Here is the third post out of a series of sixth wherein I write about something that bugs me about Twilight and its universe.
3. How Stephenie Meyer portrayed the Cullens who were not Edward or Alice
Every character in the Cullen family who is not Edward nor Alice were severely underused.
I would have loved to delve more into Jasper’s story since he is one of the most intriguing characters in the whole series. Born and bred in Texas, youngest major in the Confederate Army, Turned during the Civil War, fighting in the vampire wars under Maria’s command and meeting Peter and Charlotte.
Likewise Rosalie’s story is intriguing as well (if Stephenie Meyer had done her researched properly) – people were not rich when the banks cracked in the late 1920’s. The whole aspect of the expectations for young women to marry rich and well were very interesting.
Oh and Edward has morals that belongs in the Edwardian era. I know he was turned in the middle of the Spanish flue, but even Eric and Bill (from True Blood/The Southern Vampire Mysteries) updated their views on various subjects and never treated Sookie like a porcelain doll.
Stay tuned for the fourth part of the series.
Here is the second post out of a series of sixth wherein I write about something that bugs me about Twilight and its universe.
I actually do not like imprinting, but it’s a good plot devise since it creates trouble for the characters to no end. Just look at all the fanfictions where Jake and goes off the deep end because he do not get Bella. Stephenie Meyer established imprinting was supposed to be rare and yet there are five imprinted wolves out of ten. That is half the Pack.
I do not like, how Quil imprinted on a toddler nor how Jacob imprinted on the spawn of Bella and Edward. It is just not okay! Grown men imprinting on children. I know they can be whatever the imprintee needs, but no this does not sit well with me.
Jared imprinted on a girl he had never had a conversation with ever. That’s just plain weird.
Sam broke Leah’s heart when he imprinted on her cousin who came down. Emily came to La Push to help Leah get over her heartbreak, which Sam caused in the first place. I never liked how people moaned about how much of pain in the butt Leah was because of it. She cannot be angry that she lost the loved of her life without warning what so ever. Wouldn’t you be angry if you had to be in the head of your ex, who literary cannot stop thinking of the woman he imprinted on? I would be pissed if it were I. To make matters worse she is the only character who does not get a happy ending in the books.
Paul imprinted on Rachel Black who was home to visit Billy and Jacob. Suddenly she is expected to give up her dreams because Paul cannot leave the reservation.
The only saving grave in this mess is that we did not get a front row seat to see Embry, Seth, Collin nor Brady imprint.
Stay tuned for the third part in the series.
Here is the first post out of a series of sixth wherein I write about something that bugs me about Twilight and its universe.
1. How Stephenie Meyer chose to portray the human characters (Bella’s friends from Forks and Charlie)
The humans were screwed over by Stephenie Meyer in the books.
Most people dislikes Mike for acting and behaving like a teenage boy in the contrary to Edward and to a lesser extent Jacob. Mike is just acting like a normal teenage boy with hormones raging and so on. It took the cake when Bella compared him to a Labrador! I would take Mike any day over misters too cold and too hot.
Charlie becomes a jerk in Eclipse, when he high-fived Jake after the latter forced himself upon Bella. In the previous books, he had been an upstanding and patient father. Bella acted like a brat at times and I’m surprised she got off pretty easy after her adventures in Phoenix and Volterra.
Stay tuned for the second part in the series.
