capitol crazy

Hunger Games characters in Hogwarts oh yeah! (idk just felt like sorting some characters and then I drew this and…yeah)

Not really a story, although I’m thinking about some ideas, just I don’t have anything yet lol

Some of these guys were a real challenge to sort, hopefully I did decently xD You obviously are completely free to disagree with me, just don’t scream at me that I’m wrong cause really, there’s no way to tell! …Unless you’re J.K Rowling… in which case…my art is not worthy of your presence! D:

I gave Effie pink-ish hair!! :D I thought it’ll be cool if she was a Metamorphmagus so she could change her appearance into crazy capitol-ish stuff without the wigs and whatnot….but then I thought she would look too much like Tonks with the pink hair and all…I’m not so sure about that anymore xD

Whats crazy..capitol point where i stayed when i first hit the city….mistaken jadonte house for a dope house..same situation happened when i got broke in…but somebody family died. R.ip jadonte thompson

“Convince me.”

“I know. I will. I’ll convince everyone in the districts I wasn’t defying the Capitol, that I was crazy with love,” I say.

President Snow rises and dabs his puffy lips with a napkin. “Aim higher in case you fall short.”

“What do you mean? How can I aim higher?” I ask.

“Convince me,” he says.

Things That Are Not True About Annie Cresta:

  • She cries constantly. Okay, how many times did she cry in the book once? When she was reaped for the Quarter Quell? Which is understandable and hardly a sign that she’s “broken”?
  • She speaks in short child-like sentences. Commonly used in fic, this one. “Going back?” “Yes, Annie. I have to go back.” “Don’t want.” “I know. Neither do I.” (I cannot stress enough how creepy it is that people seem to like this kind of dynamic, even though it isn’t present in the books. It even appears in Odesta smut.) Annie is repeatedly shown to be well-spoken and intelligent, and communicates in full sentences for fuck’s sake.
  • She makes vague, semi-poetic, “profound” observations about people, especially their emotional/mental state. Really, there’s no difference between the way she and Finnick/Peeta/Katniss speak. This is that weird thing people do where they romanticize mental illness as giving you some magic insight into the world. 
  • She can barely function on a daily basis without Finnick there to hold her hand. There is literally nothing in the text to support this. Just more fandom grossness.
  • She gets “hysterical.” (Outside of being understandably upset at being reaped for the Quarter Quell there is not mention of Annie getting even close to “hysterical.”)
  • She was a defenseless little lamb being sent to slaughter when she was reaped. Oh God, see Things That Are True of Annie Cresta at the bottom.

Things That Are Possibly True About Annie Cresta (But Probably Aren’t):

  • She had to be taught how to swim by Finnick. Could she really have become such a good swimmer in such a short period of time? Would a daughter of 4 really not know how to swim when it’s said that the children of 4 learn to swim before they learn to walk?
  • She and Finnick were involved before the 70th Games. If this were true, it would make Annie’s reaping highly suspicious. I can’t believe that wouldn’t have come up in the books.

Things That Are Possibly Not True of Annie Cresta (But Probably Are):

  • She volunteered. She was a Career tribute, after all. But it’s entirely possible that she was chosen and because she was a Career and at least 17 years old no one saw a reason to volunteer in her place.

Things That Are True of Annie Cresta:

  • She is from a Career district and is a Career victor. She is described in the final book, I believe, as one of only two surviving Career victors (Enobaria being the other).
  • As a Career, she would have had training before becoming a tribute. Perhaps not on par with a tribute from 1 or 2, but certainly more than Katniss, Peeta, or Finnick (as she was older when she was reaped).
  • She did not fall apart when Finnick was not there. Whereas Finnick did fall apart when Annie wasn’t there. This isn’t a slam on Finnick. I don’t consider that a weakness. I think it really gets under people’s skin that a guy like Finnick - very physically capable, youngest winner ever, “flirtatious rogue” - would actually be the more emotionally expressive of the two. People are much more comfortable with the idea of Annie sobbing, clinging to Finnick while he whispers soothingly in her ear.
  • She has PTSD and is sometimes triggered. She either retreats into her mind, covers her ears with her hands, or occasionally laughs inexplicably. That is it. She is portrayed by Capitol propaganda as “crazy”/“mad” and that is how most people think of her at first (Katniss, Peeta). In fact, she is no more traumatized than most victors it’s just that her trauma manifests in more blatant ways. The others tend to try to hide it or self-medicate; she’s a very uncomfortable mirror/reminder, I expect.
