Even then, I still found him really endearing for some odd reason.
During the entire first book, every time there were Katniss/Peeta vibes I was like NOOOOO! What about Gale?! And I agree about him still having a hold on me even after everything. I completely understand that he and Katniss couldn’t end up together after Prim, but I still love him just the same.
