1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

Both. And if I were him I would be too. I would hate it if my enemy was with my girlfriend & I wasn't allowed to be with her because of the treaty. I would be worrying constantly that something might go wrong.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

I think It's guilt, but also the fact that she misses him. She wasn't conciously aware of her feelings for him even though they were laid out for everyone else to see.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

She knows that Bella can overreact some times. And i thin k she was having too much fun to worry about it anyways.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Of, course!

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?


Yes and no. Yes because it was only a reminder that we couldn't get carried away. And no because it was more comfortable than the couch.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

Both. Edward has a tendency to overreact, but this was a bit too much to simply be out of fear for Bella's safety.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

I think its that she misses him. How could she not? I missed him insanely! They were best friends, and she didn't want to give that up.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

Alice is unruffled at things like that. But she wasn't about to disobey Edward, either.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Maybe, but just because Edward is so persuasive, and only if I truly thought it was in Bella's best interest. And Alice really did want a "girls night out."

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

Of course not! I would be all over Edward, totally happy! Bella needs to not worry about Edward spending money on her.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

A mix of both. I mean, we all know Jacob can be dangerous if provoked, but he overreacted, and he took pretty big measures to protect Bella, like bribing Alice with a car, and well...Edward loves Bella, so it's only natural for him to feel jealous.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

She had gotten very attached to Jacob those months, after all he was the one who had "stitched" her back up and had been there for her. So perhaps it was a little guilt that she hasn't been able to see him, as well as her missing him, after all he's her best friend...and a little more, but Bella didn't know that at the time. :?

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

I think in a way Alice understood how Edward felt, and she herself was probably concerned about Bella's safety, and she knows bella so well that i'm sure she expected that kind of reaction, not to mention she may have seen it in a vision before. And well, getting a car in exchange adds little bonus ;)

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

YES.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

Well, if I was Bella, as in Bella's character, yes, because as we all know Bella isn't a fan of extravagant, ostentatious things, so she probably found the bed a little too much, yet she was pleased for the comfort.
However if it were me, I would have loved the bed, haha.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think that Edward is scared about Bella hanging around werewolves, but I think that just the excuse to cover up his jealously.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
Bella loves Jacob. That a fact. It just happens to her in a more gradual way, with Edward it was head-over-heels kind of love.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
Alice does this out of love for Bella, so her reaction probably means little or nothing to her. She just wants her to be safe.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
In the words of the great and cuddly Emmett: "Hell's yea!"

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
No way. If anything I think I might cry. It was just such a kind sweet gesture. It just showed how much he cared.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

I think he is jealous, though he would never admit it. But I also believe he thinks the wolves are dangerous. Look what happened with Sam. You cannot trust a young werewolf.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

It's something more. I think she really loves him and is afraid he is upset with her. Bella is always concerned with people around her more than she is with herself.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

Because that is Alice's temperament. Not much really does bother Alice.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Sure. Alice wants the car, but she also wants to make sure Bella is safe. Like she has said before, they would have to live with Edward if anything ever happened to Bella.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

Sure I would be a little huffy just for the fact that I am being held hostage. But then I would realize he did it out of love and concern.
You gave me two alternatives that you could live with, and I chose the one that I could live with. That's how compromise is supposed to work. - Edward


If I could dream at all, it would be about you. And I'm not ashamed of it. - Edward

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think he is jealous too. He can see that he pushed Bella to Jacob when he left her and that he filled a hole that Edward left. I'm sure it just kills him to see Bella so attached to Jacob.


2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
I think guilt is part of it. I also think she doesn't know how to let him go either.


3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
Alice is like no one else. I'm sure she already saw Bella's reaction is at peace with it. She loves Bella and will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.


4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
Oh yeah. She knew she was getting the car for Christmas anyway, this was just a bonus. Plus, she was trying to keep Bella safe and Edward sane at the same time.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
I know she was mad because she wants to be a vampire and does not see a bed a necessary since vampire's don't sleep. But, I would have looked at the bigger picture. He was making it comfortable for her while she was staying over before she become a vampire. It was done out of love.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
I think he is mainly jelous. he just doesn't know how to handle it, never having to deal with it to this magnitude before. so he does the most natural thing...he freaks. But i also think hes afraid that the wolves are dangerous, he doesn't know much about them or jacob.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
i think at first it was just because she owes jake. he saves her from herself in new moon. but because edward wasn't at an equilibrium from the start with Bella, he sort of pushed her towards jacob. even though she loves jacob its not nearly at the same magnitude as hers for edward. simply because of the fact that she can leave jacob.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
Alice is very assured of her future. if bella's outrage was something to be worried about she probably would have been more bothered.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
Yea. its a Porche!!
She gets her christmas present early AND keeps bella safe. which is important to alice since bella is like her sister.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
ummm no. If i get sleep next to edward then its all good =)

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

I think a little of both. He's always so worried about her (for good reason, too.). But he could be jealous because Jacob is getting the attention he used to get, even if it's just a little bit. Now Bella wants to spend time with someone he doesn't appove of. Why? What's going on? It's enough to drive anyone crazy.

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

In New Moon he was her best friend, the one who knew everything (after a while.). He knew Edward was a vampire, but he respected her enough not to say anything for the most part. She became depented on him in a way.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

She likes it. Haha. I think it's because Alice understands why Bella is mad, but even more so, she understands Edward. Jasper did basically the same thing for her during the battle...well, almost. I think it's nice that she tried to make it enjoyable for Bella though.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Anything...almost. I mean, Edward offers you a car...if you're not Bella, you're taking it.

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

...*giggles*...the bed? Would I be mad if he broke it? Yes. Would I be mad that he bought it in the first place...no. Not at all. I think it was nice that he tried to make her comfortable. If Bella wasn't so mad about being held hostage, she might have, too.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?
Uh Jealous, and I think he has every right to be, he knows what Jacob's thinking and he also knows that Jacob will stop at nothing to win Bella's heart. I think he would be crazy not to be jealous. I'll admit Edward is and always will be the bigger man. He's mature, and thoughtful and considerate of Bella, but I'm certain he holds the jealousy close to himself as a punishment for leaving. I don't think he realizes how awesome he is!!

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?
I'm pretty sure it's the guilt, but there is more than likely something else pulling her there, (I know the ending) and I think her subconscious drives her to it. She's still unaware of Jacob's emotional hold on her.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?
Alice is pretty intuitive and I think she's aware of Bella's emotional attachment to Jacob, I'm sure that she thinks she's doing what's best for Bella and Edward. Although she would never say it to Bella, she probably thinks that it would be better to stay away from Jacob because Bella's subconscious is making decisions of it's own.

4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?
Without a doubt lol, her and Bella are friends, I think this is one of the few times I felt Bella was being a little bratty, I think she was a little hostile to Alice during this 'kidnapping'

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?
Are you crazy? Heck no I wouldn't be angry... Think of all the cuddle time you could fit in on a monster bed like that.

1. Do you think Edward is really jealous or is he just concerned that the wolves are dangerous?

A combination of both. Werewolves always lose there tempers soon or later, he wouldn't risk Bella's life that way. And of course he's jealous, who would want their girlfriend/boyfriend going to see someone who wants to steal them away?

2. Why do you think Bella is so insistent on seeing Jacob? Is it guilt or could it be something more?

Personally I think its guilt. In a way she totally ditched him as soon as Edward and the Cullens came back. She does owe him something. I know that apparentky she "loves" him but I think that's a bunch of bull.

3. Why do you think Alice is not bothered by Bella's outrage at being held hostage?

Because she also agrees that werewolves are dangerous. On top of that she can't see them. In the book Edward states that Alice hates to "blind". That, and although alittle selfish, she's getting the car she's in love with.


4. If you were Alice, would you have done what she did in exchange for the car?

Yes. to me the question is; why NOT?

5. If you were Bella, would you be angry about the bed? Why?

No, I found her reaction so stupid. I mean come on, anger??? To me it soundly heavenly, I would have jumped right on it and went to sleep.
