Crusader for Literature wrote I was trying to make a point about ignorance to literature (or lack thereof) of those who don't see things my way; just those who are averse to seeing books in ways other than the author's blatantly obvious intention, if the actual books support it. Yes, I believe I kn...

What I mean is that the circumstances could be exactly the same, but if Ms. Meyer told us Jessica was selfless and Bella shallow, with no change to either character's circumstance most people who defend Bella as a person with mostly admirable qualities despite a difficult life would instead sympath...

IF he didn't come back for like a few months (though we all know we he'd be back sooner) Do you think Jake really could've gotten her to be 'his' like his plan mentioned in Eclipse? That she would be in love with him rather than Edward? I do think that she would have given it a try with Jake. I don...

I agree with emilycullenx too. But my new understanding of Jacob came when I realized that Bella was more to blame than Jacob. He was just doing what felt natural based on the signals she was giving him...walking hand in hand on the beach, sneaking off to see him etc. He just ran with her signals kn...

I was mad at Jake at first, not as mad at Bella. But how can you be mad at Jake when Bella gave him so many mixed signals? Walking hand in hand on the beach, taking every spare moment to run to La Push, even "sneaking" away. Why wouldnt he believe that she loves him? And if he's worried that she's g...

Personally, if my friend came to school like that, I would be really worried. I'm sure maybe some of her friends were, but they should have went up to her and asked her if she was okay or took her aside and told her they were there for her. I think most people would, for a while anyway. It seems th...

Manta wrote Maybe people feel the need to defend Jacob more intensely, and in result they wind up semi-bashing Edward. Yeah, that makes alot of sense. I think even Stephenie Meyer said somewhere she feels the need to defend Jacob. Good point. greeneggs wrote Actually, a lot of people on Team Edward...

At first, and I am not sure why, I was totally against Edward becoming human. I guess I thought it would be too far fetched for the story....but we're talking about vampires and werewolves for heavens sake! So yeah, I think I would rather Edward become human. He would be happy with that, he already ...

Okay so kind of a new topic...but still hopefully on topic. It seems, and I could be totally wrong, that most people who are Team Edward also love Jacob and want him to be happy, they just dont want Bella with him. But those who are Team Jacob pretty much can't stand Edward. I wonder why that is. Li...
