Meat of the Discussion – Bella’s Super Power and Usefulness of super powers in general

  • Chris of Las Vegas, Nevada, writes:

I think Bella is a shield because she constantly cares for others and gladly sacrifies herself for her mother [twilight], and edward [eclipse].  Then why are her powers essentially for self-preservation?

  • Discussion of Bella as shield
  • Is it part of her personality?
  • How does her being a mother affect her shield making abilities?
  • The usefulness of super powers in general in Breaking Dawn
  • Need for an encyclopedic listing of other vampires and super powers in BD (See Lion_Lamb Community’s post on Live Journal)

    I guess we didn’t think about who Bella would be drawn to at the Oscars…probably no one because Hollywood stars are generally not boring, whiny, obnoxious, and lame. Oh! She would be drawn to KStew! Ha! Take that, Miss “Hundreds of Girls Screaming”!
