Twilight Author Bored With Vampires

image

If your claim to fame involves vampires, it's not really ideal if they begin to bore you.

There are four books in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, but the author had planned to write a companion novel titled Midnight Sun that has been heavily desired by fans. While writing the book is still a priority, she's hit a little bit of a snag. Frankly, Meyer is just sick of vampires.

Regarding her work on Midnight Sun, Meyer told TwilightSeriesTheories: "I know that's what everyone cares about. I also know that the right answer would be for me to say 'Oh yah, it's done! And it'll be out next month!' But that's not true. It's also not true that I've got a ton of work done on it, and that's what I'm working on. What's true is that I'm really burned out on vampires."

Midnight Sun is written from the perspective of Twilight's 104-year-old teenage idol vampire Edward Cullen to give a better idea of his character. Meyer says that writing it "feels like homework" and that it's "a little bit hard when people are like 'This is the only thing you can do, and it's the only thing we care about!'" She doesn't want to be typecast as that author that created a massively popular series about bloodsuckers that can passionately kiss.

Some might say that the lack of more Twilight is a good thing, while for others it's either a guilty or non-guilty pleasure. If Meyer is sick of vampires, maybe she'll write something new about, let's say, emo Frankenstein teen idols instead? I hear guys stitched together from the body parts of random corpses can be really attractive to teenage girls.

Oh sweet lord the Irony.

These guys will sum up my reaction:

Okay, they've ruined vampires. On to space marines!

What a coincidence; we're bored with Twilight.

NEXT.

She'll have to wait her turn. The modern FPS has been spoiling those for the past five years.

I wish I had her success to actually burn out of my chosen career providing I had that sort of money.

That's odd considering she's never actually written about vampires.

So, in other words...

The moment she isn't writing from her Mary Sue self-insert's perspective anymore, she realizes her stories are boring?

Well, better late than never.

So what's next? Emo zombies? Sparkling ninjas?

Oh no whatever will the Twi-hards do now?
Probably turn on each other.

She is such a huge moron. I'M GONNA WRITE ABOUT MYSELF MANIPULATING VAMPIRES WITH SEXINESS OH WAIT VAMPIRES SUCK NOW BECAUSE I CAN'T MAKE ANYMORE AUTHOR AVATARS.

...too much capslock. Oh well.

HK_01:
So what's next? Emo zombies? Sparkling ninjas?

Pff, Ninjas Sparkle all the time... of awesome. You just never get to see them if they don't want. ^.^

How can she bored with vampires? She hasn't actually written about vampires.

Hurr Durr Derp:

That is actually an interesting observation.
I guess it is boring to view the things from the perspective of a perfect boring person.

Uh-oh...I'm sensing some terrifying Chupacabra fan girls in the very near future...

I have not read twilight and I am even sick of it!

The "a little bit hard when people are like 'This is the only thing you can do'" screams to me that she might be a little upset by the critics who have slammed her work harder than she slammed the vampire stories of old.

It took her 4 books, but she finally gets it? XD

And do what? Have sparkle competitions? They're hardly going to suck each others blood now are they.

EDIT- response to tomtom

Frankly, she wrote the last book in, what, 2008? She's had 2 years to come up with something else and instead she writes Twilight from another point of view (literally), some spin-off Twilight novel about another character and then this other crappy thing. It's her own damn fault.

I think she's getting confused. It's not vampires that are boring, it's her characters. She just wants to blame the theme rather than the fact she can't make a decent character to save her life.

Tom Goldman:

HAHA OH WOW

I notice she says she's bored with vampires. But not werewolves.

HEY TWILIGHT FANGIRLS! THE CREATOR HAS OFFICIALLY SIDED WITH TEAM JACOB! TEAM EDWARD DEMANDS HER BLOOD!

And there you go, proof once again that these sort of things just sort of work themselves out. They just take a little "guidance" now and then.

Angry Caterpillar:

Oh, sweet sparkly Space Marine soft-porn. It's new, it's fresh, it's... sparkling. I like that idea!

OT: to quote an old sea dog:

Good God. I just hope she doesn't ruin anything more I care about...

Frankensteining a playboy eh?

Ingredients.
-The face of Sean Connery..
-The body of George Clooney..
-The voice of Ernie Hudson..
-The brain of Morgan Freeman..
-The libido of...BAD THOUGHTS!

I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.

Alright, so, what mythological creatures can be ruined next? And how can she fit in another author-avatar/mary sue... Hmm...

I'm putting my money on mummies.

Well, given she's not written about Vampires yet, where's the problem?

Vampires don't sparkle.

Lets see her make a Halo novel...turning infamous space marine Master Chief into a angsty high school teen trying to make it to prom.

pantsoffdanceoff:

I have to admit this made me giggle.

OT: Really Meyer? Took this long?
Next maybe she'll write Avatar fanfiction where Jake Sully and Colonel Miles Quaritch adopt a child in a homoerotic relationship!

Oh, and Jake has lush eyelashes.

I didn't know she wrote about vampires.

She's an idiot isn't she?

I read the 1st book because it was lent to me when I was sick one week, and literally if it weren't for the movies you wouldn't know what any of them look like. She is a terrible, terrible author.

There were vampires in Twilight? Wow, I must have missed them over all the sparkle-fairies.

Holy crap, I actually hadn't seen that when I posted this.

Ironic.

Or just Hugh Laurie?

I swear to god, if she even thinks about touching Ninjas or zombies I will set her house on fire.

Twice.
