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.
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 agree. The proposal is integral to the storyline in Eclipse and it's by far the best bargaining chip Edward has, unless they plan to leave that part to the Eclipse movie--who knows. As we all know in Eclipse where Jacob overhears about the proposal and it leads to him manipulating Bella into kissing him later...All of these connections would be pointless if there was no proposal in the right sequence of events...
I absolutely agree. The rings, Jacob's pain overhearing about it, Charlie's reaction...So much is tied to this also ties into his "promise to try" until after they are much is impacted by this. And let's not forget that they need to consider Edward's perspective for proposing--initially he didn't realize that Bella would be against marriage....I just think he wanted to make sure that she wanted to be with him forever and this was a way to solidify it--but this happens at the end of New Moon not the beginning of Eclipse--unless they want to add it at the beginning of that movie....and in that case I may relent and not be so DAMN angry!
yeah I just read some of this and most of the fans there are ticked about it too!
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. 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.
The thing with these books is that they aren't geered toward teens. They need to keep it as close as possible and if it's violent in Eclipse then watering this down only compromises the original intent of the book. Fact is the newborns are violent and volatile--this needs to be seen. I personally want them to keep in the part where Bella punches Jacob in the face and Edward's reaction to it and the bed scene...but then I'm not writing the screen play...b/c if I was I would've put a lot more into Twilight that showed how much they loved each other--like the book does.
