I read the initial pitch for Twilight by Moore and was like 'ok, Alan' because yeah it sounded awful but you're absolutely right Charles that if it got published it wouldn't look anything like that thanks to the DC editors going '... no' on a bunch of stuff.
I am disappointed. I thought I was going to read about Alan Moore's take on Stephanie Meyer's Twilight.
All I know is that Twilight breaks the one main rule of dating I have. Half your age plus seven. Edward is 117 so he can date a 65 year old. Dating a teenager? That is just creepy. Like... what do they even talk about?
I do like the idea of an immortal vampire constantly getting into trouble with the police not for biting necks but rather by dating people their own age and because they permanently look young, all their partners get arrested for noncing.
I mean to me even more funny is the idea of this clearly teenage looking guy who cannot use a cell phone, email, Netflix, and a dozen other things. He has a rotatory phone in his house and listens to 1930s jazz records. Stuck in the past but looking like "an old soul" kind of teenager in the present.

It does feel like something that, arguably, could have been pulled off if he'd pitched it as an independent universe.
To me the “romance” works best as the intro to some US or UK “Hunter” agency or society. Some dumb teen in the woods with a vampire suddenly sees red dots all over her vampire Romeo and then “get down!” As he is tased and drops to the ground. “Subject 12 is down and the girl is safe.”
