Breaking Dawn...

Once again, I just don't understand... There are so many angry people in the world. That I understand. I do. There are terrible things happening everyday. It's so hard. But my God, for someone as sensitive as me, the anger that occurs over things like this actually makes me sick.

But maybe it's because I just don't understand. Because I liked it. In fact, I loved it at times. That's not to say that things didn't totally catch me off guard. Still, I'm to the point where I just can't accept the general reaction (even though, I have to). I don't understand why people are so upset...

It ends happily? And this upsets people why...? Because they're not happy? Hey, guess what? *Raises hand* Totally not happy over here. :( In fact, miserable on a pretty much daily basis.

I have no problem with a difference of opinion, in general. I'm upset purely with the way so many people reacted negatively to a happy ending in Breaking Dawn (and Deathly Hallows, for that matter), because it's sucking the soul out of me. I'm too sensitive, I know. But so much negativity takes a toll on me.

*Sighs* I'm not really trying to change anything. I know I don't have that power anyways. I'm not even ready to talk about the book itself (if anyone even cares). I'm just too drained now. For now, I'll just say that I liked it. Of course, I did. I like most things. I have the ability of liking so many things. And it's a gift. Honestly, it is. I'm so, so grateful to not be someone on the other side. Someone who rarely enjoys anything. This is so much better.

But I will say this on another issue reguarding the book... if the eventual romance of Jacob/Renesmee (By the way, I didn't mind that name either. Even though I can't spell it! Take that!) upsets or digusts you, never, ever read my Timeline universe. Just don't. Because while I feel it's assumed that Jacob will wait until Nessie has reached her full maturity to change his relationship with her, some of my characters will certainly not. I will most certainly push the envelope, as it were, on "acceptable" soulmates in more ways than that. And there is a quite a similar circumstance with a daughter of a former loved one.

Well, there you are... that's your warning. Not that you'd need it.

So, I'll leave with an actual review of the book that I agree with. And just say again how sorry I feel for those who dislike things so much. And if anyone feels I'm silly (or worse) for enjoying things so much, I'll just say I know who wins out in the end. ^_^

By the way, remind me to never write this upset while so tired again. Thanks.
