The Calm BeforeThe Gamemakers don't let many days go by in between deaths in the arena. If you start to feel comfortable, you're dead. They've got buttons that bring on firestorms. Levers that will split the ground in two. Tidal waves. Lightning. Mutts. Really, the possibilities are endless.The Calm Before5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
So camping out here in the Capitol with our team only losing one soldier in days, you can see how someone who's been to the arena twice would start to feel like something bad is coming.
It's unlikely that Katniss or Peetathe only others here with intimate knowledge of how these arenas workhave any idea. Probably she's too preoccupied with him, while he's too busy being crazy. It's funny because Jackson didn't want to put Katniss in the rotation because she knows that Katniss would never be able to kill that boy. But they all seem to have forgotten that I've already risked my life to save him. Okay, so maybe I wouldn't exactly risk my life for him now, but I doubt I could ever kill Peeta. One day Katni

When darkness falls, I slip under the fence, into the silent trees as I have often done; this time, though, it is vitally important that no one spots me.
It takes several minutes before I reach the spot, my footfalls soundless and smooth on the forest floor. I shudder, remembering all the horrible things that happened to me in the woods in the Arena. Even nowthough I know Im homeI cannot dismiss the terrible feeling that at any moment an attack could surprise me; I doubt Ill ever be so easy-going about travelling though the forest again.

SPOILER WARNING! DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED MOCKINGJAY! I REPEAT, DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED MOCKINGJAY!
I wrote this about 10 minutes after I finished the book Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
The following is my thoughts on the book.
The beginning was promising, the middle was epically amazing, the beginning of the end was sad but not unsurprising, and the end of the end was weirdly satisfying in a way that only Suzanne Collins can pull off.
Was I satisfied in general? Knowing that I read the Hunger Games and Catching Fire each within a months of their release and have waited nearly two years for a conclusion to the trilogy, that's an excellent question.
I suppose, yes, it was worth the wait. But only just.
But, to be honest, Mockingjay is, now that I ponder it, my least favorite of the three books. The Hunger Games is my most f

Cinna smoothed back his hair and exited the room. He walked down the hall, passing by the prep team consisting of Flavius, Octavia, and Venia.
"Thank you, Flavius," Cinna said and he opened the doors.
"Hello, Katniss. I'm Cinna, your stylist," he said quite calmly to the girl standing before him.
"Hello," the girl said, as though she had been expecting something else.

As I was walking down the road with Gale, a question crossed my mind. This question had been on my mind for quite sometime now. I just had no idea what to do about it.
Was I falling in love?
I don't even think I knew who it was with. Gale? Peeta? Stupid, stupid love. What does it have to be so complicated and hard?
With Gale, well I've known him forever. We've never had secrets between us, ever. But now Peeta coming in the picture and Gale's not going to like it, not at all; are even they friends? No. They come from different worlds. I told myself.

You told me, back when we were visiting Peru and I was feeling down, that I would eventually find my calling in life. I write to you now to tell you, quite happily, that I have.
I can't explain much about it at the moment, only that my sudden absence from the university is for a reason. As I write, I am currently en route to New York City, to visit their museums and get a taste of the culture. I told you before how I wanted to visit New York while I had the chance, and now I travel with purpose.
I will say now, that while what I am about to do may seem strange to you, even mad, I can promise you that I am of sound mind and am determined to see my ambition through. Never before have I felt so strongly about the rightness of my decision. I will explain more in time. All I can tell you now is that I am launching my own expedition, and that it will be unorthodox, to say the least. I write you because you are my oldest and dearest friend, and I feel I can trust you.

He raised an eyebrow. “Our markings are strange to you?”

Top Ten: Why Twilight sucks.1.Stephanie Meyer can't write. And I'm not saying that because of what Stephen King said. I don't care what Stephen King said. Let's recap, shall we? She uses the same words such as "icy", "cold", "marble" and "his beautiful face" over and over. She describes Edward in extremely unnecessary detail. Honestly, if she took out all those descriptions of Edward, the whole Twilight "saga" would fit into one book. She includes totally useless information that NO ONE (except for maybe the crazy fan girls) cares about. I don't give a damn if Bella rode to Forks with her mom's car windows rolled down! Really, I don't. Also, this so-called-saga has no real plot to it whatsoever. And no, romance does not count as a "plot." Romance is a genre. A genre which involves a plot. It has no real characterization either. Sure, Bella may turn into a vampire, but did she really learn any life lessons, or become a better person because of her experiences? Of course not!
