1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
I don't think they're justified but I think they are understandable, he is trying to protect his daughter from having to go through the pain again if he decides to leave. He's just a little too rude though, I think he could hold off on the hostility just a little.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
Oh yes, and it is so awkward, I just ended up not bringing him to the house, it was easier that way.

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
it sounded like he was confused and hurt, I think he was trying to do the right thing and stay away from her, it was almost honorable in a way because he was giving her an easy out. But I can also understand where Bella is coming from, I can imagine how hard it was for her to only have the tortured look to remember him by.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
No I think he had his reasons, not only were young werewolves dangerous but he knew how Jacob thought of Bella, and he knew that when he left he had pushed Bella into this situation.

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
Yes lmao, his best friend lives in England and they are always on the phone like a pair of old biddies (sorry English term)

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?

I think Charlie's feelings Edward are totally justified. I mean if I were Charlie and had to watch my daughter be hurt more than once because of him, I probably wouldn't even allow her to see him at all anymore, even if she did insist. I would have her shipped to a faraway place immediately. However, since he is sort of new at this whole fatherhood scene, I don't think he really knows what would be a rational action to take after all that has happened, but he just simply wants Bella to be happy, but of course he cannot let go of his hostility for Edward because he knows that Edward was the source of her numbness and pain before and that he's like an unhealthy drug for really, but she's too deep in and can't let go anymore.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?

I've never been in a relationship, so my parents have nothing to disapprove of -_-'
3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.

I thought that Jacob's message to Bella was really heart-breaking. I mean I really want Bella to be with Edward, but Jacob was always there for her in New Moon and now all his chances of being with her are crushed now that Edward's back. However, I also think he is kind of stubborn for saying that things won't change, but Edward did say that too in the chapter as well so I guess it's all just because of that stupid treaty.
4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?

I don't think he was really being unreasonable because after almost losing her so many times, he does sort of have a justified reason to be concerned. I also know that it's not his fault that Werewolves and Vampires are mortal enemies, nature just made it that way. It's very complicated especially with the terms of the treaty between them.

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
I think that just like any parents Charlie is only tryig to look out for Bella and hated to see how much power Edward has over her emotions. I think the thought that things can be so black and white with her feelings with Edward scares him as a father.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
Ya i have defiantly had my parents disapprove of a relationship, but at least for me it wasn't the person it was just for a me a religious difference. I guess that's why i relate and love the series cause Bella is me and Brad( a.k.a the guy i love) is like Edward to the core and it's funny cause he is even starting to act like him with out realizing it.

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
I love the scratched out parts it added a very personal and very real feel to the story. I got to admit Jacob is not my fave out the two but Jacob is just so real and a risk taker i can't help but love it. I t really came threw in the note that no matter what he will never be able to hate Bella.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
As much as i love Edward he dose have the tendency to be over protective and this can be his down fault. I guess knowing he later lets her makes me realize that he knows this can be his down fall so he tries to be better about it.

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
I think yes, 1. He doesn't know how hardcore they are and 2. Eddie leaving pretty much put his daughter into an emotional coma, pretty sure he's justified...

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
Yea, and they were very reasonable about it..guy was an donkey anyway...

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
He's hurting, poor guy..I want to give him a hug...

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
In a human sense, yes..In a werewolve/vampire sense no..the treaty runs deep, its in his blood and such...

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
No! THANK GOD!

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
Definitely - if I had a daughter, her boyfriend had left her just like that and left her in the state she'd been in I'd be very much the same!

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
Nope - although there's not really been many to disapprove of!

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
He was hurt, obviously, and probably feeling a bit betrayed as well that she would go back to Edward so easily. I don't really do hugs, but I think I could spare him one!

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Not really as he believes they're dangerous - but he should also trust Bella's judgement.

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
I think his best friend is my mum - if so, it's all they ever do!

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
Absolutely. In his eyes this guy hurt his little girl, and when he looks at him, I am sure all he can see is the shell of a person that Bella became.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
No, but when I lived at home, I only had one real longterm boyfriend


3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
He was obviously hurting, but needed to let her know how he felt. I got images of his fighting the urge to phase through some of those scratched out parts, but also battling to not hurt her.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
No, he almost lost her for good recently, and is wary of the werewolves.

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?No

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
Yes, I think they are justified. Edward made Bella suffer a lot...

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
I've never had a relationship :/

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
I think he was sad because Edward's back and it's more diffcult for him to have a chance with Bella now...

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Yes. Bella just wants to be with her best friend!

5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?
My dad doesn't have a best friend, I think! lol

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?
Not really. I mean, all Charlie sees of Edward is when he comes to pick up Bella, or drop her off. He gets his ground only by how much time Bella spends with Edward (and not Jacob).
2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?
No, not yet...;-D
3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.
I thought Jacob was being childish, but atleast he had the guts to try and contact Bella without getting in the way of anybody else. I read it and thought, "He maybe a werewolf, but he still has the feelings and thoughts of a human." Even though, I'm team Edward, I kind of felt bad for him.
4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?
Kind of. I mean, Edward was overreacting, and he wants the best for her, but at the same time, he could back off a little bit.
5. Do your Dad and his best friend gossip like old women?No! He doesn't really see his best friend much, but when they do see each other, they talk more about politics, and global problems, and work and stuff. IT's honestly, really very boring.

1. Are Charlie's feelings toward Edward justified?

I think Charlie's feelings toward edward are not justified becasue i think he likes Jacob more than Edward for Bella. Sometimes, I think that Charlie likes Jacob more for Bella because of the fact that Billy and Charlie are somehow like bestfriends. Although sometimes, i think it is justifiend because Charlie is having a hard time trusting Edward again because of what happened in New Moon.

2. Have you ever had a parent disapprove of a relationship?

They always do. They think i'm too young and it would distract my studies

3. Describe your thoughts about Jacobs's message to Bella.

I think Jacob is really confused. He has this big grudge against the Cullens but if he continues on insiting that they are the bad guys and he can't be friends with the culles because as he says they are "bloodsuckers" , this would be the wall that will stand between their friendsip.

4. Do you feel Edward was being unreasonable in not wanting Bella to go to La Push?

I think Edward was being reasonable. For all the things that happend in La Push; the cliff diving, motorcyling and other studd; are really dangerous and as Edward says, Bella is accident magnet, he is being reasonable by not letting her go back there. Although, these activities were done because Edward had gone some place Bella didn't know. But, looking at the situation Edward is with Bella now, and i guess going back to La Push might just attract more accidents.
--sorry i'm being bitter at Jacob-- =p

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

nope =).. thank God for that =p
