What is this? Where is everyone? No love for Charlie??

Totally would want Charlie for my dad. He's so mellow.
I wish my boyfriend sparkled.

Charlie is lucky that Bella is so mature and well-behaved. He pretty much lets her do whatever she wants, although he got stricter after the leaving forks and going to phoenix episode.

I cannot imagine him with a wild child. Like if Bella were a partier, she could stay out so late and Charlie wouldn't care.

I wonder what his reaction would be if Bella told him she is dating a vampire?

Bella: Hey dad! I just wanted to let you know that Edward Cullen, my boyfriend/soulmate, is a vampire. He has actually been "alive" for almost 100 years. And, I might become a vampire too. So - I am just warning you in case I suddenly become really pale, my eyes turn red, I stop eating regular food, and sparkle in the sun. But we love each other, so you do not mind, right?


For some reason I do not think that would go over too well.

I love Charlie...it's just he is so hands off most of the book you tend to forget he is a great dad!

It seems to me he worries more about Bella then her mom!

I don't know what it is about Charlie, but I think you can't help but like him. Maybe I'm just baised because I would want a father like him, because I think he really does try to be a good father to Bella. I remember Mrs. Meyer mentioning somewhere that he may have a love interest if she takes that path in a future novel... I really wonder who it would be.... :D
Bestiality is one step above necrophilia.

Charlie, besides Edward, is the best male character, in my opinion, for all reasons everyone posted above.

A female for Charlie? I'd actually rather he remain the way he is since I can't see him with anyone who'd make him AND Bella happy at the same time.

Back before I knew Jasper and Alice were an item, I thought Alice might one day hook up with Charlie. That way, all the Swans would get vampire partners and Bella would get a stepmother she liked. (By the way, my original take on Alice and Bella's reltionship was a more maternal one) Though the vampire part of it might still be a possibilty- how about adding another plot usage to the Denali clan?

I should write a list titled "101 Uses For Characters That Haven't Appeared In the Books Yet" :)

Anyway, I think of Charlie as a character who could have a lot of potential if more pagetime was devoted to him. If another POV of Twilight was written, Chief Swan's view would be an interesting take on the book. Because we see him only from a teenage daughter's perspective, the "real" Charlie could have a far deeper personality than we are aware.

Wow! It's funny to me how different we all see things when reading the same book!

I NEVER saw Alice as a maternal figure towards Bella...and much less potential with hooking up with Charlie! Nope...never ever did that cross my mind!

Alice has always been a teen in my eyes, older then Bella...but somehow less mature...and here you have her on a totally different spectrum!

Cool...weird in my mind...but cool!

I have always seen Alice as the sister Bella never had.
And Emmett as the brother she never had.
