Isaac (The Fault in Our Stars)
Friendly reminder that Gus is so fucking pretentious that EVERYONE knew. You guys aren’t funny by shitting on TFIOS because of it. The lines you are “complaining” about, or whatever it is you are doing, come FROM THE FUCKING BOOK. You guys are just as pretentious as him and maybe you should read the book and give two fucks about what the characters say and don’t be an asshole.
This has been a PSA
(Isaac and Gus are just casually playing video games)
(Gus whips out a cigarette)
Isaac: Dude, you smoke in the house my mom will be pissed. She's afraid I might get cancer or something. (smirks at his own joke)
Gus: I'm not lighting it.
Gus: It's a metaphor.
Isaac: Oh God, not this again. (Pauses game) Can't you just write poetry like a normal pretentious teen.
Gus: I can't write.
Isaac: That's probably for the best, actually.
Gus: Can you unpause the game?
Isaac: Will you tell me what the oh so beautiful metaphor is.
Gus: You put the thing that can kill you between your lips, but you never light it. You never give it the power to kill you.
Isaac: Do you just keep a notepad next to you while you watch Soap Operas, or are you too busy jacking off to them.
Gus: This is a good metaphor!
Isaac: Like that one about crushing all flowers because they look as beautiful dead as alive?
Isaac: Or when you walked around wearing a sock on your head to prove that the reverse works as well?
Isaac: Or that one time-
Gus: Would you just let me do my freaking metaphors?
(Isaac smirks and turns back to the game)
Isaac: Well, I guess if you want to put a fag between your lips, that's your business. No judgment.
(Gus throws a pillow at Isaac, and they both laugh and resume the game)
You buy The Fault in Our Stars but you don’t read it. It’s a metaphor, see: you put the killing thing right in your shelf, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.
