1. Does Bella really understand all that she will give up in becoming immortal? Do you think her understanding is limited by her age, life experience, or something else?
I think that Bella has a general idea of what she will be giving up. I do not think her age has anything to do with it, since people mature at different ages. People are able to make life-altering decisions at 18. Bella has had a lot of time to prepare for becoming a vampire, and she knows that this is what she wants. She might not know all the details about the future, but she knows that she wants that future to be with Edward. And I think that she was ready to make the transition at this point. She has spent so much time with the Cullen's and knows a lot about how they live, so I think she was as prepared as anyone can be. And she has made the conscious choice to be with Edward forever,and join his lifestyle.2. What do you think Emmett and Jasper were going to do for Edward's bachelor party? Was Jasper telling the truth?
I think they went hunting. And probably spent some time having fun in the woods. Measuring their strenght and things like that. Male bonding
So I think Jasper was telling the truth. And...I can not imagine Edward at a stripclub. That would be the last place you would find him.3. Tanya made a play for Edward long ago. We don't know much about Tanya, but we know quite a bit about Edward. Why do you think he turned her down?
Mostly I think it was because she was not what he was looking for. He wanted someone more like himself, more innocent. And someone that intrigued him more, that could catch his attention. I think he knew that he was searching for something in his life, but his soulmate was not even born yet at this point. But I think he was fully aware that Tanya was not the one for him. And Edward was not the type to date just for the fun of it. He wanted it to mean something.4. About Immortal children. At what age or developmental stage would the Volturi allow them to be created? A two-year-old usually understands the word no, but evidently that wasn't enough. How would they determine if the child could "keep the secret"? What would the determining test(s) be?
I would say that they would not change anyone that was younger than a teenager. 14-15. It is only from this age on that you can be sure of a person, since they are now approaching adulthood. But this is just my opinion..I'm not sure what the Voltur would think.
