Gale Week, Day 6: Family
"At fourteen, Gale, the eldest of the kids, became the main supporter of the family. He was already signed up for tesserae, which entitled them to a meager supply of grain and oil in exchange for his entering his name extra times in the drawing to become a tribute. On top of that, even back then, he was a skilled trapper. But it wasn’t enough to keep a family of five without Hazelle working her fingers to the bone on that washboard… But they are determined, Hazelle and Gale, that the other boys, twelve-year-old Rory and ten-year-old Vick, and the baby, four-year-old Posy, will never have to sign up for tesserae."

NO, like you don’ understand how much I love the Hawthornes and how much I want a book/movie/whatever about them. Like, I was so angry at the end of Mockingjay, I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted to know how everything worked for them. I wanted to know more about them and their lifes and… I just wanted them to be happy
