Critical Analysis of Twilight Club

Preface:
I have read all 图书 and seen the movies.
Most importantly, the fact that it’s 幻想 doesn’t excuse the themes and messages in the book. Fiction is merely a vehicle humans developed to communicate important lessons, values and philosophies. I am not claiming any of the implications I discuss were intentional on SMeyer’s part. Whether 或者 not the 作者 或者 readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages about what is acceptable 或者 admirable 或者 desirable.
Also, I highly recommend link. It’s long, but fascinating and deeper than the 图书 themselves....

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

First off, I’d like to mention that I am not a psychologist. Everything 你 read is just my own analyzing and since I am interested in Psychology and Behaviorism I decided to make an 文章 of what I think is the basic reason for Twilight’s enormous popularity. I hope 你 will enjoy it.

Recently I came across a post at the 论坛 that 说 about Twilight: ” [it’s] a bit childish to say its a failure, because if it is, then why do so many people (And not just crazy teenage girls either) 爱情 Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

Credit to _lina_ and cinders, because they did it first. 更多 credit to link because that's where this is from. _lina_ used the same one.

------------

Number 1: Someone tells 你 或者 he admits that he has hit women in the past. He has talked about his killing sprees, he has killed another woman (Yes, she is a vampire. Who cares?) in front of her. Check!

Number 2: He refers to all women he has dated in the past with derogatory terms. He may also refer to his mother using such terms as well. Not sure about checking this one 或者 not. He says she is the first one he dated, but then he talks of Tanya,...

1. Twilight is the product of an immature writer. It reads like something out of my notebook from freshman year.
2. The only difference between Twilight and fanfiction.net is marginally better grammar.
3. And even that isn’t so great sometimes. English major fail.
4. I’ve read fanfiction that is lightyears better than Twitripe.
5. The prose is purple amethyst! Deep, luscious, dazzling amethyst that scintillates and glitters incandescently in the sun!
6. Not to mention, it’s also insanely repetitive.
7. THESAURUS ABUSE! Fancy words are not necessarily better words.
8. The storyline is trite and...

Hi there! This is my first 文章 on the C.A.T spot, about my least 最喜爱的 character in twilight. Actually, my least 最喜爱的 character in history.

Bella Swan.

I seriously can't see why so many twilight 粉丝 like her. She is 说 to be selfless, caring, understanding, and a good role model...when really she's the most selfish character in the whole book series.
Now then, here are several reasons why I dislike Bella.

1) Lack outside of Edward

Has Bella -even once- mentioned in any of the novels what she wanst to do with her life? (Besides wanting to be a vampire to be with Edward forever) Not...

So I was originally going to 发布 this 文章 in the 图书 to Read spot, but then found this place, and I think it fits in here much better :) Anywho, this is an opinion 文章 I originally wrote for my school newspaper. Yes, it's a bit of a rant, but I don't mean to be offensive, so please don't take it that way. Enjoy :)

--------------------------

There’s no way 你 haven’t heard of it. From the first publishing of that first book to the most 最近的 perfume-bottle scandal, Twilight has permeated the very core of pop culture, not to mention high school conversation. No matter whether...

Okay, so I just wrote an 文章 called "Bella Swan: A Rant", and it seems a lot people liked it, which mad me glad! But I've deicided to write an 文章 about Jacob Black, one of the most loved, yet hated characters in the twilight saga
--

Now, what I don't get is why so many people (Especially Edward lovers) hate the guy so much. Okay, yes, he can be selfish, but he was so kind and sweet in New Moon to Bella. He helped her when no one else could, and started to make her smile and laugh again. I really loved him in New Moon(more than Edward, that's for sure.) And to say I was ticked off when...

We have a discussion on the 论坛 here about noteworthy things in twilight. I picked Angela, and now I realize that Jessica is noteworthy, too.


We'll start with Jessica!Hate. Besides Lauren, Jessica is probably the most hated human friend that Bella has. Reasons Twilighters give for this are 'Jessica is a brat', 'she ignores her in book two', 'she's too hyper', and 'i just don't like her'. Some of those are just ridiculous. 'Jessica is a brat'. How? How is Jessica a brat? Answer: She isn't. 'she ignores bella in book two' I'll elaborate on this one later, because it's pretty big. 'shes...

{edited, added some stuff, just an informal consideration of a few of the arguments that support the accusation}

"Bella 天鹅 is a sociopath."

It’s an extreme statement, to be sure. However, it’s not one to be dismissed offhand, without consideration towards its arguments.

First, here are a couple definitions of the term sociopath.
-Random House Dictionary:
a person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility 或者 social conscience.
-American Heritage Dictionary of Cultural Literacy:
Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal....

I would like to note that anne 白饭, 大米 wrote the entire series before Meyer in case any idea's that anne 偷了 it from stephanie __________________________________________________



1. The character louis thinks he deserves to be in hell....hmmmm sound familar to another vampire?Edward perhaps

2.Animal Blood can be drank 由 吸血鬼 but they prefer human blood in Interview with a Vampire AND Twilight soon followed this way

3. The 吸血鬼 skin dazzles humans apparently....Which is a lot like the sparkling skin that the cullens posess

4. There are immortal children in both of the books. The unnamed children...

1. In Twilight, the "romance" as they call it is just there from the beginning. In Percy Jackson and the Olympians (We'll call it PJO), the Percy-Annabeth relationship was apparent from the start, but built up until the 吻乐队(Kiss) in Battle of The Labryrinth and eventually their relationship began in The Last Olympian.
2. In Battle Of The Labryrinth, Percy ran into Greek mythology's equivilent to vampires: the empousai. These were ugly creatures who had flaming hair, one goat leg, one metal leg, fangs, were deadly poisonous, and usually disguised themselves as mean cheerleaders. In Twilight, the...

OK, this is my very first 文章 - I have never written an 文章 for 潮流粉丝俱乐部 before. It's a poor excuse if this turns out to be the poorest 文章 ever submitted, but I'm going to use it anyway... please go easy on me xD. This is LONG, so 熊 with me, I appreciate it!

I have been wondering for some time now about Bella's vulnerability, state of mind, and 总体, 整体 mental well-being. New Moon, in the beginning, was my favourite book of the series, for two reasons: Jacob Black was instantly likeable and interesting, winning the 标题 of my favourite character, but also the black hole that Bella...

I’ve read many lists pointing out Twilight “Plot Holes”, but 更多 often than not, the lists aren’t very valid at all. Half of them are usually just complaints, pointing out something they don’t like about Twilight (Example:” Why would 吸血鬼 go to high school?”, 或者 “Why does Bella have so many friends?”). The rest are just factually incorrect, 或者 can be logically theorized. These are usually followed 由 “Stephenie Meyer obviously ditched history class”, 或者 “Hasn’t Stephenie ever heard of logic?”, 或者 my personal favorite, “I would know, I had a lesson about it...

OK, I know 你 guys are thinking: "What?! How dare you! Bella and Edward's 爱情 is the best and most romantic 爱情 of all times!111Elevntyone!!!1" And then, you're going to say I'm just some guy who hasn't read the books. I'm not. I'm a teenage girl, and I have read all the books. Even Bree Tanner and that bit of Midnight Sun on Meyer's website.

I'll just discuss the reasons why it's not true love.

Physical Attraction
...And 更多 of it.
Picture this. Our great female lead is in an average high-school cafetaria, surrounded 由 average, high school kids. It's noisy and loud, and she wishes she was...

If 你 have ever doubted the insanity of the C.A.T. Kittens, this will cease your doubts. I think it got long enough to be put into 文章 论坛 thread. This makes absolutely no sense, does have swearwords, includes lots exremely odd things, and is kind of innapropriate. You've been warned.

One 日 Bella fell over while being chased 由 Steve the Spider, while Edward and Jacob were kissing. Pausing every once in a while to get a dazzling breath when Alice walked in on them and 说 - "Edward, what are 你 doing? 你 know Bella is over there. Wait...you're GAY?"

"Yes, but don't tell Bella...

I don't like Twilight. I find the characters shallow; the plot boring and cliche; and the hidden messages frightening. But in the hands of another 作者 - someone who wouldn't let their religious upbringing, their misogynistic views, and their twisted romantic ideals colour the story - it could have been really fantastic.

First off, the grammar would have to be fixed. The purple prose minimised and the 总体, 整体 写作 polished up.

Next the characters would have to be made realistic, their actions have an effect on the plot, and their history an effect on them.

Take Rosalie, for example. If Rosalie's...

For people who were expecting this 文章 to be earlier, really sorry about that! But I've been getting ready for school(WAH!), so...you get the point.

So, this article(as 你 can obviously see from the title) is about Stephanie Meyer. Oh yes, I'm pretty sure you've heard of her. The 作者 of the Twilight Saga and the Host, she's pretty much one of the most 流行的 writers at this point. Why?
I really don't know.
The 列表 of reasons

1)Her writing
Okay, even back when I was a mega 粉丝 of twilight(bows head in shame), I never liked the writing. Its just..not good. Hard to explain really. Now reading...

I am totally ignoring Breaking Dawn in this because Stephenie Meyer broke all the rules in there. [Vampires cant have children, they have no body fluids, etc etc]
Reasons i think Jacob is better for Bella than Edward is:
1. Edward/Bellas relationship is based on appearance. She is constantly talking about how good he looks, how velvety his voice is, how graceful he is, etc. She 说 Jacob was beautiful once 或者 twice and called his new muscles impressive once 或者 that she is jealous of his tan skin. She thinks Edward is too good for her because she looks plain 下一个 to him. She thinks Jacob is too...

I'm just sayin' Bella is one of the worst role 模特 ever when it comes to love, sex and life choices and should not have allowed to be published in any shape 或者 form. I mean, when she's made the heroine of the story and marketted at teenage girls.

1. She's obsessively in 爱情 with a control freak stalker.

Unfortunately it seems the vast majority of the Twilight fangirls are too with the very same freak.

2. She wants him so bad that she'll abandone everyone else she loves so that she could be with him. Even when it means she'll practically have to become a blood-drinking corpse.

(The movie 'Eclipse'...

This 文章 is not meant to offend. It is mostly comedy and uses examples from 更多 fandoms then just Twilight. There will also be examples that tak lyke dis and capslock. So be careful when reading.

I'm sure we are all familiar with a fangirl. (Or fanboy, but they are different and we will not be discussing them today.) Put simply, fangirls are very, very, VERY big 粉丝 of something. Twilight fangirls are obsessed with Twilight and will probably have as much Twilight merchandise as possible. A Bangel fangirl may eat 你 in your sleep if 你 are a hardcore Spuffy shipper, and a 潮流粉丝俱乐部 fangirl...
