Conflicting emotions cross Thresh’s face. He lowers the rock and points at me, almost accusingly. “Just this one time, I let you go. For the little girl. You and me, we’re even then. No more owed. You understand?”
I did know Rue. She wasn’t just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers that grow in the meadow by my house. I hear her in the mockingjay song. I see her in my sister Prim. She was too young, too gentle, and I couldn’t save her.
IT’S A PHOTOSET OF SMALL FIGHTY LADIES!! My favorite thing! First we’ve got fantroll Rahggi Linnea, with cameos from my Sothis Alyaqh and an enormous Black Rain Frog, and then Rue (whom you may already have seen). I gave my best shot at drawing her as her birdy self and then my best shot at a human version, which was a lot of fun! I imagine even as a human she still kind of moves like a bird…maybe I’ll do a little animation sometime. ;>
