    Summary

    He’s so tired. Of being gentle with himself, of giving himself time. Of all the helpful, exhausting little rituals that make it better but don’t make it go away. Of the distance between knowing the way home and actually being there.

    ----

    Sequel to Somewhere in Mid-Air, because enough people said they wanted to see more of the recovery and I found I did too. Nicky and Nile deal with the fallout.

    Summary

    She was starting to feel almost normal when Hap cautiously whispered, “Nile. Did…did you dream?”

    “Yes,” she said, feeling a chill, “Four people in a boxcar. Three men and one woman; I just saw their faces and not their daemons.” She chose not to think about that cold, dark place. It was hardly an earth shattering dream. If she were speaking to anyone but her daemon she would have tried to dismiss it.

    Hap let out a strained laugh, “I dreamed too. About four daemons whose humans I couldn’t see…”

    Summary

    He already knows how it feels to be struck by an arrowhead. How it feels to shudder out his final breaths as his bones crunch and his lungs fill with blood. Death is unavoidable. She teaches him about life.

    She teaches him that life, this life and all life, is a gift. It is not meant to be squandered, no matter that theirs will return.

    'You must never aim your weapon directly at those you wish to protect,' she says.

    'What if he has angered me,' he jokes.

    She hits him and he misses his target.

    --

    A study of Nicky and ranged weapons, from slingshots to sniper rifles.

    Summary

    “So, what has you awake this early in the morning?”

    Nicky gazes into his cup as if it holds the answer to her question. “I have a lot on my mind as well,” he admits.

    “Because of Booker?” Nile asks hesitantly, not sure if it’s okay to bring him up.

    “That too,” Nicky confirms. He sighs and shakes his head. “But it is not just his actions that are troubling me.”

    Nile takes a guess. “Andy?”

    Andy’s mortality changes everything for the team.

    Or: Five times Nile sees Nicky taking care of Andy after she becomes mortal, and one time she sees Andy returning the favor.

    Summary

    Rank and file lines of soldiers, all in the same gray brown uniforms, their faces digitally blurred march past the camera. She can't hear the news caster, and doesn't read the subtitles. The details aren't really important to her right now. She doesn't have the space to think about the context.

    All Nile sees really, is the familiar outline of desert mountains behind the parade of soldiers.

    They're still the same. She doesn't know why she thought they'd look different.

     

    Nile struggles with her past. Nicky helps. There's also some cliff-diving.

    Summary

    Each District has its own legend about the undying Ones. Four’s is of a long-haired woman held beneath the waves of the ocean in an iron coffin, echoes of her screams causing the tides; Two’s is of a bearded man trapped beneath the rocks of the mountains, his clawing fists causing the rumble of avalanches. Five’s is of a man with alcohol on his breath who is chained inside of the explosive testing plants, getting his body constantly ripped apart; Ten’s is of a woman who rode with the horses before they were a Capitol luxury and now is said to toil somewhere in the most dangerous meat plants.

    Twelve’s is a quieter tale- a quiet, kind woman who lives on the edge of town and occasionally brings in game for the Hob. She tells the children stories of the undying ones and they call her the River Lady, for her quiet, peaceful voice that ripples with the age of a river.

    And, of course, every district has tales of the Wild One, a manic, feral man who crawls through the Districts, searching for his lost love, his lost family- a man who brings destruction upon the Games and the Capitol wherever he roams.

    -

    It is on the eve of the Seventy Fourth Hunger Games that Peeta Mellark discovers that he cannot die.

    Summary

    Whumptober Day 31:

    The action clear, they were leaving Nicolò to rot in the heat of the desert sun.

    “You cannot!” Yusuf shouted, voice desperate and raw. They couldn’t leave Nicolò, the poor man would be lost in the ever changing landscape of the desert. He tugged against the rough hemp rope bound tightly around his wrists, ignoring how it sloughed his skin with every vicious jerk. He ignored the bite of the sword against his throat and pleaded, “Even as a deadman you can still garner a ransom for him!”
    My collection of one shots for Whumptober 2020.
