Also, what's with all the Twilight-related venom on JF lately? Is the fandom suddenly starting to implode? I don't really know anything about the fandom except what I've learned on the macro comm, which would have you believe that Robert Pattinson is a smokin' bitch and Kellan Lutz is a pretty princess. Can't really argue with that.
The macro comm, like most macro comms, does not take itself or its subject very seriously, so I'm still looking at Twilight as Torchwood for vampire romances. It's so clearly over-the-top, plotless, and angsty that you can't take it seriously, you can only lol. SPARKLY VAMPIRES, guys. EDWARD:CHEESE::BELLA:WHINE. And yes, it's addictive like crack, if you like that sort of thing.
*shrug* There is plenty in the source material for a good sporking, but it seems like there is less mocking of the wankiness and the books than there is mocking of the fact that people like the books. Which seems... wrong to me. It's like people are mad that the fandom exists, and I don't get it.
But that's okay. More sparkly vampires for me.
Sigh. Back to work now. ):
