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

I'm still not sure about that honestly. I kind of hope he finds someone because Jake's awesome and he deserves to find someone that he loves more than anything and she feels the same way about him. Although on the other hand, I really love how he so desperately loves Bella and competes with Edward for her, but I guess after Eclipse it's going to be pretty hard and he probably won't be as determined after her decision :(

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

I'm interested in what other legends there could be. I can't even begin to imagine what there may be, but I hope there's more for different types of creatures. I could name different ones for hours since I watch lots of TV and movies and read about that stuff a lot :)

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

I assumed that he would be upset and angry, but I got really scared for awhile when reading. I thought that he might change and hurt Bella like Emily was hurt by Sam, but I didn't think that Stephenie would do that. And even if she did, I doubt it would be anything serious. Not nearly as severe as Emily, but maybe like a scar on her arm or something. If I were Jacob I probably would have reacted similarily given the new information so I can't really blame him. I'm just glad he calmed down before he hurt 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?

Well, I think that if Bella's going to be at the Cullen house while Edward's away than she needs to sleep on something and a big bed's probably a lot more comfortable than a couch. But still, I didn't think he realized that when he bought the bed for her that she would take it in that way, but after he probably felt guilty for almost teasing her with it. I don't think he would really use the bed if Bella weren't there.

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

Ah, I've gotten into deep discussion about this many times before, so I just won't get into it. Short answer: I really don't know. It could go either way for numerous reasons.

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

I was always interested in knowing what other kinds of legends were out there. Jake said he's always surprised when he finds another when that's true, so I wanted to know which other ones actually turned out to be true.

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

I think it surprised me a little bit. I knew that Jake was against the whole idea, but his reaction was very forceful. I think, at that point, I realized how intent Jake really was on Bella not being changed, and how hard he was going to fight. I'm glad that was his reaction because it helped many people see that, I hope.

I think I might've reacted the same way if I were Jake - people really need to put themselves in his shoes sometimes throughout Eclipse. If I were in love with my best friend, who's in love with someone else, and now is basically planning to "kill" themself, I would probably do what Jake did.

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?

Aha. He may have been a bit teasing, afterwards, when he got back from his hunting trip, but I think his reason for getting the bed was purely for Bella's comfort. I'm sure he didn't even consider the thought of Bella sleeping on the couch and went out to get the bed right away - even though Bella's stated that his couch is quite comfy. Edward just always wants Bella to be safe and comfortable, and he'll do just that, even if it means going to the extremes. However, if I were Bella, I might've reacted the same way as her.

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
After reading the imprinting story in eclipse I knew that jacob would probably imprint on someone in the future. And i think it would probably be easier if he did, however I somehow think bella would be slightly jealous. Although I think it would take the pressure off her a bit knowing that he has found someone too.
2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
Yeah i think there is. I do have a theory of what may come up in the next book, but it's a few chapters away.
3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
Yeah i probably would have freaked out also. But i think it's because he cares about her and he still has this vendetta against the strong bond of hers and edwards relationship and he sees the change as a sacrifice to 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?
I think it was a sweet gesture, because he cares about her so much that he wants to make her as comfortable and 'at home' as he wants. The teasing thing however is because he knew that she would have something to say against the bed (because she doesn't like gifts so she normally gets all embarrassed anyway), but he'll be able to persuade her.

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

Yes, I think Jacob will eventually imprint, which is one reason why I'm glad Bella chose Edward. I f he imprinted, he would end up leaving her.

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

I don't know. Maybe Angela really is a witch. lolz

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. I probably would have reacted the 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?

I didn't think too much of Edward buying the bed. I really just thought it was so she would be comfortable while being "held hostage."

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

When I read this first, I was so afraid he's been imprinted on Bella. I really hope he'll find another girl, but it would be hard for Bella, though she'd already made her decision...


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

I really don't know, maybe something about other werewolf packs? I mean, they can't be the only one, otherwise they were already defeated by vampires.


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

I can understand him, but if he really, REALLY loved her, he wouldn't say she should die instead of being bitten, and maybe he could even accept her decision. He doesn't have to be glad about it, but he should understand that he can't always get his 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?

I was so disappointed when nothing at all really happened!!! And I think for Bella it was even worse. Of course, Edward meaned well, but at last, nothing resulted but deceitful hopes!
...Seine Hand fuhr an meinem Ellbogen entlang, langsam den Arm hinunter, über Rippen und Taille zur Hüfte und das Bein hinunter bis zum Knie. Dort ließ er die Hand einen Moment liegen, dann umfasste er meine Wade. Plötzlich hob er mein Bein an und schlang es um seine Hüfte.
"Nicht dass ich deinen Zorn vorzeitig heraufbeschwören wollte", flüsterte er, "aber könntest du mir vielleicht verraten, was du gegen dieses Bett hast?"

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
No i don't. i don't think stephenie would do that just because jake and bella were meant to be if there was no such thing as mythical creatures and that would just ruin the story.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
maybe something about a werewolf turning into a vampire or mixing blood or something

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 suprise me b/c he's jacob a werewolf and bella (his love) would turn into his mortal enemy. it would mean that there was no way that they could be together and that she loves edward more than him. it really hurt him whenever he found out what she was planning. i would definitly act the 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?
i think he just wanted her to be comfortable whenever she was being held hostage by alice, he's so protective and didn't want her sleeping on the couch.
"It's the safest time of day for us," he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. "The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don't you think?" He smiled wistfully. " I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
Yes, I think Jacob will imprint on someone. I hope so! I think it will be someone that's already in the books.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
I don't really know, but I want to know lol. Maybe something related to vampires?

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
Jacob's reaction didn't surprise me. It's obvious that he doesn't want Bella to be changed. He loves her and vampires and werewolves are enemies... And it would be quite impossible for them to have a relationship if she's changed. But I think I would have reacted the same way if I was 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?
I think Edward wasn't teasing Bella. He just wanted her to be comfortable. We all know that sleeping on a couch is not the most comfortable thing!

I hope so! Since Jacob is such a major character I can see him being one of the few to imprint on someone. (Like me!)
2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
Hmm, I'm not sure. Maybe we'll find out more about "can vampires bite werewolves, can werewolves imprint on vampires", etc.
3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
Not really. The girl he loves is going to be turned into the one species he hates; who would blame him for being angry?
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, being Edward, just bought the bed because he wanted Bella to feel comfortable and at home. I'll be he did have a little bit of a laugh over it though. :D

I hope so. Its never been said that he imprinted on Bella...Thank god lol... I'm hopeing that he finds someone though so that he will leave Bella alone...

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
I'm not sure...

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
Well, If I was jacob, I would have said...Congradulations! Be happy! But since I'm not... he threw a tantrum...

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?
He actually does intend to be with her in a more intimate way....after she finally agrees to marry him.
