A cross-over fic in which Katniss is Jane, a forlorn human stuck in the jungle with apes. Nevertheless, her thought process is in English, and grammatical English at that.
Peeta enters the picture (Katniss refers to him as “the Peeta creature”) with a tiresome mate named “the Delly.” Apparently, Delly recently had a bout of the fever, so she and Peeta went to the jungle to recuperate, which is where the Peeta encounters Katniss.
Faster than you can say tiddlywinks, Katniss is taken to London by the Peeta, and ensconced in a palatial home. The following conversation ensues (Katniss can already speak English!)
Katniss: If you are civilly joined, why haven’t you tried procreation? Isn’t that the humans’ goal in life? To create more?
Peeta (hesitantly): Sure. But Delly and I want to take it slow. At a sloth’s pace, if you will.
Katniss: How long have you been joined?
Peeta: Four years.
Katniss: Wow. Some sloths are moving faster than you, I hate to say.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
