I am really starting to believe this too, and maybe this is why Bella is so whiney and annoying (just my p.o.v) in the first chapter of Breaking Dawn. Maybe she will have a negative attitude, the wedding will be postponed because of something, some big event will happen where she almost loses her man which will really drive things home for her, and then when the wedding goes ahead, she will really want to marry Eddie Cullen because she is ready for it. Or not.

Honestly... i want to say that the car plays a bigger part, but i really dont think it does... I just think it is in Edwards character to be over protective... and yes maybe they like to fit in w/ the rest and thats not a good start, but i dont think he cares about "looking normal" when it comes to bellas safety. I just think he was being his usual overprotective self...

But i could be wrong... just a month to go till we find out!!! (well and a day, but im not counting that lol)

I do not think Jabac will come back and make any fuss at the wedding. He might come back for it though.

SM said the love triangle is over. That was the reason for book 3. To show bella all of her options. In the end she knew who she could not live without. She loves them both, but she would die without Edward. She misses Jake but she is not crawling into her head for 3-4 months being a zombie.

I do think Jake will come back at some point.

I think everything in BD will have to do with the Volturi, in the clearing after the fight with all the newbornes when Edward was talking to Jane. He got a good look into her head and comfirmed what her thoughts were. That the reason why they came so slowly was their hopes that some of the Cullens would get killed in the fight, or if they showed up while they were fighting they could have killed some of them without anyone being the wiser. Jane does not like Edward, Alice or Bella. I think she is kind of afraid of what Bella is going to become once she is changed.

She made a statement that made me think. She says "This one seems to bring out bizarrely starge reactions in our kind" meaning Bella.

Most the time vampires do not give humans a second thought, remember they are cattle so to speak. Maybe Aro has been talking alot about her. And wants her for himself.

That might be one of the reasons why Edward said if they did not go back to the clearing Jane would have Edward tracked knowing Bella would be with him. They could have easliy killed Edward alone and taken Bella. So instead they ran to the clearing and when they showed up the Cullen all made a circle with Bella in the heart of it.

One of my favorite lines from the Twilight Saga comes from the first one on Bella's first day of school. Before going to class she says to herself, "No one was going to bite me." I really hope that this line is not foreshadowing! It might have been too early in the writing process for her to know whether or not Bella would eventually be bitten. But hopefully it is just coincidence!

If youve noticed, the preface usually explains pretty much the main conflict of the book. However we readers don't tend to speculate on the preface as much as we should.

In doing so, I think that in the preface, where it says she was being killed by her true love, I think she got turned to a vampire and was being killed by jacob, also her true love.

Its probably a stretch, I'm not sure. I'm probably just going to make myself look like an idiot in posting this, but its worth a try! :)

I TOTALLY agree! like the car is just his nature, it doesnt necessarily mean that the car has to play in to a specific part. it was part of the deal anyways.

oh and i think that the wedding and her turning to a vampire will happen.. because i dont think SM would want to disappoint.

Yes. That's why this one is so strange. We're expecting a preface to mention an unkown bad guy coming to destroy them coughvolturicough, but in this case, its Bella's "beloved" that's hurting her. The more I think about this one the more confused I get. I think it could mean,

1) Bella is getting changed
2) Jacob is chasing after her
3)Edward is attacking her (though I don't think he's in a lucid frame of mindmaybe someone (Alec?) is making him do it.)
4) the preface is from someone else's point of view

Oh, I like the #4 idea! I never thought it could be through someone else's POV, and that makes me a lot less worried! Although, it did say that whoever is speaking that their life had been in danger before, so it'd have to be someone who's been in a lot of fights too (or had rotten luck like Bella).

There is no reason why it would be from a POV other than Bella's. It hasn't happened so far; why now? I think it is explicitly obvious that it is her mindset before Edward bites her because she is getting cold feet, but she lets him do it anyway because she doesn't want to hurt his feelings or leave him.

Actually, a different POV has happened. The epilogue to Eclipse was in Jacob's POV.
