Katniss looking at Peeta.
My ongoing struggle against the Capitol, which has so often felt like a solitary journey, has not been undertaken alone. I have had thousands upon thousands of people from the districts at my side. I was their Mockingjay long before I accepted the role.
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - NOVEMBER 21, 2014 & NOVEMBER 20, 2015
Why does everything about this character make me want to burst into tears?
I remember when I read the first book, I was thinking Poor Peeta! about every four pages. That was just the first book. Things got so much worse for him. Peeta is so kind and works so hard to be good, and life just kicks him the face over and over. He overcomes, though.
I wonder if it was Peeta’s choice or his family’s to not live with him in Victor’s Village. I used to hope that it was Peeta’s decision because I thought it was better for him to stand up for himself and make a safe and peaceful home for himself. I didn’t want it to be an example of his family rejecting him.
As I’ve thought about it more though, I’ve realized that while it’s painful either way, ultimately it would probably be even harder on Peeta if he didn’t allow his family to move into Victor’s Village. When the Capitol bombed 12, the merchant area was the hardest hit, with the fewest survivors, while Victor’s Village was untouched. So if Peeta’s family had wanted to move in with him and he didn’t allow it, Peeta would surely have to deal with guilt over that decision for a long time afterwards.
Basically, Peeta couldn’t win either way.

So I was listening to this song, and it reminded me of some of my favourites quotes from the books.
It´s my first video ever! I hope you like it!
It’s good to see Jennifer is taking her own advice…
What does MTV offer in response to the uproar over Katniss being left out of the Best Hero category? A list of Katniss’s clothes in the movie, of course.
