1. Now, why couldn’t smehtoing have peaked my interest, as in being the highest point of my interest? I’m just curious as to whether or not peak could be used instead of pique in situations like this. are they both proper or does pique HAVE to be used?

      ‘Peak’ and ‘pique’ are different words but you’ll find many native speakers mistake them as well.

      To peak – to reach the highest point.
      To pique – to stimulate.
