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.
| Norbert's Mom chapter 45 . 4/10
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
'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!
| ImagoBeginsAgain chapter 46 . 4/5
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". ;-)
| Reader701 chapter 44 . 4/5
I've waited a while to read this chapter because I wanted to wait until things were resolved - I couldn't take another cliffhanger! The funeral was beautiful and made me cry. I'm glad to see Jo realizing the truths in her life and letting her guard down.
| Prizz chapter 45 . 4/4
I've read the whole story again coz i dont want to part with it yet. I want to prolong the moment. This is the only fic Ive read thats not solely Everlark. I enjoyed every character, even OCs and their lives from Jo' POV. They all have come a long way. Im so glad they are all happy in this ending. It is well deserved.
Thank you for sharing this with us. This is an achievement! Just look at that word count! :-) I hope to read from you again soon. Kudos!

AHHHH! I love this story so much and I'm a little devastated that this story is over. Thank you for writing this beauty! Your writing and this story is absolutely brilliant! I loved every moment of reading and rereading this story and this story if hands down in my top 10 favorite HG fanfics. I loved how you portrayed the characters and I loved your parallels and adaptions of the canon storyline, especially in chapters 40-42. NGL, I don't have a tumblr account but I started trolling you tumblr(s) looking for hints of updates and I stayed for the smut. I really hope that even though the story is over this isn't the last time we see your GNO crew. I can't wait for what you have coming for us next and I'm so excited for PAM and The Hunter!
p.s. Your number and creativity of euphemisms for the P and the V were impressive and highly entertaining. I applaud you!
| Varin chapter 45 . 4/3
You did it. It's finished and it's awesome! You did an excellent job of keeping the core of the HG characters' personalities. Your original characters were not MarySues. They were developed and fleshed out. (I normally hate romances between OCs and canons, but I adore Jo and Brue.)
There were times I cried my eyes out and other times I laughed until I couldn't breathe. More laughter than tears, definitely. Thank you for all your hard work and I hope you keep writing. I'll definitely want to read it. (Especially if you want to write up Peeta's recipes. They sounded delicious.)
