Perhaps I'm looking for too much logic....

But why is century-plus old vampire Edward Cullen in HIGH SCHOOL?

I have no intention of reading these books or seeing the movie, but that's one piece of wtfkery that I want to see explained.

Despite the vague horror theme, I'm not going to insult The Bearer of the Yellow Sign by bringing him out as an icon. "Twilight" merits only a constipated cat.

Yeah, but since he's going to be 16 for all eternity does that mean he'll be perpetually in Grade 11 until the WORLD'S END????? That's the logic gap for me. Easier to keep him at home and say he's being homeschooled, but that's just me writing with, y'know, common sense and not being a Mormon.

He was dating Cho Chang so he deserved it.

I'm sorry to hear you read the book. If there's anything I can do to help you recover, let me know.

Well, did you expect something logical from the ::cough, cough:: writer's mind? Remember, she's interested in doing indoctrination hidden behind a glamour.

And I say ICK-ICK-ICK to the entire phenomenon.

I got the impression that Meyer has grown up sheltered and doesn't know how to write anything BUT Mormon-coloured society. I've heard of worse; remember the Star Wars novel "The Marriage of Princess Leia"? That's a temple marriage she's having with Han Solo at the end.

I actually saw the movie, which was quite lame, and in the movie they have a collection of graduation caps. They do four years, graduate, move on, and do another four somewhere else. Perpetual High School. I would hate my life.

But why is century-plus old vampire Edward Cullen in HIGH SCHOOL?

Two guesses:

(1) For exactly the same reason that Weirdly Imapervert is lurking outside a high school in his panel van, or

(2) He really, really never got the hang of trigonometry.

I've been watching "Buffy". That would be a good ending.

There really has to be an anime spoof of that, with the Bella-character slapping the Edward character and exclaiming, "Hentai! Hidoi desu!"

My sister read the books while high as a kite recovering from having her knees reconstructed in succession. She said they only made sense while she was on prescription painkillers.

That could've been my problem. I was stone cold sober when I read them.

I categorically refuse to watch it. Most of it is the twee factor, but the rest is the eeeeeyew, chick flick factor. That and the stalkery premise is skin-crawling.
