Yay! I wasn't sure if there was a thread for Scott Westerfeld, but I'm glad there is! I have read Uglies, and I am just about done with Pretties. They are both really good so far. I love Zane! He is seriously the best! But there is one thing I am not happy about... I had a foreboding sense of someon...

Wow, I have missed so much! :cry: I don't even know where to start. With Edward being damned if he does, damned if he doesn't, I couldn't agree more. Just like it's Bella's nature to not share with Edward all her months of hurt, it isn't in Edward's nature to really fight to keep Bella. And I saw so...

Ha ha. Mine exploded long ago... :wink:

And that's why I'm going to wait until tomorrow to respond to Catching Cove's really good post.

I guess I just see the work and the impact it has as too intertwined to truly separate. For me, if you love the work, that means you love the impact it has. Because that's part of the work. If not, then what would be the reason for working at all (besides for pure necessity, which isn't an issue for...

^^Yeah, and that's why I started stopping that train of thought--and then lost it!

Also, about the atonement argument-I still wonder if it isn't more justice for the victims if the family was wandering about in rags and ashes, in constant existential pain (this was part of the original atoning argument, and I felt it could use a return). Well, I don't know if there's really anyth...

^^I do see your point. But at the same time... If I'm laying on the side of a pool, unconscious, not breathing, and all that jazz, I wouldn't mind someone saying "Hey, she might need some help. Let's give her CPR." But I see that this gets into the whole implied consent idea, and I'm just going to s...

The Cullens struggle not to take human life -- Carlisle works so hard in the hospital to save lives -- not because it will earn them anything, but because they feel it is right. See, this is a main reason why I love the Cullens (particularly Carlisle) so much. They (well, I think the most of them, ...

You know, it's funny. When Edward showed up out of the blue in Port Angeles, I was really worried about his self-control. I was sort of catching on to the reason he stayed with Bella before he revealed it. I mean, when you mix together a girl (who is liked by a vampire), evil plotting against that g...
