Recently, I read an articolo on here written da a true Twilight fan, where she expressed her anger with the fan-community of this beloved series.
After Leggere - a long with Leggere some other articoli too - I began to think about what it means to be a true Twilight fan, a Twilighter if te will.
In my opinion a true fan of anything appreciates every element of whatever that person is a fan of - in this case Twilight.
A true Twilighter looks at this series and doesn't see just a Amore story between a vampire and a human, but they see the struggle between good and evil. They see a story with dynamic characters who all have been developed to have depth and personality. They see domande of fate and destiny and true love. They find themselves swept away into a world where Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. can be vegetarian, licantropi roam the land, and something evil is always lurking around the corner. They begin to believe that fictional characters are actually real. They Amore every character for who they are and Amore all of their imperfections - yes, I did say imperfections. : ]
Now another type of fan has emerged in the empire of Twilight. That other type of fan is a Fangirl - o boy if te like.
What classifies a Fangirl? Well in my opinion, its one of those people who only care about the main characters, which in this case would be Edward and Bella. They only see the Amore story side o this epic saga. They overlook the amazing elements brought to the story da people like Jacob Black, because they believe he is just bent on Edward and Bella destruction. They don't see that true Amore isn't going to just come with no problems. They only see the perfect side of the characters, and don't believe there could be an imperfection. Then when an imperfection becomes very open, they freak out and begin the horrible thing we know as character bashing.
So when it comes down to it, what kind of fan do te want to be? Do te want to be the type of fan that loves the story for everything that it is and loves all the characters for who they are? o do te want to be the type of fan that only looks at the pretty side of the novel, trying to disregard the actual human elements of the story?
When I think about Stephenie Meyer and how she literally had an amazing dream, wrote it down, and shared it with the world, well she put a lot of work into it. She took time to discover each character, get to know them, and explore every level of their personality. She developed an epic story of love, courage, destiny, fate, fantasy, and the eternal battle between good and evil. When I think about this I can't help but want to be the best fan I can. I want to be a true Twilight fan - a Twilighter.
What about you?
