    “Actually, I painted a picture of Rue,” Peeta says. “How she looked after Katniss had covered her in flowers.”

    There’s a long pause at the table while everyone absorbs this. “And what exactly were you trying to accomplish?” Haymitch asks in a very measured voice.

    “I’m not sure. I just wanted to hold them accountable, if only for a moment,” says Peeta. “For killing that little girl.”

Ok, moment of talking about this…

First off, you realize (at least in the books) Peeta never saw how Rue looked covered in flowers?! The Capitol never showed that footage, it was too inflamatory. So even when the Victor (or in their case the Victors) re-saw their games in the closing ceremonies, he didn’t see Katniss cover Rue in flowers (they showed her singing though), so he literally painted that by his memory of what Rue looked like and how Katniss described it, alone. And the Gamemakers knew what it was. They knew what he was doing and it scared them. While Katniss was always the shocking Girl on Fire, Peeta was the soft-spoken boy in love with her. That was what the Capitol’s image was of him… but right then, he shows to be just as angry, just as passionate and just as rebellious as Katniss. While Katniss has shocked everyone with her dresses, her actions against the Capitol in both games, and later the war, and has the government scared of her and trying to kill her because of it, Peeta’s thing runs even deeper in that moment. Peeta’s painting reminds them that Rue wasn’t just some little prop, some random tribute that Katniss covered in flowers and sang to at one point… she was a little girl. A little girl that they helped kill. And he didn’t even need to put it into words. 

Seriously, Peeta is pretty badass and brave and anyone who says shit about him will feel my wrath.

[Witty title]: Liveblog Discussion

fabrimuch:

Foal is aware of the Liveblog thread closing down, and he has suggested making an IRC channel for the discussion of liveblogs. My knowledge of IRC is limited to the fact that it exists so… yeah.

We could also make a Pesterchum memo where we can discuss liveblogs (my pesterchum is…

I have no idea what IRC is. My vote is a with a forum, either our own or a subpart of someone else’s. This, by the way, is B.S.

he lowers his wand because he knows that scene. A woman jumps in front of Harry willing to protect him with her own life. He didn’t see this with his own eyes but the resemblance literally disarms him for a moment before he can keep on playing his role.

Go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done.

A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting - part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this! PETER JACKSON.

This literally made my day today. HAPPY TEARS!
