A Unicorn Strikes again

Dear Twilight,

In case you forgot:

Unicorn: A rare mystical creature only rumored to exist but highly sought after. Like a a guy who likes Twilight.

It’s been so long since we’ve heard from one that I almost forgot they existed. Until….. we got this email:

Dear LTT,

First of all, congrats on your life altering hangout session with Steph. I would have vomited as many times as Stephenie addressed me had I been there.

I decided to check out your website after seeing that you guys were picked to be thrown blindfolded in a van to meet the vampire mother.

I have to say that I am troubled to find out from your letters that I am alone in this world. I am a man. Married with 2 kids and one on the way. Surely it cannot be a rare thing that someone like me absolutely breathes and lives Twilight in his life. Are you saying that I will likely never encounter another male twihard in my life. Sure, I’ve never met one but I always thought it was because I just don’t have many guy friends to begin with. I have never been ashamed of Twilight and although in the deepest part of my subconscious I realize the book was made for middle school screaming tweens, I have never felt ashamed for loving a universe I dream of being real. Your letters, however are a forbidden fruit that has unlocked the knowledge of good and evil. I never noticed all the females surrounding me in the garden. I never noticed that I am the only guy there! And even though everyone else is properly dressed with their team Jacob and Edward shirts and jorts, I am the only one naked.

Little do you know that my heart stands strong for Edward and Jacob, and little will dismay my pride in their story. I may not feel for RPatt and TLaut the way a hormonal teen girl exudes, but my devotion will remain. I will continue buying my TwiPhone covers, and TwiDolls. I will unwearyingly buy my daily theater ticket for one. I will purchase all the Twilight movie guides and read the special Twilight edition People at the front of the bus. And I will stand proud in line to get the first BD tickets as the sun’s rays rise to light up my shimmer glitter on my face. I will continue to cry out in one voice with all my sisters for Midnight Sun.

Even if I am the only straight male twitard on the planet, I will embrace all of you as my own family. The question is will you accept me as the only brother?

¿El Único? (the only one?)

I immediately emailed ¿El Único? back to WELCOME HIM TO THE LTT FAMILY!

Read more from the newest sighting of the rare Mythical Unicorn after the jump!

In true LTT style, I had to learn more so I asked him a few questions & was thrilled with his responses:

How did you lose your virginity? (Uh, Twilight virginity, of course)

Pick me Pick me!

I got into Twilight about three years ago as I was looking for a good wholesome book for my niece’s 13th birthday. I heard about Twilight but being a good uncle I did not want to give her something smutty so I decided to read Twilight to make sure it was appropriate for her. I checked out the book and didn’t even read it cause I kept putting it off. Then one day as I was at the bookstore I picked up the copy and read the back and read Stephenie’s famous “Three things I was sure of” lines and was instantly captured by the premise. I went back to the library and they no longer had any copies available. I had to wait 4 weeks before I could check it out again the whole time regreting not having at least read the back when I had the book. I think those 4 weeks helped to fuel the twihardness I developed as i really looked forward to reading it and was forever trapped in the story once I read it. I remember seeing another guy at my job reading the series during his lunch breaks and thinking this is okay material for me to read I guess. I didn’t discover it was a YA novel until halfway through the series.

Do you know any other Unicorns?
About a year ago, I went on an internet quest to find a simple book club to discuss Twilight. And that was not difficult to do by any means. I went through all the sign up processes and pretty soon I was bloggin away and several websites with questions and answers. Things changed when I noticed that no one was responding to anything I said when I asked questions or when I made commetns. Well, no biggie since I wasn’t out to get attention but I started to feel like I was being ignored. It dawned on me that as I always stated my age (31) and sex (male) on all my posts and the fact that perhaps I spoke with the vivacity and enthusiasm of a common twiteen that perhaps I just miiiiight be a tad bit creapy to those that don’t know me. I was devastated at this realization and felt cast away from expressing what I really wanted. So I decided to send notes to all the twilight fansites describing my dilemna with the hope that maybe there are other Twimen. I KNOW there are others since I talk to them here and there, but no one seems to be as loud and proud as I am in life about it, on the interwebs (“thattwillightguy” is an exception, although he’s not old like me).

Since a year ago, I have received “0” responses. I took this as, “dude, you are pretty creapy so like we’re gonna go eat at that lunch table on the other side”. I continued day to day disheartened by the lack of responses, still reading blogs and participating in whatever Twilight events happened. So when I checked my email today I must be excused for screaming a little bit in my office! Thank you for answering my cries! Well, not that I cry or anything cause I am after all pretty manly just so that can be clear and overstated. :)

What do people think when they find out you are a Unicorn?
Strangely, I have never had an akwkard moment from another guy. If anything they are always interested to hear my review. The weird looks always come from women (and even teenage girls) who have not read Twilight yet. It takes a while for me to explain that it is not merely a girly novel but a really interesting and captivating story for any audience. My best conversations about twilight have been with outher guys. In a wedding reception my brother-in-law and I were discussing the storyline of Twilight since he likes the story too and 3 hours later after the party was winding down and the music softened I heard my sister cry out to my wife, “OMG, they’ve been talking about Twilight the whole time! I thought they were talking about cars!”

Who is your favorite Twilight female character?
I’d have to say that my favorite Twilight girl is Renesmee. Partly because I just had a beautiful baby girl and I find Renesmee incredibly interesting. I really hope Stephanie decides to write more on her life as she grows. I have millions of stories in my head about Jacob and Renesmee encountering new adventures. I wish the woman would write more! I believe Mackenzie will do a wonderful job. I am more concerned about the CG involved in making her look believably young AND realistic. Since she is one of my favorite characters, I don’t want the movie to ruin her for me. I think it’s smart to pick an older actress not just because of the maturity of the character but also just in case Stephenie decides to continue the story and we are in need of an expanded movie franchise and then we’ll already have a fully grown Mackenzie to fall in the roll. Just wishful hoping.

Is your wife a Twihard?
As for my wife she loved it until I got in too deep, then she got sick of it. Somewhere along the line she got tired of hearing me scream about the new leaked photos of feathers! Her abysmal looks tell me all I need to know. She may not like the level I might have taken it but at least she is supportive of me. Eventhough she may not let me get that Edward cut out for our room I don’t let it get me down. I just change the desktop wallpaper to Jacob’s shirtless body to her annoyance. I actually enjoy watching my wife roll her eyes when I tell her about how I can’t decide if Jacob (T-Laut) or Edward (R-Patt) is dreamier.

Tell us more about yourself. You KNOW we’re all wondering!:

PS: This is not ¿El Único? (I don't think....)

I love YA adult stories basically because they are not as smutty and vulgar as many adult novels, but I also really don’t think I am that much different from other guys. I have similar tastes in cars and movies as most guys but I also enjoy romantic stories. My wife compliments me by laughing at romantic moments and loving horror blood and gore.

I am definately not your typically looking Twihard. I kind of resemble a Latin gangbanger from Hawaii with a Spanish accent but I am more of a nerdy happy-go-lucky swedish white boy named Sven that likes techno on the inside. :) I am currently in graphic design in the publishing industry and love to write and draw. I hope to one day become a writer and illustrator myself, but first I need to learn to stop using spell check before I get anywhere on that.

And there you have it!!!! Our newest Unicorn ¿El Único? who resembles a “Latin gangbanger from Hawaii with a Spanish accent” but is more of a “nerdy happy-go-lucky swedish white boy named Sven that likes techno on the inside” (best.thing.ever)

BIENVENDIOS A LA FAMILIA, ¿El Único?

Love,
UnintendedChoice

What do you think of our latest Unicorn? I, for one, still can’t get over that there are ANY guys out there who like this stuff & I know a few these days! Have any fun stories about guys & Twilight lately?

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    A new Unicorn!  Welcome!  I wish my husband was a Unicorn!  Instead he hates everything Twilight…which in a house of 3 teenage daughters and myself is tough!

    Long live the Unicorn!

    • ¿El Único?

       Thanks Sue! My wife wishes I wasn’t! Go figure :)

      • JustGoWithIt

        I think my husband would like it. He loved Harry Potter. He likes watching Pixar movies (and cries during the tear jerking parts). He reads big historical serious books, and could probably use a break whether he thinks so or not.

        • http://twitter.com/Vanessamdn Vanessa Nobre be

          My Husband also loved Harry Potter and likes watching Pixar movies. He watched the saga with me but is not very into that. I suspect that is so, just like unicorn’s wife, because os my obsession with it. Just like ¿El Único? I also love to tease him and tell him how dreamy Edward is! 

      • Anonymous

        Are you saying, that women are just never happy?  That’s my husband’s theory.  ;)

  • nocoolname

    Well color me surprised.  Welcome to the party – we accept everyone, as long as you recognize the ridiculousness of your obsession, as do we all.  :)  By the way, there’s a guy on twitter who’s way into fanfiction (along with his wife), so there are others out there!  Although, now that I think about it, he’s never actually read the books…not sure what’s up with that…

    • Stacey

      BTW, talking about fanfiction…another amazing chapter of your story, lady! I don’t know how you have the time to do all you do with the kids, baby on the way and still being able to write wonderful things. You are inspiration! (Mostly,since I am just striggling to get the laundry finished!)

      • nocoolname

        Thanks…you know I owe it all to you!  Never would have had the courage to post if you hadn’t done it first.  :) 

      • oh werd?

        OOOOOH! I need a new FF writer who’s actually worth a damn. Pen name please?

        • nocoolname

          Mine is Wannabe Charlotte  (or is it WannabeCharlotte?  can’t remember if there is a space there or not…how dumb am I?), Stacey’s is staceleo and TeamJacobEdward’s is TJE.  Have fun!

      • MariaCecilia

        Speaking of FF, there is an Irish duo competing tonight in the Eurovision song contest (favourites!) that call themselves Jedward and have massive rockabilly hair.
        http://i.thisislondon.co.uk/i/pix/2011/05/Jedward_415.jpg 

        What’s with that? Taunting Edward’s hair style? A tribute to a fan fic where Edward is a Jedi knight with amazing (vampire) powers? (The laser sword being an obvious sexual inuendo. Obviously.) 

        • Sisterpenguin

          Please, not Jedward and our beloved in the same paragraph. Jedward (James and Edward) started off on a talent show over here in the UK, renowned for being so bad they were popular. Go figure…

    • ¿El Único?

      Thanks! I do feel accepted here. I think I’ll stay. I would love to read their stuff. Do you know their Twitter account?

      Ditto to all that Stacey said. Wrenfield Hall is wonderful.  I was so happy to see that you’d added another chapter.  And this may surprise you, I was happy to know that it wasn’t going to be the last chapter like I’d thought it would be.  Can you blame me for wanting more WH Edward and Bella?  :)

      • Anonymous

        Ch. 26?!!! Yes!  I check every other day.  I guess I slacked off a little. I will make this short and sweet. I have some reading to do.  I haven’t started THe Trip yet.  I wrote a few down from here to add to my list.  Wasn’t there another one called Forks? 

        Welcome El Unico!  We’ve been waiting for you.  Mr. E will watch the movies with me (on DVD), but that’s about as far as he will go.  He even made our oldest daughter go with him to buy Eclipse for my Christmas gift.  LTT is the best place to come and unleash your Twicraziness.  I am sure there are closet Unis out there just dying to let it all out and feel normal.

        • Stacey

          Yep, Forks. That one is mine. :0) It’s under staceleo and is a very silly story. Just warning you.

          • Anonymous

            I’ve got it on my list to check out. I am not registered to leave comments
            though. Maybe eventually I will get around to it.

      • nocoolname

        Thanks!!! 

        • TeamSeth

          Um, I’m soooooooooooo glad this isn’t the last chapter! 

          AND SQUEE!!!!  Sequel= YES YES YES!!!!!  Who can resist a turn of the century 1st cousins are still okay to marry in England romance?  It’s like Downton Abbey only BETTER because it’s you writing it :)

      • MariaCecilia

        I love Austen and Brontê so I was thrilled to see Wrenfield Hall! Must go back and check on it then.. And I started The Trip, and I really would like to see where this road is leading… Lucky for me it’s my night alone home, and I don’t have to cook. Just me, the Internet and Lemon drop Martinis..*contented sigh* 

  • drsaka

    I saw a unicorn, twice. Both times were on the T in Boston. I saw the same guy reading Twilight and then a few days later, I saw him reading Eclipse. Really.

    • nocoolname

      I know I’ve mentioned this before, but our town librarian is a unicorn.  He’s so cool – he makes sure to order stuff like the illustrated guide and the twilight comic book-thingy.  Although I’ve never actually checked out either..

      • drsaka

        More evidence of their existence!

    • natteringyeahrobber

      Instantly more attractive. As effective as walking around with a golden retriever puppy (or TomStu).

      I’d almost have to take a photo. I mean, must be seen to be believed. Only I can’t get the camera on my phone to not make a loud shutter noise when I take photos. It would be very obvious. But still, I wonder if you take a unicorn’s photo, does it even appear? Or does it just a big orb of light?

      • MariaCecilia

        You could cover the sound of the camera by making a whinnying sound when you take your photo, just to distract the object. Or if he discovers you, bribe him with an apple. (Very appropriate!)

    Welcome ¿El Unico?!

    If you haven’t already noticed this, I think you’ll find LTT its a place for all of us non-crazies who shouldn’t love Twilight because we’re_______ (fill in the blank with whatever is applicable; age, gender, education, etc etc) but do love it, however irrationally.

  • Stacey

    Welcome! I also smiled when I saw another graphic designer was into the books. There seems to be a lot of us. (Like the other Stacey (Snow White Drifted))

    Did you really buy the TwiDolls? I couldn’t even do that. The excuse for buying Edward or Jacob for my daughter wouldn’t really go over that well with my husband. You know a vampire barbie or a 1/2 naked teenage boy doll for a four year old. Maybe I could go with an Alice or Bella. Hmm…my husband did give me the dvd of Twilight for Mother’s Day.

    Even though Rese…I can’t even make myself spell it, THE BABY is your favorite, you seem like a very cool guy. (I might be frightened of talking babies. That ETrade baby seriously creeps me out) So once again, welcome.

    • Anonymous

      Really?? I LOVE the e*Trade Baby! He cracks me up!! The hubs and I both get a good laugh with those commercials. Funny thing though you should mention him in relation to Renesmee, because I’ve mused (with giggles) if the BD CGI team would call a meeting with the e*Trade commercial folks to get pointers on how to make baby Renesmee talk. ;)

      BTW, I’m blaming you for getting hooked on VD. I finally watched the first season last weekend. It was like crack. I’M NOT A VAMPIRE PERSON! Really I’m not. Edward is a huge exception. You know, I should write to talk supe about it. Hmm, write to Talk Supe about my losing my VD virginity (sounds so terrible) or work on the next chapter for my ff… I’m torn. ;) thx for your review today, btw, it made me smile. :)

      • Stacey

        Oh silly girl, all Stefan is Edward’s slutty soulmate. :0) Plus, there’s the added bonus of Damon. (So handsome)  It’s easy to get caught up in it. Plus…season two is EVEN BETTER!

        How about this, first write a post for Talk Supe. You can just email it to me and THEN two chapters of The Trip! (I love it so!)

        ‘I’M NOT A VAMPIRE PERSON’  I am with you TJE.  But just yesterday I considered watching VD.  I didn’t want to read another Vamp series afraid it would alter my love for Twilight, but I just read the four ‘My Blood Approves’ series.  I might just have to give into VD. 

        • MariaCecilia

          I must admit I tried watching part of season 1 of VD just out of a Twicraving (I’ve tried other substitutes too, but they all turn to ashes in my mouth. The venom just keeps burning…) Sad to say I just got restless watching Damon’s antics and Stefan’s moping..but who knows, I might get desperate and try again. Tell me if season 2 makes it worth trying?

          • Stacey

            Seaseon two is so much better!!! I watched Season 1 for Somerhalder and high school memories of reading the books. Season 2, I loved it all! Mostly the last two episodes of this season. It was so GOOD!

          • Anonymous

            ‘Mostly the last two episodes of this season.’  YES!!!! VD (ew!) is addictive even for us NonVamp lovers. I haven’t watched the last episode but it has to be amazing! The week before was…WOW.

            And it sounds like I’ve got some more ff to read! Yipee!

          • Sisterpenguin

            Sssshhh! Don’t say anything. The season finale airs on Tuesday night here in the UK

        • Sisterpenguin

          The VD tv series is fabulous (mmm, Damon and no paedo guilt) but you can skip the books. They’re starting to do a Sookie Stackhouse – feels as though the storyline is getting ridiculous just to keep the series going. Perhaps a shade of Lost in there as well…

    • ¿El Único?

      No, I really don’t have the dolls but only because my wife keeps slapping them out of my hand when I go to the toy store. I try to explain that our baby girl will need toys soon. She sees right through me.

      • http://www.talksupe.wordpress.com snowwhitedrifted

        I snuck in the dolls. I (accidently ) have the New Moon Edward, the standard Pocket Edward who sits on my work desk, overseeing the pens… Then my 4 yr old got the Barbies in the summer. My defense: I need them for “work” and by work I mean to take silly pictures for Stacey and my blog.  Yes, Pocket Edward now wears a kilt and drinks TruBlood. #ThatsNormal

          Please don’t mention kilts.  I saw a restaurant while in Birmingham called The Tilted Kilt.  My friend and I got excited imagining male waiters in kilts and wondering what was underneath.  Then I looked it up on the internet and was dissapointed to find out it was a Hooters knock off. Why?!!  Why couldn’t my fantasy be reality, why?!

        The trick is to go into the toy store quickly WITHOUT your wife – do it when she goes to the bathroom, that has to happen some time. (Or order them off the Internet. Sneaky.) I’m still debating with myself if I should do it. I’m trying to predict my husband’s reaction when he finds me having morning tea with my Edward doll as he comes home from his next business trip… (“Darling, it’s not what it looks like!”)

    My husband read all twilight books and watched the movies with me.  He even went with me to the midnight showing of new moon.  But he always shrugs it off around other people. He’s in the TwiCloset.

    There is yet another Unicorn, I believe he is from Seattle or Washinton state at the least.  I met him and his daughter at the twilight convention in Vancouver.  He travels to all the twilight conventions, he always wins the twilight trivia contests and gives the prizes to his daughter, he even wears a Tshirt that says “Real Men Read Twilight”.   Welcome ¿El Único? you’re not alone in this madness.

  • ¿El Único?

    So, my newly adopted Twifam. I am about to create my profile and stick around for a while. Any sugs for my profie pic? I like the idea of a “Real Men Read Twilight” avatar.

    Everyone at work just came here to read my online confessional and everyone (seemed to) loved it. One co-worker even admitted her love of New Kids on the Block and going to concerts. It seems to have brought us all so much closer together. Little did you know the power of Twilight!

      Yay, a male!  And so much more articulate and obviously cuter than BobbyGee (remember him?)  I suggest a unicorn horn for your avatar, cuz the little picture is too small to have people read the text.  Maybe a unicorn horn spearing the Twi-apple?  Kind of suggestive or symbolic, I guess, but nothing wrong with that.  Welcome to Normal!

    Good for you, being so out in the open and proud. Men tend to be good at that. My husband is a nerdy white boy not named Sven who is still really into techno.
    I still struggle with that (my inner Twihard, not my inner white boy who loves techno). Like when our computer froze up with a virus warning after I clicked on a Robsten related link, and my husband was all “what web page were on?” trying to figure out what was happening. And my heart beat fast, and I didn’t want to say. He said “You might as well tell me, I’m just going to look in the history”. I felt a deep kind of shame. He wasn’t trying to be jerky (I think?).

    • natteringyeahrobber

      I’ve gotten into the habit of clearing my cache/history on our home computer every time I’m done with my Rob/Twi googling. I also turned off the auto-fill on the address bar, so every time DH tries to type in something that starts with R he isn’t instantly transported to a site about the Pretty.

      p.s. always have two windows open. one with NY Times (or some news site) and one with Rob/Twi stuff. That way when someone walks in, you can look like you are interested in other things in life.

      p.s. 2 – what web page *were* you on? :)

      • JustGoWithIt

         Oh, I do the two pages thing. Right now my other page is YouTube with Kiss ready to play (kid’s request), so nothing newsy, but a good cover none the less.
        I was image googling Robsten, you know, just to see if there was anything new, and some captioned picture caught my eye. So I really didn’t have an answer for him. I have been known to stop by Robsten Love Blog, for my Robsten Positive news.
        On my recent trip I was using my relatives’ computer and stupid Google switched to my settings automatically after I logged onto my Gmail account twice. I realized that when typing in a search starting with “new” (for new york), and the drop down suggesting “new Robert Pattinson intervew”. For a second I was excited because I thought I had a Twihard relative. And then I was really annoyed because the next time my aunt or uncle or cousin used their computer it was going to open up my gmail instead of theirs and suggest they visit Twilight and Rob related websites. Super.

            Right. I know. It was probably the awkward virus. My computer did produce a lot of awkwardly angled foot positioning, hair fixating and lip biting after that day….
            No, it turned out not to be a virus, just one of those scams to try and get you to download useless anti-virus programs.
            And hubby never did call me out for Googling Robsten images. He teases me, but he is a grown man who still reads comic books….so….yeah.

        Yeah, I tried that. The next time the husband used the computer, he asked me why the internet history was cleared.

      But what about Lupercalia (Feb. 15th)? Celebrated by the Romans, and directed by the Luperci, the “brothers of the wolf.” Priests (probably drunk) would strip down to a loin cloth and run around town slapping women with flaps of goat skin (some fertility ritual thing…those Romans). There would be wine and cakes prepared by hot Vestal Virgins. In certain circles, it is still celebrated as “horny wolf day.”

      I think you should add a 4th holiday. Instead of slapping women with goat skin, you can slap the cut-out with jorts.

      • Anonymous

         I am so very much into this idea. Not the getting slapped with goat skin, but I would love to see video of you ritualistically slapping the cut out with jorts. In fact, perhaps we can modify this, and go around slapping anyone we see on the street *wearing* jorts? Yes. I like this a lot. We will probably not even get arrested.

    I think men relate to Jacob especially much. I took my dad to see the movies, and he enjoyed Twilight a great deal (especially the action from the baseball scene onwards) and also Eclipse (particularly the newborn vampires and the wolves). He got so angry at Bella in New Moon for her treatment of Jacob, especially the scene where she ditches him for Edward after he begs her to stay. I think he might be angry with Bella forever for that scene. Yikes.

    Welcome ¿El Único?
    I wish you well on your quest to find a partner unicorn in crime.

    I wouldn’t mind if my husband was a bit more accepting.
    As I’ve said before, I married “Charlie”. So of course he makes fun of my twi-love…until last weekend:

    Picture it… Mr. Snow is watching some fly fishing show (exciting, I know. What’s more boring than fishing? watching shows about fishing) when he calls me into the room.
    Mr. Snow: So I know where we should take our next vacation…
    Me: Where?
    Mr. Snow: Forks
    Me: *stunned deer in headlights look thinking ‘what the fork?’*
    Me: uhhhhhhhhhh
    Mr. Snow: Does that mean anything to you?
    Me: Of course, but how the hell…

    Mr. Snow points toward tv where a couple of fisher-women were perusing the Forks gift shop, fangirling. They bought all kinds of stuff then met there male counterparts and went to the beautiful (insert name of Forks river cuz I forgot it) river to fish.

    So Twilight made it to the “man channel” and Mr. Snow’s commrades were fans. He almost saluted my freak flag. Almost.

    The strangest thing about them fishing in Forks… It was a bright and sunny day?! To which I commented:
    M: It’s so sunny!! Forks is always supposed to be rainy, that’s why the vampire’s like it.
    Mr. Snow: *eyeroll*

    Back to square one.

            OMG just went there and read that day and hoooooleeeeee geezus that was funny. And I don’t necessarily mean to open up the discussion again but I did always wonder about something. Given the fact that Edward’s body is made of like, granite, or marble or whatever, wouldn’t he be on hard all the time? How does he hide something like that while in non-sex mode? Special made industrial strength khakis? And when I think about the supernatural hardness, of course, I am all the more amazed that he managed not to skewer her on the island. Bella-kabob anyone?

             Right? SHAFTS. Jebus. I guess when I read any smexy times I sort of fuzz over those words in my brain (throbbing wet center, engorged shaft, that sort of thing. I think of rainbows or something for a quick second).

            And, the hardness all the time. It’s an issue, but one that does not bear thinking too closely about, because the brain will then go all squicky.

    I have a question for you LTTers. What other good books are you reading or have read that you think I might also like?

    • JustGoWithIt

       I am always looking for books that I can live in like Twilight. I liked The Hunger Games, also YA, and I am currently just starting another series by the same author, we’ll see how that is. I really liked Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere for fantasy (not so much romance), tried American Gods but it lost me about 3/4 of the way through. Liked Harry Potter (you might have heard of it, har har). Although I found myself less interested between the first book until they get older.
      You could put yourself to the test of books that have primarily women readers and try Sookie books (and give in/get in to the vulgar), but I can only really recommend the first have of the series, after book 6 or 7 they sort of fall off.

      • JustGoWithIt

         um half not have.

      • Anonymous

        I loved the Hunger games but sooo tragic. I loved/hated the story. I think I threw the books across the room a few times only to run to it a few moments later. Of course, I only read it because the royal Meyer mother told me to.

        I bought Dead Until Dark and it’s waiting to be read at home, but I’ve heard the comments on the smut so I’m a bit skeered to read it.

        Just started reading Book 4 in Harry Potter. Good series just no romance so far and from what I’ve heard not much in the future either.

        A REALLY good series that just came into existence that I think will be the next thing is Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. Only sucks cuz you have to wait for the next books. I prefer reading all the books in a series back to back.
         
        I may not like smutty books but I do like to read about exploding passions. I’m looking for a series that will make me feel the way I did my first time with Twilight. *sigh*

        • JustGoWithIt

          Yes, I know what you mean, we all *sigh* with you. The Soookie series does involve some exploding passion. C. Harris manages to make blood drinking very erotic more than once (shout out to Eric). Dead Until Dark has *I think* the kinkiest scene in the whole series, during which Vampire Bill heels Sookie’s sore lady parts (after her first time) with a few drops of healing vamp blood on his finger. If you can get past that, the rest is pretty standard.

        • Anonymous

           I looooved Nightshade. The next one is out soon, July I think? I hear that one ends in another cliffhanger, so, ugh. There is a cute steampunk series by Gail Carriager, I think the first one is Soulless. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and they are all out in the open in Alternate Victorian Times. Adorable and only slightly sexy.

        • MariaCecilia

          Me too. But I’m beginning to doubt I ever will.
          If you’re into YA fiction, have you read Lian Hearn’s series about the Otori clan, that begins with Across the Nightingale Floor? 
          I really loved all Ursula K Le Guin’s books, but I guess you know her if you’re into YA fantasy? Her latest series was a trilogy beginning with the book Gifts.

          Love/hating the Hunger Games series is a good way to put it. I couldn’t put the books down, but I just really hated living in that world and in that story! It gave me some nightmares, too.

          One recommendation is The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. One of the best series I’ve read in a long time. It explores a few of the same general themes as Hunger Games, but in my opinion, in a deeper and more relevant way and was way less tragic. There’s a bit of a love story in there but not to the epic level that Twilight had, unfortunately. Stephenie has said that she likes Scott’s work.

          Some of Holly Black’s books are worth a try, too.

          • Anonymous

             I couldn’t put them down, either, but I am fully over dystopia for now. I read them right after reading The Passage and then after I got an ARC of Matched. Bleah, end of world everything’s awful.

            I also read a really great article comparing Bella and Katniss, and it illustrated what bugged me about Katniss, especially in the last book. Bella at least knows what she wants, and she will do whatever it takes to get it (to clarify: she wants EdwardShaft)

            (haha, sorry El Unico, I won’t let it happen again.)

            (yes I will.)

            Okay, back to Tweed: Katniss just goes along with whatevs. Oh, should I kiss Gale? I guess if he wants to! Peeta likes me? Well I guess I like him too then. Be a symbol of the revolution? If you say so! Damn girl! Have an emotion, will ya?

          • Anonymous

            Ooh, interesting perspective on Bella. Not that I’m into comparing one character vs. another between book series (only because it seems so unfair to the defenseless characters), but it is interesting to hear that someone finally pointed out some of the “pluses” of Bella as a character. Bella did firmly take a stand and knew what she wanted, and she sacrificed things to get it.

            A problem with the Hunger Games series was that I never connected with any of the characters in it, starting with Katniss. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why.

          • JustGoWithIt

            I always think it is unfair/unnecessary when people hate on Bella, no need to explain, you know all the reasons.
            I did get attached to Katniss, although I did have a big problem with her character, and how she behaved during the series. On one hand, I thought her inability to really have romantic feelings was very realistic in that extreme setting. On the other hand it would have been a real plus for the books if Suzanne Collins could have found a way to inject more romance into the story and still make it believable. I mean you couldn’t have her skipping through the Games with Peeta finding hidey holes to make out in with a gang of people trying to kill them, it would have been ridiculous. But she seems like a capable author, I’m sure she could have found a way. You do fall in love with Peeta just a little bit though, no?

          • Anonymous

             Yes, of course emotions would be hard to access in such a harsh environment, but Gale and Peeta seem to manage it. Perhaps Peeta could have finally melted her cold, traumatized heart?

            Although, and I know the whole “team” thing is a bit silly, I am totally Team Gale. I am aware I am in the extreme minority, but I liked him better and was bummed when it was all, “And then Gale went away forever. Sometimes he sent postcards.”

          • JustGoWithIt

             Yes. Again, also a missed opportunity to create some romantic tension. There was a touch, but, Gale went away worse than Bill did in the Sookie books. I didn’t get any tingles for Gale, I liked Peeta’s puppy dog schtick.

          • JustGoWithIt

            I think I related to Katniss, because in the romance department I was much more like her than Bella when I was that age. I couldn’t quite understand why young teenagers got into serious relationships for the most part, wasn’t boy crazy, and thought teen pregnancy and STDs were reason enough for me to not have sex. The boys I knew were much more romantic than I was (thank guys).

             that’s interesting. I was (and am) a serial monogamist: 1st boyfriend ever: 9 months. Second boyfriend ever: 3 years. So I relate to Bella’s ZOMG EPIC LOVE thing, despite my nickname :)

            I am hoping RPattz and I can come to some sort of Best Friends with Benefits sort of solution – I think I can be persuasive in this department, and Mr. Slut has said he thinks it’s inevitable and just wants me to come home every once in a while so he doesn’t have to do the dishes every day.

         I liked Outlander. Although also def. into not fade to black territory. We get to hear lots about Jaime’s shaft. I haven’t read the other books in the series. I want to get Trylle on my mom’s Kindle, I’ve heard good things about it. Never heard of My Blood Approves, I’ll look it up!

           We need a revised Summer LTT Reading List, with special category: Good Smutty Books with Lots of Shaft References

          Jamie’s “dirk” is ever present in book one. But It is mostly alluded to in the rest of the series.

        Outlander is my FAV series. I’d step on Edward Cullens head to get to Jamie Fraser!

          Ok, I finally started it. I am speechless. My heart races just thinking
          about reading it. I steal away any chance I get. I can see this addiction
          becoming stronger than Twilight. I totally agree with your Jamie vs Edward
          comment below. I am only on pg. 209 of book one. Thank you!

            Haha, ok. Yeah, they just got married. I still keep going back in my mind
            though to when she was still with Frank and he come home and found the guy
            looking into her window, and then walks off. Does it come back to that? I
            plan on completed the series.

      My reading list in the past, oh, year or so, besides fanfic, has consisted only of books somehow related to or read by Robert Pattinson:  Bel Ami, Water for Elephants, Cosmopolis.  El Unico, I have a feeling our mutual Twi-love thing probably diverges when it comes to Mr. Pattinson, but at least I can pretend those books are more “literature”.  Deluded, I know.

      • JustGoWithIt

         Ha, thanks, I forgot all about other RP project books! I read WFE before the movie was in the works, so sadly I didn’t get to picture RP at Jacob. But I’ll def. get around to reading the others before I see the movies.

        So true TOO, so true. I got Robstracted when he mentioned HP 4! My only other reads besides Rob reads have been British Chick Lit. Not so sure you’d be into that either, El Unico.

       I know I replied to this earlier, but don’t know what happened to it.  Trying again

      My Blood Approves
      Trylle Trilogy (Can you tell I own a Kindle)
      The Hunger Games
      And many have suggested Outlander – which I have yet to start.

      • Anonymous

        (Ignore the dork who posted twice)

        I forgot I have also read Water for Elephants and Jane Eyre.  Oh, and I am number four.

      “Discovery of Witches” would be a good start.
      More vampires and “chaste” romance.

      The Southern Vampire Mysteries/ Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood books are fun. They are mild in the “fade to…” category. 

      • Stacey

        A big YES to A Discovery of Witches! It’s very smart and has a lot in common with Twilight in a romantic and very classy way. Plus, the witch aunts are funny!

      Hola ¿El Único?

      Nerds are cool… trust (I work at a national research laboratory).

      I’m behind on fiction reading these days (save for the occasional return visits to Forks)… it’s not YA and sans vampires, but if Arthurian and Celtic lore interest you at all… and you don’t mind the story being told from the perspective of Arthur’s half-sister Morgaine… “Mists of Avalon” (and its prequels).

      And with the Edward/Mr. Darcy comparisons… I know it’s not a book, but even my dad enjoyed watching it… it’s a British miniseries on DVD that involves Pride & Prejudice with a modern twist (by way of a portal to the past)… “Lost in Austen”.

      Bienvenido!

    ahhh so sweet, welcome to the place nobody judges the craziness and the 2nd hand embarrasment =) 

  • TeamSeth

    Oh Sven!  You’re not alone.

  • MariaCecilia

    Oooh, I love this! I’ve been ready to vomit the last couple of weeks at the many snotty guys spewing hatred and comtempt at all things Twilight on the movie blogs, now that WFE is up and running. Yeah, sure, it could be jealousy (I know your weewees are tiiiinyyyy you haters!) but sometimes I get the offensive feeling that it’s  pure hatred of women and everything that women likes. I would love to meet a guy who can admit to loving Twilight! Maybe he could help ME come out of the closet more!! :-)

    Oh Wait!  ¿El Único?! (wow, can you do that? “?!” huh. Anyway…) as far as slightly unsmutty YA that is still crazy awesome: The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Steifvater. Sam even calls himself “dangerously emo” at one point. Looove. Starts with “Shiver”, I think.

    Welcome,  ¿El Único?!

    I think the series has a lot more appeal to men than most men would admit. It’s just the stigma that’s been attached to it that’s holding back a wider audience: first marketed as a YA novel and then of course with its ridiculous popularity and marketing towards the tween girls.

    I have at least one straight male friend, however, who enjoys it and my husband likes the movies, so you are not alone. I think in the end it appeals to anyone who is a little bit romantic, who likes something a little bit out of the ordinary, and who can simply appreciate a page-turning story.

    Our little group of twimoms has a unicorn, we call him twiBob. He rocks, he is real and he is married with 4 adult children. He sees the movies and attends conventions with his daughters and his wife hates Twilight! He even has a personalized license plate. They are out there and I love getting his perspective on the saga.

  • sweetinator88

    yay unicorns!!!
