heartstrings with this Fan video.
But now that I've stopped writing on the blog and I'm doing alot more watching 'out there' - more things are coming together in my mind regarding Twilight obsessions and this scandal. (Yeah, I HOPE this is the LAST post I will ever do in here.)
And IF fans didn't end up LOVING the way the story was originally written; they often turned out to be the most passionate Anti-Twilight Fans, in general. Have any of you seen those mean 'other Kristen Stewart' YouTube videos that make fun of her? I managed to connect with some people involved with creating those for a few exchanges. Our conversation did not start out about being about Kristen Stewart - YIKES, is all I'm gonna say. I swear, anti-fans like THAT are the reason Stephenie Meyer should NEVER publisher her address. (I'm sure she doesn't. ;)
Twilight book readers were PASSIONATE about The Twilight Saga - that's WHY these movies were made. (Who made them a HIT for you, Twihards?!!)
Btw... Neither 'krisbians' nor 'robsessed' (book or movie) fans are specifically Twilight or Anti-Twilight. They can be into their obsessions without being into the story - easily. My guess is that both groups are probably split in half regarding Twilight. There is no way to know really.
I would put up another poll in here if I thought for a moment that you would respond on it. :)
So movie fans are often the ones who are the most hung up on these two professional actors, and also SEEM to be less judgmental about them - maybe because they don't have as much of an 'embedded direct connection' as previous book fans.
Book fans who were in on Twilight from book one had to do ALOT of waiting - so they did alot of extra reading, which only drilled them DEEPER into their obsessions with every turn of the page.
This is also how so many (often younger) movie fans also became overly-obsessed - the waiting between movies, and then the waiting for them to come out on DVD. They read the books with the shallow writing in between times - except THEY filled in the empty places with their idealized version of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Movie fans didn't need to insert 'as much of themselves' into the books when they read them - they had Kristen & Robert to do that - although things still became more personal than they should have for them.
THIS is WHY so many Twilight Fans are MORE HUNG UP on Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson than their beloved characters of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in their favorite fairytale.
For this reason, many movie fan obsessions are not necessarily that much more shallow than original book readers.
These 'movie' fans are also probably the most heartbroken 'robsten' fans who have been taking the BRUNT of all these cruel PR assaults. ADDITIONALLY, if you were an original book fan who was ABLE to transfer your obsession over to Kristen Stewart and/or Robert Pattinson - DOUBLE WHAMMY.
THOSE original book AND movie fans were probably HURTING the MOST when this scandal came down - and MANY of them still are. (Emma/Nutty Madame would be a good example of an original book fan and movie fan. Remember her 'crying youtube' video that everyone made fun of as the scandal was coming down?)
HELP not TRAMPIRE should have been the world's response. SOMEONE should have NIPPED this damn 'cheating' scandal in the bud ASAP.
As far as the obsessions of these kind of fans are concerned (everyone is in varying stages & depths), Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ARE Bella Swan and Edward Cullen - especially if they read the books AFTER watching the movies and/or were original book fans.
Of COURSE they 'know in their heads' (usually) that they aren't ACTUALLY Bella & Edward... But that's how they FEEL. And their FEELINGS are REAL even if the obsession is not.
As far as current MEAN ROBSESSED Anti-Twilight fans go, this is where I think they came from: 1) some of them were original book fans who were disappointed in the book, but couldn’t help continue with the series for awhile – long enough to check out the guy who was going to be bringing BEDward to life; or 2) they were introduced to the original Twilight movie, became enamored, discovered too late how BAD this story was (like me) – and rejected The Twilight Saga before the movies were complete AFTER they realized their OBSESSION and became REPULSED by it - along with everyone else's.)
Twilight fans, PLEASE don't take offense when I say that it HURTS OUR HEADS & HEARTS BOTH. To say that the storyline of The Twilight Saga is insulting and offensive to us is a simple fact of life that I can't ever see changing.
Sorry, I can't relate to their anger. *I* have never been obsessed over ANY of the actors in this series - even if I can't say the same thing about the CHARACTERS. That's just the way I've always been. Finding out who the 'real' people are behind the characters often RUINS characters for me, ha!
But, LUCKY ME... Twilight was ruined for me several months before these scandals started. I can't blame the papz or tabloids for that part - but ALOT of you out there CAN blame them for INTENTIONALLY-ruining Twilight for you for MONEY.
You should have gotten a Hollywood TwiRide like Harry Potter or Star Wars. This is NOT how the beloved fairytales of emotionally invested YOUNG (and young-at-heart) fans are supposed to end.
