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.

I really like Harry Styles: the way he treats women.
A lot of the time, the way it’s portrayed is that I only see women in a sexual way. But I grew up with just my mum and sister, so I respect women a lot.

#i hear the criticism a lot that harry’s just playing to the cameras #or he’s media trained #or he’s saying what he thinks people want to hear #and while i personally disagree with most of that #at the end of the day i really don’t even fucking care if he means it #i care that he DOES it #i care that he refuses to engage with the premise of those questions #i care that he says the word objectify in an angry way #i care that he’s not another in a long line of male celebrities that goes along with the bullshit #that further underscores to young women that they are a commodity #that they are ornamental #that they are scores on a card #young girls who are watching this don’t know the difference between media savvy and actual humanity #it doesn’t fucking matter to them #it matters that harry styles says that women are not games #it matters that he doesn’t talk about tits and arse #one direction is where it is because of young women #and harry seems to get that #whether or not his interview answers are tongue in cheek doesn’t fucking matter at all #at the end of the day you hear what he’s saying #it matters to the kids watching this #and to the rest of us too (x)
