Yay!!Really new thread!! Cool 1. The tentative friendship between Bella and Rosalie has survived Renesmee’s arrival intact. Why do you think Rosalie is more tolerant of Bella since Bella still went ahead with the change? Do you agree with Bella when she says it’s because she’d finally made the same choice that Rosalie would have made if she was in the same position?
I think Rosalie is more tolerant of Bella even though she goes the change because she married Edward first and then changed and not the other way around. Maybe if she had changed first then, she might have had a problem with that. I do agree that as far as having to choose between aborting the pregnancy or having Renesmee she did make the same choice that Rosalie would have made.2. Bella is happy and somewhat amazed that she is still very much “herself,” even after the change, like her hatred of surprises. Did you have any expectations that Bella’s personality would be altered, that she would be irrevocably changed in all ways?
I did not expect her personality to change at all as far as hating suprises and receiving gifts. I sort of expected her to act a little more like a newborn vamp, maybe a little more blood crazed.3. Esme went to great lengths to give Bella and Edward a place of their own. What was your reaction to the cottage?
I really liked the idea of the cottage and sort of expected that since it was mentioned before hand that Rosalie and Emmett sometimes lived separately from the rest of the family. The style of the cottage is exactly right for Bella and Edward.4. Some interesting desires come to surface during this chapter. Were you expecting Bella and Edward to be so drawn in by them or were you expecting them to be more in control? Were you shocked to learn about the other members of the family and their lack of control?
I was not expecting Edward or Bella to lose control the way they did sometimes. I was really shocked to see the rest of the family lose control since they are always in control and this time around we really got to see them being themselves more.5. Bella fears that Edward will miss her humanness. When she confronts him, he initially dances around answering the question. Do you believe that Edward really doesn’t miss it? Do you think he has some regrets or misgivings?
I think he does miss some of those things like he said before: when she blushes or just listening to her heart beating, but when he doesn't have to kiss an inferno and watch himself while she tried to cross his safety boundaries while they were alone and not crush her when he is holding her then I don't think he misses that
