honestly, i wouldn't want an augustus waters. he was lovely and funny and always made grand gestures, but he did this partly because he knew they didn't have all their life to make memories like that. i'm not hazel––i haven't had to go through what she did. i'm glad i haven't. having an augustus waters means having someone so wonderful for a fleeting moment. maybe the moment was beautiful, but the majority of tfios readers are not under their circumstances. i don't know, just my thoughts.
