Why do we sound surprised when I say I am both a John Green as well as an IPKKND fanatic?
This has almost been a stereotype that if you like classic literature, you cannot sit and watch 2 Broke Girls. But didn’t Dr. Gregory House change that? He was a great doctor and loved to watch funny medical dramas. (Oh Reve! That is a reference to a piece of fiction! You need to drop down to real life!)
What is fiction? Something climbing out of another planet? No. It’s a story of one of us, by one of us. And that one of us maybe surrounded by guilt or brimming in fantasy. That one person may be the saddest person of the world or a princess. And literature is nothing if not a vent and a refuge. It always tries to show us the beauty our eyes are shuttered for and which our mind doesn’t acknowledge. That, my dear, is the reason why fondness should not be questioned. It is the one thing made to forget the world and enjoy its beauty. No matter how contradictory that sounds, let it rest.
