The Premise of New Moon is Dumb

Okay, so this is the biggest thing that grinds my gears. Now, when I was researching this topic, the only major publication that I saw that mentioned this was Seventeen. But let me tell you, I got opinions, so buckle up folks, it’s about to get real.

Like, this whole thing was months after Edward and Bella started dating. And also like a year after she moved to Forks. So you’re going to tell me that homeboy could handle months of periods but one tiny paper cut and he loses his mind? No, no, not today. And even then, he was surrounded by other students, which means he handled years of periods, years of scrapes, and years of paper cuts.

And also, as I have reread the books, HOMEBOY HANDLED BELLA IN A PUDDLE OF HER OWN BLOOD. Like really, are you kidding me? Yes, he was attacking another vampire at the time, but he sat in a car with her as she was covered in blood and didn’t do anything. Read that again, he was in A FREAKING CAR with her covered in blood and he DID NOTHING! And suddenly a paper cut and she loses his mind? Dumb. Pure dumb.

I have nothing else to say. It’s dumb.
