Check me out on YouTube?
Me: You just walked past a nun.
Her: What? No I didn't.. Seriously?!
Me: Yeah, take a look back.
Her: Omg! What's she doing out of her brothel?!
Apologies are weird because someone can do something that hurts you so much and the fact that 5 letters are meant to make that go away is weird.
Also can we talk about the fact that there are at least 10 blogs I follow that LOVED tfios when it first came out and now it’s popular you’re all acting like you wouldn’t touch it with a bargepole?
Anonymous asked: i think you attribute more meaning to tfios than john green originally intended
Oh, I hope not. Because if TFiOS was meant to be “just another love story” then I might as well never pick the book up again.
Although, as my main man John Green says “books belong to their readers.”
However, I do stand by my belief that the main point of The Fault in Our Stars is to give humanity back to people who are sick or dying. Hazel and Augustus are meant to be people first, but many people see them as their illness first. And I feel like we do that all too often. Sick people can’t do this, disabled people can’t be sexually active, yadda yadda yadda.
Hazel and Augustus are teenagers wanting the same things teenagers the world over want. They want to travel and read and listen to music and drive aimlessly and fall ridiculously in love the only way you can when you’re 16. They want to do those things because they’re teenagers. Their cancers shouldn’t be some tinted visor that they’re seen through. And yet, they are. And I think that’s what TFiOS is about. And you can disagree with me all you want, that doesn’t make me less wrong or you more right. Because your opinion is as valid as my own.
