Author has written 5 stories for Hunger Games.

I'm part of The Hunger Games and Uglies fandom.

I heard of both books back in early 2010. I found myself more interested in Uglies. I had a very nice fanfic for it planned, but I realized it sounded way better in my head than once I typed it up. I may return to it one day, who knows.

I didn't read The Hunger Games until it was a required reading in my developmental psychology class a year later. I'm so thankful my professor re-introduced me to it. I couldn't put the book down and have been an avid fan ever since (and I made a B in the class).

Me vs. Hunger Games fandom:

-I'm a shameless reader of SYOT fanfics. They remind me of those romance novels you find at the dollar store. No offense to those authors. There are some great SYOT stories i.e. misticalcookie. It's that the majority of them can be really cheesy and oddly written.

-I am not a fan of Peeta. There, I said it. I found him extremely annoying throughout the entire series. I believe he should've died in the first book to create a more dramatic effect and so that Katniss ends up with Gale. To me, it seems more logical for those two to be together.

-The amount of CatoxClove, GalexMadge, HaymitchxEffie, HaymitchxMaysilee, RoryxPrim stories I see are highly confusing.

And yes, I make up the 8% of male fanfics readers. We're an exclusive club.

(I typed all of this up and clicked off the page, forgetting to save it. There was much more information here the first time :/)

-Completed Stories-

Roulette-It's my pride and joy. The first story that I ever stuck with from start to finish. A simple boy from District Ten is plucked from the masses to become Giovanni Del Rojo, Victor of the 61st Hunger Games. I'd love to hear your opinions about Roulette.

-In-Progress-

A Deck of 24-A series of one-shots for every tribute in the 61st Hunger Games, including Giovanni. I plan to finish this quickly in order to work on Roulette's sequels ASAP.

Just A High Rolling District Boy-Details Giovanni's life after he wins the Games. Will probably be the longest in the trilogy as it spans over a decade of his life (rest assured, I'll skip over a few years to save from dragging the story along)

-Future Stories-

Gambler's Fallacy-The final story of the Roulette trilogy. Giovanni's role in the 74th Hunger Games and the Rebellion. His opinion on Little Miss Everdeen is certainly not of the norm.

Dessert For Breakfast (maybe)-A KatnissxPeeta one-shot months after the end of Mockingjay but long before the Epilogue. I told myself I'd never write about Katniss or Peeta, particularly on their romance, but people change. This is only an idea in my head, so please no rioting outside my dorm or exploding my car if this never sees the light.

The Victors Project by Oisin55 reviews
Before Katniss and Peeta, seventy-three children won the Hunger Games. Some were brutal. Some were clever. Some were lucky. A few were almost decent. These are their stories. This is the Victors Project.

Fall Into the River by Oisin55 reviews
"Oh, no, not Cecelia," gasped Effie Trinket as the woman from District 8 walked up to the stage after her children were torn from her. This is the woman that even Effie felt for. This is the soft-spoken, shy young girl who became one of the deadliest tributes in Hunger Games history. This is Cecelia Rheys. This is the Fifty-Seventh Annual Hunger Games.

Quick Hands by wroteastory reviews
Back after a long hiatus! After losing a close friend in a previous Game, District 3's Tech Narrows has been selected by his community (which has never won) to serve as a Tribute in the 25th Hunger Games. His role as an outcast has proven to be a benefit physically, but can he mentally endure his district partner, the tradition of the Games and the insanity-inducing arena?

Lamb to Slaughter by Lasgalendil reviews
"All things must die," her father said. "There is a time for kindness, and a time for killing." In the Games, that line is blurred. Can killing, in itself, be an act of kindness? Or is Petra now so immune to cruelty that she can't tell the difference? Pre-THG, a Tribute from 6 must learn the true cost of living in a society that values entertainment and excess more than life.

Amazing Grace by Maraudercat reviews
The victors of the annual Hunger Games usually succeed through strength, training, or popularity. Intelligence is the slow path to victory, but it is all I have to win. My name is Wiress Ling and this is my story.

The Color of Blood by Wintermoth reviews
My life didn't end in the Games. Sometimes I wish it had. Sometimes I'm glad it didn't. Sometimes I look and I see their blood on my hands. Sometimes I see him smiling at me and I feel like everything I've done doesn't even matter. I am a murderer. I am a savior. I am Panem's 69th victor. I am just me.

Swingsets by lollercakes reviews
I found out after that there are worse things than being Reaped. Worse than dying in the Arena trying to save the one you love. They don't tell you that the worst thing is to live after. It's not simple for a Victor. It's never that simple.

The Lumberjack and the Tree Elf by Oisin55 reviews
Johanna Mason said Blight "wasn't much, but he was from home." And even someone who isn't much has to have a story. This is the brilliant and manipulative young man who was forced into the Games by his own district. This is Blight Gavin. This is the Fifty-Second Annual Hunger Games.

Silent Leges enim inter Arma by Nullumstiamdictum reviews
At the Reaping for the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Primrose Everdeen's name was not called. But Gale Hawthorne's was. This is a story of ends, not means. A story of cunning, not brute force. A story of betrayal, not love. This is Gale Hawthorne.

Picking Up the Pieces by IheartRonaldWeasley reviews
My take on how Katniss and Peeta re-discovered eachother. Set at the end of "Mockingjay" and before the epilogue. Rated T just in case of future chapters that could include flashbacks to the games.
