Oh, God. OH, GOD.
I've been sitting here day after day, with every new chapter, too tired or maybe just too pained to review. But GOD. THE GAMES ARE STARTING. THE GAMES ARE STARTING. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
There are so many things in this chapter that I love. Unforunately Fanfiction won't let me click in and highlight stuff so I can't comment on individual phrases, argh. There were so many beautiful poetic phrases, the "(I dreamed.)" and "(I screamed.)" and Bryce's words to Henrik, and DEAR PANEM THE GAMEMAKERS' SECTION SO HORRIFYING and those last couple of lines...
I'm both excited and absolutely terrified for the next.

Sad interviews. For some reason makes me think about talking to kids at school about their plans for the future.

Liked the pacing of the interviews. His anger was well expressed. The ending mystery makes me want more!

What in Panem is going on here? THE COLD IS YOUR ENEMY? To quote Alder himself, "The hell does that mean?" O.O
Great chapter, as always. I did wish we got a bit of Alder's own interview, but the tracker-outburst pretty much served to give that characterization. Two favorite quotes: "There would be twenty-four next year. There had been twenty-four last year. But those had already faded from everyone's memory, hadn't they? Would we be gone that fast, too?" and "They would be trying to kill me in a fewf hours, but... they were all just versions of me." And the chapter title, of course, is beautiful and well-connected with the chapter.
Awaiting the next!

Have missed your writing. You didn't say score for Belle - maybe she was busy playing dodgeball? Till next time.

This actually made me feel a lot more for Cama than I've done before. Well, I guess since this was her first full chapter... she reminds me a lot of Callia from last year. Actually, when I first saw her name, I thought of Callia. (Oh, God, that was the Three girl's name, wasn't it? 'Cause Cala and Callia... no. Cala was CALA. Which means Three girl was Callia.)
Anyway, I was kind of hoping for a Tam-Cama alliance so they have better chances, but I guess that's not happening... And yeesh. Poor Quinn and Gunner. I'm proud of Henrikky, but still... Poor everyone, actually. For living in the THG universe. That world really does suck.
Awaiting the arena!
*rereads last two sentences* Oh, dear. I'm just like the Capitol, aren't I?

Tomorrow are the games - sounds like how we will feel the night before school starts. Love how he struggled but managed to remind them of Namitha - well done.

Yeah, Lavender is back! Intrigue in the capitol - Love it!

I always had hoped the arena was all fake - too bad...

Love the alliance! Interesting return to the story. "You have been warned" - knives are not for kids.

Dialogue about betrayal and allies very real. Enjoyed fight scene - wow, that sounds bad. Fight scene showed so much, wondering what a scene with Katniss and Peeta would have looked like in training.

I really felt her anxiety. I would expect every tribute to have a breakdown like that at some point. The demonstration style worked really well. Makes sense, more of a test than the tribute picking one thing to show the judges. Looking forward to seeing how they score things!

Cool stations, can you make a hammock?

Glad you are not a twin, I would wonder...
