Twilight: A Reality Check
This is in response to the ridiculously overwhelming fray that has erupted from the controversial Twilight, as we all know, authored by Stephenie Meyer; and, also in part from relievingit frommy own chest. Because of the astronomical breath of volumes and volumes of Twilight-centered pieces, I will attempt to keep this brief; but considering how wordy I am as person that might be a tad difficult. (lol)
The arguments for and against Twilight heavily concern Meyer’s take on a vampire. Taking a step outside from the heat of the ongoing inferno, observing it objectively, one cannot help but wonder that essentially this entire fray is entirely based on the uncertain foundation of fantasy. Has anyone truly seen what a vampire actually looks like? (lol). With that question asked, who is to say what a vampire is, or isn’t? In that regard, actually arguing over this—the vampire aspect—is irrelative, because it is over the “stuff of imagination,” all-encompassing, but uniquely special to each individual. This is where the reality check comes in. Vampires do not exist, (or if they do, then they have done an excellent job of remaining oblivious to the Eye of Sauron (aka the Media. lol)) For the record, I can’t exactly recall the last time I came across a vampire, whether sparkly or traditionally home to a coffin’s confines during daylight. (Although, Imust say personally the sparkle doesn't make much sense to me, but I'm not going to rant about something many others already have. You have heard itenough, I'm most sure.)
But that doesn’t mean one can’t express or defend oneself with writing—that’s a historical obvious, or possibly even more aptly, Booksie obvious; but, offensive language employed by either side—the Twilighter’s or the Anti-Twilighters—is just uncalled for, and outright uncouth. If you absolutely love Twilight; then great! Enjoy reading it! If you absolutely loathe Twilight, then it’s quite simple: just ignore, and avoid any affiliation with franchise whatsoever. That would be the more sophisticated avenue to take. But if you must write about whether you love or despise the series, then please do it as humanely, and with a mature format, as possible. I’m sure everyone, both Twilighters and Anti-Twilighters, would appreciate that. Because simply, no one enjoys someone else shoving their opinions down their throats, no matter who they are.
Bottom line: Being obsessively passionate with any argument, whether it is for or against Twilight—or for or against Abortion—without fail comes off as sophomoric no matter how maturely the argument is presented.
As for me, I’m going to stick with finishing City of Ashes, which series has been sadly eclipsed by the Twilight Saga. (Sorry I couldn’t resist. Lol.)
THE END. (And hopefully, I’ve introduced a little reality in this chaotic controversy that has simply just got out of hand.)
