Okay, I can square my shoulders now and make a post.
Ironically enough, it was partly due to the Rosalie thread on the Lex that softened my opinion of Rose. As the Lex manifesto implies, Rosalie is more than just a pretty face. I find it interesting that despite Bella's perception of Rosalie in Twilight and New Moon, Rosalie is actually pretty "ordinary" as far as vampires go. I used to guess that all vampires had special abilities and that Rosalie was extra beautiful (and Emmett was extra strong), but now that we've met more vampires (and noticed the lack of the asterisk near Rosalie's name in the back of Breaking Dawn), it seems that Bella was comparing Rose to other humans and getting the wrong impression.
Rosalie's character really began to "flesh out" (pardon the pun) in Eclipse and even more so in Breaking Dawn. She provided some comic relief, since Edward and Jacob were on the same side and so there was no longer the same kind of exchanging of barbs between them.
In the old Rosalie thread, a group of us wondered about how Rosalie killed her fiance without spilling his blood or drinking his blood - Rosalie bragged about having a cleaner record than Esme on that count. (There were some great theories about that; I think I imagined that she strangled him or beat him to death with a blunt object, like a bat, so that she never was tempted). Yet, in Breaking Dawn, she threatens Jake by saying that she has killed quite a lot of people. Any thoughts on that?
