Why This Must Be Read:
It's hard to find fic for this ship at all and I was very pleased to find this one. It's a post-Mockingjay AU, in which Katniss has lost everything and only Haymitch is there to catch her fall. Except of course he doesn't do that at all, because he's Haymitch. But as we see from canon he's not completely incapable of serious thought or of some form of redemption either. As Katniss heals what they find together here is believable and well-characterized.
