the hunger games pick up lines

2

This line from Beetee has stood out to me since my first viewing of Mockingjay Part 1. It feels deliberate. Beetee tackles all these projects, whether they be for the Capitol or the Rebels, as if they are puzzles to be solved. He always looks at it for the “science of it all”, without thinking of consequences. He doesn’t figure in collateral damage or the end result. It’s all the science. Like the science of making bombs that explode not once, but twice.

ok let's pretend josh and the leech are "together" and let's pretend he doesn't care what the media say about him but now we are talking about his job which he says that he loves and some day wants to be a director i dont know if the gossip is true but man what a bad reputation for you for people wants to hire you in the future if your"girlfriend" cause such a mess on the set of your job.well down josh well down(i wonder what tick her now no that he she needs a reason)

Up to this point, Josh has always been known as a complete professional who takes his work seriously and respects the people that work with him - from the director to the craft service people. So what has happened that all of a sudden Josh feels it’s okay to shit on the hard-working people that are the backbone of his series?  Because having your girlfriend and pals on set joking around and being rude while everyone is trying to work is completely unacceptable. Please look at this:

You can clearly see Josh trying to work. Grips and other technical people are on hand setting up scenes, and Claudia thinks this would be a perfect time to flip off the fans and that blind about her being disruptive on set by - yes, being disruptive on set again. This is her “fuck you” to the fans, to the hard working crew and even to her “boyfriend” who is actually trying to concentrate and deliver his lines and make his series a success. How disrespectful is this to everyone?

I don’t know where this blind came from, but I have to believe this is true. Her conduct continues to show a disregard for anyone around her. 

Think about you at work trying to finish an important project and your co-worker brings in his “girlfriend” and friends and they are running around and laughing and taking selfies while your trying to get work done. For these people - the crew - this is their livelihood. This is how they put food on their table, pay their rent, put their kids through college, and they work 10 - 15 hours a day trying to get their work done, so they can go back to their families. And here we have a bunch of unemployed leeches goofing around while the crew breaks their backs. 

AND JOSH ALLOWS IT!

He repeatedly brings someone on set who is at the very least a distraction and at most a liability to production.  

Why does Josh allow this?

What happened to the Josh that cared?

This Josh doesn’t respect the opportunity he’s been given, is inconsiderate to Hulu, the producers, the writers and crew who have entrusted him with carrying Future Man, and he doesn’t respect his fans who have supported him all these years.

Claudia is clearly flipping off the fans and is gleeful to show herself on set.

Maybe Josh doesn’t care  Maybe he thinks Future Man is beneath him, and he’s just picking up a paycheck to continue to pay for poker and endless partying for him and his crew.  

Because if The Hunger Games was a “bit of a sell out,” then Future Man on a streaming service must be embarrassing to Josh. 

Every role he gets should be treated with gratitude and respect.  Instead Josh seems to not want to support it and doesn’t care if people in his life mock the work he is doing.

Maybe Josh is just too nice of a guy.  Maybe he doesn’t like confrontations.  But the bottom line is that at some point, you have to become an adult and address the people in your life who are taking advantage of you and hurting you and tell them that it will end or they will be eliminated from your life.  This is affecting his career, and people will not support his projects.  If he doesn’t care, why should we?

Smutty goodness!

Many thanks to my beta @thestuckinbed!

Katniss turned her head and looked at Peeta sleeping on the other side of the bed. The light from the early morning sun peeking through the heavy curtains made his face and bare chest glow faintly. There was a smile playing on his lips. He was a beautiful man.

She reached over and slowly traced the shape of his face, down the length of his neck, and along his arm. She picked up his hand and slowly followed the lines on his palm.

Read on FFN or AO3.

One day I want to go out to a book store or a convention or to a movie wearing my favourite fandom shirt. And I want to bump into a cute, awkward guy who either recognises my top or is even wearing a similar one and makes some silly cheesy pick up line to do with the fandom and then that’s it, we’ll fall in love. Why isn’t my life like this?

LOFT 89 *wildest dreams*

10/20/15

Let me just say that what happened on 10/20/15…I was/am still shocked. They say it happens when you need it most and when you least expect it, and that is 100% accurate.

 We’d had these tickets for a year. They were first row lower level behind the B-Stage, and watching the show from that point of view was already more than I could have asked for. S/O to Ticketmaster for being kind to me on the day tickets were released.

 OK. So Lexington is my hometown, and my friend (Mariah) and I were meeting two of my friends that I met for the first time at Speak Now in Lexington four years ago  (Conner and Delani). They road tripped for the occasion because they are beautiful people inside and out. Mariah and I re-created the safari outfits from the “Wildest Dreams” music video cause I’m “Wildest Dreams” AF (little did I know that later I would be even more wildest dreams AF). Conner and Delani were dressed as the real-life Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, sporting cat ears, secondhand reversible scrubs, and a $6 police badge from party city. It was legit and awesome. Once we got to the arena we ran to them, and I mean full on running hugs up the escalator. At this point it was about 3:30/4ish, and we were literally SO excited to all be together at last. We went to grub at Cosi (cah-see, coh-see, coh-say, however you like to say it lololol). After that we went to go sit in line to get in, and that lasted for about an hour. After waiting, I swear it was like the hunger games to get into the Taylor Nation booth. People were sprinting and I was just gilly gallying, we were all laughing and just soaking up the moment. I think we took about 30 guitar picks and ended up with about 6? Those things are hard to keep hold of. We took our pictures, and Mariah and I re-created the “say you’ll see me again” pose, which led to cheers and many “YAS-es” throughout the line. It’s a pretty dope picture if I do say so myself.

SHOW TIME. We get to our seats and are SPEECHLESS. Literally like five feet above the sound booth, so when Taylor was raised we were practically at eye-level with her. Vance Joy was insanely talented per usual, I love when he makes everyone take out their phones to make the arena look like a night sky. His accent is cool; I’d like to have it. ANYWAYS so it’s about to be Taylor time and Andrea made her way through the crowd. Obviously we wanted to say hi, but there were a lot of people and we were sure we would be able to wave at some point. “Welcome To New York” started playing, and all chill was lost between us. I honestly don’t know how we didn’t fall off the ledge during the show cause we were going SO INSANE. After a few songs, Momma Swift brought a bunch of people into the sound booth, so at that time we kind of just decided there probably wasn’t going to be a loft, so we took that out of our minds. During IKYWT, Andrea was glaring at us cause we were jumping and trying to look sexy all at the same time. It was great. We noticed she kept looking at us randomly throughout the show, but we still just danced our little hearts and didn’t think anything of it. It was during “Bad Blood” when the moment clicked (later Andrea told us this) when we set ourselves a part from everyone else. We SCREAMED and I mean SCREAMED the “you forgive, you forget, but you never let it go” line during the bridge, and she turned her body so fast toward us and started laughing, disappearing into the arena a few moments later. The only thing we were focused on was listening and jamming to “Wildest Dreams” because that was the next song. We had no idea our night was about to change. If you’ve seen the video, you’ll be able to see how totally in the moment and into the song we were, when out of nowhere Andrea waltzes right on next to us and started dancing along. Mariah smacked me in the stomach, so I turned, and my face probably went blank. I knew what was about to happen, and I could not believe my eyes. Andrea leans in, and lets us know that we were being invited to LOFT 89! Even writing this out right now feels unreal. I honestly could not tell you if OOTW was performed that night because I was SO wonderstruck literally. My two sisters and mom were about 15 rows behind us, and I ran up to the them, holding the pass up, fighting back tears, while dancing to “this night is flawless, don’t you let it go, don’t you let it go…in your wildest dreams.” I cannot explain the happiness I felt in that moment, it’s unexplainable. I was on a different planet. Never in a million years did I EVER think in my WILDEST DREAMS I would be holding a Loft 89 pass…just…unreal man. I ran to the bathroom and tried to make myself look not as sweaty as I was, cause I jammed hard to Shake It Off.

LOFT TIME. We gathered in our section (the Delta Sig guys were also going to their own loft, I have friends in that fraternity so it was awesome seeing that they got to hang out with Taylor too). We went over the rules, and then we were taken back. I was the first in the line walking back, so seeing that overhead entrance was like walking into Narnia. My friends and I went straight to the couch, and I made a point to take a picture with a piece of pizza and a cookie in front of the neon sign cause I’m weird like that. We hung out, got in the photo booth, and just walked around for about 40 minutes. I’m pretty sure loft was smaller than normal because they set up two different ones, one for Delta Sig and one for us. After waiting a bit, Taylor casually walked right on in, and man she is a beautiful girl. Chill was surprisingly kept cool, there’s just something about her presence that is so welcoming and calming. She went to the left first, so we were the very last group. While we waited we talked to Momma Swift for a while. I know everyone says this, but she seriously is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She made a point to make sure we felt right at home. She told us that she’d been keeping an eye out for us the entire show, and we’re convinced that she waited until “Wildest Dreams” on purpose. Anyways, Taylor made her rounds and ultimately made her way to the couch.

 “HEY GUYS! I watched you all the entire show, I knew I was going to see you here. The Hi BAE sign was great” (she said something along those lines).

 We talked to her for a solid 10-15 minutes, no lie. It was a long time! She was so sweet, and so genuine. She told Mariah that she looked perfect in her outfit. Conner talked to her about something very personal, and Taylor was so so so kind and caring about it. Delani told her about how she almost ran out of gas the night before and hit a raccoon, so she had Taylor sign her gas receipt (LOL). After we took our picture, Taylor and I were still sitting on the couch. I looked at her and really just thanked her for being brave with her music, because without that I would not have found my passion for music and songwriting. I told her how I made it to the Top 150 on The Voice this season with “Wildest Dreams,” and she was very impressed and gave me a huge high five and said like, “yea dude, that’s awesome!” Then we stood up, and I will never in my life forget this moment. I told her I just released an EP, her face zoomed at me, then she looked so intently at me and said, “I can’t wait to see what you do,” and gave me the sweetest hug. Music is my passion, and I can’t see myself doing anything else. Hearing the person that helped me realize that was something I will hold onto in my heart forever. Here’s to one day, Taylor! Maybe we’ll cross paths again sometime in the music world. She said she would look up my EP, so who knows, but just her knowing about it is more than I could have ever imagined.

 10/20/15 will be a night I will never forget with people that I will love forever. Thank you to Andrea and to everyone who has said such sweet words to my friends and I. We went in thinking we were about to see Taylor perform, and we had no idea we were going to be able to spend personal time with her.

@taylorswift – I love you. You know that. I left a letter for you, not sure if you got it or not. Keep doing you.

Whoa

So I was reading chapter 19 in The Hunger Games as part of the Mockingjay Part 2 reread, when I came across this: “But how did Peeta get away? Maybe he’d held out better against the tracker jacker poison than Cato did.” Holy crap, how did I never pick up on this line before??? Not only is this blatant foreshadowing for the hijacking, it provides something of an answer for how Peeta managed to work his way back from it at the end of Mockingjay. Peeta was always more resistant, naturally, to the tracker jacker venom! The scientist in me wishes he were a real person now for entirely different reasons than wanting to marry him (lol). This would be a fascinating thing to study. As it is, this really says a LOT about Peeta’s resilience and how much his purity of self mattered.
