Chapter Eight: Temper

Post by Alphie »

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?

kay, my first forum post... here we go...
1. I really really think that Jacob will imprint on someone. I find that it's just bound to happen because Jacob is so heartbroken over Bella right now, he's having trouble really being him self and concentrating on the Jacob he is. If he were to imprint on someone, then it would help releive the weight of a broken love from his shoulders. The only problem with that is, if he were to imprint on someone, Bella's reaction. Would she feel heartbroken? Because she loves Jacob, maybe not as much as Edward but she still loves him, I think upon finding this out one of the "holes" in her chest would re-open, leaving her feeling partially dismembered. She always knew that he loved her, and when she lost him in New Moon (when he became a werewolf) she talked about how she felt so sad and horrible, imagine her finding out he didn't love her anymore and that it wasn't irreversable.

2. To be honest, i know no other werewolf legends, heh, heh, heh.

3. It did not surprise me at all, infact, i was a bit relieved that he told her that. I knew that he was going to get ticked off, but i was thinking more of him becoming a werewolf and going total a-wall. If i were in his place, i probably would have gotten totaly pissed, like him, but would have just like, yelled in protest or freaked out in a bit of a lower profile way. The way Jacob freaked out really sutied his personality, he says what he's thinking, not wanting to cut anything out, that's what makes him such a sweet caracter, he doesn't want to keep anything from Bella

4. I completly dissagree with those who said Edward teased Bella by buying the bed. He bought it for her comfort, because he didn't want the love of his eternity(?) to spend two nights sleeping on a leather couch. I find it more sweet than anything, he gave up his personal space for her comfort. I do think his way of getting her on the bed was a bit of a tease, but hell, just looking at Ewdard is a tease in it's self! :wink:

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?

I really hope he does. He deserves it. I think it will come in Breaking Dawn. He's just still really hung up on Bella. I wonder if that affects his ability to imprint? Never mind, because still happened to Sam with Emily.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?

Hmm... maybe there's a another species involved too. The vampires and werewolves may both have a common enemy and they will be forced to join forces and re-do the treaty.

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?

No, it didn't surprise me at all. I would have reacted very badly if I were Jacob. He really cares about Bella and doesn't agree with her choice. If I were Jacob, i would do anything in my power to stop her, whatever the consequences.

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?

I think Edward was just trying to be nice. He wants Bella to be as comfortable as possible. He may have been sending subtle messages to her that he may change his mind and want to try one day, but I think he just has her best interest at heart.

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?

I think he will. I think SM would want him to be happy in the end. Plus since everyone around him seems to be imprinting I would think he would eventually as well.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?

I'm not too sure about any other werewolf legends.

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?

No, Im not surprised he was upset. He loves her - he wants her to choose him after all. I just don't think he realizes he could leave her at any moment if he imprints even though he swears he never would. I probably would have reacted the exact same way.

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?

No, he wants her to be comfortable. Edward is all about making Bella happy and he would do anything to please her. I don't believe there was any malicious intent involved.
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

I think Jacob will eventually imprint on someone later if not sooner. but when he does he will be happy because he will totally forget about bella and the feelings he had for her

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?

I'm truly not sure i can't think right now lol...sorry

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?

No i'm not suprised i would have reacted the same way...i am just glad bella choose edward because even though jacob loves bella he can imprint at anytime a he will forget about bella

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?

no thats not tru edward just wants to make bella happy and comfortable in anyway he possibly can. and he does promise bella that they will be intamite before she is changed into a vampire and before they get married
""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.""

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?

I thought that was a given at first, but now I'm really not sure. And honestly it's hard for me not to let my emotions get in the way of my thought process. Considering his behaviour in Eclipse (which was in many cases appalling) I really almost think he should serve some time in penance (for lack of a less melodramatic word). Ya know? I think some time as a wolf might serve him well. Just kind of give him time to think. I mean he was not just disrespectful to Edward, he disrespected Bella too, and he didn't seem to have any problem with that. Don't get me wrong, in the end, I don't truly hate him, and I think he deserves some peace and happiness, but he certainly doesn't deserve to come by it easily.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?

I actually just had a kind of epiphany about that this afternoon. I was reading.... I think it was a Personal Correspondence, and SM said that in "Breaking Dawn" there will be some info on the mystery of why the Volturis' skin looks so frail. I thought maybe Jacob knew more than he was letting on, maybe something about how vampires age/how to wear them down. But I could be totally wrong.

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?

I guess it did, but I think it was because her desire to be changed, and how soon, was all common knowledge to us. It was kind of like two plus two is four and then someone tells you they thought it was nine. You kind of gape at how someone could not know that. But as far as how he felt for her and his resulting reaction it does make sense.

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?

Lol, wow teasing her? :roll: I haven't heard that one. I guess it could end up being a tease but I don't thing that was his intention, come on, we all know Edward, would he do that? I think it just comes down to the fact that, 1. I'm sure it wasn't the only time she stayed there. 2. Leather is sleek and sexy but it does NOT breath. and 3. He probably wants them BOTH to be able to lay down and be comfortable, I mean come on he can't sleep but sometimes you just need to chill and Edward has had 100+ years of not chilling.

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
Eventually, yes. But I think Jacob is going to be so completely shocked when it happens, he will be in total denial for a while.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
When he said that, I was wondering if somehow Bella was going to be the key to peace between the vampires and the werewolves.

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
No. I would have been furious. Simply because once she is changed, there is no hope of him being with her.

4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?
No. I think he was doing it out of love. I honestly think he has been working on the self control issues to be able to be intimate with her. I'm sure he is as frustrated with their intimacy issues as she is.

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
I think Jacob will find someone. I think that if he doesn't try a little bit he will just hurt himself more. His mate will be perfect for him and help him with his flaws.
2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
Maybe about what really happened to Atlantis? :lol: I can't think of any, maybe the legends just help verify why the tribe has certain traditions.
3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
I wasn't surprised, Jacob would freak out about anything that has to do with Edward. He could have voiced his opinions better though so he didn't get Bella mad. I think I would have gotten mad but not freaked out. I would try and find out why she chose that path and try to convince her otherwise. Maybe I would come to see her argument in the end.
4. Some have accused Edward for teasing Bella by buying the bed. Do you think Edward was wrong to have bought the bed given the fact that he can't sleep, nor does he intend to ever be with Bella in a more intimate way?
It wasn't wrong of Edward to buy a bed but I think he was teasing her a little bit with the size and luxury of it. He wanted Bella to be comfortable when she was held hostage so she wouldn't be so mad. He wasn't expecting to be intimate but why go all out on a nice bed just for her to sleep on?? Maybe he wanted a bigger one because then it wouldn't be as cramped like on her bed.
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. I think that Stephenie would eventually let him imprint, because if she didn't the Jacob lovers in the Fandom would choke her. :lol: But seriously, I think he will. Stephenie would probably would like to think the same, so she might have made him imrpint by book 4. But if he doesn't, there's all the other things that could happen after book 4. Maybe he does, but it won't say.
2. Well, in the first book, Edward mentions that Carlisle' father went on crusades so destroy monsters, but that the monsters that he sought after where not so easily found. And Carlisle mentions that it was to seek out "Witches, werewolves, and vampires" So if Jacob says the legends are true, WITCHES may also be monsters in the story.
3. I can understand why he freaked out. The girl of his life would throw away her soul to become one of them! I would have handled it the same, but I would have TRIED not to.
4. I don't think he meant to tease her. Because he is throughly shocked when Bella comes to that conclusion. It's just that he has a lot of money and can afford the best for him Bella, and of course we all know that he loves to buy her things.
Come here Jacob. I'll make you feel loved. <3
