#TeamAugustus #OneLeggedPonyFTW the day! And I seriously couldn’t be any more excited or honored to tell you all about the amazingly spectacular Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green! And if you feel the same, be sure to rock any of the following hashtags on twitter with the voting link! #TeamAugustus or #TeamGus OR #OneLeggedPonyFTW 

ALSO! Be sure to tweet the hell out of John Green and let's see if #TeamGus can get an RT from the man himself! (did you vote yet?)


  So, where shall we start with Mr. Waters? Perhaps his adorably sexy looks? Yes, I do say, that’s probably a splendid place to start!

 Augustus Waters has short, rich dark brown hair and sharp blue eyes that contrast oh so seductively. He’s lean yet muscular and just tall enough for tip-toe kisses. And behind those luscious lips? He keeps a set of smiles. His crooked one for when he’s trying to be sexy and his real one, the one that’s too big for his face and makes him look adorable.  Oh, also. His voice has a look of it’s own, described as, “low, smoky and dead sexy.” *THUD* Read me a bedtime story PUH-LEASE! (i think he looks a little shumfin' like this    YUM.) vote for hotness! 

    “He’s not that smart.”
“She’s right,” Augustus says. “It’s just that most really good-looking people are stupid, so I exceed expectations.”
“Right, it’s primarily his hotness.”
“It can be sort of blinding,” he said.
“It actually did blind our friend Isaac.”
“Terrible tragedy, that. But can I help my own deadly beauty?”
“You cannot.”
“It is my burden, this beautiful face.”
“Not to mention your body.”
“Seriously, don’t even get me start on my hot bod. You don’t want to see me naked, Dave. Seeing me naked actually took Hazel Grace’s breath away,” he said, nodding toward the oxygen tank.

And sure, Gus is a horrible driver and he makes terribly dry cheese sandwiches. And yeah, he’s addicted to the video game Counterinsurgence and possibly encourages delinquent behavior * cough egging Isaac’s ex girlfriend’s car cough* also *cough vote cough*

But Gus is someone who will be there for you no matter what. Through your ups and downs and your highs and lowest lows. He’s that kind of guy. He’s witty and sarcastic and can make you laugh so hard it hurts: 
“It’s difficult to ascertain whether he is trying to arouse her or perform a breast exam.”
And he’s intelligent and magnificent and makes you wonder how he’s a 17 year old boy:
“They don’t kill you unless you light them,” he said. “And I’ve never lit one. It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do it’s killing.”
And he’s thoughtful and caring and makes you pray so hard that he was real and you could be with him for just one day:
“I didn’t save my wish.”
“Ah, but I saved mine.”
"Augustus, really. You don’t have to do this.”
“Sure I do,” he said. “I found my wish."

 He’s basically everything you could ever want in a boy.


Augustus Waters may be a self aggrandizing bastard, but it’s honestly impossible to walk away from him without developing some kind of Augustus Waters Fetish. Trust me, I know! 

He may cause you to do this:

        But I assure you, he is worth all of the tears.

So vote for Gus, okay? Okay. 

Check back at 300 votes for a GIVEAWAY!! :D
