We are a team, aren’t we?
Anonymous said: It burns my britches every single time someone laments about how Gale's story is so utterly tragic bc he loved Katniss & then he lost her. No. His story isn't tragic bc of an unrequited love. His story is tragic bc his of war tactics & hatred for those who aren't like him. It is tragic bc of his willingness to kill innocent civilians all in the name of war. And no, his poor childhood back in D12 does not excuse any of those actions. Katniss grew up under the exact same circumstances didn't she?
A tragic background does not excuse a character’s problematic actions. Understandable, sure. But sometimes I still get shocked by how some of Gale stans are more offended by the legit criticisms of their fave than the actions of their fave. I just don’t get how anyone could be so casual & nonchalant about what he did & positions he took, or how anyone could lament him not ending up with Katniss but is dismissive about why he didn’t (So much like their fave I guess).

I haven't read the books then and I had to google who JLaw is.. I saw the blonde dude on the trailer and I thought he looked familiar and I figured he was the kid from Zathura & little manhattan... I thought before THG, josh stopped acting. Same boat, I wasn't sure I was going to watch THG but my sister convinced because she liked movie and the book (1/2)
So here we are… I became a fan of THG and I have a new appreciation to Jen’s and Josh’s acting. (2/2) 😃Sorry for the late response, but yes, I thought there was nothing unique about my experience, a number of ppl in the fandom were the same way as us. I just side eye fans who think they’re special for liking & knowing their fave before everyone else did.

Do you know breaks my heart?
Peeta was probably 99.9% sure he was going to die in a few days’ time during each one of these interviews and yet he was able to keep it together in order to do everything he could to save Katniss.
it’s like… the more people insist on hating a female character… the more i love that character. it’s like my superhero backstory. they are gradually fueling my powers and soon i shall fly above the city skyline with hundreds of innocent female characters gathered safe in my arms
Call me crazy. But I don’t think Katniss using Peeta’s safety as leverage in her negotiations with Coin means that she only chose to be the Mockingjay because of him.
But that seems to be one side of the argument. People are mad because Katniss is all, “Save Peeta or GTFO.” But… though not verbatim, that’s really basically what she does in the book, too.
Usually, I’d decline, but it’s kind of impossible to say no to Pollux, given the circumstances. Besides, the mockingjays’ song voices are different from their whistles, and I’d like him to hear them.
Canon AU where Katniss and Peeta turn into birds and fly away from all the bullshit.
