Okay so I structure it in a Peeta paragraph, then a Gale paragraph and then one of them together.
Katniss and Peeta have a love that has been shaped from strife and sadness and loneliness. When they were completely alone in themselves, it was each other that they found solace in. That kind of love isn’t made from years of affection, but it also can’t be broken easily either because of the intense amounts of feeling that happen in such a short amount of stress-inducing time. For instance Peeta and Katniss hadn’t been close after the 74th Hunger Games and basically she just alienated him from her life. But AS SOON as they entered the victory tour together and started to deal with the continuous violence and heartache, they again found love in each other and soon Katniss realizes she can’t just let him go again. Their love is beautiful and pure and overreaches the boundaries of pain that surely breaks other couples. Instead they live through their pain TOGETHER and because of that they are bound together by a bond that virtually NO ONE ELSE EVER IN THE COUNTRY can even begin to understand.
On the other hand, Katniss and Gale have fostered their affection for each other over decades of relation and understanding. The deaths of their fathers inextricably bound them together and ever since that moment, their survival was almost dependent on each other. Every mannerism that Katniss has Gale knows and every mannerism Gale has Katniss knows. Their love, unlike Everlark, is one of companionship, dependany on survival, and absolute trust. Without Gale, Prim and Katniss’s mother would have surely perished and without Gale Katniss would have never accessed a part of herself that would have been locked away; through her relation to Gale and his pain and his suffering, they grew up as young, reckless, wishful children who only wanted the love they had grown up understanding, but in the end they were torn apart by the whims of Panem.
In tandem, both ships deserve respect. While Everlark is endgame, that in no way means that that invalidates Everthorne or exempts it from existance. It is UNDENIABLE that Katniss loved Gale and continues to love Gale even after he leaves her in the end. But Peeta represents a part of her life that she can never leave behind and he’s the only other person in the world who can understand the deep-seeded pain and regret that came with being the Mockingjay. I hope this is sufficient; I love Everlark and I love Everthorne and although Katniss/Gale is my otp I can openly understand the importance of Everlark and why in the end their love supercedes almost everything else.
walking into the supernatural writing office like
I’m so glad Castiel manipulated that angel and stole his grace like it was a great reminder how easy it will be for Cas to kick these punks off his lawn
basically I’m thinking Cas must have killed most of heaven’s strategists in 7x01 because pretty much all the angels in s8 and s9 have Zero Political Game; Castiel is gonna run circles around these amateurs lol
