    Favorite quote: This is very hard, but I'll go with: “When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.” 
    Favorite Narrator: Hazel
    Format: Paper, all.
    Order: Looking For Alaska -> TFIOS -> Paper Towns -> Katherines -> Will Grayson x2 -> Let It Snow

You had embodied the Great Perhaps-you had proven to me that it was worth it to leave behind my minor life for grander maybes, and now you’re gone and with you is my faith in perhaps. I can talk about how ‘fine’ I am. I can pretend that I just don’t care anymore, but that will never be true again. You can’t just make yourself matter then leave, because now I am irretrievably different."
