What passage, plot twist or literary crime in the Twilight Series do you absolutely love to hate?
Have you ever heard of anything so hilariously repulsive it made you pee your pants laughing and projectile vomit, all at the same time?
Two weeks ago, I was chatting with Sassenach Wench about the disaster that was "Breaking Dawn". She was graciously listening (again) to my requisite rant about how Stephenie Meyer should be stoned for her sorry excuse for a honeymoon scene, when SW reminded me of a passage so repulsive, so vile, so OOC, as to be uproarious and offensive and nauseating, all at once. She then pointed me to said passage, which appears on p. 723 in "Breaking Dawn" from Bella's point of view. Jacob is taking Renesmee to safety and Edward and Bella are saying goodbye:
"You're the only one I could ever trust her with," I murmured to him. "If you didn't love her so much, I could never bear this. I know you can protect her, Jacob."
He whined again, and dipped his head to butt it against my shoulder.
"I know," I whispered, "I love you too, Jake. You'll always be my best man."
A tear the size of a baseball rolled into the russet fur beneath his eye.
Edward leaned his head against the same shoulder where he'd placed Renesmee.
"Goodbye, Jacob, my brother...my son."
After I caught my breath from laughing, assured my husband that I wasn't having a seizure, and regained the ability to type, SW and I chatted on about the horrible--horrible--crimes of character and (what should have been) canon committed by SM.
The one above is my new favorite passage from the Twilight series that I love to hate. My question for you: what's yours?
