Yeah, I did it...


I don't care what Mockingjay says. Madge dies when I say she dies. lol. This is actually based on a NEW Gale/Madge fic that I'm working on. This one is post-Mockingjay and based off of Mockingjay (which I don't care what anyone says, I LOVED MJ!). It's set 8 years after the book (not including the epilogue). That's why they look so much older here. You're wondering... How can that be, when Madge died in MJ? Oh, I have my ways. I have my ways :D

SUCH a fun picture to draw!! I never get to draw sweetness and romanticalness. lol. I've always wanted to draw an adorable couple, but it never turned out right. I like how this one came out, though. I had easy characters to work with, since I love Gale and Madge and they seem like they'd be a couple like this. Do you guys feel the love? I sure hope so, because I spent hours trying to make sure that it showed. :huggle: :heart:

I colored it by had with colored pencils and made it better looking with my new Photoshop CS3. I stick by Gale/Madge thoroughly and will continue to draw for them, because I go down with my ship! Hahaha.

Really though, pick your favorite ill-fated Town Girl/Seam Boy pairing (whether it's Gale/Madge, Mr. and Mrs, Everdeen or Haymitch/Maysilee), this pic could be a tribute to them. Apparently, TG/SB is a bad way to go, because one of them will die. lol.

Please view full size. It looks a lot less stupid that way. hehe.

I agree Madge did not die in Mockingjay. I have my own theory to what happened to her. I think she figured out what would happen when Katniss did the destroying the dome thing and ran for it. The body they found was just a maid but because the body was so burnt and damaged they just thought it was Madge. She later escaped to district 2 where finds Gale and they fall in love and live happily ever after. Because Madge DID NOT die.

aww,i love gale and madge together
Ikr! Madge is just mentioned in passing like "OH HAAAYY! I forgot to tell you! Madge spontaneously dies with no background story? Is that ok? Oh yaay her and Gale will have no story so Gale ends up alone mkay?"

Fans: W T F ?!?!

Great drawing though!! <3 What's the fic called I think I've read it
