1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?

Oh crap! I was really worried at this point. I was starting to wonder earlier of the significance of the room Alice was drawing. I had no idea that it would be Bella's house.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

Bella chose not to tell Alice and Jasper because they would worry about her, and try to interfere with what she needed to do. Bella knows what Edward would want her to do, but she was trying to protect everyone involved. She didn't want anything to happen to her mother or her new family.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?

I think she broke it. As had been said before, Bella has a very strong mind. If she can block Edward's mind reading, Jasper would be no match for her. I think her survival instinct kicked in and if she remained under Jasper's influence, she wouldn't be able to accomplish anything.

Ah! James has gotten to Renee or he is going to get to her soon.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

They would have stopped her immediately and tried to find another way around it and if that were the case Bella would know that her mother was done for.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?

A bit of a combination. I think that it can be resisted but that would take alot of strength to do that which I don't think she had built up yet. Almost like a tolerance to it. So with that I think Jasper broke it off because he didn't really want to upset her more than she already was when she eventually did wake up.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

-i was fine. i was nervous like crazy for bella but i was fine. i just knew edward would save the day. :wink:

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
-obviously they would stop her. :wink:

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?
-maybe its part of her mind blocking out powers of vampires around her. and she was really aggravated, i think that played a big part. 8)

OH NO. lol.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

Because then the plan would be ruined.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?

I think both. I think she was able enough to get over his power and make herself in control again. But I also think that Jasper figured it out and left her alone.

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?

A: I was freaked. It's that moment where you're all "NO DON'T OPEN THE DOOR" and the person on screen just doesn't listen. :D

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

A: She knows they'll try to stop her. She's seen the whole Cullen family now and she knows how they'll react in respect to herself and Edward.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?

A: I think he gave up. I don't think he wanted to push knowing it might cause problems later. Suppressing emotions only works so long and sometimes when they finally get out it's worse than if they'd been able to be released naturally.

I was thinking that it was not a good sign.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
Because she wants to protect her mother and knows that they might get in the way/or they could get hurt. I would have probably done the same thing...going into martyr mode to protect the ones I loved.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?
I think that he gave up.

1. I was shocked and a little frightened for Bella.

2. She doesnt want her new family to get involved and is willing to risk herself to protect everyone else.

3. Gave up.

She knows that they would never let her!

I think he just gave up.

I don't think it clicked at first. And then I was like, "Oh crap, oh crap, oh crap!"

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
She is the most selfless person in the book, she would rather die a horrible death than entertain the idea that someone she cares about might be hurt.

3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?
I think he may have given up, or that she was so freaked out it didn't work.
