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

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

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

Recently I came across a post at the forum that detto 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) Amore Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

Credit to _lina_ and cinders, because they did it first. più credit to link because that's where this is from. _lina_ used the same one.

------------

Number 1: Someone tells te o he admits that he has hit women in the past. He has talked about his killing sprees, he has killed another woman (Yes, she is a vampire. Who cares?) in front of her. Check!

Number 2: He refers to all women he has dated in the past with derogatory terms. He may also refer to his mother using such terms as well. Not sure about checking this one o not. He says she is the first one he dated, but then he talks of Tanya,...

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 fanfiction.net 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...

Hi there! This is my first articolo on the C.A.T spot, about my least preferito character in twilight. Actually, my least preferito character in history.

Bella Swan.

I seriously can't see why so many twilight fan like her. She is detto to be selfless, caring, understanding, and a good role model...when really she's the most selfish character in the whole book series.
Now then, here are several reasons why I dislike Bella.

1) Lack outside of Edward

Has Bella -even once- mentioned in any of the novels what she wanst to do with her life? (Besides wanting to be a vampire to be with Edward forever) Not...

So I was originally going to pubblica this articolo in the libri to Read spot, but then found this place, and I think it fits in here much better :) Anywho, this is an opinion articolo I originally wrote for my school newspaper. Yes, it's a bit of a rant, but I don't mean to be offensive, so please don't take it that way. Enjoy :)

--------------------------

There’s no way te haven’t heard of it. From the first publishing of that first book to the most recente perfume-bottle scandal, Twilight has permeated the very core of pop culture, not to mention high school conversation. No matter whether...

Okay, so I just wrote an articolo called "Bella Swan: A Rant", and it seems a lot people liked it, which mad me glad! But I've deicided to write an articolo about Jacob Black, one of the most loved, yet hated characters in the twilight saga
--

Now, what I don't get is why so many people (Especially Edward lovers) hate the guy so much. Okay, yes, he can be selfish, but he was so kind and sweet in New Moon to Bella. He helped her when no one else could, and started to make her smile and laugh again. I really loved him in New Moon(more than Edward, that's for sure.) And to say I was ticked off when...

We have a discussion on the forum 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...

{edited, added some stuff, just an informal consideration of a few of the arguments that support the accusation}

"Bella cigno 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 o social conscience.
-American Heritage Dictionary of Cultural Literacy:
Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal....

I would like to note that anne riso wrote the entire series before Meyer in case any idea's that anne ha rubato, stola it from stephanie __________________________________________________



1. The character louis thinks he deserves to be in hell....hmmmm sound familar to another vampire?Edward perhaps

2.Animal Blood can be drank da Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. but they prefer human blood in Interview with a Vampire AND Twilight soon followed this way

3. The Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. skin dazzles humans apparently....Which is a lot like the sparkling skin that the cullens posess

4. There are immortal children in both of the books. The unnamed children...

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 baciare 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...

OK, this is my very first articolo - I have never written an articolo for fanpop before. It's a poor excuse if this turns out to be the poorest articolo ever submitted, but I'm going to use it anyway... please go easy on me xD. This is LONG, so orso with me, I appreciate it!

I have been wondering for some time now about Bella's vulnerability, state of mind, and complessivamente, generale mental well-being. New Moon, in the beginning, was my favourite book of the series, for two reasons: Jacob Black was instantly likeable and interesting, winning the titolo of my favourite character, but also the black hole that Bella...

I’ve read many lists pointing out Twilight “Plot Holes”, but più often than not, the lists aren’t very valid at all. Half of them are usually just complaints, pointing out something they don’t like about Twilight (Example:” Why would Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. go to high school?”, o “Why does Bella have so many friends?”). The rest are just factually incorrect, o can be logically theorized. These are usually followed da “Stephenie Meyer obviously ditched history class”, o “Hasn’t Stephenie ever heard of logic?”, o my personal favorite, “I would know, I had a lesson about it...

OK, I know te guys are thinking: "What?! How dare you! Bella and Edward's Amore is the best and most romantic Amore of all times!111Elevntyone!!!1" And then, you're going to say I'm just some guy who hasn't read the books. I'm not. I'm a teenage girl, and I have read all the books. Even Bree Tanner and that bit of Midnight Sun on Meyer's website.

I'll just discuss the reasons why it's not true love.

Physical Attraction
...And più of it.
Picture this. Our great female lead is in an average high-school cafetaria, surrounded da average, high school kids. It's noisy and loud, and she wishes she was...

If te have ever doubted the insanity of the C.A.T. Kittens, this will cease your doubts. I think it got long enough to be put into articolo forum thread. This makes absolutely no sense, does have swearwords, includes lots exremely odd things, and is kind of innapropriate. You've been warned.

~~~~

One giorno Bella fell over while being chased da Steve the Spider, while Edward and Jacob were kissing. Pausing every once in a while to get a dazzling breath when Alice walked in on them and detto - "Edward, what are te doing? te know Bella is over there. Wait...you're GAY?"

"Yes, but don't tell Bella...

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 autore - 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 complessivamente, generale Scrivere 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...

For people who were expecting this articolo to be earlier, really sorry about that! But I've been getting ready for school(WAH!), so...you get the point.

So, this article(as te can obviously see from the title) is about Stephanie Meyer. Oh yes, I'm pretty sure you've heard of her. The autore of the Twilight Saga and the Host, she's pretty much one of the most popolare writers at this point. Why?
I really don't know.
The lista of reasons

1)Her writing
Okay, even back when I was a mega fan of twilight(bows head in shame), I never liked the writing. Its just..not good. Hard to explain really. Now reading...

I am totally ignoring Breaking Dawn in this because Stephenie Meyer broke all the rules in there. [Vampires cant have children, they have no body fluids, etc etc]
Reasons i think Jacob is better for Bella than Edward is:
1. Edward/Bellas relationship is based on appearance. She is constantly talking about how good he looks, how velvety his voice is, how graceful he is, etc. She detto Jacob was beautiful once o twice and called his new muscles impressive once o that she is jealous of his tan skin. She thinks Edward is too good for her because she looks plain successivo to him. She thinks Jacob is too...

I'm just sayin' Bella is one of the worst role modelle ever when it comes to love, sex and life choices and should not have allowed to be published in any shape o form. I mean, when she's made the heroine of the story and marketted at teenage girls.

1. She's obsessively in Amore with a control freak stalker.

Unfortunately it seems the vast majority of the Twilight fangirls are too with the very same freak.

2. She wants him so bad that she'll abandone everyone else she loves so that she could be with him. Even when it means she'll practically have to become a blood-drinking corpse.

(The movie 'Eclipse'...

This articolo is not meant to offend. It is mostly comedy and uses examples from più fandoms then just Twilight. There will also be examples that tak lyke dis and capslock. So be careful when reading.

I'm sure we are all familiar with a fangirl. (Or fanboy, but they are different and we will not be discussing them today.) Put simply, fangirls are very, very, VERY big fan of something. Twilight fangirls are obsessed with Twilight and will probably have as much Twilight merchandise as possible. A Bangel fangirl may eat te in your sleep if te are a hardcore Spuffy shipper, and a fanpop fangirl...
