Gloomscapes #14

Hi there, I hope everybody’s had a good week. In today’s Gloomscapes entry, I continue with the Hunger Games theme.

I only have to pass a few gates to reach the scruffy field called the Meadow. Separating the Meadow from the woods, in fact enclosing all of District 12, is a high chain-link fence topped with barbed-wire loops.

Yes, I realise the pictures are not a completely accurate representation of the text. No barbed-wire loops, most of all. But you know, it would be quite hard to find scenes from dytopian books in real life, as we don’t live in a totalitarian regime.


Gloomscapes #13

Hello world, it’s Sunday again, which means Gloomscapes.

Lucky number thirteen it is today and so it has to be, of course, District 13 from the Hunger Games trilogy.

A mockingjay. Just a glimpse of it as it flies by. The same one every time.

~Susan Collins, Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2)

Mockingjay is, in the Hunger Games universe, a fictional hybrid bird, which becomes a symbol of Resistance. It’s also the title of the third book. When I viewed this picture on my computer and saw the flying bird, I was immediately reminded of the above quote from Catching Fire. I’m glad I got a chance to post it on the blog finally!
