Of course the train never arrives. You can't have people actually helping people. The Capitol can only function in a world where everyone is only looking out for themselves and, in that world, every act of kindness between people who they need to be at odds is a revolutionary act. Poor Effie believing she could make a difference and poor people of 12 who needed it. Also, I liked how it very briefly intersected on the grand romance of Katniss and Peeta, but only as the smallest of side note.

I noticed a couple of things which need correcting: she's been fond of Haymitch since he actually the force field in his Games This is missing a word or two.
maybe you should at the bakery Another missing word.

Yup. Though whether it's the Capitol stopping the train, or the people the Capitol will blame it on... hard to say in Panem.

I'll grab those. I was writing pretty fast yesterday, and they're probably not my only goofs! :D

Of all the classic-Snow moves, this one makes the least sense. Snow always talks about the tough-love for the Districts, and then forgets the "love" part. That train of grain would probably do more to tamp down rebellion than a couple platoons of Peacekeepers (and of there's little the Capitol could do to piss off D12 more than prevent promised relief supplies from coming). (Note: I'm not criticizing your writing. This is !totally! what Snow would do, because he's a moron sometimes)

It is... though I'm not sure this is really Snow's doing.
