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.

I’m constantly surprised by the fact that other countries don’t have nicknames for absolutely everything: Arvo, Maccas, ute, brissy, chockas, barbie, avos, bikkies, bottle-o, bundy, cab sav, chockie, brekkie, compo, metho, sanga, snag, spag bol, ciggie, footy, garbo, goon, kindie, pash, polly, pokies, rego, servo, sickie, smoko, stubby, tinny, trackies, vee-dub, veggo, u-ey…
Free your lines and the rest will follow…or at least that’s the idea behind this notebook created by Marc Thomasset.
you don’t understand
this would fuck me up so badly because I wouldn’t be able to write outside of the lines and I would literally have to flip the notebook as I wrote because I am going to damn well make sure that my sentences follow those fucking lines
Imagine turning in a paper to your teacher using that.
Katniss continues to show us just how large the walls she’s built up are, by telling us that her younger sister is the only person she’s allowed herself to love. Our heroine has been burnt, losing her father to the mines, and then, however briefly, her mother to the depression she fell to from losing her husband. And given the society she lives is, compassion is likely not an easy thing to come by with its citizens. It’s no wonder that Peeta’s act of saving her and her family’s life in the face of his own punishment made such an impression on her.
She is also basically laying out for the reader the truth of what she feels for Gale: unlike Peeta, who she was basically drawn to despite her own intentions, she and Gale did not click right away. And the way she mentions that he was practically a man when they met also speaks volumes for their relationship. Gale is like an older brother to her, or maybe even a pseudo-father figure. She does not view him romantically.
And while Katniss may have a great propensity for denial, her wondering here suggest that she may not be as clueless as she likes to think she is. She’s starting to suspect that Gale’s feelings for her are romantic. But as a part of building up those walls, she does not want to think about something that makes her uncomfortable. So if anything, it’s a chosen denial she’s subjected herself to here. She knows how Gale really feels.
Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
