Excuse me Twilighters everywhere. You, yes, you.

Hear the exciting news? Yeah, I heard it too. New Moon the movie! YAY!

If you want more details, check them out at Deadline Hollywood Daily and
Cinema Blend

Now, you might notice some of the comments people have made. Some very rude comments.

No, I’m not talking about the Twilight bashers who hate everything Twilight – I don’t care about those people, whatevs to them, they’re missing out.

The people who I have a bone to pick with are infact the Twilighters themselves. Team Edward girls, to be precise. (Just for the record, as I’ve previously mentioned, I am Team Edward.)

EXCUSE ME GIRLS! (and boys) What the hell? You call yourselves Twilight fans, yet you go bashing New Moon because omg, shock horror, Edward is missing for a fair chuck of the novel!

Furthermore, you go on and whinge about how you’re going to refuse to see the movie if they actually DARE focus on Bella and Jacob during that time Eddie is missing!

And THEN, to top it all off, you, yes you Team Edward-ers, who claim you know absolutely everything about Edward, say you will ONLY see the movie if they “flick across” to the “adventures” Edward and the Cullens were having “in Italy”, away from Bella.

Well it’s time for a reality check!

Have you read New Moon? I assume you have, if you are as in love with Edward as you claim to be. Because I’d like to make some things very clear.

First of all, there are many reasons why Edward leaves that turn into crucial events in the story:

1. Edward leaves Bella because he thinks she’ll be safer, but what we realise is that she isn’t.

2. We suffer with Bella whilst Edward is away, it makes us long for him even more.

3. Jacob is crucial to the storyline – in terms of the werewolves (Sam! Seth! Leah!), in terms of Renesmee. (Remember, the original sequel to Twilight was Forever Dawn, in which Jacob imprinted, despite having only been a minor character in the first book.)

4. Laurent and Victoria reappear (although Victoria is more illusive), which we also realise is crucial to the storyline.

5. Bella jumps off a cliff.

6. The Volturi would be difficult to introduce otherwise.

7. And finally, and most importantly, both Bella and the reader realise exactly WHAT is being sacrificed by Bella choosing to be with Edward, hopefully one day as a vampire.

Also, we must look at exactly what Edward was doing during the time he and Bella were apart. If you were a true Edward fan, you’d know what he was up to:

1. He tried tracking Victoria, and failed.

2. He then went and sat, in a corner (of sorts), still as a statue, and wallowed and moped. Because he missed his Bella, and he later told her that he was on the verge of coming back for her, before he found out she’d “died”.

3. He arrived, in Italy, only a few days before Bella. And he went to Italy to convince the Volturi to kill himself.

So, let me conclude thus far: Bella, in Forks, discovers werewolves and jumps off a cliff. Edward, in a corner somewhere, wallows and mopes and sits as still as a statue. He is not having “adventures in Italy”.

What’s going to make a more exciting movie? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Of course, I love looking at very pretty Robert Pattinson as much as the next girl. I’ve confessed that many a time. But really, he’d be sitting so still that it would be easier and cheaper to just download a picture of him and stare at it for about an hour. (Which is about the time I assume they’ll dedicate to Jacob time in the movie.)

And it’s just not THRILLING! Werewolves and cliff diving is far more thrilling.
Also, we must remember, the events in Italy take up a large chunk of the novel, and will no doubt end up being the focus of the movie, regardless. You’ll still get your Edward fill – not only in New Moon, but when Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are movie-fied also.

Also, just one more thing, I might be a very, very loyal Team Edward fan, but I want the story Stephenie Meyer wrote – I am loyal to her first and foremost – I do not want to watch Robert Pattinson sit in a corner JUST because he’s pretty. (I do that every day, he’s my laptop wallpaper!)
Remember – most of you hated him only a few short months ago. (I’m pretty sure I was the only girl on the planet who was pleased with his casting, initially.)

So if you’re really the Twilight fan you claim to be, you’d all stop bashing New Moon and Jacob – because you KNOW Bella picks Edward anyways, and because New Moon should be movie-fied as loyally to the book as is possible!

And you should all be thrilled that they’re turning the other books into movies – when initially, they were going to leave it at Twilight. I am really, honestly, absolutely psyched for both Twilight and New Moon, movie-fied!

My work here is done.

p.s. You may notice, under various New Moon movie-related articles, there are comments that read similarly to this one. That’s me. Infact, if you click on my name you SHOULD be redirected here or to my email. I don’t normally get stirred up over things like this, but man you guys really got my knickers in a knot!

I shall make this very clear now: I love Leah. She is my best and favourite werewolf and my best and favourite minor character. Alright? And to all you Leah-haters out there: whatever in your face. You clearly know nothing about life and broken hearts and having to always be around the boy you can’t have and all that stuff.

Why do I love Leah? Well first of all, she’s got super spunk. Ok, sure so with Sam’s pack she used to stir fights and controversies – but put yourself in her paws, honestly. Imagine having to be around the boy who broke your heart, to have to hear his thoughts, especially as he would almost always be thinking about his new girl. It’d just about kill me if I were in her shoes, I’d go absolutely crazy. Absolutely crazy. Ok, so Leah’s a “harpy” but man, Jacob was being a complete hypocrite calling her that.

Second of all, she is a great big sister to Seth. Ok, so she teases her brother ‘Mum dropped him alot when he was a baby.’, but don’t we all make fun of our siblings? It’s kind’ve expected. And she always worries about him, looks out for him, makes sure he doesn’t become a ‘vampire chew toy’ – even if half her excuse for that is to get away from Sam. (But wouldn’t you also look for any excuse to get away from Sam?)

Now don’t go claiming that you wouldn’t act like Leah if you were in her shoes! I know you would. I know I have! She’s not so different from the rest of us girls. Ok, so she can shapeshift into a werewolf, and has super strength and her body temperature would kill any ordinary girl, but she longs for acceptance and to find someone who will look after her and love her and make her feel the way Sam did and she has human emotions. Don’t tell me you didn’t want revenge when you had your heart trashed. Man I know Sam tries, but that doesn’t help her at all.

And ok, she hates Bella. But wouldn’t you? No Bella, no vampire problem, no werewolves, her and Sam might’ve still been together. Or at the very least she would’ve stayed human, stayed out of Sam’s thoughts and not been menopausal. That’s enough of a reason to hate Bella, in my opinion. (Note: I adore Bella, but this isn’t about her, it’s about Leah so whatever in your face times two!)

Leah’s got nerve, like Hannah Montana sings about having. Infact, I bet she often asked herself:
Well I’ll tell you now, Leah. Hannah Montana would write a song about it and then she’d plot some really intricate plan where she used her Hannah Montana-ness against her opponent. After all, who says you can’t be Superman? Hannah sure doesn’t!

“This is making me sick, Jacob. Can you imagine what this feels like to me? I don’t even like Bella Swan. And you’ve got me grieving over this leech-lover like I’m in love with her, too. Can you see where that might be a little confusing? I dreamed about kissing her last night! What the hell am I supposed to do with that?”

Ok, here she comes across like a total bitch. But she’s not just whinging about her dream man, she’s telling Jacob to drink a cup of concrete and toughen the hell up, because Bella’s obviously never going to pick him just like Sam didn’t pick her so whatever in his face. Now, I totally felt for Jake at that point, the poor kid, but Leah’s right – he needed more than a cup of concrete, he needed some coffee in that and a few whole chilies. She was just trying to help him get over it, in her own, albeit slightly unusual, way. Remember, Leah and Jake eventually bond – the fact that both had suffered from torturous broken hearts was not coinky-dink, peoples!

Finally, the reason I love Leah is that she is an unresolved character. Everyone else is pretty much resolved. Jacob and Renesmee will be forever happy together, as will Edward and Bella and the rest of the Cullens. Many of the other werewolves imprinted and Seth is still a baby. Leah, menopausal at twenty and finally having escaped Sam leaves the world of Twilight open for us to maybe return one day. I’m surely not the only one who wants to find out if Leah ever imprints or manages to make sexy times and have tiny werewolf babies with her hottie imprintee.

So we conclude here, and whoever still disagrees with me about Leah:
As in, Leah will kick your puny human bum into infinity, because she’s super tough and all. Yeah.
