Miscellany

I just need you now;

I always thought 12 was a bit crabby

I just read the drabble you posted some weeks ago, and it was adorable! Totally made me smile with the animal names.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and for your kind words!

This will be me when Series 8’s soundtrack is finally released

Murray Gold’s music this series has been bloody brilliant as ever, and waiting for a proper OST release is pretty much as painful as waiting for the next episode.

yes yes yes!

:-).  Hopefully we’ll move into the interviews/movie clips portion of the marketing campaign soon.  Because heaven help me if I see more in the vein of savior/protector bullshit that has NOTHING to do with Katniss.

And Peeta and Katniss suggest that she stay in Katniss’ old house in the VV until the shoe store is finished being built. And Katniss likes her for always being there for Peeta and there is 0% jealousy from either of them because Delly is a saint.”

Headcanon accepted! That gif set got me thinking about Delly & how much she must have helped P in 13.He would have felt completely (he had to feel partially) abandoned w/o her.That lunch room scene would have been 10x worse wo her (& Jo to an extent)

Delly (and her brother) probably would be the few people whom even hijacked!Peeta cared for him sincerely and not because of his connection with Katniss.  Although I do wonder whether Coin also restricted Delly’s access to Peeta in an attempts to interfere with his recovery…I kind of imagine that there was only so much deviation from Delly’s schedule that was permitted by TPTB….

(Apropos of nothing, I also like the idea of Peeta striking a big brother kind of relationship with Delly’s brother, which he also finds very rewarding).

Not to mention that despite said kind/bubbliness and optimism, she’s willing to call people out on BS if pushed enough. Post-war, I can see her also as someone Peeta confides in whenever his confidence levels plummet.

Oh yes:  Delly can be very positive and optimistic but she certainly can lay down the real talk when required.  Which I think are characteristics that Katniss and Peeta both appreciate.

I agree. There are mentions of uprisings and the war causing problems for getting other resources, but the loss of coal doesn’t seem to hurt the Capitol or rebellion. I think 12 had been expendable for a while before it was bombed.

yes it totally makes sense. How important could coal be really. They probably just needed Twelve for the Games and nothing more.

Were there black-outs? Coal would/could have been used for electricity.

It could have but, considering the somewhat schizophrenic technological advancement of the country and the proportional size of Twelve, coal would have been impractical even by Capitol standards for a major power.

This is hammered all the more clearly when Snow didn’t hesitate to wipe Twelve off the map, and when there was no move to open a new mine even though the nation would need as many resources as possible to get back on its feet. There are likely be tons of alternative sources of power (I have fusion already being commonplace) that Twelve isn’t missed.

The one legit purpose of coal would be for coking when making steel. Even then, there would likely already be tech in place to be able to make it without.

Also blackout can be explained through power line and substation issues.

More likely than not, coal was used as a way to keep Twelve’s people busy and broken, with continued use of obsolete tech to justify its use. Once there was no more politcal use for that coal, the technological switch likely happened so fast it’d not even be funny.

They obviously don’t know a lot though, right? ;)

Indeed:  thank goodness for Nina and Francis!
