# series: the hunger games
# otp: katniss x peeta
# gif set
# too many feelings
# people who don't know how to pray who construct gods and cathedrals of each other
# he grounds himself in her body because she's holier than he is in his own estimation
# because he thinks he's worse than human and unworthy of being loved and she elevates him
# she ignites him to react against his better instincts; he breaks things and cuts his hands and everything ruptures
# and that's what makes him holy to her - the idea that she can be something Good with a capital g; that she isn't just this wrecking force...
# trying to hold everything together and failing: a life by katniss everdeen
# it's kind of tautological because these idiots are a whole person as a pair
# and not actually whole people unto themselves
# people who try to masquerade as whole people for the sake of strength but aren't actually
# making each other holy in order to engineer self-forgiveness and their own redemption
# if he loses her he becomes a cold bitter shell of a person (see: cf)
# if she loses him it's a confirmation that she was ruthless and vindictive and awful and that he just saw it
# redemption and faith are wrapped entirely up in their own frail bodies
# until they lose that structure halfway through catching fire and have to tear the church down
# and rebuild it (in mj) as a monument rather than a holy site itself
