#THGBFF - Spotlight on Finnick And Mags

Friend /frend/

1. a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection.

During #THGBFF week we've been focusing on friendship. Real life friendships and The Hunger Games cast and characters' friendship. One of my favorite character relationships is the one between Finnick and Mags. Both from District 4 - Mags, a victor from a much earlier hunger games, was Finnick's mentor during the 65th hunger games in which Finnick won at the age of 14. From there, they formed a bond. Mags was like family to Finnick.

Mags volunteered for Finnick's love Annie Cresta in the 75th hunger games.

And even though Finnick had a way of being outwardly suave and nonchalant to most people, he loved Mags so much. "She basically raised him," as Haymitch pointed out in Catching Fire. "If he tries to protect her in any way, it exposes him. " and yet, protect Mags he did, carrying her through the arena most of the time.  

"Well, I can't leave Mags behind. She's one of the few people who actually likes me."

Mags made the ultimate sacrifice in the deadly fog section of the arena, not only for Finnick but for Katniss, Peeta, and the rebellion. Finnick mourned her through the night. 

As Johanna put it after Mags' death,

"She was half his family."

RIP Mags.
