About her power
[ Yes, she has immunity which is a big advantage, but is that her only power? doesn't she get anything cool like knowing when Edward needs help or something? But that's kind of like the werewolves pack mind... It seems all the sweet powers have been taken lol. those are interesting ideas KuramaStrassCullen, but now you've gotten me wondering, will her clumsiness be cured? Overall Bella is the main character so that makes me assume Stephanie Meyer will whip out some sort of cool superpower she stored away for Bella... Or at least I'm hoping! ]

Oh wow, that would be a plot twister. What do you think about if Bella was a werewolf AND a vampire?

and also another question I've been thinking of is, how is Bella going to smell, especially to Edward?

You are my hero. I feel exactly the same. I own Twilight (what a waste of $17.99) and after taking some time to think about it, I have come up with these conclusions.

1) Bella is a crappy protagonist. She allows people to tell her what to do and when to do it. If Edward tells her to jump, she jumps. Its absolutely pathetic. Its like she has no other hobbies besides being Edward's girl friend and that's extremely disturbing, especially if you see girls like this in real life, in your high school. When you realize that, Bella doesn't seem so cool anymore. She's passive, stupid, and a mary sue.

2) Edward is an abusive boyfriend. Okay fangirls, just hear me out. I used to like Edward too at first, until I realized somethings. He treats Bella like a five year old. Whenever she wants to do something he doesn't like, he bullies her or uses physical force to make her do what he wants her to do. Edward doesn't allow Bella to have her own friends (Jacob, the werewolves), doesn't respect her wishes (sending in college appilcations she doesn't want, bribing schools to let her in, forcing her to marry him for sex, etc), and is just so controling. I don't find any of these things attractive in a man. He's abusive.

3) Stephanie Meyer can't write. She really does not know how to write. There are people on FictionPress.com who have more skills than she does. How she got published, I do not know, but her books are just commerical fiction, made to make money from love deprived teenage girls who've never been kissed before. Stephanie makes so many major fiction writing mistakes (Edward is unrealistically perfect (I don't care if he's a vampire, he's not God), Bella's a mary sue, she gets her plots all messed up, rushes in her writing to finish up her books, etc) and I cannot see how any self respecting reader would continue to read her books.

PS The Host is a rewrite of Twilight, just aliens instead of vampires. Way to be creative. <img src='/images/emoticons/smiley2.png'>

PSS I love 'Interview With the Vampire'. That's a good vampire novel.

The Vampire Chronicles had SEVERAL movies come up, stupid. Interview with the Vampire was probably the best one, starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Braderas, and Kristan Dunst. It was a good movie, but it was also R, which might be why you've never seen it if you're not old enough to see R rated movies.

And Lestat does PWN Edward any day of the week. He rocks. <img src='/images/emoticons/smiley8.png'>

You don't need to call people stupid for getting something wrong. Holy crap, everyone makes mistakes.

And as for your first post, you have a good point with your first 2 arguments, especially the first one because I also think Bella is stupid, but I enjoy the series despite this. Though in New Moon she did dangerous things just to hear Edward's voice and in Eclipse she did rebel against him at times and demand her own way when Edward was being too pushy. And at first Edward in Eclipse was like, "I won't allow you to see the werewolves" and being really annoying that way, but eventually he lets her. So I see where you're coming from with those arguments, but it's not wholly true.

I also never actually saw Edward as being perfect because I recognized the mistakes he made even in Twilight, which is why it bothered me to no end every time Bella referred to him as Adonis or god-like. I know it's important for her to have that disillusion in the narration, but it was still annoying. Interestingly enough, she stops saying that stuff during Eclipse. She must not see him that way anymore, which is good, definitely an improvement on her part.

It's the third part of your argument that bothers me. Just because you personally don't like her writing style, it doesn't mean, "She can't write." She has her own personal writing style and that's what matters, period. You can't say someone can't write just because you don't like the style. Now, I would understand your point if she had no style at all, but she does. It may not be the most complex or beautiful style in the universe, but it's an easy light-hearted flow through the pages that is kind of refreshing sometimes if you're tired of reading something too adult or complicated. I didn't used to like it either, but I eventually got used to it and grew to like it. It's not something I probably should model completely after or anything, but it's fun to read nonetheless, in my opinion.

I can understand this one, but maybe she's just writing a good chunk every day, plus had the whole series all planned out from the beginning.

Fine then, you don't have to understand, but I will finish Eclipse and buy Breaking Dawn. Doesn't mean that you have to be snobby about it. Just because you don't like the series, that doesn't mean that it should be canon law that her books are crap and anyone who reads them isn't a self-respecting reader.

I am a book snob. Stephanie Meyer's writing style is not that great, despite what countless pre-teen girls say about her silly books (the reason why I'm so hostile towards it). I think there are far better writers out there that deserve some credit for their work, even some unpublished writers. Have you ever been on fictionpress.com? S.J.Maas who wrote Queen of Glass is an extremely talented writer who deserves to be published and admired, not someone like Stephanie Meyer. I'd buy a book from S.J.Maas without even looking at the summary before wasting my money on another 'romance' book from Meyer.

You'd probably love S.J.Maas. You should check her out.

I mean, to me, that just screams "asshole".

And, sure, you may think The Vampire Chronicles is better than Twilight, but tell me: does The Vampire Chronicles have a movie coming out?

---------------------
Wow. Language, much? I am no such thing. I'm simply sick of how Edward seems to have no flaws whatsoever. It's like he's saying, "Oh, look at me. I'm the best thing ever and I'm sexier than everyone. Heck, I think I'm the freaking posterboy for sexiness. Also, since I'm perfect in every way, I have hordes of brainless fans who know nothing about the various laws of logic I defy on a regular basis."

Oh, and the movies have already come out. Years ago, I believe. I know for a fact that Interview with a Vampire has come out in movie form, as well as Queen of the Damned. That's at least two movies already out, whereas Twilight has yet to hit theaters. So, again, I say PWNED.

I am not a teenager and I enjoy...ed until I realized that edward was abusive. I agree with your first two points. I am only going to read the last book if jacob wins, man I love that boy.

Normally, I am anti any book that glamorizes vampires, I like mine nitty-gritty, like Hellsing.

I've been there, and I have read some decent stuff. I'm registered on there and posted a few things but nothing much really.

But I think that if these people are that good, they should go out and publish their stories. I am aware of the fact that it's hard to find a publisher that will accept your book (unless you're lucky like Christopher Paolini, whose parents OWN a publishing company...) but if you say that it's better than Twilight then someone will probably accept it.

As for Edward, am I the only person here who doesn't think Edward is perfect? He comes across that way to Bella in the first 2 books, which kind of irritated me, because I couldn't see him as having the body of Adonis or a velvet voice. Plus he also made mistakes, granted he admits to them eventually, but the fact that he made mistakes in the first place shows his imperfection, his human side, if you will.

And I really do like Jacob, but I don't think he should have Bella in the end. Right now I'm about 75% into Eclipse and he did a few things to her that were also pretty abusive, just in a more forceful manner rather than a kidnapping manner.

I actually have a friend who loves this series, but hates Bella, Jacob, and Edward. So I dunno how she loves it so much, lol. The other characters must make up for it.

Edward doesn't think he's perfect, though. He hates himself, he think's he's a monster who's ruining Bella's life. He knows he's attractive, sure, but he doesn't like that fact, because it contributes to Bella's obsession with him. Being absolutely perfect but hating himself for it, unfortunately, makes him a Gary Stu.

I agree that Bella is somewhat of a Mary Sue in many aspects (as AllisonWalker said). She has her flaws though, such as her clumsiness and the fact that she is manipulated so easily (though it's hard not to be manipulated by Edward and the other vampires, as they have super-persuasion powers from being vampires [piercing eyes, scent that makes it hard to think, etc.]). This doesn't make him abusive. He's controlling, yes, but he's just trying to keep Bella alive.

I happen to really love Twilight, although I found Bella annoyingly whiny and complain-y by the end of Eclipse. I don't wish to marry Edward, (although I wouldn't say no to a guy who looks like him, plays beautiful piano/writes music for me, and quotes Romeo and Juliet in my ear, but then who would :P), and I wouldn't give away my soul for him. I do think that Stephenie writes well (except that first chapter of Breaking Dawn is really...not great), and despite the fact that her main characters (and some of the supporting characters) are rather generic, she wove a good story around them and made people love them. Except Bella. Not many people like her much after said excessive whining in Eclipse. Some writers can have Mary Sues and Gary Stus as characters and make them work.

As for The Host, I don't think it was too Twilight-esque. Jared (the main guy, for those who haven't read it) isn't terribly generic and is obviously not perfect, and Melanie/Wanderer are very different from Bella - Melanie has a temper and Wanderer has a very etheral feel. The characters and their roles are different, and I personally found the story very unique (though I don't read sci-fi).

Absolutely, I completely agree. Edward gets boring and I stopped being obsessed when he started being all like, "You can't visit the werewolves because I won't be able to know what's going on." Even after he changed his mind and stopped being annoying like that, I just decided that I wasn't obsessed with him anymore; I still like him but it's not quite the same.
Quote:

I always felt that way too. But I always let it slide because she wasn't annoying in that she had some Mary Sue qualities; I think it worked well with the story and her Sueism was more subtle in that you have to be more familiar with the characteristics of a Mary Sue in order to understand that she is one. She is, for the most part, a normal girl, and that's all that really matters IMO.
Quote:

I don't think I ever really liked Bella. I just thought she was stupid most of the time so some of her actions just make me want to slam my head into the book, lol. I haven't gotten to the end of Eclipse yet, but it really doesn't surprise me that she turned all whiny.
Not a whole lot of people like Jacob either, which is sad because I find him more sympathetic and human than Bella. Yeah he does a few things that make me want to punch him in the face, but still, he's not like Satan-incarnate or anything the way that a lot of Edward fangirls portray him as. :/
Quote:

Exactly. Not every Mary Sue or Gary Stu is a bad character. It just depends in what ways make them Sueish and how that gets integrated in the story.

Stephanie Meyer's characters are all too boring for me. I don't think they work well enough, standing alone without their supporting cast.

I actually sort of like Jacob. He may be an asshole at times, but hey, that's exactly how teenage boys are. People need to get over it, guys aren't perfect.

Jacob is pretty great. The hardcore Edward fangirls are really stupid, they're always all "omgzzz we need to kill Jacob", and it's not like he did anything that deserves him such hatred. He IS an asshole a lot of the time, but hey, Edward was being an asshole when he wasn't letting Bella go to La Push. I do like him as a character though, he's the most real and believable character in the book (minus the werewolf factor obviously). I feel so bad for him though, I do hope he's happy in the end.

But Edward was being like that because he knows Jacob could go crazy and hurt Bella. He only did it for her safety. Jacob was being a total a-hole and didn't like Bella being with Edward because he loves her and hates Edward just for the simple fact that he's a vampire, depite the fact Edward made the first move for them two to becaome friends. That's why Jacob is a jerk and nobody likes him. He is ok sometimes, but he changed too much.

Jacob was also born and raised with that bias, and he's still a teenager just now learning that they're not all so bad. I mean he didn't always believe the stuff that was said until he actually became a werewolf, but he was still born and raised with it and it all just hit him in the face at fact. Plus it doesn't help that a vampire stole the girl he liked either.

He should just imprint on someone else. I hope that happens; he doesn't deserve to die.
He's not even the freaking villain and people want him to die more than Victoria. I mean geez, where are your priorities?

I'm only on chapter 21 of Eclipse so if something does happen to Victoria after all DON'T CORRECT ME PLEASE. <img src='/images/emoticons/smiley3.png'>

I won't. It's pretty good.
Also, he wasn't born and raised exactly biased. His dad tried to do that, but Jacob never believed in the whole werewolf and vampire thing. And then he had to be biased against the Cullens when he transformed for the first time, because they were mortal enemies. But, I certainly agree that he shouldn't die. I hope he will imprinted on somebody.

I <3 Twilight!

I was going to post big-time on my love of vampires, and especially Twilight vampires, but I don't think I will.

I do adore Anne Rice too, actually, though. They're a completely different level, a completely different place. I can very easily understand how someone who likes them wouldn't like Twilight, and, to a lesser extent, vice versa. But Twilight is what I use when I want to get a teenage girl to start reading books. :P It works like a charm.

And Twilight is better than that Bratfest at Tiffany's shit, or whatever the crap some of these girls are supposedly reading.
Twilight is very symbolic at parts, so it's a good introduction to that kind of literature as well; it would probably help with what they have to learn in English class as well, and show them that symbolism isn't just some accident for the most part either.
