“I’m surprised how little the fandom seems to discuss Peeta’s abuse. To me, his childhood with an abusive parent influences his decisions as much as Katniss’ childhood with an invisible parent. Katniss had to kill to survive, to become the parent and feed her family. Killing is about survival. For Peeta, as the victim of abuse, violence is a last resort. It’s the reason he made it through two arenas with his hands mostly clean. Katniss views his pacifism as a sign that he’s just deep-down better than most people, but it can easily be tied to a childhood of physical and verbal abuse at the hands of a woman who was supposed to protect him from harm. It explains his role as both pacifist and protector.”—bigbigbigday006 wrote this under one of her doodles, and I fell in love with the thought put into this. I agree whole-heartedly.
We done did it again! A dialogue fic written by jlalafics and bigbigbigday006 based on the Effie’s wedding dress comic!
AU where some things happen earlier than they did in MJ
Also, Peeta has actively taken up swearing!
When President Snow bombed the Seam following the 75th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen’s people burned with it. Of the few Seam residents who survived, only three are living in 12. She is awash in a sea of blonde, a stranger in her own home. Just one more reason to waste away in her empty house in the Victors Village. That didn’t sit right with the Mellark boys.
