ut think: if Leah imprints, then all four of them will be some of the happiest people on earth. And also, if Jacob imprints, then it will save both him and Bella a lot of pain. (Even though he doesn't think he will, I hope so). But wouldn't that undermine Leah's feelings for Sam, that one day she f...

Which begs the question I asked earlier when we were first thinking of this topic. Will we as readers be happy for Jake in this instance. Will it be the happy ending tied up neat little bow that we are assuming is Stephenie's plan for Jake or will it leave a slightly bitter taste in our mouths as a...

Ok, Sasha , you are making me re-think everything I posted. Yes, I too love the falling in love part, the getting to know and love them part, the 'oh that is the cutest thing ever' part. Do you really think that is obliterated with imprinting? Wouldn't you still have those feeling? The way I unders...

Fun! New topic! For me, the most beautiful parts of love is the falling... the slow, gradual process in which two people get to know and love each other. You fall in love with the person because of their personality, their quirks, their laugh. That process is the most amazing thing in the world... a...

Bella went after Edward. And once she did that, Edward would have been five times more callous than any one could claim him to be if he simply let her save his life, let her express the depths of her love for him, and then leave her . . . again. So personally, I think he did the right thing. He put...

And then he came back, and it was as if the whole thing never happened. I agreed with most of what you said though this last line caught me a bit. Only because the entire book of Eclipse was about Edward having to face the consequences of that initial action. For me, Eclipse was less about Edward f...

Can I ask you about this? I wrote a bit about the question of selfishness on page 7, and I'm wondering if my speculations in that post were right. Whether you (and Lomesir22 and others) see Edward's decision as selfish That's part of it. But mostly what I meant is that Edward knew that if he did no...

Edward had the right to leave. Anyone has the right to leave a relationship at any time, no matter what the reason. But Edward did it in the worst possible way. I mean, how cliche is it to lie about loving someone to "make it easier"? And Edward, who has lived so long, seen so much, and read people'...

Generally speaking, if Edward has no choice over whom he loves, what choices remain for him? Good question! Well, he could always leave her... or kill himself... or kill her, I suppose. And then again, there are plenty of people who move on even though they never fall out of love. That's a possibil...

^I agree, mostly. But then, if there were no Cullens then Bella's experience in Forks would be so different that it is hard to imagine who she would end up meeting or what she would be doing. Jacob sure seemed to be interested in getting to know Bella, so he may have ended up prevailing, since it do...
