I like the series all right, I guess. It's just that when Bella starts describing Edward my eyes start to cross and I sigh dramatically and skip it. Also, sometimes the books just seem way too long. Doesn't it seem like sometimes the scenes are unnecessarily stretched out with lots of flowery words and making you need to whip out the thesaurus and/or dictionary?

And...hello! *waves* Obviously I'm a new person. I don't have anywhere else safe to tell people what I don't like about Twilight because my friends are Twitards to the max.

04:37 am - Stephen King reaches back like a pimp and slaps a ho!
http://omg.yahoo.com/news/stephen-king-on-twilight-author-stephenie-meyer-can-t-write-worth-a-darn/18406?nc

According to Stephen, "Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."

While Stephen may not be a fan of Stephenie's writing, he understands the appeal of the series.

"People are attracted by the stories, by the pace and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it's very clear that she's writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual."

He further explains, "A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that's a shorthand for all the feelings that they're not ready to deal with yet."




So: just about the greatest author in the world, until JK Rowling showed up (though that's debatable) has declared Meyer's work a piece of shit pretty much. Yay! Something moar to throw in fanbrat's faces!

Eeerrr... It's not that I HATE the series, but isn't it one cliche after another?

And the newest book, 'eclipse,' was just... depressing. My view of it, however. Feel free to make of it as you like. <3

And er... Hi guys! :D

09:13 pm - Twilight party. Sorry, Twilight /discussion/


First off to our new members, welcome to the community! Please enjoy =)

Today at the Pequannock library in New Jersey, there was a Twilight discussion. Not a party, even though there was food and screaming. Whatever.
My sister, friend, cousin and Aunt like the series, so we went. Me, my mom and my other friend are the only ones who hadn't read it out of everyone.

Let's see, some of the people were pretty obnoxious, like they had to know everything there is to know about the stupid series. "Oh, well Edward is this and Jacob is that, and Bella just has to whatever". >3> Seriously. She was acting like it was irl gossip. Actually, there were 2 like that, who had to correct EVERY. SINGLE. THING. ANYONE. SAID. Me and the friend who hadn't read it were really annoyed by it and decided to OM NOM NOM the snacks in revenge. Like they had to be right.

Before it started, by the snack table, they were talking about how positively awful it was about Midnight Sun. Get over it. I'll be happy if another spawn doesn't get out. It's her own damn fault for giving manuscripts to her "friends". They think that the person who leaked it is the worst person in the world, no joke. I wonder what they think about people who actually do TERRIBLE things, such as mudering and such.
They also had a "make-your-own-t-shirt" contest, and the girl with the Edward shirt won just because it was Edward. I thought the girl with the Jacob shirt was actually really awesome, and I felt bad for her. She had cool pawprints and stuff on it =/

But seriously, everyone's all "OHEMGEE, TEAM EDWARDDDD~~~" or "LYKE TEAM JACOB GAIZ~" But seriously, if I was writing the book, I'd have Bella end up with the James guy or something. Because that would be a REAL twist.
The woman leading the discussion was actually real upset with Breaking Dawn because it was corny, cliche (as if the rest of the books aren't), and COMPLETELY went against the traditional vampire. As if Meyers can make up her own vampire stuff without considering everything else.

There was also apparently an article written about how much Twilight sucks in a newspaper by me. I'm having a friend bring it in tomorrow, so I'll get it up here ASAP <3

Don't know if anyone was watching those music award things, but the Twilight cast was on it. My friend made my sister watch. They were pretty~ lame. I hope they lose. If they can.

08:21 pm - Hate
Y'know who I feel sorry for after reading Twilight? Mormons. Because they must be raised srsly f**ked up if one of them could write this shit. I mean, it's awful. God forbid any young girl could actually empathize with Bella (I shudder at the thought)

So one more thing Stephanie Meyer can be accused of: lowering my formerly very accepting attitude toward Mormons. God, wtf is wrong with Bella?

Bella is the worst character ever. Sorry. I've read the books. I've seen it.

Bella has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. She is a whiny, apathetic loser. Her whole life is defined by her love for Edward. What a great heroine for female readers to look up to! Of course it's okay to have no life or goals outside of the guy you like! And for male readers, is it really good for their respect for women to read from this shclocky characters point of view? Hey, a woman that does nothing but worship you! Don't guys get bombarded with enough of that crap?

And as for the writing! Trite. Boring. REPETITIVE. Sometimes I'll look at a sentence and think, hm, didn't I see that before? She uses the same descriptions for characters and facial expressions over and over again. There are numerous grammar and syntax errors, as well as spelling errors!

I'm going to quote what someone else said, which made me laugh. In regards to the plot:

"I love you!" "I love you, but I'm going to hurt you!" "No you won't! I want to be a vampire!" "No! I don't want you to be a monster!" Blah blah blah blah blah." Hundreds of pages of nothing but this crap. Some of it so bad, I actually grimaced

I can't believe this ever got published. But then, knowing most Americans, I'm really not surprised.

Even more disgusting, I saw a boy today with Breaking Dawn or whatever the new retardedness is. D:

10:52 pm - Today's Writer's Block
So if you look at a lot of peoples' answers, you see "Edward Cullen", "Edward from Twilight!" or "A vampire from Twilight!"

Ughh @__@ 

You do realize if you were stuck on an island with one of those guys, they'd run out of blood eventually (sooner rather than later!), and suck yours, and you'd die? You'd become a "newborn" ftw, and couldn't get any blood, either. So seriously. Vampires + deserted island = what the hell are you thinking!?

C'mon guys, post! @___@ And advertise lol.

Anything you'd like me to add to the profile? =0

Hey, welcome everyone!

This was partially created out of an idea me and my friend had, since neither of us has read the Twilight series.

My sister and friend have, though, and...well, it seems like such a corny plot =/ I've decided not to read it; still, I know pretty much all that's happened, so when I say, "I don't like it", I can say that, because between my sister and friend, I know pretty much every freaking detail.

Seriously. Let's go to Canada. Out of nowhere.
And ride motorcycles and jump off of cliffs. SO WE CAN HEAR VOICES IN OUR HEADS >w>
Yeah. Good plan.

So here's an icon I made for the comm; feel free to use =] Make your own, and share! Make lots of stuff, and share! Post often, even if it's something little; let the community grow, and have fun!!



...I'll make better ones, for serious DX Lol.

Also, please tag your posts. Kthx.
