STOP PAYING ATTENTION.COM

Like, you know, Stephanie Meyer? Get it? [Mar. 25th, 2009|12:23 pm]
Lucy


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!
Read on.








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.

It should also be noted that this was pretty much precisely the same experience I had... oy. Damn you Meyer.

This is also the exact same thing that happened to me, except stuck in a small beach town.

Thank you for the awesome comic, Lucy!

Well the first step is admitting you have a problem. Honestly I was the same way. Unfortunately I kind of let fanaticism ruin things for me, so I only ever read the first book. They are fun to make fun of but I can't really stand the people who take it so seriously. I really like the way you portrayed it. And now with spoiling myself with your comics summarizing the plot of all four books, I don't need to read the last three. ha. Thanks Knisley.
You rock. I <3 u 2.

PS/ Love that Edward's wedding tux is so Joker-esque. Was that intentional?

Dammit, that was me.
"Oh hey I'll just read this here book here, nothing wrong with that plan."
One week later, (I forced myself to wait for library books. Was not gonna give that woman more money.)
"Oh.....god.....done..... That was.... oh god I have to just read some Anne Rice."
That's what I'm really waiting for with baited breath. This whole teen vamp thing is making all the little girls tingle in the no noes but eventually one of them is going to pick up some Anne Rice and is gonna read That..
And THEN we are gonna hear some freaked out parents!

I think they embed finely-powdered crack in the type that seep into your eyes as you read.

The title of the comic caught my eye...

As that's my last name. Even weirder, I have a half-sister named Stephanie.

OMg. So many people love Twilight, but "Porclein God"? I mean, that's what people out there in Cali call a toilet sometimes.....so that got me laughing.

This is great btw. :D

So, does this mean we'll have to call them Cullens now? *giggle* (I'd've said 'Edwards', but I have friend with that name and he'd have to smack me. ;p

Lucy, you are made of utter awesome with amazing talent sprinkles!
This made me chortle and snort incredibly.

I agree with the explanation of crack embedded in the type somehow. There's nothing other than mind control rays that will explain it.

The crack embedded type would also explain why anyone who read the books a second time (I had to, I had a university assignment to write on the series...I'm not kidding) gets to about page three before the book is thrown at the wall with incredible force - the crack has come out of the print by then.
