Father-Daughter by khildress Father-Daughter by khildress
---------------------SPOILER ALERT-----------------------



I just finished Breaking Dawn and felt a bit compeled to draw a bit of it. I have a few other ideas but I first wanted to draw Edward with his daugther Nessie. I almost thought about making it Jacob but I have a better idea for that pairing.

It's kind of sad that some people aren't liking how it all ended. I was a bit hesitant to finish the series because I personally viewed the last two books to be a bit disapointing, not that they were bad, only that they went in directions that I wasn't happy with. But now that I've read the finale, I can see why Stephenie wrote those books the way she did.

And all I can say now is, 'Wow' and 'Holy mother of god was that good.' It even got a few tears out of me.

I will admit that it was hard to read at first because she went in this totally bizaare direction I was completely not expecting, but by the second half I was sold. Nessie really can completely capture your heart.

I'm not going to lie and say this came completely out of my head, because I'm not that good. I found the PERFECT piece of reference from :iconfairyfan: and her piece "a father's embrace." [link]

Edward, Nessie and any other characters of the Twlight Saga belong to Stephenie Meyer and Little, Brown. Not me.

I like how you drew this.
How Edward looks so, so young (I know, he's vampire stuck as a seventeen year old) and awkward with her, which is completely understandable, considering, hey, kids really weren't something that he was ever going to considered.
So anyway, I don't know, I just really like this, its exactly how I imagined Edward to look like with Nessie when he is still learning to be a, you know, a father. I like how he's holding her both protectively yet at the same time with blind love, so yeah.
Great Job!

Thanks for the comment!

I wouldn't go as far to say that I hate Jacob, he just really started to annoy me in Eclipse. And then even more so in Breaking Dawn.

this makes me want to cry.
I loved how Nessie's character formed, but I was really dissapointed how SM didn't put much emphasis on Edwards character in the book. Towards the beggining, when It was just Bella-pregnant, and Edward was all depressed, I could totally see it, but after Nessie, there just wasn't anything =(
I would have loved a scene where it was from Bella's point of view walking into a room and seeing a moment between Nessie and Edward.. *sudden shock* I think I feel a bit of fan fiction coming on! *grin*

This is just gorgeous. The piece, everything.
I may just suggest this as an ID, yes I may :D

There were some moments where there were Edward/Nessie moments. But they were rare. I do agree though, there should of been more.

Oh god, amazing. I loved Breaking Dawn as well, I got kind of frustrated when people kept saying it was like a "fanfic". When really, how do you possibly write a "fanfic ending," if it was a fanfic, it was one hell of one.

I was waiting for blood shed to be honest, the only disappointment, however Nessie really intrigued me and made me fall in love with the book regardless of the lack of bloodshed haha. This piece is absolutely beautiful. I was on Edward's and Jacob's point of view about the abortion even though I'm complete against that kind of thought. I was kicking myself for even thinking it, but it was hard NOT to when she described so much pain. And say what you will but premonition or not, I already kind of had the feeling Jacob was going to imprint on the kid.

Hahah, and I was really trying to picture Edwrad's face when he could read the baby's mind. But you gave me a perfect image of what he must have looked like after bella was okay and holding baby nessie (: Jesum, this is one long comment, I'll stop hahaha.

Hahaha, during her pregnancy and Renesmee's birth, I kept getting these strange flashbacks of Stephen King's "Pet Cemetary." (Especially the moment when Bella's back broke. That was scary!) Oddly enough though, I knew she wasn't going to come out a crazy blood thirsty baby. I'm glad how it ended though. I just wish more people were.

But THANK YOU for the long comment (and fav!). I looooove long comments. :D

It's very well drawn, I love the color scheme and what the image represents. In BD, you really never saw much of Edward's paternal side, this pic captures it perfectly.
In short, great job ... :+fav:

Thank you so much for this pic (I love it) *__*, it gave me the peace I was looking for after reading too many harsh and rude comments towards the book and Stephenie (they were making me feel like a complete idiot for loving it... well, maybe i am, but not for that @_@... i got still problems getting over it XD). I will keep looking at it for days, really. Thank you so very much. That's love.

I've avoided reading the bad stuff bout Breaking Dawn. It just makes me sad. I loved it and I just wanted others to love it as much as I did, and I felt that maybe if I drew a little tidbit of it, it would change their mind. I'm glad you loved it as much as I did though. And you're definately not an idiot for loving it. Because then there'd be a lot of idiots all over the place. Thank you for such a lovely comment. It really made my day. :D

I agree. I felt stephanie not
only brought a lot of the story
together but not only that the
story started to grow up n its
just that everyone didn't WANT
it to grow up.

Idk but I love that they got to have
a child. I think that was defidently
unexpected!

To tell you the truth, when I found out that Bella was pregnant I thought it was kind of lame and I was worried that the rest of the book was going to stand up to that cliche. All I could think about was Bella giving birth to some evil sharp-toothed baby of doom.

I'm glad I was wrong. And in the end I think it's my favorite next to Twilight of course.

I'm glad you like my drawing too!

I think this is fabulous!

There were parts that I wasn't fond of and places where my mind went in the what-the-heck-just-happened? direction, but overall, I loved it. I'm happy that everyone got their happily ever-after. :3 I was so afraid that either Carlisle or Seth was going to die.

I read a book eons ago where a bunch of these deamon babies rose from the dead and started killing people, and that's all I could really think about up until a certain point. I really glad the story took a different turn after that. Because all I was expecting was this evil killer baby with sharp teeth. Ahaa, I don't think Stephenie would have the heart to kill any of her characters. I bet she even had a hard time killing James and then Laruent. The thought of Carlisle or Seth dying never really crossed my mind. But I am super glad that they didn't!

But, thanks for the comment and the fav! I wasn't expecting such a reaction so quickly. Thanks!

The minute I finished the book, I was looking up fanart. Hah. And I keep looking every day as more people finish. :P

I was with my friend and we were both reading, so we just came up with LOADS of theories. I think the reason why I thought Seth would die was because of how innocent he was, and when he went to go see who was home and Jacob was telling him not to, I nearly had a heart attack. I was so afraid for the kid. And Carlisle is just too peaceful and respectful to put up much of a fight. :{

Oh god! hah! That would have been horrifying! Scary babies! I just kept imagining 2 year olds on top of dead bodies like in Bella's dream. xD

haha, I just ran across this totally awesome icon [link] and it had me on the floor laughing.

Ahaha, I was being silly and was looking up fanart before I even finished and I had to kind thump myself in the head for doing something so silly.

That would've been SO Harry Potter if she killed someone. I'm glad she didn't. But, dude, I'm just glad that I got my happy ending. Heck, she even titled the last chapter "The Happily Ever After." I'm a total sucker for happy endings.

AND, I'm working on some more fanart. Hopefully I'll get it up tomorrow evening. It's of Bella this time though.

I had to SMACK my friend for going to the back and looking at the chart of all the vampires. She was like, WHAT ARE THE STARS FOR!? and I just freaked because I thought it might be important. "IT'S AT THE BACK FOR A REASON!" xD But she got revenge because I was about 20 pages ahead of her at all times and whenever I giggled or gasped or teared up, she attacked me. xD

Aww! YAY! I'm looking forward to it! And whenever I look up fanart, I usually have one obsession for the moment, so it doesn't matter. I'll be ready to look tomorrow and just as excited. :P
