Life in District 12 isn’t really so different from life in the arena. At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead. The hard thing is finding the courage to do it.
#’well it’s not hard for gale’ she continues #’he was born a rebel’#may the odds be ever in your favor #bye #this boy is so important to her understanding of injustice #’gale’s voice is in my head’ #’his rants against the capitol no longer pointless no longer to be ignored’ #’gale is right. if i have set things in motion i could do so much.’ #’i can die like quarry in the woods or i can die here beside gale’ #’i think of gale hanging senseless from the whipping post’ #’and for what? for what?’ #rebel girl you are the queen of my world #this is how katniss learns to become the mockingjay #it’s not just the scene in MJ where she and gale are in a storage closet #and she is talking about how they can’t go back #and gale asks her ‘what are you going to do about it?’ three times #and she says ‘i’m going to become the mockingjay’ #it is not just that scene #gale has always been asking her ‘what are you going to do about it?’ #he has always been asking her that question #even before she heard it #gale’s voice is in her head
