Falling with style.

So lately a lot of people are getting angry because Augustus is portrayed as “pretentious” in the movie. It makes me angry that people keep saying that, but that’s actually how Augustus is. Isaac even calls him that at his funeral, as shown above. It’s a character flaw.

Hmmm… kind of like everyone else? someone picks up an apple and goes “apple!” until she repeats it? (also kissmanga.com/Manga/C…) but idk…

Hm yeah, I just need to find a way to connect running away to finding someone willing to teach her. (also cute comic!)

Anyone have any idea how a runaway Alien would learn English? She’s 16 Earth years and would probably pick it up quicker than the average human but idk exactly how it would go. She needs to find a human that doesn’t want to hand her in to the Alien-police.

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.
