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,...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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...

{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....

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...

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...

I've talked about some of the things that crossed my mind when 阅读 Twilight in the past. Thoughts such as "when is Bella going to freak out about the Edward watching her sleep thing?" "Did that say sparkling? I've re-read that passage like, four times and it still seems to say sparkling" "Does Stephanie Meyer think deer is a vegetable? no, really does she? Does she think 你 can call yourself a vegetarian if 你 don't eat things like people 或者 those monkeys who know sign language?"
But those are valid thoughts that many people 阅读 the 图书 also thought (well, maybe not specifically...

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...

aagh! I accidentally deleted this when I was trying to 编辑 it. here it is again with a new title:

Bella could have gotten over Edward in New Moon and even had a real relationship with Jacob in time, but she wouldn't let herself. She felt that moving on would diminish 或者 discredit her twu wuv with Edward and the pain she felt after he left. She wants to believe she can't get over it because she wants to believe that what they had was extraordinary, not like any other teenage romance. She wants to believe no one else in the world can relate to what she's going through. She was alone because she...

Disclaimer: The 标题 of the 文章 may seem to be a bit strange, as most of my 文章 that I have 发布 on here are usually issues I have with the Twilight Saga, but I decided that myself as an anti, wanted to write about things I actually do like about the series. Guarantee, I actually do think Stephanie Meyer did create some characters in this series, and I just wanted to 列表 my 最佳, 返回页首 8. This will be in no particular order.

If hypothetically, I were to meet the Cullen, I would think that Jasper would be the only one I probably be remotely afraid of in any sort of way. Or...

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...
