“We’ve reached a stalemate. I can’t shoot Cato without killing Peeta, too. He can’t kill Peeta without guaranteeing an arrow in his brain. We stand like statues, both of us seeking an out. [...] As in a last-ditch effort, Peeta raises his fingers, dripping with blood from his leg, up to Cato’s arm. Instead of trying to wrestle his way free, his forefinger veers off and makes a deliberate X on the back of Cato’s hand. Cato realizes what it means exactly one second after I do...”

The Hunger Games, Chapter25 ~ Suzanne Collins

Ok I never use this phrase, but this is so badass!! I loves this part of the book, it may or may not have something to do with Peeta being my only fav character remaining (poor little Rue, I knew the second I got attached to her I’d given her a death sentence with my whole fav character dying in anything and everything thing :roll:)

I wasn’t happy about the background, I wanted a dramatic cloudy storm thing going on but I’m pretty sure its daytime at this point and hot... so I settled for a storm rolling in :P

This won the 2011 Pearl Award for 'Best Action' on the Forums, so THANKS GUYS!!!!

Thankyou so much in advance for your comments, I read every single one of them and appreciate them all even if I dont get a chance to reply to them!

Just one question

Why is it called x?

It should be called A+
Sorry I'm corny

Don't know why I haven't favorite this already; I've loved it for years! This is exactly how I imagine Cato looking; he looks too pretty-boy for me in the movie! I love all the details, such as Peeta's twisted leg and how much of Katniss' jacket is missing! It's fantastic!

I didnt read the book so this makes me notice that he did do it in the movie, lol

Hmmm we must have seen a differet movie then :S In the movie I thought he only tapped at the hand, not dug his finger into his leg and put a cross there

I just meant that he'd noticed her about Cato's hand and I'd missed that moment until I saw this. Ok?
May my bad English makes you get me wrong.

You make the best scenes from the Hunger Games! Nobody else (that I've seen) has done these! And they're so well done! I also believe you have captured Peeta and Katniss perfectly! :D
