This is under 'opinion' so please don't send any hate, it's just a though I had.
I have read various explainations both on this site and others about things antis point out as plot holes. (Ex: Renessme, Imprinting, Vampire Transformation, ect.) And I think that it's great that some people do think it through and don't just take it because it is what was written. What I don't understand is why you should have too.
In my mind, when an author creates a story with a new or different breed of creature they should explain it atleast to some degree.
I'm not saying she needs to explain every little thing, but could she explain it as simply as she could if she didn't want to bore people with details?Now, maybe she did and I just don't remeber, it has been a long time since I read them. But from what I remember in Breaking Dawn she refrences an incubus, creating the oxymoron virgin incubus.
Here is the dictionary definition of incubus:
an imaginary demon or evil spirit supposed to descend upon sleeping persons, especially one fabled to have sexual intercourse with women during their sleep.
Now, if I'm wrong please explain it in a comment, but I don't think that they were speaking a metaphor. Now if she was refrencing Edward by sayin gthis it makes no since. Vampires and incubus are two diffrenet mythical creatures.
Another point I don't understand is how imprinting works. Is it based on attraction or genetics?
Because gentically speaking I don't think a shifter and a half-vampire would breed full shifters; and if they did and eventually their family line turned into shifters again wouldn't they feel the need to harm themselves because they could smell the vampire in them?
And if it's based on animalistic attraction why would a shifter feel anamalisticly drawn to a creature that's race disgust him in every way?
Again, I'm not trying to hate. I just don't understand this because it was never explained (or I don't remember).
