1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified? yes, I think that they are. I know if I ever had a daughter and her boyfriend [in charlies eyes] 'left her' then I would most likely react the same way.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship? No relationship to disapprove of. :)]

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella. I feel that Jacob's message to Bella was slightly confusing yet sad.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push? Not really. It shows that he cares a lot about Bella

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
yes, of course! :D

1) Yes, if I was Charlie I would feel the same. Edward hurt his little girl, so he is mad at him for doing that.

2) No

3) He misses her, he couldn't make up his mind on how to respond to the treaty.

4) No, he knows the werewolfs are dangerous and he wants to keep Bella safe. he also doesn't want the same thing that happened to Emily to happen to Bella

5) No

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
I don't think that they are, well from my point of view. but if i was a mother then i wouldn't want my daughter dating a guy who practically turned her into a zombie for leaving afraid that he would leave her again.
2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
yes but it was a friendship
3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
It made me sad because i just wanted them to be friends again
4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
I get where he's coming from but i think he's a little over protective at some points
5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
Not that i know of but my mom and her friends do all the time. Sometimes she'll know things before i do which is sad
"It's the safest time of day for us," he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. "The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don't you think?" He smiled wistfully. " I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

1. Absolutely. Although WE may know the reasons as to why Edward left, Charlie doesn't. In his mind, he just sees Edward as this kid that dumped his daughter, left her broken, and then charms her right back into his arms when he comeAs back. If I were Charlie, I'd be pissed too!

2. No, I've never had a parent disapprove. My relationship choices tend to be rather good in my opinion.

3. I thought Jacob was being very calculating sending Bella the note with all of the sentences crossed out. Something tells me he did that with a purpose... I mean, he could've just rewrote what he wrote on another piece of paper! Anyways, I thought he was being very immature about the whole situation, but that's for another discussion.

4. Actually, I thought he was very reasonable. I'm not Team Jacob or anything, but I don't dislike him like other people do. So although I thought Jacob could've handled his temper around Bella, I wasn't sure the other werewolves (mainly Paul) could've done the same. Edward was right in bringing up Emily.

5. No my dad doesn't, but my mom sure does!

1] I think they are. If I was Charlie and someone did that to Bella, I'd be pretty mad. We were mad right? (Well some Jacob lovers probably were happy)

2] Lol..Like Holly, no relationships to approve or disapprove of.

3] It made me feel bad for him. They used to be inseperable, and now they can't see eachother.

4] Well , I can see his side but he's a little over protective..

5] My dad died 3 years ago.. :(

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
If I were in Charlie's position, I would treat Edward exactly the way he does. I would be a little disappointed that my daughter put so much faith in a boy when she was only 17, but Edward just leaving out of the blue was downright cold!

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
I'm pretty sure my parents haven't liked any of my relationships, but they don't say anything about it. As long as I don't start acting out, they're fine.

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
Same as Charlie, I don't blame him. I don't particularly know how I'd be friends with an enemy, but I do wish Jacob would be a bit more openminded, as should Edward.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Completely. I understand that he feels like Bella shouldn't be around a werewolf, an immature one at that, but Edward has to realize that he really isn't the most safe person to be around, either.

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
Haha! Can't say that he does! To be quite honest, my dad doesn't have any friends.

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
Certainly not. I found myself wanting to fuss at Charlie throughout this chapter because of how rudely he treated Edward. Surely if things had been explained better, Charlie wouldn't be treating Edward in such an awful manner. But there again, Charlie's life would be in greater danger, and the risk of him knowing too much might outweigh the chances of his survival...according to the Volturi. =/

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
I cannot honestly answer this question because I've not been in an official relationship. I haven't found my Edward yet.
But I have had my over protective and eccentric mother give me earfuls of what she has thought about guys who have come along, trying to "win" my heart. I tell my mother everything (pretty much) as she's like my best friend. I'm sure I'll get another Renée-type response from her if I ever find the right guy.
But by then, hopefully he'll be a keeper, so there won't be much to worry about. :oops:

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacob's message to Bella.
I couldn't form coherent thoughts the first time I read Jacob's letter to Bella. I was at the Eclipse Prom, reading the piece of notebook paper with Jacob's letter printed on it, my hands trembling and tears welling in my eyes.
The second or third time I read through it though, I wanted to confront the boy myself and non-too-gently beat some sense over his head. All that prejudice was ridiculous! Edward is Edward, Jacob is Jacob! Why all the vampire vs werewolf nonsense???

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Umm...not completely. I mean, I understood his worry, especially since he and Bella returned from their nightmare in Italy. It's only natural that he would be a thousand times more protective of her. But I also do believe that his prejudice was equally ridiculous as Jacob's.
(*shakes head*) Boys...

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
My relationship with my father is about as close as Bella's is with Charlie. My dad lives in a different state, and I see him maybe once or twice per year because of his job, and the fact that my parents are divorced.
He's all buisness when it comes to me though. He's never shown much interest in my social life, as much as he's been focused on my academic life. As long as I do well in school, he's happy.

1. If a boy had just left my gurl and then i saw the state she was in for all these days i would act just the same as charlie did i guess.. his reactions to edward coming bac justified

2.Not really i dot think my parets have dissaproved any realationships i've had

3.well i think that jacobs messages and reactions to edward coming bac are okay but he and edward should rlly try to to be more accepting of the fact that bella has a realtionship with their enemies.

4.I think that edward is being unreasonable because he should accept the fact that bella feels safe with jacob even though he is a warewolf same as her being okay with edward as a vampire.

5. I dont rlly think so ??

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
I think so, yeah. Since Charlie can't know how many times Edward's saved Bella's life (because it all has to do with a species he doesn't know exists), he still thinks the whole Edward/Bella thing is just a fling. He's mad that Edward hurt his little girl once already and doesn't really trust him. I know my dad would do the same thing, but still, it does get on my nerves...

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
Haha... well... about that... *cough cough*...

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
I thought it was a sweet idea, but really sad in the way he did it. Poor kid can't even mail a letter to her by himself, or even write a letter without having to cross things out every line. Just made me feel sorry for him.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Well he was smart in not believing the werewolves can keep themselves control (*cough* paul *cough*), but the fact he didn't want Bella to be with Jacob just because he didn't like Jacob was definitely unfair.

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
OOOHHH YEAH!
