I mean, can you imagine this scene?
7 years later, Jacob and Nessie sharing an intimate moment.....
Jacob: Y'know, Ness, a few years back I was in love with your mom. In fact, I tried to rape her and then she punched me in the face.
Nessie: Oh, really?
Jacob: Yup. It's the truth.
Nessie: Oh. Well, I guess that's ok becuase we're like, freakishly in love with each other now, right?
Jacob: Sure, sure.
Does anyone else feel like their relationship is just... wrong? I mean, think about this for a second. Bella doesn't jump, Edward doesn't get suicidal, Bella never saves him. Bella and Jacob fall in love, get married, have a kid. Does Jacob imprint on his own child?! Nessie + Jacob = borderline incest.
I guess I just feel like Stephenie could have definitely come up with a more creative way to keep Jake in the story. He shouldn't have imprinted on some little cannibalistic half-human, half-vampire with a fondness for blood. After all, isn't it his job to protect the world from creatures like Nessie?

Though I didn't dislike Breaking Dawn, I did think it became a little too convoluted and it sometimes felt like Stephanie was adding things just for the sake of adding things rather than to tell a great story.
I do agree with you on the use of imprinting on Nessie as a plot-device, though. As soon as Bella "gave birth" (more like a C-section gone awry but whatever) I knew Jacob was going to imprint on the baby. And, dude, I was creeped out. I mean, he was in love with her MOTHER for cryin' out loud. It's so many kinds of wrong, I agree. And that's before you even look at the fact that she's HALF-vampire. I mean, I follow the message that Stephanie is trying to convey through the entire situation but it doesn't change the fact that it's...it's ....gross.
