Some people think Emily was mean and cold-hearted by asking Leah to be a bridesmaid at her and Sam's wedding. I disagree. I don't think she asked; I think Leah and Emily tried to repair their relationship, and it was a gesture of reconciliation that Leah made. I don't remember Stephenie giving us an...

If she were still human, I think Edward would tie her up and hide her somewhere he was certain she couldn't escape! And I can't see that happening, really. At least, I don't think Stephenie would take us there again. So I guess I agree--if it comes to a fight (and I don't see how it won't), Bella wi...

Emmett reminds me of my four brothers. If there's a problem, solve it--don't talk it to death! Don't beat around the bush, and make sure to have some fun while you're at it!

I think you're probably right, cataclysm. I'm looking forward to the strategic maneuverings between the Volturi, the Cullens, and the werewolves! Bella was so determined to be a fighting vampire when the next confrontation occurred ... I wonder if she'll get her wish?

I think Bella's characterization tends to offend people who have feminist, aggressive, or very self-confident personalities. Personally, I tend towards aggressive self-confidence, but I have become good friends with so many people that I initially didn't like, that people have to exhibit persistent ...

I've always enjoyed this quote: Great people talk about ...

One of the interesting things about reading these forums is seeing how your different personalities react to the characters. There are people close to me who are just like Bella: insecure in social settings, generally good natured, intensely loyal to their "soul mate" but blind to their faults, tryi...

You could be right; it was just a thought. I guess Leah is pretty much trapped on the reservation since she has turned werewolf. I wonder if her inability to go elsewhere or do something different is contributing to her bad mood--as well as the obvious difficulty of being forced to work closely with...

Well, Edward chased Victoria into Texas and lost her, then followed a false lead down to South America. Meanwhile, Victoria came back north and met up with Laurent, asking him to check out the Forks situation for her. She had already seen the newborn armies down south, but she may not have decided t...
