AU where the SnK characters are actors and everyone screws up their lines
I haven't lived all that long yet, but there is something I firmly believe in. The people who have the ability to change something in this world, all without exception, have to guts to...ughhhhhh. Line?
This world is merciless, and it's also verilily...Verilily? What the..? Really? oh my God.
TITAAAAAAAAANS!!! TITAAAAAAAAAANS!!! Okay, sorry. I'll say it this time.
This is just my opinion, but when it comes to teaching somebody discipline...kick them in the face.
Using the deaths of our comrades...the fuck? Marco, get out of the shot, you're not in this scene!
On that day, humanity received a grim reminder. Giant naked people watch us sleep.
i laughed so hard at the “i don’t know” and “something is wrong”
the twilight one is like abstract poetry
They all kind of read like weird little stories in and of themselves. HG is about an amnesia victim trying to recall the facts people have told her about herself, but which she doesn’t remember. Twilight is a love story about two mimes. And Harry Potter is the tragic story of boy whom absolutely nothing happens to.
I’m going to give you some advice I wish I would’ve got when I was your age: live every week like it’s shark week.
Anonymous asked: So here is my problem with the whole Augustus/pretentious thing. I get that being pretentious is a part of his character, it helps him cope, etc. But like you have pointed out, that is a FLAW. And I think too many people put Augustus on a pedestal, and think everything he does is SO cool. If people treated the character as a very flawed character instead of some wise dream-boat, I think the TFIOS hate would subside quite a bit.
I agree with you there, and I’m going to steal my friend Morgan's words from a skype conversation about this we had earlier:
"The cigarette thing is a compulsion that he tries to pass off as suave; if you read the book at all you would know that. Like for Christ’s sake he does it every time he panics and his personal post-climax downward spiral moment is when he has literally no control over his own body but attempts to gain control /by purchasing cigarettes/ and almost dies right there… That is literally the moment where he //gives into death// and he does it after not being able to continue his supersticious self-protective habit. He is a scared child trying to save himself with such a painfully useless act, THAT IS THE POINT. He is trying to be an adult by saying things he thinks are smart. He is trying to be a hero by doing things that he thinks matter. But he is a child and coming to terms that he isn’t as smart as everyone else and he doesn’t matter as much either and he won’t get the chance to. How does that not break your heart?"
Augustus’s grand gestures and metaphors should not be romanticized, they should be pitied, and that just comes with an understanding of the book that some people have and some people don’t.
