Rec: "Making Amy"

Story: Making Amy
Author: Canaan
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 17,703
Author's Summary: In HonorH's The Wolf and the Mockingjay AU, Hunger Games victor Amy Pond is at a club, dancing in her underwear. This the story of her Games. Doctor Who/Hunger Games crossover.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Mels, Jack Harkness, Other Characters
Warnings: Explicit Violence, Swearing, Dubcon

Recced because: It's incredibly dark and well-written. Unlike HonorH's tale, it doesn't have a happy ending, but the ending it does provide is immensely powerful. I'd been hoping the author would finish in time for me to rec it this week on Calufrax, and what do you know? The ending popped up yesterday.

If you like the Hunger Games, read it. If you don't have prior knowledge of the Hunger Games, still read it if you like dark, AU fics, because it's brilliant, tragic, gritty, and disturbing, all wrapped up into one beautifully written package.


[Excerpt]






Capitol magic has made Amy beautiful again. The two smallest fingers of her left hand are taped to a jeweled splint while the bones heal, but she doesn't have a scar or blemish anywhere on her body. Her sunburn is gone, leaving nothing but sun-bronzed skin she knows she didn't come by honestly, because she has no tan lines. Her hair is clean and glossy, frothing around her shoulders in soft curls. She has nails again, shaped and painted. She's dressed in a long, white, sleeveless dress that flows in graceful folds down past her knees.



Jack says the dress is another goddess thing. It doesn't seem worth arguing. He paints her lying face last. It looks like there's something he wants to say, but in the end he just takes her hands, her beautiful, killing hands, and holds them gently in his own for a few moments before he leaves the room.
