Pairing: Katniss/Haymitch (plus references to Haymitch/Finnick, Katniss/Johanna, Katniss/Finnick)
Length: 13,416 words
Warnings: Nothing much more disturbing than the books themselves, though to be fair that is pretty disturbing. Off-screen compulsory prostitution. Some violence. Suzanne Collins, you are quite the bundle of rainbows. Plus the big age difference of the pairing, and possibly underage sexytimes depending on where you live (Katniss is 17 in the story).
Spoilers: This goes AU at the end of the first book of the series, but includes references to backstory and characters we don't get until Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
Summary: No berries, no mockingjay, no rebellion. Katniss killed Peeta in the arena, and now she has to live with herself like every other victor.
Author's Notes: Thanks to kyrafic for encouragement and a great beta job. Written for the Tik Tok (Ke$ha) challenge at nothing_hip. Tick tock on the clock but the party don't stop. Whoa-oh-oh-oh.
