My thoughts so far on Twilight
I'm trying(notice the word trying
) to read Twilight and see how bad (or not) it is so I can say whatever I want about it to the annoying fangirls at school. A particular aggressive girl in my class stepped on my foot when I said Twilight was a book about mary-sues falling in love with sparkling, vampire gary-stus with only romance (It's the basic assumption that's less biased than what most of the fan population will tell you). I can't see how you could not see Bella and Edward can fit the mary-sue gary-stu stereotype many uncreative teens who roleplay or write fanfiction with OCs.
Anyway- it took me a couple of days to read up to chapter 5- I'm not a slow reader, I just can't get into the book.
And now 'm actually sorry for my readers who read my fanfiction, because I can see her writing how I write, and god
must it be boring yet easy to read- wait, nevermind.
My fanfiction complex than Twilight. The reading level of Twilight is only at 4th grade level, despite it's mature content.
I'm just glad the girls aren't screaming the graphic detail at school. I want to read it myself (if I ever get to it) and compare it to the fanfiction I've read- but if in those scenes Bella marvels at Edward's beauty, it officially is labeled "bad fanfiction" by myself.
Like any normal book instead of manga, I don't really care about any character (Bella and go live under a car for all I care and Edward live in a cave) so I find no reason to join the fandom at all.
Except for the antis. I'll be part fo the anti-fandom.
