divergent’s book-to-movie scenes → Four touching Tris’s stomach.Suddenly he presses a hand to my stomach.

If you can’t, I will not allow you to continue initiation.”

I chose Dauntless not because they are perfect, but because they are alive, they are free.
"No one ever thought the small girl from Abnegation could ever be cruel"
A new place, a new name. I can be remade here.
"Tris," I say firmly.
Being up this high.. It doesn't scare you at all?
