I just read the unthinkable! Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer is being sued for plagiarism!
My world has been shattered.
The wronged author is so sad, so upset, so wronged because Ms. Meyer stole, yes stole her ideas and used them in Breaking Dawn. I mean, there aren’t really any word for word passages which were plagiarized, but dangit! She took the idea for a wedding! She copied the idea for a sex on the beach scene! She even had the audacity to rip off the idea of writing about the experience of transformation from human to vampire.
They were all such original ideas! I am devastated and shocked that one of my favorite book series ends with nothing but pages and pages of ripped off, brilliantly original ideas. I mean, honestly, when I first read Breaking Dawn I did wonder a bit. A wedding? Really? Where could she have come up with such a clever idea? Certainly it was not of her own device. And sex on the beach? Who has ever dreamed such a thing let alone written about it?
Through my sobs and tears of utter betrayal and disappointment, I have completed further investigation into the matter. In addition to stealing the ides specifically referred to by the lawyer for the offended, I found that Stephanie Meyer also stole such concepts as:
