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 in high school.” I don’t really like introductions, so I’ll just get started.

(I’m not saying there are no plot holes in Twilight, but there aren’t as many as so many claim).

1.    Rosalie managed to stay wealthy during the Great Depression because her father was a banker. Basic history tells us that all the banks failed.
Sorry, but wrong.
First off, I want to start 由 saying that it was never stated that the Hales were well off during the Great Depression because her father worked at a bank. Many put far too much emphasis on the bank, suggesting that the bank was the only reason they remained well off. The fact that Mr. Hale managed to keep his job at a place that was still in high demand (which so happened to be at a bank) is what saved them.
Eclipse, ch.7, page 154
My parents were thoroughly middle class. My father had a stable job in a
bank, something I realize now that he was smug about — he saw his
prosperity as a reward for talent and hard work, rather than acknowledging
the luck involved. I took it all for granted then; in my home, it was as if the
Great Depression was only a troublesome rumor.

From the Official Guide (I can’t provide a page number, because I have the guide as an Ebook)
Luckily, the bank her father worked at stayed solvent through the stock market crash and resulting in economic downturn The Great Depression did not seriously impact Rosalie’s family the way it did many less fortunate families.

Nowhere does it say that no bankers were affected 由 the Great Depression.
For those who believe that ALL banks in America failed, and all bankers would have 迷失 their jobs, sorry, but that’s incorrect also.
According to this chart, provided 由 John R. Walker’s link

Close to 31,000-32,000 banks existed around the 年 1920 (pink). The Great Depression is commonly 说 to have begun in 1929 (purple), when about 27,000 banks existed in America. Rosalie was changed into a vampire in 1933 (orange), when around 15,000 banks existed.
From 1929-1933, only about 12,000 out of 27,000 banks failed.
There is a 60% chance that Rosalie’s father worked at a bank that did not fail, and since the bank did not fail, he did not lose his job, and since he did not lose his job, he still received a steady income. The idea that every single American became a poor beggar, migrating to Florida for the bleak opportunity of landing a minimum wage job is completely false. Not everyone lived The Grapes Of Wrath.

2.    Jasper lied so he could 加入 the Confederate Army when he was 17, but 17 年 old men were allowed to legally 加入 the army.
Eclipse, Ch. 13, page 292
I was almost seventeen years old when I joined the Confederate Army in 1861.
So obviously, Jasper was 16, not 17, but there’s still 更多 to it.
According to 大学 of Houston’s link, In 1861, President 林肯 announced that boys under eighteen could enlist only with their parents’ consent. The 下一个 year, he prohibited any enlistment of those under eighteen. But heavy casualties led recruiting officers to look the other way when underaged boys tried to enlist, and thousands participated in the conflict as drummers, messengers, hospital orderlies, and often as fully fledged soldiers.
Since Jasper was only 16, he could not have legally joined the army (even if he was 17). Since it was illegal for him to 加入 the army, he lied. Simple as that.

3.     In New Moon, right before Bella and Alice enter Volterra, Alice hands a guard "a thousand dollar bill". There are no thousand dollar bills circulating to the general public in American currency 或者 in Euros.
While this is true, how exactly is it a plot hole? Just because a currency is taken out of circulation, it does not mean that they don’t exist. The government did not track down every single $1,000 bill and shred them to pieces. There are still, to this day, a lot out there and they are still valuable. They’re actually worth 更多 than $1,000 since they’re collectables. They’re not even that difficult to get a hold of. Anyone could order one from link, link, Craigslist, 或者 any collector willing to sell. 你 may even be able to buy them directly from the US Treasury (but I am not 100% certain).
Also, according to the link United States currency denominations above $100 went out of print in 1945 and stopped being issued in 1969. Every single Cullen (excluding Bella and Renesmee) existed and lived in America prior to 1969. They could have gotten a $1,000 bill, 或者 any other high denomination, without any trouble at all.

4.     When Bella finds out that Edward watches her in her sleep, he says he's been doing it for 2 months. But at that point, Bella has only been living in Forks for 6 weeks.
This is not true at all. We’ll walk through it together.
According to the official Guide, Bella moved to Forks, Washington, on Monday, January 17, 2005.
Edward confessed to watching Bella sleep in Chapter 14 (Mind Over Matter) on Saturday, March 12, 2005.

Just to be sure, I’ll walk 你 through the days between.
*Mon. January 17 – Bella arrives in Forks, Washington.
*Tues. January 18 – Bella starts school and meets Edward
*Wed. January 19 – Edward is absent. (Ch 2. The 下一个 日 was better… and worse. It was better because … and it was worse because Edward Cullen wasn’t in school at all. )
*Thu. January 20 – Edward is absent (Ch 2 The rest of the week was uneventful … Edward Cullen did not come back to school.)
*Fri. January 21 - Edward is absent (Ch 2 The rest of the week was uneventful … Edward Cullen did not come back to school.)

*Mon. January 24 – Edward returns (Ch 2 People greeted me in the parking lot Monday morning … Edward, Jasper, and Emmett all had their hair saturated with melting now. )
*Tues. January 25 – Edward saved Bella from the 面包车, 范 (Ch 3 When I opened my eyes in the morning, something was different.)
*Wed. January 26 – Edward and Bella avoid/ignore each other. (Ch 3 That was the first night I dreamed of Edward Cullen Ch 4 I found myself the center of attention for the rest of the week.)
*Thur. January 27 - Edward and Bella avoid/ignore each other.
*Fri. January 28 - Edward and Bella avoid/ignore each other.

*Mon. January 31 - Edward and Bella avoid/ignore each other.
*Tues. March 1 - Edward and Bella avoid/ignore each other.
*Wed. March 2 – Edward and Bella speak.
*Thu. March 3 – Bella and Edward eat lunch together, Biology blood testing and Bella gets sick. (Ch4 The 下一个 morning, when I pulled into the parking lot, I deliberately parked as far away)
*Fri. March 4 – Edward and Emmett skip school to hunt. (Ch.5 “Won’t I see 你 tomorrow?” “No, Emmett and I are starting the weekend early” Ch. 6 I wasn’t looking 前锋, 期待 to Friday…)
*Sat. March 5 – Bella goes to La Push with friends. (Ch.6 I meant to sleep in, but the unusually brightness woke me)
*Sun. March 6 – Bella researches vampires. (Ch 7. I glanced, disoriented, at the clock on my dresser. It was five-thirty in the morning.)
*Mon. March 7 – the weather is nice and the Cullens don’t 显示 up. (Ch. 7 I woke, for the 秒 time since arriving in Forks, to the bright yellow light of a sunny day.)
*Tue. March 8 – Bella goes to Port Angeles and is confronted 由 hooligans. (Ch 7. It was sunny again in the morning. I awoke with renewed hope…)
*Wed. March 9 – Edward and Bella come out as an official couple (Ch 10 It was very hard, in the morning, to argue with the part of me…)
*Thu. March 10 – Edward asks Bella 问题 about herself. (Ch 10 When I woke I was still tired)
*Fri. March 11 – Edward leaves school after lunch with Alice. (Ch 12 When I woke to the pearl grey sky morning, my mood was blissful.
*Sat. March 12 – Edward takes Bella to the meadow, he confesses to watching her sleep. (Ch 12. I woke early, having slept soundly and dreamlessly thanks to my gratuitous drug use.

Not to mention that Edward never 说 how long he’s been watching her. All he 说 was “I come here almost every night”, so I really have no idea where the “2 months” comes from.

5.    a) If 吸血鬼 are so dense and as hard as stone, how can they 移动 at all, b) let alone so quickly?
a)    First off, nowhere does it say all their skin cells suddenly fuse together, making them immobile. They still have individual skin cells. (The scientific term is epithelium) All skin is made up of epithelium.
Stone is not even made of cells. Stones are minerals, made up of atoms. There are no cells to be found.
b)    How can they 移动 quickly while being dense? Well, everything dense can 移动 quickly. Dense doesn’t mean slow.
The formula for density is Density=Mass/Volume
The formula for velocity is Velocity=Distance/Time
Velocity has nothing to do with density, and density has nothing to do with velocity.

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'...

Twilight vamps&other people;

Don't have fangs,
sparke in sunshine,
live on animal blood and call themselves veggies,
don't have a lumpy face,
live in really rich mansions(?),
don't have souls but are completely lame like rehabilitated drug-users(that never took drugs),
Can't be staked
Are looked (from the fangirls view)upon as superior beings that don't hurt anyone and call themselves dangerous
Stalk young girls only to seem romantic
Fall inlove with small children and beg to be their lover while they are like 16(just 12)
Don't belong in sassy teenage crap that is pure drama

They arenot vampires...

Note: It’s important for me to communicate that I don’t know the 作者 of Twilight 或者 her family personally and I do not intend them any insult; this 文章 is purely academic speculation inspired 由 a story which will remain a timeless work of art. It is the emotional accessibility of the work which makes commentary such as this possible. I may be projecting the whole thing… But that’s exactly why Twilight is so successful, because it invites us so welcomingly into the story!

Every 粉丝 knows the story of the Twilight Saga.
There are many theories as to what makes the story such a pop-culture...

Lately, I've heard and seen jokes and 评论 about Edward being "pathetic" 或者 "gay" because he was a 100 年 old virgin. I've written this 文章 to state that I see no problem in him being a virgin. I feel that virginity is not something to poke fun at. It simply means that someone wants to save themselves for that special someone whom they are going to spend the rest of their life with. I myself am a virgin and plan to stay that way until I get married.

However, I am somewhat confused. If Edward has lived for 100 years and has yet to give himself to anyone, then why does he decide to have...

There are three (3) big categories of abuse. These are the ones that happen on a daily basis, and they are not at all uncommon :( In Twilight, all three of these abusive categories are represented 由 a character. They are grouped as follows:

Psychological Abuse: Edward Cullen
Sexual Abuse: Jacob Black
Physical Abuse: Sam Uley

Now, 你 Twilighters are probably thinking, "Whaa-? That's ridiculous!" No, actually, it is not, if 你 will give me a chance to explain.





Edward Cullen does indeed abuse Bella psychologically. He constantly refers to her stupidity and her clumsiness. Some may call this "keeping...

hi this is my first rant ever hope 你 like it

im a twilight 粉丝 but i hate bella
for several things

first of all when 你 first read the book 你 have the idea that BELLA is very contempt with herself and a normal looking teenage girl that is very unselfish and very kind and loving and warm and falls in 爱情 with a vampire and she would do anything for him ..right..

ok but if 你 concentrate and look beyond all the adjectives s.meyer uses for descriving how beautiful and sparkly edward is and really LOOK at the story and at their characters 你 will realize the truth about bella that is

嘿 there! So recently I just put a Bella and Jacob article, which I really enjoyed writing, and of course sharing my opinions. Some people have 说 they would want me to write a 文章 here about Edward Cullen, so here it is! Hope 你 enjoy it!
--

Now, there's no way 你 haven't heard of him. He is currently every girls dream boy, has the most 粉丝 on 潮流粉丝俱乐部 when it comes to character, and alos has a cult. Everyone loves him.
But my 问题 is...why?
They say he's romantic, a gentleman. Really? So what if he uses chessy lines and says stuff like "You are my life now." 或者 "The lion fell in love...
