Can we talk about how hard agreeing to this must be for Katniss? She’s been fighting her whole life. She fought to keep her sister and her mother alive for all those years. She fought in the 74th Hunger Games and fought through the agony of surviving through it. She fought through the 75th Hunger Games, and is now fighting through being without Peeta. She’s seen countless people die right in front of her, yet here she is, agreeing to fight. Inevitably agreeing to witness more people die. She knows she might be the peoples’ last hope, and as easy as it would be to step down from her position of The Mockingjay, The Symbol of the Rebellion, she persists on, because that’s the kind of person Katniss Everdeen is.
"There is a point in every young person’s life when you realize that the youth that you’ve progressed through and graduate to some sort of adulthood is equally as messed up as where you’re going."
Any association with the Mockingjay symbol is forbidden.
I honestly appreciate the switch in appearance that Francis Lawrence made with the peacekeeper uniform because I didn’t like the fact that we could see the peacekeepers face in the first film.
It felt too personal. I don’t want to see their face. I want them to look like machined killers without a beating heart or a future or a life outside of “keeping the peace” by murdering innocent people. The best part of having their faces covered is that they’re all the same, they don’t have differences that would make us want to know who they are individually. Their dark masks reflect only one thing back, suffering and death.
These uniforms are terrifying because you can’t relate to them, you don’t see who they are, and the unknown is a scary thing. You can’t see any sign of sympathy in their eyes. They’re just masked killers with guns.
I JUST LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES SERIES SO MUCH IT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME I WILL NEVER STOP LOVING THIS SERIES
And a traitor.
But at the moment, I don’t care. Not what he says, or who he says it for, only that he is still capable of speech.
We need to unite these people out there. She’s the face of this rebellion. They’ll follow her.
They’ve still got him groomed. But underneath the paint that cannot cover the bags under his eyes, and the fine clothes that cannot conceal the pain he feels when he moves, is a person badly damaged.
IMAGINE PEETA’S SOFT SMILE WHEN KATNISS SAYS “I’M NOT GOING TO BE A PIECE IN THEIR GAME” AND HE JUST LOOKS AT HER WITH SO MUCH ADMIRATION AND LOVE
