When Princess Celestia had told her she was going to face her greatest trial ever, Twilight Sparkle had a few ideas about what it could be. Another monster to defeat, another kingdom to save, another threat to all of Equestria to subdue. She’d read all her books—some of them twice—and she’d been sure she was ready for anything.
But not this.
"What are those?” asks Rainbow Dash.
"They’re called people," says Twilight Sparkle. "I was turned into one. Remember, when Sunset Shimmer stole my crown?"
“That’s what you were?” asks Dash. “Gross!”
"What’s wrong with them?" asks Rarity.
Twilight looks down at the letter Princess Celestia sent, her jaw dropping further and further as she goes down. “Almost everything,” she says, horrified. “We have a lot to teach them about friendship.”
"Well, what are we waiting for?" asks Applejack. "Everypony pick a people and let’s go!"
"A person," Twilight corrects. "One people is called a person."
"Ooh, I want that one!" says Pinkie, bouncing off, and in seconds, Fluttershy is alone, looking at one of the people.
"Oh, um, hello," says Fluttershy, giving the person a nervous smile. She glances down at Twilight’s list, trying to see which one it is. "You must be Ned Stark’s bastard!"
Jon Snow lets out a resigned sigh, but he doesn’t bother denying it.
once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
I just don't see how someone can say: this person doesn't completely agree with John Green or This One Book That Deals With Cancer As A Plot Device, this must mean they have no heart when it comes to people who have suffered/passed away from cancer. Good hell, you're debating his writings and merit as a writer, not slighting cancer victims. How can someone feel devastated by your opinions on literature? Tsk. You fine.
I’m not sure, really.
I think maybe it could be upsetting to think that a person who doesn’t like his book is making a mockery of people suffering from cancer. Like the punchline of those posts I reblogged was “lol cancer,” (hint: it wasn’t)
My grandfather has been in and out of cancer treatment for years and my mother-in-law too, and I’m not particularly interested in cheap jokes about cancer.
What I’m interested in is poking fun at the pretentiousness of a white male author (who I already think is an ass) that uses cancer as the melodramatic backdrop of his YA novel. I’m actually not sure how those posts I reblogged, that made fun of his writing (that character fake-smoking a cigarette in the movie), were MORE triggery for cancer than John Green’s book to begin with.
I also don’t know what to do with someone chastising me with things like “I’m so disappointed in you,” over my opinion. My mom has been saying that for years and hardly made a dent, your anonymous disappointment in my making fun of John Green really doesn’t really carry a lot of weight.
