so Bella's mind is almost completely detached from her physical body (clumsy, 'different frequency,' surprised by her own lust when E kisses her, etc.). Don't you think that's going to make it very easy for her to detach herself from her physical needs when she is a newborn? I can see her easily tra...

What I can't figure out, thought is the hand. What could that mean? Someone may have already answered this...but in heraldry a hand symbolizs a pledge or promise. Which obviously implies the promise the Cullens have made to protect, rather than harm, humans. Incidentally, the lion is a proctector s...

I call BS on any claim that the depiction of Bella falling in love/being in love is unrealistic. Aside from my husband not being a vampire...our first couple years together (ages 17-18) were very similar. I count myself very lucky to have found that type of love so young...but it was that intense. T...

What's going to happen to them when they finally have forever to be together. It's not fair for us to try and decide whether or not their love will stay realistic because no one's ever had that long to be together.[/quote] Come on now...when you are miserable a month can feel like forever or vice ve...

I made my decisions about my life partner when I was 17. I am 30 now, married 6 years, together 13 years. Like Bella, I was extremely inexperienced when I met the guy who would become my husband. It doesn't always work, but when you both are deeply in love and cannot stand to be separated--you forge...

thanks

yeah I've already posted on some of the BD boards. I couldn't help myself. especially with all the theories about the preface and cover. I hope MY theories are wrong (!); I expect so much from SM now. I read the three books so quickly that I didn't give myself any time to predict how things would pl...

beneath you?

because they are girly or because it's not Literature with a capital L? I have a degree in literature and am definitely a book snob, but I do enjoy these books and do find merit in SM's storytelling abilities. I read the Host first and immediately put SM in the same category as Stephen King (for me)...

umm, am i the only adult fan?

Hi there, Not to come across as age-ist or snooty, but... I am 30 years old, have a degree in literature and a degree in English education and was curious about how many other 'literature-literate' older fans are on this site. I personally don't know anyone else with my background or near my age tha...
