Madge's Survival: The Key Note in Mockingjay

The Hunger Games fandom is abuzz with the two articles written by John Granger and Travis Prinzi, both famed Potter pundits.

While I believe it all to be a major part of the fandoms that such theories are talked about, I also regret the harsh criticism John Granger’s Pearl Theory and more have recieved.

Personally, I think most of the critique – and rather rude ones at that – that Granger’s article recieved was from fans who’re actually fans of simple “Team Peeta” or “Team Gale”, and more interested in who Katniss ends up with to have a happily ever after.
Like I said about Travis Prinzi’s article too, Hunger Games REALLY is more than just that.

Just to be completely clear, I am not naive enough to believe Katniss’s development will be complete without either Peeta or Gale.

I am looking forward to more of the article, especially on ones that’ll include more detail on why Madge could be the daughter of Haymitch – which is one thing, I believe to be far fetched. But oh well, we’re all just analyzing, after all.

Madge has been a central point to most theories, because what we see of her is a shadow, but in the narrative, we come to know that she plays the role of a friend whom Katniss trusts.

I’m not an amazing analyst like either Granger or Prinzi, but this is something I must talk about.

Read on only if you’ve read Catching Fire!
