Mentioning Twilight or Inheritance is against the rules in some literature forums. By which I mean, actually written into the official rules, not just unspoken protocol. And plenty others have just the unspoken protocol.

Really? Why?

That seems a bit strange...

I have to say that they do not know what they are talking about. I love Harry Potter (a lot) but still, how can you compete with Twilight? After awhile, Harry Potter bores me. Twilight never does.
I must say, I agree with the friend. Harry Potter has much more potential to be a classic than does the Twilight, hem, "saga". And Twilight will never stand against the classics. It just doesn't have the potential for that sort of greatness.

no...but, i think that the people who don't like twilight are the ones who are maybe kind of freaked out by the idea of vampires and humans together or something.
Well, I actually have started officially saying that Vampire/human romances are creepy like cow/human romances, but that was just as a sort of backlash against their ridiculous popularity... Or specifically it was me explaining why I was only willing to collaborate on a completely platonic vampire human interaction story. More specifically, I was trying to minimize risk of trite, unskilled writers answering my summons.

I can see the appeal, but it's gotten SOOO old. Authors who rise past the cliche get love, though.

It's rather hard to explain to fans, actually.

...Um.


Purple prose? Very little character development, too much short-cutting, a lot of flat characters, etc...

Oh, and the fans get on people's nerves.


Sorry. Just telling you why.

OK, fair enough. I guess everyone views the books differently.

Personally, I disagree. But as I said, different opinions.

Although I would agree with that for Inheritance.

Sort ofish, my best buddies introduces me to Twilight (but I just moved last year so I don't see them very much) In my new state, a few people know about Twilight, but I haven't found a major amount of fans at school.

There are apparently a few Twilight fans at my school(they ride my one friend's bus), but I don't really have a chance to talk to them because they're a grade ahead of me. One of the girls in the group I sit with at lunch has read them, but we don't really get a chance to talk about them because nobody else really cares :( . I'm going to try to get my best friend/s to read them though!
