Fake movie: Thick or Thin (aka Catching Fire romcom AU)
Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) is a wedding planner looking for a breakthrough for her career. The opportunity seems to arise with the organization of the Everdeen-Mellark wedding, bound to be the event of the year, but she soon finds out things won’t go so smoothly. For instance her lovely couple is not so in love, and the catering manager they choose is someone she knows very well, Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), an alcoholic former master chef she finds herself butt heads with many times, very skilled with knives, but unable to behave once he hits the bottle.
Effie’s fears of him ruining her party are soon put aside when she has to face the sudden relocation of the event, or the possibility the bride (Jennifer Lawrence) might run away with her highschool sweetheart, now professional football player Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), or the weather preventing the groom (Josh Hutcherson) to fly back from his business trip right before the wedding…
With stress piling up and so many things to do before the big day, Effie starts having panic attacks and, to her surprise, finding comfort in Haymitch’s philosophical drunken conversations. Until the morning of the wedding she wakes up in his bed… and he’s nowhere to be found.
The event itself goes smoothly enough even without him around but Effie is on the verge of breaking, feeling oppressed by pressure to succeed and the fear she might have ruined the only relationship she ever treasured. In a spin of overflowing emotions she runs through the last minute details and problems, trying to connect the dots of their mutual drunken confessions to make sense of the previous night, only to find out he’s been slowly trying to kill himself with alcohol and guilt over the loss of his family in a car crash years before. Unable to pick up the pieces alone he found strenght in her while she was relying on him but, not wanting to add this pressure to her already stressed life, he left.
Now in full panick attack, she locks herself up in the bathroom, convinced she lost him forever, till Haymitch seeks her out at last. He asks her to be patient while he sorts his life out, his first meeting with AA under his belt. They agree to see each other through thick or thin, possibly for life.
the ending is lame i know, i’m that sappy =P
i’ve been watching a lot of their movies lately and that popped into my mind before bed one night… thanks to ellanainthetardis for making sense of it =D
So here it is. My Catching Fire AU. I hope you all like it. All my thanks and my love to akachankami for her beta reading and her wonderful amazing graphics.
“Yeah, well… Maybe we should start believing in fate, sweetheart,” he jokes, taking hold of the hand that is still fisted around the cursed piece of paper. She has never let it fall even in the confusion. “You’ve drawn out Peeta’s name, after all. If you had drawn out mine…”
She can’t look at him. She can’t do anything but shut her eyes tight and hope this is all a bad dream. It couldn’t be happening. It just couldn’t…
Somewhere a Clock is Ticking
Part 1 : The Quarter Quell Announcement
Effie’s quietly humming, assessing the state of her favorite pink wig, she’s supposed to watch the television but it fails to grasp her attention tonight. She has already seen every one of Katniss’ dresses and the interview between Caesar Flickerman and Cinna doesn’t really interest her. She’s barely listening to their chit-chat, too busy wondering if she can afford another wig this month. She has seen one in a shop, down the main road, that caught her eye. It’s golden, just like Katniss’ pin and she thinks it would go nicely with most of her dresses but it’s a little expensive and being an escort for District Twelve doesn’t really pay that well. Oh, she had a raise after the last Games, of course, because she belongs to the victors team, but… life isn’t actually cheap when you want beautiful things.
She loves her flat, despite the fact that it’s a little tinier than she would like. She made up for the size with the furnishing, only the best and the last fashion for her home. The walls are painted white because it gives the illusion that there is much more space than there actually is, she has a lovely shade of pink velvet sofa that is precisely the same color as the carpet in her bedroom – she does love pink – she has a big television and, of course, she recently had the last model of window set up. With that one, she only has to push a button to look out on a meadow or a forest or anywhere really… It was a little too expensive and she definitely shouldn’t have because, now, she has to go for a whole month without buying any clothes or she will have to call her father and ask for money – which she hates to do. That means the golden wig is out of the question, she concludes, just as the first shot of Katniss appears on screen.
you should read this! it’s epic!!! trust me!
