Just lovely. There’s an intimacy here that transcends sex. The naked vulnerability that she shows here is both tender and bittersweet and I could just imagine little Effie wanting to rebel the trend, but being beaten down by everyone around her. I just hope Haymitch truly appreciates this gift that she’s given him.

As much as I LOVE your M-rated stuff, I have to say that this story was perfect without it. And I really mean perfect. Effie without all that make-up is always something special and beautiful and I love how he got to know more of her here. And give me a Haytfie kiss and I'm happy so thank you!

Discovered your Hayffie work late. Like 1 Dec. 2014. Really good. Evocative, erotic and downright great. Does your legal career let you write anything new? Say based on the film Mockingjay? If you want to contact me, I tweet under Lady Cecily Neville with the Alma Tadema portrait. My email addresses are . or .

CUTENESS, CUTENESS EVERYWHERE
God, you make her parents sound exactly like I'd imagined them - cruel monsters who hoped their daughter to be another Capitol Jewel.
And how she felt beautiful.. At the end... So amazing.
I really want a guy who can be the Haymitch to my Effie.

its lovely how he thinks she is beautiful without all the make-up and other shit, this really made me think about wheather beauty is skin deep...
p.s what does dichotomy mean?...but i get the drift anyway;)

Finally got around to reading this.
This was beautifully and heartbreakingly tender. :) Interesting also! When Effie mentioned the damage done by heels, I immediately thought of a ballerina. We get some nasty repercussions going en pointe all the time. All to look beautiful. What a lovely parallel. :D
I thoroughly enjoyed it, as per usual. Super cute and fluffy, and the feels are just flittering about with joyful sighs! Well, done!

I loved it so much! Well, I love all of your Hayffie feels, so it's hardly surprising. :D
I do cling to the idea that if Haymitch saw Effie without her makeup that he could probably pounce on her... :P

This was so beautiful. I like your take on the Capitol's obsession with fashion and make up; how that kind of a lifestyle is forced on the citizens whether they want to or not. Poor Effie...

I really wish this was more than a one-shot because it's fantastic! Amazingly sweet without being too fluffy. I loved it.

This is possible the most beautiful Hayffie fanfiction I have read yet. It made my stomach flutter and my heart swell. Her childhood stories were so perfectly in character, it was heartbreaking. I can imagine the Capitol doing exactly that. I am sure to recommend this to all the Hayffie fans I know.
