    Gosh the single best exchange I heard while living in Boston was between these two vivacious New Yorkers I was walking behind. They were comparing Boston to NYC and one of them was like “This city is too clean. I bet everyone on this street has bathed today” and I lost it for a solid minute ad they never noticed

  6. Anonymous said: "It's a metaphor" I have no doubt that you completely understand and stand by this statement that the act of putting an unlit cigarette in Augustus Waters' mouth is in fact a metaphor. But for some folks, we don't see it asa metaphor, we see it as situational irony, or a simple statement. Please explain how it is a metaphor.


    Well, a character in a novel saying that something is a metaphor is not the same thing as the author of the novel saying that it’s a metaphor. Gus’s intellectual grasp often exceeds his reach (he calls a monologue a soliloquy, and misuses quite a few of the bigger words in his vocabulary). But I do think the cigarette is a metaphor, albeit a different one for us than it is for him.

    Gus’s idea is that the cigarette is a metaphor for illness, and he keeps it unlit and in his mouth as an expression of his power over illness. “You put the killing thing between your teeth but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” Gus’s thinking here is that HE has the power. This is why he tends to use the cigarette when he’s feeling nervous or powerless. (He’s also using the most famous commercially available carcinogen to make this statement, so obviously there’s a connection there in his mind: Humans can prevent cancer by not smoking; cancer is something we can have power over; your job is not to give cancer the power to kill you; etc.) 

    But of course Gus is wrong about all of this, or at least almost all of it. You may have SOME control over whether you die of cancer (you can choose not to smoke), but in most cases humans don’t have control over illness. “You don’t give it the power to do its killing” imagines more agency over illness than we actually have, because in the end much of the fault is in the stars, not in ourselves. So to us, the unlit cigarette is a metaphor for our false perception of control, and our urgent need to feel in control. It’s no coincidence, then, that when Gus’s life is spiraling out of control and he finds himself powerless before fate, he tries (and fails) to buy cigarettes.

  7. 'Come along, Pond’ wasn’t invented by me at all, it was invented by Matt. Because he used to, probably still does, call Karen ‘Pond’ all the time. So on the day that we were shooting the photographs of their outfits for the very first time and they were moving to get photographs of the very first shots of them in costume, he turned to Karen and said ‘Come along, Pond.’- Steven Moffat

    Continuing in my quest for a lit-themed wardrobe

    FANGIRL! By rainbowrowell! YAY!

    I painted this today, and I’m totally going to bring it along to wear at LeakyCon this year. It’s perfect - both for its fangirl-ish-ness, and to wear for the lit track! :D

    You are cosplaying a book OMG. I LOVE IT!!
