Or rather, that you hate both Twilight and its success?

Unless you didn't mind its success. Which means that, though you find the very subject matter insipid, you also don't care that the very subject you find detestable is also now popular and more likely to influence things than other things you don't find detestable.

The books aren't terrible. It's not good, and the author really depends on deus ex machine a lot, but i've read far worse SERIOUS FANTASY NOVELS that fatguys put up on a pedestal. that being said, they are
a) obviously books for tweens
b) use bad examples of relationships for true love, which will probably fuck some dumb people up. But these are the same people who think that Romeo and Juliet is a love story, so there's little reasoning with that crowd anyway

Not to defend the SPESS MEHREENS, but at least 40k SM obsessives are a nice quiet niche of society.

You dont see millions of them thronging outside Games Workshop to see the new Space Marine model arrive.
You dont see them creepily obsessing over their Marines to the point where they will go on the internet and declare to everyone that ROWBOAT GILLIEMAN IS MY HUSBAND, and then get in massive bitch-fests with anyone who says otherwise. They wouldnt send hatemail to Stephen King if he said that Space Marines werent the best faction in 40k.

So OP, you dont get it.

Most of us dont hate the idea behind twilight, aka a vampire falling in love with a human.

but we HATE the so-called half-assed vampire in the Story. I mean, seriosly?
We are RPler, we know quite a bit about vampire lore, and this excuse for a nerdgirls powerfantasy is such a wuss.

-He doesn't get burned by the sun, while it should mean instentkill, he only starts to glitter. like a gay man on carneval. that's supposed to look cool.

-He doesn't sleep. At all. Even goddamn RP undead killer vampires of doom need to rest SOMETIME. He simply doesnt.

-He comes and go as he please. While I like the idea of vampires beeing able to enter places without beeing invited, this fucker is a freaking stalker. The movie wants to show us : Go ahead, break into the house of the girl who doesn't even know your name to watch her sleep and go through her stuff while you at it, if you tell her the next morning you were the one who stole her panties, she will love you!

-Blood. There is nearly xero in it. The whole time noone of them is dringin ANY of it, till she got bitten. and then the protagonist looks more like he has diareah then sucking sweet sweet blood. They are freaking Vampires, lots of them, and even IF they drink animal blood, shouldn't that mean that there are no animals left after 400 years of hunting?

>> No.10154965


I find it the other way around, on account of 40k fans constantly finding starcraft related stuff and letting everyone know how much better mehreens are than marines. I have never seen, and never heard of, a twifan hijacking a discussion about, say, WW or Hellsing vampires and ranting about how twilight vamps are better, etc.

>> No.10154969

>Complains about vampires not burning in sunlight

>> No.10154970

-Age. The guy is over 400. Well, if you live for 400 years, unable to sleep, I think I would be going crazy instead of joining highschool to meet a 17 years old girl that I want to love.

-Vampire powers. Lets be fair here, vampire the maskerade had shown different versions of vampires, so vampire special powers are acceptable. even bellas special resistance is alright. No, what I mean is that the vampires in the movie are not the vampires who use elegance or charakter. He straps her to his back and then begins to jump from tree to tree. Very elegant, I think most woman would puke after that or fell of, and the fight in the movie is rather boring, since both cant get hurt, until the others pop up and finish the evil guy. and that he would bite bella was quite clear since the title of the movie.

-which brings me to another point: Vampire VENOM? Vampires are some kind of poisinous snakes that somehow have the ability to injekt a virus in your blood and can magically suck it out again? The FUCK?
I know you can suck out most of the poison of a snake bite, but you cant suck out everything since your blood gooddamn moves in your veins man. So ether this guy is able to suck you blood backwards through your veins, or this scene makes no freaking sense, other then showing *how hard *sob* it is for him *sob,sob* to bite his beloved *sob,whine,sob* Bella to rescue her without killing her*whine,sob,whine,sob*
I mean come on....
talking about bella..

-Bellas face expression ist that of a dead raindeer. She just looks the fucking same way all through the movie, always convinced she is strong and stuff.

The movie has a romantic idea, but the protagonists are just plain wrong. The whole idea of vampires is lost to this movie, all that is left is sparkling pretty boys...

Death through exposure to sunlight was first used in Nosferatu. The film industry has shaped the Vampire myth far more extensively than the various pieces of folklore and fiction devoted to them.

Probably not going to occur on 4chan, anyway.

Hellsing, I could see, maybe...

But Twilight tends to attract the girls (and 40-year-old women) who are "Too good" for stuff like anime and RPGs, because "That stuff is for geeks".

I sort of came to terms with Twilight. Not in that it's got some redeeming features, oh no. It's in that it's likely the closest thing to a female-dominated geeky interest. D&D, Video-games, etc etc... they're all pretty geeky, but you'll notice that there's been no public outcry against Twilight as being geeky.

I came to terms with the fact that the ones who dictate that sort of thing are women. The more of them into something, the less geeky it becomes.

Have you noticed how video games have become kind of less geeky over the years, and especially within the last five? Yeah... Wii. Old fogies and women are getting into video games, now, because it's been dumbed down and casual'ified enough for them to stay interested.

But Tabletop RPGs, though the social stigma was always worse than for computer games, unless by some act-of-god that creates a tabletop RPG that becomes popular with women (That is to say, almost exclusively with women, and to say something that has enough popularity with them to make the common social stigma fade or disappear)

So these days, rather than respond with grimaces of disgust, I just throw back something equally nerdy back in their faces.

"Oh yeah I went to watch New Moon this weekend, and picked up the latest book. what about you"

"Oh I painted up some miniatures, which I took to play with at my LGS the following day. I also picked up a few new RPG splatbooks"

"God you're such a geek"

Hellsing the anime is overrated shit, the main character is a fucking Mary Sue and you'll always know two things:

He won't die cause he's a fucking mary sue, it makes for a boring fucking character when the entire day ends in "LOL I AM ULTIMATE VAMPIRE I CONTROL DURPNESS I HAET SHARP TEETHED NAZI" and everyone around him is just as bad. I don't know why it got popular, the villains are great and have variety, but dear fucking god hellsing and the bimbo are bland as fuck, it's like a scrawny whiney 8 year old coming and sitting in on your game playing a fucking warlock and claiming he's inevitable to everything because he made a deal with satan or some shit, and that because he provided some backstory, that justifies the action.

>> No.10155257

You know, for all that can be said about the Twilight series, I will say this: All of the non Edward/Bella focused stuff was actually kind of interesting. Even though it was focused on a family of vamp-mary-sues, the rest of the vampires in the series were actually kind of cool, and honestly, vampires are so generally inconsistent between incarnations as it is, her changes didn't piss me off too much.

Pesronally, I would take Anne Rice's dick-sucking, child-molesting, super-fag vampires over Twilight's sparkly cockbends any day of the week.

The Vampire Lestat is pretty epic, if you get past the gay.
'Young' vampire encounters super-ancient vampire guy, who is housing the first vampires - male/female pair of egyptian magicians that summoned a powerful evil force and became undead. First two vampires never move, but are pretty much all-powerful and thus dont need to.

Female ancient vampire falls for young vampire, kills ancient male vampire, young vampire flees. Ancient female vampires hunts young vampire down for cold-dickings, shortly after he finished putting on a FUCKING ROCK SHOW and getting attacked by angry vampires that want to gut his ass, before his mom - who he turned and has fucked - comes to save him.

You're pretty wrong though. Things are being judged by their cover here, and books were never particularily geeky in the first place.
Also reading books is a traditional female activity...at least where I'm from (which is nothing women decided on, btw).

There's also a lack of console games being marketed towards women in the first place. They've only expanded the market to include oldfags like us because we got older and did not stop buying console games. Women and their approval play little to no role in it.

>> No.10155364

Not really.

The biggest turn off, I think, is twofold

1) The rules aren't written in such a way that the ungeeks would say "OH NO! I HAVE TO READ?" in the back of their minds.

2) Warfare and battle isn't really of interest for the ladies.

It's sales would have to be several things

1) Made to look like the old grognards and stale-smelling neckbeards stay the fuck away from it

2) Be made from the ground up in a way that caters to them.

Chances are it would not be a miniatures wargame, as that really doesn't appeal to the ladies. It would probably be some sort of really rudimentary, prepainted, Clue-looking board with characters they could roleplay as. It would look more like an RPG than anything else, but saturated with love triangles, etc.

General Hospital: The Game.

That said, I'm no expert on the female psyche, but the number one thing is that even the ugly fatties think they're better than greasy neckbeards, and thus don't want to play with them. I think that eliminating that stigma would give the gaming community a huge boost of popularity, though would be hollow words if they didn't do something to get rid of the ugly, lonely, and smelly men to back it up.

After watching two seasons of True Blood I finally understand that I dislike vampires quite a lot. Vampires are only about sex. They've been only about sex since Bram Fucking Stoker, hell even before that.

I finally understand that the appeal of vampires is that they allow women to immerse themselves in rape fantasies and lonely angsty men to live out their dreams of power... and I'm fucking disgusted with them. I'm never playing WoD agan. Well, maybe mage.

It's more the other way around - the Neckbeards are searing assholes who're gonna undress even the fatty with their eyes and will try to make her feel uncomfortable in order to raise the bromance-level between the boys...they basically will have to lower their Powerlevel significantly to allow a woman to participate without making her feel icky.

Keep in mind that, at the end, it's humans who save the day. Also, the Millenium's entire plan is to stop Alucard from fucking things up. Finally, he does more damage than every other faction combined, by killing everyone in London.

Yeah, Dracula was very much about seduction. There's a whole shitload of penetration allegories in that novel, not to mention how he corrupts the 'pure' virgin maidens by biting (having sex) with them etcetera etcetera.

I'm fairly certain he was described as having a kind of predatory beauty, which could very easily be either. The basic idea was that he had a kind of terrible majesty about him, something both terrifying and worthy of reverence at the same time.

In the book, he was a monster. Dracula was both gentleman and beast by turns. He was an unstoppable force of pure, raw evil. Sex, yes there was sex. But there was also control, monstrous bloodlust, and DEATH. Not nice death, but horrbile, hateful unlife. Vampires eating babies. EATING them. Rape, of men, of women. There was nothing redeeming about Dracula.

Twilight was STUPID.

The Count is still bad-assest motherfucker out there, god knows what sort of backstory Jim Henson would've done if he had time left on this earth.

Remember fraggle rock? He made fucking backstory on every and each one of the races involved, from exile to fraggles and the civil-wars and exctinction of the bigger, huge nosed neckbeard elementals.

And signing trash piles.

Dracula was actually about a lot more than sex. Really the sexual overtones are probably its most shallow aspect. Dracula is also about new vs. old, traditional vs. modern, mysticism vs. science, and East vs. West. Written at a time when western Europe was undergoing some very significant changes, Dracula is very much about the fear of the Old World, but also the reluctance to let it go.

There's a lot more to Dracula than just sex, gore, and evil. Hell, some interpretations actually describe Dracula as a representative Jew.

Vampires have always been about death. their presence killed things, killed families, homes, destroyed all their loved ones, even if they failed to realize it. they were haunted, empty wrecks that brought death, disease, and horror with them.

Vampires were always about death.

Let's compare

>Nosferato; Movie and Book, Nosferatu
Hideous motherfucker that if you see it, you are going to get hunted down like errant cattle lost in timber wolf infested forest. You are going to die and you aren't going to get any love moments out of this one.

>Dracula Bam Stroker, silver screen movie and sequel

Turned into first vampire ever due to pact with the buddy-buddy of his satan, he charms cute women and adds them to his growing harem of mindless bloodsuckers with no memory of former selves, holds entire village under his thumb where everyone is scared shitless even uttering his name.

Watch movie Nosferatu, if your attention span can tolerate lack of shiny objects and generally honest acting. Then proceed watching original Dracula and it's sequel, assuming that you arent furiously masturbating to whichever material you prefer.

>> No.10155982


It was more of seduction and not that dracula needed anyway, since his stare could break will in manner of moments and make reading books much, much easier after nightfall.

Seriouly, glowing eyes would be rather interesting to have, like in movie dracula.

You walk into the room, and she's standing there, lookign into the crib. She is smiling, because, well she really can't help it. Dessication has drawn the flesh from her face into a taut mask, and her teeth are bared and longated. Her long, filthy nails rest lightly on the edge of the crib, her paper thin, parchment skin makign no noise. She looks up, and you catch the light from her eyes, a flash of reflection like those of an animal in the dark lookign into the firelight. She seems startled, and is simply gone.

You run to the crib of your son, and you see that he is no longer breathing, no longer a member of your family. you wife has taken him from you, even as she herself has been taken from you. And soon, tonight, perhaps tommorow night, she will come, and look upon you, and you too will be dead.

And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

THAT is what vampires used to be like, before books and stories and pleasant wishful thoughts about sexy lovers.

I'd argue that Dio was more awesome in the first storyline, so if you haven't read that I can't recommend it strongly enough.
Although, I will conced that the third adventure DID pick up a whole lot once the team finally reached Cairo. Not just the final fight with Dio, but all of the other fights before that were really good once you get to that stage.

Nosferatu was heavily based upon Stoker's Dracula - or more accurately, was an unauthorised film adaptation that drew the ire of Stoker's estate. Most of the copies of the film were destroyed once the filmaker's lost the legal battle with Charlotte Stoker over copyright theft. All the guff in Bram Stoker's Dracula (Coppola) about Dracula becoming a vampire because of epic anti-God butthurt is, well, guff.

>> No.10156240


It was still interesting concept on vampire focusing on the monsterous side rather than the eloquent nobleman, the film is rather common though thanks to the few reels that weren't burned to crisp.

>> No.10156259

screw you, the Kindred are awesome.
Play a Nosferatu or draugr or something if you don't want to even think of the seduction angle. Or just savage people as whatever clan you want, that works too.

So why vampires are cool and popular in fiction?
Simple - they are dangerous cruel bloodsucking immortal sun hating undead creatures of night without concept of mercy....
So everyone liked them because of that.... But nowdays somehow they cant slap popular label 'vampire' on anything to make it cool... But at the same time taking away many of those traits, wich made vampire concept popular.
Like hurr i don like sunny days and drink blood for teh lulz...

Spoilers: All vampire fans are either fangirls or demented otherkin cunts that refuse to live in reality and yeah, they are women too.

"Men" that think themselves vampire have serious self-esteem issues and tend to kill themselves to escape the world.

And, by the way. Vampires are not always about sex and besides, its a collection of folklore legends so there is no definite or correct way displaying them, this is more of an marketing and the souless monster idea don't market as well.

Everything that is above human is edgy, excluding otherkin and borderlining furry fandom its popular with the butterball teenagers.

My girlfriend turns 18 late summer, and she used to massively squee over Twilight, grew out of it early this year though.
She's pretty thin and lithe, and certainly not a bad looker.
