I've been debating about posting this for a while now. Went ahead and decided to do it.
Basically, the other day, when I was looking at the local used bookstore, I saw this book cover with a hand and apple on it. But it didn't look like Twilight. And what do you know, turns out there's something else Stephanie Meyer can't think of on her own. Not only the story, the names, but the art as well isn't orignial. So I decided I'm going to make fun of it. Like I always do. Plus, I haven't bashed Twlight in such a long time...
Edit: Because I'm sick of people saying this: [link] It's a link to her freaking damn site that says that SHE choose the apple because of what it means. The "Forbidden fruit" and the scritpure reference and the fact that it reminded her of Snow White. And a bunch of other BS. You wanna complain about that, do your own damn research!
Also, the link where I made the poster: [link] It's free for anyone to use. All you have to do is upload a picture and type away. However, apparently, they also have their site attached to the corner. I did not know that. I'm sorry for that, but I can't change that. It is mine. But it has the sites logo on it.
i'm going to withhold judgement on twilight's originality until i actually read it (which isn't exactly high on my to-do list, given the reviews it got from non-fanatics), but with regard to the image... well, the poster seems to have a valid point. one of these things is much like the other. BTW i heard on QI that biblical scholars now believe the forbidden fruit to have been a banana, not an apple, so the image's symbolism is somewhat degraded by that. (if that was the original intent, at least.)

Want another one? The name 'Breaking Dawn' isn't original either. There's a movie that came out in 2004 with that title. The book, for what I can find, was released in 2008? You have to include '2004' in the search though, if you want to find it. >_< I'm sure the list of things that are un-original about the that so-called saga is pretty much never ending.

I was forced to watch the first movie by some friends I haven't seen since high school... I want those 121 minutes of my life back. >_> Afterwards, I went home, and re-read all of the Hellsing manga, then watched Hellsing: Ultimate... I needed to remind myself what real vampires and werewolf are... I have this sinking suspicion that a majority of Twilight fans don't even know what Nosferatu and lycan means. When I bring up to people how badly the movie sucked, I get told the book is so much better and that the movie ruined it. Yet, Stephen King has been quoted saying how bad Stephenie Meyer is as an author. I'll side with King on this, and refuse to read those 'novels'. I can rant about this for days probably, but I wont go and spam your comments. I'm just glad someone else is on the same page as me about this... whatever this 'sensation' can be called...
Ah yes, after your brain gets fried, give it some nurishment to get it back to the way it was. I doubt they do, even if it was mentioned in the story. They probably don't even know what a vampire is.
The movie sucked because the book sucked. Movie didn't ruin anything that wasn't already ruined. I'm just saying... But the acting sucked, the book sucked, everything sucked. Except vampires and blood, cause that never happened! I just made a stupid joke, sorry.
