We Remember by Paakil We Remember by Paakil
:target: If you haven't read the Hunger Games/is about to start reading/have started but not finished I advice you not to read this description as it contains spoilers! :target:

__________________________________________________

So I read all the books, died inside and emotionally so many times :saddummy:

I made this as a tribute to those who died (a few of them), some of them fully drawn of my own image, others I read the description to draw. I divided them in groups, the quadrate including the Star Squad, the top row people part of the rebellion in the 75th Game, second row some of the people I mourn the most, and third row some tributes from the 74th Game that I mourn + Prim, who never participated in the Games
From top left:

1. Boggs - I didn't realize I liked him before he died. I wouldn't believe he really did die first, he was someone to rely on and someone who really seamed to care

2. Jackson - She was brave and sacrificed herself to help the rest of the team to survive

3. Finnick - I really didn't like him at first but I liked him sooner than Katniss did and he saved Peeta. I love his love story with Annie Cresta and I was so happy when they married. He's such a funny guy, and lovely in many ways. When he died that horrible way I screamed. I wouldn't believe it, it hurt so bad. He should have been spared, his life would've been so beautiful.

4. Chaff - He was one of Haymitches friends and he was good to Peeta and Katniss, a friendly and a brave man. I'm really sad that he was killed before the rebels were able to rescue him along with Katniss.

5. Female Morphling - She sacrificed herself for Peeta, being a part of the rebellion. She past away while Peeta was talking to her about paintings and the colors he painted with. It was quite beautiful, and very sad.

6. Wiress - She was very intelliget and observing, and a good friend of Beetee and Katniss.

7. Mags - She was Finnick's and Annie Cresta's mentor and she volonteered for the 75th Games in the place of Annie. Also she sacrificed herself for Peeta. She was very clever and kind and the thought of her being a former mentor is making it harder to process.

8. Blight - I never got to know him, but he was part of the rebellion and a friend of Johanna Mason.

9. Homes - Part of the Star Squad and was killed together with Finnick and Castor.

10. Leeg 1 - Part of the Star Squad. She stayed behind together with Jackson to buy the others some time to escape.

11. Leeg 2 - Also part of the Star Squad. She died on the fourth day by a trap.

12. Portia - She was executed along with Peeta's prep team on live television, which was really horrible. She was Cinna's partner and Peeta's stylist, and to me she was significant in many ways.

13. Cinna - My absolute favourite character. I love his kindness and his encouraging spirit. He is full of the hope you need in the Games, and I think he is the one I mourn the most. I was hoping he was still alive for so long, I missed him immediately after he was taken away.

14. Lavinia - The Avox Girl who Katniss and Gale saw in the woods. Her story is so sad, I'm terryfied thinking about it. She really deserved safety after all she'd been through.

15. Darius - I always liked him, and when Katniss and Peeta saw him in the Capitol, turned into an Avox, I just went blank for a while. It was horrible, and the way he was killed, together with Lavinia, was so horrible and humiliating. I've cried a lot.

16. Madge - Katniss considers her being her only friend in District 12 besides from Gale, and Madge was loyal to her, thinking of her as a friend as well.

17. Messalla - Cressida's partner and a part of the Star Squad, a rebel. His death is really upsetting, as the others can do nothing but watch.

18. Mitchell - Part of the Star Squad. Mitchell becomes known as the worst actor among the group which makes both me and the squad laugh. He was accidently pushed into a trap by Peeta, and despite Gale's and Leeg 1's attempt to help him, he is not spared. Peeta feels guilty and want the rest of the squad to leave him because of this but they refuse.

19. Castor - Pollux's brother, a cameraman in the Star Squad. I liked him and Pollux very much, so I was really sad when he was killed along with Homes and Finnick.

20. The Boy of District 3 - He was a tribute in the 74th Game and was killed by Cato because his mines blew up all their supplies. I never knew who he was, I just remember his death very clearly as I reacted strongly to it. The fear he must've felt when Cato was raging and he realized he was going to kill him, his desperate try to escape before Cato caught up with him and broke his neck.

21. Rue - Oh, my sweet, dear Rue. She was the female tribute from district 11 in the 74th Game and she was adorable. She and Katniss became friends in the arena and made an alliance even though they knew they had to break it sooner or later. They made a great team and together they were able to weaken the careers. But she was captured and killed by the boy from district 1, whom Katniss killed imediately. Before Rue died Katniss sang a song for her and put flowers around her. Rest in peace, Rue.

22. Thresh - The male tribute from district 11 in the 74th Game. He kind of rescued Katniss as a 'thanks for looking out for Rue', but he was later killed by Cato.

23. Foxface - Her death was not very sad, mostly unfortunate. She ate some poisonous berries. She was very smart, and it's always sad when a tribute doesn't come home to the family. All the tributes through all time should be mourned, they were sentnced to death or got severe traumas because of the cruelty of the Captol (president Snow)

24. Primrose - Katniss's little sister, the reason Katniss volunteered, which lead to uprisings and a rebellion. Despite all of Katniss's attempts, all her effort and all her struggle, Prim dies in the end. I thought it ruined the whole story, it all felt in vain. I guess that was what the author was aiming for, but this just sucked, kind of amature-like. It wasn't well composed. I'm really sad Prim died, but most of the time I just don't accept it because it wasn't bringing anything to the table, it was unnecessary and it made the book... just bad.
Prim should've lived. She reminds me of a little girl I know, she is brave and kind and she is so lovable

Some of the characters may look nothing like they're described, but you know how it is sometimes in books. You read a name or an action of a person and a face just pops up in you mind, so yo ignore the real looks of the character :dummy:

Anyway, I have never ever in my life cried so much as I did reading this trilogy. I strongly recommend it! Despite the sadness and sorrow the story brings, you like it, because it's provoking and there are so many lovely persons among all the bad.

Good representation of the Hunger Games who died in The Hunger Games.
I don't like to think about it, because that makes me cry - mainly Prim - and too many innocent people died - Madge, Laviana, Messalla, etc.

Foxface, Lavinia and Rue's deaths made me mentally disembowel President Snow with a spork. HE KILLED THE THREE BEST HUNGER GAMES CHARACTERS!!!

Thank you so much for making this. Even though it's just a book, I felt strongly connected to many of these characters as well, and mourned at least a little for all of their deaths, just like you did. I find it very touching how you memorialized all of them with their own little eulogy, even (and especially) the minor ones.

As a side note: my heart melted with joy when I saw you'd included the boy from District 3. He's my favorite character, but so few people remember him, it makes me sad. :( So when you did, I was very grateful.

You are very welcome! I'm glad you like it
I feel it's important to remember the minor characters too because they are so often forgotten. Thank you for appreciating that.

Oh, how could I forget him? I feel just like you, he is very forgotten, despite the fact that he was an important part of the Game that year (minor, but important) and as I wrote in the description I was horrified by the way he was killed.

I completely agree with everything you said, except that Prim's death made the book bad. I do see your point, but I think Suzanne was trying to get across the message that the good don't always survive. It reminds me of Harry Potter, in a way. The readers really connect with the characters, and then when they die, we mourn them. I think a book would be quite boring if all the good people survived and lived happily ever after. There would be no real connection with them, because life doesn't always end happily.

I was devastated by her death though, I remember reading the same part over and over again, trying to make sense of it. I was the same with Finnick and Cinna, my two favourite characters alongside Katniss and Peeta. When Finnick died, I put the book down and sat in my room for a long time. I think it's beautiful that we can connect to characters like that, even if it does hurt when they die.

Lovely picture though, I like how you portray each character, and I especially like the subtle difference between Leeg 1 and Leeg 2. Great job!

I just thought it was a bit too predictable (but still so unthinkable), but I also agree with you, I totally see your point. Guess I just freaked. I love the way Suzanne connected the reader to the characters, I got really attached to so many.

It's kind of wierd how a story, a fictional characters pain can hurt so bad, but it does. God, how I've cried

Thank you very much!

I cried so much while reading this book! Just like you I honestly didn't know how much I liked Boggs until he died. With Finnick I thought he was some manwhore, and during the Hunger Games when he told Mags that he couldn't, and finding out that was his Mentor. It broke my heart, and I knew he was good! Then when he died I had to stop reading because I was like what about Annie? Cinna my Cinna! When I was on the first few pages, and saw that they killed him I had to stop reading for a day! Other than Peeta he's been behind Katniss since day one! Yay another Darius fan! I'm really hoping they don't ex him out of the movie because I really liked him, and my heart stopped when he was an Avox!

Then they killed him...When I read they killed him I was like "How can you expect a person with no tongue to talk?!" The Capital people are so stuuupid! Sad when Madge and her family bodies were found. I felt so sad when Pullox lost Castor! Hmm when Foxface died I was like "Oh..." I felt bad for her, but it shows sometimes being to smart is not good. I agree with you with the Prim thing. When she died (This is just my opinion)I felt like everything Katniss went through was for nothing if she was just going to lose her anyway. Oh I almost forgot Rue! When she died I was like Sue how could you?! Though I was relieved that Katniss nor Peeta would have to kill her, and at least she didn't experience what Cato did. Even though Cato was a major ass he did not deserve what the Capitol did to him! I was so grossed out that Portia was executed along with Peeta's Prep Team on live tv! I bet Snow forced Peeta to watch! Plus all the other Stylist and the Tributes Prep Team were executed. The only Prep Team that lived were Katniss. D=

I really hate that Annie is left alone :(
They MUST have Darius in the movie, he is way too good to be left out
Exactly! It was so sick, the thing with the Capitol trying to force him to talk, 'cause he obviously couldn't, because of them!
Foxface is soo cool in the movie (if you haven't seen it, do it!)
Just like me! Everything Katniss did felt in vain (even though it wasn't if you look at the uprising she triggered)
Yeah, that public execution-thing is really gross. God how terrible!
Thank you so much for your opinions!

Oh no prob!

P.S After posting I realized something. Octavia said that Katniss Prep Team is the only one that's still alive. So I'm guessing it's like 4 people to Tribute. So 93 people died...Sad.

This is really nice. I Like your style. The Leegs and Cinna are my favorites. Not entirely sure why. Maybe because Cinna sort of reminds me of Percy Jackson here. :D Only criticism I have is almost trivial- Finnick's supposed to be a ginger. ;)
