1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
i understand that she's concerned for them but i don't really understand why she's so worried just because she has seen how powerful they are and isn't really close to them like the cullens except for jake.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
i just thought that they were some of the fathers that had changed into werewolves.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
for the cullens they did it to protect bella and for the werewolves they did it to protect bella because they know how much she means to jake and also they wanted to protect forks and la push.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
this guy had gone through a lot and that there was a lot more depth to him than i thought.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
i thought that she would be shoked and not really sure what to do and i wasn't really suprised just because he's a big dog. i big cute fluffy dog, that licks you and then you punch him...hahaha
"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. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
Of course! Regardless of whether I prefer the Cullens over the pack, I wouldn't want any harm to come to them. They're the good guys too, and I want them to prevail.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
This part was crazy! I kind of suspected that maybe Seth had become a vampire, but the fact that Leah became one also really freaked me out. I guess it kind of just felt like a curve ball was thrown my way and I didn't quite know how to respond.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
I honestly couldn't imagine how it would all work out so successfully. But I knew that they had to put their differences aside to protect Seattle, Forks, La Push, and Bella. As for Edward and Jacob, I knew that Edward would be able to act more maturely about it than Jacob. Jacob is still only 16 and isn't as watchful over Bella as Edward is. Regardless, I knew neither of them would truly cross the line.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I was wishing I could be there to see it in person! =] Well, I mean, in my head I was there...but I would have like to have joined in on the fun too. ;]

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
Seeing as how Bella never seems to freak out appropriately when danger or mystical creatures come her way, I knew that she'd be her regular old self. I didn't think she'd make herself so damn comfortable in front of her boyfriend and his family though! Bella really knows how to upset me sometimes...but girls will be girls, and this one was much too confused.

1.
Most deffinitely, her fears for the pack are very reasonable! Are we forgetting that when Edward left Bella, it was Jacob who picked her back up. It was Sam who let her into his house even though she had been behind enemy lines, it was Billy (who I know isn't a werewolf) who accepted her, even though he knew her secret. She loves them like she would her own flesh and blood, they're the most important thing to her after her family and the Cullens, her reactions and feelings are very valid.
2.
Honestly, I suspected everyone who did turn into a werewolf, but Seth and Leah were just a complete shock. I mean, Leah, I felt so sorry for her because of what she had been through with her and Sam's relationship, now all of a sudden she's this werewolf who endangers Jacob's life and hates Bella! and Seth! such a little innocent kid, is this massive wolf, what would he say about his physique to his friends!? They were my two main jaw droppers :P
3.
Great question. I actually though that Jacob would have a slight problem working with Edward, but Edward being the good man that he is would try to get along with Jacob just for Bella's sake. I knew that Sam and Carlisle would come to some sort of arrangment, they're both very wise and mature characters and are able to compose their dislike very well.
4.
I was really just shocked that Jasper was capable of teaching such tactics. I think it's because even though he's a Cullen and is therefore a main character in the story, he's kind of in Alice's shadow and I didn't pay much attention to him... I think it was fantastic that Stephenie Meyer did an entire chapter on Rosalie and a whole section on Jasper, 'cause that's how I really got to know them...
5.
No, I wasn't suprised at all. I mean we all know that Bella has absolutely no fear, she didn't care that Edward was a vampire for starters and was calm when she found out Jacob was a werewolf... I knew she'd be fine with it, because Bella always looks on the inside of a person, and she knows that on the inside Jacob is a sweet teenage boy who helped her through the darkest time in her life, therefore it doesn't matter what form he's in what so ever.

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?

No, I don't think her fears were reasonable. Werewolves were made to kill vampires; it's a part of who they are, just like vampires were made to prey on humans.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?

I thought one of them might be Seth, but other than that, I had no clue.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?

I figured they would show up as wolves. It's just a temporary truce, so everybody was cautious. The Edward/Jacob truce was even more shaky because of Bella, but I knew they'd work it out somehow.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?

I thought it was really cool to see their different fighting styles.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?

I was not surprised by Bella's reaction to Jake in wolf form.

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?

Of course! Jake is her best friend, and she had gotten to know and like the others as well. It's only natural to be worried for their safety.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?

I figured it was some of the younger boys she'd seen around La Push. Quil, obviously...it was only a matter of time there.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety

I knew that since Carlisle was there, there would be peace between them...at least for the fight. I was almost proud of them when they cooperated for her safety, I was glad they could somewhat put the animosity aside for her benefit. It showed me how much they both love her, and what they're willing to do to keep her safe.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?

I was just thinking how serious this would be. They made it seem like a piece of cake killing newborns, and it just reminded me that there was still a lot of danger coming.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?

I expected her to be calm, she'd seen him in wolf form once before, right. She knows he would never hurt her, much like Edward would never hurt her. I was not surprised at all about the comfort and expected the kind of awe she felt at seeing him like that.

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
Yes and NO. Yes because he's her friend, NO- because she doesn't trust that they can get the job done.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
Honestly I thought Emily might be one. I never suspected Seth and Leah.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
I thought that they would have a very interesting companionship during this battle. Jacob and Edwards cooperation for Bella's safety just shows how much that both of the boys love her.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I was thinking....W-O-W, and that I was surprised that he was trying to make things better for himself. I couldn't believe that he was once on the side of EVIL.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
I thought that she would treat him like she always does, instead she kind of treated him as a pet in my opinoin. So yes I was surprised by her reaction.

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
Yeah. They seem more breakable because they're still soft and human sometimes. And like she said she'd seen more vampires in action.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
Of course Quill, and I didn't have any idea about the rest.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
I thought it would be alright. Carlisle and Sam are excellent leaders.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I thought it was cool! And Alice and Jasper were cuter than ever. <3

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
Kind of, then no. xD

"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."

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
Not really. She's kind of a worrier and she blames herself too much for everything. She doesn't know much about the pack to begin with, so she's in the dark about how strong they are. With reassurance from every side she still worried.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
I have no idea. Obviously more kids from the tribe, maybe some older men who haven't transformed until now because there was less of a threat. (I know the answer of course, but that's what I thought before I knew)

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
They have a common foe, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. They also have a common interest, Bella's safety. While some of the pack might not be as concerned as Jacob, they are a united front when it comes to each other. Plus they hate vampires, and killing a few would just make their day don't you think??

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I was nearly convinced and horrified that the pack was studying their movements for other more malicious reasons.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
She's in love with a vampire, so I wasn't really surprised. Bella has the ability to see past the exterior surface of a person and focus on their interior qualities.

1. Do you feel that Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
No, not really. I believe that Bella just can't stand to see her friends/loved ones hurt, and she hates being the cause. I think that her fears had more to do with the fact that she just wishes she would stop causing problems for her friends. Also, I think the wolves + vampires had it covered pretty well. Who would bet against Alice?

2. The wolf Pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
I actually suspected Leah, because Stephanie spent so much time fleshing out her background and character before this event. I was waiting for her to become more important to the plot.

3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
I was expecting that the wolves and Vampires would get along fairly well, because Carlisle and Sam are essentially both good men who want peace. I was not expecting Jacob and Edward to get along very well, because in situations like these it seems that Men's testosterone and competitive nature sometimes gets the best of them.

4. What were you thinking about as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I was thinking that Jasper is much cooler then I thought he was, previously. Especially when Alice and Jasper are sparring, I was impressed with how practical Alice's skill was. I wanted to know more about Jasper, he seems to have a very interesting dark side.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
I was expecting Bella's reaction to be something like this, I think. I think to her Jake in wolf form would be far more comfortable and less threatening then Jake as a human. This is probably because she can't be attracted to him in this form, and he can't talk! I was surprised that Edward didn't get more protective, though.

1. Do you feel Bella's fears for Jacob and the pack being involved in the fight are reasonable?
I thought so, she was just as concerned about the Cullen's.

2. The wolf pack has grown in number. Who did you suspect the new werewolves were?
I thought it was Leah and Seth since they were at the bonfire.
3. How did you think the wolves and vampires would manage to work together? What about Jacob and Edward's cooperation for Bella's safety?
I thought it would be a difficult, tense cooperative effort. They have a common cause, getting rid of vampires who are not "vegetarian", even though their reasons may be different. I figured Jacob would cooperate as much as possible with the Cullen's since Bella's safety was involved.

4. What were you thinking as you read about Jasper's exercises with his siblings?
I was thinking that the battle was going to be pretty exciting. I was also impressed by Jasper's abilities. He has always kind of taken a back burner to the others, so it was impressive to see him shine.

5. What did you predict Bella's reaction would be to Jacob in wolf form? Were you surprised?
I thought that she would embrace it. If she could embrace a whole coven of vampires, why wouldn't she a werewolf?
