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 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 лебедь 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 или social conscience.
-American Heritage Dictionary of Cultural Literacy:
Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal....

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

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

Recently I came across a post at the Форумы that сказал(-а) 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) Любовь Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

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 Автор - 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 в общем и целом, общая Письмо 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...

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...

The following is a letter from Edward to our CAT members who dislike him. или a joke quickly written by me because it's been ages since I Опубликовано here. Either way, it's not meant to offend pros или antis.

Dear antis,
So, I hear Ты hate me. Ouch. Being the emo....uh, I mean the sensitive, wait, the in-touch-with-his-emotions-in-a-not-girly-way, hey-shut-up! guy I am, my initial reaction was to kill myself. That's right, in one of my trademark, straight вперед suicide plans I was going to cover myself in honey, mail a note to the volturi threatening to poke them in the eye if they didn't...

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

Disclaimer: The Название of the Статья may seem to be a bit strange, as most of my Статьи that I have Опубликовано 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 Список my вверх 8. This will be in no particular order.

Jasper Hale

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...

I Опубликовано this a couple other spots, but I would really like to know anti-twilight/neutral Фаны opinions. I sort of ranted on the subject, but I think my intent is pretty clear. I'd Любовь to read Комментарии if Ты have any, или Ты can just skip this Статья :)

This is sort of an informal rant/observation.

We all know that New Moon is about tragedy and the loss of Любовь and the aftermath. Edward left Bella. But why did he leave her?

Since New Moon is being adapted into a feature length film, I've been seeing alot of Вопросы and accusations reguarding Edward's absense.

- Jacob's better...

We have a discussion on the Форумы 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...

First off, I would like to say that I have absolutely no problem with the C.A.T. spot and have just joined myself. If anything, I think that this spot is a good idea and is definitely NOT an anti-spot. The point of this Статья is to explain the point of view of a Twilight Фан that does not just like the series because Edward Cullen is SO HOTTT <333, Вампиры are AwEsOmE, etc. etc.

Let me start off by saying that I am SICK of uneducated Twilight Фаны making the rest of us look like a bunch of air-heads. By uneducated I mean Фаны that scream their heads off whenever they see a picture of Robert...
