I have no particular love for Bella or Twilight in general, but something that has been bouncing around in my mind is whether or not she is the hero, the savior of the Twilight world. I'm not really talking about whether she was a protaganist or antagonist. She was definitely the main character and good even though she did cause a lot of problems, she somehow did it without becoming a villian, but she didn't really seem to accomplish anything other than becoming a vampire. So, if she's not the hero and not the villian, what kind of character is she?
BELLA IS THE MAIN CHARACTER.
He did things only stalkers would do, watching her while she slept,
At that time they were not lovers yet, and he behaved like any typical vampire would do: he stalked his prey.
forbidding her to see certain people, even disabling her car.
Again - any normal boyfriend would do the same, when pushy guy tries to steal girlfriend. Believe me, I know :D
Jacob believed with every fiber of his being that he was doing the right thing.
He is not smart.
Edward definitely and severely emotionally abused Bella
Actually Jacob gets more ponts. It was Jacob (not Edward) who called Bellai n words, abused her friends - both humans and vampires, tried to make decisions for her, fooled her, kissed her without her permission.
And... you mentioned that Edward forbids her to see certain people... but did you notice that Bella during her friendship with Jacob does not spend her time with schoolmates? Edward is more polite and social with them...
In the end, it wasn't all about love. It was about how Bella made her choice, despite everyone's objections and the simple logic.
It is movie not book. Melissa Rosenberg rewrote the story and many of us hate it. But Twilight book is all about love.
I am thoroughly shocked that you would even suggest that.
The kiss was out of line, but hardly sexual.
I am still very shocked.
Hm, let's see, there was only two. One that Jake took, another that he was given. Which one do you think I was talking about?
yeesh, that is so wrong. seriously. Nobody thought about it that way.
I was lost about "hardly sexual" part. So you mean, it was sexual??
O_o you said Jake sexually abused Bella.
This is making me want to curse.
You said Jacob sexually abused Bella. If you don't mean when he kissed her, then WHEN and WHERE did he sexually abuse her?
Haha, I did not exactly understand what you mean. Sometimes it happens with my English.
i know she is the main character and there wold be no twilight with out her but i can't stand bella. i don't know why i just can't. its like when u dislike someone but u don't really know why.
