one of the big issues i have with john green is that he doesn’t own up to criticism that’s based on reader interpretation
like dude i don’t care if the entire purpose of paper towns was to deconstruct the manic pixie dream girl trope
if it is possible for people to read the book as UTILIZING the manic pixie dream girl trope - and it is possible, because IT HAPPENS, and it probably happens because YOU UTILIZE THAT TROPE IN YOUR OTHER BOOKS - then guess what? THAT’S A VALID INTERPRETATION
it doesn’t matter what you intended - you should consider the possibility that you didn’t deconstruct it enough and you NEED to own up to the validity of multiple interpretations and actually engage in conversation about it, not just sit around sighing about the fact that people read your book “wrong”
gotta say it sounds like a crummy sub-Glee kinda show
i really need another few episodes to tell what it feels like. this episode was entirely world-building so i need to see how much they’re gonna deconstruct it, you know?
