Keep Breathing by Muchacha10 Keep Breathing by Muchacha10
"I'm so sorry," I whisper. I lean forward and kiss him. His eyelashes flutter and he looks at me through a haze of opiates. "Hey, Catnip."
"Hey, Gale," I say.
"Thought you'd be gone by now," he says.

..."I'm not going anywhere."

-Catching Fire

Inspired by Ingird Michealsen's Keep Breathing

I am a hardcore Peeta fan, but this moment moved me DEEPLY, and I felt for Gale. I will spoil no more if you haven't yet read the Hunger Games books. And why is it that I always choose the bloodiest, most morbid parts to draw? (shrug)

I am a Peeta fan too, but I couldn't help loving this scene because for a few moments I actually loved Gale, I felt so bad for him. By the way, amazing drawing.

yeah, this moment moved me deeply too, he didn't deserve what this stupid guy made him at this part. And she... "I'm not going anywhere", don't matter what you said, look like she said :heart:
and girl, I think you'll be tired of me saying that I love your work, but it's totally true! :D

Catching Fire was definitely the best of the three books.
And you make my brain break because I'm arguing with myself if I should fave that. I mean, it's AWESOME (like always) but I feel like that'd be betrayal of my Peeta-fangirlness.

I'm in love with Gale and thought I was going to cry at this part :/ it was really intense and really moving(like you said). Although Mockingjay was basically all like this, I think Catching Fire was more balanced. Like everything would be kind of okay then BOOM someone dies or gets maimed. Personally, I think that makes more of an impact. Awesome job!

Seriously, Spy, you're awesome! And you have Catching Fire! Yay! I just got past this bit, I agree
with you, I really felt for him too. So sad, I don't know who to choose now! But I like Peeta...but
Gale is so...arg. Anyways, this is purely fantastic! I like how you've done Katniss's gash/scratch/
scar on her cheek, too. Not too gorey, just right! Great job!

i love peeta, so heroic (i've said that soo many times,
but that's what he is...) he's like my dream man! funny,
i work in a bakery...and paint and draw! perfect match...
