It’s amazing how one word can be so powerful.  In this case that word is ‘always’.  It holds much significance in both Harry Potter (Snape’s always is probably one of the most moving one word lines ever) and in The Hunger Games, when it is uttered by Peeta.  Spoilers below!

Do you remember that moment in Mockingjay when Katniss recalls Peeta’s answer to her ‘stay with me’ from Catching Fire? It was so heartbreaking, right?  We have a hijacked Peeta who currently has no love for Katniss, and this word emerging from some cubby hole in her brain just makes his loathing for her that much more painful.  So tragic!

Anyways, we know about this great image because of katnipkatniss12 on twitter!



One response to “Always

  1. I’ve always thought that Snape and Peeta have a lot in common; both fall in love at a young age with a girl who’s considered to be in a lower class than he is.

    Also, don’t forget that Katniss’s anguish when she remembers his reply, actually sets up an epic Everlark moment later on in MJ….

    “Don’t let him take you from me.”

    Peeta’s panting hard as he fights the nightmares raging in his head. “No. I don’t want to…”

    “I clench his hands to the point of pain. “Stay with me.”

    His pupils contract to pinpoints, dilate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normality. “Always,” he murmurs.

    So it seems that at this point, Peeta remembers, too. Gee, I really hope this exchange isn’t cut from the CF movie!
