Anonymous asked: I'd like your opinion on the following quote. "You could live a hundred lifetimes and not deserve him, you know" Haymitch. This seemed to me such a cruel thing for Haymitch to say to Katniss. But was it his intention to elevate Peeta at Katniss's expense or was it more about himself?
I do think it was Haymitch being his usual unpleasant drunk self toward Katniss. Or I guess he was being extra unpleasant, considering they just heard the Quell announcement.
If we look at their entire conversation, which included that quote, they were going back and forth on what each other should do at the reaping. Not because they were really more willing for other to make the sacrifice play, they didn’t, but Katniss and Haymitch have similar survival instincts and can be very pragmatic about it. They both recognized that they each owed Peeta after the 74th Games, but at the same time, both also knew what Peeta had already asked of Haymitch in order to pay off that debt. And being Katniss and Haymitch and they were inebriated, it doesn’t stop them from still taking shots at each other.
So I think Haymitch’s comment stemmed from all that, but I don’t think it was meant to be cruel as in to elevate Peeta at Katniss’s expense. It is likely meant to get a rise out of her during their on going back and forth, but Katniss didn’t take the bait that time, at least I don’t think she did. Katniss is very good at letting us as know when someone upsets her, but instead, she responded with “Yeah, yeah. No question, he’s the superior one in this trio. So, what are you going to do?”. She kept her focus on figuring out what they were going to do.
When they came to the conclusion that in the end, it’s still going to be Peeta and Katniss that’s going into the arena, Katniss figured out what she want to ask from him:
“If it is Peeta and me in the Games, this time we try to keep him alive.”
Something flickers across his bloodshot eyes. Pain.
So I think at that moment, Haymitch also realized something about Katniss that negates his earlier comment. It is probably something he already knew but when she said it out loud it’s when it really hit him, that Katniss was also willing to do the same thing as Peeta, and that she’s now right there with the boy. But the nature of Katniss’ and Haymitch’ relationship won’t allow him to vocalize that, at least in that moment, plus the fact what good does it do at that point. After Katniss went on to explain how it was the most practical course of action for them, I think he was understanding her beyond what she was just saying when he was weighing her words. I also believe he knew what peeta and katniss were doing was not just an attempt to save the other, but he realized that they were saving him from going back to the arena also. At the end of their conversation, all then Haymitch could say was “alright.”
