I know you have probably 100 prompts on your list but I can't help it. Effie is being called Mrs Abernathy for the first time in public and Haymitch's reaction to it. Please make it awkward. Thank you so much.

It begged for a five + one time thing ;) [X]

Five Times Someone Assumes They’re Married & One Time They Forget They’re Not


“Why is there a boy mowing the lawn?” Haymitch frowned, dropping his coat on an armchair despite her pointed glare. Coats went on the rack, Haymitch, not on furniture – her favorite lecture.

“Because you wouldn’t do it and it was starting to look like a jungle.” she replied, carefully applying a new layer of nail polish on her thumb. It was a deep shade of green.

“Could have done it.” he insisted, dropping on the armchair, half sitting on his coat.

“You could have.” she snorted. “But would you have?”

He stared at her for a while, trying to figure out if he wanted to get annoyed over this, and then he shrugged. “Point taken.”

Effie, you don't seem the same since the Capitol fell. What happened to you after the Quarter Quell? (book version) And do you have anything to say about Katniss since she assassinated Coin? Or thoughts about the new Panem? (Hope it's okay I asked three questions.) Thanks!

Oh, it’s quite alright, and I appreciate the concern.

After the Quell ended, President Snow had me detained. My time in captivity was… lacking in its hospitality, though I will say that I didn’t endure the horrors that the victors had to go through… the poor dears, especially Peeta.

After the Capitol was taken, District Thirteen detained me as well. I could have easily met the same fate of my fellow escorts if it weren’t for Haymitch and Ms. Cardew smoothing things over with my captors. I was still forced to go through reeducation though as a Capitol citizen; the treatment there was… lacking in hospitality as well.

So it doesn’t surprise me that they treated Katniss with utter barbarity and attempted to run the show during her trial. At least she’s going back to her home now.

Even in this short amount of time, things have improved greatly ever since Paylor was appointed to power; enough so that I can see why the districts fought. She even has me as a personal aide! After all, someone has to keep the schedules in order, especially with things as messy as they are.

Elizabeth Banks called back to Donald Trump’s RNC entrance as she took the stage at the DNC.

Banks went on to mock the Republican National Convention, comparing it to her role in The Hunger Games.

“Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket — a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia,” she said. “So when I tuned in to Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey, that’s my act.’”
