Re: Worried about the New Moon movie?

As well as being worried about EVERYTHING, I also worry about stupid lines, like "hold on tight spidermonkey." Sorry, I don't see an early 20th century gentleman saying that to his soulmate. Or to anyone actually.

Re: Funniest Twilight Saga Moments

Loved Bella's line in TW during breakfast before going to meet the Cullens.

"What's for breakfast," I asked pleasantly.
"Er, I"m not sure. What would you like?"
"That's all right. I fend for myself pretty well. Watch me hunt."
I found a bowl and box of cereal.

Greetings from Ohio

How did you pick your screen name? Well, my sn is slightly_torn_page. I love to visit used books stores and I always know when I've found a great book-some of the pages will be slightly torn or worn. On a deeper level, aren't we all just a little slightly torn up? How did you come to read Twilight ...

Re: Setting the book to music

I stumbled across this song about a month ago...(before I read Twilight.) The whole time I was reading the book, I was humming this song without even realizing it. It's a little sappy, but I think about Twilight every time I hear it. Eric Nicholas, Song for my Future Wife http://www.ilike.com/artist...

Re: Bella's Dreams

I, too, believe her dreams were somewhat precognitive. I also was waiting for a "fight" between Edward and Jacob resulting from her dream. After thinking about it though, perhaps her dream didn't signal a physical fight as much as it did a mental or emotional one. Edward and Jacob definitely were at...

Re: Choices aka Ars Longa Vita Brevis

Perhaps Alice's vision of Bella's future was NOT the result of Edward's decision making. What if Alice was prophecizing on a decision made by Bella? Even that early in TW, Alice could have seen this vision because it related to Edward and to herself. Bella's decion at that time wasn't necessarily to...

Re: Edward, Bella, and Nessie as a family

Although there were not many written scenes involving Edward and Nessie, I believe some of Edward's actions spoke true to his amazing role as a father. He was able to put his bias for Jacob aside and allow Jacob to be around Nessie. He knew Jacob was going to be exactly what Nessie needed/wanted. He...

Re: Most Romantic Scene in the Twilight Series

Another one I would add that isn't here (I dont' think, anyway) is from the Midnight Sun draft. Everything with the bottle cap from Bella's lemonade. Especially when he uses it to remember her when he's composing her lullaby. It's just so adorable! "Play the new song for me one more time, " Esme ask...

Re: How many times have you read the saga?

Re: Favorite Quotes from the Saga

This is one of Edward's thoughts in Midnight Sun. "I could not dream of her. She should not dream of me." This is when his "transformation" happens and he finally realizes how deeply in love with Bella he is. Of course, she already is in love with him. To me, it speaks of how selfless he is in not w...
