Imprinting

Just read the last page of posts, and the question about why the biological drive to imprint. I had forgotten that my initial thought was that, of course, Jacob won't imprint on Bella because she's not Quileute. I had completely forgotten that some of them are imprinting on Makah. There seems to be ...

Imprinting

I haven't read all the posts, so I hope I'm not repeating something. I really feel bad about Sam and Leah, but as others have pointed out, they might have broken up anyway. There's was a high school romance, which have a high mortality rate. Sam was going away to school, and they could have grown ap...

Stephenie's question

Of course, Stephenie is brilliant, so she has to throw a little twist into the whole debate re: could Edward really have loved her if he didn't leave? I hated HOW he left, but I understood WHY he left. I do think that the "clean break" was unnecessarily cruel, and he was foolish not to make sure she...

Was Edward an idiot?

I have to give kudos to unquenchable thirst 34? (I think that's right) for bringing up the fact that the Cullens should have been prepared for Bella to have some kind of klutzy accident at their house involving blood. I hadn't really thought about it, but it was just a matter of time. Alice should h...

Was Edward an idiot?

My post from this morning is on page 2 and we're already on page 7, guess a lot of people have opinions on this. I don't remember if this was from a post or a fanfiction (my apologies to the originator of this thought), but in it, Alice is saying that Edward has always relied so much on hearing othe...

Was Edward wrong?

I'm really enjoying all the posts and I agree with all the points made about Edward relying too much on his ability to read minds, and deluding himself into thinking that Bella would get over him. A couple of points not mentioned that I think are revealing of Edward's motives - one is the lunchroom ...

Teen love

Cheeky, of course Bella has serious self esteem issues. Before she ever arrives in Forks, she comments about not being able to make friends in such a small school, if she couldn't do it in a big school. She's shy, smart and clumsy and says she thinks she has a glitch in her brain because she doesn't...

Teen love

I really think that Bella and Jacob are portrayed realistically. Remember that Jacob and Bella felt comfortable with each other the first time they met at the beach. Jacob's reaction to Bella is seen through Bella's eyes, but it's obvious that he's attracted to her. Bella is so used to seeing hersel...

Teen love

Wow, Lindsay1278! That was some post. I have to agree with you about the total fantasy aspect of this romance. Of course, Edward and Bella did have that wonderful summer together, during which time they probably did things together that they enjoyed. A little reference to that is Bella's remark abou...

Teen love

I have to disagree, Lindsay1278, on your views on Edward and Bella's relationship. He tried to get to know her better to overcome the lure of her blood and became fascinated with her as a person. He's been thrust into the protector role because of her danger magnet status, but he likes to talk to Be...
