Everlark fan arts with toast babies
Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when you awake, the sun will rise.

Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, A moonbeam ray,
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it's morning, they'll wash away.

Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

"The twentieth century, of course, was the first in which the methods and tools of science – and particularly the methods and tools of space exploration – enabled us to answer age-old questions without reference to mythological sources: Where did we come from? Where are we going? Where do we fit in the universe? Many of our answers have come not simply because we went to the Moon or to some other celestial object but because space offers us places from which to access the rest of the cosmos."

I have watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy just focusing on Legolas. And it is pure gold.

This was in my queue, but I feel it is appropriate to publish this now. May we take this into consideration in honor of his work and the inspiration he gave others.

I have reblogged this before, but I feel the need to reblog it right now for given reasons. Thank you for everything, sir. You are missed already.

One of the most useful posts ever.

This is an interesting question.

I think she’s always noticed him, even had feelings for him. When she’s reaped in the first Games, her emotions are so conflicting because she feels trust, affection and attraction to Peeta—but she’s supposed to kill him. So, there’s this tension of wanting to trust him and feeling steadied by him, but she’s really not supposed to. With the tainting of the Games, the manipulation of the audience and sponsors, she’s feeling conflicted as to what she feels towards him. I believe that all her feelings in the arena, in the cave and after the Games are true, real emotions of affection, infatuation and movement towards love. 

I believe that she does truly begin to love him in Catching Fire. She’s discovering exactly what that means in the Victory Tour, the Cheese Buns time, the Training Center time (with the roof), all the way up through the Games where she confesses it aloud to him that she needs him. For Katniss, I think that’s more powerful than saying, “I love you.” For her to need someone, she has to express and show vulnerability in love, in trust and in herself. I don’t see her saying that she needs anyone else in her life. Needing someone is also what she truly fears—loving someone so much that if they died, they would leave you broken and affected. She doesn’t want to need someone, but she needs Peeta.

The key moments of Katniss showing she loves Peeta:

  • Yelling out his name in HG.
  • The quote: It’s not about the sponsors….
  • Working hard to get him home to D12.
  • Her constantly noticing him.
  • When she chooses to sacrifice herself for him in the conversation with Haymitch.
  • Them in the Training Center together. The touching, the need to be with each other in every moment.
  • The forcefield death.
  • The beach kiss
  • The morning after the beach kiss…which, I think, is very telling.
  • After they’re separated.
  • Mockingjay—she basically pines over Peeta, mourns Peeta, needs Peeta. Read it again if you didn’t get that. Read it again.

Katniss’s life was built to fall in love with Peeta—from the bread to their toasting. Every turn her life took, he was there or a part of it. So, did she feel love in The Hunger Games? Yes. Did she truly understand it then? No. Let’s just say, that’s when she started falling for him….

But isn’t that love? We don’t know the exact moment we love someone. It’s a process and a story. 

Exactly. So accurate.

EVERLARK IS REAL.

If you listen closely, you can hear everlark haters’ minds being blown..
*nuclear explosion*

Um….one of my favorite responses ever to something I’ve written. :)

I don’t mind if Everlark haters’ minds are being blown.

I love this clip.  It’s just a split second but shows more than we think.  Watch Peeta.  Then watch Caesar.
There’s such posturing going on between the two of them.  If this were a western, they would be facing each other with their fingers twitching over the gun in their holsters at this point.
Caesar’s actions and stance come across with an air of almost gloating.  And Peeta’s actions and stance scream defiance.  Even in the precarious situation he knows he’s in, he’s doing what he can to rebel.
Which means that at this point, our Peeta is still there.  He hasn’t yet disappeared behind the haze of tracker jacker venom.
