Could you talk about your love for Finnick?
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OKAY i honestly could talk about finnick aLL FUCKING DAY like can u believe this child so like small tiny baby 14 yr old finnick getting reaped and no one thinking he has a chance in hell bc he is so young buT THEN HE DOES WIN THE YOUNGEST VICTOR IN HISTORY and so he manages to get out of that situation but then small tiny darling 14 yr old finnick being told by president snow to be a prostitute basically and he says no and then his family dies. oh my fo i am crying while writing this can u just imagine 14 yr old finnick odair who likes the sea and fishing and his family and now theyre all DEAD and to protect mags he has to do what snow says oh my god hE IS FOURTEEN YEARS OLD AND HE GETS SOLD INTO SEX SLAVERY I HONESTLY WANT TO DIE EVERY TIME I REMEMBER THIS HAPPENED TO HIM OH MY FUCKING GOD.
i have no idea how he survived. like he is the strongest person ever when you think about it like how could this have happened how did he not kill himself or something. i love finnick s oo m cuh. he like develops this ‘capitol persona’ thats like this flirty cocky shade of himself and he uses it to protect himself and not let people close to knowing the //real// finnick odair aka thE BIGGEST SOFTY INT HE WORLD AND ALSO A GIANT MENTALLY UNSTABLE DORK MONSTER. and he can only be this //real// finnick when hes away from the capitol and with mags in their victor house by the sea GO D .
so then like years of his life pass in this fashion like mentoring tributes who die every year and being forced to sleep with people and gettign secrets for them bc finnick odair is a conniving bastard. and thennnnnnnn annie comes along. personal headcanon is that they meet when she was reaped and not before but like either way sUDDENLY FINNICK ODAIR HAS ANOTHER PERSON HE NEEDS TO PROTECT EXCEPT NOW SHES GOING INTO THE GAMES OF DEATH AND THERE IS NO WAY THAT SHE COULD SURVIVE. except she doES and headcanon a lot of it is because finnick used every single one of his connections and capitol lovers to send her stuff and keep her safe. and she survives but shes “”“mad”“” now but finnick doesnt care because secretly he thinks that hes mad too and he and mags take care of annie and they live right next door to each other in district 4’s victors village.
anD SO THATS FINNICK ODAIRS ENTIRE WORLD IS ANNIE CRESTA AND MAGS AND KEEPING THEM SAFE NO MATTER WHAT AND THEY LIVE HAPPILY FOR A COUPLE YEARS AND THEN EVERYTHING GOES TO SHIT THANKS TO KATNISS EVERDEEN (jk ily katniss its not ur fault). suddenly finnick and annie have to go bACK into the arena but finnck and mags know that annie wouldnt survive it a second time so they go in together. and him and mags plan to keep katniss and peeta safe for the rebellion but everything fucks up basically and mags dies and annie is captured. i //cannot// stress this enough finnick odair has 2 people he cares about in this world and he goes to impossible lengths to keep them safe. now one of them is DEAD and the other one is in the hands of the capitol and finnick knows exactly what they could be doing to her because hes been at the mercy of the capitol all of his adult life.
basically there is nothing left for finnick odair to live for but he keeps living anyway and he pushes thru because he is the sTRONGEST AND BRAVEST AND KINDEST AND MOST PURE MAN EVER TO HAVE EXISTED. and him and annie are reunited and things are still not okay but now that theyre TOGETHER theyre okay enough oh y god i cried writi ng tthat sentence okay
an d thne of course because things are good in finnicks life everything has to fuck up because nothing can be good in finncks life he has to go and DIE. he DIES. anD HE WAS THE BEST OF THEM. HE KNEW THE POWER AND DESTRUCTIVENESS OF THE CAPITOL AND SNOW AND STILL HE WAS BRAVE ENOUGH TO FIGHT BACK EVEN THOUGH IT ALMOST COST HIM EVERYTHING. AND THEN IT DID BECAUSE HE DIED AND HE LEFT ANNIE ALL ALONE. HE’LL NEVER GET TO MEET HIS SON. HE’LL NEVER GET TO GO BACK TO DISTRICT FOUR WITH ANNIE AND //HIS SON//. ALL HES KNOWN IN HIS LIFE IS PAIN AND SACRIFICE AND DEATH AND JUST WHEN THINGS GET BETTER HE IS TOO DEAD TO SEE THEM. HE IS THE BEST OF THEM AND HE DIED FOR NOTHIGN. I HOPE THEY NEVER FORGET WHAT HE LOST AND WHAT HE DID. THERE SHOULD BE FUCKING MONUMENTS TO FINNICK ODAIR AND HIS BRAVERY AND HIS SACRIFICE. I WOULD SELL MY SOUL IF IT MEANT THAT FINNICK GOT TO LIVE HAPPY IWTH HIS WIFE AND SON BY THE SEA. HE DESERVES THAT. AND HE’LL NEVER GET IT.
EXCUSE ME I HAVE TO GO SCREAM INTO A PILLOW NOW
