| Gamemakers chapter 1 . 5/19/2016
I realized recently that although this has been one of my absolute favorite stories for years, I'd never actually reviewed. (Maybe I did as a guest. It's been so long that I'm really not sure.) Four years after first reading it, I thought it was time to remedy that :-)
I absolutely adore the world that's been built here. District Four and the Capitol both seem like very real places that exist beyond the smaller portion that Finnick and Annie occupy. I think the minor characters are what really sells this place to me. From Finnick's family to the Capitol stylists, they're all so vivid that even a good year or so after I last read this (which will have to be remedied soon), I can still recall details about them.
Honestly, that goes for so much of this story. I can't say how many times I've remembered a snippet of a fic and it's turned out to be this one, or how many times I've had to go to the books and check if that detail was just here or if it happened in the original as well. It's really just a lovely, lovely story, and I've enjoyed it a lot and am very happy you chose to share it &hearts

Firstly I want to say that I read this on archive of our own - but I don't have an account (yep should get on that) so instead of just giving kudos I wanted to tell you what I think.. When it comes to fics like this I'm so invested in them that nothing else matters and life sort of becomes a standstill until I can finish reading the fic.. This is what the past couple of days have been like, I have inhaled (yes believe me inhaled) your fic. I have been looking for and wanting to read a fox like this that explores PTSD and recognizes that it's not something that oh yeah Annie is crazy and Finnick loves her - your fic made me love them- and not even a little bit I am in love with your Finnick and Annie and I want more more more. I want to know what happens even though I do, I want to know what's going on with Annie (even though I do) and mostly, most of all I don't want Finnick to die, but this may be an eventuality.. I also want to thank you for writing this - a fic that is as involved and as heart renching as this I can only imagine what it takes out of the author and I can't thank you enough for giving me a fic that ticks all my boxes for fantastic writing. You rock. Seriously. Thank you. I could go on forever about how brilliant this fic and how much I want more but it would just turn into repetitive gushing... So might just leave it here and say thanks. I soooooooo hope that there will be another, even though I know my heart will break again. For this fic - thank you for making me fall in love with Finnick and Annie - for making me proud of mags and look at katniss and peeta in a whole different perspective: you're brilliant.
Thank you. Sincerely.

I was looking for stories about Finnick and Annie in French, but there are not many, so I switched to the English language. And I literally fell in admiration for your story from the first paragraphs. The descriptions of District Four and the atmosphere that you create are perfect. And the plot is really well done, with characters that stick to those of the Canon. I look forward to progress in the story but I take my time because the pleasure of reading will last longer. I come back later for an other review !

Arggggghh. I was tryin to find this story but you hanged the rating. But I finally found it. Best AnnieXFinn story ever. I look up to authors like you who dedicate hours to write amazing sorties for us fans to read. I love your work. I should really get back to studying for midterms.

I know this is not much of a review, just saying that I loved your fic but it's true. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, although getting to know your take (a thorough one, not just snippets) of how Annie and Finnick met would be great too.

I really love the way you write Finnick and Annie! As I was ready I felt like it was actually canon, hell better than canon. What you wrote makes so much sense to me now I can't separate it from from the actual books! I love reading both Finnick and Annie's sides of the story within the same chapter, so thanks for that!
I can't wait for the sequel, so I wish you all the luck in the world in getting it started and finishing up your notes! I know for sure how busy life can be but you have a good number of readers here to support you! For the sequel, I would hate for Finnick to die. Yeah it would be nice to see his side of things when he sacrificed himself, but it literally killed my soul when he died. So if you can, pretty please, deviate on that aspect? Or leave it as a surprise for us. But whatever you come up with will be brilliant, I'm sure.
Keep writing and good luck again! This was such an amazing story to read.

I tore through this, and cannot wait for the sequel. Brilliant writing and plotting, I love the deviations from the main cabin because I never got over Finnick's death, it served no point, and he and Annie have always been my favorites.

Please do upload a sequel: I love this story, and would love to see you continue it!
