To be honest, I read Twilight. I enjoyed it too, at the time. It’s somewhat hard to remember that innocent enjoyment now, what with my allergy to over-hype. But it seems we’ve finally reached a point in all the Twilight-mania where my enjoyment can return. That point, my friends and patrons, is the backlash.
Oh, how I love snark.
On November 4, The Harvard Lampoon released the Twilight parody, Nightlight. The first chapter is available online through Entertainment Weekly, and proves to be mildly entertaining. For those familiar with both Stephenie Meyer’s infamous series, and the movies it’s spawned, Nightlight may prove to be a breath of fresh air in a fandom that's getting rather stuffy with fanaticism.
My favorite part of this parody? Waiting to see the outraged response from the Super Fans. Now THAT will be amusing.
