Just because Bella said it doesn't mean that SM agrees with it, although I agree that it is likely in this case. And even if she does think that one of the reasons we have this forum is to discuss these issues, even if we disagree with SM. There are other things SM has said that you seem to disagree with. We all have areas where we disagree with her.Violet Sunlight wrote:Firstly, in regards, to Edward and Jacob being a soul mates to Bella, for me, I do see and understand the romantic relationship between Bella & Jacob and if, Bella, sincerely and genuinely, thought that Jacob was her other soul mate in a world where there was no magic/Edward and if SM confirms it, then for me, it is a closed subject.
When I said "safe" I was meaning ultimately. She always felt safe with Edward in Twilight, and says so several times. That is, she always knew he was strong enough to resist the temptation to kill her.Violet Sunlight wrote:I certainly, agree about the baby. However, Bella’s broken and bruised body and her NM catatonic state of mind, etc., do not lead me to believe she was right about being safe with Edward as a human. IMO, as a human, I don’t think she was right to be in a vampire relationship to begin with. But, being that Edward is her soul mate in the supernatural world she lives in, she, understandably, had to make arrangements to correct that error hence, the reason she decides to become a vampire.
It's still clear that it wasn't Bella's humanity that attracted Jake, or he would have imprinted on her. Renesmee has additional elements that attract him.Violet Sunlight wrote:I DON’T believe Renemee’s humanity is an exact duplicate/clone of Bella’s humanity. IMO, Renesmee represents a type/part/image of Bella’s humanity.
Yes, it is interesting that he seems to have got over this prejudice entirely by the time Renesmee is old enough to go hunting, presumably because he's seen the level of control that the Cullens have over that base instinct. It would be interesting to know whether Renesmee's thirst is as strong as theirs or if it is slightly less because she has human elements and can exist on human food.Violet Sunlight wrote:I was referring to Renesmee’s thirst/craving for human blood, like I have said in the past, it is the vampire’s burden/handicap to bear. I wasn’t referring to anything else. I thought that was what you were originally referring to. I thought Jacob’s biggest contention about vampires was their thirst for human blood. He is always saying, blood sucker this and blood sucker that, all the time. My apologies, for the misunderstanding.
