0 Thoughts Upon a Time

tfios-changed-my-life:

So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book. 

Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness

Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)

And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him. 

THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.

JUST. LOOK. AT. DRACO’S. FACE.

#omg she punched my boyfriend.

#damn i’d love to tie up harry like that aw ye- WHAT THE FUCK GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY BOYFRIEND

i don’t ship drarry but i like relationship they have and i feel like this actually does speak volumes. because when harry’s just getting yelled at and berated, draco still thinks it’s funny, but when she actually hits him, he’s shocked and it’s not so funny to watch anymore

thankyou fellow non-darryian

Thank you non-drarryian’s for recognizing that Draco cares.

I don’t know if anyone’s talked about this, but I want to combine two theories I’ve read recently.

In the mind palace, we see a completely different John. He’s confident, focused, completely ready to face Sherlock when his eyes turn to him. But the palace snaps away, and in reality, John can’t face him.
Does Sherlock wish to see a more confident John? Or possibly, does he wish to see a John that won’t turn away, that will accept him head-on? A John who isn’t insecure about his feelings towards him? A John that won’t shut him out anymore because he died, or because John’s proposed to Mary, or any other excuse to wander off-track and not address how he feels.

both John’s in the cardigan are mind place John.  because that morning John was wearing a blue jumper.  also that’s the outfit John wore at the poor incident, so i think Sherlock likes to think of John as the man ready to lay down his life for him.

also in this moment John was bring Sherlock’s attention to the food Mrs. Hudson had brought up for him and of course in Sherlock food equals sex.  so John in the mind palace is asking about sex.

friendly reminder that when oliver wood addressed the gryffindor quidditch team as ‘men’, angelina johnson called him out on his sexist and misogynistic bullshit by reminding him there were women on the team too, and he listened to her without question ✿◕‿◕✿
