I could go on forever, probably. I have a general opinion on John Green books. The Fault in Our Stars romanticized death but it was okay. Looking for Alaska was fantastic. Paper Towns was very boring. All John Green books seem to have the same characters with different faces.

"See, but...that's bullshit. That's what everyone has been telling me since the beginning. 'Oh, you're gonna be okay,' and 'Oh, everything's fine," and like...it's not...it makes it worse...that no one will just come out and say it. Like, 'hey man you're gonna die.'" -Adam, 50/50
"Guys, I have never had a teacher aim a gun at me!" -Martin, Super 8
"Connor had done the right thing. For once, he had seen the situation more clearly than she-and he had probably ensured that Roland wouldn't physically threaten her again, at least for a while. And yet there's a part of her that can't forgive him for just standing there. After all, heroes are supposed to behave in very specific ways. They're supposed to fight, even if it means risking their lives. This is the moment Risa realizes that, even with all his troubles, she sees Connor as a hero." -Unwind
"Excelsior. It means, you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna take all this negativity and I'm gonna use it as fuel. I'm gonna find a silver lining, that's what I'm gonna do. And that's no bullshit. That's no bullshit. That takes work and that's the truth." -Pat Jr., Silver Linings Playbook
"The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That's guaranteed. I can't even begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else. But guess what? Sunday's my favorite day again. I think of what everyone did for me, and I feel like a very lucky guy..." - Pat Jr., Silver Linings Playbook
My favorite stories:
These Days by xSiriusly Insanex. This is a story with a OC named Magnolia, and her endeavors in Hogwarts alongside Charlie Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks. This is very well-written, and although it does feature an OC, reading this erased the Mary Sue perspective and prejudice I hold against OCs (even my own).
Untouchable by slycunningslytherin. This is a post-War fic about Scorpius Malfoy. While I typically hate post-War fics because they enforce stereotypes, this one doesn't. Certainly, there are plenty of stereotypes in this: the player, the slut, the brat, the jock; but each of them are pieced together not quite whole, as if they're missing the cliche that usually makes these characters, and it fills that empty space with a rather despicable trait possessed by humanity. It reminds me of the book Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson. It sort of makes you pit characters against eachother, but in a way that's still very humorous, and it makes you not entirely sure on whether you like anyone in this or not. Like noir.
Resurgence by CrowningAster. This is a post-War fic following the Order of the Phoenix during a very troubling time with a troubling conflict. In this, Fred is not dead but was severely injured during the Battle of Hogwarts. He and George must make difficult decisions concerning an OC and the Order of Phoenix. This is probably some of the best writing I've found yet on this site. It's a mystery.
Grow Young With Me by Taliesin19. This is a post-War fic following Harry's life as a single father, as Ginny died several years ago, causing Harry to become a recluse. He befriends Abby Waters, a Muggle waitress, causing him to come out of his shell. There is so much I love about this story: the characterization of Harry, the way his children affect him, Abby is such a unique character and hardly a Mary-Sue, Abby's own problems are things I can relate well to, and just the overall progression of the story is incredible. In a way it reminds of the Matt Damon/Scarlet Johansson movie We Bought a Zoo.
My best stories in my own honest opinion:
Here's to the Losers-separate snapshots, windows looking in, of Christmas Day 1998 after the war ended. 6 chapters. This is the most fun I've had writing on here. I love dialogue, snarky wit and humor, romance, and touching/drama stuff. This is probably the smoothest way I've executed those in the same story.
When He Was Twenty-the last moments of Fred Weasley before his untimely death; Fred reminiscing in memories of his life while anticipating death and his family's reaction. If my grammar hadn't been so God awful when I wrote this, it would be number one on my list of my best work. Unfortunately, my grammar is atrocious in this-just a warning. However, it makes up for it (hopefully-and the 15 people who favorited it can hopefully agree).
Desiderium-George struggles with depression years after Fred's death, despite being married with children and living in a happy facade. One of my most descriptive pieces, which I secretly wrote to prove to my English teacher I wasn't as incapable as I was letting on, although he's never read it. Anyway.
Blue Men-follows George and Ron and those they come in contact with following the end of the war, from 1997 to 2001. 4 chapters. This contains very blunt, numbed writing in the third person, meant to humanly portray grief and anger as an onlooker. Written for CrowningAster, who pretty much gave me the idea and helped me flesh out certain components.
Nevermore-follows Gale Hawthorne in post-war Panem, where he now works for President Paylor's homeland security, aptly named the Agency. Gale, along with two other operatives, must travel back to District 12 to track a former Capitol supporter suspected to be behind a series of attacks in District 4. Along the way Gale is reunited with his family, Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch, but things are a LOT different than they had been, so there's drama. There are also arcs that follow the two other operatives Gale is working with. This is probably one of my best pieces and was a lot of fun to write.
