I just want to talk a little bit about this piece of underrated Josh acting.
Obviously getting your name called at the Reaping fucking sucks. You’re going to be put through unnecessary, unjustified violence and murder against your peers with no training or preparation, you’re probably malnourished, and yet you’re expected to fight to the death. But that’s not what’s going through Peeta’s mind. He knows he has nothing in District 12. He knows his mother doesn’t appreciate him and doesn’t believe he’d win. By this point, Katniss has already volunteered to compete—Katniss, the girl he’s loved for years. He’s already terrified for her. He knows he’s going to lose her. But now he has to fight her. Now he’s expected to murder her. Peeta isn’t afraid to die. He’s afraid for Katniss.
