I know Jake thought of Bella like she WAS his imprting, but she's obviously not. Could you love someone who by good chance may at any time fall in love with someone else? I couldn't.

They are the closest of friends imaginable, considering that Jacob healed her "hole" during Edward's regrettable absence, but he pursued a higher relationship with Bella that was not meant for him. As she said when Jacob insisted on repeatedly crossing a line with their relationship, it was always meant to be Edward since her first step into his world. Bella's belief that she is irrevocably linked with Edward is only validated when she feels his overwhelming love for her as an immortal companion.

It has always been about the forbidden love between Bella and Edward and all of the adventures that have followed. With the improbable birth of Renesmee, Jacob was able to embrace an extension of Bella, so he was not deprived of a happy ending. It's undeniable that things did work out, but not exactly in the way that he anticipated: for Jacob, a new destiny was revealed, hence the imprinting and his subsequent bonding with Renesmee, who is so much more than your average child. If you believe that destiny works its mysterious ways in the Twilight series, then you should be able to acknowledge that the pairing between Jacob and Renesmee was supposed to happen, as opposed to Jacob and Bella (who was meant to be with the Cullen family).

Some of the funniest moments in the series would have to be the sarcastic conversations between Bella and Edward. Furthermore, a few of the most energetic characters in the entire saga are Alice and Emmett "Big Bear" Cullen, who happily embraced Bella as their sibling after the transformation. Also: VAMPIRE BASEBALL!

How about we get back to the discussion about Jacob though - or maybe we should switch the forums, since we just had this discussion in the Bella thread!!
