As much as I love the Hunger Games and dislike Twilight, I can't really blame one series for creating the "Team" thing. It was mostly the fans who came up with the "Team" thing; so you can't exactly blame the books, sometimes you have to blame the fandom.
What I think is most annoying is that the romance isn't even the biggest part of the series. At least with the lame-a** Twilight, the "romance" was the whole part of the story. But The Hunger Games is bigger than a stupid love triangle where you know who she's gonna end up with (even if no one told you she went with Peeta) so I think it's kind of dumb that people are latching onto the romance moreso than any other aspect of the story. Doesn't anyone want to discuss the themes?! cat_crying
The team thing originated from Twilight. Whenever someone claims to be of "Team Gale" or "Team Peeta" I tell them I am of Team Johanna Mason, or Team Finnick just because well... it makes just as much sense as what they are saying. Katniss chooses Peeta in the end so I might as well throw those two out there xD
I think the team stuff is just the twilight-fan-girl-trend-that-should-be-stopped. i hate the team crap, there really is no point.
There's something bigger behind these dumb, love issues about who's hotter or whatever..
