Anywhere Review Reply
I received a review on FF.net for Chapter 4 of Anywhere I Would Have Followed You that asked me to please reply and as I got to writing out my explanation, I began to think that there might be others out there who have similar questions, or just might want to know my writing process or where I’m getting my inspiration from, so I decided to cross post the reply over here. That way, everyone can see where I’m coming from if they so desire. It’s not that I care about this getting a response – feel free to skip over this if you want, the story will still make sense to you without reading it – but I know some fans like to soak up all the info they can about a fic (I know I do) and when an author explains they want to be a part of it, so I’m posting here.
It’s under the read more because it got a little lenghty
Anonymous asked: I really hope that when they talk in the next chapter, Peeta doesn't spend a lot of time apologizing for all the stuff Johanna and Madge imagined that he did, and actually stands up for himself and points out that he didn't do anything wrong by Katniss. Can't wait!
I can’t tell you what their conversation will entail, but I hope you like it!

I’m excited for you to read the next chapter. Let’s hope it doesn’t take forever to get it written.
asked: I cried. Worth it. Another wonderful chapter. Thank you.
I’m sorry you cried but I’m glad that you think it was worth it. Thanks for the message, Fnur!
asked: I just screamed and threw my reader across my bed. I need more. I am so greedy for your words. He's back! It's another party! I am freaking out can you tell from all my exclamation points? Everlark full on spiral. I could cry I need more. So good honey. This story hurts so good. Cannot wait and also willing to make ritual sacrifices for the next update. Okay I need to go do some yoga breathing. Loved it and you, huge hugs. <3
Ritual sacrifices, huh? Just kidding! Go on ahead and Everlark spiral. I know you all deserve the chance to do that after what you’ve been through with this fic. Thank you for the sweet note, buns! You certainly know how to make a girl smile :)
Anonymous asked: That anywhere update totally made my day! Definitely one of the best pieces of THG fanfic I've ever read. Your writing is simply outstanding, very true to character. I first fell in love with your writing when I discovered do not go gentle and I've been hooked on every single one of your stories ever since :)
You are such a sweetheart, anon! Thank you so much for the note! I’m glad to know that you like the fic and it’s so sweet of you to say that it made your day :)
asked: Okay so I just got sucked in and read Anywhere I would have followed you and oh my god, the angst. You are such a talented storyteller and writer! I'm now just on the edge of my seat that they're finally back in the same place!! I can't wait to see how this goes and to see what the heck Peeta has been up to.
I’m glad to hear that you liked it! I’m excited to write this chapter and give Peeta some attention. His story is pretty interesting in my opinion so I hope everyone likes it as much as I do. Thanks for reading and leaving the sweet note :)
asked: The feels! I've really only read two of your works that come to mind immediately ( Brokensheartville and AWIWHFY) and the heart-wrenching twists to Everlark HEA deliver feels! They are noticeable and memorable!
Aww thank you! You’re so sweet :) Thanks for answering the meme!
Anonymous asked: Good god that chapter... I want more so bad. I'm so happy that Peeta is back! Update soon please?
I can’t promise quick updates, but I can try my hardest, anon! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed it though!
