Here’s a snippet of what’s to come:

Peeta stared at her, appearing to struggle with an internal debate, then visibly settling into a decision. “I’ve lived here all my life and know this area like the back of my hand. I could show you around.  There’s the Spanish Fort down in St. Augustine. The botanical gardens.  Anastasia’s Island. Haven’t you been to any of these?”

Katniss shook her head, realizing when she thought about it how very little she’d actually enjoyed herself these last four years.

Peeta’s face took on an exaggerated solemnity. “I would like to rectify this situation, if you’ll let me.”

“Which situation?” Katniss laughed at his face, so serious with mock determination. How could she feel this good so easily?

“The fact that you’ve been in Panem City for - how long has it been?”

“Four years,” Katniss answered.

“Four years! And you’ve never been to any of the major sights?”  

“I was here to study. And work!  I had a scholarship to hold onto. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to pay for school.”

Peeta nodded. “That’s impressive. But now you’re a college graduate and you’ll be looking for work soon. That means you have to play the tourist before adulting duties take over your life.”

Katniss felt crestfallen when he said this. She felt like she’d already been forced to “adult” even before she’d left high school and had skipped over the playful, student-life phase that others seemed to have been able to enjoy. “I don’t think that’s going to work.”

“Why not?” Peeta asked, his blue eyes boring into hers. He’d noted her change of mood and his playfulness fell away with hers.

“Because, I’m leaving in six weeks.  Five, after this week…” she looked around as if she’d find a calendar hanging in the air between them. “I start work a week after I get home…” she trailed off.  

Peeta frowned, thinking about her words. “You’re…leaving?”

Katniss nodded. “I go back home to my family…and my fiance.”

Lmao. It has literally been months and people are still complaining about the whole:

“OMFGZ!!!!!!!!!!! Someone compared my OTP to my NOTP!!!!!!!!!!! BLASPHEMY!!!!!!!!!!11111111”



Like, yes I get that it can get annoying to see a mutual or a follower or somebody you’re following or whatever post about your NOTP or post hate about your OTP, but not everybody is gonna be like you. Not everybody is gonna agree with you.

Sooooo I guess what I’m trying to say here is…..just let people be??? Like, it’s not as if you ranting about these comparisons is gonna change anything or do anything. People will do what they want. People will ship what they want.

Lmfao XDD Like, people complain about these comparison posts being “soooo goddamn annoying” but in my opinion, you complaining about this old shit is 1000000000x more annoying.

Like honestly if you have the time to complain about people’s comparisons 24/7 then you have a little too much time on your hands.

Fandoms are important

I don’t think fandoms get enough credit. Tv shows, books, youtubers, whatever you love. They bring people together. Fandoms cross all races, nationalities, genders, sexualities, political affiliations, ages, and everything else that divides us. Fandoms bring people together to laugh and cry and enjoy, not as separate groups in battle, but as true friends.

remember when everyone was reading the hunger games and one of the major themes was how the media toned down all the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
and then the books got made into movies and the real life media toned down the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
because I still think about that sometimes

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015)

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale, Finnick, and Peeta – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
