I long for the days of the books of Twilight only...  

Okay, when it comes to those of you reading this post, I have a feeling you will understand where I am coming from.

I am getting just SICK to death of the psycho Twilight fans out there. And I think you all know what I mean about the psycho ones. That would be the ones who just about want to eighty-six anyone who doesn't agree with everything they feel about the series and live and breathe it. I very much long for the days when it was just the books.

Case in point: just because people happen to like a pairing or character you don't like, doesn't mean they're an absolute idiot. Strangely enough, I'm a big Team Swiss person, but lean towards Jacob in the books and Edward in the films. I was wearing my Team Jacob shirt the other day (which I love because I really think the claw mark and the red is fun) and got just ambushed by these late thirty-some year old women. Okay, first off, you're supposed to be an adult. Second, it's FICTION. Third, it's supposed to be fun. And fourth, you have nothing better to do? Chill the fuck out.

I have a real love for nearly all the characters in the series for a number of reasons. I think that's why I jump back and forth on the teams and basically sit in the middle with the Team Swiss folks. This feeling is something that causes me to become annoyed when people purposely rail on specific characters. Example? On a certain site, when the track listing was presented for the soundtrack, the track of Jacob's Theme was actually CROSSED OUT because it had his name in it. That's really extremely immature because it's a track from the soundtrack and an absolutely beautiful one at that. Doesn't anyone realize that if Jacob wasn't in the series, it would be a touch dull because there would be no competition? Even if you're not a fan of him, his presence creates a conflict which makes the story that much more entertaining.

This all just reminds me of being in eighth grade and listening to the crazy fangirls talk about Titanic. That movie would have been so much better in my eyes if I hadn't had to deal with listening to that. My husband loves that movie and has tried to get me to watch it, but I unfortunately cannot think of anything but hearing about it from a bunch of smitten fourteen year olds. It's too bad because it really ruins the film for people and makes people who know nothing about it or the books despise it.

On a happy note, my husband got us on a list to the Eclipse premiere here in MN, so I'll be seeing it at 7PM tomorrow night. That should be fun. We're both very excited. Even my dad (my military dad) said that this one looks good. That made me laugh.

See, thank you! I swear, everytime I see the Edward/Jacob stuff in some sort of media, I'm just like, "Stop! You're fueling this fire even more!"

I think that's terribly annoying because those people are real, versus the characters.

which is why I now steer completely clear of the Twilight fandom, and I made the greatest decision ever when leaving ontd_twatlight and lion_lamb because both of those places seem to be ground zero for psychos. I do like to post at sort of beautiful on occasion because seriously everyone over there is very laid back.

As far as the Team Jacob stuff, Team Edward fans and their creepy obsession/misguided hatred toward Jacob were like 80% of the reason I went from Team Swiss to Team Jacob to begin with.

OH and fyi, I don't hate Team Edward fans. I feel the same about them as I do christians. Be into whatever you want I don't care, just stop trying to force it on me LOL

God, I can't even IMAGINE what ontd_twatlight was like. lion_lamb has made me feel rather ill lately as well, so I'm just staying away from them too.

I love how some of these people behave like this is all based in reality. There are so many people that I just want to scream, "It's fiction, people!" to. It's just unbelievable.

I just read "christmas" and went "wait, WUT?!" *lmao*

This whole thing is getting worse than Bangel/Spuffy, multiplied by infinite numbers I can't even think of. *sigh*

I miss the days when a woman of my age (36) could admit to liking the books and not need to be ashamed. Now, if I say I like the books/movies, then I'm automatically lumped in with those crazy women that accosted you in the mall.

I do enjoy the books. I see the movies
mostly for Rob
. I am Team Edward. But good God, I'm not insane, it's not a personal affront to me if someone likes Jacob better.

I know that feeling. My mom and I both read the books, so when the movies come out, she always comes to town and we go see them together. So it's this fun thing we do together and get all excited about. Well, I tell people this and they think we're just totally nuts.

Thank you for posting this! See, when I am in the off topic posts at Lion_lamb with questions/comments about the Riley/Angela pairing, I get negative/sarcastic comments and the users just jump down my throat.

Is it too much to ask them not to do that or at least for the mods to get them to back off?

I hope you and your husband have a great time! I'm seeing it over the weekend.
Lady Mansonladymanson on June 28th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
That is just crap, I can't believe they treat you like that. Honestly, everything I have dealt with over there has always been a battle. The only reason I keep looking at the comm is because there is a lot of good info over there and there are a lot of nice fans, but the negativity really clouds it.
lindsay aka niki1988niki1988 on June 28th, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC)
And what is worse is when I try to make the posts their the way they want it to be, they reject it anyway.
Lady Mansonladymanson on June 28th, 2010 11:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, don't feel bad. They reject my stuff every time. The last time I finally just said screw it. If people are going to be that anal about things, it's not worth it. Stuff like that is meant to be fun, not stressful.
lindsay aka niki1988niki1988 on June 29th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
I mostly stay connected because of the updates and news they have and the cool fics/arts/vids/off topic post and weekly request post, but that's it.

Wow, people are more insane than I ever gave them credit for. I wonder if the Team Jacob fans will drag me into the street and shoot me today when I go to the midnight showing wearing a Team Edward shirt *shudders*

It's beyond insane and I've made a point of staying out of this fandom. I browse lion_lamb in time for the movies because they usually dig up a lot of clips and such that I wouldn't find otherwise, but I never speak a word. I'm all about the lurking because I just know that if I leave lurk-dome, my head will roll within moments. :\

YEay on the tickets though! I hope you'll have lots of fun! :) And lol at your dad, but I agree with him. The movie seems much more actionpacked than the book, which I'm all kinds of bouncy about. I'm glad we'll get the action of hunting Victoria, and the big battle etc, and it seems from the trailers and whatnot that they've fixed the Edward/Seth vs Victoria/Riley fight and made it much better. That always felt anti-climactic and annoying how it was handled in the book!

Me, I'm going on an all nighter. From 6pm until like 2am, I'll be at the movies watching all three films. :D
