While doing my morning ritual of seeing what new news there is about the filming of New Moon I had a thought. Shocking I know but I went with it. Once Breaking Dawn has been filmed and released what is going to happen? There are millions of females (I say female because there are more than just teenie boppers who are in love with this saga) who are completely and totally addicted to anything Twilight. Just google it. Obligatory line from Twilight. For those of you who have seen the movie a million and one times like I have you will get that. :)
Twilight has become such a phenomena that I don't even think that Stephenie Meyer knew how big it was going to be. It is so much more than Harry Potter. Don't get me wrong...I'm not dissing Harry Potter at all. I love that story and I will miss it when the Deathly Hallows movie has finished. There is just something about Twilight that keeps me and millions of others entranced. The way Edward loves Bella, how Bella cannot distinguish the line that separates her and Edward as if they are two halves of one entity. Bella being torn from a deep familial love for Jacob and the burning sexually tense love she has for Edward. How two deeply entrenched enemies can bond together as allies.
I could get so deeply wrapped up in analyzing this story and every facet of it from Twilight all the way through Breaking Dawn. I know that there are many people out there who have and will continue. Thing is...I'm not going to do that. I want to enjoy the story for what it is. A boy (well vampire) meets girl. They fall in love. So it's based around vampires, werewolves (I hate saying that because they AREN'T werewolves but shapeshifters but I'm digressing aren't I?) and other mythical unknown things. It's a fictional story. Who cares what the analytical stuff is. I don't think that Stephenie does. I'm sure she is just looking at how a dream she had one night turned into a multi-million dollar baby. I wonder though...since she has started "Midnight Sun"...will she finish it and give that to us as a parting gift once Breaking Dawn has been released in theaters? This Twilight mom can only hope she does.
