Totally agree Elise - I left most of my feelings over in "What touched you most" but to recap slightly ... Twilight is not really about vampires or shapeshifters but about true love and as Wesley once said "nothing can stop true love, Buttercup ... not even death"
I am a thousand times grateful to my niece Anna who got me started, actually without even knowing it .. and now, she probably feels like "Enough, Uncle Dave, okay ?!?" for now I'm buying her the movies and forever wanting to "talk" about Twilight. Now, at nearly 18, & a senior in H.S. she certainly has other things to occupy her time ... but I'm stuck in a place where there is no time - only Bella & Edward ... for all eternity ... and yes, loving every minute of it.
Breaking Dawn, Part 1 will be my pinnacle for the Saga : with the marriage, Jake's "reveal" to Charlie, the birth and Rose & Jake's alliance against those who would seek to do harm to Bella, ending her pregnancy - even Edward struggles with how to protect her. The guy is definitely, so much more soulful than many so-called humans.
And as HAL remarked to Dr. Chandra ... Will I dream ? - "I don't know" is definitely, the wrong answer. For without our dreams, who are we, really ?!
I dream for Midnight Sun, for more Cullens, for more Twilight !
No one ever mentioned to me that I should read the Twilight Saga or see the movies. When Twilight came out I was going through a traumatic time in my life so I did not even give it much thought. This past April I was hearing about Eclipse and the big deal people were making so I decided to give them a try. But I wanted to read the books first. I put Twilight and New Moon on my Netflix queue and borrowed Twilight book from the library I had read half the book and was hooked. I went and bought the first 3 books in paperback ( I only buy books in paperback) and the 2 movies that same day borrowed Breaking Dawn from library and read the books in a week (while working full time and being a single mom to a 3 year old). As soon as I finished Breaking Dawn I started all over again reading Twilight.and taking slower to read them in 2 weeks. I am eagerly awaiting Breaking Dawn coming out in paperback in a few weeks and I know I will be reading the Saga over and over again frequently since I don't have to borrow them. I have a bunch of books I am wanting to read but all I can think about is reading the Twilight Saga again. I was half way through New Moon when I watch Twilight and New Moon I have watched them too many times to count now. Saw the midnight show of Eclipse. Have seen it 2 times now and plan on going to see it a couple more while its still in theaters ( and probably going to buy a bootleg copy also until it comes out on DVD legally).
