Then, when they're old enough, they'll get together, establish a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. I think that it was a good way to keep Jacob and Bella's friendship cuz what would have kept Jacob there? He would have ran off again cuz he would have not liked the idea of Bella becoming a vamp. Bella would have lost her best half-way human friend. All her other best friends have no ties to the human world, so keeping her friendship with Jacob was a good thing, and him imprinting on Nessie was a good way to keep that.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong, please) that is was holdingoutforjacob that made a comment about how Renesmee is unrelatable as a character- that she's just kind of there, as this perfect little being. She kind of reminds me of the One Ring in LotR- we know it's magical, we know that if it fell into the wrong hands it would spell doom for all, but we don't really know just what the heck it does, specifically. And yet an entire story ends up revolving around it.
I also agree with how quickly Jacob went from Bella to Renesmee without so much as a "Huh?" What seems funny to me is, we spend the majority of the time post-birth being told that Renesmee's this wonderful, unique little being (who could probably sprout fairy wings at any given moment and no one would bat an eyelash), and then suddenly at the end we're being told "Oh no- she's not unique. It's happened before," like that would make everything all right.

Imprinting seems to be one of those things that no-one has any control over, it is fated, meant to happen, never any way that anyone or thing can change it.
