These two videos by dani72187 pay homage to our two protagonists, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, made to fight for their lives in the Hunger Games arena.
Peeta suffers nightmares — mostly about Katniss not being there — but the thing we learn early about Peeta is that he’s a boy with integrity and someone who knows exactly who he is. My favourite Peeta quote is:
“I don’t know how to say it exactly. Only…I want to die as myself. Does that make any sense? I don’t want them to change me in there. Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.”
Katniss, just like Peeta, sacrifices her life to take care of her family. She might not be sweet and gentle like Peeta but she puts herself at risk to take care of those she loves. Her ultimate sacrifice comes when she volunteers to take her sister’s place in the 74th Hunger Games.
“I can feel someone pulling her from my back. I turn and see Gale has lifted Prim off the ground and she’s thrashing in his arms. “Up you go, Catnip,” he says, in a voice he’s fighting to keep steady, and then he carries Prim off towards my mother. I steel myself and climb the stairs.”
