No officer, you don’t understand! You put the gun in your hands, but you don’t pull the trigger. Why are you arresting me?? IT’S A METAPHOR!!!
I’m going to start doing illegal shit and when I’m confronted come up with some whack ass around the block explanation and turn it into a metaphor… because anything can be turned into a metaphor
I decided to throw on a feel good playlist and try and write but there’s a bunch of Cher and I’m still high from seeing her live and all I can do is sing… zero work is getting done here
People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???
that was the point???
like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???
It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?
You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote
100% sure people are still allowed to find that incredibly annoying and pointless and the fact that the main character is a little shit that is actually so unrealistic I think even fans of tfios can admit they’d slap him across the face if he were a real person
I’m worried people that read books and have little social lives need to get their noses out of the pages because if you’re a writer you know the people you write are so fucking unrealistic and y’all glorify them to the point it makes any mention of that character unbearable
I understand why people like the book and the whole reason john green wrote it is sweet and all but it’s not revolutionary… see A Walk to Remember… if you dig his style of writing then that’s fucking awesome but put your grown up panties on and stop going with the mainstream flow because I promise it’s okay to voice your complaints and issues with the flaws in your favorite books but this shit is feeling like 500 Days of Summer now
I’m done in with the commercial book industry I really can’t take it anymore
