smitten_by_twilight wrote:Technically true. But, counting Nessie as born in 2006, she is probably physiologically mature enough for *ahem* a mature relationship right now, and we know that she was born mentally quite mature - she seems to have been adding skills, rather than having traditional neurological development. And when a girl thinks she's ready ....

corona wrote:And thinking about this, I wonder in the fanfic world what the average age of Nessie was before she started sailing with Jacob, and what the earliest fanfic age actually was? I suppose if I had to write one myself, I might choose 10 as the very earliest age I would consider, and I still would probably be uncomfortable with that. Theoretically I can entertain the possibility of something happening within the next couple of years, but as a writer I would give a lot more consideration to not pushing that particular envelope too far.
HOWEVER (and here I will contradict everything I just said ), Stephenie has played around with this before, notably in The Host. I suppose you could compare Wanda to Nessie in that regard, and I wonder whether she was thinking of Nessie as she was wrapping up Wanda's story (if you've read the book, you'll know exactly what I mean).
smitten_by_twilight wrote:Sure. Jacob's role is to be what Nessie needs, right? What if she tends to need him as an older brother figure? Jacob could end up as the 108, and counting, year old virgin. And happy to boot. Boy oh boy ....

The Nessie conversation is one I'm glad you all have kept mostly clean. That one squeaks me out. In fact, I've played with a post-BD future where they have no ship to shore relationship at all. Taking that whole conversation that Jacob and Bella had about Quil & 2 yr old Claire, it could be possible. Right?
