Ok so I started reading your humongous "one shot" story several months ago (last year)...seriously you have rivaled word count wise with a couple of the "a song of ice and fire" series (game of thrones) books ;). I think this was the first story I read in fanfiction where Johanna was the one telling the story. It has seriously been a pleasure to read this awesome grand tale of an adventure you have told. I plan on reading it again from beginning to end since it is complete. I laughed my ass off at some of your descriptions of scenes like Katniss and Peeta kissing and comparing it to the kiss in the princess bride. Some of the character descriptions if I recall correctly (brian looking like josh hutcherson)...which is funny, because josh hutcherson is who plays peeta in the movies. Though I totally never envisioned Peeta looking like josh, personally when I read the books. Anywho I am pretty happy with how your story ended, full of HEA's.

Oh my goodness, this fic was so great! I waited until you finished it to read it in one go, and I stayed up and inhaled it in record time. I loved the premise to tell Everlark through Jo's perspective, I cried my eyeballs out along with Jo during the funeral, and loved the HEA ending for Jo/Brue. I also feel like I understand your Tumblr blog better now, with food porn and men in kilts (not that I didn't already appreciate it!). Sorry, I'm terrible at reviewing, but I wanted to let you know I thought you did a great job and I enjoyed your story immensely. Thank you for sharing your writing!

This was my all time fav FanFiction! I loved reading it from Jo's point of view and she was just as I imagined soo funny! I loved the way you brought all the characters together and the story was so well written that I laught and cried with each of them. Please write some an epilogue like 5/10years down the line! You are an amazing writer don't ever stop writing!

I started reading this story last night, and had a hard time putting my laptop down and leaving the story in order to go to work. I cried during the funeral scene. He was my favourite character, and I had truly felt his presence throughout the story. Although I realize the plot importance of his death, to bring brue and jo together, I really didn't want to believe he was gone. You are a brilliant writer. Keep up the amazing work.

It feels so weird that this is over; I really want to go back and read those first few chapters again. Congratulations, this was a wonderful fic that I always looked forward to reading. The character development was absolutely phenomenal, possibly the most detailed and intense within this fandom. Bravo, this was wonderfully written. Are there any hopes for a possible "In the future" type of drabble/one-shot? It's going to be hard let go of this story!

I found your story towards the last half and am so sorry I didn't discover it sooner. I really enjoyed Jo's personality and jokes. The puns and alliterations made me so happy as I read your chapters. I fell in love with Brue and Angus right along side Jo. Difficult times in RL led me to fanfiction, tumblr, and your beautiful story. Thank for taking all the time to research and write this gem. I miss it already and know when things are bad I will comeback and read it again.

Wow. That's a lot of research. Good luck on your original story.

What a great ending. Congratulations on completing your story.

I have to say that I don't think whatever words I put here will accurately convey how perfectly and beautifully you brought together all the couples in this story for their HEAs. Each one was so fitting for the couples, based on the little we know from canon for some of them. (Well, and not killing finnick, thanks for that) I know this was more Jo's story than Everlark, but how you had Katniss overcome her commitment phobia was just brilliant. And for Jo and Brue to drunk-wed and then decide to give it a go…just, yeah. And I might be watching Outlander again. So…brava, my friend. Congrats on this amazing story and journey you took us on.

I can't decide if I'm ecstatic or distraught. Followed this from the beginning and loved every second. Squealed outloud with every update and read to the early hours of the morning. What I thought would be a lighthearted, comedy based fic turned out to be something touching and so in depth that I began applying and comparing it to my own life. Thank you for Girls Night Out and sharing your talent!

Of course Jo would finish it out by getting married on a boat while drunk. How absolutely fitting.
Congratulations on finishing this wonderful, hilarious, heartbreaking, completely original, extraordinary behemoth of a fic. And the food porn was amazing too!
I'm so sad this is over. It's been so much fun to read and get to know your characters and watch them all grow together. Thank you.

This story was amazing. I so enjoyed your characterization of Jo. I laughed with her, yelled at her and maybe sniffled a time of two. I loved her relationships with Madge, Annie, Katniss and Gale. It really was so nice to see how it evolved and changed and strengthened over the years. I so wish I had gone to college now just for this friendship aspect of it. Jo and Peeta were so interesting together, especially the funeral scene. I think that was the first time I really thought about how alike they were, what kind of support they were for each other without the other characters. I really like Brue and Angus. Angus made me smile, he made me believe in living life. Brue made me believe that love was worth a chance. I think I had forgotten that over the years. Whoa, this turned into a serious post and that was not my intention. Let's stop that now.
Anyway, I enjoyed the story and the food. If you have the recipes posted somewhere, I'd like a link if you don't mind. I'm always hungry when I finish reading a chapter. I'm going to miss the food almost as much as I'm going to miss Jo.
Thanks for sharing your talent.

Oh S, I enjoyed every moment, whether it was just reading (and laughing at all of your silly 80's references), or helping you work through a tough patch of dialogue. I am so happy this story brought us together, and I can't wait for our next adventure!
| Famousfremus chapter 45 . 4/6/2015
'Lusty Mollusk' should have been the name of the boat. ;) I am so ridiculously happy with this ending, and that I stumbled across this story so long ago. Your vision brought them all to life so vividly that I feel like I was there with them for the ride. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing tale with the rest of us!

Now that I'm back from my vacation and free of safety concerns about posting on public social media, I can admit that I stopped in the middle of the Disney California Adventure theme park to read the final chapter as soon as the notification came across my phone. So, you know, you get at least one vote for "better than Disneyland". ;-)
