Five Fearless Divergent Memes

There are so many directions to go with divergent, but even ignoring the fact that her brother goes on to play her boyfriend, there’s so much. What faction are you? Honestly, I want some “My Life as a Background Slytherin” style content about what it would be like to just be kind of… chilling in Dauntless while Tris does all this dramatic stuff?

Asking the Real Questions

Listen. Listen. I know there’s probably a reason you invited me to your apartment. But you have to understand. I have two interests in this life. I want your wifi, and I want to know if you have a pet. A cat that wants to walk back and forth between my feet? A dog who wants to rest its head on my knees? Even a bird or a fish or something, I guess. But as long as you have wifi, I do really have all I need. Tell your dogs I love them.

 

They’re so Tough

Literally, how do these people function? What on earth is Candor society? You’d know everything about everyone! How do you bounce back from that? It’s worse than living in a small town! I wouldn’t even mind about telling the truth, I don’t think, but knowing things? What a nightmare. I’d rather be in Amity, where they very clearly know nothing. Except how to farm. They truly are the Huffleepuffs of the Divergent series.

Look, not to be that guy, but it’s definitely not a metaphor. It’s not even actually ironic. It’s maybe just a little bit on the nose, honestly. Plus, I’ve got serious questions about Four’s name. When Tris arrives in Dauntless, they tell her she’s gotta use a name FOREVER. She’s never been in the fear simulation. So how did he know he’d have four fears under the same circumstances? He didn’t know yet! How was he named before he had a reason to be named that?

 

No One Likes You!

It really, really should have been. No one even likes that guy! He’s literally the worst. I might be forgetting someone, but I’m going to go ahead and call him the worst brother in literature. And honestly, all these people know Tris. How do they not see her choices coming and prevent them? It’s like the high stakes version of me and my best friend trying to spy vs spy pay for lunch. Of course she was going to try to sacrifice herself. It’s what she does!

 

No Talent, One Talent

It’s only a flesh wound, I’ll bite your ankles off! It’s true, though. And I get that they’re sort of like cops or whatever, but what does a society that’s not at war need a fifth of their people in the military for? Look, I know the experiment was designed this way, I know, but the internal logic? Spotty at best. How much violence can there possibly be to stop? Who’s the head of the government again? Barty Crouch Junior? Constant vigilance!

5 Timeless Dorian Gray Memes

The Picture of Dorian Gray is a horrifying and hilarious masterpiece, and as with it’s author, every single thing about it is iconic. Sure, it might have been heavily redacted and then also banned, but there’s still a lot to unpack, and how better to explore gothic literature than through memes? You already know.

 

No Biggie

This is when I admit that I never watched iCarly as a kid. Goodness only knows why, but I can see now that I really missed out. Still, the hilarity of trying to play off an ostrich needs no context, and recast as Dorian and his posse it’s a whole other level. Nothing’s up! Just being super normal over here, not selling my soul even a little. Anyone want a smoothie?

 

Show Your True Self

I feel like this is a pretty modern take, actually. We’re the generation that can see a lizard just doing its thing and be like… “same, bro”. If someone had a horrifying portrait of themselves in their living room we’d think it was ironic or avant garde, or at least a big mood. What an eccentric he is! Plus, he might’ve shown a little more self control if he was looking at the consequences, even if he wasn’t wearing them.

 

Guess How He Looks Now

I love how this trope started as clickbait and turned into a meme. Who cares about how child actors look now? Not me, and clearly not a lot of people, because it’s been eons since I saw a version of this that wasn’t a joke. Of course, this is a little funnier than the average fare, though. It actually manages to make me feel old, because I’m laughing at a Dorian Gray meme. No judgement. I’m just saying.

 

No Good Deed

You think you know someone. You paint them, you have all this sexual tension, you grant them eternal life, and what do you get as thanks? Nothing good, I’ll tell you that. It’s just like the saying. I don’t really have an excuse for using a meme this out of vogue, except to say that I still think it’s funny. We may all be used to airpods now, but I still accidentally talk to people wearing them. Not usually to warn them of their impending murder, though.

 

Art is so Powerful

Basil really does get the treatment usually reserved for women burned as witches. Sure, he can do something supernatural, maybe, but on it’s face, it’s only helping Dorian. Like, no one made him act like a careless lech or drink all that. If I had a portrait that granted me eternal life, I don’t know what I’d do, but not what Dorian did for sure. Basil was just trying to be, you know, a bro.
