*boggles at all the smart people around me* I'm not sure if I'm rephrasing anyone, but to me the fact that vampires can't actually express tears is similar to the way that they cannot let go of grief. We cry, and we can squeeze out tears, as though we expel the pain within them. But nothing can come...

I think we're veering into "Breaking Dawn Theories" territory, so here's something sort of different that popped into my head today. Anyone up for a discussion about possible metaphors in the series? For instance: Vampires aren't able to cry or sleep. Are these just cool aspects of vampire physiolog...

I haven't been to this thread before, but it appears to be an anti-Edward sort of deal? How come you guys can make this thread, but we can't make an anti-Jacob one? Or are we allowed to do that? I was under the impression that we weren't. Put it this way: If you're anti-Edward, this is the place fo...

Just wanted to post in that we do not have it from Stephenie that Edward can't become human. The quote often used to explain this (and if there is another one, I would sincerely like to hear it) is from PC12, where Stephenie was both playing Devil's Advocate and at the time possibly speaking from Ed...

Thanks, Alcyone (seriously they don't use only 10%? It did sound off. Ah well, you live, you learn new things)! At the risk of showing myself less than smart again, I'll just answer this: By genetic you mean, turning genetically changes a person? Or that they already had a mutation of sorts to start...

Re: Genetic Predisposition

Question posed: Is Bella genetically predisposed to vampire life? If so, is this the reason that she was drawn to Edward in the first place? Is this the reason she is not afraid? Is there a gene that creates these special abilities? (I have been watching Heroes way too much.) The following is rambl...

I'm not going to apply my own view of the afterlife today, but ~falling_girl~ has reminded me of probably my favorite quote out of Joss Whedon's entire work (and it has shown up on this thread a multitude of times because it is simply incredible). It's from Angel, of course, a vampire trying atone f...

I'm realizing I could have completely misinterpreted your point. But I do agree that Edward could certainly be romanticizing death and I'll add just like Bella is (or could be) romanticizing immortality. Yup. And neither of them are wrong. Or right. Bella not understanding immortality-never aging c...

Well, as a Harry Potter nut throughout my entire adolescence, I can't say it wasn't a heavy influence! Dumbledore is still the ultimate fountain of wisdom to me (aside from my Mom and probably Harry himself, who despite half his own fandom not liking him, is my favorite for ever and ever!). Actually...

Originally asked by ~falling_girl~: Bella has chosen to live more or less forever. But do you think people may need death? Death can be a motivator to get your life moving, do it all before you're gone-even if the idea is only in your subconsious. Does knowing you'll never die make what you do now w...
