It’s time for a little more drama—and a lot more Everlark.
I hope you all enjoy it!
On a sidenote, I just wanted to link to the song that somewhat inspired the title for TWC, it is Notwist’s “Consequence”. Link is on the title—check it out if you want.
As always, hello, comments, and reviews are always welcomed on FF, AO3, and Tumblr.
On a personal note, this is either going to be really great day for me, or really sucky one, so please send the good vibes!

Though they fought and lived with honor and dignity until the end, both Thresh and Rue, were so young. But our lives aren’t just measured in years. They’re measured in the lives of people we touch around us. For myself, for Katniss, we know that without Rue and without Thresh we wouldn’t be standing here today. So in recognition of that, knowing that it in no way can make up for your loss. We’d like to donate one month of our winnings to the families of the tributes, every year, for the rest of our lives.

And in a later chapter of The Blind Date by MalibuStacy.
"the Capitol has not killed or even punished him. For right now, that exceeds my wildest hopes. I drink in his wholeness, the soundness of his body and mind. It runs through me like the morphling they give me in the hospital, dulling the pain of the last weeks.."
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.
First of all, thank you! I love your blog! Second, I know it’a a strage request, but do you know any fics set like “Lost”? Not crossovers, please! Thanks!
Thank you! And there is one based on Lost: Surviving - Little_Night_Roses. It hasn’t been updated since September, though.
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…
