I’ll just never believe it. Canon or not, I’ll never be convinced that the only reason why Jacob was so drawn to Bella (and she to him) was because of his predestined imprint to Renesmee. Bella can be with Edward. That’s fine. Better for Jake in the end anyway, honestly. But you’re not gonna tell me Jacob and Bella weren’t really in love with each other. That’s a straight-up lie.
Plus: If Nessie was the only reason he was attracted to Bella by extension he should have been attracted to Edward, too, since Nessie is after all half Bella half Ed.
And then there’s Sam’s preceeding example; He never stopped loving Leah even after he imprinted. So why should Jacob stop loving Bella? Only explanation to that would be that there’s nothing Bella about Bella anymore, which then again would contradict the whole fragile cardhouse that is the creation and existence of a vampire Bella who supposedly didn’t change all that much and is oh so much more awesome. None of it makes sense. Breaking Dawn is a heap of non matching puzzle pieces.
