Peeta Mellark 15 Day Challenge: Day 1 -When did you first start liking Peeta’s character?“To this day, I can never shake the connection between this boy, Peeta Mellark, and the bread that gave me hope, and the dandelion that reminded me I was not doomed. And more than once, I have turned in the school hallway and caught his eyes trained on me, only to quickly flit away.”
The reaping/bread scene story. First time we see him, and I loved him too much already. Just something about how nobody volunteered for him, and how he gave her the bread clicked with me. The way he’s about to be thrown into what is highly likely a death sentence, and he’s reassuring her. He’s reassuring someone he doesn’t really even know. Plus from Katniss mentioning how he was always stealing glances, watching her, I knew something had to happen. I knew he felt something for her.
#the real ot3 of this trilogy #i don’t understand how you can’t see it #katniss hunts; peeta bakes; haymitch drinks #and like #the three of them are just externally linked together #not just because haymitch is their mentor #but because all three of them have the experience of being participants in the hunger games #living through it and having to endure the horrific trauma it brought #ot3 forever man #also this photoset is fairly light hearted and my tags don’t really fit it#but WHATEVER #what is a gale
#I will tell you what a gale is #I love Gale more than life itself but yes #Gale is not part of the OT3 #and more than that Gale knows it too #he knows that he is the outside looking in #that he can fight and die and be noble and brave or horrible and bloody #and STILL not be allowed in this spectrum haymitch peeta and katniss forge in one another #create around one another through one another #they have walked roads been roads survived roads that Gale has only watched as a spectator #and Gale is so inherently aware of that that it tears him up inside #he can only give Katniss her woods #but the woods have grown dark and unfamiliar #the woods are where rue died where she was lit on fire where she bore witness to the murder of children #the woods have become lonely and dark and deep #fathomless where before they were her net #and Gale has only existed for katniss in the woods because once she was the woods and only the woods and gale was hers #and then capitol and then the games and then haymitch and then peeta #and katniss became something more while gale stayed the same #and every time he looks at her he sees something foreign and unfamiliar too #his woods have changed as well #that is what a gale is
