((All right y’all. I’ve spent some time in the simulator, adding and adjusting events, making things just a little more toonish and comedic, and I think it’s finally time for me to hold my very first Hunger Games this March!!))
((In order for me to add you onto the list of tributes, I have three little rules.
1. We must be mutuals. 2. You must like this post (or inform me if you want to submit a sideblog muse). 3. You must send me an icon of your muse for use in the Games.
Until those 3 things are solid, I can’t put you on the list. Judging by how fast the slots fill up, the date is yet to be decided. Ready for needless betrayal, everybody??))
Ask/Request: Could you please write a Cato x reader? When (Y/N) watches Cato die, she believes that’s it for her. When she hears of the rebellion, her hope is renewed and she catches a rogue flight to district. Later, when she learns that Peeta and the other tributes left behind were rescued from the capitol, she also learns that Cato is with them. She can’t believe it and races to med-bay where she finds out it’s true. Cato is alive and he remembers her.
Pairing: Cato x Reader
A/N: I LOVE YOU FOR SENDING ME THIS!! It’s my first hunger games ask!!! I was thinking about it at school and realized how at 9am I can’t write for shit XD Okay and I googled more info on district twelve and saw that they named their kids like the greek and romans so the sisters name is roman. Also not sure about the blonde thing. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that district two had blonde hair… Correct me if I’m wrong!

It had been about 2 years. 2 years since the 74th annual Hunger Games. Two years since Cato was last with me. Two years since the day he died on national television for me. But it’s only been 1 week since I found out, that by some miracle, he’s alive. After hearing the news that the other tributes like Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen were still alive hope had sparked through me. Cato was, reportedly seen by some bystanders, at med-bay. Of course all of this was happening in the midst of the rebellion. But that was still no reason to stop me from running over there to go see him.
“You can’t be serious. Y/N they’ll think you’re in the rebellion! You need to stay here!”
I sighed moving around my sister to grab my jacket, “No I need to go see Cato.”
She crossed her arms over her chest and huffed, “No you aren’t going.”
I turned toward her and placed a comforting hand on her shoulder, “Aeliana, please. You can’t stop me. He’s… I love him.”
She sighed and held me at arm’s length, “I know but-”
“He was dead for two years. And now he’s suddenly alive? I have to go see him.”
“He might not even remember you. He was torn to pieces by the mutts Y/N, you know that. He can’t miraculously live through that and not have at least some brain damage.”
I shrugged, “You’re right. He’ll probably have no idea who I am or why I’m there. But I don’t care Aeliana. I need to see him. Even if he doesn’t remember… I’ll get to see with my own eyes that he is actually alive.”
Aeliana pulled me into a hug and then gave me a small smile after she pulled away, “You’re strong, you know that right?”
I grinned, “Of course I do. Do you see the shit I have to go through?”
She chuckled and swatted my arm playfully as she pushed me out the door, “Oh shut up. Don’t stay out after dark okay? I love you.”
I gave her a small smile, “I love you too.”
Then I shut the door behind me and made my way over to med-bay.
The journey there was easy. What wasn’t was avoiding all the strange looks people were giving me. The rebellion was making everyone go on edge. A women walking through the streets in a hooded coat? Definitely not comforting to them. As I walked into med-bay all eyes fell on me. I gave a curt nod and scanned the room. I froze when my eyes met a pair of vibrant blue eyes. I took a sharp intake of breath and then calmly made my way over to him, trying not to draw attention to myself.
I gasped, “You… you remember me?!”
Cato got up and wrapped his arms around me, engulfing me in his warmth.
“I never thought I’d see you again. After what happened and-”
“You really do remember me? You aren’t kidding? No one had to tell you?”
Cato snorted holding me tighter and inhaling my scent, “No one has even talked to me after they fixed me up.”
I pushed back a little and placed my hands on either side of his face, “They… you’re alive. I… You’re really alive.”
Cato grinned and pressed his lips to mine softly. The kiss didn’t last long but it was filled with meaning and passion and when he pulled away I was longing for more.
I sighed contently and leaned against him, “I’m so glad you’re back.. These have been the worst two years of my life.”
Cato smirked at me with a raised eyebrow, “Because of the rebellion?”
I grinned, “No, because I didn’t have you.”
Cato chuckled and rested his forehead against mine, “I love you so much.”
I leaned up on my tip toes and pressed my lips to his, “I love you too.”
I really really love how Snow’s motifs are white. He’s very much one-sided on an issue, extreme to the absolute core. He is washed clean in an attempt to look pure- when really the white is just to cover up the blood.
I really love how Alma Coin’s motifs have always been grey. She’s neither good nor bad, just this very grey sense of morality. She’s trying so hard to keep it light, to be the good leader of District 13, but…… It’s ultimately good but… With shades of grey, you have to be careful not to fall off the deep end, to turn too dark or light a shade. When you’re operating in greys, it’s almost inevitable to shift too close to one or the other extremes. Julienne Moore does an excellent job of playing her; she just. GOSH, ends up feeling so manipulative, in very light and fairy-like ways (I’m not sure if that makes sense but wow!)
I really love how Katniss’ motifs have always been both black and red. She is both a direct opposite to Snow, and also her own. Her morals and her symbolic stance is 100% opposite that of Snow, but she isn’t just political tool, a foil. She isn’t just Black vs White, she’s also very red, full of rage and love for her family and just. Her own person. Love it.
Not sure how the yellow fits in yet, but I’ve kinda noticed that the yellow is very Effie and Haymitch. I wanna think it’s another tool for shades of grey, only yellow is good. Yellow is on the same side as red, but it’s not as fiery, it’s not as potent.
Look at Johanna? She’s all red too, isn’t she? No black, just. RED, she’s angry, and fiery and passionate without the strict moral foil that Katniss has. dfalskjfalsdjfa;klj
Gale is almost all blacks; he’s too extreme. He’s black without Katniss’ red, without the fire and the passion, and it ends up consuming him way too much.
EVEN CAESAR it’s like?? He’s blue blue blue, he’s cool, he’s calm, he’s a cool grey blue and it just. FUCK it fits so well.
I just really love how the color schemes in these movies really REALLY hammer in these personalities and the ultimate arcs of the characters by pushing certain color schemes (I honestly can’t remember how strict the color schemes are to the books; only going off the movies). It’s so good.
