I have a fantastic episode of Tumblr deep dive in store for you today So you may be looking at me and thinking huh? That’s pretty impressive that you managed to keep that shirt for an entire decade and the joke would be on you, because I bought this recently We are experiencing a minor Renaissance of the Twilight fandom. These are ad.., presumably, adults who liked Twilight as kids and teenagers, who are just making tumblr blogs about it again. I found one of these blogs a couple months ago, and I followed it I thought it was hilarious. I figured it was just one person But um, it’s not this is a bit of a small phenomenon going on on tumblr people, just getting into Twilight I really want to look at this today because it’s just so… It’s just so funny and so inexplicable and I kind of get it because I myself, without knowing that this exists, relatively recently hate watched all of the Twilight movies. Hate watch, it started as a hate watch, but we genuinely had a great time Okay, we have entered the Twilight tag. The plot of Breaking Dawn Bella will have sex she will get pregnant and die. that’s…. That’s about it, yeah. I picked up some Twilight Barbies at Goodwill, Edward and Jacob were fine though I wish they come with their clothes Bella had glue head. Excuse me? Did they legit restore some Twilight Barbies just for the heck of it. Hook up with kinky singles. Oh tumblr… Oh Tumblr you special special place… It’s the Twilight Renaissance baby. Me, shamelessly writing MarySue like self-insert fics because it’s 2019, life is hard, the world is figuratively and literally on fire and I need every shred of positive energy I could get. Draw your favorite character getting it on, make that saucy self insert, make your original characters Over-the-top. Do it all even for the cringy fandoms My flesh is mortal, but my soul is unwavering, cringe culture is dead and I’m bringing in its corpse for the reward money That’s it [Outro music] This is what you see when Carlisle is about to fist you. This fandom has zero chill Okay, this is a Carlisle fan blog It says “Carlisle is the bee’s knees” If you were not… If you didn’t read all the Twilight books in fifth grade like I did Carlisle is the dad… guy who turned them all into vampires. If you don’t like Carlyle click here This is exactly something that I would have done on my tumblr and been super proud of in like 2011 I used to have, like, all of the buttons that were like “archived” “ask” on tumblr I used to have all of those lead to different pictures of Nicolas Cage. Early tumblr was high culture what can I say? Twilight on main? It’s more likely than you think. There’s something wildly funny about the Cohens keeping a painting of the Volturi in their house Even though they hate them I know this was meant to be a funny post but having recently read all the books I would say Car… Carlyle definitely does not hate them. He disagrees with them. We’re getting into the Twilight discourse. Okay? Listen, I’m 22. Now. My pretend hatred for the Twilight franchise is over I love them all and we’ll watch them all the time as many times as I want to, I am being dragged back to childhood so hard. Oh god, someone did the face app thing on them? I hate that. Fight scenes: toxic by Britney Spears Sneaky scenes: Pink Panther theme. Tom foolery scenes: Cantina band from Star Wars. Romantic scenes: My heart will go on the shitty flute version. Someone do this for Twilight. Lmao. I know it’s coming. I know it’s coming. [Shitty recorder music that is unbearably bad] The urgency and fear in Edwards’s voice when he says you need to see what I look like in the sunlight does not make sense Bro, you just Sparkle. That’s literally it. It’s not a big deal. Why are you such a dramatic whore? This is truly no reason for him to be like that Eddie boy just is like that sometimes. Edward B. Cullen and the B stands for it be like that sometimes. There’s so many just dramatic slow-motion scenes in this movie. When we were kids there was there was social obligation to hate it, to just be like no, I don’t like Twilight It’s for dumb girls cuz romance and boys was ikey and girls who like that were so shallow and stupid you know? At least that’s how it was like, in my experience being like Like 9 to 12 when Twilight was popular. I still, I read it in fifth grade. I read it when I was 10 or 11 There was such an obligation to rebel against it if you were a cool woke kid, and I feel like we just don’t have the energy to be like that any.. “be like that”. We don’t be energy to be like that anymore. At least my experience of watching it now. I could kind of just be like “this is dumb” but it’s so funny and I felt like this was perfect for a tumblr deep-dive episode because my channel is so often about Loving things that are just so weird and dumb and inexplicable. It sparks is joy if you will and uhm Yeah, so I see why people are just kind of having a crisis and being like “everything sucks but you know what brings me joy Twilight!” Some people are, like legit in the discourse, like seriously still into it but a lot of people seem to be doing this low-key ironically, like there are definitely some blogs here that seem serious, um and then a lot are just like here’s some Twilight memes I felt like making in the year of our Lord 2019. Any time, I glimpse fandom culture on tumblr anymore I’m just like, It’s [random noise]. Tumblr fandom culture trips me out cuz my stupid lizard brain thinks it’s 2011 for a minute, you know? There’s also a lot of Batman related stuff because apparently Robert Pattinson was just cast to play Batman in something Send me your thirstiest Twilight confessions. I would rather not. Twilight au where everything is the same but James is James Charles, “I am Laura, this is Victoria and James” “Hi sisters” James smells Bella. James: “You brought a sister snack.” I’m gonna leave like So many times in this video I can’t with this I’m good. I’m having a spiritual experience today. This is all the dialogue but it’s just switched out to be James Charles adding sister. cinematic parallels. Also in this particular scene in the movie. There’s a whole ass part where they’re just explaining mitosis, like whoever was writing This was like yeah what-what Did we learn in 10th grade biology that we can have them banter about so They just have it like, they talk about mitosis for too long. Okay, but imagine watching Bella and Edwards relationship from the outside like okay this new girl moves to her school. She starts dating that really weird guy from that really weird family and then he leaves her and she’s like really depressed for six months and then he comes back and like six months later you’re invited to their wedding. I would be like “bitch what the fuck?” and then they go on their honeymoon Only to have him come back and be like, “oh, yeah, she’s dead now, so sad” That sounds like an episode of one of those true crime shows where they know he murdered her but never have evidence to prove it. Oh god. Oh god, it does and we were all super woke 12-year olds to be like, um Yeah, actually Edward’s gross and creepy. Like no shit, but that’s why it’s funny. That’s why it’s funny. Okay, that is why in this house we love Twilight ’cause it’s Everything about it is “why would you do this” but it is iconic. It is actually really iconic in its own way I would recommend watching the first two movies, I think? cuz they’re like peak Twilight and they’re genuinely like pretty entertaining movies the third one sucks the two parts of the fourth one are fine Watch the first Twilight movie and have a spiritual experience. I encourage all of you to Okay. I remember reading the twilight books in middle school and wondering why don’t Edward and Jacob just chill and allowed Bella to date both of them since they supposedly love her so much and having to choose hurts her? Yeah, it’s unconventional but seeing as ones a vampire and the others are werewolf They should all be able to handle a little more strangeness. It’s a no-brainer I was proud of myself because I thought I had actually invented the entire concept of polyamory. Now that’s peak woke twelve-year-old. People really be writing Twilight fan fiction these days. I’m not gonna read it but, I’m glad that people are finding joy in this and are unashamed to say I like this thing that was known as peak cringy for like the past decade. Twilight Renaissance quality shit. So yeah, as usual if you’re gonna go check out this tumblr community please be respectful to them. We’ve had issues in the past with certain blogs I look at or certain communities overall, just getting a lot of unwanted disrespectful attention. Probably gonna have to say on all of my tumblr deep-dive videos from now on but please be nice to the Twilight fandom . In 2019 we proudly stand Twilight. Ironically. Does anyone know anymore? Also can vampires nut? I mean he got Bella pregnant. is it just venom or is it actual nut? Is venom the same as nut? I think it’s nut with venomesque properties. And if venom is the same as nut and venom is the fluid that keeps them alive n …. Keeps them alive and shit and nut is stored in the balls, does that mean ball is vampire life? I have no idea what I just read with my own two eyes Not to state the obvious But the outrage over Robert Pattinson being cast as Batman as a direct product of the homophobic jokes made about Twilight ten years ago The camp that sees Batman is someone who has to be hyper Masculine and dark cannot stand the thought of an actor who has been associated with a franchise targeted at teenage girls ten years ago also Most of them are probably completely unaware that he has done movies since where he could really show his range as an actor and I am so tired Edward is typically He’s not a very hyper masculine character he’s very like Perfect and clean and groomed and pretty Twilight was woke the whole time actually, I’m Please don’t quote me on that. I’m kidding Of course Twilight has a lot of problematic shit in it But Twilight fandom I am back. Game of Thrones is canceled… So… Edward is Batman now? What if I am NOT the hero what if I am the coolest hero Bella, there’s a quote in the movie Possibly the books where he’s like “what I’m not the hero” as if to imply like I’m dark and brooding and I am a bad guy and I drink blook This is my batwings apparently. Wait, that’s vampires.. Is this… is why is this why everyone in Twilight is freaking over Edward being Batman cuz these Vampires are also bats. Did mi… Was this obvious am I a dumbass? I don’t know Ten reasons Batman and Edward Cullen have always been the same person and we just never realized it” “Edward is supposedly a vampire vampires turn into bats.” That’s what I just said Pretty more Bachelor loner, the heir to a successful wealthy family of sorts the menacing throaty voice theeee constipated scale of watching from the shadows while you sleep Yeah, as soon as they said that I was like everyone’s such, that he’s cast as Batman, I’m like if anything the character of Edward is so like broody, constipated man that I feel like that’s how I see Batman too – so the recent Batman casting, I guess is bringing up some of this old Discourse. I do think that the cultural hatred of things geared towards teenage girls it is usually disproportionate to how bad those things actually are like Twilight is bad, but it’s not as bad as we all thought it was. I actually saw a really good video. It’s I don’t think it’s a super new video, but it was a video by Lindsey Ellis basically talking about all of this stuff I think it was a fantastic video and you should watch it Imagine being married to spark and getting to cuddle him and it’s a picture of Edward and Bella’s wedding with the tumblr anonymous icon and Spock photoshopped onto their faces someone made that Also another thing for all of the legitimately bad and problematic things about Twilight the soundtrack slaps, especially in the first movie Absolutely iconic. Then a doctor walked around the corner and my mouth fell open. This is from the book, by the way He was young he was blond and he was handsomer than any any movie star I’d ever seen he was pale though and tired looking. That’s her type obviously with circles under his eyes. From Charlie’s description This had to be Edwards father Here’s the thing It’s bad But you can like it anyway. Let’s just like bad things to 2k-19. Edward being happy mood board. Adorable, look at this man being wholesome. Okay, but in 2018 you know forks high school would have a meme page and all the clicks would have running jokes in their group chats. The memes would be about the Cullens and how we were there and someone would be like I saw Rosalie Hale take a bite of an apple today and another person would be like sounds fake but okay and people would constantly be making jokes about Cullen family incest and there would be a running gag of What diet are the Cullen’s on this week? Just imagining the Cullen’s being half cryptid half meme at forks high and this..
this deserves all of its almost 4,000 notes because yes. Walk us through that truly iconic baseball scene. Oh Lord Oh shit wait These are all… these are reblogged from an official twilight account So this was like genuinely like the cast members we’re making this in. Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit Okay, they have no header image the official Twilight at least hide your header. When was the last, oh my god This has to be an active. When was the last post? Twilight 10th anniversary 25th October 2018, okay so before September of 2018 their last post had been December of 2013 So I guess they kind of like came back to get everyone hype for the 10th anniversary? We had Kristen Stewart with Stephanie Meyers the woman with the brown hair and I assume the other woman is the Director of the movies? Can’t believe it’s been five years since the first Twilight movie. What does 2014 have in store for you? Oh my Lord this entire thing is just…. I Don’t even I’m speechless. Let me save my screen recording here so that we can make a nice video The Twilight Renaissance is a thing that’s happening. It’s honestly kind of great and wholesome to see people reclaiming something that was so cringy and subjected to so much hatred that was rooted in misogyny a lot of the time It’s just nice to see people being happy and liking things. I’m absolutely here for the Twilight Renaissance. I think it’s great I wore this in public today Quick announcement. I finally have a P.O. box Send me some Twilight merch. Send me some fanart. Send me whatever you want Thank you ever so much for watching friends and I’ll see you in another video very very soon
