What the World Looks Like After Watching The Fault in Our Stars

Spoiler alert: We're not okay.

The world is not a wish-granting factory, but on Monday night, it was. Some of the Candy Girls and I were one of the lucky few who got to watch The Fault in Our Stars' #LittleInfinities screening almost a month earlier than its June 5 premiere. It was everything we wanted and more. We were crying and laughing and squealing and blowing our noses and passing around tissue. After religiously following TFIOS news and swooning over GIFs the past few months, we couldn't believe that we'd finally seen it. "What is this life?!" Hazel Grace would say.

We're so in love with the movie that we've been looking at the world through TFIOS-tinted glasses, seeing symbols and metaphors everywhere. So in the spirit of Van Houten's favorite Magritte, here's the treachery of images—TFIOS-style. 

  1. This is not a glass of champagne. This is a glass of stars bottled up for a certain Mr. and Mrs. Augustus Waters.

  2. This is not a leather jacket. This is boyfriend material.

  3. This is not a pair of glasses. This is the end of always and the start of a new adventure.

  4. This is not a street. This is .88 to .89 of a little infinity.

  5. This is not an oxygen tank. This is a lifeline and a prison on wheels.

  6. This is not a blue dress. This is a mother’s love, trust, and approval.

  7. This is not a death suit. This is a reflection of the dapper dreamboat wearing it.

  8. This is not a bouquet of tulips. This is a surprise and a promise.

  9. This is not a pile of books. This is a pile of feels.

  10. This is not a cigarette. This is—you know it!—a metaphor.
