JOHN GREEN FANFIC PREVIEW

maureenjohnsonbooks:

As you may or may not know, I am writing some JOHN (and also HANK) GREEN FANFIC for the HPA’s Equality for the Win fundraising campaign. I thought I’d put just the FIRST FEW PARAGRAPHS here, just to give you a TASTE. If you’d like to get the entire story, you can DONATE HERE.

************** 

            The day John Green realized Benedict Cumberbatch was hiding in his house was the day his collection of Nicholas Sparks novels spontaneously fell off the bookcase in his office. This surprised him. What surprised him more was that there was a face, shelf high, now clearly visible in the spot where the books had been.

            It was the face of Benedict Cumberbatch.

            “Who are you?” Cumberbatch said, Cumberbatchly.

            “I’m John Green,” said John Green. 

            “Clearly an alias. Let’s see who you are really.” Benedict Cumberbatch touched his hands together in prayer formation, and touched them lightly to his lips. “Weight evenly distributed, no reliance on the lumbar region of the spine, a slight hunch in the thoracic. You work at a standing job, at a counter. Your hair is tousled, quite high, indicating that you either use a lot of product or it’s stress. But no one with that haircut would use that degree of product and there’s no telltale smell or sheen, so it’s natural. Stress. Combined with the standing job, that indicates customer service. There’s residue of some kind of foodstuff on your shirt. You’ve tried to wipe it away but the trace is still there. Food service, then. The stain is high on your body—you work at a counter, most likely. The substance is high fat but highly viscous and faintly white. A commercially produced milkshake, most like. Considering your age, I’d suppose you’re likely to be advanced in this position, so I think we can reasonably conclude that you are the manager of a fast food restaurant. A Burger King, perhaps, or a Wendy’s.”

            “You’re right about the hair being caused by stress,” John said. “The white stuff is baby puke, and I stand at a treadmill desk, which you know because you’re looking at me standing on it. What are you doing behind my bookshelf?”

            “I’m thinking.”

            “About what?”

            “Things you couldn’t possibly understand,” said the Cumberbatch. “You’re boring.”

            It was at this point that John Green realized something was not right. One, Benedict Cumberbatch was concealed behind a bookcase in his office. The second thing was that Benedict Cumberbatch seemed to be behaving like Sherlock Holmes. These two things together painted a clear picture, and John Green didn’t like the look of that picture.

So John Green picked up his phone.

            In Missoula, Montana, Hank Green reached out of his massive outdoor hot tub to answer his phone. His hot tub was in the shape of Science itself and was the only one of its kind in the world.

HELLO, JOHN. said Hank Green. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW I’M IN MY HOT TUB SO KEEP IT CLEAN.

“Got it,’ John Green said. “Listen, it looks like Benedict Cumberbatch has been secretly living in my house.”

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH IS IN YOUR HOUSE? said Hank. YOU MEAN, LIKE, SHERLOCK?

“I mean exactly that,” John said. “And I think? He thinks? He’s Sherlock Holmes?”

THAT’S REALLY WEIRD. said Hank.

“I know.” John cast a glance over and saw Benedict Cumberbatch sniffing the edges of his books. “He got, like, behind the bookcase? You know that kind of free-standing one, that’s like a grid?”

OH YEAH I KNOW THAT ONE.

“Yeah, well, he got behind it. I don’t know how long he’s been there.”

HANG ON…

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Donate to find out.

Maureen Johnson, you guys.

Moses Bridge

This sunken bridge designed by Ro & AD Architects from the Netherlands, has in fact parted waters. The bridge is in the Netherlands and it is the most practical and fun way of accessing the stunning 17th century fortress.

What if, when they built this, there were two fish that were in love, and one was off getting dinner on the other side of the pond, and now they’ll never see each other again?

Damn it, Hank.

The Space Time Continuum: Thoughts from Dublin

We only have a concept of self because of our ability to symbolically recall our past and stitch together a story of who we are. In many ways we are never the same physically or psychologically from instant to instant; it’s that continuity that makes us us.

The Green brothers are my favorite.

Black Friday: An Accident of History

In which Hank answers the age old question “Why, on the day after we spend time being thankful for what we have, do we spend time wanting more?” It turns out it’s just an accident of history, and we can thank Abraham Lincoln.

I watched Hank Green’s latest video which was a sort of response to Charlie McDonnell’s recent video and immediately went to work on this poster, literally as I was still listening to the video for the first time. I’m thinking I may need to wallpaper my house with printouts of this design as reminders for me.
Thanks, Hank, for verbalizing something we all, as creators, feel, for bravely revealing your own vulnerabilities and for generally being awesome. Cheers.

I just found out that Hank Green is only 8 years older than me.

I’m going to go cry in this corner now, thanks.

If it makes you feel any better, eight years ago I had no idea what I was doing with my life. I had just been laid off and I had no job. I had spent four years getting a degree that appeared to be useless for everything except getting me into other schools. I had just moved out of my parents house and to a new town where I had few friends.

I was living in a 500 square foot apartment in this complex, which has an average rating of 1.5 stars on apartmentratings.com. 

But the point isn’t that you’re going to get way cooler and have a way better life in eight years (though you probably will.) My point is that I was pretty happy with my life back then. I had a supportive family and a really great girlfriend. There were people who cared about me back in Florida and I knew I could make it back there if I had to.

I was doing new and interesting things and meeting cool people and volunteering at a bunch of non-profits. I was exploring and learning and trying to figure out how to make it all work. It was hard and scary and it still is…because I’m still doing roughly the same things with roughly the same outlook on life.

Mix it up…talk to strangers…learn things…you’ll be fine.

The Greens are a lovely lot.
