Love this.

(Also, as an aside: I found out from the stunt coordinators and the actors on the Divergent set that even expert knife-throwers can’t actually achieve the kind of accuracy that Four develops in a few short years, making knife-throwing a relatively useless skill for the Dauntless to try to develop [and making Four some kind of knife-throwing mutant]. It’s interesting what you learn after writing a book— and what it teaches you about how you should approach research, as an author! ANYWAY, Margot and Aubry are totally Dauntless, no matter what they say.)

DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE DAUNTLESS?
