Break out the tapered candles & shrines because the time is finally upon us. The Candlelight Vigil to Save Matty Donovan is here!
Even though some online recappers & spoiler peeps are reporting that UM was the “big death” promised to knock fans on their asses, we’re still nervous. Why? Maybe because to us here at SBH UM’s death was a forgone conclusion. He was expendable. He was a tool. NEXT! If that is the “BIG CHARACTER DEATH!!!” I say Hallelujah! He sure is worth more in death than he was in life.
BUT, it doesn’t change the fact that after “Plan B” our Matty/Peeta’s** dial on our family clock is positioned firmly in the “Mortal Danger” position. So for this week at least, we are praying hard. VERY HARD. We are calling upon every force we can call upon to beg, plead & grovel for our precious boy’s life.
This is serious business folks.
Every day from now until this Thursday’s episode 2.07 “Masquerade” airs we will be devoting our normal ‘Quote of the Day’ space to entire scenes from our time with Matt Donovan. *sigh* There will also be other features like fanmixes (today & Wed) and haiku’s. Group participation is VERY much encouraged. So bring your best pre-grief counselling skills, this is a time to help your fellow fan.
**We’ve explained this before, but it ALWAYS bears repeating. In the epic emotional journey that is The Hunger Games series, there is a very special boy named Peeta Mellark who damn near immediately captured our hearts with his sweetness, kindness, and willingness to sacrifice himself completely for the ones he loves — not to mention his blue blue blue eyes. Don’t you DARE roll your eyes at us. HE IS MAGNIFICENT!!! *ahem* Plus, boy can bake. That’s like 1000 bonus points in our book. Sound familiar? Baking aside (Matty’s abilities in this department remain to be seen), Peeta IS Matty. Matty IS Peeta. They both touched our hearts in ways we didn’t expect. They blindsided the both of us. Few men hit us square in the emoticon, but Matty and Peeta both managed to imbed themselves in our hearts forever. As far as we’re concerned, they’re indistinguisable.
Caroline: What are you doing here?
Matt: I came to see if today’s basketcase period had expired.
Caroline: You know, you should just go because my mom is gonna be home soon…
Matt: No, no, no… You’ve been dodging me all day. I’m more insecure than you are now.
Caroline: What do you mean?
Matt: It means that you almost died and it really freaked me out. And, it got me thinking, you know, cause I’m not in a position where I can lose someone else right now. I realize that even though today I wanted to throttle you, I’m pretty sure that I’m in love with you. And now it seems like you don’t feel the same way.
This special week would not be complete without a soundtrack to help express our love and fear. Share in this time with us.
Note: I did NOT color correct this picture. Seriously, that’s straight from the screencap. Yeah.
