Storyboard Description

Comic about Hazel Grace's hamartia and Augustus Water's metaphor.

Storyboard Text

  • Are you kidding me? Do you really think it's cool? I can't believe this. You just ruined the whole thing.
  • What whole thing? And what are you talking about? It's just a cigarette.
  • You know. The thing where a boy who is completely unattractive nor intelligent stares at me and compares me to actresses and asks me to watch movies at his house. But as expected, there is always a hamartia and a twist and yours was that even though you literally had CANCER, you are giving money to a company that creates yet more cancer.
  • Hazel Grace, they don't kill you unless you light them. It's a metaphor. You see, you put the killing thing in between your teeth, but you never give it the power to kill you. I've never lit one.
  • It's a metaphor, huh... I see you choose your behaviours based on their metaphorical explanations.
  • Oh, yes. Exactly. Didn't ruin anything after all, now did I?
