district mellark

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: finnick odair is viewed widely as a superficial character who was only self-obsessed and okay with being a killer, but really he survived the hunger games as the youngest ever winner, went through that much trauma and survived at 14 years old, grew up to fall in love with an emotionally damaged girl who had gone through what he had, yet she had turned out more externally damaged, grew close with a sweet old woman, was willing to protect her with his life and literally physically carried her on his back in the games, despite the risk to himself, stood with the rebellion against the Capitol even though he was their darling, publicly defied and spilled secrets about the president, married that same damaged girl he loved even in the middle of a war and had a child who he never got to meet, helped a psychologically damaged and unrecognizable Peeta and defended him, protected his friends and team against the lizard mutts, and actually begged for Katniss to throw a bomb down where he was, because he knew that it would save her and the rest of the team, even though he would die.
Movie Gale VS Book Gale

Movie Gale: “I don’t care! I would never say what he just said. Not if they torture me, not with a gun to my head.”

Book Gale: “He might have been tortured. Or persuaded. My guess is he made some kind of deal to protect you.”

Movie Gale: “I just saw a coward. Now he’s only defending himself.”

Book Gale: “Katniss…he’s still trying to keep you alive.”

At least he saved Peeta in the end

Wrath Of An Everdeen.

Gale Hawthorne x Female Reader.

Request by Anon: Can you write a one-shot where gale and the reader are together but Katniss comes back into the picture and obviously doesn't like you.

Warnings: None I can think of.

As the sectioned off areas settled down and the cameras settled on us, it was obvious that District 12 was no where special and it was never going to be somewhere anyone of importance would want to visit soon or anywhere that would be remembered. That was until the reaping continued, as every child stood trembling waiting for their names to be called, that is when everything changed, Primrose Everdeen was picked then Katniss volunteered as tribute which baffled the crowd as well as the escort Effie Trinket. You watched nervously as Katniss took her place on the stage as Gale pulled Prim away from her sister to her mother. The boy tribute hadn’t been called yet but you crossed your fingers on both hands as you silently pray it wouldn’t be him, and thankfully, it wasn’t but as Peeta Mellark took his place on the stage beside Katniss, you turned back to look at Gale who seemed to frown at you but what you didn’t see was his eyes twinkle.
