Okay so Effie gets a bit huffy when Katniss and Peeta make jokes at Haymitch’s expense and she reminds them in a pretty prickly way that Haymitch is all they’ve got when they go in the arena so “Laugh away!” Then she hops around the vomit in her pointy shoes and leaves the room.

So what’s up with that? Was she upset because the teens appeared rude and ungrateful? If rudeness was the issue, wouldn’t she just say, “How rude!” and move on, but she seems to almost be defending Haymitch (who she just said had “a lot to learn about presentation”)…so anyway just wondering if her comment had any traces of defending Haymitch or if it was purely a reaction to Teenagers These Days!

And if she was defending Haymitch, then why?

Are you ready for this? We’re kicking off another round of RETHG where we read, create, fangirl/guy and dissect our favorite books and OTP. 

Every week we read two chapters which are accompanied with questions and prompts that engage the fandom in various ways. You can choose to write/think/create/act on those, or do what you feel inspired to do. Just tag with #rethg and your post will be blogged on @everlarkedalways and many other blogs that regularly participate!

We always end the reread with a rewatch where we take a specific time to corporately watch the movies together! It’s definitely one of my favorite fandom things I’ve ever participated in. Join us! You will not regret it. :)

Let’s do this, THG fandom!

There. He’s done it again. Dropped a bomb that wipes out the efforts of every tribute who came before him.

Well, maybe not. Maybe this year he has only lit the fuse on a bomb that the victors themselves have been building. Hoping someone would be able to detonate it. Perhaps thinking it would be me in my bridal gown. Not knowing how much I rely on Cinna’s talents, whereas 

Peeta needs nothing more than his wits.

We all know the Hayffie kiss was perfect and familiar and didn’t seem like the first time they’ve kissed. So what I want to know is, how did that first kiss happen? Did it start with some petty argument about tributes or outfits or something? I NEED TO KNOW.

At least we have fanfiction.
