If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.

The only thing preventing me from smashing my alarm clock at 6am is the fact that it’s my cellphone.

i’ve been taking dark photos. this is not a metaphor.

I’d marathon Lord of the Rings with you
Anonymous: To the person who said Augustus' metaphor was dumb, i don't know if you've read the book but Augustus had osteosarcoma, and the cigarette metaphor, like cece said, helps him feel somewhat in control of his life. It makes him feel like he has some power over whether he lives or dies. But sure, he may come off as a bit "pretentious", but he's a teenager, and like most teenagers, he thinks he knows everything. Seriously, Augustus is such a brilliant and well written character.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. LIKE WE’VE ALL NOT THOUGHT WE KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT LIFE AND USED BIG WORDS TO SOUND SMART, WITHOUT ACTUALLY KNOWING 100% WHAT THEY MEAN. and tbh everyone should know what a metaphor is.

i will defend augustus waters no matter what, but i will also respect others opinions. but i mean, a character that even tho he knew he were dying, he tried to make the love of his life’s biggest wish come true and sat her wish before any wish he could’ve had for himself just shows how amazing he is. 

alot of people love villians with tragic backstories and asshole characters but still they hate on an overall good character that has some flaws (like all characters). augustus is realistic, augustus is someone you would like to meet, someone you would like to exist in this world. i don’t want to meet a murderer, a cannibal, a drug dealer or a vampire. we need more characters like augustus waters. maybe that’s why they hate on him, because he is too realistic and its the real world we are trying to escape when we read.

I reluctantly let the word ‘love’ into my mouth so I have something to choke on when you leave.

one day sansa stark is gonna get pushed too far and she’s just gonna fucking lose her shit and start screaming and killing people and singing i’m not your toy by la roux and later surrounded by dead bodies she’s gonna compose herself and be like “i’m so sorry, that was very unladylike wasn’t it”

What else? She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you: You know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get so choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she like hers.
My life is made up of ‘I’m sorry’. I feel like I have to apologize to people, to things, to life itself. It’s like, ‘I’m sorry to be here’. I don’t want to disturb anyone.
