  • Stephenie Meyer is not from Iceland, and her stories were not written in the Middle Ages.
  • Her stories didn't AT ALL resemble Norse sagas. (Much for her Chagrin, because a Viking instead of a gay vampire glitterpire glittering Meyerpire would be cool)
  • Her story is centered about ONE character, not about her family (because Pixie Meyerpire covens don't really count as families and the story is written from Meyer's Bella's POV.)
  • Swooning over a glittering teenage wannabe vampire does not count as a heroic exploit, and this makes up the majority of the books.
