On the weekend I spent a bit of time trolling through the Hunger Games and I noticed that there seems to be a ton of fanfiction. About Josh Hutcherson. Which, I suppose, is fine. But I feel that it’s a touch creepy when people write themselves into a fanfiction opposite a famous person.
I get that fanfiction is a great outlet for people who want more out of their favourite characters, and that’s fine. Like if someone wants to write Care Bears incest fanfiction, with Hugs and Tugs, I’m all for that. But if they wrote themselves INTO that….not cool.
There’s a line. And some people definitely keep crossing it.
Anyone else ever wonder why the names in the Hunger Games trilogy are all kind of…weird.
I understand that there is historical and mythological and cultural significance to a fair number of the names, but they’re still weird.
Cato, Glimmer, Marvel, Clove, Rue, Thresh, Cinna, Boggs, Beetee, Wiress, Enobaria, Effie, Haymitch, Gale, Primrose, Peeta, Katniss…. (not to mention the names from the Roman Empire and Ancient Greece, as well as Roman and Greek Mythology).
