I really enjoyed reading this and it was beautifully done. As with any series, I think it's normal to feel that perhaps the final piece won't live up to mass expectation. I will always really enjoy HG series as a whole, but Mockingjay left a lot missing in the end for me. Mostly I missed a good-bye or resolution between Katniss & Gale. While I understood why SC did what she did, I appreciate you exploring the relationship between them and giving them some closure. I think it was needed so badly and I enjoyed reading.
I so loved reading about the progress of the relationship between Katniss and Peeta. There was a huge jump between the ending and the epilogue (we spent most of MJ watching Peeta with a lost mind that was never resolved except by the ending of the Capitol)...and while I don't need to read about every single moment, it would have been nice to see a few tender moment...to see the progression a bit, before jumping to the end. You did them great justice.
Thank you for writing and for sharing with us.

I just finished MJ and this OS is the perfect way for me to "come down" from the story. I really needed more Peeta and Katniss' at the end, so thank you, this is exactly how I enivisioned the two of them together. So sweet.

I liked Mockingjay, but I wanted more at the end. I was glad for the happy ending, but I wanted to know how they got there. It's like you filled in the missing pieces with this one-shot. I loved the closure w/ Gale. That badly missing in MJ. The love scene was perfect.

Nice, really, really lovely!
I thought you captured them and their first time together quite well. They really do belong together. ;-)
But I still miss Gale... *sniff*
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed reading!

This is perfect and beautiful, and exactly what was missing from the last chapter.

I hated Mockingjay and it ruined the whole series for me, but just by adding this little bit that you've written, it kinda makes it all better! Thanks!

This was beautifully written. After Mockingjay, I felt like there was so much missing. It was a little unsatisfying, but you've done a wonderful job tying up so many loose ends. Its like you filled in the gaps that I was craving. I really liked this line:
"In the woods, there are no political intrigues and questionable allegiances"
You stayed true to the characters and this story. Thanks for sharing!

Simply amazing - I loved this so much. It was great to see the return of Katniss and Gale's friendship instead of a reunion full of jealousy. Her slow awakening to Peeta is incredibly well-written - I wish this had been the actual ending of Mockingjay! Thank you!

This was so great! I really wanted more Peeta and Katniss, and I loved the closure with Gale. You really captured Katniss's voice also.

And something lying dormant in my chest, something I thought dead forever, shifts in its endless sleep.

Can I print this and stick it in between the last chapter and the Epi?
I think it was perfect.
