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.
