She [Suzanne Collins] told me she was working on a retelling of the Theseus myth – a story that became The Hunger Games. And she did it beautifully. In the Theseus myth, Crete is the evil empire. They have subjugated Greece, and every year as a show of fealty, the Greeks must send fourteen tributes – seven young men, seven young women – to the Cretan capital to descend into the Labyrinth and fight the Minotaur. None ever return, until Theseus breaks the cycle. Why does The Hunger Games resonate? Because Suzanne did a marvelous job reworking an ancient story that speaks to every age – an oppressive government with unreasonable demands, a conquered people trying to maintain their dignity, a hero who must decide to risk everything for a cause.
—  Rick Riordan about reading myths, Suzanne Collins and The Hunger Games

I looooove Feilong’s long hair, but I’ll admit that the short ‘do works too. he may have given up on life, but he’s still got the skills, which are literally saving his ass

baller move from Yoh. obviously, he’s only there to protect Feilong because Asami told him to, but going barehanded against a blade is taking it to extreme

Feilong only woke up from his 'my loved ones are dead and I’m in jail so I hate everything’ trance only because of Asami. is it weird that people are going to Asami in order to revive a Chinese organization? maybe because they think Asami brought it down?
