This was such a ... wonderful seems a bit macabre, but I really enjoyed it. Especially, with the Wizard of Oz quotes.

The last sentence ruined the beautiful flow...

The last line was haunting. It made my stomach fall.

I... seriously... never reviewed this when I was judging? Oh, wow. I'm so sorry. But I'm here now.

Well, almost a year later-I still think this fic is brilliant. :) The theme is awesome, the romance is real, "epic" is incorporated perfectly, and it just packs in so much emotion, even in little snippets of dialogue.

I put more of a review in my recommendation of this fic at Nightlock:


Awesome awesome work.

I was hoping this would be an AU... but I like the stark reality of it, and how you dovetail it seamlessly into the HG world.

- just going to tell you that this single-handedly made haymitch/maysilee one of my new otps.

- "When the starry sky lights up with faces, she still tries to swallow her guilt and hugs her knees to her chest. Haymitch links an arm through hers as they listen to the anthem. They sit there with glazed eyes, and she doesn't feel happy, exactly, but maybe not miserable.

'I do miss home,' he says." oh, haymitch. this reminded me why he's one of my favourite characters.

I think you did a great job writing this. I really liked how you pulled this off... It was so very sad and sweet and you just did a great job! Keep up the awesome work!
Taywen chapter 1 . 4/4/2011
The Oz quotes were quite fitting for each section - that was a nice touch. Haymitch as the Scarecrow and Maysilee as the Tin man - fitting, again. Reading about the Games from her perspective rather than Haymitch's was interesting, as well as seeing her changing attitude towards the Games.

I liked it. :)

(As an aside, the Seneca Crane idea sounded interesting as well.)

Maybe if I read Wizard of Oz, I could appreciate this better. :)

Regardless, I like your prose. Very clean. The excerpts were lovely. I think you capture very well how shell-shocked Maysilee is, and maybe her misery, and her somewhat fatalism? I don't know if I agree with this characterization personally, but it's a very good character sketch. :)
