Oh yes, it’s time for another Twi-hard discussion!
There was a time when I couldn’t step foot in a store without seeing Twilight themed goods all over the place, Twilight had taken over everything. I’d go to any shop and see Twilight shirts, Twilight jewelry, giant Twilight DVD displays and more. The same at bookstores, they ALL had big Twilight displays, some even had an entire section of the store set aside for Twilight alone. But, I’m not seeing this anymore. I haven’t seen an Edward shirt or a Jacob keychain in a while. Even those Twilight character dolls that were once so popular are no longer selling well. It appears that the hype is dying down significantly. It’s not only in stores, but with fans too. People who once argued with me (I don’t like Twilight) over how awesome Twilight is are no longer speaking its praises to anyone anymore. When the big Breaking Dawn trailer was finally released it didn’t get the same amount of love and attention as past films. Countless people that used to be obsessed with Twilight hate it now and trash talk it with the rest of us. It leaves me wondering how many Twi-hards are left, hence the title of this post.
How many of you here still love Twilight? I have written countless posts on this site trashing Twilight, it’s no secret that I absolutely despise the series, I always have and always will. Now, every time I would write a negative Twilight post I would get slammed with hate mail from the Twi-hards – old, young, male and female readers would give me all sorts of hell for saying the tiniest bad thing. But if I were to write something bad now would I get the same response? I seriously doubt it. Yes, there are still loads of Twilight fans, but it looks like the love for Twilight is fading, it’s been so over-hyped that many are sick of it.
I have no intention of writing any more hateful Twilight posts, it has been done to death and honestly I find it boring now. The reason for this particular post is to find out how many of you still love Twilight as much as before. Has your Twi-love grown or faded over the years? Do you think Twilight has the goods to stand the test of time like other popular vampire novels, can you picture teens 20 years from now reading the series? Or do you think it’s only a temporary love, that one day it’ll be forgotten? Leave a comment below sharing your thoughts on it, I’d love to hear from you.
