Ladies all of your posts are so wonderfully written! I particulary love how you phrased your opinions, December. Your words were absolutely beautiful. I especially love how you wrote that," as a human loved by a vampire, Bella never had a chance." As humans, yes, a great deal of choice is involved i...

I don't think she would be anymore comfortable about marriag and hr deadlines would be longer. I thin...

Heartsong, you are so right when you say that TGDS was necessary. I almost see it as the counterpart to Edward's needing to leave Bella in NM -- not in any tit-for-tat sense, but in the sense that I can see Stephenie once again asking her characters what they needed to do, and Bella telling her: ac...

I suppose we could all take a swoony-break, and spend the evening happily re-immersing ourselves in the books....
That sounds like a plan to me, December!
I swear, the longer this thread continues, the hotter Edward gets!! :wink:

But on the other hand, how did they know that the wolves were the ones to kill Laurant? Most other vamps seem surprised when they come across them. Victoria did not know about the wolves until later. Did she find the wolves, then run back to Denali to tell of Laurant? I was just wondering this myse...

Quote: The bonus in proposing is the moralization/rationalization: if she's his wife, would it really be so awful for him to want to turn her -- not even to actually do it, but would it be bad for him to want it? And if they're married, they're vowed to each other for eternity, so why not take that...

It strikes me that when she says 'At least my mom and dad and my friends will know the best part of my choice, the most I'm allowed to tell them. They'll know I chose you, and they'll know we're together. They'll know I'm happy, wherever I am' , more is at stake than making sure they know it. It's ...

Thanks, NoWorries :wink:

Visitor, your quote sums things up beautifully!

I tried to paste it, but I don't know how! :oops:

I'll just type it in...
Visitor wrote:"Bella doesn't believe his soul was ever lost."

Perfectly said!!

Okay, I'm going to throw my two cents into the persuasion attempts... :) It's hard to wrap your mind around what Edward or Bella might do because their love for each other borders more on addiction or obsession than traditional romance...don't get me wrong, I love love love them together and I love ...

I'm really loving reading everyone's posts... everyone has such unique and well thought out opinions! Would Bella send Edward back on the genie's bus?? I can't see her ever doing that unless she was on it with him. She knows that she can't/won't live without him and she could never give him up. The ...
