I first found out about the Twilight novels about four years ago. I was at an event with a raffle, and I’d acquired several raffle tickets, and was looking through the raffle items. I came across copies of Twilight and Eclipse that were being raffled off. I’d never head of the Twilight Series before, as this was before they’d become really popular, and I loved reading, so I put my tickets into the raffle for Twilight.
I wasn’t really surprised when I won, since I’d put three tickets in, and only a few other people had entered.
I got 首页 and began 阅读 Twilight, and then when I was done, my mom read it too. My first impression was good. I liked it. I’d honestly enjoyed the book, and my mom had as well.
I later acquired New Moon and “borrowed” a copy of Eclipse, and read them all through Breaking Dawn. Yes, I liked them. No, I wasn’t ever at the Die-Hard-Twi-Hard-Twilight-Merchandise-buying-Team-Edward/Jacob-shirt-wearing obsessed fangirl level, but yes, 你 could call me a fan. I saw the first two 电影院 with my mom. We both liked them. My main complaint about the first film was that there was too much makeup on the vampires, they looked too unnatural, when in the 图书 it 说 they looked pretty much human.
I don’t know if anyone remembers when I first came to this spot. When I first showed up, I was surrounded 由 an almost all-around negative reaction towards Twilight and anything Twilight related.
Back then, before I got self assured, back when I still cared what other people thought of me was when I went through my “I Hate Twilight” phase.
I was basically just overwhelmed and sucked into the hate that was going on on this spot.
Left and right, people were being close minded, insulting Twilight, and ripping on everything about it. So I joined in.
Also, upon coming here, I was forced to analyze Twilight 更多 as a book. I saw people critiquing different aspects of it, and so for a while, all I saw were the negative aspects of it, not the book I’d originally liked.
But I’ll admit right now that I never have and probably never will hate Twilight.
As the months passed, things changed. Through various events and people, I feel like I actually grew as a person. I stopped 表演 like I hated Twilight. I embraced open-minded-ness. I fought for both sides. I tried to resist the urge to look down on people who purposely always stuck with their Fandom on any issue, even if there were facts that showed they were in the wrong.
So anyways, even after all of the negativity on this spot, (but I will say it has definitely died down since I showed up) I managed to eventually find the me that had been temporarily consumed 由 the anti-Twilight propaganda.
So my honest opinion of Twilight, at the moment, is yes, I still like it. The books, in my opinion, are pretty good, fun reads. Sure, if 你 really look at it, and dive into things, yes, there are some things kind of wrong. Like if 你 look closely, Edward is a stalker, and Bella and Edward have a dysfunctional relationship, but when I was 阅读 the books, I didn’t care. I wasn’t trying to critically analyze anything; I just read them for fun.
I thought, and still think, that the 图书 are fun reads. It's kind of hard to explain why I liked them, but I do, and I shouldn't have to justify it anyways, and it sucks that there’s still hate coming at it from every direction. Enough to make me feel, for a time, embarrassed that I liked them, and felt the need to hide it.
Anyways, that’s the truth. I like Twilight. And never again am I going to let people make me feel bad for thinking 或者 being a certain way. 爱情 me, hate me, just please don’t think that I’m trying to point any sort of blame on anyone, because I’m not.
Also, I don’t have time to go change every anti-Twilight post I’ve ever made on here, but I apologize to anyone I may have offended at any point on here.
