Saturday Versus: Stark vs. Edward Cullen

2 comments:
 
I love Saturdays, but it just so happens that I feel really bad about not blogging yesterday. I went to a Dodger's game yesterday. Last I knew, they were winning. On the ride back, I was listening to my iPod and not the radio, so I don't know what the final score was. Oh, well. It was worth it just for a Dodger dog. That was all I really wanted. ;)

Since it's Saturday, I'm going to start my Saturday versus. I am completely obsessed with Burned by PC and Kristin Cast. To be more specific, I'm in love with this particular character. His name is Stark. So, let's do a people versus today. Stark versus Edward Cullen. I'm sure you all know who he is.

So here's the facts:

Edward Cullen: He is a sparkly vampire. He drinks animal blood. He hates werewolves, until he starts to think they're okay. He's saved Bella from vampires multiple times. He claims to love Bella. He becomes friends with Seth and Jacob, way near the end. He can reads everybody's mind, except Bella's. This should be considered a SPOILER!, but it's way too predictable: He turns Bella into a vampire.

BACKGROUND INFO: In the House of Night (HoN) series, the goddess Nyx marks you. This makes you a vampyre fledgling. When you're marked, you have the outline of a sapphire crescent moon. When you become a true vampyre, the crescent moon fills in and you get tattooes and stuff. Well, you can die if your body rejects the Change. It turns out the you can undie after that. Instead of sapphire, your crescent moon becomes red. This makes you a red fledgling. Odds are, you will lose some of your humnaity. Later on, you can become a red vampyre. 

Stark: He is a red vampyre. He is Zoey's Warrior (Zoey is a High Priestess for Nyx. She is also the main character.) He would do anything for her. (FACT! Not opinion.) He has a gift/curse: he can hit anything he aims at with a bow and arrow. As it turns out, he doesn't even need to know what it is that he wants to hit. It's complicated, and has caused a bit of trouble. He lost his humanity when he became a red fledgling. When Zoey comes back to try and save him, he makes and Oath to be her Warrior. He gets his humanity back and becomes a red fledgling.

The opinions:

Edward Cullen: He is stupid. I really think he is. Through the first three books, he doesn't want to change Bella. In the last one, he's afraid to lose her, so he turns her into a vampire. SELFISH! He also hates werewolves. You can't hate werewolves and expect me to like you. Unless you're a real person. Or course, he starts to tolerate them, but it was too late. Also, he is overprotective. Who likes that? It's really annoying. Seriously, give her some SPACE! Have you ever heard this quote:
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
It's from the Bible, as far as I know. I do not find this to describe Edward and Bella. Their relationship is too... physical. That's why I say "He claims to love Bella."

Stark: I will admit that I'm in love with him. That really affects (effects?) how I think of him. Not really, though. After he lost his humanity, he was a jerk. He really was. I didn't lose faith in him, though. I'm really glad Zoey didn't either. He's cocky, funny, sarcastic. And he has depth. I really love that. He's not just surface. He's not completely open. You really have to get to know him. He does love Zoey. I don't know why. What's so great about her? Guys are always falling for her. Weird. Anyways, he really does love her. He would do anything for her. God, I love him. It hurts to see him so heartbroken... But I won't ruin it for you, especially if you actually plan on reading it or something. It's a really great YA series.

I know I didn't mention everything. I'm mostly putting my own opinion into everything. I'm sorry about that. Hopefully, you at least know a bit about Edward. My Stark info is more accurate. I <3 p="" stark="">
Anyways:

Which side are you on?
Have a good writing day!
