Questions by Cocoa:

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?

It is hard to say, without knowing her situation. If she wants to kill people like the Voltari do then my opinion of her is that she needs mental health care. If she loves one of the vampires different story.

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?

I feel Edward will be more comfortable around Bella, he will not feel like he needs to get away from her to keep from killing her himself. Also, I feel it will give him the confidence that he can change her himself.

3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?

I guess my view of the vampire world is that they give false security to the humans. I feel like they think it's funny and like having a cattle yard outside. (Even if they don't hunt in their own city)

4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?

Yes, I had a relationship with a friend of my best friend's cousin. He was 7 years older than me and lived in anonther country. he was visiting the United States when I met him. We wrote back and forth for years 5 to be exact. Then I went to the United Kingdom for a visit. Yes I was cautious even though we had written for all that time I was only 20 and he was 27. Yeah! I was jailbait when we met. Well come to find out he was engaged to someone because she was with child and he felt obligated. Didn't last long but by the time it broke up I had moved on.

I still think of him often!

5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want? A Shelby, Blue!

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?

Not yet! she needs to prove herself first. She has taken the firs step but not enough.

1) Gianna: I think she is a little sick in the head knowing full well what her "employers" are doing and how they survive and WANTING that...

2)Edwards breakthrough on his thirst: I think it has shown Edward just how much Bella means to him and how much he needs her to be with him... I think it will only make their future stronger.

3)Contrast from the inside to the outside: I LOVE the Cullen world of vamps... they are good, decent HOT vamps... The Volturi world is a little dark and scary... It was a little humorous that the outside world in Volterra was celebrating something that they were not so far away from...

4) Yes... my ex from high school and I reunited after I was away from college for 2 semesters... we did not have good communication (on his part) the last semester so when I got home I did not call or tell him I was home... he found out through my brother and called shocked that I had not made any contact... He reeled me back into the relationship and I kept trying to resist and finally gave in... only to be crushed a few weeks later when he ended it... I should have kept my distance... But thankfully I later met and fell in love with my best friend and we were married 12 1/2 years ago... sometimes the best gifts are ones we never expected!

5)What do I want? A shiny silver volvo :wink:

6) I absolutely forgive Rosalie... she was trying to get Edward to move on because she missed her brother... Her actions nearly cost him his life, but reunited Bella and Edward! :D
"Bella... are you sure? Did you make the right choice? I've never seen you in so much pain-"
I touched his lips. "Yes."
"I don't know... If it hurts you so much, how can it possibly be the right thing for you?"
"Edward, I know who I can't live without."
"But..."
"You don't understand... I have to be with you. It's the only way I can live."
He pulled me closer, "'I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!'"

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?

I think that she is unhappy with her human life, therefore she thinks she will find peace with the Volturi. Maybe she had a tramatic event in her life or some past experience, but overall, I think she fears the vampires. If she joins them, she won't have to fear them.

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?

Edward is always posing a threat to Bella, just by being near her. I think that he will do anything he can do to eliminate an unecessary threat, such as his thirst. He made a decision never to allow himself to be weak around her.

3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?

It made me see how different those two worlds are. And honestly, it made me think of how there could be vampires living among us that no one knows about (though it's not likely ;)).

4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?

Never happened to me, but I am very catious around one guy who has hurt me before. Though that love was no where near as strong as Bella and Edward's, and I was never received as well as Bella was by Edward.

5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want?

A black, Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, of course =)

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?


Well, yes. Her tactics and approach was definitely off, and she didn't need to tell him the way she did, before she even knew for sure. But she wanted him to come home. She didn't mean to intentionally hurt him.

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?
I was unerved by it the same way Bella was when she found out. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt, thinking that if she were changed she would not be among the Volterra Vamps however the more I thought about it the more I realized that being among those vamps was exactly the lifestyle she wanted. Perhaps she thought it would be Glamourous and would make her feel powerful. I am curious to know though, How did she find out about the Vampires in the first place?

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?
I think that Edwards breakthrough will allow Edward to not be so angry with himself for putting Bella in danger. I think it also shows him just how much he loves her if he can put that thirst behind him (when it is not in his Vampire nature to do so). I also feel that Edward now has another solid point in the fight to keep Bella a human.


3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?
Im not sure that it did alter my view of the Vampire world. yes the Voltri scare me, and I would not want to be among them, but at the same time I find the Cullens enduring and would love to be put among them. I feel that these "Good" and "Evil" worlds exsist around us already in the human form. There will always be a struggle between right and wrong good and evil, but knowing that does not change the way I feel about the "Good" aspects of the world I live in right now. and therefore I feel the same about the Vampire world.
4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?

No I never have been. Although there has most defintaly been past relationships where I have wanted to be reunited with someone.


5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want?
A red Mini Coop with the Union Jack on the top of it...or a Shiny silver Volvo... :)

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?


Yes I do. Rosalie was tired of having her family be ripped apart, especially by a human. When Alice told her of Bella she did what she thought would be the right thing to get Edward back into their lives. I don't think she thought about her actions before carrying through with them, and I don't think she went about it the right way, but I do see how she was truly sorry when she found out otherwise.

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?
Answer: I think she's a sicko.

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?
Answer: I think it's great! Now he won't have to be as careful, I think. And I don't think it will have a bad impact on their relationship. He will still love her.

3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?
Answer: It made me laugh, because the humans were celebrating the abscence of vampires when they were right there. :wink:

4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?
Answer: Not yet, but I hope I will. But the seperation was nowhere near as bad as Edward and Bella's seperation. :cry:

5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want?
Answer: A silver Vovo. :) I LOVE EDWARD!

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?
Answer: No Way! Edward's death came too close! Forgiveness is not an option! :evil:

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?

That just mostly messed up. I can see wanting to be a Cullen, but... yuck about being a human wishing your diet was human blood.

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?

More closeness and stuff. Yay!

3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?

It was like all those people partying were just like I was before reading Twilight: totally oblivious to the real vampire world.

4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?

I haven't. All my lost loves have been lost for good (gratefully).

5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want?

Hybrid Honda Civic. Not as flashy, I know, but its cute and ecofriendly.

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?

Guh. Not yet.

Thanks Cocoa. :)

1) Gianna wants to be a member of the Volturi, knowing full well what they do. What is your opinion of her?
She needs a therapist. It reminds me of how hate groups and even murderers get huge followings. It's like this idea of power somehow sucks them in and they forget their own conscience.

2) Edward has a break through with his thirst, how do you feel this will impact their future?
It's hard to answer this question knowing it's addressed in Eclipse, but I kind of figured since he was holding her so tightly even though his eyes were black that it was going to be easier from now on.

3) There was a stark contrast between the celebration outside and the reality of the nightmare, how did this impact your view of the vampire world?
It made it a lot more of a reality for me. It's easy to see the Cullens and look at it nicely, but then you realize majority of vampires are like those of the Volturi, and it's really creepy. I think it was a wake up for Bella, too.

4) Have you ever been reunited with a lost love, were your actions cautious at first?
Never been there, but I think I would be cautious because I usually am.

5) Alice wants a Porsche 911 Turbo (Yellow) What do you want?
Anything that runs is good for me (and won't need to be fixed all the time). I don't speak car and driver either. :P

6) Do you forgive Rosalie?
Yes. She didn't mean any harm, she was trying to do what was best for her family, even if she acted hastily. She's not evil or out to hurt anybody.

1) I find Gianna more scared than anything. I think because she knows whats going on, and knows what they do She is more eager to be one so she can have the benefits like they do.. It's That or Death, and I'm sure she doesn't want that.

2) Well after reading Eclipse you know this. But After Twilight when Edward had to suck Bella's blood to get the Venom out i think we knew something good was going to happen. He was going to "get over" the smell.. Not quite as well as people hope but thats because it sings to him. But honestly; While he was holding her so close even kissing her while his eyes were so black i felt it was easier for him because he thought he'd lost her. "her number was up from the moment they met" (:

3) The People outside partying have no clue about Vampires. They wear red and have fake teeth in- when in reality Vampires don't even have the sharp teeth they think they do. For me, to realize the Volturi use this as a Hunting ground is a little ironic. People outside are celebrating the absence of Vampires, then they go on a tour with a "gorgeous girl" and Leads them straight to the thing they were celebrating... Vampires. I feel the Volturi choose a right time to Feed, but at the same time.. Wrong. Eventually people are going to notice a hundred something people missing in a weeks time. Men, Women, Children even are being Killed. I figured this would be a wakeup call for Bella.

4) I could say i have, but its not where near Edward and Bella. The actions after the separation are a little cautious but i felt Bella and Edwards would be more.. Welcoming and Needed, they were both almost dead at the time anyways.

5) Honestly.. Since i was 12 I've wanted a BMW or an Audi. Right now, I honest to god Drive a BMW 125i (convertible) ... yes sadly my dad got it for me. But oh well. i love my car.

6) sure, it's not her fault honestly. Everyone Knew, and she knew Edward would want to know. If He knew maybe he would get over it and Come home. She didn't think he Actually cared as much as he does.

1. I don't know enough about her to judge her.

2. Less restraint on Edward's part.

3. I knew that it couldn't be all nice, like the Cullens, because of James.

4. Sorry, I have not been in love yet.

5. A Volvo, silver.

6. Sort of, I mean she was being selfish, but she was also thinking that Edward and Bella's love wasn't very strong and he would be better if she died.
