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

I had a feeling they would both be okay.

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

Emily was hostile to Bella at first, but somehow it came off in a nice way... I'm not sure how to discribe it... motherly? I have a feeling that if Emily has any siblings she would be the oldest. I would be very shocked if she was the youngest in her family.

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 wasn't worried about them fighting a vampire. I was dissapointed in Bella a bit for not trusting that the pack could take on Victoria.

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

I was glad they were friends again. I didn't want the two of them to be kept apart.

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?

Yikes. That was disconcerting. But if Edward was hunting humans when he met Bella, wouldn't he have attacked her in a heartbeat?

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
Worried, i actually thought they might hurt each other, but then in the car when the other guys were making bets and saying that he gets to hop now, i understood that it was nothing serious.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I liked her. I didn't really think they would be BFF's but i figured they would get along.

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 thought it was interesting, and i wasn't worried about them fighting vampires, why would i be worried?

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I could tell that they were both becoming confortable with each other.

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?
She thinks that now because she knows the kind of person he really is, but i don't think she would have thought that way if that how she met him.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
I thought it was cool. I like the way she showed how your emotions controls your phasing as much as anything else.


2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I liked her. I thought they would get along because she would empathize with her regarding true love.

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?
They seemed to make sense. Those abilities would be needed in order to fight a vampire with any hope of surviving. I was not worried about them fighting a vamp (as long as it was not a Cullen)

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I didn't want it to go beyond friendship. I just had a feeling in my head that Edward would be back and when that happened, Jacob would be completely crushed. Edward and Bella's love is a force that will over power everything else.

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?
The love that they share is one that overlooks all flaws. There is no way to describe what you will forgive for that kind of love.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
Shock, it was a scary moment and pretty cool to boot. I like that Jacob changed mid jump I think it shows his abilities. Paul is quick tempered and his reaction to Bella was unjustified.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
As soon as the You must be the vampire girl, you must be the wolf girl comments were thrown out there I immediately like Emily, she seemed genuine. I think that her appearance was a little shocking but necessary to emphasize that the wolves could be dangerous. The two of them immediately seemed to appreciate what the other had gone through, they had a kinship that needed no further explanation.

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 think it was evident when Jacob explained about Laurent that they could take care of themselves. I like that they had enhanced abilities it made them seem all the more unbreakable. It made them stronger, which made me worry less about them it was a statement to them being what they were.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
Although I knew Bella only thought of Jacob as a friend I was worried that she was digging a hole she wouldn't be able to climb out of, she depended too much on him already, and now that he was able to protect her from Victoria it made her need him all that much more. I knew (and hoped) that she would never love Jacob more that she loved Edward I was afraid that her resolve to not give in to Jacob would be softened and it scared me. I like Jacob but I want Bella to be with Edward, even if she has to wait for him. I think I always knew that Edward would reappear, I also always knew he loved Bella, so although she didn't know it, being on the outside looking in you don't want her to do anything that would jeopardize Edward's return.

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?
She loves Edward more deeply than we can fathom, the fact that she looked inside herself and realized that even if he was a monster she would love him, makes it that much more obvious. She wasn't as forgiving with Jacob.

1.What was your reaction to jacob and paul fighting as wolves?

i thoght that it was kind of funny.i mean its like a little fight among little kids.i mean they say things and then they chase each other trying to catch and hit them.i mean.thts what i thought.

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

i immediatly saw emily as an older version of myself.she was loving and caring and i thought that her nd bella would get along great.

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?

i could see why the vampires would be enemys of the werewoves.they were almost as sturdy as they were and that the healing just made them even a bigger threat.i thought that it evened out the playing field.

4.How did you feel about jacob and bella's relationship at this point?

i already knew that jacob would fall for her and that she,in turn,would fall for him too.i mean the guy had patched her up and was now her protector.he was gaurding her from her worst enemy at the time.i kind of figured that jake would be her man if edward didnt come back.

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 knew that she loved him but that showed me how much she actually did.i mean if she was able to love him even if he was a killer.....wow.thats just deep.i mean to be that open and caring for someone.....it just seems like a dream.

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

I thought it was really fascinating and scary at the same time. because i can't believe paul flipped out like that just because jacob brought bella.. but i knew jacob would win anyway and he would never let anyone hurt bella.

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

I felt really bad for emily but she seemed like a great person i just couldn't believe all that had happened just once when sam lost control. i did instantly like her she just seemed like such a care free person. yeah i new her and bella would get along.


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 thought it was really neat i didn't know werewolves could hear each others thoughts but i knew they healed quickly. yeah i was worried about them when they helped fight the vampires because they were still knew to being werewolves and everything so i thought they were a little to sock about winning..

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

i really truly hated it because i like bella and jacob as just friends.. i like edward and bella way better together and i just don't see jacob and bella ever being together.. and plus jacob was tearing bella to shreds about her emotions.. because she was torn between edward and jacob.. i

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 didn't think it was wrong because she loves edward for who he is not for what he does... because if that was the case why would she be dating him in the first place... Hes a VAMPIRE...
""Softly he brushed my cheek, then held my face between his marble hands. 'Be very still,' he whispered, as if I wasn't already frozen. Slowly, never moving his eyes from mine, he leaned toward me. Then abruptly, but very gently, he rested his cold cheek against the hollow at the base of my throat.""

when you find love and that love is SO wrong for you or for someone else you don't care (if it's 100% true love) you just love (yes this is first hand experience!!)

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

A: Heh, I kept going NO NO NO!!! Back of Jake! ;)

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: When love is unconditional, it means exactly that. Without condition. Meaning no matter what that person says, does thinks, or anything, they will still be loved. You may not like what they do and you may not be able to be with them but you still love and care for them. Truly unconditional love is a rare thing indeed.

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

A bit shocked at first, but seriously it was pretty freaking awesome. And the fact that they don't really "injure" each other because they heal so quickly just makes it more cool. :)

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

My feelings towards her were fairly neutral but I did think that her and Bella would get along. The more and more I read about her I started to like her more though especially with how much she cares for the entire pack.

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 thought that it was amazing especially with the quick healing. It must come in extremely handy and you wouldn't really have to worry about injuries ever again. After seeing what happened between Paul and Jake and how quickly they heal and how that it's their natural instinct to take down vampires, I wasn't really worried at all about them fighting a vampire.

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

Bella is definitely falling for Jake more and more at this point. And I'm not sure if it was at the end of this chapter or if it were another chapter but Bella refers to herself along with Emily saying "we're both wolf girls now" or something along those lines. So her attachment and attraction to Jacob just keeps getting stronger.

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?

Well it showed that she does love him unconditionally but that's only because she would fall in love with him then would find out. But I don't think she covered the fact that if she knew he was a killer before she fell in love with him. That would have me more concerned.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.
