I think that Peeta is more of a presence in Katniss' life since the games. He is loyal and would do absolutely anything for her. I think Gale is her past and he will never be able to understand what she went through like Peeta can.

Well I'm Team Gale...I've only read the first one in the series (waiting for the second one to arrive at my mailbox!), even if Gale plays such a little part in it (at least directly, since Kat is always remembering stuff they used to do together). I do like Peeta, I mean, it's a bit hard not to, and I wouldn't be sad to my bones if Katniss ended up with him, but Gale is my favorite and there's nothing Peeta can do to change my mind; so my first reason to "why?" is, because Katniss and Peeta's relationship began at and because of the Games (I know they have a history, the boy with the bread and all, but still), she didn't have any other choice than to get closer and closer to him, I'm sure that if Gale was there too, she would have paired up with him instead; second: because, because of that Gale hasn't had the same opportunities to show his feelings towards Katniss(like I said, I haven't read Catching Fire yet, don't know if he did it already), Peeta is pretty cute with the whole "I've been in love with you since my father singled you out in a crowd" story, but Gale warms my heart a lot more with his unconditional friendship and devotion to Kat; and finally, and this is a crucial point: because I prefer a brunet guy to blond one :p In the end, I just want to see Katniss happy and well feed.

I haven't read the Hunger Games yet, so I am just keeping an open ear to what those who have read it have to say...

I'm kinda on "Team I Hope Everyone Makes It Out Alive" at this point...But, if I had to choose the best match for Katniss, I guess it'd have to be Gale. Peeta's too sweet and nice and Gale has the bad boy thing that (I) Katniss is attracted to. But, I'd be happy if they just don't die!

I am Team Gale because I think the fact that he doesn't have a huge role in the books so far makes him more mysterious and appealing to me. Plus, Katniss has known Gale pretty much her whole life, and I think they would have ended up together if the Games never got in the way.

peeta!

Team Peeta all the way. He's been right there for Katniss the entire time. Gale doesn't seem to love Katniss like Peeta doesn. It's more of a big brother/little sister thing going on.

KatieDoll said...

TEAM PEETA FTW. He cares so much about Katniss and is doing everything he can to protect her. And Gale .. he might have feelings for her and vice versa, but up against Peeta I just don't understand why there's even a competition.

Peeta. I still don't understand Gale's character, because pretty much all we know about him is Katniss' memories. We have very few scenes where he's right there "onscreen" so to speak. I like Peeta because he's so good at handling the media and he's just such a good person, while still being believable.

Does she have to end up with one of them? Maybe after all she has been through she needs a few years to decompress before she worries about love. Guys can be a noble lone hero, why do girls have to end up with somebody?

Gale - I like to say cause hunter beats baker, but really its because I love the way he takes care of his family.

Becky said...

Gale. I think he hasn't been given a chance, and I somehow don't like the pathetic follower Peeta has been. I still like Peeta though, and would be sad to see him hurt.

Team Peeta all the way!

Team Peeta!!!! I mean Gale is the nice friend that's always been there since she was little and he's cutea and all but he had his chance and never took it until she went to the Hunger Games. I really like Peeta a lot more, I think he will do anything for her. That's my opinion. =)

Ella Press said...

This is a never ending discussion, and I'll never quite understand it.
I just can't see Katniss ending up with Gale. Yes, they have much more history together, but I've yet to see a true proof of his love towards her. He's done things for her, but nothing as important as what Peeta's done. I've nothing against people who claim themselves to be Team Gale, but really, he hasn't been around much for us to have to worry about him being a competition to Peeta. Maybe if Collins decided to include him more in Mockingjay, and we see him actually do something big that says he wants her...

Ella Press said...

I didn't say I thought he didn't want her, S. Just that I can't get the way he shows that he loves her. Sometimes, I'm sure Peeta loves her more, and would back down, step out, or w/e, if she ultimately decided to be Gale. Which I'm thinking, is what'll happen.

You wouldn't let your daughter date Peeta? That's a little too harsh, don't you agree?

Ella Press said...

I'll be looking forward to your post explaining why, then.

wow i honestly don't understand how Katniss could even think of picking just one.

Gale has always been there for her through thick and then ever since her father died. he takes care of not only his family but hers too. i wish that he really was her cousin so it wouldn't be that big of a deal. The fact that even after he saw everything that happened throughout the games with Peeta and her and still decided that he wasn't giving up and kissed her makes me love his character all the more. Katniss clearly love his back because i don't know many people who would get whipped in the face for someone they do not care about. but hey, i could be wrong...

Peeta: the boy with bread even as a child loved her. before he even knew who he really was and risk getting into trouble by his mother just to give her bread for her family to survive. If not for him she might not have even met Gale and her family would have died long ago. He continues to risk his life for her and she feels the same about him as she does Gale only its somehow different. He risked his life countless times to save her and she did the same for him.

They are both amazing to me and choosing between them is an impossible task for me and i hope that she makes the right choice.

P.s. thanks kate for getting me hooked!!!

You guys know what? I just had a Peeta vs. Gale discussion with Monster. He said, "Gale is most like me, how could I not like him best." Maybe that explains why I'm so staunchly Team Gale?

I am Team Gale all the way. Gale is more of a survivor than Peeta-He shoots deer and snares rabbits for crying out loud! He's been Katniss's best friend for four years and they have a lot more in common than Peeta and her.
