Oh. My. God. You know what I just realized about #TheFaultInOurStars?
MAJOR SPOILERS ABOUT THE FAULT IN OUR STARS AHEAD
On the last chapter, Hazel’s mom tells her it’s July 14th, Bastille Day, and she says that the storming of Bastille took place in such a day two-hundred and twenty three years ago. Of course the occupation of the Bastille happened in 1789. If you do the math, we can place a proper date to the events in the book. 1789 + 223 = 2012. That means that today, May 14th, 2012, Hazel is still alive. Moreover, according to Hazel’s own description, July 14th is twelve days after Augustus’ death, which happens on July 2nd, 2012. Which means, yes, Augustus Waters is not yet dead. I don’t know about you, but this discovery fills me with excitement. I know they’re fictional characters, but still. WE STILL GET TO SAY GOODBYE.
