might be the best saga of vampire romance in recent history, but let's be real, it's full of inconsistencies.
Sure, it's a sci-fi vampire romance and it shouldn't be taken all that seriously, but still, the book seems to break its own fantastical rules at times.
How could Bella repress 150 years worth of blood-thirsty vampire urges just because she'd known about the struggles for 2 measly years in advance? How could Bella and Edward kiss if his skin is meant to be harder than stone?
In the books, vampires' skin is described as being marble-like in texture and harder than granite. This is probably the most common question amongst Twihards.
So assuming the clouds in Forks didn't plunge the city into complete darkness, shouldn't the vampires still have sparkled outside, just a little less vibrantly? Why was Edward stepping out in the sun in Volterra in We get that it's against Volturi law for vampires to be noticed in open sunlight lest they be seen by humans sparkling and thereby, expose themselves as vampires.
Which is what a depressed Edward does in universe, most people believed the standard widely-held vampire myths.
If that is the case, wouldn't have kissing Edward been a pretty unpleasant, if not entirely painful, experience? In the book, when a human is turned into a vampire, all their body fluids turn into venom.
Wouldn't he have just gotten his own venom into Bella's wound and turned her into a vampire?Yet, after Bella turns, it takes her mere weeks to get her urges in check.It's explained away by suggesting that since Bella was so close to the Cullens and knew what to expect after being turned, she was able to stop herself from giving into her vampire urges. Bella had only known the Cullens for about 2 years at that point.Stephanie Meyer tried to answer this question on her website, explaining that unlike the other vampires powers, Jasper's power is actually affecting Bella physically by adjusting her pulse and endorphins to calm her down.Why is Jasper's power the only "science-based" power then while the rest are supernatural, though?So unless Bella's blood was exceptionally tasty-smelling to all vamps, there's still no reason Jasper should have freaked out so epically...6.
