Requested by picksle: Not sure if you accept prompts but I adore your writing and couldn’t help but give it a go :) After Effie leaves the room, all shaken up about her children being sent to the Games for a second time, she is followed by Haymitch who tries to comfort her. So, I’d love to know what YOU think happened when he caught up and took Effie’s hand in his, what he said to reassure and convince her that they WILL survive.. you know, all that Hayffie angst ;) That would be awesome!
I’ve been working on this for nearly three days now and each time i tried writing this, the goodbye scene gets to me and i get attacked by feels and just nope, can’t write. But hey! got it out finally. Thanks for the prompt.
The pandemonium that erupted following the announcement of Katniss’ pregnancy was a sight Effie rarely ever saw in the Capitol. She pressed herself against the wall, too frightened that she might be trampled on. Her eyes roamed the dark, ears perked for any familiar voices. Her hand shot out and grabbed tight the sleeve of Haymitch’s shirt when she heard him hurrying straight passed her.
“Pregnant?” she whispered out of the corner of her mouth, trying to keep up with him in her heels.

Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
can you even imagine if the u.s. mourned people killed by police
like a real national outpouring
that moment of silence should last for years
The kind of gun culture I approve of.
