Scott alleges Breaking Dawn, the fourth instalment in Meyer’s teen vamp saga, has “striking and substantial” similarities to Scott’s 2006 book The Nocturne, part of a trilogy she began writing she was 15. TMZ has the letter, which suggests both books contain a “post wedding sex scene” and a scene involving “a woman who’s sick because she’s carrying a child with ‘evil powers.'”Meyer’s rep has said it’s all malarkey.Given the sheer ubiquity of the Twilight books, this is a potentially devastating accusation. I cannot comment on the solidity of Scott’s claim, so I will deflect it entirely and ask: is it possible that the vampire genre has been sucked dry? That it’s become bloodless, drained of ideas, long in the tooth, a pale version of its former self?(You think this is the full extent of my vampire wordplay? Hells, I’m just warmin’ up!)Anyways, your opinions on the topic of Meyer and the vampire genre as well as more jagged jokes are welcome.Most vampire novels are rip offs of other vampire novels.

Called it decoupling when people separate out morality from other things, Reed notes. Wanted to write a paper on the difference between moral rationalization and moral decoupling, what people actually do, what the consequences are and how that might play out in terms of a consumer crisis management situation. Recent history is littered with high profile people actors, athletes and politicians who have not only survived scandals, but thrived beyond them.
