In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 24 -- Surprise · 12:54pm Jul 15th, 2018

Bella gets a new house for her birthday and it’s purty.

That’s it.

I FUCKING HATE THIS BOOK.

Well, okay. That’s not completely it. It does have one of the better Alice moments, where she and Edward have both gotten Bella gifts and each wants to give theirs first:

“I know — I’ll play you for it,” Alice suggested. “Rock, paper, scissors.”

Jasper chuckled and Edward sighed.

“Why don’t you just tell me who wins?” Edward said wryly.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 7 -- Unexpected · 10:49am Jun 28th, 2018

Bella has another dream about the immortal child, again with the Volturi coming for him, only this time she feels powerful and wants to protect him. Why? ’Cause he’s purty? Didn’t you hear about all the destruction they could cause? The Volturi are trying to keep vampires secret and keep humans from hunting them down. It’s not like they’re stomping around, going, “No fun allowed!” It’s like they’re trying to keep you from skating somewhere because that somewhere is a minefield. When she wakes

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 14 -- You Know Things Are Bad When You Feel Guilty For Being Rude to Vampires · 10:42am Jul 5th, 2018

You know things are even worse when you feel tired for complaining about all the padding.

Jacob arrives at the Cullens’ and finds a fresh set of clothes waiting for him. As he’d torn his last set changing when he left the house last chapter, he’s grateful. He re-enters the living room and finds that it’s back to mostly normal, with no hospital bed or anything. Bella hears Jacob enter and her face lights up.

What do I look like? A writer? You need some good prose? You need some good characters? TOO BAD. They’re mine. You’re not getting anything.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 8 -- Waiting for the Damn Fight to Start Already · 10:44am Jun 29th, 2018

Waiting for the damn book to end already. Notice something different about the chapter title? For the next ten or so chapters, the book’s narrated by Jacob instead of Bella. And if he’s anything like he was at the end of Eclipse, this is going to be painful. VERY. VERY. PAINFUL.

There’s a “preface” for this section, too. This is it, in its entirety:

Life sucks, and then you die.

Yeah, I should be so lucky.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 38 -- Power · 12:35pm Jul 29th, 2018

As the Volturi talk, Bella keeps her shield up. Jane and Alec attempt to incapacitate the Cullens and their allies, to keep them from running away, but it’s to no avail against Bella’s shield. When the Volturi break off, Aro says that, regardless of the decision, it doesn’t need to come to violence and it would be a shame for anyone to die. This prompts exclamations of disbelief from the Cullens’ side. I’d just like to remind you all one more time that the only evidence of the Volturi wanting

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 33 -- Forgery · 10:44am Jul 24th, 2018

Bella finally decides to look into J. Jenks. She drives Jacob and Nessie over to Charlie’s, telling Edward that she wants to give Charlie a chance to visit Nessie so she can use the away time to head to Seattle. Why she can’t just say, “I need to go to Seattle. Alice left a message that she only wanted me to see. I want to tell you but I don’t think I should. Sorry.”, I don’t know. Jacob’s still not happy with the vampires, particularly the Romanians. Nessie, however, is fascinated with them,

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 29 -- Defection · 10:35am Jul 20th, 2018

Showing fantastic proactivity, the Cullens wait for Alice to return. For hours. They don’t even send someone out to check up on her. What do Bella and Edward do during this? Take a wild guess.

We’d stared at each other all night, staring at what neither of us could live through losing: the other.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 2 -- Long Night · 1:19pm Jun 23rd, 2018

This must set some kind of record. These are the very first sentences in the chapter:

“I miss you already.”

“I don’t need to leave. I can stay…”

Four words in, and CM + 1. Wow. Even by this series’ standards, wow.

It’s the night before the wedding, and our resident codependent couple is in the middle of a kissing session. Quite a clingy one, too:

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 3 -- Big Day · 12:48pm Jun 24th, 2018

Bella wakes up and is, for some reason, annoyed with herself for having that dream about the immortal child, as if she could control what she dreams. After breakfast, she and Charlie get ready, and Alice arrives to help them put the finishing touches on their clothes and make them look presentable. There’s an interesting bit where Alice mentions that, to keep the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride’s dress before the wedding, she’s been very careful to not think about the dress when

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 27 -- Travel Plans · 10:36am Jul 18th, 2018

Most of this chapter is a sort of montage/summary of the first three months of Bella’s vampirization. It’s perfect, of course. She claims to take mythology a lot more seriously, which could be interesting, but it’s only so she can make a too-long metaphor about the Fates’ loom and the color of the threads of herself, her family, and her friends. Nessie keeps growing quickly and she’s adorable without having any character. Alice and Rosalie make a scrapbook of her growth to create the

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 4 -- Gesture · 11:07am Jun 25th, 2018

The reception begins as Bella looks over all the people who’ve come. A lot of it is listing off names of the obligatory guests — friends and family who don’t play much of a role in the rest of the series. In spite of being a werewolf, Seth is genuinely enthusiastic that Bella and Edward got married. They go through the cake-cutting, the pictures, the dancing, everything. (I’m kind of curious who’s the poor schmuck who got stuck serving the beer and wine. When my brother got married, I, being an

Bella and Edward pork all night, and she’s still not satisfied. It takes Edward saying Nessie’s name to snap her out of it. They get changed; we get another mention of how the closet is filled with lotsa clothes and can’t ANYTHING come hard to this couple?! In the middle of changing, we get yet another reminder of how so frigging hot like whoa Edward is that somehow manages to double as a reminder that their sex is TOATELLY GRAET EWE GAIS:

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 30 -- Irresistible · 1:16pm Jul 21st, 2018

Bella’s stressing out about everything: the Volturi, Alice’s desertion, the fact that she’ll have to learn how to fight, J. Jenks, the vampires who’ll be coming over, everything. She tries to talk to Edward about it, but before she can get the words out, he’s kissing her. And then she just forgets about asking questions for the night.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 15 -- Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock · 10:33am Jul 6th, 2018

Snide phrase that connects back to the chapter title in some way.

While Jacob and Seth are on patrol, Jacob wonders why the Cullens just don’t take Bella somewhere else, away from Sam. Seth says he’s already asked that; the Cullens have too many medical supplies to transport easily, and collecting them takes a lot of time. This debate takes two whole pages. I hate this book.

'Breaking Dawn: Chapter Six' is now up! · 9:17am Jul 24th, 2021

Small update!
After battling with my mental health and writer's block for months, along with dealing with a few lost family due to Covid, I have finally finished the sixth chapter of Breaking Dawn, which is now up and live for you all to read!
Sorry it's taken so long, I've NOT been in the best way lately.

I'm going to the states for a few weeks next month to visit my in-laws with the Mrs, which will give me a change of scenery for a bit.
