Vampire Wannabees Converge on Dallas

"Twilight" convention brings out the vampire fans

Since we're not staffed with 12-year-old girls, or their mothers, the opening of the unofficial "Twilight Saga" convention, TwiCon, snuck up on us.

Thursday was the first day fans could go to the Sheraton Dallas to talk about creative writing topics like: "Twilight All-Human Fic: No Vampires? What's the Point?!" or attend "Cardio with the Cullens." But, the real meat and potatoes for fans will likely come during Saturday's cast sessions with Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli, and Billy Burke, among others.

Note: we say "for fans" because we had to IMDB all of those names (though we'd seen them in other stuff). Causal "Twilight" fans might enjoy seeing some of the convention, but it's the hardcore members who frequent sites like that will really feel their wannabe-vampire hearts pumping.

While we're not quite "fans" of the source material, we do know how much fun a convention can be. Our trip to A-Kon just a few months ago reminded us. So for those of you on the fence, maybe a trip to the official site will help whet your appetite.

Excuse wannabe ? I'm here at this convention and TWILIGHT DOESN'T NEED VAMPIRES TO BE HUGE! If only Twilight was dealing with immortals IT WOULD STILL BE HUGE AND I agree I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE VAMPIRE ASPECT OF THE BOOKS because honestly the characters in Twilight books are so awesome and interesting they don't need to be attached to anything!
IT'S FUNNY THAT SOOKIE FANS ARE HATING ON TWILIGHT FANS ALL TIME at least Twilight fans don't have the time and hate to do it to Sookie fans.

For one- you need to sign your comments
you can't post something like that and then hide behind Anonymous !

You will need to contact the director of NBC- DFW, if you don't like the use of the word wannabe that if the EXACT article they RAN - I didn't write the article only reported it ...

Don't you look really stupid for being so rude ????

Contact the reported and editor here is you want to complain about the WORDS THEY USED NOT ME !

You can't argue logic with them. I think they spend their entire lives with Google Alerts going so they can find the slightest criticism of Twilight and then go flame the comment board, anonymously usually. That's how teenagers comport themselves, which is why no one gives them any credit.
