Once again, I am going to *highly recommend* that the entire Hunger Games fandom read Edward Said’s Orientalism. I think it will clear a lot of things up.
Disclaimer: The Hunger Games belong to Ms. Suzanne Collins, Scholastic, and Lionsgate Entertainment. The Secret Life of Bees belongs to Sue Monk Kidd. She’s Only Happy in the Sun is by Ben Harper (found on Diamonds on the Inside. I just love him.).
Thanks to: SavannahHershey, my beta and fangirl-in-crime, and somnambulance!
Ships: Katniss/Peeta, (Haymitch/Effie, Delly/Thom, Gale/OC)
Summary: Katniss spends some time in the woods and finds a new way to spend her hours while bringing justice to Peeta.
Rating: M for mature language, violence, and explicit sexual situations.
A/N: Well, Katniss finally finds her calling! Lots of action and sexual frustration in this one—let me know what you think! (Like Gale said, Katniss only smiles in the woods, so I tried to find a new place for her in the forest.) Thanks so much for your constructive criticisms and reviews—more Peeta and Katniss to come!
This is a particular favorite of Little Duck. It is best drunk at the races in Virginia horse country on a lazy spring afternoon, wearing your finest Lilly Pulitzer. Guys in ties and girls in pearls, preferably. Or, when you’re watching Gone with the Wind or Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It’s minty, cool, and bourbony— just what we all need in our lives.
14 sprigs of fresh mint leaves
1 tsp. simple syrup (1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of boiling water— let dissolve and cool)
4 oz. KENTUCKY bourbon (for Josh Hutcherson, please)
Mint sprigs for garnish
Muddle your mint leaves and simple syrup together with a wooden spoon in a glass (or whatever you have on hand, really). Fill with crushed ice and LOTS OF BOURBON (Southern hospitality— be generous). Mix/muddle. Enjoy your pretentiousness. It’s a simple, delicious Southern pleasure,
I just bought ten pairs of sandals. SOMEONE HELP ME. I CANNOT SAY NO TO SALES. Damn you, DSW.
But of course I write Peeta and Katniss in the bedroom— it’s their favorite place! Please see my story, The Secret Life of Bees, here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8107908/15/The_Secret_Life_of_Bees.
The smutfest starts in Chapter 15, and from there on out, it’s basically a fuckathon. Oh, I meant to say “porn with plot.” I have 30 chapters written, and about 15 outlined, so there will be lots of the Peeniss sex.
I’m also posting it on here (when I can) as well as on AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/users/pippiblondestocking/pseuds/pippiblondestocking
I hope you enjoy it, as I might as well let you know that I am also outlining a Panem AU and Mockingjay story. I have a lot of feelings and I’m very horny, so this is a good way to get it all out at the same time.
LOVE YOU, MEAN IT!
