It bothered me throughout the marriage proposals that she never stopped and thought about what SHE felt about being married to Edward. All of her objections seemed really to be about what others would think - about appearances. She had no clear objections at all to actually being married to him (th...

I do not recall the thread at this moment but recently we were discussing where we would want the series to end (if it were to have ended previously) and I believe most people agreed that the end of Eclipse was too raw for an end. I think one would be hard pressed not to see where you are coming fr...

The one thing that makes me think that she would react differently than he does is that she doesn't hold the same horror of what he's become that he does. She doesn't really value humanity as much as he does - though toward the end of Eclipse I think she's starting to value it more. I like what you...

Who knew at the beginning he would soon be able to stand to lay in a bed with Bella withstand temptation all night long? Who knew he would someday be able to clean her bleeding wounds without it bothering him? I wonder what he'll be able to stand in Breaking Dawn. The one thing we know he can't sta...

Bella being Bella, and Edward being Edward, I don't think the whole story could have ever turned out differently. I think once Bella came to Forks, events were put in motion that would eventually, one way or another, draw them together. Wow, now this is interesting! I am attempting to wrap my brain...

Yes, it does seem so obvious. And that obviousness (is that a word?) goes two ways, Bella also believed that he really didn't love her anymore. Neither had enough faith in the other, or rather, in themselves to believe in the love they have. Hmm, I think we just succeeded in convincing me that New ...

I 100% agree, that while he knew he was hurting her, I do not think that he had a clue exactly how much he was hurting her. And it seems SO obvious that she would be just as hurt as he was, doesn't it?! The fact that Edward truly didn't realize the depth of Bella's feelings/need for him makes me so...

I think the difficulty for Edward is that it's not enough that Bella is happier than she has ever been. She has to be happier than she ever could be. More than that, she needs to still be happier than she ever could be when she is standing on the far side of the unimaginable cataclysm that she is s...

If Edward were faced now (ie the end of Eclipse) with the decision he had to make in Twilight -- whether to gamble on his self-control and bring Bella to the Meadow -- would he make the same choice? Or at this point would he be completely unable to contemplate taking that kind of risk with her? I t...
