To me, who was lowly born, she was the sun….” - Guren about Mahiru Maria -
Happy birthday to my sweetest Maria! ♥ (ノ≧∀≦)ノ*:・゚✧

I don’t think some of y’all understand how important having Black Panther in Civil War is to some people. When my father was growing up, Black Panther was the ONLY Black superhero he knew. My dad would run around pretending to be him. He was heartbroken when the Avengers went to Wakanda in Age of Ultron but made no mention of his favorite superhero. I got to listen to a 50 year old man talk excitedly about Black Panther being in the movie (which he hasn’t had time to see yet. He was just so excited after some of the teaser trailers) and telling me all the little tidbits about how “He is the Prince of a NATION!! He’s a DIPLOMAT!! He’s rich, he’s powerful, he is smart, he’s just so AWESOME! I wanted to BE him!!!” If a 50-year-old man can find one of the few Black superheroes relatable and still be this excited and pumped about seeing him, imagine a young Black boy who is just tired of seeing White superheroes or Black heroes in sidekick roles. 

Representation. It’s some powerful shit.

I’m Cole. I came to warn you. To help. People are coming to hurt you. You probably already know.

Peeta’s argument is that since I chose you, I now owe him. Anything he wants. And what he wants is the chance to go in and protect you.

Haymitch, Catching Fire

I don’t really understand how people can say that Peeta manipulated Katniss for his own gain. If he was truly using her, he could have killed her in the first Games or not volunteered to protect her in the second one. He could have just let her go in with Haymitch and let them figure it out themselves.

What I think people fail to understand when reading SC’s books, is that she was using these books as a vehicle to portray war, the effects it has on humanity and the ability to overcome it. If we look at it from that perspective, we see these characters as more than just two guys and a girl. 

Katniss being the protagonist and symbol for change. 

The men in her life representing the two methods to change:

Peeta being the innate good in humanity and hope that spurs us on to live.

Gale being the self-destruction in humanity and our ability to hate one another.

We get to see the different effects of each method and its consequences throughout the book. When we choose Everlark, we choose hope, the promise that life can go on, that things can be good again.

I really love the way you drew Lithuania, he looks exactly like I see him in my head :) I was wondering if you'd be willing to draw him again, and maybe with Latvia too?

So, I tried for him to look the same as he did on the last one, but I´m not sure if I succeeded? :( Uuuuh,anyway I hope you like it

Writing yourself into the story is one thing but as a prophet? That’s like M Night level doucheness.
