Re: Discrepancies

That's a pretty big "if." Even with all that firepower (pun intended) they still have to somehow manage to score a hit. Your average TW vampire should be able to avoid (and/or counterattack) all that. Oh yeah - certainly no "single vampire hunter"thing. I'm thinking 12 highly trained guys with full...

Re: Discrepancies

I will just note that Stephenie is not one of us XY types and, by her own admission, not a fan of the horror and hardcore action genres, so her mind is not going to conjure the same scenarios as those of us who watch the Underworld trilogy and such :D

Re: Discrepancies

I would guess burning napalm, if you could get it on a vampire, would kill one. I suspect that they could make it through "standard" fire relatively unharmed, as long as they were not "bleeding venom" but also suspect that more extreme heat would damage their outer "stone-like" skin and set their ve...

Re: Twilight Universe General Philosophical Musings

Scary ≠ not suitable for children. The first Harry Potter books are at a level that a child can read and yet they can be frightening. That Basilisk was more than a little freaky. And of all the books I've read, I find childhood fairy tales the most terrifying. Stories like Hansel and Gretel and the...

Re: Twilight Universe General Philosophical Musings

Regarding the horror-level of SM's vampires - remember, these books are designed to be suitable for young readers. While many of us creative types could write stories using SM's vampires that are far more horrifying, I appreciate the fact that my 10 year old son can read the series. Returning to vam...

Re: Discrepancies

I think if the Cullens would have tried to Provoke them with old allegations that they had no proof of at the scene in BD than the Volturi would have put it down and than brought up their own allegations that the Cullens made this stuff up to try and over take the Volturi etc. etc. That's how I see...

Re: Discrepancies

I must admit to having had a few errant thoughts during that scene. While Edward is more than capable of reading Bree's mind while tending to Bella, I have to wonder why the additional information of the contact between the Volturi and Victoria never came up. With Eclipse alone, we are left with the...

Re: Discrepancies

OK - after re-reading the section in Eclipse, it's not a gaping as I had thought originally. In my mind at least, Riley's story of getting Bella's clothing didn't jive with my memory of the event; as in, I remembered more than one Vampire being involved - one in the house and one waiting with a "get...
