Ahhhh, Summer! Everybody - go outside and enjoy the sun. What are you doing inside reading this? Go live (and then come back here and write about it) !

Thoughts for Hunger Games fanficers:

Want to add a smack of realism to your Hunger Games fanfic?

Watch the film 'Winter's Bone' instead of watching (yet again) the Hunger Games movies. (If you are not old enough to watch 'R' movies, then of course don't watch "Winter's Bone" as it is not meant for kids. Seriously.) You get to see Jennifer Lawrence act in a much truer and grittier role of a teen stuck in the mire of poverty and in a setting similar to Hunger Game's District 12. Yes, 'Winter's Bone' is set in rural backwater Missouri instead of Appalachia, but there's a lot you can learn from it. Be alert as you watch to how the people of this landscape treat each other -poverty can be a cruel existence- and how they treat authority figures (police) and outsiders with outright distrust. The movie does not hit you over the head with it, but understand that in the scenes where she's out with the kids, shooting and skinning squirrels that this is a family with no money and edging into starvation. This is a much more realistic "Katniss" having to go out every day and bring home something, anything, to feed what's left of her family.

Learn about the coal mining life of Appalachia. As an intro, there was a hit song from the 1950s called "Sixteen Tons". A web page at talks about the song but also provides information on what coal mining life is/was like. I gather from how Katniss describes District 12, the Seam, and the mining operations that things are much like what you will find there.

Consider what Katniss and the other tributes would probably look like. All of the Districts are held in poverty by the Capital. Katniss is a 15 yr old girl who has never had any dental care, not much of any health care, and suffers from undernourishment. Jennifer Lawrence is a wonderful actress but when you add up what the "real" Katniss looks like, Jennifer might not be the answer you come up with (this is hard because the imagery we get from movies is so hard to get away from).

    If I Had A Heart by Suz Singer reviews
    Winnow Fontanne is a rather atypical tribute in the 74th Hunger Games. Her motives aren't too clear to anyone - much less herself. When she meets Cato, she sees potential - as a lover and an ally. As time goes on, Winnow will figure out just what it is she wants and what she'll do to get it. 1ST SEQUEL IS UP - PANEM ET CIRCUSES.

    The Hunger Games: The Boy With the Bread by Allianna2010 reviews
    This story follows the exact guidelines set forth by Suzanne Collins in her original work for The Hunger Games trilogy. Every conversation, emotion, movement etc. that was outlined in The Hunger Games series has been painstakingly replicated into this work. I wanted this FanFic to accurately reflect Peeta's side, exactly the mirror to Katniss' story in S. Collins' work.

    My Brother's Keeper by silverwolflover reviews
    My name is Azaria Crain and I was so close to not being called in the Hunger Games. My name wasn't called. But my little brother's was. Knowing that I wouldn't be able to stand the sight of seeing him fight for his life and not be able to do anything, without thinking, I volunteer to take the place of some girl from my district so that I may stand with my brother as a Tribute.

    Scared by montreal-girl reviews
    Death isn't something he's supposed to think about, but he does. District Two tributes shouldn't be thinking about dying, but he can't stop himself. And heaven forbid a strong, brutal Victor-to-be like himself starts thinking about sacrifice. But he does. And it's all her fault.

    The Blood of the Beast by Paper Space reviews
    He was like her in many ways. He too was hollow but at some point in his life must have filled up the empty space with anger and a hatred toward everything. She knew in the end he would be hers. His death would be brutal and perfect at her hand- she wouldn't unjust him by making it any other way. Cover art by Lunatic9289
