Gianna

Post by Esme echo »

I just realized that Edward wasn't cold towards Gianna solely because she chose to serve the Volturi, but also because he could hear her thoughts concerning the whole set-up!

Alice's cold look might have had its roots in the deceit Gianna's very presence radiated to the Volturi's "visitors." Gianna projected a pretended air of harmless, friendly business relations, reinforcing the trap closing in on the innocent humans about to become a meal.

I speculate that originally Gianna was attracted to and/or fascinated by one of the Volturi guard, and was not at all put off when she learned what they were and that they routinely murdered whole groups of people. She rather sickly jumped at an opportunity to become part of the "organization" and rather hoped she would eventually become a powerful--and beautiful-- monster, too.

I'm fairly certain Gianna isn't going to get her wish to become a vampire. Here's what has me believing this.

I wondered if her competence would be enough to save her[Gianna]. Alice shot her a dark look. (NM Pg. 491)

I don't think it coincidental that Stephenie put that "Alice shot her a dark look" right after Bella wondered about her fate. Basically, Alice saw her fate and it was something unpleasant. Of course the dark look could have just been a look of dislike, but I like the first idea more! :D
[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]

Gianna

Post by Esme echo »

Good point, Bloodlust! Alice could have seen Gianna's fate. Was she giving Gianna a dark look because she would shortly become a meal, or because she would shortly be feasting, herself? I wonder if we'll find out in Breaking Dawn.

Well, when people give others dark looks, it's usually because of dislike. I don't think Alice would be giving a dark look if she was feeling sorrowful. So maybe she saw Gianna becoming a part of the Volturi... that's obviously her ambition isn't it?

But then, Edward basically gave the cold shoulder to Gianna as well. Was it because of what she was thinking? I know this topic has been touched on, but unless Stephenie appears and says otherwise, we don't actually know what she was thinking behind her manners. Maybe Alice had a vision of Edward telling her later on what was on Gianna's mind, causing dislike on her part as well? Just an idea.

No why would Alice give her a dark look if she was becoming a meal?
surely even Alice can sympathise for someone
who's going to be drained of blood
no, that dark look is because they probably ARE going to keep her.
but WHY would they choose Gianna that is the number one question.
WHY?
what has Gianna shown that all the others havent
surely she must be showing something because she is still there.
it's either that or they dont want to upset Demetri by killing her. But if the REALLY didn't want her then maybe they would wait until Demetri had to go away for a while. Or maybe they would purposfully send him on a wild goosechase. Then when he comes back and sees Gianna dead they'll lie and say it was an accident she tripped ove or some thing. And hope that Demetri wont leave the guard. Not that they would let him leave. :shock:

But those are just theories. Tell me if you like them!

I reviewed the scenes with Gianna and the vampires, and I only found Felix interacting with her. He winked at her when they passed through the room with Bella, but then, Felix also winked at Bella in the baseball field after the battle with the newborns--he seems to enjoy his power over helpless female victims. Demetri didn't have any interreaction with Gianna at all.

I, too, wonder how Gianna was chosen for her job. The Volturi must have wanted a human at that post; was Gianna more observant that the typical Volterran, and so they took her in rather than destroy her immediately? Did she wander in to the building by mistake and get "adopted?" Maybe she fell for a vampire and was lured in ....

I sure wish Stephenie was more interested in writing that portion of New Moon from a different perspective! I bet there would be a high demand for a book of shorts told from several different perspectives!

I don't think that the Voltuir will turn GIanna into a vampire unless she would be usefull...but in the end i think they will change her because Alice gave her a dirty look and that might mean that she saw her feasting on poor inocent people OR hurting them with a power that she gets when/if she becomes a vampire.

When Caius told Edward "when they (the humans) are no longer useful to us, they will serve to sustain us", I was not inclined to hope for the best for Gianna.
