Remember that time Peeta earnestly told Finnick that coal turns to pearls, and Finnick was all like WTF no it doesn’t dumbass, and Katniss laughed because Peeta wasn’t dumb, it was an inside joke between her and Peeta BECAUSE THEY LOVE EACH OTHER.
Look. I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED OKAY. I feel like I got hit by a Danish freight train. One minute I’m all “that Hannibal dude looks weird and creepy” and the next minute I’m all “goddamn he looks good in a sewer covered in goo, I’d do him.”
I DON’T KNOW.
All I know is he does that wicked little smile and my knees turn to jelly.
