the joke is that john green is a terrible writer
what is this, some cigarette metaphor bullshit
Ok kids, gather round. Story time. Augustus Waters had osteosarcoma, right? It’s a terrible illness, which could have killed him. He had no control over what was going to happen, whether he was going to live or die. And this terrified him. The cigarette gave Augustus the allusion of power over life and death. He “put the killing thing between his teeth, but didn’t give it the power to do its killing”. That’s why, later in the novel, he was so distressed when he lost his pack of cigarettes and tried to go get new ones for himself. He was sick enough that even the allusion of control over his condition had fallen away, and he needed to get it back. But he failed, because in the end he didn’t have control over his illness. It’s a metaphor for Augustus’ mistaken impression that he could control the entirety of his fate. That’s why the book is called The Fault In Our Stars. It’s disagreeing with the famous quote, “The fault is not in our stars, but in ourselves”. It’s saying that you can’t always control what’s going to happen, or whether you get hurt, but you can control how you react to those things and still have a worthwhile life. “You don’t get a say in whether you get hurt in this world, but you do get a say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”
that me metaphor
…..that is the stupidest fucking thing i have ever read in my life john green is a terrible writer.
its a metaphor, you see. you place your cursor right upon the killing thing, but you dont actually click on it.
I kind of love the idea of Steve being bi. Like, when he was younger, he’d see a guy and think he was good looking, but he’d just stamp that down or chalk it up to being an artist and finding beauty in everything. Then he meets Peggy and he really likes her so he thinks of himself as “fixed”.
When he wakes up in our time he stumbles into learning about the different kinds of genders and sexual orientations and it just hits him like “Oh. I guess that explains it.” And after New York when things settle in to something like a routine and he actually has a chance to look around and Natasha starts on her mission to set him up, he starts to really accept and become okay with being attracted to men and women.
One day when they’re heading out on a mission, Natasha brings up another woman from SHIELD and Steve just goes “What about that guy who works in reception?” and he says it casually, but he’s really sort of nervous because she’s the first person he’s told. Natasha just pauses for a beat and looks at him before shaking her head “Kevin? No, he’s got a terrible hair cut. You can do better.” And after that she starts including guys in the people she suggests to him.
idk I just like that headcannon
A+ relationship: Playing video games together, rough sex, pizza and awful humor that only you two can laugh at.

Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives
you know you’ve fucked up when Twilight does something better than you
They cast like…3 real Native Americans to play Native Americans. The rest weren’t even Native American at all.
You know what’s sad? When Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign led to school’s implementing a healthier food menu and kids start THROWING OUT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES BECAUSE THEY’RE SPOILED LITTLE BRATS, that most of the comments in the articles about this are calling Michelle a ‘brown bitch’. Showing your true colors America and I think they’re very white if you know what I mean.
