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

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

Number 1: Someone tells you or 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 or not. He says she is the first one he dated, but then he talks of Tanya,...

Dear Ms. Meyer,

Hi. I’m Tria. It’s nice to meet you. As you have probably guessed, I am composição literária to you concerning your series known as “The Twilight Saga.” If you’ll forgive me for being rude, I’d like to be blunt.

You fail.

Again, apologies for my rudeness. If you’ll allow me, I’m going to back up this assumption of your literary failure.

Let’s start with the plots, looking at each book individually, and then the books as a whole.
Twilight: Barely has a plot. The book is 300 or so pages of nothing happening besides mooning on about Edward and his eyes. Then you throw in three...

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

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

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 kiss 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...

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

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

Recently I came across a post at the Forums that said 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) amor Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

Q: What did bella say when the shops ran low off the glitter?
A: yeeew!!! Edward you suck!!!!
- Yes i know this is extremely late but i just remebered what i was going to write :)


I was brought with my mam and sister to new moon on the 20th of November. Personally i was'nt really bothered about going or not so i went so at least i would be able to say what i think about it.
The movie started at 7 and and at 6:20 there was at least 60 people waiting in the cinema most of them girls from the ages of about 10 to 55 many people at the back of the line were pushing to the front without mercy, squishing the others.
(Oh i must remind ye that i live in ireland and at the moment only girls from...

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

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

Bella Swan.

I seriously can't see why so many twilight fãs like her. She is said 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...

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

I have been wondering for some time now about Bella's vulnerability, state of mind, and no geral, global 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 título of my favourite character, but also the black hole that Bella...

We have a discussion on the forums 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...

This is a short little rant, people.

I don't know about you, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when people spell my name wrong.

On Fanpop, I've gotten ranrea, renre, renray, ranraa, and many others. In real life, I've gotten Reagan, Regon, Regen, Reagen.... and people are always misspelling my last name (I'm not displaying that here.)

One thing I've noticed on fanpop (and many other fansites, as well) is that people often fail to spell Stephenie Meyer's name right. That's right: StephEnie, with an E right there. Not an 'a'. An 'e'.

Some people have completely butchered Meyer's name. Stephanie,...

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 author - 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 no geral, global composição literária 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...

Okay, i decided to write a critical analysis of a character from the twilight series. My first choice would have been to do one on Bella Swan, but there is already a whole spot dedicated to that, so i decided on my segundo choice: Edward Cullen. So I hauled out all my Twilight books and combed through them, analyzing and taking notes. Please leave a comment on my critical analysis telling me what you think, what you agree on and what you disagree on. Please no nasty comments. Enjoy!

Okay, number one...one of the reasons Twilight is so dramatic and sometimes just plain depressing is because...

Please no Jacob hate. Thx:)
Everything and Nothing-Boom Circuits
Lyrics:
One mais body left all alone[Jacob is left por Bella]
She's made another coração her home[Bella choosing Edward]
Lost between the sea and the sky
An angel learning how to fly[i think this is how Bella is learning to adjust to her new vampire-self or Jacob learning to cope with the situation]


She floats above our bodies asleep in their graves
Dancing in the moonlight glow[i feel like this is Bella once Jacob is dead. Shes like dancing because she is content with her life?]

(I can't have her, save me from her)[repeated throughout song....

The Harry Potter vs Twilight war is a huge phenomenon in the literary world. We have artigos floating around in the Internet (even in CAT) where both camps vehemently defend their fandoms. I am a huge Harry Potter fan, but today, I am not going to take sides. How it started, and how it evolved in a full-scale clash between fãs of both series is something I would cover in this article.

It started off with a few websites claiming Twilight is the new Harry Potter. Harry Potter fans, of course, would not take it sitting down, and they wrote artigos with reasons why Harry Potter is better than...

So I was originally going to publicar this artigo in the Books to Read spot, but then found this place, and I think it fits in here much better :) Anywho, this is an opinion artigo 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 you haven’t heard of it. From the first publishing of that first book to the most recent perfume-bottle scandal, Twilight has permeated the very core of pop culture, not to mention high school conversation. No matter whether...

Well, I'm a Twilight fan, but I like to be critical of the series anyways. But recently, I discovered that a lot of the Twi-hater fanbase (or hatebase?) has been consisted of mostly people who have only seen the movies, and I instantly saw how there were so many Twi-haters.

Let me just start off por saying that the movie sucks a**, and I'm being NICE! The atuação is terrible, they cut out about half the book and completely interpreted the book in all the wrong ways, the script sounded like it had been written por a five ano old, and the actors portrayed the characters so poorly, I almost became...

Disclaimer: The título of the artigo may seem to be a bit strange, as most of my artigos that I have posted on here are usually issues I have with the Twilight Saga, but I decided that myself as an anti, wanted to write about things I actually do like about the series. Guarantee, I actually do think Stephanie Meyer did create some characters in this series, and I just wanted to list my topo, início 8. This will be in no particular order.

Jasper Hale

If hypothetically, I were to meet the Cullen, I would think that Jasper would be the only one I probably be remotely afraid of in any sort of way. Or...
