Haymitch’s last words of advice to me. Why would I need reminding? I have always known who the enemy is. Who starves and tortures and kills us in the arena. Who will soon kill everyone I love.
"I just don’t want them to change me."
“How would they change you?”
“I don’t know. They’d turn me into something I’m not.
I just don’t want to be another piece in their game, you know? [..]
If I’m gonna die, I want to still be me”.
AU: Allison’s funeral.
“You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
