This is the best
Hello, this is a friendly psa from an unhappy person.
Not everyone likes to read. Not everyone can read. A lot of people struggle to read. However, just because they don’t or can’t read doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy a good story.
For example, I cannot read Jane Austin’s works. I’ve tried and tried but I can’t. However, the movie and play adaptations of her novels are some of my favorite stories.
I like Marvel movies and anime, but I cannot read manga/comic books/graphic novels. I don’t know why, just that it is difficult for me to do so.
I have dyslexic friends who have to struggle to read a few pages, let alone an entire novel, but they love movie adaptations.
If I were to go into a movie I was looking forward to seeing but never read the book and saw this it would probably ruin my entire day. Depending on my mood, I may even start a fight over it.
I remember accidentally ruining that Dumbledore dies to my brother and it devestated him because he didn’t want to be spoiled and was a slow reader so wasn’t there yet.
Please if anyone thinks this is a funny thing to do, realize that you may ruin someone’s day.
If someone hasn’t/doesn’t want to/can’t read a book, that doesn’t give you the right to be an asshole and ruin the movie for them.
You’re not a special snowflake for having read TFioS and knowing how it ends. You are, however, a massive douche for spoiling it for other people.
Why would you even want to spoil it? Like, what kind of twisted satisfaction does this give you? Do you feel better now that you’ve ruined the experience for others? Do you feel like a good person?
Grow up, for fuck’s sake.
I totally agree, I am a slow reader due to my dyslexia but sometimes I’ll wait to see a film until I’ve read the book - sometimes I wont. In the case of this, I have been putting the film on hold until I finish the book but now it’s been ruined for me. I’m not annoyed that this showed up on my feed, although I am very upset it’s been spoilt for me because I’m glad someone’s said these things.
Im actually extra pissed because I’ve put every thing on hold so if I saw someone wearing this I would say something.
And although I’ve waited, I think it’s perfectly fine if people don’t - they might still read the book or were half way through and got so excited they just had to see the film first (I’ve done that)
I hate pretentious people that have a go at film ethuhaists - why can’t you enjoy film more? it doesn’t make you less intelligent or less of a fan! you just come across as an asshole when you act better than every one else and as mentioned above - some people can’t fucking read or find it really difficult and you’re only making them feel worse. urgh. rant over. im so angry.
also gonna tag this spoiler so people with blacklist don’t have to see it.

MY HEART JUST BROKE
Fan Ho’s 1950s Hong Kong street photography faced many unique challenges, including those who were wary of his work and motives.
These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.
And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart.
Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.
