Gale didn’t just not end up with Katniss though he got completely cut out of her life. They were best friends and depended on each other to keep their families alive.
I don’t care if you don’t like Gale or what but don’t tell me that’s not fucking tragic as hell. Especially since we never find out what happened to Gale. His story just stops after we find out he goes to live in Two, and as far as we know he never gets to see his best friend again.
without even thinking, i jumped up and threw my arms around him, making some weird sound that combined laughing, choking, and crying. he was holding me so tightly that i couldn’t see his face, but it was a really long time before he let me go.
In the woods waits the only person with whom I can be myself. Gale. I can feel the muscles in my face relaxing, my pace quickening as I climb the hills to our place, a rock ledge overlooking a valley. A thicket of berry bushes protects it from unwanted eyes. The sight of him waiting there brings on a smile.
I will never understand people call Gale angry and use it as an insult. Of course he’s angry. Why wouldn’t he be angry? He has every reason in the entire world to be angry. Stop condemning a boy for being angry at his oppressors.
