For those who favor the MSND love spell theories . . . If it's imprinting and the pack, that's not very love spell-y. They fall in . . . imprint . . . once. With the right person. The only connection there would be the reference already made that it's beyond their control -- and we already know that...

I think it's just way too obvious to be the "change" moment. That's the first inclination, which is why I don't think it's *the* one. SM hasn't previously given that much up in the Preface, I can't imagine her starting now, in the final book. Plus . . . 1. it's too non-committal. She makes it sound ...

I don't think that, had Emily not "chosen" to return Sam's admiration, Sam could have elected to stay with Leah. Once gravity moves, can you ever really put it back? I'm thinking that he would never again have seen Leah in a light even remotely similar to that in which he'd previously seen her. So, ...

My theory, as posted in the Preface thread (which is languishing): The MSND reference has nought to do with love spells and refers, rather, to the opposite. Alec (or whomever, but I think he's the best candidate) possesses the ability to mind-scramble vamps into turning on one another. The Preface, ...

What if Edward *could* be persuaded to want to kill Bella? Assume that, at the point of the Preface, Bella is already a vamp. The MSND allusions have thus far been an entertaining foray into the possibilities of love triangles, but what if it's not a love spell that's at issue? What if someone (Alec...

I am not down with the imprint (is it any wonder, really?) To start, I don't equate imprinting and love. I suppose we are meant to, what with the gravity moving and the soulmate-speak and all, but I just think it's a different beast, entirely. Since I do not consider the two emotions/functions to be...

if they really wanted speed they wouldnt waste it in their normal cars (the bmw, volvo, meredes porche) since they have to use those inpublic, and its one thing to drove 100MPH another to go 200 Those cars most certainly are built for speed and handling -- all are exceedingly competant track cars a...

One can be a fan of Edward without blindly toe-ing the line of his perfection. The initial post grabs the hand of context and leads it into the middle of a 4 lane highway at rush hour, seconds before the light changes. It's not fair to anyone -- Bella, Edward, Jake, SM -- to remove the context in wh...

Another vote for "depends on the maturity / reading level of the person in question". My mother operated under the assumption (and I love her for it) that I should read whatever I want, otherwise my reading and comprehension skills would never improve. I was taking Stephen King books to 5th / 6th gr...

Re: chastity

This IS NOT my view...I was speaking as how I see the "world views". Yikes! How many enemies did I make!? I guess my emoticons didn't quite work in expressing my opposite opinion. MEN AND WOMEN HAVE EQUAL CHOICE AND THUS EQUAL RESPONSIBILITY. *whew* don't throw tomatoes. But thanks for asking so I ...
