    Ever wonder what new supernatural romance "saga" (it's more of a soap opera, really) will come riding in on Twilight's coat tails? Penny Arcade hazarded a guess once:

    They were close, but not quite there.

    Hahaha.

    I told them they should have killed Stephanie Meyer before she could ruin about a decade of books.

    Then again it's nothing Harry Potter didn't already start, eh. (Although at least they didn't go making up mythological species and giving them the names of already defined ones like Vampires ; If you think that 'thing' from Twilight is a vampire, you are sorely mistaken).

    Vampires dont actually exist, therefore you can't define them yourself, only your mear opinion based on what YOU know.

    And get over it, Obviously something is good about these books, people are buying them, and if there is sales, why not keep writing them?
    I rather like this how new idea of a vampire and im glad its opening up different varients, instead of everyone having the same god damn opinion, people just refuse to accept other peoples ideas >_>

    Hopefully when you say people you mean girls instead. I do not know of a single (straight) guy who likes Twilight and doesn't just say it to try to get laid.

    That alone should be enough to clue you in on why people hate the series.

    Heres your first guy then?
    I'm Straight, I have a girlfriend, and i dont say it to get laid?
    and i brought them to read them, and i enjoyed them, and i believe i got my moneys worth
    So i cant see WHY people cant enjoy the series, i did.
    I THINK its the fact that someone FINALLY gave a different opinion on a vampire, and since people in todays society get beaten down for there ideas, that it lead to it being completely hated.

    And im not just refering to twilight now, I mean the whole genre of like a vampire romance, which ALL the producers are doing now, so its obviously liked?

    No, that isnot the case AT ALL.
    In fact the 'popular' thing tends to be the shittiest.
    1)Macs - Windows do everything they do and better
    2)Norton Antivirus - I could name at least 30 free antivirus that do a better job, and paid ones that succeed so far past Norton it's not funny.
    3)iPods - They have shitty format support, everything in their store was DRM, it was all shit, the iPods themselves were/are flimsy, cost 5x as much as the next brand with the same space on it

    I could give a ton of other examples too. Mainstream is almost always worse than the alternative. Very few times has the mainstream option been the better option.

    Jesus Christ could you make anymore blatant mistakes in one post. This is probably exactly why you like Twilight, it's targeted to estrogen filled teenage girls and 30 year old obese women who want to be loved. The reason you like it is that you haven't realized that you're homosexual yet, or you really want a girl like that Kristen chick. I mean the only other option is that you never had a father who taught you what gay was.

    Vamipres were initially bloated, purple, mindless creatures without fangs that killed cattle and spread disease. Bram Stoker "took the name and used it wrongly". Your point is moot.

    Vampires were originally made up by Romainan farmers to scare children to sleep, Dracula just had a habit of cutting peoples heads off and raping virgin girls. FARMERS GOT PISSED. Long story short. He got his head stuck on a spike and became one of the most famous icons of classic horror.

    Who cares whether his point is moot? The vampires that Stephanie Meyer created are more like blood thirsty ogres. Being made of diamond and all.

    Vampires don't sparkle.

    Fairies do.

    >Search for book at library with term "Vampire"
    >Receive Sparkle

    A lot of people care. That's why there's a huge community of people who hate Twilight (about as big as the teenage girls loving it).

    You poor thing.

    You should have put your foot down and said no, even if you were the feminist type saying no would be a good call because the movie is a bad example for girls and women, it would've helped your girlfriend out.

    Arguments are 2 sided. This is a monologue with interruptions.

    And both are equally ridiculous.
