If people were to say they despised him and that he was a horrible character, would your opinion of Edward as a Gary-Stu remain the same? Or is your view on Edward damaged because of the people who go around saying 'OMGOMG. EDWARD IS PERFECTION'?

Edward is far from perfect; he's arrogant, masochistic, overprotective, and stereotypical, just to name a few of his flaws, but people still love him all the same, maybe because of the high pedestal Bella puts him on. Of course, I also adore Edward, but still, he is in no way perfect. No one is.

I doubt that Midnight Sun will sway the views of Edward's fangirls, myself included. If anything, I'm guessing more sympathy will be given (again, as it will come from my direction, as well).

Those that don't regard Edward so highly certainly have their rightful reasoning, but his positive traits outweigh his negative to most people, like his love, compassion, loyalty, mind, etc, and perhaps most of all to a lot of people who won't admit it, his looks.

Okay, sorry about that little tirade. It's longer than I intended. Also sorry if I completely missed the point of your post. I do that a lot when I'm tired, heh.
totally agree- Bella does put him on a very high pedistal, but then again it's apart of her nature- humans are naturally overwhelmed by the beauty of vampires. In terms of the food chain, it's a mechanism that makes it easier for vampires to feed on humans...wow that sounded really creepy haha

I don't know if anyone has already said this, but Edward is not good at seeing Bella as his equal. *Lexiconers run for the pitchforks* No, what I mean is that after re-reading new moon a few times it hit me that I do not think that Edward thought Bella his equal in the capacity to love, because he has spent years watching humans and learning that they are fickle and forget. Granted, I think this changed when he came back, so perhaps what Edward used to not be good at is a better way to say it.
Also, Edward is not good at fighting for what he wants. Look at how he responded when Bella asked Jake to kiss her. Bella had to practically beg him to "fight back" to which he responds, "how?"
I'm not sure if those were really the answers you were going for, but he is basically perfect so that's the best I could do! :D

Ummm, hmmm, I think since SM says Edward is a virgin, so maybe he's not a good baker, if you catch my drift. :wink:

Im a new girl. you can get more info on me in the New Kid forum. :D

edward is not good at going the middle way. he is always doing things to the extreme. for exampe in new moon leaving bella and then in eclipse not letting bella see jake. I think middle ground is hard for him but he has come a long way.

also edward is not good at being wrong. He hates it and then he just does not trust his judgement anymore. That is one thing I really do not like about him.
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.
I LOVE EDWARD CULLEN

He is scared of something. Loosing Bella. But he is also sure that that is not going to happen.

One time someone tried to explain to me why Edward isn't real. The next day, they "disappeared".

He is not good at letting Bella have fredoom. He suffocates her. And He does not see her as his equal.

i totally agree. that's why he thought bella would be able to move on when he left her in new moon; he didn't realize how much it would hurt her. but now he knows better :D . I felt horrible for him when he wouldn't fight for bella (in eclipse). he was so torn- he wants bella to love and choose him, but he isn't sure if that's what's best for her, so he wants her to stay human...
