This actually ties in real well with the movie-ending (the only part of the later movies I really liked because, unlike the books, it made it seem like Katniss actually found peace in the end instead of just existing). And it's the first HG fic I've read where Katniss actively puts her past with Gale behind her to befriend him again and find happiness. Where there is no tension from Gale to Peeta about Katniss but just his gladness for them (though Peeta's uncertainty is perfectly understandable).
So in these aspects, it's quite unique. It's also well done. I liked seeing Katniss's progress, how the woods kept her alive until she could make sense of the rest of her life. And Peeta's joining hers.

This is the most amazing and beautiful pre-epilpogue I've ever read! It made me feel like Suzanne Collins was really the one who wrote this, you have a such talent! Thank you so much for sharing this story to us!

There are so many versions of this story, yet I love reading every new one I find. This was a really lovely interpretation and very true to character. Job well done!

I don't know why I'm crying, but I am.

You write beautifully. I feel like I drifted through this story as she drifted through her days, I love how every moment of this story means something, there's no place holders, no meaningless words or dialogue, it all serves a purpose and it makes everything mean that much more.

Very sweet story )

A great pre-epilogue fan fiction. It helps fill the gaping hole we all had when it came to these two and the happiness that always eluded them and then was just given, out of context and intangible. So it's nice to actually have this and to hold on to.
Thanks for sharing.

I loved it! It was beautifully written, the words flowing more like a song or a poem than a typical story. It was beautiful and wonderful! 10/10 would recommend to another reader! I just loved it, and thanks for writing!

That was the best written piece of fanfiction, I think I every read. I really loved how you portrait Peeta and Katniss and the pace, the story had was perfect. You treated that special moment between them so respectfully and nice. Both seemed so in character. Well done. I'm loving it, if you haven't guessed that yet. :) Cheers.

Gah. This is just what I needed to fill my desire for a canon piece. I've been missing this part of HG fan fic for quite some time now. I know this story is four years old (to the day- I just noticed!), but hopefully you still appreciate new reviews.

Perfect! So good!

Oh my goodness - Thank you for this! As excellent as Collins' novels were, she definitely could (and should) have taken some notes from you on the ending of Mockingjay. I was so sad this morning when I finished it, overcome with a definite sense of lack of completion; but reading this was all I needed to make the book right.
What Collins got wrong, and what you get absolutely right is the focus on the ability of love to heal things, the closure to Gale and Katniss' relationship, the final acknowledgment of her true feelings for Peeta, and the ability of the reader to actually see a partial return of Peeta's previous self. Most importantly, however, you stayed true to Katniss. Where Collin's makes her go very OOC, which many fans dismiss as the unavoidable results of PTSD, you have give us what I believe a real PTSD Katniss would be like: yes, she's damaged and confused and still trying to work it out - she has her good days and her very, very bad days...but in the end she's resilient. A fighter, through and through.
I also have to commend you on your ability to imitate the author's writing style. I could have believed she had written this, herself.
This was truly beautiful, and I know I will come back to it to read it again in the future. To describe it as "Perfect" would not be compliment enough. Thank you for repairing my view of the series. It's amazing the effect an ending can have.
Thank you again and again. You are awesome. :)

I loved this fan fiction! It keeps to the story, and it sounded like Suzanne Collins wrote it!
