I just went on Stephenie Meyer's website for the first time in what must be around a year.
Don't judge me, please. I swear I was only looking for her opinion on Arizona's new immigration law, since that is the kind and tolerant* state that she resides in.
Although I unfortunately did not find any editorial on that subject, I DID discover something far far better: there is a Twilight Graphic Novel! OMGZ!! I wonder if they added glitter to Edward's sparkling visage!!
For the past several months, I've refrained from mocking Twilight. In fact, I've hardly mentioned - or even thought about - it at all. Is this a sign that the series is slowly dying in popularity? Is it becoming less interesting only to those who attend my school in Maryland? These are questions that I fear will remain elusive for quite some time; after all, the Eclipse movie hasn't been released yet.
w00t. I hope y'alls are exxxxxxxxxxcited.
Moreover, I like to think that this represents a character development on my part. It is after all somewhat pointless to spend a great portion of your time slamming a book that you could quite easily ignore - perhaps not its existence itself, but certainly all of the hype around it. Unless you live in Forks, Washington, the best advice I have for Twilight haters is to simply Get Over It.
Seriously. Who gives a fuck. It's a poorly written book that contains irritating characters. It's popular. It doesn't concern you. If you claim that your life has been ruined by Twilight, I probably won't believe you, you sympathy-seeking attention whore.
Ahh, it feels nice to say that. It's a very satisfying feeling to realize that you (by which I mean I) have grown enough to be able to acknowledge crappy insignificant things and take them in stride. Henceforth, I daresay I will find the hardcore Twilight bashers just as aggravating as the series' most dedicated devotees.
* JK. Until it becomes a tad less racist, I hereby declare Arizona to be a jerkface.
