If it were up to me, I would try to forget the Hunger Games entirely. Never speak of them. Pretend they were nothing but a bad dream. But the Victory Tour makes that impossible.
As soon as anyone spills anything I am going to shout “THAT IS MAHOGANY!”
The Hunger Games meets Olympic Gymnastics. Everything I ever wanted and more. (Also I love how the maker of this video acknowledges that McKayla would obviously find a way to Amanar vault everyone to death if she were chosen as tribute, but Aly Raisman had more Olympic footage so it was easier to make this video with her in the Katniss role.)

Dear Hunger Games casting director: You dun goofed when you didn’t cast Epke Zonderland (who will henceforth be known as His Body is a Zonderland) as Peeta Mallark.
Also, awww, the male gymnasts give each other the best hugs.
I knew William Moseley was cast in that CW show based on a YA book, The Selection, with Julie Taylor. And I knew Ethan Peck was also cast in that show. But somehow I never put it together that my fantasy-casting picks for Peeta and Gale would be in this show together, forming two studly points of a love triangle. Thanks to Forever YA for pointing it out!
(Also, now I’m trying to remember, I had a snarky fantasy-casting pick for Gale—someone tall, dark, and completely devoid of charisma, someone so forgettable that I have completely forgotten his name. This is really going to bother me.)
imagine tribute deaths in the hunger games being represented by mmm whatcha say instead of cannon shots
“No one really needs me,” he says, and there’s no self-pity in his voice. It’s true his family doesn’t need him. They will mourn him, as will a handful of friends. But they will get on. Even Haymitch, with the help of a lot of white liquor, will get on. I realise only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.
Nice demonstration of what was missing from the movie.
