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

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
i don't know any other legends

3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
it didn't surprise ME, but if i was him i think i would be kind of expecting her to tell me that even thought it wouldn't have taken away the anger of knowing that he agreed to chance 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 don't think he was wrong... i mean first i see it as a way to make Bella more confortable on his house i mean he shouldn't make her sleep on the couch!! right? and second i think he could enjoy the bed too without getting to far or without sleeping...

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

A: I sure hope so.

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

A: I'm not sure how I would have reacted but his reaction didn't surprise me.

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?

A: I don't think he's teasing. His focus has always been her happiness, her protection, her comfort. A bed is usually more comfortable than a couch and I think that's all he intended. His actions after that were to persuade her to actually use the darn thing (and to get in a little nookie of course). ;)

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

A:I really hope so. I think maybe that will happen in Breaking Dawn. I wonder how it will affect Bella, though... Hopefully, she'll not be too upset about it since she decided to be with Edward anyways

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

A:hmmm, I don't know... Maybe there's witches out there too...lol I don't know!

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

A:I think he overreacted a bit. I don't know, I'm biased. I don't see what Bella sees in him besides a good friend. She only has the most perfect vampire in the world! Why does she need a werewolf too?! lol. I guess if it weren't for Edward I could see her with him...

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?

A:The actual buying of the bed was very sweet and thoughtful of him... What he did when he got back was too much. But I'm guessing that maybe he doesn't fully understand human hormones. Maybe it's not the same for vampires. Their sex drive must not be as strong. If he knew how much all that physical interaction affects Bella I don't think he would have pushed the boundaries so much. I would have been very frustrated with all that pulling her leg up around his waste if I were her! But I guess he doesn't realize it. I'm pretty sure human boys would not be able to handle that! lol

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

No, not necessarily. It could just so happen that he hasn't seen her yet. Forks is a small town, she doesn't have to be in Forks.

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

I can honestly say I don't know.

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. I may have gotten a bad temper about it but not as much as he overreacted & hurt her by what he said... that was just over the limit.

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 very sweet gesture for him to bring a bed in the room for her to sleep comfortably. He definitely wasn't teasing her.

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

Yes. I almost thought it would be funny if he imprinted on Leah but then I don't think that a wolf can imprint on another wolf can they? Hmm...

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

I have no idea but it makes you wonder.

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

His reaction was quite normal I think. Here he is learning that his best friend, the gal he loves is going to be changed in only a matter of weeks. Meaning that weeks stood between you having a best friend vs. an enemy. I think I would have been torn up about it and tried to talk some sense into Bella, but in the end it would have been her decision to make. Sometimes all you can do is take a step back and just let that person know that you'll always care for them no matter what.

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'm actually surprised he hadn't bought one sooner. I mean I am sure Bella has to have gone over to Edwards how many times before. Even if she didn't sleep there a bed would still be cool just to relax on while listening to music and such. I do think his way of trying to get her to see the various possibilities was probably not the best way. She's a teen with raging hormones and he didn't think that was going to present a problem with his 'demonstration' on the pro's of owning a bed...

1.Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on? I think he'll find his girl someday and I really hope it isn't Bella. Thought I really don't think it will be her.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be? I really have no idea, but it doesn't stop me from wondering. I was really kind of captivated by the legends like Bella was. It's cool to hear about the history of the spirit wolves :D

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 knew he'd react badly. Can you imagine hearing that the girl/boy you were in love with was going to turn into vampire, you're sworn enemy? I'd feel awful, I'd feel apalled. Most of it has to do with his prejudice for vampires thought. I don't think he would've reacted as badly if he weren't a werewolf, though that'd be an interesting twist!

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? Edward bought her the bed to make Bella feel more comfortable. In a sweet gesture he bought her the bed to show her that he remembers all of her human needs, like sleep. Plus spooning (cuddling) on a couch would be much harder! :lol: I don't think it was neccessarily wrong of him to buy it for her but knowing Bella she'll probably get a little carried away and push the issue of Edward not intending to be with her in a more intimate way, but that's just me. But the way Edward issued the advantages of the having the bed was evvviilll that little tease ha ha.

1. Now that we know more of the pack have imprinted, do you think Jacob will find someone to imprint on?
I really hope so, but I believe so, too. It's the only right way left. Even though I am Team Edward, I love Jacob still. And I hope he finds happiness.

2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
I really have no clue. It would be cool if they can like, teleport. xD

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. I probably would've reacted the same way. Vampires are his mortal enemy. I could see why that would make him angry, of course.

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 also bought it so she would be more comfortable. That's pretty sweet. ^^

"But," Edward went on, "If I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that."

I don't think Jacob will imprint. I think Leah has imprinted on him and uses her abrasiveness and bitterness to hide this fact while in wolf mode.
Alphie wrote:2. What about Jacob's comment about all the legends being true, what other legends might there be?
Well, considering the full moon and silver bullets and all that stuff being out...looking with the series...The Stregoni Benefici, which we all know was start by Carlisle doesn't appear to actually exist within the 3 novels. Meaning that Carlisle doesn't hunt down and kill evil vamps or anything...however, this may come to pass in the next book.
Alphie wrote:3. Did Jacob's reaction to Bella's revelation about being changed surprise you? How would you have reacted if you were Jacob?
It's not surprising at all. It goes with Jacob's more "hot-blooded" nature. I don't think I would change his reaction if I were him, as it seems perfectly in key with how he is...however, I'd hope he'd think a bit more before he speaks.
Alphie wrote: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?
Ha! Edward is a tease, but the bed had nothing to do with that! lol. I don't think he bought the bed to be a tease, that he did actually buy it so Bella wouldn't have to sleep on the couch. His intent for the purchase is genuine, I think...however, it might not have been his only intent with this purchase.

This, I have to say is my favorite chapter. Edward apologizes, says he trust her judgment, it's great.

I hope so for his sake, but honestly, I don't think he will. I think he will be confronted with even more difficult issues that he will have to sort through, all the while loving Bella so much it kills him inside.

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

I think there might be a legend about a truce between vampires and werewolves when a very particular event comes to pass...I don't know what that event would be...maybe a vamp dying for a wolf. (I don't want anyone to die though.)

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 response did not surprise me. That would be so hard to hear. I think that deep down, though he said otherwise, he believed she could find the strength to choose him. Hearing she would change probably took the last of that hope away. I would have reacted awfully compared to Jacob. I would have switched to a werewolf right then and run for the hills.

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?
Maybe he was teasing a little bit, but I have to refer back to his comment that "he may not be a human, but he is a man." He wants her too. I think that subconsciously he was already weakening. He wasn't wrong, he just wanted to make her comfortable...he's a giving type of person. Anything for Bella, right?
Go Team Edward. Though Jake should live.

I think he will, but I think it will be someone who did not know him before he was a werewolf. He would need someone who would take him for what he is now, not for what he was before he was a werewolf. :)
Jacob Black, not going down without a fight!
