The release of Breaking Dawn: Part 2, brings to an end one of the most inexplicably popular film franchises this side of The Human Centipede.
That's right, Twilight is over, and if you are one of the tens of thousands of Australian "Twi-hards", you'll be wringing your hands like an itchy Lady Macbeth, tortured by the knowledge that you will never again see Robert Pattinson sparkle up the silver screen.
But never fear! Throwing the collected works of Stephanie Meyer on a bonfire isn't the only way to keep the Twilight fires burning (although arguably, it's the most appropriate). Here are 10 ideas to sink your teeth into:
1. Make your own vampire skin by covering yourself in Clag glue and rolling in glitter.
2. Make your own werewolf skin by covering yourself in Clag glue and rolling on the floor of your local barbershop.
3. Make your own blood out of glucose syrup, cocoa and red food colouring. Then roll in it.
4. Print T-shirts with “Team Julia” and “Team Tony” slogans, and wear them out to goth clubs. Say you're reinvigorating Australia's leadership debate through a Twilight framework. Feeling extra cheeky? Do some “Team Kevin” and “Team Malcolm” versions. Consider your subsequent beating character-building.
5. Make your own Twilight YouTube mash-up with footage of Jacob with no shirt on set to Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot.
6. Watch True Blood and get confused, because vampires do this thing called "sex" in that series.
7. Rent Interview with a Vampire and laugh at Tom Cruise. Rent Mission: Impossible 4 and laugh at Tom Cruise.
8. Twilight fans understand raw pain, so why not download Nickelback's entire back-catalogue and listen on repeat?
9. Make finger puppets of all the characters and re-enact the films for your terrified friends.
10. Stephanie Meyer says the inspiration for Twilight came to her in a dream. Spend some time interpreting your own dreams, then write "That Time I Had To Do a Presentation at Work Then Looked Down and Realised I Was Nude".
