[Obligatory Forks-proximity/vampire joke]
Me: [technical correction of Twilight-vampires' capabilities]
[discussion of reading it]
Me: "So my friend recommended I read it for the characterization and it was some good strong characterization."
Her: "WTF, all the characters are so unrealistic, almost cardboard, I mean, OMG BELLA!!! No girls are like that!!!!"
Me: "...um, actually, me at 14? I *was* Bella."
Her: "OMG I'm so sorry."
I feel more sorry for anyone who has to play shrink to a Bella, because that can't be easy.
