MY NERDNESS IS NOT READY FOR ANY OF THIS
Peeta was taken prisoner. He is a l i v e. He is a traitor but alive. I have to keep him alive.
pst, guys…we’ve technically gotten more Peeta than anyone…please tell me you’re not all complaining? because, seriously you really think we could handle this
together at the same time?
WAITING FOR ANY NEWS FOR MOCKINGJAY:
WHEN WE GOT THE PRESIDENT SNOW’S ADDRESS,THE REBELS ADDRESS AND CAPITOL COUTURE:
WHEN WE FINALLY GOT AN OFFICIAL TRAILER:
AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME RUMORS ARE SPREADING THAT NICK AND JEN BROKE UP AND IT GIVES JEN A BAD REPUTATION LIKE
BUT WE SHOULD NOT WORRY, WE ALL KNOW JENNIFER WILL BE FINE BECAUSE HER ROCK IS WITH HER
I couldn’t agree more. He would’ve been an excellent mouthpiece. And who did they fish out of the arena instead? Me, who won’t cooperate.
Perhaps three of the most depressing — subtle — things about Mockingjay are 1. how she imagines her reunion with Peeta
Alive and well — maybe not well but alive and here. Away from Snow. Safe. Here. With me. In a minute I can touch him. See his smile. Hear his laugh. … I’m lightheaded with giddiness. What will I say? Oh, who cares what I say? Peeta will be ecstatic no matter what I do. He’ll probably be kissing me anyway. I wonder if it will feel like those last kisses on the beach in the arena, the ones I haven’t dared let myself consider until this moment. … I’m disappointed that [my] face wasn’t the first he saw when he woke…
versus how it actually turns out.
…but he sees me now. His features register disbelief and something more intense that I can’t quite place. Desire? Desperation? Surely both, for he sweeps the doctors aside, leaps to his feet and moves toward me. I run to meet him, my arms extended to embrace him. His hands are reaching for me, to caress my face, I think.
My lips are just forming his name when his fingers lock around my throat. (all of the above, Mockingjay, pgs. 176 - 177)
and 2. the fact that this happens at midnight. At fucking midnight. Katniss keeps her promise to see him at midnight, and it’s subtle but Collins slips it in there…and it kills me every time.
It must be midnight, it must be tomorrow when Haymitch pushes open the door. ”They’re back. We’re wanted in the hospital.” My mouth opens with a flood of questions that he cuts off with “That’s all I know.” — Mockingjay, pg. 175
and 3. she keeps that promise more than once. “I’ll see you at midnight,” is everywhere.
At midnight, I’m standing outside the door to his cell, hospital room. — Mockingjay, pg. 229
and another one…
At midnight, I crawl out of my tent and position myself on a camp stool near the heater to take my watch with Jackson. — Mockingjay, pg. 269
And “The Hanging Tree” is there, and it reminds her of Peeta, perhaps because midnight is there as well…
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree. (various page numbers)
Oh, and as far as the east coast goes…the teaser was released at midnight…I’m wondering if that’s just a coincidence…
"Are you fighting, Katniss? Are you here to fight with us?"
"I am. I will."
