I agree completely. In fact, if you carefully (or even superficially) analyze Twilight, you realize that Bella and Edward's relationship meets all the criteria of an abusive relationship. Controlling, manipulative, denying, preventing her from seeing her friends, hiding her, causing dependence, describing it as "for her own good", etc. Textbook abuse.

you make some good points here
But personally, in regards to your storywriting you add way too many metaphors and adjectives.
They get annoying, and some aren't that appealing, anyways. It reminds me of 'Fifty Shades of Gray'
Also, you have several run-on sentences. It would flow better if you broke it up more.
And why do you need three paragraphs to describe what she feels when Edward glares at her?
| Molasses Rose chapter 1 . 6/12/2012
I completely agree.
Let me admit, I read them, and I loved it. Then I read it again, it was at this point I began seeing every single flaw. Normally when I read things, I read fast and I don't pay much attention to detail. Then when I read it again I pick up on things I missed. Like how Bella is a flat character.
And I also completely agree with your closing statement, if crap like that could get published I don't see why mine can't.

Maybe if you actually read a book, instead of over-analyzing it, you might actually enjoy something. From what you've written, it gives me clear recognition of the fact that everything has to be perfect in your world for to enjoy it. Well, newsflash, life isn't perfect.
On the whole sex thing, of course they are not going to do anything more than kiss. It's a teen novel. Do you expect them to just rip their clothes off and have sex right on the ground? And how do you know women want to be raped, or that Edward has a rape fantasy, or that Twilight is 'suggesting' sexual denial? everyone denies themselves of some sort of sexuality. If you see some one and think 'it'd be nice to kiss them' should you just run over and kiss them, no matter what they say? oh, but that'd be wrong, So of course, you have to deny yourself that. And edward is seventeen. He's been seventeen for 80 years. If you don't have enough imagination to comprehend this, then you have no business reading whatsoever.
And what gives you the right to talk about love? Are you Stephenie Meyer? Were you there when she wrote the books? No? Didn't think so. Then what gives you the right to say that their 'love' is not real, and based solely on a crush? Oh wait, that's right, no imagination.
Stephanie Meyer got her books published because she got a publisher, and they said yes. Maybe all those other people didn't get published because their ideas either sucked, or they didn't go to the right publisher.
Oh, and this website is called FANFICTION. In case you didn't know, that means it's not a place for you to review a book or state your opinin in an over-analyzing and stupid story, that isn't even a story. It's just a bunch of nonsense. If you want to 'review' a book, go to it's actual website.
And we all know you only put this up here so that you could find a reviewer who agrees with you, which is stupid, by the way.
And saying that the world is going in a trashy direction, just because people like something you don't like, is immature and wrong. If you didn't like Coke, and the rest of the world did, does that make the world trashy? Clearly you can see the flaws in your reasoning.
Just get some imagination and clearer reasoning before you automatically call out a book on being 'rape filled, sexually denying, stuck up, trashy and stupid'.

You are sooooo right (:

Finally someone answers my questions and why this book was even made and what is the point. I liked this!
| ChameleonArch chapter 1 . 12/13/2011
You're are probably the only male I have ever agreed with over Twilight. Which is sad as I go to a Christian private school. I've read excerpts of this book and all I find is trashy written nonsense about glittery vamps and brainwashed young girls who fall in love with undead monsters. Whenever someone brought up Twilight, I used my limited knowledge to say I was on Team Victoria cuz she hated everybody. ('Least, that's what I've heard.) Thank you for joining the sane side in this lame Fantasy war of Real Fantasy (Stoker and Van Helsing) vs Crap Fantasy (Meyer and the rest of her little hobgoblins)

Beyond the flatness of her persona she is given no truly human characteristics. Such as if she were to be made into a more three-dimensional character, the author would have taken time to put in memories of why this character got the way that she is, which is a talent that is more aptly done by novelist Stephen King as well as J.K. Rowling.
WIN. Thank you! This is so true and even obsessed Twilight fans cannot deny this. I read all the books too and all of them had major holes in the character development.
| Ani Hanki DaZe chapter 1 . 7/19/2011
I dont get it too! I mean! Ed is a stalker no 'true love'! Its what you call it pedophile or something. Bella is a mary sue! A *****selfish and so is every one else the only good characters are Alice (but she is GAY) aand JAcob. I agree with everything my fellow twilight hater. Please fangirls dont flame me , but Twilight is crap!

I may be a Twilight Fan (mostly of the wolft pack not the Cullens) but that doesn't mean I'm going to deny all the points you've made. And the fact that you are able to use logic and reason to try to uncover what is so appealing impresses me since most of the others who are baffled by this phenomena are quick to judge, label and 'hate' the series for no other reason then because too many people like it.
But I think that your view of all Twilight fans is mostly focused on the fanatical group of pre-teen girls whose reactions to Twilight are melodramatic and somewhat embarrassing to the other fans out there.
You have to understand that although the books are simply-written (compared to other books), has ideals that are questionable, and contains relationships that world not work in real life. It has one goal that women(and girls) secretly yearn for: the idea of love. Every female strives to find that one person they can depend on, comforted by, and be with for the majority of your life. With divorces reaching an all-time high and fear of growing old alone, it's no wonder young girls have latched on to centuries old ideal of a knight in shining armor or Prince Charming in Edward Cullen. He does, after all, meet most of the requirements and gives hope to females that yes, they can meet the love of their life and have a happily ever after. After all, these books are essentially fairytale stories.
Another obvious observation I wanted to point out to you is that Twilight and the characters inside of it is also just the current trend: that people like to consume themselves in just to have fun. Every generation has had one in their teen years, favorite movie, favorite topic, style, actor, celebrity cruch, etc. 15 years from now most of us will likely forget about Twilight or only view it as part of phase in childhood.
Thank you for this insightful fanfiction.

Thank you, for being some one who says something about this and can provide evidence and support. I use to really like this series, but after reading it and looking back I begun to nice it's flaws, some miner, but some just unreasonable that made no sense despide being fiction, like the sparkling, and how the main character reacted to some things. Im happy that when you wrote this you put examples of something that you would do if you did the novel. And in addition you took behaviors and phycology into account.
Thank you for using common sense, reasoning and logic.
I found a mistake:
(except for Rosalie; the vampire who can see the future)
Rosalie cannot see the future, that is another character, but she does dislike Bella.

Just because I like Twilight doesn't mean I don't agree with most of what you've said. As a good friend of mine once explained it, the appeal of the series lies not in how realistic it may or may not be, but in the fact that it is so simple that one can just sit down, read it, and be pointlessly entertained for a few hours. It's kind of like watching a marathon of Boomerang channel shows.

I love you.
