Team Peeta or Team Gale (spoilerish)

I just finished ready Hunger Games and Catching Fire this weekend. I swore I was gonna pace myself...but once I started I couldn't stop!!

Excuse me Suzanne Collins and Scholastic Publishers...send us the Third book now or there will be an uprising in all flippin' 13 districts....yeah I said it 13!!!
Until we get that book they are overnighting to us let's discuss....
Team Peeta or Team Gale?
No contest right? Wrong! We need to look at this from all angles.
They both love her...they've both loved her for a long time. Neither one did anything about that...why? Did Peeta think she was spoken for? Did Gale think she already knew? I think they are both lame-o for not saying anything until it was too late. Let this be a lesson to us all. If there is something you want...go for it! Before they put you in an arena and make you fight until death.
mmmkay moving on...
One of the things I love about my relationship is that I always feel safe when I'm with My Rock. I know that, if he had to, he could protect me from Lions and Tigers and Bears (oh my). Now if I was Katpiss (yeah I said it..but for the record Heather said it first) would I feel safe with Peeta or with Gale? um duh...Gale. right? He hunts and kills things and ...Or maybe Peeta because he's proven time and time again that it's all about her and keeping her alive and happy. But then you prefer a lover or a fighter? Or both? Hello Finnick! oops...let's not go there.
Gale works in the mines...she never sees him....he could get hurt like her Dad...leaving her poor heart to suffer. Peeta is in the Victor's Village with her. He makes her cheesy bread. He makes her bad dreams go away by holding her while she sleeps.
Gale and her are like one. They hunt together...take care of their families. They've suffered through a lot together...they know each other so well. Peeta's never had to struggle like them. He can't understand.
I just feel so bad for both of them and her too I guess. To have two guys be in love with her. But she irritates me like Bella did.
So back to the question....
Team Peeta or Team Gale?
You tell me!


  1. I'm all for Peeta. Even though Katniss and Gale have been through so much together, so have Peeta and Katniss. Gale and Katniss came together out of necessity. Peeta was willing to risk his life for hers from the very beginning. Even with the original giving of the bread, he sacrificed a beating for giving her some bread. I dunno...That's just my kind of guy, I guess. :-)

  2. Team Peeta all the way. Gale is the best friend. I didn't see him volunteering to save and protect Katniss...

    Uhm after the book arrives express mail to you, please forward it my way. I too wanted to pace myself reading but blew it. Giant Fail. Oh well, it was worth it!

  3. PEETA!!!!!!! I just love him. A lot. Gale I feel like is more of an older brother type. I WANT THE BOOK TO COME OUT NOWWWW!!

  4. I am team Gale.....Please Don't hurt me

  5. okay i didn't read this entire post because i was afraid of spoilers but let me just tell you that i am SO EXCITED to start reading these books!

    i've heard great things!!

  6. Ok...I had to think long and hard (twss) about what i was gonna say, and came up with zilch. Anyway - i'm Team Gale, and let me tell you why. You asked "lover or a fighter?" those particular circumstances where its Survival of the Fittest, you're going to want someone who can add value to your life. Catpiss was brought to Peeta due to extenuating circumstances and was always having to take care of him and he was a liability. Wherefore, Gale - proved time and time again that he could hold his own. Gale may be biding his time of not making a move, but thats because he knows Catpiss and that she's not a very emotional person. I guarantee that if she had not been called to The Games, in a few years...they would've hooked up. There, I've said my peace.


I LOVE reading your thoughts!! :)
