War, terrible war. Widows, orphans, a motherless child. This was the uprising that rocked our land. Thirteen districts rebelled against the country that fed them, loved them, protected them. Brother turned on brother until nothing remained. And then came the peace, hard fought, sorely won. A people rose up from the ashes and a new era was born. But freedom has a cost. When the traitors were defeated, we swore as a nation we would never know this treason again. And so it was decreed that, each year, the various districts of Panem would offer up, in tribute, one young man and woman to fight to the death in a pageant of honor, courage and sacrifice. The lone victor, bathed in riches, would serve as a reminder of our generosity and our forgiveness. This is how we remember our past. This is how we safeguard our future.
When someone asks you if you’re ‘Team Peeta’ or 'Team Gale’
When someone takes a powerful story about unjust governments, the strength and weakness of a young girl thrust into a violent and terrifying world, and young children being forced to kill each other to make a 'point’t, and turns it into a fucking love story.
At precisely 12 AM your time, I wish you the happiest of birthdays @chiefhiccstrid!
In a short time, you’ve become one of my best friends. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without your friendship and constant love and support!
Whether we’re screaming about Hiccstrid together or just talking about everything going on in our lives, we’ve forged a friendship that is truly one in a million. At first, I was worried that our age difference wuld keep you from wanting to become friends with me (as it’s happened before with other people that I’ve tried to connect to). And even if it didn’t, I was still worried that whatever bond we shared would fade with time and wouldn’t last, and I didn’t want to have to face that kind of disappointment and loss again. But, I couldn’t be happier that all of my expectations were proven wrong! You’re truly one of a kind and I’m so grateful that the HTTYD fandom brought us together!
Hopefully, someday we’ll be able to have fun times and share experiences with each other in person! But for now, I hope you have an out of this world 21st birthday! Love you so much, Stef!
Now, I present a summation of the beautiful and insanely awesome and amazing @chiefhiccstrid in wonderful GIF form:
