Re: The Gender Divide

Regarding the sex scene and the gory birth: I think this is also something regional. I have a good friend in Europe and after making comparisons between cultures for oh- over ten years now- we've come to the conclusion that North America is shy about sex but not about gore, while it's the other way...

Re: Twilight Fanfiction Discussion Thread 2

Well, can't you see how your example of that modernized Pride and Prejudice is similar to many AH Twilight fics out there? For me, it's not so much a question of transplanting the characters as is and putting them in another scenario. It's about putting the character of the character- that is, thin...

Re: The Science of Twilight

Just stopping by after reading a section on the illustrated guide- seems my theory on why Leah's a wolf was pretty much spot-on. :) (Check out the family trees.)

Re: Alice Cullen

Actually I have to disagree a bit with you there, Jazz Girl . While Bella may not have consciously decided to cut her finger, she did decide to open the gift- and the consequences of that action would be something Alice could have seen. I chalk it up to a couple of things- one, it was something don...

Re: The Science of Twilight

To turn the question on its side, why would they need birth control? If I recall Leah's concerned about being sterile because she's stopped having her period. That means she's not ovulating, which means the eggs are just... there and not going anywhere. So why undergo a procedure (which while proba...

Re: Twilight Fanfiction Discussion Thread 2

"Outtake" strictly speaking really only covers parts of a work that were not included in the final version- scenes that were filmed but edited out of a movie, chapters/sections of a book that were in at some point but never made it to print. For your second and third definitions, I'd use "bonus cha...

Re: Glitch Report

Dunno if this counts or not, but I just went here on my new PC running Windows 7 and after one(!) attempt to log in I am treated to the "you have exceeded the number of attempts to login" page and had to log in with the Captcha thing... Seeing as this is my first time here on this PC, I'm a bit wor...
