“Twilight in Forks”
Confession. You all know that I recently read the Twilight Saga. I liked it, but I wouldn’t call myself a hardcore fan. And Harry Potter will always be number one in my mind.
Here’s the confession. I checked out “Twilight in Forks” at the library today; it’s a documentary about the town that Twilight is set in. I just thought it’d be interesting to listen to while I do laundry, etc.
Uhhh…Twilight fans scare me. They have fans that have moved to Forks, Washington solely because they love the movies/books.
Regardless, the community these fans have and their obsession is so fascinating.
I’m not making fun of the so-called “Twihards.” It’s interesting hearing their stories about how Twilight has affected their personal lives. On the DVD there’s even a segment on the psychology of why people visit Forks and why people are drawn to this story.
It’s also amazing to see how much the tourism from Twilights has boosted the town’s economy and how the town is accomodating fans.
Now, I can’t talk badly about obsession because when we visit Orlando again, we have big plans to visit Hogwarts, haha! And Reid has a sword from Lord of the Rings hanging up in our house, along with a lightsaber on display. And do I plan to wear my Harry Potter scarf and glasses to the next movie? You betcha.
