Beautiful work. :)
It's always a better story when Katniss isn't confused. xD
I kind of laughed when Peeta said he'd take whatever she's willing to give.. Because, come on, this is Peeta, Everdeen doesn't stand a chance. She'd give him everything and he won't ever need to ask. It's the Peeta Mellark effect. xD
They still have one year for before they're free from the Reaping though, and Katniss doesn't want to have children who'd just be reaped.. But then again, the first time Everdeen propositioned Mellark, she didn't really care about protection.. So yeah, I guess that should answer the baby question. Here's to hoping a rebellion still comes thru even without a Mockingjay so Everlark can have a happy ending. :)

That's what happens when you have a gentleman for a lover.. Peeta has successfully cock-blocked himself.. I wonder if Katniss would have been relieved though. I was kind of a double whammy, with Peeta stopping their little tryst and Prim walking in on them.. xD
Well, at least it was nice of Katniss to have returned his affections at first.. Circumstances were just really too complicated, not to mention embarrassing. xD

This story is so heart achingly beautiful and perfect and I will never get over it. It might be among the first Hunger Games fanfics I read months back, and it totally contributed in pulling me into the (most amazing) life ruining spiral that I currently enjoy today. I absolutely cannot believe I never left a review! (I'm the worst.)
I felt an urge to reread it post MJ and all those Gale-heavy reviews. I just wanted to revisit this story where Gale is OUT of the picture, but is still so respected for the character he is in the books and where his dynamic with Katniss is well-balanced. Of course it's such a strong well-developed Everlark romance sans reaping, and such a unique take on it.
Every aspect of this story gets me every time. Katniss needing to pay every debt? The comfort she gains from Peeta? Peeta seeing how thin she's gotten? Her feeling that he'll never really understand? The camaraderie they build together? The reluctance to get close despite everything?
It's so perfect and it feels so in-character. Ugh, this story is justification for the existence of fanfiction. It's so pretty and every line is just ughhh. So great. It hurts in the best way possible.

This is nice take on Peeta and Katiniss' relationship. The essence of the canon is still there..Katniss, a guarded human being, Peeta, otoh, warm and persistent.

It was really sweet.

Thatwas a great AU. Katniss seemed a little... easy to get but other than that great.

This story deserves and endless amount of praise. I've read it a number of times now and it never gets old. Absolutely beautiful.

I found this story after a long dry spell of lackluster fics. I cannot put in words how much I love this. The pacing, the writing style, plot, characterization, everything is perfect. You did such an amazing job, I really hope to see more like this in your work. Have you seen Missi Marie's There's A Part Of You That Cares For Me three-part series? I really love them and I find them and The Bough Unbowed to be similarly gorgeous in terms of plot, keeping in character and writing style. Im trying my best to put in words that Im giving you the highest compliment I can possibly give you did an amazing job!
