"I’ve been marathoning Twilight movies all day, which has been totally enjoyable…
and I’m thinking about how easy it becomes to dehumanize the creator or fans of something extremely popular. I’ve done this, too. I made fun of the Twilight movies without even having watched them. I’m sorry for that, and embarrassed. When we make fun of Twilight, we’re ridiculing the enthusiasm people have for unironic love stories. Have we nothing better to satirize? Yes, you can read misogynistic gender dynamics into the stories, but tens of millions of people have also proven that you don’t HAVE to. Do we really believe that tens of millions of people who found themselves comforted and inspired by these stories are merely wrong? Isn’t our disdain FAR more misogynistic than anything in the stories? Art that is entertaining and useful to people is a good thing to have in this world. And I’m grateful for it and celebrate it. So big ups to the Twilight fandom, and to Stephenie Meyer, who has been relentlessly attacked professionally and personally over Twilight…in ways that male authors of love stories never are. I’m gonna go back to watching the movies now. /rant”

RIP to all those who didn’t make it to 2014. And to those that did; I’m so, so proud of you.

Everything can be justified by the words “for the love of camelot”
Kill a man? For the love of Camelot
Get a speeding ticket? For the love of Camelot
Start a war that kills half your army? For the love of Camelot
Accidentally marry a dragon? For the love of Camelot
Die and leave your boyfriend waiting for you for a thousand years?
