Reblog if it is 104% okay to come to your ask and just say ‘Hi can we be friends’ and then start asking you random questions.

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)

"Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie."

Thank you John Green. You should not have to defend your book or the movie that is an adaptation of, but you are entitled to do it when you feel it necessary. 

Love,

Ariel and Hercules have a lot in common:

  • they’re related,
  • both want something more,
  • and both did go the distance in the end.

the cigarette thing in the fault in our stars is so dumb you are wasting your money on an industry that is one of the largest causes of cancer just so you can make some lame ass far fetched metaphor

NO YOU ARE INCORRECT AND CLOSE MINDED ON SO MANY LEVELS

are you suggesting that it is close minded to say that cigarettes are a leading cause of cancer

Read the book, perhaps it will make more sense than a 1 minute clip.
