1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?


I pretty much figured out when she did! lol! :D



4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?


I think i had expected them to be closer, but I wasn't really "surprised."

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?


At first I was like "Uh-oh!" And Edward's reaction kind of freaked me out! (as well as Jasper's! lol!) And I was kind of mad at Edward for a second, because if he didn't push her down it wouldn't have been near as bad! But, i understand that he was protecting her (which is incredibly sweet) so I forgave him! :D


6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?


No, I thought she might not really see Jasper anymore, but I don't think it would make a difference in the same house??


7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?


I wouldn't have been surprised! :D



8) What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?


Yes!

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?

I guess I am slow because it really didn't hit me until it hit her.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?

No, probably not, Eclipse pretty much took care of that worry for me

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?

No, I just figured he was on his way to come get her for school.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?

I really didn't think much about Jasper, he was such a minor character (kind of) to me in Twilight, that I kept mixing him up with Emmett (I know stupid isn't it)

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?

At first, I didn't think much of it because the Cullen's (with the exception of Rosalie) like Bella so much that I figured it wouldn't be a problem and that they could hold back their vampiric nature for a tiny cut like that.
Even after she fell I didn't think anything of it really, just that she was very clumsy.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?

I really didn't think that there would be any repercussions. I knew Jasper would be angry with himself for a few day/weeks but they would/should just get over it.

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?

No, Edward knew if he did that she would be very very angry.

Cool What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

I think that Bella overreacts to everything that has to do with her being in the spotlight, she has to get over this thing, because birthdays and other things are as much for you as they are for others who want to celebrate you.

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that? 8)

I knew that Alice wouldn't do it without Edward's permission. But I do think that Edward overreacts to the slightest inkling about Bella being in any kind of danger or turning into a vampire.

I figured it out when she told you :oops: I was kind of suprised that it was suposed to be her

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?
I don't think so. Bella has some strage dreams, let me think on this one :?

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
Humf i dod'nt notice that at all :(

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?
Oh-No What now. I think i stopped breathing, i was like what now?

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?
I thought see would just have to stay away from Jasper, not all of them like she thought

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?
I wouldn't be suprisef if he did

What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

1. When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?

I did not see it coming, however I wasn't surprised. A little confused, I think. I'm slow sometimes, sigh!


2. Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?

I ... don't know. I don't think so. It states pretty clearly in the book why she had the dream, how one of her most frightening thoughts manifested itself into said dream.


3. Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?

I was and I wasn't. I was because I wanted him to be there, but I knew he wouldn't be because I knew he was going to leave. I just knew it. Maybe he was having a word with his family about them leaving, and all that time was spent helping them get packed or whatever. It made me so said though.


4. What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?

Mm, Jasper is an enigmatic character. That was heavily explained in Eclipse, and why and what Bella thought about him being in the Cullen Coven and how she thought for the most part it was for Alice, etc. I don't think Jasper is intentionally distant, but rather intentionally cautious. I love Jasper so much, I never have anything bad to say about him. Because he is so new at being a vampire, and because of his history, and because he has that thirst, that hunger in him that overpowers him more than the others, he was carefully avoiding because he cares for Bella's safety, I am sure.


5. What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?

I knew what would happen when she got the paper cut! Jasper leaning in closer to see the gift and her reaction, it was BOUND to happen!


6. What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?

No, I don't think she would have been banned from the house or something. Like I said, to an extent after all that happened and the way Edward was responding, I knew they were going to leave. And the part of me that was in denial / didn't think they would, I just figured Edward would be that much more protective of her when she was around Jasper. And I also contemplated how Alice might have reacted.


7. With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?

Nooo! He knows how she would have felt about it. I think Edward knows Bella better than she knows herself. Even if he is sometimes confused by her. His being so overprotective just overshadows that. Which is cool.


8. What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

Yes! She can be such a brat sometimes, honestly. I am just like her, this is how I know. It's very ungrateful and what not. If someone is trying to do something for you that they WANT to do, then let them. It is a gift to you, don't be a little brat and whine and moan and ughhh, Belllaaa!!! Why must you make me angrryyy sometimes!!!!


9. What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?

xD Poor Edward. Bless his heart, Bella is so persistant, but doesn't have a clue sometimes.

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?

I actually didn't know what was happening. I didn't really stop to think about it.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?

Yes. Bella hates that part about being a human - nightmares are a great tool in novels to see this about a character.

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
No, the dream was really heart wrenching for Bella. I could feel her pain and her disdain for growing old. I could feel her frustration with Edward wanting her to stay human and grow old. How deleterious it may feel. How annoyingly stubborn Edward was. I kind of don't really get why he would be so against having Bella forever- I mean I do - but one can't help but wonder.... The nightmare was just really sharp and jabbing!

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?

I didn't really think about it much. And I didn't think that Jasper would be closer to Bella - even though he was with her and Bella in the climaxing point of Twilight.

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?

All I thought was Ohhhh no. But I knew that Bella couldn't die and that everything would be ok.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?

I knew that Bella would have to stay away or that Jasper would have to go away to Alaska or something like Edward did. But I didn't think that Bella wouldn't be allowed to spend as much time in the Cullen house - how painful for Edward. And Bella.

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?

Not really. But knowing him, yes.

8) What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

Kind of. I understood her point, but she didn't need to be all cold towards Alice who was estatic about it.... she could have lightened up a little.

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?

She still wants to be a vampire - I know that much. I think Edward would have gotten a little mad that Bella was completely headstrong about the issue- but then again he was being all stubborn too. They just always butted heads in this area. I knew eventually Edward would have to let Bella change.

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?
At the same time that Bella did. :roll:

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?
I think that it might also show a little bit of her fear of Edward getting found out. But, mostly I just see it as her fear of growing old.

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
I didn't think too much of it, but I did kind of wonder. But I didn't think that there was any bad reason why he wasn't there.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?
I had expected them to be a bit closer, but I understood how Jasper just wanted to be careful.

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?
When she got her paper cut, I was just like, "Uh-oh.." And then BAM, everything happens at once. It was kind of like, you know, being on a rollar coaster. You reach the top of a hill and you're all like, "Oh-no..." And the WOOSH, everything happens at once as you rush downhill.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?
Well, I didn't even think that she wouldn't be able to go there

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?

What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?
Well, I didn't even think that she wouldn't be able to go there at all. I just thought she wouldn't be able to go over there as often. Edward leaving never even crossed my mind. When he reacted the way he did, I thought he'd go back to at least a little normal after a while, like Bella did.

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming? When Bella did.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?
No i just think it was growing too old for Edward.

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
I was surprised but im not sure why he wasn't.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?
No i wasn't entirely surprised,i kind of figured that Jasper would be like that.

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?
I was just like "Oh no..." throughout :P lol


6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?
Yeah i thought it would be like that.

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?
Yes.

What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?
Nope,its Bella after all and she didn't want a big fuss,thats okay then.

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?
Maybe she was trying to guilt-trip him into doing it?i also thought that he would feel hurt.

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming? I saw it coming, that was one of the biggest things I thought about when talking about Edward and Bella being together forever.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not? I knew it stood some significance but I didn't think it really said much.

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there? I didn't really think much of it.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip? I figured it was just because he felt safer when he stayed farther away from Bella, perhaps she is just as tempting to him as she is to Edward but he never admitted it?

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that? When she said "shoot" I didn't really think about it much but then when she said she was hit by something hard I knew something was wrong.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more? I thought it was going to be something similar to that - like she couldn't be there while Jasper was but I never imagined anything like what was about to happen.

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one? No, he knew how much she didn't want one because she liked the truck.

Cool What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting? No, she's never been one to want to be in the spotlight in any way/shape/form so her not wanting a big celebration made sense.

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that? I thought that he'd see that maybe she was just trying to get a rise out of him.
"Because right now, physically, there's nothing I want more than you. More than food or water or oxygen."

Team Edward - Cause only a vampire can love you forever!
Team Bella - I want to be a monster too!

1) When did you figure out that 'Gran' was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?
I didn't figure it out until Edward came along. It was then that it clicked.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?
Yes. The mirror was a nice hint of the Camera issue before bella actually took a picture with it.

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
((Ahhh, It's all coming back to me.))
I was sort of surprised, but when I was told of the birthday I understood.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?
I just accepted it. Am I too passive of a reader? Perhaps Jasper was just hungery.

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?
I knew what was going to happen, she put so much emphasis on the fact that she cut her finger and described it so much that it was obvious.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?
I wasn't sure what would happen. U.U

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one? Yes. That was my idea. D<

Cool What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?
No. She's afraid of aging and what's the only thing that confirms aging? Birthdays. She'd rather forget she has one. Call it an old lady complex.

9) What did you think when Bella said, 'Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want' ? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that? Lol.

When Edward came up and kissed her, I was surprised.

2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?

I don't because if Edward dosen't chage her someone will

3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?

Yes, but I wasn't sure why.

4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?

I thought it was weird but okay, and yes.

5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?

I was like oh god no. It was no less then what I expected.

6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?

I thought it would be similar, like she wouldn't go around there when Jaspers there. I didn't think what was going to happen would happen.

7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?

Yeah I did.

8. What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?

No, she didn't want to be older than the 'man' she loves

9) What did you think when Bella said, "Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want"? What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?

I thought he'd see maybe she was just trying to make him mad.
