Vampires, Twilight and Blood - Oh My!

While letting my mind wander aimlessly today I came to question something about the Twilight series. Perhaps all vampire stories even.

If blood gets vampires all hot and bothered to want to kill… why doesn’t the fact that girls have their period matter? For instance, in New Moon Jasper wants to kill Bella after she slices her finger with a paper cut. Now surely Bella (and oh 99% of the other girls at their high school) has had her period. So, why doesn’t that bother them?

Just a question. Laugh if you must but really, think about it.

The Garver Family said...

Ok, so I might be the only person to actually try to answer this without gagging, but here goes...a woman's period does not consist of "fresh" blood, but is rather "dead" unused uterine lining...

Ya, hard to stomach that one...let's just not think about it.

Sheri said...

Eww, yeah I did not know that.

Liz said...

Yep, afraid "The Garver Family" is exactly right. It's nasty, yucky blood and tissue!

Jen said...

Hmm I never thought about that before. You're right though you would think it would drive them a little crazy too!

Jillene said...

I was going to say the same thing as the Garver Family. I wouldn't imagine that period blood smells the same to them as regular blood--just sayin'....

Lee said...

She actually addresses that on her website. Stephenie Meyer does.
And it's the same reason that everyone else said. It's dirty blood.

Let me find something you might enjoy:

Heck just browse around her site.
She has a bunch of other things that can feed your need for Twilight.

I just read the conversation Edward had with Rosalie when she called to tell him Bella was "dead".
It was really cool.

Sheri said...

Oh very nice thanks Lee, I will go check that out right now. Yeah, I read the convo Rosalie had with Edward and the Midnight Sun portion she posted. Can't wait for that to come out!

Vampires are typically dead, so I dont believe periods happen...
