Effrim playing choir director with the jabberjays cracks me up!

I'm quite looking forward to the kids' escape. (The bloodthirsty side of me hopes that Trajan doesn't survive that escape....) Their different attitudes toward taking the other kids along totally encapsulates everything about both Misty and Duronda. "What do you mean, take them with us?" "What do you mean, what do I mean?" Each thinks it's totally obvious. And I like that our POV character is not the crusader, of-course-we-take-them character. You're good at not always making the POV character the one who finds moral choices easy.

Still reading, and still enjoying, and still usually a flake about commenting,

I'm looking forward to them getting away, though I've committed to a few chapters with the raiders (it gives them other people to talk to, among other things).

Effrim lets himself be pulled along fairly easily (so does Katniss, though she gives more attitude about it), but sooner or later, he's going to have to start making decisions.

Glad you're still reading! (I've been wondering if people are reading this one, I have to admit. It's out there.)

You have to ASK???

Of course we're reading! You have the courage to go into uncharted territory within THG fanfic, and the brains to make your brand-new subuniverse be plausible and "realistic." And myself, I like how you bring a statue of Abe Lincoln into "Panem."

I have a request: When the D12 kids escape, please have them take Juliana (the Capitolista) with them.

Re: You have to ASK???

I'll see. I have a little bit of outline, but I'm not sure how it ends yet, exactly. I kind of like the idea of having someone from the other side involved.

Glad you're liking it!
