When I was a teenager, The Hunger Games taught me that two truths can exist at once. I can both be on Team Peeta (like anyone who read the books!) while thirsting hard for Liam Hemsworth. (Still haven’t gotten over casting 5’5” Josh Hutcherson as the tall, stocky baker’s boy.)
Now, as a grown woman, I’m faced with another complicated truth because of this dystopian franchise: Young Coriolanus Snow is hot as fuck. Do I know he’s going to grow up to become a tyrannical president who willingly participates in sending children to fight to death? Yes. Is his buzz cut kinda cute? Also yes. I contain multitudes!!!
I’ll admit that I’m sacrificing my morals for a villain who looks like emo Malfoy. Still, while I’m not sure if my middle school self will ever forgive my depravity, at least it’s a guilt I carry with many others for many reasons.

I mean, he’s giving off Eminem energy but I’m not mad about it.

Sure, his blue eyes are cold and full of hate by the end of the movie, but I would still swim in them.
I CAN FIX HIM!
