Anti-Twilight EssayI think now is a good time to discuss one of the newest "threats" to society: Twilight. "A love story with a bite".... Or is it? On the surface, Twilight may seem "perfect" but it hides about a thousand flaws. Let's start with the first chapter of the horror: Twilight itself.Anti-Twilight Essay5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
"I'd never given much thought to how I would die- But dying with someone I love sounds like a good way to go." - Bella, Twilight preface
What a way to start a book, eh? "Oh, hey... You're gonna die! Have a nice day!" I mean, sure, some books start like this but at least they don't make it ROMANTIC.
Now.... Skip ahead, skip ahead. Blah blah blah... Ok, now Bella's at school... Eww.... She's even making the teacher blush. *shudder* How many boys have fallen for her already? One, two... nine.. ten.. And don't even get me started on Edward... *shifty eyes* And Bella says she's "treading water"... *shudder* Of course you'd say that with all these men wrapped around your little finger.

You hold the pen in your hand, poising it above your page, as you shift through your never-ending thoughts. Each one trying to grab your attention, to be the one that is chosen, but you want something. . . Right. But no matter how many thoughts and ideas you go through you just can't find it. The pressure of all these useless thoughts begins to build up inside your skull. They are pushing each other around, trying to be heard. They smash against the walls, and your head is throbbing, and starts ache.
You know! You bloody well KNOW that the right thought is in there somewhere! There's just too many other noisy thoughts getting in the way. Of course, it would have to be the one to hide itself, deep in the dark vacant corners of your mind. It probably feels like it has to be there so it doesn't get trampled by the others.

This is what happens when I am forced to go to bed extremely early (were talking hours before I normally should) and I get ZERO sleep. I start thinking up really weird shit.. And just like all mine have been lately my thoughts turned to twilight and exactly how things that are so simple dont add up.
My first thought was when I listen to a person on you tube describing a scene from the last book in the series that described the oh so extravagant sex scene between Edward and Bella.
Well wait a second! Anyone that has taken basic sex ed would know that the male penis is nothing more then a giant.. Or some guys wish was giant XD muscle.

The night watchman called lights out at ten o'clock as usual. The doors locked, and the pale light of the moon shone through Ralph's room. In the room stood a sink, toilet, and a small cot. The room was padded. The door had a glass window that reflected fluorescent light into the room. One window on the opposite side of the room let in the natural light of the moon. The combination of the artificial and natural light created a faint glimmer upon the mirror that hung above the sink.
Ralph sat on the floor as he always had after he and the other boys had been saved nearly two years ago. The war had ended in a stale mate with both sides realizing neither could win. Moscow, London, Washington D.C., Paris, and Berlin had all been obliterated. Leaving only a ghostly set of ruins, the only evidence any of them had ever existed.
Ralph's face was stuck in a blank daze. He hadn't spoken since he was rescued. The other boys had been released into the public, though after heavy examination.
100 reasons - HP over Twilight1. Harry Potter fans aren't vain and we don't base our favourite books depending on how "hot" the vampires and werewolves are.100 reasons - HP over Twilight5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
2. HP books are much better written and English teachers agree with this comment.
3. Stephen King hates Twilight and loves Harry Potter and we can all rely on Stephen King (Author of The Shining) to be a good critic.
4. Twilight may include beautiful romantic elements. However, Harry Potter includes many beautiful romances, lots of exhilerating adventures, action, magic...the list could go on.
5. There are many more layers to the plotline, story and genre of Harry Potter.
6. Even Cambridge graduates enjoy Harry Potter.
7. Harry Potter has an adult version as it is aimed at a wide variety of the population. Twilight is in the teenage section & the teenage section alone.
8. Harry Potter fans can spell and put forward a decent argument on these discussion groups, not like "omg rpattz is hot n stuff".

Time: 3:45 a.m.
A large palace like structure sits in a secluded area of the Turkestan Desert. Guards dressed in a mix of Arabian and Greek armor with rifles patrol every possible entrance and exit. In a large study, inside the palace, Ra's al Ghul sits by the roaring fire. He sits with his back to the door while staring into the fire. Sitting to the right side of his chair is a small table with a bottle of wine and a half-filled glass on it. To his left are two swords of old Persian make. The door opens and in comes Ubu, Ra's faithful servant. With him are two guards, armed with rifles while he is unarmed.
Ubu: (Walks over to Ra's left.) Master,(He bows) there has been no sign of him.
Ra's: Not yet. But then he never lets himself be known unless he wants it that way. (He picks up his wine glass and drinks the last drop.) Have you dealt with the one who gave him my location?

The Legion of Doom. The anti-Justice League. If you're satisfied with the classic 13 members, (Luthor, Grodd, Brainiac, Cheetah, Capt. Cold, Sinestro, Bizzaro, Giganta, Black Manta, Riddler, Scarecrow, Solomon Grundy, & Toyman), that's fine. But, I decided to revamp the membership a little:
1. I started by deciding how many members there'd be. I went with thirteen, as a nod to the classic Legion.
2. I knew Lex Luthor would be the leader, of coarse. Not only that, but like the Injustice League Unlimited, I also added Joker and Cheetah. Lex, Joker, & Cheetah. The "anti-three", if you will. The opposing forces to Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman. That left me with 10 open spaces.
3. Taking a hint from the first 3, I also added each respective nemesis of the other 4 iconic JLA members:
Aquaman - Black Manta
Green Lantern - Sinestro
Flash - Captain Cold
Martian Manhunter - Ma'a
Why CDF is BetterThan Twilight1. Names: Darren Shan came up with names. Stephenie Meyer borrowed the names from her family and friends. Not to mention the main character's name: Bella Swan, literally "Beautiful Swan". Darren Shan's main character is, well, Darren Shan. He's not being egotistical, but actually the reason why that's his pen-name is revealed in the last book and it's actually apart of the the plot.Why CDF is BetterThan Twilight6 years ago in Humor More Like This
2. Religion: We're all familiar with Stephenie Meyer's weird-ass baby name for Bella and Edward's child- Renesmee. Now what's so obvious about this name? Well, Bella (being a mormon) took her mother's name and Edward's mother's name and mixed them together to make one weirdo name. She also took Charlie and Carlisle and made Carli. Jacob also magically incorporates a part of the bible into the 3rd book, because we ALL know the story about the two wives and that baby.

Simon the boy,
Full of pleasure,
Was not a toy,
But very clever.
His bright eyes,
Which had deceived all,
The Lord of the Flies,
Brought his downfall.
The only power to withstand evil,
Was killed during the night,
Mistaken as the devil.
Now that day has lost its light,
Simon the mystic watches with worry,
As the boys commence in a fight,
And kill in a fury.
Simon the brave,
Could have convinced,
But the beast in all craved,
All hearts minced.
Now all in pain,
Lets hope his death,
Was not all in vain.

It was a calm Summer morning in Danville. The birds were chirping, the wind breeze was soft, everything was quiet. Suddenly, a Vortex opened on the city limits. Out of it came out a young man in his twenties, with black hair and dark-brown eyes, wearing black jeans and a black sweater. Looking around, he made sure that nobody was close.
"I'm starting to wonder if I should spent some Summer days here." he spoke to no-one. Turning to the Vortex. "Hey Sabrina, we're here! Don't you want to see the Tri-State Area?"
Out of the Vortex came out a young teenager, around seventeen years old. She was wearing an orange skirt and a white shirt with a pink jacket over it. Her sneakers matched her jacket. She had short blond hair, with a black cap over it and light-blue eyes. She stared at the city in awe. "So that's Danville." she said after a few minutes. Looking at the boy.

Jenna just kept spitting seeds. Eight years old, she already knew the seeds that flew the farthest would be Cin's no matter what.
Jenna puckered her mouth preparing for another losing bombardment. Suddenly she paused, lips plump and pouting as the mouth of a painted candy box cupid. Spitting the seeds into her palm, she stared at them for a moment, chewing the end of her pigtail. Then anxious with inspiration, she trotted into the house and minutes later reappeared hugging a fishbowl.
Carefully placing the bowl on the steps, she solemnly stared at the rattled goldfish who darted and wiggled his copper penny of a body. But when Jenna scattered her handful of watermelon seeds into the water, the goldfish paused

If he was human, the heat wouldn’t be beating him like Batman and despair. He hasn’t been human since freezing Nora, since stopping Death. Humans can age, but he hasn’t the lines on his face like someone his age should. The only lines he has are frown lines from years of failing to cure Nora. Nora hasn’t aged either, does that make her inhuman like he is? No, it makes her even more vital than his humanity.

Accidentall In Love, ShinoxTenten (part 1)The first thing that Tenten had noticed about her current mission partner was the fact that he hardly ever spoke. This could not have been more opposite of the weapon's mistress, who filled every available moment of time with words. It was one of the multitude of opposites the two had when compared. It wasn't that she didn't like Shino; it was just that it was hard to form a friendship with a person who didn't respond to 99% of what you said. However, his skills as a tracker had indeed come into handy whenever they had wandered into unfamiliar territory, or when their target had attempted to escape from them. Millions of man-eating bugs erupting from a heavily trench-coated figure may easily have scared anyone else, but after years of being a shinobi, it was just another day of the same weirdness all over again.Accidentall In Love, ShinoxTenten (part 1)2 years ago in Romance More Like This

Top Ten: Why Twilight sucks.1.Stephanie Meyer can't write. And I'm not saying that because of what Stephen King said. I don't care what Stephen King said. Let's recap, shall we? She uses the same words such as "icy", "cold", "marble" and "his beautiful face" over and over. She describes Edward in extremely unnecessary detail. Honestly, if she took out all those descriptions of Edward, the whole Twilight "saga" would fit into one book. She includes totally useless information that NO ONE (except for maybe the crazy fan girls) cares about. I don't give a damn if Bella rode to Forks with her mom's car windows rolled down! Really, I don't. Also, this so-called-saga has no real plot to it whatsoever. And no, romance does not count as a "plot." Romance is a genre. A genre which involves a plot. It has no real characterization either. Sure, Bella may turn into a vampire, but did she really learn any life lessons, or become a better person because of her experiences? Of course not!
