If you're familiar with the Twilight universe, you know that Bella and Edward have an unhealthy relationship. A LiveJournal user has detailed fifteen ways, using a list from the National Domestic Violence hotline. Is that why Twilight's so "romantic"?
Friends, feminists, netizens, lend me your ears; I come to bury the Twilight Saga, not praise it. The evil that Twilight does lives in theaters; The good is oft interred on the internet; So let it be with New Moon.
The Buff werewolf has it down to a science: There's the screamer, the crier and the fainter. (He left out the sigher, the huffer, the eyeroller.) Oh, and remember when Taylor was posing wet on the beach? Guess what:
