Author has written 74 stories for Misc. Movies, Gordan Korman, Temeraire, Hunger Games, Captain America, Portal, Much Ado About Nothing, Bible, Kamen Rider, Shakespeare, Star Wars, Stranger Things, 2016, Wynonna Earp, and Avengers.

Mirror of my account on AO3, because not everyone reads stuff over there.

I write lots of things, but mostly The Hunger Games. District Two is my heart-place, and I guarantee my friends and I have thought more about it and Career training than almost anyone alive.

I write romance sometimes, but I like people more than I like sex, so expect a lot of gen. I write a lot of feelings and very little porn.

If you want to talk to me about fannish things, you can stalk me on Twitter, Dreamwidth or LiveJournal.

Callista of District 2 won her Games with sex and blood. She's confident that after the Arena, she can handle whatever the Capitol throws at her. But after losing her first tribute to Chaff of District 11, Callista finds out the hard way that the Capitol's obsession with pretty tributes extends even after death - and it's far more twisted than even she imagined.

(WARNING: CHILD ABUSE) Peacekeepers are supposed to save you, but sometimes they don't. Sometimes "keeping the peace" means protecting the people with power and never mind who else gets hurt. Sometimes nobody comes to save you after all. For Sloane, dying in the Arena will be the escape she's wanted since she was six years old. The trick is surviving until she gets there.
