twilight books are really messed up
Debate Rounds (3)
Whether or not Vampires are suppose to sparkle Stephanie Meyer has a right to her own creativity she made her own version of vampires for entertainment purposes. I believe the reasoning for Stephanie Meyer making the character Jacob and Resenmee imprinting was for everyone to have a somewhat happy ending. Once again it was her choice and Stephanie Meyer can have her own creativity. The part of Bella leading two men on, one being a werewolf, the other a vampire is not at all messed up. Matter of fact this kind of plot has been going on for ages. The whole love triangle in general where someone is left out as a third wheel. For example, Pride and Prejudice, The Great Gatsby (which was in fact more messed up than what Bella did) even Titanic had a small love triangle. It's not simply about vampires and werewolves but the concept of a love triangle and the woman being in the middle or in some cases it's the man who has to choose not mattering if it means life or death. The fact that Edward is almost a hundred years old and Bella is only 18 is irrelevant a lot of classic vampire stories have a lot older vampires into younger humans and of course Resenmee is going to need blood she is a vampire herself. In fact the whole woman dies of childbirth thing is original as well. So for my conclusion on Round 1. It's not just Twilight there are several books out there including classics that have this same plot. Stephanie Meyer just tried to turn it around, small things of course like vampires sparkling, and the whole imprinting, to make it look like it came from her own creativity which some of it did.
Once again the love triangle thing. In the Great Gatsby Daisy has a daughter and is married but still has an affair with her old love/boyfriend. Another story "A tale of two cities," by Charles Dickens is the same messed up concept. Lucie plays both of them and in the end Sydney Carlton takes her husband's place and gets executed. Lucie not even really caring that he did such a thing just for her happiness. Once again, read any vampire book nowadays and the age will be a huge difference.
If you want to be technical about your "looking deeper into the story," then you would know that Stephanie Meyer put hidden meanings of her religion into the story and that was what it was all about.
I thank-you for letting me debate with you.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro put forth several reasons why the Twilight books were "really messed up". The most that Con gave in terms of defense for most of these was that "it was her choice and Stephanie Meyer can have her own creativity". That response is irrelevant to the question at hand. A person could write a story with a serial killer engaging in necrophilia, pedophilia and cannibalism--that would be "their choice", but it would clearly also be a "messed up" story. Arguments to Pro. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
