* TheyJustDidntCare
** The films in general. Aside from the dozens of [[SpecialEffectFailure Special Effects Failures]], some of the cast and crew don't really seem to care about putting effort into the movie they are making. Robert Pattinson, in particular, has outright stated his general lack of research into preparing for the role and his motivation for getting a paycheck at the end of the day.
** The manhwa. The art's actually decent, but the ''lettering'' is absolutely terrible. Half the word bubbles have to be transparent ''because they're covering people's faces''. That's an ''amateur webcomic'' mistake!
** Imprinted werewolf couple Quil and Claire. Does Stephenie Meyer know who [[{{Lolita}} Clare Quilty]] ''is?!'' (And if she does, talk about UnfortunateImplications...)
** ''Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined''. It's a Rule 63 version of the first Twilight novel, with the majority of the text basically copy-pasted from the original book, but with names and gender pronouns changed. Some story alterations are present, but to such little effect that they ultimately make no difference at all.

** How about the fact that he steals 0 negative blood from the hospital for Bella's behalf. The original intention seemed to be to have on hand in case she needs it during childbirth, but the reasonable thing to do in that case would be to test her for her actual blood type and acquire it when her due date approaches (blood doesn't hold up for all that long, and while you certainly ''can'' receive 0 neg blood regardless of your actual blood type, type specific is much more suitable). Then he has Bella drinking it but he keeps going for the 0 negative blood, even though it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference what type the blood is if it's going into her digestive system. Now, considering that you cannot purchase blood for your own personal useage, the only way he could have gotten it was to ''steal'' it. So the allegedly incredibly compassionate Carlisle repeatedly steals blood from the blood bank, stealing only the universal donor type which is needed for trauma situations when there isn't time to run the tests required for type specific blood, and he does so before he even ought to be needing it. Thus leaving patients in need of the blood in danger of not getting any, which can cost them their lives, thereby putting numerous people at risk of dying for Bella's sake. Not to mention that the people who donated their blood did not do it so that Bella Swan could drink it from her sippy cup. The lack of compassion and concern for human life displayed by Carlisle here is downright staggering.

* Reading the [[http://das-sporking.livejournal.com/873786.html Twilight Lexicon Personal Correspondence #12]] can be a rather... unpleasant experience, to say the least. Meyer attempts to justify some of the issues fans have had about aspects of the story, such as the Cullens murdering numerous people without any consequence, and it doesn't go so well.

** Edward can be compared to Raphael Solano in ''Series/JaneTheVirgin''. Like Edward, he is the Veronica to Michael's Betty, as Edward is the Veronica to Jacob's Betty. They both have the same callous, self-pitying attitude, and families a touch on the bloodthirsty side (in that, Raphael's mother and stepmother are both crime lords). What makes this Hilarious In Hindsight? They share a German voice actor!

** The telepathic conversation between the wolves in ''Breaking Dawn Part 1'' is poorly translated. You'd expect one of them to suddenly cry out, "[[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} Squirrel!]]"

** Jessica, also from the movies. Being played by Anna Kendrick doesn't hurt.

** Jessica, also from Bella's human friends, who seem like the movies. Being played by Anna Kendrick doesn't hurt.sort of people you genuinely want to hang out with.

*** This goes for all vampires. They seem to utterly lack the capacity for critical thinking and the reader always catches on to what is going on and understands who or what is behind something before the allegedly super intelligent meyerpires do. Furthermore when faced with a threat (as for instance finding out that the volturi are coming in ''Breaking Dawn'') they react by freezing up and showing no signs of doing any thinking for several hours, as if their brains cannot process stressful information very easily.

%%** Through most of the story the biggest obstacle to Edward and Bella being together is Edward himself; Edward's family instantly loves Bella and goes out of their way to be supportive of the relationship, Bella's dad fluctuates between approving and disapproving but even when he disapproves does little more than grumble under his breath about it. There are very few actual obstacles in the way of the relationship and most of them are ones that Edward creates by being needlessly angsty and melodramatic. All of Edward's fears about how being with him could be bad for Bella are eventually proven groundless and even before they are none of the other vampires seem to share them (which makes me wonder how he developed those fears in the first place) and whenever he actually leaves Bella it's always entirely of his own volition and for reasons that are entirely his own.
