Whether you loved it or hated it, no one can deny the pull Twilight had over all of us. Between the best-selling book series and a movie saga, Stephenie Meyer certainly gave us a lot to work with. One of fandoms' favorite things to do is come up with fan theories. From unanswered questions to character quirks, we managed to round up some of the most interesting fan theories surrounding our favorite sparkly vampire series. Which Twilight Saga fan theory do you think is most believable? Vote up your favorites.
1. Bella Had Great Self-Control As A Newborn Because Blood Was Her Human WeaknessPhoto: New Moon / Summit Entertainment
From Redditor u/Altruistic_Matter:
So basically, in the Saga when people become vampires their greatest strength transforms into their powers. Eg, Carlisle's compassion, Rosalie's beauty, Bella's ability to protect herself using her shield.
But what if, with their weaknesses were also magnified. In the books and movie, Bella was afraid of blood. What if her aversion to blood (her fear) also got magnified and blood wasn't as appetizing to her as it was to other vampires. Now this may not look like a weakness but imagine a vampire averse to their own food/energy source. It could potentially threaten their survival.
This theory could also be extended to vampires' weaknesses like Edward's broodiness, Rosalie's pigheadedness (which did get enhanced according to Edward), or Jasper's bloodlust (he was a war soldier when he was human).Interesting theory?
2. The Vampires In 'Twilight' Are Actually FaeriesPhoto: Twilight / Summit Entertainment
From Redditor u/GodEmperorOfHell:
Vampires in Twilight are not vampires, they are faeries. 1. They Sparkle. 2. They live in the woods. 3. In folklore, the Sidhe and Boabhan Sidhe drink blood, they are also unusually beautiful.
From Redditor u/iamnotparanoid:
That actually makes an incredible amount of sense. In Breaking Dawn they mention that European werewolves are a completely different breed from Jacob's clan,(real werewolves are the traditional full moon type) and that his clan just started using the term werewolves because everyone else did. It's not too far out picturing faeries doing the exact same thing just because they drink blood. This would also explain the random magic powers.Interesting theory?
3. Being A Half Vampire Means Renesmee Won't Have The Same Capabilities As Her FamilyPhoto: Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt 2 / Summit Entertainment
From Redditor u/bernell46:
Do you think that because Nessie is half vampire that she will age at some point passed 150 years. Like from when she was born she aged rapidly for about 7 years before she stops aging when she reaches 18 physically. However do you think it’s possible that the aging process will only pause for awhile before she starts aging again but slowly until she becomes old.
From Redditor u/angbhb333:
I don’t think she’ll age, but I also don’t think she’s as durable as the Cullens. If she’s got a heartbeat and is half human, she can theoretically be killed quite a bit easier than the Cullens. Jake, too. His quick healing could be life saving, but there are catastrophic events that kill people instantly. I don’t think Jake or Nessie would live as long as the Cullens.Interesting theory?
4. Control Over Emotions During Vampire Transformation Is Directly Proportional To Control Of One's Self After TransformationPhoto: Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt 2 / Summit Entertainment
From Redditor u/TheMasterMadness:
We all know Carlisle stayed kept quite the entire time when he was going under transformation and the same with Bella.(In starting she was helped by Morphine but then when all burnt out she kept her mouth shut so Edward doesnt feel pain.) Rosalie in the end also kept her mouth shut cause she found out that it wasnt easing her pain.
So what I think is happening here the control over emotions during the transformation is directly proportional to control on one self after transformation. Carlisle have the most self control after centuries of practice but what we miss is even after transformation he didnt kill people but kept himself under control even when humans were around him. Same thing happens with Bella after her transformation, she doesnt runs off the hunt and doesnt kill her father. Rosalie as she states is cleaner than most of the others cause she was under control in last part so there are very few slip ups.Interesting theory?
