Re: Catches/Squee!

Glad you noticed the hark back to Drake. He actually did turn out to be Haymitch's mentor, after all.

The hell of seeing not just a twelve-year-old, but a small, fragile looking one... man. I imagined it, but I didn't want to.

I loved Catching Fire because of this very weird, wild family that the victors made together. If they weren't rebelling, I still think they'd have found ways to get together outside the Games. They have an experience that very few people do.

Haymitch really has shut off his feelings about Effie, and he doesn't even have the excuse of being brainwashed. He's just hurt, and does the thing he does when he's hurt: Pulls away.

I think Blight's thought wasn't a bad one, and no one really told him to put the brakes on, but the raiders weren't the free-spirits he imagined. They were vicious criminals. The argument at the lake was ultimately about whether the rebellion should find a way to keep the Capitol from annihilating them (since they were the ones who invited them to "rebel") or just let it happen (since the raiders were distinctly not going along with the rebels' plans).

I just think Haymitch would dig Sherlock Holmes.

When it comes to the Capitol, all I can think of is that in D12, Haymitch never would have had access to anything, really. The Capitol lets him take (some) classes, read (some) books, and indulge his random interests. It has things that occasionally challenge his mind. And it has the people he cares about. Chaff still has people he cares about in Eleven, and his district has had a tougher boot on its neck.

Before he gets to how to back Peeta's play, he's going to have to deal with Danny.
