Hey, there's a funny site like FML but where visitors can tell their darkest secrets! It's www.whatasecret.com :)

129, I'm rolling on the ground laughing because of your witty, clever remarks. You should use that one at parties.

no, thats ridiculous. twilight is just the stupidest thing ever. lotr and star wars are awesome. even star trek is agreeably good.

The show itself isn't that good, but artwork from it can be pretty epic, and the new Star Trek movie was pretty epic too.

You apparently miss the psychological stories behind each episode of Star Trek. It's a show meant for thinkers. Not people waiting for shit to explode like in Star Wars.

mercedeslove, are you seriously arguing that Twilight is better than Star Trek, Star Wars, Lost, and Lord of the Rings? I'm not a fan of Lost; I saw part of the first season and didn't like it, but I'd rather sit through a marathon of every show than re-read or watch even one of the Twilight novels/movies. Tolkien went to new heights to create the world of Middle-Earth. Races, languages, locations, history, mythology, geography; Lord of the Rings, and its companion novels, read like the ri

just because the man doesnt like star trek doesnt mean its not cuz hes a thinking man theres a thin line between being intelligently creative and just plain boring

#27 my school has a whole class dedicated to Harry Potter, so you can't always go by that for levels of intellectual genius (although HP is far better than Twilight, and Tolkein *was*, in fact, a genius). JS.

Excellent post, tinuelena. You should, however, bear in mind that mercedeslove is likely a 13 year-old girl and will be unable to understand it.

yeah, the Twilight books made me cry... because they were so poorly written. Seriously, I've read fanfiction written by pre-teens that was better than Twilight. Not to mention how disgustingly sexist the entire series is. Barf.

Sexist how? Because a HUMAN, couldn't overpower a vampire ? Hmm, now, if she COULD overpower him, I'd find that a little strange. Aswell, it's a classic romance. If you don't like romance, why the fuck did you read/watch it? Surely, the intro on the back of the book/movie should have given you enough info to decide whether or not you wanted to watch it?

Firesprite2009: Stephenie Meyer has one talent, and that's making you care about her characters. I only began to read these books when Breaking Dawn had been out for a while, and I was engaged enough to read them one after the other. She is quite talented at ensnaring the reader. I will give her that. However, this does not mean that the writing was good. This does not mean that the story arcs were solid. This does not mean that the characters grew. And, quite frankly, when I reached the end

I do actually enjoy watching/reading Lord Of The Rings, haven't seen it in a while though D: &, I appreciate your opinion, and in not taking my head off for voicing my own opinion. :] Just incase you might actually wonder why I liked Breaking Dawn the best, probably because of the way Jacob and Edward got on with each other, to please Bella/Renesmee, or the unity of everyone to save Renesmee and the rest of the Cullens. Although, I agree with you that hardly any of the characters progress

firesprite: Good point about Rosalie. And I did like the fact that Edward and Jacob grudgingly put aside their differences for the safety, sanity, and well-being of Bella and the child. Again, not everyone likes the same things, and I'm glad that a couple of us can agree to disagree and have an adult discussion about it. Again, there's nothing wrong with reading/liking/being a fan of Twilight. It only irks me when people mistake popularity for artistic merit. I mean, I enjoyed the hell out of

True, & I agree about the mature conversation. I just find that FML is not a place to bash something, they have hate wepages for it, so essentially, should half the people on this page not be on them? Again, thank you for not taking my head off. xx

Twilight is sexist because Bella remains the whitty and pussy-ish character she was in the beginning. Even Ginny Weasley and Hermione Granger are far more independent that Bella and her "perfect" Edward.

Reply

Are you kidding? Twilight was terribly written in both the common person's perspective and from a literary perspective. The characters are either angsty, whiny, or feel nothing, and are horribly unbalanced. The writing itself is terrible, and the plot construction is absurd. Meyer has no idea how to foreshadow or build to a climax (She almost did in BD, but then the climax DIDN'T HAPPEN. WHAT THE FUCK?).

I am glad to see that not all internet-goers are illiterate degenerates, and that there are still people around with good taste. This made my day. Even though arguing with a pubescent girl about twilight will get you nowhere.

#5, being a fan of Twilight is FAR worse than Lost or even Star Trek, and there is nothing wrong with Star Wars (well, the original movies were pretty sweet. The newer ones were all about Anakin whining and bitching about EVERYTHING!)

Reply

Thanks. My point was: Bella remains the damsell in distress, which is a basic sexual behavior. (A lady in trouble, handsome guy who she is in love with comes to rescue). Which in neither Star Trek, Star Wars, LOTR and Harry Potter happen (Unless you count Ginny, who by the way was UNCONCIOUS and was not crying for help [i.e. Help ! Help! I need the guy I'm in love with!!!!!!!!1])

Reply

Bella, I agree didn't develop, the only one I felt developed was Rosalie. Edward & Jacob were okay when they decided to stop fighting with each other. But apart from them, I see your point.

lol, this is the second ongoing argument about twilight I've seen. the first one was more random tho. the post had nothing to do with twilight.

Reply

tinuelena, you are my hero. although, killing off a few characters... stretches it. more like... almost all characters. four father figures. James, Sirius, dumbledore, and LUPIN.

Reply

tinuelena......I think I love you...O,o You seem to be an extremely literate person on all accounts, and I've been writing a book myself. Any chance you would want to look over what I've got so far? I can always use some advice from someone like you:).

66 - I'm 13 and could understand it perfectly. Have more faith in humanity (though I see where your doubts come from).

69: It's definitely not a classic romance. I have no idea where you got that from.

When I was in middle school, it was cool to hate Britney Spears...now its cool to hate Twilight...what will be next?
