The holidays had always been one of Asher’s favorite times of the year. Sure, there was always the constant reminder that his family was the epitome of your typical holiday magazine photo shoot with the big bows, the fancy dinnerware and the formal dresses, but, it was the one time of the year that his whole family was together, and he loved it. It was Christmas Eve, and Asher had been excited for this day ever since the boy could remember, and he was even more excited for his extended family to meet both Eli and Zoey. With his tux in his bag the boy moved through the Bennett’s house; a place he’d become all too familiar. He knocked slowly on Zoey’s door and then opened it walking into the bedroom. “How are my two favorite people in the entire world?”
Odesta is my favorite ship and always will be. Finnick and Annie’s relationship is much up to interpretation and one’s own ideas about how it started and progressed, but no matter how one thinks their love story began, this is certain: they are each other’s whole entire world. These are two people who have been dehumanized to no end. Finnick has been seen as nothing but a sex symbol and an object for the Capital citizens to do with what they want, while Annie has been diminished to just a “mad girl”. I think a big part of their relationship was making each other feel human again after everything they’d been through and finding a kind of peace and family together. And even though one doesn’t know how they met or how long they knew each other, it’s easy to tell how much Finnick and Annie care for each other through scenes like the jabberjay attack, the reunion, and their wedding. Finnick and Annie had a completely mutual need for one another that, in my opinion, is unparalleled to any other ship I’ve seen. They were each other’s rocks, the one person that they loved more than anything else in the world. I love that they love each other so much and that after all they’ve been through, just being able to be together is enough for them. They really are indivisible.
A huge thank you to panempropaganda for giving me a chance to share my love for my absolute favorites, finnick and annie. Also a big shout out to my friends and everyone in the odesta community on tumblr who are so imaginative and loving as well as everyone in the hunger games fandom! Let’s make the days leading up to mockingjay part 2 great, as well as the time after <3

So, on July 18th I met two of my favorite people in the whole entire world. I waited an hour to meet Damon, and it was worth every minute. When I got up to Damon, he asked me how my day was and I told him that it was great, and that I was so happy to meet him, and then he hugged me, and then we took a picture together, and I asked him to sign my ticket, and he did. After, I told him that I loved him so much, and he just got the biggest smile on his face, and then he said it back. I was beyond happy I could meet him.
While my friend and I were in line waiting to meet Damon, she overheard some girl talking about Jason and how he was at the Stay Happy Stay Weird tent, and so I literally hugged Damon, took a picture with him, and booked it over to the tent. He wasn’t standing at the tent, and I literally lost all hope in meeting him. I had been waiting to meet him all day. Then, I turned my head and seen him standing there taking pictures with a fan, and I literally said out loud “it’s happening!!” and people just looked at me like I was stupid. I literally ran up to Jason, hugged him, and told him how much he meant to me, and how I had been waiting on meeting him all day, and he just smiled, and said “aw, well I’m glad you met me!” and then we took a picture together and I told him I loved him and then we hugged again. I’m still in shock that it happened and it happened July 18th. People think it’s weird when I say that a Youtuber has helped me. But Jason has. Every time I watch one of his videos, I instantly feel happy again, and he’s what I go to when I’m sad. He’s been the only source of happiness for me for a little while now, and I’m beyond thankful that I got to meet him.
