's reaction, not good I bet. for TLW
  11. Haymitch and Effie... Angsty, happy, before she gets sucked back into Capitol Dreams, after she's rescued--you choose. Something you've been wanting to explore. for Sarah
  12. Anything with Jo. I love the way you write her. Maybe either sometime between her games and the Quell, or something with her being a mom? for Christina
  13. I would love to see Haymitch and Effie visit Peeta and Katniss around the time they all have kids. Maybe just having a conversation, maybe funny, whatever you want. for Maeve
  14. I'd love to see more of carolyn\haymitch and was impressed by how different haymitch was with friends around him. (expand on "Under the Pier") for Liam
  15. You had Lyme's family wander off into the wilderness. Any chance of building on that? for Beth

dunno if you're still doing Harry Potter but I'd love to see your take on Teddy/Victoire given the recent development released by Rowling on Pottermore.

namely this:
No doubt Potter will be distressed to know that his sixteen-year-old godson Teddy Lupin – a lanky half-werewolf with bright blue hair – has been behaving in a way unbefitting of wizarding royalty since arriving on the VIP campsite. It might be asking too much that the always-busy Potter keep a tighter rein on this wild boy, who was entrusted to his care by his dying parents, but one shudders to think what will become of Master Lupin without urgent intervention. Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs Bill Weasley might like to know that their beautiful, blonde daughter Victoire seems to be attracted to any dark corner where Master Lupin happens to be lurking. The good news is both of them seem to have invented a method of breathing through their ears. I can think of no other reason how they have survived such prolonged periods of what, in my young day, was called ‘snogging.'
“Unfortunately, Master Teddy Lupin and Ms Victoire Weasley appear to be far more interested in what they are saying to each other than – I take that back. In what some may see as a somewhat belated show of parental authority, Mr Bill Weasley has swapped places with his now very sulky-looking daughter and is directing her attention to the pitch.”


Thnks

Eh, I don't really do Potter anymore (and that really doesn't fit with my Teddyverse), so if you have another? (Generally speaking, I ignore Pottermore entirely, anyway.)

Not sure if it's doable in a short story, or if it seems interesting to you, but I've always been curious about what would've happened if Haymitch had been in the Third Quell instead of Peeta.

If it doesn't interest you, then maybe something about Delly watching the beggining of the Games, right before The Final Eight? I've always been curious about that too, haha.

I'm Lise :)
I loved reading your stories, thank you so much for sharing them!

I think I can do a scene of it.

I can't remember if you've ever shown us this, but I'd be interested to see some of Seeder's Games. Otherwise, maybe something about Paylor organizing the rebels in D8

Coin and Snow -- that fateful day

From the time that Snow is taken out of the greenhouse and tied to the post, to the time that Coin is shot, in both Coin's and Snow's POV. "He who laughs last, laughs best."

Re: Coin and Snow -- that fateful day

Hmm... I generally do these in first person present -- I'll have to figure out a good way to structure that to show both POVs.

How about child Effie's POV from the scene where she got Haymitch's autograph ("To the girl carrying everything")?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: August 6th, 2015 03:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Okay. :D

What did the surviving Avoxes do after the war? I'd love an Avox POV fic if you feel like writing one!

Sounds good.

Betaing for you will always be a pleasure. :) And sorry it took me a bit to see this!

Take your pick of whichever of these tickles your muse's fancy.

1. This one's heavily based on your answers about Haymitch's district life in As Happens Sometimes. I will never turn down an expansion of that verse, but I'm also completely up for any other scenario/ship you'd like to set this in. Peeta and uncle Haymitch if he hadn't "broken up" with his friends, set anywhere in the timeline you like. I just keep wondering how different Peeta generally--which of course leads to a totally different pre-games lead up-- would have been with a third party adult support system that was outside his dysfunctional family.

2. Duronda, Effrim, and Misty in the direct aftermath of her Games/as Games culture evolved, whatever works best?

or: 3. In your last Caesar Challenge, you did that seriously cool thing where you linked it to the beginning of the second quell. I'm fascinated by the idea of the first quell victor watching the second, either during or right after the quell. So some Caesar pov of events right around then? Anything from talking to the Abernathies to what was going on off-screen with sympathetic Capitolites in EOTW/the beginning of HT. :)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: August 6th, 2015 05:28 am (UTC) (Link)
I think I'll go with the first.

Willowlistener is staying true to form

Linden. Anything. You know I love him. If I have to come up with a scenario, I'd say shopping trip with Gale. Bonus points for ribbing by Gale's brothers.

Or

Sirius the third having a GOOD day for once.

Re: Willowlistener is staying true to form

Gale and Linden shopping. That'll be fun, I think.

Post-war -- what are relations/problems with the out-district people like, now the barriers around the districts are gone (or genuinely there for protection, not mainly to keep the District people in), and in principle any citizen of Panem can go anywhere?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: August 6th, 2015 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I expect that Snow wiped out the raider settlements, but now, people can actually just go out there. I'll see what I can do with some pioneers.

Enobaria - any time.


You are so generous with these. I love reading your writing.

In The Hanging Tree, the last chapter. You had Ruth be the midwife when Peeta was born. And Danny was looking after baby Katniss along with his older two Jona and Eddie. How did this come about? What was Mir's reaction, not good I bet.

In one of your stories, you said Glen found 3 year old Peeta wandering about the seam after Mir had been harsh with him. How did this come about.

I'll get the first one.

I don't have a livejournal account. You said you needed a name, you can use TLW.

Any tag I can throw on it is fine. :D (You mean the one directly above, right?)

Haymitch and Effie

I love the way you write their relationship, and I'd love to see what more you can show me about them. Angsty, happy, before she gets sucked back into Capitol Dreams, after she's rescued--you choose. Something you've been wanting to explore.
