A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

Breaking Dawn Spoiler from Stephenie Meyer

I know you have all probably read it already, or are still covering your ears because you don’t want to hear anything spoilerish, but Stephenie just released a Big Breaking Dawn Spoiler to Entertainment Weekly. You can read all about it over here.

I want to know what you think of this. As we all know, it is best to look at this spoiler with suspicious eyes: after all, it was also revealed that the Grand Event happens at the beginning of the book, and that obviously means that there are a whole lot of pages ahead for things to happen.

Because of the tight comment moderation I have on the site for anti-BD-spoilers from renegade book-pirates, some of your theories as to what this means might be held, but I will approve them quickly except during the hours I am asleep 😀 . Are you happy that this is the way it will turn out? Or do you suspect that something dire will come of this, or that there is a deeper, more hidden meaning?

Don’t worry about spoiling me with your theories because I’ll hear them anyway soon, and also no one knows what’s in Breaking Dawn yet, so I don’t know which is right or wrong, same as everyone else.

NOTE: Apologies for a short post, I’m insanely busy on my novel revisions before my deadline. But, I’ve been trying Twitter for the first time…

Also, so you know, I have decided to start the chat. I will have more info on this soon, but I will probably launch it on August 3 or 4, as I’m sure no one would be there on August 2 anyway due to More Important Matters at hand 😀

  1. Okay, first let me say that I, uh, like your pic, Kaleb.

    I didn’t even notice it at first. I was just reading the article, and then my sis pops over my shoulder and is all, “Who’s that creepy guy behind the couch?” Haha you scared me half to death.

    But, my god I think this post may be extremely long. I have so much I’ve been keeping bottled up with all the chat rooms down =) Kaleb, if your reading this, uh, well, some major spoilers =)

    I agree with many people that the ‘wedding’ may not end up in a ‘marriage’. I have a feeling something will happen during the ceremony. I don’t exactly think that Jake will get into it, but I do think that something will happen during the ceremony that will make Jake come back into play.

    I also thought a lot about the quote with Sam. ‘This isn’t something the treaty anticipated’. I have a sneaking suspicion that a werewolf will be bitten by a vampire, for some strange reason. I have a feeling this might happen because, not only would that be an extreme danger to everyone in the area, but also, Stephenie refused to answer the question in a Q&A session, stating that she can’t reveal anything (when the question what would happen if a vampire bit a werewolf was asked). Now, I could easily be jumping to conclusions, but I have a real feeling this is a possibility. Im not sure who the werewolf will be… Not only that, but the treaty wouldn’t even be broken if a werewolf was bitten. Because, technically, werewolves aren’t completely human… Hence the ‘not something our treaty anticipated.’

    Somehow I don’t think that Sam’s quote is talking about bella as a new vamp… Maybe the Volturi, or Bella having some immensly strange power that could be the cause of the danger…

    I think that Stephenie’s spoiler was more of a spoiler than we realized =] And, she said it was the only thing she was comphortable with revealing. For those of you who were dissapointed with the alleged ‘spoiler’ You can’t expect her to reveal some intensly major part of the plot, because that just wouldn’t be like her. But like I said, I’m pretty sure Stephenie wouldn’t have revealed it if it wasn’t *somewhat* significant to the plot (which it is, Im sure).

    Im kind of ranting now. This post has gotten extremely long, and Im starting to run off to different directions following my train of thought. I dont even know if certain parts of this will make sense =P

    Anyways, can’t wait for BD
    <3 Samantha

  2. I thougt the spoiler was going to be something much better. The spoiler does make me happy (i.e. I am a HUGE Edward fan) but I kind of knew it was coming. They had even picked a date. Although it is good to know that the wedding will come early in the book because then I know it wont end with the wedding. That would have been a huge dissapointment because it is just so unoriginal. A lot of books end with a weddingso it is good to know that she is still going to be unique.

  3. more of the same from me. Of course im totaly disapointed because i love jake. GO TEAM WEARWOLF. but i never doubted bella and edward would be together… can hardly wait 3 days 18 minutes!!!

  4. Everyone’s theories seem possible. I think anything can happen. I don’t really care if Bella gets turned but it would be cool if she did. All I want is a happy ending (meaning Bella and Eward together).

  5. Alot of people are saying that since this wedding is in the beginning then that leaves another seven hundred and something odd pages for things to go all wrong…but I am going to be optimistic here and say that leaves the whole rest of the book for things to go RIGHT too, you know what I mean! Come on, you know you are wanting a fantastic love scene for our two vamptastic star crossed lovers! IF SM would actually write it, I mean, it would not be premarital anymore!!!
    Woot its getting hot in here. lol.
    And here is another theory of mine…. when chaos ensues between the Volturi and Cullen Clan I think it would be possible for the Cullens to take their place as the new Vampy Peacekeepers upon defeat. I know there will be a huge battle… but then maybe Edward and Bella would be like, well, royalty? MAybe its far-fetched but it seems possible.
    EEEEk cant wait!!!!

  6. Dude, your photo shop work rocks! Really, thanks for making me laugh! It took me reading the other comments to even realize you ‘fixed’ SM’s picture. So great!
    As far as the spoilers go I will agree with those who say, ‘hmm, not so much a spoiler.” but in my ‘always looking for double meaning’ mind all SM says is wedding and not marriage. She wrote the wedding scene but she didn’t say marriage. So maybe something or someone will come busting through at the last moment and stop the nuptials. Just a thought, though I am sure I am way off base:)

  7. hey hey
    first time commenting here … just thought i should let you know that the chat should probably be the 4th,… the 5th even since some of us are only getting the book on the 4th!!!
    thought you should know since you have fan over-seas also!!!

  8. The wedding might be a dream wedding, but something could go wrong. Remember, they are vampires. At the same time, a dream wedding for Bella would mean an appearance from Jacob, which could happen. If the wedding happens too early though, I don’t expect Jake will appear.

  9. I am happy about the wedding, but my main desire is to see Edward BITE HER…
    I agree, the wedding is in the beggining of the book, a lot is going to happen between than and the end.
    I think Steph- giving us this spoiler and her QUOTES OF THE DAY is so fun and interesting.

  10. Okay I’ve actually gotten to tell a couple gals at work, I have a quote she makes saved in my phone so I could read it to them. We all made noises that only girls really make, though we’re all over 20 years old. This is seriously becoming one of the longest weeks of my life, I can’t wait to see what happens to Bella and Edward, and

  11. Oh and someone else already said this but your Photoshop was really funny, I love it.

  12. i’d like to add .. that Lulu totally just took that idea from my head hahaha
    the cullen’s becoming the new royal family after the ultimate battle b/w them and the volturi that is…. it would be so awesome no??
    though with a huge battle there would have to be casualties!!! :S

  13. First time commenting! So, that picture was hilarious; I couldn’t stop laughing. It makes me think of Where’s Waldo.
    I felt so relieved when I read the spoiler. I mean I was pretty sure it was going to happen, but there was that little doubt monster in my head telling me that somehow Edward and Bella wouldn’t end up together. For me, that would be the biggest nightmare ending to the books. Oh, it would also really suck if she didn’t get turned.
    I’m not sure what the big conflict is going to be. I try not to ruin it for myself by speculating too much. I think it could be something tear-worthy though.

  14. to 94#, Alice,
    I didn’t say Jane’s power was to kill with a thought. I was wondering what Alec’s power could be. Since it’s more powerful than Jane’s one, in my opinion it must have to do with killing. Since vampires can only be killed spliting parts of the body and burning them, I was wondering if Alec’s power could be finding an EASIER way to kill vampires. Which leads us to… that’s right. Turning them humans.

    As for the other part, yes Alec is with the bad guys, but in my head he would ‘des-vamp’ Edward to KILL him. Humans are easier to kill. He wouldn’t have his min-reading power, super-strenght, super-speed, and granite skin. Eventually, Edward would find a way to escape, and someone else would finish the Volturi. This is where my happy ending enters.

    This is just a theory! I don’t KNOW what’s going to happen. But I just don’t see Stephenie ‘killing’ her Bella, as in destroying her soul. That is where my theory came from. A way for Edward and Bella end up together, WITHOUT turning her.

    (Sorry for the looooong comment!)

  15. wow…um turning Edward into a human is a long shot…b/c wouldn’t he know Alec’s power b/c in New Moon he said he was picking everyone’s minds for something to save them…he would have know that Alec could “de-vamp” him…plus he already told Bella that if there was anyway for him to be human for her he would….but I think that becoming a vampire is irreversible…you see how Edward stresses this fact to Bella in hope that she’ll reconsider. And for everyone who’s saying that the spoiler wasn’t much of a spoiler…I think it kinda was…we’ve all read her books and we’ve all seen how something ends up going wrong…So as fans of Twilight and Stephenie Meyer we can’t just assume that they will follow through with marriage just because they’ve made the arrangements to get married…remember that ANYTHING THAT CAN GO WRONG WILL…otherwise it wouldn’t be part of the Saga that we know, love, and practically worship :)…you saw what happened in Eclipse with Jacob…who really knows how indecisive Bella will be in Breaking Dawn??? So the fact that she will follow through and get married is in fact, in my opinion, a spoiler as well as a huge relief!

  16. mmm wasn’t really a spoiler i already kew it was gonna happen…though ikind of really hope jacob shows in the wedding jeje…it’d be so much fun 😀
    i kind of feel sorry for him…and he’s really nice 😉
    loved your picture kalib 😀

    ps: i wish there was a way to make both jacob and edward happy…

  17. Okay, so this is pathetic.
    I have anticipation rising from my stomach up to my throat and I am about to choke on it. I am almost to the point of nausea. Sad, really. Or else what is even more mad is that after I have read BD I will go crazy until I see the movie…then there will be more psycho-ness over Midnight Sun! It will never end? I mean, how could Stephenie just cut us off like that? LOL
    Arg. It better have an awesome ending with a buttload of closure!

  18. i luv regina spektor!!!
    always great to see another fan!
    by the way……what r u doing behind stephanie’s couch …?
    i’m sure there’s some explanation to that…

  19. Not too much of a spoiler for me, partly because we all know how stubborn Bella is. New Moon is proof of how she truly cannot go back on a decision she has thought through and made and her marraige is no different. I was just excited to see that it wouldn’t be put off until the end so that we can focus on the rest of the story, again proving what an amazing story teller Stephenie Meyer truly is.

  20. Although I assumed Edward and Bella would get married, I didn’t know if it would really happen… Stephenie likes to make us think we know what is going to happen and then things change.

    Romeo and Juliet were married too, that didn’t mean they were happy at the end of their story.

    I’m so excited!!! 2 days and I will be in line for the book!

  21. Kaleb, I’m very happy this wedding is taking place in the beginning. That leaves lots of other events left to fill the remaining pages. All though we all suspected the wedding itself would happen…there are just far too many important things to follow. Ie: Bella’a possible change to a Vamp. Charlie’s suspicion of the entire wolves and vamps in the area.. wedding night, volturi… man I am not looking forward to any ending of this series. So, I am happy with this little spoiler.

  22. I agree fully, about how good it is that the wedding is int he beggining. It gives WAY more time for the other events to fold out and from the ‘quote of the day’ at stephenie meyers website, its not goingt o be all that good. But, knwoing Stephenie, its all going to turn out ok at the end of the book, just like in all the others.

  23. I kinda figured it would happen, even though my sister kept being negative and telling me she wouldn’t show up or Jacob was gonna crash the wedding. It’s early in the book so something horrible is bound to happen…

  24. Im glad about the spoiler, but i agree with most of the people above about how it was pretty well known that they were going to get married, but its nice for a comformation. The theries about SM pulling a JKR are interesting, both with the reception idea and her saying that she simply wrote the sceane, and i can understand compleatly where you’re coming from, but not sure if i belive in them myself. It would be really interesting if jacob were to show up, either at the wedding or at a latter time, and would cause some exciting drama. I think that along with bella becoming a vampire will turn out to be the big conflicts in the book.

  25. I was really relieved! At least now it has been confirmed that they do get married! ::sigh of relief:: I don’t care if Jacob comes back into the picture… I can live if Bella doesn’t get changed… but they HAD to stay together! And now I know they do (beginning of book or not!) so I am happy! 🙂 Bring on Aug. 2nd!

  26. Arg, guys, Stephenie’s BD quotes are driving me nuts. Only 3 more days, though!!!!

  27. Kaleb, what are you doing? Stalking Stephenie? Yeah, I saw you behind her chair, looking over. xD, thats some good photoshop. And dont worry, the spoiler wasnt THAT big. It was kind of a dissapointment. A spoiler wouldve been like JKR telling us that the big battle happens at Hogwarts, not the battle happens at the end. lol

  28. I don’t know if I want to read the spoiler or not…i’m still debating! I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! (I didn’t read any other comments because I didn’t want to find out what the spoiler was in case I decide against knowing) But i’m like SO excited for this friday i’m like freaking out because it’s going to be here so soon!

  29. Even though the spoiler wasn’t a huge surprise it was a little bit of a relief to know we’ll get a wedding and early in the book. This leaves the rest of the book wide open for conflict and adventure. I think there will be conflict with the werewolves and with the Volturi! Heck, it could turn into all out war! -gasp- I hope Bella will be sturdier and able to help if that is the case!

    btw – Kaleb you look like a stalker in that picture. LoL 😉

  30. Im so excited for breaking dawn. She better choose edward. Im scared that jacob will mess up the wedding though. And wow the movie does not give edward justice in my eyes. I thought he would look way hotter.

  31. The whole wedding thing wasn’t a shocker but if you saw that Jacob has a quote in BD that one sure is especially if he uses the word kill!

  32. Hihi-I tottally agree with you! OMG, he better not be saying that about Bella! that quote was more exciting then the spoiler, i must say.
    1 DAY,6 HRS,13 MIN!

  33. I have an urgent question and the lex have the comments turned off so Im mad. Is the seating General admission in NYC or is it assigned seating I have no Idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Yea I knew it would happen too, but im sooo nervous that its at the beginning. I feel bad for Jacob, but i wouldn,t be able to stand it if she didn’t wind up with edward.

  35. Ok, so we all know she marries Edward, but how the heck is SM going to avoid the ‘sex’ scene that generally follows a wedding??? Mind boggling…

  36. Christine, I hear what you’re saying. Only, my personal hope is that she doesn’t ‘avoid’ it, per se. [coughcough]

  37. i’m so nervous! i’m going to go physco! I need Breaking Dawn! ahhhhh! lol kassi! Ha, I love how you put your head behind her chair in the picture Kaleb! It had me cracking up! ha ha! I’m sure that Breaking Dawn is going to be great!

  38. Breaking Dawn is a huge dissapointment. SM DID avoid “The Scene” (You know what I mean). I couldn’t belive it. Honesly, reading this book has ruined the serise for me. The beginning is very rushed. It quickly becomes very boring.

  39. I can’t wait until Breaking Dawn comes out in Australia! I wanna know what happens! lol. The suspense is killing me! I hope that Jacob, Edward, Alice, and Bella don’t get killed…

  40. Lol. I JUST noticed you in the back of th picture Kaleb. Guess I wasn’t that observant when I first looked at it…

  41. Breaking dawn stinks!!! Book is worse book what I ever read!
    I love Twilight, New moon and especially Eclipse, but this book… *shivering*

  42. Okay It’s not that bad, but that book is insane, so weird. I think the best end what I can image is that Bella dies. Great natural end. Edward doesn’t get Bella, Jacob doesn’t get bella. Great!
    P.s. My english not the best in the world.

  43. What I think about Breaking Dawn:

    I loved everything about it! the huge twists kinda freaked me out i admit but seriously. I was literally laughing out loud when Bella woke up from making love to edward coverd in feathers.. HIlarious! And Jacob with the blonde jokes couldn’t get enough of them.

  44. I just have two questions that i have know….. do they have a child and does Bella turn into a vampire?? Please just answer those two questions for me.
    I have already watched Twilight the movie 6 times 😉 Great movie… great book!

  45. yeah. i kinda expected that. 😛 bella gets a kid and edward makes her into a vampire before it’s too late. BD was a BIT WIERD but still cool. i loved twilight the movie before i read the book but when i watched it again after reading the book…i just hated it. rob doesn’t know how to act AT ALL. i agree that he’s hot but they could have gotten a way HOTTER guy. like chase crawford or something. he’s WAY hotter. yeah. but what i love baout BD is that we meet all the other vampires out there. and i love RENESMEE and i was so thrilled that my name was her name!! i’m not kidding. that’s my real name. 🙂 i still love it though… :))

  46. I just cannot get enough of Twilight, I have read twilight, new moon, and eclipse, seen the two movies, can't wait to see Eclipse coming out June 30th, I would very much like Edward and Bella to finally get married, but how is he going to perform on their honeymoon, in eclipse he promised Bella he would try, but I didn't think vampires could do that sort of thing….maybe I'm wrong, after all garlic, and stakes etc, don't work anymore on these vampires, but Stephanie you are so great, I have never had a book that I got so involved in I couldn't put it down until I was done….Keep up the good work.

  48. Love your books! Is there a chance for another book after Breaking Dawn, maybe with their daughter marrying Jacob. I also believe Edward does have a soul. It would be nice to believe he could go to heaven. Just a thought. Thanks for listening. Ev, Lake Sunapee, NH
