The Twilight Saga

So, apparently, there is not going to be a marriage proposal at the end of New Moon. They've changed it up a bit according to Life & Style. I haven't read the magazine and none of the sites I've seen have revealed what the change is, but apparently--

"The shocking ending - "After not saying 'I love you' in Twilight, will Edward propose to Bella in the sequel? In the original story, Edward tells Bella he'll turn her into a vampire only if they get married, but after obtaining the latest version of the New Moon script, Life & Style can exclusively report that Edward has a different bargaining chip up his sleeve..."

I remember last month Lainey Gossip reporting, "There’s a tense discussion between the three of them, then Taylor/Jacob leaves and wolf-transforms, then between KS and RP it gets kinda romantic as there’s talk of a wedding. Or something. They are shooting several options for a proposal, this is one of them – you’ll have to wait to see which they end up choosing."

So what does everyone think?

For me, I intensely dislike the idea of no proposal! It sets up so much in Eclipse as Edward keeps reminding her of what she needs to do in order to turn vamp... I'm officially annoyed. This "or something" better be really, really good. But what could be better than marrying Edward...other than shagging him! ;0

I feel your pain. It's the same screenwriter for NM as Twi so not surprising that things are getting changed/deleted. I hate it, but nothing to be done about it. Must view movies as separate entities from novels or no enjoyment at all for me.
Well, I don't disagree about Rosenberg, but to be fair, if you've watched the movie with the commentary on, it does seem like Hardwicke herself changed a lot of dialogue & some scenes during filming.
THE SAGA IS SO GREAT--WHY THEY HAVE TO SCREW WITH IT I'LL NEVER KNOW----PLEASE SOMEBODY STICK TO THE BOOKS!!!
Twi-Smile, I would've blown it off too if Lainey hadn't also reported that something 'different' was being taped. She's been spot on re: a lot of things, which is why I'm giving L&S the benefit of the doubt here....much to my disappointment!!!
They have to have the proposal... Thats how we get eclipse... You cant have eclipse without the proposal...
I wonder if this new "bargaining chip" is going to be I will turn you myself if you stay away from the werewolves. It seems they are keeping a lot of the main components that caused us to all fall in love with the books out of the movies. If they are going for the academy award of "how do you piss off the fans" they have the market cornered. But that is just me venting.
You know, I could deal with that. And then in Eclicpse we could see Bella's conflict and Edward finally giving in and letting her.

As long as the proposal is the eventual compromise so we can see everything that happens during her sleepover and in the tent with Jacob, then I'm okay with that. But...now that I think about it... if they're trying to keep this as G-rated as possible (blech!) will they show Bella say she'll marry Edward if he puts out???

Ugh, I'm tired of trying to figure out what M.R. is going to do b/c her way is never MY way!!! ;)
Your right but what they fail to realize is that the teens they are trying to keep the movies pg13 rated for have already read everything that are written in the books so how is the proposal scene, the bed scene or the violence in Eclipse going to be a problem. This according to the screen writer who is hell bent on toning down the violence in Eclipse because according to her we don't need to see it. But i totally agree with you on the fact that their way is never our ( the die hard twilight fans ) way.
I too am hoping that they keep the scene where Bella punches Jacob in the face (that is my favorite part in the book) seeing how this part in particular is the reason that Bella finds out just how much "just friends" is not what Jacob has in mind.
The "violence" debate seems absurd. To me, there isn't a lot of violence in Eclipse, so I don''t understand why they should have a problem being faithful to the book. Mostly, you understand the violence of the newborns through Jasper's stories and the news reports from Seattle. By the time you actually get to the battle, the big showdown is between Edward and Victoria, so what's the problem? What violence there is in the book is critical to Bella understanding what she is really getting into as a vampire. I refuse to believe that they would be so stupid as to miss this critical aspect of Bella's development.
You know, I am so torn. I can live with the proposal not being in NM as long as it is in Eclipse. The proposal has to be at the end of NM or at the beginning of Eclipse for anything else to make sense, so I refuse to believe that they are going to throw it out entirely. I am trying not to worry. I thought MR did a pretty good job with Twilight so I am HOPING that she keeps the spirit of the book in NM and Eclipse. Its honestly the only shred of hope that I have given that crazy change in directors. I'm hoping that this is all a wild publicity stunt just to keep us debating until the movie comes out.
