Yesterday I showed my brother the hunger games.
It was the first time he ever saw it and he didn’t know much about the story line so I was sort of explaining the book to him while he was watching it.
Then he asked if a brother and sister could both get picked. #mindblown
I literally never asked myself that question.
I dont remember that ever being mentioned in the book.idk maybe it was I dont remember.
Just thought that was interesting.
Okay so I’m kind of re-entering my hunger games phase. I think its because I’m going through some hard times right now and its a nice distraction from reality. Last night I was pretty damn bored and felt like doing some creative writing. I have come up with a concept for a story I want to write but when it came time to actually writing it I became frustrated with where and how I wanted to start. SO as a result I felt like looking through some other creative writing I’ve done that I haven’t finished… and came across my old hunger games fan fiction. I started reading it all over again and after a year of not reading it I surprisingly liked what I read.
My fan fiction was based on what would have happened after the third book Mockingjay. I wasn’t happy with the way S.G. ended the series… It seemed so sudden and rushed. I got a sense like she didn’t feel like writing two other books so she wrapped it in a bow and said Peeta and Katniss fall and love and have babies… the end. well I thought that was lame.
I always wanted to know HOW Peeta and Katniss finally fell in love… and didn’t find it believable that Katniss would SUDDENLY decide thats it for Gale. She had professed or love for him! COMON LOLL anyways needless to say I wanted to literally make whole other book.
Anyways needless to say I like getting lost in my own little world. It mentally keeps me from going insane with stress so I decided I want to finish my fan fiction ha.
and to become (re)acquainted with the series I decided to watch the boot leg Hunger Games Dvd Lauren got me from NYC.
I’m glad I watched it because it gave me ideas for what I want to write and (re)interested in Hunger Games….
It literally gave me nightmares! I kept dreaming that I was IN the hunger games…. walking around with what I guess was an alliance I made. But this alliance I was in was with people I went to school with… Like literally some people were people I went to elementary school with, some from middle school… PEOPLE I HAVENT THOUGHT OF IN AGES.
It was too weird. Anyways we were walking around and then suddenly this huge fire started from behind us and fire balls started getting shot at us. One hit me in the back and in the leg. I remember feeling like I was in really bad pain.
Initially I was bothered by my dream but now in retrospect I think that was pretty funny. In fact I remember when I was watching the movie last night that I was telling my mom that I wished I was Katniss playing in the hunger games.
Be careful what you wish for I guess :P
- Peeta: I should have gone to you out in the rain
- Katniss: Shh..
I’m currently watching the 1992 adaptation of Wuthering Heights. I must have seen this movie about a billion times but even then, it never gets old. The proof that this story never gets old for me is that every time I revisit this story I still find myself getting emotionally involved. I get worked up every time I see Catherine deny Heathcliff despite the fact that he loves her with such a passion that it literally drives him mad. These feelings began to make me think about two other stories in particular that make me feel the same way: Twilight and the Hunger Games. Before I begin I want to say that I am a huge fan of Emily Bronte, and her story Wuthering Heights. I am also A HUGE fan of the Hunger Games and even of the Twilight series. However, I will be criticizing all the books mentioned. The theme I’ll be concentrating on is; main characters that do not appreciate the ones who deeply love them. The stories I have an easier time reading are the ones where the main character- who doesn’t realize a good thing when its right in front of them eventually comes to their senses, and falls in love with the under appreciated character. In the movie “A Walk to Remember” Shane West’s character is rude and under appreciative to Mandy Moore’s character but by the end they fall in love and get married… and that’s an example of a main character coming to their senses. Being that as it may, the thing that Wuthering Heights, Hunger Games, and Twilight all have in common is that the “falling in love” with the under appreciated character …never happens. I am so passionate about these stories that yes, I do literally get upset haha. Kind of crazy I know but this has been a theme that has bugged me for years. I need to get it all out of my system, and vent. Hopefully I can just come to peace with this haha. The Links to the specific book reviews are here: Hunger Games Twilight Series Wuthering Heights
