I’ve read many lists pointing out Twilight “Plot Holes”, but meer 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 vampires go to high school?”, of “Why does Bella have so many friends?”). The rest are just factually incorrect, of can be logically theorized. These are usually followed door “Stephenie Meyer obviously ditched history class”, of “Hasn’t Stephenie ever heard of logic?”, of my personal favorite, “I would know, I had a lesson about it...

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 zei Jacob was beautiful once of twice and called his new muscles impressive once of that she is jealous of his tan skin. She thinks Edward is too good for her because she looks plain volgende to him. She thinks Jacob is too...

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

Number 1: Someone tells u of 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 of not. He says she is the first one he dated, but then he talks of Tanya,...

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

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

Recently I came across a post at the forums that zei 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) love Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

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

I have been wondering for some time now about Bella's vulnerability, state of mind, and globaal, algemene 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 titel of my favourite character, but also the black hole that Bella...

Preface:
I have read all boeken and seen the movies.
Most importantly, the fact that it’s fantasy 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 of not the auteur of readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages about what is acceptable of admirable of desirable.
Also, I highly recommend link. It’s long, but fascinating and deeper than the boeken themselves....

OK, I know u guys are thinking: "What?! How dare you! Bella and Edward's love is the best and most romantic love 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 meer of it.
Picture this. Our great female lead is in an average high-school cafetaria, surrounded door average, high school kids. It's noisy and loud, and she wishes she was...

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...

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

"Bella zwaan-, zwaan 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 of social conscience.
-American Heritage Dictionary of Cultural Literacy:
Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal....

So I was originally going to publiceer this artikel in the boeken to Read spot, but then found this place, and I think it fits in here much better :) Anywho, this is an opinion artikel 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 u haven’t heard of it. From the first publishing of that first book to the most recent perfume-bottle scandal, Twilight has permeated the very core of pop culture, not to mention high school conversation. No matter whether...

Hi there! This is my first artikel on the C.A.T spot, about my least favoriete character in twilight. Actually, my least favoriete character in history.

Bella Swan.

I seriously can't see why so many twilight fans like her. She is zei 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...

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 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...

For people who were expecting this artikel 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 u can obviously see from the title) is about Stephanie Meyer. Oh yes, I'm pretty sure you've heard of her. The auteur of the Twilight Saga and the Host, she's pretty much one of the most populair writers at this point. Why?
I really don't know.
The lijst of reasons

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

Okay, i decided to write a critical analysis of a character from the twilight series. My first choice would have been to do one on Bella Swan, but there is already a whole spot dedicated to that, so i decided on my seconde choice: Edward Cullen. So I hauled out all my Twilight boeken and combed through them, analyzing and taking notes. Please leave a commentaar on my critical analysis telling me what u think, what u agree on and what u disagree on. Please no nasty comments. Enjoy!

Okay, number one...one of the reasons Twilight is so dramatic and sometimes just plain depressing is because...

The Harry Potter vs Twilight war is a huge phenomenon in the literary world. We have artikels floating around in the Internet (even in CAT) where both camps vehemently defend their fandoms. I am a huge Harry Potter fan, but today, I am not going to take sides. How it started, and how it evolved in a full-scale clash between fans of both series is something I would cover in this article.

It started off with a few websites claiming Twilight is the new Harry Potter. Harry Potter fans, of course, would not take it sitting down, and they wrote artikels with reasons why Harry Potter is better than...
