Author has written 6 stories for Hunger Games.

Hello people who are currently viewing my page. Welcome! I am Gamemaker John. I'm a fanfiction writer for the Hunger Games. I've written five stories and have made a community called the Hunger Games Legacies. Check it out and please subscribe! If you want to be a contributor or have your story submitted, just PM me; I promise to reply. Also, I love editing things, and I'd like to think I'm pretty good at it too. So if you want some insight on your story just ask me and I'll be happy to oblige.

I love reviews. Both giving and receiving them. I try to drop a decent review (by which I mean more than "good job, keep it up") to anyone who gives one of my stories a review. I think it works out well for everyone. So, if you review one of my stories, I'll review one of yours, even if you don't write for my fandoms.

Fanfics I am working on right now:

Annie's Games: It seems to me that the majority of the Annie Cresta fanfics I encounter focus on the love story between the young innocent Annie Cresta and her mentor, Finnick Odair. But to me, that doesn't seem likely at all. Annie was a tribute from District Four, therefore she is almost certainly a Career. That is the set-up for this story, delving into the reasons Careers volunteer and how they kill in cold blood. From my point of view, Careers are victims too. Also, I focus on the reasons Annie went insane. It is brutal and tragic as it shows her slow descent into madness and exactly why it happened. I made several OCs to tell the story, and am in the midst of navigating complex alliances and internal character motivations. It is not a love story. It does not have a happy ending. It is the tragedy of Annie Cresta, the mad girl from District Four.

The Untold Story of Lavinia Tagaria: the story of how Lavinia became an Avox and what drove her to escape to District 12. This one is a little bit of a mystery/thriller with several dramatic plot elements. It has only a few chapters and I think it will end up being aroundd 8-10 chapters long. NOT CURRENTLY BEING WORKED ON.

The Mythology of the Hunger Games: This one isn't a story, no, more of a collection of stories. It summarizes each of the 75 Hunger Games, including OCs as well as known victors such as Finnick or Johanna. It also explains how the Games evolved over time, how the Careers formed, how training started, when the Gamemakers started using mutts. Obviously there will be 75 chapters.

Journal of a Forgotten Soldier: This is the story of the rebellion of District 8. It is told by a man who fought in the rebellion to defend his family and how harshly the Capitol retaliated. It is a very dark story, but also very hopeful. It is full of OCs, however, there are several references to main characters such as Peeta, Katniss and Snow.

Bound by Blood: This isn't my fanfic persay, but I did co-contribute a character. It's a SYOT, FYI. Here's the fanfic: and here is my character's chapter, Spelt:

Completed Fanfics:

The Death of Finnick: Exactly what it sounds like: how Finnick died. Contains plenty of feels.

No Game for a Child: This is the story of the Hunger Games, as told through a child's eyes. Joshua is the son of a Gamemaker, who takes him to work to see how they control the arena. Joshua sees the Hunger Games for the first time and reacts harshly to the tournament as only a child would. (This story got third place in Caesar's Palace's Monthly Oneshot Challenge)

Fanfics I may do in the future:

-I'm thinking of a Harry Potter/Hunger Games crossover. Something along the lines of Voldemort inprisoing all the members of Dumbledore's Army in Hogwarts until one remains. I'm not sure yet. I definetly want to do a HP fanfic, just because I have yet to do one yet.

-I have an idea for a story about the rebellion of District Eight. It would be told in journal form by a rebel. It would be an incredibly tragic story (as most of mine are) about how the Capitol cracked down on the rebellion.

-I have an idea for comedic parodies of a bunch of other fandoms. I'm not sure yet...I will need to finish a few other projects before I get started on it.

-Based on the fact that tons of people loved my Finnick story, I may write a collect of stories about characters' last thoughts. I would do Rue, Prim, Cato, Mags, etc etc.

Fandoms I am in:

-Hunger Games, obviously. I love the series, liked the movie (I have high hopes for the second one!). The themes and messages it has are just astounding.

-Harry Potter. My first fandom. I will always be a Potterhead.

-Avatar (both The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra). Best cartoon ever. Period.

-Divergent. A growing fandom. I cannot wait for the third book and movie. I feel like I have a special connection because I live in Chicago, the setting of the book, and have been to almost every place mentioned in the series.

-Game of Thrones. I fell in love with the show and just ordered the books. It has such a rich world with a huge cast of vibrant characters.

I also love Lost, Cloud Atlas, Percy Jackson, Walking Dead and many more.

Seeds of Panem by ForFutureReference reviews
Before Panem could rise, our civilization had to fall. The series of events leading up to Panem's foundation, as seen through the eyes of a college student in the Capitol. Some random classroom stuff on the side. Frame narrative set a couple years after the conclusion of the Mockingjay Rebellion. Contains some crude language and scenes that may be considered disconcerting.

The Mythology of the Hunger Games reviews
Every Hunger Games has its victor. Every victor has a story... In attempting to explain the 75 years of Hunger Games, as well as the profound cultural impact they had on the Districts and the Capitol, these tales will demonstrate how a nation instituted such violent means...and just how deep the imprint was. This is the Mythology of the Hunger Games.
