“My children, who don’t know they play on a graveyard…. but there are much worse games to play. I’ll tell them how I survive it. I’ll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in anything because I’m afraid it could be taken away. That’s when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I’ve seen someone do. It’s like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years.” - Mockingjay written by Suzanne Collins
“I love that Effie’s really devoted to Katniss Everdeen. I certainly think that Katniss has very few people she can trust when she gets to District 13 and Effie takes pride in being one of the people she can trust.” -Elizabeth Banks
“When I see you again, it’ll be a different world.”
There’s no reason to believe they’re going to see each other again. He has nightlock on hand as “last-resort stuff,” and she’s leaving on a suicide mission to kill Snow, but he tells her this anyway. Because he’s Peeta, and he always thinks of the right thing to say. Hopeful, encouraging, and sweet, he gives her his faith that she can change the world.
She breathes in the sound of his words and buries her face in his neck because her boy with the bread is back.
She holds onto him for a moment, allowing herself to be comforted by his presence, and then she lets him go.
