twilight of our idols
Sherwin: and I’ve seen FB posts on it from admiring mothers who are eager to give the books to their daughters and innoculate against Twilight
you mean because THG are more girl powerry?
Sherwin: not explicitly, but the protagonist is a girl and she’s not some wilting belle waiting to be saved
Joseph: yeah but Bella turns into a fearsome vampire with a crazy vampire baby by the end
Sherwin: wooo. motherhood makes you strong.
Joseph: you literally start glowing
Sherwin: can she launch the baby at her foes?
