Our Fan of the Week is Kelsey Moore. We love her Katniss look as well as the fan art/wallpapers she’s put together. The first one is of one of her favorite dialogues in Mockingjay, while the second is a collectioin of quotes with Peeta, Katniss and their trainers. You can click on the images to see them in their full size:
What is it about The Hunger Games you love so much?
Despite the fact that the country of Panem and its citizens are part of dystopia in the distant future, the way Suzanne Collins portrays her character, they become entirely relatable. The first time I read the Trilogy, I was done before two days had past, I just couldn’t put it down! I, like so many other people I’ve heard from became obsessed! But Katniss was such a relatable character for me, I too was thrust into a role where I had to become an adult and take charge before I was even a teen, and I feel extremely protective of those I love. Plus I love archery!
Who is your favorite character in The Hunger Games?
Besides Katniss, I love Peeta. His undying love for Katniss is inspiring and breathtaking. He’s willing to go to any ends to protect her, regardless of whether or not she feels the same. And his fight in Mockingjay, to get back to his normal kind self, and to get back to Katniss, is admirable and heartbreaking at the same time. It would have been so easy for his character to give into the new memories that dominated his mind. But instead he fought because his love for Katniss was so true and ran so deep, that even the Capitol’s poison could not separate him from her.
What are your expectations for The Hunger Games movie?
You know I’ve been hearing a lot of talk lately about the concern people have the movies never stay true to the books, and they fear this will be the case with The Hunger Games. I however am not concerned at all. The fact that Suzanne Collins was brought in to review and approve the script reassures me that, even if there are changes, the movie will stay true to the heart of the story. I am so unbelievably excited for the movie!
What’s your favorite quote?
This is an extremely hard question. I have so many…
My favorite is probably Cinna, when he is holding Katniss’s hand before she launches into the stadium and says, “Remember Girl on Fire, I’m still betting on you.” Even in this extremely intense, frightening moment, Cinna provides Katniss with this huge gift, hope. Because suddenly, she’s betting on herself too.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I love this website, I check “My Hunger Games” every day, at least once. Thank you so much for your work and putting all Hunger Games related information in one easy place! I’ve also attached another fan art that I’ve done with Peeta and Katniss and a quote from Mockingjay, another one of my favorite discussions where you can see Katniss’s true feelings for Peeta seeping out
