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

I knew it had something to do with Victoria

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

No, he is just extremely protective of Bella, and he apologized for his behavior (of course)

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

Edward was far more friendly than Jacob deserved.

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


I would be proud of Edward for putting up with Jacob's thoughts/fantasies...

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I figured it had something to do with Victoria,

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?
Yah, i guess. But yet again he is overlyprotective of Bella, so i guess i can understand somewhat.

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

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
I am really not sure. Annoyed a little considering i would be the helpless person who has to be taken care of and protected all the time....

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

Yes it's not her fault, she can't see everything at once.

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

They both want to protect Bella

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

I would be proud of both of them, because they put aside there diffrences and are trying to work together.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I thought that it was either Victoria hiding her scent, or one of the new vampires. I couldn't imagine one of the Volturi coming to Forks without Alice seeing it. It's just impossible.


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

I don't know. I think his reaction was entirely justified because of the severity of the situation, but I don't think that it was Alice's fault that she didn't see it. He was out of line for pinning the blame on her like that.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
THAT threw me for a loop and I was just as shocked as Bella was.
But to be perfectly honest, that was one of my theories of what would happen sometime during Eclipse. So after reading that scene, I was jumping up and yelling, "YEAH!!! I WAS RIGHT!!!"
XDDD

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
See, here's the thing: I think like Bella. It's quite frightening.
Once the excitement of guessing what happened wore off, I was just as afraid for the both of them as she was. I was COMPLETELY against them going out and actually looking for Victoria. I didn't want any of the Cullens to get hurt, and I was just as scared for the pack too.

1. Who did you think the visitor in Bella's room was?
I had an idea that it was someone associated with Victoria. I never thought it could've been any of the Volturi. To me, they're so full of themselves, they would've jumped at the opportunity to make their presence known so they could "scare" everyone into submission. I can't imagine them sneaking around Bella's room in the middle of the night for any reason.

2. Do you think Edward was too harsh on Alice for not seeing the visitor? Why or why not?
I think he was just under so much stress, worrying about Bella's safety and all - that it just took a toll on him and he snapped at her. In my opinion, because Edward & Alice (& Jasper for that matter) are so close and share so much through their gifts, when suddenly those gifts fail it might freak them out a little bit. It's just like a bottle that had been shaken up so much that needed to explode, and poor Alice was on the receiving end of it.

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
I think they both realized that they had something to gain from the situation. It was hurting Bella to constantly struggle and be pulled between the two, which they recognized, so they both made adjustments. Impressive, I thought.

4. If you were Bella how would you feel about their conversation?
It's a conflicting moment, choosing between the person who is extremely important to you, and the person who mended you when the other abandoned you. I think Bella understanding where Edward was coming from was important.

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

I honestly thought it was one of the newborn vampires. They were probably drawn to Bella's enticing scent, and well, they just got really thirsty so they needed something to get to her.

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

I do think Edward was a bit too harsh on her. Alice has so much going on in her head, trying to see so many things, no wonder she's all jumbled up. Alice can't see everything.

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

I was happy! I kind of wanted some kind of peace between them.

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

I'd feel bad, me being the guilty person I am. XD I'd feel bad that they were risking their lives for me and that I was such a burden.

I pretty much agree with everyone else's answers, but for questions number three, Edward and Jacob's conversation...
I thought it was one of the best parts of the entire series. I felt like I understood them both so much better, but if I was Bella I would've forced myself to wake up properly and confront them.

i'm one of those 'let's all talk about it and work things out' kind of people.

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

I assumed it was another vampire and obviously not one they already knew about because the scent was unfamiliar.

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. They all know that Alice's visions are not foolproof. It wasn't really her fault that she couldn't see it.

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

I thought it was great that they finally had something to agree about!

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

I would probably be a little scared for both of them because they are like hunting down the vampire from the room. I would also be glad to see that they can be civil to one another though.

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

I thought it might be one of victoria's friends or one of the volturi.

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

Yes, It's not an exact science. But hey who can stay mad with Edward so long?

3. What do you think about Edward and Jacob's conversation and their sudden willingness to work together?
:? *shivers* It's creeping me out.

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

Happy they were finall getting along but a little creeped out.
