Mockingjay Discussion 16: Katniss’ Meadow Song

There are two songs that Katniss Everdeen sings for us in Mockingjay. The first, ‘The Hanging Tree,’ is new to us but is the heart and focus of the series finale. If you wondered why Finnick, then Katniss, and finally Peeta spent a good part of the book tying nooses with remnant pieces of rope, the answer is in the haunting call of the hanged man that they are heeding.

I wrote about ‘The Hanging Tree’ at some length yesterday and I hope you will read that post before this one on the other song in Mockingjay. That song isn’t named but we have heard it in each of the series’ three books and always at a critical juncture. For lack of a proper name, I’ll call it ‘The Meadow Song.’ Let’s review its appearances in each Hunger Games novel before attempting to explain why it is the theme of the series and how it relates to Mockingjays’ ‘Hanging Tree.’

We first hear the song at Rue’s death scene (Games, chapter 18, pp. 234-235). She asks Katniss to sing, and, in obedience to this deathbed request, Miss Everdeen does her best:

Sing. My throat is tight with tears, hoarse from smoke and fatigue. But if this is Prim’s, I mean Rue’s last request, I have to at least try. The song that comes to me is a simple lullaby, one we sing fretful, hungry babies to sleep with. It’s old, very old I think. Made up long ago in our hills. What my music teacher calls a mountain air. But the words are easy and soothing, promising tomorrow will be more hopeful than this awful piece of time we call today.

I give a small cough, swallow hard and begin.

Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open, the sun will rise.
Here it’s safe, here it’s warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true

Here is the place where I love you.

Rue’s eyes have fluttered shut. Her chest moves but only slightly. My throat releases the tears and they slide down my cheeks. But I have to finish the song for her.

Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it’s morning, they’ll wash away.

Here it’s safe, here it’s warm

Here the daisies guard you from every harm

The final lines are barely audible.

Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Everything’s still and quiet. Then, almost eerily, the mockingjays take up my song.

After bedecking her in wild flowers when she understands what Peeta told her on the roof, Katniss steps back “and [I] take a long look at Rue. She could really be asleep in that meadow after all” (Games, chapter 18, p. 237).

The next time we visit the meadow is in Catching Fire‘s arena. Katniss and Finnick are recovering from the Jabberjay segment of the Gamesmaker’s sadistic clock. Peeta has talked Katniss out of the panic and the worst of the shock consequent to hearing Prim’s tortured screams and pleas for help. The two have taken the first watch by the lake and, as their fellow Victor-tributes fall to sleep, Peeta gives Katniss the gold locket-disk and makes his case that she should be the one that lives.

She realizes “only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.” Her response, consequent to this realization is to kiss Peeta, and, this time, she is transformed by love “to the tips of her being” (Fire, chapter 24, p. 362-363):

The sensation inside me grows warmer and spreads out from my chest, down through my body, out along my arms and legs, to the tips of my being. Instead of satisfying me, the kisses have the opposite effect, of making my need greater. I thought I was something of an expert on hunger, but this is an entirely new kind.

Finnick relieves Katniss from her watch duties when the lightning tree is struck at midnight and Katniss goes to sleep (pp.364-5).

As I drift off, I try to imagine that world, somewhere in the future, with no Games, no Capitol. A place like the meadow in the song I sang to Rue as she died. Where Peeta’s child could be safe.

When I wake, I have a brief, delicious feeling of happiness that is somehow connected with Peeta.

To Katniss and every other citizen of District 12, “the Meadow” is a specific place as well as the Eden of lullabies. She describes it in the first chapter of Games (chapter 1, p. 4):

Our house is almost at the edge of the Seam. I only have to pass a few gates to reach the scruffy field called the Meadow. Separating the Meadow from the woods, in fact enclosing all of District 12, is a high chain-link fence topped with barbed wire loops.

This Meadow, always capitalized in the books, is where Katniss prefers to crawl under the fence because its bushes offer some concealment. The few other District 12 adventurers that enter the woods to harvest apples in the fall never leave sight of the Meadow (p. 6).

It is something of a safe-place or touchstone for Katniss, too. We learn in Mockingjay that she “had exactly one hiding spot [as a little girl] — in the Meadow under a honeysuckle bush” (chapter 9, p.125). This is where she runs and where her father finds her when she was frightened by her usually placid mother having “snatched the rope necklaces away and was yelling at my father.” Katniss had been singing ‘The Hanging Tree’ to Prim and “making us necklaces out of scraps of old rope like it said in the song, not knowing the real meaning of the words” (p. 124).

We come full circle back to the Meadow in the last chapter of the last book. Katniss has been sent back to District 12 in something like “internal exile” after her advocates in court successfully made an insanity defense for her execution of President Coin. When she rises from her stupor and heads to the Meadow with a thought of hunting in the woods, she meets people with death carts gathering the remains of those who died during the fire bombing. The Meadow is no longer a “scruffy field” with “honeysuckle bushes.”

I nod [to Thom and his death cart] and keep moving, careful not to look in the back of the cart. All through the town and the Seam, it’s the same. The reaping of the dead. As I near the ruins of my old house, the road becomes thick with carts. The Meadow’s gone, or at least dramatically altered. A deep pit has been dug, and they’re lining it with bones, a mass grave for my people. I skirt around the hole and enter the woods in my usual place.

She is so tired when she returns that “Thom has to give me a ride home in the dead people’s cart” (p.385). Time passes and eventually District 12 comes back to life (pp. 387-388).

We’re not alone. A few hundred others return because, whatever has happened, this is our home. With the mines closed, they plow the ashes into the earth and plant food. Machines from the Capitol break ground for a new factory where we will make medicines. Although no one seeds it, the Meadow turns green again.

And Peeta is there as well (ibid).

Peeta and I grow back together. There are still moments when he clutches the back of a chair and hangs on until the flashbacks are over. I wake screaming from nightmares of mutts and lost children. But his arms are there to comfort me. And eventually his lips. On the night I feel that thing again, the hunger that overtook me on the beach, I know this would have happened anyway. That what I need to survive is not Gale’s fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.

Katniss tells us in the Mockingjay epilogue about the children she has with Peeta, the ones she hoped in Fire “would be safe” playing in the meadow of Rue’s lullaby, the Meadow Song. Their boy and girl “play in the Meadow” and “take the words of the song for granted,” the Meadow Song which Katniss sings again.  She notes, though, that her children “don’t know they play on a graveyard” (pp. 389-390).

The Meaning of the Meadow Song

I argued in ‘The Pearl Plot’ that the foundation of everything in Hunger Games is to be found in the Meadow and a large part of that argument is the place the song sung at Rue’s death in the story.

Rue’s death and Katniss’ bedecking her corpse with flowers are scenes that echo throughout the rest of Hunger Games and Catching Fire — think of the District 11 salute she receives on the Victory tour, Peeta’s confronting the Games Makers with Rue’s icon, and its prequel echo in Haymitch’s farewell to Maysilee Donner in his Quell — but this song, a lullaby that infants trust as truth, is, because of its age and meaning, the primordial aspect of life transcending Panem that Katniss taps into as her core strength and surety. As we’ve just read above, she returns to this forgotten meadow paradise in her Quell on the beach when she commits herself to serving Peeta even at the cost of her life.

This happiness associated with Peeta and the meadow where his baby lives, I think, is the unconditional, selfless, and sacrificial love Katniss has just experienced in his kiss, a love that extends to the “tips of [her] being” (Fire, chapter 24, page 352). Peeta’s Christ-like love is this absolute and transcendent point that is the center or origin of the Hunger Games trilogy circle.

Her real-world meadow near the Seam serves this function because it is her place of retreat as a child, her only hiding place, a golden bush and place of light the darkness cannot enter. It eventually becomes her way of escaping or transcending the nightmare of District 12 existence in being her point of transition to the forest, freedom, food, and fellowship.

But this Meadow at the surface of things is just a “scruffy field” and nothing like the paradise of the song, in which

Here it’s safe, here it’s warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true

Here is the place where I love you.

That Meadow, the Eden the Everdeen-Mellark children “take for granted,” grows green though no one seeds it because it is so well fertilized by the bodies and bones of the thousands who died in the fire-bombing. A greater life, even paradise, grows out of death. Which brings us back to ‘The Hanging Tree.’

As I explained yesterday, ‘The Hanging Tree’ is the Tree of Life and the Cross of Calvary, the hanged man is Christ, and his call is for us to “flee” the world and join Him in the death to self that promises eternal life and love. Katniss as a child hears this song, has the words “branded into her mind” and makes “rope necklaces” (nooses) for her and her baby sister “just as the song said.” In Mockingjay, Finnick, Katniss, and Peeta all work through their issues with these ropes which nooses become, in light of the meaning of ‘Hanging Tree,’ something like prayer ropes or rosaries.

Katniss, the Mockingjay and ‘Girl on Fire,’ becomes a “fire-mutt” in the explosion that kills Prim and burns Peeta badly as well. The description of her experience is telling (Mockingjay, chapter 25, p. 348):

Real or not real? I am on fire. The balls of flame that erupted from the parachutes shot over the barricades, through the snowy air, and landed in the crowd. I was just turning away when one caught me, ran its tongue up the back of my body, and transformed me into something new. A creature as unquenchable as the sun.

In one word, Katniss at last becomes a phoenix, the resurrection bird. It is not a pretty or painless process, but agony she survives to execute President Snow, whom President Coin has assured her “I’ve saved him for you.” Her father appears in her hallucinations and “sings all four stanzas of ‘The Hanging Tree’ and reminds me that my mother — who sleeps in a chair between shifts — isn’t to know about it” (p. 360).

Having killed Coin instead of Snow with her arrow after learning that it was the District 13 President who ordered the killing of the children and rescue workers, Katniss is confined to her former Training Session room where she enters the near catatonic state her mother did after the death of her husband in the mine explosion. She accepts, even embraces death — and in this death to self, she is acquitted of her crime, taken up into the sky, and returned to the Meadow, soon to reveal itself as the Meadow of the song, and to Peeta, her beloved, and, in preventing her taking the nightlock tablet in the Mansion, her savior.

To return to the Meadow, then, an other worldly paradise, Mockingjay tells us, requires a psychological purification by fire akin to Purgatory and a renunciation of the world’s principalities and powers and of ego self and individual persona amounting to sacrificial death. Katniss does this metaphorically in slaying the woman who has ascended to the peak of political power and who is named for money and by her leaving to God the revenge she craved in being able to kill Snow.

The two songs in Mockingjay, ‘The Hanging Tree’ and ‘The Meadow Song,’ work in conjunction to create a picture of the way to transcend the world. In brief, we must be willing to hear and heed the call of the man hanging from the tree and flee the world. Our death to selves in love for him will bring us to the Eden Meadow, the field containing the Pearl of Great Price,  where “here is the place that I love you.”

Your comments and corrections are coveted.


  1. I agree with everything you said here.

  2. I loved the return of this song in the Epilogue, and how it symbolized that after everything, Katniss’s wish on the beach in CF came true. We don’t know much about the post-revolution society of Panem, but we do know in the Epilogue that there are no more hunger games, and that it is a world where Peeta and Katniss’s children can be safe. I think that rebirth, and beauty arising from great suffering and death is a prominent theme in the series. The bodies of the slain citizens of District 12 have made the meadow fertile for the next generation. Along with all the horror and destruction of the hunger games and the war, beautiful things arose out of them as well, the bonds between h.g. survivors such as Finnick, Annie, Johanna, Haymitch, Katniss, and Peeta. The loyalty and cohesiveness of the “Star Team” and Katniss and Peeta. In CF she remembers Effie’s description of them as coal being pressured into pearls (incorrect technically but correct in their case), beauty that arose out of pain.
    To avoid the risk of getting too off topic here, I’ll conclude for now, there’s so much to thing about regarding this post, I’ll have to mull over it some more when I’m more coherent.

  3. Beautiful analysis, John! At first, reading Hunger Games, I wondered why Collins didn’t use a real Appalachian ballad, as we’ve no shortage, many of which are centuries old. Or she could have used a song that is current today as an “ancient” song in District 12. But clearly, she needs a song that says only what this song does, though it resembles “real” songs like “Down in the Valley,” which I hoped might be revealed was the song Katniss sang at school (the Valley Song, as Peeta says). I would also love to know what songs Collins had in mind for the “concert of grief” Katniss sings day after day during her confinement after she assassinates Coin. We Appalachian people use music to rejoice (that wedding dance! A fiddler made it, of course, hallelujah!), to grieve, to survive. The songs, which folks from outside the region sometimes think are strange, grim, or even downright depressing, somehow work for this culture (more on the grim stuff of murder ballads coming on the Hanging Tree thread). As a person who teaches about Appalachian music, I’m always intrigued by the songs that have survived until now, and I wonder which ones future “songcatchers” will collect or which will descend from parent to child into years far from now.
    Why does Katniss sing? Because she must; she’s a mountain woman, and she’s a bird.

  4. Elizabeth, thanks for reminding me of the valley song and tying to Down in the Valley, a song my mother used to sing to us and one I sang to my girls when they were little.

  5. Brilliant analysis John. The only thing I would add, and really it’s just a simplification of what you said, is that The Meadow is Heaven. It is the afterlife for the people of Panem.

    Remember, they have no religion. A brutal Authoritarian slave-state has prevented them from having that. This almost mythical meadow is the closest thing they get to an afterlife.

    The concept of Katniss and Peeta’s children taking the meadow for granted is yet another piece of commentary on our modern world as well, only more immediate.

    These children’s parents just fought hard for their freedom, so that they could literally live in Heaven. Will they and their descendents take this for granted always, or will they understand and value the sacrifices that were made so that they can keep the Heaven they’ve been given? The one that was built on the thousands of souls buried underneath their feet.

  6. Though I’m not usually one to complain about Christian symbolism, I found the article hard to follow due to the constant Christian references. I don’t think that they are incorrect, though.

    That said, I’m looking at the meaning of the song – that death is the safest state of being – more secularly. It’s safe to assume from the first few lines that the Meadow in the song is a graveyard. Where else are beds of grass? The fact that is mentions the pillow specifically is another reference to the graveyard, where usually only heads are marked. It’s inviting the listener to die, much like Hanging Tree does. It’s asking for the same kind of death, though it doesn’t give a cause, only that it’s safer to be dead. I can see where the Christian message comes through here, that death to oneself brings life in Christ. The song then mentions daisies, which I’ve always found to be associated with death. By the end of the song, it becomes transparent that death is safe and cozy.

    Singing the song to Rue as she escapes the brutal Games into the safety of death resonates with this. When Katniss coves Rue in flowers, it can only be assumed that they are the guard flowers mentioned in the song. Isn’t she in a clearing (meadow) where Rue dies? Rue is the child in the song, dying quietly in the Meadow, guarded by flowers.

    In CF, Katniss thinks of the song as she drifts off to sleep. The timing, to me, confirms that the song means death, not sleep. In order to get to that safe world she wants, the rebellion must succeed, again linking the song to “Tree”. For the rebellion to succeed, blood must be shed. The death must take place, like “Meadow” suggests. Death brings happiness. The world Katniss wants will exist only after it is transformed into a graveyard.

    Collins again links the two songs when Katniss remembers how “Tree” was banned. The link from getting in trouble with Mom and fleeing to safety is obvious, but when why she got in trouble is analyzed it becomes much more interesting. Mr. Everdeen was making the noose, the escape to freedom through death, with Katniss and Prim. When that death results in a presence in the Meadow, Collins reveals that a “Tree”-style death leads to a peaceful, happy after-life in the Meadow.

    At the end of Mockinjay, when Katniss is so tired that she must take a ride in the death cart to get home, shows that she, like those who died for the cause, accepted a “Tree” style death and belongs in the happiness of the Meadow. The epilogue taking place in the Meadow accomplishes this.

    The scene of the epilogue only proves that the Meadow in D12 is the Meadow of the song- both graveyards that lead to happiness and safety.
    I agree with John, but I had to see it without the immediate comparisons to Christianity. The one I saw first & see strongest is the Meadow being Heaven, which I didn’t actually see mentioned.

  7. Another great comment. I’d only note in passing that “paradise” and “heaven” are not necessarily different or even “places,” per se, in the revealed traditions but a-local stations to be experienced, potentially at least, by the living or dead.

  8. Very interesting and I’m inclined to agree with you. When I read MockingJay, the line in the epilogue which states that Katniss’s children play on a graveyard says it all for me. The meadow is a symbol of paradise and peace. The fact that the dead of District 12 were buried in it is of course symbollic and is Collins’s own way of saying that in war if you are fighting to achieve peace innocent people will be sacrificed. Katniss’s children are able to live as they do because of the foundation set by these people. Your Christian interpretations also seem accurate, although part of me feels the urge to cringe at the idea of it because of what I like to call the Narnia Revelations.

  9. A beautiful analogy. I want to know the tune of this song, although there might not be one, because it’s so beautiful.

  10. beautiful song!

  11. I’m surprised that no one has mentioned the significance of the “daisies” from the second stanza. The daisy is, of course, a classic bit of Christian symbolism signifying Christ or, more specifically, the innocence and purity of the Christ-child. And, of course, the French word for “daisy” is “marguerite,” which adds to the layers of pearl/Margaret symbolism.

  12. I had never thought of the significance of these two songs. Your article really helped me understand the true and deep meanings of these songs. I now appreciate these books even more. Collins was brilliantly clever to tie in this moral into such an amazing and dramatic young adult book. I loved how important Rue’s and Prim’s death were to the series. They live on forever in The Meadow.

    I’m serious: I think these books have changed my life forever. I loved them so much.

    I have a few questions about the book. If someone could answer I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Here are the questions:

    1. What does it mean that Katniss and Peeta are fire mutts? Will they be fire mutts forever?

    2. Does anyone know what Katniss’ and Peeta’s children’s names are?

    3. Do Katniss and Gale ever talk or become friends after Gale supposedly created the bombs that killed Prim(I was so sad I cried for hours when Prim died)?

    4. Does Peeta ever stop having those moments where he wants to hurt Katniss?

    Thanks so much!

    I love Primrose! She will live in my heart forever! She is my favorite character and I am most like her. I love you Prim!

    I can’t wait for the upcoming movie next month! It’s when the Hunger Games will come to life in front of us all.

    Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

  13. I think all of what you said about the meadow was untrue. None of the stories have evr revolved around them as you may thimk. My sister is Jacqueline Emerson she is going to play Foxface in the nex hunger games movie. It’s a relively small part but we have both read all the books and our comments are the same “We don’t think you have a clue what the story is even about!” She says with a frown “Please don’t post opinionated paragraphs, none of the details besides maybe a few were real or in your own words” thanks for reading the books any way i would lik to add.
    -The Emerson sisters

  14. i would just like to add some insight to the creator of this thingy. So i was just wondering, why exactly do you even think the meadow in the song and gale and Catnip’s hunting meadow are the same. Hanna had a point when she said this article was opinionated, and i think she was partly right as well. the book, as you copied and pasted says “As I drift off, I try to imagine that world, somewhere in the future, with no Games, no Capitol. A place like the meadow in the song I sang to Rue as she died. Where Peeta’s child could be safe.” which means that they are two different places thanks agin for allowing me to post the better of opinions on this page.

  15. Divaalix says

    People, please, if you want to be taken seriously, make sure you’re actually using correct grammar and pronunciation. Furthermore, if you’re going to disagree with someone, have an articulate counter argument as opposed to just telling someone they’re wrong. It’s also rather problematic to accuse someone of being opinionated on their own website. Of course someone is going to express their passionate opinions on their own blog.
    Do I see eye to eye with John on every aspect of the novels, no, but I don’t tell him his interpretation or opinion is wrong, because who am I to say that? Literature is subjective.
    I rather doubt an actress in a movie about to premier is leaving posts on a blog because someone having a differing opinion bothers her so much. I’ll probably hush again after this because stimulating discourse on this thoughtful essay seems to have sadly petered out long ago, but I get comments emailed to me and felt moved to say “Please, people, think before you post, in the name of intelligent and civilized discourse.”

  16. Dear Emerson Sisters (or fans impersonating same),

    Thank you for joining the conversation at Hogwarts Professor! As Katniss says about Foxface, I’m guessing you’re the smartest ones here if we could all be given tests, so we appreciate your contribution/rebuke.

    Careful about those berries, ladies.

    Just sayin,’


  17. Will somebody please answer Primrose’s questions please? They are the exact ones i was wondering about. Thank you!!

  18. Okay one more question! I know that Peeta will never completely be the same, but he certainly seems to have some old-Peeta in him by the end of the book and in the Epilogue. Like for example when he says “You love me, real or not real?” It seems like old Peeta. Or how he gets back into hunting. Or how he waned children “so badly” which seems sort of Peeta-esque. A few more things….Does Katniss literally go insane? And then recovers after a few months or so? Also, in specifics, when she sits in her kitchen all that time while Greasy Sae makes her food and Peeta stops by with bread, how long was that for? A month? Six weeks? One more thing (sorry if this is an awkward question) In the very last paragraph she Katniss says “On the night i feel that thing again, the hunger that overtook me on the beach…..” and she finishes the paragraph “So after, when he whispers ‘ You love me, real or not real? ‘ I answer, ‘ Real. ‘ After what??? Somebody please read the paragraph and tell me if you think it’s suggesting what i think it’s suggesting! Thanks!!!

  19. I meant baking for Peeta! Baking!

  20. Katie_
    I’m sure it means exactly what you think it means. Suzanne is just very tasteful with her allusion to the suggestion.

  21. An observation on the daisies: don’t forget that the etymology is “day’s eyes.” Remember Bilbo’s riddle? “An eye in a blue face saw and eye in a green face. ‘That eye is like to this eye,’ said the first eye, ‘but in a low place, not in a high place.'” (sun on the daisies)

    Very fitting in this context, considering the association of eyes and enlightenment with Rue.

    I also wonder if you could draw some parallels between the two flowers frequently referenced by Katniss: the dandelion, and here, the daisy?

  22. Please answer my questions above. And Jenn and Katie, what do you mean it is what Katie was thinking? I think I know what you’re saying, but not sure. Thanks so much.

  23. Primrose, I think no one is answering your questions because nobody knows the answers, particularly the names of the children (there’s nothing from the text to extrapolate from–we don’t even know the names of Katniss’s parents).

    That being said, I think 1 and 4 can be guessed at with some measure of certainty. Yes, I think Peeta and Katniss will be fire-mutts forever. There are no more beautifying surgeries after this one. And it seems appropriate that their final transformations (particularly if the phoenix-rebirth rings true) would be permanent ones.

    I tend to think that the meaning behind the fire-mutt idea is that Katniss and Peeta will always be products of the Capitol (both from the Games and the war). It’s a past they’ll never escape because it scars their dreams, their bodies, their home, and their memories. But, again pursuing the phoenix idea, that which was designed to harm and kill them (designed by both the Capitol and district 13) in fact transforms them or at least gives them a place from where life can begin again (I think it’s somehow significant that Peeta’s most Peeta-eqsue moments come after the fire-mutt thing: he argues against the final Games and he commits to an act that save Katniss’s life because he can’t let her go).

    And I think that Peeta continuing to have flashbacks goes hand-in-hand with urges to kill Katniss, but, after whichever transcending moment (fire-mutt regeneration or Katniss kissing him in the sewer), at some point his love for her is stronger than his spastic urges to harm her. Not exactly a happily-ever-after, but it’s a tragic and beautiful thing that he can fight it for the rest of his life. As if in the end, he is still retains the good qualities of the first Peeta: the Peeta who refuses to be a piece in the Capitol’s games.

  24. I actually read these books last year and had to read them twice to fully grasp everything that goes on throughout the series. My husband thought I was crazy but they are really amazing. I have just read your two posts about the songs that are mentioned throughout the series and I think they really ring true. Collins really put alot of thought when she wrote these books and I do not doubt that alot of your analysis is true. Some of it may be by mistake but the depth of the songs, names, and titles of places means she wanted readers to really dig deeply when they read them. I’ve been pondering the books more and more and I had never even thought about the fact that when Katniss gets burned she is going from the MockingJay to a Phoenix(One who rises above the ashes). I found that amazing insite and the fact Peeta saves Katniss from the Nightlock pill. It never occured to me that he was saving her from taking the cowards way out. Anyways thank you for your insite. and too the Emerson sisters (if that is really you) Because you play a character doesn’t make you the know all of the books.. The only person who can trully claim that is the author. Thank you .

  25. Primrose says

    Hannah, people can post anything they want on the internet. Your not the boss of anyone. I don’t know why you said thank you for reading the books, you aren’t the author and they aren’t even your books. Don’t comment like that, someone(John) spent a lot of time and effort for this article. The article is thoughful, clever, and makes sense. HE IS RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG. HAHAHA!!! No need to be bratty like always. Oh, and you are not an Emerson, you are a faker. Don’t fall for it everyone, that girl goes to my school, she isn’t an Emerson. SHE IS A LIAR!

    Oh, and thanks for answering my questions, Anon.

    I’m not trying to be mean, I’m just defending John and what is right and fair. I hate when people think they are better than everyone else. Thanks for your understanding!

  26. Just saying, the person who wrote the complain about Hannah said they are Primrose, but they are a different Primrose from the one who asked the questions earlier. The Primrose who asked the questions before is me. Thank you Anon for answering my questions!

  27. there should be another book after mockingjay

  28. I love this. “The meadow is heaven”- I like that too. This causes a thought to rise in my brain-that it wouldn’t matter if Katniss and Peeta were dead together, but they’re not. I also think a lot about what would happen if one of them died-what would the other do? But I shouldn’t. The THG book have really affected me and how I think. Though they have cost a lot of emotions and an attachment to Peeta and “everything you are”. I would imagine that Peeniss’ children (as I call them) would be named after flowers like Prim and Rue are(or the girl anyway)? Maybe Finnick /Annie/Primrose/Rue- though new names would probably be more hopeful.xx

  29. What is the lyrics of the song she sings to her and peeta’s kids the one she adds her own twist to it and mentions her kids don’t know they play on a graveyard of bones.?

Speak Your Mind
