Twilight: Chapter 8 ~ My Thoughts

Post by DreamerTacy »

At what point were you worried for Bella's safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?

I'm pretty sure I got a bad feeling about them from the beginning. I'm actually kind of a paranoid person at times, so the entire time she thought she was being followed I was like "run!!! holy crap, run!!!" Of course my deepest little school girl wish was Edward showing up to save the day. Lucky for my fantasizing heart, he did!

How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

He seemed really intense about it, probably the first time I really thought that he was in deeper than he was letting anyone know.

Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

Yes I had guessed. My ultimate fantasy "power" i always wanted to posses if I was an elf/sith/jedi/dragonrider/x-men/superhero/vampire would be mind reading and controlling things with my mind. I tend to look for signs of that naturally. However, gauging from Edwards' previous behaviour I can come up with two ways I thought he would answer Bella. #1 He would brush it off, play dumb, and continue to make her think she was imagining things (obviously he didn't choose this one). Or #2, he was so tired of holding everything in and pretending all the time. He had finally found someone who seemed different and special and worth every punishment he was going to get, and she knew anyway!! No harm done... haha.

What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind. If you have read New Moon, don't attempt to answer this.

Actually I have read New Moon, but I don't think my thoughts are answered there. I actually think there is something special about Bella. Like Edward and Alice and Jasper have thier "talents". I think Bella has some sort of special something about her. I hope she becomes a vampire so it will be intensified.

Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

I actually saw it as something he "needs" to do. When I first read the book I was like "wait... he said protecting her is something he 'has' to do. Does that mean someone ordered him to watch over her?" But when I read it through a second time I understood better that it was something he had to do in order to survive. He couldn't imagine existing in a world without Bella. And that right there pushes it over the line as incredibly attractive and romantic. Not at all stalkerish. I'm thankful he was watching over her, what could have happened without him I can't even imagine.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

some say the world will end in fire some say in ice, but from what i've tasted of desire i hold with those who favor fire, but if it had to perish twice i think i know enough of hate, to say ice is great & would suffice.

I got freaked out when she realized that the thugs had cornered her. I was hoping someone would show up, but I didn't expect it would be Edward.
2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
At first, I was like "Woah dude, calm down", but you can see why he would be angry. Creepy thugs trying to do who knows what to the girl you like? Yeah, I don't blame him for being angry.
3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
I was suprised that Edward told Bella so quickly. And no, I had no idea this was coming. I knew something was up, but I didn't think about the fact that he could maybe read minds.
4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
Well, I've read New Moon, so...
5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
Seeing as Bella is prone to danger, I think that it is a good thing that Edward followed her, or else who knows what would have happened? I thought it was sweet that he was trying to keep her safe.

I was nervous for her the second she saw them. Oh my goodness, especially with the line, "I was being herded." I seriously like screamed bloody murder at that point. That line is just so intense. Anywho, I didn't think Edward would show up. Obviously I hoped he would, and when she saw the silver Volvo earlier, it kind of made me hope even more.

2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

I wasn't afraid of him at all. And I wasn't worried for Bella. I'm a lot like Bella when it comes to Edward, I automatically knew she was safe with him.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?


I don't think I had guessed this was his secret. But I was surprised about how open he was all of a sudden.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind. If you have read New Moon, don't attempt to answer this.
Ok =)

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

I didn't think it was stalker-ish, and I didn't brush it off. Sometimes you just can't help yourself from watching a person, or caring about them in an intense way. I've had a somewhat similar kind of experience.

1.At what point were you worried for Bella's safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
-no. I thought maybe they were other vampires and they didn't like that Edward was so effected by her. I kind of imagined them like a thug version of the Volturi.

2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
-I thought it was wonderfully sweet and sexy. He was obviously very protective of her.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
-Yes, I was surprised that Edward told the truth about everything so willingly. But if you think about it there's nothing else he can do. She knows what she saw, there was no convincing her otherwise so, why bother?

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind. If you have read New Moon, don't attempt to answer this.
Ok

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
-Neither, he cares about her. That's all there is to it.

I think it was evident she was in trouble the second she turned around and saw the two guys behind her. I'm not sure I knew that Edward would swoop on in and rescue her but I certainly hoped he would. I found that when I realized the two guys were behind her my heart sped up because I knew the reality of the situation and I knew that there was a chance he wouldn't have a clue.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
Afraid never really happened for me, I think it just proved he cared deeply enough about her that he would get furious about the situation. I think (his revelation in confessions) that he couldn't find her for a while so he panicked and this only fueled his anger more because I think he partially blamed himself. I don't think Bella was in any danger either. He was angry but not at her, every action he took was to protect her and to keep himself away from the thugs.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
Not really because i thought that all of the cryptic comments to Bella was him hoping she would discover something. I think he was fighting with an inner conflict, he wanted her to know, so he could be himself, but he also didn't because he knew that if Bella knew the truth there would always be danger for her.
I think when she finally knew the truth he was a little relieved but I was certain he hadn't expected her to be a blasé about it either, I think it probably caught him off guard.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
**I've Read New Moon**

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
Good Question!! I think that after their initial interaction the previous week (Lunch) he truly just wanted to protect her, it was evident that he knew she was trouble, because he kept warning her to be careful. I think it was obvious he was different so my first thought was he was protecting her and I never really saw anything sinister in his actions, but I think this was because I didn't want to.

I think I knew that Edward would arrive as soon as she said she saw the volvo.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?

I knew he wouldn't hurt Bella. But I was thinking that he would at least run over the thugs!

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?

I wasn't entirely surprised because I knew that he would tell Bella everything there and then because he'd have to explain how he found her.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.

I've read New Moon.

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?

I didn't think he was a stalker at all.
I got confused when I read your question.
Who thought that Edward was a stalker?!

Those violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder

I was only the hint bit worried for bella, yet right when it said she saw the silver volvo i had that feeling edward as neer!

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I accually thought it was very flatering and sweet he cared that much! yet he did scare me i little that he would kill those guys

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
Yes i did because he seemed so quite and timid to spill anything, yet he must've known bella was on his case and knew so at the same time no. And no i hadn't guess, it was a complete shocker!

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
I just knew from Stepehenie Meyer that she was born with it but i sort of agree with Bree that mabey she could have something in her thats inhuman...........who knows???

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
No not at all, i mean mabey at times i was thinkin "What are you doing edward? cant you just accept she will be ok?" but on the other hand she probably wont. I never thought he was a stalker, hes too sweet and caring and not creepy! :P :roll: :wink:

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
I actually was nervous for her as soon as she ran into them, living in a city myself, i know how pererted grimy men can be. I had no idea edward would show up, it hadn't even really crossed my mind, but im glad that he did!

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I wasn't really afraid of his reaction, i just remember being a little perplexed, but for some reason... i also understood how he felt in a way. I wasn't, however, worried for bella.

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
I was very surprised that he told the truth about his secret. I thought it would have taken a bit more of a fight from bella actually. I had been suspecting it was one of his secrets... but never truly made an assumption.

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
Won't be answering...

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
It didn't concern me. In a strange way i found it to be kind of flattering, and also i thought of it in a guardian angel sense.

1. At what point were you worried for Bella?s safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
A: Only with the thugs... but I had hoped (and was happy) that Edward appeared.

2. How did you feel about Edward?s emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
A: No, I was'nt worried...for Bella. I actually wished he would have killed those guys... Its very easy to discern what they were thinking :evil:

3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
A: Yes, I was surprised, but only that he shared it so soon. To me it seemed soon anyways... I kind of figured thats what he was doing, speacially after the tyler incident in the parkiing lot (Tyler asking bella to the dance...)

4. What is your personal theory as to why Edward can?t hear Bella?s mind. If you have read New Moon, don?t attempt to answer this.
A: Ummm, My thoughts were that maybe she was 'destined' to be his girl, so she was destined to be unique, therefore he can't hear only her mind? if that makes sense lol...

5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
A: It did'nt concern me... it made me swoon and wish that I was her lol...((*thinks for a moment* Wait, I dooo have that in my real boyfriend...*smiles*))
SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST!!! Don't know what the deal is.... Grrr
