Seriously, Ivy? How do we not have Avengers recs? Let's get on that shit. I just watched Captain America the other day and I am certifiably hooked, been trolling through lots of comic-based things that I don't have time to learn the backstory for and the movie doesn't come out 'til march, mama needs some fiiiic

Title: To the Victor, The Spoil
Author: Annakovsky
Series: The Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss/Haymitch (squicky, I know, but it somehow fits with the story)
WIP?: one-shot, complete
Genre: AU, deathfic, DARK AS FUCK, dubcon and offscreen noncon
Summary: No berries, no mockingjay, no rebellion. Katniss killed Peeta in the arena, and now she has to live with herself like every other victor.
Your thoughts: If you know anything about the Hunger Games, you know that the entire world is seriously dark and screwed in the head, and if you made it to the third book then you know what happened to Finnick when he became victor. This is not a happy story. It is a horrible story. But then, so is the canon it's based on, and I think the way this plays out is actually the way things might have gone, if Katniss had been just a little bit too hasty. Haymitch's POV is heartbreaking.

Title: 5 Places Cinna Came From
Author: aimmyarrowshigh
Series: the hunger games
Pairing: Cinna/Finnick, mostly
WIP?: Chaptered, complete
Genre: depressing. why don't i just go ahead and mark all hunger games fic from here on out as depressing, because if someone's managed to write a successful bit of humor based on this stuff then i haven't seen it.
Brief summary: District four, District one, District five, District twelve, District seven - 5 places Cinna came from
Your thoughts: This is an unusually (and beautifully!) fleshed out 5 things fic, every bit, and each gives Cinna a compelling backstory that somehow, even though they start in these hugely different places, manages to bring him to the same point. Finnick is deeply woven throughout. Cinna was one of my very favorite characters in the novels (next to Finnick, so double win for me) and the way his character is filled in and given not just one, but five complex origin stories just gives me endless enjoyment. I love him getting all this attention :)

Title: Sic Gorgiamus Allos Subjectatos Nunc
Author: etothepii
Series: Sherlock (BBC)/Addams family (go with it)
Pairing: pretty sure it goes John/Sherlock somewhere down the line
WIP?: Three complete one-shots, pretty sure that's all that's coming
Brief summary: "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc. It's the family motto." "What does it mean?" "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."
Your thoughts: Ok, I know it's weird, but it's also incredibly awesome. It's a thing I didn't know I wanted until I had it, and then once it was over I wanted more. I don't know anything about the Addams Family except that they're creepy and they're kooky and their theme song involves snapping, and also there's apparently a hairy dude named "Cousin It" involved because that's what my mom used to call me whenever my bangs got too long. I got through this fic just fine. It's very John-centric anyway, and his steadfast POV of all this ridiculous stuff just makes it even better.

Title: all straight lines circle sometime
Author: smallacts
Series: Suits/Time Traveler's Wife
Pairing: Harvey/Mike
WIP?: Chaptered, complete
Brief summary: "July 1994, Harvey is 17, Mike is 24"
Your thoughts: Time Traveler's Wife AUs are my crack. I will read all of the Time Traveler's Wife AUs I can get my hands on, no exceptions, and I'm stoked that this one was executed so well. This story handles the most intriguing aspects of the TTW concept very delicately and applies them nicely to the boys and their character development - great overall effect.

alright that's enough to be getting on with. finals, i have them. off to write about german foreign policy. yay bundestag.
