A Twilight Question About Edward and Bella

Postby Lightbeard » Fri Nov 20, 2009 4:36 pm

So I was reading a cracked.com article about creep relationships in movies and twilight was number one but it brought up a good point that I wanted some opinions on

http://www.cracked.com/article/201_the- ... omances_p2
(bottom of page)

The Romance:

When Bella Swan first sees Edward Cullen, she knows she's doomed to love him forever. Emphasis on "doomed." And how could she not with those pouty lips, that perfect bone structure and the hair that makes it look like he hasn't showered in weeks?

Fortunately for the spastic Bella, the feeling is mutual, as Edward becomes her number-one stalker and repeatedly sneaks into her bedroom to watch her sleep, which is in no way creepy at all. Of course when we tried this, all we got to show for it was a restraining order, which is just further proof that you should take movies with a grain of salt.

Wait, Something's Not Right Here...

Bella is a 17-year-old girl. Edward is a 108-year-old man.

What in the hell could they possibly have in common, besides the fact that they both go to high school? And, now that we mention it, why is this man STILL GOING TO FUCKING HIGH SCHOOL?!?! What could he possibly be getting out of the experience?

You have to wonder: How many high schools has Edward attended? How many high school girls have mooned over him? And here's the real question that we've been dancing around: How many Bellas have there been? After all, a man doesn't go to high school for 90 years without dating.

So a friend showed me this tonight, it is apparently an actual product:

Creepy as fuck.
Here's where you can buy it, Twilight fans http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?li ... d=28682772


I think I saw it put best when someone said something along the lines of "Every girl can relate to Bella in some way because she has no personality."
The movie is obviously targeted at teenage girls, I can see how the fantasy of having a really cute guy really like you for absolutely no reason (and without you having to do anything in return) could be appealing. But it is very one-dimensional.
I haven't read the books, but I can only hope that they go in to more detail about the relationship and personalities of the characters?

Also, teenage love is forever!

Vampires have no pulse right? So no blood pressure? So they have a little...problem?

How exactly are male vampires supposed to become romantically involved with anything?

Well I guess the human / vampire slash fics are still believable.

Everything else is out though!

They might as well coagulate all in place, bringing new meanings to priaprism.
