This quote reminded me of a song that always makes me think of Bella and Edward, the chorus always repeats "There's more to living than being alive"

There are so many times in the novels that SM writes about the awkwardness - the natural aversion - that humans feel around the vamps. There's that one time at the graduation party in Eclipse when Emmett smiles at someone (I think it's mike newton but I'm not sure) and Bella comments at how they lo...

LisaCullenAZ wrote And she loves him DESPITE the fact that she is supposed to be scared of him. A normal person would be scared of him. I don't really think that is true. She loved him before she found out what he was (I think so, at least) and because of that she was willing to overlook the whole ...

I suppose I'm all for the closing of the thread for a little bit, I would feel better knowing, for once, that if I miss the thread for a few days, I won't have two or three pages of catch-up when I do get back to the computer. lol. And I wanted to reply to the "Eclipse made me feel sad" comment...bu...

I can see that he might still ache for Bella, but seeing as Stephenie loves him and that she used the words "big fat bow" or "nice big bow" or whatever she said to mean she'd wrap up the story nicely... that means, to me, that all her favorite characters will be taken care of and happy. Jacob, Edwa...

I haven't read every post on here, but I wanted to throw in my two cents, so if I sound like I'm repeating anyone...sorry :oops: The comment on "Jake's" myspace didn't actually upset me that much...I figured Stephenie meant it in a light hearted kind of way, or, if not, well...it still wouldn't surp...

Poor Jane's always getting the short end of the stick. She's incredibly sadistic but not evil. All children are sadistic to some point. Every child has, at some point, delighted in pulling the wings off a butterfly. And Jane, for all intents and purposes, is a child with a child's maturity. To that...

Anyways, let's not forget that it was important that Bella make the choice that she made in Eclipse considering only herself. Though she didn't consider it at the time, it's a good thing she didn't consciously take into consideration the effect what it would have on Edward if she left him. Because ...
