MUST BECOME MEGUKA
BAILEE THIS IS NOT HOW YOU BECOME MEGUKA
THE TRANSFORMATION HAS STARTED
“Actually, I painted a picture of Rue,” Peeta says. “How she looked after Katniss had covered her in flowers.”
There’s a long pause at the table while everyone absorbs this. “And what exactly were you trying to accomplish?” Haymitch asks in a very measured voice.
“I’m not sure. I just wanted to hold them accountable, if only for a moment,” says Peeta. “For killing that little girl.”
Ok, moment of talking about this…
First off, you realize (at least in the books) Peeta never saw how Rue looked covered in flowers?! The Capitol never showed that footage, it was too inflamatory. So even when the Victor (or in their case the Victors) re-saw their games in the closing ceremonies, he didn’t see Katniss cover Rue in flowers (they showed her singing though), so he literally painted that by his memory of what Rue looked like and how Katniss described it, alone. And the Gamemakers knew what it was. They knew what he was doing and it scared them. While Katniss was always the shocking Girl on Fire, Peeta was the soft-spoken boy in love with her. That was what the Capitol’s image was of him… but right then, he shows to be just as angry, just as passionate and just as rebellious as Katniss. While Katniss has shocked everyone with her dresses, her actions against the Capitol in both games, and later the war, and has the government scared of her and trying to kill her because of it, Peeta’s thing runs even deeper in that moment. Peeta’s painting reminds them that Rue wasn’t just some little prop, some random tribute that Katniss covered in flowers and sang to at one point… she was a little girl. A little girl that they helped kill. And he didn’t even need to put it into words.
Seriously, Peeta is pretty badass and brave and anyone who says shit about him will feel my wrath.
Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve
Well if you like it then you really should have put a ring on it.
(I am really sorry)
Why don’t you head back to the Normandy, kid? If you stay here in the real world you might have to learn something.
Mass Effect (2007): Favorite Video Games
Splendid artwork! Here’s the original author’s page on DA: http://finni.deviantart.com/
Feeling in a doodling mood after doing some really dull samples over the last few days. This is sort of another sketch trade with the awesome Oscar, I’ve already done one but to be honest the rest of the ideas she gave me were too good to pass up!
The prompt was to draw my Warden as a Mass Effect alien. At first I was gonna go for Salarian but after having a bit of a think I figured being a Quarian would suit Rin best!
I’m still in a doodling mood so gimme requests if you have any guys! I’m kinda bored
I love the design of the Quarians, like for real.
