I was thinking about what makes people like the Cullens more than the nomadic vampires from Twilight. I was thinking about it because I was watching the extras from the 2 disc DVD set. Anyway, in the extra that I watched talked about the vampires. The point that was brought up was that when it comes to the vampires in Twilight series and what they do, it all boils down to choices. With the nomadic vampires, they embrace who and what they are, by drinking human blood and going anywhere and everywhere that they need to go. The Cullens, on the other hand, abstain from drinking human blood and live in just one place. The choices basically boils down to whether or not you want to conform, like the nomadic vampires, or be rebellious, like the Cullens. So, in that sense, I can see why people like the Cullens more than the nomadic vampires, and not to mention, the series as a whole because of the romance factor. Personally, I don’t like the Cullens in all of their choices, except one. Well, first off, the one choice that I don’t mind is that they don’t drink human blood. Anyway, the main reason that I don’t like the Cullens overall is that they’re trying to be humans when they’re not humans anymore. In essence, they’re trying to be something that they’re not. I think I would have liked the Cullens more if they were more in the middle ground. What I mean is that they can maintain their diet of animal blood instead of human blood, but they should also realize that they can’t really change the fact that they’re vampires and not humans. Anyway, that’s just my opinion.

As you guys know, I’m a Vampire Chronicles and Twilight fan. Anyway, with New Moon coming out in theaters in November and the trailer being everywhere, that kinda made me think about what the Cullens practice. Well, I find it weird for me that in the Vampire Chronicles, I don’t like Lestat because he’s not very human like, in terms of drinking human blood, even though he drinks the evildoer’s blood. And yet, I like Louis because he didn’t drink until he absolutely needed to. But when it comes to Twilight, I don’t particularly care for the Cullens as much as I like James. Well, at least in terms of drinking blood. I find it very ironic because in one vampire series, I like the “vegetarian” vampire and not the “carnivore” vampire. And yet, in the other series, I don’t like the “vegetarian” vampires while I like the “carnivore” vampire.
