Um people, the possibility of Finnick and Johanna having a relationship before he met Annie is non-existent. Reason #1: Johanna was the victor of the 71st hunger games, while Annie was the victor of the 70th hunger games. That means Finnick met and fell in love with Annie before he even knew Johanna existed. Reason #2: There’s nothing in the books to suggest it. The only scenes they have together are in the arena in Catching Fire, but other than that, they have zero interactions with other. Which is surprising for two people who claim to be friends. Johanna was kidnapped and tortured by the Capitol and Finnick didn't say a single word to her or about her. He didn’t say that he missed her or that he was worried about her or even acknowledge her presence. He didn’t even visit her in the hospital. Reason #3: The books made it more than clear that Finnick remained faithful to Annie during their time together. The only time he was unfaithful was when he was forced to sleep with other people against his will. And reason #4 Jena Malone already confirmed that Finnick and Johanna were like brother and sister. Not lovers. And on top of that, given how much the movies have played up the romance angle of the books, if there was something going on between Finnick and Johanna, the author and filmmakers would have said so. But they haven’t. All Jena has said is that Finnick and Johanna are like brother and sister, and Sam has done nothing but gush over Annie Cresta.
So, before you start hating on Annie Cresta for why Finnick never fell for Johanna, how about you look at the facts first. Thank you.
This has been sitting in my inbox for a really long time, I apologize for not responding sooner! I was going to try and go through all the Finnick/Johanna fills for the ficathon, but I didn’t… so I’m just going to answer now.
in a way i ship johanna and finnick because god, he’s always been there for her, and they’ve been through a lot together, and she needs someone to love her because at least he has annie and he loves her back, she has no one left to love and no one left to love her.
Maybe Johanna was acting alone, knowing Finnick would side with her once her intentions were clear. Although it’s hard to guess what goes on between those two. I think of how he looked to her for confirmation before he’d agree to help set Beetee’s trap.There’s a much deeper alliance based on years of friendship and who knows what else.
