Oh, just arranging their weekly threesome. No big deal.
When my sister was little, she had an imaginary friend called Jackie. One Sunday, my great aunt was over and my sister came in, announced to the room that Jackie fell down the stair and died, and left. My great auntie calmly looked up and said “how did she know about that?” Apparently, my great auntie had a little brother called Jack (her mother, who died a little before my sister was born, called him Jackie) and when he was 7, he fell down the stairs, banged his head and died.
Can we just stop and talk about this for a minute?
Thresh doesn’t make an alliance. Thresh doesn’t waste time liking her. Thresh knows that either he must kill her or she must kill him for one of them to win.
But this is the only way he can repay her for protecting Rue when he couldn’t. It’s the only way he can repay her for honoring Rue when he couldn’t. He honors her by sparing her friend, the girl who would have died for her.
The revolution really doesn’t start with Katniss.
It starts with Rue.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT
Damn right. There was no way that Katniss could have quelled the rebellion like President Snow asked her to, because it didn’t start when she and Peeta threatened to commit suicide together and leave the Games with no Victor.
It started when Katniss put those flowers on Rue and honored her with District 12’s farewell salute. It started when Katniss treated Rue like a human being instead of another piece of the Games.
