15 Days of Dream Team/book!Twilight ― Day 15 ― What do you miss the most about the pre-movies Twilight days?
I miss the days when we didn’t have to constantly feel ashamed or hide the fact that we liked Twilight. When we proudly sported quotes from the books in our profiles or sidebars (or carried the books with us)and enjoyed Twilight in all its cheese~ without having to worry about being frowned upon by others. I miss the creativity and imagination from the fandom. I liked seeing people’s personal take on the scenes through fanart. Now the movies have taken over a lot of the fandom’s imagination and by consequence some of that magic from the books has been lost. I don’t want to sound like an elitist but I miss when Twilight was just a little book series with a large internet fanbase — not because I don’t like it being a worldwide phenomenon, but simply because I hate all the backlash that came from it. Being a Twilight fan nowadays is exhausting because of all the hate surrounding it, and to top it off if you are a fan of dream team you are constantly faced with the criticism by the Rob/Kristen stans telling us to “give it up” and the Gaspard/Emily fans who tells us they are “too good for Twilight”. I guess I just miss the magic that surrounded the world of Forks, the beauty of imagining everything from scratch and the days when we didn’t have to constantly fight for our right to enjoy Twilight.
15 Days of Dream Team/book!Twilight ― Day 14 ― A Dream Team fanfic, fanvideo or fanart:
I didn’t know what I wanted to post for this day. There are several dream team edits I would have picked but I feel bad reposting other people’s graphics. There’s even some dream team fanvids I would recommend, but I finally decided to simply post my latest dream team fanvid. It’s a mix of everything, it doesn’t have a specific storyline to follow - it’s just dream!Twilight from start to finish. I hope you enjoy!
