“I was lucky enough to find a job without having to go to college, but I understand that’s usually not the case. It’s interesting to think that if I wasn’t doing what I’m doing, I’d be graduating college about now. In a short amount of time, I’ve lived so much, had so many experiences and met so many different types of people and even lived in so many countries. If I had been in school, I’d be learning about the world from books.”
Katniss Everdeen was special. Born with powers that fed off her emotions, Katniss’s birth prophesized an uprising and a revolution with her at the helm.

Rating: M for violence and suggestive sexual situations.

"That I knew I misjudged you. That you do love him. I’m not saying in what way. Maybe you don’t know yourself. But anyone paying attention could see how much you care about him," he says gently. —- Mockingjay, pg. 155-156
“It was time when they both loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other moral trials, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore.”
Love in the Time of Cholera, Gabriel Garcia Marquez
If this doesn’t give you post MJ Everlark feels, I swear, you are not human.
