Re: Some Possible Catches

I just realized that we weren't mutual friends (forgive me -- I honestly didn't realize!). I do some meta; it's just mostly under f-locked posts. I've also been using my other blog sporadically for movie reviews.

Haymitch's need to realize that he's not a kid and not in the arena is really turning into the theme here. Of course, he can't completely accept it for another couple of books, because we know how he is... but I think he's starting to accept the idea that he's not one of the kids now, but one of the "parents." He's missed his birth family so much, I think that the idea of having a family is such a healing notion for him, but also, as it is for Katniss, an utterly terrifying one with the Games on. Of course, he finally accepts Katniss and Peeta as spirit-children, only to have them reaped again.

And yes, that's what Finn had on his mind. He was also considering the possibly inadvisable (at this point) idea of flatly telling Haymitch that Jo isn't kidding. That both of them think of him as essentially a second father, and that they think he's good at it, and feel safe in his care. (Imagine the scoffing Haymitch would do at the idea that he'd kept Finnick safe.) Finnick also wants to tell him to have a real family already, in Twelve, but that's such a weird thing to say to spirit-dad that I'm not sure he could have spit it out anyway.
