oh my!!! I came into the living room to watch The Walking Dead but my dad was already there, and to my surprise he was watching a Twilight saga marathon
Bella: “Edward, I’m scared…”
Edward: “You should be.”
INT. TENEMENT APARTMENT - RIO DE JANEIRO - DAY
A dump, empty but for a table and chair. On the table lie THE PHOTOS that once lined Bella’s walls. Edward stands in the center of the room, stock still, staring out at the rising sun. His face is as empty and desolate as Bella’s was after he left.
A CELL PHONE on the table RINGS jarringly. He doesn’t move. It continues. Finally, he whips the receiver to his ear, exasperated.
Wow, Edward finally answered the phone. I feel so honored…
INT. TANYA’S ALASKAN HOME - DAY
Rosalie, on the phone, stands at the picture window —
ROSALIE’S POV - EXT. ALASKAN HOUSE - Emmett, Jasper, Carlisle and Esme walk away from the house, over the snow to the treeline, on their way to hunt. None wear coats.
I’m hanging up now…
Rosalie turns away from the window.
Wait!… You should come home.
Esme’s a wreck, Carlisle never smiles. Even Emmett’s depressed. You’ve
really done a number on them.
I’m sorry. I am. But they wouldn’t be happier with me around. Trust me.
I… I just miss… us. The family.
I know. But the further away I am, the safer Bella will be. She deserves a shot at a normal life —
But see, you don’t have to worry about that, not anymore —
She stops realizing she may be making a mistake. But Edward caught it, sits up.
Why, Rose? Did something happen?
I - uh —
Tell me, Rosalie.
Tell me! —
— Alice had a vision. She saw Bella — threw herself off a cliff… She’s dead, Edward.
Edward reels, uncomprehending.
I… don’t believe it.
Alice is there now. Thought she could help with the funeral or something.
STAY ON ROSALIE as —
Come home, Edward. It’s time…
She’s been disconnected. Off Rosalie, worried…
Again: how is this Rosalie’s fault? All she was doing was telling Edward what she honestly believed was the truth. SHE wasn’t the one who had a vision and jumped to conclusions, SHE wasn’t the one who ran off to Volterra to die in the most dramatic way possible. She didn’t tell him to get him to kill himself, she told him because she missed him and wanted him to come home! She was being honest with her brother and yet everyone blames HER? What was the alternative? Did they really plan on NEVER telling Edward, the mind-reader, that Bella had died? If Rosalie had LIED about it to get Edward home, that would be one thing, but she believed she was being honest with him when no one else would. How is that bad?
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof
thou shalt surely die.
Genesis 2:17 (Twilight)
These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume.
Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene VI (New Moon)
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Robert Frost (Eclipse)
You’ll have to forgive me for thinking that, with quotes like these to set the tone, Twilight would have at best a bittersweet ending.
The Cullens: Twilight - Breaking Dawn pt 1
Something about how tall and lanky he looks and this coat always makes me think of Nosferatu. And I say that in a good way, a ‘he looks like a vampire’ way. Much prettier than Nosferatu, of course, but there’s a certain similar stiffness to the pose and the clothing:
Laurent the Pimpire. Rest in pieces, Laurent. If it’s any consolation, in Forever Dawn you apparently went vegetarian and got to unlive happily ever after with Irina as a good guy.
