what if lance was really good at baseball, like collage scouts hanging off his every word good, and the team dosnt know, and on one of the alliance missions, and the alien for what ever reason demand the have one of their own play this game which is just baseball w/ a weird name, and none of the team gets it and for what ever reason either lance wasn't paying attention or he wasn't brought and he hear this, and is all I got this and goes to play, teams mad but he rock and their all so confused??

Yes! I love it when Lance is a pro at things back on Earth! I love it! I’ve never seen one with baseball though; usually it’s ice skating or swimming or shooting (all of which I’m a big fan of) so it’s it’s really great to see some variety!

Plus how everyone finds out, it all just kind of hits them that Lance could have easily be back on Earth, playing professionally. They realized that they easily wotiluldnt have had Lance with them at all. It really hits them hard. Especially Hunk, since they met at the Garrison. He could have easily never met his best friend.

When they get back to the castle they all ask him why he went to the Garrison when he was obviously so good at baseball.

He tells them that his father would always practice with him at night in the park, since that was the only real time when he was home. They would hit the batting cages and afterwards he would talk to Lance about the stars and tell him all the myths surrounding them. He told them how much his father wanted to go to the stars, to be able to fly up in the sky, and how his father was his hero. So when his father died, he promised himself that he was going to learn how to fly for his father.

Big group hug ensues because this kid, this tall, lanky, beautiful, gifted kid deserved a much better life than the one he’s living now.

My girlfriend is the light of my life. She treats me like I'm the only guy on this earth, and trust me there are guys who are FAR better then me. She doesn't believe she's important but I see how much she is worth. She's my stars in the night sky. She's my rose among so many thorns. She is my light and I can't imagine how my life would b w/o her. Her smile brightens each room she's in and her life gives me life. I m too grateful for her and love her a lot

Aww wow! It sounds like you two have real love there, good for you! 💘

Until this point Katniss, from where Snow sits, is out of control.  He can’t contain her and he can’t contain the Rebels, nothing he’s said or done thus far has put the thought of rebellion out of the minds of those in the Districts, but this moment when he sees Peeta die and Katniss frantic and then overjoyed that Finnick brought Peeta back to life… “it seems, under that hot pink sky with Peeta’s life in limbo I finally did.  And in doing so, I gave him the weapon he needed to break me.” (MJ 156)

Before this it was an endless battle of, Snow > discredit Katniss > weaken Rebels > win the war BUT now….now it’s so much easier to him.  He knows a much better way to weaken the Rebels would be to get Peeta…because then it would look a little more like this…

Snow > gets Peeta > weakens and incapacitates Katniss > hinders the Rebels from gaining any real ground because of the Mockingjay being too preoccupied with getting Peeta back

Snow did more than weaken and emotionally defeat Katniss, he weakened the Rebellion, and that’s what he wanted.  Because he saw just how much Katniss loved Peeta – in this one moment – he knew the best way to get at the Rebels, was to get Peeta.

Peeta had become her source of strength and protection, once that was taken away she had nothing.  She was weakened and inconsolable, and subjective.  She scrutinized everything the Rebels did and the more and more time that went by without them even considering rescuing Peeta, the less helpful she became.  She finally realized that she wasn’t helping Peeta or the Rebellion by doing nothing, so she stood up, she became the Mockingjay…and yet…

What snapped for her was them beating Peeta…

“Katniss, just this one line and you’re done today.  I promise,” says Cressida.  "‘Thirteen’s alive and well and so am I.“

I swing my arms to loosen myself up.  Place my fists on my hips.  Then drop them to my sides.  Saliva’s filling my mouth at a ridiculous rate and I feel vomit at the back of my throat.  I swallow hard and open my lips so I can get the stupid line out and go hide in the woods and – that’s when I start crying.

It’s impossible to be the Mockingjay.  Impossible to complete even this one sentence.  Because now I know that everything I say will directly be taken out on Peeta.  Result in his torture.  But not his death, no, nothing so merciful as that.  Snow will ensure that his life is much worse than death.

"Cut,” I hear Cressida say quietly.

“What’s wrong with her?” Plutarch says under his breath.

“She’s figured out how Snow’s using Peeta,” says Finnick.

There’s something like a collective sigh of regret from the semicircle of people spread out before me.  Because I know this now.  Because there will never be a way for me to not know this again.  Because, beyond the military disadvantage losing a Mockingjay entails, I am broken.

Several sets of arms would embrace me.  But in the end, the only person I truly want to comfort me is Haymitch, because he loves Peeta, too.  I reach out for him and say something like his name and he’s there, holding me and patting my back.  "It’s okay.  It’ll be okay, sweetheart.“  He sits me on a length of broken marble pillar and keeps an arm around me while I sob.

"I can’t do this anymore,” I say.

“I know,” he says.

“All I can think of is – what he’s going to do to Peeta – because I’m the Mockingjay!” I get out.

“I know.”  Haymitch’s arm tightens around me.

“Did you see?  How weird he acted?  What are they – doing to him?” I’m gasping for air between sobs, but I manage one last phrase.  "It’s my fault!“ And then I cross some line into hysteria and there’s a needle in my arm and the world slips away. – Mockingjay, pgs. 162-163

Here is where she grasps whats going on, and this is the point that Snow has won.  But his victory does not last long.  And in the end she gets Peeta back – mostly – but Snow knew that the best way to get to her was through Peeta…and through Peeta he got.

chemtrails isn't real, obama even said

Thanks Wilbr!  I am so proud to be an American.  The intelligence of the people in this country is the highest in the world.  We have a great president who really works for us.  I’m so relieved about what Obama said about chemtrails.  Now I can go on with my life and stop writing this blog.

Don’t forget!  It’s flu vaccine time.  Get pumped with heavy metals since the ones in the sky aren’t real.  It’s very important that every American have heavy metals in his body.  When the Obamacare microchip is implanted, we’ll already be used to having foreign objects in us, and it will be so much easier.  It will be very nice to be able to track where our ex boyfriends and girlfriends are so we can obsess about them even better than stalking on Facebook.

Thanks for reminding me that I live in the best country in the world, a leader to be admired by the poor people that we kill in other countries so that our wonderful corporations can take their resources.  I love America and our president, Barack Hussein Obama, who got a Nobel Peace Prize for bombing people in countries with a lot of oil and who charges poor Americans fines for not being able to afford health insurance.  What a guy!
