Gale or Peeta? Who would you choose?

2Babbe2
huhtikuu 26, 2010, 7:30pm

Peeta definitely he is just so much nicer and a better guy besides Gale is more of a brother to Kat not like Peeta. Plus Peeta would do anything for her even more than Gale would.

Not to start a whole argument, but I go for Gale. He has basically been there from the start,and they obviously both know how to get along. And remember the last chapter from Catching Fire? When Katniss says that Gale is the only person in the world that could not reject, block out or ignore?
And anyway, when Gale tels her that he got her sister and mother out,he doesn'y say anything about his own family, I believe. I hope not, but if he has just basically *sacrificed* his own family to save Katniss's, it conveys a strong point across: Gale cares for Katniss. Genuinely.

Yes, go ahead and argue against me, I'm in the mood for a good argument.

Oh my, I've just had a thought. What if Collins kills them BOTH! NOOOOOO!!!!
If that happens, then, then... then...I don't know what then. I will probaby die. Or at the very least, faint.

Alsohave you read the series Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins ?

I'm completely torn. I can't put up an argument for either of them because then it would seem like I'm going for one rather than the other. But I find that while I'm reading the books I'm rooting for Peeta. But then again, that could just be because you get to see him more than Gale. In the end, I'm undecided.

6Raevyn87

I choose Peeta. As Babbe2 stated, Gale is more like a brother to Katniss and Peeta would give his life for her. I can't remember exactly, I might be thinking of something else, but I think somewhere in one of the books Katniss even states that Gale would not give his life to save her but Peeta would.

7Puppydogluver
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 10:36am

I agree with Raevyn87. Peeta loves her, but she only sorta loves him... also, Gale she likes, but it isn't love. So I think she will start loving one or the other.

8sarah-e
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 12:57pm

I think I would choose Peeta because he's such a good guy and he's so devoted to her. I think Katniss will see Gale as more of a hero than Peeta, but I'm not sure how that will affect her feelings toward them. I'm torn!

9Puppydogluver
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 6:51pm

I know!

10LitChick26
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 7:16pm

I would definitely say Peeta. Not only is he my favorite character, but I think he is good for Katniss.He is completely devoted to her and is willing to do anything for her, as we saw in both books. It will break my heart if she starts falling in love for Gale, because Peeta and Katniss deserve each other after all they have been through.

Unrelated comment, but how weird are there names?? Katniss, Peeta, and Gale?? How did she think of these names!?

11MissTeacher
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 7:46pm

I'd go for Gale, because I'm still not thoroughly convinced the Peeta is all he's cracked up to be. I feel like he's hiding something very sinister, whether he knows it or not. I actually don't think he knows it. Gale is simple, straightforward, and comfortable. Nothing wrong with that when your world's falling apart.

12FantasyGirl2
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 7:51pm

About the names...
I looked them a while ago, and ramdom people from random websites say:

From: http://community.scholastic.com/scholastic/board/print?board.id=Hunger_Games&amp...

Peeta- (pita) bread. Because he is the baker's son.

Madge - Badge? Badge being a slang for a policeman. Madge's father is the upper force/higher class type.

Cinna - Cinema, or theater. Cinna seems very dramatic and charismatic.

Effie Trinket - A trinket is something useless, and Effie just sounds cool.

Prim - Short for primrose, yes, but also meaning proper. Ever heard the phrase "prim and perfect"?

Glimmer - The sound fit her personality well. I think that instead of a meaning, the name simply meant to degrade the Capitol lapdog districts. Katniss comments that the names they give kids in the rich districts are ridiculous.

Gale: a strong wind

Katniss...cat...as strong as a cat? has sharp senses like a cat?
Also doesn't Gale call her Katnip: catnip: A hairy aromatic perennial herb (Nepeta cataria) in the mint family, native to Eurasia and containing an aromatic oil to which cats are.

13FantasyGirl2
huhtikuu 27, 2010, 7:59pm

>11 MissTeacher:. MissTeacher, I totally agree with you.

And also, Peeta says he fell in love with Katniss because of her voice. Huh? I really don't think that's good grounds in which to fall in love with someone, but that's just me. I feel like you can get used to someone's voice, and then the love is *poof* gone. And he loves her because of her voice. That is a genitic thing she got from her father. Peeta fell in love with he because of her voice, not because of the kind of person she is. Gale, however, loves Katniss, and not because of her voice.

14Puppydogluver
huhtikuu 28, 2010, 8:13am

I think they both love her. I don't know which one she will fall for though. What do you think?

15FantasyGirl2
huhtikuu 29, 2010, 12:48pm

Mmm hmm...

16Babbe2
huhtikuu 29, 2010, 6:22pm

Thats pretty cool I never thought about the names and how she came up with them

17Babbe2
huhtikuu 29, 2010, 6:23pm

Oh thats something to think about. Well if she falls for Gale Im gonna be SO mad!!!!!!!!

18Puppydogluver
huhtikuu 29, 2010, 9:38pm

19FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 4, 2010, 8:12pm

Hmm... 6 ppl said Peeta...
2 said Gale, including myself...

Seems like Gale got outvoted...

But I still think it should be Gale.

toukokuu 6, 2010, 12:16am

>25 bananak:. Sorry, but what does 'ttly' means?

>24 Babbe2:. FantasyGirl2 says: Funny how some people never notice something glaringly obvious that's right under their noses. Obviously Gale is better!! and then shakes her head in despair for the ruin of the world....

(I mean no offence to anyone here.)

27Babbe2
toukokuu 6, 2010, 5:57pm

thanks... ttly in this case "I think totally gale" oh and some people dont relise that sometimes what they think is wrong and peeta is the best! No offence to anyone.

28FantasyGirl2
Muokkaaja: toukokuu 6, 2010, 6:16pm

Then in that case:
>25 bananak:. YES! SUPPORT THE CAUSE!

random person: what cause?

To Babbe2: To quote: some people dont relise that sometimes what they think is wrong . (Your own words have been thrown back at you, Ha!) Gale is totally the ONE. Seesh. Peeta can't even hunt. He can't even walk quietly!!

29Babbe2
toukokuu 6, 2010, 6:36pm

Blah and that is not his falt its the stupid games its not like he does it on purpose and really is that what you like for in a guy hunting skills or quietly walking???????

35bananak
toukokuu 6, 2010, 8:50pm

36Babbe2

GALE!!!! collins makes him sound so hot!! lolol jk he is just really cool

42Babbe2
toukokuu 7, 2010, 4:45pm

wow just wow

43Puppydogluver
toukokuu 7, 2010, 5:40pm

I think peeta is sorta useless, but is very devoted to her.

Gale doesn't really know what she has been doing and doesn't really understand, but would be useful to live with.

44bananak
toukokuu 7, 2010, 8:39pm

i agree with puppydogluver. peeta is just kinda the character who is only taking part in the romantic stuff, and gale is just for evrything else, idk tho, its a hard topic

45FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 7, 2010, 9:12pm

Gale is also sort of more of a realist than Peeta. He's down-to-earth, knows what has to be done. While Peeta proclaiming his love for Katniss, making her feel akward.

But its funny, how in the first book, Katniss says that when Galeand her go hunting he yells about the Capitol and all? And in the second on, they Katniss and Peeta are at that party, dancing, and Peeta says 'not-nice' things about the Capitol?

46bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 9:07am

OMG YEAH!! i nevr thought of that good point fantasyGirl2!! i think its competition to defy the capitol lol

47Babbe2
toukokuu 8, 2010, 3:02pm

hahaha DOWN WITH THE CAPITAL!!!!!!!

48FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 8, 2010, 5:18pm

49FantasyGirl2
Muokkaaja: toukokuu 8, 2010, 5:25pm

Anyway, back to the original question of Gale/Peeta: Katniss says:

"Gale is mine. I am his. Anything else is unthinkable" Bk. 2, Chpt 8.

"I have chosen Gale and the rebellion, and a future with Peeta is the Capitol's design, not mine." Bk 2,Chpt 9.

So there, Babbe2! Ha!

50bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 6:16pm

haha lol awesome!!! BOOK REFERENCES!!!! proof!!! sweet, sweet PROOF!!!!

51FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 8, 2010, 7:32pm

I know!! I read the books over, end to end, and realised that I could use all I was reading.

52bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 8:41pm

lol yeah thats genius. there's no real proof that katniss doesnt really see peeta as her husband, so ther!! lolol

53FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 8, 2010, 8:47pm

??? double negatives??

54bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 8:50pm

no i meant i dont think katniss has evr mentioned in the books that she has an undying love for peeta so.....

55FantasyGirl2
Muokkaaja: toukokuu 8, 2010, 9:30pm

You're right. In fact, she feels sorta guilty when Peeta claims his love for her.

And shealso says so herself: there are only 2 out of many kisses that she actually feels. Like .01%, wheras with Gale its like 100% (partly because it only happened once, the other being when Gale was unwell)

56bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 9:47pm

oh yeah!!! and she only 'likes' him for show

57FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 8, 2010, 9:49pm

You're right.And she doesn't want him to die because he's "the boy with the bread" and she "owes" him, and if he dies, she feels everyone will hate her

58bananak
toukokuu 8, 2010, 9:55pm

they probably will. its like she loves him for publicity and out of guilt. and peeta has no idea...... OMG I JUST HAD AN IDEA!!!! what if katniss marries gale and peeta marries prim???? OMG THAT WOULD B SO WEIRD!!!!!!!!!!

59FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 11:52am

eeg. Peeta and Prim???

60Babbe2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 3:52pm

i concur bye bye capital!!! Sianra!!!

61Babbe2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 3:53pm

ok eww and she has to marry peeta or else or at least that is wat president snow claims

62FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 5:49pm

Hello? Have you not read the second book? Peeta is CAPTURED by the capitol. How on earth is she supposed to marry him?
And she doesn't want to marry him, remember? She says so.

63bananak
toukokuu 9, 2010, 6:33pm

yeah but idk, that sounds like a compromise you know? maybe they can share a mansion, IDK

64FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 7:09pm

maybe.

65bananak
toukokuu 9, 2010, 8:22pm

its all up to suzanne collins now

66Puppydogluver
toukokuu 9, 2010, 9:25pm

67bananak
toukokuu 9, 2010, 9:39pm

68FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 9, 2010, 9:57pm

You're right, all of you. I can't wait. Ooohhh. But I do not doubt her choices. Her previous series were soo good.

69bananak
toukokuu 10, 2010, 8:36am

yeah whatevr choice she makes, ther r some ppl (babbe2) who will b upset its not peeta but we (me and fantasygirl2) will rejoice bcuz its gale LOLOLOLOL

70FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 10, 2010, 4:28pm

Ha! That we will. And then we can rejoice. *mocks Babbe2*

71Puppydogluver
toukokuu 10, 2010, 4:43pm

They are both sorta devoted... but peeta more... i would choose gale tho. he seems less uncomfortable to be with and more useful

72FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 10, 2010, 5:52pm

I agree. Gale is comfortable tobe with. And besides, Katniss and Gale have knowne each other for years. That sorta know each other. They are also both from the Seam, so they share similar ideas. And Gale would fully support Katniss, as she would him.

73bananak
toukokuu 10, 2010, 6:01pm

peeta was in the seam too right? wait thats what the district was called right?? i cant remember

74FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 10, 2010, 6:03pm

No, Peeta was not in the seam. He liven in the town.The seam is near where all the mines are. But they are all from District 12.

75bananak
toukokuu 10, 2010, 6:07pm

93FantasyGirl2
toukokuu 14, 2010, 7:39pm

Peeta is the one Katniss pretended to be in love with so they could live. Gale is her best friend.

94Mariah7

toukokuu 26, 2010, 2:57pm

Im like Katniss, I don't know how to decide!! its too impossible.... i mean theyr both realli cute and they both love her, but gale is more shy about it. Gale knows how she works, but Peeta is around more, and now Peeta is in the enemy's hand so she'd go to save Peeta and Gale would get mad at her, how come all the famous novel have a love triangle?

heinäkuu 3, 2010, 11:54am

Peeta for sure, i mean the whole time reading i was just frustrated that Katniss couldnt realize how much she and Peeta would be perfect for each other. I mean it is a hard choice sometimes when Gale seems so great but I always like Peeta

113FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 3, 2010, 7:43pm

Well, that where our ideas differ. I don't think that Peeta is perfect for Katniss. I think Gale is.

114BookLover287

Ah, that.
Remember how I said "No one objected to it...... so she wins!!" in 124? Yeah. I was referring to what you said, that you were at your grandma's house, and you couldn't post....but there are other members in here too, who SHOULD have been here, and SHOULD have posted, because I know several of them go for Peeta.
Sorry if what I said seemed that I was offending you, I simply wrote it wrong. No offense meant to anyone.

I've been "researching", and look at what I found on Yahoo Answers. (BookLover287's going to love this)
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100508175451AA69jOz

Question:
Hunger Games : Team Peeta vs. Team Gale?
I'm Team Peeta. Gale had all those years to reveal his feelings for Katniss and well look what happened. Peeta made his move right away.

Answer (chosen as best answer by asker)
Team Gale.
First I'll address what you said, then I'll launch into my usual argument lol.
People have different ways of showing and expressing their feelings. I'm like Gale--I'll like somebody for years, but I have such difficulty expressing my emotions in any other way besides writing and music that I'll just never tell them. I'm way too shy to do something like write them a poem or song, therefore what I have to say to them just goes unsaid. I can tell by his personality that Gale probably didn't know how to properly express his feelings for Katniss. They were there, but she was his best friend, and let's face it--sometimes it's harder to fall for a friend than a stranger because it is SO easy to ruin a friendship if it turns out the other person doesn't like you back. You can scare them off. If you like a friend and they don't like you back, they might think you only want to hang around with them because you think they're cute or whatever.
Also, when Gale and Katniss were friends all those years before The Hunger Games, they had other stuff to be worried about than dating each other. Gale had his priorities straight--the survival of his best friend, mother, and younger siblings came before a crush on a friend. I don't think there's anything wrong with that because back then, that's probably what it was--just a crush. Only when he realized he might lose Katniss did he really find that it was more than just a simple crush. Besides, did they really have time for dating? They were so busy with other stuff that Gale probably figured Katniss didn't really have time for things like that.
Peeta is obviously not shy at all. But I think he said a lot of what he did because he felt he and Katniss didn't have much time together. I think he could have approached her before, but he didn't. He gave her the bread, and that was it. Just because they ran in different circles, that's no excuse for him not approaching her prior to The Hunger Games. In my opinion, both boys had bad timing, but I can understand Gale's more than Peeta's because Gale was so busy with his family. Peeta lived a very sheltered life before The Hunger Games.
Gale is just so much better for her than Peeta. I don't care if Peeta can comfort her--Gale can protect her, and she needs that. Peeta gave her bread, but Gale taught her how to hunt. Her father instilled those things in her, and Gale helped her perfect her skills. Without that, she never would have won the Hunger Games. Have you ever heard the saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"? Peeta did the former. Gale did the latter. Which do you think would help her more in the long run?
I don't think Peeta is cut out to be her boyfriend, only because he seems so...I don't know, I guess the word I'm looking for is calm. He seems like someone who wants to settle down, start a family, and then probably bake a whole lot of bread. Katniss is such a free spirit. She can't be tied down. I think Gale is the same way. Katniss is unselfish, and that's what I like about her. Hopefully she knows enough to let Peeta go, because I predict he's only going to get hurt if they get together. You saw what happened when she had the whole thing with Haymitch going on in the 74th Games. Peeta got beyond angry. I don't think Katniss is ever going to stop keeping secrets from people. Gale knows her well, but I think she's still kind of a mystery to Peeta. He's a nice guy, and he deserves someone who will make him happy, but Katniss is NEVER going to stop taking care of her sister and her mother. That's what her life is. To her, it's not about a boyfriend. It's about the survival of her family, and I think Gale would be prepared to take a back seat to Prim and Mrs. Everdeen when needed. Katniss has worked her whole life. She needs someone who will take care of her, and I think Gale can do it.
So yeah.
(:

142FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 20, 2010, 4:28pm

She wouldn't be mean haha tesing, its more like that friendly banter teasing, if you get what i mean.
I don't like romance books. Jess is trying to convince me otherwise.
She hasn't succeeded yet. Not more than 0.0000000.....0001%. )I like the hunger games)
And that isn't an official romance book. Its about rebellion and survival.

I was talking to both (all) of you. The poems ARE really nice.
BookLover287's was really great. If you don't believe me, you can be assured that it is definitely better than I could ever hope to write. I'm bad at poems

148BookLover287

I'm better at writing stories. I've been told that my poems are too long before.

I would say Gale. He has been there from the very beginning and has been Katniss' best friend for a while. Even though she and Peeta went through a lot together, I still say Gale. Just thinking about the upcoming book it would be terrible if she chose Peeta over Gale and then Gale just sort of drifts away from Katniss and out of the main part of the story.

STILL TEAM PEETA. Could someone who is Team Gale explain why? I read the above comments, but with what happens at the end of Mockingjay, I don't understand how you could still be...sorry if that was SPOILERS.
