yes!!!!!!!!
reasons:
1) she had no complaints about the wedding being planed in such a short time
2) y else would Edward buy Bella a bullet proof car- he's not allowed to take her out of town when Alice sees danger coming, but Bella never said he couldn't buy her a car that will protect her
3)this is iffey but i think at the end of Eclipse she wanted Edward and Bella to "run and play" because she saw something and needed to tell the others without Bella getting suspicious

i don't have the special edition eclipse, so did Edward go with Bella to go tell Renee? if not then there's another reason.

I'm "Switzerland" in the whole whose better for bella, Jake or Edward. I think they'll both be a good match for her, but i do believe in the end she'll marry Edward.

The quote on the cover i'm pretty sure is about him turning her, but the preface, seems like something more. Like Edward is in some sort of situation and she's having to give herself for him or that he's being forced to kill her.

The more i look into things, the more things i'm not sure about any more lol. August 2nd needs to get here fast!!!
i love this idea- not that Bella's dieing but it would be a really good plot senerio! it would be really interesting to see how they would get out of that situation... maybe Edward would bit bella really quick so no one could kill her....

I heard that Edward was taking Bella to Alaska for their "honeymoom" - their little joke, actually meaning "being changed into a vampire." Throughout Eclipse, they talk about going to University at Alaska, and moving their untill Bella is stable and controlled enough to live with real, normal people. She is wanting to become a vampire, so if it is in fact only a rumor I would bet that is how it got started.

Second of all, I guess I should explain my thinking on Edward changing her in Alaska. Where else would he change her? In Forks? If so, how would they get her to Alaska, or any other place that's safe for her? Running all the way from Washington to Alaska with a girl who's withering in pain on your back? :D It's true that we don't know for sure he will change her their, but it seems likely to me. I can't think of any other ideas, but if you have some let me know. I'm open to new ideas, and my brain only has limited space these days for creative thinking.

It would be nice if Edward did take Bella on a proper honeymoon, though, and if he does you can bet I'd reread that chapter more then once.

In the first chapter of Breaking Dawn, Bella says that Edward is taking her on a honeymoon and that its a suprise location.

I see yout point about changing in Alaska, to an extent. Yes, they may go to Alaska to change her, but we have to remeber that we dont know WHEN they are changing her. After the honeymoon, or when they go off to "school." Also, I'm pretty sure that Edward got her a proper honeymoon. Its not a cover for changing her. Though, if they are able to enjoy their honeymoon is another matter. Its possible that there will be some drama that will interupt them.

i'd guess that Carlisle will be around when he changes her (for 2 reasons, to ensure Edward doesnt accidntly kill her and to give her some pain killers so she doesnt feel all the pain from the transfermantion). so i'd guess he doesnt do it on their honeymoon. But i'm still betting on something crazy happening and Edward having to change her when he's not totally expecting to. because knowing him, he has it all planned out and things wont go as planned.


Kind of a random question, but does anyone know what they are calling Breaking Dawn in other countries??? Are they doing literal translations into German/French other languages or have they given it a little differnt title that might give us some differnt clues?

Okay, so it's good to know they are going on a honeymoon somewhere nicer then Alaska. It'll make a better plot, for one thing, but no matter where they go I bet that something will go wrong - the honeymoon would be boring without some drama (just my opinion).

Still, I stand by my idea that she'll be changed in Alaska... that is, unless something goes really wrong and they need to change her sooner, or it's postponed. If everything goes according to plan (which it probably won't) I bet she'd be changed there. Either way, I see what you're saying about how we "don't know when/ where he'll change her" but I find it hard to believe she'll be changed on their honeymoon. Everyone says it hurts like crazy, so it wouldn't make for a very romantic getaway.

I agree with Secsec1 that Carlisle will be around when Edward changes her... if nothing goes wrong. Like I said, so much depends on the part of the plot we don't know. It's so frustrating, and I bet Stephenie's looking at our posts and laughing like a lunatic.

Sorry, but I don't know what it's called outside North America. I'd assume it'd be the same title, but I only know a little bit of French and a couple words in Spanish, so I dunno. Not trying to be snoopy, but why do you ask?

I went on Barnes and Noble right now and looked up "Breaking Dawn" and "Amanecer" came up as the Spanish version of it. I went to free translation and put it in and it came up as "waking up"
Hmmmm...could this be Bella waking up from being created into a vampire?

Well, I posted something on the Breaking Dawn Cover thread that kind of goes along with this:

I saw the Dark Knight trailer the other day at the theater and it said:

"The night is always darkest just before the dawn."

I take this to mean that Bella is going to be going through some sort of dark phase (ie changing/newborn) and Breaking Dawn represents her reemergence/rebirth/awakening.

I'm thinking that Leah is feeling very protective of Jacob because she understands what he's going through, and that's going to create tension between her and Bella.
Yea i agree with you, Leah is feeling overprotective of Jacob. And there will be a problem between Bella and Leah, because Leah is kind of jealous of Bella. This can be seen in the epilogue of eclipse, when it's told from Jake's point of view. From this, i considered another possibility...maybe Jacob won't imprint...instead Leah might imprint on him? I don't know, cause that would make sense especially when you want to make connections between breaking dawn and a midsummer night's dream.

Leah would have already imprinted on Jake, and she hasn't If she had imprinted, she wouldn't have been able to be cross with Jake like she was on the cliff. Not only that, but she wouldn't be able to hide it from Jake or the other wolves...
