Save Twilight? Why not?Ways to save Twilight or Why I should never write books!"Save Twilight? Why not?5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It is hard to deny that the civilized world is split in three groups right now. People who love Twilight, people who hate it and people who had the luck of avoiding it. I have never seen a phenomenon that makes people turn to extremes more, than Stephenie Meyer´s emo porn.
But as a man of art, I think that with just a few tweaks, this series could have been awesome! Not "good", but awesome!
To Quote the Spoony one: In the same kind that a movie with Bruce Campell is never "good" or an artistic achievement, but AWESOME!
Here are my ideas:
"Edward isn´t real!" (Psycho-drama)
Bella Swan has always been a little different from the other kids. Her behavior, fueled by her mother's co-dependency and the lack of a father figure did bad things to her psyche. Leaving her mother and moving in with her father was the last straw. Scared of a strong and self-dependant being, her brain created "Edward". The perfect man for her. She inser

I know upon receiving this letter your first reaction will be to disregard it as some kind of joke. I assure you, however, the return address you see scrawled on the back of this envelope is very real, and so am I for quite some time, actually, despite what your history books may say.
But I digress; my existence is hardly the matter I wish to discuss with you. Does the name "Twilight" ring a bell? I should hope so. For that is the topic of the following letter.
I must admit, when I first heard about this series, I felt only a mild twinge of irritation: Just another vampire romance novel, I thought-full of inaccuracies and dark, brooding anti-heroes. While I could go on and on with my quibbles about any sort of romance with a vampire, your "Twilight" particularly caught my attention.
I'll be frank with you, Mrs. Meyer: it was the most inaccurate interpretation of vampi

- An innocent, seventeen-year-old Mary Sue girl named Bella shows up in a perpetually rainy town (in America, not England.)
-She discovers that the inhabitants of this town are so desperate for a distraction from the repetitiveness of their boring little lives that they all immediately become obsessed with her and her magically pale skin.
- (She pretends this annoys her, but we know differently, eh?)
-Bella, our completely selfless and humble heroine, thinks herself superior to everyone in this damn town, describing them as boring, dim and clueless about the OUTSIDE WORLD.
- (It’s a scary place, apparently.)
-Bella then proceeds to fall deeply and inexplicably in love with some guy called Edward, despite everyone telling her to get over herself (and, I don’t know, possibly him) and the frequent death glares from his general direction.
-Bella then comes to the obvious conclusion that he’s a vampire.
- (This wonderful vampire admits to s

-So, our lovely Bella picks up the story by realizing the true horror of her situation: SHE’S GONNA GET OLDER. -shockhorror-
-Edward ignores her wishes for a crappy boring birthday and takes her to his crappy boring family get-together instead. So uncharacteristic of him to disregard what she wants.
-Bella get hurls into a piano and through a glass table and gets a cut that a few vamps react a little badly to, and then Super Vamp Doc heals it and everything’s fine.
-Oops, wait, half of the Cult_ Cullens ran off.
-Bella remains happily oblivious to her group of only friends disappearing.
- (She’s successfully shunned her actual human friends who like her for more than her… blood.)
-Edward destroys Bella’s magical world and ditches her in a dark forest in the middle of the night.
-But hey, his eyes look like melted gold. It’s all good.
-A few towns throw parties over the Cult_ Cullens leaving.
-Since the book is from Bella

The summer of 2008 marked the start of the Big Twilight Boom; a year of Twilight hysteria which made rabid fan girls out of young teenage girls with low self-esteem, soccer moms, and the occasional male that is actually in touch with their sensitive side. While the series has certainly gained a gargantuan fan base, it has also left a number of sensible and literary people wondering "why?" As Ninochka Grayson says, "On the surface, these books might appear to be predictable versions of a princess fairy tale, however; digging into their dark underworld, where vampires and shape shifters reside, there are universal human elements that make Twilight immortally good literature" (Is Twilight ). Now, Twilight has certainly succeeded in which its previous multi-million predecessor Harry Potter has, in getting the next generation of teenagers to read and keep reading. Other than that, that's
