* I don't get why Royce King ended up killing Rosalie. He clearly sees her as an object, but an object with a specific purpose. He likes having her on his arm as a pretty toy, and to gain envy from other men. He wanted to marry her presumably so she could be a pretty toy to him long term. When she dies she can no longer fulfill that 'function'. In particular, in joining in with gang raping her, he's 'sharing' her with other men, and they can no longer envy him. Was he just that drunk enough to stop thinking rationally, or is he simply an idiot who doesn't know his own best interest?

** Blog/DasSporking suspects that Rosalie was supposed to be from RegencyEngland and transplanted to Depression-era USA so she could meet Ed and Carl.



** I also tough it was kind of ''funny'' that Jacob originally talks about imprinting with disgust and disdain but then, when it comes time for him to imprint on Bella and Edwards perfect, wondrous, miracle baby he's not only totally ok with it, but completely willing and enthusiastic. I guess, since Renesmee inherited MarySue genes from both parents, Jacob had no choice but to love her, the internal logic of the story would not have allowed it to be otherwise.

** To add onto that answer, all vampires were once humans, most of which whom had probably felt sexual desire at some point, as they're at least adolescent (vampire children are strictly forbidden as they can't control their bloodthirst). Those feelings to subside when they change, while their other senses such as hearing and sight strengthens, would be nonsensical. If anything, the desire would be stronger, and there isn't really a reason to refrain, because as the above poster stated, there is more to sex than just procreation.

** Because sex isn't exclusively about procreation. It's also used to bond partners with each other. Vampires still have emotions, romantic feelings toward their lovers. Whether they actually can have children is irrelevant. You might as well ask why infertile people still have sex; it's fun, it feels good and it makes you feel closer to your partner. If they were all as cold and emotionless as Bella, you might've had a point, but we've seen that that just isn't true.

*** Actually, they could. Even if we discount the simple 'restrain human with super strength, knock out with sedatives' method, several vampires have powers that are extremely conducive to nonfatal takedown. Zafrina, for example, can wreak havoc with a rebelling army's ability to fight with her illusions, Chelsea and her bond-making-and-breaking power can make the humans emotionally dependent on the vampires and distrustful of each other, Jane's pain-causing power doesn't leave a physical mark on whoever she chooses to hurt, Alec can deprive them of their senses, and Jasper can manipulate their emotions so that they're too complacent to fight.

* Why would vampires need to be beautiful ''at all''? They're immortal, invulnerable, faster, stronger, and have better senses than and special powers. They're also often active in darkness. Vampires wouldn't need to be beautiful in order to catch prey or to reproduce, as an ugly vampire could certainly use that plethora of special powers to kill or turn humans just as well as the beautiful vampires, although he'd need a different prey-catching strategy than the Volturi's "[[DistractedByTheSexy send a leggy female vamp to lure tourists into the Evil Lair of Doom]]". So why did vampires evolve beauty? They don't need it!

\n*** However, there's a lot more to getting a blood transfusion than having a matching blood type. They still need to screen both Bella's blood and the donor blood to make sure that they don't transfuse her with a unit that might react with alloantibodies in her own blood. The tests for alloantibodies are typically only valid for about five days and then you need to re-test. Granted, in real-life hospitals simply give 0 neg blood regardless of alloantibodies in an emergency situation but it's risky and there is absolutely no need for that with Bella. They have all the time in the world to test her blood (they know roughly when she is due and if nothing else they can re-test her blood as needed) and give her the best possible match rather than taking the risk. In addition, if Bella is any other blood type than 0 neg she will be much better off getting her own blood type. In other words, there's no logical reason why they wouldn't bother running a very simple test and instead just stock up on whatever inconveniences them the least.

* So Bella gets stiff-arm pushed by Edward into some glass and cuts damages her brachial nerve, and Carlisle sews her up and gives her morphine from his kitchen...WHAT?!?! One: Carlile apparently has a full surgical kit and all the tools necessary to remove broken glass from a gaping wound, repair slashed arteries, sew up the wound and disinfect and wrap it. And all these tools, coming out of an old-fashioned doctor's bag, are completely sterile? This is complex surgery and would require a team of doctors and nurses working together in ER conditions HOURS to complete. Two: This is illegal. Even if we grant that he's walking around with thousands of dollars of high end surgical equipment, he can't take drugs out of the hospital. Morphine and pharmaceutical painkillers and sedatives are tightly and strictly monitored to prevent doctors from dipping into their own supplies or starting up a side business as drug dealers. If anyone ever found out he was doing this, he would be blacklisted and never allowed to practice medicine again, not to mention a sudden problem with the DEA. Three: There is no mention of him wearing gloves. Four: Bella looks at Carlisle's face to avoid looking at her gushing wound...but Carlilse's face would have to be inches from her wound while he digs around to get the broken glass out, wouldn't it?

** Not to mention that he uses the antiseptic ''after'' closing the wound. That's like setting your home on fire and then putting up a smoke detector.
** Why does he have that kit in the first place? Do vampires often get wounds that require such equipment?

** Considering the fact that large areas of hospitals are indoors without windows (for instance operating rooms) it seems like he could at least attempt to find a way to show up at work even on sunny days. Either way, a doctor avoiding standing in direct sunlight ought to be a lot less odd than a doctor who never works on sunny days.
