Fanfiction Fridays: Pokélight

This fanfiction is the most amazing fanfiction I have ever read. Unfortunately, I cannot find the original tumblr page it was posted on. What I do have, however, is a screenshot of the entire fic. Of course, I’m using the term fic rather loosely. It’s more a spoof on Twilight, using the Pokémon universe to both make fun of and show what’s exactly so ridiculous about the original Twilight story. It’s rather simple, but highly creative.

This Pokélight story is very short. I could sit here and tell all of you what it’s about, or what happens in it, but, like Twilight, that wouldn’t be much. Pokélight just does the decent thing by at least being entertaining. And to be honest, it would take less time for you guys to just read the fic and be amazed by it than for me to talk about it. So go ahead and hit the jump, and if any of you have a link to the actual tumblr post, please let me know so I can credit it.

pokelightBe amazed by it! I command you!

I draw, I write, I paint, and I read. I used to be really into anime and manga until college, where I fell out of a lot of my fandoms to pursue my studies. College was also the time I discovered my asexuality, and I have been fascinated by different sexualities ever since. I grew up in various parts of the world, and I've met my fair share of experiences and cultures along the way. Sure, I'm a bit socially awkward and not the easiest person to get along with, but I do hold great passion for my interests, and I can only hope that the things I have to talk about interest you as well.

  1. Have you guys ever made a post about how Twilight is an abusive relationship? I saw a post about how Twilight was categorized as “YA Romance with Abusive Relationship” on Goodreads and how that was accurate, and the whole Edward and Bella dynamic does make me uncomfortable, but I cannot place my finger on what exactly makes it “abusive” per se.
    Then again the amount of pedophilia and necrophilia in the books is enough to make one’s blood freeze…

    • At one point, I wrote two posts on the religion in Twilight and talking about whether or not that influenced its misogyny. I think Blackout may have also talked about Twilight, though I don’t remember whether or not his post focused on the relationship.

      We could do an in depth review of it, if you would like us to. Edward’s and Bella’s relationship is abusive in a way that a lot of people don’t realize because it doesn’t involve physical abuse. The abuse deals with coercion, stalking, and controlling behavior. Bella doesn’t really have any say in the relationship. Even before they’re dating, Edward breaks into her room at night without her permission to watch her sleep. This is a violation of her privacy and a serious form of stalking. In the third book, he disables her car so she cannot visit her friend Jacob. This is controlling behavior that isolates her from other people he doesn’t approve of. He constantly reminds her that she’s weak. She then internalizes that and blames herself. Etc.

      There’s a lot to indicate that the relationship is abusive. Here’s a blog entry talking about it in detail:
