Divergent Book Discussion (31)Monday, May 13, 2013
I find it funny that both Tobias and Tris have an Abnegation tattoo, but I think it is appropriate for both of them since they both came from that faction and are both Divergent (so they haven’t completely abandoned their original beginnings). I also like how Tobias has all of the markings and that bravery, intelligence, peace, selflessness, and honesty should be used by everyone instead of people just being sorted into one of those factions. I totally agree with him 100%, mi amigo. But, I also see the Devil’s Advocate side where Tobias was saying it is a struggle to maintain all of those traits, and with Tris when she said once you get rid of one bad quality about yourself, that another replaces that one. It’s kind of the circle of life, but personality, temperament, and morality driven circle. Everyone can spend their whole life striving towards the goal of attaining and keeping all of the good qualities while rejecting the bad traits, but few actually can maintain this balance. Everyone succumbs to the dark side in one way (or more). By the way, if you are thinking about joining the dark side, I already baked some chocolate chip cookies for ya J
To take a break from Divergent, watch this funny Star Wars video. The Dark Side always seems better, doesn't it?
If you were to get a tattoo or if you already have one, what meaning does it hold for you? Is it like Tobias and Tris’s which remind them of their original home, or something different?
Also, would you join the dark side for cookies? Because if you don’t, all of my cookies are going to go bad L
