But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry And every time you walk out, the less I love you Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true

Between the realization that he has my hat (shape, hair (lack there-of), facial hair), and the cheering on from various people, including quirkinitup,, I have decided on disneybounding Dawson for Dapper Day!
It’s kinda funny to watch my mom’s slow descent into the Hunger Games.
Initially she refused to read it, associate with it, think about it because the idea of “kids killing each other” just didn’t work with her. But I still got her to go to the first movie with me and “yeah, it was good. If a movie about kids killing each other can be good”.
Then I took my best friend to see the second movie (she hasn’t read the books and doesn’t know how it ends) and she got so into it. Way more than the first one which freaked her out. Every so often she’d look over at me (The second reaping, Cinna, the fog, THE ENDING) and make angry pterodactyl noises because it was “so intense”.
Then I offered to take my mom to see the second movie and she said, “Yeah, okay” and Suze kept telling her “It is so intense. Like, you have no idea how intense it is, oh my god. I’ll hold your hand. It’ll be okay.” and my mom was like “I can handle intense, you don’t have to worry”.
Then halfway through the movie I look over at my mom and she’s crying. I don’t remember when she started crying or why but I remember she was. So something resonated.
Then, finally we were leaving the theatre and she said, “How long did it take you to read the full series?” Apparently she thought it was just about killing kids but once she realized that it was an actual social statement (and that it was essentially a remake of Hogan’s Heroes-in her words, not mine) she started to appreciate it. So, I think I finally won and I’m going to be able to get my mom to read the series. This is like the greatest victory for me, you don’t even know.
Also, she thinks the “Team Peeta” and “Team Gale” thing is stupid. “It’s not about them or her, it’s about surviving in a system that is doing everything in its power to control and kill you. The "love” story is just a side-effect… it doesn’t stop me from wanting to hug Peeta and tell his it’ll all be okay… OH MY GOD WAIT. WHAT HAPPENS TO PEETA? AND JOHANNA. Oh my God JOHANNA".
And this is why I love my mom. and why i fear for her sanity during Mockingjay.
