Christmas Blogtacular Day Five

       Now that school is quickly coming  to a close for winter break, I've wondered what school would be like in the Hunger Games, and if they got off for Christmas. 
      I think that they would not get a break for Christmas, from what I remember, Katniss never discusses any major holidays celebrated. However, I still feel like writing about school in the Hunger Games. In nearly all of the districts, school seems to be treated normally, if anything even more boring and less educational than our current system.  Tomorrow, or possibly day seven I will be writing from two different points of views in short stories. If you'd like you can write a prompt and put it on our community.
Prompts:
1.  Write from the point of view of a teenager in the Capitol going to school.
2. Write from the point of view of a career at training school. 
Thanks for reading!

Christmas Blogtacular Day Four

Sorry these are late! I asked Jonah to blog, but alas, he did not. Also we had a false alarm about the flu coming back, so that was um, scary to say the least. We've had a major bug going around my school. (My largest class was fifteen kids out of like 25) So today we are going to do top five favorite quotes from Catching Fire. Let's begin!

  1. You know, you could live a thousand lifetimes and not deserve him
  2. At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead.The hard thing is finding the courage to do it. 
  3. Aim higher in case you fall short.
  4. I guess this is a bad time to mention I hung a dummy and painted Seneca Crane's name on it..
  5. So that's who Finnick loves, I think. Not his string of fancy lovers in the Capitol. But a poor, mad girl back home.
Thanks for reading! Don't forget to leave the reindeer food too!
Hugs and virtual cookies for Santa,
Katniss Stone

Christmas Blogtacular Day Three

Today's blogtacular blog is going to be favorite quotes from Mockingjay. (Catching Fire and Hunger Games in the next few days) This was going to be day three in the countdown to Mockingjay, so why not make it up now? BTW: These are in no particular order.



  1. It takes ten times longer to put yourself together than it does to fall apart. ~Finnick



  2. Well, don't expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear. ~Katniss
  3. Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us! ~Katniss
  4. Some walks you have to take alone.
  5. There are much worse games to play.
  6. “Are you, are you coming to the tree?
    Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me.
    Strange things did happen here.
    No stranger would let it be if we met up
    At midnight in the hanging tree.” 
  7. Technically, I am unarmed. But no one should ever underestimate the harm that fingernails can do. Especially if the target is unprepared.
  8. Closing my eyes doesn't help. Fire burns brighter in the darkness
  9. Fire beats roses again.
  10. If he wants me broken, then I will have to be whole.
So that's it! Thanks for reading!
And may the presents be many under your tree (see what I did there?),

Christmas Blogtacular Day One

       Okay, minor detail before we begin: I may have forgotten to tell Jonah about the 12 day countdown. And also the fact that today is the beginning of it. So depending on where you live, this may be on the 11th day not 12th until Christmas. 

      Anyways, today marks 12 days until Christmas, and I promised you a blogtacular countdown where I don't get the flu and am unable to post. So here it is! Today's blog post is about a topic that's a tiny bit dated, but I wanted to post about it all the same. Today's post is about The Hanging Tree song.
      Now, The Hanging Tree song in the Mockingjay movie was the best ever. I was so emotional, and each time I listen to the song it moves me and makes me feel empowered. Here's the song if you haven't heard it:



      Just... fantastic isn't it? Now, if I were to tell you that this had a radio edit, what would you expect? Let me tell you what I expected and see if our expectations meet: The same song, maybe a little remixed, with some piano or drum in the background. This, however is what I did not expect:



       It starts off with the track sped up a bit. Okay, you're thinking, it's not bad. WAIT WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW THIS IS NOT THE HANGING TREE! This sounds like a song you would hear at a club or a cheesy pop song that is way over played. NO. I don't want this as a song. NO.  I'm actually a little bit impressed by the way the ending is cut, but I still don't like this as a song.
      I think you've kind of got my opinion by now: this song ruins the actual song. Now, I actually have found that some people think it's better, so if that's your opinion, then, I guess I'll have to live with it; but here's why I feel this way:
       I think The Hanging Tree is not popular because it is catchy. Yes, that may factor into its popularity a little bit, but mostly I think The Hanging Tree is popular because it is empowering. It inspires people to take down the capitol and fight for their opinions. I mean in the book it's a song Katniss' father used to sing before she realized it's a song about a dead man asking his lover to join him, for goodness sake! To quote Hypable:
 This song is not popular because people are dying to get their groove on to it at Club Catniss. It’s not intended for when you’re in the car on the way to work, either.
 This song is intended to inspire and empower, if you want it to mean anything outside of the movie. Do you agree that the remake it worse, or do you think the remake makes it ten times better? Tell us in the comments!

And may the gifts be many under your tree,
Katniss Stone
(P.S. Shouldn't Rudolph be glad he wasn't asked to join the reindeer Hunger Games?)

Christmas Blogtacular Day Two

         Today's post is going to be my favorite works from fans. This includes fanfiction, fanart, fan videos, et cetera. Let's begin!

Srsly tho

       I'm going to be brutally honest here; this blog sucks. I know it, you know it. When I first started the blog I had more time to think of creative ideas, and way less news that I should be sharing. In fact, in my stats, all of my most popular posts are from 2012. Let's be honest, when a fifth grader starts a blog, they can keep up because they have little homework, no relationships, and very simple schedules. Well, when that fifth grader, a few years later as a seventh grader tries to keep up with that blog along with the help of her "friend-ish" person, there will be conflicts. For example, being in pre-algebra and having four hours of homework each night, or having a girlfriend. Jonah and I are very busy. Jonah has another blog, and his YouTube reputation to upkeep, and I have four hours of homework each night, along with two other blogs, a writing career, and social media to keep up with, With all that we both have, being able to post and livestream is incredibly hard. Especially when Jonah doesn't have a microphone or webcam yet.
        Now this is the part where you come in, my dear reader. You see, this may be your first post, in which case, sorry for wasting your time, you may proceed now, or this may be a return post. If you are here for the latter, then this applies to you. Our readers are very important. They know what they want, and some might even wish to post on this blog. Well, if you are skilled in writing, communicating, or even being used to bounce ideas off of, then you can apply. Please go to the apply now! tab on the blog. Once you are done, it will send an email to us and let us know to check it. I can promise you that there is an 93.7% chance you will be chosen.

      Thanks for reading; And may the odds be ever in your favor

Apologies

Guys, I really am sorry that we haven't done our countdown. As Jonah said earlier in his horribly grammared post, I have the flu. Instead of completely forgetting about those posts however we will try to do them in the next few days.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Katniss Stone
(Who finally brushed her hair after 4 days)

Update: My Dad decided I could see Mockingjay at 11:30 since I hadn't run a fever in 48 hours and it was FANTASTIC. BEST HUNGER GAMES YET!!! Just, FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELS.

Thank You So Much!!!!!

Oh. My. Gosh. I just looked at how many people have read this blog, and it is over 9,000!!!! Even now as I write this post I can see that there are 10 people on the blog at the moment! I've felt like doing this for a while, but now I guess I kind of have a reason. May I present you with....the ultimate history of The Hunger Games Rule blog.


In 2012 I started The Hunger Games Rule (originally entitled The Hunger Games Rules!) after finishing The Hunger Games and falling in love. After creating the blog I made pages for all of the original tributes, which were deleted after I finished Catching Fire and realized there was another Hunger Games book.  Back then I had a monthly contest with HG points. (which I don't remember ever using or anybody participating in aside from a few of my friends. I did a lot of posts with just pictures in 2012 and also song parodies. (which I still do) Towards the end of 2012 I started having a few people work on my blog. Two people (both friends from my school) stepped up and joined the blog. The only one that is still here today is Jonah. In 2013 I feel like the blog grew a lot.  Jonah began his Minecraft Hunger Games, Jonah and I started livestreaming, and my writing style became a bit more like it is now. And then we come to 2014. In 2014 we began our Social Medias. (Which also started the current stat war. #jonahhasnostats) Finally, in 2014 our blog reader EXPANDED big time. So thanks for helping with that by reading this! Remember that at the bottom of the blog you can follow and contact us! On the side bar you can check out all the bloggers personal pages on this blog, use the contact page to email one of us, look at some pics (most of which are from 2012) or apply to become a blogger on this blog.

Love y'all,
Katniss Stone

Stats War!!!

It has come to my attention that Jonah has declared a stats war. What does that mean for you? That means you need to get on all social media sites and put the hashtag for whoever you are supporting. 

If you support....
Cupcakes Rule / Katniss Stone / Sara:
Social Media Sites She's On: 
Twitter: @Read_Write_Luv
Google+ : +Cupcakes Rule 
What to put: 
#JonahHasNoStats


Jonah:
Social Media Sites He's On:
Twitter: @JonahHatch
Google+ : +Jonah Hatch 
What to put:
#HungerGamesGirlHasNoStats


If either (or both) of these go viral, we will do something crazy. I mean like crazier than usual! I don't know what....yet.

Special Reward to All Followers!

Okay, so I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but I haven't had a reason. I still don't have a real important reason, but to celebrate this blog having almost 4,000 views I have decided to reveal my real name. Mostly so I can tell you to follow me on twitter to post #JonahHasNoStats. Seriously though, if this becomes viral I will do something extra special, like hurting my hair (YOU NO TOUCH MY HAIR!) special. So, my real name is...... Sara. Okay that's pretty lame, but still. Now you can follow me on twitter. My name is @Read_Write_Luv or you can click the bolded words to go to my page. Remember: #JonahHasNoStats!!!!

Mockingjay Part One: Scheduled Release Date Countdown!

So, every once-in-a-while I will post how many days are left until the scheduled release date of Mockingjay part 1! So... currently there are 255 days left! The app I am using is called Catching Fire Countdown (I also used it for Catching Fire) and is available on the Kindle Fire app-store. I don't know if it is available for apple though. 

Re: NEW BIG THING

So hi it's Katniss, and I'm here healthy at home. So I've been checking out some post stats from our blog, and I noticed something funny about the post stats...In the top ten posts, there are ten of mine and  zero of his.
