Jacob would be one of the ones at the fair selling the 1lb hot dogs. He's our lovable freak in any case right?

Wow, 60 pages! I've been slowly working my way through them all, since I've been at school and busy with music. Music: can't live with it, can't live without it. Takes up all your time. Back on topic: I'm currently working through the pages, and I decided to type my comments on past Jopics as I come up with them. I'll include page numbers, in case someone wants to know where the comment should have been if I wasn't so busy. If the same opinion was had later, I didn't see it yet, so it's here.

So here they are:


39: One comment about imprinting: the purpose of imprinting is to get someone who has at least a small amount of werewolf blood in them, so the genes can be passed on (that's in a personal correspondence or something somewhere...I know Stephenie said it). Therefore, Jacob would not imprint on Bella. Even though we already know there's no possible way, here's further evidence. It also means that he's not likely to imprint on any one else, either, since he's already seen most of the people who might have this gene.

41: To edwardxbellaxjake: I actually searched for Jake's name in the last chapter of Eclipse, just to make sure he hadn't died. My sister and I had decided to write a "strongly worded letter" to Stephenie if he did. And I'm one of the few people who's been a Jake lover from the beginning. I sympathized with him in Twilight, and was extremely excited that he got a major role in the rest of the series.

Still 41: I guess I missed Alicia's b-day. So happy really, really belated birthday!

Still 41 (again): I had some random thoughts about the LeahxJacob relationship. They couldn't imprint; they've seen each other, and nothing's happened. I definately don't support the relationship, I think Leah, while just trying to fit in, is very mean. I know she has reason to be, but she could at least TRY to be nice. But I was reading the Old Testament a few days ago, and I realized that Leah and Jacob back then got married against Jacob's will. Does anyone think that'll have any significance?

42: Jacob was born in 1990. Same year as me! That's how I remember. (Everyone remember the books run about a year behind where we are now, year wise)

44: I watched Sky High on Disney Channel, too. I was upstairs and my sister came running up an said, "Jacob's on Disney!" So, naturally, I came down.

47: See comment on imprinting there^

48: Meeting Taha Aki would be cool. I never realized that he was never seen again before. Aaaand I still need to work on that Fanfic. Too much to do! *sigh*

49: Alcy- Your weather reports crack me up! I love them!

Random update on 51: I just moved to the next page and saw that there were now 60 pages! What is this?! I'll never get through if you guys keep writing! (Of course, by the time you read this, I will be through...)

54: I have a friend who reminds me a lot of Jacob. Tall, fairly quiet, observant, funny, warm. And he's one of my best friends. I think Jake has all of the best qualities that you'd want in a friend.

54 again: I missed the contest?! That's depressing. I had a great design... :(

55: fallslikerain-That's amazing! I love the style, and the scene is so touching! No, I'm not crying! It's....my contacts! Yeah.

56: It'd be better to not have your love any more, knowing that they were in a better place, than to have your love within reach, not have them, and, worst of all, hate them. Especially since the hate is out of your control.

57: Love the shirts!

60: Cinderella85-I've thought that song was Jacob, too!


I'm finally all done! Sorry about the humongous post, but I hope it makes up for my having gone missing. Thanks for reading (if you got this far)!

Love you all!

wow. Thirty pages of thread packed into one post.... I'm impressed.

As to Jacob and a hot dog stand... I just get this picture of Jake Strolling around in an apron singing passionately along with "Oh I Wish I Were an Oscar Meyer Wiener"

You know, I believe, I've read (and seen) everything Stephenie ever said about the books and I've never seen what you said mentioned. Imprinting, is primarily about them finding their perfect match, their true love, so then, they can perpetuate the lineage. The wolf blood part could be true, but it was never mentioned, maybe in BD.

Another thing, even if what you said it's true, it doesn't mean Jake will probably never imprint. Who says everyone with a little bit of werewolf blood lives in LaPush? :wink:

Not to sound snippy but it's impossible for the wolves to only imprint on people that have wolf blood. Why? Because Taha Aki imprinted on his third wife and I doubt he imprinted on his own daughter. Jacob I believe said that imprinting was a means to ensure their survival. The kids only need the genes from one of the parents.

The Makah girls likely don't have any wolf blood in them. In fact if it was biological survival it would be more likely for the wolves to imprint on others that had no wolf gene because it would mean no distant level of inbreeding would be occurring.

I agree it's not needed, but it's possible to happen. Jacob has the wolf blood from both parents, that's why he was supposed to be the Alpha. :wink:

Hola! I'm new to the Lexicon and to the RDP.

Because of my laziness, lateness, and bad habit of skimming I can't quite post something big about the current topic. Sorry. But after I start reading regularly, I'll be able to post rather good comments.

But I can say, I don't think the whole wolf blood thing is needed. I've never heard of it and I'm sure Jacob would have explained it to Bella at one point in time. Unless he did and I skimmed over that. I'm so bad I even skim in Twilight. Bad Hito. But I usually don't skim over conversations, so I would have caught that.

Ciao
Oh Gawd! I finished Eclipse and now I'm sad and moody, and now I have to wait NINE months for the next book. Why must I suffer?!

Sorry for not posting in a while it feels like I haven't been here in ages but I think it has only been like a week or two since I last posted. The last week i was busy bringing some threads with really good ideas back up to the front.Well now on to the Jopic.
No offence it may be true and if it is I apologize, but I sort of agree it just doesn't seem all that likely. I mean Jake probably wouldn't have tried to make himself imprint on Bella if he had know that. Actually never mind Jake wouldn't give up that easily. But something probably would have been said in one of the books by at least one of the characters most likely Edward or Jake.

^ On what you peeps are saying about lineage and imprinting, I er, agree and disagree with you all. In my opinion, I think that it's just like Leah and the werewolf scenario. I believe that werewolves can imprint on other people besides just the people in their tribe (or has wolf blood) - but the situation just hasn't happened yet. I think that's why, as undecidedBella mentioned in the previous post, Jake was staring so hard at Bella, trying to imprint on her. Maybe he was thinking about the whole imprinting fiasco and Leah (as that scene took place after Leah became a werewolf) - that there might be a loophole or it could possibly happen.

And I don't believe that there have to be wolf genetics on both sides. As Sunshine Rouge (And Edwards_Bella subtly) mentioned, Jacob was suppose to be chosen to be Alpha because he had werewolf genes on both sides. So I guess that's a 'rarity' or something nobe for them - kind of similar to how the royal family's bloodline works, as well (uh, at least, I think). So I'm guessing it just has to be from their trible, or another tribe near them (the Makahs, anyone?). Orrrr, as I was saying ealier, just anyone in general, though I don't think imprinting outside the tribe has happened before!

Oh, and P.S. YES. JAKE + JUMBO-SIZED HOT DOGS + FREE RELISH = UBER WIN!!
