just remember that had voldemort picked neville to kill instead of harry and nevile was the boy who lived/the chosen one if neville had that lightening bolt scar severus snape would still be a death eater
it’s not like he thought being a death eater was wrong — it wasn’t until something directly affected him did he reconsider and idk about you but that is not my definition of “bravery” in the slightest
White people must be stopped.
this is that shit that pisses me off because black people get shit on for for having names like “Shaniqua” and “Lakieshia” and all that but white people get to name their kids shit like this nah fuck that son
I’m all for people’s names being respected no matter how different from the norm they might be. Rock on baby Lakynn! I mean, who is to judge what is a “good” name, a “white name” or a so-called “ghetto name” (a phrase fraught with so much wrong)? But this double standard needs to be called out. I guarantee you that a black child named Lakynn (how do you pronounce that?) would get the side eye but the same name bestowed upon a white child would seem unique and creative.
Funny. Every time black folks do something unique, creative, or magically make something out of nothing it’s called ghetto and summarily dismissed until mainstream culture (read: white) decides it’s cute (i.e. nail art, hair extensions, twerking, etc).

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.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT
Damn right. There was no way that Katniss could have quelled the rebellion like President Snow asked her to, because it didn’t start when she and Peeta threatened to commit suicide together and leave the Games with no Victor.
It started when Katniss put those flowers on Rue and honored her with District 12’s farewell salute. It started when Katniss treated Rue like a human being instead of another piece of the Games.
I’m a multi-shipper and I can usually reason, rationalize, or justify behind most ships, but man, when I NOTP, I NOTP hard. I’m so salty and bitter about ships I despise (don’t worry don’t worry I don’t tag my hate or anything).
oh god, this is me.
the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her
