Harvard University’s humor and satire magazine has a spoof of Twilight coming out entitled Nightlight. The Harvard Lampoon has been around nearly 300 years and was initially modeled on the British humor magazine Punch. They have done a parody of anything and everything. According to the description on Amazon.com:


“About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Probably the most famous spoof of the Harvard Lampoon was their 1969 spoof of Tolkein called Bored of the Rings. Many writers of the magazine end up on the sitcom writing staffs in Hollywood. Among their alums is Conan O’Brien.

Cue all the twihards getting mad at Harvard for this. HOW DARE THEY MAKE FUN OF SUCH A WONDERFUL AND CLASSIC BOOK!

I actually enjoyed the books - but that's as far as it went with me. I didn't become an overly obsessed rampaging fangirl who wished to be called Mrs Cullen. The film, I couldn't stand. In my opinion, the film cheapened the book's value and played far too much on the romance side of things.

But, anyway! Onto the relevance of this thread; even though I enjoyed the original book, I wouldn't half mind reading the spoof for some laughs. xD

Twilight is a *cough* classic book *cough*?

Only 4 years had passed since its date of publication and they called it a CLASSIC?! Well, it can't be helped since the book robbed most of the fans of their logical reasoning. Anyway, Nightlight is a good dose of medicine to those rabid fangirls.

I think OP was being sarcastic.


Anyway.


Really considering buying this book. I've read Bored of the Rings, and I loved it. So I have no doubt this book is good as well.


I still haven't read or seen Twilight, and to be honest, I don't see the appeal in it.

But you LOVE shiny vampires, and hairy werewolves!
I'm not into reading spoofs. I even hate when spoof movies come out. It's never that funny. There's always 3 scenes here and there that are good. But either than that.. bleh.

I don't like spoof films that much myself, but I can enjoy spoof books.


Well, maybe not the spoof book of the Da Vinci Code, it was boring.




But Bored of the Rings was great.


I've actually thought of watching the film, just so that I could so how bad it actually was.

This smells like a mere Twilight Marketing Campaign. But does look interesting.
