The Tally of the Victors’ Vote

Was it like this then? Seventy-five years or so ago? Did a group of people sit around and cast their votes on initiating the Hunger Games? Was there dissent? Did someone make a case for mercy that was beaten down by the calls for the deaths of the districts’ children? The scent of Snow’s rose curls up into my nose, down into my throat, squeezing it tight with despair. All those people I loved, dead, and we are discussing the next Hunger Games in an attempt to avoid wasting life. Nothing has changed. Nothing will ever change now.

In the Hunger Games
  • Gryffindor: rushes straight into the blood bath because they're certain they'll survive it, finds smallest tribute and protects them until their last breath because it's the honorable thing to do
  • Ravenclaw: doesn't have an alliance because statistically they always go wrong, finds creative ways to kill other tributes without actually engaging in combat, thus increasing their chances of survival
  • Slytherin: plays a very strong social game, creates an alliance of strong tributes, gains their trust, then kills them in the end. Uses other tributes to do the dangerous work
  • Hufflepuff: forms a strong alliance, tries to win by outlasting the other tributes instead of killing them. Doesn't engage in physical combat unless they or one of their alliance is threatened

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

Author killing patterns
  • Cassandra Clare: I'll kill off the bad characters and then the main boy character once or twice
  • Veronica Roth: I will kill off the side characters and then the main character in the last book because I'm a great person
  • Suzanne Collins: I'll wait until the second and third books to hurt everyone that's important
  • JK Rowling: everyone. They are all dead.
  • John Green: same they're all dead now
