Feel free to participate in any part of, or this entire discussion. I am trying a couple of new ideas. If our members find them interesting and want to participate, I will continue them, Your friend, Doc
Introduction: A love bond is a real psychological phenomenon, by which a part of the ego (or soul, "thxs T") of one lover blends with their partner's. It binds them together, and usually makes each person psychologically stronger. For example: The love bond that grew between Edward and Bella, gave Edward the added strength to accept a fate (many times worse than death for him) and leave his beloved Bella. Coincidentally his love bond was what compelled him to decide to return to her later in the story.
Werewolf Alpha commands: Are orders given by a Werewolf pack's Alpha member. They compel other members to obey. For example: When Sam ordered the pack to kill Nese, as much as Jacob didn't want to, he knew that he couldn't stop himself from participating in the killing of both her and Bella. Jacob's accepting his role as a new Alpha Werewolf, was all that prevented him from participating in their deaths.
Werewolf imprinting: Is the establishment of a lifetime attachment by a Werewolf to a human mate. And it compels the Werewolf to be attracted to this mate and to reject any other. It also compels the Werewolf to care for and look after the interests of his mate. Example: Sam had developed a moderately strong love bond with Leah, but from the moment he imprinted on Emily, his affections and concern were only for her and would be until the day he died.

Question, 5: WRITE question (to be placed on this discussions counterpoint list) about "Twilight Saga" Werewolf Imprinting, Werewolf Alpha orders, Or human love bonds, that you would like for our discussion team to debate.
I am introducing a new "extra credit" question system to our Rose discussions: They are questions about Stephanie Meyers life (from her interviews) and her "Words of Wisdom, "Twilight" Style.
Question number 1. Stephanie Quote: “In my church (The Mormom Church) we are prohibited from having sex prior to marriage." Consequently a Mormon girl typically gets proposed to multiple times. I had been proposed to at college and declined. Then I returned home and there was Christian ! (PP)
Question: If you were to guess, how many times do you think that Christian Meyer ask Stephanie to marry him? Ref: "Phoenix New Times" article.
Stephanie Question No, 2:
Stephanie “As I became more involved in writing “Twilight,” changes developed in my daily schedule." I even quit going to my scrap book club entirely. I was just too embarrassed to tell my husband that I was writing a “Vampire romance novel.” (PP) And it was taking away from our time together. Easy going Christian became testy and then finally came the day, when he made the painful accusation that he thought that Stephanie was …….?
