Re: Twilight Universe General Philosophical Musings

Warning - Within the next 72 hours, I will once again post on this thread with some musings about morality, religion, and how our own paradigms on these concepts affects how we read the books.

That is all.

Re: Discrepancies

Ah, Vampire . I'm more partial to Werewolf but the World of Darkness (a setting developed by White Wolf) intrigues me. A threat is a threat, no matter who you are. Predators in the wild would react if a bigger predator happened upon them. If Aro (or indeed, any vampire) began to see humans as a thr...

Re: Discrepancies

So, to bring it back to a non-confrontational idea about vampires and such... Knives, you are writing a wonderful novel about traditional vamps (that you need to come and update us about because I'm dying to know more). Andy, you like the twist on the vamps that SM created. Rings, you are our liter...

Re: Discrepancies

Friendly tone reminder from your Fearless and Frost-clad Mod: This was not actually meant to be a debate thread -- or a fencing match. So not to spoil your fun or anything, but...a less adversarial mode of conversation would be welcome. There are ways of getting your point across without taking a r...

Re: Discrepancies

Hope the resistance dies well, since it'll be futile. hahahahaha. Welcome back! And btw, I'm still waiting for you to admire my skill in tracking down that "like diamond only harder" quotation for you.... (*grin*) O Great and Noble December, you descend from the heavens as a frost-clad angel, fearl...

Re: Discrepancies

Also, there aren't a huge amount of vampires to begin with. The Volturi must have a huge feeding ground, with all their connections, and they'd want to keep it that way. Even with their current numbers, "farming" humans in the way that's been suggested would limit them to a certain area and a small...

Re: Writers Central

Well, I'm going to continue posting world content, so I guess, for now, critique on that will work great. As far as her name goes, Kaylee has been updating the spelling with the ages. It's easier than explaining - and that's IF she writes a name down at all. Some terms! Vampire Slang Keep in mind th...

Re: Writers Central

Sanguine "Tyler, I swear to God, if you don't shut up I will kill you for real." Sanguine is, at its heart, a love story involving vampires. Kaylee Laythe has been dead for about eighty years or so - she stopped counting - when she picks up a stalker by the name of Tyler Vici . The poor kid makes t...

Re: Discrepancies

Alright, I've said it before, and I'll say it again - in a world containing intelligent twi-pires, "modern earth" would not exist. Let us assume, just for a moment, that Twi-pires came into existence shortly before the Inquisition, since the Voulturii remember those guys. What medieval weapon could ...

Re: Discrepancies

A few gaps in your logic. Where does SM state that her vampires are made of diamond? I'll give you some time to look. Go ahead. Hmm. No luck? Just because the outer shell of vampires is hard and has some diamond-like visual qualities does not mean that they share key chemical qualities, such as boi...
