Fanfiction Appreciation Week Day 3
"Mutually Assured Destruction" by All3Unforgivables
I’m sure most of you are familiar with this story. It was only three chapters long, but I think it hooked most readers immediately. Sadly, it was deleted, not long after the author had uploaded the third chapter after months with no updates, so I don’t know what happened. I’ve been devastated ever since it’s deletion, and I can’t even go back and reread what little of the story we had.
MAD was my first taste of a dark!Peeta, and holy fuck I wanted more. In this story, he was a cocky, ruthless Career who had his eyes set on Katniss from the beginning. Each scene with them was rife with sexual tension. I don’t know if I’ve wanted any other reincarnation of these two characters to fuck so badly before.
My mind spins with the many ways this story could have played out: Would the author still go the way of the star-crossed lovers ploy, despite their different districts? Would Katniss have to kill Peeta in the end to ensure her victory? And, the most important question of all: Jesus Christ, how many different ways were they going to screw each other’s brains out in the games?
