Chaos wrote:I love Edward, and I would rather see Bella with him than with Jacob and that statement is now making me to believe that Jacob will do something that will make her love him more on the side of relationship than friend.
Liking Jacob and wanting him with Bella are two separate things. Just because the reader falls for him (or Meyer has written something in to make readers fall for him*) doesn't necessarily mean Bella will, in a romantic sense, anyway.
*Sounds awfully similar to Joss writing in a scene in BtVS: "Innocence" to get viewers to fall in love with Oz.

Willow: What? But... freeze frame!
Oz: Well, to the casual observer, it would appear that you're trying to make your friend Xander jealous, or even the score, or something. And that's on the empty side. See, in my fantasy, when I'm kissing you, you're kissing me. It's okay, I can wait.
I predict Meyer's scene(s) will work as well as it did with Oz; i.e., it'll make some people love him, some love him more, some indifferent and others hate him more/just as much as they did before.

He could be shown to be a ginormous dork. Seriously. All the best demon hunters are: Angel, Wesley, Dean, Scott, Logan... Or evil. Unrepentant, unconflicted and joyfully evil. In leather pants. Crazy (and barefoot) can be pretty hot too.
Why does everyone think Jacob's heroism or whatever has to come in the form of the ultimate sacrifice?
