Re: Peeta or Gale?

Gale cuz she's known him for a long time and she barely knew Peeta until the Hunger Games.

Re: Peeta or Gale?

i think the girl's name is Marge, or Madge

& i want to say that the whole Gale would die for Katniss and Peeta thing woudn't surprise me, but most of what this woman writes does :smileytongue:

anyways i personally think (hope) that instead of dying, maybe Gale would go with the daughter (M---?) and possibly Katniss and Peeta; he's just so sweet(: but it probably wont play out like that.

 

Most likely someone is going to die... probably gale or peeta; i dont know what i would do if either of them did!

Re: Peeta or Gale?

Definitely Gale. They have this incredible bond that has always had them together and loving one another. I really hope that Katniss can just see Peeta as a good friend, brother figure, as opposed to someone for her to be with. I really just don't even like Peeta;

Vampires-and-Spongebob: You said that you seriously doubt that just watching someone will make you fall in love with them, but Peeta told Katniss that he started to love her the moment he heard her sing on the first day of school. They were 5, and for 11 years he's tried to work up the nerve to talk to her.

 

You also said that Katniss said in the book they had never really spoken to each other. That was before they went into the arena for The Games. Plus, Katniss saw Gale when she was 11(at the ceremony for their fathers after the mine explosion). They didn't officially meet until she was 12(he was 14)(in the woods), and that is when they became friends. So, Gale had seen her when she was 11(he was 13), and Peeta had seen her when they were 5. Gale became friends with her when she was 12(he was 14), and Peeta saves her life when she was 11(gave her bread to survive). Peeta has loved her since she was 5.

Plus...Peeta=Truly, Amazingly, Spectacularly, Awesome! :smileyvery-happy:

 

What I say is this, just because you meet someone in kindergarton don't mean you're gonny marry them. Pretty much every kid has a crush. Hormones. That might be very well true, but doesn't mean it's real love. You can have a crush on someone, but not love them.

 

That's what I meant. They never really talked and they probably wouldn't if it weren't for the Games. Of course they talked alot to each other in the Games, it's life or death! By years of friendship, I meant years of friendship with Gale. She might no have met him first, but in real life I seriousy doubt you meet your true best friend or husband/wife in your first 5 years of life. There may have been a few people, but for the most part I seriously doubt it. Once again I say, most warm-hearted people on Earth would give burnt bread to a girl dying of starvation. I know I would. Doesn't mean I love that person, it just means I'm not down-right cruel. Peeta did give her bread at eleven, but that didn't establish an amazing friendship. She met Gale at twelve and their friendship is wonderful! By giving her bread, I consider that not saving her live, but being a good person. I doubt Peeta has loved her since they were 5. Seriously? That is the cheesiest sandwhich I've ever heard about. I met people in Kindergarton. I made friends, I even migh of had a crush, but I did NOT fall in love and about 98.9% of the population will say the same thing. Peeta = scared person. Gale = brave person

Re: Peeta or Gale?

Well, I pick Gale cause she has known him longer and he also makes her more happier, she trusts him more then anyone. Peeta she didn't even really know until the Hunger Games. I mean yeah they shared a piece of bread, but that was really it. Gale also helped her get food and helped her family and his own survived. He's just amazing in my book haha.

Re: Peeta or Gale?

I'm caught between the two.

 

One one side Peeta has been through the Hunger Games with Katniss and tried to keep them both alive.

 

While on the other hand Katniss and Gale come from the same walks of life, both lost their fathers, and both know how to survive if all else fails.

Definitely PEETA!!!! He is sweet and would do anything for her. Why not choose him? I think it is kinda ironic that his parents own a bread shop and his name is peeta.. haha!!! Good laughs
