The Hunger Games Cato and Glimmer? | Yahoo Answers
So much so that the movie shows a couple of tributes from other Districts Then, on the very next shot, we see Cato, Marvel, and Glimmer. I heard that the girl that played Glimmer was on Dinsey Channel, I find that werid. Anyway, the book didn't really explian the connection between Cato and. The District 6 male pushes her to the ground, making Glimmer scream. He is about to kill her when Cato pushes him away. Glimmer grabs a sword and watches.
Slimy is the one word I would use to describe most of them. Thom spends the next few minutes retelling us some of his workmates epic failures with women. It seems there are people who are even worse at dating than me.
The conversation takes my mind off the wedding and makes me feel less anxious. We soon arrive at the hotel and drop Madge and Thom off. As a member of Glimmer's direct family, Peeta and I get the privilege of staying at my uncle's grand mansion.
Madge and Thom will make their way there later for the cocktail reception. From the hotel it is only 5 minutes to the house and we arrive there before am I am prepared for it.
- The Hunger Games Cato and Glimmer?
The house used to be my maternal grandfather's. He became very rich after setting up a pharmaceutical company after the war. He supplies many of the major hospitals in the surrounding states.
As a result of his wealth he built this massive house outside the main town. The house is an impressive building made of red brick with marble columns that line either side of the grand entrance. There is a massive wooden veranda that encircles the whole house. Well kept flower beds give the house pops of colour. It is the size of a small palace and includes 15 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a home cinema and gym.
It is easy to get lost in there. The surrounding grounds are equally impressive with areas of neatly trimmed grass and vibrant flower beds.
To the rear of the house is a large private wooded area that my grandfather used for hunting. All this money meant that my mom and uncle had a very privileged upbringing. My uncle Haymitch married into another well off family and he now runs the pharmaceutical business. Not that he enjoys the job too much. He spends more time drinking than anything else. When my grandfather died 5 years ago the house naturally passed down to my uncle.
He complains about it being too big and difficult to manage but he loved my grandfather too much to ever sell it. On the other hand my mom had a slightly rockier relationship with my grandfather. My dad used to pouch on his land and Grandfather was not happy when Mom fell in love with a poor man from the Seam. It is the worse part of town with high unemployment and crime. However this did not faze my mom, seeing past my dad's rough upbringing and she went against my grandfathers wishes to date him.
However Dad has a deep knowledge of plants and discovered a plant that could be used in antiseptics which ended up making the company a lot of money. Everything else was forgotten after that and my dad has been a welcomed addition to the family ever since.
As a result Prim and I have always had the best of everything. And while this has made Glimmer spoilt and materialistic, Prim and I couldn't care less. Our dad made sure that we always valued money and I can still remember the giddy pride I felt when I got my first pay cheque and bought something with the money I had earned entirely on my own.
As we pull up there is a valet waiting and he takes my keys to park the car. At the bottom of the steps there is a young man waiting to take our bags. Aunt Effie has ensured that the house will run like a expensive hotel this week. Peeta interlinks his fingers through mine as we ascend the stairs following the man carrying our bags.
I accept his hand readily. I no longer try to pull away from his touch. He has to be kidding. I may have improved but I am still bad.
He just lets out a small chuckle. No one will even notice us," he tries to reassure me. I shrug my shoulders but know that won't be the case. My family are nosy and everyone will be itching to know how I finally got myself a boyfriend.
The young man takes us to our room and puts down our bags. I give him a tip and then turn to survey the room. It is the room I always stayed in when I was a kid. I had a choice in the decoration and as a result it is still the same earthy green shade I had back them.
I chose it because it reminded me of my favourite place; the woods you can see out the window. Peeta is also looking around the room and he eyes stop on the large king sized bed.
It is the only bed in the room. He's been sleeping on our couch for 6 weeks now. It can't have been good for his back. We are not 21 anymore. The bed is big enough for the both of us," I reply.
Peeta raises his eyebrows at my comment. You don't have to worry about me jumping you. You are not that attractive," I joke. But I have to warn you I snore," he agrees. I smile and shake my head as I begin to unpack some of the essentials. We have arrived later than most of the other guests. I had to hand in a report at work this morning and wasn't going to leave until it had been done.
This means everyone else is already getting drunk at the reception downstairs. Peeta and I change into more suitable attire. I pull on a red sleeveless dress that Madge made me buy while Peeta puts on a crisp white shirt and navy jacket and tie.
The navy makes his blue eyes pop. I think navy is becoming my favourite colour that he wears. After I sweep a dash of mascara over my eyelashes we are ready to join the party.
On our way down to the main reception room we come across my uncle Haymitch hiding in the hallway nursing a glass of some sort of spirit. Aunt Effie has clearly made him dress up for the evening and has managed to get him into a suit and bow tie.
She's even managed to tame his greying, muddy blonde mop on the top of his head and taken a razor to his face. He looks up from his drink and scowls at me. Both Peeta and I laugh. Uncle Haymitch has never been comfortable with my grandfather's money and would quite happily live by simpler means.
However his wife is exuberant and over the top and loves throwing parties like this.

I highly suspect it is events like this that causes him to drink so much. I have always liked Uncle Haymitch.
He was one of the few people who championed my dad when he first started dating my mom. I have always respected him for that. And we are more similar than I would probably like to admit. We are both a bit sullen and grumpy but both of us loyal and hard working. Haymitch straightens up against the wall as we approach. You are about as charming as a dead slug!
Peeta doesn't miss a beat before jumping to my defence. It's captivating and no one can accuse her not being loyal and there for the people she loves," he says pulling me into his side and kissing the top of my head.

I remember to smile at his words. He is so reliably good at this and has, as always, managed to pick the right thing to say. I only wish I found it as easy.
Haymitch shrugs his shoulders and takes another slurp of his drink. You've successful pulled the wool over this one's eyes. He hasn't realised you're a workaholic bore. Don't let this one go," he says.
I am sure Aunt Effie has plenty of people she wants you to engage in small talk with," I reply. I grab his arm and march him back to the main reception room. I know how much he hates mingling. Peeta follows smirking behind me. As I expected Effie is on him immediately demanding to know where he has been and that Claudius Templesmith has been waiting to talk to him. He gives me an angry glare as he is dragged off and I smirk back at him. However I don't get to savour my victory for long as Glimmer is on Peeta and I in a flash.
She then walks inside to look for supplies, like the bow waiting for her outside. During the Games Cato and Glimmer attempt to attack Katniss while she's in a tree hiding.
The Careers discovered Peeta and allowed him in the pack so they could get to Katniss. During the first night, the Careers stumbled upon the District 8 female who made a fire during the middle of the night. Glimmer killed her, assisted by Peeta and Cato.
Cato and Glimmer?!!!
After the fire havoc, Glimmer and the other Career members were not as fast as before. Later, Glimmer along with the Career pack found Katniss and chased her up a tree. When Cato decided to go up the tree Katniss was trapped in, Glimmer offered him her bow and arrowsbut he refused as he could do better with his sword. When Cato fell out of the tree due to his weight, Glimmer decided to try, but she quickly realized that the branches wouldn't support her either.
It was obvious that she wasn't familiar with the bow and arrows, as she didn't hold the arrows straight and had a hard time knocking the arrow to the bowstring.
However, in the film, she seems to have slight experience with a bow and arrow. When she fires at Katniss and misses, Katniss teases her by grabbing the arrow and swinging it around to embarrass her for her lack of knowledge in the movie, Glimmer and Cato both shoot arrows at Katniss and miss, prompting Katniss to sneer, "Why don't you try throwing the sword?
Furious, Glimmer agrees with Peeta that the pack should wait for Katniss to come down on her own, as she won't be able to get away without them knowing, so they sleep under the tree, a decision which would ultimately lead to her death.
Death Glimmer being attacked by tracker jackers. Glimmer was killed by tracker jackers that Katniss, who was originally informed of the nest by Rue, sent down on the Career Tributes by cutting off the branch that held it.
Glimmer, CloveMarvel, Cato, the District 4 girl in the bookand Peeta were camping at the bottom of the tree where Katniss was hiding. Shocked at the sudden attack, everyone but Glimmer and the girl from District 4 escaped to the lake. Glimmer screamed hysterically for help, but no one came back for her. Because of her many stings, Glimmer soon collapsed and began twitching and moaning from the tracker jacker hallucinations, and the District 4 girl died later on.
Unfortunately for Glimmer, her death was not quick, and for several minutes after collapsing, her heart kept beating and she fell into a coma.
Glimmer after the tracker jackers' attack. When Katniss returns for the bow and arrows, she notes that she could not recognize Glimmer anymore, as the venom had bloated her body grotesquely, and her plum-sized stings were oozing green pus and were bursting. When she touched one of the pimple-like wounds on Glimmer's shoulder, it disintegrated in her hand. However, there is a chance that this did not happen as Katniss was experiencing hallucinations herself.
Katniss shielded Glimmer's body from being taken away by the hovercraft and desperately tried to take the bow and arrows from her, breaking many of her mutated, petrified fingers with a stone, finally getting her hand on Glimmer's shoulder blade, she pulls Glimmer onto her side to retrieve the quiver of arrows. In the film, there was no green pus, so this may mean that what Katniss saw in the book was a hallucination. Glimmer was placed 12th out of the 24 tributes, making it halfway.
Mutt Glimmer appeared once again towards the end of the Hunger Games to kill the remaining tributes as a mutt. She along with Marvel, Clove, FoxfaceRueThreshand the other 15 unnamed tributes all appeared as muttations from the Capitol, which were a combination of the fallen tribute's DNA and a wolf. She was the first mutt Katniss recognized as each had an attribute of the fallen tribute.
Glimmer's wolf form was lean with silky-blonde fur, shining emerald eyes which were unmistakably human-like, and the number "1" on its jeweled collar. The mutt's eyes tipped Katniss off that the muttations were the fallen tributes. Katniss killed Glimmer's mutt with an arrow through its throat when it tried to climb the Cornucopia. Later in the movie, Katniss is seen using the exact same rope yet again.
Given that these tools are very scarce inside the Games arena and that Katniss definitely left the rope behind while running from the fire, it is certainly odd that she was seen using it again later.
However, in Catching Fire, Buttercup is suddenly seen with orange stripes along its extension, which were definitely not there before. When director Francis Lawrence took over the franchise with Catching Fire, a cat that more closely resembled the description of Buttercup from Suzanne Collins' novels. While that attention to the books' detail is satisfying, it is still distracting for fans of the movies. In the universe of the movies, Buttercup suddenly changed completely.
There should have been some form of explanation as to why the cat suddenly had orange stripes rather than just being its usual black-and-white self. Then, in the very next shots, the wound — and the blood — is already gone. Just like the sudden hairstyle changes, this is yet another example of Hollywood trying to preserve the face of the star of a movie as much as possible, even going to the extent of ignoring a wound that was inflicted on her.
What is odd about that scene is that, after Katniss stops Peeta, she hugs him, and that hug is shown in two different ways.
First, Katniss embraces Peeta by putting her arms around his face. Before the Games begin, the Tributes are given scores based on their chances of winning, which helps the Capitol citizens to place bets on each tribute and make money. Despite the fact that these are quite impressive numbers for a girl who did not do anything impressive to earn them inside the Games, no further explanation is given as to why her chances of winning increased so dramatically all of a sudden.
