1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?

I think they acted the way any other teenagers would after their first date/revelations about each other. They were excited to be around each other yet afraid that the aura would be gone. I found it cute and very normal especially comparred with the night before.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?

I think he was just a bit irritated about what Bella was saying and probably even more by how Jessica was interpretting it because I'm sure her mind wasn't in the same place as Bella and Edward.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?

I always had a feeling that venom loses some of its potentancy once it hits the air and even more than if it doesn't hit the blood right away. And this just came to me, maybe at this point Edward was hoping to turn her and "keeping" her.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?

I think they balance out one another with their life with each other. Then again, we as the readers have only seen Bella's perspective. Even though we've been told what Edward was feeling at certain points we still don't see it through his eyes so i think this would be better answered after reading Midnight Sun. :wink:

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?

A gazelle or deer maybe. Right now as a human she's clumsy but if she were to become a vampire I think she would of course become graceful and beautiful but not aggressive so that's why I think she'd go for deer.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?

A: I think they both did very well all things considered. Yes Bella was both nervous and shy but who wouldn't be. Things always look so different the next day when the events are fading into fuzzy memories. Edward did seem more open which was good for both of them. It opened the door for their very open relationship. They still hide things from each other but there is a trust there as well.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?

A: Happy and Disappointed, as he said. He wants this so much but he sees how dangerous it can be and he already cares so much that to put her further in danger torments him. But to know she cares as well . . . we all like when the object of our affection returns those feelings, even if we shouldn't want it sometimes.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?

A: I'd never heard this or made the connection. But it doesn't surprise me. He already knows to be close to her is dangerous but he wants to be so he'll take what small ways he can. And had it be enough to harm her I don't think he would have allowed it but I imagine he justified it by knowing it was too small to harm and enjoying that little connection with her. Very romantic.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?

A: It's a pointless argument. I believe they really do care equally because they really would do anything for each other, no matter how hard. Bella is repelled by the idea of not being with him but if it means protecting him, she'd do it. As he would.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Were Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?

A: No clue. There's so many facets to her personality that it seems impossible to narrow down to one animal.

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?

He did seem abit more open to me. Abit more lovable as well. Bella, to me, seemed perfectly fine. She acted as I feel I would have. She tried to be calm and normal.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?

I think he's fine with it, aside from the whole her-caring-more-for-him-than-he-does-for-her thing. That obviously bothered him.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?

Actually, I didn't think of that, or even know that, until just now. I'm really surprised. I guess he might not have known, or he knew that it wasn't enough to effect her in any way.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?

It's hard to say because you don't know what he's thinking throughout the story.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?
Of these two, probably the mountain lion. Of all animals, I'm not sure. She could like deer, she could like harder things. You never know, though. That's what, hopefully, Breaking Dawn is for(!!!!)

<b>1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?</b>
I think they did surprisingly well, considering their first "date" was a little bit more revealing than the norm. Bella actually wasn't as shy or nervous as I expected her to be. I was expecting her self-doubt to flare up more and really make her question his intentions. Edward seemed far more open, as if his secret being revealed was the last chink in his armor. Though I wonder if he wasn't being so revealing in order to hopefully scare her away.

<b>2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?</b>
I think Edward feels obligated to dislike the fact that Bella is so attached to him, he knows that for her safety it is what he should want but that deep down he is very pleased with her feelings. Everyone, even vampires, wants the person they love to love them back. I think he was disappointed that she felt she loved him more that he loved her both for the reasons he name but also because it shows that his is failing in displaying the true depth of his feelings to her.

<b>3. Bella took a bit of pizza after Edward. Stephanie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bit or that he didn't react to it in any way?</b>
It doesn't really surprise me. It wasn't something I thought about as I read the chapter and knowing it now it still doesn't do much for me. It seems to me that he would likely know that such a minute amount wouldn't do her any harm. Plus he is beginning to realize how observant she is and likely realizes that any display of concern or surprise would get her curiosity going and he doesn't seem ready to talk about venom yet.

<b>4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?</b>
At this point in the book -- Bella. I feel that changes later on but right now I think it is her. Edward is still trying to fight it, to talk himself out of it, to convinces himself that love really means pushing her away. Until he fully embraces his feelings for her, to love her completely despite her human status than he can not consider his love as complete and unconditional as hers.

<b>5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Were Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?</b>
Oh'this is a tricky one. I don't see Bella going after a predator, I can see her favoring deer, or some other very populous, meek creature.

1 They both seemed comfortable, but Bella seemed a little shy and Edward seemed...happier, lighter, I can't really explain it...he was just kind of...yeah, I guess he was open.
2 I think he wanted to hear more...but I don't know, and can't stop thinking about Midnight Sun...
3 He's not really paying attention, and it's just an little bit, he might have been freaking out on the inside, like OMC OMC OMC, Calm , Edward, calm, it won't do anything to her...OR WILL IT! MWAHAHAHA! (Okay, sorry, random me...again XD)
4 I don't think that is possible to decide. Too many ways to argue the issue.
5 *twitch* it seems that most of the internet (not just on here) thinks it will be something deer related. I read a fan fiction where Bella freaked out because she drained a squirrel of blood and wanted another. I just hope I find out.

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?
Yes, Bella was a little shy - well, more so than the night before - but I think that was to be expected. She wasn't sure if the honesty they had shared last night would still be in play, and I think she was still worried about unintentionally provoking Edward's impressive temper. And yes, Edward did seem more open - joking with Bella a bit and allowing her to glimpse more facets of his secrets - but he was still cautious.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?
I think he was probably frustrated with having to listen to her words through Jessica's mind. And also, like he said, I think he was truly bothered by the fact that Bella thought she liked him more than he liked her. The way she said it hinted at the thought that she didn't think of herself as worthy of his attention, when I'm sure he felt the opposite way. Edward sees himself as a monster, and Bella as a beautiful mortal young woman with her whole life ahead of her. HE doesn't think he's worthy of HER, so he was irritated by the fact that Bella had placed him on a pedestal - out of her league.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?
No. I think the venom has to enter the bloodstream and filter throughout the body for it to have any affect. He wasn't worried about it because it wouldn't do any damage in her stomach. And I think he already had a lot on his mind, so he didn't really consider any possible repercussions.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?
That's a loaded question. I think they're both pretty even. Knowing what I know from reading the other books, both Edward and Bella have made many sacrifices for one another - hurting others and most especially hurting themselves - all in an effort to make the other happy. I think that's how love is supposed to work; you can't measure who cares more because both people should be sharing the 'weight', as it were, equally.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Were Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?
I was inclined to go with something more docile, like a deer, but I've since changed my mind. It seems that all the other members of the Cullen family prefer to hunt predators for the challenge, so I think Bella will be no different. With that in mind, instead of mountain lion, I think she will develop a liking for...bobcat. It fits her, and I read a fan fic once where the author chose that as her favorite. It worked very well.

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?
Bella was shy abd Edward was definitely more open. I think that the restaurant and conversation in the car def. "broke the ice" for them to establish their relationship.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?
Definitely frustrated as he said he didn't like hearing Bella's words in Jessica's head. Also, concerned/confused/hurt about the part where Bella says that she likes him more than she thinks he likes her.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?
That never dawned on me!!!! I am usually v. good about those little things but that never occurred to me! So, yes ... color me surprised!

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?
I think they care for each other equally. I don't think that one loves the other more ... yet they'd both claim that they cared the other one more.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?
Something smaller and easy to catch b/c she's so clumsy!

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?
I think they did as best they could being two teenagers in love. Edward seemed to be trying to impress her, and she seemed to be trying really hard to not make a fool of herself.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?

I think he was intrigued by their conversation. When Bella admitted that she felt more strongly than he I think he was both upset and elated. He now knew how she felt, which was exciting because he felt the same way. At the same time he's upset because she likes him, and he's too selfish to turn away.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?
From what I've read in her letters to the lexicon its only venom in the bloodstream that poses a threat. Her ingesting the venom isn't a problem.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?

Bella. The reason being that Edward cares for her a lot, but not enough to leave her for her own safety. Or rather, he loves her, but is too selfish to leave her for her own good. Bella on the other hand is in love with him, to the point

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?
That is a hard question to answer. Bella has no animal qualities except that she's shy and clumsy. Meerkats? Yeah... that's all I've got. But she lives in Northern US. So... chipmunks? LOLS, like a Totinos Pizza Roll, or a Bagel Bite!

1. How do you think Edward and Bella both did in trying to behave naturally around each other on the "morning after?" Was Bella too nervous or shy? Did Edward seem more open?

Obviously Bella was a little shy and Edward was more open but thats it.

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?

I think he was mostly amused but a little upset that Bella thought she loved him more than he loved her.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?

1. Everyones eyes were on them so he couldn't really react.
2. Maybe he knew it wouldn't hurt her so it didn't bother him.
3. Maybe, in some strange way, he kind of wanted a part of him to be in Bella.


4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?

They care for eachother the same amount (a lot) just show it in different ways.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?

I think maybe a deer or something like that. However, I had this idea that because Edward likes lions, maybe Bella will like lambs (and sheep). I got that idea from the line :

"So the lion fell in love with the lamb" etc...

I have know idea...I think Bella was shy, but not overly so. Edward did seem more open, and it was nice

2. How do you think Edward really felt about Bella's conversation with Jessica?
I'm not sure...pleased but frustrated because he couldn't get into Bella's mind.

3. Bella took a bite of pizza after Edward. Stephenie has told us that in that moment, Bella consumed a very small amount of venom. Does it surprise you that Edward didn't stop her from taking a bite or that he didn't react to it in any way?
No it doesn't surprise me that Edward didn't stop her. I think that such a small bit of venom wouldn't have hurt her. It probably wasn't even a blip on the radar for him to think about it.

4. They argue about who cares for whom more all throughout lunch. In your opinion, which one really does care for the other more?
I'm not sure...you can tell they both care deeply for each other, so it's hard to choose.

5. Emmett prefers bears, Edward prefers mountain lions. Where Bella ever to become a vampire, what animal do you think she would prefer?
A penguin?? Ha, I don't know. Maybe a bunny or something?
