Anonymous whispered:
I don't want to be rude but Katniss was white. She had to be white or at least primarily white, or else it's literally genetically impossible for her sister to be blond haired and blue eyed. Her mother, also, was naturally blond haired and blue eyed, so she had to be at least half white, and because those are both recessive traits her father had to be half white also for Prim to be able to look that way. Sorry.

oh my god it is not impossible or even nearly impossible for katniss to be white. she could have been mixed or “half white” okay, but she was definitely not white. quoting straight from the books here:

"I watch as Gale pulls out his knife and slices the bread. He could be my brother. Straight black hair, olive skin, we even have the same grey eyes. Most of the families who work the mines resemble one another this way."

It then goes on to state:

"That’s why my mother and Prim, with their light hair and blue eyes, always look out of place. They are."

This is quoted from The Hunger Games, Scholastic paperback boxset edition page 9. Note the description of both Katniss’ and Gale’s skin tone. Olive. Not white. Olive. Note as well that most people in District 12 have this same look, meaning that most people there are not white either. It is wholly possible for non-white people to have blonde hair and blue eyes anyway. Plus, this is a work of fiction. You wanna tell me how someone can have naturally pink hair it’s okay but the moment a non-white person has family members who are blonde it’s unrealistic for them to be anything but white?

It is also wholly possible for some people in a family to not be blonde while others are. Hell, in my family one of my little brothers has blonde hair while I have brown and my mom’s is jet black. Neither of my parents are blonde.

And just in case you’re not clear on that whole “olive skin” and what that means, well, here’s the wikipedia definition of what olive skin is:

[Olive skin] is often associated with pigmentation in the Type IV to Type V range of the Fitzpatrick scale.

Type IV coloration is frequent among populations from the Mediterranean and parts of Latin America.It corresponds with moderate brown, typical Mediterranean skin tones.

Type V coloration is frequent among populations from the Middle East, parts of Latin America, parts of Africa, and the Indian subcontinent.It corresponds with dark brown, Middle Eastern skin tones.

So olive skin is moderate to dark brown. Not white. Katniss is not white, Gale is not white, and hell, even most of District 12 is not white. And if you want my personal opinion as to what their race truly was? My speculation is that most of District 12 was Native American.

"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him. 

As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either. 

He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight. 

Some inspiring things he said;

"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"

"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"

"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."

"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"

Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”

Someone needs to write a fic of a battalion of superheroes randomly showing up at Sam’s doorstep because they have nowhere else to go.

"Hey Sam… so Pepper threw me out of my house and Rhodey’s on vacation in Mexico."

"Steve has spoken much of you Son of Wil. Do you wish to do battle against my adopted brother?"

"So… show an archer these wings I’ve heard so much about."

"HULK. HUNGRY."

And Sam cursing Steve and Natasha in the depths of his soul because they started the trend and then told all their friends about it.
