Awwww. Poor Gale. I know that he hasn't always been my favorite character, but it had to have been hard to sit idly by and watch Katniss volunteer. Makes me really think about what he was thinking and feeling, you know?
Also, you have a "Marge" instead if "Madge" on the line where she says, "If I end up going to the Capitol..." I do that all the time, so that's why I caught it.

I love this, I love that it is from Gale's POV I love him! You captured the essence of him perfectly, amazing!

Really cute and beautifully written.

I really like this story.
My comments are:
In the beginning, you can't really tell who's POV it is (besides the fact that it says Gale's POV in the summary) I just mean that it sounds alot like Katniss when you read it.
I really think it's great how you drug out the beginning and then kept the end short and consice ("Then we are all off to the Reaping and my plans fall apart. My gut had been right. This is the worst day of my life. I just had not seen how bad the worst thing that could happen could be.") These lines are just perfect.

Interesting that he was thinking of kissing her that morning. I'm not sure why I never thought of it but after reading your story it makes sense based on their conversation. Katniss focused so much on her plight that I forgot Gale's chances were even higher.

This is really good. I don't ship Gale and Katniss so I never read stories about them, but this is perfect. There are hints of Katniss, but it's mainly about Gale.
I love the way you've shown Gale here. I've not read any...or even given any thought...that Gale would've prepared his family and that he expected to be the one reaped. What an interesting thought? Now that I've read this, I can't believe I never thought of that and others haven't written it.
This is a wonderful insight into Gale's head...you've captured him beautifully!

I love this one too. You have to write more stories!

I love how you've written Gale, he doesn't sound as angry as in the books, more calculating and aware, which is perfect. I can visualize the story so clearly as it plays out, you have a wonderful way of describing and setting a scene without being to detailed. This is what I imagine Resping day would have been like for Gale, thank you so much for sharing it!

Nice work! The writing was good, just a little clunky at times. For instance, 'the sun is not up yet' instead up 'the sun isn't up yet' sounded a bit robotic. Also, Gale wasn't quite as bitter, stubborn, and fiery, his personality wasn't apparent so you had to tell us a lot. Still, good work and keep writing!

I am meant to be cooking dinner, but instead I read this (more fun). Well done. If there was more to read I would be doing that and not even be bothered with dinner. :)

Seriously awesome Gale POV. Excellently written. :)
His thoughts about Katniss are adorable.
(If she goes to the Capitol no one she leaves behind will starve. But the odds are in her favor. I say something snippy to her. Katniss defends her. She is right. I am being a jerk. I say that "It's no one's fault. Just the way it is," but the damage is done.) I love how you portrayed that he actually *felt* the wrongness of his comment, but also the helplessness he felt, that *need* to just say it.
(The next problem is that I am not very quiet about how unfair this is.) Understatement of a lifetime! :D
Great way to end it: (I just had not seen how bad the worst thing that could happen could be.)
Nice work! :) Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is such a good story. It is very interesting to see things from Gale's side.
