Top 5 ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ Memes

This month is the nine year anniversary of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, and the eight year anniversary of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.  In honor of these two movies, here are some memes that are just too good not to share.

 

 

1. Not really a bad example

Okay, so this movie does shed some light on teen pregnancy in an unrealistic way. We are already confused as to how a dead vampire can produce sperm, but is Bella staying a size two unrealistic? She barely ate while pregnant and Renesmee was basically killing her so of course she’s a size 2! As for her growing at rapid speed, she’s half vampire, and that in itself is confusing. But again, how is Edward able to produce sperm?

 

2. The Coach from Mean Girls was right!

Bella is a special case, considering she was carrying a half vampire baby in her fragile human body. Which was Bella’s choice to die so she could finally become a vampire. So, if you get pregnant by a vampire, then this will happen.

 

3. Not Impressed

Renesmee does not look impressed by Bella when she first lays eyes on her. You know, after her mother risked her life just to give birth to her, Renesmee could care less, but that’s okay because Bella is alive and a vampire like she wanted, but you know Renesmee just doesn’t care.

 

 

4. Funny!

This should have been a real scene! The anger Jacob was going through with Bella marrying Edward angered him enough to actually say something like this. Too bad he didn’t, but at least we have this meme.

 

5. Nothing happens in Forks

All of those vampires showed up, we thought there was this huge battle, turns out its just one of Alice’s visions. At least we got some false alarm action. Those vampires traveled all that way for nothing! Oh well, they’ve been alive long enough to know not every vacation is exciting.

007 Creator Ian Fleming’s Letters to Wife to Be Auctioned

The late Ian Fleming is best known for creating the James Bond novel series. Writing twelve novels in the series and two short story collections, the series would continue on after his death with new writers as well as the hugely successful 007 film series. How Fleming created Bond, and how his own life mirrored his works, are set to be revealed.

British auctioneering corporation Sotheby’s will be selling more than 160 letters between Ian Fleming and his wife Ann Charteris. These letters shed light on their tumultuous relationship, from its beginnings as an affair while Ann was still married to its bitter end. Intimate details of their marriage include the death of their first child, the sado-masochistic elements of their affair, and the resentment Ian had over Ann’s wealthy upbringing and upper-class status.

The letters also reveal some of the inspirations for Fleming’s Bond novels. For example, anxiety over his impending marriage is said to be the reason Fleming wrote the first 007 book, Casino Royale:

 

It is no coincidence that Ian wrote his first Bond novel in the same year they married, both as an outlet for his libido and imagination, and also in an attempt to make money for a woman who was used to being unthinkingly rich.

 

The letters will go on sale in December in London.
