( It's surprisingly hard to find a picture of these two besides the. ―Finnick Odair to Katniss Everdeen, as they prepare to infiltrate the Capitol. Finnick Odair was a Later that day, Finnick introduced Katniss to Mags, whom Katniss immediately liked and befriended. Like the other . Relationships. Forced by. One interesting aspect of Peeta and Katniss' relationship is the evolution. The two start off as virtual strangers, then they enter into an uneasy.
At the end, however, all these obstacles disappear. Gale traipses off to District 2. The war ends and the Capitol becomes no more. Only when these obstacles fall away, can Katniss contemplate Peeta in a romantic way.
At the end, Katniss falls in love with Peeta's optimistic nature. Peeta maintains his sunny disposition despite his sufferings. In a way, his fate was worse than Katniss'. He lost his entire family. The Capitol hacked his mind and transformed him into a different person.
Still, he clings to the happiness that he ekes out in District As Katniss describes Peeta, he is sunlight in the meadows -- hope in the darkness. He's a perfect antidote to Katniss' natural and warranted pessimism and gloom. Katniss never actually loves Peeta in a mature and romantic way. Her feelings for him vary based on the situation, but they never develop into full-blown love.
Katniss never treats Peeta as true partner on her own level. Throughout the first book, she deliberately playacts as a woman in love because she knows that's what Haymitch wants and that's what gets her fed. In the second book, she makes a deal with Haymitch to keep Peeta alive without telling him. She also keeps important information from him until he finally explodes with frustration. In the final book, she never trusts him either -- she refuses to give him the poisoned pill, she fights him when he won't let her kill himself.
Throughout the series, she refers to him as the "boy with the bread". This is how she really thinks of him -- as a provider. After years of starvation and struggle, she is not emotionally capable of loving him except as a provider of food and safety.
Similarly, Gale also hits the nail when he observes that Katniss will choose whomever she can't survive without. Gale is in love with Katniss and knows her best and this is his summary: Katniss isn't looking for love, she's looking for survival. When Peeta asks Katniss, "And did you love me? Katniss has never been able to lie nor hide her feelings -- we should take this inability of hers to say that she loved him as the truth. Finally, he can see me for who I truly am Without the strength and steadiness of Peeta's love, Katniss' flimsy, makeshift feelings can't stand on their own.
Once you strip away Peeta's side, you can see that what's left on Katniss's side isn't love of the same caliber. She occasionally feelings "stirrings" of passion when she kisses Peeta, but really, this sounds more like year-old hormones at work.
Katniss lost her father at a young age, and, basically lost a mother at the same time. She had to grow up fast and had no one to take care of her or love her unconditionally To Katniss, Peeta steps into the parent role. When they're not on good terms, what she misses the most about him are his strong arms at night, chasing away her nightmares Whenever she is facing some obstacle and feels weak or powerless i.
At the end of the day, I think there's enough evidence to make a good case for Katniss's not being in love with Peeta.
Yes, she appreciates his good qualities, she cares for him, and ends up marrying him, but it's not out of a unconditional romantic love. Alan NicholasAttorney. I love the two diametrically opposed answers from Cristina Hartmann and Kat Li, and I think they both have merit, but I'm a big Bill Clinton fan, so I'm going to present a Third Path sorry, something I read like in the last 24 hours, verbal slippage.
First, I think it's pertinent to point out that the above mentioned answers are considering "love" in a certain context, as a feeling of romantic attachment and affection.
I would argue that love is a choice, an action, rather than an emotional reaction. That to love, one chooses to stand by another, through thick and thin, and chooses to devote oneself to the other, regardless of what they may feel.
So, if we consider love as an action, as opposed to a feeling, then first and foremost, the answer to this question would be yes. But I'm going to delve a little further. Katniss is far from a passive character.Finnick and Katniss - My Friend
She acts, and she survives, but when she acts, is she being reactive or proactive? I believe that there are two true proactive actions taken by Katniss. One is assassinating the President Coin, the other is choosing to love Peeta at the resolution of the three novels.
During the first novel, The Hunger Games, Katniss reacts to everything. She reacts when her sister's name is called, by standing up and taking her place. She reacts in the games in order to survive.
Does Katniss Truly Love Peeta?
She reacts to the hints that Haymitch sends in regards to how she should act towards Peeta, creating a false romance in order to save them both. She acts, but it is reactive. During the second novel, Catching Fire, again she is reactive. She is reacting to the mess that she feels she created at the end of The Hunger Games. She reacts to the different dangers faced during the games. Another way to point out her reactive nature is shown in the fact that she is not let in on the plot to escape the second Games.
She does not know that there will be an escape attempt. She is still along for the ride. This is thematic in the first two novels. During the third novel, she begins to be proactive. I stated that there were only two proactive actions I could point to earlier in this answer, but you could argue that her decision to don the mantel of the Mockingjay in the third novel, Mockingjay, is also a proactive decision.
