Hunger Games Fan Fiction Reading of the Day

The internet is crap today.

Crap. Crap. Crap.

Do you know how hard it is to teach an on-line class when each page takes about 5 minutes to refresh, and it takes at least 10 seconds for auto-fill ? At this rate, she’ll still be in front of her computer, still in her pajamas, until midnight. Tomorrow, too.

Time for a break. So wonderful that all she needs to do is switch windows and she lands on her fan fiction reading of the day.

Katniss is a lone Victor of her games. One day, while out foraging in the woods, she encounters a starving and beaten Peeta, and invites him to come home with her to be “her baker.”

There is no Prim. No Mrs. Everdeen. Only a Mellark family so cruel they could be lifted directly from the Brothers Grimm.

In the meantime, Katniss wanders to Town to get Peeta some new clothes. The ones he’s wearing are completely ripped and torn, as if he’s been set upon by wild animals. While Katniss is in town, she bumps into Madge Undersee. At which point:

“It’s good to see you,” Madge continues.

Is it? Katniss doesn’t answer, just adjusts the strap of her bag and gives her a fake smile. The kind she’s perfected for her Capitol audience, who want her to be happy but don’t care, really, if she is or not.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
