I've lost hope for Twilight lovers.

That's usually how it sounds...at least around here. Ask her why Edward and Bella love each other. It usually makes their brains explode when they try to come up with an answer.

Well...there is their good looks, that's one reason. :roll: With Edward, though, it's not really Bella's looks, it's her...smell. Um, yeah. :roll:
They like to talk about each other mostly, and occasionally some Shakespeare (but even that's an attempt by the author to parallel their relationship, which I can't criticize one hundred percent; I have to give her credit for at least trying, but the feud is between the Cullens and the Volturi; Bella's family seems to get along pretty well with Edward's family as far as I can tell).
It would be nice if Bella said something like, "Edward is so brilliant when talking about Shakespeare." But unfortunately, all she talks about is his eyes and his sparkles (would Twilight be bashed any less without the sparkles?).
I'm sorry to hear about your unpleasant encounter with a Twilight fan, go leafs, but luckily the Twilight fans I know respect the fact that I'm not a huge fan of Twilight, and I respect that they are. If the Twilight lover can't respect that you don't like what they like, it's their loss.

PS Dark Knight is ten times better than Twilight

Yeah...they're in lust not love. Even Romeo and Juliet weren't in love.

That's pretty much the ONLY thing they have in common with R&J, actually, so maybe Smeyer was on to something after all! :lol:

I loved the first reviewer's putdown of Hannah O. That was brilliant.

:shock: Even the fans didn't like Breaking Down. Wait, Dawn.

They'll be back to their crazy selves soon enough. Meyer has brainwashed them.

Haha! I love reading how the fans go "omg you're just so stupid/jealous/(insert ireelevant adjective here)" to prove their "points". The people who don't love the book provide many vaild reasons, but the "argument" is the same for Twilight lovers.

This just made my day... no.... my year! Hehe, Miss "the-dark-knite-sucks-twilight-rocks" is about to get a lengthy message from me... :evil:

I wonder how Meyer feels... She's been hailed as the next Harry Potter, yet the Harry Potter fans can't stand her... She's brainwashed thousands of innocent people into violent acts.

I never liked Harry Potter. But I'd rather publicly hail J.K. Rowling as the best author to ever live than ever again read a sentence from Twilight.

Bella is horrible, mean and a total cow. Whiny and superficial and b*tchy and everything. If Meyer is like that, then well...

An example if you got into an argument with a Twilight fan...

"Omg I can't believe you think that! Ur just sooooo stupid u shud like be put in a mental hospital or somfing cos twilight is da best so there! ur just jealous cos the like the dark knight and clue sucks. so yeah take that!"

Sorry, I couldn't resist. As I said in an earlier post, I don't like either of them.

"Oh my goodness! You're the one that's whacked! You've got your nose in murder mysteries all the time! Are you planning to bump us all off, or something, you crazy person? Twilight's better than some para-mental Agnetha Churchie book or whatever!"

One of them once called Christie Churchie. I had to prevent myself from yelling at them.

Someone has to teach Twilight fans one things about writing a good critique: the critique is about the review/opinion/etc., NOT about the person.

And calling Christie Churchie? That's as close to mortal sin as you can get!
