A Non-Twilight Fan Wants To Find Out What The Big Deal Is


A non-Twilight fan is wanting to know what draws fans & makes them obssess over the saga we love. She will be blogging about it on Movifone. She has started listing the "10 Things I Think I Know About Twilight." SHE HAS NOT READ ANY OF THE BOOKS OR SEEN THE MOVIES. HER LIST ARE THINGS SHE'S JUST HEARD FROM OTHERS. And she will blog after watching the movies. (Not clear from reading her blog if she plans on reading the books.)

Here's what she says "The thing is, 'Twilight' is maddeningly intriguing. The fan base is so devoted and rabid that it makes me wonder why. My mother is a smart, college-educated lawyer -- not some gullible, love-starved housewife or tween I'd assumed this series was written for. If she likes 'Twilight,' the series must have merit, right?

Hence, this project was born. I, Gaby Dunn, once a complete 'Twilight' virgin, am going to watch the three films in the franchise so far -- 'Twilight,' 'New Moon' and 'Eclipse' -- in honor of the 'Eclipse' DVD release on December 4.

In this first piece, I'm going to tell you what I think I already know about 'Twilight.' Anything I know about the franchise I've only picked up from the cultural zeitgeist or the tabloids' obsession with the cast. But I've been challenged to put what I think I know about 'Twilight' out into the world and then see if my assumptions are right or wrong."

Here's some of her 10 things.

  • "Edward does a lot of crazy stuff like take the engine out of Bella's car and make her jump off a cliff. I think this is all in the name of love, for some insane reason.
  • There's a character named Jacob. Oh my god, it is like 'Lost'! Only this Jacob is a werewolf or I guess, a shape-shifter if you want to get technical. He also loves Bella but then ends up being a pedophile. I'm not sure what plot point this is mocking, but I've heard people say it and I can't wait to find out.
  • Sex is a weird thing. I think one or more characters were raped in the past. Bella really wants to sleep with Edward but he's afraid of hurting her. Like in every horror film ever, I'm guessing the slutty characters always die. I'm already running out of things I know."

Ok? Edward doesn't not take the ENGINE out. It's some small part. It was for Bella's safety. Also, Edward did not make Bella jump off of the cliff! Bella jumped off on her own to see Edward in her head. Jacob is no pedophile even though I don't really like Jacob. So yeah.

What books was she reading? Not the Twilight Saga, that's for sure. Everything she says so far is totally wrong.

I was looking at a collage in my office today that was dedicated to Roswell. I was very passionate about that show and Max and Liz were it for me. I realized today that those pictures just don't hold the same meaning for me anymore because those characters don't exist anymore. Women of all ages love romance and love. Edward and Bella represent that for us and for me - an "older" fan - it helps me remember what young love is like. So if she doesn't GET it... we can't help her understand.

ummmm......ok? I have a very confused look on my face at the moment.....wht movie and/or book did she watch and/or read. Cuz i know damn well we did watch or read the same books. imma need her to go back, read and/or watch the correct Twilight Saga, and then blog about it. Cuz right now, she is talkin alot of nonsense that is a bunch of bulls**t.
