Most of you kupikans know Twilight, therefore you know Stephanie Meyer, better known
as SMeyer, Bimbo, or TheWorstAuthorGracedWithAWritingAward. Before, I agreed with all
of those nicknames, hell, she wrote like she stuffed a shot gun with a well raped
thesaurus, pulled the trigger, and just picked out the scraps from the debris, and
guled them together into a novel. Well, would you believe me if I said she was a
genius? Don't get me wrong, the Twilight "Saga" is still one of the most horrible
pieces of literature I have ever had to read, but honestly, SMeyer is a genius.
The whole series is just like a heap of manipulation. Think about it, the series is
unbelieveably popular, but the writing is so horribly BAD. So why are millions of
young girls screaming, and obsessed with it? Its simple. SMeyer is using your own
desires to fuel your interest in the book. Think about it, subconciously, you aren't
reading "Bella and Edward had a serious make-out session in their brand new car, in
the garage on a fucking gigantic house." You're reading "InsertYourNameHere and
Edward had a serious make-out session in their brand new car, in the garage on a
fucking gigantic house." People ask SMeyer why she bothered to choose such a Mary-Sue
character. Its because the reader wants a life like hers, being a Mary Sue is just a
by product of her perfect, envy inducing life. A perfect man? Fame? Money? "Love"?
Then later, Looks, and FUCKING Invulnerability. Those who hate the series are those
who already accepted that they most likely AREN'T going to be given a life like that,
nope, sorry, we live in Reality. The HATRZ, as the TWI-HARDS (not all, some have
opened a dictionary in the last decade or so) have already looked past the Mary
Sue-ness of Bella, and the Gary Sue-ness of Edward. They can see all of the plot
holes and character flaws that are hiding behind the "perfection" that is EDWBELLA's
Okay, so what dose this have to do with my original statement of SMeyer is a genius?
Simple. Her writing skills are terrible, her books are un researched, and are riddled
with plot holes. But its unbelievebly popular. She has found a way to basically
enslave the female population, just by ingeniously making Edward so unbelieveably
perfect, and the rest of Bella's life so damned envy-able. If that's not deserving of
genius, then I'm not sure what is.
Don't believe me? Then ask a TwiHard. They aren't drawn to the plot, and they don't
give a shit that Bella has brown hair. They just love Edward. They are obsessed with
him, and all of the other glorious over muscled males in the series. Proof?
I rest my case.
