Yay! First time first!

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
At first I thought it was someone from the Volturi, but I wondered about Victoria or if she had someone working with her. I would've thought the visitor would have stayed and waited for her to come home.

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?

I think he was too harsh. Everyone wants to keep Bella safe, especially Alice because she knows how much Bella means to Edward. Alice has a lot on her mind, she's allowed to slip up a little once and a while.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?

I thought it was a little strange, but who cares? They were both looking out for the one they love, even if it's the same person. My second thought was, "Awww, they're growing up!"

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?

I be a little torn. I'd be happy that my two favorite people were working together without trying to kill each other, but I think she also felt like an object. Someone who just had to be taken care of and passed around from protector to protector. Oh well, whatever keeps her safe.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?

I actually made that connection right away. I didn't think there was an organized army or anything but I pictured kind of the newborn from Seattle coming down and sniffing her out. I thought it was just going to be because of her scent but what kind of a lame repeat would that be? Lol, I guess that's why SM's the pro and I'm still amateur.

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?

No, I don't think he was too harsh. I think he was upset, he lost it "sometimes you just lose it." Yes even if you are Edward Cullen. He didn't mean to be snippy and Alice knows him well enough to know that.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?

That was... abnormal?! It was completely unexpected, if I were Edward I would have faked sleep. Lol, what does the dog know anyway? He might buy it. A conversation between the two wasn't really that surprising it was just the situation in which it took place. I honestly couldn't believe Edward was speaking to him under those circumstances, and I can't believe Jake wasn't gloating the whole time. Yes, a truly grown up moment for all. Working together wasn't a shock at all, they did what needed to be done to protect Bella. We all knew they'd do that.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?

I think I would feel ..... false hope. Hope that I might be able to keep both of them in my life. After all, a girl's greatest fears are basically losing their best friend or losing their boyfriend, right? It has to bite (no pun intended) to really, truly face the decision of losing one or the other. And as she implied in "New Moon", you can start to hope for something without giving yourself permission, it's very easy. I think that conversation made it really hard to wake up in the morning to roars.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?

Haha well, it's obvious it was one of the vulturi's, but i always had in mind that it was alec, don't ask me why, but i always pictured him searching through bella's clothes

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?

Nah, he was ok, after all she can't see everything can she?

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?

UMMM *trying to get into eddie's mind*
i think it was like that they realised they had to do that, if they wanted to save bella's life, both of them accepting each other as a rival, but at the same time-only for that battle- working hand by hand to reach their purpose

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?

ummm, well, kind of of unconfortable... yeh... like that
And so... the lion fell off the stairs

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I thought the visitor was from the Volturi

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?
Yes. We all know Alice's visions are not perfect. Edward is just so uptight over Victoria and Jacob that he over reacted on Alice.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
I was pleased. I think it is the only thing that would work out best in the end for everyone.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
I would be hopeful. I would be hoping they were putting their differences aside and I would be able to have my true love and not loose my best friend at the same time.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?

I thought it was a vampire we weren't introduced to yet. I figured that since they were stealing her personal items, it was definitely someone after her specifically.

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?

Not really. He wants to make sure that Bella is safe. He was scared and Alice, he felt, was to blame.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?

You could see that they were both ready to fight for the girl. Deep down even though they "hate" each other and are enemies, they have a common bond - Bella.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?

I think I would be overjoyed. Here is my best friend and my "boyfriend" finally banding together. I would be hopeful that both my Romeo and Paris could exist in my life.
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. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
The visitor in Bella's room was probably Riley because he was mature enough not to kill Bella right off the bat when he was with Victoria. He is also the oldest vampire out of Victoria's army. Obviously it couldn't have been Victoria herself since the scent was not reconized by the Cullens
2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?
Yes, definately, she has personal things she need to see too. Like things about Jasper and their family. Bella is not going to be priority all the time. Edward is just sometimes overprotective
3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
I think it's great that they wanted to work together. They both agreed to work together because of Bella, to protect her.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
If I was Bella, I would feel very happy that they are working together. I would also feel very relieved to finally understand both of their views and why Edward had left. Also, how honest they were being.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I thought it was just some curious vampire. When they didn't find Bella there they just went somewhere else to find out what was going on. My second choice would have been the Volturi to check on her, but then I was waiting to see when they would go to the Cullens looking for Bella.
2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?
He was too harsh, like Alice said if she is looking for too much things will start falling through the cracks. Edward was just panicing because he didn't know what was going on, he is trying so hard to protect Bella.
3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
It seemed a little disquieting since they are at eachother's throats one minute and the next they are practically best buddies. It is nice that they are working together to protect Bella though.
4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
Like I was helpless, that I couldn't help in any way. Perhaps like that I am being pushed away or missing something because I am not allowed to express my opinions and be heard by them. Also, I would be slightly mad because now they can cooperate but at other times they are mortal enemies.
Staring into his eyes always made me feel extraordinary-- sort of like my bones were turning spongy. I was also a little lightheaded, but that could have been because I'd forgotten to keep breathing. Again.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I thought it was someone related to Victoria, she just wasn't going to give up.

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not? Yes and no, it seems that someone being able to "fool" Alice's ability is rare and they depend on her so heavily. No one is perfect, even these superhuman beings and for Edward to lash out as he did was wrong. Especially since they are having Alice keep tabs on so many things. However, he is overwhelmed with emotion so it is understandable, but it still does not excuse the behavior.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together? Both of them are devoted to Bella and would do anything to ensure her survival and happiness. Taking that into account, they would team up for that sole purpose. Will they get along, no of course not, the war over Bella's affections is still going strong, but they can put that aside for Bella's best interests.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation? I would think the experience would be surreal. I'd pinch myself to see if I was dreaming.

""Softly he brushed my cheek, then held my face between his marble hands. 'Be very still,' he whispered, as if I wasn't already frozen. Slowly, never moving his eyes from mine, he leaned toward me. Then abruptly, but very gently, he rested his cold cheek against the hollow at the base of my throat.""
