Lost the Battle; Won the War.

My sister has a strange obsession with nuns and didn't notice she'd walked past one, then this happened.

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?!

Me: uhh....what

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.

this is the single most pretentious thing ive ever seen in my life im gonna vomit

i’m going to actually vomit this is stupid no one talks like this i’m so uncomfortable

Did you fuckers even read the goddamn book?! That’s the entire point of pre!relapse Augustus. He’s a child who’s dying from cancer, he knows he’s never going to grow up, so he tries to act grown up, and in doing so only projects this outward appearance of pretentiousness. 

I mean come on, he misuses words in half of his dialogue because he knows about big words but not how to use them properly. The entire point of Augustus is that he’s wearing this pretentious mask to hide the fact that he’s still just a teenager, he wants people to see him as an adult, not someone who will never be an adult.

Whilst I agree with this point, pre-relapse Augustus isn’t a child dying from cancer. He is however a kid who had cancer, lost his leg and lost his previous girlfriend to cancer and so tries to find meaning in everything and doesn’t waste time with niceties and formalities and says what he wants when he wants to because he’s seen how short life can be. And he sees a girl he’s attracted to, knows that she’s attracted to him but also knows she has a very serious form of cancer. 

That’s the WHOLE point of the line:

"I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

Also, Augustus is pretentious and kids DO talk like that. I promise you kids talk like that because when I was that age I spoke like that and I hung out with other kids who spoke like that. To put it down to solely the cancer thing totally strips away the point of TFiOS, which is giving humanity back to sick people. Augustus is a 17 year old that wants things that other 17 year olds want. He’s not just a 17 year old who had cancer or has cancer.
