Author's Note:

Hello all! A few reviews and a large number of story alerts have let me know that people expect more to be added to this story. Sorry, it does end here. But if it helps, I will tell you that in my mind it ends up in the same place as the original—with the berries. The Games themselves would obviously play out differently with Katniss and Peeta working as a team from the beginning, but I don't really have any interest in writing about that. I have several other Hunger Games stories running around my head and I'm eager to move on to those.

Thank you to all for the reviews and alerts and favoriting! I will confess to checking my email umpteen times a day to look for more and I get a little thrill every time one shows up.
