I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE THE HUNGER GAMES CAME OUT.
I have never been a huge fan of the movies, from the first time I saw the first movie. But even still, this date is important to me, because the hype of the first movie was what got me to read the books. And my life has literally never been the same since. Everything about me today, from my newfound career path to my significantly better mental health, has all been a result of reading these books. They’re not just a work of fiction to me, they were life-changing. They reached me at exactly the time I needed them most, and they got through to me in a way like nothing else ever had. I’ve met some of my favorite people because I read these books. I may become distracted by other things as time goes by, but nothing else ever, ever take the place that The Hunger Games has in my heart. It is still my favorite story, ever.
awwww bless your anon for being able to experience thg for the first time! all the fun without any of the drama!!!!
omg ain’t that the damn truth lol but maybe the new generation of Everlark writers/THG fans will bring their own brand of drama to the fandom. i want to wrap my anon in bubble wrap and hold them tight.
“Good night,” I whisper to the bow in my hand and feel it go still. I raise my left arm and twist my neck down to rip off the pill on my sleeve. Instead my teeth sink into flesh. I yank my head back in confusion to find myself looking into Peeta’s eyes, only now they hold my gaze. Blood runs from the teeth marks on the hand he clamped over my nightlock. “Let me go!” I snarl at him, trying to wrest my arm from his grasp.
