Dear Melissa Rosenburg... This is for you.

With the recent Eclipse clips/pictures that have been released, I decided that I have been too quiet. I facebooked Melissa's page. Unfortunately, I had to "like" the page.

Anyways, I thought I'd share what I posted. Just in case anyone was interested. I'm still trying to cool off, so bear with me :)
...

I'm commenting to defend the books...

Edward saying "It's not all about me"... IT'S EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM!

Page 276 of Eclipse:

Edward: "It's not that you were you were...more eager for immortality itself than for just me?"

Bella: "Edward. There's no point in forever without you. I wouldn'y want one day without you."

Honestly. It's plain as day. You can't change the characters. You can't change the story. Stop trying to make Bella choose. There was NEVER a choice. It was always Edward. You're preference for Jacob (AND RILEY) is leaknig through your writing. I may be one of the only people responding on your wall, but there are BUTTLOADS of angry Edward and Bella fans. You butchered their relationship and their happy relationship isn't shown in the movies at all! I have much more to say about this, but I'm so completely irritated that the movies, ECLPSE in particular. I know the movie isn't out yet, but from what we've seen so far, the clips and stills, there's not much to be happy about.

ALSO, the only reason why i "liked" this page, was to comment. I will be revisiting this page, on behalf of all Edward/Bella fans, if we feel slighted in any way. I know we can't do anything about the movies now, but YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. You have damaged the Edward/Bella relationship that everyone loved from the start. The relationship that was in the books!

Disagree or agree. It doesn't matter. I was irritated and fed up with the recent things we have gotten. I've been pretty patient. I mean, I don't usually complain, but there's nothing good that I've seen. The characters and scenes are being altered in ways that take away the original meaning. And it's not right to me. She needs to know that there are alot of fans that are NOT happy with what she has done with the movies.

Thanks for taking the time to read :) 


EDIT: My comment on her facebook page is gone. I don't know if it was removed, or if she even saw it. Too bad. I really wanted to see what she had to say.
