Meet the competitors:

Team Peeta

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.”

Arianna from Down with the Capitol
Gabby from The Hob
Sheila and Angie from HG Girl on Fire
Kimberly Denny-Ryder from Reflections of a Book Addict
Stacy from Girls in the Stacks
V. Arrow, Panem mapmaker and etymologist

Team Gale

“‘Maybe I’ll be like the man in the Hanging Tree still waiting for an answer.’ Gale, who I have never seen cry, has tears in his eyes. To keep them from spilling over, I reach forward and press my lips against his. We taste of heat, ashes and misery.”

Shannan and Nancy from Girls in the Stacks
Melanie, Hunger Games fan
Brianna, Hunger Games fan
Jenn, Hunger Games fan
Aakshi and friends, Hunger Games fans

Team Katniss

“I want to tell him that he’s not being fair. That we were strangers. That I did what it took to stay alive, to keep us both alive in the arena. That I can’t explain how things are with Gale because I don’t know myself. That it’s no good loving me because I’m never going to get married anyway and he’d just end up hating me later instead of sooner. That if I do have feelings for him, it doesn’t matter because I’ll never be able to afford the kind of love that leads to a family, to children.”

Theresa from Down with the Capitol
Patty from HungerGamesMovie.org
Am. from The Capitol is Watching
Sam Cushion from IAmtheMockingjay.net and DistrictTribute.com
Ariel Birdoff, blogger and Wrocker extraordinaire
Rebekah, Hunger Games fan
