Effie Trinket + not being oblivious to the Capitol’s true nature
“I’m not sure. I just wanted to hold them accountable, if only for a moment,” says Peeta. “For killing that little girl.”
“This is dreadful.” Effie sounds like she’s about to cry. “That sort of thinking … it’s forbidden, Peeta. Absolutely. You’ll only bring down more trouble on yourself and Katniss.”
#effie is likely the most understated character of the entire series#she’s also perfection#so suck it#i just love the way she says things#it’s like she’s completely oblivious and when with one sentence you realise#she’s not a clueless as everyone thinks#those that say she doesn’t understand#clearly you’re not paying attention (via euphemiabernathy)
"You will be the very goddess of humility, I am sure. But can you pay the price?"
”The price is you. The price is all you have and all you ever hope to have. We took your eyes and gave them back. Next we will take your ears, and you will walk in silence. You will give us your legs and crawl. You will be no one’s daughter, no one’s wife, no one’s mother. Your name will be a lie, and the very face you wear will not be your own.”
I’ve never seen any animal move so fast. They slide down the vines as if the things were greased. Leap impossible distances from tree to tree. Fangs bared, hackles raised, claws shooting out like switchblades. I may be unfamiliar with monkeys, but animals in natulre don’t act like this. "Mutts!" I spit out as Finnick and I crash into the greenery.
