every time i see the preview for breaking dawn part 2 i get so angry. when bella says, “after eighteen years of being utterly ordinary” i want to punch her in the stomach. it makes me sick that someone like her is a role model for so many girls these days. i mean, how does it make them all feel when they can’t be vampires and have to remain “utterly ordinary”?
This is EXACTLY my problem with Vampire Bella. How about valuing yourself as you are/as a human rather than only learning to think you are worth something once you are given supernatural powers?
…then why doesn’t Bella have to spend eternity looking like an anorexic meth addict?
That’s how she looked when she was changed, so that’s how she should look as a vampire, right? She should be stuck for eternity looking emaciated, sickly and like she’s just given birth. Why does she get her normal body type back? How does vampire venom know what an ideal body type is? Stephenie, Stephenie… yes, it is your world. But you can’t keep reinventing the “rules” of a fictional universe once they are established.
This this this this this! Esme is more “rounded and soft” than other vampire women because she was changed so soon after having her baby, Alice is “thin in the extreme” with close-cropped hair from her time in the asylum… but Bella gets a full-body makeover. How on earth is this consistent with the rules she already had in place?
It was my impression that venom makes you more beautiful… but it can only work with what you’ve already got. James was an ugly human so he’s only ‘average’ as a vampire. Venom could like, straighten a crooked nose or fix a lazy eye… but if Alice didn’t get her body restored to a healthy weight, why did Bella?
