For Haymitch

Was Katniss the first tribute who really got the messages you were trying to send with arena gifts? Did she understand everything or was there something she missed?

Re: For Haymitch

Eh, sometimes they'd pick a few things up. When I could think of something to tell them, which wasn't always a given. A lot of them, there was nothing to say. They knew the stakes, and there wasn't much of a strategy to run. Things changed too fast to try.

But yeah, there were a couple here and there. I knew Katniss was different when she was looking for water. I'd have sent her some if she'd really started to lose consciousness, even though parachutes on the first day risk being tracked -- it wouldn't make a difference if she died of dehydration or a spear wound -- but she didn't. I could see her thinking, and she must have realized that I could see from the aerial view that she was close.

I wanted to send her a message when she was with Rue, to get to the river where they could both pick up Peeta, but the money hadn't started to roll in yet. I was going to send her an empty canteen. Since hers was in good shape, she'd have known something was going on. But it didn't work out.

Thank you!
I really hope that I get to see your Haymitch POV of the 74th Games
