HOLY FUCKING SHIT RUN DADDY RUN IS 100000000X MORE PAINFUL WHEN YOU IMAGINE FINNICKS CHILD SINGING IT FUCK
is like the equivalent of Finnick looking in the mirror and saying, “I love myself.”
so another name has come up for Finnick and his name seems to be creating a lot of buzz
and that name is
aka this gorgeous jerk:
Apparently this happened like three days ago?!? Where was I!? How come I haven’t heard anything about this in the fandom until today?!
As much as I love me some Garrett Hedlund I think this guy sounds awesome. I love that he’s biracial too!
What do you guys think?
i can’t even deal with your horrible life
you fucking dick
Lionsgate made all the actors and actresses starring in The Hunger Games keep quiet until they released an official statement.
Why would it be any different for Catching Fire.
In all honesty that’s really tacky of that guy to do that and I doubt he was picked.
He probably auditioned and didn’t get a callback or something and is pissed and decided to say that to get attention.
I LOVE Finnick and Annie. They’re my OTP.
But I don’t like the ship name Odesta because it makes me think of incesta and molesta.
I think the reason I like Garrett Hedlund so much for Finnick Odair is because when I think of bronze hair I think of his hair.
I really honestly never think of hair as being bronze, but with his I do.
and those sea-green eyes.
I’ve finally decided that I’m emotionally ready to start reading Fannie fanfiction.
So followers, lay some good ones on me please. Any and all ratings just as long as the fic is kickbutt!
Please halp. I know you guys have awesome taste.
Usually when people die it’s not because they deserved it, but rather, it just happened.
I think talking about the concept of whether or not death is deserved in The Hunger Games trilogy is really redundant and silly.
GAH. I don’t think I could do it.
Cinna is a hero.
Finnick is a hero.
Gale is a hero to the people of District 12, whom he saved from being obliterated.
Peeta is a hero to the people of District 13, whom he saved from being obliterated.
Darius is even a hero.
Haymitch is a hero.
But Gale isn’t a hero in the first book. That’s for sure. And Peeta isn’t either really.
Well, Gale is a hero to Katniss’ family, I guess.
Katniss and Rue are the heroines of The Hunger Games.
There doesn’t have to be a hero in the first book.
I love Annie Cresta. I understand that one of the ONLY canon lines of her is “a poor, mad girl back home.”
But let’s be real for a second:
Annie Cresta was SO MUCH MORE than a “poor, mad girl.” Okay, let’s just list this straight up:
- Raised in a Career District — whether or not she was a Career herself, this would have totally made an impact on how she was raised AND how she ended up in the Arena, because either she Volunteered OR, for some reason, no one Volunteered for her… and which one is really worse?
- Reaped into the Hunger Games
- Saw her District partner/ally decapitated
- Watched all of the other Tributes drown, which had to be especially traumatic for someone from D4 with its ocean and ocean culture
- Had to tread water for days
- Finds out significant other is a trafficked slave
- Loses family (ostensibly, since Johanna tells Katniss that Annie/Finnick/Mags are each others’ only family by CF)
- Reaped AGAIN for the Quarter Quell (as punishment for ties to Rebels)
- Loses the only two people she has in the world to the Quell and knows they will probably both die
- Watches Mags die on television
- Is kidnapped by the Capitol
- IS TORTURED FOR INFORMATION, yeah, right alongside Peeta and Johanna and Enobaria. People forget that Annie was there, too. And that when she was delivered to D13? She was naked. The others weren’t. She’s the significant other of Finnick Odair and whoever was detaining them in the Capitol kept Annie naked. Just think about the implications of that for a minute.
- Loses every single other person she may have known to the Purge of Victors.
- WHEN RESCUED, IS THE STRONGEST ONE LEFT OF THE TORTURED VICTORS. Johanna and Peeta are deeply traumatized — obviously — after their torture. Annie is strong and held herself together and did so because she knew that Finnick needed it. She took care of him there.
- Even after losing the last person she had (before discovering her pregnancy), STILL upheld her moral ideals and voted against a Capitol Hunger Games, even though arguably, she had lost the most.
Annie Cresta is not just a poor, mad girl back home. She is a “mad” girl; I’m not arguing that she’s not. I think she was likely “mad” long before her Games, as well, which makes her story that much more horrible as a part of the war story that is THG — because war doesn’t care about its civilians and its victims, and neither do the Games.
But Annie is not this little pitiable creature who exists to make FINNICK more tragic. She has her own story and it is more secret than Finnick’s, but that doesn’t make it smaller. Annie is the war widow, but she’s also a prisoner of war, she’s also a child gladiator, she’s also a veteran. People forget that Annie is a Victor. Whether she won with or without violence, she still survived.
Survival is an impressive, impressive battle story unto itself, and even though we don’t know much about how Annie did it… people give Johanna, whose original Games were also glossed over, so much more credit as a soldier. People remember Johanna’s toughness because “there’s no one left that she loved,” but in the end, there wasn’t anyone for Annie, either. And Annie had to go forward alone to have and raise a baby in a totally broken, third-world country, and in a District that used to train its children to be killers. That is the kind of world that Annie knew going into having that baby, and we know that despite that, she still had the idealism and optimism to understand that it was wrong.
Annie is so much more badass and amazing than people give her credit for, even/especially if she was disabled before her Games. I love the sweeping romanticism of Finnick/Annie, but there’s more to it than the brave hero and his poor, mad girl waiting for him.
When Finnick was in the Quarter Quell, being tortured by the Capitol, Annie was the poor, mad girl back home.
When Annie was naked in a cell in the Capitol, being tortured for information she didn’t have, Finnick was the poor, mad boy back “home” in D13.
They’re equals. And they’re both amazing.
This is why I regard The Hunger Games Trilogy as one of the best stories told. Right up there with the greats. But that’s just me. The way the story grabs you and sort of smacks you in the face with its tense realism. It’s real, yet cinematic. Not necessarily happy, and yet, gives you a kind of hopeful happiness.
«You be nice to her, Finnick. Or I might try and take her away from you.»
«Oh, Peeta. Don’t make me sorry I restarted your heart.»
