Breaking Dawn: A Bella we love to hate or hate that we love her?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Danette (DMK) Nov 25, 2013. 13 Replies

I read in Fanpire, a book that attempts to de-mystify the Twilight phenomenon, that most fans of TTS do not like BD simply because Bella isn't really the Bella that most of us have come to know (and…Continue

Profile Information

Five Things Everyone Should Know About You?
1: I want to fall in love so hard that that moment has its own theme music.

2 I'm a lot of fun & have a great sense of humor but I am also a big time intellectual. I think too much.

3. I am a homebody. I love to curl up & read.

4. I live far too much in the past. This is not a good thing.

5.. My son is my life. He's 11 but acts like he is a 16 y.o. Emo Kid. I love him to death. Wait..does that make me Emo too, y'know...loving him to death?

6. Just one more FYI:
I love coming here on this site, making new friends, reading & answering the topic posts/discussions. I want you to know that if you write to me or need a response from me and you don't hear from me right away or thereabouts it's coz I literally cannot get out of bed or cannot type or have the energy to write back at that moment. This is because my body is disease ridden. And no...it's not because of my age, I've been sick for quite some time..anyway I'm letting you know coz I think it matters. These diseases are:
Fibromyalgia
Chronic Fatigue
Chronic Pain
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Sjogren's Syndrome (a genetic auto-immune disease)
and Hepatitis C+ (from a dirty tattoo needle in 1994 when it was illegal to have tattoo shops...so I had a friend do mine..big mistake )
When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
Just started reading Twilight on or about Jan 1, 2010.
It is now March 9th, 2010 and I am 3 chapters shy of reading Eclipse.
I have only read each book one time so far. I expect to re-read them all again several times after I finish the last book of the series (d'oh! can't think of the title right now!) Breaking dawn!
Sept 2010: Okay read everything but NM twice by now. Everyone likes Eclipse the least but it's my favorite. I'm not into Jacob and the wolfpack so NM isn't very appealing to me...maybe I'll give it another chance...
SSLoBT The day it was released on the internet. 2 days to read.
*May 31, 2010 FINISHED all 4 back in late March/Mid April
UPDATE MAY 2012: Re-read Twilight a few days ago. I counted how many times SMeyer used the word "smile". *cringing* Somewhere between pages 250-300 the word smile is used 160-something times! Does SMeyer know what a thesaurus is?!!!
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
Team Edward.
Elegance, grace, respect, immortality (okay I am vain) but also because he is able to love for love's sake, willing to be with his love no matter if she stays mortal and ages. That's devotion! The idea that I could stay with my true love for-ev-r. Also Team Edward by default (I'm down with Vampires).
I dislike Jacob in the extreme. I don't like dogs..Jacob reminds me of one especially when he really digs his paws into Bella and tries to convince her of certain things (I don't want to SPOIL anything for those who haven't read the Series)
Which Character Are You Most Like?
I hate to admit it but I'd have to go with Renee. *aarrgghh!!*
Favorite Books
Stephen King books ( The Stand, etc), Harry Potter Series, J K Rowling, (OotP and DH) Philip K. D*** books (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep aka Blade Runner), Apocalypse Culture edited by Adam Parfrey, Low Life by Luc Sante, Hollywood Babylon by Kenneth Anger, Almost all works by Anais Nin, Charles Bukowski (like his novels better than poetry), Brave New World, by Huxley, Philippa Gregory Books (The Other Sister, etc), A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Thank You for Smoking Christopher Buckley, La Divina Commedia by Dante Alighieri (although I must admit The Inferno is the best part), The Clown by Heinrich Boll, The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger, Tennessee Williams plays (A Streetcar Named Desire), Edward Albee plays, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt, Christiane F (an autobiography), just started reading Terry Pratchett,
What is Your Favorite Music
all types really:
Lady Gaga is a crazy genius. I worship her.
Classical
Relaxation
Dance (Madonna)
World Beat
Metal

Anything really as long as it appeals to me. I don't discriminate or judge b/c of the music you listen to.
Favorite Movies, TV Shows, Games:
Too many movies to go into now..top of my head
Clockwork Orange Stanley Kubrick
The Shining Stanley Kubrick
12 Monkeys Terry Gilliam
Last Temptation of Christ Martin Scorcese
The Tenant Roman Polanski

=)

I just had to do this. PLUEEZE watch/ listen to the whole video/song. It's hilarious. Oh & Jacob lovers, this one is for you...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOT HAPPY WITH THIS RESULT BUT I ANSWERED HONESTLY... Take a chance...

You're a RosalieYou're a Rosalie

You are straightforward, tenacious, and beautiful, but unfortunately aware of it. You are attention loving, and people easily flock to you, but deep down you are mistrustful of people in general. You can be judgmental and thoughtless, but you love deeply and are extremely protective of those that you hold dear. Find out which female character you are!
