Two Roads by muggleriot Two Roads by muggleriot
Another one of the fanart100 list, Two Roads. I suppose I turned something literal into a metaphor, and that metaphor into something literal again. I bet you don't need an explanation for this one ;)
What road would you pick?

GO TO THE BAKERY! that's what i'd do. or the ocean in district 4 ;] finnick!
and katniss? WHAT THE CRAP. one of these these two boys obviously love you. gale wouldn't care if you chose peeta, he would just find another girl. but peeta would never more on, neither would you.

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

~The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

no problem, its just that your drawing reminded me almost exactly of this poem.

the alternate road, already worn, is gale, since he's been claimed by other girls before...
the road that she takes, the one not trodden, is peeta's, since it seems to be lusher....

its almost scary how similar this is

~MJ spoilers!~

I still don't know. I mean I love Peeta and Katniss.(am I a horrible person for liking hijacked Peeta better then regular Peeta? :XD:) But what if Gale came back? Would she have still chosen Peeta, would it have just taken her longer? I mean I know everyone hates Gale for the bombs and then not coming back but I think he really did love Katniss more then we know. But, I think he might have known Peeta was better for her and him not coming back was maybe his way of letting her go. In the end she didn't really make the decision, it was made for her by the boys actions. (well Gale, who I personally still love)
That's just my opinion anyway. beautiful piece. (the sign panel makes me thing of the Road Runner. ;))

I actually never hated Gale, he was an amazing friend and support for Katniss, he was always there for her, although I love Peeta and I could be called "Team Peeta" all the way, I'm never and never was against Gale, I was upset he didn't come back, I feel he was like... escaping Katniss' decision, bnecause he knew she wouldn't pick him or something, but I don't blame him for the bombs. It's like blaming gun creators for the death of everyone killed with a gun, know what I mean?

Cristina37 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
That's pretty much how I feel. I always loved Gale and I honestly didn't know who I wanted her to choose until he didn't come back and I realized how disappointed I was. I never blamed him for the bombs either, his own invention got used against him. It's supposed to be another example of how horrible the Capital is and not meant to be something to hold against Gale. Exactly, though people do blame the makers instead of the shooters, so I guess it doesn't surprise me that people blame Gale. Sometimes I wonder if people really understood the story and what it's really about. Or did they just latch on to certain things and completely miss the bigger picture?

I believe many, not most, but many of the fans/readers only got to experience the "love-triangle" inside the whole plot, that is about so much more, and their only worry was whether would Katniss pick Peeta or Gale, and I don't think that's good, I mean, anyone can read as they please, but the story does not focus on that, why would they? Anyways, I really loved Gale, I wish I had a friend like him, really, and if it was I, I'd probably have been in the same situation as Katniss, but maybe it was all just a big "friendzone moment" and she fell harder for Peeta than she did for Gale.

I agree. My sister and I were watching the movie the other day and we were discussing how surprising it was that it is go popular with young girls because it's such a messed up story. So I think it's mostly the younger crowed that focuses more on the love story(I know there are exceptions) whenever I talk to my younger cousin about it, all she talks about is Peeta and Katniss(and how hot Josh is). I mean I think she understands the story but that's not her main focus.
I really love Gale too and think he is a grate, well rounded character. I think she really did love him but like she said, they were too much alike. Whereas Peeta gave her hope when there was none and helped her look at this horrible world in a more positive way. Which after everything, was something she really needed or else the poor girl would have most likely gone absolutely crazy.

Couldn't agree more, I swear. It's great being able to discuss opinions like this with people smart like yourself, it gives the book a new perspective I'm open to, getting out from all the "groupie" part of the fandom! :)

Cristina37 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
lol, I'm completely with you. Sometimes I feel like I fined myself getting caught up in the 'groupie' aspect and then I'm mad at myself if I stay there too long because the story deserves so much more. So it is nice to fined people who will delve deeper into the story with you and remind you that as deep as your own mined might be able to go, others can help you go even deeper and open your mined to things you weren't even expecting. Instead of constantly shallow-ing the darker, scarier, but usually more important points.
Thank you for taking the time to discus it with me, I appreciate it. :aww:

Love this! It makes me think of the poem that goes;

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both,
And be one traveler, long I stood,
And looked down one as far as I could,
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
For it was grassy, and wanted wear,
Though as for that, the passing there,
Had worn them really about the same.

But both that morning equally lay,
In leaves no step had trodden black,
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Though knowing how way leads onto way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh,
Somewhere ages and ages hence,
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the road less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


...Wow. I just recited all of that from memory. And I thought I didn't like poetry. ^^;

Again, great picture.

It was never really a question, she was just blinded by her compassion and confused from her lack of experience with love and the many problems she faced at the time. Once things cleared up enough, it was simple for her. Nonetheless, I love the symbolism of the drawing.

I actually agree with you, since I read the books I've thought this way. *spoiler* Peeta and her were always meant to be, and deep inside she knew who she needed and wanted to be with, she just had too much pressure from the Capitol and not enough time to think or worry about her feelings like a regular teenager. Anyhow, thanks really much for the compliment and I really love the fact that you expressed your thoughts instead of commenting the usual "ZOMG PEETA" or "forest. definitely slkdajdlksa GALE" (although I am also a fangirl sometimes, it's also good to get some deep coversation too :) )

In the literal sense: forest, metaphorical: bakery. I mean I'm a fighter like Katniss, so naturally we need people with "lover" personalities to balance us out. Seriously, I always find out that lovers are the only ones that can soften out fighters. Fighters just kind of bring out the worst in each other. /end rant. Anyway this is great!
