    Both options are understandable, but each choice will make for a VERY different movie.
    Which do you prefer, and what type of movie do you think it will be with your preference?
    I have thought about this, and I have my opinion now. My biggest issue with the first movie was that it would be difficult for people who hadn't read the books tor really understand what was going on a lot of the time. A great deal of the complaints I heard about the movie from those who had not read the book would have been solved if they had. So I do think it's important for the audience to know Edward's true intentions. However, it could be done, say, in a conversation with Alice. It can be clear that Bella herself doesn't know.

    Which scenes are you most excited to see in the movies.
    I am actually excited to see when Edward leaves Bella in the forest. It's going to be heart-wrenching, but I just hope they do a good job with it. I also want to see how they're going to portray his voices talking to Bella in the movie. And, the whole cliff diving scene will be fun to see.

    Eclipse... man... so many. I love this book (and it's quickly becoming my fave of the four). The scene when Edward comes home from hunting and Bella wakes up in his bed. Yea... that's going to be awesome. Jacob and Bella kissing is going to be pretty hot too. And the whole climactic fight scene.

    Breaking Dawn - Renesmee. I don't have a clue how they're going to pull it off and I can't wait to see it.


    What are some scenes or line that you think New Moon cannot do without!?
    I don't know. There are so many scenes that can't be left out but are so obvious I don't think they will. Like Edward leaving, Bella being rescued by Sam, her buying the motorcycles and bringing them to Jacob, cliff diving, Alice, Italy, porsche, Volturi, Edward and Bella back at home.

    I actually think they should stay true to the book. I think it would be bad if they clued the audience in. Everything is cleared up at the end of the book, but the reader doesn't realize Edward's intentions for leaving until then. I think movies are better if they make you wonder throughout. Divulging every little thing takes away some of the excitement.

    I don't know if any of you know, but on her website she said she is going to finish Midnight Sun. I took this from her website

    June 2008 Update: In response to the outrageous number of emails that I have received with questions concerning Midnight Sun, I talked to Stephenie this weekend and she asked me to let everyone know that Midnight Sun is her next project. She has not yet finished writing it (and there is no timeline set up, so we all need to put a lot of effort into being patient for a while longer), but she is definitely still planning on having it published. And, after Breaking Dawn comes out, Stephenie will have much more time to focus on writing Midnight Sun.

    Yeah, but then there was another update after that - - Aug. 2008 I think? - - saying that she wasn't. Or at least, that as of right now she was not, and maybe in the future would change her mind, but for now no.

    On the Midnight Sun issue, I totally think she will finish it. It was all to perfect for her not to! I mean seriously... letting everyone read RIGHT up to the meadow scene and then stopping? Come on! I think she will wait til all the movies have been made and then release Midnight Sun, and I think it will be here biggest seller due to the newfound popularity through the movies. I loved what I read of Midnight Sun even more then I liked Twilight. Which is NUTS!
