;n; gonna miss this room
I bet if you put Anthony Mackie and Robert Downey Jr. in the same room for long enough, their combined excitement at playing superheroes would make the Marvel cinematic universe become reality.
just want to raise a glass for oberyn for being one of the few characters who is actually disgusted and enraged by rape and the rape culture of westeros while being non-white, non-het, and not a huge piece of crap towards bastards and non-noble ppl
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.
E.T., what about E.T.?

If you think instrumental music is stupid you can decrescendo out of my life
cambridge university students were asked on campus why they needed feminism. here are 60 answers. click the link for over about 600 more.
I’m crying, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week
Reblogging AGAIN because just last week my brother ‘liked’ a picture on fb in which a woman explained why she does NOT need feminism. Her reasons included (among others) “I make my own decisions and I’m in charge of my body and I don’t nee ‘epowering’” … “I like men and refuse to demonise them” …
I just couldn’t get over the extreme ignorance and stupidity of this woman and, the fact that my own brother liked it lets me know he TOO is ignorant to the true nature of real feminism and has been on the receiving end of man-hating extremists.
So yeah, reblogging because it STILL needs to be seen and heard.
