1. There are four conflicts in this chapter: Bella's internal conflict, Jacob's internal conflict, the conflict between Bella and Jacob and the conflict between Jacob and Alice. How are these conflicts resolved? How are they left unresolved?

I don't know how to answer that.

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?
I think that she was relieved that it wasn't Jake killing the people. She was really worried about that. And I think that Jake was happy that she accepted him - that she didn't hold a grudge on him for being a werewolf.

3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others' thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form. Since the pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?
I think that feels like you have no privacy. It would be really unnerving. Your pack mates would know everything that you did and everything that you were ashamed of or angry about. And that could probably cause some tension between pack mates. I don't envy Jacob in that scenario. It was probably pretty painful.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
I think it's a mental pain. Perhaps it's like what Jane can do? I'm not sure.

Hmm... this question kind of confuses me... There are many conflicts...

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?
Nervousness, anger, misunderstanding, and confusion turn to relief, happiness, and still a little confusion and then turn into tense-ness and betrayal. Right?

3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others' thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form. Since the pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?
I, personally, wouldn't like it. I think most of the pack members would agree with me, but it does have some plus sides. For example, they way Jacob uses it in this scene- communication. And it also forms a strong bond between the pack.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
When you think of pain, most people might suddenly jump to think bruises, blood, and fists. But there are worse things than physical pain. For example: mental and emotional pain. I think Jacob was experiencing a lot of both of those pains. You don't think mental/emotional pain is capable of being "the most horrible, terrifying thing [Jacob's] been through"? First, let's take a peek into Bella's mind, as we already do in New Moon. Edward leaves *shudder*. He didn't touch her, but he leaves her feeling like she's been hit by a train- worse even than that. Do I need to recall the Infamous Months Pages? *shudder- I hope not.* Not until the end of the book is Bella "whole" again, but she still feels insecure and scared the Edward might leave *shudder* again. Now let's rewind and take a peek into Jake's head. He walks in, hears that he looks funny, and then BOOM!- he almost killed his dad right on the spot. He sees- or senses or whatever- himself and knows that he is not normal. He's different. He's strange. He will never belong with the normal people again. And who's the number one "normal" person he knows? Bella. Bella=Normal. Jacob=Not Normal. Normal+Not Normal= Catastrophe. But then Jacob might think, "She hangs out with the bloodsuckers, though"- hmm... I don't like using that word...- "They're not normal... so maybe I have a chance..." But then he hears Sam's thoughts. He saw what happened when he got to close to Emily. Jacob can't stand to think that he could hurt- or maybe even kill- Bella. He'll never be able to see her again. He doesn't want to hurt her. But by not hurting her, he's hurting her. If he leaves, he'll leave Bella just as-what Jacob might say- "that filthy bloodsucker" did. Hmmm... really don't like saying the "B" Word. He can never be with Bella again. And he knew it. That is what, I think, Jacob means when he says "the most horrible, the most terrifying thing [he's] ever been through."


woo! that was long! haha

Really, I don't think any of these conflicts were solved. They were all mostly worse by the end of the chapter.

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?

There is a lot of confusion. They are both angry at first when they are misunderstanding each other. But of course, that gets better when they start to figure it out. They get more comfortable with each other, which I think is because the whole truth is out now.

3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others' thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form. Since the pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?

Its probably super embarassing.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?

Because it means accepting a life long sentence. He'd have to take a really good look at who he is and what he wanted from his and life and surrender it all.

I dont remember. its a hard question. i think they are left unresolved.

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?

They like each other. haha. and then..well i dont know.

I think its kind of embarassing or invading of privacy for them.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?

His mental state was intruded and he feels stressed?
"Tell me what you want, and you can have it."
"You," I mumbled almost incoherently.
"I'm yours."

Did I miss something?

I could tell the confusion, but I loved the relief that seeped throughout the chapter as the truth was told.

One word: AWKWARD.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?

Emotionally and mentally. All of a sudden, he is this monster, has no idea what's going on, and then begins to hear voices in his head. He probably thought he was crazy.

There's a lot of confusion. They are angry and misunerstaning one another. But then they become comfortable with each other.

Because he has to accept it for life.

What?

Theres was confusion i could see that much.

I felt really bad for them, and i am pretty sure it was embarassing to them.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
I guess i really don't know the answer to that.

Bella is torn between her best friend and her true love. She wants to be honest with Jacob, but at the same time does not want to betray Edward. She basically decides that she cannot hurt Edward by telling Jacob anything because Edward is gone and not coming back.

Jacob really loves Bella and does not know how to help her get over Edward. He is in a position now that he could literally kill Edward if he ever saw him again. He would never do that because it would hurt Bella too much. He decides to do his best to still be there for Bella and try to break through the hold Edward has over her.

Bella and Jacob have to come to an understanding between the two of them. They both love each other. Just not quite the same way. I think in this chapter that is still up in the air on being resolved.



2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?
Poor Bella is so confused. She just found out her best friend is a werewolf. She doesn't want to loose his friendship, but at the same time she feels like he is a monster because she thinks his pack is the one murdering everyone. Talking wit Jacob she learns they are trying to protect everyone and she is relieved.


3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others' thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form. Since the pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?
I think that would be hard. Any problems they have ever had with other pack members would be open game.


4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
I'm sure it is painful emotionally. I bet you get flooded all at once with all the thoughts of the other pack members. Not only that, but you are changing physically and you have no clue what is going on because no one has prepared you at all.

Bella is in too deep, she knows that she will never love anyone the way she loves Edward, but she also knows she loves Jacob. This will always nag at her but I think she knows beyond a doubt that the love she has for Edward will cancel everything out if given a chance.
Jacob knows he loves Bella completely, and he's aware that she is still in love with Edward, he also knows that he is slightly dangerous to Bella, this becomes even more apparent with Paul's reaction.

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do those emotions change?
They are both scared, and for very different reasons. Bella is afraid that Jacob is a murderous monster, the fact he's a werewolf isn't the issue, even though I think she finds it a little intimidating. Jacob is afraid of Bella's reaction he doesn't want to be rejected by her because he loves her.
I think it becomes obvious just how dangerous the wolves are when she meets with the pack for the first time. Especially with Paul his quick temper is a liability.

3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share their thoughts. When there are in wolf form.

Tortuous, it would be like announcing your deepest darkest secrets to people you still weren't sure about, but I'm also sure that it would eventually bring them closer together because they would have a deeper understanding of one another.

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?
It must have been terrifying, could you even imagine having to go through that? all of a sudden rage takes control of you and you get the sensation of exploding with out the pain, you would think you'd lost your mind, not to mention looking down and seeing paws it would probably be enough to drive someone insane.

I think Bella finds it hard to choose between Edward ( Her true love ) and Jake ( Her best friend ) , the four conflicts aren't resolved though , the problems are still there!

2. Jacob told Bella she could call him if she doesn't want to see him again. Bella considers this option, but chooses to go to La Push for a face-to-face conversation. What emotions are they feeling throughout this chapter and how do these emotions change?


There was alot of confusion between Jake and Bella , the truth came out and it was all resolved!

3. We learn that Jacob and the other werewolves can hear each others thoughts regardless of whether or not they want to share there thoughts. When there in werewolf form. Since then pack members don't choose each other, some of them haven't been close, yet now they are sharing thoughts. How do you think that feels for Jacob and the other wolves?

Awkward! I actually really felt sorry for the pack , somethings aren't meant to be shared with others .

4. Jacob tells us that the change was the most horrible, terrifying thing he's ever been through. Since Stephenie has told us in the personal correspondence that the pain is not physical, why do you think Jacob describes the change in this way?

It's not physical pain that he went through , it was emotional/mental pain . Seriously , imagine one day waking up to find out that your a werewolf and you're not going to get older . Thats hectic stuff!
