She laughed then at his words, and it was a musical, joyous thing to hear. The sight of Miss Everdeen smiling—and this was a genuine smile, not one tinged with sadness or regret—made her beauty shine all the more. Wearing her dress of flames, smiling at his words, she became as radiant as the sun. His hand gently cupped her chin and he leant in towards her, pressing his lips to the corner of her smile, before he enveloped her in his arms and rested his forehead against hers. “This is how I wish to see you,” he whispered to her. “How I should like to remember you. Smiling. Laughing. Always.”

“Then try,” she whispered back. “Try and remember.”

Chapter 8 of The Colour of Heartbreak is now up on FFnet!

Now also up on AO3! Sorry it’s taken ages to do, and thanks to my kind anon for reminding me to do it!

Sorry it’s taken so long to get to this! Anyway - I did one for The Colour of Heartbreak not long ago - it’s right here.

And so instead, I give you this. From before Sabotaged Heart. And I’m sorry. Please don’t hate me, you know he gets a happy ending eventually, after all….!

Thank you for this. So sad but lovely to know it will all turn around for this character.

No worries! I’ll always love revisiting that world, even if it means being that horrible to poor Peeta ;)

Are we going to see the big family reunion soon? Please? X

I promise that it’s coming eventually! I’ve never had so much trouble writing anything as I have with that chapter!

Gah. That hurts! Stop it!

Poor Peeta. :(

Sorry, ladies! I know, I’ve been so horrible to him, and believe me, I’ve thought about those two-and-a-half years between his accident and meeting Katniss a lot. It wouldn’t make for a particularly pleasant prequel… :\

JESS. JS&MN is so bloody good it's no wonder TCoH is as spectacular as it is so far. I'm two-thirds of the way through (just beginning V.III now) and I'm so keen to see what from the book you'll continue to incorporate and what will follow your storyline and how the two connect. EEEEE. Thank you for the push to read this brilliant novel - although my Everlark-heart fancies your spin just a liiiiiiiittle bit more. ;) xoxo

Isn’t it just amazing?!? So…. Part 3? Heheeee! You’ve got my favourite bit still to come! (Minor spoilers under the cut - but only for those of you haven’t read Jonathan Strange!)

MARGARET THATCHER TRIED TO THROW THE MINISTER OF MAGIC OUT THE WINDOW.

SHE WASN’T CALLED THE IRON LADY FOR NOTHING.

I’m sure at least for 20 years we will continue to find minor details like this about Harry Potter series

Guys, you just made my day… I’m going to laugh for a whole week thanks
