Dying

Just nothing big like dying for good.

Well like SonR said, I didn't mean dying in the literal sense as an offering sacrificed to the gods. Rather the sacrifice I meant was the giving up of human bonds, friendships, and other things held dear in lieu of something greater and/or stronger.

Bella the human wants to marry Edward the vampire. To live with and love him forever she must forfeit her humanity. She will give up her human self to become a vampire. In a very real sense she will die, but she will live on as a vampire. With this change comes other "sacrifices". Giving up her human ties to family and friends. She may even sacrifice more or herself than we can possibly know as the conflicts unfold in the story to be.

These sacrifices aren't just black and white, life or death issues. Just like her decisions aren't just black and white. Why she is fraught with so much angst in her decisions regarding marriage and her life's direction for which she is so seemingly certain about on the surface but deep down questions every day.

Accepting True Love?

Not necessarily just Bella accepting it, but everyonenin general. Jacob (definately) accepting their love, Rosalie accepting their love, Charlie accepting their love.

Edward accepting the fact that the only way to be with Bella is to change her, accepting the fact that their love for eachother is stronger than mortality.

Bella accepting that she cant please everyone - Its true love or friendship.

Perhaps this wouldnt be the theme at all, but I do believe the book will have this all included one way or another.

On this day on, this forum and many others related to Twilight will close down, in order to prevent spoilers, like what happened with the HP books. It's to prevent leaks. There is a note about this on SM's site and on the Lex.

Can we compile a list to a bunch of different sacrifices?
There is:
-humanity
-happiness
-life (not just humanity- actually dying)
-human bonds/friendships
-beliefs
-life as you know it

I'm sure there are millions, but are there any other specific things that you think particularly relate? Because I really think that sacrifice is a big theme here.

Ok i have a new theory other than my first one which was letting go of true love. sorry if its already been suggested, but i think breaking dawn is about choosing between true loves. i know that might sound riddiculous, but while looking at the cover and summing up everyone elses comments and theories. :D

^^Bella's not choosing her true love in this book. She already did that in EC. We know that she's sticking with Edward.
