Commission: Peeta and Katniss Quarter Quell by Catching-Smoke Commission: Peeta and Katniss Quarter Quell by Catching-Smoke
Commission for :iconstuckinthe90s:

Katniss and Peeta in the quarter quell.

Quote given was long so I picked I specific part of it:

“Peeta!” I scream. I shake him harder, even resort to slapping his face, but it's no use. His heart has failed. I am slapping emptiness. “Peeta!”

Finnick props Mags against a tree and pushes me out of the way. “Let me.” His fingers touch points at Peeta's neck, run over the bones in his ribs and spine. Then he pinches Peeta's nostrils shut.

“No!” I yell, hurling myself at Finnick, for surely he intends to make certain that Peeta's dead, to keep any hope of life from returning to him. Finnick's hand comes up and hits me so hard, so squarely in the chest that I go flying back into a nearby tree trunk. I'm stunned for a moment, by the pain, by trying to regain my wind, as I see Finnick close off Peeta's nose again. From where I sit, I pull an arrow, whip the notch into place, and am about to let it fly when I'm stopped by the sight of Finnick kissing Peeta. And it's so bizarre, even for Finnick, that I stay my hand. No, he's not kissing him. He's got Peeta's nose blocked off but his mouth tilted open, and he's blowing air into his lungs. I can see this, I can actually see Peeta's chest rising and falling. Then Finnick unzips the top of Peeta's jumpsuit and begins to pump the spot over his heart with the heels of his hands. Now that I've gotten through my shock...

Oh ! I like this drawing ! I would like to see the two other movies, but they're not released yet...

Defently one of favorite scenes in the series just because it shows how much she loves and can't live without him. Just like at the end of the first book where he's bleeding to death and all she can do is scream his name while the Capitol's trying to save him (I was disappointed they didn't put that scene in the movie because so important to her character and their relationship.) Even if she didn't want to admit it to Peeta or even herself, I knew she was in love with him after that. She's usually and seemly invinsible but without him or when he's in danger she goes into shock and becomes inconsolable. Plus I love the scene after that when Peeta's like, "I'm just little shaken" and Katniss is like, "shaken, you were dead!" and then she's so overjoyed he's alive she starts sobbing. Katniss, Finnick basicly brought your boyfriend back to life and he doesn't even get a proper thank you?!

Alicelisabeth Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012

Awesome! You just nailed it. This is exactly how I imaginated it.
Mags :c We couldn't know a lot about her, but damn, I liked her D:
prizz Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Student General Artist
This is one of my fave scenes in book 2! After this part, Katniss still doesn't know how she feels about Peeta? Unbelievable!

OH. MY. GAAAWWWSSHHH. This is so amazing. I love all the details you put into this. Peeta's fake leg, Mags and Finnick, the jungle, the sadness and despair on Katniss's face. This is truly phenomenal. Love it so much!!! :D

Wonderful use of perspective. Foreshortening is such a fiend! But you've done it flawlessly with Peeta's pose. I like that Finnick and Mags are in the background too. I love Finnick :'(

Brilliant work with perspective!!

I loved this part, but more specifically the part where Finnick gives her a weird look after the fact, piecing together that she really does care for Peeta.
fuzzyvonfuzz Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The part where she thinks he's kissing Peeta makes me laugh...funny that Katniss didn't know what CPR!
I love this pic :D
Aquardial Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
Wow! This was one heckuva moment in the books, scared me to pieces when I read it. I felt like MY heart had stopped!
I kinda agree with user 'theave' that the knife would've been cool to see. Love your portrayal of Mags, too. Even though her part in the book wasn't very long, she was an important character.
Lovely work as usual!
enteringmymind Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This was such a sad moment but then this is why we love Finnick so much!!!:)
