RICOCHET
chapter 27: shockwave


rating: most likely PG-13. nothing worse than what's in the books.
genre: adventure/suspense/drama/romance... again, pretty much what's in the books.
pairings: peeta/katniss, rory/prim... and probably others. you'll see soon.
canon/timeline: same-context AU-- this fic still happens in the same world as THG, but the actual events in the books never happened. i'm adding about five years to the characters from the age they were at the beginning of the hunger games. katniss is 21.
disclaimer: yeah, just let me go get my transfer laser and switch bodies with suzanne collins. until i find it in the mess that is my room, anything you can recognize belongs to her.

note: i've never really tried this before (and i'm sure it will eventually come back and bite me in the behind), but each chapter will be from the PoV of a different character. you should be able to tell whose PoV it is fairly easily, though.


summary: "primrose everdeen." this can't be happening, katniss thought. she desperately pushed through the crowd. i volunteer!, she wanted to scream. i volunteer as tribute! but she couldn't, because she wasn't eligible for the reaping anymore. there was nothing she could do.

whoo, it's been a while. what can i say, school's been keeping me busy busy busy, and even when i have free time i'm just so burnt out from schoolwork that i hardly ever got inspired to write. not to mention i'm freezing my butt off, which isn't exactly conducive to writing either. :P so my presence on the internet has been scarce for a while. but i'm back! the first quarter is over now and christmas/new year's break is coming up soon, so i hope to be able to de-stress and hopefully write more freely.

in the meantime, have a little snippet of chapter 32 of ricochet (yes, it's gale's PoV and no, that certainly didn't help the writer's block). as always, heads up for massive spoilers.

Collapse )

there's other stuff i wanted to post about, but for now i just want to get the next chapter ready and uploaded. so i'll be back to fangirl about recent events once i'm done with that! ^_^

first post from berlin!

so, the move has gone well so far. i'm pretty much halfway through freezing to death in this weather (and have been warned it gets much, much worse), but as long as i don't have to stay outside for long it's okay. it's going to be hard to get used to having to wear something around my neck all the time, though.

it's not terribly hard to communicate, as most people speak at least a little english, though i can't understand a thing that's on tv (at least the voice of germany contestants sing songs in english, most of which i can recognize), and having to download all my shows is a major pain, but what else am i going to do?

i've already gotten a good grasp on the transportation system (for the most part), and i rather like it. mom's still here with me-- she'll be flying back home on sunday. i've started my classes already; my schedule is crazy, as you might imagine (cross your fingers that i don't die before the end of my first quarter, LOL), but i found myself popping open my laptop during my lunch breaks and thus, the fanfic is not abandoned. =)

Collapse )

it's about 1 am right now on this timezone so i'm going to go to bed soon; i won't be able to edit chapter 25 until tomorrow afternoon, probably, so it's most likely it won't be published until tomorrow night, CET. but definitely wait for it! it's an important chapter. i'm really eager to see everybody's reactions. =3

PS: if anyone would like to know more about my moving-to-germany hijinks, my twitter has been basically filled with nothing but that recently, so do check it out if you'd like.

EXTRA!!-- and to complete the trilogy of HG essays, here's one for gale.



right, so i already have a peeta essay and a katniss essay, so i figure it's only fair to write up a little something about gale, too. as always, keep in mind that this is more me rambling than an actual structured essay. also, this one's shorter, so it's more of a mini-essay, because it was focused toward one question in particular instead of gale's character in general. but you know how wordy i get, so i may expand on this in the future.

this whole thing started, as usual, with one of my reviewers. the fantastic texas-devil-or-angel @ ff.net was commenting on a chapter of my fanfic, ricochet, which was from gale's point of view, and the idea came up that one of the things people sometimes don't like about gale as a character is that in the books it read like he felt he had just made up his mind that he and katniss should be together, and he wouldn't let go of that idea regardless of what was happening in katniss's life-- so maybe he never knew her that well to begin with.

this idea of gale feeling some kind of "entitlement" to katniss is something i had actually heard a few times before from other people in the fandom, and i thought it was interesting because i can definitely see where it came from, but i personally think there are more factors involved to gale and katniss's relationship so i see things somewhat differently.

Collapse )

so... yeah. that's kind of what i think about it, and what i generally try to transmit about gale when i characterize him for a fanfic. i think it's important to keep these things in mind when i write, because i do love gale, and while he is by no means perfect, i think many people tend to latch onto his bad side and forget about the good, and i don't think that's very fair. if there's one thing i never doubted, it's that he's a very genuine person. he did always want what was best for katniss, though he didn't necessarily have to be happy about it. so hopefully this little essay will help some of you see gale in a different light, too.

(those of you who follow my fic might find the not-so-subtle pun there. LOL).

two weeks to germany, as of today! go on, ask me how much german i know so far. (hint: none).

meanwhile, back when i planned out this chapter, i actually thought i was fitting one too many important events into it. i thought it was going to be crazy long. now that i've written it, turns out it's actually pretty short in comparison to the two previous chapters. oh well. i might still come back and add some padding in the future, but as of now i'm kind of sick of looking at it. so here, have your snippet and leave me be.

Collapse )

oh, haymitch. xD

meanwhile, i should have chapter 23 uploaded to ff.net by tonight. i hope. keep your fingers crossed that panama wins against canada tonight so i remain in a mostly good mood. =P
