1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

I am always realising things at the same time as Bella, so I wasn't surprised. (if that makes sense?)

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

I have no idea! lol

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

Contemplating the end of her human life. I would have been anyways... :wink:

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

100% honest, coz you just don't think your dad is rubbish when hes been there like that for Bella. :)

Fire and ice chapter sixteen: epoch

1. when bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns were you surprised? If not when did you figure it out?

Umm... i wasn't surprised at all and i figured it out when she noticed that her things were missing and the thing is that if she got by alice then how did she get past the werewolves??? so i think that the werewolves would have gotten her if she slipped by alice because forks is afterall neutral.


2. How did you feel about jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with bella? Would you have reacted the same way?

well jess's nervous chatter with bella seemed odd at first but then it would have made sense because they are leaving and they might not see any of thier friends again and I personally think that jess felt guilty for bailing out on bella and so she wanted to patch things up before she left. I would have reacted the same way but then i would have been excited with her and talked to her more because i am just like that i talk to everyone even if they had done me wrong. :D

When the world falls down and the war is done i know that we will always be together....FOREVER!

I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!!- edward to me! duh!

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

No, not at all. I never once thought it was two different groups of people.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

It was nostalgic grad stuff... i didn't think much of it, but it was definitely something I went through at grad with my old friends.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

I don't think so. Graduation doesn't seem like a "Bella" kind of event. I don't think it would have had anything to do with the ending of her human life at all.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

I think it was very honest. Through all of Charlie's flaws, and bella's, he has been the best dad he has been able to be, and that's all she ever wanted. so, that is true.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

I knew something was us, I just didn't know what.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

I think Jessica was really fake. I think if I were Bella, my eyebrows would have gone up at her reaction to graduation.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

I think she would have been more excited...but the circumstances didnt call for excitement, OBVIOUSLY:)

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

I personally find Charlie to be an EXCELLENT father. No dad is EVER perfect. Bella has only been around less than a year and she is awkward to begin with. Not to mention she is a girl. Charlie does the best he knows how which is more than some fathers do...I think that he and Bella are a perfect fit. GOOD JOB CHARLIE!! LOL.... :wink:

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

As Bella started making the connection between the two, I began to as well, so I don't think I was that surprised.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

I think that is so typical of so many girls at the end of highschool! I would have acted the same way as Bella did, maybe a little more standoffish in the begining

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

I don't Bella would have been anymore excited to graduate, one because she just really isn't that kind of person to get excited over any thing and two she would forsure have contemplating the "ending" of her human life. Wouldn't you be?

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

I think Bella was being honest, she knew Charlie did his best and tried to everything he thought was right for her.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

No i wasnt surprised but i didnt exactly figure it out either. It was just kind of like hmmm that makes sense. OKay..! what happens next!?

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

Mmmm. I thought it was really fake but as said she just wanted some closure or w/e(that was said correct? lol).

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

No i dont think she would have. I mean seriously...this is Bella, she would have been dreading walking across the stage and worrying about fallings and moping about the party afterwards.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

I think she was completely honest. Charlie is the best dad...for her.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

I wasn't surprised; I had a feeling it wasn't Alice who'd "cleaned out" Bella's room, but since Edward didn't recognize the scent and it wasn't Victoria, I did wonder which new vampire it was doing Victoria's bidding, or whether there might be a new enemy Stephenie was introducing us to.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

Jess was always a jealous, self-centered phony, and her sudden "friendship" towards Bella was clearly motivated by her invitation to the Cullens' party. Even in the beginning of "Twilight," she was only friendly towards Bella because she saw how all the guys were talking about her as the new girl and Chief Swan's daughter, so she thought it'd make her more popular if she befriended Bella. Once she received the party invite, Bella was suddenly the center of attention again, so Jess had to befriend her again. Given the circumstances swimming in Bella's mind at graduation, I probably would've acted the same way as Bella: Jess never did require much conversation from anyone else since she did all the talking anyway.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

I don't think so; since she fell in love with Edward, nothing else "human" has really consumed her thoughts. Because graduation signaled to her the ending of her human life, even without the Seattle newborns, Bella wouldn't have been able to get excited over graduation.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

Although she was completely distracted by the Seattle situation and dreading the party, I still think she was very honest with Charlie. She was still thinking that she's going to become a vampire soon now that graduation's over, so I don't see why she wouldn't have been honest with Charlie, knowing she'd have to say good-bye to him forever very soon. She's always been concerned about leaving him and his safety, and I think she fully understands and appreciates that he's done the best he can for her. Bella's not even remotely materialistic, so Charlie's feeling that he couldn't give her everything would be irrelevant for her; she knows he cares deeply about her, even if he can't say it, and that's enough for Bella.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
I was suprised; I didn't even think about the two events being connected.
2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Probably. Bella was nice to Jess even though she knew she was only talking to her in thanks for the party invite, and I would have tried to do the same.
3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
I don't think she would have been very excited even if the danger of the visitor wasn't there. Bella doesn't get really excited easily, and I think she would have been relieved than excited.
4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
I don't think Bella was lying to Charlie; she knew he tried his hardest to be a good father, and she really was glad that she came to live with him.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
no i wasn't suprised, i always thought that there was some connection between the two but i just wasn't sure why. i'm not really sure when i figured it out, it just kind of came to me.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
i was pretty mad but i would have prabably done the same thing.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
no i don't think that she would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
i think she was telling the truth the whole time during that conversation. she knew that he didn't have any "dad" experience yet he still tried his best and was pretty good at it in the end. he was exactly the type of dad bella needed/wanted.
"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. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
It actuallly didn't suprise me...... well it did suprise me, because for some reason I thought that this connection had already been made, and it was obvious.
2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Well, thier "friendship" was light, so i would have acted the same way.
3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
Well, Bella will be Bella, and so she would have hated graduation anyway (take your example from prom... she CRIED!) And she would have always contemplated becoming a vampire, she's going to live with Edward FOREVER! Why not anticipate something like that!
4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
Yes, I think Bella was honest in this, I saw it as sort of a final goodbye to her father, expressing her appreciation, before she has to dissapear when she goes off to college next fall.
In the meantime, Bella was with Eric. Later, she met up with Edward and made him quack like a duck. About a month later, they're all on the Maury show, and Bella is Eric's baby's mama. They had twins Amii and Eastmann. When Bella told Renee, it turned out she was pregnant too...with triplets...Olga, Hamburger Phone and Ieshia...Hamburger Phone is a whatsit.
