I don’t want them to change me in there.
Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.
Ok, why would someone do this! This post is just cruel!
I hate that the one thing Peeta wanted - to stay himself - the Capitol took away from him. Same with Katniss and Prim.
Urgh - the characters go through so much, I really don’t know how I’ll survive the films. At least I do know what happens in the end, but that isn’t all good!♥ 5116 Notes
I keep on trying to work out his expression and I can’t!
I can’t decide if he’s trying to make the point to the watchers that he’s there because he has to be, but doesn’t really support it (kinda like how Joanna puts her hand on her hip in the latest) or if he’s kinda in the middle of the hijacking and actually does agree with Snow at this point!
GAH! I so wanna see how they play it in the actual film! Now that the publicity is actually getting pretty decent, I have much more faith in the films!♥ 2178 Notes
And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me.
Can I just say, I think that’s one of my favourite lines of the whole entire trilogy.
I don’t get why it’s not used more often in the Everlark fandom, because it shows so, so well how early on Katniss was attracted to Peeta.
And it’s just so adorably cute of Peeta to do - and a rare insightful moment from Katniss.
And can I just add, Josh NAILS IT in the films.♥ 3167 Notes
"What about you? I’ve seen you in the market. You can lift hundred pound bags of flour,” I snap at him. “Tell him that. That’s not nothing.”
“Yes, and I’m sure the arena will be full of bags of flour for me to chuck at people. It’s not like being able to use a weapon. You know it isn’t,” he shoots back.
“He can wrestle,” I tell Haymitch. “He came in second in our school competition last year, only after his brother.”
“What use is that? How many times have you seen someone wrestle someone to death?” says Peeta in disgust.
“There’s always hand-to-hand combat. All you need is to come up with a knife, and you’ll at least stand a chance. If I get jumped, I’m dead!”
Yeah, Peeta is such a weakling. He’s always being saved by Katniss…
Wait, hang on…
#Eyeroll #Just don’t get why people still say Peeta’s weak #Both the books AND films prove otherwise #And I do love how much Katniss knows about Peeta - way before the games!♥ 4025 Notes
"I´m not used to being touched, except by Peeta or my family"
Catching Fire - p77
And yet she was friends with Gale for so long…
And in all that time she never let herself get as physically or emotionally close as she was with Peeta.
I know the extreme situation of the Games helped. But even after, she still remained very physically close to Peeta, but not to Gale.
#Sorry, but how can people say Katniss should’ve ended up with Gale? #I just don’t get it #No ship wars intended #But I just don’t get it.♥ 1120 Notes
It’s cute how Peeta thinks this, considering the fact that everyone would burn their books if he died
I did love how he said this in the film though. Not an ounce of self pity, just like the book.
It was just a fact he saying, nothing fancy or flashy, and in the movie the delivery - both the voice and the expressions - was just perfect.♥ 574 Notes
Peeta Mellark + Sass.
Can I just say I LOVED how they made Peeta so snarky in this - and rebellious at the same time. Just like he is in the book.
It was definitely lacking in the first film, so very pleased we had some great lines for him here.♥ 77846 Notes
Peeta Mellark & Rory Williams: making it impossible for other guys to look good
My tumblr policy is to automatically reblog anything that acknowledges that Peeta and Rory are each other’s spirit animal.
LOL! Yep, Rory Williams and Peeta Mellark are as bad as Disney films and period dramas for raising a girl’s expectations too high! LOL!
And yep, I love how similar Rory and Peeta are in a way - including the fact that they both die at least once! In fact, I remember joking about Peeta “pulling a Rory!”
I mean, they both have massive crushes on a girl since they were kids, they both are very warm hearted, kind people, but are also proper kick-ass when they need to be. They are both willing to die for said girl and, well, are just so alike personaility wise as well!
I kind of love finding parallels between Peeta and Rory: I have such a soft spot for big-hearted characters such as these.
I totally remember that discussion about Peeta pulling a Rory and not wanting to spoil Catching Fire. But Peeta totally did, especially since his heart already stopped a couple of times at the end of THG.
A couple of other Rory/Peeta parallels off the top of my head
- Their interactions with the third member of their trio (The Doctor/Haymitch): they may have their differences and are sometimes under appreciated by the mentor figure, but they always come together to support Amy/Katniss.
- Only the most terrible things can make them hurt the woman that they love. In Rory’s case, it was becoming an Auton and shooting Amy; in Peeta’s, it was, of course, the hijacking. Separately, both reveals made me want to throw things.
Hey Silverducks-look what I found yesterday while I was rooting around in my archives for an old post. Memories!
Especially in view of the bizarre (IMHO) analyses of Peeta’s character recently, I am so, so grateful that Suzanne Collins and Steven Moffat respectively created a baker and a nurse with amazing strength of character, will, and capacity to love.
HEHE! I remember this! And YES! It’s so nice to see that there are nice guys (actual nice guys!) depicted in stories who are strong in unconventional ways and go against the traditional masculine traits - yet are also very tough and kick-ass when they need to be.♥ 75 Notes
Can we all just apperciate the fact that Peeta was way up ahead when the fog attacked, and he went back
to shield katniss’s body with his
which resulted into him not being able to go on.
Then he pushed Katniss to run on her own and fell down gasping for air
PEETA MELLARK, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
It honestly amazes me when people say Peeta was such a weakling, that Katniss kept on saving him all the time.
Because unless there’s two different versions of the film out there (I swear, there must be two versions of the books!), it’s pretty darn clear Peeta saves Katniss a good few times - this time among them.
I mean, the film does have it’s faults (cough*Galeniss*cough), but it also shows Peeta being not only self reliant and strong, but actually saving katniss’ life a few times!
I just don’t get how you can argue Peeta’s weak in this film. I just do not get it!♥ 4140 Notes
Everlark + saying each other’s names
I think it really shows how much they mean to each other - even now.
And I do love Katniss’ reaction when she thinks Peeta is dead with the berries.♥ 3703 Notes
