Howling At The New Moon

What do I like about the Twilight Saga?

Well, there are a few things that captivated me through out the whole Twilight Saga.

Mainly, I'd say, I like how the story is written. I like how the author, Stephanie Mayer plot the whole story,how the story flows, and every time it feels like the story's heading to a peaceful state, something bad or exciting comes along and stirs up the peace like when Bella's at her worse point of time during Edward's disappearance, (in the 2nd book - NEW MOON), just when you think her situation can't get any worst, Edward thought she died, and went to the Volturi for suicide. And then the thrill and excitement of the story starts stirring up again. That really keeps the fire burning for me through out the whole story.

Another thing that kept me captivated and engrossed in her story is how imaginative Stephanie Meyer is with her ideas, it really differentiates her story and makes her story stand out from the other vampire stories they have on the book shelves. One, is that how she thought of the vampire's glowing body when they step into the sunlight instead of hiding away from the sun and only come out in the night. Two, how the wolves would imprint, I enjoyed imagining the part when Bella found out that Jacob imprinted on her baby, Renesmee.(4th book, Breaking Dawn); and once they've imprinted, they'll stay loyal and never fall out of love with their imprinted partners. Same goes for the vampire's side, once they have their other half, they'd either rather die or go all out on vengeance for their soul mates. I like the thought that both the wolves and vampires are really loyal to their partners and never cheats on them. Life would be so peaceful without betrayals and love ones cheating on each other. Three, the idea of how a vampire is able to have a baby when their supposedly the living dead. These imaginations are really intriguing to me.

I also enjoyed reading the war scenes in the story especially the big preparation the Cullens family had with the help of their other vampire friends to fight the Volturi in the last book - Breaking Dawn. I enjoyed the process of Bella's preparation, how she learns to control and use her new found power. How she tried testing her powers against the other vampires until the actual war where she found herself being able to stretch her 'protection bubble' out, just enough to protect every member on her side.

Other than the story in general, now to the in-depths of the story.

I envy Bella a lot. (i know, envious of a character in a story. =.=') But i do. I envy her relationships with her loved ones.

First, with Edward of course. I envy how in-love they both are, how protective they are to each other and how they would do practically anything even if it hurts like when Edward had to leave Bella in order to keep her safe from harm, away from him and his family after the paper-cut incident during her birthday celebration (2nd book - New Moon);or how dangerous and life threatening the situation might be like when Edward had to suck the venom from Bella's arm despite his thirst for her blood, having to control himself (1st book - Twilight). And when Bella risks her life rushing to stop Edward from stepping into the sunlight, exposing himself, their kind to the world. (2nd book - New Moon).

Second, her relationship with Jacob. I envy their close-ness and the bond they have. Spending time together, hanging out almost all the time. I too envy how sensitive and caring Jacob is towards Bella, helping her go through her bad times, trying to keep her mind off Edward, not just because he loves her but he also wants her to be happy. And also how much he still loves her even though he knows that Edward would still be the chosen one but he's still willing to do anything to keep her happy. I think that really needs a lot of courage and strength. Course knowing you love someone that doesn't love you back the way you do, but still you're willing to sacrifice anything or do anything for the other party, just to see the smile on their face is not something easy.

Third, her relationship with both Edward and Jacob at the same time. There was a point where Bella fell in love with Jacob and was still madly in love with Edward at the same time. Even though Edward knew, he still stood by her and being the same old Edward he has always been to her, protecting her like a precious jewel. And the same thing goes for Jacob's side. Now despite
the both of them being love rivals, they still manage to put their hatred aside for the sake of Bella. Like in Eclipse when the 3 of them were in a tent in the woods, and Bella was having fever and the temperature wasn't right for her, Edward and Jacob worked together and maintained Bella's body temperature. That's something you don't see everyday in real life, infact, I don't think you'd ever see love rivals working together to protect the one they love. And they were able to pro-long that till the end of the story. Like even during Bella's pregnancy, they both worked together again maintaining Bella's body temperature while she endures the pain of having that child.

And this is what I like about the Twilight Saga.

So what do you think?
