I tried to decide how I felt about the kiss, if I had liked it or resented it, but all I really remembered was the pressure of Gale’s lips and the scent of the oranges that still lingered on his skin.
The many ways to tie a scarf. I think NYC looks the most difficult but also the cutest. Which one’s your favorite?
I want a man who comes back for me even when he has absolutely nothing to win from it.
And a man who thinks about my well-being even if he can’t be there for me.
Bonus points if that man can rock a hoodie
… a tank top
… a scarf
… and JFC a CAPE!
I want a man whose smile makes my heart skip a beat.
I want to love his voice and the way he looks at me when he speaks.
But, because I know my man is not a TEENAGE DREAM but a REAL, FLAWED HUMAN BEING who is likely to FAIL and HURT ME at some point (isn’t that what people do to each other all the time?), I want him to have the GUTS to apologize.
(Because opening your heart and actually admitting you screwed up because you were SCARED is actually a freaking brave thing to do, and I want my man to be BRAVE.)
Brave as in, willing to forgive.
…willing to return to a place he hates to fight for our family.
…willing to listen to what I have to say even if it breaks his heart.
And I want him to be generous…
…and, above all, respectful.
Neal Cassidy is not a perfect man. But hell yeah, I’d have him any time of the day.
And you know the best part?
He has so many qualities that I didn’t even need to belittle the *cough*”competition"*cough* to make him look good.
this is awesome
"Madge, listen to me. They’re planning something in the Games; Beetee, Johanna Mason, Finnick Odair, all of them. I can tell. Something big is going to happen. And when it does they might come here to take it out on us. If that happens, we need to be ready. Stay inside until I come get you. I’ll need to clear the Seam first, that’s where they’ll target. Don’t worry, your father’s never upset the Capitol, they won’t hit your house. You’ll be safe there for a little while, I promise."
I don’t think she knew that she mattered. I guess it’s too late to tell her I’m sorry. It’s too late to tell her a lot of things.
Things that won’t be in Catching Fire
