I'm laughing so hard, I'm choking on my saliva.

*diez adn iz ded*

But then again, a lot of fans couldn't see the point when perfumier Nina Ricci sued over the Twilight fragrance's bottle, calling the company "a jelose looser"...

I'd love to see Meyer sue her just to make a point.

If Meyer herself doesn't do it, her publisher will. Not to mention the studio ... they have way too much money invested in those films to let this slide. And she's doing "casting calls"? NO. WAY. will this be okay.

I agree and the bottles were pretty much identical.

I honestly do not know how she expects to get away with it. What, smeyer is going to read the press release and be touched by her devotion to the books? She's going to pat "Lady Sybilla" on the head and go "awwww!" and give her her blessing and a cookie? As. If.

Boy, won't we look bad when we find out it's actually a smeyer sockpuppet!

Wait what? Characters are only copyrightable if you DRAW them? Lmao. Should I be drawing stick figures of all my characters from now on???

Nah, you just find pictures of the celebrities you want to play them in the movie and then trace the edges. It's interpretive drawing - they may own the photos, but they don't own your pencil marks!

If smeyer gets butthurt and Lady Sybilla gets butthurt, can we lock 'em in a room together and make them have a butthurt-off?

Damn you, Gill. Damn you to Hades for starting this thread.

Seconded! How am I supposed to get any writing done when there's so much fallout to watch.

Thew whole thing is almost as sparkly as Edward's bare chest.

Russet Moon? Lady Sybilla?

Can i be terribly imature for a moment and say her name sounds like some disease? :eek:

Ahem. Obsessed comes to mind, that's for sure. Maybe it's the fanfic/Meyer version of Jerusalem Syndrome, they're so drawn in to Twilight, they think they're Meyer...

I think i'd better leave this thread now... :eek:
