At first,I was COMPLETELY anti-Jacob because of the manipulative way he tries to win Bellas heart.But,after careful analysis of the facts,I am Switzerland and have come to a new conclusion. Bella, whether she is diliberately trying to be or not, is the true temptress of the Twilight Saga. And Edward and Jacob are her primary victims.(I have decided to change charactorization of Bella from "Villain" to "Temptress" because there are some that think "Villain" is too Harsh. And I don't think ANYONE can deny that "Temptress" fits her perfectly

Like all Temptress',Bella is a master manipulator(Not Jacob as I originally thought). She leads Jacob on like a little puppy(no pun intended lol) when she knows shes going to choose Edward in the end. And she dangles her So-called "friendship" with Jacob in front of Edwards face. It's cruel!!! And let's be honest. We all know its not JUST a friendship.In reality,it's an emotional affair.There are more ways to cheat than just physically.If you think about it,an emotional affair is worse. Atleast there is no REAL love behind a physical affair.There are those of you out there that would disagree that it is an emotional affair.My question to those people is-when does it go from a simple friendship to emotional infidelity?Where is the line drawn?if what Bella does with Jacob is not being emotionally unfaithful to Edward,then what is??I know she was emotionally vulnerable when Edward left and was looking for a shoulder to cry on.But, that doesnt give her the right to push the boundaries of her casual friendship with Jacob.I find it very interesting when women complain about how they are portrayed as weak and vulnerable in movies,books etc.Yet when something like this happens,they use that same vulnerability to justify their actions--How convenient!(now,I am not talking about ALL women. I don't want to receive threatening emails lol.But,lets face it,some women do that. And Bella is the perfect example)She manipulates Jacob by asking him to fix the bikes.(I say "manipulates" because she knew EXACTLY what she was doing when she brought those bikes to him. Like he was going to say no? Yeah right. She knew he was looking for any opportunity he could to spend time with her in order to get her to love him and she used that to her advantage.Even though she had no intention of returning those feelings. That is calculated, pre-meditated manipulation)This only fuels his ego and his determination to get her to fall in love with him.And YET,she wants him to quit trying to win her over!! I mean make up your friggin mind, Bella!!

Side note: This is what is called a "Double Standard.Which means that when a girl/woman does something like this,no one says anything.But If a guy would do something like this,it's wrong.If this was a guy treating 2 GIRLS the way Bella treats Edward and Jacob,every woman out there would want that guy crucified no matter what his excuse was-be honest ladies)

Not to mention all the other people she manipulates to get her way-The Cullens and The Blacks. And she just keeps her mom,Charlie and her friends in the dark altogether. True,she is trying to keep them safe by hiding everything from them.But that's not her only reason. She also knows that if Charlie and Rene knew about what was going on, they would do everything in their parental rights (and maybe even BEYOND their parental rights)to keep her safe and as far away from that hostile and dangerous environment as possible.(Which should have probably happend to begin with.But I understand that there would have been no Twilight Saga if that did happen)

Now, lets talk about the worst thing Bella does to Edward and the main reason I call her a true temptress. Unlike other vampire stories in which the vampire is trying to corrupt the human, BELLA is trying to corrupt Edward by making him betray his morals and values and everything the Cullens stand for by seducing him into sleeping with her before marriage and turn her into a vampire.(These are the very values that prove to Bella that Edward still has a soul and she is asking him to just go against them!!!! She even admits to doing this at one point in the story! But does that stop her from doing it? Absolutely not!!! She's like a really bad Catholic who goes to confession on Sunday and then goes out the next day and does the same things she confessed the day before lol )So,as I said,whether Bella is diliberately trying to be the Temptress or not, she has all the charactor traits OF a temptress.Including manipulation and corruption.Yes,shes only human.However,Even humans can be selfish and manipulative.Is that REALLY an excuse???

She only became the "heroine" AFTER she had gotten everything SHE wanted. It was only till after she was turned into a vampire and had Renesmee that she finally discovered the TRUE meaning of love and heroism-selflessness. That's when the motherly instinct kicked in and she was willing to do ANYTHING to keep her child safe.Finally she she started thinking about someone other than herself. Ironically,she had to become a vampire to go from Temptress to Heroine.I say it's ironic because being a temptress is usually a charactoristic of a female vampire not a 17 yr old human girl. In Bella's case,it is quite the opposite haha

Accepted. And,likewise:-)I'm just trying to think like a concerned,responsible parent,here.Even though I am 27,with no children. If I did have children,I would feel the exact same way as I do now.Maybe even more so

It's very scary being a parent. I was a single parent also, but I did ok by trying to set an example.

To be honest my daughter thought the whole story line was creepy

Comment by TwilightTrinity AKA Shaun on March 27, 2011 at 6:03pm
hmm,Did she read the whole saga?I'm curious as to what she might think about this blog.I would love to hear her thoughts
Comment by TwilightTrinity AKA Shaun on March 27, 2011 at 6:10pm
All differences of opinions aside--you do understand where I am coming from with this right?
Comment by Granny Fairy on March 27, 2011 at 6:11pm
No. She's quite set aganist the whole saga.  She was very chreeped out over the watching her sleep and Bella being flattered.
Comment by TwilightTrinity AKA Shaun on March 27, 2011 at 8:32pm
lol Well,Like I said,I am sure he acknowledged the fact that it was creepy because he did stop
Comment by TwilightTrinity AKA Shaun on March 27, 2011 at 8:42pm
Granny,Not that I am trying to harp on the subject here.But I just wanted to inform you on the Websters Dictionary definition of "Temptress"-a woman who sets out to allure or seduce a man or men; seductress. Now,given that informations,can you honestly tell me that this is not what Bella does to both Jacob and Edward(intentionally or not)?
Comment by Granny Fairy on March 27, 2011 at 8:50pm
Well, actually...he didn't stop cause he still spent 'almost every  night" in her room.  I've read all the books umteen times as well as listening to them on my iPod.  LOL.
Comment by Granny Fairy on March 27, 2011 at 8:52pm
Are you referring to the fact that Bella wanted to have sex with Robert while she was still human, why she was still "her"??
Comment by TwilightTrinity AKA Shaun on March 27, 2011 at 8:53pm
Alright,so he didnt stop. But,she knew about it and she didnt have a problem with it. So,I think calling him a "stalker"(which,I think you did,or someone else did) is just as unfair as calling Bella a temptress.
