“And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production.”

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

How I Think Isaac Reacted to the Cigarette Metaphor

(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.

Isaac: What?

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?

Gus: I-

Isaac: Or when you walked around wearing a sock on your head to prove that the reverse works as well?

Gus: 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)

“I’ll fight it. I’ll fight it for you. Don’t you worry about me, Hazel Grace. I’m okay. I’ll find a way to hang around and annoy you for a long time.”
— Augustus Waters, The Fault in Our Stars. (via hazwaters)

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.

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.

“Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you.”
John Green (The Fault in Our Stars)
