Explain to me this:
During Bella's pregnancy the baby manages to attack her lungs.
The baby had to rip apart all these organs to get to the lungs, (not to mention attacking these organs would have caused a lot more damage)
...what is the purpose of imprinting? If it is a purely random event, then Jacob could have imprinted on Renee, or Charlie, or even his own father. But there is always a boy/girl pairing. Due to the magical classification of werewolves by SM, I also think there is a mystic element, in that the imprinter also finds their true soulmate.

It certainly would be rather peculiar (to put it gently), if Jacob imprinted on Charlie, even though he isn't a bad man ---so i guess, Jacob would be pretty stuffed then, if Renesme chose Nahuel or someone else instead, ha?
As for imprinting itself- I don't know how many people heard, but apparantly, it's a learning process during which newly hatched chicks learn to recognise the features of their mother... ...cute [/color]

Assuming the imprinter is going to give the imprintee whatever it is they need the most, I guess Jacob would have to take over Bella's old chores...for LIFE! That would truly make shape-shifting a curse, with something like that looming over your head.
Ina EssBe wrote:Last but not the least; I would like to get to the bottom of Renesme’s immunity to vampire venom, i.e. would she be immune or NOT immune to it? I personally believe that she would be immune to it because Edward is her father, in other words the vampire gene would make her immune to it and it wouldn’t kill her. But then, there’s this chromosome issue. She has 24 chromosomes, like Jacob. If he gets bitten, then he definitely dies. So this fact poses a counter argument: if Renesme is similar to Jacob, then the venom would be poisonous to her as well.
Openhome wrote:On to Vampire sexual function:
I love this one... SM actually answered this one a bit in one of her interviews. She said that every cell is frozen in its current state, even sperm (new and improved, and sparkly!). The female freezes in her cycle, and the male freezes with the living sperm still living. That part is a stretch, but I can accept it. However, if a male freezes, his ability to make new sperm should also freeze. Honestly, a human male only has about six weeks of fertility at best (given activity every other night or so) after they are snipped in a vasectomy. Thus, only a new, or virgin male vampire should be able to conceive a child, and that would end when those super sperm are used up. However, apparently, the function of making sperm is still intact. The reason it is unbelievable for me is because in that case, a female vampire should then also be able to ovulate.
