what she means:
finnick odair is viewed widely as a superficial character who was only self-obsessed and okay with being a killer, but really he survived the hunger games as the youngest ever winner, went through that much trauma and survived at 14 years old, grew up to fall in love with an emotionally damaged girl who had gone through what he had, yet she had turned out more externally damaged, grew close with a sweet old woman, was willing to protect her with his life and literally physically carried her on his back in the games, despite the risk to himself, stood with the rebellion against the Capitol even though he was their darling, publicly defied and spilled secrets about the president, married that same damaged girl he loved even in the middle of a war and had a child who he never got to meet, helped a psychologically damaged and unrecognizable Peeta and defended him, protected his friends and team against the lizard mutts, and actually begged for Katniss to throw a bomb down where he was, because he knew that it would save her and the rest of the team, even though he would die.
↳ “ Far below, I can just make out Finnick, struggling to hang on as three mutts tear at him. As one yanks back his head to take the death bite, something bizarre happens. It’s as if I’m Finnick, watching images of my life flash by. The mast of a boat, a silver parachute, Mags laughing, a pink sky, Beetee’s trident, Annie in her wedding dress, waves breaking over rocks. T h e n i t ’ s o v e r . ”
↳ THE HUNGER GAMES; Finnick Odair and Annie Cresta. [7/8]
“ And suddenly, it’s as if there’s no one in the world but these two, crashing through space to reach each other. They collide, enfold, lose their balance, and slam against a wall, where they stay. Clinging into one being. Indivisible. A pang of jealousy hits me. Not for either Finnick or Annie but for their certainty. No one seeing them could doubt their love. ”
“Finnick!” you whispered, he quickly turned weapon up which was an understandable reaction given where you were. “It’s just me” you said holding your hands up. “What do you want?” he asked, brows furrowed, unsure. “To team up. Having alliances you can trust can’t go a miss in all this mess” you said slowly lowering your hands. “I have certain skills you don’t and vice versa, we could work well together if we build trust. What do you say?” you asked reaching your hand out as a peace offering. Finnick lowered his weapon as he exhaled lightly before reaching his hand out to grasp yours as you both shook on it.
