Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 31

"There was no sound.  No breathing.  Not even mine.
For a moment, the absence of pain was all I could comprehend.
And then I opened my eyes and gazed above me in wonder." ~Bella, chpt 19




to be continued on October 16th, 2012... (Yes, Seriously!)

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 31

"She's going to be dazzling."
Edward growled quietly "She always has been" ~Alice and Edward, chpt 19






"It could have been seconds, weeks or years, but eventually, time came to mean something again.
Three things happened together, grew from each other so that I didn't know which came first: time restarted, the morphine's weight faded, and I got stronger...


I had just enough strength to lie there unmoving while I was charred alive." ~Bella, chpt19



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 31

This is the last day of quotes - and I will post as many as it takes to finish the story ( for part 1.....)  Hope you've been enjoying them as much as I've enjoyed doing them! :) So, without further ado.....

"Jacob - who'd said goodbye to me over and over but kept coming back when I needed him.  Jacob, who'd I'd wounded so many times it was criminal.  Would I hurt him again, in  the worst way yet?  He'd stayed for me, despite everything.  Now all he asked was that I stayed for him." ~ Bella, chpt 19

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 30

"Edward.  Edward.  My life and his were twisted into a single strand.  Cut one and you cut both.  If he were gone, I would not be able to live through that.  If I were gone, he wouldn't live through it either.  And a world without Edward seemed completely pointless.  Edward had to exist." ~ Bella, chpt 19



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 30

"Her tiny face was so absolutely perfect that it stunned me.  She was even more beautiful than her father.  Unbelievable.  Impossible.
"Renesmee," I whispered.  "so... beautiful." ~ Bella, chpt 19



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 30

(OMG Who's going to see the movie tonight!!!  EEEEEEK!)

"Non-reality was black, and it didn't hurt so much.
Reality was red, and it felt like I was being sawed in half, hit by a bus, and submerged in acid, all at the same time." ~ Bella, chpt 19

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 29

"From upstairs, there was a new sound.  The only sound that could touch me in this endless instant.
A frantic pounding, a racing beat...
A changing heart." ~ Jacob, chpt 18


The gravity of the Earth no longer tied me to the place where I stood.
It was the baby girl in the blonde vampire's arms that held me here now.
RENESMEE. ~Jacob, chpt 18






"The murderer stared past Rosalie's shoulder at me, it's gaze more focused than any newborn creature's gaze should be.
Warm brown eyes, the color  of milk chocolate - the exact same color that Bella's had been.
My shaking jerked to a stop; heat flooded through me, stronger than before, but it was a new kind of heat - not a burning.
It was glowing.
Everything inside me came undone as I stared at the tiny porcelain face of the half-vampire, half-human baby." ~ Jacob, chpt 18

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 28

"You stay with me now, Bella!" I yelled at her,  "Do you hear me?  Stay!  You're not leaving me.  Keep your heart beating!"
Her eyes wheeled, looking for me, or him, but seeing nothing.
I stared into them anyway, keeping my gaze locked there.
And then her body was suddenly still under my hands, though her breathing picked up roughly and her heart continued to thud.  I realized the stillness meant that it was over.  The internal beating was over.  It must be out of her.
It was.
Edward whispered, "Renesmee." ~ Jacob and Edward, chpt 18





Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 28

"How many times had I imagined her naked?  Now I couldn't look.  I was afraid to have these memories in my head.
"What's happening, Edward?"
"He's suffocating!"
"The placenta must have detached!"
Somewhere in this, Bella came around.  She responded to their words with a shriek that clawed at my eardrums.
"Get him OUT!, she screamed. "He can't BREATHE! Do it NOW!" ~Jacob, Edward, and Bella, chpt 18




"And the she went totally limp, slumping toward the floor.  Rosalie caught her in the same instant, before she could fall.  Edward was there too, hands out, the mess on the sofa forgotten.
"Bella?" he asked, and then his eyes unfocused, and panic shot across his features.
A half second later, Bella screamed....
~Edward, chpt 17

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 27

"Tomorrow, she'd be my enemy.  Or she'd be my ally.  And, apparently, that distinction was up to me." ~ Jacob, chpt 17


"I have to ask you for something - to beg, if I must."
"I don't have anything left," I choked out.
He lifted his hand again, as if to put it on my shoulder, but then let it drop like before and sighed.
"I know how much you have given," he said quietly.  "But this is something you do have, and only you.  I'm asking this of the true Alpha, Jacob.  I'm asking this of Ephraim's heir."
I was way past being able to respond.
"I want your permission to deviate from what we agreed to in the treaty with Ephraim.  I want you to grant us an exception.  I want your permission to save her life.  You know I'll do it anyway, but I don't want to break faith with you if there is any way to avoid  it." ~ Edward and Jacob, chpt 17








"I'm sorry," he whispered.  "I'm truly sorry for the pain this causes you, Jacob.  Though you hate me. I must admit that I don't feel the same about you.  I think of you as a...a brother in many ways.  A comrade in arms, at the very least.  I regret your suffering more than you realize.  But Bella is going to survive"- when he said that his voice was fierce, even violent-"and I know that's what really matters to you." ~ Edward, chpt 17

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 26

'If you can't or won't control Leah, then I-"
"Leah?" I interrupted, speaking through my teeth. "What happened?"
Edward's face was hard.  "She came up to see why you'd left so abruptly.  I tried to explain.  I suppose it might not have come out right."
"What did she do?"
"She phased out of her human form and - She wanted to speak to Bella."
"To Bella?"
Edward got all hissy then.  "I won't let Bella be upset like that again. I don't care how justified Leah thinks she is!  I didn't hurt her - of course I wouldn't - but I'll throw her out of the house if it happens again.  I'll launch her right across the river-"
...
"Wait - Leah was yelling at Bella about me?"
He nodded one sharp nod.  "You were quite vehemently championed." ~Edward and Jacob, chpt 17



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 26

"Magic wasn't going to save me.  I was just going to have to take the torture like a man.  Suck it up." ~ Jacob, chpt 17



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 26

"I sort of had a plan as I ran to the Cullen's garage.  The second part of it was totaling the bloodsucker's car on my way back.
So I was at a loss when I mashed the button on the keyless remote, and it was not the Volvo that beeped and flashed its lights for me.  It was another car - a standout even in the long line of vehicles that were mostly all drool-worthy in their own ways.
Did he actually mean to give me the keys to an Aston Martin Vanquish, or was that an accident?" ~ Jacob, chpt 17

Stealing Steel Vanquish

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 25

"In that moment, I knew I was alone.  All alone.
I wanted to kick myself when I realized how much I'd been counting on that loathsome vampire.  How stupid - as if you could ever trust a leech!  Of course he would betray me in the end." ~ Jacob, chpt 16




"I kicked a few things around.  Playing with RenĂ©e and Esme.  I was thinking.... Ruh-nez-may."
"Ruhnezmay?"
"R-e-n-e-s-m-e-e.  Too weird?"
"No I like it," Rosalie assured her.  "Its beautiful.  And one of a kind, so that fits."
"I still think he's an Edward." ~ Rosalie and Bella discussing baby names, chpt 16




"Edward, very lightly, put both of his hands against her huge, round stomach.
"The f---"  He swallowed.  "It...the baby likes the sound of your voice."
There was one short beat of total silence. I could not move a muscle, even to blink.  Then-
"Holy crow, you can hear him!"  Bella shouted. ~ Edward and Bella, chpt 16

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 24

"Ew, someone put the dog out," she murmured, wrinkling her nose.
"Have you heard this one, Psycho?  How do a blonde's brain cells die?"
She didn't say anything.
"Well?" I asked.  "Do you know the punch line or not?"
She looked pointedly at the TV and ignored me. "Has she heard it?" I asked Edward.
There was no humor on his tense face - he didn't move his eyes from Bella.  But he said, "No."
"Awesome.  So you'll enjoy this, bloodsucker - a blonde's brain cell die alone." ~Rosalie and Jacob, chpt 16



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 24

'You really want to imprint, or be imprinted on, or whatever?  I demanded.  What's wrong with going out and falling in love like a normal person, Leah?  Imprinting is just another way of getting your choices taken away from you....


You don't want to imprint?
Hell, no!
That's because you're already in love with her.  That would go away, you know, if you imprinted.  You wouldn't have to hurt over her anymore." ~ Jacob and Leah, chpt 16



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 24

"Silently I lifted my doggy bowl off the floor.  Then, with a quick, powerful flip to my wrist, I threw it into the back of Blondie's head so hard that - with an earsplitting bang - it smashed flat before it ricocheted across the room and snapped the round piece off the thick newel post at the foot of the stairs...
"Dumb blonde." I muttered.
"You.  Got.  Food.  In.  My.  Hair."
Jacob and Rosalie - chpt 15

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 23

"She's not allowed to tell Charlie the truth - it would be very dangerous for him.  But he's a smart, practical man.  She thinks he'll come up with his own explanation.  She assumes he'll get it wrong."  He snorted.  "After all, we hardly adhere to vampire canon." ~ Edward, to Jacob, chpt 15



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 23

"Why do you want me here?  Seth could keep you warm, and he's probably easier to be around, happy little punk.  But when I walk in the door, you smile like I'm your favorite person in the world."
"You're one of them."
"That sucks, you know."
"Yeah."  she sighed.  "Sorry."
"Why, though?  You didn't answer that."
...
"It feels... complete when you're here, Jacob.  Like all my family is together." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 15



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 23


"So...um...what's the, er, date?  You know, the due date for the little monster."

She smacked the back of my head with about as much force as a drifting feather, but didn't answer...
"I don't know," she murmured.  "Not exactly.  Obviously we're not going with the nine month model here..." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 15

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 22

"Hey, what do you call a blonde with a brain?" I asked, and then continued in the same breath, "A golden retriever."
"I've heard that one too," she said, no longer smiling.
"I'll keep trying," I promised." ~ Jacob and Rosalie, chpt 15




"There was a lot of banging in the kitchen, and- weirdly- the sound of metal protesting as it was abused.  Edward sighed again, but smiled just a little too.  Then Rosalie was back before I could think much more about it.  With a pleased smirk, she set a silver bowl on the floor next to me.
"Enjoy, mongrel."
"It had probably once been a big mixing bowl, but she'd bent the bowl back on itself until it way shaped almost like a dog dish.  I had to be impressed with her quick craftsmanship.  And her attention to detail.  She'd scratched the word FIDO into the side.  Excellent handwriting."~ Jacob and Rosalie, chpt 15



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 22

"Alice wants you, too.  She says she's tired of hanging out in the attic like the vampire bat in the belfry.  Seth snorted a laugh." ~ Seth, to Jacob, chpt 15

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 21

"This was the problem with hanging out with vampires- you got used to them.  They started messing up the way you saw the world.  They started feeling like friends." ~ Jacob, chpt 14







Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 21

"What's for breakfast?" I asked, a little sarcastic.  "O negative or AB positive?"
She stuck her tongue out at me.  Totally herself again.  "Omelets," she said." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 14




"Anyway, they had all this food and, dang,' -he turned to Edward-"man, you can cook."
"Thank you," Edward murmured." ~ Seth and Edward, chpt 14


Who DOESN'T love a man that can cook!!!  LOL

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 20



"Alice was a tiny little thing.  'Bout the size of one of my arms.  She looked even smaller now, sort of hunched in on herself.  Her small face was pinched.
"Vampires get headaches?"
"Not the normal ones."
I snorted.  Normal vampires...." ~ Jacob and Alice, chpt 14



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 20

"So they had a blood bank and an x-ray machine?  Guess the doc brought his work home with him." ~ Jacob, chpt 14



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 20

"Vampire mother-hen - bizzarre." ~ Jacob, chpt 14

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 19

"You know how you drown a blonde, Rosalie?" I asked without stopping or turning to look at her.  "Glue a mirror to the bottom of a pool."
...


"I've already heard that one," Rosalie called after me." ~ Jacob and Rosalie, chpt 14



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 19

"I couldn't remember the last time she'd looked so excited to see me.
What was with her?  For crying out loud she was married!  Happily married too - there was no question that she was in love with her vampire past the boundaries of sanity.  And hugely pregnant to top it off.

So why did she have to be so damned thrilled to see me?  Like I'd made her whole freakin' day better by walking through the door." ~ Jacob, chpt 14

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 18

"You're scared of Leah, but you're best buds with the psychopathic blonde?"
There was a low hiss from the second floor.  Cool, she'd heard me."



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 18

"Why the hell are you here??
You think I'm just going to sit at home while my little brother volunteers as a vampire chew toy?" ~ Jacob and Leah, chpt 12


"What do you think you're doing, Leah?"
She huffed a heavy sigh.  It's pretty obvious, isn't it?  I'm joining your crappy little renegade pack.  The vampires' guard dogs.  She barked out a low, sarcastic laugh." ~ Jacob and Leah, chpt 12



Friday, 4 November 2011

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 17

"This would be a lot easier if the communication wasn't one way.  Then again, I was kinda glad I wasn't in his head." ~ Jacob, chpt 11



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 17

"You want me to be all doom and gloom , or just shut up?
Just shut up.
Can do.
Really?  Doesn't seem like it." ~ Seth and Jacob, chpt 11


Yay! Team Seth!

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 18

"I had to warn the Cullens before the pack could get it together and stop me.  If the Cullens were prepared, it might give Sam a reason to rethink this before it was too late." ~ Jacob, chpt 11



Thursday, 3 November 2011

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 17

"The bonds fell off my body the second I embraced my birthright.
I could feel it gathering in me, both a freedom and also a strange, hollow power.  Hollow because an Alpha's power came from his pack, and I had no pack.  For a second, loneliness overwhelmed me.
I had no pack now." ~ Jacob, chpt 11







Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 17

"Why do you always have to love the wrong things, Bella?"
"I don't think that I do" ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 10


"You're not planning on surviving this human," I stated dully.
"No, I'm not stupid." She met my stare then.  "I guess you probably have your own opinion on that point, though."
"Emergency vampirization," I mumbled." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 10



Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 16

"Did you know that 'I told you so' has a brother, Jacob?" she asked, cutting me off.  "His name is 'Shut the hell up.' "
"Good one." ~ Bella and Jacob, chpt 10



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 16

"Over my pile of ashes," Rosalie hissed. ~ Rosalie, chpt 10



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 16

"He was right - she was beating herself up about hurting his feelings.  The girl was a classic martyr.  She'd totally been born in the wrong century.  She should have lived back when she could have gotten herself fed to some lions for a good cause." ~ Jacob, about Bella, chpt 10





Tuesday, 1 November 2011

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 15

"I felt like - like I don't know what. Like this wasn't real. Like I was in some Goth version of a bad sitcom. Instead of being the A/V dweeb about to ask the head cheerleader to the prom, I was the finished-second-place werewolf about to ask the vampire's wife to shack up and procreate.  Nice." ~ Jacob, chpt 10


"If it's a child she wants, she can have it. She can have half a dozen babies.  Anything she wants." He paused for one beat.  "She can have puppies, if that what it takes." ~Edward, to Jacob, Chpt 9


"Jeez, she was running true to form.  Of course, die for the monster spawn.  It was so Bella." ~ Jacob, chpt 9

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 14

"They were all here, all together but that was not what  froze me where I stood and had my jaw dropping to the floor.
It was Edward.  It was the expression on his face.
I'd seen him angry, and I'd seen him arrogant, and once I'd seen him in pain.  But this - this was beyond agony." ~ Jacob, chpt 9



Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 14

"Nope, the pack wasn't attacking anyone today.
But I was." ~ Jacob chpt 8


"The pack is not attacking the Cullen's without provocation. The spirit of the treaty remains. They are not a danger to our people, nor are they a danger to the people of Forks.  Bella Swan made an informed choice, and we are not going to punish our former allies for her choice." ~ Sam, chpt 8
