Prompt 27: Katniss’s father is an undocumented worker, Peeta is a sympathetic federal agent sent to investigate or an employer willing to do anything to help. [submitted by @567inpanem]
Author’s Note: I’m late (as usual) but I went for the second option on this one. I jumped at this prompt because of my own feeling about this whole situation. Hope I didn’t hijack a lovely prompt by being politically didactic. I relied on my experiences with my family regarding picking fruit and the migration of workers as they follow the different harvest, together with the research on how the ICE conducts raids in this current political climate. It’s a different world from when my grandfather was a migrant worker.
Jennifer Lawrence killed one of my favorite scenes where Buttercup is there and Katniss screams Prim is dead. She was a mess sobbing and spitting and I’m so happy they didn’t make her pretty cry or anything like that. It was all raw emotion and it made me so emotional just like it did in the book. I don’t think anyone could’ve delivered the scene like Jennifer did and I’m so happy they casted her in the first place.
Can you maybe make an arranged marriage drabble? I'm in love with Just What I needed and really want you to update... but I want to see your take on this. Please? Maybe?
I love Arranged Marriage drabbles! But.. I don’t think this is what you wanted…
Handmaiden Katniss/Prince Peeta… wohoo
The crowd roared as one of the knights took another hit in the chest, the princess did not. Katniss looked diagonally to Princess Odelia gasping behind the veil that did nothing to hide her round angelic cheeks.
Katniss could never understand the world’s fascination with combat, it was a cruel entertainment, pitting the world’s royalty against one another for more wealth. Because greed did not already rule enough people.
We bought this little doll of Yukon Cornelius two years ago because we needed to hit a certain price for free shipping. He normally sits on top of the 21-year-old bottle of Macallan we have on the bar but he has finally been put to good use because of this snowstorm.
