This post is dedicated to the cannonists of America.
You know who you are! You go watch an awesome movie but cannot enjoy it because it strays from the cannonized version. "That's not what happens in the comic book!" you scream at the screen. You shy away from Twilight because "Vampire's don't sparkle! And they're not nice!" You say things like, "In REAL life...." as if super heroes, vampires, and Sith Lords actually exist in the real world.
Take a day off, cannonists! Take a big breath! Relax and enjoy a movie every now and then! I know it's fun to know the "real" stories, and what the "real" characters are like, but stories change, legends change, and change is okay. You don't have to worry that, "these idiots don't understand! They don't appreciate the original! These idiots suck!" because these idiots do suck, but caring that these idiots suck is idiotic and time wasting. Find the good in the change, and remember the original, and cannonized, for what they were: awesome.
FYI, vampires change consistently in each and every legend. So which legend are you basing your cannon on? It's hard to find an original vampire, since they originated from things that were not called vampires, and even those changed with each author. But that's besides the point. This post is not about Twilight. For a post about Twilight and it's haters, see THIS.
