I come forth from the writing pits to bestow knowledge. Knowledge obtained through rigorous analysis and contemplation.
Are you ready?
Twilight’s biggest problem is that it doesn’t know how to laugh at itself.
There you go.
Simple, isn’t it?
I was watching Vampire Diaries, and Stefan and Elena were having a passionate, angsty-emotastic moment, and something about being together for eternity, and then Damon cut in with a quip and an eyeroll, and totally DE-EMOed the moment! It was miraculous.
And I sat forward and said, “That’s it! THAT is what Twilight can’t do.”
That’s the problem. Twilight can’t seem to relieve any of the angst and the emo. Twilight needs a Damon to mock Edward and Bella’s solemn vows and stare-offs.
So there you go.
