Did you ever think about reading these books, but then thought:
"I don't really have the time/attention span/proper sort of pre-teen hormonal fascination with vampires"?
Now you can see what happens without taking an entire weekend of your life to wade through
approx. 4000 pages of descriptions on how pretty Edward is!
( Second Page, Cut for SPOILERZZZCollapse )
Not to step on any Twilight fan's indestructible vampiric toes. I did actually very much enjoy my weekend in Forks.
(as evidenced by my reading the entire series in a weekend)
It's just SO FUN to fun on it.
PS: I have NOT seen the movie yet. I will hit that up movie-rental-store style tewt sweeet.
Because I am the only person on earth who doesn't have freakin' Netflix.
...this is basically how I got into the series. And yet I keep finding that I reread them. Often. XDDD

The first four panels of the above story are definitely my favorite, overwhelmingly. "DON'T DO IT!"
This is glorious. Thank you.

I'm a twilight fan.. but this is just too accurate and funny to pass off :))

Freakin' hilarious. That's very much how the books are. Still want to see the movies though, and laugh (or cry, whichever comes first) at how many Twilight fangirls (and guys O.o) are now populating fanfiction.net. And how bad their grammar is. *wonders if they did this with Harry Potter when that came out too*
It's kind of what comes with no expectations. And, dammit, but it's entertaining! I got them at Costco, at least, so it was cheaper. Did the Same with the Millennium Trilogy, but that was actually good.
And I'm older than you, so I have no excuse.

Is that the oblong books in Millerton? :)
It's the Oblong Books in Rhinebeck. Same biz, though!
This makes me feel so much less ashamed about my own Twilight freakout. I was broke so I read them at B&N until it closed and then I drove to Walmart in a blizzard and sat reading in the middle of the shoe aisle and then I ended buying them all anyway. So freakishly ridiculous!
Lady, I don't even know you and I think I kinda love you. I have this twisted desire to collect Twilight Wank, and this is prime. I thank you!
Nicely done! I barely made it through the first book and managed only to read about a quarter of the second book before I gave up. I thought I'd eventually come across something that was appealing about the book since so many people seemed to like it, but the whole story is just about an annoying Mary Sue going on and on about how she's unworthy of Edward's godly hotness.
My mom actually couldn't even make it through the movie and was surprised when I told her that the book is much worse. (Because at least the movie cuts out the nauseating purple prose of Bella gushing over how beautiful Edward is.)
Fortunately, I didn't have that big of a reading hangover from the books brainwashing me like the unfortunate girl in your comic, but I think that book did kill a few brain cells. The Twilight books are really just glorified Harlequin books.
hey - this was linked on Tor.com, thought you'd like to know, you've become a bit famous with this so incredibly accurate comic!
which is, i hasten to add, bloody hilarious.
