1. We learn that Alice's visions change depending on the decisions of the person she is trying to observe. Did this surprise you at all or was this how you always thought her visions worked? And what does this say about the power of our own choices?

it says that we have the power to change the future by what we decide. our decisions are the key. I was not surprised because it kind of seemed to good to be true that her visions were perfect.

2. How long do you think it took ALice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?

It probably didnt take Alice very long to figure it out. Bella tried to cloak her decision. Edward was probably a little mad, and a really worried.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?

They thought she was crazy. yes because less things were possible in her time. (yes, i know bad answer.)

4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?

he was very artistic and creative. i dont know..i cant really answer this question well.
"Tell me what you want, and you can have it."
"You," I mumbled almost incoherently.
"I'm yours."

Answer: All I thought was "Shoot! More complications!"

2. How long to you think it took Alice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?
Answer: This is how I think it went (get ready, this is going to be long). Jasper waits 5 minuets. He then starts to get suspicious. He opens the bathroom door a crack and calls in "Bella, are you there?" No reply. So he runs over to Alice (not vampire fast, that would attract attention) and asks her to go in and check on her. Alice goes in, smells Bella's trail and follow's it to the elevators. She goes back to Jasper and tells him that Bella is gone. Jasper tells Alice to stay and wait for Edward and Carlisle while he follows Bella's trail. So Alice stays and Jasper goes. Jasper reaches the end of her trail and thinks that James got her. He runs back to Alice just as Edward arrives. Alice and Jasper tell him. Edward explodes (not literally) and runs to the end of Bella's trail and calls out "BELLAAAAAAA!" Alice reminds him of her vision, they steal a car and get to the Ballet studio as fast as they can (which is really fast, of course). Then you know the rest.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?
Answer: It makes me think that Alice's parents were horrible, that they cared more about social life and how people thought of them then their own daughter!

4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?
Answer: I just think he wanted to make Edward mad (that's an understatement) so he could keep playing the game. And I really don't care about James past.

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT ALICE COULD SEE EVERYTHING. YES IT DID SURPRISE ME. THEY CAN CHANGE YOUR WHOLE FUTURE.

JASPER: WHEN SHE DIDN'T COME OUT OF THE BATHROOM. ALICE: WHEN JASPER DIDN'T COME BACK WITH BELLA.
IT WAS A GOOD THING THEY WERE IN THE AIRPORT WITH LOTS OF PEOPLE. IT WOULD AT LEAST HELP HIM CONTROL HIS TEMPER A LITTLE BIT. BUT I EXPECT HE WAS VERY MAD.

THEY DIDN'T LIKE THAT THERE DAUGHTER WAS DIFFERENT. NOT REALLY , IF YOUR DAUGHTER CAN SEE THE FUTURE JUST KEEP HER AWAY FROM OTHERS. BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT THE TIME THEY LIVED IN WAS VERY JUGE MENTAL.

Well, I think that as soon as Bella made up her mind Alice would have seen it, and Jasper would be able to feel the peoples anger after Bella shoved them out of the way. So Alice and Jasper find eachother, and Alice tells Jasper how she saw Bella dead in the dance studio. They wait for Edward, but he reads Alice's and Jasper's thoughts of course and knows what happens. He then asks if she'd left anything, and that's when Alice gives him the letter. He reads it, and is furious. Not mad, but just a mixture between anxiousnous, and worry, and depression from seeing Alice's vision. So they run to her rescue, all the while he's thinking of ways to kill himself. Like remember in New Moon when he said he had thought about how he would do it when he wasn't sure if Bella was going to live or die? Anyway, that's what I think... Sorry it's so long.

The fact that Alice's visions change based on the decisions of the person involved is not really surprising. It is true that nothing is really set in stone until it happens. I find it comforting to know I can change my mind about most things and not have to stay on a path that may not be right for me or someone else that would be affected.

2. How long to you think it took ALice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?

Alice probably figured out Bella had gotten away pretty quickly, but was not sure how to procede with them being in a busy airport and all. :shock: As for how Edward took it :twisted: he probably was a very frightening vampire at that moment.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?
I truly felt sorry for Alice when I learned this. True, times were different then, but I believe to many people make decisions based on what others will think about them or their family and that is not ok with me. I do not feel Alice's family was at all justified simply because that is what you did back then.


4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?

To me, this says that James must have been a man in desperate need of attention! No, really, he could have been a man who liked to do things in a big way so everyone knew it was him who did it! He likes having to use strategy and was probably a great chess player or somthing like that.

-I knew there was some kind of "downside" to it. Edward seemed to think he could change what she saw in the first place about Bella, even though he was very angry with it. I would say it means that every choice determines what comes next. Big or small, the effects are different.

2. How long to you think it took Alice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news? -I think Alice probably figured it out once she started running and got to Jasper to tell him. Ha, Edward most likely freaked. I could see him very irritated, scared, and ready to kill James, well anyone for that matter. He must have looked like a vampire.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in? -Alice's family was probably one of those religious fanatics. And seeing that Alice is very-hmm- well Alice, they probably figured she was disturbed or something. And people claiming to see the future were kind of frowned upon back then. So yeah, that's what I think.

4. James is somewhat of a performance artist, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his character or his life when he was a human?
-James was probably a very blood thirsty human. That's not what I meant. I meant he was probably one of those people who like when other people were in pain. Or he could have not been a happy person and it got worse as he changed to a vampire.

It didn't surprise me, because everthing is diffrent depending on who the person is. I don't really don't know.

2. How long to you think it took ALice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?

I bet the figured it out in the total of umm 2 seconds. I he broke stuff.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?

That they thougt the visions she was having were freakish. Yes.

4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?

That maybe he was involved in theater of something of the sorts.

Actually it did, I thought for sure her visions were concrete. The power of being able to make choices can even change fate.

2. How long to you think it took ALice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?
About 10 minutes and I have an idea that Edward was livid and panicky.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?
I don't think it was justified at all but some people regardless of the times are afraid of individuality.

4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?
He's a sadist for certain.

2. How long to you think it took Alice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?

It probably took less than five minutes. They couldn't go after her because they were waiting for Edward and crew. Edward was probably just beside himself and scared to death. He was most likely panicking because he knew what James would do to her.

3. We learned that Alice was once a resident in a mental institution. What does this say about Alice's human family? Do you think they were justified because of the times they lived in?

Alice's family probably thought she was a freak. They sent her to a mental institution because they thought she was crazy.

4. James is somewhat of a performance artisit, using the mirrors to create a very effective death for Bella. What does this say about his charater or his life when he was a human?

He was a very sadistic person. He likes seeing people suffer. He could have been a very sadistic serial killer.

No it didn't surprise me.

2. How long to you think it took ALice and Jasper to figure out where Bella had gone? And how do you imagine Edward took the news?
probably in a minute or so. And he probably found out the moment Jasper or Alice thought about it.

Her family thought she was different so they sent her there.

He likes to see people suffer.
