hi im aya and i basically like a lot of tv shows, books, movies, bands, and other stuffs.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us and we drown.
i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills
Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide.
Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.
What if it was suicide? But not in the way we automatically think. All of the tributes knew about Peeta’s love of Katniss and how they were “in love”. She saw Katniss show up to get medicine for Peeta, that they were “star-crossed lovers”. She had been following Peeta for a while. What if she saw him grab the nightlock, she didn’t know that Katniss knew what nightlock was. For all she knew Katniss and Peeta would take the berries together to survive, not knowing the terrible fate that would await them for eating the berries. For all she knew the Gamemakers were going to let them both live if they won, and live happily ever after. She knew that if she just told Peeta about the berries he wouldn’t believe her, why would he? She was smart, she was calculating, she knew she wouldn’t make it out alive. The best thing she could do was use her life FOR something. So she took the berries, knowing she would die. Yes, she would die, but it would be on her own terms. It wouldn’t be a gruesome or violent death like being stung by trackerjackets or having an arrow shot through her chest. She could have a peaceful ending, something most tributes couldn’t have. And with her death she could show Katniss and Peeta the danger of the nightlock and help the star-crossed lovers survive the games.
I don’t believe in no-win scenarios.
