OK. It seriously pained be to even write that statement albeit a complete lie. But I have noticed that there are a lot of people out there who genuinely DO hate the phenomenon.
And I’m not talking about the typical “I just don’t get it,” headshake from people who’ve never read the book or “I hate my wives Twilight obsession,” facebook page.
I’m talking straight hatred, as if Stephenie Meyer killed their cat kinda shit! Just yesterday I googled “How far is Forks from Seattle, WA?” and found this answer in a Yahoo thread:
“A LONG, LONG way and sorry to break it to you but it’s just a tiny town with nothing going on in it. There’s no hot vampire guys. If the book/movie was set in the middle of the Mojave Desert would you still want to visit it? And FYI – the writer had NEVER EVEN BEEN to Forks when she wrote the first book. Why would she want to???”
Newsflash, neither does Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. (The tooth fairy however is up for discussion because I SWEAR she left me a dollar when I was 7 when NOBODY else was home.) But every year we still tell our little cousins and nieces and nephews to be good so that Santa will leave them something nice under the tree.
