GenevieveCullen wrote:SPOILERS-- The Dominate (my two cents)

What do you think would have happened in this chapter if Bella had suddenly professed her love for Domward, out loud?
Honestly, I think it would have made things worse. Domward would never have believed that she could love him. He's lied to her, believes he's manipulated her. Can't remember if this is book or movie, "That's because you believe the lie/Everything about me draws you in".

If she told him she loved him, he would only hate himself more. Bookward knew that Bookbella loved him but he still left. Let's face it, our --wards are idiots with one track minds. They get silly ideas about unworthiness and being monster, they completely disregard anything anyone else says that tells them otherwise.

Why did Domward offer to recommend other Doms?
From previous chapters I got the impression that Domward believes SubBella only wants him for the D/s relationship, that she couldn't possibly want more from him, not that he'd believes he could give it. Domward is concerned about her needs, but he can only understand the physical ones.

This is the weirdest (and only) book club I've ever been in :lol:

:lol: :lol: Me too, Jen!

You guys were awesome with all the insightful comments on The Dominant. Discussing all this great stuff actually made me feel a little more scholarly and a little less smutty. :lol:

More Spoilers for The Dominant

As far as Domward recommending other Doms for Bella: even though I spit curse words at him through my computer monitor, I really think in his heart of broken hearts, this was Domward's misguided attempt to provide for Bella and to meet her needs. I think he knows that Bella really and truly is the Submissive type of personality. Remember that Bella had not had sex for six years prior to her relationship with Domward, and her previous encounters had been very unfulfilling for her. I guess Domward selflessly thought he would rather Bella be happy and fulfilled, even if she couldn't be so with him. It kind of reminds me of Breaking Dawn when Edward foolishly suggested to Jacob that he impregnate Bella if she'll give up the idea of trying to carry Edward's baby to term.

I'm also loving Dangerous Affections, In the Blink of an Eye, Creature of Habit, The Office, Life After Forks (yay, Amanda Beth), Madman's Mercy, and The List too. Damn all this uncompleted fanfiction! :D

OMG QUESTION! Question!!!!! I have a question.

About WA!

I was thinking about how I've heard that AG mentioned she's trying to get WA published as a romance novel sort of thing. (First in line to buy it! OMG FIRST!). I'm not sure of copyright laws but I'm pretty sure she's not going to be able to use a lot of the same material she used from Twilight -- including the characters names. SO, I was wondering -- how would the story be changed for you if/when it wasn't Edward & Bella anymore? Or Jasper & Alice? Do you think the characters/plot will have the same impact on you if the characters have to become, say, Stanley and Regina?

(side note, unrelated to question: OMG the timid click. The timid click of the bathroom door in Bye Bye Brandy Snaps EPOV gets me every time *tear*).

MORE DOMINANT DISCUSSION

Tracy, your comparison between Domward's offering of other doms to Bella, to the scene in BD when Edward wants to offer up Jacob for 'services' was dead on. Both -wards just want to give Bella everything they think she deserves, not realizing that they are what she wants.

Good morning everyone. :)

The voting for The Indie Twific Awards is officially open!

It says you can vote for up to ten stories per category. Not sure if that allows you to vote multiple times for the same stories in the category.

Thank you for voting! /bow

EDIT: I just noticed there are red text fields next to the story titles in the Most Original Character category. I'm not sure if you're supposed to put the character's name in there. I've emailed them to clarify.

Okay Rings, you got my vote. There were so many stories that I didn't recognize. Just Once Bitten, Twice Shy which also got my vote and Starry Night.
Anyway, good luck!

Thanks navarre!

I hope you voted for Giovanni too, under Best Original Character. I've been telling people to put his name in the red text field next to the story title. :)

If your first in line, I'm second!! I think the main copyright issue she'll have is the names. I heard somewhere she planned to rename Edward as "Wade" cuz it's kinda like "Wide Awake". The town of Forks will also have to be changed but there's tons of small towns on the West Coast. Not sure if she'll have to change Chicago but even then, Detroit could be a good substitute (I think, geography, not my forte). She hasn't really used any Twilight quotes and any similar situations to Twilight can be written off as allusions (like SM and all her classics). The story can pretty much stand on it's own legs without it's original counterpart (plus all us original readers will know the deeper connections behind all the relationships).

Tracy~ Doms/Jacob comparison, brilliant!

I love that these in depth discussions hide the fact it's all smut :lol:

Gen - I have to agree that all of the discussions have been smut free. That too is brilliant!!

I am so enjoying all of the fan fics and I am absoutely LOVING all of these in depth discussions. I love to read but I personally find that I tend to be a shallow reader and all of everyone's different insights, thoughts, observations and discussions really deepen my understanding and enjoyment of the stories. Keep up the good work and discussions everyone!!

navarre wrote:Hey Trine ~ I was just looking at your large banner with Rob/Kristen and the quote "the most important thing to me ever"
and I was struck by how that picture looks just like how I would imagine Edward/Bella of The Ex-Factor would look.

Perfection!

Oh, and the middle one in my multi-pic banner with Rob in his white sexy shirt with his sexy hand just inside his sexy shirt on his sexy shoulder looking incredibly smokin' HOT and sexy..... :shock:
Uhhhh, yeah..... TEF Edward all the $#@! way, bb's!!

:D

If that's the case, then I'm definitely reading it as soon as possible. I love that picture in your signature! Julie chose my picture, and I really like it.

Erika - I think it will change the story somewhat for me if WA is published with changed names and places. Simply because I relate so much to Edward and Bella, and I can see so much of Edward in Darkward. And I like the fact that WA has Twilight-related moments without actually copying what happened in Twilight. That's something I find enjoyable in all the fics I read. But I think I will still love it, and I guess I'll read it and rename the characters back again in my head :) I'm third in line :D I agree with Jen, that it can stand on it's own without Edward and Bella, and it has to if it's ever going to be published. And it really should be. It would a shame if a great work like that is not published.

Tracy - great comparison with Edward's offer in BD. I didn't think of that. Edward was just so desperate to save her that he would do anything. And in a way, so is Domward.

David- I just voted for you. And I put Giovanni in the red field. Best of luck!
