Katniss, I don’t think President Snow will kill Peeta. If he does, he won’t have any way to hurt you.
No, not deranged, I remind myself. Hijacked.
but honestly this gets me so much because
1)well you know peeta,just in general
3)the white rose petals falling
4)katniss’ reaction to white roses/the doing of president snow
6)for some reason i think of cinna while looking at this
so it’s late and i just felt the need to post this so here it is and i feel like i went off track,but whatever.i’m going to just go cry over peeta now
Peeta Mellark: Spirit of Strength
Capitol Couture has been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite, and here they are! Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.
As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait. Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna’s dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker’s son. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.
Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.
Perhaps three of the most depressing — subtle — things about Mockingjay are 1. how she imagines her reunion with Peeta
Alive and well — maybe not well but alive and here. Away from Snow. Safe. Here. With me. In a minute I can touch him. See his smile. Hear his laugh. … I’m lightheaded with giddiness. What will I say? Oh, who cares what I say? Peeta will be ecstatic no matter what I do. He’ll probably be kissing me anyway. I wonder if it will feel like those last kisses on the beach in the arena, the ones I haven’t dared let myself consider until this moment. … I’m disappointed that [my] face wasn’t the first he saw when he woke…
versus how it actually turns out.
…but he sees me now. His features register disbelief and something more intense that I can’t quite place. Desire? Desperation? Surely both, for he sweeps the doctors aside, leaps to his feet and moves toward me. I run to meet him, my arms extended to embrace him. His hands are reaching for me, to caress my face, I think.
My lips are just forming his name when his fingers lock around my throat. (all of the above, Mockingjay, pgs. 176 - 177)
and 2. the fact that this happens at midnight. At fucking midnight. Katniss keeps her promise to see him at midnight, and it’s subtle but Collins slips it in there…and it kills me every time.
It must be midnight, it must be tomorrow when Haymitch pushes open the door. ”They’re back. We’re wanted in the hospital.” My mouth opens with a flood of questions that he cuts off with “That’s all I know.” — Mockingjay, pg. 175
and 3. she keeps that promise more than once. “I’ll see you at midnight,” is everywhere.
At midnight, I’m standing outside the door to his cell, hospital room. — Mockingjay, pg. 229
and another one…
At midnight, I crawl out of my tent and position myself on a camp stool near the heater to take my watch with Jackson. — Mockingjay, pg. 269
And “The Hanging Tree” is there, and it reminds her of Peeta, perhaps because midnight is there as well…
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree. (various page numbers)
Oh, and as far as the east coast goes…the teaser was released at midnight…I’m wondering if that’s just a coincidence…
Of all a deer’s senses, their eyesight is the worst.
I don’t know what I was expecting but this was so much better than that
The Fault in Our Stepbrothers
“We s t a r-c r o s s e d l o v e r s of District 12, who
s u f f e r e d so much and e n j o y e d s o l i t t l e the rewards of our victory, do not seek our fans’ favor, grace them with our smiles, or catch their kisses. We are u n f o r g i v i n g.”
so i was going through some folders and i found this
the tears were [and still are] flowing
AND THE TEARS STREAM DOWN MY FACE
