did anyone else find it a little, i guess annoying that a bunch of the vampires had all these talents? I mean, i know it said in one of the PC's that a good percentage of vampires are talented, but i just thought it was kitzchey that Eleazar could sense other people's talents. I think bella could have found out in another way and the story would have been just as smooth.

I think that might have been cooler if Bella had found out a different way. It was just too easy with Eleazar being able to sense her powers. Part of me did kinda wish that it after all these vampires with mental talents not being able to hurt her, either Carlisle or Edward realized that she had this power.

I figured that there were more vampires out there than the book presented that I never really thought about all the special vampires. It really hasn't been long enough for it to annoy me. This is what happens when you start reading the books twenty days before the movie come out.

But how would other people know Bella had a power if nobody sensed that she had one?

I love the fact that the vampires have 'talents'. It sets them apart even more from the humans... gives them another... edge.
But I also like the fact that some of them don't. While the talents set them apart from humans, they also make vamps just like us. Some people are good at things, have hobbies... and some people don't, you know. The vampires that have no powers are more human, but so far from that, still...you know? Maybe not... I don't know how much sense I make to other people.

Ben's talent intrigued me from the moment I read about it.
I'll admit, I'm a HUGE Avatar fan, so the idea of manipulating the elements always interested me. I'd never even begun to imagine that a vampire could do something like this, though. I guess that at first, I thought the vampires could only do things that were mental... but I thought about all the times that Alice and Edward described that some talents are physical and some mental. I wondered how Ben found out about his gift and how he learned to control it. The bending of the elements is huge and one of a kind, I'm sure... I wonder how long it took him to be in complete control over it. Or maybe it's not like that at all? Maybe it was just natural to him and he didn't have to practice, unlike Bella's shield?

If I was able to have one.. no wait two.. alright threee talents they would be:
Ben's : controlling of the elements
Alice: seeing the future
Zafrina's: putting images into people's heads.

I don't know why but those three just really have an appeal to me.
I loved BD when we were discovering everyones powers, it was awesome. I love the chapters with all the different vampires.

Also to the girl up there ^^^

I would like Edward's and to hear what people think, but it might get overwhelming hearing everything all the time and not being able to shut it off. So maybe I will take Aro's... hmmm. Either way it would be fun. I like Alice's too! :D

If I was turned into a Vampire and had a special ability like Edward and those. I would want the ability to manipulate the mind. That is just vague enough to allow for a lot of possibilities which includes reading thoughts and inducing thoughts (Making others hear yours)

Or the ability to create a collective like the wolf's pack mind. Allowing those around me to hear my thoughts and me theres, as well as see through their eyes, and get their senses which would make a fight much easier since you would have many more points of view to judge attacks and such. Also if they could share pain it would be a good weapon.
(I mean imagine linking your mind to all the volturi and then jane does her thing on her, she would end up burning her friends to)

I was a little disappointed when just about everyone we met during the book had a talent. Maybe that's just because Carlisle has a way of befriending talented vampires but it did seem a little strange to me.


Actually, as stephenie explained in a Q & A session i found, the reason such a majority of the vampire community have special talents are because vampires have a very "shallow" view on the humans they are going to change. They are drawn to people who are special...above the rest. Think of it like a shallow man in a bar, hes not going to buy every girl a drink..he's drawn to the most attractive. I belive stephenie actually said something like well over half of the vampire population have a special talent.

If I had a vampire talent, I'd want Edward's but I'd want to be able to block out some people - so if I wanted complete quiet - I'd get it. Then, I'd want Alice's visons because it's such an advantage! (well, any talent at all would be a huge advantage) but seeing the futur seems so cool!!
