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

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

I would like to note that anne reis wrote the entire series before Meyer in case any idea's that anne stahl, 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 Von Vampire but they prefer human blood in Interview with a Vampire AND Twilight soon followed this way

3. The Vampire 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...

Preface:
I have read all Bücher 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 oder not the Autor oder readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages about what is acceptable oder admirable oder desirable.
Also, I highly recommend link. It’s long, but fascinating and deeper than the Bücher themselves....

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

1. She's obsessively in Liebe 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'...

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...

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

I have been wondering for some time now about Bella's vulnerability, state of mind, and insgesamt 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 Titel of my favourite character, but also the black hole that Bella...

We have a discussion on the Foren 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...

I’ve read many lists pointing out Twilight “Plot Holes”, but Mehr 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 Vampire go to high school?”, oder “Why does Bella have so many friends?”). The rest are just factually incorrect, oder can be logically theorized. These are usually followed Von “Stephenie Meyer obviously ditched history class”, oder “Hasn’t Stephenie ever heard of logic?”, oder my personal favorite, “I would know, I had a lesson about it...

I've talked about some of the things that crossed my mind when Lesen Twilight in the past. Thoughts such as "when is Bella going to freak out about the Edward watching her sleep thing?" "Did that say sparkling? I've re-read that passage like, four times and it still seems to say sparkling" "Does Stephanie Meyer think deer is a vegetable? no, really does she? Does she think Du can call yourself a vegetarian if Du don't eat things like people oder those monkeys who know sign language?"
But those are valid thoughts that many people Lesen the Bücher also thought (well, maybe not specifically...

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

Bella Swan.

I seriously can't see why so many twilight Fans like her. She is sagte 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...

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...

There are 5 things Du need to know-

This Artikel is basically:
1. My story on how I got sucked into the Twilight Universe.
2. My life story on how Twilight has changed me. A lot.
3. A rant on why I like and hate about the series.
4. A confession on why I can't seem to get over with hating and loving it.
5. An opinion about how my life could have been without Twilight.

WARNING: Overall, this Artikel is about... why I think Twilight isn't that 'bad' after all. It's going to be lengthy. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This had me wondering for a while and to...

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 Autor - 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 insgesamt Schreiben 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...

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

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

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

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 sagte Jacob was beautiful once oder twice and called his new muscles impressive once oder that she is jealous of his tan skin. She thinks Edward is too good for her because she looks plain Weiter to him. She thinks Jacob is too...

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,...

Okay, so I just wrote an Artikel called "Bella Swan: A Rant", and it seems a lot people liked it, which mad me glad! But I've deicided to write an Artikel 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...

Lately, I've heard and seen jokes and Kommentare about Edward being "pathetic" oder "gay" because he was a 100 Jahr old virgin. I've written this Artikel to state that I see no problem in him being a virgin. I feel that virginity is not something to poke fun at. It simply means that someone wants to save themselves for that special someone whom they are going to spend the rest of their life with. I myself am a virgin and plan to stay that way until I get married.

However, I am somewhat confused. If Edward has lived for 100 years and has yet to give himself to anyone, then why does he decide to have...

Analyzing the Twilight Phenomena

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

Recently I came across a post at the Foren that sagte 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) Liebe Twilight huh?”.

I have seen this argument countless of times...

I felt like Schreiben this Artikel after Lesen a fellow ex-CAT member's Artikel on Twilight haters. I also had a 'talk' with another ex-CAT member.

"4) Twi-haters, this isn’t a hater oder anti spot. Don’t abuse it. Do not make personal attacks against Stephenie Meyer oder her fans, and don’t throw nasty oder immature insults at Twilight. This is supposed to be “Critical Analysis of Twilight”, not “Mindless Bashing of Twilight”."
