For those who don't read THG forums, that girl recanted. Guess she got caught in a bit of a lie.

Hey Guys! Sorry, I haven't been as active here as I want to be... but life calls...

I thought you guys would enjoy this vid shown on Mockingjay.net. It's a very, very, very well made fan video. And it made me cry.... http://mockingjay.net/2010/11/16/the-hunger-games-katniss-rue-movie-scene-by-mainstaypro/

Hi Everyone!

I just finished the trilogy, so I have to catch up on all you've been discussing. It looks like mostly movie news - Have you discussed just how they're going to handle ALL that violence? I'm mean it's pretty gruesome. Don't get me wrong, I loved the books!!!

Amanda wrote: I did name her daughter Madge. Even though she's dead it wasn't a death Katniss saw and I felt since Madge really want the reason behind the mockingjay I thought it would be nice. And I think the son would be named after her father--they had such a great relationship and a lot of people are named after their grandparents.


In my story I named the daughter "Grace" and the son "Sage". Because the names have several meanings that I think an adult and mostly healed Katniss could appreciate.

Just popping in to say I finished the first two books, practically devoured them. Finally off to the last one, I don't want to start it yet though, I have things to do this weekend and I'll never get them done if I start.

Great series.

Finished the series yesterday, what a great read that was. I'll probably post some of my thoughts later.

BTW, recent rumors had Hailee Steinfeld as a serious contender for the Katniss role. Lainey Gossip is now reporting that Jennifer Lawrence is closing in on the deal and had given a reading of Katniss that blew everyone away.

Whoever they pick, they need to do it quick. I think filming is supposed to being within the next couple of months.

Sure, I might do that. :)

I read your fanfic chapters for Mockingjay, and I thought you did a very good job. You hit two points just right that I strongly agreed with, but I’ll stick them in the invisible font in case someone else decides to give them a look.

1) Haymitch had a strong hunch what Katniss was up to at the end.
2) Katniss eventually finds she needs Peeta at night to help quell her nightmares, which is how they really start getting back together again.
