I am team Peeta. He loved Katniss in the first games, the quell, and when she was the rebels Mockingjay. Gale kills prim. Peeta is cute and Gale is just.......lame. Katniss belongs with Peeta because Gale is her friend through thick and thin. You do not date your best friend.

Team no one because that's not what the book is about. This isn't the new Twilight, okay? Please don't belittle the series with "teams".

I kinda agree with the 'don't make this the new Twilight'. But if I had to pick someone i preferred Katniss to end up with, it's Gale. When i read the book, i just didn't feel any chemistry between her and Peeta, to me, I found Peeta a bit desperate for her attention, and i never got past the whole 'i was pretending to be in love with you for the sponsors' thing. I thought it was the right choice in the end though, especially in the wake of what happened to Prim, I definitely understand. But that didn't make me not prefer Gale, he and Katniss had a lot in common. But it makes sense that a person like Katniss would need an opposite to balance her out. The fact that she chose Peeta worked especially well in the end though, because that means she didn't choose Finnick...and Finnick is mine!!!

I'm not making this a "Twilight," but I wish Katniss had ended up with Gale. She had such a long history with him. I understand Kat was upset with him because his bombs were used, but they were used against him. He didn't use them for that part of the war. If any of you have read the Maximum Ride series, Gale is Fang to me, and Peeta is Dylan.

I appreciate that romance is a balanced aspect of the series. I didn't think much of it while watching the movie the first time and then reading the books. Now I definitely prefer Gale. If I can even like the remaining movies at all, watching Katniss end up with Peeta will be a major distraction. I might make a point to boo or cheer accordingly.

What does it say beyond this guy or that guy?

I think I both like Gale and dislike Peeta. It seems clear that there's no one else for her. I don't get why Peeta is so popular with the fanbase.

Peeta is too much of a coward to talk to her for 11 years, and without the Reaping he probably would have taken even longer if he ever said anything at all. Shouldn't that have disqualified him. Yes, Gale waited 4 years and then screwed it up, which seems out of character for him considering how romantically successful he was at school. Also, he got to know her so well in person instead of just observing from the shadows. [Peeta shared a few weeks with Katniss in the arena; Gale shared years with her] At least Gale tried - I would have had more respect for a Peeta that tried and failed earlier. It seems unrealistic that he somehow gets away with waiting so long.

At best, Peeta wins only because Gale loses, which doesn't reflect well on Peeta, and I think the choice reflects badly on Katniss as well.

Gale is obviously a much more compatible personality - wouldn't the tough and brave Katniss seek a kindred spirit instead of a softie coward? Maybe she's not as tough and brave as we thought. Also poverty, family loyalty, etc. Gale is one of those rare tough guys with other things to recommend him.

Maybe Katniss feels sorry for not wanting Peeta, but that's his problem. Likewise, she felt guilty about provoking the rebellion, but that's the Capitol's problem.

Even Prim's death seems like an excuse - wouldn't the rebel in Gale be just as outraged by Coin being just as bad as Snow? Even before that, Katniss had plenty of opportunities to choose Gale. [If she chooses a lesser living man because of her dead sister, that's her problem.]

Why Gale wants her (or why Finnick wants Annie) is another issue.

Frankly, I wouldn't mind if Peeta had died. I hope Katniss would at least see the light then.

Peeta's a good guy, but I still don't see how he seemed like a better choice than Gale.

It's tragic that she's driven away from Gale, but she gets what she deserves in the lesser man Peeta.

This is nothing against Josh Hutcherson - in fact, I praise him as an actor for his efforts to make his sad-sack character likable.

Peeta reminds me of myself mostly in a bad way. I wish I was more like Gale. For instance, I'm angry about bullshit [like a fictional character's love life], Gale's angry about important things.

Looking up to soft guys seems to weaken society.

[They're both smart and strong, although in different ways. Although this isn't a big deal, Gale looks even better.]
