everything is thg

I really like the theme of “controlling the narrative” that runs through THG. There’s a constant struggle between the story the Capitol wants to tell and the story that’s actually unfolding.

In ch 4…

“The commentators are not sure what to say about the crowd’s refusal to applaud. The silent salute. One says that District 12 has always been a bit backward but that local customs can be charming.”

They know that D12 has gone off-script and they have to rescue the narrative. Sanitize it. Rob it of its impact and power. Keep the Capitol in control, feeling superior.

You love him. I’m not saying in what way. Maybe you don’t know yourself. But anyone paying attention could see how much you care about him.

get to know me meme [18/50 relationships]: Katniss Everdeen & Peeta Mellark 

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that. So after, when he whispers, ‘You love me. Real or not real?’ I tell him, ‘Real.’”

Cookies. A pin. I am getting all kinds of gifts today. Madge gives me one more. A kiss on the cheek. Then she’s gone and I am left thinking that maybe Madge really has been my friend all along.

If Madge hadn’t died, she could have run District 13.

another meme i won’t finish: female characters [2/20]→ katniss everdeen 

“My spirit. This is a new thought. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it suggest’s I’m a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It’s not as if I’m never friendly. Okay, maybe I don’t go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but I do care for some people.”
