Oh Petey C, I love you already.

For those like me who can neither afford nor be arsed to leave their house on a Sunday morn to buy a copy of the Times, my good friend Blogtor Who has been kind enough to summarise the interview here. PLENTY of food for thought. Opinions?

YES. SO EXCITED.

For the life of me I cannot understand how anyone can hate Peeta. I mean he gets the worst of everyone,--- whole family dead, reaped, tortured, dies and comes back, verge of death in cave, and then I think people forget he didn't actually have to go back into the arena again because he wasn't reaped, Haymitch was so theres that. and then he spends his whole time trying to protect Katniss (after being captured) whilst being tortured and hijacked like wtf people. the guys a freakin hero.

Peeta saving Katniss

To this day, I could never shake the connection between this boy, Peeta Mellark, and the bread that gave me hope, and the dandelion that reminded me that I was not doomed.

I don’t typically post others’ things on here, but what a great visual reminder of Peeta’s protection over Katniss.

What It Feels Like To Take The Bar Exam
Thank you so much for awnsering!!!!! You know, I read a story one where Peeta had killed Katniss during their first meeting, and It really stuck to me, in the story, when he finally became un-homicidal maniaced they lied to him about the death. In fact the only people that knew were her family. I always figure Peeta would just never recover and end up killing himself without Katniss to help him.

Thank YOU so much for sending the question-I really enjoyed thinking about it.  If you happen to remember the story, I would love to check it out.  But, yeah, if Peeta had killed Katniss AND he had recovered at least to the bare extent of the Capitol siege, it’s hard for me to contrive of situations where he could live with what he had done.  And as with Katniss herself, I tend to think that he would only be kept around (let’s not even get to the quality of care he would receive) if he were somehow perceived to be useful in some capacity. 

Okay, I really value your opinion so I must ask, what do you think would happen had Peeta Killed Katniss,?either during their first meeting or after the war? Do you think if Peeta had killed Katniss in their first meeting would he had recovered from his hijacking?

Sorry for the late response peetamellarksbabymama, and thank you so much for your question! 

My gut instinct is that nothing good could have happened.  I don’t think that he would have been able to recover from killing Katniss during a hijacked episode (which is why I believe that neither he nor Doctor Aurelius would sign off on his return to District 12 until they were both as confident as they could be that they were treating Peeta effectively).  More discussion below the cut.
