i wish i was irina

I really hate how the Denali Coven refused to help the Cullens in Eclipse because Irina’s mate***, who she knew for like a year or whatever, was killed by the shapeshifters. They just completely snubbed the Cullens, who they consider their “cousins?” It totally rubs me the wrong way especially if you are trying to convince me that the vegetarian lifestyle allows for ~stronger/true bonds to be formed between vampires.

***: “Mate” because I totally think certain vampires fake the whole mate bond for the benefits associated with it.
