Night Vale, Hunger Games | Carlos+Cecil, Khoshekh, SSP | T | A Matter of Time before All Your...

Title: A Matter of Time before All Your Alliances
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale, The Hunger Games
Characters/Pairings: Cecil & Carlos, Khoshekh, Sheriff's secret police
Rating: T
Warnings: post-traumatic stress, violence, police brutality, badly hurt Khoshekh, references to: non-con, character death, attempted suicide. (So, a bunch of THG standards.)
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and settings are not mine.

Like everyone else, I needed to write a cathartic Khoshekh fic post-e043, and this is what came out. A follow-up to the AU where Carlos is a Hunger Games victor.

Revolution is hard; building a new society out of the wreckage is harder. Cecil's position in the post-war Panem is shaky at best, and there are times when Carlos can't protect him...or Khoshekh. Very loose remix of e043 Visitor, crossed with e037 The Auction.

( It doesn't occur to him to go knock on one of his fellow Victors' doors for backup. They've been his allies for years, but they've also spent most of that time scattered across the Districts and unable to help in a situation like this, so Carlos the Scientist is self-reliant. )
