I think that even though Rose comes off mean and callouse in the begining, she is the one that cares the MOST! Besides Edward, she's helping Bella think through her decision, shes worring about her, she making sure she doesn't blow her life! That's not mean, that may one of the kindest things ever! But, as to liking Bella, I think that makes Rosalie even nicer in a way, she can't help that she doesn't like Bella (I mean, lets face it: she does have some good reasons), but she tries to help her anyways.
So I think once Rosalie lets her gaurd down, and realizes that the right choice for her is not the right choice for Bella (and that Bella is weird, so she always goes on the contrary :lol: ) that she and Bella will become friends.....who know maybe bestfriends!

I agree, even though Rosalie really hasn't done much within the series to make her a likeable charcter, i feel there is SOME good in her. Sure, you have to look deeper to see it- but can you really blame her? There were definitie moments in Eclipse where i really felt Rosalie and Bella have a connection; hopefully it will be brought out more in Breaking Dawn

Yes, I hope in Breaking Dawn that Rose gets to show her otherside, come to cope with the fact that she did all she can do, and Bella is going to pick to be a vampire anyways.
I think that if things hadn't happened the way they did, the things that led up to Rose's change, Royce King and having everything she though she wanted and then having it replaced with I life that she never wanted, then she wouldn't have the same views. She wanted to have kids, now she can't, she also wanted to be able to age, now she can't. All the things that she was so close to where taken from her. She realized later that she didn't love Royce and she wouldn't be happy with but she never got a chance to find that out--she's pigheaded sometimes so she still insists that's what she would have wanted. like when you pick something that you really don't want, and someone tells you thats not what you will want later. But then you act all snobby, and tell them that your sure thats what will make you happy. But then you find out that the other person was right, and that what you picked would have made you misrable. Nobody wants to be wrong, so then you insist that you still would have wanted what you chose.
I think that what Rose is doing, clinging to what she wanted, instead of being wrong, even if that means not being happy with what you have, no matter how good you have it.
Edward always said that Rosalie's actions were based on the most convoulted kinds of logic.

And I think if Rosalie had gotten what she really wanted first as opposed to last: Emmett, she would have seen everything more the way Bella does. Sure she would still be upset, but she would be able to get over it easier. And be happy with the fact that she got Emmett, the love of ther life. But now she can't really appreciate it as much.

See, I think she does appreciate Emmett. And I think that for those who can see inside her mind, (ahem, Edward), they can see that she does realize how right Emmett is for her. But it seems that if Rosalie did not have Emmett, she would've rather died, than become a vampire. It sounds rather harsh, but I think she is probably really unhappy with what she has become. But she's growing on me. I think she does have some shallow, jealous, vain tendencies, but she is trying to prevent Bella from making the same mistake that she made. Even though she had no choice, she still blames herself for what happened, and she doesn't want that to happen for Bella. In her own strange way, Rosalie cares.

I love Rosalie. She's my favorite Vampire. Yes even above Edward.
And most certainly above Alice. I really must be the only Twilight fan who find her annoying.
Anyways Rosalie is a very well rounded character. She's the regretful vampire. Listening to her explain the limitations was probably one of my favorite chapters in Eclipse. It always annoyed me that we didn't know why Rosalie was so indifferent to Bella. At first I thought SM was just using her to say that not everyone liked Bella which like everyone does in the series except for a handful of minor characters.
Rosalie is just awesome. Very realistic. She has the same additude I believe I would have if I'd been changed into a vampire.
