I thought I was over it

amazon.com

A while back, when I was doing some research for this post, I watched The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. It had been awhile since I’d read the books or seen the movies. Plus, I’d since come to the conclusion that while the story is good for what it is – romance – the writing wasn’t very good because the end of the series was very anticlimactic. And Bella and Edward never fight. How realistic is that? It’s not. At all.

However, as I watched the movie, all of the feelings I had while reading the books came back to me and hit me like a ton of bricks. It was weird; I wasn’t expecting anything of the sort. Maybe it’s because when I read the books, I was at my father’s house, and they kept me sane during that time. I didn’t quite know what to do with myself after I finished reading.

Even the question of “Why didn’t Bella choose Jacob?” popped in my head, even though I know perfectly well why she chose Edward. It’s because when you’re around people who make you feel good, you don’t give up on those relationships. Or when you’re doing something that makes you feel good about yourself, you don’t give up on it just because it gets hard.

I might not like the writing so much anymore, but I guess The Twilight Saga still means something to me.

The Importance of Alice Cullen

 

I never thought The Twilight Saga would be relevant to me again.  I was content with my indifference; I even wrote a post about it.

I’d always loved Alice for her spunk and immediate acceptance of Bella.  And of course, she can see the future.  How cool is that?

AC: Chapter 2

As the days dragged on into weeks, Mary’s parents began to worry. She was still unconscious, and her stubborn fever would not break. No matter how many cold cloths Sarah placed on her daughter’s forehead, Mary still burned up like a wildfire. Numerous doctors examined her, but they couldn’t find anything wrong. The family was forced to consider funeral arrangements. But Sarah and Steven would not give up hope. They sat at her beside every day, their prayers never ceasing.

AC: Chapter 1

And then Mary fainted. Cynthia tried to lift her, but her unconscious older sister proved too heavy. Afraid to leave Mary but seeing no other option, Cynthia sprinted down the block toward the family home and rapped on the door insistently.

AC: From Air Conditioning to Alice Cullen (Prologue)

The year was 1928. It was just another ordinary day for the town of Biloxi, Mississippi. The sun shined down brightly on Mary Alice Brandon and her sister, Cynthia, as they walked home from school. Fair skinned as she was, it didn’t take long for Mary to sweat. She was used to that. But the day’s heat was so intense that she began to feel faint.

My Love/Hate Relationship with The Twilight Saga

I love Twilight for the same reason I hate it: Breaking Dawn.
I love Breaking Dawn because Bella and Edward stay together.

But the problem with that is it’s too perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I love Renesmee, but I also envy her. Life doesn’t work that way. It’s not always “Happily Ever After.” My parents divorced when I was 12. The whole time I was reading Breaking Dawn, I kept thinking “Why can’t I have that?

That being two parents who love each other and stay together. Also a father who cares about me as much as Edward cares about Renesmee.

I love the other books, but Breaking Dawn hurts sometimes.

Don’t get me started on Breaking Dawn Part 2.
