He says, “Dude, here’s the deal. I’m here. Don’t worry about it. I’m here.” [x]
Jamie Foxx does the funniest RDJ impression, by the way.
His RDJ impression was (vocally) spot on
Today her drab school outfit has been replaced by an expensive white dress, and her blonde hair is done up with a pink ribbon. Reaping clothes.
"Pretty dress," says Gale.
Madge shoots him a look, trying to see if it’s a genuine compliment or if he’s just being ironic. It is a pretty dress, but she would never be wearing it ordinarily.
The Hunger Games, pg. 12
I know Madge is a minor character that we never get a great glimpse at. I think when we reduce her to ‘the girl in the pretty dress’ (or worse, we always stick her in frilly, expensive dresses in our canon universe stories) we are really misunderstanding her, like Gale does here. Yes, in this one instance we see her wear a ‘pretty dress,’ but here are some other things we know about Madge:
- She brings Katniss the mockingjay pin. Katniss is able to figure out the rebellious double meaning here, it’s not a stretch to think that Madge does, too.
- She goes into the woods with Katniss in CF.
- She brings Gale, a known rebel, medicine after his whipping (it’s probably a restricted substance considering the strength and expense).
- She helps Katniss and Peeta train for the Quell by bringing them newspaper clippings (and I question how legal this is if it’s something only the Mayor’s house has access to that even Victors don’t).
So although we don’t get much of her character in the series, I think it’s a disservice to her character to reduce her to the girl in the pretty dress. I get that it’s a cute moniker in a fandom filled with ‘the girl on fire’ and ‘the boy with the bread,’ but it’s impossible to simplify any character to a single attribute.
am I the only person who says ‘ow’ in surprise even if what happened didn’t remotely hurt me
HOW I FEEL WHEN IT IS MIDTERMS WEEK
Hunger Games AU
↳ Gale confronts Madge inside the Justice Building after saying goodbye to Katniss.
Gale stares at her for a long time before leaving, wondering if the mayor’s daughter even knows what a mockingjay represents.
johanna mason literally said “fuck you” to president snow but he’s like “oh shit katniss done made herself a bird”
It was like he had a second chance, to fall in love with her without distractions. Gale always wondered what would’ve happened if he didn’t find her in District Two.
This pretty much sums it up.
Apparently, SuCo didn’t agree with me, though.
Don’t care. A Captain never leaves his sinking ship.
then somehow ended up reading Gale & Madge fanfiction afterwards…
and OMG GADGE FEELS ASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKLASDGHJKL!!!!!!
