And yet, Edward succeeded in resisting the temptation to kill, but Jacob failed, in fact he didn't even resist, and was only saved by the miracle of imprinting. That's what is incomprehensible to me, that such an event wouldn't have an effect on Jacob. Edward never forgot that his first instinct with Bella was to kill her, but for Jacob there doesn't appear to be any insights gained, no introspection, and therefore no humility. I wonder if Edward had ever caught Jacob's intention to kill Renesmee. Maybe he should bring it up one day, and then ask Jacob why he has never told Nessie, that she has a right to know, ala Eclipse and the motorcycle scene.
Tornado wrote: Besides, it's pretty clear from how SM wrote that scene that it's the desire to imprint that is dragging him towards Renesmee, rather than the desire to kill. He just doesn't understand that until he experiences it, so ascribes a different emotion to the desire, based on what he is feeling at the time.

And, between how we know the imprints between Quil & Claire, Embry and...damn, I can't remember her name off the top of my head and I don't have my books, but the girl in his high school class,
Jazz Girl wrote:and especially after reading in the OIG discussion of Sam & Emily, I can't say I agree. There is nothing in any of the descriptions of the other imprints that suggests that they were pulled to their imprintees. It only indicates that, once they had gone through phasing the first time, then they saw that person and the imprinting was instantaneous and permanant. Yes, Jacob uses the excuse of some sort of physical draw to Ness to explain the need to remain in her life and her need to have him around, but I can't say that I ever truly believed that. It just isn't supported by the other information we have. So, I always read it as exactly as you described; seeking her out with the intent to kill her.
Tornado wrote:Yes, I've wondered too, if vampires can have more than one talent. But I always thought that Renesmee's attractiveness possibly had more to do with her age. Remember, the immortal children were also attractive and people fought to the death to protect them. It may be just because the beauty inherent in a child was captured in them when they were changed. This may be the same for Renesmee. I don't know if it will last beyond her childhood, though.
