I'm trying to pry Eliz's fanfic address out of her so we can read it. Maybe you can. It's just so tempting!

badgerbag

omg awesome. I hoped so hard she'd grow up to write fanfic!

My work is done! I have been a corrupting influence with all the tamora pierce books and the gamer cons!

Yatima

I get the impression everyone hates Twilight because it is purest distilled essence of adolescent female desire. And if we as a society ever take adolescent girls seriously, even for a nanosecond, every penis on earth will instantly explode.

That's what I thought, too. I ended up reading all four books within a week or so and although there were some slow parts here and there, I liked the series pretty well.

This post and the comments are the first things I've seen that have made me actually want to read Twilight.

badgerbag

Els, I'm about 90% certain you will find it candy-like and hilarious! I'm reading it now and having to pause from giggling too hard, as they have started dating and the omgzrs drama of being just about to touch hands is making Bella swoon.

clairelight

actually, badge, although the first book set off a few faint feminist alarm bells, it WAS mostly harmless teenaged girl fantasy: a bit regressive, but harmless.

... wait 'til you get to the second book, though, where she gives up her entire life -- all interests of her own, her friends, her joy and personal power -- for a guy who doesn't even want her, and then lets him control her present and future.

no real spoilers there. just can't wait to hear what you think about it.

See though, now you need to read Cleolinda on Twilight and also Growing Up Cullen. Yes, mock is my fandom. :)

badgerbag

clairelight: planning on it! steeling myself! eeeep.

vito: I'll go read those links! I finished the book and towards the end started feeling super perturbed and seeing a bunch of problematic stuff. On the other hand certain scenes stick with me, like Bella looking at her childhood home and its mailbox. It was really eerie and well done. So, part of what bothered me (aside from ALL OF IT) was the way Bella accepted more and more that Edward would not listen to her or respect her. So their relationship begins more and more to be about the both of them hiding information and lying to each other.
