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....

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,...

{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....

I would like to note that anne rijst wrote the entire series before Meyer in case any idea's that anne stal 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 door vampires but they prefer human blood in Interview with a Vampire AND Twilight soon followed this way

3. The Vampires 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...

I've talked about some of the things that crossed my mind when reading 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 u can call yourself a vegetarian if u don't eat things like people of those monkeys who know sign language?"
But those are valid thoughts that many people reading the boeken also thought (well, maybe not specifically...

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...

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...

Jacob: Let me call Bella.*dials Bella's number*
Operator: I am sorry. This person is talking to (Bella's voice)Edward Cullen. Please leave a message after the tone.
*tone never comes up*
Jacob: OH C'MON!

The volgende day.

Jacob: I want Bella NAO!*calls Bella*
(Answering machine): The Swans are out right now, please leave a message after the beep.
[beep never stops]
Jacob: OH C'MON!

The dag after that:

Bella: *makes a new answering machine*
Jacob: *calls*
[Machine]: Hi, its Bella. If its Jacob, stop leaving messages saying "OH C'MON!" and if your not a Cullen of my dad, don't call me. At ALL!
*beep*
Jacob: NOOOOOO!

Jacob: ?

Lately, I've heard and seen jokes and commentaren about Edward being "pathetic" of "gay" because he was a 100 jaar old virgin. I've written this artikel 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...

Okay most of the Twilight- Haters would say that Edward is too old for Bella and that make him paedophile but I don't think so (not only because I am twilight fan) is because that Edward is literally 17 and he feels and thinks as a 17 jaar old. I mean take someone u know is really smart that doesnt mean they are have lived any longer than u have they just learnt meer in the years they have lived. I bet u they still act their age.
To be quite honest I know a programme that is aired in India as well as here where the Guy is at least 55 years old with 5 kids three of them older than the girl...

Disclaimer: The titel of the artikel may seem to be a bit strange, as most of my artikels that I have geplaatst 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 lijst my top, boven 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...

We have a discussion on the forums 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...

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 auteur - 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 globaal, algemene writing 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 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...

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...
