So, funny/sad story: I LOST MY USB. And I had my whole life stored on that mother trucker. So now, when I replace it, I will be all, "Who is dis bitch trying to replace MAH BABY?" And then I will remember that it actually is a replacement for my baby. And then I will be SADPANTS.

What does this have to do with anything? Nothing, besides the heartbreak of trying to replace something or someone you love. Freeverse, Gale. For the record, I disapprove of Gale/Katniss. Gale in general.

REVIEW. I DEMAND IT. BUT IN A POLITE AND WITTY MANNER.


almost her


she's smiling at you

and she's pretty

but not gorgeous

thin,

but not too skinny

small,

but only in size,

just how you like them.

so you can do this, right?

she's just your type,

brunette, huge eyes

and determined

and you've always found that sexy.

so why can't you do this?

of course you can.

SO DO IT.

start with a smile,

some jokes

and a heated discussion

it's easy, right?

after all, you have a lot of practice at this

(just not any success -

at least where it mattered)

but ignore that.

come on, reel her in

use that pretty-tough boy smile

she likes you, you like her

it'll work out

after all, she's just your type

actually, she's better than your type

because she likes you back

which is more than your type ever did

but no,

you're here,

and you're talking to her

not her

and she is gorgeous

and you can almost imagine

a bow on her shoulder

wearing an old leather jacket

hair tied back into a braid

and you can almost imagine

it's her.
