i’m sorry it’s like 10 in the morning i just feel obligated to say that the “it’s a metaphor” meme is not mocking real 16 year old person augustus waters. it’s mocking a deliberately crafted textual construction. people make fun of stories in order to resist and break apart the structures and assertions of that story. making fun is a really important way of questioning shit and people are not in fact making fun of a made-up 16 year old with cancer. they’re making fun of a massively successful and influential cultural presence. they’re making fun of john green.
O K SO in the midst of this like. blitz that is zayn walking among us being a real live human eating spaghetti saying hi to fans like whatever
