We start today's entry from Origami with Twilight and why it sucks.
LIST FORMAT OMIGAWD. :'D
1. Purple prose, anybody? Throwing six adjectives into one sentence doesn't make the
author look smart. It makes the author look like they're TRYING to look smart. Cool
it down, kay thanks.
2. Deus Ex Machina = fail. The good guys win every battle. That doesn't make
for dramatic build up. It's stupid. Stories are more dramatic when the good guys
don't in all of their battles and learn lessons from the battles they have lost.
Meyerpires do not understand the meaning of 'drama' though unless it's "OMIGAWD
HURHUR YOU SMELL LIKE STRAWBERRIES I ARE VAMPIRE I GLITTER I SHALL LOVE YOU LONG
3. The sparkling. I know Stephanie Meyer made vampires her own thing, but godammit,
was the SPARKLING required? That just ruins vampires. Really. Vampires don't freaking
sparkle. They BURN in sunlight, or at least weaken considerably. But sparkling? God.
What are they? Rainbow Brites?
4. Mary Sue/Marky Sue. Characters are made more interesting when they have faults.
But when they're perfection-incarnate like Edward and Bella, there isn't any fun in
reading about them. If you take the litmus Mary Sue test for Bella and Edward and
fill in everything that applies to them, they get wayyyy over fifty, which is the
'kill it with fire' rank.
5. Tons of other bullcrap that I will probably bash upon as the rabid fangirls bring
8'D Oh. And uh, if you want something GOOD involving vampires, read Dracula, the
Interivew with a Vampire series, or watch True Blood or Hellsing. Or read the Sookie
And I don't care if you think I'm being rude. I'm allowed to state my own opinions in
whatever manner I choose to do so.
If you were to read the Encyclopedia Dramatica article on Twilight, maybe then you
would realize how stupid it is. : 0
And yes. I have read the books. So everything I'm saying is justified. :'D Meaning
you can't go "LOLOLO YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK."
Oh. And Edward isn't real KTHNXBAI. :'D
There's like, over 9000 entries on here talking about how kids wanna commit suicide,
and it just makes me shake my head.
1. Somebody always has it worse. Always. I don't mean to underestimate the "OH SO
POWERFUL ANGUISH" flooding through your oh-so dark souls or whatever the hell you all
think, but really. Somebody always has it worse. Freakin' Anne Frank was locked up in
an ATTIC for HOW LONG hiding from people who wanted to kill her simply because she
was a different religion. Did she kill herself? Nopeee. She was stronger than that.
Or Sylvia Likens. That girl was tortured for days on end in brutal, vile ways and she
sat there and was strong enough to deal with it all.
2. It's such a cry for attention. I mean, honestly. I doubt anybody saying they're
going to go An Hero actually means it, they're just doing it so people flock to them
and give them attention, just like the majority of people on here who cut themselves
and announce it to the world. If you were truly oh so hurt about all of the bullcrap
you're going through, you would keep it to yourself or tell a close friend, not
announce it on journals and crap. Honestly. I guess your parents don't give you
enough attention, and that is why you all post entries saying you're going to kill
yourselves. Well just stop and get over it. : / It's obvious, what you're doing. And
it isn't going to be fun for you when somebody tracks your IP and calls the cops in
your area to tell them you're about to kill yourself.
What's there to say?
I like anime and manga. I do. And I talk about it once in a while.
But I don't suddenly say I'm the NUMBAH ONE FAN or that I'm married to SASUGAY or
something. I can talk a little Japanese, but I only talk it when I'm learning it in
class or something, or practicing. I don't start going "KAWAII DESU NE" to random
people or adding 'chan' or 'kun' at the end of everything, because it's STUPID. It's
APPARENT that you learned those words from an anime or something, and those are the
ONLY WORDS you can say.
DO NOT ABUSE THE LANGUAGE UNLESS YOU CAN FLUENTLY SPEAK IT.
IT MAKES YOU LOOK STUPID.
It's people who parade around throwing anime in people's faces and such that make the
rest of the people who watch anime look like idiots. : /
