If there’s one thing we love here at Twilighters.org it’s a good argument! That’s the idea behind ‘Great Debate Thursdays’. Every Thursday is YOUR chance to voice your opinion (we know you have one) on some of the most intensely debated Twilight subjects!
Is ‘Imprinting’ Creepy or Romantic?
Is it creepy that Quil can fall madly in love with a toddler, or do you feel that the true love at first sight that is ‘imprinting’ is romance at it’s best?
Now it can definitely be argued that this kind of behavior is kind of creepy and even frightening, as Samantha pointed out, however if you’re going by the conventional rules of imprinting then you also have to remind yourself that this doesn’t happen to guys over the world, only those in the Quileute tribe exactly because of the behavior I’ve described above: they want the best gene carrier and the girls from the reservation are best fitting for this (yes, I know Renesmee isn’t from the tribe, but you can’t say she’s your everyday girl). Thus, you can’t really argue imprinting if you’re setting it into our real world; it was made in the fictional world and it’s there to stay–where vegetarian vampires move into your rainy town and giant wolves police them.
Having cleared that up, is the imprinting of Werewolf tribesmen upon other girls creepy or romantic? Well, think of it this way; draw a circle and in the center of that circle, pin down a puzzle piece (A) with a needle. Now connect a matching puzzle piece (B) with the one that’s pinned down. And there you have it, your werewolf and imprintee; whatever puzzle B wants to do, puzzle A will follow. However, if puzzle B decides she doesn’t want to hang out with puzzle A anymore, she can go away; and puzzle A won’t stalk her, because he’ll respect her opinion.
So you can’t say that it’s creepy, as long as it’s a mutual relationship. As for romantic? Well, it isn’t romantic until puzzle B decides it wants to be. Until then, puzzle A will be her best friend ever.
