"And then…for some reason, I think you picked a dandelion." I nod. He does remember. I have never spoken about that moment aloud. "I must have loved you a lot."

"You did." My voice catches and I pretend to cough.

"And did you love me?" he asks.

I keep my eyes on the tiled floor. “Everyone says I did.”

- Mockingjay, Chapter 16.

"Did you love Annie right away, Finnick?" I ask.

"No." A long time passes before he adds, "She crept up on me."

- (Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay)

Getting MJ feels from literature written 197 years earlier, because I’ve been completely and irrevocably corrupted by Suzanne Collins.

Quote IconIt feels like such a luxury, sleeping with Peeta again. I didn’t realize until now how starved I’ve been for human closeness. For the feel of him beside me in the darkness. I wish I hadn’t wasted the last couple of nights shutting him out. I sink down into sleep, enveloped in his warmth, and when I open my eyes again, daylight’s streaming through the windows

Katniss was starving for human closeness. Starving. That means that she hadn’t felt it like this since her and Peeta were close in the caves during the first games, when she felt safe in his arms, the first person to make her feel that safe since her father passed away. Peeta made her feel that. Peeta had her starving for human closeness when she’s naturally a secluded person because she doesn’t want to get hurt or trust. But she trusts Peeta. And she feels at peace in his arms, even when she knows they could be killed at any moment by Snow’s command.  (via frostingpeetaswounds)

Indeed!

And how wonderful is it that Katniss says, “For the feel of HIM beside me in the darkness,” instead of ‘someone,’ which would’ve been the logical progression of her statement about non-specific human closeness? Quite a telling moment, I think. :)

"He tucks me in and says good night but I catch his hand and hold him there…I want him to climb in with me, to be there when the nightmares hit tonight. For some reason that I can’t quite form, I know I’m not allowed to ask that.

"Don’t go yet. Not until I fall asleep," I say.

Peeta sits on the side of the bed, warming my hand in both of his.”
