THE HUNGER GAMES VICTOR STORIES
stupidlittletuftybeard suggested — since Joad sounds a lot like Finnick, I humbly request you choose a female celebrity as a victor who you think would also gain sponsors on her beauty alone. (AKA MILA KUNIS.)
Marian. District 12. 30th Annual Hunger Games.
The first (and, up until Haymitch won the second Quarter Quell, only) victor to come from District 12, Marian — a beautiful daughter from a dirt-poor Seam mining family — was a dark horse contestant. Her score during training was average, but she really won the audience over during her interview, and once she got into the arena, she became an unexpected fan favorite. She had no trouble attracting sponsors who sent her everything from food, to medicine for the arm wound she sustained in the bloodbath, to the weapon that eventually helped her win the game, a slingshot, with which she blinded most of her competitors using acorns and sharp pebbles she found in the arena. (Despite the fact that the eye wounds didn’t kill more than one of them directly, she knew blind people wouldn’t last too long in a death match.) After the Games, she was brought to the Capitol, where Snow’s predecessor, President Mattias Bream, often took her to parties and rented her out to the other elites in his cabinet, including a young Snow, who was just beginning his political ascent at the time. She mentored Haymitch, Maysilee, and the other two District 12 tributes in the Second Quarter Quell, but killed herself shortly after Haymitch’s victory, secure in knowing that there was a successor to her post and she would no longer have to escort doomed kids to the Games every year.
