so, i imagine s15 takes place a while after s13, and just
someone: did you name a section of the new capitol’s library after general doyle? kimball: yep someone: it’s labeled “shakespeare’s works” but there’s nothing actually by the author there, so— kimball: [wiping a tear away] it’s what he would have wanted
The man was never meant to lead, he even fainted at the sight of authority and guns, he was terrified of Locus to a degree. Yet, over the course of the trilogy we see him become assertive, we see him taking chances he knows are dangerous, we see him grow by leaps and bounds.
He isn’t like Kimball. His strength is different from hers. She is a flash flood, taking everything with her, her power coming in strong and fiercely after a sudden storm - no one able to stop her until she runs out. He is like a wild fire spreading through the forest, slowly at first, needing oxygen and fuel to grow - yet, if someone had put out his fire in the beginning he would have gone out before he was able to grow, but now he is unstoppable.
Donald Doyle there in the end was simply unstoppable. He was going to do whatever it took to save his people and Kimball’s people.
And in the end. With enemy soldiers threatening him. Donald Doyle did not faint, nor did he try to talk them out of harming him. No, he stood firm, even calmly misquoting Shakespeare.
His fire was put out, but his embers left behind were still burning in the end. He was just that unstoppable.
I can’t stop thinking “What if Kaikaina came to Chorus”
Imagine Palomo wanting to be like Tucker SO MUCH so he’s hitting on the chick in yellow and she’s reciprocating??? and he’s stunned like “wait what you’re not turning me down the girls always turn Tucker down I never learned this part what do I do”
And then Kai meets Jensen and INSTANT best friends and bitching about the boys and sleepovers with them and Donut and just good times??? positive shit for the war girls
But when she meets Bitters it’s like having another brother and just fuck there’s two of you now
Then she hits on Kimball and Kimball’s honestly?? so??? shocked??? like she’s so out of it once the flirt hits her bc someone actually complimented her??? This soldier actually doesn’t hate her?? and she completely misses the homo intended and accepts Kai’s compliments about her body and her mind and just more positive shit for the war girls ok
