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!♥ 3724 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.♥ 3589 Notes
He wanted it to be real.
Love Peeta’s expressions here, and the colouring.
Just hoping they do right by his character, and Everlark, in Catching Fire

Ok, so I’m not overly enthused by the style of the poster - the wishy washy colours look cool, but they are just not at all relevant.
And their postures are rather strange and I don’t quite get what it’s trying to get across.
BUT I AM super duper excited to see Peeta on there! YAY!
It’s nice of them to remember the second main character of the trilogy again!♥ 3026 Notes
“Ally.” Peeta says the words slowly, tasting it. “Friend. Lover. Victor. Enemy. Fiancee. Target. Mutt. Neighbor. Hunter. Tribute. Ally. I’ll add it to the list of words I use to try to figure you out. The problem is, I can’t tell what’s real anymore, and what’s made up.” - Mockingjay
This is sooooo gonna kill me in Mockingjay!♥ 667 Notes
I remember how, just a year ago, I was prepared to kill him. Convinced he was trying to kill me. Now everything is reversed. I’m determined to keep him alive, knowing the cost will be my own life.
As angsty as it is, I do love Katniss’ fierce desire to save Peeta in the Quater Quell - even if it would cost her her life.
And it’s interesting how she kinda avoids thinking too much about why she’s so determined to save him. Of course, Katniss never lets herself think about things like that, but her reasoning of Peeta being more “deserving” is a pretty lame excuse, even for her.
And I do love that scene on the beach, right before that kiss - because it’s the first real moment where Katniss actually acknowledges how much Peeta means to her - she doesn’t try to hide it from herself in that moment. It’s not about saving the boy with the bread, or about her idea of Peeta being more deserving. She admits then, it’s because SHE will be broken beyond repair without him.
And GAH! The perfection of that scene and then the horrors of what happens after nearly killed me! Because after she was finally willing to admit she was falling in love with Peeta, he gets taken from her and she shuts herself away again.
Sigh - this is really one angsty ship, I tell ya! And they better had do Everlark right in Catching Fire!♥ 2351 Notes
Katniss Everdeen’s various thoughts on Peeta Mellark throughout The Hunger Games
Love these quotes and the pictures.
And urgh, Katniss, hate to break it to ya honey, but your growing feelings for the boy with the bread are starting to show.
(She thinks she just wants Peeta to win because it’ll benefit her sister and mother? DE-NI-AL Katniss! You got it bad! LOL!)
But seriously, I do love all these quotes, it’s in these little sentences here and there where we see how much Katniss does care for Peeta - all the way back to the beginning of the first book.♥ 1540 Notes
The Boy with the Bread ; The Girl on Fire;
I love how Peeta is the “boy with the bread” and Katniss is the “girl on fire”, and the D12 marriage ritual is toasting bread!
Though I do really wish the bread story was explained properly in the film. I liked the flashbacks, but I don’t think the full significance of it came across very well.
I mean, Katniss was starving to death, her whole family was starving to death. Peeta’s bread saved not only her life, but the lives of those she loved.
And there’s even more to it than that - Peeta’s bread gave Katniss the hope and ability to be able to survive herself. His act of kindness was the motivation she needed to remember she could support her own family.
That hope he gave her saved herself then, her family then, and every year since. AND those survival skills also helped save her in the Games.
So yeah, I just wish the whole significance of the bread story was put across better. I’m hoping they’ll make up for it in that scene in Mockingjay.
I can hope, right?♥ 15995 Notes
"Peeta, who spends much of the night roaming the train, hears me screaming as I struggle to break out of the haze of drugs that merely prolong the horrible dreams. He manages to wake me and calm me down. Then he climbs into bed to hold me until I fall back to sleep. After that, I refuse the pills. But every night I let him into my bed. We manage the darkness as we did in the arena, wrapped in each other’s arms, guarding against dangers that can descend at any moment."
-Catching Fire (pgs. 71-72)
Brilliant gifset and one of my favourite Katniss/Peeta quotes.
And if this isn’t in the film…….
#I fear for the other people in the cinema if they screw up Everlark!♥ 41 Notes
I’m really happy that this was in the trailer - albeit paraphrased.
Because the real/not real aspect of Katniss and Peeta’s relationship is so heartbreaking and angsty and so much a part of their story, that it’d be awful to forget about it.
BUT, the fact that it is in the trailer gives me hope they’ll do their best to bring out all that complexity. And make Peeta reasonable and understanding about it all, like he is in CF. Because they could have had him carry on wallowing, but the trailer hints they won’t.♥ 326 Notes
