Heavily deserved mockery of the Twilight series.
Advertisements [?]
As presented by a webcomic. And no, I'm not the creator, since I'm rather emphatically male.

The webcomic's creator dug up complete excerpts of the stuff she's discussing and put them on her forum for comparison. She's right on the money. THEY REALLY SPARKLE. (And the less said about the sex, the better.) :puke: :mad:

People, if you want good vampire novels, go pick up Barbara Hambly's "Those Who Hunt The Night" and "Traveling With The Dead" (bonus: "Dead" has some heavy, HEAVY criticism of the whole vampire romance deals so popular with bad authors), or George R.R. Martin's "Fevre Dream."

And let's face it, a former British Intelligence agent turned Oxford linguistics professor and his M.D. wife dealing with vampires shortly before WWI (Hambly), or a grouchy pre-Civil-War steamboat captain (Martin) are much more interesting characters by definition than little Miss Perfect Modern Bella.
