I’m a fan of Twilight. It’s intriguing. I just hate Bella and Edward as u can see from my first blog post. I was watching it the other day as came across a few plot holes that really bother me.
I understand that there aren’t very many vampires in the world. But since they’re pretty much invincible, why don’t they just take over the world and treat us like cattle? No one can stop them except the wolves and I doubt there are enough of them to make a difference.
If u have unlimited power, why would u spend eternity going to high school over and over? The only person saving lives is Carlisle. The rest of them need to make themselves useful instead of sitting in school year after year.
Why doesn’t Bella want to marry Edward? She’s willing to spend eternity with him as a vampire but a wedding ceremony is going too far? Who cares if people think she got knocked up! Her plan was to move away until she was no longer consumed with the newborn thirst. It shouldn’t be an issue.
What bothers me the most is that Bella never had to make a single sacrifice when faced with the decision to become a vampire and be with Edward forever. She was supposed to choose between being with him and never being able to see her family again. She wasn’t supposed to be able to have children. She has to deal with the bloodlust and spend years developing self control so she won’t slaughter a small town. Does she face any of these conflicts? NOPE! She has a kid. She has the self control of a 100 year old vampire. And she was still associating with her family. None of the Cullens seem to really LIKE being vampires but Bella LOVES it. Makes me wonder why the Cullens are so depressed about being vampires. Everything is perfect for her. She never sacrificed. The ending was too perfect and happy, which is kind of boring. About the only thing that Bella had to give up was the ability to sleep. And who cares about that since she can just fuck Edward when she has spare time. I think their love would seem less superficial and obsessive if Bella actually made a sacrifice at some point. Let’s remember that they only knew each other for about a year.
Ok I’m done. For now.
I agree 100%!
Sooo I used to love Twilight and was one of those super obsessed fans who thought it was the best thing since masturbation. I started reading out of pure curiosity. I saw the movie and didn’t have shit to do so I decided to read the books. Awhile later, I had a bad break-up and was super obsessed with the fictional and unrealistic Edward Cullen. My GROWN ass thought that men like that existed. Now that I think about it, good thing they don’t. If my man glitters, he needs to leave my bedroom immediately. So here’s some shit about the series that I hated. (Spoilers). Oh, and ignore typos cuz I’m not going back to fix the shit.
Why the fuck did they have a baby in Breaking Dawn??? The explanation for this was ridiculous. Some shit about how human men can have kids when they’re 80 so they don’t need to “change” in order to impregnate someone. Since Edward is frozen as a 17 yr old, he has super sperm that has survived for over a hundred years…*side eye*
Some of this has been said before by other people but the 2 most interesting characters are Alice and Jasper in my opinion. I feel like they have no character development. Alice is small hyper and seems to only care about shopping and dressing stupid ass Bella up. I know there’s more to her than this. No one seems to care that she has no idea bout her past. It would be nice to know something other than James tried to eat her when she was in the insane asylum as a human. We also know that Jasper was in the southern vamp wars or whatever the fuck u wanna call them. Jasper fought for the confederacy in the Civil War as a human and probably supported slavery. I know, I went off on a tangent. Anyway, we know how he made it to the Cullens kinda. But it would be nice to know details. We also know nothing of his personality except that he’s a fierce fighter and is temped to slaughter everyone within a 1 mile radius.
The other characters are 1 dimensional. There’s the excuse of vampires being how they were as humans…so unless they were 1 dimensional back then, there’s no reason they should still be. Edward hates himself. Rosalie is a conceited bitch (although I like her cuz she hates stupid ass Bella). Emmett is cool but he’s just the immature big brother that u love but sometimes annoys u. Carlisle is the good doctor with not a bad thought in his mind. And Idk know who the fuck Esme is. She was pointless to the story.
Why the fuck does Bella’s dumbass dad fall for these transparent lies of why she’s spending the weekend with Alice. Who is her bf’s sister. He must have wanted his daughter to get pregnant cuz I would have not allowed that. I also don’t understand why her father put up with her in New Moon. I would have forced her to see a therapist since she was acting like her whole family was slaughtered in front of her face. And she would be punished FOREVER if she left the house and Edward would not be let in under and circumstances. I wouldn’t give a shit about her threat to move out. She could pack her shit and leave cuz she don’t pay no fuckin bills and can’t dictate who comes in and out the house.
The whole family is basically making themselves miserable. I wouldn’t want to keep moving and trying to blend in with human. Why? What’s the point? If u make friends, they will eventually die unless u change them. Eating animals is all fine and dandy but I would refuse to go to high school over and over.
Why did they take so long to have sex? Ur a vampire. U have nothing to do so why not have sex. Bella took forever before she realized sex existed and Edward came off as gay the way he wouldn’t do shit with her. Chaste kisses are fine for awhile but if ur gonna sleep in my bed, we’re gonna have to go a lil further than that eventually. They always talk about how ice cold Edward is so it’s probably like fucking a Popsicle anyway.
Jacob is probably the most realistic character in the series. I just hated how he was constantly after stupid ass Bella. The wolf pack in general was interesting. They were the only bit of ethnicity in the whole story. Almost everyone is white. What about other races? The only black person was the guy in the ghetto when Bella was looking for J. Jenks. I guess the 3 Amazon vamps were black. Maybe Nahuel. But other than that, all Lilly white. They had to make Laurent black in the movie or else there would have been protests. Classic Racism.
Now for the main characters. I’m bout to go in on them. Edward. He’s gorgeous. Fabulous. So what else is there about him? He can read minds. That’s cool. All he does is sulk and bitch about how he’s a monster. Go kill yourself. Edward shows many characteristics of an abusive boyfriend who hasn’t reached the stage of beating his woman’s ass yet. He’s controlling. EVERYTHING is too fuckin dangerous for Bella. If she goes to take a shit, she might fall head first into the toilet and drown. He fucked up her car so she couldn’t see Jacob. He’s too possessive. He wants to murder anyone who even looks at stupid ass Bella. He doesn’t respect any decision she makes. She didn’t wanna go to Dartmouth and he applied for her. She didn’t want a party and he threw her one anyway. He makes Alice kidnap her so she will be “safe.” She didn’t wanna go to prom and he tricked her into going. The only thing she made a decision on was keeping the baby. And that was only cuz Rosalie was protecting her. If not for that, Renesmee would have been aborted. He also isolates her in his own way. The friendships she had at school went to hell when she got with Edward and he made a comment about how her friends were shallow or some shit. He also made his WHOLE family move cuz of an incident. Idk why the fuck they listened to him. Alice was Bella’s best friend and he would not allow her to contact Bella. His tried to commit suicide. Need I say more. AND he watches her sleep like a weirdo. Besides, no matter how young he looks, Edward Cullen is like 109. It’s gross.
I could go in on Bella all day. Bella is an awkward person who sucks and life. She can’t stand without falling. She has a disorder. She has no goals or aspirations and only cares about being with Edward. She doesn’t seem to care that she can’t see her family once she becomes a vampire. She’s too busy eating Edward’s nuts. She strings along Jacob forever claiming he’s her bff, even kisses him. Then says “just kidding, I only want my senior citizen Edward.” She has no friends and doesn’t try to maintain the bullshit friendships she has. When Edward left in New Moon, she as miserable b/c she had no one to talk to or make her feel better. When he came back, she was even more clingy than before b/c Edward is the only person in her life. There’s nothing to like about Bella. She’s not a spectacular person. Just boring and plain. She has absolutely no personality. Can anyone tell me anything about Bella besides the fact that she likes to read Wuthering Heights? Yet everyone is intrigued by her. Edward was probably just happy to find a bitch who’s mind he couldn’t read. The Volturi should have killed her in New Moon. Ppl spend too much time to protect stupid ass Bella. Let the bitch die.
I could sit here and think about a whole bunch of shit but I’ll wrap it up. I think I may not like the twilight saga as much anymore. It’s entertaining enough though. This is just some shit that bothers me.
I got a headache and a feeling that I’m not going to like road tripping with another person. :/
Moment That Pissed You Off
So, so, so many moments….but I’ll try to just pick one.
Smeyer has a Baby Focus Problem and it turned into my ragefuel. At first it’s really Rosalie who is bitter at her chance to become a mother. This seemed a legitimate character trait for her, and I could understand that. Bella doesn’t want kids and doesn’t care about giving it up, which is also fine because women are allowed to not want babies. But of course, Smeyer messes it all up. Leah starts getting development halfway through Breaking Dawn, and it’s all good and entertaining….but then Smeyer brings up babies. Again. I feel like this is just Rosalie all over agian. Leah’s dad died suddenly and she has no choice but to hang out with a pack of boys who dislike her, but the issue Smeyer chooses to harp on is the fact her uterus might be defective.
What does Bella get? A biological baby of her own who’s supposed to be perfect and cute! hurray! If you just get married and pop out an infant you’ll finally be happy!!! Bella gets everything in the end and never has to work or suffer because she turns out to be Empress of the Mary Sues!!!
I really want to know what SM is smoking.
Your weight is one thing. How you feel about it is another.
It’s easy to confuse losing weight with a boost of confidence/happiness, but one actually doesn’t CAUSE the other. They might happen simultaneously, but working on your head (and satisfaction with your body) is a whole other issue. If you’re not just as focused with trying to acheive body acceptance and doing more of what makes you happy, that body you want won’t mean much…even if you get it.
Don’t wrap up your happiness in your weight. You’ll never be satisfied. Believe it or not, you might get the body you want and still be unhappy (it’s fairly common). Don’t ignore everything else that makes you YOU. Those things end up being MORE important than what you look like at the end of the day, trust me.
Body love takes practice. Start with changing the way you talk about your body. Then surround yourself with body loving resources (unfollow blogs that promote body hate, especially those that mask it with health). Discourage negative body talk with those around you and don’t engage in it yourself. If you spend too much time picking yourself apart in the mirror, STOP.
It’s not cool to hate your body. Hating your body is NOT healthy. Work on changing the way you SEE your body, changing how you RELATE to it. View it as a vehicle and not an obstacle. Something you have to protect, not mold to unrealistic standards. Something that takes you places and not something that holds you back. Happiness and body satisfaction is in your head. It has little to do with your body, though making healthier choices is always a good thing.
If you have a blog try using it as a vehicle to promote body love. Put out into the world that which you are seeking, instead of letting it be a place for body hate to fester.
It takes practice, but trust me, it’s worth it. You can’t hate yourself healthy. OR happy.
Thin isn’t happy. Happy is happy.
i mean i think we can all agree…
things have gotten a little out of hand
So around 4 am I woke up extremely thirsty and kind of stumbled to the kitchen to get some water. But I became so dizzy I couldn’t formulate a coherent thought. I kept thinking that I really need to just get to some water-then I passed out. The next thing I know my room mate is shaking me trying to get me to go lie down because apparently I slammed my head into the counter and the door. after I went to lie down on the futon I immediately felt better and went back to bed thinking nothing of it. Well this morning I woke up feeling the same exact way as I felt at 4- head pounding, shaky, nauseous, dizzy. So so dizzy. When I almost passed out in the shower, I was like, OK- this is probably not good. When a shower doesn’t make you feel better, there is a problem. Emergency room it is. Anyway, so they gave me an EKG, some great migraine pain meds (I’m feelin’ pretty loopy as I type this), and lots of fluid. 5 hours later, the results are pretty inconclusive. Dehydration? But how? I pretty much down water and green tea all day. I’ve never passed out before in my life, never. So who in the sam hill knows anyway? Oy vey, I know I’m going to just crash shortly. Did I mention I don’t have health insurance? Fuck my life.
