70s-superhero versions of book characters are fun? I don’t know, I really have no justification for this.
Since actually working on your finals is for losers, I have instead copied a Facebook meme and adapted it to work with tumblr crushes instead. Because that’s productive.
1: The person you volunteer for: Linn (I would say awww, but I think she’d be more likely to win than I am)
2: The person who falls over on national tv: Effie (probably from overdose of flail)
3: Your mentor: Ester (awwwwww yisssssssssss)
4: The one who loves you secretly: Krystina (it’s mutual, darling)
5: The stylist that gives you a name: Christine (I feel a caffeine-fueled fashion disaster coming on….)
6: The first person you kill: Kyla (but…. 8c )
7: Your last opponent: Ginnie (…..WE’LL FIGURE OUT SOMETHING. THEY CAN’T MAKE US KILL EACH OTHER, RIGHT?)
8. Head Gamemaker: zombielove74 (terrified to know what’s in store there)
9. Your interviewer when you win: i-aint-bovvered (should be interesting, at least)
“I got crazy looks at Target and the gas station, but at Walmart, they didn’t blink an eye.”
– Wes Bentley, on the public’s reaction to his Hunger Games beard in North Carolina while shooting the film
It’s probably because everyone at that Wal-Mart was used to the 300+ camp counselors that descended on them every weekend, dressed in god-knows-what because it was our only chance at civilization until the next Saturday.
After that, his beard is downright tame.
It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. -Samwise Gamgee
This concludes our Hunger Games week. Normally Jojo draws one character at a time, and normally only one tribute survives the Hunger Games. But today Jojo draws both Katniss and Peeta.
As for their appearance, I like the boots she put on Katniss, and she got the braided hair right. The shirt has too much red, but their tribute outfits did have red stripes, so I’ll allow it.
As for the action, near as I can tell, Peeta has camouflaged himself as an arrow and Katniss is about to shoot him at someone. I like that Peeta’s expression looks grimly determined to help Katniss win the Hunger Games, even if it means pretending to be an arrow.
Katniss’ expression looks like she’s thinking, “God, Peeta. You’re ruining everything.”
