“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.
what are those whale sobbing noises on the background?
oh, just me forever crying over every single AU in which Bianca is still alive and Nico is happy. It’s ironic how happy!Nico things are also actually the saddest Nico things:[
my first submission for pjo fanzine, which is getting me totally late because I am irrespoisible like this.
I forgot to mention I developed a headcanon in which Nico gets some freakles on his nose, too, when he spends a lot time hanging outdoors during sunny days(◡ ‿ ◡ ✿)
Frank wasn’t sure what Nico was thinking. He had a hard time imagining Nico di Angelo acting out of love for anybody, except maybe Hazel.
I swear this line just breaks my heart so much everytime..of course I had to draw some siblings love. *or..almost siblings?*
Damn I will probably end up drawing all of my bookmarks.
'Are you two done, ah, geeking out, as they say?’
No seriously this scene was so precious.
obviously failed to draw it the proper way but whatever I tried
dead animals love Nico.
let’s take a guess: on a scale from 1 to 10 how done am with being done with this boy? I’d probably give it a 12. why do even cute nico things turn out into actually-sad-nico-things? like how lonely should the kid be to talk to skeletons maaan ;___; I figured animals who are yet alive hate him because of the whole death thing.. But once dead, they find him very appealing.
the cat is probably purring with it’s bones. making sounds not exactly like purr but like trrr
