1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

Paul is an idiot, and like one of those mean boys that drops a spider down your back just to freak you out when you're twelve. Either that or he's a sadist. He deserved a good bashing from Jake. But it seemed a lot like one of those stupid wrestling mock battles that boys get into for whatever reason, so I wasn't worried.
2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

I didn't actually instantly like Emily. I'm rather indifferent to her still. Just the "vampire-girl" comment rubbed me the wrong way. Bella is visably upset and pretty vulnerable at the moment, and it seemed like Emily was trying to scare her more.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

Naw, I wasn't worried. I figured that werewolves were pretty hardcore from the first mention. Accelerated healing is something most mythological creatures seem to have. And if they're enemies of the vampire, they'd have to have quick reflexes, right?4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

I felt good about Jake keeping his promise-it went a long way for me in his character. His protectivness of Bella too. It seems for some reason more like he and Bella are on an even playing field, relationship-wise, unlike when she was with Edward and he always seemed to have the upper-hand.
Jake's such a nice boy. Wolf. Whatever. :wink:


5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

I think she may be a bit stupid about that. But Bella is always irrational about love. I don't truly believe that she would stay with Edward if he was a murderer, though I believe she would still love him.

Wow, how many bash-worthy answers was that?

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

Haha...didn't see that one coming! I thought that they maybe would not fight with each other, but I suppose that when they get mad enough...they could go at each other!

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

I did like Emily. I knew that if Edward and Bella didn't end up with each other (AH! What am I saying!!) that she might end up with Jacob and Emily would be a very good friend for her.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

I was kind of worried about them fighting a vampire. If there reflexes are that good, then they could catch a vampire (like EDWARD) very fast.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

I didn't know what was going to happen...I mean, I hoped and prayed Edward would come back, but if he didn't then Bella would probably need Jacob.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

I thought it was pretty normal. If you love someone enough, you don't care what they are.
"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars - points of light and reason...and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
I thought it was quite funny, actually. I knew that they weren't going to hurt each other badly. Just boys being boys.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
She reminded me of Esme, not by looks, but by how she loves her family so much. I thought she was ok. I don't have anything against her. I knew that she and Bella would get along--eventually.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
No I wasn't worried. I know that vampires can kick their butts any day!

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I didn't really like it. They were getting too close.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
If I was Bella, I would still love Edward even if he was killing innocent people. If it's true love, then you should except the person for who they are.
*I Love Edward Cullen!*

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

I thought it was kind of stupid and funny. Why fight when you know your going to heal or end up forgiving the person in the end. But, thats just boys.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

At first I didn't like Emily. She seemed mean to Bella. But as the chapter went along, she seemed to get nicer, so I decided I would like her. I think she and Bella would get along perfectley, even though their lovers were different "breeds" (I couldn't think of another word)

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

I was very worried about them fighting a vampire, but not for thier sake. What if that vampire was someone Bella loved? I dont think I could forgive them if they hurt a Cullen.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

I think it was at a knife point (like in the meadow chapter in twilight). After this, their relationship could go either way.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

I thought this was rational. Why decide to not love your one and true love because he made a mistake? (though if it got out of hand, I'd re-think that decision)

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

ARGH! ARGH! THEY'RE ALL going to DIE!!!

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

Yeah, they have so much in common. Is Em supposed to be a comparison to a future Bella, if she picks Jacob? (I can't believe I just said that.)

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Were you worried about them fighting a vampire?

Hell yeah! After they did away with Laurent ... I keep freaking out that one of them might *she can't even type the word* a Cullen by "accident".

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

He's always the guy we feel sorry for, isn't he? I'm glad Bella kept him at arm's length, although he was a better friend than she could have asked for. I think we all knew it wouldn't work out between them romantically, and the whole werewolf/vampire/lifelong enmity thing just drove the stake in further (no pun intended).

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

Aaaaw, c'mon, we all knew it wasn't Edward! So it's an easy thing for her to say, considering they are star-crossed lovers and this is a teen romance fic. Teehee.

I have trouble with coherence. Please bear with me.

1. The whole wolf thing ticked me off from the start, so when they started fighting, I was just like :x

2. I don't know, I didn't really like her as much as I liked some other characters. She was too... boring. I didn't think she and Bella would be friends, they were too different.

3. Aww. Crud. That's not fair.

4. I never did like Jacob... so at this point I was pretty much praying for Edward to come back.

5. If that conclusion involved her trying to get Edward to stop, that'd be great. Otherwise... no. And that's why Edward doesn't kill innocent people.

1. When Jacob and Paul started fighting I was scared for Bella, not Jacob. Because I knew Jacob wouldn't die or anything

2. I liked Emily, yes. I knew her and Bella would get along well.

3. I still am worried about them fighting Vampires! They might be faster and possibly stonger than vampires. I'm worried for the Vampires (except Victoria)

4. I was thinking Jacob needed to take a hint...

5. I wasn't surprised... who doesn't love Edward??

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

I thought it was stupid. Just one of those typical fights boys have to see who's the stronger one. Boys. *sigh*

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

I thought she was awesome. She reminded me of Esme. I really hoped she and Bella could get along. And I'm glad they did.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

Not really. I mean, a vampire might be able to kill one but I wasn't that worried.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

I was really happy with it. It made me like Jake even more. They were equals and thats how a relationship should be. With Edward, she was to smitten to stand up to him.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

Er, it was stupid? She wouldn't stay with him if he killed innocent people. She might still love him though.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
A. I was all: "YEAH!!!!! sock em jacob!!!!!! WOOT!!!!!"

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
A. I loved her...she was like an older sister kind of, and i thought bella would get along with her.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter '" accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
A. Not really, now i'm in love with vampires and am all for them...but there's a special place in my heart for werewolves and i feel that they'd have no trouble fighting a vampire...in a group.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
A. I felt that they could only be friends, but i read spoilers(gah!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!) and knew edward would be back, so that pretty much ended it for me.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
A. I think she was only slightly nuts. I would forgive him for a good reason or explanation, but if it was just for her, screw that! I have a werewolf friend to go cuddle with...
