It's that time of year again: Crush Tourney Time! As most of you already know! (Unless you've been living under a rock or under the sea or underwear. BAHA. Bad joke.) Ehem, anyway. For some reason i canNOT stay away from these things. The Crush Tourneys seem to consume my thoughts, twitter feed and internet screen for months at a time. Why is this?
Because i am majorly addicted to falling in love with fictional boys.
But you already knew this.
Anywhoooo! This year i got the undoubtedly incredible honor of being the advocate for a boy so spectaularly great that i couldn't possibly put into words how much he means to me.
This boy made me laugh uncontrollably, sigh with swoontastic delight and cry with every fiber of my soul.
This boy...loving this boy kind of feels like this:
Do you know who i'm talking about yet? I'll give you a few hints:
"It's a metaphor."
"Get it! Kick the shit out of that chair!"
"You know, the primary taste I'm getting is not-Oranjee."
“Maybe 'okay' will be our 'always.”If you guessed Harry Potter, you are horribly wrong. And i'm thinking i should probably slap you. BUT if you guessed Augustus Waters from John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, then you are CORRECT!! And may the sun forever shine on your beautiful spirit!
YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS. THIS BOY. THIS BOY IS EVERYTHING. Tell me you've met him!?! Tell me you LOVE him!?! Tell me he is everything!?!
Ehem...sorry i got a little carried away there. All right, why am i here!? Because i need YOUR HELP! Yes, you! And you! You too, you silly goose, get over here! How have you been? Good? GOOD! So, on Monday JULY 23RD (THIS MONDAY!) Mr. Augustus Waters will be going up against Daemon from Jennifer Armentrout's Lux Series. And i hear Daemon is, like, a major stud. So it'll be a tough match.
The world is NOT a wish granting factory, we have to MAKE THIS HAPPEN! And even though it's this one-legged pony's first time around the corral, let's get him past round one, because he DESERVES IT. He really, really does. Out of every and any fictional boy, Augustus Waters DESERVES a win. If you know him, you know this.
And of course, incentives will be involved.
Perhaps a John Green Book Bundle.
Maybe your choice of purchase from the DFTBA webstore.
Possibly even my The Hectic Glow wristband.
What i do know is that you should head over to The YA Sisterhood on Monday and VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! for Gus, because he would love and appreciate that, and so would i!
So vote for Gus, okay?
more avi's coming tomorrow! Or you'd like to submit your own Augustus Waters creation shoot me and e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org!
