I don’t know if this is my brain’sway of distracting me from RL stuff I could be having a breakdown over but I keep coming up the weirdest fragments of fics (all involving Peeta)
“I was wondering what you were doing out here.”
“Oh, you know. Regretting not staying in there with you, mostly.”
She feels her cheeks getting warm. “Too bad you couldn’t do both.”
“Well, I was kind of thinking about breakfast in bed. But someone doesn’t sleep long enough for that to happen.”
SSS- If The City Never Sleeps (Then That Makes Two) chapter 22.
“Happy anniversary, by the way.”
Anniversary. Her hands still. “I’ve been here a month?” she asks.
“To the day,” Peeta says brightly. “Weird, right? It’s like I can’t decide whether it feels like you’ve been here longer or like you only just got here.”
Hey! You’re back!! I <3 you, too!!
I wouldn’t want to be a victor, but assuming I was … well, I think that poetry or writing wouldn’t be allowed (I don’t imagine a lot of literature is openly available in panem) so … painting, probably. I’m not very good at it (I only started at Christmas) but it’s the only thing I can think of that would be allowed.
I think a big part of why I read way more fanfiction than books is that there’s just a hell of a lot less exposition
the first 10 pages of most books are always “these are the main characters and here’s some background on each of them and this is the setting etc etc” and it’s such a fucking hassle getting to the plot sometimes
fanfic is just like “fuck it you know all of this already let’s go”
