“What if Foxface realized where she was at that point – she was up against Cato, Thresh, and the team from 12. She wasn’t good with hand-to-hand combat, she relied on stealth and getting in and out of situations quickly. What if she realized that the chances were if up against any of her competitors, she’d die a terrible, painful death. Then, she sees the nightlock sitting perfectly in front of her as she followed Peeta, and thinks: “This is my painless way out. Why suffer more than I need to?” Maybe Foxface was more clever than we all believed.”
in which we are very weird.
Jess: It is, right??
It’s like Santa got chosen for the Hunger Games and Buddy the Elf was like “NO, not Santa!!! Who will deliver the toys?!”
this is my new canon
No. No wait.
Santa is another kid who’s been putting his name in for EVERY CHILD IN THE DISTRICT since he was 12 himself.
So his name is in like 400 times and it was fucking inevitable.
I have decided that Santa wanted every kid to get tessera(e?).
But Buddy knows if Santa dies those gifts won’t come anymore because no one else is brave enough to put their name in for everyone.
So he volunteers.
I am insane.
me: you are. but i love you anyway.
so is zooey’s character the other tribute?
Jess: CROSSOVER TIME!
Yes she is.
We’ve just made the best crackfic in ever and no one will see it.
me: I KNOW RIGHT
i feel the need to repost this on tumblr
When Zoë and I are together, we’re like Beavis and Butthead. We just went to her dad’s hotel room and got Gummi Bears and HBO. We racked up so many charges. Mr. Kravitz was like, ‘Did you guys order a lot of room service?!’

HAH I totally forgot that now she’s been in movies with both famous Kravitz..es. I hope she got over that: filming THG had to be weird if every time she had a scene with Cinna she was like “So Mr. Kravitz…”
Girl on Fire (The Hunger Games cocktail)
1.5 ounces white rum
3 ounces mango juice
1 to 2 teaspoon grenadine
Orange zest strip
Directions: From the creator, Khalil Hymore: “Fill a highball glass with ice. Add white rum and mango juice, then add grenadine, allowing it to sink to the bottom of glass. Do not stir; garnish with orange zest and cherry. Of course, with this drink in hand, there’s only one way to toast: May the odds be ever in your favor!”

I wonder if there’s a way to make an alcohol free version of this. Obviously the rum provides the “burn” but at least you could get the pretty color and mango/cherry flavor. Hmm…

HOLY MOTHER OF CROSSOVERS
I would watch the fuck out of this.
On tumblr, it’s too much work to like lots of fandoms.
So increasingly we all just like one.
This is edited awesomely but man, I don’t think I could watch (or even read) a real AU like this since the upshot is everyone dies. I mean, even in the second book where not everyone-everyone dies? Everyone still dies.
It’s interesting to pit them against each other though…
And my father keeps trying to tell me racism isn’t a problem.
HOLY SHIT HOW STUPID AND HATEFUL ARE PEOPLE. I. WHAT.
Even if it wasn’t obvious that Rue and Thresh are black (and it’s like - pretty clear - the only thing that could make it less clear is Katniss talking about how Rue reminds her of Prim, and that’s because Katniss doesn’t give a shit about race) - who cares? That little girl who played Rue was amazing and adorable and to be honest I just hated that they cut the monologue about Rue’s backstory.
Cinna, for example, COULD be any race, but Lenny Kravitz played him wonderfully - a lot more wonderfully than I expected given his persona versus Cinna’s character.
The only one I’m not sure about is @lovelyplease. Being unimpressed with ‘making’ Thresh black could be racist, or could be her misguidedly thinking that they made some characters minorities to diversify the cast and ended up making the big aggressive guy who dies black. And I mean, in another situation it would bother me that the black characters die, but …they ALL die, regardless of race or class or training, except for Katniss and Peeta.

He is wearing a blue three-piece suit with a pinstripe vest and light blue tie, a mockingjay pin, like that Katniss wears, on the lapel of his jacket. He is looking to the side, with one eyebrow quirked.]
Lookin’ real good.
Wow, this guy is really, really dashing.

Making up for lack of screen time with SNAZZ.
Since someone who reblogged a clip noticed this—I thought it was interesting:
ComingSoon: One of the first things that struck me about the look of “The Hunger Games” is how you break the 180 degree rule in a very stylistic manner. That’s not an easy thing to pull off and it achieves a very distinct look in the final film. Can you talk about why you chose to take that approach?
Gary Ross: Thank you! You know, both my editors, Juliette Welfling and Stephen Mirrione, are tremendously comfortable with that. We also cut from people to the same people. There are like 300 jump cuts in the movie, too. You’re not supposed to cut from a person to themselves. We break a lot of rules, but it’s all very, very conscious and all within a style that we talked about in advance. It keeps the pace of the movie going and keeps the movie a little bit destabilized, as Katniss is. I love jumping the axis. I think that’s an absolute blast. But you have to do it in a way where you still maintain geography. It’s very astute of you to notice. We do that a lot, but it’s all very well thought-out.
There’s also some interesting stuff about the sound designer, who also did Drive.
I inserted a link since I wasn’t clear on what that was (until I looked at it and went “OH OF COURSE”). Is it weird that this makes me more excited to go see it? Visual disorientation is PERFECT for THG.
