Among Twilight fans, there are shades of devotion. Some people are casual fans who’ll pick up the books or go see the films, and others are rapacious, Saga-hungry fiends who’ll spend five days on the sidewalk just to see the New Moon premiere or sit outside behind a cramped barricade all day just on the off-chance they’ll see a glimpse of Robert Pattinson at work (Note: all types of Twilight fans are welcome here).
In one woman’s case, she has found that the Twilight series’ hold on her attention is getting to be a bit much, so she reached out to the L.A. Times/Chicago Tribune‘s “Ask Amy” column for advice.
“I have been obsessed with these stories and have really grown attached to the primary male character . . . I feel like I am missing a lot all of a sudden, and I keep thinking about this character and wanting a love like he has,” she explained.
From the rest of the description offered, it was hard not to tell that she was referring to her affection for Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, so the columnist outted her as being a Twilight fanatic and advised that she seek professional help.
“If you confess to an obsession, wonder if you are having a breakdown and worry about your behavior, then you should seek counseling,” said Amy. “You must be the hero of your own story.”
