Marianne’s Perfect Boyfriend

Prince Greening Grandemalion, also known as Prince Po

Description:  He is described as a dark haired young man of no more than nineteen or twenty years of age with sundarkened skin with one silver eye and one gold eye. His ears are pierced and he wears a pair of gold hoop earrings at all times and wears ten rings on his fingers. His upper arms are adorned with a pair of tattoos that he tells Katsa are meant to be found attractive, and to be seen only by the woman he will marry.

Why should he be My Perfect Boyfriend?

“I know you don’t want this, Katsa. But I can’t help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I’m afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you’ll… oh, I don’t know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me,” he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. “I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.” 

He ducked his head for a moment. He raised his eyes to her again. “I’ll give myself to you however you’ll take me,” he said, so simply that Katsa found she wasn’t embarrassed. She watched his face.
“And where would that lead?”
“I don’t know. But I trust you.”
She watched his eyes.
He offered himself to her. He trusted her. As she trusted him. 

“She found him standing before the water staring unseeing at its frozen surface. He was shivering. She watched him doubtfully for a moment.
“Po,” she said to his back, “where’s your coat?”
“Where’s yours?”
She moved to stand beside him. “I’m warm.”
He tilted his head to her. “If you’re warm and I’m coatless, there’s only one friendly thing for you to do.”
“Go back and get your coat for you?”
He smiled. Reaching out to her, he pulled her close against him. Katsa wrapped her arms around him, surprised, and tried to rub some warmth into his shivering shoulders and back.
“That’s it exactly,” Po said. “You must keep me warm.”
She laughed and held him tighter.”

For Prince Po, I chose Luke Pasqualino from Skins. Now, this week’s MPB was really difficult for me, just because I couldn’t seem to find a guy that could be the perfect Prince Po in my head. I ended up choosing Luke because he’s the one that most closely resembles Po (in my opinion), although if his skin was  bit darker and he was maybe less skinny, then… he’d be perfect.
Po is such a dream. He’s so great as a love interest, and an amazing person overall. He never asked Katsa to change for him, and he always offered her all his support. He believed in her completely, which was completely admirable. He makes Katsa shine in every way. I am Team Po all the way (even if there isn’t a love triangle in this series!).
Prince Po is from the Graceling series by Kristin Cashore

Jennifer’s Perfect Boyfriend

Peeta Mellark

Description: Starts as a 16-year-old boy from District 12. Of medium medium height with a stocky build and has ashy blond hair that falls in waves over his forehead with blue eyes. he bakes bread, cakes and icing cake, proving to be a talent he then takes to drawing and painting. He knows how to work with the cameras and can be convincing/manipulative. He’s easy-going, loving and self-sacrificing. Like Haymitch says to Katniss, “You know, you could live a thousand lifetimes and not deserve him.”

Why should he be My Perfect Boyfriend?

“I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now and live in it forever.” ~Catching Fire

“My nightmares are usually about losing you,” he says. “I’m okay once I realize you’re here.” ~Catching Fire

“And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me.” ~The Hunger Games

“Peeta, you were supposed to wake me after a couple of hours,” I say.
“For what? Nothing’s going on here,” he says. “Besides, I like watching you sleep. You don’t scowl. Improves your looks a lot.”
This, of course, brings on a scowl that makes him grin.” ~The Hunger Games

So I only say, “So what should we do with our last few days?”
“I just want to spend every possible minute of the rest of my life with you,” Peeta replies.” ~Catching Fire

“This time, there is nothing but us to interrupt us. And after a few attempts, Peeta gives up on talking. The sensation inside me grows warmer and spreads out from my chest, down through my body, out along my arms and legs, to the tips of my being. Instead of satisfying me, the kisses have the opposite effect, of making my need greater. I thought I was something of an expert on hunger, but this is an entirely new kind.”~Catching Fire

“You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real,” he whispers.
“Real,” I answer. “Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.” ~Mockingjay

“Sometimes when I’m alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.”~Mockingjay

“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.”~Mockingjay

I fell for Peeta in the second book, Catching Fire, because we could see a much more romantic side of him, in addition to how much he cares for Katniss and is willing to sacrifice himself in order for her to survive. And those things are admirable in a person. Also, gah he’s such a cheesy person some times, and even when he knew Katniss might have not felt the same way as him, he cared for her, and was there for her. Forget Gale, I was Team Peeta from the start <3

Peeta Mellark is from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
