Eonline: Five Ways the World Would Be Different Without Twilight



EOnline made Really  interesting article about what the world would be like if Twilight never existed !! cant imagine :D

1. Robsten Who? Can you even imagine? But if Bella and Edward never hooked up on the big screen, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson may never have started canoodling off screen. They'd just be two hawt T-town actors looking for their big break—and, worse, K.Stew might still be dating Michael Angarano and Rob could've continued his hook ups with, like...Megan Fox? Or would have Nikki Reed have married Rob instead of Paul McDonald? Yikes!

2. Adios, Vampire Obsession! True, Anne Rice hit it big first with Lestat, but, the whole vamp thang got popularly cemented with the less-well-written Twilight books (which sold millions upon millions of copies). Indeed, the current vampire obsession combusted when dreamy Edward Cullen bit his way into cineplexes. Which opened the fang-banger door for the likes ofTrue Blood and The Vampire Diaries. Repeat: we're not saying the Cullens were the first vamps, but they definitely helped make the supernatural suckers a phenom—and we really don't think it would have happened otherwise, sorry.

3. The Hunger Games Fast: If it weren't for Twilight, Jennifer Lawrence would be just another Oscar-nominated, drop-dead gorgeous gal. And neither Josh Hutcherson nor Liam Hemsworth would be likened to the next R.Pattz (or Taylor Lautner for that matter)! The vamptastic saga was, without question, one of the main reasons Hollywood execs bit into the young adult book market—including The Hunger Games, and immediately launched a copycat, multifilm franchise.

4. Twi-Moms No More: Without Twilight, Twi-Moms would just be, well, horny moms at home and in the office! Think of the delivery boys who have been saved, thanks to the fertile, fantasy-escape worlds the Twi books have afforded older gals everywhere! Not to mention their daughters, equally as love-smitten, drooling away incoherently at home! But, as we said, Edward's handsome mug and Jacob's formerly-underage abs gave these more mature fans a way to channel the frustrations of minivans, boardrooms, soccer practices...sexually. And while there are tons of Twihards, some cuckoo and some not, Twi-Moms will always hold a special place in our hearts. It's all so retro-Stiffler!

5. Mormonism Is In! Democrats must hate Mormon authoress Stephenie Meyer just as much as we can't stand her prose! Because, let's get real, it's a fact that Meyer has helped bring her faith more into American pop culture—even though she rarely speaks about her beliefs. She doesn't have to: Bella and Edward and all their endless, moaning chastity do it for her. And admit it: Meyer created one of the most successful pop phenomenon of all time, which probably may even help a candidate such as Mitt Romney to nab the Oval Office. Not to mention Marie Osmond's hip again. Hello? It all goes back to Twilight!

Not a Mormon - but I am Christian. I agree. Twilight Saga wasn't the first written out of Anne Rice's books, True Blood (better known as The Southern Vampire Mysteries and/or Sookie Stackhouse Novels) or The Vampire Diaries - but it did help them go mainstream, out in the public eye in the forms of television shows. Not Anne Rice, though.


But think about it: if Twilight weren't made into a movie, do you really expect that shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries would exist? No. The books would, of course - but the shows wouldn't. Twilight's success, I think, made people become bold and pitch the ideas for the shows from the books. That's also why I think Twilight is so heavily compared to TB and TVD.


I still don't understand why it's been compared to Harry Potter. There are big time differences with that one. Even, though, the fantasy/supernatural is there with the books that are also YA (Young Adult).
