This whole post is going to be rather spoiler-y, so if you haven't read Mockingjay yet, proceed at your own risk.
I was over at Hello Giggles (totally awesome site, by the way, and you should all check it out) and one of the bloggers was talking about, "5 Fictional Couples That Were Doomed From the Start" and it got me thinking: why are Katniss and Gale not meant to be together? Or, better yet, why in the world are Katniss and Peeta meant to be together?
I'm totally Team Gale, but I'm also anti-Peeta. Peeta is kinda pathetic, he mopes, can't take care of himself, gives up before anything starts, and I can't imagine why Katniss ends up with him in the end. Gale, on the other hand, is ready to fight for a better life, he is willing to make a difference, he is ready to protect his family and Katniss' whatever may come. He is strong, smart, and has a bond with Katniss that she has with no one else.
What does Katniss have with Peeta? She takes care of him, she watches out for him, he relies on her … he is like her child. Sigh, I'm not venting, really I'm not, I'm just not satisfied with the reasoning given for why Katniss ends up with Peeta … in reality she should have ended up alone.
Regardless of everything I've just said, in reality we are all Team Finnick!
… and because I'm sassy like that::
I'm Team Peeta. Mainly because he's played by my favorite actor. But that's beside the point. I think he's sweet and really cares for Katniss. Peeta doesn't know how to do all the stuff that Katniss and Gale know just because he never had to learn and live like that, so that's partly why he is the way he is. But yeah, that's why I like Peeta. He's also funny (and a little sarcastic) and has great stage presents.ReplyDelete
Okay, I can see what you're saying … but do you agree with the comment that we are all really just "Team Finnick" in the end? I'm not the one who originated that, this is what the blog-o-sphere is saying :)Delete
Not really. I mean, I like him and all, but I'm Team Peeta all the way! :)Delete
I like Finnick's whole story. He is sweet and charming, he loves an imperfect girl … and he is quite gorgeous (in the movie, those dimples, sheesh).Delete
Gotta be team gale... katniss shouldn't of ended up with peetaReplyDelete
I 'm definitely Team Peeta !
