After a conversation with my uncle, I have come to realize and admit: (I posted this on another forum I used to frequently visit)

Okay. I'm not a big fan of twilight and I get annoyed with the usual fangirl I run into at the theater who loves to announce to the world she LOVES Edward. The theaters in my town usually occupying the same space (...which is a casino) as other receational areas like the bowling alley, aracade, and a variety of sit down restraunts or fast food joints...these girls are hard to avoid when i go to the local casino with the family or friends. I admit I've blow up at a freshman during my last year of high school for nonstop (very loud) raving of her love for Edward...practically slammed my Kim Harrison book or whatever vampire book that I had a duplicate of on her desk. Then yesterday I was forced to admit a point my uncle presented to me as I was getting annoyed with the group of loud tweenies we were sitted next to at the restraurant. (note: I am usually low key and well even tempered).

Twilight, although a book that includes vampires, is categorized in the romance genre. Not horror like Rice or Harrison. Not mystery like Cassie Palmer or Southern Vampire Mysteries. Twilight, like the cliché romance book or movie, includes the knight in shining armor (the girl's ideal guy), the third wheel (the other guy that loves the girl, but doesn't stand a chance), and the damsel in distress. Although, in this series the knight is apparently flawless, personality-wise and physically.  Due to the fact that I am not a huge fan of this type of romance, I have a bias. I'm not the one to judge other's opinions. Still there is a line between passionate and obsessed. I get annoyed with obsessed.

You hear and see a lot of twilight obsession in high school. I sometimes stop by my old high school to check on the Japanese club, which my class started and I was vp for. I also visit the teacher I used to aide for, who teaches mainly to underclassmen. For some reason, I don't think the underclassmen have acquired volume control as their voices are still a little stratchy.

I love reading vampire books to, but no one's perfect. A lot of the fangirls I've have seen have a picture perfect image of Edward in their mind. If I was to choose a male character from the series that I prefer...its Jacob. at least he had flaws.

When I first left for college, I was all lonely and depressed in the dorm at first. My best friends were still in highschool. (althought we were the same age. we were born a couple months apart...they missed the cutoff to be in my grade by weeks). Then one friend sent me a text stating: "I hope you find your Edward." She meant well, but she was shocked when I replied. "I like my men with at least a couple flaws"

I loved flawed characters. They are more entertaining. My characters (for the stories I've actually finished) are a mess no matter how perfect they protray their life to be. Of course if those supposedly 'perfect' character usually have the biggest issues
