"don’t interpret this friendship between women as a romance we should value women’s friendships because there are so few."
man, sorry, i was so busy rolling in the abundant representation of queer women and their relationships that i forgot to consider the plight of the platonic cishets.
Can we all just take a moment to reflect on the fact that Idina Menzel has made her career by saying “Fuck all of you basic bitches” through song?
Ugh, I’ll love this post forever.

I MADE THIS WITH MY TEARS
Me: *dramatically takes off coat* The cold never bothered me anyways
Me: Just kidding its freaking freezing out here *puts coat back on*
Words. I think of words and i think of Peeta. How people embrace everything he says. He could move a crowd to action, I bet, if he chose to. Would find the things to say. Peeta’s the good one. The likable one. He can make people believe anything. There. He’s done it again. Dropped a bomb that wipes out the efforts of every tribute who came before him.
are we just not gonna talk about the fact that peeta’s words are likened to a bomb dropping and how he can literally make anyone believe anything
are we not going to talk about this
this is terrifying
This is why I keep telling people this boy is a snake in the garden. For the most part he means well but he has the ability to make people believe anything he says because of his sincerity and the genuine quality of his words. However, it’s problematic for all kinds of reasons as well. Namely the first time he does it in which he strips away Katniss’ ability to choose her own narrative. He trapped her in a love narrative that she did not ask for and how she was perceived in the games depended upon that narrative and that narrative alone. Yes, it made her desirable but she had to work within a construct that she was unfamiliar with because her survival depended on it. Yes, she could have acted outside of the construct Peeta built but that would have been stupid and would not have anyway benefited her in the short term or the long term. Just because she accepted, worked within, and later helped build Peeta’s narrative does not mean that it was okay for him to do what he did.
Fandom treats Peeta’s gesture as romantic which it is not. Peeta’s reasons for it can be considered romantic (though they don’t have to based in love but they can be based in deep concern and care) but the actual act of carrying through with that narrative without Katniss’ consent was not romantic. It was an issue and will forever remain an issue in the narrative structure of the PK ship.
This is a perfect breakdown of Peeta’s power with words and his charisma without completely shitting on the character as a whole. Fandom take notes.
His charisma did directly and indirectly contribute to the Rebellion, but I fully believe he was aware of the power he had over people, and used that to his advantage.
