Let me say something to answer an onslaught of reviews that sound like this:
"This is just like the Breaking Dawn plotline!"
"All the clichéd authors beat Steph Meyer to it!"
And etc. Now, I will make one thing very clear. It is the airheadedness and utter lack of acknowledgement to canon that makes these stories clichéd. Bella's pregnancy cliché, for instance, is one where she hops merrily along and has a baby normally. Steph made it REAL. NO ONE on Fanfiction has written it the same as that, I can guarantee.
And Jake imprinting on Bella's daughter? Hmmm, NORMALLY doesn't happen when he's trying to kill her in clichés!!
Let's not forget to mention the Bella Immunity To Blood. In Breaking Dawn, she is NOT IMMUNE. She struggles, but her shield ability (which makes perfect sense) helps her with the struggle.
And Charlie? Not engagement-happy as in clichés. He would have destroyed Bella if he didn't think Renee would do it for him.
There's many parts of Breaking Dawn that lean toward the cliché, I'll grant you that. But it's the simple fact that Stephenie Meyer included the important bits that veered it from cliché that makes Breaking Dawn one of a kind. She did what AOTC is trying to inspire authors on Fanfiction to do – she took clichés and made them one of a kind.
Don't flame Breaking Dawn. Nothing has ever struck such a hard blow against the clichés we war against than to take them un un-cliché them.
