The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Non-Twilight fans ignorance!!

It really irritates me when non-Twilight fans say how horrible and bad Twilight is, and they havn't even read the books!! Judging Twilight just because it's a popular book that was adapted into a film, isn't enough justification to hate it. However, when reporters and journalist don't have a clue what they are talking about, when they interview the cast, it's mildly offensive and rude to the stars. And not only that, it's disappointing because the saga the so great. They are reporting and pretending to know what they are talking about. It's very disrespectful to the fans, and most of all, Stephenie Meyer.

I was on some Twilight fans sites and was looking at some magazine scans about Twilight. Just to get an idea of what they were saying about Kristen, Robert, Taylor and the cast. I saw shocked to see that lots of articles were printing false information. Yeah, sometimes that happens with "who's-dating-who" articles. But the mistakes weren't even that!! They were simple things, Like names even. Before interview a star, you would think that they would do their research. At least go onto wikipedia, or something to get some information. Even if its just the plot.

Tons and tons of Twilight fans would kill to be able to talk one-on-one with Robert, Kristen, Taylor, Kellan, Peter or any of the cast. These reporters interview them, and some don't even know about Twilight. They can't even get the actors names right, when they probably had them printed right in front of them. I would be offended if i turned up to a interview and someone called me by the wrong name. It's rude. They probably don't mean to do it, but it's still unprofessional.

These are some of the embarrassing publications : Things like wrong names, Bella Snow is printed twice, profiles which say that Chaske Spenser is playing a character named Lakota, and fan photoshopped pictures are being displayed as pictures that Summit has released. It's not only gossip magazine that were doing it. When Robert and Taylor were on the Tyra Bank's show Robert name was printed as "Edward Pattinson". Umm, what? Myspace did it too, to Taylor. His name was printed as "Tyler Lautner". Seriously, they can't even get their names right.

If any non-twilight fans actually gave it a chance, they will enjoy it. I've never meet anyone who has read it and didn't like it. They are just living of their prejudices that because everyone likes it, they don't want to follow the crowd. Also, Harry Potter fans are always saying it's crap, because its has been compared to Harry Potter. They won't read it because they feel threatened because people just used to like Harry Potter, and now they are liking Twilight, too. So they may feel like its taking over Harry Potter's fandom. And that is stupid and juvenile. Anyway, reporters should actually do their research, and not remain ignorant. Then they might actually like the books and appreciate being able to interview these talented actors and actresses, and not make idiots of themselves, because Twilight fans can tell when a reporter or journalist isn't a fan.
