Love What is Behind You by KouriArashi [1] Fandom: Teen WolfDate: 2017Length: 54k
Basically what it says on the label. Hunger Games type fusion. Stiles doing way better than anyone anticipates. Peter finds him intriguing. Ruthless, devious assholes working together to ruin bad guys, as the Steter ship is meant to be.
One, two, three by Severus_divides_into_H [2] Fandom: HannibalDate: 2016–2018Length: 68k
Will imagined his death in numerous ways, numerous times. Being chosen as a tribute opened a road of new possibilities, some more horrifying than the others. He doesn’t want to be torn to pieces like Randall Tier’s prey. He doesn’t want to be burned like Francis Dolarhyde prefers to kill. But most of all he doesn’t want to be caught by Hannibal Lecter, a career tribute with a penchant for eating his victims alive.
Too bad Hannibal seems fixated on him.

He's not supposed to be in the Arena. Kili Durinson is exempt, it's the agreement between District 1 and the Capitol, it's the agreement his uncle made with President Smaug. But he's still been chosen. And the odds of favor don't lend themselves to a young dwarf who's being made an example of as punishment to his uncle.
But there are alliances to be had, strange allies from very different districts. And outside of the Arena, Thorin Oakenshield Durinson is going to do anything and everything to get his nephew back. Even if that means jumpstarting the rebellion.

Tributes by TheAvalonian [6] Fandom: MerlinDate: 2013Length: 87k
It is the 57th annual Hunger Games, and Merlin Emrys stands at the Reaping ceremony with Guinevere Smith at his side, unable to hear the roar of the crowd over the ringing in his own ears. Because Merlin is about to face his best friend and twenty-two strangers in a fight to the death, where there can only be one victor.
In a twisted game where death seems the only certainty, Merlin will find himself tested in ways no one could have ever predicted - and may even find himself fighting for more than just his own life as he enters into an unlikely alliance with Arthur Pendragon, the Career tribute poised to win it all.
