when she got in trouble with street-prowling lowlifes and Edward rode in on the Vampire Volvo of Great Justice to save her. Volvo: The vehicle of choice for busting out hardcore rescue maneuvers, yet dependable enough for the everyday chauffeuring of one's delicate human. The name always sounded way too much like a woman's secret place
for Edward's comfort, but safety is important. In conclusion: Volvo.
Out of habit, Bella starts heading for trouble.]

So she goes out in search of her emotional crutch, only to find him out moping shirtless in the rain, his hair cut short, the Sign of the Boy Band Cult tattooed on his arm, all his charm gone. Unfortunately, like Samson, his awesome was in his hair. It's all downhill from here.]

]: ...and their mothers. So many, many mothers.
ARO: You see! I knew you would be useful to us. And so here we are--true love! A happy ending! Manflesh fanservice! Everyone wins! Jane, crucio them with your eyeliner.
ARO: Awetabulous! Splendiferous! The human has some kind of power as well! It would be terribly ironic if she were to use it against us someday! Not to worry, not to worry--we have to kill you all anyway. Shame. I mean, unless you were going to turn the human into a vampire, but--
BELLA: I'M TOTALLY OKAY WITH--
EDWARD: Stand back, my love, I will protect you! They can't hurt us--all we ever do in this "saga" is stand around and talk!© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
BELLA: --SERIOUSLY, THERE'S NO NEED TO--
ARO: Colossus? Pain him.
EDWARD: You can't do anything to me--I'm the hero! And I'm not just any hero--I'm the dreamiest hero there ever was!

ARO: Colossus? Pain him in the face.Fifteen Minutes of Hard Surfaces Later
[Colossus pile-drives Edward into several marble fixtures. Judging by the cheers, I'm guessing that this is the part the four guys in my audience came to see.]
ARO: Oh, Colossus
, those were my favorite steps. Well, anyway: kill them.
ALICE: No! Wait! I have seen the future, and Bella will
become a vampire, which makes everything okay!© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
[And then Alice shows Aro a flashforward to Breaking Dawn
--I am not making this up--in which Edward goes loping in slo-mo through a magical forest and then Bella runs by all a-sparkle, because apparently Bella getting vampired will send them back in time a hundred years to a world where Edward can finally wear all the beige
ARO: SERIOUSLY? Well, I can't wait
to see that. You're free to go!

[Bella's grounded for life, but that's okay because Edward's back to lurking in her room and watching her sleep, just the way it used to be. Ah, bliss.]© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
BELLA: Do I get to be a vampire now?
BELLA: How about now?

BELLA: BUT HE SAID I GET TO BE ONE NOW!Emergency Family Meeting, Chez Sparklepire
BELLA: All in favor of me becoming a vampire?
[Jasper's hair is all for Bella being less tasty, and Emmett is stoked to actually get a second line of dialogue, but Rosalie is all WHATEVER BELLA I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO BE GRATEFUL AND ALL THAT YOU SAVED EDWARD'S DUMB ASS BUT I NEVER WANTED TO BE A VAMPIRE SO YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER, AND ALSO: BABIES.

THE CULLENS: *unanimous*POINTLESS LOVE TRIANGLE WHATEVER WHY ARE WE STILL DOING THIS
EDWARD: Jacob, allow me to express my humble gratitude that you took care of my frail helpless woman after I punked out. P.S. I WIN.
JACOB: YEAH WELL IT SAYS IN THE WEREVAMP TREATY THAT YOU CAN'T BITE HER SO THERE
[And right as they're about to tear away their shirts and have an ab-off, Bella throws herself between the two men she loves! Gasp!
BELLA: Look, Jacob: Edward is the love of my life, but jerking you around makes me feel good. See you around in the next movie.© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
JACOB: Oh--yeah? Well--I'll--I'll go find a better series! A series that deserves a charming, snarky, comparatively normal character like me! A series that will actually give me a fighting chance at getting the girl--ANY girl--a girl who's already been BORN! THEN YOU'LL BE SORRY!
BELLA: Really? You will?
JACOB: ... *weresob*Not, Literally Speaking, The "Climax"
EDWARD: So you really want to be a vampire? You want to live forever? You want to be with me? You want, in living forever, to be forever with me?© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
BELLA: HELLO YOU HAVE GRADUATED SCHOOL LIKE FIFTY TIMES IN A ROW I THOUGHT YOU WERE SMART

EDWARD: [Pause. Pause pause pause. Pauuuuuuuse.]© 2009 Cleolinda Jones. Please quote or link back, do not repost. cleolinda.livejournal.com
BELLA: EDWARD, I AM DYING OF OLD AGE HERE, SPIT IT OUT
EDWARD: [Pauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse.] Marry me.
[You know why this is a cliffhanger? Because Bella's actual reply
is that she is too young to get married. TOO YOUNG. TO GET MARRIED. BEFORE SHE DIES. AS A TEENAGER.
Fortunately all the fangirl squee covered up the sound of my head exploding.]BELLA: If I say yes, can we do the sex now?
