I've been thinking all day about how much I enjoyed the moment when Haymitch daydreamed about having a picnic with Katniss and Peeta. I like the idea that his attachment to them--and to the idea that they could both win--snuck up on him, even as he was deliberating manipulating public opinion. That seems very Haymitch.

I think one of the things that Haymitch, Katniss, and Peeta all have in common is that they're very lonely, and feel estranged -- before the Games canonically for Katniss and Peeta, and in my 'verse, for Haymitch as well (though after 24 years living alone and drunk in Victor's Village, I don't think it matters if it started before the Games or not). The idea that he doesn't have to be lonely for most of the year must be simultaneously intoxicating and terrifying.
