Hahaha. Aww don't feel bad, if it makes you feel any better, I thought you were like 20 until I saw how old you were.

And I'm very young for a crunchy-roller. :P



I shall be sure to keep away from that isle. I'll be blinded by how DAZZLING it is. XD


Dazzling? Is he forbidden fruit or LSD?

Ok, here's a little update to the growing list of reasons that Twilight is a literary disaster. It is also summed up in a neat picture format.

Basically, Twilight's main character, Bella, is a self-insertion of the author Meyer. Don't believe me? Well take a look:

Wow excellent, I already knew that Bella was exactly that, but I didn't know they even look the same! And damn, what scared me the most is how long that description of Bella was, though I'm sure it must have gone at least 2 pages more.

Making yourself the fantasy of five male characters is considered commonplace? It is the context of the book that is most troubling about the self insertion aspect.

If you think that's screwed up, you should see my version of romance.

That depends. Do you get hot and bothered at the thoughts of buxom redheads with weapons?

You ignore the firearms and instead ask about the red hair? I think your priorities may be in need of revision.
