Default Wait a minute!!!

So I'm writing this Twilight fan-fic, and I got to thinking. Jasper has long hair, right? At least that was my understanding... and so if he was in the army then they would have chopped off all his hair before he went to war because that's just what the army does. So, if he was changed during war in the army, how is it possible that he has long hair as a vamp? Or is hair another exception to Stephenie Meyer's rule of vampires (the first might be too graphic to post but it starts with a c and ends in men....)?

Nice little word pun there.

And I guess so . . . or S.M. just overlooked details like that.

Haha, yea. I love Twilight and all, but I wish she had made a slightly more foolproof world.

I hated Twilight. Stephanie Meyer is not a good writer. It's an original idea ( a little like Pocahantas or Avatar) but she didn't present it well.

It was during the Civil War. The Confeds were desperate for recruits and didn't really have any uniforms let alone take the time to crop someone's hair :P I thought Jasper had medium length hair *shrugs* Alice has short hair because she was shaved bald at a mental asylum and her hair was in the growing process when she was transformed.

Who gives a monkey about Stephenie Meyer's writing? I mean, it's not exactly amazing. I hate it mostly because everyone else loves it

Exactly. she tries to make them detailed and action packed, but it just sounds so fake. Yes, I know it is fiction, but she could have researched more.

I agree entirely. It's very original, but the presentation is a little cheesy.

I know, it just sounds so fake. I agree. I couldn't really feel like I was in the book, like with other books like Watership Down.

Did you know...that a man who put this sign (refering to Watership Down):

'You've read the book. Seen the film. Now eat the cast!'

Outside his pie shop got really told off?!!
