Another excerpt from Down the Rabbit Hole (Annie in the Quarter Quell instead of Mags):
One. Two. Annie feels each cannon boom echo through her body. Three. Four. She lifts her hands, desperately covers her ears. Five. Six. Seven. It does no good. She still hears them, still feels the sound rising up from the ground and raining down on her head long after it stops.
“Please. Not Finnick,” she begs – the Gamemakers, the President, the other victors, whoever will listen, even though she knows it’s already done. “Please.”
You're one of the kindest people I've ever met and I'm so glad I can call you my friend ♥
And you, my friend, are such a sweetheart. I’m glad we met. ♥
This was a really lovely note for you to receive….and I’m actually a little surprised as to how much it hit home to me as well while reading it.
I know, right? It’s things like this that prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the friendships we make online are every bit as real as those in “real” life.
Finnick&Haymitch You have 35 secs.
"Boy, you have thirty-five seconds to move your ass away from my space."
Finnick opened his eyes, but made no move to leave, instead settling deeper into the cushions of the old couch in the corner of the victors’ lounge. “Or you’ll what, old man?” he asked with a smirk.
The dark-haired, gray-eyed victor from 12 shrugged and turned his back on Finnick, then dropped down on top of the boy’s legs and shifting so that his bare feet were inches from Finnick’s face.
"What is that smell?” he shouted, trying frantically to escape as the man laughed.
"Name’s Haymitch Abernathy and that is the smell of defeat.”
(Since you got an extra word in there, I got an extra sentence. :D)
Anonymous asked:You are strong. Not because you want to be strong, but because your past made you that way. You come off as aloof on occasion, but this is because you are nervous of people you don't know. Will they hurt you? The answer has been yes, so you keep most out. For those you love, however, you'd do anything. Once a friend, you are a friend forever. ~Anonymous
Thank you, Anon. I’m… a little bit floored at how much thought you put into this.
