is this everlark or everthorne

Hubs took a pic of the cashier’s tat and sent it to me. And then he left without bothering to ask her if she was on Tumblr or active in the fandom. Anyone know this person? Whoever you are!! I have a pic of your arm on my phone. And I think I could write a story about it. 😉

Chapter 13 is up!

Huge thanks to @javistg for being such a supportive beta (go read her stuff).

This chapter has some Gadge. There’s Everlark on the horizon.

“Anyone want to go do some target practice today?” Gale asked as he took a bite.

“Ooh, me!” Becca said. “I’m getting so much better.”

“You are.” Katniss said with a proud smile. “Sam-Sam?”

Sam shrugged. “I guess.”

“You guess?” Gale asked.

Sam shrugged again. “Are we really going to do family things when we aren’t a family anymore?”

“We’re never going to stop being a family, Sam.” Gale said firmly.

“Then why don’t you want to be married to Mom anymore?” Sam demanded.

Katniss placed a hand on Sam’s arm. “You don’t need to worry about it, okay? This is between me and Dad. If you don’t want to go to the range, that’s fine.”

Read it on FFN or AO3!

People think that book lovers are quiet, shy, little adorable humans who are innocent and kind.
But they don’t know about WHAT we read.
They don’t know the shows we watch.
They don’t know about the fan art.
They don’t know about the fan fiction.
They don’t know about the Smut.

THEY. DON’T. KNOW.

”I don’t stand a chance if he doesn’t get better. You’ll never be able to let him go. You’ll always feel wrong about being with me.”

“The way I always felt wrong kissing him because of you,” I say.

Gale holds my gaze. “If I thought that was true, I could almost live with the rest of it.”

“It is true,” I admit. “But so is what you said about Peeta.”

I find people funny who say Everlark is unhealthy but Everthorne is sweet.

Everlark: Katniss loves Peeta. She fell in love with him slowly over time and by the end she was in love with him and couldn’t live without him. He overcame what the Capitol tried to do and the only reason Katniss didn’t want children before was because she didn’t want to have kids that would go into the games. There are no games, therefore she is happy to start a family. He had only one moment of being petty when he was hurt and after that he was only ever doing things for her, including the may times he attempted to sacrifice himself for the sake of her happiness.

Everthorne: Katniss only ever kisses Gale when he’s sad, she kisses him out of sympathy and because she feels guilty like she has to, never because she actually wants to or is attracted to him. Throughout the series it is made clear that Katniss either only sees him as a friend or isn’t sure because so much is happening. Not to mention he chooses the worst possible times to harass her about who she wants to be with. And whether he was making the right choices or not, he chose plans that would cause the death of innocent civilians while Katniss fought hard to stop them and we all know how that ended for them both.

The Hunger Games love triangle

Today I might lose both of them.
I try to imagine a world where both Gale’s and Peeta’s voices have ceased. Hands stilled. Eyes unblinking. I’m standing over their bodies, having a last look, leaving the room where they lie. But when I open the door to step out into the world, there’s only a tremendous void. A pale gray nothingness that is all my future holds.

Making knots. Making knots. No word. Making knots. Tick-tock. This is a clock. Do not think of Gale. Do not think of Peeta.

The words of “The Hanging Tree” replay in my head. Gale and Peeta. Peeta and Gale.

MJ, chapter 12

On tumblr I’ve always said that there is no love triangle in The Hunger Games trilogy and that it’s something Lionsgate came up with. But today I was rereading chapter 12 of Mockingjay and it struck me how love triangily it sounds. (lol, triangily, is that even a word :))

I’m an Everlark shipper through and through, but doesn’t these quotes sound like love triangle to you? I would love to hear your opinions on this.

Although I know Katniss never has any romantic feelings towards Gale, she does connect him with “The Hanging Tree” here and once again later in the book. And that song is about lovers….

What do y'all think?

Elaborate Lives preview (in case I don’t get the editing done tonight)

    Katniss lay awake all night. She’d let the girls tell Gale about the evening and kept quiet. She was still reeling from the kiss and all the lifetimes that had flashed through her mind just before.

    As she finally gave up on sleep, she rolled out of bed and a realization hit her. If she’d experienced all those lifetimes with Peeta, then Gale must have had that with Madge.

    And the thought suddenly made Katniss very angry.

    She walked down the stairs and stood in the doorway to Gale’s room. He had a smile playing on his lips as he dreamed.

    His alarm started buzzing and he rolled over to shut it off. Katniss walked away so he wouldn’t know she’d been watching him like a creeper. She started the coffee pot and headed up to take a shower.

AU : Peeta´s and Katniss´ son meets a girl in the woods.

He just managed to pull an arrow out of the animals heart when unfamiliar voice warned him. “I wouldn´t touch that if I were you!”. He turned and saw a girl. “I´m sorry I just wanted to look. That was a good shot.” She smiled.“Yeah, I know.” She looked familiar, like she belonged here in the District 12, but he was certain he never saw her before. “It runs in family. My father was hunter.” There was something sad in the way she said it so he asked: “Was?”

“He died. 5 years ago” - She replied shortly. 

“I´m sorry.” - He said gently.

She just nodded. “Do you maybe know where the lake is?”

“Yeah, just go that way and in 15 minutes you´ll get there.”

“Thank you.”

“I´d like to know your name before you go.”

“Rosie. Rosie Hawthorne.”
