Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Peeta's POV: since the books and films are from Katniss' POV, fan writers will often explore the story from Peeta's perspective
  • Modern AU: modern setting, not in the Hunger Games universe, where he knows or meets other characters from the series
  • High School AU or College AU: common because of his relative age
  • Hijacked Peeta: focusing on Peeta in his hijacked state, and his slow return to normality
  • PTSD: writers often explore the aftermath of traumatic events in canon, often with a focus on Peeta's brainwashing by the capitol
  • Canon Divergence AU: varies - some examples: there is no Quarter Quell, there is no rebellion and Peeta becomes a mentor. In general, diverging after the second book is quite common
  • Post-Mockingjay: a continuation of his story after the end of the series, often focusing on his relationship and eventual marriage to Katniss, or the reconstruction of District 12
  • Supporting Character: frequently a supporting character in stories focused on Katniss
