This time it's djarn's picrew. I may make the boys with it, who knows.
So I was reading Nightfall, I just felt so emotional. Sophie and Amy's relationship in that book, even though it's short lived, is so sweet and loving. It made me cry really hard, and I rarely cry for books. And the moments between Sophie and her human mom made me tear up too. *sniffs*
*cough cough* I am currently *checks PDF I am reading Flashback on* 357 pages into Flashback, and boy, now I know why people say this is where the plot of Kotlc deteriorates. For me, the shadow attack happened on page 60, so basically 297 pages in the healing center, with occasional visits from Keefe. The plot is getting nowhere. But, that's just my opinion.

Dear Diary(can you believe people actually use that),
So, I started this little diary thing to document my new life as a human. Yes you heard right, I’m basically a human now ever since I left the lost cities. Amy’s been helping me out, but I can’t stay with someone who reminds me so much of Foster. I’ve been able to talk people into giving me food and fluids with my new ability. I’m wondering if Foster read my letter yet. I hope she won’t come after me, but if I know Foster, she won’t even think before looking for me. Amy taught me how to be human, and showed me the new fashion styles and what to wear to look human. Ro hasn’t found me yet and I hope it takes her as long as possible to find me. Ro will strangle me if she ever finds me. Aaaaaanyway, yesterday I got in a fight with this cashier lady because I told her that Foster was cuter than she was. The lady didn’t know who Foster was, but she went crazy trying to destroy me because I didn’t think she was pretty. Oh, and you’re probably wondering why I can speak and write in english. I’m sort of a polyglot now, so yeah. I don’t really know where to go from here, I guess I’m a wanderer, but I’m not one of those homeless dudes that sleeps on dirty blankets because that’s disgusting.
It’s also SO cold. I need to wear this thing called a coat to stay warm instead of a cloak or cape. Amy says that it’ll start getting warmer in the next few months, and I can’t wait for warm weather. :)
Right now I’m in a hotel and learning about humans from the outernet(?). Did you know that humans eat meat and kill one and other animals on purpose! Humans are monsters(no offense to Amy and Sophie.)!
...Amy found me...again.
Amy and I just had a talk, again. Amy knows that Foster and the others want me to go back, and I do really miss...Sophie. I can’t go back, I don’t want to hurt anyone, especially the people I love. No matter how many times Amy begs, orders, yells, etc. I’m not going back, I can’t go back.
Please no passive aggressive comments or ship war posting in the thread!
Yes, Sophie knew elves were basically immortal. Since she definitely remembered that wikipedia site correctly, they were biologically immortal. So while elves couldn't die from old age, they could still be killed.
Sometimes Sophie wondered if there was even a difference between humans and elves. That maybe, humans just hadn't lived long enough for their ears to sharpen without the medicine. In the terms of evolution, they could have evolved without skills or abilities.
It wasn't like she would ever know.
She wasn't going to watch Amy die without trying everything. She would never let herself outlive her sister. It wasn't meant to be that way.
"Prattle for your thoughts, Foster?" Keefe asked, settling down on the clear crystal bench beside her. The offered candy rested between two slender fingers.
Sophie snatched the sweet and stuffed it stubbornly into her mouth, letting it melt on her tongue.
It was sort of like peanut brittle coated in caramel, a thin milk chocolate layer in the middle.
Keefe opened the purple velvet bag, pulling out a jackalope.
"What should we name it," he pondered. "Bottled up frustration? Repressed sadness? Oh, I know! Obstinate Ollie! You two have something in common!"
Sophie glared, pushing down laughter.
"It's Bun-Bun junior," she stated quietly. Keefe tilted his head, eyes softening.
Keefe waited for a beat.
"Wanna talk about it?"
Sophie drew her knees to her chest.
Not ever dreaming of pressuring Sophie, Keefe put an arm around her shoulders, letting the exhausted girl lean into his chest.
One minute. Two.
"I don't want to outlive Amy," Sophie whispered. It was a topic she'd buried in her mind, only to resurface when she was at her lowest.
Keefe bit his lip.
"I don't know if you will," he rasped. "I don't know if either of us will."
And they would have to come to terms with it. Because even if they died, the cause was big enough to carry on. As long as they went down fighting. It didn't have to be with dignity. Or even with grace. Heck, everyone was afraid. But the Neverseen wasn't going to stop for a lunch break.
Honestly? This was so much bigger than the Neverseen. Or even the Council. It was about every single being in this world. There was not a single one who could go unaffected, whether they knew it or not.
This was a battle against prejudice. Against discriminatory, idiotic views. It was for everyone. It was worth the fight.
The Neverseen would always use Amy as leverage as long as she was alive. Maybe even longer. Sometimes, Sophie thought it might be better if she just forgot.
Keefe pressed a kiss to Sophie's head.
Her hand tightened around his.
"Can I cry now," Keefe asked, choked up.
His only response was Sophie's strangled sob as she hid her face in his arms.
YES I KNOW THERE'S NO NOSE OR MOUTH BUT I AM A TERRIBLE ARTIST SO-
First of all, we get to how much Amy loves Sophie. In the first book we didn’t get to see much of her, because Sophie drugged her family to erase they’re memories. In the first book when Sophie went to hug her, it made her uncomfortable. We also got to see how determined Amy is. Elf powers or not, Amy will do anything to protect her parents and Sophie.
In my opinion, Keefe seemed really shallow up until this book. Especially with the short story, we got to see how much Keefe wanted to do whatever he could for Sophie. And also how much he helps Sophie through her parents getting kidnapped and stuff.
Dex. We are all aware of the infamous kiss, but I feel like was an awakening for Dex. At first he isolated himself from the rest of the group before he saw how much Sophie was struggling with her parents being in the custody of the Neverseen. He actually helped SO much.
Fitz, was a source that Sophie could vent to and he also was very kind to her and constantly brought her gifts to try and cheer her up. He also put her in her grumpy for day on end.
✨Ro✨ So Ro is just pretty great and she will always help keefe out with his love life, even if he doesn’t want it. She is also a great source of humor.
Thank you for listening to my TED talk :D
This is Sokeefe btw, I'm just trying to incorporate Sophie's crush on Fitz into this. Also, Sophie was a bit annoying to Keefe at the beginning of kotlc.
I slip my fingers out from my sister Amy's hand and watch as her brown curls bounce with excitement.
"Mom said that the Hunger Games are in two days, and so we're going to have a goose to celebrate that me or you weren't picked!" she grins, her big green eyes brimming with excitement.
Pleased she wasn't annoying me, I don't bother correcting her grammar or telling her we might get picked whether she said we would or not. "Yes." I said. "That'll be fun. Where will she get this goose though?" I ask.
"Mommy said you kill it and get it from the woods" What?!
"Tell Mommy I object, and she has to kill it herself."
"But Sophieeeeeeee you know Mom's too sad and depressied to do it herself!" Amy retorted.
Ever since my father died, Mother had been way different. She was almost a robot going through her daily scedule. I couldn't remember the last time she told me I love you.
"Why can't you do it?"
"It's bad for the environment when you kill- OW!"
I look up and see Amy sprawled on the grass, her basket of berries upside down and a boy about my age, seventeen, standing there looking surprised.
"Sorry." he says. He has messy blonde hair and ice blue eyes. His blue fur jacket hangs loosely around his waist and his half buttoned polo shirt has gold accents around the sleeves and collar.
He reaches down with a large hand to my sister, but I push it away.
"My sister." I whisper. "Not yours. And no, I am not lost."
"Hi." Amy says, grabbing the newcomer's hand. "I'm Amy Foster and this is my sister, Sophie. We're in District Twelve if you haven't noticed how boring and dirty it is here. And yes, we're lost and it's all her fault because she was too busy looking at me to notice we were in the woods."
I groaned internally and glanced at the boy.
"I'm Mr. Awesome." he says winking at me.
"Oh come on, Amy." I snap, dragging her too her feet. "This is a District one person. Or Two. Notice how he doesn't care enough to button his golden shirt up all the way, even though it shows his chest hair. Also notice how his eyes are way too adorable to be natural."
"Ooooooooohhhhh-" Amy says as I march her away from Keefe.
"I KNOW YOU LIKE ME FOSTER!" he calls. "UNHAPPY HUNGER GAMES! AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR, EVEN THOUGH YOU WON'T BE IN THE GAMES IN THE FIRST PLACE!"
Don't jinx it. I thought.
But it was too late.

Hunger Games, but with Sophie as Katniss, Keefe as Peeta, and Fitz as Gale.
Oh, and Amy as Primrose, and grief-stricken Edaline as the mom.
I just watched Hunger Games last night, so it's on my mind.
Also, IDK which catagory this goes in, so I'm just going with General. So sorry if I put it in the wrong place!
1. Sokeefe married- sophie and and Keefe stay at hotels when they go places so because sophie wants to have the experience.
2. When Amy/Natalie is older she brings sophie home and says that she is a college friend so sophie can talk with her human parents
3. Dex and Linh name their kid Cinna because keefe suggested it and they thought it was pretty but keefe just suggested it because Linh and Dex are both cinnamon rolls.
4. Sophie introduces Tam to rock music and Tam gets obsessed and Linh catches him singing and dancingn in him room so she uses that at blackmail to get a new pet.
