Friendly reminder that when John Green compliments The Fault in Our Stars movie he isn’t complimenting his work and his writing. John had no part little part* in the making of the movie and he is congratulating the cast and crew of the movie. Also, he has a right to be excited about something he wrote being enjoyed by others.
*I was corrected. John did have some part in the making of the movie, but my overall message still stands.
His reaction to “Hey Deaaaan” makes me want to throw myself into the sun. Could he possibly be thinking of a certain similar looking fellow who normally says “Hello Dean”? Yeah don’t mind me - I’ll just be over here in the corner crying.
<p><b>what she says:</b> i'm fine<p/><b>what she means:</b> why do jk rowling and the pottermore staff think ron's only talents are eating sweets and supporting the chudley cannons? have they suddenly been struck with amnesia so severe that they've forgotten the events in all seven books that lead to everything his character is? or have they been exposed to the movies for too long? do they honestly think that ron is just there for comic relief? just there to be 'one of harry's two best friends', eating sweets and supporting the chudley cannons? why is he treated so unfairly by the very people that are supposed to understand his character best? does the staff at pottermore realise how many people relate so very deeply to ron and all that he represents? and that, by reducing his character to nothing more than 'eating sweets and supporting the chudley cannons' they take away that relatability, as well as indirectly offending the thousands that identify strongly with ron's personality and storyline? what are they doing? why are they doing it? will ron weasley ever get the appreciation he deserves? when will this injustice end?<p/></p>
I love this moment so much. I love that Hiccup doesn’t even hesitate to jump. There is no guarantee that he’ll reach Toothless in time. It’s dangerous and reckless, but he still does it anyway. Like he just risked his life to bring Toothless back from the Bewilderbeast’s control, and here he goes again. Because the thought of not rescuing Toothless isn’t even an option. And this is all him. This isn’t his Night Fury making him look cool or saving him or doing half the work. No. Toothless is absolutely helpless here and it’s all on Hiccup to make the save. He’s not the fifteen year old kid playing dragon rider anymore.
