And on the more fannish side of MJ2 - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
And on the more fannish side of MJ2


That was an interesting little moment at the end, when Haymitch openly kissed Effie goodbye. And maybe the most interesting thing about it (for me, anyway) is that it was very, very obviously not a first kiss. It was written, directed, and acted as if it was something that, while we may not have seen it before, has been going on for a while, and no one thinks twice about it.

I don't take movies as serious sort of canon -- as 7Up says about caffeine, never had it, never will -- but that doesn't mean I don't go into full scale squee when someone else validates my reading. :D

So, full-scale squee. Not as loud as it was for Remus/Tonks, because it wasn't quite as much of a shot in the dark, but I liked it. For a not-much-of-a-shipper (ashipual?), I really find myself oddly pleased when these guesses work out.

I was surprised but really pleased when I got to that part of the film! A little taken aback, admittedly, because Effie had been pretty much a one-liner in the film. But pleased still.

Well, I read once where someone said you could see a hint of Hayffie in Mockingjay part 1. When Haymitch is giving his talk about how to present Katniss. He says to Effie, "I like you better without all that stuff on your face" and she says "Well I like you better sober".
