#oh oliver #you leave the island but it never leaves you #there are still scars on your chest and a dragon on your back #the things that happened there return to haunt you #nowhere is safe and nowhere is home #the death and the hurt of that place just follow you #so much happened there #so much will happen here #you woke up from a nightmare only to find yourself in another one #and the worst part of it was that you hoped it was all over #believed it was oliver #but then you beg tommy to open his eyes #and your mother begs thea to close hers #and there is one more death on your soul #one more weight to carry on a stack that’s already too high #too much loss and too much pain to process #it makes you so sure that Oliver Queen died on that island #because this must be your hell #the damaged oliver queen #arrow #spoilers #STEPHEN YOU SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO CRY #IT DOES THINGS TO ME #SPOILERS (via andyouweremine)

AND THERE YOU GO WRITING FREAKING POETRY IN YOUR TAGS.

what about when bucky joins the avengers and he’s back to his old overprotective boyfriend self and is always keeping an eye out for steve on missions

like he’ll perch up on the tops of buildings with his sharpshooter and gun down every baddy before they get a chance to come within five feet of steve

and steve just yells up to wherever he thinks the rain of bullets is coming from and is like “let me hit SOMEONE bucky!”

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. 

Bless this post. I can’t even believe the internet shit storm I logged into with everyone saying that Augustus sucks because they see a 1-minute clip of Gus being A SEVETEEN-YEAR-OLD BOY and trying to impress a cute girl. I, for one, was pretentious as shit at 17 and that was before selfies even existed.

also, the person i reblogged this from put this in the tags but i think it’s important- pretentious is not the worst thing a person can be.

That deserves to be repeated…
Pretentious is not the worst thing a person can be.
