On another news, less than a week to TMI City of Bones! I’ve already seen a big ad while I was on my way to work. Got me excited. I stopped watching trailers and did not take a peek at the clips. I’m ready to fangirl!
oh god though the vampire academy trailer makes me so angry because literally nothing in that trailer feels AT ALL like the books and I’m really upset because there are people watching it and saying “wow it’s like twilight” or “do we really need another sexy vampire movie” LIKE NO THAT’S NOT WHAT IT IS THAT’S NOT WHAT RICHELLE MEAD WROTE AT ALL
whenever I read the Vampire Academy series, half the time I forget that they’re even vampires. yes, the Moroi need blood and live on a nocturnal schedule, but the books aren’t even centered on the fact that they’re vampires. the important parts of Vampire Academy are the amazing characters and exciting plotlines that have you turning the pages as fast as you possibly can.
please don’t watch that trailer and judge the story based on that. that’s not what it is. I feel like that trailer is nothing like what Richelle Mead created. I’m really upset. It’s all focused on school drama and sexy stuff and blood. Why is it so focused on blood? Moroi need blood to survive, but it’s not like they go killing in the middle of the night and suck their victims dry. Does no one pay attention to how formal and clean the feedings are??? Come on guys, seriously…
I don’t know. The trailer… I don’t like it. It has a completely different feel than the books. Completely. I don’t feel like Zoey is Rose. Dimitri was barely even in the trailer, and he’s kind of the male lead. I’m pretty sure Christian got more screen time than Dimitri, which makes zero sense.
Also Lissa has an accent and I just… I don’t know what’s going on anymore. I don’t know. I’m just really upset. It’s my favorite series and I feel like this is a total let down.
It’s like we have the same mind! I felt exactly the same while watching the trailer. The trailer made it look like a disney-fied vampire highschool movie. The high school drama feel is what really ticks me off. The books more on the political conflicts with the Moroi Royals not some petty high school drama :(
