Team Gale

Sunday, February 12, 2012
You might've seen Kris' post earlier about the Love Triangle Debate at Lisa and Brodie's Valentine Event as Team Ren's representative. Well, this time, it's Hikari with Team Gale (yeps, it's that Gale) from The Hunger Games. Check out the original post at Lisa's and remember to VOTE FOR GALE!! Or just read the post here and... VOTE FOR GALE. Er, anyway... just remember to vote for Gale, okay? (I think that was a bit overkill...)

Represented by: Hikari (yours truly)

Who is Gale?

He's the Seam boy with black hair, olive skin, and grey eyes. He hunts, he makes snares, oh, and I forgot to mention... he's hot.

Melting Points

Gale will make you melt. If he had a melting point, it'd probably be around 20 trillion degrees. Why? Read on.

As I said before, he's hot.

"Gale won't have any trouble finding a wife. He's good-looking, he's strong enough to handle the work in the mines, and he can hunt. You can tell by the way girls whisper about him when he walks by in school that they want him." -- Katniss (THG p.10)

Girls like bad boys.

Katniss once called Gale "a rebel since birth." Gale doesn't approve of the Capitol and he makes his views clear. He designed bombs and traps and other weapons when he's in District 13, and he never hesitated to go on dangerous missions. He's a rebel, and bad boys sure have their appeal (especially if they're good-looking).

He loves his family.

There are plenty of hot guys who don't care about their family. But Gale obviously loves his three younger siblings and his mother

"Gale, who is eighteen and has been either helping or single-handedly feeding a family of five for seven years, will have his name in forty-two times." -- Katniss (THG p13)

That just adds to the "aw"-factor, no?

He's dangerous.

He's a pro at making snares and trapping animals. He can also use a bow and arrow (like Katniss!). In District 13, Gale designed bombs and various other weaponry, some of which were pretty brutal.

Why Gale?

Okay, so here's the main thing: why should Katniss choose Gale over Peeta?

Childhood friends make better lovers.

Katniss and Gale have a history. They've hunted together, they've taught each other new skills, and they're a constant support for one another. They know each other really well and they work in perfect synchrony as a team. As a couple, they'd know exactly what the other was thinking.

They're the real star-crossed lovers.

Although Katniss and Peeta are the ones advertised as "star-crossed lovers" in their first Hunger Games, Katniss and Gale are the true star-crossed pair. Katniss is forced to get engaged to Peeta, and Gale is threatened because he kissed Katniss in the forest. Katniss has to keep up appearances of being hopelessly in love with Peeta, so Gale and Katniss' relationship never got the chance to develop.

Better chance of staying alive.

Peeta isn't exactly useless, but he's still a baker's son and he never grew up in the Seam. If Peeta and Katniss were in a brawl as a tag team, Katniss would probably be the one defending Peeta. On the other hand, if it were Gale, he'd fight with her and with their combined skills and their years of cooperating together, they'd probably win.

Remember to vote!
