Re: Some more Catches/Feedback

I put in a reference to the car (as the sort of thing a random staff person might call for) as being smaller and less armored than the one the Gamemakers sent to take him to Claudius's.

Since I just "met" Aquila myself, I don't know how she's going to play out. I'm beginning to think I'll have to add a few things into the old stories rather than trying to write around why Haymitch never thinks of them. I don't generally like to do that, but I know so much more now, see? ;p

Re: Some more Catches/Feedback

I can definitely understand needing to add more things to the older stories; the prequels expanded so much!:d When you decide to edit and how you'll edit (not sure if you'll just edit specific chapters, or just take them down for a week or two and edit them in full, the way you used to with the HP drafts), feel free to let me know, and I'll go through the older ones and send a list of typos/continuity stuff (mostly different surnames for certain characters etc. etc.), if you'd like to catch those into the bargain? It'll give me an excuse to reread the older ones!:d

I meant to say in my earlier comment that I absolutely loved all the religious symbolism Cinna worked into this one. I'm fascinated by religion's effect on culture, and you're one of the few authors that consistently plays with that theme in a really insightful way.

And I was really intrigued to see your interpretation of how Finn/Annie are allowed to behave in the Capitol; I was rather surprised that Finn was "allowed" to be publicly affectionate with Annie and Snow insisted that the cameras ignore it, and then morbidly wondered if he doubled the guy's schedule for granting a "favor" Or, is he just anticipating that Finn will age out of "usefulness" soon, the way Haymitch implied inGM, so it doesn't matter as much? Or was Finn actually not "allowed", but the producers just decided not focusing on it was the best way to handle things. *crosses fingers very tightly it was the former possibility*
