Sexy Neighbor Mechanic!Peeta
At 20 years old Katniss never thought she’d be living in a trailer park working at Abernathy’s Auto Parts while trying to raise her 15 year old sister. And yet here she is, it definitely wasn’t her plan. But fate is fucked up like that, 18 months prior both of her parents died in a car accident leaving her the sole guardian of Prim. She knew there was no way she could finish school, she lived in a dorm paid for with scholarship money so she couldn’t bring Prim to live with her and the places for rent near the university we’re so astronomical she’d never be able to afford one with a minimum wage job, and with no degree and little experience that’s about all she was qualified for. What happens when fate throws Katniss a curve ball in the form of a sexy new neighbor?

They’d passed each other in the rain, a chance encounter on a lonely beach. And Katniss wondered how anyone could have a look in their eye as tortured as Peeta Mellark’s and still be alive.
A blizzard strikes. With Peeta stranded at the mayor’s place and Haymitch passed out at home, a heavily pregnant Katniss must have her wits about her. post-Mockingjay, pre-epilogue.
Modern AU - Peeta’s arms tighten around me, holding me together to prevent me from falling apart even more, as he whispers calm, soothing words into my ears, enveloping me with his calm demeanour. Katniss must hold herself together when something happens that prevents Peeta from doing it for her.
Driver roll up the partition please, Peeta doesn’t need you seeing him on his knees.
"Peeta says it will be okay. We have each other. And the book. We can make them understand in a way that will make them braver." A look at the specific things Katniss mentions that went into the book at the end of Mockingjay and how they come back and reappear throughout the rest of their lives.
