I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING
WHEN AUGUSTUS SAYS THAT IT WOULD BE A PRIVILEGE TO HAVE HIS HEART BROKEN BY HAZEL
THEY ARE IN AMSTERDAM
AND HE KNOWS HE’S DYING
AND THAT HE WON’T LIVE TO BE HURT BY HER
BUT HE’S SAYING THAT IT WOULD BE A PRIVILEGE TO LIVE THAT LONG, LONG ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEEL THE HEARTBREAK CAUSED BY HER DEPARTURE BECAUSE HE WOULD HAVE MORE TIME THAN THE DOCTORS THOUGHT
THIS FUCKING BOOK
FUCKING JOHN GREEN
do you know when you read a book that’s just so well written that when you finish it you can’t help but just sit there in silence for a few minutes just thinking about it, and then you reread the last couple pages, and just close the book and kind of stroke the cover in a weird sort of way and just keep thinking because it leaves such a strong impression on you that it just kinda haunts you in the back of your mind for the next few days
So, before I leave to Norway (!!) tomorrow, a little gallifreyan post. It says my thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations (it actually says cannot instead of can’t since I’m still not quite sure how one makes apostrophes in gallifreyan), a quote taken from the wonderful book The Fault in Our Stars by the awesome John Green. I plan to do some colouring though, when I return. Thoughts?
I just read a really beautiful screenplay.
I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.
