No idea if you're still answering these, but in case you are:

Gia and/or Blight: You're one of the few successful District/Capitol couples; how did you manage to maintain a long-term serious relationship while only seeing one another once a year, considering the various available distractions/temptations.

And if I can cheat and ask one more: Jack, if you're not averse, tell me something about Lindon? How did the two of you meet etc. etc.?

Intrigued by couples today, for some reason.:)

[Gia]It was a job of work. We spent a lot of time on the phone, pretending to talk about the Games, and wrote each other a lot of letters. I got a travel permit to go out there for the Victory Tour -- that's been stopped since -- so we got to see each other in the winter, and trust me, we kept each other nice and warm. And what passes for a relationship in the Capitol doesn't seem very appealing once you've had a real relationship, so I never felt much temptation. Ollie did, and I'm reasonably sure he cheated on me at least twice, though he never 'fessed up to it.

[Jack]Linden and I were in the same logging troop, and we grew up together, though he was three years older than I was. Neither one of us was exactly secretive about who we were. The only people who didn't know about me were the people who only knew what was in the official cut of the Games (in other words, the ones Snow had it in his mind to sell me to, mostly because I think he liked the idea of making me act that far against my nature... he sure didn't mind people knowing about Brutus!) District Seven isn't one of the more uptight districts, truth to tell. But we never dated until about a year after the Games. Linden had watched what happened in my Games, and guessed what happened in the scenes they didn't show -- before I ended up killing my "ally." He understood, and realized exactly how broken I was, and why. And he helped put me back together again.
