It’s June 13th, 2014! Do you know what that means?



Yes, it’s been three years since our little Hunger Games themed corner of the Internet made its debut! If you told us (particularly me) three years ago that this site would develop into a delightful community of fandom-wide discussion and hilarity, introduce us to tons of amazing friends, and provide us with stellar opportunities to really dive into the fandom we already love in ways that are usually reserved for people WAY cooler than us, our general reaction would be “NO EFFING WAY!”

We won’t bore you with sentimental mush this year. In short, we want to say THANK YOU with some sweet contests! The best part? They’re all open internationally!


We know every fan just about is a thousand percent done with waiting for the MOCKINGJAY: PART 1 trailer, so why not turn it into an awesome game?!



Guess the date and time of the MOCKINGJAY: PART 1 trailer released in the comments and you’ll automatically be entered to win a Catching Fire Fan Camp poster signed by Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and Jeffrey Wright!

1) Comment on this post with the date and time you think the Catching Fire trailer will be released! All times must be PST. It’s can be down to the minute, if you’d like!
2) In the event that two contestant guess the same exact time, the first visitor to comment will win.
3) All contestants must include a valid email in the appropriate field.
4) This contest is ONGOING until the trailer release!
5) ONE GUESS PER CONTESTANT. Anyone putting in multiple guesses will be disqualified.
6) The winner will be contacted on the day of the trailer release. The winner has 48 hours to claim their prize, after which the prize will be offered to the second closest guess.

CLARIFICATION: Some fans have been asking what we mean by “trailer”. We are defining it as the first montage of footage from Mockingjay: Part 1. Additionally, we will base the contest on the time it will be released online, NOT the time is appears in theaters.


Check out the page below (because Rafflecopter is so jelly of our awesomeness that it won’t work on this site!) t enter for a chance to win another signed Catching Fire Fan Camp poster, DVDs, or Hunger Games art!



We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your support! It’s not always an easy experience, but it’s super rewarding and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

And It’s Friday the 13th! Muahahahaha!

Victor’s Village First Anniversary and Hunger Games Giveaway!


It was on June 13, 2011 that The Girl With The Pearl officially launched Victor’s Village with this post. She did so after zero luck while applying to other fansites, with only one affiliate (The Hob) and no idea what the site would grow into (though I’m not going lie– I secretly hoped to be “Internet famous”, which would pretty much put us on par with a D-list celebrity).

But I didn’t get to one year all by myself, despite that being my original plan. There are a lot of people I need to dedicate this first year to, so HERE GOES NOTHIN’:

  • To the “writers” who originally agreed to work on Victor’s Village, then stopped responding to my e-mail a week before launch.

  • To Them There Eyes and Twiffidy, two amazingly fantastic writers who came on board in September and do not suck at life like the previously mentioned “writers”.

  • To Savanna and Adam of Hunger Games Fireside Chat, who put us on the map in The Hunger Games community by inviting us into their little family. Also, for our domain name, because technically they own it!

  • To the other amazing fansite friends we’ve made, especially those who joined us at the premiere of The Hunger Games.

  • To all the readers who leave smart, hilarious, insightful comments and rebuttals that make our lives a little better with each one.

  • To the readers who ONLY comment when they want to give us shit. You bastards know who you are… Just kidding! Sort of.

  • To the pervy fans who only stumbled across our site while looking for Hunger Games-related smut.

  • To all the Hunger Games fans who don’t realize there’s an apostrophe in “Victor’s”. LOOK IT UP.

  • To the actors who have read and responded to our articles. In our minds, everyone has read our blog. In reality, we can only confirm Jackie Emerson, Armie Hammer, and Daniel “my fake cousin directed me here to defend myself” Newman.

  • To The Fandom, Welcome to District 12, and Armie Hammer for Finnick Odair, for keeping the three of us busy and sane outside of Victor’s Village.

  • To The Hunger Games Hob, especially Tess from Tanglethorne, for providing us with amazing prizes for contests.

  • To the actors, filmmakers, and all the other people behind The Hunger Games, for providing a constant source of inspiration.

  • To the media sources covering The Hunger Games, for providing constant fodder for us to facepalm about.

  • To Suzanne Collins, the Mac Daddy to end all Mac Daddies

And YOU. No matter where you fall in that line of dedications, if you’re reading this right now… Thanks.

Now it’s time for us to give something back to you!

Entering is simple: Leave a comment on this post discussing favorite Victor’s Village post and why you love it (and INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, otherwise we can’t contact you) and you’ll be entered to win some brilliant prizes!


One poster signed by Willow Shields (Prim) and Isabelle Fuhrman (Clove) from the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games!

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON. This giveaway is open to ALL readers, including the international ones! You must enter by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, June 17! Winners will be chosen by numbering the comments, then choosing three numbers on! Mays the odds be… nevermind, that’s overused like crazy.

1, 2, 3, GO!

Only we would invent a contest in which the only real qualification is to flatter us,
The Girl With The Pearl
