My week has been pretty crazy and the holidays are upon us. So I have been unable to collect my thoughts well enough for a full scale post. Instead I thought I’d just mention the little things in Twilight that have just pissed me off to no end.
1. When Edward is describing his family and how they ALL found their life mate (One Man and One Women 4 LIFE couldn’t be mor eliteral) he talks about their concern that he hadn’t found someone they. They were concerned that he had been “turned too soon” and that there was something wrong with him. I think they might have been scared that he was TEH GAY!!!!!!111!!! And well we know how the Mormons Vampires feel about that whole thing.
2. Bella makes a joke that shows how she is very at ease with his vampire lifestyle but Edward doesn’t take it well. Even though Bella chides him she checks his eyes to “make sure she is forgiven”. It is a small part but it sums up the dynamic of their relationship, Bella has her own personality but judges it based on Edward’s reaction. She may say he’s over-reacting but if he stays mad at her than she was obviously in the wrong.
3. Edwards constant annoyance at how easy going and unafraid she is of the vampire lifestyle. Later in the book, her lack of taking him serious gets her into some big trouble and he gets frustrated that she doesn’t seem to understand how dangerous they all are. Apparently Bella is supposed to be intimidated and scared in the face of vampires and her lack of fear seems a direct upfront to him. Perhaps it is challenging his belief that he should be the protector of the fragile human child.
