Transcript of Hunger Games
The Call to Adventure is a particular incident in the character's life that launches them off on the course of the story.
When Primrose was chosen as District 12 female tribute in the Hunger Games, Katniss quickly volunteers to save her sister's life. This is Katniss's call.
When the hero agrees to take on the journey, it is the point of no return, a moment of commitment and change, leaving behind the old and accepting the new.
When Katniss and Peeta board the train to the Capital, she is leaving behind her old life and is committed to her new destiny.
Mentor/s keep the hero in focus to work towards their goal.
Haymitch was the Hunger Games victor from a previous year and, being one of the only victors from District 12, was assigned as a mentor to both Katniss and Peeta.
The initiate begins the journey into the unknown.
The starting of the game is the initiation of this book. (The initiate; Katniss is not safe anymore by going in to the arena)
They're some of the main companions that help direct and support the Hero throughout the story.
Peeta would be the main helper. And although some might say he hinders Katniss more than he help's her, he provides continuous support and friendship that helps motivate her to stay alive throughout the story.
The Ultimate Challenge
Other Helpers would include Gale, Rue, Cinna, Effie, and Prim.
There are many classic character's in a story. Examples would be the Hero, the Outcast, the Scapegoat, Star-Crossed Lovers, ect.
In the games, there are many challenges that Katniss has to face, including getting burned, stung by tracker jackers, Rue's death, defeating Cato and helping Peeta. Katniss fails at one task and that was protecting Rue and that enrages Katniss's anger towards the capitol.
One temptation the initiate had was that she has the chance to kill Peeta and win the Hunger game on her own, but she ends up overcoming that temptation because she knows exactly what the capitol wants.
At the point of atonement the character is transformed and at one with themselves. The Atonement can occur before or after the Abyss.
Katniss reaches this point after the abyss at her final interview with Cesar. She has reached her understanding that in order to protect herself and her family she must pretend to be in love with Peeta.
The Revelation is a sudden dramatic change in the way one thinks or views life.
In the end, when Katniss and Peeta beat Cato, they thought they had won the Games. However, when the Announcer stated that they changed their minds and that two tributes from the same district could not win, that there could only be one victor, Katniss had to change her initial ideal of living with Peeta to dying together as martyrs.
Katniss has to figure out what to do when the rule is changed. The rule of the game was that two people of the same district can win but Peeta got injured so Katniss has to go to the Cornucopia and get him the medicine all by herself.
Not only that she has to do it alone, though, it's the "darkest part". It's around this time that Katniss actually starts loving Peeta, and the thought of losing him scares her. She has to go out and face all the other living victors (who are quite powerful) alone. Along with the mindset that she will probably die (but if she does Peeta will as well)
“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
- Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Katniss and Peeta return home to District 12 with money and shelter from winning the Games. Although it was more implied than shown, they brought hope to both District 12 and other 11 Districts.
