sweetsugarhoneyfics asked:

I'm going to be honest, Stephenie Meyer and her decision to include Renesmee in the ecuation confuses me. I can understand she thinks a happy ending must include a baby, and I can even understand she wished so much to write it that she didn't consider that maybe (probably) Bella didn't care/want a child. But if she wanted Bella to have the whole baby experience, why give her such an adult-like baby? Nessie is barely a baby in the way she behaves, which results in Bella barely having to act as a

mother. Add Rosalie’s help almost as a second mum and the fact that Renesmee grows up at the speed of light. What kind of baby experience is that? Bella gets to do a fraction of the things a mother does, for a fraction of the time. Her pregnancy was awful and lasted just a month. Her baby will soon look like her sister and she’ll stay looking like her sister forever, and 18 year old Bella will have to pretend she has any kind of authority over 18 year old Nessie. I get the child is half-vampire, but if SM really wanted Bella to experience and properly enjoy motherhood, she should have kept Renesmee more baby-ish. Actually, I’d prefer if she looked more like a vampire (pale skin, reddish eyes, maybe no heart-beat, maybe even that useless gift she has) but acted more like a human baby. Or even follow the logic and make her grow up very slowly, since she’s half vampire and vampires don’t age. I don’t mind Renesmee being weird, I mind her being pretty much an adult in the body of a child.


I totally agree with all of this!! Like… it was *so* important to her that Bella gets to be a mom, but then she designs this child to be like this? SM was totally making up the features of the hybrids from scratch and this is what she wanted?

I guess the only way I can explain it to myself is that SM is a mom to three boys who are all close in age and she was probably exhausted all the time caring for them.  So the idea of a baby who already had an adult intelligence and could basically take care of itself but still love you unconditionally like a child does (“Momma, you’re special.” ”We’ll always be together!” “I get to stay with you?”) was really appealing.

But it just freaks me out. A blood-drinking baby with the mind of an adult just does not appeal to me at all. :/

Maybe I’m wrong, but I get the impression from fanfic that people who are big fans of Renesmee kind of … ignore this stuff, or at least downplay it.  She’s usually much more child-like in fanfic than she is in the book, enjoying things like blowing bubbles and playing on the swings and having tea parties that book!Nessie never did.

Meyer’s vampires are beautiful, immortal, impervious to practically everything. They smell good and they don’t have any of those *icky* bodily functions. Some even have superpowers. (Meyer did say she likes superheroes.) But they sparkle.

It appears to me that Renesmee is supposed to be the epitome of the two species. Perfect hair, body, brain, looks and she gets to eat food and not get fat!

In Meyer’s world, she probably even gets to have a litter of babies! (Even though the other hybrids have not procreated. And let’s be real … procreation is a pretty strong instinct and those vampires have VERY strong instincts, according to Meyer. Those hybrids of Joham’s ain’t virgins.)

Here’s a good Renesmee coming of age fic:

A Federation of Cassandras by FoiPur

In which Renesmee runs away.

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

Because Edward and Bella are nervous about Renesmee reaching her physical maturity so young and they can’t handle it, the entire coven/family plans a trip to Europe for a year or so. They’ve kept the imprinting from Nessie.

In the meantime, because they’ve told her all her life how perfect she is, she feels pretty darn bad when she isn’t so Cullen perfect.

After they leave the States and Jacob behind, Nessie misses Jake, begins to feel completely stifled. She may be physically almost fully mature, and she may be a friggin’ genius, but she isn’t emotionally mature.

It was a good read.

nicholasgrayson asked:

Neeeat,oh,can you give me your opinions on benjamim story in the guide?

A

panlight:

I’m not as big of a fan of Benjamin as most people are just because I’m not really that interested in the vampire superpowers.  I’ve never been into the whole superhero/X-Men thing and most of my favorite Twilight characters are the ones without powers.  So the fact that Benjamin can control the elements don’t impress me all that much.  I’m much more interested in characters for their personalities than any sort of flashy magic trick they can do.

All that said, his story is interesting and he’s kind of adorable in the movie. The fact that he was a street magician whose talent manifested in a truly out-there supernatural power is really something. Him going back for Tia is pretty romantic, even if they were really only childhood sweethearts before then. I wonder if he’ll stay with Amun forever or if he will eventually want to take another path?  Having witnessed the dynamic of the Cullens (where Carlisle doesn’t use his ‘kids’ for their powers or keep them hidden from the world), Benjamin might want to try something else. I think he’s a good candidate to try vegetarianism but Amun wouldn’t be too happy about it.

Q

midwinter-sun asked:

Kind of an odd question so I hope I can word it correctly. What would happen if each of the Cullens (and only one of them) was suddenly, inexplicably turned human? Like, if it was Rosalie or if it was Carlisle or if it was Edward or Bella (who would be soooooo pissed) but no one else? How would they and the family react to that person turning?

A

panlight:

You know I see fics sometimes (usually magic baby fics) where one of the women turns human and everyone’s first reaction is “OH NO!!! NOT HUMAN!! HOW HORRIBLE!” and I … don’t think it would be that negative.  Like they’d be worried and confused but they’d also be fascinated and wonder about the possibilities. I mean they were born human, it’s not like it’s a totally foreign, unknowable, mysterious lifestate.

If it were Rosalie I’d like to think they’d be happy for her, although it would be tough on Emmett. He doesn’t have the best control so being with her in a vampire/human relationship would be hard. 

If it were Bella, both Bella and Rosalie would be soooo pissed.  “SHE GETS WHAT I WANTED *AGAIN!*” “HEY I’M MAD ABOUT THIS TOO! I WANTED FOREVER!”

Rosalie would be jealous of just about anyone being turned randomly, miraculously human, but I think she’d handle Esme turning the best. I feel like Rose really loves and respects Esme and would be happiest for her getting to have a chance to have children if she can’t have it herself. And honestly Esme turning human would be the least ~dramatic of an issue because Carlisle could totally handle it, no problem. He spends his days up to his elbows in human blood, not killing his wife would be a piece of cake. The only problem is Esme aging and dying without him, obviously.

I think Edward might think he wants it but now that Bella’s a vampire he wouldn’t, and I think he would miss his power. He relies on it so much he’d be totally lost without it. Alice wouldn’t be happy.  Again, she’s so used to her power and the whole being human thing IS totally foreign to her.

I think Carlisle turning human would be the “weirdest” for a lack of a better word. He’s the oldest, *none* of them have ever known him as a human.  He met Edward, Rosalie and Esme when they were human, but none of them have ever meet/seen human Carlisle. Plus he’s the vampiric creator of half the family. So seeing him walking around with a beating heart and blue eyes would probably freak everyone out the most just because to them, Carlisle has always been a vampire. Jasper would be a close second for similar reasons, being so old and having been so ~vampire for so long.

panlight:

wants a fic where suddenly all vampires turn human again.  all of them. the cullens. the volturi, the amazons. the egyptians.  the denali.  all of them. instantly. at the same time.  with no warning and no choice. 

and then them all trying to adjust to things like … eating.  and going to the bathroom.  and dealing with their own mortality. 

I’d imagine a few of them would kill themselves outright.

Most of them will be sorely disappointed.

Q

nicholasgrayson asked:

Hei,i say you comment in a pot answering a question that i made about twilight. i wanted to show you a point that i dont think most people see.,the thing about Bella hating Forks, to me at least is that it only proves how good a person she is. Because hating The town or not,She stll chose to live there,as much as she hated the place,she still wanted her mom to be happy more than she wanted herself to be in a place she liked,i'm sorry,how is that not extremely selfless?

A

 Hey Hon!

I agree with you, that Bella moving to Forks to give her mother time with the new husband was a selfless thing to do. Later, sneaking away from Alice and Jasper in Phoenix to give herself up to James to save her mother was also a selfless thing to do. Stupid, but selfless.

But Edward didn’t know that when he initially saw Bella in the cafeteria. Or when she first spotted Edward and his siblings.

Her thoughts were no different than any of the other “children” in the room.

“I stared because their faces, so different, so similar, were all devastatingly, inhumanly beautiful. There were faces you never expected to see except perhaps on the airbrushed pages of a fashion magazine. Or painted by an old master as the face of an angel. It was hard to decide who was the most beautiful—maybe the perfect blonde girl, or the bronze-haired boy.”

(Bella’s thoughts on first seeing the Cullens, Twilight, page 19.)

In Midnight Sun, Edward’s thoughts are, “When it came to the human mind, I’d heard it all before and then some. Today, all thoughts were consumed with the trivial drama of a new addition to the small student body here … I’d seen the new face repeated in thought after thought from every angle. Just an ordinary human girl.”

Of the humans sitting with Bella, he refers to their thoughts as inane and petty because they, too, are thinking of how pretty the Cullens are, they’re jealous of Bella because folks are paying attention to her, and who does Bella think she is?

He’s intrigued merely because he can’t hear what she is thinking. He first assumes there is something wrong with him because he can’t.

At that time, had he been able to hear the thoughts passing through her head, he’d have only heard about how pretty she thought he was.

She’s never seen them before and she’s checking them out. Struck by their extreme beauty. No different than any other human.

Except Angela who is thinking about school work at the very moment Edward listens into her. Were Edward to follow Angela around and listen to every little thought that passed through her head, he’d be just as judgy about her as he is about everyone else.

The only thing that saves Bella in the biology class is Edward doesn’t want to disappoint Carlisle and he doesn’t want to give into his “monster.” He doesn’t care about her, or the other kids in the class, personally. His concern is more abstract in that it would be wrong to kill all those kids. And darn it, he might give his family away and they’d have to move!

He doesn’t find out until more than a week later—after he’s come back from Alaska—that Bella moved to Forks to give her mother *space*. He only knows that because he asked her directly. He doesn’t hear all the whining and griping about it.

This continues throughout the books.

Edward attributes darn near saint-like qualities to Bella because he can’t hear the “inane and petty” (and very teenagery and very human) thoughts that she has.

I’m not saying she’s a bad person. Perhaps nicer and more sheltered than some others. She’s just not quite as extraordinarily good, pure, and angelic as Edward makes her out to be. And he only thinks that because he can’t hear her mind.

(Unlike a lot of folks, I like the Bella character.)

And, I mean, lots of us do things we don’t especially want to do to benefit others in some way.
