as-howarth asked:

Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?

fishingboatproceeds answered:

I guess I am both happy and sad.

I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.

But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.

John Green being sassy as usual. We love your books, John!

Obviously this isn’t going to be particularly interesting to many people, but I have received this question several times and I’m always in favor of over-sharing so…

VidCon has never paid a single person to attend our conference. We fly some people out and pay for hotel…

A good read and important information!

Hey Guys! I hope everyone is doing well! We are figuring out our initial goals for next VidCon. We are hoping to have the following by next year:

  1. Charging stations (easy)
  2. Free Wi-Fi upload area (medium difficulty, will require a bit of cash, not impossible)
  3. BETTER communication network…

We’re also happy to help you guys out in any way we can! <3 The Lonewolves
