I turn spontaneously to Chaff and offer my hand. I feel my fingers close around the stump that now competes his arm and hold fast. And then it happens. Up and down the row, the victors begin to join hands. Some right away, like the morphlings or Wiress and Beetee. Others unsure but caught up in the demands of those around them, like Brutus and Enobaria. By the time the anthem plays its final strains, all twenty-four of us stand in one unbroken line in what must be the first public show of unity among the districts since the Dark Days.

BANGKOK, Thailand — They materialize suddenly, by the dozens, raising a three-finger salute toward the sky. Then they vanish as quickly as they appear, melting into crowds to evade scores of armed troops and police.

They are Bangkok’s anti-coup flash mobs. Under Thailand’s new military junta, which seized power from an elected government in late May, protesting the armed takeover is a crime.

Those daring enough to defy the coup have been reduced to cat-and-mouse games — swift public demonstrations designed to evaporate before police or soldiers can haul off offenders.

The flash mobs’ three-finger salute is inspired by The Hunger Games, the popular science-fiction series depicting a futuristic totalitarian regime. In The Hunger Games series, dissent toward a cruel dictatorship is signaled by raising three fingers; in Bangkok, the salute draws an unflattering comparison to the real-life junta that just seized power.

Oooooh this is a very interesting question!

The story (trilogy) feels pretty complete by itself to us, so we don’t really know what a spin-off could be about if there was one! What do you guys think it could be about? Send us your thoughts!

whatever it takes to break you

I’m so sorry that you’re so misunderstood and that people label you as cold and a girl with an attitude like it’s a bad thing, when you have every right to lock your feelings away and to be cold after everything you experienced. I’m so sorry people blame you for being “weak” in Mockingjay because you finally break, but for me that was when you were at your strongest. You finally let yourself feel pain, emptiness, and heartache, while at the same time, still fighting for a nation and people that needed you to be their leader. You still fought a war when you lost everything. 

nailed it.
