Jacob- Falling in Love Naturally

Post by Be My Escape »

Could Jacob fall in love naturally? How would this affect his storyline? Would it be too difficult to fall in love naturally with the fear of imprinting always in the back of his mind?

Jacob did fall in love. He fell in love with Bella He did it before he was a werewolf so it was a natural process. I do not think he was too worried about imprinting either. He said in Eclipse that it won't happen for him, because you have to "see" the oe you are meant to be with. The only person he "sees " is Bella even when he closes his eyes, it is her face he sees.
If he were to fall in love with someone else however, it may be different. To fall in love at all he would have to be open to the idea of love. Once that happened, once he opened up his heart again he may be more susceptible to the imprinting urge. Once you are open to love, it may come at you from unexpected sources. Note the Sam and Emily situation.
Sam was with Leah, but his heart was open. He also just found out he was a werewolf, and would have heard all of the stories, including the imprinting one. He may have then been open to the idea of imprinting, maybe hoping he would imprint on Leah, but then he saw Emily at Leah's house, and that was that. the end of Sam and Leah.
As for Jacob, it would depend on how open he is, and of curse if he ever stops running.
Anger ruins joy, it steals the goodness from my mind, it forces my mouth to say terrible things. Overcoming anger brings peace of mind, leads to a mind without regret.If I overcome anger I will be delightful and loved by everyone.

I hope Jake imprints in the final book, honestly. That way, he is happy because he is with the person he is meant to be with. Bella won't even be an issue anymore. If he were to fall in love "naturally," Bella would always be in the back of his mind.

I have to throw my opinion in here just because I read something in Eclipse the other day that made me think of Jacob and Breaking Dawn.

I'm sure a lot of people have been thinking over what Stephenie said in one of the Host interview's about "A Midsummers Nights Dream." I know that at first I was worried about it, wondering if Edward was going to find someone else or what was going on. Luckily for me I was reading Eclipse and a certain passage caught my eye.

Bella has just told Edward about werewolves and how they imprint on their perfect match. Edward's reply made me grin wider than I have ever grinned before. "It reminds me of a Midsummer Night's Dream with all the chaos caused by the fairies' love spells... like magic."

So... in my opinion I think that means that the imprinting will become a bigger issue in Breaking Dawn. Will Jacob imprint? I think it may just happen, at least I can hope. It would be better for him to be able to love again.
Team Edward: Because pianists are good with their fingers.
-Because he is always hard... think about that.
-Because smart girls know some of the hottest kisses are closed mouth.
-Because you don't get much stiffer than dead.
-Because werewolves slobber.
-Because when you go vamp you never go back.
-Because Jacob doesn't sparkle.
-Because only a vampire can love you forever.

Hi this quote is actually from the "Jake still on the run thread" but I thought I should bring the disscussion over here. :D
obesivetwilightdisorder wrote: I see your point there i think leah may like Jacob more than we know but I think about Jacob wondering if she was still there he was thinking " Well I would really like to phase right now but I don't want to have to listen to Leah's thoughts about Sam and how I need to get over that Bella is going to marry that bloodsucker well excuse me Edward and that he is in fact no matter how I might change Bella's mind he is going to change her into one of him." well thats what I got from Jacob when he said that. When Seth was careful not to say Bella's name I think its because Leah like Jacob. But the thing is if Leah did in fact like Jacob don't you think he would know I mean they can hear each others thoughts. I would have thought that maybe she would have acidently leaked out that she liked Jacob. I mean that would probably make Sam feel a little better. But it would only put on more stress for Jacob. But I don't know for sure because at the end of E. She said " I dreamed about Kiss that girl last night." or something to that efect so I don't know for sure if she really does like him. Maybe if Jake gets lucky he will run across a new face in Canada and he will start to like her. Though I don't think he should imprint just yet. I think he should fix things with Bella first. Though at the same time it might be easier to fix things if he was in love with someone else and thought of Bella the way she thinks of him.
Yes your right we forgot that Jacob might hear that. But I still think she likes Jake and she could hide it.

1. Maybe she didn't know she liked him until right before that end scene. And we don't know maybe she hasn't phased since then just to keep it a secret.

2. If she did phase I a sure she could hide it well. Leah's pretty tough, and she has so much else going on in her mind she could make sure to distract herself.

3. Even if she did slip, I'm pretty sure the rest of the pack, especially Jake tunes her out most of the time, so they probably don't notice. They could also mistake her loving feeling for being towards Sam. (Since they are trying not to look any deeper they would'nt be able to distinguish who she had the feeling towards.)

Did anyone find it a little odd that the werewolf who helped her with the newborns was Jacob and not Sam? When I read that, something in my head clicked. Maybe Leah see's Jacob in a different way now and that's what we see in Jacob's POV. Maybe she is trying to tell him to forget about Bella and think of her, but not in so many words. Then after he got the invite, he thought of Leah! Why would that one sentence even be in there? Him wondering if she made it home? Maybe the fact that Leah was so in love with Sam, clouded her somewhat and then she started to have feelings for Jacob. And if she hasn't phased, no one else in the pack would know. And that's why in the BD chapter, we find out that Leah can't stand Bella because she's the reason he's not there with her. What do you think?

You can call me Jennifer

pg 564 of Ec:

"One of the newborns was hiding....Leah found him - she was being stupid, sock, trying to prove something. She engaged him alone....

Now who does that sound like to you? hmmmm? Jacob maybe?

I have the book in my hand right now, read Jacob's POV with what I am saying about Leah's feelings for him and tell me what you think?

I think that Jacob could totally fall in love naturally, but it would probably not be any time soon. I don't really think that BD is going to be over too much of a time span and it doesn't really seem like enough time to get over the entire Bella incident. If he was to imprint though, I think that would make Jacob happy, and it would make Bella feel better about leaving him.

:/ I don't like this whole falling in love naturally thing.

He could but that would take longer time than what one book can hold from another POV and considering most of the time these books main story follow in about 3week to 3month long period (New Moon had like 6 un-narrated months).

I think Jake won't find anyone else unless forced to be honest.Maybe Leah but that pretty unnatural,the whole knowing what they think part is anyways.
