    katniss calling her mother weak is a direct result of what occured during her childhood, but it also due to katniss’ pride. she can’t imagine herself falling apart for someone, and prides herself in her “strength”. when in reality, she basically falls into the danger of becoming just like her mother when it comes to almost loosing peeta. katniss literally says that she would be destroyed if peeta died. this is the same pattern of behavior shown with her mother after losing her husband, which implies they had a love as deep and complex as katniss and peeta’s. katniss has a problem with pride, and we tend to hate what we see in other people often times because it is in or reflected in ourselves.

    The World Is Getting Stranger

    A year after her victory, Annie is struggling to heal from her trauma in a world determined for her to relive it, while contending with an unexpected house guest and evidence of a growing conspiracy amongst District Four’s working class.

    Meanwhile, Finnick is swept away to the Capitol for the 71st Hunger Games: complete with a usurper, an enemy from the past, and a deadly conspiracy of his own.

    And neither of them are falling in love.

    Definitely not.

    Chapter 11: Re-entry

    Warnings: Sex Trafficking, Sexual Abuse, Ableism, Death/Violence, Slow-Burn

    Rating: M

    Chapter Preview:

    Now Julian actually does hesitate. A flash of real trepidation crosses his face. “I’ve probably said too much.”

    He’s closing off, right when the conversation was getting interesting. Finnick kisses his temple, trying to coax Julian back to him. “It’s alright, you can tell me. You can trust me, love.”

    “Can I?” Julian’s voice sharpens with annoyance. “You’re not even here because you want to be. How do I know you won’t just spill my secrets to the next person you’re with in exchange for a fancy bauble?”

    There’s a note of something that catches Finnick’s attention. Hurt. And loneliness.

    For a moment, he can almost imagine what it would be like to be someone like Julian. All the money in the world, but completely devoid of any real love or connection. Why else would he be so desperate to seek it out like this? He’s not much different than Flavia, or Drusilla. All of them searching in the wrong place for someone to care.

    And Finnick knows exactly what he needs to do.

    Unpopular opinion

    Why is katniss seen as the only desirable female in the hunger games ? The only woman worthy of being romantically infatuated with ?

    It actually kind of infuriates me that Suzanne Collins did this. Why couldn't we have another strong female being seen as desirable ... I'm looking at Madge and gale here. The line Finnick says everyone will either wanna kiss , kill or be katniss really makes me feel icky ... It's so inappropriate for a man in his mid 20s to say to a teenage girl but only solidifies katniss as the only real female object of sexuality or desirability

    Now I know a lot of people will say that but what about Annie ? What about katniss mother who were romantically linked to Finnick and katniss father. But think about this ...both women are shown as emotionally a bit unstable. Annie is the girl who went mad. Katniss mother is the woman unhinged after her husband death. Katniss mother doesn't even have her own identity.

    What about Johanna and the elevator scene ? Well peeta doesn't actually show interest to Johanna just uses it as a way to tease katniss.

    I dunno I feel like Suzanne Collins overall kind of weakens other female characters and their identity and ability to be desirable to the other male characters as a way to elevate katniss . It irks me !

    It also is such a weird trope in books of " all the men want the same girl but she is oblivious to it and she is the only one worthy of attention". A reverse harem if you will.

    It’s very likely that nothing will actually come of it, but I may have started to actually write this thing.

    This was fine.
    Everything was absolutely, perfectly fine and normal. Peeta had arrived in his dorm room to discover that he was sharing a two-bedroom suite with the girl he’d had a crush on in grade school and her unspeakably attractive boyfriend, and that was just excellent. It was, frankly, typical.

    i just don’t really buy into everlark being in love. i believe that the hunger games is (and i will defend this forever) a love story and a war story. that is so, so important. but for myself, for my personal thoughts, feelings, i just don’t see it. 

    or rather, i understand their circumstances, their interactions, etc. i know the importance of the nights on the train, the cave, the beach. little conversations they have about favorite colors. the fear and panic of the other being in danger. i understand and accept all of that. 

    but i seriously don’t consider my saying i don’t see them being in love as a misinterpretation of the text simply because it’s a concept set forth by the series that i simply don’t see and don’t agree with. 

    however, that being said. i strongly believe they love each other. i really, really do. the elements of care, respect, trying to understand the other, that’s love to me. going out on one’s way for the safety and wellbeing of another person. all of those little instances, again, for myself, was them learning to love the other person, not falling in love with the other. 

    and even so, i do think there are maybe little elements of romantic love between them, katniss’ feelings of that hunger especially, but the falling in love period for me happens post..well, everything. their growing back together period is their falling in love period, for myself. 

    this isn’t to start discourse or anything, this is simply me just...saying stuff. i’ve read the books. i’ve read some pretty dope as heck meta. also very nice fanfiction (y’all are amazing writers btw keep doing it!), but this is still how i feel. i’m not shitting on everlark. i’m not saying anyone is stupid for seeing these two in love. nothing at all like that. this is not me trying to be #edgy. some folks have their own interpretations, and i have mine! and that’s good! 

    this is just how i see things and how i feel. i don’t even consider this a dissenting opinion. it’s just different, ya know? 

    *walks backwards into the forest* 

    #ophelia speaks#everlark#everlark meta#thg#thg meta#thgagain #again again this is not discourse #i've seen and i've read all their scenes #i haven't skimmed stuff #this is just how i feel #even though i will not be turning anon on lmao #we will fight if i get a don't put this in the tag #not really fight #but i will be displeased #and again for the people in the back #this is not discourse #this is not me vaguebloggind #this is not me shitting on folks who love the love story in a falling in love way #just my thoughts that i do think deserve to be heard #plus it's my little cabin in the woods so

    “I am loathe to admit I doubt myself, but I do. I want to make you proud, both of you.”
    “Marta Anne, you already make me proud. Proud as I could ever be of a son.”
    “Mother Mockingbird knows what she is about, daughter. She blessed our nest with you, and the strength of Lady Night is in your soul, and will be in the souls of your sons.”

    Characters of the Flock: Martin and Elise Becker, Peeta Mellark’s maternal grandparents

    Martin: derived from Mars, the Roman god of war; more importantly for the Flock, the name calls to mind a kind of bird; his only child, Marta, is named for her father
    Elise: a French nickname for Elizabeth, meaning “promise” or “oath” (of God)

    Chapter 2 is available now

    Here we get a little glimpse into Peeta’s backstory and the beginning of the chain of events that lands both Katniss and Peeta in the Arena (as shown in chapter 1) about to fight to the death.

    In the next chapter there will be magic, illusions and a helping of angsty brooding with a dash of hidden mutual pining. As well as a fair amount of snark, care of Johanna and Haymitch. 😉☺️. I might throw in some Odesta goodness too.

    honestly i don’t think it’s...that much of a stretch to see peeta wanting children more than katniss at the epilogue? of course he didn’t force her and it was definately a mutual choice on both their parts, but literally the only way i can honestly read and interpret “but peeta wanted them so badly” is honestly from a place of like...changed reluctance?

    and considering what katniss has been through, as well as her own complicated relationship with motherhood, it’s not a bad thing to say that she is reluctant to have children. lots of women are or might be and then feel different later. there’s nothing wrong with that? 

    reluctant can mean unwilling, which i don’t think she was. but it also means hesitant. i strongly feel that having children, heck, carrying a child inside of her is not something...like, the complex feelings of that for katniss isn’t...it’s not peeta’s to measure or even comment on, except from a place of support.

    and i hate the line because it doesn’t add anything. them just having kids and that being what we are presented with shows us: 

    they have made a life for themselves 

    they, while it is difficult, are continually working through their trauma by living their lives 

    they have grown into adults together

    with the “but peeta wanted them so badly” it’s an immediate seperation, especially with the “but” because the automatic response, at least for a moment, is that she just did it to please him. which obviously is not the case. 

    tldr; i really hate that line, i don’t see the point in trying to justify it because i don’t think it is justifiable. at all.  there are other ways of saying that their choice to have children was a difficult thing, that katniss was hesistant, but eventually they made a choice and are living their lives and it’s okay. 

    #ophelia muses#thg#thg meta#thgagain#everlark#everlark meta #i think it's a major stretch and you have to go through a lot of hoops to justify that line #AND it's not text accurate to say that he forced her #he didn't #but the line gives the implication that he nagged her into doing something she was hesistant to do #instead of being a support with her hesistance
