I am sorry but they can give us a visual of everything and make it classy,tender and romantic all wrapped up in one. If they could do it on prime time tv and show then they can do it on the pg13 movie. So my fingers are crossed and praying to SM and Summit gods above!

I know there are action sequences and such added to the first 3 that were implied rather than written in the books, but to have Jake imprint on someone completely different and some of the other suggestions are things that change entire plots from the book!

You can't have it both ways here...either you want Stephenies version of BD as it's written, or what YOU think it should be and I'm sure when it's all said and done, it will be her work on the screen and not any of ours.

Since Breaking Dawn is written from Bella's and Jacob's perspectives it doesn't show us that Renesmee may have had a very strong bond with her father. It only shows us what Bella is told after she wakes up and it follows closely what happens to Bella. There are several months during this time that nothing is mentioned about their daily "routine". It's clear to me that Edward is very protective of his daughter, and it never tells us that Jacob stays at the cottage with Bella so why would he be considered "playing house" with Bella? I think ya'll are reading waaaay too much into a whole other story that has nothing to do with anything in the saga. Just my opinion though...

I meant in the book, I think Stephenie should have written it so that Jacob and Leah get together instead of him getting his "happily ever after" so easily. I hate it when authors take the easy way out and make sure all of their characters are happy in the end. As far as the movie goes, Jacob will imprint on Renesmee, and I will be okay with it because that's how Stephenie wrote it. I just wish she didn't.
DramaPrincezz013 wrote:And yes, an action sequence. ZOMG ACTION???!!! Yes. Action. Read those chapters in Breaking Dawn. They're nicely written, and it kept me intrigued, but it wouldn't translate well at all to the big screen. So much of it is internal, and from the outside looking in, it doesn't look like much at all is happening. And also, what about New Moon? That fight was added. Edward and Felix didn't have that little spat in the book.

She's a flipping baby, and he'll still be about 20 yrs her senior and watched her grow up], an action sequence when the Volturi comes to Forks).

Jacob imprinting - don't make him imprint on someone else, just make no mention of him imprinting on a newborn baby. Find another reason why he sticks around the vampires because like I said, it's wrong in my book and it's not something I want seen on the big screen. She a baby, and he's old enough to be her father. He loves Bella, so make him wanting to protect her daughter reason enough for him to stay.
Stephenie screwed up once with writing Breaking Dawn the way she did after the time line changed, IMO, and if she screws up the adaptation...well, I'll have a hard time swallowing anything else she writes.[/color]
