Twilosophy of Sad Endings

Dear Twilight and your readers,

On the heels of a the season finale of Dexter last night I got to thinking about sad endings and how no one’s immune to them even vampires and werewolves and their human friends. We all know how the Twilight saga ends and whether Bella ends up with who you want or how it all happens it’s not without it’s sad moments much like Dexter. He loses her

Jacob and Bella – *sigh* I know most of you ladies are Team Edward but can we please have a moment for what could have been for Bella and Jacob. If it wasn’t for that blasted Mercedes in the rear view mirror and maybe a few more months they could have ended up together in a relationship that started as friends and grew to much more. I think I *sigh* for Jacob because we’ve all been the second choice at some point and that’s painful. We know the outcome is for the best but it doesn’t make it any less of a sad ending.

Edward leaves Bella – duh.

They're NOT bears... or happy endings

Harry Clearwater dies – While Bella’s off being an emo teenager and cliff jumping for attention poor Harry Clearwater is having a fat heart attack which leaves Sue without a husband (cue Charlie), Charlie without a BFF and Leah and Seth without a Dad not to mention the tribe without one of it’s leaders. But really no kid should lose their parent especially when they’re going through crazy stuff like turning into a werewolf because of their anger control issues and not to mention a little something called the werewolf gene. We love ya Clearwater family!

The Leah, Sam and Emily love triangle – What a mess this one is. Thanks a lot to the magic of imprinting Leah loses her boyfriend to HER COUSIN (oh no she’s DIDN’T!) and Emily gets her face all mangled because Sam didn’t know WTF was happening to him. THEN Leah is forced to run patrols around the Cullen house in a cruel twist of fate Leah becomes a werewolf herself and has to hear ALL of Sam’s dirty boy thoughts about Emily AND THEN because Jacob refuses to leave Bella and eventually Renesmee she has to run what seems like 50 chapters worth of patrols around the Cullen house meaning she has to eat rare meat. OH THE HUMANITY!

Obviously these girls lost a bet

Mike Newton – No one’s Team Mike Newton, even though he could get your 15% off on those rad hiking boots at Newton Outfitters. Let’s all have a moment for Mike. We’ve definitely all been the Jacob where it just didn’t work out but what about never even leaving the bench.

And of course, poor Buttcrack Santa. The guy seemed like a recovering alcoholic who loved bringing joy to Children in the Forks area during Christmas and how is he repaid? By getting offed in the the dingy boat marina by some bored nomadic vampires with meth face (James).

Charlie and Renee – We’ll never know what really happened with Charlie and Renee since this isn’t their story but we do know it’s tragic that Charlie would lose his daughter to a flaky Mom who got bored of living in Forks. Sure, it’s not the glamourous metropolis that Phoenix, Arizona is but you’re married to the copstache, the built in Halloween costume possibilities are reason enough to stay. Let alone your DAUGHTER.

Oh sad moments… you make me sadder. But that’s part of the charm of Twilight and why we love it, right? Who can’t identify with sad moments? As for that Dexter finale???? EPIC SAD FACE.

What other sad moments did I miss? Did you watch the Dexter finale? Will you hold me?

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

  • Stacey

    The Dexter finale made me sad too, Moon! Poor Dex! But how great was Deb?

    You know what made me sad? Poor Laurent. How sad is it being the only black man in the book or the movies. Only to be killed off for listening to Victoria’s ridiculous plans.

    No wait! There’s movie Tyler. That poor kid didn’t even make it into the sequels. Luckily it looks like Breaking Dawn is bringing the diversity. Maybe they’ll invite him to the wedding?

    Let’s not forget poor Jane. Spending eternity as a grumpy face preteen? No wonder she likes making people cower in pain. A kid has got to find her fun somewhere!

    Oh and Aro and his boys…those hairstyles are so renaissance. The lack of wardrobe updating makes me weep.

    I am so just joking about this…well except for the diversity. Twilight is kind of like Friends, until the let Aisha Tyler on for those like 6 episodes.

    • Anonymous

      I do have a curiously sad spot for Laurent, not because of diversity, just that he wasn’t all that bad, he kinda liked the Cullens and felt bad about James being such a douchey maniac. He thought he would be doing Bella a favor by him killing her instead of Victoria, no bad feelings. Besides he has the best accent.

      • TeamSeth

        Yeah, Laurent was pretty good all in all. Besides, if he’d not been hungry when he stumbled upon Bella, he would’ve just gone back to Irina and then the whole anticlimatic ending wouldn’t have happened.

        And I thought that Laurent was a super pale french dude with long black hair in the book?

        • Anonymous

          You are right my dear, he wasn’t a black guy in the book.

          In the book Laurant was described as; tall, olive-toned skin (under his chalky parlor of course), medium build and glossy, cropped black hair.

          I too (given his name) took him as a French dude.

        • Anonymous

          Didn’t think of that–if the wolves hadn’t killed him, Irina wouldn’t have been so pissed off and we could have avoided that little misunderstanding with the Volturi!

  • GeminiGypsy

    It’s also going to be sad when Breaking Dawn comes out in movie form- it’s going to be over! No more crazy twi-fanatics, but also no more opportunities for me to obsess over Twilight :'( I’ll still continue to re-read the series every so often, but I think everthing will cool down majorly.

  • ThePlaneFriend

    A few more sad things:

    Diego and BREE–I think it would suck to fall in love for one DAY and then die after being tortured.

    Edward–having to live through Jacob’s replay of the after-tent-scene kiss–the day after he finally got Bella to agree to marry him.

    Nahuel–having to live with knowing he killed his mother…and if he was really falling for Nessie, also losing the girl of his dreams (b/c c’mon, Stephenie wouldn’t have Nessie and Nahuel hook up after putting him through all that angst over Bella, would she?)

    Emmet–b/c who cares how pretty she is, he has to put up with Rosalie.

    And, finally, us–b/c Midnight Sun and/or the Nessie/Leah narrated sequel to the saga probably aren’t going to be finished for a LONG, LONG time.

    • Anonymous

      Bree = sad for sure. I think even SM said that she wished she had written a different ending for her.

    • ThePlaneFriend

      Oops, in the Nahuel section, I meant that SM wouldn’t put Jacob through all that just to lose Nessie too. Sorry, can’t type.

    I think all those clueless tourists heading into the jaws of the Volturi (literally) was pretty heartbreaking. Didn’t they even show some kids in the movie? Or how about Jasper killing that kid in the flashback scene in Eclipse? Ack. Kids getting hurt gets me every time.

    Speaking of kids, we named our little boy Dexter right about the same time the series came out (we were not aware of the series). We have had to explain more than a few times that no, he was not named after a benevolent serial killer, but rather, my husband’s grandfather.

    • Stacey

      Ha Ha Ha! That is awesome. Also a great name, television show or not!

      A friend of mine texted me that she met a 2 year old named “Cullen”. She said she had to bite her tongue to keep from asking the parents if they were Twilight fans. That’s a cute name too…but their timing seems a little more like they are fans.

      Afternoon everyone! I too cannot stand anything that hurts children and I still CANNOT watch those poor tourists (I always feel like I would be one of them wanting to see the cool stuff while on vacation and ending up in the Volturi “dining room”, cause that is how my luck goes lol)! STILL waiting to see Eclipse! The wait is torture!!! Hope all is well in your world! Hugs!!

      That little girl who smiles and points at ‘Sparkles’ in NM movie, that was so sad. Damn you Edward, the only way I can forgive him is if he comes and does my ironing while I sleep.

        I can think of a few more things he can do for my forgiveness,

  • Anonymous

    Let’s all have a moment of silence for the tragedy that is Marcus and Didyme, lost in the triangle of Aro’s jealousy and manipulations. Who knows maybe it was a family trait and poor Aro was just cutting his loses. Whether Marcus lost his true love or was caught under the influence of Didyme we’ll never know. To me Marcus would have been Edwards future minus a lot of wrinkled frown lines. </3
    On the Human front, how about poor Lauren, clearly the girl's envy was just a cry for the love she never received from her father..okay I'm reacting there, but it could happen. What did Stephanie tell us about her life after twilight? She had a failed modeling career.
    Chief Billy Black, single dad with a set of twins and a son. His sorrow at the loss of his wife, his daughters abandoning him and his son cursed/blessed with the blood line but refused to take the Alpha roll. He must sit alone in his wheel chair crying over losing Sue to Charlie who seemed to have bonded over having freak children. Poor Poor Billy.

        I remember that too…. and since I but rarely look at another Twilight site any longer (it’s just you LTT) I would guess it was here…. perhaps one of the clips Moon & UC posted with their discussions with Stephenie when they got to meet her…. because for some reason my memory is that I can “hear” Stephenie’s voice explaining the story, it’s not text…. hmmm that sounds odd doesn’t it?

          Nope, doesn’t sound odd. I think you’re right. That’s actually how I remember it, too. I just wrote “read” not “heard,” I’m not sure why.

            Yep, I but rarely check another site. Occasionally Stephenie’s or maybe one or two others if I am waiting for news or heard there’s good stuff on another site (that someone said here). :)

      Poor Fred! I want him to fall in love and have a happy ending because Bree and Diego couldn’t. Maybe Leah will imprint on him. I hope that we somehow hear about him again when Stephenie writes her sequels to the series.

      I mean, when she doesn’t write the sequels because there’s no way she could. Ever. Do that.

      • Anonymous

        That’s an interesting idea… Is it physically possible for a werewolf to imprint on a vampire? Nessie’s only half vamp, so that doesn’t count. Could Leah ever go for a full blooded (heh) vampire?

        • Anonymous

          That is a VERY good question.

          See, I thought not. But then Jacob imprinted on little Nessie and my reasonings went right out the window.

          However, Nessie IS different (understatement). I would bet that, say, Leah wouldn’t ever imprint on like Naheul (or another 1/2 vamp) but that any of the other wolf boys would have the possibility to imprint on say, one of Naheul’s sisters. And none would ever imprint on a full-vamp.

          The distinction? Glad you asked. :D

          Nessie is venom-less as are all of Naheul’s sisters, but no Naheul (why do I keep feeling like I’m spelling his name wrong). Since venom isn’t something that would change a wolf-boy/girl but kill them, I would bet that their imprinting would repel that person. Nessie can’t kill Jake with venom because she doesn’t have any.

          Just one theory….

          • Anonymous

            Excellently reasoned. I wonder if the venom is also what produces the smell? I don’t have my copy of BD, but I’m trying to remember the wolves’ reaction to Nahuel. Did he ‘smell’ like a vampire to them, with that supposedly sickly sweet odor?

          • Anonymous

            Question: (maybe this has been discussed on here before, I can’t remember)
            Has it been established that Leah can imprint at all?

            Because if the whole point of imprinting, as I seem to remember it, is an “evolutionary” mechanism to ensure that they will have strong offspring. So, if Leah can’t menstruate, (at least while she is shape-shifting on a regular basis) she can’t reproduce. So what would be the point of her imprinting at all? AND unless the vamp or half-vamp is an incubus like Edward, there would be no point of imprinting on one.

    I am always amazed when critics of Twilight say that “everything works out and no one sacrifices anything” by the end. Um, no. The series has some pretty dark moments. Maybe the series doesn’t ever end in a full-fledged bloodbath – aside from the tourists at the Volturi’s residence – but there are a lot of broken hearts and painful emotions and memories that the characters are left with. As mentioned, at the forefront are a lot of sad endings caused by Bella’s -erm- I won’t say the “c” word – (and I mean the word that ends in “hoices”) – the biggest example of course being that Bella had to give up a normal, happy life with Jacob, breaking his heart in the process, to be with Edward. I mean, imagine having that hanging over Edward’s head for the rest of his life. “Bella, I don’t feel like doing the dishes tonight. Do you mind if I wait til tomorrow?” – “Edward, No way! I became a vampire for you and am going to live for all eternity with you and our mutant offspring. The least you can do is do the dishes tonight!”

    • Stacey

      Somehow. I see Edward always doing the dishes. Always cleaning the house, his car, Bella’s blood stained clothes. Edward seems to be a little OCD. He probably cleaned Bella’s room every night while he ‘watched’ her sleep.

          For the record, if anyone wants to sneak into my house in the middle of the night and clean my bathroom/kitchen/bedroom or do the laundry/dishes/put up the Christmas tree, have at it. I don’t care if it’s creepy. Shut the door tight on the way out, because it has a tendency to blow open. Or use the window, whichever.

            I suppose it speaks to my current state as a pregnant mother of four kids under the age of six that, no, if I saw Edward sneaking in my window my first thought would be to direct him to the closet where all the cleaning supplies are and to ask him to keep it down, I’m reeeeal tired tonight.

      Normal? NORMAL? When did werewolves become normal? I mean, half the time he’s “got a vampire to kill.” No, just because she’s still human flesh and blood with beating heart and gets to eat Emily’s giant marionberry muffins everyday and gain 30 lbs a week does not make her life normal with Jacob.

        Hold on another minute… Jacob is a shapeshifter.

        And not to be the world’s biggest Twinerd or anything, but… if Bella had chosen Jacob, wouldn’t Edward and his family have moved away, thus saving the shapeshifterwolves from having to become, well, wolves forever? Wasn’t it explained that they’d go back to being normal people if there were no vampires around to force them to shift?

          What you say is true, well, sort of. Time to attempt an Twinerd-off (clears throat).
          Jacob would always have the gene, even if he didn’t have to turn anymore due to vampires being gone. In the book it explains that over time you can turn it off–control it. But only over time. That the wolves are quite a bit older when they can finally quit fursploding. It’s not a lifestyle choice, they have to work really hard at it. I don’t think I could define my life as normal if my baby was constantly in danger of a fursploding daddy.

          Also, the reason that they stay wolves isn’t because there are vampires in town, the reason they BECOME wolves is because there are vampires in town or nearby (Seattle). So, it cannot be fully argued that once the Cullens left town they’d quit being wolves. In fact, with only Victoria around, they start sprouting up like daisies, after all the Cullens had left town! Why then, with the Cullens around for a few years, did only Sam change, and only a year before?

          Lastly, I want to ask a question that I’ve always wondered. Stephenie, if you’re reading, feel free to pitch in. So based on the mythology, werewolves can kill vampires. However, as Caius is chagrined to learn in Breaking Dawn, the wolfpack we’ve come to know and love isn’t actually werewolves, they’re shapeshifters. Anyway, as such, they shapeshift into … wolves– right? I mean, it never says they shift into werewolves, yet they do? I’ve never understood this. Are we just supposed to infer that they are shifting into full on werewolves (and if so, wouldn’t the lunar cycle affect them like it does actual werewolves–those discussed as living in Europe before Cauis had them slaughtered — oh, another sad ending). So, what’s the deal, are they wolves (giant ones) or werewolves? Or are they werewolves with benefits?

            “Jacob would always have the gene, even if he didn’t have to turn anymore due to vampires being gone.” True. “In the book it explains that over time you can turn it off–control it.” Yes. I am sure Bella could have figured out a way to relax him…and help him control it by, uh, diverting his attention elsewhere.

            “Also, the reason that they stay wolves isn’t because there are vampires in town, the reason they BECOME wolves is because there are vampires in town or nearby (Seattle).” Bella and Jacob would have moved somewhere without vamps. Like sunny Southern California, perhaps.

            “Lastly, I want to ask a question that I’ve always wondered. Stephenie, if you’re reading, feel free to pitch in.” I’m glad someone just said what we’ve all been thinking since June.

            Personally, however, I like the werewolves with benefits theory.

            Well, if we go further with this, I think we’re going to have to define what we’re discussing. Because my argument was that she wouldn’t have a normal life with Jacob (vs. Edward), not that they could pull a Tim Gunn and ‘make it work.’

            The point was that regardless of whether or not there are vampires around, Jacob is already a wolf. (I will also point out, not on the topic of her having a normal life, but rather on the you wouldn’t have to change for me topic, that having to move cities because your werewolf hubs can’t be normal human would be considered change. She’d be dissing her dad, just like Renee did, and Jacob would be leaving his dad, just like his sisters both did! Sigh.)

            I definitely want to know what the answer to that question is!

          • Anonymous

            I am totally cool with not going further since I too have lost the gist of what we were discussing.

            I think the bottom line is that Bella = Not Normal.

            By the way, I know I often come off as all Team Jacoby around here, but in reality when I read the books I was every bit as in love with Edward – if not more – than Jacob. Jacob was a little messed up in the books and not always my cup of tea. I find myself sometimes confusing the heartwarming, well-built, meat patty, cuddly Alpacaness of TayTay Jake in the movie with the kind and friendly yet sort of delusional Jake in the books. Meanwhile Edward in the books was all Greek God Apollo Dreamboat, sensitive and concerned, even if he was a bit stalkerish, whereas most of the time in the movies (and don’t come after me with pitchforks, LTRers,) Ron-ward is just simply too white makeup-y angsty for my taste. But that’s a whole other discussion. My point here is to add the disclaimer that I’m all for book Bella ending up with book Edward.

          • TeamSeth

            You and I see eye-to-eye on Edward and Rob here. Though, I never saw him as Apollo… I think that’d be reserved for the one who is described as being his own sun.

            Though, Tay doesn’t ‘do it’ for me, though kitkat’s avi is pretty hot, not gonna lie. And book Jake was rad until he fursploded into a moody mess. Oh well.

            Doesn’t it say somewhere that if Taha Aki had chosen some other animal at first, they would all be that animal? So if he had chosen a deer or something, we would all be in love with shapeshifting deer? If I recall correctly, it was their magic that allowed them to be able to destroy the vampires, and a stroke of luck that they are wolves.

          • TeamSeth

            Yes, it does say that, or they said that in the film anyway. I kind of wish they were deer… or snow owls… Then it’d be like Harry Potter’s patronus and/or Hedwig! :)

            Or, better yet, as a reference to the whole owl/foresting saga years ago up here, if they shapeshifted into the Northern Spotted Owl, which was severely threatened due to habitat destruction in the Olympic peninsula. Er, wow, I’m a nerd. But that’d be so rad if they did the vampire attack with their giant talons and had these epic screeches. Then when Jake hung out with Bella he could chill on her forearm and let out a cute little owl ‘hoo’. Sigh… if only.

      Normal? NORMAL? When did werewolves become normal? I mean, half the time he’s “got a vampire to kill.” No, just because she’s still human flesh and blood with beating heart and gets to eat Emily’s giant marionberry muffins everyday and gain 30 lbs a week does not make her life normal with Jacob.

    Wow! Moon, you just made me realize that Bella and Leah COULD be stepsisters, because Bella saw a connection at Christmas between Charlie and Sue in BD, right? Hmm…I’ve never thought about it that far.
    Ugh, I’m in dire need of some Twilight side stories…especially a Jacob/Renesmee series!!

    Aren’t we all grieving for Dexter’s ‘broken heart? (“Don’t go” *tears*) Lumen’s flaky ass better come back preferably knocked up with a sociopathic/ born to kill offspring!! UGH!!! Damn her! But like how Edward left, somehow I think we’ll see her again. Sad Twi-ness: Rosalie is gang raped/ Edwards totally disses Tonya/Esme suffered a miscarriage/ Jasper was Maria’s love slave/ Bree Tanner RIP/ Victoria played Riley like a harp from hell ( VICTORIAAAAA!!!!)/I think there was an illusion to a possible Billy/Sue/Charlie love twi-angle, where Billy comes up short/Two Sisters watch another sister die… blown!/Oh yeah and one of those guards Alec or somebody, obviously has some unrequited lust for Bella.
    Yes, Moon I’ll hold you, but if for some reason Michael C. Hall needs to be held at the same time, you’re to the curb…jk…but seriously.! LOL!!! Loves the post!

    • Anonymous

      Hmmm, unrequited lust for Bella from a guard? That sounds vaguely familiar.

      If I remember correctly, Alec and Jane were going to be burned at the stake for being witches, when Aro “rescued” them by making them vamps. I thought that was a rather sad story.

    • TeamSeth

      It was Felix. (not that I’m annoyed they cut out the winking scene from NM or anything… why would I be annoyed that they didn’t let me see Daniel Cudmore wink and smirk? Yeah. I’d never be annoyed about that. eff you summit.)

          sigh. Sadly, no, there was never that scene and it was deleted (unlike the friggin epically awesome Angela/Bella graduation announcements scene! It couldn’t ruin the flow, David! It simply could not.) No, that scene is only in the book… But I will continue to imagine Daniel winking at me, not in vampire makeup, while we’re at Canucks vs. Penguins game cuddling center ice seats. Er, wait.

          • TeamSeth

            cuddling in center ice seats… not cuddling seats. That’d be weird.

            You never know! It might be one of the scenes they cut that they never talked about. Summit reads LTT. They’ll add it to their list to tack on to the “full series package” features.

            (Adds more coins to piggy bank…)

          • TeamSeth

            embarrassing moment: I do know because in all of Daniel Cudmore’s interviews, he talks about how he decided to play the role, and someone asks why he didn’t take the winking direction like in the book, and he says something like he doesn’t think Felix would do that because Felix was really just trying to show his dominance over Bella. What he wanted to say was that he was too in love with me to be able to flirt with anyone else, even on camera ;)

      • blackgirltwihard

        LMAO!!! Yeah I came back up here to day to write that it was Felix. all these BD names …I loose track. Re-listening to it @ work today …CANNOT WAIT FOR ARO in BD2..Sheen will be as flawless as ever. It was as if he was MADE to play ARO!!!

        • TeamSeth

          Seriously on the Sheen! I feel like he may be the only person who read his character’s lines in the book because he actually matches Aro’s diction and pacing to the precise level. When I reread the epic ending that was as anticlimatic as Bella’s attempt at sexy times in Edward’s room, I was like, “ZOMG MICHAEL I LOVE YOU!” and I could completely imagine him rocking all of those lines.

    Hmm, I had never really thought about the many sad endings in the series. I guess I was just so focused on the main trio that I didn’t give anyone else’s happiness or lack thereof much thought.

    All this Dexter talk has got me itching to watch again. I only got through Season 2 on my instant Netflix account. But I know someone who owns seasons 3 & 4. Gotta borrow them and watch!

    I have to say I’ve been super disappointed in Dexter this season and really couldn’t stand Julia Stiles’s acting. Just sayin. It was a sad ending for Dexter, but also rather tidy and hard to believe that he got off like that from Quinn. The whole season was rather…meh for me.

    With regard to sad Twi endings, my biggest regret is that Riley had to die and now we don’t get any more Xavier…oh heyyyyy….

    Seriously. I just got the Eclipse DVD yesterday and he was definitely the highlight for me this time. Hot sauce.

          FN Love Sheen! wonder if he’ll screw up Renessme’s name in BD2 “Hellllooooo, little-girl-whose-name-I-can’t-pronounce” LOVE HIM!!!! (Also sad that he gives Bella one of the crown jewels on a rope and she’s like “Uh…er…Thanks”)

          • TeamSeth

            and she’s like “Uh…er…Thanks”

            Not just that, but he compliments her on her immortality AND says that he chose that jewel because it would look good on her. He was being thoughtful being letting his gang slaughter her and all her friends and family! I mean, sheesh Bella, even if you don’t like the gift, in the words of ghostward, Lie better.

        Yeah, I kind of want Dexter to get caught and go to prison or have to go on the run or something. It just seems implausible that Quinn wouldn’t tell anybody that he’s who Liddy was spying on and that he’d just let it go. Even if he loves Deb. He pretty much knows that Dexter killed a cop for crissakes. Not. Buying. It.

    Another sad ending: the Romanian curmudgeons! They first get their throne stolen by the Italians — rude! — and then when they may get to have their revenge, or even a taste of it, it’s this entirely anticlimatic nothingness. They’re robbed of any sense of dignity coming out of that conflict of impermeable tension. So unfair.
