The Hunger Games Recs  
Rereading the Hunger Games books made me curious about what fanfic has been written for them, so naturally I have been scouring AO3, such a convenient website! Unfortunately, most of the fics I have found are Modern Day AU's, which I don't really love for this verse because most of the time the characters are so OOC they are unrecognizable. But I have found a few fics that I have loved, so I have decided to make a rec post for them!

In the Warnings section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "first times" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Katniss Everdeen/Peeta Mellark

Title: Spectrum
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] purple_cube
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,364
Content/Warnings shower!sex
Summary: It begins with a spark, one that brings color and heat to her fingertips while the rest of her remains grey and cold.
Takes place after the main events of Mockingjay. Super hot with great characterizations and a believable development.

Title: Only For Us
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] itsthedetails
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,168
Content/Warnings first time
Summary: Written for the Girl on Fire Comment Fic Prompt: Catching Fire AU (no Quarter Quell). Katniss is set to begin her duties as a victor, and her virginity has fetched a record price, but she won't let her first time happen that way.
The idea behind this fic is so perfectly canon and helps create a very believable scenario. Sexy and a bit bittersweet.

Title: The Cave
Author: sassenachwench
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,206
Content/Warnings first time
Summary: For those who wanted more of Katniss/Peeta in their "cave".
God, this fic was everything I was looking for when I went looking for Everlark fic. This was exactly what I wished had happened in that cave.

Title: The End is the Beginning
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] spanglemaker9
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta, mention of Gale/OC
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 4,822
Content/Warnings first time
Summary: Post-Mockingjay/ pre-epilogue. An expansion of Katniss and Peeta rediscovering each other.
This is beautiful and believable and it fits so perfectly into canon.

Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,457
Content/Warnings AU: Panem, prim lives
Summary: Katniss follows her mother and sister to District 4, and trains her mind not to think of Peeta Mellark every time blue eyes meet hers.
Interesting Panem AU where Prim lives and Katniss didn't kill Coin and she moved to District 4 with her family while Peeta returned to 12. Sexy and very believable.

Title: And We Tumble to the Ground (And Then You Say)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] loveleee
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,021
Content/Warnings first time
Summary: “And I’m excited to introduce you to my brothers,” Peeta adds, flashing me a grin as he squeezes my hand. “But most of all…” He lowers his voice. “I can’t wait to get you alone.” He punctuates that remark with a soft kiss right on my neck, leaving no doubt as to his meaning.
Pre-Catching Fire; Katniss never comes clean to Peeta about their relationship.
Hot and believable! I loved the alternative take on what could have happened when they got back from the first games.

Title: Complete
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] mariannalark
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,630
Content/Warnings first time
Summary: His lips brushed impatiently at her neck, her hand pressing him closer. A low moan escaped her lips, swollen & red from his hungry, almost feral kisses.
He let out a moan of his own. It echoed in her ears, silencing the small part of her brain that was telling her to slow down, that it shouldn't happen like this ...
Man this is seriously just perfection. I can totally see this in the canon verse, the situation and characterizations and evolution of their feelings and their relationship is just so believable. And hot! :D

Title: Science vs. Romance
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] loveleee
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta, past Katniss/Gale, past Peeta/Effie
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,584

Summary: Katniss Everdeen is twenty-two years old, slinging burgers and beer at Hawthorne's Bar and Grill the day the vampires come out of the coffin.
THG meets True Blood. Written for Day 2 of the Prompts in Panem AU challenge on Tumblr.
I was surprised by how much I liked this AU, but the True Blood fusion was well-done and super hot!

Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] loveleee

These fics were super hot and believable. They fit seamlessly into canon and I thought the characterizations were wonderful.

Summary: I know this would have happened anyway – Katniss Everdeen (Chapter 27, Mockingjay).
Mrs. Everdeen returns to District 12 with Katniss, while Peeta searches Panem to find a home – and himself.
Really wonderful post-mockingjay fic. Fantastic characterizations with a lovely buid between Peeta and Katniss. It all felt very believable and the sex was hot and sweet.

Title: Hero of the Story
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] atetheredmind
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta, Gale/Katniss, Peeta/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 29,346
Content/Warnings AU: Panem, infidelity
Summary: By the end of the summer, Peeta Mellark had married the shoemaker's daughter. And by the end of the summer, Katniss had wed Gale in a small toasting ceremony. AU where Prim and Peeta are never reaped, and where there is no mockingjay, no rebellion.
This was wonderfully written and a little heartbreaking. It felt very realistic and natural and it has a happy ending, yay!

Title: Ride Along
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] loveisallwereallyneedtosurvive
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 32,334
Content/Warnings AU: Modern, cop!peeta, first time, underage, dirty talk
Summary: "We drive along in silence for a while longer, and I realize this night has not gone at all like I had expected. I was ready to be pissed off the entire time and make it perfectly clear how I feel about this punishment. But Officer Mellark is nothing at all like I expected, and this night has been anything but ordinary." Modern Day AU
Super fun and sexy AU. Definitely a bit OOC, but that's to be expected with Modern AUs. Love their connection in this and the sex was fantastically hot.

Title: [archiveofourown.org profile] HGRomance
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta, Gale/Johanna, past Peeta/Delly, past Finnick/Annie
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 57,815
Content/Warnings AU: Fusion, robin hood fusion, first time, arranged marriage
Summary:People in the kingdom whispered about a legend: a boy with a bow. They said he took up residence in the woods, hiding out while committing random acts of kindness, namely stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Historical AU. Robin Hood.
Very interesting AU with a sort of role reversal for Peeta and Katniss, Katniss is from a wealthy family and Peeta is the talented archer. Love the way the characters are incorporated and the sex was scorching!

Annie Cresta/Finnick Odair

Title: Enough Rope
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] theladyingrey42
Pairing: Annie/Finnick
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,988
Summary: He saved the girl on fire and he doomed the girl who almost drowned. - What it was like in Finnick's head during the first half of Mockingjay.
God, this was so gorgeously written. Beautiful and a bit heartbreaking.

Gale Hawthorne/Peeta Mellark

Title: Casualties
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] shoefreak37
Pairing: Gale/Peeta
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,988
Content/Warnings AU: Panem, major character death
Summary: For Peeta and Gale, the absence of Katniss is in everything. Together, they learn to remember without guilt, discover solace in unconventional places, and realize love can grow out of despair. Mockingjay-AU, slight spoilers, slash.
This was lovely and bittersweet and moving. Goes a bit AU towards the end of Mockingjay, with Katniss dying and Peeta and Gale left to pick up the pieces.

Title: Friend of Ours
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] rawthorne
Pairing: Gale/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,394
Content/Warnings dirty talk, talk of switching
Summary: They may not talk about it, but it did happen. The more Peeta tries not dwell on the details, the more his treacherous mind provides fodder for nightmares free of Capitol tampering. (Spoilers for the trilogy. Not epilogue compliant.)
Wonderfully written and a great build-up.
