[Thank you all so much for the support you given my little dragon and me! In honour of this, on October 31st, we will be using a random number generator to decide who gets the Halloween Treat of one of these prizes! Good luck!]
Send me “Ruffle” For my muses reaction to your muse randomly coming up and running their fingers through mines hair.
She groaned, the crack in the curtains leaking through her eyelids making her head ache. Her skin the same temperature as his hand as he ran his fingers through her hair, but she liked the feeling of him playing with her hair. She kicked off the blankets, the room was entirely too hot.
so imagine if after katniss dies in the arena rue becomes the capitol’s darling
the substitute sister of katniss everdeen, who went into the arena volunteering for her real sister
and rue is COMPLETELY GENUINE when she stands up on the podium and urges the capitol to turn their thoughts to katniss’ actual family and the idea catches; prim in 12 is suddenly the figurehead, the face of those left behind; reporters from the capitol come knocking on her door asking for her thoughts and instead of turning them away tells them on camera about the angry cat katniss kept for her even when they were starving, about katniss learning to hunt for them, about katniss putting her name in the reaping bowl once, twice, eleven times, so prim wouldn’t have to do it and wouldn’t have to go hungry
and then the fires start, the riots start and snow sends out a memo for the 75th hunger games to include former victors and the family of former victors only
which in 12 would mean prim
and rue and prim go into the arena together (haymitch inherits prim and hatches his plan in the background) and rue PROMISES to do well for prim because her sister died for her when she didn’t have to and then one night around a camp fire rue notices that prim can’t look her in the eyes and she says ‘i loved her too’
