Edward did try to stop the wedding because he felt somewhat guilty and Bella refused.Originally Posted by Pandora Box;3424574;
Hmmm....I interpreted their first time together very differently. I do not remember reading that Bella "passed out" (other than fatigue). What would she have passed out from? She didn't drink or do drugs. My understanding was that they made passionate love together and Edward in his enthusiasm bruised her. She didn't feel anything at the time because she also was enthusiastic and enjoying herself. Remember she wakes up feeling "blissed out". Also, she was VERY upset with Edward for killing her buzz. I don't get a victim mentality from that all.
One very interesting thing I've read was the "Midnight Sun" draft on SM's website. Gives Edward's perspective and makes him much more, well, human
I too, love discussing books, movies, just about anything really! in infinite detail!
My particular gripe with BD (and I did like it for the most part) was Bella's abandonment of Renee. No contact with the woman who raised you for 17 years? especially after you become a mother yourself? Not good. I have a few interesting scenarios in my head as to how it could all work out for the family...
