Tv tropes Nerdfighters:

◥▶◀◤
Any fellow Nerdfighters who are also tropers? I know I can't be the only one, after all VlogBrothers has a page.

DFTBA!

I love their youtube videos, especially Crash Course. I haven't read any of John's books yet, though.

Me either but I plan to.

You definitely should.

I've read Paper Towns, and have just recently gotten my hands on Looking for Alaska (though I was looking for either Will Grayson, Will Grayson or The Fault in Our Stars).
And now it is your turn
Your turn to hear the stone, and then your turn to burn

I'm still looking into them, I want to start with Paper Towns as that seems the most interesting to me, then Looking for Alaska.

I'm convinced that our modern day analogues to ancient scholars are comedians. -0dd1

So I might be getting the boxset of John's books for x-mas. :3

Lucky you!

Confession: I keep putting off reading An Abundance of Katherines because that was the name of my first and only major high school crush.

Though now that I've read John's other books, I think I'm ready to give it a shot.

Ms
I read "An Abundance Of Katherines" first, before I even knew about Nerdfightaria. Then my friend saw me reading it and went "OMG, is that a John Green book?!", and instructed me to watch the videos and let her borrow the book when I'd finished it if she lent me "Paper Towns". cool

Update: I've read Paper Towns. I loved the complexity of the characters' motivations, and the deconstruction of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl archetype.

Some people think I'm strange. I think it's sad that they can't see all the awesome stuff going on in my head right now.

Okay, I did get that boxset for X-mas. I'm reading Papertowns first, I'm about mid-way through.

DFTBA dudes.

And I the subject of books, every John Green book I've read has brought me to tears, twice in some cases.

Admittedly that's only Paper Towns, Will Grayson Will Grayson, and Lookiing for Alaska, but still.

And Hank is just made of pure win.
It's a charm. Keeps away the nargles.

I watch Crash Course, also I've read Paper Towns.

Still reading Paper Towns, sadly not even John Green can speed up my reading.

Btw are they're any tropers on the nerdfighteria forums as well?

You mean you want to know if there's any tropers in my pants?
And now it is your turn

Yes are they're any in my pants?

Good morning, Hank! It’s Thursday. Good to meet you all!

So I’m one of those (probably really rare) people who watches the Vlogbrothers’ videos obsessively—Crash Course and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries included—but *cough* actually didn’t really like John’s books (except The Fault in Our Stars, which had me crying). I don’t have anything against them; I just wasn’t enthralled by them, even though they’re wonderfully witty and quirky and philosophical. Am I the only one?

And sorry, I haven’t been on any nerdfighteria forums—perhaps oddly, since I’ve been a nerdfighter longer than a troper. I’m delighted to meet a few people who are both, since I have heaps of irl nerdfighter friends and absolutely no troper friends. surprised

I’d sooner be eaten by Him than fed by anyone else.

Only two of my irl friends know of TV tropes. They say that it's ruining my vocabulary.

I'd love to have more Nerdfighter friends, it's not that popular here.

I'm still reading paper towns but he once mentioned it always seems to be friday in his books. He wasn't kidding.

Fellow Nerdfighter here, and major troper lurker! So, those of you who have read TFIOS, how do yuo feel about the casting of Hazel? any fancasting for Augustus?

◥▶◀◤
I still haven't read that one yet but I did just finish Paper Towns last week and I'm still absorbing the final few pages. Wow. I'll likely start TFIOS once I finish processing it.

DFTBA. (Darling, fetch the battleaxe.)

I'll read one of John Green's books soon... I swear...
