1. How do you feel about imprinting?
Imprinting isn't as bad as it seems. The wolves imprint on the people made for them. Their soul mates. What could be so bad about finding the PERFECT person for you and knowing the moment you see them? Though it may break hearts along the way, hearts heal and it just wasn't meant to be.
2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compasionate towards them? Why or why not?
I have a hardened heart towards the wolves. They seem selfish and young. or maybe thats just Jacob. :]
3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
Yes. Jacob Black is always saying Edward is so jealous, but in reality, he is more jealous than Edward. He tries to get to Edward and make him feel like a horrible person, but he isn't in the least.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
Oh yes. From what i know about boys, friendly gestures to us girls, mean something TOTALLY different to boys. Bella led him on.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
The advantages are, of course, knowing if anyone in the pack needs help or is in danger. The disadvantages are, like Jacob said, no one has any secrets.

First off, I'm a huge Jacob/Werewolf supporter so all my answers are going to be really pro jacob lol. ok.

1. How do you feel about imprinting?

I think that imprinting has it's good sides and bad sides. I love how it brings people together w/ such an amazing inseperable bond. it's beautiful. The bad side is like Sam and Leah for example. If you're in a situation like that, it's just like being in love against your will because imprinting's so much stronger than love.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compassionate towards them? Why or why not?

Well, I loved the wolves from the start so I guess it just made me even more understanding of them. I wish the haters out there would just see that werewolves are very alike with the Vamps in the way that they never had a choice..

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?

I don't think it was wrong, but it wasn't right either. I understand Jacob's point of view. I understand the betrayal he felt by Bella because she just returned to him like that so when he did what he did, I understand that he was just trying to do something, anything, to win bella back.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?

Of course! This is one of the reasons I really dislike Bella sometimes. She can't have both, yet she just doesn't understand that and HAS to break his heart.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?

You can communicate??

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
It sounds like a beautiful version of love at first sight.


2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compasionate towards them? Why or why not?
Yes, I do feel compasionate toward them. It shows how much he was devastated by what happened with Leah. And I think the worst part is that the whole pack knows every detail and and every emotion he felt as a result.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
No. I think Edward needed to see the impact he had on her the way he left. If nothing else it shows him why he must never leave her like that again.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
I got so mad when these things happened. I know how much she loves Edward and how much Jacob means to her, but she needs to put her foot down and lay down some ground rules with her friend.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
Of course they can know instantly what is going on and not have to worry about the delay from the brain to the mouth. It can be an advantage in personal situations, because the pack can know exactly what is going on and what they can do to help each other out during a personal crisis.

1. How do you feel about imprinting? I feel that it's a great thing.. love at first sight.. but.. I don't like it.. because well.. you suddenly fall madly in love with someone else.. and you might be with someone.. eg Leah and Sam.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compasionate towards them? Why or why not? Sam's story didn't make me feel differently about the wolves.. because i was a fan of the werewolves anywayz.. More compassion towards them.. hmmm yeah, because it was hard.. they were just lucky they had other people to support them.. poor sam :(

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her? No i don't think Jacob was wrong.. because he showed Edward what he did to Bella.. and made sure that he understood how bad he hurt her.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say? I think it does.. it was so bad when she did.. because okay, we know that she's best friends with Jacob.. but seriously.. she should have stopped her/his emotions from going further.. because she has edward.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones? The advantages are that you can understand what is going on .. and know every detail.. it is also easy to communicate. The disadvantages.. are state the obvious.. you get no privacy..

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
I find it very interesting. it adds another complication to the story and its almost freaky how its like love at first sight, except stronger.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compasionate towards them? Why or why not?
it made the wolves seem almost as trapped as the vampires are. Sam was forced to leave leah but he also gained emily...very bittersweet.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
Yea that was pretty low.
-2000pts jacob.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
yea its almost like she was leading jacob on unintentionally.
even though she probably didn't notice.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
well the advantages are that you always know what is happening with everyone else. as a pack trust is important anyway so you always know if someone is being deceitful or is having a problem so you can work towards a resolution. and it helps to coordinate strategies. of course it would suck to have everyone know what is going through your head...i know i would hate it.

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
It's very unusual, but really cool. Although it would be kind of creepy having someone that dedicated to you. I don't think I could handle that level of adoration. I would feel weird about it.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compassionate towards them? Why or why not?
I feel more compassionate, yes he disfigured the love of his life but it was in a moment of weakness for Sam, and he's had to live with what he's done every day since. I think it makes it a little more obvious why the Cullen's believe the wolves to be more dangerous, there is always a chance that they can lose their tempers in a moments notice and in turn lose control.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
I think it was wrong, Edward felt bad enough, although Jacob didn't know this he should have put himself in that situation and realized that it would have been just as hard on Edward as it had on Bella. Jacob does things without thinking about them.
Edward stated in the book that he would never forgive himself for leaving and he would spend the rest of his life trying to make up for it. (I know this doesn't come till later)
I know that Jacob is convinced he and Bella would have been together if Edward had stayed away so I can see some of his reasoning behind it. But the most important reason it was wrong is because it also hurt Bella, Jacob should have known this, he knows her well enough to realize that hurting Edward makes it difficult for her.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
I think they meant something different to Jacob, and it was careless of Bella to let it get to that point. But Jacob picked her up when she was sinking into despair in New Moon and that would always leave a lasting impression on her, so I also understand why she couldn't make herself hurt him that way.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
All the advantages come with their hunting tactics, I think it also bonds them as brothers (and sister). The disadvantages are the fact that everyone knows your pain, your thoughts, your innermost secrets that you wouldn't tell anyone. The hardest part would be being unable to keep your thoughts sacred. I know that I have a whole bunch of thoughts that I wouldn't want anyone to hear because they define who I am, I don't think I could handle someone being in my head with me.

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
I think it's pretty interesting really...it is kind of like easier in a way if you are the imprintee, because you don't have to search for forever dating people that are not 'meant' for you...as soon as you see your werewolf(if you have one)then you have your love for life.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compassionate towards them? Why or why not?
Uh yes, I mean I never didn't feel compassionate toward the whole pack? I felt bad for Emily, but reading it, it was like it didn't matter to her because she had Sam and that he would never intentionally hurt her.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
It was a HORRIBLE thing to do..of course he was only doing it to show Edward what happened to Bella because of his leaving and was trying to win Bella over..but because I love Edward..I know that Edward was not only beating himself up for leaving(probably way more than Bella too)but I hate it when he is sad..he apologized to Bella, and it hurts him so much to see what condition he left Bella in.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
I do understand that she loves Jacob...so I also understand that she didn't just want to cut him off from her life when Edward came back. But on the other hand..her LOVE, Edward who she cried so many months over and who she almost nearly killed herself over came back...she still loves him more, she still needs him..he loves her more than life and visaversa. She couldn't be with Jacob, and be fair to him..because she will always Love Edward.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
The good things are that they are like a swat unit without the walkie-talkies..which is much much less discrete(obviously)...and they are able to make plans/attacks w/o discussing them. The disadvantages like that are explained...are that nothing is personal, every thought or image inside their head is shared with every member of the pack. There is no privacy..the whole thing with leah thinking about how sam left her and whatnot would be embarrassing.

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
I thought it was interesting. I didn't have really strong opinions other than that.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves? Do you feel more compasionate towards them? Why or why not?
Umm, I felt more compassionate towards Sam but not the wolves. That was Sam's personality and opinions, no one else necessarily thinks like that.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
I think Edward needed to know and that's the one "weapon" Jacob has against Edward. He didn't need to do it so many times, though.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
Definitely. She doesn't know she loves him, but her sub-conscious does, though. I think that's her sub-conscious allowing that to happen and everything. It was most definitely misleading for Jacob who has no experience with girls.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
You'll know what's on someone's mind that's bothering them and help them rid of their thought. Then, it's good for fighting. Like when everyone knew Jacob got hurt at the end of Eclipse.

1. How do you feel about imprinting?
I thought it was pretty neat and interesting. Weird, but still cool.

2. Does Sam's story make you feel differently about the wolves?
It made me feel more sympathy for them, definitely.

3. Do you think Jacob was wrong to show Edward the images of Bella while he was away from her?
Yes and no. I think it was a very mean thing to do, but I also think Edward needed to see it. I can also understand why Jacob did it. I don't blame him.

4. Do Bella's actions towards Jacob (promising to come back when Edward is away, holding hands with him instead of letting him touch her face) say something different than what she intends them to say?
She always seems to want the actions to be nothing more than friendship, but I believe it says something much more than that. Holding hands with another boy seems out of line to me, but then again, that is their relationship. I just don't see why she does it if she wants to stay friends and makes a big point at that.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the wolves being able to see each others thoughts, even the most personal ones?
Like Jacob said, when hunting for Victoria and whatnot, it's very useful. The members are able to coordinate very efficiently. And like Jacob also said, there is no privacy. Huge bummer there. Not to mention Leah being nearly tormenting with the ability.
