1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I thought it was really low of her to use the same words her mother did, I think she could've said something else. But I guess in the heat of the moment, she did what she had to do, and got the job done.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
I think it's because Alice and Edward can relate most to each other, they both have pretty similar gifts. Alice is probably the closest person to him out of the Cullens [sibling wise]. I also think that Alic understands Edward more than the others.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I think Laurent was genuinely curious and didn't want trouble. I think with James' coven, Laurent was the third wheel. I also think it was smart on his behalf to leave, because he probably would've been the first to go out of the three.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I wasn't surprised he felt that way, I was just surprised that he said it out loud. Jasper is one of my favorite characters and I think he said this to try to help Bella. He just wants to see Edward happy, and if that means saving a human, he'll do it.

1.What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I think that while it hurt Charlie, she knew he was in more danger if she stayed in Forks. It was what she had to do to make sure he was safe.
2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
I think Alice and Edward are very much like brother and sister, so he listens to her. I think he also knows that she likes Bella, and wants to make sure that she's safe.
3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
Laurent was really only with Victoria and James for conveniency's sake. He didn't want to get involved with the whole "Lets take down Bella" thing.
4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
Aw this made me love Jasper. I think that since he lives with Edward, he could see that he changed for the better after he met Bella, and he doesn't want him to loose her.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
-She was worried for her Dad's life. There is no "too far" When the goal is to save the ones you love.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
-It's indicative of only one thing. UNCONDITIONAL RESPECT & TRUST.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
-"Drama, Drama, Drama." He was getting out of the way. This wasn't his fight. He wasn't obsessed with Bella one way or the other. So, he headed for the hills. Plus, I think of him as part philosopher part politician. He was intrigued. He wanted to see what the other side had to offer.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
-I was surprised that he said anything about his feelings. He generally keeps to himself and that was a very deep thing to admit. I think he tends to not talk, especially about emotions because he "exists in a climate of emotion" the last thing he wants to do is talk about it. For him to reach out to her in that way was surprising. Well, as if Edward's love wasn't enough to make her priceless, Alice is Jasper's WORLD! And she adores her. End of story. She is more than worth it to him.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I think she went the only way she could, it was the only way she was getting out of the house without a hundred questions being thrown at her. Charlie wouldn't have let her go for anything less. I think it hurt Bella as much to say it as it hurt Charlie to hear it. Bella is a good daughter and she did what she had to, to protect Charlie.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
I think that the two of them have a true sibling relationship, over the time they have spent together you would have to assume that they knew each other pretty well. Alice is an awesome character and I think that she genuinely thinks of Edward as her brother and vice versa.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I think the Cullen's intimidated him, they are a large coven and they all have their strengths. Not only that but they were welcoming when he, James and Victoria arrived, they probably fascinate him, which would tie in with his decision to head to Denali.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
He's Alice's soul mate, that has to say a lot in itself. Not only that he has been with the Cullen's just as long as Alice has, he knows his brother well enough to determine his happiness.
There could be an unanswered question though, what has Alice seen in the future, we know she's seen Bella change, which I would think means she sees past that, further into Bella's future. The question is what does she see?

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far? i think it was a little rough on Charlie but proved how much she trusts the Cullens.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship? i think it shows how great the bond is between Edward and Alice. they are really in tune with each other not just as brother and sister but as best friends.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali? well i think this shows that Laurent knows he doesn't stand a chance against the Cullens.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion? no jasper can feel all feelings so it does not surprise me.

regarding questions 3 and 4
3) Laurent didn't have a very strong bond with James and Victoria if you read on page 400 he also states that he is intruiged by the life that the cullens have create. he also says that he won't go against James
4)(personal opinion) Jasper must sense the love that Edward has for Bella and vis versa. he would be able to feel the way that Edward feels. So obviously Jasper would know that Edward felt that Bella was the most important thing in his live now and forever. which would interen make her worth it

1. What did you think about the tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

I thought it was great, but she did hurt Charlie by doing it.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?


That they are really close. He loves her in a sisterly way. Its really adorable :D

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

Because he most probably thought he was no match for the Cullens.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could feel that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I think he grew fond of her

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

It was the perfect way to get herself out of there. She knew that she had to hurt Charlie somehow otherwise he wouldn't let her go and would sit and try and reason with her. I was really sad as to how hurt Charlie was and to be honest it was bellow the belt to say the same thing that her mother did when she left that just have torn Charlie apart for a while.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

That they are just like any other family. When it comes down to it there will always be bickering among them no matter how much you love each other. Plus the fact that he does listen to Alice shows that their trust and understanding for one another.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

He wasn't really close to them to begin with and seemed genuinely intrigued by the Cullens' lifestyle. I also think he was a bit intimidated and scared by them. He knew that if it did come down to a fight, he along with James and Victoria would not stand a snowball's chance in hell.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I was a bit surprised but only because that was the first time we really got to see him use his power telling her that she feels worthless and shouldn't feel that way and I'm glad he actually expressed his feelings on the matter. He knows the bond that Bella and Edward have and he has a similar one to Alice and he knows how that works. He's glad to see Edward happy and to have found someone.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

1. What did you think of the tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
-i think it was perfect for the book. she really wanted to get out, and she hurt charlie to "save" him. it was awesome that she said the same things renee said to charlie when she left. :twisted:

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
-if you're read midnight sun like i did, it gives an impression that alice and edward are really close in a bestfriend kind of way, because they are "freaks among freaks". :D

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
-as laurent said, he doesn't want to go up against james because he's so lethal (yeah right! :twisted: )... or maybe laurent just wants to see the girls in Denali. :P

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
-just as alice had said, if they lose bella, they can't live with edward for the next 100 years. 8)

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I think she thought of the best way to have Charlie leave her alone. While it was harsh for her to say the same thing to him that her mother said, it was for his own good.

2. There is a lot of interraction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
That Edward is closer to the two of them even though they are a family, some do seem closer than others.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I think it's because he doesn't see himself as a tracker like they are. He was more in their coven for protection and didn't seem like he wanted to be a part of the hunt for Bella.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I was surprised because even though Jasper knows whats going on with peoples emotions, I didn't think he would say that to her. It made me wonder what else Jasper thinks about Edward and Bella. But really it made me love Jasper even more.
