Charlie and Renee's Reaction

Post by Be My Escape » Thu May 29, 2008 8:12 pm

We've had many theories on how Charlie would react so what did you think? Were you surprised by his reaction? Then there was Renee did she react the way anyone suspected she would? How do yout hink Charlie felt when Renee reacted the way she did? Discuss it here.

I kind of thought Charlie's reaction to Bella was funny. Not the part about her being pregnant, but where he randomly bursts out laughing. I definitely didn't think that would've happened. I thought Renee would've been a lot ...uh, tougher on Bella. Her reaction was pretty surprising, but I guess it made sense. Charlie seemed disappointed by Renee's reaction, and probably wished that Bella had gotten lectured/ tortured a bit more. Haha yeah, that wasn't the best way to put it. Both of their reactions were much calmer than I expected.

They both know that Edward is the best thing that ever happened to Bella.
Although they think it's too early they still wish the best for her.
That's what parents are like. :D

i personally though that charlie was going to have a heart attack and renee's response was unexpected as well. but that tidbit of charlie laughing about bella telling renee was hillarious >.<

I loved Renees response - and to be honest i wasn't surprised at all considering her 'bullet' comment in eclipse, i think that foreshadowed how she would respond to the wedding. I just thought it was hilarious that Charlie got snookered by the 'living in sin' vs. 'marriage' :lol: poor man

i expected Charlie's reaction. i though he would be a little bit more mad but overall it was what i would expect out of him. as for renee..wow i was in total shock. i thought she would chastise Bella and mabye not try to convince her out of it but like tell her why she should wait..but i guess its good she approves.

I'm more surprised at Renee's response because she seemed like she didn't like Edward and Bella's relationship after their trip to visit her and the "talk" she gave Bella. Plus, her bad experience with marrying young. I thought she would have had a stroke when Bella told her. As for Charlie, I always figured he would take it easy and not totally blow up so I wasn't surprised there.

Yeah I agree with you. It was a complete turn-around for Renee to take it the way she did. It almost doesn't make any sense, but then if we think about it...why not? Renee is obviously happy with her present marriage which has helped reshape her original thoughts of matrimony to where she can now focus the negative aspects on herself and can accept that there can be happiness in other people's marriages. Also, she's had plenty of time to think over Bella and Edward's relationship and has now grown to accept it. It's a nice surprise. Charlie too now that he's getting more used to the idea.
[i]Edward squeezed me gently. "I'm here." I drew a breath. That was true. Edward was here, with his arms around me. I could face anything as long as that was true. I squared my shoulders and walked forward to meet fate, with my destiny solidly at my side.[/i]

Charlie's reaction was actually better than I thought it would be. I laughed out loud at the whole "You're pregnant!" thing though. Plus I couldn't help laughing at him breaking out into hysterical "guffaws". That was priceless. Anyways, I thought he was going to be a lot more angry. I thought he was going to forbid it and I thought they were going to have to fight. It seemed too easy almost.

As far as Renee's reaction. I was totally flabbergasted at that one. Seriously. We go through three books of being lead to believe that she thought marriage was the worst thing EVER at an early age like that and now all of a sudden she's happy about this and planning the wedding. It just seems like both of them reacted so opposite of how I thought they would. It made a lot of sense though when she explained to Bella about how she always meant that it wasn't right for HER and not for Bella. I liked the look at their conversation because it really made me get a better sense of Renee for the first time and it was just a really nice conversation.

As far as Charlie thinking that he had a hidden weapon with Renee well...weren't we all thinking that? I felt kind of bad for him being all defeated and mopey, but I mean Bella and Edward were going to get married regardless.
