What is the big deal about vampires not sparkling?

They don't even exist! I'm not into Twilight but I think that's a dumb argument against it.

  • Vampires are an integral part of classic folklore of every society on earth. A lot of liberties have been taken with them (Buffy is one of the worst offenders) but that doesn't mean people aren't allowed an opinion about it. Think of it as shaving Santa's head, putting him in a dress, and changing his name to Ongina Claus. People would probably have an issue with it. So what if it doesn't bother you personally?

  •  The author of Twilight books took too many liberties in her interpretation of the Vampire which go against the very core of the mythology of the creature. In the eyes of some  that is blasphemy and shows her lack of respect for the creature and the history behind it. Sometimes, there will come along an author who is a GREAT writer- such as Anne Rice, who will change the very fabric of the way we view Vampires. She was able to do this because of her descriptive writing talent. The author of Twilight writes like a 3rd grader... and because of that, her vision of what a Vampire is seems utterly ridiculous in the minds of some readers.

  • The only vampires I am aware of is a species of bat. I don't think they want to sparkle. It isn't very battish.

  • i dont get the whole twilight hype, i know grown adults who are really into it, and i think its just stupid. i prefer the normal vampire lore, stuff thats dark and twisted, not faggish and all things beautiful. its just as bad as the emo twist on goth, just a bunch of wanna-be sissies cause they cant handle the real deal.

  • i love twilight and the whole sparkling thing was just so they could be out in the day, unlike original vampires who burst into flames! i know to the older crowd who loved the classic horror movies their prolly like omg they ruined vampired but they only remade them into modern vampires and i like this better.. the whole twilight stry is great
