Fixated by Ninidu Fixated by Ninidu
I like to watch his hands as he works, making a blank page bloom with strokes of ink, adding touches of color to our previously black and yellowish book. His face takes on a special look when he concentrates. His usual easy expression is replaced by something more intense and removed that suggests an entire world locked away inside him. I've seen flashes of this before: in the arena, or when he speaks to a crowd, or that time he shoved the Peacekeepers' guns away from me in District 11. I don't know quite what to make of it. I also become a little fixated on his eyelashes, which ordinarily you don't notice much because they're so blond. But up close, in the sunlight slanting in from the window, they're a light golden color and so long I don't see how they keep from getting all tangled up when he blinks.

One afternoon Peeta stops shading a blossom and looks up so suddenly that I start, as though I were caught spying on him, which in a strange way maybe I was. But he only says, “You know, I think this is the first time we've ever done anything normal together.”




Yet another scene from Catching Fire.
Peeta is drawing plants and Katniss is absorbed by his eyelashes.
I added the cheesebuns because I thought that whenever Peeta visited he would bring Katniss' favourites :P

I also added a painting on the wall, a picture of the woods painted by Peeta since Katniss cannot go out.
