easy they connect there stuff together lol
uh, wow, very nice respons teresa...hey who's laurell hamilton? i think i'll chek out some of her bookz...ty
um, well, idk how...but i guess it happenz cuz otherwise...no Renesmee um...that iz something to think about tho
this is what stephenie meyer said about this on her website. i hope this helps!.....

The first seed (no pun intended) was planted when I did Bella's computer research in chapter seven of Twilight. Bella reads about several real vampire legends—the Danag, Estrie, Upier, etc. In the novel, I only mentioned a few of the many legends I read through. One that I didn't mention at this point was the entry on the Incubus. The unique feature about that legend was that the incubus could father children. Hmmm, I said, and I filed that kernel of an idea away for later. When I decided to write the first sequel to Twilight (Forever Dawn), I knew it was going to revolve around a hybrid baby from the outset.

When my editor and I decided to go back and really develop Bella's last year of high school, I did so with the knowledge that it was all going to end up with the events in Breaking Dawn. Everything I wrote was pointed in that direction.

I was always very careful when I answered the "Can vampires have babies?" question, because I didn't want to say anything incorrect, but I also didn't want to make the future super-obvious. I focused my answers on the female half of the equation—female vampires cannot have children because their bodies no longer change in any aspect. There is no changing cycle to begin with, and their bodies couldn't expand to fit a growing child, either. I purposely evaded answering the question, "Can a male vampire get a human female pregnant?" to preserve a tiny bit of surprise in the last book. There were many statements on this subject purported to have come from me, but I never made those comments because, obviously, I knew where this was going.

Now, on to the "how is this possible?" question. First of all, of course it's not possible. None of this story is possible. It's a fantasy story about creatures that don't actually exist. Within the context of the fantasy, however, this is how it works:

Vampires are physically similar enough to their human origins to pass as humans under some circumstances (like cloudy days). There are many basic differences. They appear to have skin like ours, albeit very fair skin. The skin serves the same general purpose of protecting the body. However, the cells that make up their skin are not pliant like our cells, they are hard and reflective like crystal. A fluid similar to the venom in their mouths works as a lubricant between the cells, which makes movement possible (note: this fluid is very flammable). A fluid similar to the same venom lubricates their eyes so that their eyes can move easily in their sockets. (However, they don't produce tears because tears exist to protect the eye from damage, and nothing is going to be able to scratch a vampire's eye.) The lubricant-venom in the eyes and skin is not able to infect a human the way saliva-venom can. Similarly, throughout the vampire's body are many versions of venom-based fluids that retain a marked resemblance to the fluid that was replaced, and function in much the same way and toward the same purpose. Though there is no venom replacement that works precisely like blood, many of the functions of blood are carried on in some form. Also, the nervous system runs in a slightly different but heightened way. Some involuntary reactions, like breathing, continue (in that specific example because vampires use the scents in the air much more than we do, rather than out of a need for oxygen). Other involuntary reactions, like blinking, don't exist because there is no purpose for them. The normal reactions of arousal are still present in vampires, made possible by venom-related fluids that cause tissues to react similarly as they do to an influx of blood. Like with vampire skin—which looks similar to human skin and has the same basic function—fluids closely related to seminal fluids still exist in male vampires, which carry genetic information and are capable of bonding with a human ovum. This was not a known fact in the vampire world (outside of Joham's personal experimenting) before Nessie, because it's nearly impossible for a vampire to be that near a human and not kill her.

I didn't get into all of these details at my signings because it's a long, complicated mouthful. Also, it's hard to be clearly heard with all the screaming. Mostly, though, I waited to do this in writing because I have an immature, Homer Simpson-like tendency to giggle when I say the words "seminal fluids" in public.
First of all I saw the post and have to laugh, really?!?!?!?

I guess I never thought about it while reading the book, but I did think it was odd that it would be an issue. I do remember laughing when, Edward went into shock, which then obscured my view and continue to read the rest of the book.

I don't know...Now I'm curious...Thanks!
Okay so I thought this discussion was posted to be humorous, but I think you've answered the question. It's not sperm, it's venom in another form. The only thing a vampire could generate is venom, maybe it's the form of the venom that congers a child.

Granted the story is Fiction therefore not real, but consider his frenzy during (with the pillows) were else could the exertion go?

I don't think they create body waste, so they don't have to get rid of it.

But I've wondered about the impregnation thing, too. AH-HA! Just got it. Remember, that the reason female vampiers can't have babies is that the body needs to change to accomodate the growth of te fetus.

Well, if the body has to change and GROW, then a male vampire couldn't get an erection, no? Or he always has an erection? I've looked at the male vampires zones and there ain't no hardiication in the zonal region.

I still don't see how the seminal fluid and sperm get created, with the limitations of their bodies in that regard.

Another question----if vampires can transmit their "venom" to a human, is it held and dispersed like a viper does it? Because vampires don't have blood per se in their veins. So if they can transmit venom that way, can they also transmit any diseases they have?

Because if a vampire drinks a human's blood and the human has hepatitis or whatever, would the vampire get it? Or would they be a vector (not getting it themselves, but transmitting it to others)?

Many, many questions....
that is a stupid question Bella is human and if you read the books in twilight Edward says he may not be human he is still man
hmmm, I was actually wondering about if when, you know....Edward came, lol, wouldn't the force of it have damaged some of her internal organs, lol....omg
i don't want to over-analyze this pregnancy thing though...just concentrate on the romantic part.
I actually thought they mentioned it in the 4th book?

The girls who are vampires can no longer change, and when we get older we change, and when we have our monthly gifts we change. So if we don't get that wonderful gift we can't have a child, and so women vampires can't have a child.
The guys who are vampires also can't change, but as I learned in school, guys will always produce sperm. Thus they still can as vampires.

So in a way it is only possible for a human and a vampire to reproduce (unless you count "changing" someone).

That makes sense right?

Yeah. At first I was like "Wtf?" but yeah, it took me awhile.
And also, someone said do vampires pee? Ha! Sorry that is a funny questions. And I think someone answered yes because they have to get wastes out...

OK number 1. wastes come from food... vampires don't eat food. So vampires don't need to pee. Yeah...
It would be possible in the same way that a vampire can have sex. (i.e. It's all part of the magic and glamor of vamps!)
The fact that he has no blood pumping in his body would make it impossible for him to achieve an erection, but we know that it happens in almost all vampire stories, not just Twilight. Vampires are mythic, and their legends must be equally so.
first and most important let me tell you that it is a made up world in which anything that the writer imagen could happen and does happen in and only in the story one more time because it is not real . With that said if you go to the section of Stephanie's page of Q&A she does give the reason as to how ....happy reading
