moving the spoiler down the tag

“I’ve known a lot of people with money, and they are definitely not worth you. And besides, if they have something nice that makes you feel inferior, we can just take it.”

“I like the way you think.”

“Well, and then they’re just, y’know, shit without anything, and you’re… you, with their stuff.”

We change bandages, handcuff Peeta back to his support, and settle down to sleep.  A few hours later, I slip into consciousness and become aware of a quiet conversation.  Peeta and Gale.  I can’t stop myself from eavesdropping.

“Thanks for the water,” Peeta says.

“No problem,” Gale replies.  “I wake up ten times a night anyway.”

“To make sure Katniss is still here?” asks Peeta.

“Something like that,” Gale admits.

There’s a long pause before Peeta speaks again.  “That was funny, what Tigris said.  About no one knowing what to do with her.”

“Well, we never have,” Gale says.

They both laugh.  It’s so strange to hear them talking like this.  Almost like friends.  Which they’re not.  Never have been.  Although they’re not exactly enemies.

“She loves you, you know,” says Peeta.  “She as good as told me after they whipped you.”

“Don’t believe it,” Gale answers.  “The way she kissed you in the Quarter Quell … well, she never kissed me like that.”

“It was just part of the show,” Peeta tells him, although there’s an edge of doubt in his voice.

“No, you won her over.  Gave up everything for her.  Maybe that’s the only way to convince her you love her.”  There’s a long pause.  “I should have volunteered to take your place in the first Games.  Protected her then.”

“You couldn’t,” says Peeta.  “She’d never have forgiven you.  You had to take care of her family.  They matter more to her than her life.”

“Well, it won’t be an issue much longer.  I think it’s unlikely all three of us will be alive at the end of the war.  And if we are, I guess it’s Katniss’s problem.  Who to choose.” Gale yawns.  “We should get some sleep.”

“Yeah,” I hear Peeta’s handcuffs slide down the support as he settles in.  “I wonder how she’ll make up her mind.”

“Oh, that I do know.”  I can just catch Gale’s last words through the layer of fur.  “Katniss will pick whoever she thinks she can’t survive without.”

Hey #CloneClub, IT’S PREMIERE DAY. *Lights 50 sparklers, jumps from a moving car, tumbles down a hill, crashes through the front window of a house and lands safely on the couch in front of the TV* 

How are you? Excited? Same. We’re so excited that, as usual, we’ll be liveblogging the premiere (tonight at 10/9c on BBC America and Space Channel) on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram, and we know a lot of #CloneClub will be liveblogging as well. 

Some of our posts and we imagine some of yours will contain light spoilers, and out of respect for those who wish to remain unspoiled we’re going to be tagging all of our spoiler posts with #OBSpoilers. This tag can be blocked in a multitude of ways, come follow us to our wall of Tumblr plugins-

We suggest either installing Tumblr Savior or XKit and blocking the tag #OBSpoilers (it’s a small wall, but rent is cheap.) With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the word from there. With either of those installed and the hashtag blocked, whenever a post pops up on your dash with that tag, the post will be hidden. Both of those websites linked above have detailed instructions on how to install and you can definitely ask around Tumblr if you run into any problems.

Can’t wait to watch the premiere with everyone tonight, we’ll see you then.
