Probably because Katniss self-describes herself in the book as being quite thin?
Though I agree, Jennifer Lawrence definitely didn’t need to lose weight for the role. She was amazing/perfect as-is.

I just wish, if we’re going to go that route, that people would pay some attention to Gale. I know we didn’t see him much, but Liam was pretty well-built during filming for that role. Why don’t we take his physicality down a few pegs if we’re going to discuss Katniss’/Jen’s body type? : /

I know, right? It’s because people aren’t socialized to criticize the thinness of men’s bodies; instead, we are socialized to criticize the muscularity of them. Since Liam more obviously fits the male actor body type, whereas Jennifer is not standard model/movie star-size, no one thinks to criticize him.  Actually.  With the exception of Fassy, I can’t remember the last time anyone criticized the body type of a male actor.

In-fricken-deed. I think that’s what really gets me. Jen is gorgeous (and not “big” in any sense of the word, imo, I don’t know WHAT pictures these people are looking at), but we still fault her for her physicality. Where as Liam is so distinctly NOT Gale (if anything, I think it was implied that Gale should be pretty thin because he has brothers and a mother to feed, whereas Katniss just has two other members AND Prim’s goat, while Gale needs to go off of just what he can hunt/trade for) in physicality. But no one cares because he has muscles and a penis. : / Not okay.
I mean, I don’t want to advocate pettiness either, I think that the movie was great and all the actors were great. It was well done. But I really think we need to be fair here. If you’re going to complain about Katniss, then complain about Gale too. Otherwise, I have a hard time reading you as anything other than incredibly shallow.

Because my little Seneca being teased about his name by someone named “Castiel” or “Severus” is going to have WAAAY less standing that some kid named “Ted.”

But seriously, don’t tease him. I will end you. : |

“Wonderful! Look how thrilled she is!” Mary Jane coos.
Whether she doesn’t notice the pallor of Tabby’s skin, or is choosing to ignore it, doesn’t matter. She’s making her way across the stage in impractically tall heels. The boy’s jar sits like blind, deaf and dumb prey. It would have to be all of those things for Mary Jane Watson to swoop in as easily as she does.
Even in the thick blanket of tension, he finds Scott’s mind above them all. Scott isn’t afraid for himself, but for Alex. His optimism has only ever been equally matched by his cynicism. Alex’s name is only in there once, Scott has done all he could to assure that, but, in a lottery, it doesn’t mean anything. He was right this morning, and Charles has known it all along. Scott’s mind screams so loudly that it’s gone silent, which leaves Charles just enough time to focus on Mary Jane before her voice hits the air.
“Charles Xavier!”

So I was rereading Hunger Games last night and I had a Thought, and you've probably already considered it and have a Plan, but just in case I wanted to bring it to your attn. I know you're thinking of having C be from District One but hate the Careers, and I was just wondering how it would work for him to be a pacifist or generally dislike the Games but still end up in them when D1 is usually swarmed with volunteers battling for the honor?

I decided to go a different route suggested to me, which is that Charles lives in a non-Career district but belongs to a family with a previous victor. Which means he lives in the nicer, lavish houses of Victory Village.

Because you’re right. If Charles was chosen and people were swarming to volunteer around him, he wouldn’t stand a chance as a pacifist. I actually hadn’t even considered that before going this route, I just didn’t see Charles being from one of the Career districts. Plus, he needed to be in the same District as Erik, and I couldn’t see Erik in any of the better-kept Districts either.

Does anyone happen to know if there’s a Hunger Games/Cherik AU floating around?
