Omfg today at school I was talking to my gay friend and some random kid walked by and called me a fag hag and I didn’t know what to do so I just went up to the kid and hugged him and I was like “it’s okay, once you come out you will discover your true self” and then he hugged me back and started crying and he said “it’s just so hard to feel accepted” and I just
the queer whisperer
make sure it's a big box
With lots of windows
And a door to walk through
And a nice high chimney
So we can burn burn burn everything that we don't like
And watch the ashes fly up to Heaven
Maybe all the way to India
I'd like that
Sometimes I draw; sometime I write crappy haikus.

what we need see less of in fantasy literature:
- oversexed versions of fantasy!africa
- fantasy!africa being ‘mostly unexplored’
- fantasy!black people being described as ‘ape-like’
- white cultures being the only cultures that are vividly described
- seeing less of non-white cultures
- seeing less of native/amerindian cultures
- ignoring the incas/egyptians
- whitewashing the roman empire
- whitewashing the major poc cultures once it gets a tv show
- sexualizing teenagers
- treating prostitutes like chattel without human emotions
i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills
Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide.
Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.
My wife and I have actually had very extensive conversations about Foxface. Specifically, my argument is that Foxface is in love with Katniss, or had another reason to want her to win, or survive.
Foxface excels in subtlety and observational awareness, she is always aware of where the other players in the game are, but when ever Katniss is in trouble, Foxface shows up to show her the way. She shows Katniss how to bypass the mines at the food cache. She shows Katniss that she can make it to the “feast” and back out safely.
But there’s a question. Why would Foxface steal a handful of berries from Peeta? She was hungry? But she could just harvest her own berries, without needing to potentially reveal herself. I find it hard to believe Foxface would steal 20 berries, when Peeta just showed her what the bush looks like. So the argument is, she wanted to kill herself, to save Katniss, and Peeta (since she knows two can survive). But why not just go eat her own berries? At any point during this whole thing?
My argument is that she ate Peeta’s berries for two reasons. One, she wanted to show Peeta that the berries were poisonous, because she didn’t want Katniss to lose him. And, Two. She wanted Katniss to know, or have the opportunity to deduce, that Foxface was in love with her. There’s any number of ways she could kill herself, but she did it publicly, revealing that she’s not only been following Katniss and Peeta, but to put the question in her mind: Why steal 20 berries from Peeta?
This is a fascinating theory.
