I've been 阅读 a lot of 评论 from people who seem to loathe everything about the Twilight series and its fans, and I have to say I'm having a little difficulty understanding why. While I'm not a possessed fangirl, I did 爱情 the 图书 and have yet to hear a strong argument as to why they're so terrible. There are plenty of negative 评论 ranging from "Edward is a pedophile" to "Stephenie Meyer can't write", but nothing I've heard 或者 read has rung true to me. There are so many vicious remarks circulating, I doubt I will be able to remember, and thus respond to, all of them, but I'd like to address at least a few of them here.
Firstly, Edward is a pedophile. While technically this could be considered a truth due to his chronological age, I have to disagree; Edward was bitten at seventeen and thus frozen, mentally and physically, in the state in which he was turned. He may have 更多 knowledge and experience than most seventeen 年 olds, but he's really just as he was when Carlisle bit him.
Stephenie Meyer can't write. Aside from the phenomenal success that says she is at least able to put a sentence together, I think the idea that someone "can" 或者 "can't" write is a matter of opinion. 你 may like certain styles of 写作 that another person doesn't particularly care for, and that's fine, but 你 have to respect that. Nobody has the same taste in music, food, books, 或者 even other people; if you're going to put someone down for being drawn to something 你 happen to hate, it only looks bad on you.
It wasn't love, it was lust. I'll admit, Bella definitely showed interest in Edward physically, but 你 skipped large sections of the book if 你 think it was that simple. When Bella first became involved with Edward she actually told her "friend" Jessica that, as amazing as Edward was to look at, behind the face he was even 更多 amazing, and over the course of the story Bella put herself in considerable danger to keep him safe. Would 你 die for lust? I didn't think so. Now, if 你 want to argue that she didn't know him well enough to be in love, I can understand that, but once again disagree. While I don't believe in 爱情 at first sight (that would be considered lust) I do believe in the possibility of a connection 或者 sense of magnetism that makes 你 want to know the other person and care about them. Bella and Edward both felt that for each other, and, 你 have to remember, everything is supposed to be heightened 由 a 邪恶力量 element. We don't have 吸血鬼 in reality, so we can't really compare what they're feeling to normal relationships.
Edward stalked her. Once again, a 邪恶力量 story can't be compared to the real world. Yes, in real life if your boyfriend watches 你 sleep 或者 secretly follows 你 everywhere, something is seriously wrong, but Edward is a vampire and all the characters are living in a significantly different place. If any haters have read Midnight Sun, they would see some of the thoughts behind Edward's actions and know he wasn't a delusional head-case. Part of the reason he kept an eye on her, while sleeping for example, was he never slept and was fascinated 由 her dreaming. He wanted to know everything about her and loved her to an extent that made it painful for him to be away from her. He never peeped at her getting dressed (in his own words he would "never treat her so crassly") and if anything became a sort of guardian for her, laying extra blankets over her when she shivered and protecting her from other 邪恶力量 beings.
Edward cut Bella off from her best friend (Jacob). In real life this is a sign of an unhealthy relationship, but in this scenario Edward actually has a reason. Bella is the most important person in his life, and as such he wants to do everything in his power to keep her from harm. 狼人 are notorious for having hot tempers, and this fact is proven at least a few times throughout the book. Emily's scar is an excellent example of a werewolf not wanting to, but causing, physical harm due to loss of control. Of course Edward felt jealousy for Jacob, it's only natural, but his reason for keeping Bella away was slightly 更多 noble. On a side note, he does eventually reunite them and despite having the capacity to rip a pup like Jacob to shreds, he doesn't, knowing that would only cause Bella emotional pain. Pretty selfless.
Edward wanted to force Bella into an abortion. Four words: to save her life. Having no 前一个 records of vampire/human offspring ending well, and Bella being biased as the mother (not to mention self-sacrificing), of course he wanted to push her towards an abortion. Any medical doctor, 或者 father, in today's world would recommend aborting a pregnancy if it meant the mother wouldn't die and that's as it should be. Bella could have had 更多 children, but nothing would have been able to bring her back from the dead. Of course it was her right to say no, but if everyone remembers, she did and Renesmee was in fact born.
Edward blackmails Bella into marriage. This is true, but it's not that simple. Edward wanted to marry Bella, but he also knew that she was opposed to marriage. What she wanted was to be turned into a vampire, and, perhaps 更多 importantly, for him to do it. What he wanted was for her to remain herself, as unaffected as possible 由 the monster he felt he was, for as long as possible. Using the only bargaining tool he had, he told her that he would turn her, but only if she married him. This was supposed to buy her 更多 time as a human; there was absolutely nothing ill-intending about it.
Lastly, Edward threatened suicide. True, but not to make her do anything, like stay with him, which is an unfortunate reality for many couples in an abusive relationship. The only reason he would kill himself, 或者 find a way to be killed, would be if she was dead. He didn't want to be in a world where she didn't exist, and neither would she if the roles were reversed. Maybe this seems extreme; in our reality it certainly would be, but for the final time, this is a story. Twilight is about a 邪恶力量 爱情 above and beyond what normally happens in our everyday lives, which is why we like it so much, and at the end of the 日 it's here for our entertainment.
Enjoy the action, plot twists and romance 或者 don't, I don't really care, but please don't bash me for finding enjoyment in them 或者 make unresearched arguments because you're sick of a 流行的 obsession. All the fandom would really appreciate it.

We were all standing at the airport saying our goodbyes for now. Alice and Jasper were flying to New York for Alice's clothing line for a few weeks.

Rose and Emmett were flying to Tennessee to see Emmett's parents and Edward and I were flying to Flordia to pack my things.

We had decided to live in LA together. It was easier for me to transfer my job over there than his.

"I'm going to miss 你 all so much." I gripped Alice.

"We will see 你 soon." She reminded me.

I hugged Rose last. "Very soon."

Us girls wiped our eyes and waved goodbye as Edward and I boarded out plane.

He was holding my hand...

Rite there and then I knew Alice had saw something, something important. I knew we had to go so I didn't hesitate to leave. Though I tried so hard to mask my memories from Edward. He can't know whats going on though I don't even know myself. Alice started to leave and I knew to go with her. I would have any ways, I 爱情 her.

We went deep into the forest, far from the house, far from everyone, far from Edward 阅读 my thoughts. As soon as we were at the bounder line between our kind and the 狼 we stopped. Alice spoke. "Jasper don't! We don't have time! They are coming and we need people...

Chapter One
    New house, new school. Different people, but same personalities as all the “cool people” at my old school. Don’t get me wrong, I liked my old school, and I liked the cool people because they were my” cool people” . These idiots won’t be my friends, you’ll see. You’ll all see.
    But then again, I also haven’t 给 this place we’re moving to a chance. It’s because I know I won’t fit in. 由 the way, I’m Laurie. I’m sixteen and I’ve just moved from my 首页 state of New York. 更多 specifically, Manhattan, New...

Fighting for Hope
Jake ran down the abandoned, dim-lit 街, 街道 and stopped in front of a classically-styled Venetian 首页 with white pillars. The door was unlocked, so Jake rushed inside. Everyone was quietly waiting in the family room at the back of the house. Bella and Chloe were safely with the Cullens again, nervous...

I stared at the display for a moment, and then realized what she was doing.

I was going to kill her. I was literally going to strangle her to death. That little interfering, scheming…

"I'm sorry, I must have forgotten." I apologized. No way was I letting Bella know about Alice's little deluded plan. "A bit stressed out with last 分钟 圣诞节 shopping."

"I get that."

"I'll just go, 你 probably have plans tonight." I turned to leave, but her voice stopped me.

"No, I was just about to order Chinese 食物 actually, if 你 want to come in?"

I turned around, not quite convinced that I had heard her...

“Summer…Summer…” Alice tapped on Summer’s shoulder, attempting to wake her, “SUMMER!” Summer pulled the 枕头 over her head, “Go away, Alice,” she mumbled. A few 秒 passed by; Alice bent over and murmured into Summer’s ear, “I’m still here.” Summer groaned and rolled over to face her smirking sister, “What?” Alice clapped her hands together in delight, “Finally! C’mon, today 你 and I are going shopping. After all, 你 seriously need a girl’s 日 out.” Summer impassively peered at already dressed up Alice, “No thank you, Alice. Goodnight.” Alice...

Later on that night we lade in the 床, 床上 neither one of us starting a sentence then I couldn’t take it any more. “Who were those people? I asked him really just wondering who the blonde was. “Those are my brothers and sisters.” I looked at him, He smiled. “The Blond girl is my sister Rosalie, the Black pixie like girl is my other sister Alice, the Black headed is my brother Emmett, and the other dirty blond head is Jasper” he said. I gasped. ”What’s wrong” he asked. “Nothing” I said. “Are they your real brothers and sisters” I asked. “No we just tell every body that...

MOVING
I stepped out of the car. I could feel the sun on my legs from my rolled up jean shorts with my solid 粉, 粉色 tank top. I stared up at our new house.
A 4 bedroom,2 bath,1 pool home. And for a teenager...All of that equals one thing and one thing only...Paradise. And with this sun I could go swimming everyday. My mom came around the car with a her bags.
''Your not just gonna stand there are you?'' She 说 with a smile.
''Just uh...takin' it all in.'' I 说 casualy.
''Hahaha'' She 说 walking away.She opened the door, put her bags down and ran through the new house. I rolled my eyes and...

TWILIGHT - chapter 18 - THE HUNT


"Let's go, Bella." Edward's voice was low and bleak.
This whole time I'd been rooted in place, terrified into absolute immobility. Edward had to grip my elbow and pull sharply to break my trance. Alice and Emmett were close behind us, hiding me. I stumbled alongside Edward, still stunned with fear. I couldn't hear if the main group had left yet. Edward's impatience was almost tangible as we moved at human speed to the forest edge.
Once we were into the trees, Edward slung me over his back without breaking stride. I gripped as tightly as possible...

TWILIGHT - chapter 15 - THE CULLENS


The muted light of yet another cloudy 日 eventually woke me. I lay with my arm across my eyes, groggy and dazed. Something, a dream trying to be remembered, struggled to break into my consciousness. I moaned and rolled on my side, hoping 更多 sleep would come. And then the 前一个 日 flooded back into my awareness.
"Oh!" I sat up so fast it made my head spin.
"Your hair looks like a haystack... but I like it." His unruffled voice came from the rocking chair in the corner.
"Edward! 你 stayed!" I rejoiced and thoughtlessly threw myself...
