But I'm making an educated guess based on what we do know. We know that imprinting is supposed to be rare. We know that there were only three wolves in the pack before now, which was two generations prior. We know that there hasn't been a pack as large as the current once since the time of Taha Aki. That tells me that part of the reason imprinting is rare is because there were few wolves throughout the years, and only a fraction of those imprinted.

Now we have about 15 wolves, the largest pack any Quileute alive has ever seen. It stands to reason that something rare has a chance to happen more frequently if there are more chances for it to occur (i.e., more wolves).


I guess you are right... And I know that I don't know either... but we don't know anything, actually... so who knows what happened?
And there was a big pack with the sons of Taha Aki...

There was a big pack when they changed, your right. The sons would have been quite a few, so i guess most of the wolves are decended from the same gene pool.

If I recall correctly, every wolf can claim direct lineage to Taha Aki.

I didn't get what do you mean by that...Every wolf has to have the gene and the gene comes only from the sons of Taha Aki...

Imprining is something that I have never iscussed before with any of my friends that are into Twilight. I am truly fascinated by the idea of it. The way that Jake describes Nessie, how every thread connecting him to the world is cut and only one steel cable is holding him now. How it hurts to be away from that person. It is something that I wish was real, but at the same time, I have to wonder, what would happen is you imprinted on someone that until that day, you had hated. Such as Jared and Kim. Jake said they had sat beside each other at school for years and never noticed each other. What if they had noticed each other and had not gotten along? Would it be so easy to give into imprinting that way? I guess that is kind of the same thing that Jake and Nessie go through cause Jake hated the idea of her.
But if you truly despised someone for whatever reason and then next thing you knew, you imprinted on them, how would you deal with the memories of hating them after falling in love with them? Not sure if I am making sense or not.

Well, in the manner in which imprinting is presented to us, what you said wouldn't matter.

The wolf would likely literally say "The past doesn't matter anymore," or some such.

Like you said, or really Jake said, everything that connected him to earth before is forever gone and replaced with that person...Which means that the past doesn't count... that everything is new so it doesn't matter if they didn't get along.
But the question is, if they Jared noticed Kim before, was there a chance that they would have ended up with each other after all?
