Why I hate Twilight Part I: Stephenie Meyer is a Horrible Person and Writer
Section C: Pancho and her Fans
I truly believe that Stephenie Meyer doesn't give a shit when it comes to her fans. Yes, she thanks them in all her interviews, saying how she wouldn't be where she is if it wasn't for them, but does she really mean it? I don't think think so. She's in the biz for herself, and herself only.
She is right about one thing though; without all of the billions of whiny tweens who eat up her every word, she would be absolutely nowhere. This is why I don't understand where she gets off acting so high and mighty all the time. She makes a fool of herself in basically every interview she's ever given. When questioned about the poor reception of Breaking Dawn she said, "But how can you possibly meet up with the expectations that this book had? It just got so built up. There is no book in the world that could stand up to that. So I knew it was going to happen, but at the same time it hurts."
I recall a time when there was a bigger hype for another book that actually exceeded expectations... what was it? Oh yea! HARRY FREAKING POTTER
Suck on that Meyer. There's no excuse, really. Anyone who can write even remotely well could have come up with a better storyline.
In her interview she also said, "If people wanted a really depressing, tragic ending, I gave them a lot of hints that it wasn't going to be that way. They really shouldn't have been surprised!There's no way to make everybody happy. When I do one thing that a lot of people want, there's always the opposite reaction."
It's like a big FU to whoever expected anything at all out of that book.
She never had any real credibility, so no one was expecting a literary masterpiece, but it would have been nice to have a plot. She sold out for her image of a perfect fantasy. It just further proves she wrote it for herself. She doesn't care about what her fans want. I'm not saying you should write for others and not yourself; actually most of the time, you should write for yourself. But in this case, she probably should have tried to please the twitards who are the SOLE reason she is where she is.
When Midnight Sun leaked on the internet, Meyer was extremely upset. And who wouldn't be? I understand her frustration, but just read this, "With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely."
She is a child. Seriously. It's the equivalent of a two-year-old's temper tantrum. Suck it up and just give your fans what they deserve. For flying potatoes, it's your job! She already wrote the freaking story once, how could the fact that it got leaked, keep her from writing the same sucky story a second time? I could do it. Anyone could.
I hate her book series, but I probably wouldn't be wasting my time explaining why I hate it so much if she wasn't such a childish and uptight person.
Next on my list is her husband, Pancho. Poor Pancho. Please imagine this:
Your wife confessed to the world that she had a dream about a hot, Victorian vampire, and wrote a complete saga about it. It was obvious to everyone who read the first couple pages that the main character was modeled after herself. You go on and read the books, and find that your wife's character incarnate falls in love with this Vampire and desires to jump his bones. Also, it is noted that said Vampire is basically granite. And abusive in various ways (but that rant is for a later time).
Yes. Your wife would rather have an affair with a stuffy, socially reserved rock than be with you. Talk about a
Moving on, I just wanted to thank everyone for all their kind and lovely comments on my last post. You are all amazing and thank you all for going on this journey with me :)
Now, I have two papers to write, but I keep getting distracted by stupid things. So I decided to get distracted by my blog, which isn't as stupid. If I'm going to waste my time, I might as well do it on something semi-productive. Because let's face it, when I become famous, this blog will be highly valuable. I can't let down my future fans, so I must blog.
At this exact moment. Ha :D
