Writing is a way to fly, an achievable form of fancy, of the imagination. Without the ability to twist language, life would be grounded. Why be chained to the earth when you could soar among the stars?
"At that moment, the urge to be writing was stronger than any notion she had of what she might write."
When Katniss was in the Games, Prim and her mother would spend every day in front of the television with Gale and his family. When scary parts came on, Prim would hide her face in Rory’s shoulder. As the Games went on, she became closer to Rory. At about the same time Peeta announced that Katniss was pregnant, Prim and Rory began having a relationship. They covered it up because they didn’t want to injure their families. They planned to tell everyone after they won the war against the Capitol, but that day never came. Prim was killed and Rory felt guilty that he had allowed her to help with the efforts. Every day, he sits in his room and cries, missing her more than anything.
