Doc is Carlisle
duhhhh. they're similar in almost every aspect.
Ian is Edward.
Wanda is Bella
not only because they're the ones narrating the story, but because they're so self sacrificing.
Jared is Jasper
I originally thought he seemed like Jacob, but he's more partial towards Jasper, in my opinion
Kyle is Emmett
once he cools off and admits he's wrong, the resemblance to Emmett is very apparent
Jamie is Jacob
the old Jacob, in Twilight and the start of New Moon, the happy smiling one who's so agreeable and easy to like.
Melanie is Alice
the best friend, of course
and I think Sharon is Rosalie
Sharon will probably warm up to Wanda if Stephanie makes a sequel.
sorry this was so long. I have a lot to say though
I couldn't help but notice that as well. And I really had to work to keep Twilight out of my head while reading this because it's a different story entirely, and I did a pretty good job of it until Ian so successfully managed to remind me of Edward.
Needless to say, my favorite character is Ian. And not just because he reminds me of Edward, but because he is like Wanda's light in the dark. When everyone else is cold and cruel, or would just rather have Mel than her, he genuinely wants her.Which made the ending that much better. On the same note, Jamie and Jeb were two of my other favorites, because they loved and protected her as Wanda, not just because Mel was in there somewhere, but because she was a person....soul or not. And I just love Jeb because he's just crazy. And crazy = great in my book.
